Some of my favorite things...

Seriously this list is too long. I like too many things but these three things are the latest and greatest in my life right now.

The first is an answered prayer.

Oh my goodness, has anyone ever had these before? Wow, they are so good. I made them this weekend for the first time and they were amazing! I mean it's nuts how good they are with how little calories they have. I am a brownie fanatic and these are on the top of my list. I encourage you to give them a whirl this week. And let me know what you think.

Second item I love so much is....

This stuff is amazing! My grandma told me about this product and it will get out almost ANY stain. Even if you have washed it already, put some of this magic goo on it and it will make the stain disappear. Now there are a few things it won't get out, but I have not met any of those stains yet. It has worked for me 100%. Very bold statement I know, but this stuff is crazy! The best part about it....it's ONLY $1. I'm not kidding! $1. You can only get it at Dollar General. It will last you for a couple of years! Thanks Memaw:)

Lastly, I am not afraid to admit that I love watching....

I know this is an old picture but it works. Growing up, this is what we watched for "family time". Seeing that my dad tried out for it in the early 90's, I loved this show! Now I love it again! I know it's totally cheesy but it sure is fun to watch. That Wolf gladiator is a little to weird and scary all at the same time. Anyway, you should check it out if you every get bored on a Monday night.

Well, that's just a few of my favorite things right now. Hope your Tuesday is good!

p.s. The comments about the pledge pin, well so what if I like to still wear mine:)

Killing Time

Ok, so since I don't have much to write about I figured I would catch every one up on what's been going on with me and my world. Hold on this could be kind of a long post. But full of pictures, so it should be some what entertaining.

Let's see we can start with our one year wedding anniversary last March. Jason surprised me with a weekend in Fort Worth. So much fun! Even though is just down the street from Dallas, it is such a cool place to hang out.

Then later that Month my mom, sister and I took a trip to NYC and had a blast! It was such a fun trip and I think we are going again this year:) Best part of that trip, we witnessed Canal Street (China Town) get shut down by under cover cops!! It was nuts! Good thing we had already gotten our what we needed. It was probably the Lord, because he knew I was going to spend way too much money that day:)

Then in May my Cousin Katie married my good friend Paul. That was a fun wedding to be in:)
She was a beautiful bride!

We all worked in the mail room at ACU. Best job ever...kind of. We all had a good time and got paid for it:)

In June My friend Kristen got married. That was a really neat wedding! I am very sad to say that I have lost the pictures from this event. I am not too happy about it either.

Also, my good buddy Myles got married in June. That was a good time.
Unfortunately, the bride and groom didn't stand still long enough for me to get a picture.

In July Jason and I went to Granbury with the Duty's for the 4th and then headed out the next day to Mexico for my birthday. Tons of fun, highly recommend it. However don't ever book your trip worryfreevacations.com...that is a whole other story, and a long one at that. Needless to say, out trip there and back was NOT worry free. Mexico was awesome though.

My husband is so strong. I promise that tree was about to fall over.

August, my (old) co-worker/good friend Ashley and I got to go to San Diego for work. It was Awesome! Then our husbands flew up together that Friday night and we spent the rest of the weekend hanging out. Went to the Zoo and had a blast!

September was boring.

October was NUTS! We were all over the place! We started with our vacation to Disney World. Awesome! We had such a good time it was just the two of us and we had not one care in the world. It was too much fun. So much fun (and a combo of bad behaved children) that we won't go back for a while. Then we went to Abilene for ACU Homecoming. It was my 5 year. Had a good time and got to catch up with a lot of fun people. See Pictures. Then we headed off to the Texas State Fair with my family. I LOVE FOOD. I LOVE FAIR FOOD! It was my sister and bro-in-law's first time to go. Gained a good 10 pounds that month. Oh well.

November was Thanksgiving with my family. We had a good time. (Can't find the pictures:)

December was full of all kinds of events...Started off with my company party. Then I got laid off 13 days later. Awesome. But the Lord was working through all of it. Had our Small group Christmas party (we are blessed with a great group of people and some pretty cute babies:). Learned how to play Guitar Hero. My sister is Awesome! Spent Christmas with Jason's family. Had a good time.

Our good friends the Jacob & Melissa. They were visiting from California.

New years hung out with the Duty's. They are always a guaranteed fun time!

Finally caught up to January. Started my new job at Signature Floors & Interiors on the 2nd. I sell flooring (carpet/wood/tile) and doing design work. So if you need anything give me a call. I'm your girl!

You are caught up and over loaded on pictures. But at least you are 5 minutes closer to the weekend:)

Weekend wrap up...

We had a nice weekend. We hung out with Jason's cousins on Saturday in Fort Worth. We had a good time, played some games and grilled out. Thank you Amy & Brandon (and Bella) for hosting!

Then on Sunday we watched the Cowboy game. Well actually I was showing off my blog stalking skills while the boys watched the game. Maybe next year T.O.

Just teaching the girls how to Stalk blogs.

The boys after the game.

So there you go, that was our weekend. Hope yours was good:)

P.S. I would like to award Tiffany Browder for being the first to find the blog.

You better believe it...

I am officially starting a blog. That's right. I don't have a clue what I will write about but I am sure I can come up with something. My first set of post may be a little rough at first because I am new to this, but hang in there. Our life seems to go from Crazy to borring all the time. But I think there is more crazy.
I posted some random pictures to keep you busy until I get some better stuff up.
Us in Disney World on our Vaca...

Me eating a WHOLE lobster in San Diego..........Doesn't he make such a cute princess?

The lucky winners at ACU Homecomming '07!

I really enjoy pics on other people's blogs, so I plan on filling mine with all sorts of pictures. So if you know me and see me with a camera you will need to let me know before hand you don't want to be in my blog. Chances are you will be:)

Watch out Blog world...Here I come!
