Riley's Song...

Darius Rucker opened for Rascal Flatts last night one of the song's he sang was "It Won't Be Like This For Long" which we have named (Riley's Song) so when he started to sing it I just had to record some of it:-)

Here is the video I made a while back with the song and some of Riley's pictures:


100th Rascal Lovin'.....

Wow..my 100th post! I cannot believe it's been almost a year since I started blogging and it has been a great journey. Being able to share our stories and life with all of you has been a blessing and we cannot wait to see where the road keeps leading us. On another high note: last night was the Rascal Flatts concert....now Rascal Flatts is my FAVORITE band and everytime they have been here I haven't been able to go see them. When we found out they were making a stop here I was so excited but my husband said he didn't want to go. I was bummed but then the day the tix. went on sale for the fan club vip, my wonderful husband got us 2 tickets:-) We put in for meet and greets and got those too...whoo I was ecstatic that I would get to meet them! Last night was AMAZING, Darius Rucker opened up the show and was really good he even played some Hootie & The Blowfish songs...I got to meet the guys, our seats were on the 9th row and the show was beyond anything I expected....I had such a great time and I can't thank my hubby enough!

Not My Child Monday...


Following in MckMama's footsteps, you can go visit her over at MyCharmingKids....Not My Child Monday!

My child did not walk out of this house and get into the car with no shoes or socks on on our way to a surprise birthday party..(I guess it was us who got the surprise)

Our munchkin does not cry almost every single time he has to come back home with us from being with Papa all weekend.

Our child does not beg to watch Spongebob all day long and all night, and we of course do not allow that just because it keeps him from driving us nuts:-)

Our munchkin did not take marker and write all over his new furniture and on the bathroom counter...(which I still can't get to come off)

Our lil' girl will not scream whenever me or her daddy gets up to walk out the room ( I refuse to believe she is that attached to us:-)

Our child does not put on my bras and ask why he doesn't have boobies and then proceed to say he sometimes wants to be...just like me:-) (I know this is a phase but I'm not looking forward to the talks that are in our future)

Lastly, our children are not the best things to ever happen to us and we do not thank God everyday for blessing us with two beautiful, wonderful, and glorious children!

Hope everyone else has a Not My Child, Not So Wonderful Monday!

A New Look...

I have refreshed my blog....it's my first time creating a new header with Photoshop so please understand:-) I promise the next one will be better! Hope you guys enjoy the new look and hopefully I will continue my new found skills on the next one. Just a little side note Photoshop is AMAZING, I never knew you could do so much stuff with one picture program! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and continues into a wonderful week...

Simply Sweet Sunday...

Today was just that, we had a wonderful message at church this morning & evening based off 1 Corinthians 13:4-7....which is my favorite verse form the Bible. Bro. Bob made me realize the true meaning behind every word in it. After we arrived home we went over to mom and dad's for lunch...I actually got the whole yard mowed and still had time to relax while my husband made me dinner:-) The playset was delivered yesterday and it took all day to put together, so we missed seeing the finished product because we had to go to Kingsland for Caydes b-day party...which by the way was so much fun! There are still a few things to be added to the playset so it's not the final product yet, but getting there. So, we got to see it this morning and it is awesome! Logan loves it and Riley even had a good time swinging and sliding (her first time) and then tonight was topped off with ice cream at Papa and Grammie's...which was another first for Riley (and she couldn't get enough) here are some pics from today...

Logan and Riley's playset will be here tomorrow and he is SO excited..i'll post some pictures of them playing on it as soon as I can. Right now i'm headed to bed have to get up sorta early to go with Lauren and Christen shopping for Jenn's baby shower...I can't wait. Goodnight to all and hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Not Me Monday...


Getting back into the tradition of NMM's here is this weeks post of things I most certainly did not do:

I did not enjoy having all my family down from all the different states in which they came from..who would enjoy that:-)

I have not eaten some of the best food I have had in such a long time all week...and have not enjoyed eating it all day everyday! (that would just be too good to be true!)

Logan did not stay over at Papa and Grammi's all week during the reunion...and this house did not stay quiet or clean because of it:-) How could a 5 year old be messy anyway..lol

I did not find it disturbing that so many well-known people passed away all within 2 weeks of each other...so sad!

I won't miss any of family as they all start leaving tomorrow to head back home, and won't miss seeing them for another 2 years!

Last but not least....I did not like having all this time to spend with family and friends and won't miss it one bit, nope NOT ME!

Family, Food & Fireworks...

If you were wondering where I have been for the past week I have been enjoying my family from all around:-) We had out family reunion here in Florida this year and it was so much fun. I love being getting to see everyone and how much they have changed over the years! We have been everywhere and going non-stop since they arrived last Sunday. I have tons of pictures to put up but I am going to do them in a separate post. Here are a couple pics from our dinner the other night...more to come:





BOOGITY..BOOGITY..BOOGITY..LETS GO RACING BOYS!

So, for our Fourth of July we went to the Coke Zero 400 down in Daytona. It was really, really, really hot but so much fun! I'm not going to do a big long post because most of it is going to be pictures. My man Tony won which made it even better and Chris's man Denny came in 3rd so it was a really good night...best thing to happen though was Kyle going into the wall in the last lap:-) Isn't it bad when everyone cheers when you wreck...:-) Here's some pics, hope you guys enjoy:
