Winner Winner, Who's the Lucky Winner?

"The time has come," the Walrus said,"To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--Of cabbages--and kings--And why the sea is boiling hot--And whether pigs have wings."

I will send out a bonus package of cookies to the first person who can correctly tell me where the above quote comes from.

Late Wednesday night, My husband and I were restless and decided to take a drive. We ended up going 4 hours south of us to Columbus, TX, where my husband lived as a child. It is a small little town that has not changed at all, he says, in the last 20 years. It was neat to get to see where my husband played little league at and how far he had to ride his bike to get there. I was not able to take any pictures, as this was a spontaneous trip, I left the camera at home.. We stayed the night and headed home Thursday afternoon. It has been a while since we made a spontaneous trip. It was quite fun. I have noticed that in all the small towns we went through, there was always a Dairy Queen that looked like it has not been changed since the '60's. But enough of that...

I'm sure you all are ready for me to announce the winner, right? Okay here it goes. I put every one's name in a bowl, those who are followers got their name put in twice, and the winner is:


Since I didn't have that many people enter, I drew a second name for just a batch of cookies. The winner of just cookies is:

DiPaola Momma

Congrats to the winners!
Please email me with your address so I can get your package out!
And don't forget about the bonus cookie offer!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Table for One.. Please??

Since my husband has started working nights and I work all day, I only see him in passing on my way to work. By the time I get home from, he is long gone. Which means I am left to do my own thing most nights.
The other night I decided to go to IHOP for dinner. I brought my book so I could read whilst eating, and just hang out for awhile after I was done eating. When I walked in the hostess asked how many in my party. I said just one. She looked at me like I just committed the biggest social fuax puax! Of course my waiter also looked at me the same way, especially when I pulled out my book..
Is it not okay to go dine by yourself anymore? Is it that big of a deal to eat alone? Is it crazy to want to read a book while eating by yourself? They can keep looking at me like I'm crazy because I'm going to keep on reading and dining by myself!
Also, don't forget to sign up for my giveaway! You have until tomorrow!!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Last night I went and saw the midnight showing of the new Harry Potter movie with my sister and a friend of ours. My sis and I got to the theater around 9:45, by 10:15 they started seating people. Man, there were a lot of people there!!

So after sitting in the theater for almost 2 hours, the movie finally starts. But wait, something has gone wrong. The lights are flickering on and off, the preview up on the screen keeps starting and stopping.. Whats going on??!! Wheres Harry, Ron and Hermione?

Finally an employee comes in to save the day. They explain that we should not worry, they are NOT experiencing technical difficulties and the movie will start shortly.

The lights dim, the preview comes back on. The next preview plays, wait. Stop. The lights flicker back on, the screen has gone blank. The crowded theater full of Harry Potter fanatics groans. Where's Hagrid, Dumbledore, and Professor Snape?

Another employee walks in. Don't worry folks just a slight snag and all will be good.

5 min later the lights dim, the previews start up. The preview stops. The lights are back on. People are yelling and complaining. Wheres our free popcorn?!!?

By 12:45, we finally get to see our 12:00 showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and guess what?! They WERE experiencing technical difficulties!! But the movie was excellent and well worth the wait (we never did get our free popcorn!).

My husband has been off the last 2 days and does not go back to work till Thursday night, with the exception of going in this morning for a training class. He had to be there at 5:30 this morning. Since I had a 45 min drive back home from my sisters house after the movie my husband and I decided to meet close to where he works for breakfast. I am now stuffed and sleepy and extremely happy that I got to see the HP movie!

Since I do not have to work today, I am off to bed to catch some Z's. It has been a really long day!!

I finally have some time to catch up! It seems like its been forever since I posted anything!! There really hasn't been a lot going on, I'm just trying to get adjusted to my new work schedule.

I am however really enjoying my new job! I work with mostly all girls, there are 2 boys in our department though. It seems like an interesting bunch of people, I'm hoping I can make a friend or two.. It's kinda sad, but I really don't have any friends anymore. None that are in my state anyways...

In other news, my hubby started working again last month, I'm not sure if I mentioned this before or not.. He's been working day shift this past month, but has now gone to night shift. I feel like I'm never going to see him anymore..

I did get to spend a wonderful day with him yesterday as we were both off. We had date night and went and saw Public Enemy. It was pretty good. It was nice being able to get out and go to the movies. Its been a while since we've done that.

Anyways, in Ford and Rocky news, Rocky is getting big! I can hardly believe he is the same teeny tiny little kitten I brought home 2 months ago! Ford has really taken to him, most days. Rocky can be pretty annoying at times. He likes to follow his big brother around and swat at his tail. It also really cute when Rocky copies what Ford does..

Well, till next time, I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!
