Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Well it is Monday again folks! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, ours was pretty darn good! Here goes my miscellany......

  1. Carissa who hosts miscellany Monday just had the most beautiful baby girl and she still made time to post today AND right after her daughter was born all from the comfort from her hospital room........ummmm.....can you say SUPERWOMAN!!! (go visit her and take a look the photos of her and you will really be saying shes superwoman, she is beautiful! )
  2. My little brother is graduating from High school! I am so proud of him ,he is such a great young man. Where has time gone it seems like just yesterday we were playing with my babydolls together (haha)

3. This morning Eric found Madison asleep on the couch! The past couple of weeks she has been sleeping on her floor, of half way off her toddler bed, or beside our bed on top of the million pillows that go on our bed when it is made up (which it rarely is), and now on the couch. I know it is nothing to "worry" about but Eric and I both agree it's pretty stange or shall we say unique

4. I went to a great FREE photography workshop on Satuday, I learned so many little tips and tricks. It was put together by the organizer from one of the local photography  groups that I am a member of.  It was great to be surrounded by so many people with the same passion for photography as me, and to be honest being able to have an adult conversation without Madison was a much needed break. I came home feeling refreshed and ready to play with my wild girl, who by the way did not miss mommy one bit! She always enjoys her alone time with daddy.

5. If you haven't checked out Kelle Hamptons blog you simply must, RIGHT NOW, and start with the birth story of her second daughter.

I'm off to fold some laundry and unload the dishwasher before the hubs gets home, Happy Monday!

Memorial Day and a new start!

Well hi  there to friends old and new, I have been really neglecting this blog these past few weeks months. But that is in the past and I am going to post at least 2 times a week! (if I don't you have permission to leave mean comments) I have been spending to much time reading everyone else's fabulous blogs and not doing anything on mine! 
So without farther ado here are some pictues from Memorial Day...

We went to our friends Emily and Tim's to celebrate Memorial Day this year. Let me start by saying Madison L-O-V-E-S "Eme" and Tim. So being the great hosts they are they let us turn their backyard into a swamp AND made Madi love them even more.
 We stole the play set from their neighbors (like we do every time we come over) and hooked up a sprinkler, also from their wonderful neighbors, and the girl was in heaven!
She played and laughed and smiled the entire time!

Poor Eric did this about a million times Madi kept saying "again daddy, again"

What is Memorial Day without great food?! Emily and Tim always make the best hamburgers, I don't know what they mix in with the hamburger but they are always excellent, it might have something to do with cooking them on a charcoal grill instead of gas.
Aside from the great fun and food that goes along with Memorial day, we did not forget all of the men and women who have gave their life for this country, one in particular, Eric's best friend and also a friend to me, CPL. Ryan Russell, he was KIA by an IUD in Iraq on March 5, 2007. I will never forget that dreadful day and the phone call I received from my husband in tears telling me he had died. Ryan is truly and american hero, he saved many lives while serving in Iraq as a combat medic and had just reenlisted that January for another five years where he was planning to work at Walter Reed Medical Center. I must also say Ryan was and still is the funniest person I have ever met, he could crack anyone up!
Have a great hump day everyone!
