blogging between the throw ups....

Don't worry Deric and I are fine but my baby Divot has been sick for the past couple of days. He is constantly throwing up. I think he has some drainage from allergies he is getting rid of. Now that I grossed you out! sorry!
I feel as if I really don't have anything to blog about this week. I did get to go to the LPGA this week and drive a golf cart on Wednesday. This wasn't for the tournament but for the Pro-aim. This is where a group of 4 people are paired up with a Lady Pro golfer and plays 18 holes with her. Our group was to tee off at 1:50 but since the rain wouldn't stop we were delayed 2 hours and ended up only playing 9 holes. But we had a great time and our Pro, Amy, was such fun!

The client that asked me to help out with the cart gave us all week passes to go watch the tournament. We did go out yesterday (Saturday), but didn't go today. It was supposed to rain and we don't follow any of the leaders so we just came home after church.

Speaking of church we kicked off the "Draw Near" 50 day challenge. Our church is working as a whole.... children, teens, and adults on the same study. During "Draw Near" our church is challenging us to get closer to our wonderful God, to build a stronger relationship with Him. We have a booklet that we will follow at home, small groups, and at church that has different verses and bible studies to lead us on our way. We are not in a small group and I feel like we need to get involved in one. I think we will feel closer to our church and have more of a church "family". Fellowship is so big it is easy to slip in and out of church without seeing anyone you know. Since we both grew up in smaller churches it was a little weird going to such big church when we moved here. But Fellowship is a awesome church. I love the praise team, the pastors and the way I feel when I leave. I feel and KNOW that we need to get more involved and it is time! This 50 day challenge is going to be good for me... can't wait to start!

But a funny side note. Most of you know Deric's love of Starbucks.(haha) Well today these words came out of his mouth " I think I might want a Vanilla Latte, if we don't go before church lets get one afterwards" Well after church and a quick run to Wal-Mart we went to Starbucks. When we got home Deric was really enjoying his Vanilla Latte and mentioned he wanted another one! This is coming from someone who ALWAYS complains about the overprice and overrated coffee spot! But I do have to say he didn't pay for it with his money. He pulled out money from my wallet, so he might not be converted over just yet! But for some reason I feel like I WILL be spending more money for Starbucks Coffee!
Hope ya'll have a good week!

Putting my Stamp on It

I wanted to try to figure out how to get one of those cute signatures at the bottom of each one of my post! I found this great site that is for free, but I am still going to be on the look out for something a bit more "girly"! I found a few sites that are super cute but you have to pay for them. I feel my blog is ready for makeover... so if you know of any awesome free sites please let me know! I will be keeping my eye out! I also wanted to put my signature at the bottom because if you ever noticed it still says posted by Deric. Not that this is a big issue but this account was made under his name and if I change it to my name that means having to change the site address and frankly I don't want to have to go through the trouble of that! HAHA This is also a test post to see if my signature works! Well I am sure I will post again this weekend but for now.... have a great long weekend!

The famous quote of Stacy London from the hit show on TLC "What Not to Wear".
Yesterday when I got into the salon a client mentioned that Stacy was at Sam's... and I about fell to the floor when I found out! I LOVE THIS LADY!! I didn't have any appointments that morning till 12 so I grabbed Shay (my co-worker) and we hurried our little selfs to Sam's! When we got there I was practically running to get a spot in line to meet Stacy. We were waiting there in line while I was calling everyone I know to tell them that I was about met her. The line seemed to be moving pretty fast when all the sudden a guy calls out " This will be Stacy's last picture". I was so upset and down right mad! I was 2 people back and was getting the boot! NO WAY
Well I stood there with my new camera in hand (THANKS TO DERIC FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!) and shouted "STACY, CAN YOU JUST LOOK AT ME!" She did I told her I just wanted to take her picture.

While in mid shot she said "AWW, Just come here your so darn cute you have to be in the picture". So I ran over there and buddied right up to her all the while throwing Shay my camera.

After I got my quick photo with her, she was pulled away. So we left to walk over to pick up some foil. It is such a better deal than buying it at the Salon Supply House... and is works the best! HA So we make our way over to the foil and I mention to Shay "Oh look there is Stacy's Entourage" little did I know she was standing in the middle of them. I spotted her while saying " Oh,Don't worry Stacy..... we're just stalking you!" HAHA really did I just say that? Her crew just looked at me and she laughed..... thank goodness. For a minute I thought that I was going to be thrown down on that dirty nasty floor! Then I had to think of something fast to tell her why we were over there. So I told her "We buy our foil in bulk"..... WHAT?? Where are these words coming from??? I needed to ask her about my outfit or something! Then I have to say "Well, we are hair stylist and this a better deal and works great!" Stacy stylist agrees with me! Stacy must not have ever been to a Sam's Club because she says "I know don't you love this store... You can get everything you need in bulk like granola bars and green beans!"
Then she walked out the side door and off to her next campaign visit. She was at Sam's Club promoting Pantene Hair products. I was so glad she didn't ask me if I used Pantene because I would have told her...... NO, and I KNOW you don't use it on your hair either because your hair is too pretty!
But it turned out great, I got a pretty good picture with Stacy London and got to chit chat with her a bit! I should have told her it was the day after my birthday and maybe she would have given me her shoes! HA (you know she travels with extra)
