It’s 10:10 pm and Joe will not even go to bed. He is in Garage Sale mode. He and Gabe have a plan they are gonna make 30 bucks to buy a new gameboy game….little does he know: 1. His gameboy is gonna disappear real soon (just mysteriously lost). He plays way too much. 2. He is gonna have a pretty hard time selling 10 pokemon cards for 5 bucks. He is sitting over on David’s computer typing his list of everything he’s going to sell. Every 20 seconds, it’s “how do you spell… how do you spell…” Wow, he really needs to go to bed.

I must admit Sam and I have made some of the cutest dresses for 435. Pure cuteness all around. So back to the garage sale. We are having our neighborhood G-Sale this weekend and I am on a mission to find a few cute furniture pieces for our “Glamour Shots” on Friday evening during 435.  I’m super excited about this…Today, our interns Kiara and Desiree cut some tablecloths for all the tables…it’s gonna look awesome. And oh, to those of you who came last year..guess what? You know how it ended up outside?  Well, this year we moved it in the lawn next to 435. Nothing is better than a huge white tent. You feel like you are getting married all over again.

So guess where Joe, David and I are going? So dang excited, I have never been here and Lynette has been bugging me like crazy to go. She loves Paris and I think so will I!!! We are leaving the day after 435!

Kayla is working on the slide show of all the Cover Girl entrants. So you can see all the gorgeous girls yourself and see how tough it was to decide.

You know I have been thinking. Yes, I do this once in a while. I think I should have Kayla and Sam blog a bit on here too. I always feel so guilty not blogging everyday, and they would be a huge help plus they are pretty cool. Just thinking, so if you see a post that sounds a bit odd…it is certainly not me!

My daughter calls it garage saling…My sub is having a sale this weekend and we have spent the last 2 days preparing (well I prepared and she played with all her old toys). Today when we were picking up price stickers she picked out at least 30 things that she wants to buy with her earnings!!! How exciting about Paris! We are leaving for Cabo on the Monday after 435-can not wait for a little vacation. So anxious to see what you girls have been working on-no doubt that everything will be amazing!!!

SOOOO…Long story short my hubby is in Japan. First time we have ever really been away from each other for more than a few days. We miss each other terribly and so he has told me he is treating me on a trip to 435. Honestly, i never planned to go this year since i knew we wouldnt win the contests. Anyhoo….435 or Bust again from Oklahoma….Too poor to shop much, buy cant wait to just be there! Cant wait to see y’all (although i did miss my country music horribly while i was there)

J.Diddy - June 7, 2010 - 8:46 pm

Garage sales are so much fun – selling things off or rummaging thru other peoples things – it can be so cool! PARIS! you will love it and Im sure you will find awesome things you will need to have shipped back home because they are too big to fit in your luggage LOL We are going next spring for our 10 year anniversary – I went 10 years ago this March and have been dying to go back – you will LOVE it

boys4girls2 - June 8, 2010 - 10:46 am

We only have to RSVP if we are coming to a party, right? I plan to come to the sale, but not the parties : (

jenn obrien - June 8, 2010 - 12:10 pm

ugh I am so sad I can’t make it to 435..Art Fair..new dresses..awhhh I can’t wait to hear all about the fun party~!

Denise - June 8, 2010 - 2:40 pm

Sarah-
yup, we just need RSVP’s for the parties…

April W. - June 8, 2010 - 2:41 pm

I have been dealing with boys not wanting to go to bed until 10 pm as well. Oh the joy!
Actually, I think it’s pretty cute that the boys are working so hard to make a buck (or 5)to get a new game. Made me giggle.
All my boys had to do was sit in the dentist chair today for a cleaning,no wiggles, no fussing, no freaking out and they got a new DS game. Bribes are a great thing! lol

PS Im so bummed that I can’t have a show and buy some of those cute Jane Exclusives! We are road trippin’ to Southern California (home).

Janella - June 8, 2010 - 5:12 pm

Denise, I had to laugh about the 10 Pokemon cards for $5. My 7 year old son Connor would definately be wheeling and dealing with him. He begs me to take his Pokemon cards to school everday and does many trades, from what I hear that’s a pretty good deal!! LOL! You must admit though their creativity in making money makes you smile! It sounds like he’s a little bit like his mommy a bit of a risk taker, I am sure in the end it will pay off. Have fun at your garage sale, man how I LOVE them!!

Tracy - June 8, 2010 - 5:41 pm

Shut the front door! YOU are throwing a ginormous party for US at your HOUSE no less and then jumping on a jet to Paris?!?! That is just crazy cakes, but I still wanna be you when I grow up… :)

Monika - June 8, 2010 - 9:23 pm

Paris is pretty dang cool! Erina wants to go this summer, it’s about a 6 hour drive from my hometown in Switzerland. She thinks Paris is full of pretty ladies with puffy poodles, lol! You’re probably already back in the States by the time we get there though… we’re flying out on 7/7 =).

~love - June 10, 2010 - 6:56 pm

chloe is sitting beside me writing her “list” for the next time we go to the store. i’m getting a lot of “how do you spell….” right now. =)

i can’t wait to take the family to paris someday…..so much fun!!

can’t wait for 435!
