1. Newton Running Shoes - I don't always believe the hype surrounding new products but 2-3 friends tried the Newton shoes and loved them so I have now tried them. I am a BELIEVER with these shoes now! If you run, you need to try them. I don't have the lightweight shoes (for more natural running) because I like support, but mine are more lightweight than my older shoes and the support is completely different under the ball of the foot. I have the shoes in the picture shown below. I am a "neutral" girl when it comes to colors - my clothes, my house, etc so I sort of felt like I was all FEET when I first went out in them but I don't care anymore :-) Too many people have complimented me on them and want some. Now if the store would only pay me commission so I can get some of my $$ back LOL.

2. Girl Scout Cookies - we still have some for sale!! Let me know if you want any because I'm sick of cookies LOL. I have only opened one box at my house and don't plan on opening any more. Besides if we don't sell what we have left, our GS troop is out of pocket over $200 and that means less profit for our activities which are great learning experiences for the girls. Seriously!!!!!! Order some!

3. Travel - So far this year, I have been to New Orleans, Tupelo, Baton Rouge and Tennessee (and those are the places I can remember). Next week it's back to Tennessee to Chattanooga for a two-day school trip. Should be fun - Rock City, Ruby Falls, Acquarium, Children's Museum and other fun things crammed into two days. However I'm not happy about having to be at the bus at 3:45 a.m. I'm thinking I just won't go to bed on Tuesday night - I'll just sleep on the bus. Ha!!

Three Things Thursday!

1. Spring Break --- The girls are off for Spring Break this week. They have been bowling, played miniature golf, shopped, gone shopping and had a lemonade stand. They both earned money last weekend and that was what they used for shopping. Here is their future in a nutshell: Bailee will look like a pauper because she hates to shop and doesn't want to spend money (but in reality she will be rich). Cassie will look like a million dollars and OWE everyone money because she has spent all of her own money and borrowed from other sources. Polar opposites :-)

2. In a nutshell, what is wrong with people ??? I'm not cynical by any means but I feel really sorry that NOTHING surprises me anymore. People are so expectant because they think that everyone owes them something without them working for it. They have no manners, no sense of self worth, no work ethic, no sense of modesty and certainly no self control - especially when it comes to their mouth and what comes out of it.

3. Spring --- I love, love, LOVE fall. But this year, I am really loving Spring and the warmer weather. Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, squirrels in my yard are chirping and playing with each other and the cats and that YELLOW stuff is everywhere. I opened the windows Saturday and the sills were covered with powder. So far, no one has any runny noses and I can totally contribute it to Arbonne Immunity Booster. Ask me what it is and I'll explain. It works!!

Enough rambling for is crazy, I've worked two nights this week and stayed late two nights and my brain is ded...........yes DED - not dead LOL.
