Day 32~~

Hi y’all! 

Sunday was a good day. Church was amazing!! Seriously amazing.

Unfortunately after I ate lunch I felt horribly sick. Took some meds and took a nap. Feeling better when I woke up I decided to head outside to find everyone. And find them I did! They had so much fun and I had a blast watching them.

Me on the way home from church

Boys hiding from me taking pictures.

Before lunch and my nap

Also before nap lol working on the truck

This was after my nap lol. Still working on the truck

My boys shooting arrows

Went through the target and the wood behind it!

Boys goofing off

Goofy boys

I stole his seat

Beautiful sky

Not just broke.. Shattered

The lights you see in the dark are 3 of them working on the truck in the dark. Lol one on top of the truck, one under the truck,  and one on the side.. Lol 

Anyway~~   It was a great day. 

Today was good but little man stomped on my right shoulder and arm while laying on the sofa with me. He is feeling very guilty andnow won’t leave my side.

Yes that is an ice pack. I have one on my shoulder, elbow, and hand. I’m now having spasms and pain. He didn’t mean to so it’s hard to be mad. Anyway~~

Love, prayers, and blessings,

Day 31~~

Hi y’all!  

Not sure where to start….

It’s Saturday, so of course, I watched football! 

They were so excited about the game! Lol

They won….no surprise there.

Watched the Auburn game…wow is all I can say about that game…

I got some what side tracked around the end of the game…

My son got talking into going to the Homecoming Dance tonight! His first high school dance!  I was so excited! Lol and he looked handsome!  Lucky we found him a suite to wear! (Like seriously he decided to go like a hour before the dance lol)

They look so handsome!  Love these guys!!! 

Then I got board and started playing on Snapchat. With some pretty funny results…

Lol I had just finished taking a shower and was watching Sleepless in Seattle. Yes I know old school! But me and the bestie were waiting for the boys to get done and need a ride home. It was all cut up so during the commercials I played on Snapchat. (Something I don’t do often) 

Boy got done…said they had fun…lol kinda lol….got more but well lol some details y’all don’t need. 

Anyway, hope you all had a good day. 

Gonna eat this! Then try to sleep! Plan to head to church tomorrow with the kiddo!! 

J’s flowers from tonight. He had a pretty date…bestie is going to save them (dry them) 

Anyway lol once again! Night y’all!! 

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends!!


Other random pictures from today to follow! 

Found stashed in my friends truck lol

Night y’all! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜Žβœ‹πŸ’œπŸ˜πŸ˜˜

Day 29~~

Hey y’all!  

First I like to thank y’all for following my blog! I’m beyond excited that 20 of y’all think I am worth following!  (Technically it’s 21, but I’m not sure if family counts πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ cause 1 is sister mine!😜)

Anyway! This week has been a tough week…well Sunday was a good day. 

My beautiful bestie, her kiddo, and me headed to church!

Love him!!

3 outta 4 of my boys! Love them! #theyareallinblack #didtheyplanit 

Church was great as usual! We swung by the hospital on the way home to see Uncle R.(He is bestie’s uncle and mine because I got “adopted” into the family.) He was getting ready to have a procedure done to his heart on Monday.  (Prayers for him would be great as he has been in and out of the hospital a lot lately. ) 

He walked us out saying he needed some fresh air. 

Flags outside of the hospital

Anyway~~ Sunday was good. Kiddo came home late from his trip with his daddy. Monday was long…

Uncle R’s procedure went ok…just took longer than they expected.  He is already home and resting now.

 Tuesday and Wednesday were…emotional. 

Cooked both nights spaghetti and stroganoff. Stroganoff is the only one I got a picture of though.

Today bestie’s hubby ran me to the bank….

It was a deposit a$1 in the bank kinda day…πŸ˜•πŸ˜•


Yes you are seeing that right…I for real had to deposit a dollar into my checking account so I could pay a bill online. Yes that’s the kind of day I had. Afterwards we had to drive all over back roads to run by and see the bestie at work. (She needed something out of the truck). We had to go all over everywhere because a cement truck decided to fight with a train this morning down the street from bestie’s work. Train won. Truck driver and all CSX people are ok, but it made a huge mess they were STILL cleaning up hours later. 

Burned again while cooking

(Please ignore my bad hair lol coming outta my hat and my dirty mirror)  Yes I once again burned my arm cooking dinner..this time a little bigger area. It hurts like hell y’all!  And in my head I keep hearing my Granny (in Mississippi)  and my Memaw (in heaven) telling me to “put some aloe on it baby”. And fussing cause I don’t have an aloe plant to “just break one off and rub it on there”. 

