Why Do I Even Bother

Me and my son had a great morning
got up - great
had breakfast - great
got dressed - great
went to Lowes, out to lunch and then to the money stealer (i.e. Grocery Store) – great
Get home and it’s time to put groceries away --------Not So Great
I come in the house to him sprawled out on the kitchen floor because he is soooooooo tired and did not feel well after putting away 3 bags of groceries….
Wow really it’s not like I don’t have to put away groceries at least twice a week by myself….
Anywho I did not feel like dealing with the drama of it all so I told him to move out of the floor and go lay down so I could at least maneuver around the kitchen.
I am on my last bag of groceries and his friend comes over and wants to play and of course I tell him he can’t because he is laying down…I mean he was soo tired and all.
Guess who was not tired anymore.
I will give you three guesses, but I am sure you will only need one.
And he thought it would be cute to say well you said I need to get more exercise…Ummm seriously your gonna throw that in my face right now.
Not only did he play me, but he was also sassing at me too. I was already a tad bit ticked off that I had just put all the groceries away by myself. 
I mean hello I was tired too.
Well since he was so wide awake and needed to burn some calories I sent him to his room to clean it.
*****Insert Evil Laugh*****

I guess next time he feels he has the right to do whatever he wants
He will think twice.

Here is to a man who was not afraid to show his inner child.

He wasn’t afraid to play Barbies with me and my sisterUncle Mike Playing Barbies

And he loved him some Disney World



The grocery store was also a favorite of his. When I was little and they would come down for a visit he always wanted to go to the grocery store and we would buy all the junk food we could handle.

We will miss you Uncle Mike.

I am super excited.  Although I am sick as a dog today I had a wonderful Christmas.   
Drum Roll Please.....

Yep my hubby loves me, I can now blog from the couch.....

Oh yeah.

My parents also did a uber great job in the gift department

Who needs a Starbucks when you have this

I am going to be one wired blogger....from my couch of course.

My hubs may soon regret getting me this gift.


Soo in the new year I am hoping to blog my heart away.

  It seems I have lost some of my bloggy friends by being a major slacker. 

So no more of that my friends.

 I also got me a new phone so now I can blog on the go.....

Watch out world.

Holiday Baking Stress

I'm Losing My Mind...

I need this T-shirt

I have been trying to make butterscotch bars for over a week now and every time I go to the store to get the one item I am missing I get home and realize I have used another item I needed in some other recipe.


I think I am going to resort to a Betty Crocker cookie mix and forgo the butterscotch squares all together

I did find this poem while looking for pics and it is pretty funny.


**T-shirt can be found at**

Happy Freeze Your Tail Off Day

If you live in on the west coast you are feeling my pain. Although we don't have snow and are still in the double digits in my neck of the woods it has been pretty frigid here in the south. The wind has made today not only extremely cold but semi-miserable.

Look at my poor Natvity

Poor Joseph and the wise men keep trying to blow away. My friend said earlier she hopes I don't find baby Jesus up in a tree tomorrow.

Ya'll stay warm tonight.

Broken Wing

My poor little Bub fractured his arm Sunday evening.  The ER visit was quick but painful for both him and us.  I hate to see anyone in pain and when it is my baby it is even worse.  

He is resting  a lot and his Ipod touch has come in very handy.

Necklaces For Adoption

A friend of my family is selling these necklaces to raise money to adopt a sibling group from Africa. The cost is $20.00. If you go to her website you can purchase them ☺.

The necklaces came from Uganda and they are made by women in a community to raise money for an orphanage. Part of the proceeds went to the women of Uganda the other portion goes toward the adoption.  If you want more information please visit her website. There are many different styles.

Happy Anniversary

Today is me and my Husband’s 12th anniversary Party.

My sister watched my son for us while we went out to lunch and did some shopping.

Happy Anniversary to me

Reebok SimplyTone High-Performance Toning Shoes

this may not seem like the ideal anniversary present, but my back and neck have been acting up a lot so I needed some good shoes and heard the simply tones were the way to go.  Plus they are the pink version for breast cancer awareness month so a portion of the proceeds goes towards the foundation.  I am also going for a lovely massage this Friday so I am super excited.

And Happy Anniversary to hubs

He has been wanting one for the fryer.

Tonight on the menu is yummy grilled shrimp and scallops. 

I hope all of my blog friends are having a great weekend.

Would you like fries with that

My friend Autumn has been posting these on Facebook

I watched a couple of the movies today on Netflix and I am completely grossed out.
Guess my new diet will consist of whatever is at the Farmer’s Market or the Organic section at the market. Winking

Sending a Balloon To Heaven

Never Be Forgotten

A Birthday In Heaven
© 2005 Written by Kris Smith
I heard you crying yesterday
And felt your heart-sent love
So I’m sending you this message
Now, from Heaven up above. 
You’re wondering if I’ll celebrate 

My birthday (way up here)
I know you’re missing me today
I feel your essence near.
God planned a special day for me
He told me with a wink
He’d ordered me a special cake
(It’s Angel food, I think)
I’m getting lots of hugs from God
He’s really good at that
And every time that I walk by
He gives my head a pat
Balloons will fill the streets for me
They float up through the clouds
And we have lots of clowns up here
That make us laugh out loud 
There is a birthday carousel
Jeweled horses ride the wind
With music playing oh so sweet…
The magic never ends 
I’ve made so many friends, you see
We laugh and play and sing
We ride our bikes and play jump rope
And sleep in Angel’s wings 
We’ll have our cake and ice cream
And open gifts, surprise!
But we don’t blow out our candles here
Instead, they light the skies

Thanks for sharing this Sue
