"We just live our life & move on"

Says the 11 yr. old, McKenzie. She lives next door to me & Amelia-Ann  lives next door on the other side. They came to bring us banana nut bread. You may remember that McKenzie made the best king cake I've ever had. She loves to bake & is really, really good at it. We sat & talked for awhile. They filled me in on everything going on at school & on the bus & what their plans are this week being that it's spring break. Amelia-Ann knows all so she keeps me updated on the goings on of Church, the neighborhood & school. I really enjoy their visits. Amelia-Ann also goes to bat for me with Dean for what I've now dubbed "The Great Puppy Debate". I want a puppy, Dean doesn't. Amelia-Ann wants a puppy, her parents don't. It would be in her best interest for me to get one. At one point awhile back she even told him she'd give him $200 to go towards the puppy. Once he explained to her that money isn't the issue she changed tactics. Tonight she told him she'd pick up the poo 4 days a week.

Today was such a pretty day! I went to 7:00 Mass & then came home & enjoyed a nap. I needed a nap because I didn't go to sleep until midnight last night because I got sucked into the greatness that is "Steel Magnolia's". Love, love, love that movie!! Not long after I got up Dean made it home from his fishing trip. I did some picking up around the house  & we ate lunch (fried fish & french fries, yum). I did our weekly grocery shopping & then went for a walk. I'm not sure how far I walked. I'm going to drive it & see. I know it was over 2 miles so I think that's good. I think I may need new shoes though. HAHAHAHA!! Anyone who knows me is laughing! Any excuse to buy new shoes!! Seriously, this morning when I got up my back was hurting a little & then while I was walking my feet were starting to hurt & I never used to have that problem. I didn't carry Logan around a lot yesterday so we can't blame him. I think it's the shoes so I cut my walk a little short. I've got to get some good music too.  I was using the Pandora app on my iPhone & about every second song is one I don't like. I've downloaded a few songs but I'm having a problem getting music from my laptop to my phone. I don't know what the deal is. I'm really confused because the music I  have on my laptop was stuff that I bought on my phone & then when I synced  the phone & laptop, all the music went to the laptop & is no longer on the phone. I've spent a good while, like 45 mins., on the iPhone website trying to figure it out & still nothing. That's a big deal for me. I'm the type of person that buys something new & just starts using it & figures it out as I go. Generally, this leads to me only using a few of the options available. I hate reading directions.  Technology is just not my thing. I guess I'll ask someone.

Towards the end of my walk I stopped at my friend Veronica's. I hadn't seen them in awhile & they were home which is a miracle in itself because she has 4 kids! One of them always has somewhere to be. Veronica's little girl, Abigail, is our Godchild. I hung out with them for a little while. Here's the little princess! Her twin brother Gavin wasn't interested in taking pictures. Come to think of it, neither was Abby. That's why this picture looks like it does. Oh Well!!

So, Dean was telling me about the fishing trip & he said that yesterday afternoon they watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days". SERIOUSLY??? I LOVE that movie. Like it's probably my favorite. It has Kate Hudson & McConaughey. I love them both & want them to get married. HOWEVER, I find it very odd that 4 men are at a fishing camp & that's what they chose to watch. How funny is that??




  1. I love Steel Magnolias!! :)

    We didn't get to watch the LSU/TN baseball game this weekend because of the weather. They moved Sunday's game to Saturday and we missed it.... :( Bran was so upset!

  2. The hubs and I totally watched that this weekend too. And he wasn't hating it. Ah ha ha

  3. Hey Traci, Just checking in to see what you're up to. I say BUY THE SHOES!
