The second BEST day of my LIFE!!!!!!
















So, on Wednesday October 29th Daniel and I went to the New Kids On The Block concert. I can NOT even put into words how UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE it was. When they first came on stage, I cried....yes CRIED!!!! I was just so happy to actually be there. I didn't get to go back in the day and just could not believe I was there. They put on a GREAT show. They opened with there new song "Single" and ended with an oldie...."Hangin' Tough". I was not disappointed at all. Hope you enjoy the pictures and videos. They don't do it justice...at all.

Tell me I'm not crazy....PLEASE

So, here is the deal. I have had the same hairbrush for at least 3 1/2 years. It has gotten so old that it is starting to hurt my head. I usually pay $4 to $5 dollars for a brush. Well......I broke down and spent $10 on a brush. (Actually, Daniel talked me into getting that one.) I loved my old brush and went straight for the same type and he wanted me to have a "nice" one. Well, I used the brush the first day, result; greasy hair. The next three days; greasy hair. I haven't changed shampoo/conditioner in almost a year. Daniel says there is NO way a brush would make my hair greasy. Has anyone ever heard of this!!! I am throwing this dang brush out and buying me the brush I am use to!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh........

NKOTB......Preview

As many of you have heard...I am going to the New Kids On The Block concert on October 29th and I absolutely can not wait!!! Every time we get in the car, my car or the Saturn, I am rockin' out to some NKOTB. The only person that is suffering is my poor hubby, Daniel. He HATES, I mean HATES, the New Kids. But, because he loves me so much and he knows how excited I am, he sucks it up and lets me sing and dance my heart out. Well, I guess one day he was pushed over the edge and well, this is what happened..................

Photo Shoot






We entered Wrinkles into a calendar contest at the Howl-O-Weenie on Saturday. I wanted some updated pictures of Wrinkles, so I asked my brother-in-law, Samuel, to come over and take some pictures of him. I was very pleased with the results. He didn't really want to cooperate, but after me dancing behind Samuels back, calling "kitty, kitty", squeaking a toy, and just plain out being mean to him, I thought we got some pretty good pics. Enjoy!!

Howl-O-Weenie





So, this Saturday me, Daniel, and Wrinkles went to the annual Howl-O-Weenie. This is a Dachshund festival to support Dachshund Rescue. We entered him into the calendar contest and the "Dachshund Dash". Of course he got into the calendar AGAIN this year! The dachshund Dash didn't go so well. Daniel and I practiced with him SEVERAL times at home and he was the quickest dog I have ever seen. So, we get to the festival and we bribe him with hotdogs. Daniel holds him on one end and I run to the other end flaring my arms around and jump up and down yelling his name. They say GO, Daniel releases him and what does my "quick" boy do? Yep, runs backwards and works the crowd! Oh well! Oh, we also bought him a squeaky toy because he can't resist a squeaky toy. We figured we could squeak it and he would come flying to me. Instead he turned his nose up at it! Silly boy. You can see in the second and third pictures just how interested he was in his brand new toy!

Baby steps!!

Well, thanks to Amy Danger, I have figured out how to add other people to my blog. I still don't like how there are words across mine and Daniel's face but oh well. I also want the picture in the center and a little bigger. So any advice or tips are welcomed!! Over all I am REALLY liking this world of blogging!

O.K., I got sucked in!!

Every since I have been on Facebook I have been looking at every one's blogs and LOVING them. I have been going back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to start one or not. If you know me at all, you know that I am NOT a very creative person. I have had several people say, start one, start one. Sooooo.......here I go. Lets give it a shot. Just don't expect too much.