Ribs,rice, cheese potatoes, and bread.(ribs on another plate lol)


Dinner was good. I thought so at any rate. Kiddo hasn’t been feeling well and this is what he requested so he got it (and helped cook it after I got burned on the oven again.) 

Btw…if y’all are like me and have a need to take short cuts on stuff….like the potatoes tonight…do not get great value whole potatoes!  Seriously it had only 4 in one can. (I use these and cut them…I usually have the already sliced since it’s hard for me to hold it and cut it left handed.) I was glad I had another can to chop up and throw in the bowl cause otherwise it wouldn’t have been enough. Lol anyway~~ 

Here’s a few more pictures from Sunday~~

Sunday night off my back porch.

Reminds me of a forest at night on a full moon.

This is the necklace the bestie found while in Paris, France with her son. The guy added all the metal work to turn this cool rock into a necklace. 

Back of necklace

Way home from church/hospital on Sunday

Anyway~~ that’s all for now! Going to go watch TWD and Bones and Gilmore Girls on Netflix. 

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends!!

PS. Have a happy Friday and great weekend y’all! 😘

Day 28~~

Hi y’all!  That’s a picture of last nights beautiful harvest moon! 

Last night was a good night. My friend dragged me outta the house to go out last night. It was way more fun than I thought it would be! 

 Me after getting ready and waiting for my friend to come get me.

Diesel playing outside for a little bit.

This is Arnold…or Fat PigπŸ˜‰

That’s Arnold. Or Fat Pig. He’s my besties pig. She got him when he was a baby and tinny tiny little thing! He is of course huge now lol several years later and probably the biggest most pampered baby of all of her 4 legged babies! 
Anyway~~ me and AK went to a little bar in Montgomery….about a hour away from where we live, but she knows some people who like to hang out down there. So off we went. 

Ofcourse we had to get a selfie!! 

Loud music, free drinks, good laughs, dancing, and bad karaoke!  It was great!! We had so much fun! 

On the way home I was of course starving and so we stopped at on the way home. It’s one of those Loves truck stops that had an Arby’s attached to it. And y’all,  I saw a tiny house!!! I was excited lol! 

If I didn’t have a son who was 6’4 275 I would totally have one of these!! 

This was…my second sandwich….lol..I told you I was hungry! Lol

Me at the end of the night. Shortly there after I was passed out! It really was a great night.

So today I got to watch football. Dang was the Bama game a nail bitter. Then , because I am at the bestie’s house and everyone but me in it are Auburn fans, I missed some of the end of the game. Hello big D man getting the pick 6!! Roll Tide!! 

So while watching the Auburn game bestie got out her Halloween/ Fall decorations out to start the decorating process. This was soooo much fun!!! Lol

Bestie’s hubby lol

Bestie sitting in her hub’s chair scaring Ivy

Chuck was not wanting to be the witch..lol

Bestie!

So all that got put on hold as we were watching the end of the game….lol well tried too. Lol we got a little side tracked playing with the pups! Upon sitting on the floor to love on the fur babies, Diesel decided he did not like her hair being up and that it needed to come down…so he took it down! Lol

We finally figured out that he was after her hair thingy! 

Tried to upload the video, but it wouldn’t work….saddly…

3 of the 4…the 4th was on D’s chair like Phiffer was on the end of mine. 

They were worn out from all the playing…

The night ended with chicken fajitas, candy corn, and pumpkin pie things! 

They are amazing!! 

Anyway! I’m tired and gonna try to get some sleep so that I can make it to church tomorrow!! 

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends!! 

PS. Don’t forget to say a prayer for those injured in the explosion in lower Manhattan tonight! Prayers that the police figure it all out quickly! 

😘😘😘😘 Night y’all!!! 

Day 27~~

Funny how sometimes animals just know when you are having a bad day.  Jeep is still having issues…yet again…. I’m beyond frustrated. But it is what it is at this point.  I pray and just keep going. I give it to the Lord. In the mean time, 

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends!! God bless!!

Day 24 TattoosΒ 

As was requested I am going to drop a quick post with pictures, about my tattoos! I am almost 100% sure that I will do another one later today too. It’s hopefully going to be a busy day. Hoping my jeep will be fixed! 

Anyway~~

I’ll start big to small. 

The one on my right shoulder was my first ever tattoo that lead to all the others! It started my addiction!  I drew it at 16. (Yes, there is a story behind it but it’s too long for this post. Yes, I will do a post on it later.) Yes there are things “wrong with it” but a stipulation I gave to who put it on was that it be put on me exactly as I drew it. 

