The big birthday present unveiling.....

Well today is my hubby's 27th birthday! 
I know the other day I sorta teased about what I got him well here it is

I got him a smoker! He had one when we first got married and somewhere it got lost.

Taking everything out of the box.

Putting the smoker together with his new drill that his parents got him.

He was very excited about this too!!!

Jackson was most excited about the box!

To my husband on his 27th birthday! I love you with my whole heart! I am thankful for you everyday!!

I hate rainy Sundays.....

Or any other rainy day for that matter!! All I want to do is eat. Instead of snacking all day I have been cleaning. Which is NO FUN!!! 
On an exciting note tomorrow is my hubby's 27th birthday! I don't think he is excited about turning 27. I wasn't either. I mean it isn't like your 18th or 21st. 

I wish I had more to blog but 
This kid is driving me CRAZY!!!!!!

Weekend plans....

It is my husband birthday this weekend. Well on Monday but he has to work and has class on Monday night we are celebrating this weekend. 
Friday night we are going to dinner with our friends Brandon and Sherita at the Catfish Hole! I am so excited I plan on not eating lunch tomorrow because I have big plans to stuff myself at dinner! 
Saturday I am sure will just kinda be a quite night at home with J. 
Sunday we will go to church with C's parents.
I love weekends like this were we have one big night planned and then a bunch of just hanging out.

I am mostly excited about his gift, I got an amazing deal on it! I just hope he is as excited as I am when he gets it!! As soon as I give it to him I will tell you all what it is! Sometimes he sneaks on my blog and reads so I can't just post it! : ) I love you honey if you read this one!!! ; )

Big Changes

UPDATE: With the help of my best friend Emily I am no longer able to get on my Facebook. Emily changed my password and isn't allowed to tell me for a while. I even had the notifications turned off so that I don't have to read them on my email.

After today and things that have happened over the last few days I have decided to make some changes in my life. Almost all of this started on of course Facebook. Which I have decided the devil has a hand in creating. Not alot of good comes from Facebook. Yes you reconnect with people from your past and that is great BUT it also causes HUGE problems between husbands and wives, friends and family. So I have decided that I am giving up Facebook for a while. I have alot to work on in my life. I want to be a better wife and mother. I am still going to blog, simply because I like it. Of course it may not be everyday but I will still be around! I had planned to follow in Cole's footsteps today and do a positive RTT, but after the day I have I can't think of one positive thing to say at the moment. That's awful! I am done with the bad! I am going to turn my life around and it is going to be fantastic!!!

I promise the next post will be better! And happier!

Manic Monday!

This boy had his 5 year check-up today
He is in the 90% in both his height and weight.
52lbs and 3ft 9inches tall! 
No wonder he eats us out of house and home!! : )
They tested his eyes which are perfect, I had no doubt about that. He misses nothing!
They also gave him a second chicken pox booster. I didn't know that did 2, I thought we were done until he was 10 or 12. No big deal I bear hugged him and the nurse poked him he cried he got a sticker, a top and a book. Not to bad if I do say so myself! 
Next year they will test his breathing agin to see how his asthma is. We haven't had any issues with it in a while so we are hoping they tell us he has out grown it!

I am a simple girl

Most women on Valentine's day want: Roses mostly by the dozen and in the color RED or some shade of PINK. Me I will take flowers to plant in my flower pots outside in the spring. 
Most women on Valentine's day want: Diamonds that sparkle. Usually that are large in size and price tag. Me I have my wedding ring I am good on the sparkle. Not that I am saying I would turn it down if my husband showed up with this
I wouldn't complain. 
Most women on Valentine's day want: a romantic candle light fancy high priced dinner. Me I will take dinner at home!
This is what makes me a simple girl. My Valentine plans include steak, potatoes, green bean bundles, a bonfire, and a great group of friends! 
How are you spending your Valentine's Day??

2 post in one

Today on FB a question was asked. I am curious as to what everyones answer would be so I am going to ask you: If you could pick between having a million dollars or a million friends which would you pick? and why?
I would a million dollars! I happen to love each and every one of my friends! There aren't many of them but the ones I have are amazing! They don't judge me, they love me just the way I am! I know that anytime I need them day or night they are here for me! So with that, where is my million dollars I want to take my friends to the beach! 

