Plum Tired

And evidently it shows this morning...thanks AJ. ;)

We worked and cleaned and organized and cleaned and worked some more at the new house.  Still not moved but we're getting closer. 

I think we're taking the night off...I'm tired.  And I need to do some stuff at the house I currently live in like laundry, maybe cook a meal for my kids and Lord help me...get organized for the garage sale this weekend...gosh I don't even want to think about pricing all that stuff.  Oh my!

Y'all have a good one...I'm going to get me another cup of coffee.

A Wedding

My BFF's son Andy was married last weekend. It was by far one of the most beautiful and romantic weddings I have ever been to.  There were candles, perfect lighting, gorgeous flowers, beautiful music and so much  more.  Andy and Lindsey were nervous but excited...there were tears but happy tears.  And there were pictures, lots and lots of pictures...that I didn't take.  Had my camera but didn't take it to the wedding. Decided my phone, lipstick, lip gloss and gum were far more important to carry in my little purse.  So no pictures were taken except the snapshots in my head.  And there are some REALLY good ones.  Good times, good times.

My BFF's daughter Cassie took this picture of Marilee (BFF) and I before the wedding.  Look at that proud momma...she was gorgeous!! 

When I arrived at the hotel Saturday my nerves were shot from all the traffic in Houston. I proclaimed then that I was definitely NOT a city girl. of course we've known this for a while but it was reaffirmed that day.  My dear friend had a cold beverage waiting for me when I made it to the bride's suite where all the girls had gathered.  Now that's a friend!  After I calmed my nerves and got some food in me, the good times started and carried on through Sunday morning when we left.  We had so much job was to keep things light, fun and as stress-free as possible.  I think I least that's what they tell me.  :)

Congrats to Andy and Lindsey!!

P.S. If I come across a picture of the bride and groom, I'll share it with you.

Here For A Good Time

I ain't here for a long time
I'm here for a good time
So bring on the sunshine
To hell with the red wine
Pour me some moonshine

King George has done it again!  Picked up his new cd this week and let me tell you, its so dang good.  No..its AWESOME!!  The man just keeps better and better. 

Should be grateful the cd player in my car is still broke because I would probably be two-stepping down the!!  Yep, I feel the need to go dancin' now...gonna have to make that happen.  The itch is pretty strong, thanks George! And thanks for the gorgeous pictures inside the cd...gosh I could just stare at them forever--yes, yes I'm drooling. Do you think Norma knows how lucky she is? 

Love ya George!!  Thanks again for making my day!

My House

Here it house! 

I did it all on my own. I had a little advice and guidance from my awesome Daddy and big brother but for the most part, I did it.  I took the plunge back into being a homeowner, and it feels awesome.  Ok well maybe I might also be feeling some anxiety at times thinking "holy shit what have I done?!"  but mostly awesome.  I was standing in the kitchen the other day just grinning with excitement.  We aren't moved in yet but I can't wait to get us in there and start making memories.  My babies are so excited about the house...Chris was disappointed I hadn't moved us over the weekend while they were with Jeff but things just didn't work out.  Finally got the gas turned on yesterday...still not sure why they ignored my request (don't they know who I am?) for it to be turned on last week but I'm willing to overlook that this one time.  The blinds were hung up Monday and they made the house look so different...a good different.  I've been picking up things here and there that we'll need and taking a load of stuff with me every time I go to the house.  Once we are moved and I get it all fixed up, I'll snap some pictures and share them with you.  I have lots of ideas, some that have been with me for a very long time and some Canton finds that I picked up a couple years ago that never made it to a place at the Western house because well, that whole life took a different path thing which by the way, I see as a blessing now.  And just so you know...I am traveling back to Canton this year so there is no telling what I'll come back with for the new home.  So yes, there is excitement, happiness and new beginnings in my life and I am welcoming it with open arms. 

Now...if someone could please send me PRINCE CHARMING in the form of a cowboy who will twirl me around the dance floor I will be in hog heaven! 

P.S.  George Strait would be AWESOME!!  K, thanks!
