Afternoon Fun

Yesterday was so pretty outside. It was 72 degrees and breezy! I wish it was like that here ALL the time. Even Ringo liked the weather!

I took some pics outside. The kids were riding their bikes...they always want to ride on the carport. Please don't mind the junk in the background. One day, I will get it all thrown away. It's mostly stuff that is left over from yard sales! haha

Jackson was sad because he dropped his crackers.
Jackson and Lauren both got a Furby for Christmas two years ago. They have never played with them until Jackson found his buried under a bunch of other toys the other day. Now they talk to it all the time. I'm glad they are getting use out of it, but it is rather annoying to hear two kids hollering "furby do this and furby do that" while you are trying to watch Rachael Ray in the afternoon! haha (I dvr her everyday!) Anyway, they wanted to take some pics with Furby.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather and wish us luck tonight in bowling for 1st or 2nd place!!

OH!! And...I'm going to be a great aunt again! Baby Diesel is going to be a big brother around the end of December or the 1st of January!


His Full Name:
Christopher David Perry

How long have you been married?
August 19, 2000...almost 8 years and we dated for 4 before we got married

Who likes sweets more?
I think we both equally do

Who said "I love you" first?
He did...and we had only been dating 2 weeks!! But, I had those butterflies and that was love to me! It was like we had known each other forever from the first time we even spoke to each other!

How old is he?
Just turned 30! I'm 28.

Who's taller?
Chris, he's 6' and I'm around 5'8 (i've shrunk)

Who's smarter?
I say I am and he says he is, so I think we are both equally smart, just in different subjects!

Who does the laundry?
ME!! Chris doesn't even know how to turn the washer on! haha

Who pays the bills?
I do.

Who sleeps on the Right side of the bed?

Who mows the lawn?
Neither of us, we have someone that does it

Who drives?
Chris tries to make me drive when we are going somewhere not too far, otherwise he drives

Who's more stubborn?
I would say both. Depends on the matter at hand.

Who kissed who first?
Chris did...like Dena, we were at the Pines Mall but we were watching The Cable Guy. Isn't it funny how you made out at the movies? Now, when I see a couple doing that, I'm like...GET A ROOM! hahahaha I think that may be sign that I'm getting old!

Who asked who out?
I asked him. I had broken up with my boyfriend of almost 2 years to date our foreign exchange student from Germany, Alex Marx. Chris was Alex's best friend and the only one with a ride. So, we got a group together (me, Chris, Alex, Caleb Forrest, and Jerry Nutt) and went to Pine Bluff to see Eddie with Whoopi Goldberg. Chris and I flirted all night and continued to do so over the next few weeks. We were just playing like we were trying to make Alex jealous! So I ended it with Alex to date Chris and instead, I started dating Chad Young from Hermitage. (May God rest his soul) That lasted a month or so and then I just couldn't resist Chris, so I asked him out and the rest is history!

Who has more siblings?
He has two sisters and I have a brother and a sister and if you want to count my step siblings that I never talk to...I have 2 step brothers and 1 step sister.

Who wears the pants?
I think both of us..he has one leg in and I have one leg in! haha

I tag - anyone who wants to do this.

Twilight Movie Post

Check this article out, they couldn't even get Stephenie Meyer's last name correct and this is MSN!
UPDATE: I guess everyone (including myself) complained so much about her last name being wrong, that they corrected it. They had her down as Stephenie Miller. haha

Better Days!

Ok, so now back into the swing of things.....

My grandmother's funeral was yesterday in St. Louis. Everyone got to go but me, but it was such short notice when everyone left, that I couldn't find a sitter in time to go and then I didn't want to travel by myself. Everyone said that the service was nice. My dad preached it and my brother read the obituary. She is not suffering so that is great. I will see her again someday, although hopefully not for a long time. Does that sound bad?

