Three days with Mary Kay

I just got back yesterday after being in Dallas since Sunday. I went to my first Mary Kay Seminar, and I had a blast! I've never seen so many women in one place! It was like I stepped into a Lifetime movie. A few women brought their spouses, but men were a rare sight indeed. I didn't get to stay in the same hotel as my area, so I was in a room all by myself. But what a room it was!

This place was crazy! It was like the Oscars and Miss America rolled into one.

It was so awesome to watch my new Sales Director Jessica walk across stage with my former Sales Director Holly!

I had a blast with my MK girls!

Cows are ...not in my chili!

Ooooh honey, I made some awesome vegan chili tonight. I was in kind of a cooking mood for some reason. This is not the norm for me recently. I've had no urge to cook, but since going out to eat pretty much sucks for me, well...a girl's gotta eat! So anyhoo, I made this really kick butt black bean chili. At least I think it's kick butt, you may not. Even my meat-loving husband liked it, although he did mention the sacrilege of not putting meat in chili. Can you see me rolling my eyes?

Pictures are going to have to come later. The camera seems to be in hubby's truck. I don't know why he takes the camera everywhere he goes. I've found lots of stupid pictures on the camera of things like music stands, recording equipment from school, speakers, a piece of floor in the bandhall...I don't know why, I just have this violent urge to delete them all! Where did this tangent come from?...

Back to the chili. I totally made up the recipe. I had some black beans, some vegetable broth, and some tomato sauce, it just seemed like a good idea. There was of course some other stuff in it too, but I'll tell you when I post pics.

I'm also in the process of making some no-cream ice cream. I got this recipe out of my Vegetarian Times magazine. It's peanut butter ice cream, but I'll have to let you know how it is's not ready. I'll make sure to take pictures of that cream.

Cheating on my Toyota?

I had to put my Corolla in the shop the other day for repairs due to an accident like 6 weeks ago. Ya, it's finally getting done...I figured it was time. I had a good time talking to the insurance guy for the old biddies who hit me. He was telling me how very elderly and confused she sounded...and she was just lying to him. I set him straight though. I just laughed out loud when he said the elderly part. They were only in their 50's, but I thought they were elderly too when I saw them decked out in their moomoos and house slippers. "Must of had a rough life", the insurance guy tells me. He was a hoot!

Anyhoo, I digress...

I get to have a rental car while mine is being put back together. They didn't have a compact car available, so I got the next best. It ended up being a Nissan Altima. This is the coolest car ever! There's no key. There's a sensor in the lock/unlock gadgetty thingy. As long as it's in the car, you just push a button to turn it on. It's amazing! Don't laugh at me, I drive a base model Corolla. I was lucky to get a CD player. I love my car-car, but I think I might get drivers envy when I have to turn this rental in.

It's freakin hot!

It is so hot in my house right now, we took small trips in the car just to get cool. I really don't know how anyone lived without AC. I'm sweaty, my hair looks terrible, I'm grumpy, and I'm wearing almost nothing. This is not a pretty picture. I even took a cold bubble bath last felt wonderful. I thought maybe our house was just crappily insulated, but I don't remember it being this hot in the past. We finally figured out there's something wrong with our air unit. They're suppose to call us back in the morning. In the mean time, we sweat. Texas in the summer sucks.

I'm not shy, I just don't want to say anything dumb

There's just nothing like going to a cookout where you only know about 2 people. Expecially when you're a social retard like me. Hubby has the fortunate nature to be able to talk to anyone, anywhere, wheather he knows them or not. I on the other hand have the unfortunate disposition of having nothing to say to anyone, known or not known. I like to call myself more of an observer, a people watcher. I've heard some might mistake that as pride and conceit. Whatever...I just have nothing to say.

So don't think I don't like you because I don't talk to you. I just haven't mastered the art of conversation yet.
