Strawberries and a HUGE party!

Well being that Saturday was Sweetest Day ( A Cleveland holiday!). I had told Josh last week how bad I wanted Chocolate covered strawberries! Well Sweetest Day came and almost went. I was driving around that day seeing all the flower vendors on street corners, wishing my husband would be so sweet..Forgetting all about my request for the strawberries. Later that night he had to go collect some money form customers. He took Merci along. When they got home Merci comes barging in the door..."Mommy, mommy daddy got you a surprise. He bought you chocolate strawberries." SURPRISE! Well I was surprised because I had forgot about the fact that Malley's has those wonderful things. So knowing that I had to eat them before they went bad I pigged out!! It took me less than 24 hours to eat the whole box minus 2..Which Merci ate!

Last night was my 1st of 6 Tastefully Simple parties in the next 2 weeks. It was AWESOME. There was like 13 people there and the grand total was a little over $500!!! YEAH. Thanks to Jennifer for hosting it for me! She earned $50 in free product!! This was only my 3rd party so I would say I am doing good. I am excited for the rest of my parties. Want to have one?? It is really fun!

Other than that not much going on. Reading blogs and cleaning the house all day! Loving the Lord and trying to grow in HIM daily.

Really does anybody want or know of someone who wants a cat?? Pokey is affectionate, a BIG eater, and adorable. He was born on March 18th, he is 7 months old and pretty big. We have seen him almost get hit 4 times this week. Our street is a bus route and fairly busy. He loves our neighbor across the street who feed him too. But the running back and forth is soooo dangerous. Josh said the RTA had to slam on it's brakes to miss him. I saw a car do the same 2 times the other day! I am scared to see him dead in the street. He is fixed and has had all immunizations. Ask around!

Donna, I have to let you know, you have been the most interesting blogger for almost 2 weeks in a row. What are all of the bloggers out there doing? Nobody is around! (my verification word is xsxxmxhxsxxhd. With all of the squiggles of the word it looks pretty crazy).

Well I am glad I interest you Jason!

I have noticed people are slowing down on their posts. Oh well. Busy busy busy!

Hey Donna...my first comment on your blog...a historical day! Just wanted to say hi! Oh, and Josh is sweet...Dan and I don't do anything for sweetest day because my birthday is the week before...as a matter of fact, I said Happy Sweetest Day and he said, and I quote, "thank you." He was kidding, but you know what I mean...choco strawberries are a better option than a "thank you!" Ha! Be blessed by those ; )

mmmm chocolate strawberries mmmmmm (oh no, I'm drooling, really)

Andy and I celebrate Sweetest Day more than Valentine's Day b/c my first ever trip to Cleveland was Sweetest Day weekend and I had never heard of Sweetest Day and he really made it special. :) This year he bought me gorgeous red roses and a bunch of autumn-colored flowers (I love fresh flowers!!!) and a bottle of wine (I really enjoy wine!) and we spent some time together which was a nice change, lol.

hmmm, you make that cat sound so nice; as if you were not asking people to take it away from you...lol.

Awww!! That is so sweet of him!

Great job on the parties! Sounds like you're off to a great start. I was a Creative Memories consultant and never had a single class. Not good!
