8 things meme

I got tagged by Emily at the Sassy Lime to do this, so I here I go.
It says to list the rules, but didn't see any so here are my rules. List 8 things about yourself that most people might not know about you. List the person you tagged you and tag 8 other people.

1) My kids are my life, and I often forget about myself and just focus on them, which makes it hard for me to think of 8 things that people might not know about me.

2) I don't sew much, but consider myself to be pretty good at it.

3) To go along with number 2, although I can sew costumes, I tried to make speedy a patch quilt, and it's no where near even, when I went to fold it it was very lop sided. So I can sew harder things but not straight line and straight rectangles of material.

4) I consider myself to be a better than normal cook.

5) I have a hard time talking about myself, especially the positive, that's why for number 4 I didn't say I'm a great cook, even though I am.

6) Growing up I didn't like my curly hair, and it didn't help a boyfriend once told me he liked straight hair better. But now that I'm older I like it. I like the fact I can do my hair in one minute and just scrunch and go, which you straight hair people can't say, you have to blow dry it straight. Lucky me!

7) I'm Thanksgiving is over since now I can listen to Christmas music. I don't like to skip over Thanksgiving, so I like to wait until after to start "thinking" about Christmas (although of course I have because I've been thinking about what to get people, who doesn't?). Although those darn radio stations have been playing Christmas music since almost the day after Halloween!

8) I look forward to holiday baking, making all the goodies, but I'll have to make sure I give most of it away, since sometimes when it comes to that stuff I have little self control.

So here are the people I tag to join in the fun. Stephanie, My sister-in-law Cori, Heather, Heather, Laura, and who ever else wants to that reads this that I didn't put.

Mary Kay

I'm hosting a Mary Kay online party this Thursday and Friday, November 15th and 16th. Come check out the things they have to offer. There are few specials going on to take advantage of. Buy two eye shadows and get one free. All other color products (lipstick, gloss, blushes, ect.) buy one get on half off of the same product (doesn't have to be the same color just same product.). Perfume buy one get on half off. Also if you spend more $40 or more before tax, you get a free travel size satin hands, which makes it totally worth. For those of you haven't tried satin hands, it is a must have, and doesn't bother my super sensitive hands. If there is one thing I would suggest buying it would be that, or spending $40 in other products you want so you can get that in travel size. Go check out the website and under comments when you order put down that your host is Erin. Help me get my hosting benefits by just even ordering the cheapest thing you can find. Remember to place your orders this Thursday and Friday (November 15th and 16th). If you have any questions feel free to email me. There is no shipping fee so everything is the same price as if you were to order it at a party and you don't have to worry about the pressure of a sales rep to make you buy more than you want or feel like. I hope you find some great holiday gifts for you and others.

The things they say

Well Stir Fry and Baluga were playing on the floor, I heard the funniest thing. They were playing with race cars and having them go down a track, and I heard what sounded like, "Are you ready? Hold onto my boobies!" come out of Baluga's mouth. Whether that is what she said or meant to say I don't know, but it definitely put a smile on my face.

The cosutmes

So this years theme for the costumes were the Wizard of Oz. I made Baluga's Dorothy dress, and Stir Fry's Tin Man costume. I didn't make Speedy's lion outfit, it was one Stir Fry wore his first Halloween. All and all I think they turned out pretty good. The kids had fun trick or treating. Baluga came home early when some older kids in masks scared her and she came home and helped me pass out candy. I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween. I had too many pictures to put on one post, so make sure you check out the next post too.

We're off the see the wizard
