My cousins and I are having a White Elephant gift exchange over the Christmas Holidays. We did it last year, and it was hysterical. Someone walked away with an old retainer, another person used tennis shoes. . . This year, however, you are only allowed to bring gifts that you purchased from infomercials. It is pretty much guaranteed to be another great success. However, I still need to get my "prize!" Has anyone seen any great "as seen on TV" gag gifts lately? Ideas and suggestions greatly encouraged!!

Apparently, I have food on the brain this Tuesday... but this is something that I just had to share. You need to go out right now and buy this sweet Thai Chili sauce. It is the best. I am very picky about a good Thai Chili sauce and this one beats everyone I have ever tasted (store bought). It is the perfect blend of sweet and heat, with balanced flavors of the ginger, chiles, and red peppers. I serve it with so many dishes!
The one I love is made by The Ginger People and is their "sweet ginger chili sauce." I haven't looked yet at Publix or any "regular" grocery story, but I've found the sauces at Earthfare and Whole Foods... Be careful though and stock up, because several times when I've gone to get it, I have actually grabbed the last one on the shelf! I hope you love it as much as I do!

I'm still playing with my blog background. I want something simple.... that does not distract from the blog itself. The other ones I thought were a little busy, so I'm enjoying this one for a nice change! However,does anyone know how to make the blog title center in the middle of the blog header? I can't figure that out on here... Help a sista out!
Lash and I are about to feast on breakfast for dinner-- YUM! I'll try to do another post later tonight but it might have to wait until tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well!

Thanks so much for everyone's prayers and support over the last week! It was a rigorous week of studying, but thankfully, it is over, and I successfully passed the state exam!
I can definitely see why "adults" struggle with going back to school after they have been out of school for several years. It took me 3 days to get in the class routine and turn my brain/ studying mode on... and I haven't been out of school but 6 months!
Needless to say, right now I am completely content with my 9-5 routine any day. I LOVE knocking off in the evening and having no obligations (or studying to do!!) until the next morning. But I learned a lot last week and am so thankful for the opportunity that I had. I would definitely recommend the Brewer School of Insurance to anyone that is interested... My nerdy self really enjoyed it! Now, I just can't wait to get a deeper understanding how PURE with all the knowledge I gained from the class!

I'm back in school for the week getting my insurance license! I'm really excited that PURE has given me the opportunity to become a SC Property and Casualty producer... but please pray for me this week! Especially for some strength, knowledge, and peace of mind! I'm in class this week from 8-5:30, and then I've got a 2 1/2 hour exam to pass!
