Yo-Yo Barettes & a Meme

I wanted to show you all the cutest barettes that I purchased from Kate through her newest Etsy store, The Buzy Bee. You can also find Kate to the side in my Bloggin' Buddies under Kate's Kountry Kottage. She's got a new blogging name....A little of This and That. Here's a link to her blog.
If you love these little barettes or are into scrapbooking, take a look! She's got some really cute things. Thanks so much, Kate, for the speedy delivery too.

Joy just loves her barettes. She chose the lime green one today to wear and you would have thought we ordered the top to go with it....we had a perfect match. We met some friends for lunch and they just loved it! She's planning on wearing it to church this evening too. Here she is modeling it for you:

And a little closer:

Isn't it just adorable? I just saw where she has these on ponytail holders. I think we're going to have to eventually get some of those. Joy wears her hair in a ponytail so much!

And on another note, I've also been tagged by Ms. Deb of Deb's Country Kisses with a meme. Thanks so much, Deb. I assure are WAY more interesting than me! I mean how can I compete with taking your husband breakfast in bed EVERY Saturday and Sunday morning! You're an angel!

Okay, here goes:

I was asked to do the following:

Name 5 things I do for myself:

1) Try to find at least one thing to look forward to everyday.
2) Put makeup on everyday (I also do it for my hubby).
3) My time on the computer blogging and the CS forum.
4) Color my hair (you just never's one thing I'm daring with).
5) Search out country decorating goodies for my home.

Name 5 kind things I do for friends, my children, or partner:

1) Pray with and over both of my children every night as they go to bed asking
God's blessing and protection over them.
2) Iron my husband's clothes every night and lay them out for him for the next
3) Take my mom to Dr. appointments.
4) Teach my children at home.
5) Coordinate our local homeschool support group.

Name 5 kind things I've done for a stranger:

1) Invited an eldery couple in my home when their vehicle broke down near our
house...visited with them and gave them a cool drink and snack.
2) Helped a few people in those motorized shopping carts at Walmart get items
from a high shelf that they couldn't reach when I saw them having trouble.
3) Took pictures of a girl and her family when she was leaving for Iraq. They
didn't have a camera except for a cell phone, so I offered and emailed the
photos to them.
4) Dialed a wrong number by accident and carried on a conversation with this
lady for awhile about her family. My family couldn't believe I didn't know
her (or her name) when I got off the phone.
5) Try to remember to always hold doors open for people when we're out.

Name 5 hobbies I enjoy:

1) Decorating my style.
2) Photography
3) Blogging/CS Forum
4) Scrapbooking
5) Reading

Tag 5 people to do the same: (only if you want to participate!)

Tomatoe Creek Prims (Rondell)
3 Guys, a Girl, and a Prim Place (Kindra)
And Baby Makes Five (Colleen)
The Country Blossom (Katy)
Country Girl at Heart (Julie)

Thanks, that was fun! :)

It was so fun to learn a little about Tammy today! You are just so kind and full of love that those things listed don't surprise me. :) Yes, I'll have to participate in the meme, thanks for listing me!

I love the yo-yo barrettes! If I had a girl I would of bought the same set. Your daughter is so cute. Kate is a busy gal with 2 etsy stores and a website! She's very talented! Hope you have a great day, Tammy!

HI Tammy,

Thanks for you sweet comments! I'll try to explain how to turn something into a link.

When you are typing your post, type the exact words you want to appear. For instance, if you wanted to type about my blog and make it a link, type Behind My Red Door. Then to make that link to my blog, highlight Behind MY Red Door with the cursor (like you are going to copy and paste). While it is highlighted, click on the little symbol above the text box that looks sort of like a paperclip over a green dot. A small window should open for you to type in the URL address for my blog. (so you have to know the actual words you want to appear in the blog, and the URL address before you start) Once you type the URL address in that windwo, click OK and then finish your post.

You can practice that and then just not publish the post. Good luck and let me know if it works for you!

What a fun post, Tammy! Snazzy barrettes and a new meme. How much better could life be?

You are one sweet, kind, and interesting lady! Thanks for including me :) I'll have to get my thoughts in order soon.

Have a wonderful day!

Love the little yo-yo barettes! I saw some somewhere in my blog hopping....maybe they were Kate's? that were attached to hair ties. I make yo-yo's a lot and I showed them to Aften. She will not let us really do anything with her hair. She loves hair things but won't wear them! LOL But I thought maybe if I made her something special? We'll see!

Have a great day :)

Tammy said...

Hi Tammy,
I really enjoyed reading what you do for yourself and others!
Your daughter looks adorable in those new barrettes! You've almost sold me, since you know I have two girls myself! :)

Thank you for your sweet comments the other day!

We're off now to an end of the year home school picnic (which got postponed two weeks ago due to rain!).
Have a super day!

Hi Tammy, that was a great and interesting meme. Now you say I'm good for giving my husband breakfast in bed on Saturday and Sunday. I don't have to iron his clothes and I admire you for doing that every night. He actually takes his clothes to the cleaners, something he was doing before we got married and I guess he likes it better. He doesn't want me to fix him breakfast through the week so I do it on the weekend. I hope you're having a great day. Deb
