Labor Day Vaca!

We're going out for a little bit of end-of-summer fun this weekend with the O'Briens. The kids are flying and the 'rents are driving...isn't that nice...but we're all headed for Cape San Blas, FL. Can't wait to sink my toes in the sand, watch the sun set, go swimmin' and who knows what else.

I'll let you know how it goes. Pray for safe, easy travel!

The Rules:
1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their 8 things) and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I have an insatiable love of chips and salsa. Love it. Love it!! I can eat it for a meal. I can eat it for breakfast. Lydia and I have experimented with perfecting the do-it-yourself salsa. And I must say we made a quite tasty recipe! We'll sell it to you if you ask nicely. My favorite chips and salsa at the present time, would have to be Anamia's of Coppell fame and La Suprema from good 'ol Nederland.

2. My husband and I had chemistry together from the very beginning. We met our sophomore year at Baylor in Chemistry class and it has been a fun joke ever since. I am so madly in love with him and thankful that God made me stay on the vet route for just a bit longer for me to meet Joe.

3. I do not like leftovers. I never have and probably never will. They don't heat up right, you just had them and, more importantly, I usually forget about them after I put them in the fridge. However, this helped many other people along the way. My roomie and best bud Lydia LOVES she was well-fed! Joe is a boy and gets hungry at any random time, so poof, there is food I totally didn't remember.

4. I won a coloring contest when I was little and I got to dress up and get my face painted like a clown. That was lots of fun! I also won another coloring contest in Kindergarten at the Southeast Texas fair! Who know you were in the company of such a great artiste!

5. I love to read. And even more, I love to read a good sci-fi book. I got this from my dad. I love the inventive scenery, transportation and circumstances. However it is hard to come by good stories some times, so I usually rely on my dad's stock to keep me going. Speaking of...I need to steal some more books when I'm down next.

6. I love animated or "kids movies." I guess maybe it's the fantasy again, but I really love it when people use their imaginations or get to be goofy and enjoy life. Too often, as with the news, adult movies are filled with violence, sex and bad language. Give me something to laugh and giggle at any day! And just remember -- "Fish are friends, not food!"

7. I pick at the edges of my fingers constantly. I don't know if they are "hang nails," slivers of skin, or just my arch nemesis, but I can't leave them alone. Any time my hands are free I am flickin' away. This is a habit my family does not like!

8. I too sing in the car. After years of choir and band, I love music - plays, church, concerts, movie soundtracks and the radio. So on my drive to work or wherever, I love to sing. Sing with the music, sing off pitch or just hum along. I like it. And Joe even sings with me too! Sometimes we like to play "Name that Tune" and I usually win! teehee!

People I'm tagging: Emily, Brianna and Joe (don’t hold your breath for Joe)

New Hairsies!

"It's about dang time!" is probably what the poor hair lady's scissors said when they saw my sad head o' hair. After growing it out for my wedding, having one less than stellar haircut and growing it out again for Dina's wedding I finally decided enough was enough!!!

With the helpful referral from my sis-in-law, I took the plung and called Tangerine, a local salon in Coppell. I had a mission, I knew what I wanted and it didn't involve
long hair! So when my lovely stylist Kendra asked what I wanted to do today, I promptly said, "Whack it off!" ... "Please!" =)

So here you see it! My new fun summer haircut in my awesome do-it-yourself pictures. Because when I got home, my hubby was nowhere to be found. Little did I know the evening would involve us staying up until 1 a.m.!!! trying to get his poor truck to start. Turns out it was the battery, and we headed off to Wal-Mart. Joe said it couldn't be the battery, because last time we died we were with John and Lydia in Waco. Now ok, how long have we all not lived in Waco? 2, 3, 4 years? =) But it's all fixed now and we can ride around and show off my new 'do!

(Rockin' the new hairsies!)

Well, last night we had our second venue change for the Tarrant County Blue Thunder baseball season of foreverness! =)

We went to the Lewisville Lizards' home field in...Argyle...kind of like Lewisville. Well, it kinda is, if you don't mind the 20 mile detour! It was a nice park, but then the sun went down and the natives came out to play. Thousands, millions, perhaps of creepy crawlies!!! Grasshoppers, beetles, moths, waterbugs, stinkbugs, don'tknowwhatitis bugs, frogs and who knows what else.

I'm fine with all of this, unlike some other baseball fans, who the only time they were screaming during the game was when one of these nice creepy crawlies crawled into their lap! BUT when we were walking out and the grass was more black than green from bugs, I do have to draw the line!

So if you're interested in boning up on your insects, join us at Integrity park located on 114 and 377/347? in Argyle!!
