Happy Halloween at the Take House

So Matt was told that he had to post pictures of his Halloween decorations and I must say that pictures do not do it justice it is truly a must see. I also want to mention how hard he worked at this. He worked for 2 days and one of those was solo after I fell in the driveway and removed the skin from my right knee. Lucky for you I am not posting a picture of that. I love my husband to death and this is one of the reasons I give him a hard time and but I love it too. He is one of my two greatest joys. The other is in his arms in the first picture.

some of my favorite things

I have gotten this magazine since Avery was a toddler. I love to tear the pages out and think I'm going to do the craft...LOL. I actually have done some of them. I do like to get ideas for holidays, birthday partys, etc...
I love the Burt's Bees lip shimmer in cocoa shade. It is a lip tint but much lighter than lip stick. I wear it everyday.
Cherry coke zero...yum... I really have always liked cherry coke, but now I love the low cal version better....better for the scale anyway.
Yellow box flip flops are awesome. I own 4 pair that I've had over 2 years already. They are very durable and very comfortable.
Chick-fil-a is my favorite fast food restaurant.I love that I can eat healthy there if I want to...
My crock-pot. My latest one was a wedding gift from Mt. Herman. I cook in it at least 2 times a week. It is a real time saver for a working mom.
My newest favorite thing is my Blackberry curve. I don't think I like mine quite as much as my husband likes his though. He has a new toy:)

What are some of your favorite things? Comment and tell me about yours. I always like to try new things.

Would you like to be on a reality tv show?

I love the Biggest Loser and Big Brother grew on me this season, but what about a couponing reality show? Apparently there is one in the works. You can go to Mama Cheaps to read all about how you could apply to be on the show. Are you competitive and love a bargin? This looks like it would be a good one for Selina, or maybe Matt (with his coupon hoarding self...LOL> I'm too shy, but I'd love to cheer on one of my friends:)

My mail man may not be happy with me. This is what I got today. Everyday my mailbox is full of free magazines and freebies:)
I was going to try and add some good deals for the week on here tonight, but my plans changed when I heard the sad news that a longtime friend of mine passed away suddenly. I really don't know all the details but I am so sad. She was only 38 and left behind 4 children. She is one of those crazy friends that you can not see that often but when you do get together you relive all the crazy adventures you shared in earlier years. She was that kind of friend. You will be missed, Charlotte.

American Girl event at Michael's

We enjoyed the free craft event at Michael's today. Abby with her finished projects.
Drew, my very creative child, decided he was making something...even though it was American Girl.
We saw our friends Brooke, Sarah, and Ms. Kim there. It was fun doing our crafts with friends we haven't seen in a while.
