Twilighters Anonymous Quiz

My friend Heather had this on her blog yesterday and of course I had to participate! So, here are the results, check it out, who are you? www.twilightersanonymous.com

You are intelligent, outgoing & stylish. A true girly girl, you love shopping & makeovers.
Although you are a generous friend, you can be coy, tricky & very persuasive in order to
get your way. You are known to zone out occasionally during conversations, but your
friends forgive you because you are understanding, supportive & know how to throw one
heck of a party!

Baby Shower Game - Redone

So, it's really no secret that I am a pig. OK, maybe it is, I have come to realize I am the best hider in the world! I have way to many stashes that need to be visited once in awhile and seeing how we are beginning to move, I thought I should start with the small stashes and move to the big ones. Which means, the kitchen junk drawer........ don't even pretend you don't have one!

Alright, here's the "baby shower" game. Remember this one, the host brings out a basket full of baby paraphenalia, lets you have a quick look then takes it away and asks you write down as many thing as you can remember from memory. Take a look at the photo for a few seconds (don't cheat!) then go into comments and write as many things as you can remember.
Could be fun, right?

Betty Crapper

-Definitions found in Wikipedia-

Betty Crocker, an invented persona and cultural icon, is a brand name and trademark of American food company General Mills. The name was first developed by the Washburn Crosby Company in 1921 as a way to give a personalized response to consumer product questions. The name Betty was selected because it was viewed as a cheery, All-American name. It was paired with the last name Crocker, in honor of William Crocker, a Washburn Crosby Company director.

Betty Crapper, an actual person living in Murray, Utah. In 1998 she began trying her hand at cooking and baking with dire results. The name Betty Crapper, soon became her affectionately given name by many who were effected by her "crappy" skills in the kitchen. (anyone remember the monkey bread incident?)

Once again, I fell into a delusional state and had myself convinced that I could bake. My attempt at zucchini bread...... failed miserably. I am mystified!!! It started out so well, I followed the instructions given by Ms. Paula Dean, to a T. Where I went wrong is a total mystery, but true to form, there was smoke and lots of it. Unbelievable! I keep thinking at some point I will be rewarded for my efforts, but not this time.
Sorry Betty, I think you suck!!!

Nichole - my Cousin, my Sister, my Friend

You should all be so lucky to have Nichole in your lives. On the other hand, I may just keep her to myself, that is how much I love her. Through a series of events in the last 6 months, I have been blessed to spend an unusual amount of time with her, seeing how she lives in Phoenix. I feel like we have been able to talk more and get to know each other more. I have found that we have much more in common than just our birthday. She is a wonderful mom. I love to watch her with her two children, she is patient and loving. She adores doing things for her family, and lives to make sure Ryan and the kids are happy and taken care of. I'm pretty sure Ryan thinks she hung the moon. The way he is with her speaks volumes, simply put you can tell he adores her. She is a very devoted sister. She loves her family and speaks very highly of them. She is an amazing hostess! Every time we visit their home, she has prepared a huge breakfast spread that makes us all look bad (you should see the looks that I get from Corey that say, "Why can't you do this?"), and always has plenty of home made treats for everyone. Aside from that she is a wonderful cook, she is my hero when it comes to baking/cooking! She is also super creative and clever when it comes to her home, scrapbooks and card making.

Plain and simply, I really love Nichole and hope you are lucky enough
one day to meet her if you haven't already!
