Throw Back Thursday!!

I have been seeing posts of Throw Back Thursday.  I didn't really understand what they were, but then I read a few.  And I think they are hilarious!!!! So that is when I knew that I could so contribute to this weekly post!!!

And so I present to you, 8th grade, 1992-93 school year!!! I was 13 years old, and I was so rocking the brace face!!!!! What about them teased bangs and and what is going on with the left side of my hair!!! It looks like a big ball of hair!!!!! Shew that is some rough stuff there!!!! At least my shirt was nice and neatly ironed. I am sure Mama and I had war before school that day. She was fussing that my hair was too frizzy!!

So there ya have it ThrowBackThursday!!! Be sure to check in next week for another satisfying picture!!! LOL

Happy Hump Day!

Well we have made it to the half point in the week!! I haven't done a Pinteresting post in a while, so thought I would do one! We may be going to a friends house on Sunday to watch the Super Bowl, so I was browsing my pins and some new pins for a fun, easy, snack, dip, etc to take!!  And there might be some non food pins thrown in too!!! Doing the Hump!!!!!

I think this may be my dish I take!!! How yummy does this look!
Loaded baked Potato and Chicken Casserole


I have done this exercise one time and it is killer!!!  I need to do it at least 3-4 times a week, to strengthen my legs.  This will make my running come easier.

I think this would be so cute for all the little cousins in my family.  On my Mom's side there is six little ones and I think this would be adorable, and on Chris side there is 12, I think, you tend to loose count after 10!! He has 7 first cousins and a bunch of second cousins!!! Big Family!

Monster Jamming!

This weekend was a very fun weekend!! On Saturday Chris and I took Carter to Louisville to Freedom Hall  (where the U of L Cardinals used to play) to see the Monster Truck Jam!!! I had never been to a truck jam either, so I was just as excited! When we got there we were looking to find our section, we did 315, then our row, and our tickets said A, we found C, D, etc, and looked behind us and low and behold we were front row!!!!! How exciting was that! Very I tell you!!!! Of course the 100 and 200 section seats were put up, due to more room and mainly the safety of being on the floor. We absolutely had the best seats in the house!! We were seated right beside of where GraveDigger parked!!!

GraveDigger, Scooby Doo, Crushtation

Some of  GraveDigger's stunts!

Scooby Doo, and the driver of Scooby Doo, Nicole Johnson, who was "HOTT" according to Carter!!! He stood up and yelled, "Scooby Doo" and she turned around and gave him a thumbs up!!!!

Carter having a blast!!!!!

It's Friday Folks!

Thank Goodness it is Friday!!!!! I am excited about this weekend. Chris, Carter and I are heading to Louisville to the Monster Truck Show!!! GraveDigger is going to be there. Carter is so excited!! Sure to have pictures next week!!!
Now some of my highlights of the week!


Jessica and I were guest dee jays for our local radio station.  We are on the
Board of Directors for our local Chamber of Commerce and this was
a day for recruiting new and past members to join the Chamber.  It was a fun
hour to be on the radio, we got to play "our music and talk our talk".  Needless
to say we don't need to quit our day jobs!!!

Beautiful sunrise behind my house!! One of God's pieces of art!

These little beauts were at the Chamber office on the Dee jay day. 
I may have ate 3 or maybe 6!!!!

On Sunday Chris, Carter, my Dad and I went target shooting.  Carter has a good
aim on him!! Me on the other hand, not so much. Lets just say that the raccoons and
squirrels don't need to live in fear because of me!

Finally got me a full length mirror!!!

Really liked this outfit that I put together.
Mustard Skinnies - Old Navy
Black top - Victoria Secret (old)
Scarf - TJ Maxx
Black Boots - Shoe Carnival
Have a great Weekend Folks!!!

I Dispise Going There

On Monday I was off work and the kids were out of school due to MLK day.  Carter had spent the night with his Poppa so he could go to the stock pen (cattle market).  He loves going there and looking at all the cattle and livestock.  The old men at the market love him as well.  They think it is great for a little boy like him to love farming!  Him, his Poppa and another man have "their" seats in the sale ring.  No one else sits in them!!

So it was just Maddie and I on Monday.  I got to sleep in till about 8:00, which felt so good!! I watched the inauguration off and on all morning while doing some house work. I saw the daughter yawning on national television!! I thought to myself, the media will have a field day with that one!!!  Got ALL of my laundry caught up, which felt/feels great!! And vacuumed all floors and mopped the tile! So I felt really accomplished!
We had to run to Glasgow, which is our closest big town, (closest Wal-Mart) only 20 minutes away.  We had to pick up a print I was getting framed, ate lunch at Maddie's favorite, Taco Bell, I am quite fond of it as well, went into Burkes' Outlet, got me some new exercise pants. Then to Wal-Mart. I had a list and only 7 things were on it..... Yeah right who sticks to their list at Wal-Mart!!! Why I hate going there!! I had rather shop at our little Dollar General Market where they have most of the necessities!

