25 pounds down! 42 to go!

I got my 25 pound award today with WeightWatchers. It has taken me awhile to get it but I am proud of myself! I think it helped a lot that Exie and I exercised for a few hours yesterday and we ate really healthy all day! Yay!

Also, I made a website for my facepainting. Check it out and let me know if you think I should change anything:

Who is interested in a coupon club? Theresa DeLeon at our church plans to start one up (and keep it up unlike the one I tried to start lol).

Does anyone want to facepaint on Saturday May 2nd? You will get a $25 gift card to a local restaurant and I will train you. It would be from 10-1PM. They will be: cooking BBQ, having a bike show, a bike wash-off (Hooters ~vs~ Tie Breakers), and a motorcycle stunt show (done by the professionals; StarBoyz). I will not be able to make it but I will help yall in any way I can. I need 2 painters. The lady said that "We hold this event to benefit the Ronald McDonald House every year." Let me know if you're interested. It would be best to email me at

Time for homework!!

Quick Update

So Jordan and I may begin managing a coffee shop on the weekends to boost business. You've probably heard of Notes in Washington (its only like 30 minutes away)... Jordan plays there occasionally and we think that we could really help them out. We'd need the help of friends though. We need some art to put up in there... we could put prices on them and customers could buy them. Here are my other ideas. Tell me things that would really draw you into a coffee shop or things that you think would not work so well.

Create menu board - expensive drinks high lighted
Frequent customer cards
Menus (laminate and leave in store - no take out menus)
Bulletin board for ads & cards
Wireless (eventually)
Music in the Streets (every 3rd sunday)
Karaoke Nights
Open Mic Night (once a month)- $10 for entering artists, 3 judges, $3 cover charge - get tickets that give them $.50 off of a drink, winner gets a portion of the pot
Halo tournaments- also charge $10 to enter and winner gets a portion of the pot
More seating (inside & outside) account for a calendar - make a mailing list for customers
website w/ photo album & calendar
have games on book shelf
-card games
-board games
cards with trivia questions (laminated) on each table
advertise to local churches and have them book events
