SPT Challenge March 10



As per Lelly's Musings, the SPT Challenge for the entire month of March is to "take self-portraits including the number eight."

Since I still haven't lost those eight pounds, this will have to do instead .....

Remember I mentioned PTO Skate Night last week, and how I'm the person in charge, and this month I forgot to take the cash box with the change for the concession stand, the deposit slip, and the list of students? Well the good news is at least I remembered the actual CONCESSIONS ..... pizza, candy, soda, and bottled water. And remembered to ice down the drinks before hand like I do every month, buying fifty cent bags of ice, and happening to notice the weight of the bags, from the local convenience store down the road ... (the same convenience store I used to walk, or ride my bike to, as a child, whenever my mom would give me a quarter for candy and that twenty five cents would let you buy twelve bite-size squares of mini-laffy-taffys which was awesome but not the banana-flavored ones because they were disgusting .......... but I digress ...........)

So here we go ........ EIGHT POUND bags of ice for Skate Night!

Banana Laffy Taffy is the only kind I like! Please forward any and all to me!

Ditto to Ann!!! I LOVE most Taffy, but Banana is my favorite. One treat from my childhood that I really miss is Rock-N-Rolls, which are gingerbread cookies with pink frosting on top. We didn't have much money growing up and when my mom brought these home, it was just awesome for me and my four siblings. Unfortunately, my girl has absolutely no concept of appreciating such things.

That is a really good pic of you...you're so beautiful! And, I agree, the banana laffy taffy is disgusting.

Oh, yellow Laffy Taffy...my favorite! I'll take any that come your way!

Oh (again), great picture of you!

Sandie said...

We could have been such good friends as kids... you could have given me all the banana laffy taffy, since it was the only kind I liked!

You don't have any wrinkles. We can longer be friends.

Date Girl said...

Look at the way you hold those 8 pounds too, I'm such a wimp, I would have been sweating ;-)

Chris said...

I have started noticing 8's more. That is funny about the ice. Way to go!

Katie said...

Banana Laffy Taffy is the only reason to eat Laffy Taffy.

Mom2Toribug said...

Seriously? THAT is what you came up with for the number 8? No, just kidding. That was perfect! I still think you should do some of the other suggestions though. Have a great week.

Dacia said...

How fun that you're on the PTO. Me too! Cute picture!

Alisa said...

You found one!
Laffy taffy- I agree no banana here either. Cute photo-

Oh I can remember walking to the sev
and buying purple gum, icee's and whatever else we could within our spare change budget. We would keep going back up to the counter piece by piece until we had reached our limit.
Good times, good times.

Monica H said...

FINALLY someone agrees with me. I've alwys thought those banana laffy taffy squares were/ARE disgusting! Everythime I've said that, people always looked at me like I was crazy.

My favorite were the sour cream cheery ones :-)

You're getting clever with your posts! Look forward to next week.
