My day off!

SO, I was off Thursday and Friday this past week, then today! It has been lovely, but I can't really tell you that I've done much that has been productive!
The plan was for me to be off in order to prepare for, then clean up after, our fence party. Said party was moved to this next weekend (8/28), so my time off was kind of worthless. I no
w cannot take off this friday before the party because I have to attend a day-long tr
aining with work on Fri... so, what do you do?

Thursday- I don't really remember what I did, but I'm thinking I did some house-work. ??
Friday- I went to the Dr., came home, thought I was dying, and then took a nap. I then proceeded in Happy Houring my way around Nashville with friends from my work, then friends from D's work, and then Ihop with Evan & Carol after that!
Saturday we didn't do anything all day until we went to Amy & Wes's Wedding shower...
Sunday, D & I mulched the front yard and redid part of the flower beds... we are now PROS at mulching!

Today, I haven't done much of anything. I had my alarm set for 8:20 so that I would get up and get going... didn't happen. Martini spent the evening puking again last night, and Carmen then threw a fit until we let her sleep with us... I got up at 10:20. I then decided to do some laundry and make a grocery list. This turned into me sitting in the floor for two solid hours watching Jerseylicious and coupon clipping to no avail. I did, however, make a pact with the dogs that Jersey is the ONE STATE I will never consider living in... mostly because of the hair, makeup, and complete insanity of that show (as well as Jersey Shore) it's like this place is a completely different PLANET!
At some point, I cleaned the front porch and moved all the rocks that we took out of the flowerbeds.... I went to the grocery store and spent $101 on fresh fru
its and veggies and veggie meats and free-range chicken. I then came home and decided I was going to make lasagna for dinner. I had Rice-Lasagna noodles already here, and I had purchased the fresh stuff to make spaghetti sauce to go with it. I just decided that the sauce tastes too good to go IN something and needs to be the star, so D has to get rice-spaghett
i noodles on his way home. Love him!
I am really slow at uploading pictures from my camera... so these should have been put up here about 2 weeks ago. Rachel's Surprise Baby SHOWERRRRR!!!
This was (obviously) the second she walked through the dooooooor

Aaron, so proud to have pulled off a surprise for the un-surprise-able

Opening my present... she loved the shoes!
Crap. Neighbor's internet is not holding up. I'll put more up later when other people aren't stealing internet at the same time as me. :)

Monday... not to be confused with Funday

Picture of the day: My great grandmother (96) and "Elvis" (my uncle Larry) at my and Donnie's wedding.

This would be in Honor of the King's Death... RIP Elvis, 42 was too young...
There's your little pep for the beginning of this blog :)

SO today was OBVIOUSLY monday.
I'll spare you all the details, but let's just say it blew.

I can't particularly pick out a certain moment of suck, it just seemed to permeate the majority of the day somehow!

Now, I don't typically like to be a downer, but I just thought I'd share.

I came home and tried to decide what to do to make the day better. I ended up deciding to put on workout clothes so I could pretend I was going to go work out. Instead I cooked- how is it that I usually feel better after cooking something?
OH PS- I made AWESOME cupcakes for my mom's bday. I'll PROBABLY post some pictures soon.

OH!! I had a coupon for $1 off a MorningStar meal thing, so I got the Sweet N Sour Chick'n one (for real meat-eaters, that's fake chicken)... Uhm, how about TASTY! I now love fake chicken. lol

Yes, the highlight(s) of my day have revolved around food.
Tell me again why I don't weigh 135? Do you think these things are related?

So, tonight's dinner: Rice noodles, diced tomatoes, jalepenos, Meatless Ground (Have I told you that I FREAKING LOVE vegetarian food? LOVE LOVE Meatless Ground!!), and Velveeta cheese. It was quite deeeelicious, really! Check it out!

Looks like vomit a little bit, but it tasted awesome!

Today is FRIDAY!!!
Do you know what this means?!!?! Fun day at work, then no work for the next 2 days!
And this particular friday is extra special-
1. It's Friday the 13th
2. It's my momma's Bday

In honor of my mom's Bday, I thought I'd put a cute little picture up of how unfortunate their life was before me the 80s can be on ones' sense of style.

(she'll most likely never see this since she doesn't follow my blog... wait, only 2 or 3 people follow my blog... Crap. No one will ever see this!!)
I love my momma and her hair and her tan.
She's 35 today. (which means she had me at 11?? Hang on a second...)

Terri Beth and I drove to Louisville today for a surprise baby shower for Rachel... it was probably the best 2 hours of my week!

More pictures coming soon, once I take a little nap and then upload them.

Scary Scary Dreams!!

So Martini is laying beside me on the couch whimpering in her sleep, which makes Donnie think she's having nightmares... I think she's having fun!

This is a picture of my lovebugs with Memaw and Papaw McKee in Athens, TN.
We went there a few weeks ago to visit bc Papaw was in the hospital again and the news we kept getting kept getting less-good. The rest of the pictures on here will be from this trip, although not in ANY WAY related to the post. They're just silly :)
Like THESE!!!!! :)

I don't have much to write about today, but I felt the need to do so.
Just a few things I'm thinking about today:
2. My back hurts
3. I CANNOOOOOT WAAAIIIIIT To get the PICTURES I ordered from Kate Whitmore
4. I am excited for the weekend
5. I need to take a few days off to do nothing but sleep!!!
To break these down:
1. Apparently, Tuesday is not the same a Friday. You are still expected to work 3 more days in the week. What is this all about?
2. We played Volleyball at Brad's hous
e on Sunday- I played the first couple of games shoeless... it was not too bad until I felt like part of my back cracked in half, then I took a break and put my shoes on. Still, though. Back=Hurting. Wore my back brace yesterday because I couldn't stand up straight without it... today, I tried to be tough, but it didn't really work out.
3. I ordered pictures last night from Kate Whitmore... if they had come an hour before I ordered them, it would still be too slow for me. I'm just THAT excited. I have since cut out paper in the sizes that I ordered (plus the mattes and frames) and taped them to the wall in the design I think I want these things hung. I don't think that's crazy. Do you think that's crazy?
4. Stuff is happening this weekend, but some of it isn't stuff I can tell you til after it happens... then I will post pictures! There is a bday party.. and I think the Nashville Rollergirls have a Roller Derby game we're supposed to attend, and I think we might go to the movies... and lots of fun times.
5. I can never seem to get enough sleep. One of these days I will, but I have a feeling that day will = retirement. Suck.

One of the pretty places we passed on our way home from Athens.
