Look Who came to the Ville!

HUGO CHAVEZ - Ooops - I mean CITGO (well isn't that the same thing?) They filmed a commercial on our town square - yes I know - excitement - except they cut off the road to the store so customers had to park blocks away - the week before Easter - it was a BIT of hassle - it was interesting to see - it took them ALLLL DAY to set up they changed the front of stores to look like hardware stores and restaurants - they "set up" a park in our park - they added lots of plants - they did try to
"compensate" me for business lost ~ Anyway the point being - there's always something going on in this place - They did pick our town out of everywhere in the US - they had a crew go through Calif, Al, NC, SC, GA - we were the greenest and the cutest
(I of course already knew that!) So look for the chavez commercial with 3 guys getting out of their car, walking in front of a restaurant and people getting paint - THAT'S US! but it was really a Ballet/Bridal store and a photo studio! that hollywood is sooo tricky!
PS - Now don't ya ALL want to move to town? Look at all your missing and the weather is GREAT!

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I don't love about my job!

1. It has seriously cut into my blogging time!
2. I don't have as much time to chat on da phone
3. Shoe sizing - I am learning fast but I always feel bad when people ask me
"does that shoe fit?"
4. COMPLAINING - it never ceases to amaze me - if someone waited until the last second and we are out of it - they get mad at us!
5. Pricing and changing hangers - what a beast!
6. It crazes me when a parent hands their child something that is FOR SALE to play with while they shop (I have a children's corner)
7. Thomas the Train - it's in the TV and all the kids want to watch it - it creeps me out
8. Re- ordering - I know it's a great thing but it's hard to keep up with!
9. BILLS - BILLS - BILLS - I don't pay them but it makes me sick to talk about money
10. MARKET - I know it sounds like fun but it's very very worky and stressful
11. Sales calls - WOWSA - we get a lot of calls
12. Saying No - sometimes you just have to say it and I can't stand to upset people
13. Did I mention BLOGGING??? I MISS all my time to catch up on everyone's life!

PS - i wouldn't trade my job for ANY other job in the world - but I like everyone to know there are a few annoying things! KISSES!

Melissa made pigs in a bacon blanket - there was some brown sugah involved - they were gone FAST! YUUUMMMMMY! Is there anything better than a night with good friends, good food and a beer?

FFF - Mack Miller

This is the "practice" portrait Mack does before going into the full pastel -
I think it looks JUST like Annie - i love it (of course I had told my mom she could have it)!

TA - DA - Here is the pastel - I think it's GREAT! I knew it wouldn't look exactly like her but that's pretty close - I can't figure out the difference between the pencil and the pastel - because the pencil really captures her - but I sure can't wait to get this framed and over my mantel!

Is it me or does she look a little bit like America Ferrera (aka ugly betty) in this pastel? Tell me your thoughts!

Thirteen Things I haven't had time to blog about!


I don't know if it's because there is nothing else on but I have watched EVERY debate and I am a total republican! but it's like a wreck I can't look away!

2. Some of the girls are training for a 5K so i am suporting them by walking on the treadmill at the YMCA!

3. The writers strike and how boring things are!

4. Buffie is a little crazed about the Revelations right now so I am totally feeding into her and am reading, talking and learning about Revelations!

5. The FESTIVAL is one MONTH away! It's my FAVORITE thing of the YEAR!

6. My newest obsession - Morning Joe on MSNBC - The Today show is for wimps! hahahah
I am all MSNBC all the time unless I am watching my taped shows!

7. Plate Party at the Pink Croc - those are Annie's little feet in pink on the bunny feet - Soooo cute!

8. The Tu Tu suit came in - only to 24month but I am ordering a few bigger sizes so let me know it you want one!

9. Playgroup Suppers - they have been so much fun - on Tuesdays everyone comes over to eat and play - the kids always sleep good and I LOVE LOVE LOVE having company!

10. I saw this on Kim's and am soooo interested in it so I wanted to know the skinny
you know I love a BLOG and a PARTY!

11. Christmas 2008 Market - I KNOW - it's crazy - I have already bought EVERYTHING for Fall 2008 and it is FANTASTIC! Did I mention i LOVE a reindeer?

12. Spagetti Dinner at my hizouse - It was like William and Annie were on a little date! they had a cozy dinner while everyone else sat at the big table!

13. PRE Season Rankings!

10. Clemson (9-4)
Defensive end Phillip Merling opted for the draft. So did running back James Davis - for a while, anyway. The Tigers kept their talented backfield intact when Davis changed his mind and returned to Clemson.
