* I guess I took another blogging break since I haven't blogged in 2 weeks.

* I can't wait for The Voice to start this week.

* I am really really happy that the sun is shining and that the weather has warmed up.

* I miss my besties Nancy.  We had a great time together in Texas and I have lots of pictures to show you of our trip.

* I am beyond jealous that the fabulous Kasey Buick is going to up and move to Hawaii for a year.  I can't wait to read about her exciting new life that is to come.

* I am so looking forward to school being over.  It's been a long year and I can't wait to not have to drive Caden across town every morning:)

* It's going to be a busy summer for us and I am looking forward to it.

* Loving Cee Lo Green and Adele right now.

* My sweet pea had to work nights last week and one day I passed him on the road when I was taking Caden to school.  When I got back home, this was sitting on the counter in front of the Keurig.

* While I was in Texas, I got a my nails done in black;-)  I LOVED it!  It kinda had a silver tint to it and I fell in love with it.

* Caden and I started watching the very first season of Survivor.  We are going to watch every single season.  We are half way thru season 2 and I am loving every single minute of it.  I am relishing every moment with him because he will be graduating and moving to Texas next year.  I sure am gonna miss that boy.

* And lastly, I am getting excited about the Royal Wedding this week.  I didn't think I would care but I think that the future Queen, Kate, is just lovely.  A commoner (as they call her) marrying her Prince.  I will be watching this week.  Will you?

Hello again.

1. do you watch/read the news?  I don't.  I do watch Rush Limbaugh though.  Now don't go hate'in on me:)

2. how would you describe your "look"?  I don't really have a look.  I wear what I like but I could be a little bit of a hippie.

3. did you play sports in high school or college?  I didn't.  I am not athletic.

4. would you rather give up lipstick/gloss or high heels?  High Heels because I don't wear them a lot.

5. what's your favorite show to watch on tv?   I love to many to name just one.  Deadliest Catch is the first one that popped in my head.  Amazing Race, Survivor, 48 Hours Mysteries, The First 48......

6. would you rather bake or cook?  Cook.  I use to do it all the time but with this last move, I haven't cooked that much.  I do love to bake too.

7. shorts or skirts?  Lately it has been skirts since I have gained 10 pounds.  My shorts don't fit as well.

8. what's your favorite scary movie?  I don't watch scary movies.

Check out other's answers over at Mann Land 5. 

 Hope y'all have a good week.


Texas and a game of basketball.

I should call this Texas Post 1 since I can't show you all the pictures in one post.  So, I will break it up into a couple of posts for y'all.  As I just typed this, I remembered that I haven't even showed you all the pictures from our vacation last year.  That is a must do post!

We decided to fly to Texas to visit my sister in law and her family.  We usually try to visit every summer but since we have moved so much in the last couple of years, we haven't been since 2009.  It was high time for a trip out there for some family fun.

Had to travel in my new Pleated Poppy scarf.  Loving my new purchase:)

Waiting on dad to park the car.

Usually I read on any flight that I take but this time Caden asked to play me in a game of scrabble on my IPad so that is what we did.  Gary always brings some type of history book to read:)

Flying into Ft. Worth and loving all the wide open spaces with touches of green!

So we flew out on a Thursday evening because my nephew was only going to be home until Sunday and we wanted to see him.  He is in college in Arkansas and his spring break was the week before Caden's so that is why we left a little early.

I have to say that when this group gets together, it is nothing but a big competition.  Courtney & Christopher (my niece and nephew) play college basketball and Gary & Chris seem to forget that they are 43 & 45 years old.  I think you know where this is headed.

This was the first thing they all did.

The grown men trying to whip up on the college kids:)

The boy who doesn't play basketball;-)

The whole time my sweet pea was playing, I was praying that he wouldn't have a heart attack!  (that's him shooting the ball)

A great father and son shot.

And lastly, the two old guys resting after dipping their heads in the pool to cool off!  They forget that they are middle aged now:)  I have to say that the old guys held up pretty well. They didn't lose by much;-) That was the only game that they got to play since Christopher had to return to school.

Up next I'll tell you about all the board games we played and my visit with my bestie Nancy that drove up from Houston to see me.

Getting To Know You!

I'm a little late posting but now that Keely is hosting GTKY Sundays, I want to participate each week.  So here is this weeks questions.

1. do you weigh yourself?  Absolutely!  Every single day.

2. what's the nastiest thing you've ever eaten?  An oyster:(

3. snail mail or email?  Email all the way but I do love to send a card every now and then.

4. do you have any irrational fears...what are they?  Heights and being closed in.

5. do you play an instrument?  Years ago, the piano & the flute.

6. would you rather be bitten by a snake or attacked by a bear?  Neither but I think I would chose a snake because you'd have a better chance of living.  (I think)

7. do you ever go braless in public?  Yes but it is in a sundress with a sweater:)

8. today i am thankful for........................?  My husband.  That's a given;-)

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I have been catching up with the laundry and getting ready for the real world again tomorrow.  I'll be back soon with photos of our trip to Texas.


Texas. Yee Haw!

That's where we've been this past week.  It was spring break so we decided to go and visit my sister in law and her family.

We had a great time and I have lots to tell you about but first there is mail to go through, bags to unpack, and laundry to do.  (oh yeah, and 10 pounds to lose! urgh!)

I will be back soon with all the details and will be catching up with all my blog reading.

Have a good Sunday.
