So I was curious to see how my stats are doing since using Entrecard and it is pretty good. I'm not very high with Alexa but hopefully I can be somewhat popular in the future. Here are my top droppers according to Entrecard:

Dropper # of drops

Autumnal Confessions & SexyAdvice 19

Thanks everyone for being so great and helping me become more popular! If you don't have Entrecard you should!

What a great way to build a clientel!

I was invited by a company called Well-WorX Enterprise to set up a booth for Tastefully Simple! I was so stoked to do it that I talked to the hubby since it is on a weekday and I'd need him to watch the kids. With the army being pretty flexible he said it should not be a problem. I called the office and they said that I have a 99% chance of being one of the reps! I faxed in the information they needed so I am hoping that I will get a call back letting me know I got it. Wish me luck!

Oh yeah, and I received another award!

Noah's Mommy over at Project Mommyhood gave me this:

Thank you so much for the awesome award! :)

No Moosetard! I discovered this yummy food when my family and I went to the Christmas Village in downtown Anchorage. I couldn't help but buy a couple of jars of this wonderful stuff! The 2 that hubby and I chose were:

Old 55 Pale Ale with Roasted Garlic


Nanook Blue (which has blueberry in it...I know it sounds weird but it is good!)

I just baked some chicken with the Old 55 Pale Ale moosetard and I couldn't believe how yummy it was! I can't wait to use this stuff on pork roast too!

I promise you won't be disappointed!

Thursday's Workshop(although it is Sunday)

So forgive me Momma Kat because Domestic Goddess forgot to post the workshop..I usually am not so scatterbrained but I still blame it on the two kids and my broke husband(who has upgraded his hand brace to a full arm cast)

So here is the weekly assignment.

I decided to pick:

3.) Describe a "new road" you've taken in your life.

I chose this because my life has changed a lot in the past few months. I thought living here in Alaska was going to be the worst experience in my life. (Okay, I tend to be a bit overdramatic) I decided that after a few failed friendships I was never going to go out and make any new friends because I was getting crapped on and things weren't going well for me at all (read: boo-hoo little ol me)

I decided that feeling sorry for myself was not going to make my life better and no one was going to come to the pity party, not even my own husband. So after everything that happened I decided to go to PWOC so I can be around positive women who will be there for me if I needed someone to talk to. I had met Angie when I first went to church and she started picking me up and we would go to PWOC together. Her mentoring has been such a drastic change in my life that my worrying about what other people thought of me just washed away. I don't plot revenge against the people that wronged me anymore. I pray and converse with God about what to do when people had wronged me and what to do instead of thinking about doing things that will do more harm than good in my life. God has been such an amazing part of my life nowadays that I am mad at myself for not turning to Him sooner. I think it would have saved me a lot of heartache thats for sure.

Now, I can't say I have changed overnight. I think it will take awhile for me to become a better person physically and mentally. I know through God and having positive women in my life I will keep going down my "new road" and be a better friend, mom, wife, daughter, sister than I ever imagined. I pray that my friends will begin to see the new me and accept it. I also pray that I continue to find friends that will be a positive influence in my life throughout my journeys as an army wife.

As I close this I want to say thank you to my readers and my friends who have stood by me when I was at my lowest. It takes a great friend to have that much patience in someone like me thats for sure!

What not to eat while taking Alli...

Dominoes Pizza.

Alli woke me up at 4 a.m. this morning by giving me stomach pains. I should know better by now after all the treatment effects I had because of not watching what I ate. If you ever want to consider trying Alli you HAVE to watch your fat intake...your anus will thank you.

I went to PWOC today like every Tuesday (PWOC is women's bible study) and today we discussed sex and the female orgasm. It reminded me of an old post I made back in May. I learned that it is necessary for us females to have an orgasm regularly (yeah, okay, that will happen) but its not the main goal of a sexual union. It got me to think about things like that and instead of stressing about "getting there" I should just lay back and relax and enjoy my husband. I think that it will be better for both of us for me to do just that so the next romp session I will think about this discussion today and see how it goes.
