Fabulous Weekend

We had a fabulous weekend. Saturday night we had a poker party. It was great. My bother in law won for the first time. Sunday I was just lazy all day. I don't know what got into me but I didn't want to do anything. All I did all day was watch tv and cook dinner. Sometimes I guess you just need the rest.

Praying for Matthew

My sister in law's oldest son went into the hospital last Friday not being able to breath. He was admitted and they put a ventilator in. They said he has double pnemonia. He isn't doing well today. They are thinking maybe he got a chemical splash. He is a mechanic and maybe he inhaled the chemicals. Today I went to the hospital after work to help my sister in law with my 10month old niece. I can keep her while everyone else goes in to visit. She is the cutest baby of all. Please pray that Matthew has a fast recovery. I hope he can take the ventilator off and he is able to breath on his on. The last visit they did say he looked a lot better than this afternoon.

This weekend I am going to get the rest of the kids, Kaity Rose, Lindsi and Luke. We are going to have barbq with my friend Chrissy and her kids. We are going to have a great time.

Stormy Weather

I am so excited it is the weekend. It didn't start off great at all. Last night I got home from work and my husband has a 98 Ford Ranger that he just drives back and forth to work or if there is something we need to haul. We do have a Nissan Titan '09 but that just sits in the garage, so we wont put miles on the truck. So, I got home and he thought something was wrong with his battery because the light came on. We rode up to Auto Zone for them to check it on their machine. It turned out to be the alternator. We went ahead and bought a battery as well. We stopped by Burger King for some dinner and was heading to my brother in laws place so he could help put the parts on the truck. We made it 3/4 of the way and broke down. There is no other feeling then braking down in the middle of the rode going up a hill. These kids came by us with an old old truck that could barely make it up the hill and started laughing at us. I have a few words for them. hahaha..... My brother in law pushed us the rest of the way to his house. They got the truck finished by 10 p.m. Then we were on our way home. Very interesting Friday night.

At 4:3o a.m. we were woken up by thunder rolling and rolling and rolling. Need I say more. I have never heard thunder roll so much. It was shaking the house. The lightening was bad it just lit up the room. My dog started going crazy over the thunder. It also hailed here as well. I started to worry because they always say hail before the storm. Uh oh. We have Satellite so I couldn't watch the TV to see how bad the weather is. It finally calmed down after an hour. So, I slept in this morning.

Tonight I am meeting my friend Chrissy for dinner. I can't wait. I haven't seen her in 2 weeks.

Hope everyone else has a great weekend, and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there.

This what Aspen will be doing today since he woke us up at 4:30 a.m.

Show us where you live Friday!

Today is show us where you live. A sweet blogger named Kelly at Kelly's Korner came up with this for Friday's. I missed the kitchen edition. Today is show us your living room.

My husband and I moved in our new home 4 years ago this month. We were wanting a new home because we would like a bigger house. So we decided to sell our old house and start looking for a new one. My step mother has a friend that sold houses in a subdivision for this one builder. We went and took a look at his houses that he had for sale. Well me and John both decided we didn't like any of his layouts. So, we decided to build our own house. One day we came up with the idea of looking on the Internet for house plans. We were at work and I told him to print off the ones he likes and I will print off some houses that I like. I couldn't believe when we got home we had printed off the same house plans for 3 houses. So we decided on this house but took it to the builder and changed a lot of things. We were not suppose to have an upstairs but it was do able with the builder so he added us an whole upstairs as well. We couldn't have been happier.

So here is our living room!

Can't wait to see everyone's living rooms. I loved the kitchens. Thanks for stopping by!

Rainy Weekend

Hi Everyone, This weekend it rained, and rained, and rained. It never quit raining. We wanted to mulch the flowerbeds this weekend but unfortuately it rained...LOL

My brother in law asked me to keep my nieces this weekend because it was my sister in laws 40th birthday and they wanted to spend the night alone. I picked the girls up Friday after work and we went to Chili's for dinner. We also took my mother in law as well. Saturday we didn't do much at all. Laundry and slept most of the day since it was nice sleeping weather. Saturday night we had to take my niece bowling since she is on a Saturday night bowling league and this Saturday was their last night bowling for the season. My nephew Jamie and his brother came along as well. By the end of the night we inquired 6 children that wanted to come over and stay the night. We all decided that on Sunday we were going to see the movie Wolverine. So today we woke up and went to the movies and the mall. We had a great time. Went to dinner at the Mexican restaurant and then to Target for some Mother's Day cards and home we arrived... Yaaa.....

I totally suggest going to see Wolverine, if you are an X-Men fan. Awesome movie.
