OK so here it goes. After reading Drea's blog I decided I would bore yall to death!! Although her blog is always funny.

What experience has shaped you most and why? The day I rec'd the holighost for sure was a big one. But also the day Lucas was born made me a whole different person. It changed the way I thought and all my opinions. LOL

If you had a whole day with no commitments, what would you do? I would sleep until about 10 get up go eat some breakfast, the shop for a little while alone!! Then go get some lunch then maybe go home take a nap get all snazzed up and go out for a big dinner with all my friends and family and laugh and talk about old times!

What food or drink could you never give up? Chicken Salad Sandwich and Diet DP

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why? Hawaii or Paris

Who do you have a crush on? Bradley...I know you are probably gagging right now!! LOL

If you were leader of your country, what would you do? I have no clue!! To much I don't even know where to start! But of course I think our leaders feel the same way!

Give me one savory recipe that doesn't include cheese? This is a hard one because if it doesn't have cheese on it we usually add it but I would have to say Meatloaf I love love love it!

If you could spend the day in someone elses body, who would it be? Anybody that is smaller than a size 10 would be nice! I would love to have to carry all this around one day!! LOL

What did you think you were going to be when you grew up? A teacher!!!! Sometimes I still think I might want to do that when all my kids get in school!

Which woman writer, living or dead, do you admire the most? I don't know about admire but I like Nora Roberts books also!

What character trait inspires you most? A Positive person...I can think of someone right now that goes to our church that is always saying something good! I wish I was half as good as she is!

What is your favorite kind of music? Southern Gospel

What is one fact about you that most people who know you wouldn't guess?
I am a little on the backward side if I don't know you even if I do sometime. But I push right over it every time as you all know!

If money were no object, what's one thing that you don't own or can't afford to do that you'd like to have or do?Take a road trip down route 66 for like 2 weeks with my family.

So there you go not that you all cared!!

Another busy weekend!

Bradley worked some crazy hours last week so Friday he got home at like 10am. (He had to be there at 4am.) He was so tired so he ate a little bit then straight to bed around 11. After I got Logan to lay down around 1. I crawled in bed. I am so sleepy all the time. I couldn't hardly keep my eyes open. We slept until about 3. Then when we got up we felt like junk! He was still really out of it so I took the boys and we went and ate at Long Horn with mom dad Brandy and Wilkins. It was good as usual. Then we all ran in Michael's then to moms. We have started on fall clothes and they are so cute.

So Saturday mom LeAnne and I worked. So Bradley had the boys all day and of course you can not walk thru my house. LOL. As soon as I got home I ran to Marshall's and Belks then to moms to sew again. Lucas was with me and decided he wanted to stay with dad. Bradley met his mom and dad with Logan. Well Logan decided to stay with Papaw. As usual!

Sunday Bradley and I headed to Hytop. Revival started and it was really good. They had a good crowd but it wasn't too bad. I got a seat. We stayed for the singing then went to my aunt and uncles house to visit. Then back to church last night. Last night was awesome. Jasmine Gaught received the HG at 6:05 sitting in her chair. It was awesome. I have never seen anything like it! Us Smyrna people were beside our self. So mom Leanne and I are heading back tonight.

Hope everyone has a good week!

What a week!

It has been one more crazy week! It started out good. I have been taking the kids swimming. Bradley even went with us a couple times. It started Tuesday morning on my way to work. First of all I was stuck in traffic and what normally takes me about 20 minutes to get to Nashville ended up taking me a hour and 45 minutes. I was already totally late and it was raining. While I am sitting there in the pouring rain my wiper pops off and I have no windshield wiper. I wasn't very happy. I don't know how or why it just did. So I got out in the rain and popped it back on there. I was pretty stressed by the time I actually got there. After work Bradley and I took the kids to the pool. It was a nice afternoon we stopped and got pizza on the way home.

So Wednesday started off ok. I had Wilkins and things were ok. So when mom and Leanne got off work we headed to the pool again. Sometime while we were there my phone crashed. It comes on I can see everything but none of my buttons work. After we leave there we ran to Longhorn to eat. Because Bradley was working a shut down and wasn't going to be home until about 10 or 11pm. After we leave Longhorn mom wants to run to the bank. As we are pulling away from the drive thru in a very busy parking lot. We get hit by a lady driving way too fast on her cell phone. But technically it was my fault cause she had the right away. There was another van parked by where I was turning and I couldn't see if anything was coming so I eased up so that I could see and WAM! She plowed right into me! If I hadn't have honked my horn she would have never saw me and it would have been a lot worse. She at least tried to slow down for a second. So my car is messed up mom and I are trying to pull the bumper off my car cause it is barely hanging on. And mom gashed her arm open. Mom had to drive home cause I was nervous! I was bad but I feel better today. I am really sore and my back hurts but as far as I know everything else is ok.

Today I had to work again. So after work I ran picked up the kids appliqued a outfit. Took them home gave them baths and fed them some dinner. After that I took off to the fabric store. I know it is still early for yall but we are starting on fall and winter. I am so excited we have tons of new designs and fabrics I will post pictures later!

OH my couponing this week was great! Kroger it rang up 70.91 and I spent 26.89 ( I was really excited) and Publix I spent 53.05 and saved 47.41. Not as good at Publix but I bought all my meet there and I have no coupons for that. I hate to buy meat now. LOL OH well have a nice weekend I guess I will spend mine at Hytop!

LeAnne, Tyree, Scott and Aunt Lora shredding the barbecue!

