I've been tagged....

By my cutie patootie pal Renee. I have to list seven random facts about me. So here goes...

1.One of my worst pet peeves is being late!! Can't stand it!!

2.When I put on my mascara, I almost always sneeze. Not sure why, I think it may have something to do with opening my eyes wide. Whatever the reason, it is most inconvient when balck mascara is combined with the violence of a sneeze, sheesh.

3.I LOVE anything chocolate. ANYTHING!!

4.I can bend over with my feet together, and legs completely straight, and put my hands flat on the floor. Not as easy as it sounds. Try it, but make sure your flexibilty is in well check.

5.I HATE doing dishes but LOVE to vaccuum.

6.My favorite color is green. I tend to think this has something to do with the color of $.

and #7.I can't grow a plant or keep it alive to save my life,'s a violet. I don't know why, but I have exceptionally beautiful violets ( currently six of them) that bloom on a regular basis and are huge! Everyone says they are a very hard flower to grow, but they must like me.

So know I must tag someone else. So, I think I will choose.....


Can't wait to read her answers. She is incredibly talented!!

On the job update...I finished orientation today, woohoo!! Start working on Saturday. I am so excited!! I will keep you up to date, but O am feeling really good about this job!!

*WARNING* Proud mommy post...

That's right you've been forwarned that there will be lots of gushing and making over my handsome little man. But, dang if he's not the cutest thing all dressed up and in a tie!! He had his Fall program at school Friday, and he really wanted to wear a tie this year. They are required to wear a white shirt, black pants, black shoes, but the tie was per Ross' request. And all I could think of was the cute pics that this would entitle me to. So I just wanted to share some of these. He is a handsome little guy. Watch out mommmies with daughters~this one is gonna be a handful.
This is probably one of my favorites, as if I could have just if...

he's trying to be serious here, but you'll see this is going to change....

you can see with this big smile, he's relaxing...and that means....

yep, here come some true boy poses....wouldn't be Ross if there weren't some silly ones.

and another one....

we'll end it with this cute cheesy smile. I have more, but I won't make you oohhh and awww any more than needed in one day. But he is pretty darn handsome, huh????

But they liked what they heard and seen in the interview, did my drug test and hired me!!! EEEEKK!! I am so excited.....did I mention that already, LOL. God never let's me down.

I got the best news today....

I am going back to work!!! Woohoo!!!! I have been waiting for a call back after putting in my application and they just called me this morning!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!!
My interview is on Thursday!!! I am SO ready to get back into building my retirement and getting back out in the work force. I will be doing what I was doing before I quit work to stay home and raise Ross, only with a better company! I LOVED my job at Winn Dixie, but the company slowly went down hill and has some restructuring issues and such, so I am moving on to bigger and BETTER!!! I enjoy working in customer service and working with people. I am nervous and excited all at the same time!!

I am a hunting widow again this weekend, which I am NOT complaining about, LOL. I enjoy the short time to myself. I can get so much more accomplished when my boys are gone. I always look forward to the minute they come home, but I take my time alone as a blessing! Here is a photo of the deer SL got a couple weeks ago. A ten point!

He will be on our wall. Not sure if I am excited about this, but it was important to him. So we'll have him in about six months from the taxidermist.

I hope you are all having a great weekend! Mine seems to be shaping into an exceptional one!!!!!

Be still my beating heart...

This has got to be the cutest robot around! Ross was Wall-E for Halloween and this was a special day because it's the first time he got to dress up and go trick-or-treating. He was SO excited and So tired by the end of the night, LOL! But he was so stinkin' cute and has the Wall-E voice nailed!!

His treat bag was actually a small cooler and if you have seen the movie it makes sense. That is what Wall-E carries. We even put the B-N-L logo on it (AC Thickers and my QK cookie cutters for the circle). It was a great day and even though he got a little spooked we all slept well.
