You and Tequila

I am so loving this song right now.  Kenny Chesney has his moments with me, sometimes I like his music, sometimes I don't.  But this new one...LOVE IT! 

Hope you enjoy it just as much as I do...and you find yourself listening to it over and over again...;)

Here ya go!!

Purple Friday

Once an Angleton Wildcat, always an Angleton Wildcat.  Its in my blood to wear purple on Fridays, especially during football season.  Still trying to infuse that into Christopher's blood...its taken some time but he's coming around.  His Aunt Cindy is helping me this year.  He walks to the high school after school to hang out with her and help with volleyball practice if needed until I pick him up.  She told him yesterday that if he didn't have a purple shirt on today she would not let him in the gym.  Go sis!!  Isabella had no argument this morning but I did put her in a dress so she wouldn't argue with me.  And yes, I have my purple on too!  Told ya, its in my blood!  Have a great Friday!!

Hell On Heels

I love me some Miranda Lambert...and her new hubby is one hot shot of whiskey...but I am absolutely loving this new group Miranda has put together with her girlfriends called the Pistol Annies.

Here's a link to their first release, "Hell On Heels" http://www.cmt.com/videos/pistol-annies/675319/hell-on-heels.jhtml .  Enjoy!!  I most definitely will be purchasing this album!  Go Pistols!!

I'm hell on heels, say what you will
I done made the devil a deal
He made me pretty, he made me smart
I'm gonna break me a million hearts
I'm hell on heels, baby I'm coming for you...

1st Day of School 2011

Yep...that's my boy right there...Christopher Michael on his first day of 6th grade.  Gosh he looks so grown-up.  But not too grown-up or embarrassed to give his momma sugars before getting out of the car.  It was either that or I was going to hang out the window hollering at him.  He chose the latter.  I did have to remind him that you're never too grown-up to give your momma sugar.  A little something Miss Cindy taught him years ago when she kept him.  I'm glad it has stuck for the most part because I love getting sugars from my babies.  

Miss Isabella Marie would not take pictures this morning but I took this one just last week while she was eating her jelly beans.  When did the baby go away?  And look how long her hair is getting!  Good gracious!

  I love my kids and I hope they have an awesome school year!

Moving Along

I can hardly believe its time for school to start up once again.  Christopher will be at AJH this year...which is the new junior high and also the school I attended high school at.  He's not at all crazy about going back to school already but he's a little pumped about going to mom's old high school.  Lots of memories at that school for me. 

Christopher and I finished up school shopping for him on Monday.  One stop shop.  I think he and I both enjoyed that.  Might have cost me a little more money but it was worth it not to have to go to several different stores and drag the boy everywhere.  He agreed.  He's definitely grown over the summer.  Turning into a young man right before my eyes.  I keep trying not to blink but the time keeps flying by.

House is moving along and everything is falling into place.  I will share a pic with you soon enough...its not mine yet.  :)

Anybody Home?

I know, I know...I'm a bad blogger.  But really I have a very good excuse...computer is still not hooked up at the house.  Believe me, I hear about this on a regular basis from my son. 

Chris:  "Mom, when are we hooking up the computer?"
Me:  "We have a computer?"
Chris:  "Don't be silly..."
Me:  "I have no idea what you are talking about son"
Chris:  "no, for real"
Me:  "I am being for real"
Chris: "You're losing it"
Me:  "I think I lost it a loooong time ago"
Chris:  "are you going to answer my question?"
Me:  "what question was that?"
Chris:  "oh my gosh!"
Me:  "what?"

And it continues until I think he's had enough...or I have and that can last for days.  Haha!

So life is moving by at a rapid pace.  The summer has just about come to an end....well summer vacation from school.  It has zipped by.  Paul Franklin's visit was entirely too short.  Miss that kid already but hoping he'll make it back down in October for the BBQ Cook-Off.

Christopher is in Austin this week visiting his Grandma Brenda, aunts, uncles and cousins.  He must be having a great time because I hardly hear from him (the little stinker).  Think I'll do to him what he did to me all those years ago when he was just a toddler and Mommy went to Canton for the very first time....ignore him and not want to have anything to do with him when he comes home.  That'll teach him!  Yea...I won't do that but I will hug him and squeeze him and pet him and call him George. AND.....kiss him all over his face!!

Miss Bella has been going through some withdrawals this week.  With Paul Franklin leaving on the 1st and her brother leaving a few days after that, she has been more clingy than usual.  She asks where they are every day...and every time she hears a noise in the house she says, "bubba?"....so sweet how much that girl loves her boys.  She is turning into quite the little diva and I will say that thrills me to no end.  We have fun donig hair, makeup and nails.  And independent..."no mommy, I do it".  She is a fun mess.

Me....well I'm doing good.  I've recently had some dear friends enter back into my life and they have graciously allowed me to hang out with them from time to time.  I can't tell you how much it has meant to me.  We all hung out together in high school and well some of us even before then and it seems like no time has passed...we've just picked up right where we left off and I'm loving every minute of my time with them.  They are great friends and love them all dearly. 

I'm still house hunting but there is a prospect, a very good one I might add.  Keeping my fingers crossed it all works out.  I'll let you know how it goes.
