New Mary Kay Unit, Mice, and Marley & Me

On Wednesday, Christy Cox became the newest Mary Kay Sales Director in NWA! She recruited me last year and it became official on the 31st of December! I am so happy to be in her unit now! Congratulations, Christy!

On a major different note, when Russell and I got back home from Christmas last week, we noticed a little changes at home. We had our gingerbread house still out and some of the candy had been moved....hmmm...believe it or not, we didn't think much of it. Then, I started to hear funny noises every now and then. Well, on Wednesday morning, I took Belle outside, fed her and sat down in the living room. Not even 5 minutes later, I saw something run across our counter in the kitchen...I looked a little closer and ya'll it was a MOUSE! I am such a girly girl! I don't like anything gross or yucky AT ALL! I freaked out more than one should. I RAN to our bedroom and closed the door.I was even too scared to try to put a towel under the door! I called Russell and ya'll I was so freaked out! He tried to calm me down. I called a few of my friends and I called my mother in law because they have had mice before. Anyway, as I was talking to Jackie, I saw little "Mickey" run under the door in our room! EWWW! So I was even too scared to take a bath in our bathtub! I got ready at the other end of the house and got Belle as quick as I could and left! I was THAT SCARED! Ya'll laugh at me if you must!

Well at least it wasn't Remy from Ratatouille! I do love the cartoon Mickey Mouse and Remy but NOT in real life!
So to end the story, Russell and I went to Amy and Tony's house to celebrate the New Year and Russell set traps all around the house before we went there. Well, I was still petrified and when we got home, I stayed in the truck while Russell looked for the yucky things. Well we got lucky. We trapped not one mouse, but TWO mice! Whew, I was so relieved. Our house is only supposed to have me, Russell, and Belle in it.....not any other creatures!
Russell and I finally saw Marley & Me last night. It was absolutely precious and I want to own it! Cause Russell and I are definitely movie buffs! Anyway, the movie is just the sweetest and I cried and cried at the end! I haven't cried like that at a movie in a long time! It makes me wanna hug Belle more and more! We just love our little "Bellie" as we sometimes call her! So if you haven't seen the movie, go see it! It is really great!

Jeniffer Aniston seems to be getting better at giving Brad Pitt a run for his money...

Oh my word, I would have freaked out too!! I want to see Marley and Me, but I know I'll just bawl through the whole thing...maybe I should wait until I can rent it!

Happy New Year Meredith!!

Mice and Snakes...just can't handle them. Is there a lot of new construction around you? Maybe he got moved out of his home and found yours instead!
