Even the Chick-fil-A cow showed up and brought sandwiches! I asked our Paster to MOOOOOOVE over so I could get a picture of both of them.
I crack myself up! (I know you're laughing.....)

♥ it!!! Let me tell you a little about why it says what it says....
When Jay and I were dating, long, long ago, we attended MANY Chicago concerts. They are still our favorite even today. Wonderful music and lyrics! One of our very favorite songs is Colour My World.
So thank you Kristen for making this necklace for us - WE (I get to wear it) love it!
If you are interested in Kristen's beautiful work, you can find her here....@ www.klacustomcreations.etsy.com & you can follow her blog here La Dolce Vita.

Texting, IM'ing, Blackberry Messenging!
to meet the others but so enjoy our
time spent online! I've come to love our
and every one of you!
We can't help but wonder what all of this means.
With mouse in hand ...we roam through this maze,
On an infinite search...lost in a daze.
At times we'll band together to gang up on our foes.
We wait for somebody, to type out our name
We want recognition, but it is always the same.
But some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.
We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes we'll flirt,
In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.
Telling our secrets, that have never been told.
The answer is simple, it is as clear as a bell,
We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.
So we turn to our 'puters ...and to those we can trust.
Even though it sounds crazy...the truth still remains,
Most of my "friends" have no faces...and odd little names.

I went grocery shopping recently while not being altogether sure that course of action was a wise one. You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a massive quantity of my dad's patented 'You're definitely going to crap yer pants' chili.' Tasty stuff, albeit hot to the point of being painful, which comes with a written guarantee from me that if you eat it the next day both of your butt cheeks WILL fall off.
I'm referring to that 'Uh oh, gotta go' pain that always seems to hit us at the wrong time. The thing is, this pain was different. The habaneros in the chili from the night before were staging a revolt. In a mad rush for freedom they bullied their way through the small intestines, forcing their way into the large intestines, and before I could take one step in the direction of the rest-rooms - it happened, the peppers fired a warning shot.
trying to ward off angry bees. This, of course, made me feel terrible, but then made me laugh.. Mistake.

My little Jaybird (aka hubby, Jay) surprised me with Kenny Chesney and Friends concert tickets! An early anniversary gift (Sept. 30 is the day). I've always wanted to see Kenny live! The best part of the whole night, besides spending time with Jay, not Kenny : ), was when Sugarland graced the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium! I have one word only...WOW! They are my favorite, better than guacamole and Hint of Lime Tostito chips, favorite!!! The others were Zac Brown, Montgomery Gentry & Miranda Lambert. The entire show was FABULOUS!
There were several moments I could have gone without seeing for the rest of my life:
1. Short, short, did I say short? Short skirts with scrunchy cowboy boots. Really? Not my thing. Maybe I'm to old.
2. Short, short, did I say short? Short skirts with scrunchy cowboy boots. Really? Not my thing. Maybe I'm to old.
(Is several more than 2? Ok, I have one more.)
3. The guy next to me rips his shirt off during "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy"! WHAT??? His girlfriend was all about it! He was singin' and twirling it around his head and the best part...SOBER! LOL!
I just like a true cowgirl...you know...Wrangler jeans, "real" boots, hat...not trying to impress anybody cowgirl. Amen.
This was Kenny's last performance for a while. He even sported a Colts hat for the Indy fans! The last song was "Better as a Memory". He didn't make it through the song before he started crying. Made him "real" and more amazing! He's taking a year long sabbatical to spend time with his family. I'm sure it's a much needed break and I hope he enjoys every minute of it!
So, thank you Jay, Kenny, SUGARLAND & Friends! I had a great time!

Now I could blog about Maeci and softball, Jay and his painting business, our Chicago trip we took last weekend or me sitting her worrying myself SICK because my son just left to drive to IU to hang with some buddies.
I'm not a good writer so I find it hard to keep this blogging thing going. But, you know what, I'm gonna blog about Maeci and softball first.
So stay tuned....I'll be back in a few. Thanks for listening to my rambling!

I failed to share with you yet another photo of Pop in all his 4th of July glory. He saw the hats in a gift shop during our trip home from Oklahoma. He couldn't stop himself...I turned around and there he was looking all Uncle Sam Minnie Pearlishesque (BTW I made that word up...in case you were wondering).
He loves to torture us with his goofiness. We wouldn't want him any other way. Imagine how boring life would be! Love ya Pop!

And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God’s special olive tree.

Close your eyes now if you are easily scared! This will either terrify you or make you cry.
This is my Dad (aka Pop). He was a sport and performed a singing birthday gram for his boss. I didn't know whether to laugh, cry or disown him and move far far away when I received this photo. I was speechless. And that is not normal for me, ask anyone in my family.
The scary thing is that he looks very comfortable. Sigh....any single ladies out there? We need help! We were told that he was a hit and the performance was hilarious! He's even sporting a bra stuffed with toilet paper rolls. His boss turned three shades of red when Pops "breast" hit his shoulder. (That sounds so wrong.)
And thank you niece Hannah for providing him with the lovely red shades to complete his ensemble! Why would you support this?? Oh and I have to mention that my sister provided the bra! I should mention that the bra was not my sisters, it was a new bra and had never been worn. But still!
So, this is a look into our lives with Pop in it. We really are a "normal" family. Maybe....
Please don't leave me after you read this post. I ask that you pray for me and Sheli...pray hard.