Anyway, off to more happy times. My bowling league on Tuesday nights is almost over for the year. Our last night to bowl is next Tuesday. We were in contention for first place, but after losing one game last night, there are about 4 teams in contention for first place. Keep your fingers crossed!! {Jenny - - I think we are bowling you next week!! Game on chicka! haha}

The Children's Place is having a gigantore sale online! It is like 50% off sale items. These are items I bought back in February for like $9.50 and $14.50 and are now $3.50 and up! That is the good thing and thanks Erica for pointing this out. The bad thing is that the website has been running super slow because they were having technical issues. (I found this out later) I placed my order and it was charged to my card, but TCP never received my order on their end. I call my bank and there is a hold on my card until May 13th for this transaction. WHAT??? I call TCP again and they say they are going to call my bank to get the hold taken off and for me to place my order again. It has been all day and I still haven't gotten my hold taken off and I'm sure my items are going to be sold out as quantities are limited. BLAH!

Advice Needed!! My precious little Lauren who is 4 (will be 5 in May) now has the habit of a phrase I can't stand..."I hate you!" What to do to get her to quit this? Every time she gets mad...(i.e. doesn't get her way) she tells me I'm mean and "I hate you!". This hurt my feelings the first 10 times she said it and she was told to never use the word hate ever again all 10 times. Now my feelings aren't hurt, but frustration has definitely set in! I have taken toys, sit in time out, had a spanking, told sternly...what else is there to do besides wash her mouth out with soap (which by the way doesn't work on her, she says it tastes like ice cream!)? Much to my embarrassment, her preschool teacher called me today and said that she told another teacher that she hated her at nap time. She doesn't like to take a nap, but it is the same thing everyday and has been that way since August...she knows the routine by now. Any advice?

Have a great day everyone!

My grandmother went to Heaven today to see the Lord. She was a great woman. She was always the "hip" grandma. Always in tune with what was popular and you didn't hate getting whatever clothes you got from her for Christmas, you looked forward to it! She is my dad's stepmom, but has been in our family WAY before my time. Now, Lung Cancer has taken two of my grandmothers and one other person that I cared about (my friend, Tara's, mom). At least my grandmother was 86 and had literaly seen the world. I don't know if there is one country that she hasn't been too, well maybe not anywhere in Africa. Anyway, here's to my Grandma Helen. She will be greatly missed.

Once Again...Prayers Needed!

My other grandmother (my dad's stepmom) is in need of prayers. She has been in the hospital for a week and after taking biopsies, they have determined that she has Lung and Liver Cancer. With her age and the progression of the cancer, there is nothing they can do but keep her comfortable. They said it wouldn't be long before she would need a respirator, but they (my grandmother and grandfather) have decided not to use that option. My cousin who lives there (St. Louis) said that he doesn't look for her to make it until the end of the month. Please just keep her and our family in your prayers.

I know, I know....

I hate that I haven't posted since Friday and no, Chandra, I did not sell my computer at my yard sale! haha I have just had a very uneventful past week or so. I'm so boring. So really, the only thing that has happened since Friday is that on my weekly bowling trip (I'm in a league) which was lastnight, I bowled my third 200 game. It was 213. I have bowled 210 year before last, 211 last year and now 213. I guess I am consistent. haha We only have three weeks left and are in second place. We were in first for forever, but we started sucking I guess and are now in second.

My yard sale went good. I set my alarm for 5:30 and had in the paper that it would start at 6. My alarm either did not go off or I turned it off in my sleep because I woke up at 6:45! haha Luckily no one stole anything that I could see. This yard sale was not necessarily a mission to make money, but a "Get Rid of It" mission. I cleaned out all closets and cabinets in the house for my spring cleaning I guess and I DID NOT want to have to bring anything back in. Luckily, I got rid of almost all of it! I was very pleased. I even had people buy some of the junk that was just sitting on my carport! haha So I got a little bit of the carport cleaned off too! Two for one deal! Go me!

So, other than the sell, ebay, and kids, I have been totally consumed with Rock Band and all the great songs that are on there and haven't done anything too exciting! Have a great week everyone!

Yard Sale

Sorry I haven't been posting. I am having a yard sale on Saturday and have been completely consumed with that for the past few weeks. Everything that I have spring cleaned is going in it except for some items I knew would draw more money, so they were put on ebay. Look us up! Junkman3778 is our id on there. This is Chris' store that he sells all his arrowheads and stuff hence the name. haha Hope everyone has a dandy weekend!
