The Pictures Below

The Pictures shown below were taken July 22, of this year. They are of Nicoles Baptism. The one showing the family is as follows, Chris standing behind me, me sitting ( in lavender shirt), then Nicole, then my mother , and my cousin Dale standing behind her. It was all in all a very special day, we went out to eat afterwards, and Nicole got three new Bibles, each very special to her.

Anyway, today I'm soo happy,. Remember how I was learning to crochet? and made 7 baby hats from the same pattern but they all looked different? Well today i finally finished an adult hat, from the adult hat pattern and guess waht? it looks like a hat and is wearable:)) so its mine, considering I mae it in my favoirte color or dark blue.

My mother in law and anyone else I can think of will get a hat from me for Christmas, they are fun to make.
Well I'm going to go watch a movie with the family..
More tomorrow after church, and I'll tell you how our Bean Luncheon went.

Lecture Luncheon

It is not often that I get to hobnob with the some of the very nice people that live in and around my town of Lancaster, however today I had that chance. A fellow Church member by the name of Mattie Crockett invited me, and several other women to go with her today to a Lecture Luncheon and fashion show. It was held at the Golf Club of Dallas and was very nice. I got to see a few other ladies that I've met going on outings with her and some other members. We dined on a nice Chicken lunch and had Chocolate Mousse Pie for dessert (YUM!!). After the meal we were treated to the fashion show portion of the program. The clothes were from Coldwater Creek and Terry Costa.
There were several door prizes given away. I did not win any but a tablemate and freind of mine did win a $25 gift certificate to Coldwater Creek, so she said she was going shopping tomorrow. Even though I did not win I had a wonderful time.
I've got to start soaking a pot of beans tonight and cook them tomorrow with some ham for a bean luncheon we are having at our church this sunday, and my mother is coming over for the day so I had a good start to what I hope will be a great weekend.

Talk to you later, and have a great day:))

Good Morning to you

Hiyas all! Just a quick note to say i'm still here. The last few days have been extremely crazy, running here and there. This is my second day off this week and I finally got to sleep in a bit, but the craziness will start all over again the second we get in the car.
Well, Dancing With the Stars had its first three night run, and Chris, Nicole and I were glued to the set to see everyone dance, and then someone get booted off lastnight. We , of course used our option to vote online for our favorites, and the one that we thought had the lowest score is the one that got booted off, lol. so we should be on the judging panel:)) Course we haven't had the years of dancing that the current judges have but all in all I think we did great, lmao.
Hopefully when we get home today I"ll be able to work on my crochet more. I'm attempting an adult hat not that I got all the baby hats made for our church project. I'm also going to try a small bag for Nicole and a baby blanket for Chris' cousin and his wife, who are expecting their second baby in March. I'm going to work today on getting pictures of Nicoles baptism up that took place on July 22, so I can share those, they are great pictures.

More later!

Ready to Dance with the stars

Alright! The fifth season of Dancing With The Stars starts tonight, WOOHOO!
Actually I didn't get hooked on this reality show till last season, but now I'm totally hooked. I've alwasy loved dancing, watching dancing movies, and so forth, so what better reality show? I definately don't like watching people sweat it out on some deserted island, not eat for days, and so forth, so Survivor is not for me, I don't like being grossed out so Fear Factor is out too.
Chris and Nicole are hooked too, we sit aroudn and watch it as a family.
Tonight we are making it a family night with Turkey Taco Salads for dinner, while watching 'Dancing'. We also like to watch Iron Chef, that is on the food network on Sundays and Thursdays. Some of the most amazing foods come out of that kitchen.. If you like cooking, chekc it out on The Food Network at 8pm CST.
The other show I love to watch is on Sunday mornings at 7am, CST, I watch it while getting ready for church. It is called Who Gets the Dog, and airs on Animal Planet. I'm a major animal lover, ( currently own two mutts, and a bird). I'm going to post a link to a website that all you have to do is visit it daily and click on the little food dish and it helps feed animals that have been neglected and are waiting to be adopted. It doesn't cost you anything to do , all u do is click and you are done.
Thanks for your support, I'll try uploading some pictures here soon, so you can see my small but adorable family.

Well, the weekend is almost over and all in all it was pretty good. Yesterday I went to my CWF meeting at church, where I turned in my 7 crocheted baby hats that I attempted. I say attempted because I used the same pattern, but all 7 hats look differant. Chris said they had 'character'. they are still wearable though for those tiny little heads.
Afterwards I played on line for a bit, then spent a quiet evening with family.
Today Chris is working a Christian concert for Metro Praise Orchestra. They are a bunch of local guys that like big band music, so they created the MPO, and play around the DFW metroplex. They also have several CDs out. I will try to get there website soon so you can take a look.

Nicole went to the mall today with a friend and came home with another Bratz doll, like she needed one, but oh well, she already has some and a ton of Barbies. Some of her barbies were mine when I was little, so its kind of funny for her to be playing Barbie with one of her friends and have them pick up a gold lame jumpsuit and ask what it is, lol. Its from the 70s sweetie.
Anyway hope everyones weekend went as good as mine. Since Nicole and I are the only ones home tonight, I let her pick what we are having for dinner- turns out, we are having tator tots and grilled cheese, the dinner of champions, lol.( I don't think this dinner will be considered weight watcher friendly).

A Day off... Again

Well its my second day off and it looks to be starting out ok. Of course I still had to get up at 6 am to get kiddo up for school, and I actually made her and Chris a real breakfast instead of cereal. So I feel like I've already accomplished something important. I do have to bathe our two dogs today which means I'll get flea-dipped in the process , but oh well, lol.

Think I will also do some online gaming, in Everquest II, and spend some quality time with hubby. Hopefully I'll get those links up shortly.

Day Off

So far my day has been anyting but. I spent most of my morning running errands, then came home to eat lunch, check on Chris, who is home with a migraine, and now I'm about to go wait in line to pick my daughter up from school. Funny that she gets out of school at 330 , but if I want to get her at a decent time I have to be in line at 300, guess its a good thing that I like to read, or crochet. I'm currently making crocheted baby hats for my service project for my ladies group at church. We are donating them to the Ronald McDonald House. Some ladies are also making baby blankets. Well, I will try to get some links up soon, more later.
A good day to all

Good Morning all! I have a correction to my friend Lena's blog page that I mentioned yesterday. Her correct address is
I'm sitting here eating breakfast getting ready to go to work. My daughter is sitting watching some kid show eating dry cereal (ewwww). She has to go to the doctor today, for a recheck on a rash she has, that is supposedly a reaction to a virla illness she had recently. But don't worry she is ok:))

The main reason I wanted to start this blog, after some thought , is that I want to get the message out there about Muscular Dystrophy. It is not just one disease, there are over 40 different types. I should know, my mother and I suffer from a type called Charcot-Marie-Tooth, so named for the three men who discovered it. In a later post I will put the link to the Muscular Dystrophy association on here, so you can check it out.

Well, its time to go put my face on and get going for the day.

Just a quick rundown. I've been married for 11 years to Chris, the most wonderful man I could ever have hoped to find, and we have an 8 year old daughter named Nicole. Chris is cook at a local restaurant, and I work at my church as secretary. Nicole just recnetly started 3rd grade and attends Lifeschool, a wonderful charter school.
Well, I've got to get back to the daily grind, but will definately add more later.
