Friday Afternoon in the Audience

Our women's group participated in the audience of Twin Cities Live this past Friday - January 18th.

The agenda for the show:  
Tim Mahoney from The Voice
Medium Psychic, Jodi Livon
 Popcorn recipes for National Popcorn Day
Scrapbooking with Aleis
A surprise visit to a Hero here in the Twin Cities

Our stage director and me
Our stage director (aka audience director) was great.  He made sure we were actively involved.  We learned to clap, hoot and howler on cue and stop as directed too.  The audience laugh was genuine and enthusiastic.  Did he makes us work?  You bet!  Did we have fun?  Yes, definitely! And I would love to do it again someday.

The show was from 3 pm - 4 pm.  We arrived at the studio at 2:15 pm for check-in and show information.  We were ushered to our seats early to be ready when the show began.  We were kept busy participating throughout the live show.  During commercial breaks there were audience gifts and our audience director shared wonderful information about the studio and show.  I received the 'Boxes in a Box', a creative game with boxes during the gift drawings.  Our group was able to take photos of the stage with the hosts after the event.

A New Car

Our 2008 Camry had almost 100,000 miles and needed new tires again.  After a couple trips to Denver and several trips to Little Rock we have been able to put on the miles.

We took a test drive in a 2012 Camry and then purchased the car.  Now we have a new car in the new year.

 Congratulations, you have a new car!

Storage Unit Revised

Our daughters have a storage unit for the furniture they brought back from Florida in 2011.  Sarah move into an apartment in early December 2012 with lots of the furniture.  We only needed half the space so we moved the remaining items in a smaller unit before the January payment.

It's organized, consolidated and just plain looks better.

Happy New Year and Welcome 2013

I welcomed in the New Year with friends at a craft store.  
We brought food to share and cropped into the night.

 'I Take Life with a Grain of Salt'
We are busy having lots of fun

This store in Bloomington was recently closed but will be opening in January under the same name.
Here's a peak at the new decor for that store:
There will be a grand opening on Sunday, January 6th.  Stuff to fill the shelves is promised.

I was able to complete my first project for 2013 during the evening.

These are Thank you cards for 'Card Club' - 12 cards ready to share with others.
