Color Career Test

My friend Lara found this color career test and posted it on her blog. It seemed pretty cool, so I went and took it here. I think its somewhat accurate, but you tell me. Others see people differently than they see themselves. Here are my results;

Oh What a Mess

Sunday we went to my in laws house for dinner and a combined birthday celebration(I know, my birthday was in Aug, but we hadn't been able to go there for almost a month) for Taryn and I. We had a yummy dinner and a scrumptious dessert complete with candles.



Later, while all the adults were playing games, Taryn and Lily found the tissue boxes and decided to have a little fun. Lily's mom, Sarah, caught them and we all got our cameras and took pictures of the evidence. What a mess, but boy did they have fun!
Speaking of messes...I don't know whats up with my hair. All my life its been a little wavy, but the last few years, its gotten considerably more so. I cant figure out how to control it and make it look good. ARAAAAGHHHH! I need a hair intervention.

Taryn's 2nd Birthday

Friday was my baby's 2nd birthday. We had a nice little party for her and she got gifts that she LOVES! Every one was well thought out--my thanks to all on her behalf. She is getting So Big and her vocabulary has taken off. Shes very smart and perceptive. Sometimes I get a kick out of the things she says and amazed at some of the things she understands.



I had Taryn practice telling people she was two for about a week before her birthday so she could wow everyone :)
We had a nice birthday breakfast for Taryn. We had to get up early so we could do it before Auralee left for school. Banana chocolate chip pancakes are pretty good. YUMMMM!

Here's a little clip of Taryn blowing out her candles. She needs a hair cut, but shes still a cutie!

Its all in how you look at it

I got a visit from my friendly not-so-close-neighborhood Kirby guy. Ive been around Kirbys for a while, and I know how good they are, but I wont be able to afford one for A VERY LONG TIME. I was promised a carpet cleaning and I really needed one, so I let the 19 year old kid who REALLY wanted to win a trip on a cruise, show me all the things I already knew. I like my current vacuum, don't get me wrong, but Kirbys are really good. I also believe a healthy dose of denial is a good thing. When you don't know what your missing, you can be content that what you have is good enough. You can believe that your house is clean when you cant SEE the evidence that its not. I mean REALLY, who is it hurting when you are ignorant of the truth. I really didn't need to see all the dirt my vacuum left behind and I REALLY DIDN'T NEED TO SEE ALL THE CRUD PULLED FROM MY MATTRESS! I was blissfully unaware of my filth. But, Taryn's birthday is tomorrow and now I have a REALLY CLEAN CARPET for my guests.
And hey, IT WAS FREE! Even if I will have nightmares because of it.

PS hopefully my computer will be fixed soon so I can get back to my regular blogging. I'll have lots of pics from Taryn's birthday party to post, so wish me luck!

Computer Problems

My computer has been making funny noises. Since it has crashed 3 times since we bought it 4 or so years ago, we don't want to take any chances. We've even replaced the hard drive recently, but still something is wrong. My wonderful brother-in-law, Tommy, helped me back my important stuff up and we've had it off unless absolutely necessary. It makes it kind of hard to keep up with my blogging, but since I can use my husbands laptop, I can do a little bit. I REALLY hope nothing serious is wrong and whatever is can be fixed quickly and easily. Wish me luck!