The one on my left shoulder was done a few years ago. I had a basic idea and took it to my amazing tattoo artist and he went with it. It’s to represent my son and I and our first house with just the two of us with the peach blossoms around it. (We had a peach tree right outside the front door)

This is on my right ankle. It was a Christmas present from one of my best friends. She has a matching one on her in the same place. 

This is my momma’s birthday and the day she past away. This is on my right wrist.

Also for my mom. A dove holding a yellow flower. Because Momma’s favorite flower was a yellow rose and her favorite story in the bible was Noah’s ark. (Please excuse the purple dye…) Behind my right ear.

(Again please excuse the hair dye on my neck) this is a heart with an A. The A is for my maiden name. It’s my sister tattoo!  Sister-mine has the same one on her. Her’s is just in a different place. Mine is behind my left ear.

This is also on my right wrist. It’s actually a modified from another tattoo. The original one I wanted was much longer, but we shortened it because of where I wanted it. Yes I got this before Frozen ever came out. The original version was ‘Sometimes you just have to let things go’. 

This one is for my kiddo! 

It says “More than most” which is code for I love you in public. Though he isn’t usually shy about saying I love you in public. It’s on the inside of my left wrist where I can see it always. 

On the front side of my left shoulder I have “That’s life” in French. With hearts. These ended up being all one tattoo instead of two. That is all I have for now, but not the only ones I want and I so plan it get more. At the moment it’s just not possible. 

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends! 

Day 23

Hi y’all!  ROLL TIDE ROLL!! It’s been a good day…all things considered. I got bored and frustrated just sitting at the house. After having something planned for over a week and that suddenly changing messes with my ADD brain…a lot! Plus I was missing the first day of football season. One phone call later and I’m up and getting ready to head out. This did take longer than planned,  but I managed to get something major done y’all!  I got my hair up and off my face!! By myself!! I’m very slowly learning how to manage life with one hand.

It isn’t perfect by any means…but it’s a start!! I also managed to get some make-up on as well! 

Once I got to my friends house we decided to go ahead a cut the lemon bars. Infact I wasn’t even all the way in the door before I was getting asked about them. Lol. 

Seriously got them cut and they were gone lol. Half the pan was gone within 30 minutes. 

(Me making faces playing on the phone) I’m shari g this picture for one reason…notice my hair is back….another feat…I mean I wouldn’t trust it holding up to anything besides watching football,  but it worked! 

Yes..that is the dye I tried to do to my hair…I now have more actual purple color on my pillow case than the back of my head. Now I am icing my hand and shoulder as it’s on fire and swollen. So…for every step forward…oh well. 

Anyway! So I was excited that my friend’s house had a tv that had split screen to watch the games. Yes the games…I am an Alabama fan and this whole house is full of Auburn fans!

For the most part I was the only one actually watching the games. Well,  besides these cuties!!

This is Ivy (dark girl) and Diesel (light boy)

The older two were wandering around the house and wouldn’t sit still for me to take a picture. The people in the house…well some weren’t home and one was asleep. Anyway! I enjoyed the games! Now I’m watching tv, hoping my meds kick in soon so I can get some sleep. I am very sore though and don’t know if I will actually sleep. It happens.  I won’t be able to go to church in the morning because the jeep is rattling….I’m hoping it will make it back up the hill to Pop’s. Hopefully he can tighten whatever is lose and I can get him some black walnut icecream as pay ment! Helps he loves me because his daughter is my best friend for almost the last 10 years! 

Anyway~~guess me and Diesel will say good night. Hope everyone has had a good day! Catch ya later!!

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends!!


PS. Loved this. Found on FB. 

Day 19

Friends, followers, family! 

Please forgive my scattered self. It’s funny that it wasn’t too long ago that I said in a post that my kiddos life is usually the only one with changes lately….but…well that’s changed to some degree. 😌😊😌😊😍😍😍😍

I have been very side tracked lately…and on the phone a LOT…and dealing with sickness, both mine and the kidlet’s. Kiddo started off with a migraine the other day, then turned into the aweful stomach virus that seems to be going around. It’s been a rough few days. Although I did manage to get a breakfast date before the crud hit. My son is now feeling better but the virus of course has hit me. Thank you craptastic immune system. I have another date coming up soon and need to be feeling better. Pictures to come later. Yes I was for real so nervous and excited that I forgot to take even a single picture on our first date. I did remember to take a picture with my sister from later the same day.

Me and Sister-mine! 

Y’all I am pretty sure that smile is left over from my date that morning….even though it’s clearly SEVERAL hours later! I’m off guys! I’m starting to feel like death again, but felt a burning need to make sure I got a post in so said date’s oldest can continue to cyber stalk me! (Hey T!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait til Friday!)