My second question is:
Let me start by saying I love my job and I love the company that I work! My boss is amazing and understanding. My co-workers are the best group of girls! But I have an opportunity to apply for another job. This job gives me summers off along with several days through out the year off too. All of these days are paid which makes this great! The hours are awesome. I would get off about the same time J gets out of school. He will be starting Kindergarten this fall so it would be incredible to not have to find after school care for him. This new job would pay about what I am making now, so that is a plus too. The part I am having a hard time with is the fact that I have 4 years at my current job, I have been told to just hang in there and it will be my time to get a promotion. I just don't know what to do! I need advice!! Please!!! Tell me what you would do!!!

You have to be kidding me!!!

So today at work I was doing lunch phones and there was an ad for Pajama Grams.
They have a Hoodie Footie Snuggle suit! 
I am NOT kidding!!!! This isn't a joking matter!
I have always joked about wanting footie pj's because they look so warm when little kids wear them but, seriously!! You know how much it would suck if you had to get up and pee in the middle of the night and you couldn't get this thing un-zipped and off quick enough!!!

What will they come with next!!

Super Bowl Food

Need a quick food idea for your Super Bowl party well I have 2 great dips!!!

First is:
Homemade Salsa
Here is what you will need
2 cans of whole tomatoes
1- 4oz can of green chilies
1 jalapeno pepper
half of a bell pepper
a bunch of cilantro
3 onions ( the green stick kind) : )
lemon juice
garlic powder

Drain both cans of tomatoes
put those in your food processor
Blend for a few seconds so you have room to add your other stuff too!
add your chopped green chilies to your tomatoes
add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
and 1 teaspoon sugar

Add your half bell pepper
Remember to remove the seeds! Cut into small strips or small pieces
Add your 3 stick onions. I use my kitchen shears to cut them up.
Take about a 1/4 of the bunch of cilantro wash it and trim the ends off. I use my shears again and just cut the cilantro into the food processor.
Next is the jalapeno.
If you want to make HOT salsa cut the top of the jalapeno and cut it half and throw it in.
If you have small children who also may want to eat it, take all the seeds out of your jalapeno. If you even get one in there it will be a little spicy! 

After you get all this in your food processor, put your lid on and turn it on for about 20 seconds. 
It should look like this 

 Put in a bowl cover and put it in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat!

Next is:
Cream Cheese dip
You will need:
2 packages cream cheese
1 can rotel
1 thing of sausage

Soften the cream cheese
cut into small squares and add to your crockpot
I turn it on to high until I get everything added
Add your can of rotel

Brown your sausage, make sure you get it cook really well.
Add it to the crockpot
Stir everything together and put the lid on!
Turn down to low.
Stir every now and then to make sure all the cream cheese is melted!
Get your tortilla chips ready and enjoy!!!!

5 years ago today

Five years ago today at 10:32 am we brought this boy into the world.

The moment that happened I was in love! 

Happy Birthday Jackson! Mommy loves you so much! Even when you are grumpy I still love you! : )
I can't wait for the next 5 years!!

Here are a few pictures from his Ardemagni birthday party yesterday!

Chandlyr was clapping everytime Jackson would open his presents! I love this boy!
Opening Mamaw's present... it was clothes of course. Jackson kept smelling them and saying they smell like mothballs, which they did! 

He got some more clothes from Uncle Roger and Aunt Brenda! We are ready for summer now!!
Mom and Dad got him a Nintendo DS! He has begged for one and begged for one! I found this one on craigslist for $75! It even came with the Nerf case! He loves it!!
Grandpa Scott and Grandma Rhonda got him Mario Kart!
Nick, Ashley, Chandlyr and Baby ? got him Madagascar Kartz! 
He loves racing games!
Kara, Karla and Braxton gave him $25 dollars to go buy another game for his DS. The card came with these punch out glasses. Kara told Jackson she would put them on if he would...... So here is Kara
Here is Jackson
And finally Mamaw!
I love this woman! 

We did a little sledding while we are there those pictures will be posted later
Now I am off to pay Wii with my birthday boy!
