ok, I am going to add to this rather than just post the schedule. Why do a vendor party?
A better question is why not? They are all the rage for sure. Whether you pay for a slot or not, make sure you mix it up. Saving money is definitely a MUST in this economy, but people do want to see business owners INVEST in their business. With Caroles Party Central, you don't have to break the bank. AND we are more affordable then doing an outside festival or fair. There are plenty of sites that you can party at, just don't forget us, we've been doing parties for almost 3 yrs!
Party with us on Fridays. We are planning to bring back the bingo vault with delicious prizes from some of your favorite vendors. Always remember to stay positive. I know getting sales in this economy is everyones primary concern, but being a nay sayer is not good for your mental health, business health or overall health. People believe what they read, and is sometimes not all that easy to interpret on the internet. You (the vendor) may be a very positive person, but if you're always negative about ds or vendor parties, that is what will be read, not your true personality. Being positive is cliche, but also a must when on the internet, and party hopping.

Take care and I hope to see you on August 28th, at Caroles Party Central!


Update on my commitment

It's not that I'm not committed. Everything I do, I try to give 110%! I did join the gym, but this and the last week I've had trouble getting to it. I am going tonight however! I am committed. I gained instead of could that happen? Ah well...there is orlando, and plenty of walking...I'm sure to loose at least one pound there. Thanks to all my followers for your support and kind words and please do come back here for support. Together we can support each other. I know most of us have businesses at home too....please feel free to ask me if you can guest blog on here too. I may have a feature where we vent or give each other advice, support or whatever! I will tell you how my exercise regime went this weekend! I joined Cardinal Fitness, and I believe it will be well worth the investment, as well as working out on my own treadmill. Keep the comments coming!

Start with....commitment Sunday!

Today is Commitment Sunday! I am committed to getting back into shape. Yes, I've said it before, but I've looked at recent photos of myself, and really am not happy. I want to loose 10 lbs at least. I'm realistic. I want to loose more actually, but I will start with 10. I will be honest with myself. With my new job, I've been doing alot of eating on the run. Stuff I've avoided doing for the past 1 1/2 yrs. I fell off the wagon, shame on me! Luckily my diabetes has been stable. My goal when I was diagnosed was to be off the meds by this time. I am somewhat disappointed, but realize I am only human, have flaws, and not infallible. I will set new goals, with the first a 10 lb weight loss by October. (or at least 1/2 that) I'm off now....Will go do the treadmill after cold case tonight. If you'd like to join my commitment sunday, leave a comment in the comment section. What will you commit yourself into doing?

Thanks for reading.




I know today was Abbys' day. She made her first communion, and in a few weeks we are on vacation to Disney. But I honestly can't wait for next year. I'm very excited about our potential trip to NYC next year. Yes, I was scoffed at, but I looked things up. I'm sure we will have plenty for everyones liking to do. Why NYC? I am very anxious to go to the BLOGHER2010 conference. I want to see what its' all about. I'm excited about everything. Disneyworld I've been to, NYC I haven't. I think it will be good for the girls too! I'm going to keep planning and saving.....I'll let you know more soon!

Thanks for reading.

Caroles Rant of the week!

New feature starting today! My rant of the week. It goes something like this...It is either about a hot topic on tv, or about a celebrity, (his her views, or quiet anything) or wahm thing. Here's my rant for today. BRAD PITT!

We all love him, or at least most of us do...whether you think he's charming, great looking, or is a great humanitarian. The man knows how to get attention. One thing that gets my goat however is this. Brad Pitt would like for us (you and I) to not tell him how to live, not to judge, or do anything of that sort. That's fine Mr. Pitt....but I believe you do the same as we do. You have an abundance of dislike for the religious, or so it seems. He has said, he is 20% atheist, and 80% agnostic. In some of the print I have read, he clearly does not like religious people and seems quite judgemental in his words. (my opinion) And while he states in the media he doesn't like to be told how to live, he continues to preach about prop 8 and the like.

Don't misunderstand. I am a big Brad Pitt fan, and don't have anything against prop 8. However, if someone doesn't like to be judged, and told how to live, then why are you telling us what we should vote for? AND why are you telling us HOW people should be allowed to live?

While I agree with some of Mr. Pitts' politics, I can't say I agree with his double edged sword.

If I tell you: "don't tell me or anyone else how to live" sure, I won't be telling anyone else how to live, vote or anything of the like. Just my rant.

Thanks for reading...Peace!
