Been in a . . .

Funk I guess you could call it. Life is going better then I could ever want. We have started making friends and I am working again. I have a wonderful hubby that is there for me when ever I need him. I dont know what it is but just I dont know what it is but something is just right.

Enough about that.

We have had an awesome weekend. Had 11 poeple over at our house for a little BBQ on Sat. Made my Grandma's Stinky Steak and Tater Salad. Everyone loved it. The boys played rockband and the kiddos helped out. Kayden made another new little GF. He is quite the ladys man I tell ya.

Today we went out to lunch with Uncle Dennis and our new friends. We then decided to go down to the beach. The kiddo played a while and then we decided it was still a little cold. Maybe next weekend.

Gonna try to get our house all clean and ready for this next week. Lets hope it is a good one.

Yesterday at work I walked in the back and say a box of the beloved one time a year prize.


I needed them, I wanted them but they where for her hubby.
Shawn said that the other day a lady he works with came around taking preorders but he was gone.
I told him to hunt down that person. I needed cookies.

Today on the way home from the beach we had to stop by Walmart.

I was hoping that maybe there would be some outside.

Well color me purple. There was GS and they where selling cookies. After my shopping I got me 3 boxes and Shawn his one. I think I might need more. Kayden is too you for them I think there is an age limit on them. HEHEHE :)

All is right in my house tonight I got GS cookies.


Life has been busy - SO much has happened since I last posted. Not like I have a ton of people that read my blog or anything. but still.

We now have Shawn's car back.. He flew to Vegas a couple weekends ago and drove it back. It is nice to have 2 cars again with me working. That is when the busyness all started. I took Kayden to a Mardi gaud parade. It was one of the worst I had ever been too. The people on the floats wanted to ignore the kiddos and pay attention to the drunk adults. I just don't get it. After that we went and had his pictures taken in Pensacola and had a fun time out there. One of my list of things to get done today is getting pics in the mail. It will make some people very happy. On Sunday Kayden and I did our weekly shopping and Shawn got home just in time for dinner. He had the next two days off so tried to catch up on our everlasting pile of laundry and pick up the house. He needed to take Kayden to get his H1N1 mist,. I would not of had it done but since I am back at work and he is in daycare they require it. Shawn was telling me about there experience. He said that Kayden walked up to the Tech Sergeant in his blues and asked him if he gave a military discount. If I had been there I think I would of crawled under a chair. I told Shawn it either means that he is out with his mother too much or is mom is shopping too much. Oh well. Cute none the less.

We have been busy at work. We are a little short handed, It makes the day fun !! I am still loving my job and going to work every morning. Kayden has started acting out in daycare. I don't think he likes me going back to work. it is not that he does not like Ms Nicole but that he misses his mom and he is gonna see how far he can push her. He ended up grounded this week from toys and cartoons cause he could not mind her and was hitting and being a bully. It does not seem to faze him when he gets stuff taken away. We are gonna have our hands full.

The last weekend was valentines weekend and we had a wonderful but yet busy weekend again. We stayed down at PCB for the night so that Shawn could take me out to a Brazilian Steak House. It was yummy and I felt like I could of eaten all night. I would of if we had not had a child with us that was bugging us to leave. We stayed at a nice hotel on the beach and went for a walk in the morning. I could not decided if we wanted to stay another night or head home. We decided to head home but really ended up in AL for the night to see Austin, Adam and Elle. We had a wonderful visit and the boys played so well together. Austin is doing better then I ever thought he would be doing.

After the weekend it was back to the grind., Shawn has been coming to have lunch with me quite often and I love seeing him in the middle of the day and just having lunch the two of us.

This weekend we are laying low and gonna try to catch up on stuff that has been getting missed. I HAVE to get back in to meal planning or well we just eat out way too much, I have enough food in the house to feed a small army.

Off to get stuff done and might be back later to update the look of my blog. We wills see.

You would think we are real Southerners not ones implanted from the north. This weekend Shawn smoked a couple of pork tenderloins. He made homemade BBQ sauce and I made Coleslaw, Baked Beans, Cucumber salad and a yummy pound cake. For dinner tonight I made Fried Chicken with buttermilk gravy, Mashed Taters, Corn and homemade buttermilk biscuits. We always have Sweet Tea in the house and I use real butter in almost everything.

I told Shawn after visiting AL last May that I should of been born and raised a southern girl. Give me Sweet Tea, A big front pouch and a swing and I am set to go.

In other new I still love my job. Love the people I work with. Kayden is doing better at daycare and his little GF has been there there there the last couple of days. If you ask him if he has a GF he will tell you he does and what her name is. It is pretty cute. Shawn leave to go to Vegas for the weekend to get his car and drive it back. He is gonna stop in CO to fix my moms computers on his way home. I am sort of nervous about it since his car has not been driven since last Nov as in Nov of 08. Please say a little prayer that he makes it back ok. He also just found out that he gets to go to training in MI starting March 3rd for 26 days but will be home on the weekends. It is gonna be interesting being a working mom while he is gone. I know I can manage. Other wise not much is new in our world. My Dr appt went well and we have started the process to get us prego again. Wish us lots of luck. We said we would try for a year and if nothing happened then we were gonna be happy with our family of 3
