Happy Holidays

Send your own ElfYourself eCards

Bad, bad, blogger

I know it has been a while since I have blogged. I have an excused, but who likes excuses and it was lame anyway. I will start with Halloween; this year was our 3rd annual party and was just as much fun as the first two. Good food and great family and friends. Eli was a cowboy, so ofcourse some of us had to be Indians. Nikki was Pocahontas, Josh as a cowboy, Mammie and Pawpaw as a cowboy and cowgirl and I went as Chunkahontas and Burt as Running Bull or some other Native American name (feel free to insert your own name).

The warmest spot in the yard is up by the chimenea.

See you next year!!!

Our Cruise

We are back from our cruise. We had a fabulous time and will be going on another cruise as soon as possible.Everything was so easy and fun. Most of you have heard about it more than one time already, so I decided just to do the slide show. I will warn you there is 153 pictures. I highly recommend Royal Caribbean and will cruise with them the next time.

So, it is now 5 days until we leave for our cruise. All of the details are finished and Burt is packed. I on the other hand am not. For the most part, I tend to wait until the last minute to pack, because I am an overpacker. I overpack my suitcase, my toieltry bags, my overnight bag, everything. We are leaving Sunday night, so maybe by Sunday afternoon I can be packed. We are very excited about our trip and hope the weather cooperates with us. Burt and I plan on doing as much as possible on and off of the boat,he even agreed to sing karaoke with me (believe that or not). We will be visiting Margaritaville in Key West and in Cozumel, Mexico (shocking, I know). I am most excited about Belize. I am not sure why, I guess because I have not been there before, so it there will be new things to do and see. Okay, okay enough rambling about our trip before we even go. More rambling to come when we return!

5 YEARS!!!

Tomorrow Burt and I will celebrate our 5th anniversary. I do not deserve Burt. He is kind, gentle, smart, funny etc, etc. Most of all he takes care of me, through good times and bad. As I look forward to many more years I could not be more excited for what the future holds. To my fantastic husband, I am more in love with you today, than the day we married, but less than tomorrow!!! Happy 5 years, I Love You.

You never know who much someone means to you until you have seen them at their worst, taken care of them and controlled yourself enough not to puke right along with them, because they cannot help it. So heres to you and I am super glad you are feeling better!! I will be your nurse anytime you need me. ;)

Nikki and Michael

This past Saturday we attended the wedding of my friend Nikki and her husband Michael. It has been a long time coming as they have been dating about 8 years. It was beautiful, her colors were green and green. Her reception was at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center and let me tell you there was a lot of dancing going on. Anyway,they are on their honeymoon in Hawaii. Congrats to the happy couple!!

P.S. Mammie all of the hankies were used often. Thank you!! they loved them.

Happy 4th of July!

Every year at Coolidge Park, the Chattanooga Symphony puts on the annual Pops on the River, with fireworks afterward. In the past we have gone to the park around noon and made a day and night of it. For the past couple of years we have not gone, and I kind of missed it. Burt is not a fan of crowds or traffic, needless to say he does not love it. 150,000 people is not his cup of tea, but he goes because he knows that fireworks are one of my favorite things. Anyway this year we decided to stay on the Aquarium side of the river and it was fantastic. Eventhough there were people there were, it was not like being at Coolidge Park. Daniel, Tracy and Owen went with us. Enjoy!

Today we went to my Aunt Faye's house in Harriman, TN. Most of my mom's family comes. We eat dinner, swim, and have watermelon of course. Most of the time the men stay up in the barn, I can't even tell you what goes on up there, as far as I know it's a lot of lying and trading.

Yesterday, Burt and I went to the post office to fill out our application for our passports. I do not know why, but somehow I feel more American. We had to have a passport to get off the boat in Belize. We should have them in 4 weeks or less. Our pictures are funny, because you cannot smile, which is very hard to do with a camera in your face. I will post pics when we get them.

Fun with Eli

Memorial Day weekend we got to spent one on two time with Eli. After we picked him up from daycare we headed to the playground. All Eli wanted to do was swing and play in the sand. He was not really interested in anything else. After we finished at the park we went to Target and Eli picked out an alligator which he named June. We had a fantastic time, we cannot wait until vacation in 4 days!!!!

Happy Mother's Day

We had a fantastic Mother's Day this year!! On Saturday we spent the day with my mom we ate lunch at Panera Bread, my mom loves the broccoli cheddar soup(me too!). Afterwards we went to Steve and Barry's my mom tried on a pair of bitten jeans (ha, ha) she did not like them because they were too low. I know everybody has the best mom in the world, but I really do, even though I kid her about loving her baby(Burt) more than me, I know I still have her heart. I truly do not know what I would do without her!!

On Sunday, we spent the day with Burt's mom, we ate at Red Lobster and only had to wait about 45 minutes. After we ate we went to see Mammaw, she was very excited to see us all, but talked a lot about that boy (Eli)!!!! After this we went to Glenda's house to see Gaga. I also could not ask for a better mother-in-law, she makes me feel like I have been a part of their family forever and I love the time that we get to spent together.

Friday Night Fun

Over the past couple of weekends we have gotten 2 new wii games, the first game we got was Guitar Hero 3, which I stink at, and this weekend we got Mario Cart.Mario Kart has a steering wheel that you use and it is way more fun than I ever thought it would be. As you can see Nikki and Burt are very serious about their video games.Here are the pics.
