TSMSS...........Let Me Rediscover You

I keep hearing this song on the radio but couldn't ever remember to look up the name of it.  So one day when I heard it I jotted down the day and time that it played.  Then I  looked it up on the radio website to see what the actual name of it was.  It has become one of my favorites.

YoPlait Yogurt Giveaway

I was just thinking the other day that I needed a day planner for next year.  I have one now that is more like a book and I know some people just don't use those type much these days.  But I love mine,  because I have been so busy this past year.  It really helps me to keep everything organized and in one place.  I've told Scott if you ever need to know anything just look in my day planner. 
So when Blog Spark offered this giveaway needless to say I was a little excited because it included a new daily planner for next year.
But not only that the prize pack includes a coupon for a free cup of Yoplait Light Yogurt.
Small changes can make a big difference over time.  That's why Yoplait Light has created the Yoplait Light Swap to remind people that by making simple substitutions, like swapping one item from your diet per day for a 100 to 110 calorie Yoplait Light, you can cut unwanted calories and help yourself feel great about daily diet choices. 
Yoplait Light yogurt offers 33 different options to choose from in fruit, pastry and dessert flavors that contain around 100 calories or less, providing endless swapping options.

Visit facebook/Yoplait to share your favorite food, exercise and fashion swaps, find recipes and quizzes. Alison Sweeney, host of "The Biggest Loser" and author of The Mommy Diet, offers this Top Swap Tip on how she maintains her weight with a hectic schedule.

One winner will be drawn next Tuesday, September 27th for the Yoplait prize pack.

It includes the daily planner, the coupon for one free cup of Yoplait Light, an insulated tote bag, a sunglass holder, water bottle, and a ballpoint pen.

To enter please leave a comment telling, which of the 33 available flavors of Yoplait Light yogurt do you plan to swap into your diet the most?

Hodge Podge Wednesday

It's Wednesday so it's time for another hodgepodge.  Link up to Joyce and the gang and learn more about your blogging buddies.

1. What do you do at the first sign of a cold? Will you get a flu shot this year?
Fortunately, I don't get a cold often, and most of the time I just grin and bear it.  Unless it gets really bad then it's dayquil, and nyquil.  I've never had a fly shot and not really sure when and if I ever will.

2. What advice can you give about how to conquer fear?
That's a hard one for me because my biggest fear is heights.  In which seems to get worse with age, and I hate it because I would love to be able to drive through the mountains when the leaves are changing colors.

3. Share two good things about your life right now.
My house is clean for a change.  hehehe
I've already started Christmas shopping, and if nothing else I've got the hardest one out of the way.

4. A hot fall fashion trend in 2011 is a return to sixties style...tunics with pants, shift dresses, pencil skirts, cinched waists, bold prints, high necklines and short lengths to name a few. How does this fashion trend fit with your wardrobe and personal sense of style?
Nothing like that in my personal wardrobe.  I don't really stay to to date on styles, if I like it, it looks good on me, and I can afford it then it's my style.

5. Were you involved in scouting as a kid? How about as an adult?
I was never in scouting as a kid.  But as an adult I have been Co-Leader when Makayla was a Daisy and a Brownie.

6. Apple, pear, plum, pumpkin...your favorite fall flavor?
Hopefully we don't have to choose from just those four.  My favorite is pecan, don't really care for fruit.

7. What characteristics do you think are essential in a good teacher?
One that realizes the students potential and encourages them to do all they can do, and not let them by with just enough to get by.   One that is kind but firm enough to keep control of a classroom.   A love for children and not money.  Because as we know teaching is not a high paying job, it's more of a calling. 

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Another giveaway coming up this week sponsored by Blog sparks, and Yo plait.

I have a new addiction.

Megan told me about a website, and once I learned to use it, I have been hooked, addicted is probably a better word.
Pinterest if you aren't addicted to it yet, give it time you may be.  It was a little atimidating at first, but once I learned, love it.
So you ask what is pinterest, it's an online bulletin board is the easiest way I know to describe it.   Say for example you want halloween costume ideas.  Search for them and it will bring up all these other peoples ideas and tell you how to make them yourself.
I have found so many new recipes I want to try, and organizing ideas.
You create your own boards and pin the things you like on them.  Then when you need them there they are without cluttering up your favorites list on your computer.
I have already begun looking for new ideas for Christmas.  And I have a board of things that I love and wish I had.  hint hint.....Christmas is right around the corner family.