Well we had a pretty exciting weekend! If you read my blog from Friday you saw we had some big news. So Friday night was pretty much spent on the phone and I had a house full of little boys. Saturday I had to get up at like 6 am to run take the boys back to Nana's and go pick up the cake before we had to leave at 8am to go to Granddaddy's birthday party at Cloudland Canyon Park on Lookout Mountain. We had him a surprise 75th birthday party. So of course we were like 15 minutes late because we didn't leave until 8:30 and then we had to stop and get breakfast. We are never on time it seems like. I can't even imagine what it is going to be like after the new baby gets here. We probably wont make it anywhere. LOL.

We had a good time Saturday! Bradley and Michael took Lucas, Bryson and Will down in the canyon. They saw a snake and that was the highlight of Lucas' day. Then when they got back Bradley Michael and Scott decided they wanted to try out Frisbee Golf. So they all went and bought Frisbee's and apparently none of them were very good at it. LOL. They had fun and we just sat around and laughed and talked all day. We got to see some family we usually don't see unless someone dies. Got to see some old family friends. It was just a good day.

Then Sunday we got up went to church, then to Cracker Barrel with Bradley's dad and nephews. After that we had a baptising to attend. By the time we got home it was already 4:15. I was going to lay down for 15 minutes and rest cause I was so tired. Bradley decided he would call and check on his dad. He hasn't been doing good at all this weekend. Well his nephew Noah wanted to go to church and Papaw wasn't going so he offered to go get him for church. So I had to get up and leave 30 minutes earlier than normal so there went my 15 minute nap. I didn't mind to go get him it was the taking him home after church that I wasn't fond of. I knew what would happen. We would go in sit down Nana would want to fix us something to eat. We would sit around for a little bit and before you know it. It would be 10:00. And that is just what happened. LOL! After we finally got home we sat on the couch and I clipped coupons while Bradley Lucas and Logan played their guitars and drums while they sang. I was so tired as soon as m head hit the pillow I was out.

Now next weekend is the start of Hytop's revival and Brother Pat is helping in it. So we will be there next weekend and probably most of the week. So I am going to get up and get my house put back together then maybe run to the grocery store in a little bit.

Hope everyone has a GREAT Week!!

Baby #3!!!

Yes you read it correctly! I am expecting baby #3!!! I am only 5 weeks along and it will be due March 16th! I am super excited and Bradley was until I actually told him for sure I was pregnant. Now he is in panic mode! He can't really help it he gets it from his mom! This normal for him. Both the boys have been planned and he is all for it until I actually get pregnant then he worries and worries until it is born when its healthy and we can pay all our bills. LOL You just got to know Bradley! But yes it was planned. I am like fertile mertile here! In May I missed my period and thought I could be pregnant then. We weren't trying and we kind of got caught of guard but after I tool like 4 tests we determined I wasn't. SO a little relieved I went thru the whole month until June when I had a normal period. We decided we might want another baby. So it was kind of like whatever happens happens kind of thing. Well it happened and we will have a new baby in March! So I wish yall a good weekend!

Right now I am home with 2 extra boys! Cameron and Cody are spending the night! Wish me luck!! 5 boys and me! Oh lord!

Miss thang relaxin!!

We had a great 4th of July weekend. Saturday mom, LeAnne, Lucas and I all went couponing and that took most of the day. Sunday we got up and I took the boys to moms to go swimming then mom LeAnne and I went to work. I know that sounds like fun right! That night we met Patty and Billmon in Murfreesboro for our annual 4th of July get together. Sat around talked ate some grilled hot dogs. The kids ran and played. We decided we wanted Popsicles so Bradley and Billmon ran over to Kroger and grabbed some. We just relaxed the kids did sparklers. Which I have to say made me totally nervous the whole time. My wild kids were just chasing me with them. It was fun! Then the fireworks started. I tell you Murfreesboro fireworks this year was awesome. They lasted forever and they were huge. It was really fun. My kids loved them!!! And we did too. Then of course it took us like a hour to get out of there. It was worth it!!

Then Monday...We all slept until like 9 got up at some breakfast. Then we headed to Nana and Papaws to go swimming. It was just me Bradley Lucas and Logan. It was so nice and relaxing. Edna had to work and Carter had went to Alabama. It was really alot of fun! The kids had fun and so did Bradley and I. We don't get to do that much just us four. Lucas loves the pool. He swims under water more than he does above water. And until last week Logan would scream even getting near it. But he loves it now. He just lays in his float. So I guess that is about it. We are still trying to recover from revival we are so tired! I am trying to go to Higdon this week. I was actually going to go this morning but we just didn't make. Now I am shooting for Thurday night! Have a good Wednesday!

It is over and it's kind of sad! Revival that is. Friday of revival always seems kind of sad. You kind of get attached to who ever is running it and it is over. We enjoyed the week so much. It always fun seeing old friends and just the blessings that are given. We literally did not have one dud of a service. They were all really good! A girl from Griffin got it Tuesday night which was so good. I have never saw anyone do like her. She started laughing and couldn't even stand up. She was so HAPPY! And then there was Logan Coffey. He put it off all week and played hard to get. But when he finally made up his mind Friday night it was so wonderful!! He just smiles and that is big for him. He was such a sour puss before! LOL... Oh in case you don't know that is our preachers son. So our church is over joyed! I honestly love revival. It is a lot of work and my kids are miserable tired but I just love it. I am so tired I can not hardly stand myself and I will probably be doing laundry for the rest of my life. But it was so worth it. I am only hoping we don't end revival like we started it. With a death! We have so many that are just barely hanging in there. They are pitiful! Oh well I just wanted to say hey and tell everyone how well our revival went.

Oh and the funk that I was in is gone! Thank you lord. He wonderfully blessed me Thursday and gave me a NEW mind! Thank you Lord!!
