Ten on Tuesday

1. I am in LOVE with the OxiClean Max Force Laundry Stain Remover Spray! I don't know who decided that white shirts for a PreK class was a good idea, but I would give anything for him to wear one of the grey shirts that I see the older boys wearing! AnYwAy. . .this stuff works AMAZING, you can spray it on, don't have to spot treat, and it pulls stains out like MAGIC, and if it has been through the dryer, it still works!

2. I have been doing a little research on extracurricular classes my kids could attend, and I am SHOCKED with all of the places that require your card be debited on the 1st of the month, every month, until you fill out the proper drop out form. It is like joining a gym. Was it a Friends episode where Ross tried to quit the gym, or was it another show!??? It makes enrolling them so difficult and expensive!

3. I really wonder what goes through people's minds when creating a birthday party guest list. Sometimes I get invitations from people to a birthday party, and I am like, "Miss So and So isn't even FRIENDS with my children!"

4. I am obsessed with Book Orders. I seriously love them! Book Fairs, I can take or leave, Book Orders, LOVE!

5. I got $60 worth of bathroom rugs at Target yesterday for $11! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? This is why I am addicted to the Clearance section, and now my feet aren't cold when they hit the bathroom floor, WIN WIN!

6. I made Tyler a Fresh Beat Band t-shirt for her birthday. I have never done anything like it, but I think I did a great job, and I am proud of myself for doing something she will LOVE! Speaking of which, someone really needs to put together the Dora Bike we got her. . .maybe tomorrow!

7. Does anyone else LOVE the Southwest Airline commercials that talk with the Baggage Handlers who "love our luggage", invite the luggage to bring a friend, Bags Fly Free, etc? (REALLY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO DESCRIBE A COMMERCIAL, HA!) Anyway, I love that Southwest is promoting the Bags Fly Free because it is seriously such an annoying expense to pay for your luggage when flying a different airline!

8. I am DYING to see the movie Couples Retreat!

9. I just promised Tyler a cookie at Target if she didn't ask me for a snack again, WHY DOESN'T Target provided sugar cookies, they would be so much cleaner-the chocolate from the chocolate chip cookies ends up EVERYWHERE!

10. If you haven't yet, go over to my friend Cythina's blog or visit her 3Day Page to make a donation towards her 3Day Walk for Breast Cancer! I am so proud of all of her training and dedidcation! I wish I could have joined her this year, but maybe next. I think it would be such an awesome experience!

1. I should try that stuff ... I was wearing a white top while eating baked ziti and I have a stain right down the front of the shirt.

2. Yes, it was Friends where they wanted to "quit the gym" - I love that episode.

5. I LOVE Target clearance, especially at Target.com when they have free shipping with $50 orders. You can get a TON for super cheap.

6. Great job with the shirt!
