I found out of the Monster Mash movie thing from Adventures of Supermom! I’m not as tech savvy as her, I couldn’t figure out how to embed the image into my blog–so please indulge me and go to the link! THANKS!!!

Okay. I’ve been reading. And there are some really cool bloggers out there. Some of them even have blog parties or feature bloggers on their blog–If I named them all then this post would just be a bunch of links and WHO wants that?
Ok. Maybe. If you are good. I’ll let you in on the secret.
YA-YA stuff AND Smell the coffee, Lisa recently participated in a blog party. Well I missed it. DARNIT! So since I missed it, I thought I would host my OWN blog party. I recently have gained a few NEW followers AND bloggers who would like to get to know more people AND people who just want to GET to KNOW everyone that is OUT there.
Ya-Ya and Smell the coffee Lisa got it from This is the story of a girl!
(Psst. I think that covers all the people…Just sharing the Linky Love. If I have forgotten anybody just let me know. I also stole some of the questions from her blog party too.)
So here’s YOUR chance:
If YOU want to participate in my FIRST blog party, First, answer some questions for me so I can get-to-know-you TOO! (Just copy the questions and post them on your blog. The more entries I have, the more blogger friends I can pair up so y’all can get to know each other.)
This is ALSO a chance to drive some traffic to your blog so come on and participate! What are you waiting for??? 😀
(PLEASE LEAVE ME YOUR EMAIL AND BLOG ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS SO I CAN LINK OR POST EVERYONE’S PAIR UPS ON MY BLOG–JUST SO Y’ALL KNOW…Thanks!!!)
Either answer these questions (when I pair you up, you’ll ask each other) OR pick three favorite posts from the gal I pair you up with and link them up in your own post. Introduce your blogger friend on YOUR own blog, make it grand ’cause people will be reading…)
Clear as mud? Thought so, so let’s get started:I’ll start this Big OL’ BLOG party with a BLAM and answer these questions…

6.Favorite movie? “While you were Sleeping”
7. Do you sleep in your make up or remove it like a good girl every night? Depends on how tired I am–When I wear my contact, I ALWAYS take it out.(And I only wear one contact–only ONE of my eyes can’t see…)

AND one more thing: THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING AND SIGNING UP!!!! 🙂
THIS BLOG PARTY ENDS NOV 5TH 2009 @ MIDNIGHT! SO PLEASE SIGN UP OK? :)I mean the sign-ups end then…ok?:)
(This is my CRAZY ME. I registered for a Novel writing thing? WHAT? 30 days to write a novel?)
Well I did it folks. I registered for National novel writing month! I know, I am crazy. But I think I can do it you guys. I LOVE to write and have even outlined something to write about. 50,000 words is ALL I have to come up with. I think I figured just about 2,000 words a day. I can do that. EASY! (I hope so.) I’m excited. So cheer me on in November, ok? I promise NOT to neglect my blogging audience, ’cause I am a Blogaholic. Yes, I said it, I’m addicted. I’ll keep you posted, with a word count and EVERYTHING.
So I’ve been thinking, If YOU were to leave a treasure of yours behind because you had to leave your home quickly, what would you hide? (Assuming you would be able to come back and recover your treasure.)
I’m not sure what I personally would hide. I don’t really have any money to hide. I wear my wedding ring. Hmmm. What should I hide? Chocolate? That’d be good, except it melts. I’ll think about it.
In other news, Halloween carnival was tonight. My girls dressed up. My “A” was a Baliwood dancer. “M” was an Indian princess. And the littlest? She is a sushi.
So cute, and they are ALL mine.
Here’s some PICS…
I know, So cute, huh? I love the laughing and the drinking root beer! I swear my little “L” cracks me up every day.
I did some baking yesterday. Can you tell? My sweet “M” is having her class Halloween party tomorrow. I decided to try my hand in Homemade Oreos. I tasted one. Mmm! They are oh so scrumptious! And this time, I won’t just leave a picture, I’ll leave you a recipe too. Just go to OREOS RECIPE!! Lolli at Better in Bulk, posted a most excellent homemade recipe. The only thing I would add is that I refrigerated my cookies before I frosted them. (It kept them from falling apart.)
And for those of us who don’t like to click everywhere for a recipe, here is the recipe for you, THANKS to Lolli!!
Homemade Halloween Oreo Cookies
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 stick of butter
Directions: Mix ingredients together. Roll into small balls (I would have made the cookies smaller than Necco did in the video). Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. After cookies have cooled completely, spread frosting on one cookie and sandwich with another.
Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients:
2 Tbls of butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 t vanilla
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Directions: Beat ingredients together until smooth, and then spread between two cookies.
I hope everyone has a Delightful Halloween!
What kind of treats have you been making lately??:D
I wish I had something romantic to put here. But to be honest with you, I probably check my email and facebook. Pretty lame, huh? I just want to know I’m NOT missing out on anything before I go to sleep. Maybe one of you had a bad day, and that one comment will make you happy. And for Facebook, I like looking at pictures. So if any of you posted a new pic, I have to CHECK it out!
I thought I would try this FJ1W (For just one week.) thing from Erin. You see every so often she challenges herself for a week. I am going to try it this week. I want to change my bedtime routine. For just one week, I will kneel on the floor beside my bed and pray thanking my Father in heaven for getting me through another day. My prayer habits have been severely lacking, and I need to work on that.
Then I’ll check FB and Blogger. LOL. Probably not. Then I have to work on my husband to come to bed with me at a decent time. Lately he comes to bed after midnight. We’ll see how it goes this week. I’ll report on my labors next Monday.
This Saturday is Halloween!!! YEAH!!! Time to stuff our faces with the chocolate man! YUM-O! This year we are going to a Trunk OR treat at the church this year. It should be just as good. Any place serving hamburgers AND hotdogs and CANDY has got to be good right??
Hope everyone has a better wake-up than me. (My smoke detector woke me up because its batteries died.) UGH!
What are YOU doing this year for Halloween?
So I was going through my dashboard and reading all the updates, and I came across YAYA stuff and she always posts her favorite colors on Saturday. I found a blue and purple sunset on Google that was beautiful I had to share…
I know pretty huh?
Okay. Last night I was about to begin preparations for dinner a song came into my mind. First there was a lot of chorus then the song title…RUN AROUND SUE….
This is wierd because I did not grow in the 50’s. My parents did but I didn’t.
I think I shall blame this little song (which BTW STILL won’t get out of my head) on my Dad. He also used to listen to music from his Era when we were in the car together when I was a teenager.
So this post is to all you bloggers out there who have a song STUCK in your head for a while…
Here’s the link…Listen to it for me will ya?:D
I hope everyone has a good weekend!!!
