What's Your Point? Wednesday (except it's Thursday)

I want to make my mark on the world. Everyone does I assume. A legacy of some sort. I have big plans for this actually that I am not at liberty to disclose at this time, but in case those fall through I need something else to rely on. A "Plan B" seems wise to secure in a situation such as this. And I really think the newest blog sensation, "What's Your Point? Wednesday" may very well be just that. But as you must know, today is in fact Thursday. A minor detail that I will not allow to deter me.

I finished off the rest of my Skinnygirl margarita bottle at lunch today. I don't make a habit of this, but I had just a little left and I made some delicious guacamole for myself and really, what goes better with guacamole? I submit to you--NOTHING. And since the next item on the to-do list was to clean the playroom, it was just the thing to get me through. Say what you may about me, but my disposition during that normally maddening activity was considerably more pleasant.

I made cookies using spelt flour yesterday. It was a mistake. It reaffirmed my belief that if you are going to make chocolate chip cookies and derive any sort of satisfaction from eating one (some, a dozen, whatever) you have to use as many refined and/or processed ingredients as you need to. White flour. White sugar. Crisco. Just go for it. Because anything less just doesn't get the job done. There is a time and a place for whole foods and I now firmly believe that chocolate chip cookies are decidedly not it.

I bought a huge, I mean HUGE, bag of pinto beans at the grocery store yesterday. I poured it into a shallow rubbermaid bin and gave the boys come cups, bowls, and spoons and they played with those for a nice long while. Sensory learning, cooperative play, understanding the concept of conservation, blah, blah, blah. They were occupied. If they grew intellectually, then yay. Bonus.

The Civil Wars have still not rescheduled their Houston show. I do not have a good feeling about this.

Lastly, at the suggestion of the new queen of blogging, I will be doing a Scentsy giveaway next week! I sell this stuff because I love this stuff! Check out my website and the enter next week to win some serious Scentsy goodies.

So how are the "Skinny Girl" Drinks? Good or kind of like healthy chocolate chip cookies...should I just go for the fat girl top shelf margarita? Can you tell I am done homeschooling for the day...enough about our immune system and ancient rome...

Your blogs always make me smile.

Thanks for keepin it real about the chocolate chip cookies. Amen. Either eat the real deal or don't eat them at all.
I LOVE SCENTSY and can't wait for an opportunity to win. Although, should I be exempt since I'm like staff or family of something like that?
And What's Your Point Wednesday rocks my socks off. Love it.

Kimberly--I would say there is a time and a place for a full sugar top shelf--NO DOUBT! But if you are feeling like not consuming 1000 in a beverage, this is a great alternative :)

Lynn--I'm so glad :) ( smile 'she's so funny' or smile 'what a freakshow God bless her heart?'

Cheryl--Yes, as president (and only member) of my blog advisory board, you are ineligible to win. ;)
