Another Day

Today has been great. I get the next two weeks off and I am excited. I really enjoy my job but I need to get my house in order, literally! I need to paint and clean closests and do some deep cleaning. I am looking forward to getting this task started and finished. Is it just me or do you feel better about everything when your house is clean?

Earlier this week I had my husband pose for a picture with me. We are two big goofballs. I want to enter some challenges in the near future and I wanted to take a few fun photos. These are my favorite goofball pics. We are good together. He helps me to be better.

My Sweet Angel

Y'all my sweet little girl has finished the second grade and she has to be one of the sweetest little girls in the world. Her second grade class was tasked with writing the graduating Seniors some words of wisdom. This is what she had to say:


I know Seniors leave their parents. But you can do it. All of you can do it. Don't be tempted. Don't be nervous. Never be nervous. Congratulations! Always have courage no matter what. College is wonderful. Always make good choices.

Your parents can't make you do your own homework. You have to do it by yourself. Don't be mean to others. Be nice to your teacher. Don't fight nobody. Never hate somebody you don't like. Love people, they want to be loved.

I love this kid. She makes me so proud. Have a great day and thanks for reading.

Where in the World...

have I been? Nowhere. Just straight LAZY. No excuse. I have not scrapped a thing since Feb/March.

Lots going on and here's the skinny:
1. Finished our first round of P90X. It rocked.
2. Still working and enjoying that. I work with some wonderful women.
3. Had my B-day and that was over too fast.
4. Hubby gave me cash for my B-day and I spent it quick.
5. My teenager is still dramatic and working my last.
6. Son is in football and band and that has me running.
7. Oldest trying out for Volleyball and she is in night school due to moving from FL.
8. Getting ready for a Caribbean cruise.
9. I signed up to run my first 1/2 marathon...I think I must be crazy.
10. Started our second round of P90X.

That is life in a nutshell.

Daddy/Daughter Dance

Here is a pic of my husband and daughter before they left for the Daddy/Daughter Dance. Our church hosts this dance every year around Valentine's Day. There is also a Mother/Son event but it will be later this month.The Daddy/Daughter dance has dinner and dancing. They have crafts and games. But the sweetest part was that they were able to write each other love letters. She wrote her dad:

Dear Daddy,

I'll love you forever, even when I get a woupen (whooping) very baddly. And cry so maddly.

I love you because you care about me and treat me like a human bean. And teach me! So well I love you sooooooooooooooooooooooo much. You are my very and only dad.

Love Always,

I love you! Happy Valentines Day! Daddy!

They are so sweet at this age. I wish I could just keep her this innocent and sweet for a long time.

How we do it in Alabama

Okay. It has snowed in Alabama for the second time this year. I am not a real fan of snow or cold weather but it nice for my children to experience the snow. I know it is only 2 inches worth, but that is a big deal to us.We actually got to play in the snow. They had a ball throwing snowballs. Okay, please make sure you check out the down south mittens my children are wearing. That would be socks on their hands and my son has on garden gloves. Yep. We don't buy gloves very often.You have to see my favorite picture though. Seeing as how we don't get much snow, my babies still wanted to make a snowman. Here it is.....The Bootleg Snowman.I gotta teach these babies how to build a snowman. They did the best they could in 2 inches of snow. See his hair and button eyes. He has a baby carrot nose, stick arms, and I was way to scared to ask what his mouth was made of. Gotta love it.

Have a good Sunday and thanks for reading.

My Grandma

My sweet grandmother passed away a week ago today. She was a very sweet lady. She was funny and caring. She was a wonderful grandmother and because of her I am here. I am going to miss her. She was a beautiful lady that was tough as nails. She loved her family so much and we all knew that. I am so grateful for her. We have so much to be thankful for in having her.
Things I love about her are the memories. She used to keep me when my parents were at work. I remember throwing a tantrum at about age 3 or 4. I threw a whopper of a tantrum. I was laying face down on the floor kicking my legs and pounding my fists (I saw Wiley Coyote do that). My grandma was on the phone and kept stepping right over me like she didn't see me. After a few minutes I just got up on my own and I never did that again. She was the kind of lady that made you pick out your own switch, she could make you a meal out of anything, and could squint her eye in just the right way to let you know you were in big trouble. She was generous and giving to her family.

I love her so much. She was so beautiful in every way.

Photo Organizer

Was I the only one who didn't know about Picaso. I have Photoshop Elements 4 and I am totally okay with that. I realize that there is now Photoshop 8, but I found out about Picaso. I realize that it is quite limited but it is FREE. You can organize and edit, and it's FREE. Picaso 3 is user friendly's FREE. So, I downloaded it to my new computer and I am enjoying how easy it is. I like how the program organizes the photos and how quick you can edit and enhance the pics. It has all kinds of cool features. So if you don't have Picaso 3 you should look it up and read the reviews.

Here is something I did, just playin' around with it. Please note that I am an amateur and this is most definitely a regular people app.

Original Picture (Yes, I know the makeup is too light, I was playing with the wrong bronzer...yikes!)

Same picture, cropped to get a close up of the eyeshadow. I was experimenting with color.

Third picture, tried to mute the color a bit.
That's all for today people. Have a goodin'!
