Join me for a cup of coffee

My friend over at gave me the Perfect Blend of Friendship Award. To claim my fabulous prize of four cyber coffee cups full of mysterious liquid, I must answer the following questions and provide links to five unsuspecting victims:

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood? I have a few. My main friend from childhood, I've known since she was 5 & I was 6. She's more like a sister than a friend. Unfortunately we've never lived in the same state. I can't wait to go visit her & have Tara meet her.

2. What do you value most about your friends? honesty & trust

3. Are your friends your sounding boards? Yes, the close 1s.

4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends? Hanging out, going out to dinner

I would like to share this award with:

Happy Halloween

Something that annoys me

When you 1st get married people ask when are you going to have a baby. We started trying the night of our wedding. We now have a daughter (as you all know). Now people are telling us that we HAVE to have a 2nd baby. I didn't realize that people bug you about having a 2nd baby. Everyone is like you NEED to have 2. These are people who don't even have kids of their own. I wish people would worry about their own lives & have 1 child of their own & then see if they still think we should have 2. At this point we can even afford to have a 2nd child. We are trying for a 2nd baby, till the end of the year.

This is Anthony's nickname for Tara. He wanted to name her Tara Misu. I said no way.

We had fun at the wedding last night. We stayed overnight at a hotel. It was a Halloween themed wedding. I'll add pics instead of explaining it all. We won the centerpiece, but someone stole it when we weren't looking. It was a ghost & a pumpkin flameless candles. I never win anything. Well A won them cause his b-day was the closest to the wedding date at the table. I was really bummed out. Her dress was so pretty. Really different. We were up till 3am & I drank way too much.

Freak accident

Last night we went to a mall for Anthony to try on a tux for the wedding today. So we parked the car & he got out & started to take Tara out. He unhooked her carseat belts. At the same time a lady was backing her car up next to us. I noticed she was really close to my car, so I said outloud "Great how am I gonna get out"? Thinking that she was going to stop. Well she kept backing up towards my car & Anthony. So he's yelling "Stop, you're crushing me"!!! I'm freaking out trying to get her attention. I'm waving at her & pointing back at him. She just was looking at me with a blank stare. I thought her eyes looked glazed over. Finally I tooted the horn & she stopped. She got out & didn't even know she had hit someone. He's okay. His side is sore & he might be aching more today. We got her info & gave her my info. We went to the Wedding party dinner & then went to the police station to get some papers. The woman didn't want us to report it cause she was in an accident last Winter. So my new car of 2 weeks has some scratches on the side. We are gonna get the paint fixed & call the insurance company. It will take a while. I'm wondering if the woman was on drugs or had been drinking. Luckily He didn't have Tara out or halfway out, she would have been seriously hurt. Just another day in our life.

CVS extracare bucks

I've been seeing a lot of blogs with people using their extra care cards & saving lots of $. So I've decided to start doing it myself. I'm going to try to go to CVS once a week. I use my card once in a while. I mostly go to Walgreens, but we have Walgreens, CVS & Rite aid all across from each other (really convenient).

How do you know that the holiday season is here?

You get a ton of catalogs in the mail. We got 5 today. Nothing good. My fave catalog is Lakeside collection. I always have to order something from there each time I get a catalog. I'm also working on my X-mas wish list. Not that we're buying much this year for each other. We'll prob just concentrate on Tara.

Fave new perfumes

I've recently found 2 new perfumes to love (1 is actually a lotion). I have a mini Vic secreat Dream Angels Heavenly & Philosophy Amazing Grace lotion. I definitely want to get the Amazing grace lotion. It smells so fresh & clean. Unfortunatley my sample is almost gone. So I'll be heading to Sephora soon to get more. My fave old perfumes are Clinique Happy & Happy Heart & Vic secret Body by Victoria. What are your fave perfumes?
