Of course, none of it could be more important than you.
Yes, I do know that this was the first thing I did that lead me to my freelance writing career.
I know, I haven't said thank you lately. I would feel neglected to.
Would it help if I promised to write more often?
What? You want me to commit to a certain number of posts per week? That's a tough one.
Okay, okay. Don't leave and disappear into the never ending black hole that is the internet. I'll do it.
One couple even went home with a Pillsbury kitchen mitt. I know, you are jealous, right? I would love to do something like this again. It gets everyone talking and we just had a great time.
Are you curious about what I made? Check out the four recipes that I made along with pictures of how they should look. FYI - These are not my pictures. Mine didn't turn out quite as perfectly, but they tasted good.
(Pillsbury Crescents provided me with the product and information through MyGetTogether. )
Interestingly enough, all this fresh mountian air is spawning lots of writing ideas. Maybe next time i will be ready to stay in a tent.
What? It could happen. Unlikely, but it could.

Each one comes with a set of decals that can be added to the car. Son put every single sticker on (and a few that he found in the art box). For him, it is the perfect toy. Most of you know about his car obssession as well as his facination with crashing. So, he was able to line the cars up, race them, and run them into each other. As he did, the marble inside would light up and he got a huge kick out of it. Daughter has played with him a few times.
I really like these cars because they aren't metal and so far, in all of the crashing, no one has been hurt. Also, they have really kept the kids attention. And they are at CVS, so use those Extra Care Bucks to pay for a special treat for the kids.

It is official, we need our own tv show. Not only is the day to day life interesting - -to say the least, but Husband is now playing on the work bowling team. Seriously.
If the day ever comes when he is walking out of the house on a Wednesday night, bowling ball bag in hand, bowling shirt on, I am calling the network. We will have officially become a tv family.
If only we had a crazy neighbor . . . okay check
If only we had interesting friends . . okay check
If only we got ourselves into interesting siutations . . . okay check.
I guess we are ready. Now, to start shopping for a dog, Lassie or Rover perhaps.

You will never believe this one. I am at the public library. There is someone talking loudly on the cell phone. I kid you not. It is silent except for this man talking.
Where can I find a quiet place to work?
It gets better. Someone actually spoke up! Maybe this is the perfect place to get a little writing done.
Typically, I don't blog about it while I am here, but I want to be sure to not leave out any of the details. So, here I am typing away, working on writing, and a guy sits down with his coffee. So far, fairly normal. But then, instead of sitting correctly in his seat, he sits out, facing all of the people in the center of the cafe. Again, not to weird.
Okay, how about the odd noises that he can't seem to stop making? How about the fact that he is taking his time staring at each one of the people at the tables working or talking. About 20 minutes ago, it was funny. I think I may have even chuckled aloud. And yet, here we are, much later, and it is still going on. Do you think these things would stop happening around me if I posted a little sign at my table that said, "Try not to do anything weird or out of the ordinary. I am a writer and I may be forced to blog about you."
Why am I not leaving you ask? Easy. There is free wi-fi here.
I am thinking about starting another blog and just calling it, "Barnes and Noble: Is it just me?"
I'm casting my vote in the Cottonelle Roll Poll. At our house, we are team over. Wondering what I am talking about?
Head over to The Cottonelle Roll Poll, to check it out.

In the meantime, I just wrote an article about a lawsuit that took place between Mead Johnson (the makers of Enfamil Lipil) and PMB Products, LLC. I thought the findings were pretty interesting. Check it out here:
