Something I NEED to Say!

"Well, you know what they say: if you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!" - Clairee from Steel Magnolias

I've always love that quote! Ha! Something has been bothering me lately and I just have to get it off my chest. Recently I've been called a "sh*t talker". I just want to get something straight. I am NOT a "sh*t talker". I am a very blunt and opinionated person. I speak my mind and sometimes I know it's not what that person wants to hear, but that's just the way I am. I can't really be considered a "sh*t talker" either because I don't talk behind people's backs. Whatever I say without them in the room I would say the same thing if they were there!!!

"Be who you are & say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter & those who matter don't mind." - Dr Suess

Thanks for listening to my rant! I just had to put it out there. Hope y'all are having a great Thursday!

Wordless Wednesday (kind of)

Yesterday the boys got bored and decided to make up a game. They put their blankets and pillows in a line and took off running across them.

I guess the object of the game was not to fall off the pillows and blankets.

Of course Evan never won, but he had a blast chasing his brothers back and forth!!! It was so cute how he couldn't stop laughing!

Hope y'all are having a great Wednesday!!!

My $$$

Last week my mom sent me this beautiful card with a sweet message written inside. As I read it I started to cry, it was just that sweet! I needed to hear those words at that moment. My mom also put $100 in the card too with a message that I use the money to buy something nice for myself. Well did I...NO! I bought the boys nerf goggles and bullets for being good Saturday.

I also picked up a few new t-shirts for them for school. The rest of the money was used to buy Justin's car a new battery. Why is it so hard to buy myself something? I feel so guilty buying myself make-up even. I can't even bring myself to spend the whole $7 it takes to get my eyebrows done. I used to never be like this. My favorite thing was to shop. I loved taking pride in what I looked like. Don't get me wrong I still won't leave the house without make-up on, but I'll put on a t-shirt and my old (& only) pair of jeans. I guess it's just the life of being a MOM! Hope y'all are having a happy Tuesday!!!

A Family Saturday!

Saturday morning we woke up early and headed to Justin's uncle doughnut shop. We met up with Tony, Amanda, Eric and Sarah. Of course his aunt Debbie, uncle Ray and cousin Ryan who own the place were there too. Justin's other aunt, Josie was there and called Justin's mamaw and told her to come up there to see all of us! She came with Justin's other uncle Gerry and aunt Anitra. It was like a mini family gathering! It was so nice!

After we ate and visited we headed to an antique shop to look around. I'm going to have to go back. They had so much stuff I want to buy for the house!

After that we headed to Gringos to go eat. We had to wait for awhile for a table and while we were waiting to our surprise Justin's other aunt Nina walks by. She was eating there with her daughter and friends.

As soon as we get done eating we see a fire truck pull up and hear an alarm go off. Then a employee walks up to our table telling us that the fire department wants to evacuate the restaurant and they gave us our meal for free and a card for a free meal on our next visit. We say our goodbyes to Justin's brothers and get in the car to leave. A few minutes later Eric (Justin's brother) calls and tells us they had to turn around and go back because his pregnant wife Sarah started to feel sick. The paramedics at Gringos said there was a carbon monoxide leak and that it had happened last night too and 20 people had to go to the hospital. Poor Sarah had to go to the hospital and had to be monitored and put on oxygen. She finally got to go home yesterday morning. Her and the baby are fine and so are all of us. We just had minor headaches. I still can't believe that the restaurant was even opened!!!

I'm so happy everyone is okay though! Besides the carbon monoxide poisoning we had a great Saturday with the family! Hope y'all had a great weekend and a happy Monday!!!

Shots Anyone?!

Yesterday it was so funny, I caught Evan pouring his chocolate milk into a block.

Then all of a sudden he would throw it back like he was taking a shot! Ha!

I have no earthly idea where he learned this from!!! (wink, wink) I hope people really know I'm joking and I don't teach my children how to take shots!!!

Happy Friday y'all and I hope y'all have a great weekend!!!

Chuck E. Cheese Palllleazzzz!

Sunday we went to our friends Toni and Bubba's little boy's first birthday party. They decided to have Carter's party at Chuck E. Cheese.

I don't know about y'all, but I can't stand that place. It's waaaayyyy to crowded. There's no where really to sit and when you have a party there they want you in and out!!! When I throw a party I like to be able to visit with my guest and enjoy the actual party. The boys of course loved it.

They played games, ate pizza and played some more. Oh and they also got to pick out their prizes with the tickets they won!

Evan loved just walking around and looking at everything. I think his favorite part was the music and Chuck E. singing. He would clap after every song, it was so cute! Jaxon wasn't to fond of Chuck E. I had to explain to him that he wasn't going to come over to where we were and after that he seemed okay!

I guess that place wouldn't be so bad if you went during the day on a school day! Ha! So do y'all like Chuck E. Cheese or places like it? Just wondering if I'm the only one that feels like I do! Hope y'all are having a great Thursday!!!

Welcome & Wordless (kind of) Wednesday!

Well we finally sold our pool table and I sold our pool table light to my dad. I love that light, so I'm happy it's staying in the family. My dad came by Saturday to pick it up and it was so dusty from being in the garage, so Justin with help from Evan and Jaxon cleaned it off! It was so funny!

I linked this post to Take It From Me: Welcome Wednesday. Stop by and check it out and play along. I just love meeting new bloggers!!! Hope y'all are having a great Wednesday!!!

Fight Night

Friday night was way better than earlier that day. I guess Justin just knew I had to get out of the house, so we went out to go eat at Cabo's (Mexican restaurant). It was just what I needed! Thanks Honey!!! Saturday morning we had our cable changed back to satellite and after that Justin took the boys to his mother's for a short visit. Since we were kid free we went to run some errands. First we went and bought Justin his new iPhone (4 or something)! Then we went to go eat (Mexican food of course, I can eat it 24/7) and then we headed to Wal-mart to get some goodies to make nachos with for that night! After the boys got home, we ordered the boxing match and had some friends over.

We need to get a bigger couch for more seating room!!! Ha! Evan had a blast. Our friends Kelli and Jason brought their little girl Kinley over. She's 9 months old and just the cutest baby ever!!!

We had a great night with great friends and great conversation! I just love nights like those!!! Hope y'all had a great weekend and are having a great Tuesday!!!
