Black Friday!

Well I swore I wasn't going to fight the crowd with Black Friday and I buckled! When I looked through the ads there wasn't a thing I wanted or needed (strange to not want something) and when I ran across the JoAnn's Fabric ad I saw that they had flannel fabric for $1.29 per yard. I was in heaven! I sew rag blankets and give as gifts to those having babies and flannel is expensive ($5.99 and up) so I saw a bargain and took advantage! I was at the store at 6:45 am got my cart loaded down (picture above) and waited in the first line.... the line to get the fabric cut. Finally at 8:30 am I was in the second line for check out! At 9:00 am I was walking out of the store and headed back to the shop! I was worn out! Who would have thought this store would have been cram packed with so many people! Well I purchased 143 yards of this flannel fabric and saved $672.00! That's huge!!! This was well worth the trip and there will be lots of babies that will stay warm! Looks like I should be set for a while! :)

Thanksgiving Day!

November 25, 2010: Happy Thanksgiving! Well I don't have a picture for today and it wouldn't have been complete without Brandon there. He was sick and had to miss out on all the good home cookin' momma made. No worries, I took him home a plate and he ate it all! I am very thankful and very grateful that I have an amazing family! There is nothing like being home for a holiday and a home cooked meal!

Pies for the Gelnar Family

November 22, 2010: As many of you know by now, I love baking! I use Grandma Ruby's recipes and I have done pretty darn good at figuring out the way she used to do things (I created a couple of cookbooks but it was hard to get true measurements since she would just add a little of this and a little of that). I had the pleasure of helping with a Thanksgiving dinner for a wonderful gal I worked with at Columbia Ortho Group. Kelley is on bed rest with her second child, a little girl. Shortly after she found out she was having a little girl her water broke and things were really scary. She has been able to hang on and we are praying for a healthy little bundle of joy in 2011. The cherry and pumpkin pie are my contribution! Happy Thanksgiving Gelnar Family!

Don Laird.... Our Chamber of Commerce President!

I love our Columbia Chamber of Commerce! All of the staff are wonderful, down to earth and fun! Want me to prove it? Well just watch this little video of our very own Don Laird, President on this fancy powered cooler. You can be sure there wasn't any wasted trips to find something to drink during today's staff chili cook off! Go Tigers!

Wonder Woman!

This is my good friend Heather Stewart! She is always doing nice things for me and I wanted to return the favor and do something nice for her. She LOVES Wonder Woman and I wanted to come up with a couple of things that she doesn't have so I was able to find a really cool Wonder Woman barbie doll and a Wonder Woman book that has all sorts of really cool stuff in it. She loved it! Thanks DJ for being a great friend! 

Carrie Underwood Concert

On October 16, 2010 my sister, our mom and I all headed to Kansas City, MO to see Carrie Underwood in concert! This was my favorite part of the whole concert when she came out on this blue truck! As it went around on the very back it said CARRIE. She put on a great concert and sang more of her fast upbeat songs where I really like some of her slower songs. It was a lot of fun and we stayed at the Q Hotel who took us to the Sprint Center so we didn't have to drive in the crazy traffic.
