First, here are the turquoise boots I am so happy with. They are not made for walking as much as ,apparantly, running around at the playground while Mom chases you , trying to get you to put your dress back on. We had a friend over for dinner last night we hadn't seen in a year and he looked at me at one point and said, "Ya, thats the one you have to worry about!" (talking about M, the 3 year old) I figure these fiesty traits will all serve her well later in life!
So awhile back, I signed up for "backtack 2", along with a lot of other people. I thought I didn't get a spot and then stumbled upon, "secret pal6" so I signed up. Lucky me, I got into backtack after all so now I am enjoying backtack 2 and secret pal 6 at the same time. I am psyched, though I feel a little hoggy! So here is the questionaire for secret pal 6.

I just have to toot my own horn and say how excited I was the other day to get orders two days in a row off my froy and olo site. I got another one today. I just love this! I really do need to get my act together and finish up the holiday stuff. Off I go- time to go to Home Depot. I hate Home Depot. I have cried from sheer frustration in Home Depot. Today all we need is toilet guts so how frustrating can it be?Hmmmmmmm
