Betty Rocker

There have been eight paintings commissioned to date. But did you know Betty Crocker wasn’t a real person? Well, at least not one person. Instead, she was a composite of several of the company’s Home Service Department members meant to represent a motherly image. Over the years portraits have been commissioned to update her look with the times.

Bakerella made a quiz out of the portraits. So, let’s see how good you guys are at guessing.

Above are eight Betty Crocker portraits. Place them in the correct order from oldest to newest. You can go on Bakerella's website to answer the questions. The winner will win the new iPod nano … in rocking red of course. Betty likes red.

5 Questions Friday

I was so busy this weekend....I didn't get a chance to do the 5 Questions Friday.

1. What is your favorite "eat" on Thanksgiving?

I love me some mash potatoes and brown turkey gravy. I am not talking about the instant powered want the ones with the occasional lumps of potato. I drowned my potatoes, turkey and stuffing in gravy.
I also heart my grandmother's banana cream pie. I am very stingy when it comes to this pie. I HATE sharing it! I want the WHOLE pie for myself. I do and have thrown a monster, 3 year old type of fit when someone comes in-between my pie and me.

Thanksgiving is all about sharing....except when it comes to my pies!

2. What is the name your best girl friend and the best trait about her or how you met (or heck, both!!)

Cathie. She is such a giving person and puts everyone ahead of herself. She is also extremely intelligent and very driven. I met her in college.

3. What would you say is one of your "weirdest" quirks?

I smell everything. Seriously everything well, except poop. No go smell for me.

4. What is your favorite genre of music? (Hip hop? Classical? Rock? etc.)

Alternative, rock, soft-rock.

5. Are you a Night Owl...or an Early Bird?

Use to be a night owl. Now that I am old and have to wake up before the sun is up....I am becoming an early bird. Getting old sucks!

Walk to Save Animals

Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA ( is my favorite charity for animals. They do so much work for homeless animals and abused or injured animals. This event is for the whole family, 2-legged and 4-legged. They will have several vendors out there. Lots of activities for kids and pets as well as shows. Ryan and I volunteered last year. This year we are going to do a little of both, walk and volunteer. I want TiVO to get photos with Santa.

Hope you all can make it and support AAWL / SPCA!! biggrinbiggrin
