It's not everyday you win some mascara on the www

Yes, I know, you've waited a mighty long time for this important announcement. And I applaud your patience, I really do. I know that it's very annoying to click on this blog and find nothing new. It's disappointing for me too because I'm constantly writing a blog post in my head...I just don't have enough time to put pen to paper. If truth be told, it's fall and I've spent all my free time watching the DCC. And yes, I will always put watching the DCC before the blog. I have my priorities completely in order.

Since I've got the blog fired up and running, I will share with you a few things about my week:

CraftiMama, Wingtips, Tammy Faye, Josiah(my sister's 2 year old) and Dylan(my brother's 9 year old) are going to be here tomorrow. We will be having ThanksChristmas. Which means we have Christmas with them during Thanksgiving. We've done this for many years and it works. It's not really ThanksChristmas if I don't put up the tree so I've got to get that done ASAP. I mentioned to some friends that I was going to try this new green bean recipe and a hush fell over the table. It was then followed by this statement, "Are you sure you want to try out a new recipe on Thanksgiving? Do you really think that's a good idea? Remember what happened the last time." By the end of the conversation I was given a dumbed down crock pot version of the green bean recipe. I'm amazed at the people that have complete confidence to leave me in a building with hundreds of small children but they think I can't pull together a can of beans in a pan. I'm determined, it will happen, I will take pictures, it will be good. Lawnmower Man is in charge of the turkey...he's not usually willing to put a $25 dollar bird in my hands.

CraftiMama, Tammy Faye and I usually hit the stores the day after Thanksgiving. It's been a tradition for many years. I don't know if I have it in me this year. Does anyone else do this?

The Medium Nanny is coming home on Wednesday. We haven't seen her in over a month. She seems to be living her own little life in collegeville. Lawnmower Man told her we would take her straight to Pancho's for lunch. After the trip to Pancho's, she will need to go to Target because she hasn't been home in a month, which means, she hasn't been in a Target for a month. She may have a bad case of the shakes. She loves Target and Pancho's...those are a few of her favorite things.

Well, back to my reason for posting. The mascara. Y'all (I know y'all love it when I go southern on you) are not really that opinionated nor do you really have strong feelings about your mascara brand and that concerns me. As it should. You randomly pick up a orange tube of mascara because Queen Latifah recommends it. Really? And most of you wear brown mascara because your mother told you not to wear black. Did the conversation go like this? Only streetwalkers wear black mascara. That's what my mother always said about red nail polish. She never mentioned anything about the black mascara. Black mascara is the new brown.

And the winner is...

(but it's really Sonja because Melissa said she would give it to Sonja so she could wear it on Sunday. If you see Sonja being chased by Melissa with a tube of black mascara on a Sunday morning, just ignore it.)

HE HE HE! That is funny. I think you should go out on Black Friday. It is what you do... and if you don't then who will I call from Kohl's crying because I have never been out on Black Friday and I am scared and do not know how to get out?

How in the world did Melissa pull this one off? I mean really! She just has to the center of it all. HA HA! And I am with you on the red nailpolish. I wasn't allowed to wear red nailpolish I think until I was married. When Selah asks me to wear it, I have to take a moment and think about it. What am I thinking about? Is my mom going to come over and yell at me? I would love to go shopping on Friday but ain't gonna happen! Have fun with the family!

Oh my goodness!! I am as excited as I was back on that day last September when I woke up to find that dead toenail I had been sportin' had finally fallen off.

Now that's excited!

Sonja is so lucky. I was just thinking on Sunday (as I was up ministering to the congretation with my sacrifice of praise), "Hey, I think that's Sonja back there - but I can't be sure because I can't see her eyes."

So Sonja. I'm comin' for YOU!I would tell everyone that I would like for you to wear your black mascara when you wear your pj's to my house in a few weeks. But I'm afriad they would get the wrong idea. Sounds kinda weird.

Oh, and what's up with NC dissin' me like that? I am both offended and flattered all at once. ;-)

You know? I got to thinking. I'm pretty sure that this whole thing--the blog post, mascara giveaway, Melissa just happening to be the winner-- was staged. Is this an intervention??? Seriously. Just tell me. 'Cause if it is, I want Dr. Phil involved.
