You Say It's Your Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. I was totally spoiled. Mike was off work so I didn't have to do anything I really didn't want to. He and Rachel made me "Breakfast in Chair" since I was already awake and out of bed... you know, cause I couldn't have "breakfast in bed".... since I was already out of bed. You get the picture. I sat in the chair in the living room, Rachel draped me with my blanket, she and Daddy brought me the breakfast tray complete with Strawberry Mini Wheats and coffee. Apparently Daddy needs another lesson in how to make coffee.... WOW. And I got to watch GMA, as is my morning ritual. It was very nice. Michelle came over and brought Katie and they brought me a birthday basket. My two favorite things in the basket (which held LOTS of fun goodies) were pickled okra from her granny's garden and a travel sized Trivial Pursuit game! I was so excited!! I love baskets of things - or bags of things - just lots of little things. Those are my favorite gifts. My big birthday present from Mike and the kids was a bicycle!! I got a mountain bike! I'm so excited! It's just a plain Jane deal from Wal-Mart, but it gets me around the neighborhood. My legs, on the other hand, had a very difficult time getting me around the neighborhood. Holy Lord, I'm out of shape. Hopefully this new bike will help in that. My quads aren't very happy about it, but they'll get used to it eventually - if they don't decide to go on strike. Other than that, I was pampered all day and had a great time. Tanner came over yesterday as well and got to open her Christmas gifts from us. Santa brought her Guitar Hero and I'll need to post some pictures of the hilarity that little treasure has given us.

Just so Annie won't kill me, here is a teaser picture from Christmas morning. I'll post more on that later.

I have no idea what Porter was trying to say here, but it just cracks me up to see this picture. He's such a stinkin' doll!!!

I Didn't Win...

I didn't win tickets to see the production of the Wizard of Oz at the Walton Arts Center. :( I'm bummed. I want to take Rachel to see it. We'll see. I guess I should go ahead and buy my tickets now, though, huh? Just wish I'd have won those things...

A Tacky Christmas

Our Sunday school group from church at our Christmas party....
Mike was dressed as Cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation and I was in an 80's style sweater with a side ponytail....

Oh yes. We did. And it was TACKY!!!

I'm officially reverting back to my teenage years by reading these books, but Oh My GOSH, they are good! I'm completely hooked. I started to say, "they've sucked me in", but that would be a little pun-ish, considering their theme and all.

I've finished Twilight and now I'm in the beginnings of New Moon. I've heard this one might take a while to get through some not-so-engaging moments, but I'm willing to perservere. I gotta find out if Bella will ever get what she really wants and if Edward will somehow give in and make Bella a vampire. I cannot even believe I'm reading these. I roll my eyes at my husband every time he brings any kind of vampire movie or book into this house and now it's ME bringing the stuff in here! Ridiculous, I know. But I can't help it...

Team Edward Rocks!! :)

A Rock and a Hard Place

Do you ever feel like, no matter what you do, someone always thinks your wrong? Doesn't matter what you do, how you act, or what you say, regardless of how right it is, you're still failing? Yeah. Me too.