What I went for

What I came home with!!

When we got home, Maddie was playing in her room, and walked in and she said Mom, don't you want to take my picture!!! Soooo modest!!!! God Love her!!! 

 And my delicious salad that I fixed for supper!!! Man it was good!! All I lacked was some cauliflower!

Some Randomness

It has been a crazy week. First off,  I traded cars, my previous car, Buick Enclave was a lemon.  The transmission has went out, the motor had an oil leak, had steering issues where it would vibrate and then it had to be hauled away on a rowback due to the powertrain control relay, yeah whatever that is!!!! Mine was an 2008, which was the first year they were made so they say it had lots of troubles. I don't know I am just glad it is gone.  I traded on Monday and got an GMC Acadia! And so far I love it!  The kids really love it since it has a DVD player!  My favorite thing about it is the color, it is the White Diamond tricoat (pearl). Loving how my cat photobombed the picture!!

Really wanting this cutie for the front of my car!!!! ;)

The weather has been nastey!! It rained for 4 days in a row and some flooding occurred.  We were worried about our basement flooding due to it did 3 years when everything flooded on that first Saturday in May.  And very cold, not good running weather at all!!!  Therefore the treadmill has been in use, which I hate!

Picked up my Ipod and found these pictures on it, apparently Maddie wasn't in a picture taking mood!!! LOL

Lastily our school was dismissed earlier in the week due to a bomb threat, district wide. Also earlier in the week our high school was evacuated with a threat.  As a Mom this is the worse fear you can have.  I was never so glad to have my kids in my arms. 
The persons have now been taken into custody and I really hope that they are made an example of so this will not happen anymore !!!

All on 22

This weather is so depressing!!! It is cold, rainy, some sleet and freezing rain.  I wish it would either come a good ole 7 inch snow or just warm up!!! I am glad that we have seasons, versus either warm all the time or cold all the time.  Mainly for the clothing change!!!  I love tall boots and almost everyday I have on some type of boot.  I am not sure what I will wear when it does get warm!!!

So with that being said if it isn't going to get warm here let's go somewhere it is warm!!! Where else, none other than my favorite city that I visited thus far....Las Vegas!!! However it has been very unseasonably cold there!!!

I want to stay here the next time I visit!! Caesar's Palace!

We have stayed at New York New York and the Mirage.  Nothing at all wrong with either one of them, and would highly recommend both, just want to experience something different.

I want to go back to Freemont St!

I want to eat here again. Gallagher's Steakhouse located in NYNY!!!

The Forum Shops in Caesar's!!

Visit the Grand Canyon this time.

Do some of this: Bet is on 22!!! My favorite # Double Deuce

and a LOT of this: Caesar's pools!

That is my wishes for the moment...what is yours????

My Birthday Weekend!!!

My birthday was a great day. It all started with a text from Chris since he was already gone to work when I got up.  Carter asked if it was my birthday and I said yes, he just sit there.  I asked if he had anything to say and he said no I don't think so!!  Maddie got up and sung to me.  Then I received a text from two more friends, Jessica and Teresa!!

Got to work and got some more birthday wishes!! Then Ashlee and I exchanged wishes, yeah we work in the same office and share the exact birthday!!!

For lunch I celebrated by eating Mexican!! My mom, Ashlee, Erica, Kari, and Jessica ate together.  Jessica got me a cake and some lotion!!

Once I got home I was greeted by Maddie who had helped Nana bake me some cupcakes.  The kids had made me a card and my parents got me a card with the best fitting present $$$$, and a scarf.

Saturday night Chris, the kids and I had plans to go out to eat and then go bowling.  On Saturday afternoon Maddie was getting cranky so we decided to take a short nap. Well that short nap lasted for 2 1/2 hours!!! We didn't have time for all 4 of us to get showered and ready to go eat and then to go bowling.  So we ended up going to K-Mart and picking up a few things and then to Sonic!!!! Came home Chris and Carter watched Lawless and Maddie and I watched Miss America!!  She dressed up and was pretending to be each state, while she strutted in her fancy dress!!!
Sunday afternoon the kids wanted to go to their Nana's to play with their cousin, so they went and Chris and I went to Bowling Green to eat at Raffertys with a co-worker of his who also has a birthday this month!  We went by Shoe Carnival and I scored some super cute boots on sale!!


**sorry for the pictures all over the place and the messed up writing, but this is how it came up from my IPod!!!!**
