On such a winter's day!

I am so tired of being stuck in we have had a winter ice storm and advised not to go out (so we didn't). I think I am going stir crazy. My son has been off school all week and we decided we would scrapbook, I have gotten so far behind. I scrapbooked my 10th anniversary party my sisters and mom gave me. It was a surprise my husband and I didn't even know it. A lot of our friends were there it was really awesome!! My younger sister played songs on here guitar for a gift to us (so sweet)! My mom and older sister worked really hard planning our party.

What are you watching?

I love American Idol and have been watching it since season 1. I guess my favorite winner would be Kelly Clarkson so far. 2 seasons ago my sister and I got to go to one of the shows when the idols went on tour it was really cool. We got to get Blake Lewis's autograph (he should have won) we voted for him over and over. This year American Idol came to my hometown (in Kentucky) I am to old to try out (and Simon probably wouldn't like me anyway) but it is cool to see our state on there. I don't know who I like this year yet, last year I liked Jason but he didn't go as far as I wanted him to (his brother is in it this year)! They also have a new judge this year named Kara DioGuardi she is really feisty so she fits right in. I guess Americans (like me) love this show it peaked at number 1 on it's debut this year. So I will watch the bad (which are hilarous) and the good who will be the next American Idol?

Sadie, "Our little princess"

(Well you read about Precious so this is continued from that). After Precious died my son said mom we need to get a new dog I said eventually Well I decided to go on Criagslists to post some things that I had for sale, while I was on there I noticed a listing for dogs well I got curious and decided to look at it. I didn't see anything, as I was about to go off the page an add caught my eye free dog to a good home so I clicked it, it said that a shitzu, brussel griffon mix was free to a good home so I emailed the lady and she emailed me back and told me that she had rescued her that she just couldnt take care of her so I asked her to send a picture. Soon as she did my son fell in love with her, I said we would see. It said along with her picture "Sadie" good dog a little timid. My son said she is white I will change her name to Snowball. Well we agreed to go meet the lady. When we got there the lady explained that she was timid again and said she was a little scared of men. Well guess who she liked first? My husband, she kept trying to go to him. As you guessed it we were hooked we adopted her right away and we decided to keep her name Sadie because she was actually cream colored not white. Her full name is Mersadie Jane (I call her Sadie Jane)! Now she is part of the family I have a son so I call her my "daughter" and since I can't put bows and dresses on a little boy I do it for my dog. I bought her a shirt that says mommy's little girl and my son wanted one and we actually found one on vacation that said mommy's little boy. So now I have a boy and a "girl" And you will never believe what I found out just yesterday, Sadie means PRINCESS!

Our Dog "Precious"

Precious was a Cocker Spaniel. I got her when I was in 9th grade (I said she is so Precious that is how she got her name) we had been through so much together. When I would come home from a crazy day of High School she would be there ready for me to love on her. She was there when fell in love and came home to tell my dad my boyfriend had proposed. So naturally when I got married I brought her with me. My husband knew how important she was to me (after all she was there when we were dating). So there was no excuses for her not coming home with us! She became our instant "baby". 5 years later when our first son was born everyone said she would be jealous, but she never was she was content sleeping at the edge of the bed as I fed the baby coming up for a snuggle every now and then. When she was about eight years old she got catarax and starting going blind in one eye and then eventually in the other. She didnt let it stop her she jumped over baby gates and bumped into walls but she was still just as sweet. Over the next couple of months her hearing went to wear she heard knocking like 20 minutes later. She was getting old but I just couldnt let go! Finally one night she was having a hard time breathing I just held her and noticed she couldnt move her neck she had a stroke. I just held her and told my husband I dont think she is going to make it. And she didnt, she died that morning. We cried and cried. My husband took off work and my sister called and told me would could bury her on her hill. This made me feel really good to know she would still be with family. On the way to my sisters we stopped at Feeders Supply when we were parked there, there was a car next to us with a dog in it my son says that doggy is in the car my doggy is in the trunk! Out of such a bad sitiuation we all laughed. We got her some goodies to put in her box. Finally at my sisters we had a little funeral for her and said our goodbyes. She will be missed and always be "Precious" in our eyes. Dogs truly are a man's (or in this case a woman's) best friend!

Backstreet Boys

I have been a Backstreet Boys fan for 14 years (and counting)! I know what you are thinking a 30 year old still a fan of a "boyband". But the truth is they are so much more than that. I remember it like yesterday my friend came over and said, "I want you to listen to this group I think you will like them!" I said, "I really don't want to but I will." So I listened to them, I thought well they are okay then she began to play more and more until we listened to them everyday! Then one day they were coming to the local venue (just a small place downtown). We bought tickets and waited for that day finally it arrived, we'll neither one of us drived and my mom was sick and my dad had things for work to do. My friend fussed we will never get there, at the time I really didn't care I was just a little fan and if we didn't go we didn't go. My dad agreed he would take us and give us taxi money for home. We'll we got there and had the time of our lives and it turns out another friend and her mom were there and they took us home. After that I WAS HOOKED!! I have been to a concert for each of the tours bought every album and even traveled to other city's to see them. I also finally got to meet them briefly. For those who say this band is for little girls need to wake up I am the same age as some of the members we have "grown" together (got married,lost friends,had a family etc.) so listening to their music means more than just listening to a "boyband" it means my Past,Present and Future!

Marriage according to kids!!

Well the other day I was talking to my friend she told me that her 8 year old daughter asked her if it was okay to marry someone 3 years younger and she replied yes your dad and I are 8 years apart. She was excited and said she was going to marry my son who is 5 when she gets older. So I told my son that she wanted to marry him and he replied we are going to get married! One day another girl asked to marry him and he said you can be my girlfriend but I am marrying "the other little girl". Kids are funny!!
