The tags are expiring today for both of our vehicles - and guess who forgot to send in the renewal-by-mail paperwork? Yep, it was me, so I am trying to figure out what to wear (because I haven't done laundry all week), and then I need to pack up some busy work and head to the exciting land of the DMV (or BMV, as it is called here).


On a much more exciting note - I hit my Mary Kay goal! Thank you so much for the orders, and for registering on my website - I love you all *smooch!*! In fact I had one of my highest sales weeks in a long time, which is really impressive because I didn't even have a party - just one little facial and a bunch of reorders. Thanks, again!

a little plug for me

So the end of the year for Mary Kay is June 30, and I am $700 away from the goal I set for myself last year, so if you are in need of anything (something for you, a gift, perhaps) just let me know. You can shop right from my website. I have a full store in my home and orders are shipped the very next day. If you already have a Mary Kay lady please call her with your order - I do not want to steal another consultant's customers (it's just not right). Also, if you see something you like but would like to try a sample let me know, I have samples for almost everything.

I'll blog more after I wrap up this goal - see you all soon!

Who wants a facial?

I am making a rare, cameo appearance in Metro Detroit!
Jocko and I will be in town for the weekend for Andrea's wedding, and then I'm going to stay an extra week, WooHoo! Mel is planning on coming into town so that we can hang at The Collection and I am planning on hanging out and visiting with as many people as possible.
I will send an email to the AGD group with my phone number, so call me and we can do fun things :)

PS- I love Somerset, but we have always made fun of how pretentious it is, I mean it's a mall, get over it.

I went to google and typed "Alanna needs" just like Heather told us to, and there really wasn't very much that I needed, however, I did find this fun time-waster site that simplifies the google search for your name.

Here are a few examples of who I am, according to Google:
*alanna is a unique female that just loves every thing about knights
*alanna is handling everything like a pro
*alanna is one of the least slutty people in the book
*alanna is indeed alive
*alanna is one wild girl
*alanna is no damsel in distress
*alanna is an excellent choice for any gentleman
*alanna is currently writing her dissertation on the bukharan jews
*alanna is a natural martha stewart and should pursue a career in interior design

So I'm an alive, wild, not-so-slutty, great catch that can keep my cool while playing the domestic goddess and moonlighting as a student, and I am a medieval recreationist in my spare time.

And I thought my life was so simple.

K2tog. *yo P2tog.*

I started a new knitting project the other night. I have frogged it 3 times now, but this time I think I have finally gotten it going. My mom and her friend, Lisa, were in town for the Knitter's Market, it's like the market clothing stores go to to order the new lines of clothing, but this one is all about knitting and needle arts. So anyway, they were in town the day before and the day after aforementioned market and of course they were knitting so I had to start a new project because I did not want to be left out of the fun. It's one of Lisa's patterns for a very fun shawl/scarf, the best part is I happened upon the yarn I am using and only paid $3 for it - what a steal!

In other bargain news, I made a pilgrimage to Stein Mart and bought a really great skirt, jacket, and tunic - I know Mel, I can't wear tunics, they make me look pregnant, but this one just worked, so I thought "I certainly must have this." and into my shopping bag it went. I also ventured into the shoe department, finally got some new tennies and a super cute pair of bright pink slides with fabulous bling on them. All-in-all a shopping success, and even though TSM was present, he was like a small dog, yipping and yapping throughout the store but I just tried to tune him out. :)

I find that at the begining of every summer, right when I pull out the flip-flops and open-toed sandals, I have a day or two when all I do is smash my toes.

Today is that day.

I stubbed my baby toe repeatedly while pushing a plant cart at the market, and I rolled a very heavy cart over my entire foot while at the grocery store. But my toe polish didn't even chip :)

Hope you all had a great day today, and that your toes are all accounted for.
