Yes List

I saw this on Mikala’s blog, and she got it from Rosie’s blog. It looked like such a good idea I thought I’d try it because I love happy listy type things. Here we go!

Yes to it being Saturday! Even though I had to work… Oh well.
Yes to having a girls night last night. Confessions of a Shopaholic, anyone? (And, yes, it is completely silly.)
Yes to finding a sweatshirt in my closet that I’d forgotten about! Yay!
Yes to my mom coming home tomorrow. I’ve missed her!
Yes to listening to Good Time. Or country music in general.
Yes to making no-bake cheesecake. The crust just came out of the oven. Yumm.
Yes to Christmas being right around the corner. Who can help getting in the festive mood?
Yes to a good make up day. :)

Well, this about wraps it up. What a great idea, right?
Happy Weekend!

Packer vs. Vikes game

Last weekend was all about football for our family. I didn’t go to two games like my mom & brother, (they went to a high school game to see my cousin play). But, I did get to go see the Packers beat the Vikings! It was such a fun game. Very suspenseful at times, but we had a blast. Emily, the Viking fan, sat with my dad and not by us since we had on Packer shirts and he didn’t. ;) The tickets were split up, so my mom & I sat together.

All in all, it was a great day & Red Lobster for dinner finished off the night fabulously (it was my first time there & it was delish!).

Sock Hop!

This past weekend we had our annual 4-H Banquet. The theme this year was a 50’s sockhop. I think this year was my favorite of all. Maybe that’s because it was my idea, but I think everyone else had a good time, too. :)

  •  Daniel & Mya won the dancing contest! 

  •  Emily & Jessie 

  •  Our cupcakes!

  •  Maggie & Rachel enjoying the music

  •  Anna, Becca & Jessie

  •  Becca doing the cupcake walk

  • My mom & Mrs. Carter with the food

Jessie & I handled the cupcakes- I spent Friday morning baking and Jessie came over in the afternoon and we frosted up a storm! I can’t wait until next year! Maybe we’ll do the 60’s...

Tomorrow’s Friday! Yay!

The Help

I recently (last weekend) read The Help. In about 48 hours. All 410 pages of it, on my mom's Nook. (It was my first time reading on a Nook, which actually was really nice & portable!)
As you may have heard, it’s a very good book.

My favorite characters were Minny & Skeeter, because it’s not all about one person, it’s about a whole town, seen through the eyes of two maids, and a young aspiring writer. They met up, after lots of thought and persuasion on Skeeter’s part to get Aibileen to help her. It was really dangerous for them to meet, to write down the stories (including the Terrible Awful Thing) of all the maids lives with their employers, but they did it anyways -but not without a cost. Skeeter lost so much: her friends, her would-be fiance & everything she knew in Jackson. Aibileen lost her job. But the rewards were good too. Their book made it big.

Anyways, I really enjoyed this book, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to see the movie soon.

Just as a side-note, it does have some language & a tiny bit of gross-ness. So, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this for younger readers.

Happy Tuesday!

Photo Challenge: a photo of your pet


Okay, okay. I may as well win the worst blogger award, but I have been busy. You know the drill. But, before church this morning I do have time to enter in Allie’s photo challenge! The photo this time, is a photo of your pet! Well, if you know me, there are no shortage of photos of Lacey. (ha ha)

I know y’all saw this photo when I posted it a couple of weeks ago, but I seriously love it. She always sits there (when there’s someone up in that room) to watch over her kingdom.

Anywho, have a great day, lovelies.  I know over here today’s going to be a busy one.
