The Pampered Chef and Baby Birds

I just started selling with The Pampered Chef, so I have been busy trying to get some cooking shows booked and learning everything I can about it. I am going to school for a degree with a double major in Marketing and Human Resource Management with a minor in Business Administration. A lot of jobs that require this type of degree want you to have some experience in Sales, so I figured selling with the Pampered Chef would be some really great experience. I just had a cooking show on Saturday with my best friends, Lonnie and Bliss. I had a really good time and hope everyone did too. You know, I honestly could not ask for better friends. They are always so supportive of me in whatever I do. Bliss has been telling people that I am doing it and trying to get some shows booked for me. She is so awesome. And Lonnie allowed me to do the cooking show at her house. They are both so fantastic. :)


In other news, there are birds living in my attic and they are driving me completely insane. They have a dance party with all their little bird friends everyday at 3am, so it's totally awesome for me when I am trying to sleep. I swear it sounds like someone is banging on my ceiling. Man, I totally love it so much. I am scared to go up there and "shoo" them out because I can hear that there are baby birds in there as well, and if you have ever dealt with baby birds, momma birds do not like it when you get anywhere near their babies. One time, I saw a cat kill a baby bird and it got attacked by a swarm of birds. So, as you can imagine, I am a little reluctant to just head up in the attic and get my eyeballs poked out. But, I mean, if you totally want to come to my house and do it for me, I will be more than happy to let you!

I've Been Tagged.

I was tagged by SumpN'Sassy.

The rules are to list 8 things about yourself, so here goes:

1. I only have 1 lung. The other was taken out when I was three weeks old due to cysts that had formed. The cysts had grown so far into my lung; the doctors couldn't just remove the cysts. They had to extract the lung in its entirety.
2. I have never been out of the country, although I been to almost every state in the US. However, I am hoping to go out of the country very soon.
3. I prefer documentaries over any other type of film.
4. I can get obsessive with video games. Especially the really good video games (i.e. Final Fantasy, God of War, etc) I find myself playing for hours upon hours and then realize my entire day has gone. Sometimes, I just can't put down the controller.
5. I am a HUGE animal lover. I pretty much want to own every animal in existence. Even the ugly ones. You can ask Bliss & Lonnie about that one. I think Lonnie honestly believes that I have a real problem and need to seek help.
6. It bothers me when I see a grammar or spelling mistake. Especially when the person should know better.
7. I rarely ever get sick. Even being around someone who is coughing and sneezing on me, I usually still don't contract their sickness. (Now watch, as soon as I say this, I am going to come down with some bubonic plague)
8. My friends know way more about me than anyone in my family does. And you know, that's really sad if you think about it.
