Five Question Friday - 10/8/2010

It is so good to be back home in Texas!  As much fun as Ms. Diva and I had, being back in our own beds has been awesome!!!!!  Ms. Diva was a fantastic almost-1-year-old the entire trip.  She even went to relatives, and enjoyed playing with children from my old church at a potluck on Sunday.  It was very, very nice to have a chance to catch up with old friends and family.  My aunt threw Ms. Diva a pre-Birthday Party with the most delicious cupcakes ever!  Chocolate with rich chocolate frosting, yum.

Ms. Diva got to feed the ducks at Lake Sammamish, and even got in the water.  Of course, that required a quick shower to warm up, LOL!  Her new strap covers were very comfortable on the (count them) four flights she was on.  Austin to Seattle to Spokanne to Seattle to Austin.  She got a good head start on frequent flyer miles!

Here are this week's questions.  Enjoy!

1. What do you listen to while driving?  KLove, a Christian Rock radio station.  I love listening to uplifting stuff when I have a moment, and I don't have to worry about the lyrics ever being crass.

2. What is your least favorite thing about Fall?  As much as I love the weather cooling off, that is also my least favorite thing.  Putting away the shorts and tanks is so hard!!!!!  I love the heat.

3. What does your dream house look like, inside and out?  Everything will have a place.  Each wall a different (but coordinating) shade of paint.  Big front and back porches.  Self-mowing lawn.  You know... the usual stuff.

4. Would you ever own a minivan?  Nope, not ever going to happen.  I love my SUV.  Will probably need to get a larger one next go round, but definitly not getting a minivan.  I love my Mommy Assault Vehicle to much!

5. Do you wash new clothes before wearing them?  I try to wash them, but sometimes get stuck wearing them first before washing.  Always wierds me out to do it, but if I buy something super cute to wear right away I might not have time to wash and air dry (my preferred method with new clothes) before the event.

  1. Welcome Home! Thanks for stopping by today. I also listen to KLove occasionally. There is another local station that I support, and donate to monthly. My latest interest has been using Pandora, and creating a station with the artists I enjoy. It looks like you had a lot of fun on your trip! And luckily it is also almost the weekend!

  2. Love your blog! I can totally empathize with traveling with a toddler. I went from FL to AK this summer with a squirmy 21 month old! I am your newest follower!

  3. I don't mind what I'm listening to in the car, as long as it is loud and I can sing along. :) I'm a new follower from the blog hops. :) Happy Friday!

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
