Besties

I spent time with my besties this past weekend. It has become an annual event as we have been attending Market Days in Tallahassee together now for five years.  That seems crazy to me.

This year there was rain, a ton of rain, but we were able to be inside for the major downpours.

It was still a lot of fun, and although none of us was shopping for anything specific, we all found lots of wonderful things.

We went to Hobby Lobby as well (once the shopping was done at Market Days). That place was nuts!! Apparently it was half price on all Christmas…well…Nuts!  We got supplies to make the Christmas Cork Trees.  I am so excited about these trees!  That will be in another post.

We had a ball together, and was able to make the Christmas Soldiers.  But it is the time spent just being able to chat, and encourage one another that is so special to me.  These girl friends are like family to me.  I so cherish our time together.

Who do you choose to be with?  What would you change about the time spent if you could?

Blessings.

Terrifying & Amazing

Definitely terrifying and amazing…loving life right now.

What are you pursuing…is it terrifying?  Exhilarating?  What small changes can you make to add a spark to your goals?  Can you encourage someone with their goals?

Blessings!

Beeswax Wraps

I have seen several articles on the benefits of reusable beeswax wrap, and some cons.  Primarily that they are reusable, washable, and cute. Although, The Kitchn wrote a great Pros and Cons article on a specific brand, I purchased a homemade set at a local street fest.

I am not impressed by the functionality of these at all. I tried the pink one one a bowl. It was like a napkin without a seal. So now they stored in a drawer, and I might try to use them again although I highly doubt it.

Have you tried using these? What has been your experience?

Blessings.

David’s Episode

  This link will take you to YouTube Channel.

David talked about his experience, and after seeing the episode, I feel like I need to have an intervention over my facial expressions! Ha.  Oh well.  It is who I am, and they did well with editing.  I didn’t know what to do with my hands!

Now we wait on the check to arrive (they mail it 30 days after the show airs), and then to pay the IRS.  We have a lot of bills to pay from when we got behind in life.  This will so help us crawl out of that hole.

I am feeling incredibly blessed with this man (and my family).  I am so very proud to be his wife, and share in this amazing adventure together.  We both have a great jobs, and a roof (although it needs to replaced) over our heads.  We are doing well.  This is such a bonus.

Feeling extremely grateful.

David’s Thoughts – Millionaire

So, five months after taking the initial audition test, my episode of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” finally aired last night. I have to say, I am pretty proud of how Jerry and I did. While I would have loved to have won more money, the $50,000 we did win was, as Chris Harrison said at the end of the episode, “Not a bad paycheck for 30 minutes work!”

Looking back, I am happy with the game I played. I used all my lifelines when I needed them, I thought through the questions, and I didn’t take any significant risks. (Of course, getting questions that happened to line up with the storehouse of weird knowledge I keep in my head helped immensely!)

Overall, the entire experience was an amazing adventure! And I have to say, we especially enjoyed meeting and working with the cast and crew of the show. From the folks that hosted the original test, to the producers that I interviewed with, to the production staff that took such good care of us at the studio, they couldn’t have been more supportive or encouraging. A lot of unseen work goes into making sure the final production looks good on the screen, and those folks deserve far more recognition and respect than they typically receive. So, to all of them, I offer my sincerest thanks.

If you ever get the chance to audition, I would highly recommend it! It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I am so very grateful to have been able to experience it.
