Happy Easter!

Happy Easter weekend!

I decided to pull out an old picture for this post. This picture was taken about 23 years ago. That's my cousin Gabe. He was my bestest (and first ever) best friend. We did everything together.......including coloring eggs for Easter. Align Center

Still to this day I have no idea how he stood to be around me as much as he did. We had lots of fights and fusses, but some really great memories too! I may just call him up and see if he wants to re-make this memory this weekend!


Royally over it!

Yes, I know I am about to get some nasty comments, but I really am over hearing about the Royal Wedding. Honestly, I'm thrilled for Prince William and Kate. Congrats on them FINALLY getting it together and making that trip down the aisle. However, I don't feel the need to hear about and see it constantly for the next 8 days. Nor have I enjoyed it for the past month. I get it! It's a BIG deal! Again congrats!

I just think we could spend a little less time pouring over Kate's outfit ensembles and focus on oh I don't know gas prices, the continued fighting in Libya, Donald Trump wanting to be President (big post on that later), Social Security or Medicaid...........just saying.

Just a side note: We had a patient call to schedule her root canal yesterday. She said her face is swollen and she cannot eat or drink, but can only be seen on a Friday. When she was told the first available Friday appt is on the 29th her response was........Ummm I can't I'm going to be watching the Royal Wedding........yea true story!

I do think they look lovely together and will have beautiful children.

Her ring is unique, not my style, but unique none the less.

This is probably my favorite picture (that I have been forced to see) (thanks and E News) yet. They do look genuinely happy.

I will not be getting up at 4 a.m. to watch the Royal Wedding. E News will watch, pick out the highlights for me, and I think i'll manage to live without having seen the live broadcast.

Tinkle Tents

So....i'm not gonna lie....when Cassie found out she was having a boy I was very depressed. I saw all those tea parties, tutus, ruffles and pink go flying out the window. The thought of buying for a boy instead of a girl seemed less thrilling. Well that was until I actually started to look in the boy sections of stores. I always make diaper cakes for boy baby showers as my gift. Sometimes I throw in an outfit or toy, but not often. Boy clothes just aren't as cute. I like polka dots and the vintage owls. Neither of which are okay (in my brother-in-law's opinion) for a boy.

However, over the last few months I have been bound and determined to find the cutest, most stylish boy clothes on the market. At some point in this search I found "tinkle tents".

Apparently little boys feel the need to pee each and everytime their diapers are opened.


ETSY had some really cute fabric options

I got a set of 4 similar to these for $6!

Can't wait for Tate to get here so we can try these out!

Some people just don't need Facebook

Yea, I said it....and i'm prepared to back it up with facts!

1. If you don't want everyone in your business stop putting it on FB.

2. Don't get mad when someone gossips about your FB posts or pictures.

Again remember you were the one to put it out there in the first place.

3. Take ownership of whatever you post. Don't blame your 4 year old for a post bashing your best friend when clearly you just had too much to drink and decided to drunk post on FB.

4. If I don't accept your friend request on the first, second or third attempt please stop. Obviously I don't want to be your friend. In real life or otherwise.

5. Continue to send me those stupid game requests and I will delete you.

Simple enough?

6. Making inappropriate comments on my pictures will also get you deleted.

7. Posting your every move and thought throughout the ENTIRE day will too result in your deletion. This is NOT twitter people! If you feel the need to tell us every move you make you may need to re-analyze your life. Just saying!

8. Answering odd questions about me and posting them to my wall=not cool!


9. Tagging me in those stupid "Who are your top fans" and "Best Friends Forever" tree collages....again STOP!

10. Try an use good judgement people....that's all i'm saying.

How many does it take?

Pow Wow

A better question is how long does it take 4 guys to appraise a boat's a bank parking lot....on a Saturday.....that I could have been laying out in the sun.

Not saying.......just saying.

Fast Five

Clearly I have been living under a rock!

First I didn't know about the bubble tents and now I just find out that Fast and the Furious has a 5th movie coming out this month! WHAT???????

Yes, I know its crazy to get excited about a movie, but thats me.

Plus I think Vin Diesel is delish!

Is it April 28th yet?


What's cooking?

This is a terrible quality phone picture, but I just had to show y'all my 1st ever attempt at chicken casserole. All the girls at work minus Savannah cook daily. They all have signature recipes and special ingredients. When I cook its pretty standard and usually nothing to blog about, but I tried Nikki's recipe tonight and it was heavenly! Yes those are instant mashed potatoes and the steam veggies, but it's just me so no need to go all out! Ha!

Tomorrow its back to the boring bland basics!

Cassie ordered Tate's nursery furniture and bedding this weekend! If I wasn't excited about him before I def am now! She picked the "Willow" collection because of the deer. My Brother-in-law is an avid hunter/fisherman so I was sure it would be something of this "nature" when she finally decided.

Josh painted the nursery this weekend too, so now all they need is Tate!

Cassie is still very sick. She still has her PICC line and home health and doing weekly Dr. appointments. Hopefully, she will start to feel better soon because if not then no baby shower. She can't leave her house, and its too tiny to have everyone there, so we may have to do it after Tate gets here. Either way he is already one very loved little boy. His nursery is overflowing!

I can't wait to meet this sweet boy!

Weekend Wrap pictures :(

How is the weekend already over? Is it just me or does it seem like Saturday and Sunday fly by? I literally was so busy I just now finished watching Grey's from Thursday. Being the die hard Grey's fan that I am you would think I would have loved the "Glee" knock off episode. Unfortunately, I just didn't think it was that great. Pretty sure these actors (minus Callie) should stick to acting and forget about singing. Just saying.

Spring hit me hard Saturday and I flew into full on Suzie Homemaker mode. Spring cleaning doesn't even begin to describe my cleaning escapade. That saying "you could eat off my floors" became a reality. Can I just say that I am in love with my new Shark steam mop!!!!!!

And today my car got a much needed bath.....just in time for thunderstorms to roll in tomorrow. YAY!!!!!!

I've participated in Thankful Thursday before, and even though its Sunday I want to do it again.

Today I am thankful for:

An amazing family

Awesome Friends

A great job

My freedom


My health and that of those around me

and for My Person!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I promise to do better with pictures!
