Okay Ladies! I am going to get my hair done on Wednesday! And here lately I just cannot decide how I want my hair! Each time I go to the salon I end up with totally different hair!

Please leave a comment and let me know which cut and color you like best!

Kreativ Blogger Award

Yay! I received a blog award! My super creative friend Emily graciously gave me the honors! Sorry it has taken me so long to blog about it Emily!

Basically, the award requires that you blog 6 interesting facts about yourself and then tag 6 friends to do the same!

Some interesting facts about me:

1) I am totally OCD about organization (kinda like Emily)! It doesn't matter if it is my pantry, my closet, the garage, etc! Everything has to have a perfect spot! And I cannot function if an item is not exactly where it is suppose to be! For instance, I have a book on my coffee table! Each night we eat at the coffee table. After dinner I have to put the book and surronding items exactly in there spot before I can move onto watching tv or whatever.

2) I absolutely love animals! When I was little I wanted to be a vet, but I really should just live on a farm. In all seriousness I want a pot belly pig named Cecil, a dog of every breed, a mini-horse, an aquarium, etc. Anytime I hear of an animal that needs a home I want to volunteer! Animals are just so entertaining - maybe I have seen too many animated cartoons!

3) While on the subject of animals, Wayne suggested that I also list my impressive list of animals that I have successfully hunted! Myhusband would hunt anything, so lucky me has had to chance to hunt lots! My current list of kills includes dove, duck, deer, geese, and frogs! My favorite type of hunting is dove followed closely by frogs! I also like duck hunting, but it gets really cold! And deer is my least favorite bc you have still, quiet, and bored!

4) My secret wish is to be the Governor of Mississippi! I have a bit of an obsession with politics which is a result of my volunteer experience with the Southern Women in Public Service Conference (SWIPS) in college. Of course, it grew from there! For me, it is amazing how a small group of people (politicans), can be such a catalyst for change! I love it!

5) I am a retired pageant girl! Ha! I was Miss W 2004 and Miss Houston North Central 2006, so I competed in Miss Mississippi two times! I had so much fun with it! And I met some really incredible people! But I am retired!

6) I am highly allergic to cats, poison ivy/oak, and ants! So, I basically carry benadryl everywhere I go! To this day I cannot pet a cat without it resulting in a swollen red face - this is partically difficult bc Wayne's family has a cat! And every time Wayne goes to hang deer stands he brings back poison ivy! Although you would hardly know that he has it I make him wear long sleeves to bed for a week. Nonetheless, I have it all over me in a matter of days! I cannot remember a year when I did not get poison ivy! And then there are the ants! The word just makes my skin crawl - just one could bit my foot and it would swell like a watermelon!

Well, that is enough about me! I am going to tag Leigha, Katy, Shelley, Mary Martha, Lori Beth, and Jenny Lynne as recepients of the Kreativ Blog Award! Have fun girls!

My Baby Girl!

Oh how I love my lil black girl! Is she the cutest thing you have ever seen? With all of the recent updates on Neeli and her hunt tests, I thought Nova needed her 15 mintues of fame! Nova is now fully grown - she weighs 17lbs! But when her hair starts to fro (Wayne calls it fluffy) you would swear that she weighs 30lbs - she is so cuddly! On a typical day Nova wears her pink MSU collar, but she also likes to wear her pink scarf. She is also getting used to wearing t-shirts - of course, she and Neeli have a matching wardrobe! She always has the most adorable somber expression, but when you talk to her she opens her mouth like she is going to talk back or when you say kisses she licks you - how sweet! She is still going with me everwhere - except for work! Her favorite place is Chick-Fil-A bc they give her a treat! And she really loves her big sister, Neeli - she could play with her for hours! She still sleeps in her kennel during the day and at night (we learned our lesson when we let her sleep with us)! Needless to say, I love her to death! She makes me smile! You should come by to visit - she will welcome you with her excited pee!

Remember to Vote!

Election Day is finally here! I can hardly believe it! After 2 years of political advertising, I am so glad that this day has arrived! After standing in line for 1 hour and 45 minutes, I was able to cast my vote in the most historical election in our nations history! Yes, it was hot! Yes, I was regretting wearing 5 inch heels! Yes, the poison ivy on my arm got hot causing it to spread! Yes, I was mad to learn it only took Wayne 3 minutes to vote! But my voice was heard, and I got a free chicken biscuit at Chick-Fil-A! Life is good!

Congrats Neeli!

Neeli competed in her first AKC trial this weekend - she ran in the Senior test! Going into the weekend Wayne said he would be happy with one pass, but Neeli does really well under pressure! She passed both days! Go Neeli! She will have to pass three more AKC Senior tests to earn her Senior AKC title.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is my favorite "fun" holiday! I just love dressing up! Apparently I have rubbed off on Wayne bc he was very excited about dressing up for Halloween this year! In fact, he decided that we should go as one another. He would be a beauty queen, and I would be a baseball player! After searching Jackson for white baseball pants, I realized that dream would not become a reality! Nonetheless, Wayne still wanted to be a beauty queen! And I dug through the costume closet and found a cute 70's disco girl costume!

And, of course, we went to a Halloween Party at Lake Caroline that John Polles was throwing! Jamie & Josh (cowgirl and cowboy) and Anna & Andy (pregnant Barbie Basset and partly cloudy with a chance of rain) joined us for the preparty at our house!
We had a very fun Halloween! Hope you did too!
