Hoo Are You?

I'm going to try this out and see how it goes!


Here are this week's questions!

1. Have you ever attended a professional sports game?

I've been to several Atlanta Braves games. Last September I attended my first (and Josh's) NFL game. We saw the Falcons play the Arizona Cardinals...the Falcons killed them.

2. Have you ever been to a concert and if so which one was your
ultimate favorite performance?

I've been to a couple of these too. However, I think my favorite was Bonaroo in 2005. If you don't know what Bonaroo is, it's a weekend concert where a bunch of bands play like Dave Mathews Band, Jack Johnson, OAR, Modest Mouse, Citizen Cope, etc. We had such a blast and it's a weekend I will never forget!

3. Have you ever been to Disneyland or Disney World?

I have been to Disney World twice, and actually I got engaged at Disney World!!

4. What is your favorite theme park?

I think Disney World is my favorite. It's nice and clean, the "characters" are super nice, and it is known as the "Happiest Place on Earth!"

5. Do you have a favorite vacation spot?

The Beach!!

Concerts, Home Improvements, & Great News!

I have lots to share in this week's post. First, remember I told you I was having company this weekend for the Miranda Lambert concert? Well the concert and weekend was great! Amanda, Kaley, Katie, and Megan came up for the concert. It was a mini bridesmaid reunion! There were lots of laughs and even a run in with the law! hee hee Don't worry no one went to jail; there was just an undercover cop trying to catch underage drinking and I guess we don't look 25!! Here's Amanda letting everyone know she is OF AGE!!

Miranda had on the cutest gold skirt with a leather vest. She pulled it off well! We sang and danced and had a great time!

Love these girls!

Sporting those "cowgirl" boots.

It was so good to spend some time with people I don't get to see very often. Thank you for coming to see Josh and me!

Next item on the agenda: Home Improvements!
So we have this pantry/cubbard thing that belonged to my Aunt since I was a little girl. I remembered sneaking Little Debbie cakes out of it when I would visit her. :) I'm not sure if your family is like mine, but we pass furniture between households often. Somehow Josh and I accquired this piece. It was this spray-painted green, and one Saturday Josh and I decided to paint it and put new knobs on it. Here's the before:

Here's the after!!!!

The color is "Crushed Cranberry."

I love the knobs! I got them on my trip to Hobby Lobby in Panama City :)

I wish I could come up with more little projects to do...I love doing them! They are soo much fun!

Last, but certainly not least..... I'm offically a 2nd grade teacher!!! I got confirmation last week that I will be signing my contract to become the 2nd grade teacher at the school I was working at last year. Some of you may not know, I was an assistant to the 2nd grade teachers, but not anymore!! I am soo excited and have been working in my room all week! Pictures will soon follow! Thank you to everyone for the prayers they are greatly appreciated!! Until next time....

Caught Up in Southern Summer Barefoot, Blue Jean Night..

I love that song, and yes I've been caught in some southern summer nights. I've been living it up at the beach for the past 2 weeks (have I mentioned how much I love being a teacher...summers off)!!! The first week Josh and I went to the family condo in PCB for the week. My sister and her husband joined us for a few days. The beaches had no seaweed and it was sunny skies all week. Josh and Jason got the bright idea to jump off the pier at St. Andrew's State Park (yes I know this is crazy and just because someone else was doing it doesn't mean it's safe, but hey you only live once)!

We ate lots of great food and got lots of sun!

Also while we were down there it was the annual Bay Point Billfish Tournament. So we checked it out. Look at the 400 pound fish:

I would have loved to stay longer, but of course my allergies were bothering me and I looked a little silly carrying a box of Kleenexes around!!

The following week I returned to the beach with my mom and some of her friends. It was a low key trip, nothing too exciting, just rain, rain, and more rain. I have never been to the beach where it rained everyday at some point. I must say the highlight of my trip was going to Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby? Yes Hobby Lobby! The tornado took ours and I have missed it oh so much. I spent probably 2 hours in that store and got lots of goodies! I was so happy!! It's the little things that make my day!

I'm so excited! This Friday Mirando Lambert is coming to the Tuscaloosa Ampitheather and I have company coming and staying with us!! Yayaya!