Y’all have a great day!! 

Love, prayers, and blessings my friends,

Day 8 (warning this one is kinda long! Lol )

This is day 8 and what I am about to post,  I should have posted last night. I have come to realize that there are some days I just have more to say and do another post or add to the one already done. Anyway~~ So last night I made dinner. 

 (Honey BBQ Chicken, rice, corn/potatoes,  and sweet tea) 

I am very proud of myself for this!! It took way longer than it normally would, and yes it frustrated me, but I got it done! One handed lol 

 I don’t remember buying this but I literally almost cried when I saw the top of these cans!! I can open these! Granted, yes, my shirt got some on it too, but Thank you Jesus! I can open these! Here is the end result that was quite yummy! 

 Sorry I forgot to take the picture before I had started to eat. Lol 

So that was last night. Now for today….. Today was a busy day …as yesterday rolled into today, I could be found watching season 2 of Jane the Virgin on Netflix. (I got to episode 17 before my phone screamed enough and died.) After making sure the kid was up and out the door for school,  I decided I could finally sleep.  This ended up being a nap as I got a call from a friend who needed me to drive him to the ER since his wife was at work. So up I got and off I went (after a shower and he came to get me). While waiting for him to get here I figured I had better get a picture for today. I decided to document the fact that I was indeed out of the house. 

 please excuse my half dry fuzzy hair.  I really need to condition it! 

So off to the ER we went. Side stop at Taco Bell cause ya know..hunger. Lol Friend got admitted to the hospital (prayers would be great. Bad infection). I take truck back to his wife and swing to pick up the kid on the way. 

 Y’all I LOVE and ADORE these 3 boys!!! This is us on the way to bible study tonight! They are friends who are family! These three can always bring a smile to my face! And I seriously love that they know they can tell us anything…and they do! Tonights conversation consisted of who they thought looked hot this year and how one had wanted to smack another one for saying like 30 times in one class “Dude!She’s so hot!” (one in the middle almost got smacked by the big one..by mine lol) The discussed who had what teacher and who was having lunch with who. This was important as the one with no sleeves on is known to sit with a table full of girls each year because they end up bringing him extra food. (Seriously this has been going on since 6th grade) lol so it’s important to know who eats when lol. 

 Me before church

After church they picked up right where they left off! The way home included them singing with the radio several songs! It was great! I am so thankful to be blessed to be in these boys lives!  

Anyway~~all in all it was a good day and I feel accomplished!  Tomorrow I am gonna try housework lol ….probability not gonna be able to do much but I am going to try anyway! Also, with all these books I’ve been reading lately, I might start doing some reviews….I do them on Amazon anyway… Hope y’all had a great day too! 

Love, prayers, and blessings,

Day 7

Ok it’s day 7 and I explained yesterday that today was the first day of 10th grade for the kiddo and that I was going to try to get a before picture of him….

Well it didn’t work….these are my morning pictures of my kiddo 

 

 
1S
Ok first of all….I feel like we have half the high school here…

Second,  y’all I zoomed this picture to get it so the stop isn’t that close to my house. Now people who know me in real life know I am just a loud person,  but y’all,  I don’t got anything on this lady bus driver…seriously I could hear her from my driveway! 

Third….totally forgot it was trash day! Lol Anyway~~so I get a text from the kid asking if he can go to a friend’s house after school. I say fine. (He gets bored because we don’t have internet or cable right now and only has so much data on his phone his daddy gave him)(friend’s house is down the street and has Wi-Fi) So this being said I honestly didn’t think I would see him til later, figuring he would head straight to said friend’s house. I decided that if I started it now I could have him some BBQ Crock-Pot chicken done by the time he came home later this evening. So I was in the kitchen when he came home.Neeeless to say I didn’t think about the fact that he would want to bring his junk home first. 

 so here is my after his first day of 10th grade picture of my kiddo. This look he is giving me is ….well not good. Sad to say he came home with a headache and I ambushed him to get a picture so momma made it worse. And yes before I am asked, we offered to buy him a new backpack for this year and he declined the offer. I offered again not 10 minutes ago. Still said no. Side note, still winning in the momma column…see the purple ear buds? My bluetooth head phone cause his stopped working.  So anyway~~hope y’all’s kiddos all had a good day. 

Love, prayers, and blessings! 

PS ~~ chicken is easy….throw in chicken, BBQ sauce, honey,and brown sugar and let it go on high for 4 hours. Comes out great every time and can be thrown in the pot with one hand.
