Food, Friends, Make-up, and New Beginnings


Last night I hosted a little get together for a friend who sells Mary Kay. Now, don't panic. It wasn't one of those let's all sit around and listen for an hour then do our make-up in front of everyone high-pressure type of deals. No-- it was just a fun night with good music, great food, and good friends enjoying all our make-up purchases at 50% off all night! It was great.
Even better than the great purchases I made, I enjoyed the company of some of my nearest and dearest friends here in Kirksville. We had a great time gabbing late into the night. For the first time in weeks I didn't feel lonely as the minutes of the night crept later and later. It was nice. Anyway, during one of our many random conversations throughout the night we started talking about blogs and how many of my friends use their blogs as journals-- family history record keeping type places to keep a log of all things exciting in their lives. Many expressed that they use their blogs as an outlet to express themselves and even make sense of this crazy journey through life.
So-- I got to thinking about my below-par attempt at a blog I had begun er... let's just say several months previous. And, I decided that this is it. My new opportunity to do better. So... here goes! Thanks for the inspiration gals! :) I'll post some photos from our little get together last night and some of the yummy treats we served. It was a blast!

I'm so glad we could inspire you! I look so silly in that pic, though... ugh. But what a fun night! And I totally agree... I hate those "parties" that are the creepy high-pressure sales things. Ew. What we had last night really was a party!

I tend to look a little hung over in pictures. I am always in mid-blink when the picture is taken. I had so much fun. I loved every minute of it! By the way, I love your blog. The pictures of your kids are just perfect.
