This is a sticky post...current posts are under this one. Thanks!
Party on, Wayne! (love that movie hehehe)
I'm Kelli, married to Craig for almost 14 years. We have two beautiful Princesses, ages 12 and 5. Oldest Princess enjoys band, dance, computers and riding her quad. Youngest Princess enjoys Princesses, My Little Pony, turtles and riding her quad.
I work as a bookkeeper for our church and also work for a company that monitors online message boards and chat rooms. I used to also work for an attorney here in town as a bookkeeper, but since he moved to a different city, I'm down to two jobs. lol
In our free (ha!) time, we enjoy camping, riding our quads, and basically just being outdoors. I personally enjoy scrapbooking and photography. I'm also a huge Disney freak! I would love to live closer to Walt Disney World or Disneyland.
Anyway, that's "all about me".
Party on, Garth!

I have it on good authority that, for Christmas, Santa was looking for a My Little Pony comforter for Youngest Princess. Santa finally found one at Target online. After finding the comforter, Santa went looking for Target coupons. Santa told me that it was so nice to go looking for coupon codes and finding so many choices to use at www.couponchief.com. Not only did Santa find Target coupons, but he found many other online store coupons as well. With all the presents Santa has to bring, he was overjoyed at finding a coupon, or sometimes, even more than one, for each store! Santa was able to save some big money this last Christmas!
So Craig called the ring place at 7:00. Dude who answered said, yeah, it was here yesterday. Craig then said, um, my wife was in this morning and it wasn't there. *eyeroll* So we went down there, it was there. I really don't think it was there this morning though. Then I noticed behind the counter by their phone, my order sheet was taped up there with CALL when in. Gee, thanks for the call morons! Anyway, my ring is on my finger and boy is it shiny! The prongs look stronger and I can see the one diamond that had sunk. Wooooohooo!
So my ring was supposed to be done by 6:00 last night. I go in this morning and they can't find it. They check their log and nope, never came in last night. They call their jeweler and the chicky's on hold FOREVER. Literally at least 10 minutes. Finally they tell her that ooops, somebody put it in the bin of things to be done instead of the one to be delivered. It should be there by 6 tonight. *eyeroll* We'll see
Yay, it's Friday! As far as TAW goes, I went to Learning Palace yesterday and looked around. I couldn't decide on any one thing, so I got Mrs. N a gift certificate. Now I need to have Youngest Princess make her a card.

I keep forgetting it's Teacher Appreciation Week. Youngest Princess and I walked into school this morning and there was a mom there giving Youngest's teacher a floor puzzle. This mom's daughter had been in Mrs. N's class a previous year. Boy did I feel like a heel. I told Mrs. N that I just keep forgetting it's TAW, but we really do appreciate you!!
So any suggestions on what I should get? I thought maybe a gift certificate to a teacher supply place we have here. I'm just not sure she goes there. It's spendy! I may go take a look around though and see if I can find the perfect thing.
I had the opportunity to look over the Rugs Done Right Blog. There is so much information that can be found there!
For instance, I didn't know that if you have an area rug, it could cause static electricity, which in turn, may hurt your computer. There are now new non-static fibers that are being used in some area rugs to prevent this problem. Who would have thought? I'm glad someone did!
There are so many good tips on how to buy rugs and how to save money in doing it. Also on this blog are tips for cleaning area rugs, which is really helpful because it's not exactly like you can just throw them in the washer!
They also came across this neat little feature for when you're browsing online looking for rugs...they have the names of Benjamin Moore paint colors that match that particular rug so you can get a paint chip you like from your local store and then match it to the rug so you know exactly what color you're getting when purchasing online! What a great concept!
Overall, this blog is really helpful when it comes to choosing area rugs! Go check it out!

Go look! Cyndi told me that Eric was on the news but that they didn't see it. I then asked what station and my detective skills went to work and I found him! Not that it was really THAT difficult, but hey, for the enjoyment of the story, let's just say I had to work REAL hard to find it. LOL
I even showed Youngest Princess if she saw anyone she recognized and she said, "J's Dad!!!!"
My Oldest Princess is 12 years old. She also loves the internet. I'm not ashamed to admit that we, as her parents, have put restrictions on her online activities. We've also considered using a keylogger to track where she's been. We do trust her, but we also love her. Love her enough to be concerned for her online safety.
I had an online friend who was using a keylogger for her daughter and discovered that she was chatting with older people, going to sites that were not appropriate for her and giving out way too much personal information. They also discovered that she was "cutting" herself. Because of the keylogging, they were able to get her the help she needed.
I think there is definitely a place in the internet world for a keylogger.
I used my brain today! LOL I had a bunch of t-shirt designs to do for people on my Disney boards. I got the brainiac idea to bring the laptop to dance class, so after work, I swung by home and grabbed the laptop. I even lucked out when I got to dance class that I picked up a wireless network from somewhere. LOL So anyway, I got the designs all done!! Woohoo!

UGH! My mom just called me as she was taking Youngest Princess to school. I'd forgotten it's Teacher Appreciation Week. My friend's kids are bringing their teachers a daffodil. I don't have any flowers growing right now. I hope Youngest doesn't feel too bad. I told her to color her teacher a picture instead.

Boy do I need to peruse this site! My house looks like a tornado went through it! It's the The Housekeeping Channel. Go check it out!
It has different categories for each room of your home. It even has tips on cleaning your windows, walls and ceilings! There is even a place where you can do a search for a cleaning service in your area. If you don't want or need to search by room, you can just go to their list of articles or reviews and browse through them. Pretty neat feature, I'd say!
I'm definitely going to be digging through this site! My house really needs it!
I'm going to put my list of things to do here, in hopes that if I continually see it, I'll get something done. Ha!
* Work 4 hrs.
* Clean Youngest's room
* Clean our room
* Pick up toy area
* Pick up table area
* Pay bills
* Keep from getting sick (I'm afraid I'm already losing that one) :(
* Get scrapbook stuff organized for Convention next weekend
Looking back over my posts, it seems I don't post much about Oldest Princess much. She's just in that stage where I get the "look" if I ask to take her picture or I get the heavy sigh if I ask if she wants to go do something. It's not that she doesn't have things going on, etc., she's very busy, just the age, I guess.
Yesterday, Craig and Oldest Princess did go see the movie Bridge to Terabithia. It had one part in there that was a surprise to her, but I won't say anything more on that so as not to give it away.
Youngest Princess and I went to see The World's Biggest Tea Party!! She absolutely loves My Little Ponies. She had a ball at the show! We were second row in the center, but it turns out they didn't sell the first row, so then we ended up being front and center!
