Busy Day


Today has been a crazy day. My friends daughter is in Duke right now with a tumor growing out of her brain. She will have surgery first thing tomorrow morning and I would love it if you all had Corbin in your thoughts and prayers. She has been in mine all day and I know she is in great care at Duke. I dont know much about the tumor all I know is that it is growing from the inside of her brain. It is touching the major part of a nerve in the brain. Hopefully he can remove it tomorrow without jarring or damaging the nerve, but we will have to wait to see. I will keep everyone updated as time goes on.

It was my Aunt Helens 90th birthday today, so Happy Birthday to her. We had a nice time at her party and it was great to see everyone at a happy occasion.
I hope everyone has a nice Labor Day. Drive careful. Please dont forget to put Corbin in your prayers. Thank you!

McCain / Palin 08'

I don't normally put political things on the website. I am so excited this year about the campaigns. I was SHOCKED today when I found out it was Sarah Palin I honestly thought for sure that he was going to take Liberman, hahahahaha Hey why not? hahahaha anyways.. Well Lorraine.. Are you going to vote for McCain now because Hillary is out of it.. He has Sarah, who I have to say seems to be a ball buster. And shes a memeber of the NRA, enough said! hahahahaha Oh how I wish my daddy were here to comment on this!

This is James Otto. We are going to go and see him we think Saturday night at some bar in Kernersville.. YEEHAAWWW.. Do I look appropriate?

What you think...???Ya'll know I am going to see the Yankees in September. DOnt you think this would be great as I sit there 4th row behind Yankee Dugout?

It has been raining here like a cow pissing on a flat rock. Holy Moly. Tornado's, are touching down, roofs are caving in because of too much rain. We need it don't get me wrong, but geez we could use 6 inches in 4 days not 6 inches an hour. Alrighty well I'm going to go into the garage and make sure that Blake's floats are hole free in case I need to use them to get me to work tomorrow! By the way, the sugar cookie recipe is not Lorraine's, it was a friend of hers.

Sugar cookies

I made some god awful sugar cookies today. They tasted to me like baked flour. It was terrible. BEWARE of the Lorraine Petrini SUGAR COOKIE recipe. Go and ask her for it. She thinks they are wonderful. Me I think the woman didn't want to give up her recipe so she sabotaged it by making it 2 cups of flour and 4 tbs of sugar?

It as 2 cups of flour
4tbs of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8tsp salt
2 sticks of margarine
Bake at 375' 15 to 20 min.

I called and was like are you sure it is only 4tbs of sugar.... hahahah Well hopefully she typed it wrong, if not and it is that recipe, I WANT to be reimbursed for the loss of the margarine and the flour.

My alphabet tag letter is "F"

My Letter is "F" . I was going to be "Funny" and put something "Fabulous" ,but I opped to do the "Fall" thing and do "FOOTBALL"!!!!! We have to go to our very own Carolina Panthers because our "Favorite" team the NEW YORK GIANTS ( you know the super bowl CHAMPIONS) are kinda "Far" away. but anyhoo.... come on "Football" season.... "Fall" is near...... This picture was taken on December 16th. It was Blakes birthday and we went to a "Football" game. We had a blast that day!!

Here is a fun challenge that Katie started called 26 Things. The idea is to take one picture for each letter of the alphabet through a game of blog-tag.

Here are the rules/directions:

1. If you are tagged, you are responsible for taking 1 picture of an item that begins with your letter. Be creative! Anything goes.

2. Post the picture on your blog.

3. Tag someone new with the next letter of the alphabet.

4. Since there are 26 letters, someone may be tagged multiple times. That is perfectly fine, but try to spread the love if you can.

5. If someone doesn't want to play, they should pass. Tag someone else in their place.

Now I guess I have to pick someone and since all my friends are Lorraines friends, I pick.... Sarah If you get a chance... you should really go on her site just to look at it. This woman takes the best photos that I have ever seen. I so want to get rid of my mannual and get a digital just for this reason. She has a great eye and I think next year I am going to try her 365 days of pictures.. Sarah Have fun with the letter "G" . I know you will have no problem finding a pic for this letter!!

Good Bye Beach

We are leaving this wonderful creation by God tomorrow!!! I hate to leave. It has been a beautiful week. It has been nice. I got some much needed time in the sun. I spent alot of it in the shade. I don't remember the sun being this intense when I was little. Times have changed I guess.. I go home tomorrow and see my man, then I leave on Friday to go to West by God Virginia. I'm going to go to the State Fair. Seeing Blake Shelton Saturday night and I'm all aglow for him to notice.. hahahahah I think our seats are a little too far away for that but nonetheless Kenny boy will notice! Blake would have loved it here. I loved it here. Ahhhhhhhh I just plain love the beach.

Our Views...

Just some pics that I took this morning. We went out yesterday and got nice and brown. Today I flip over. I haven't been in the water for fear sharks will be after me. I think by tomorrow I will get in and actually go swimming. I may try today but you know the last thing I want to be is somebody else's groceries.

I had a very very strange dream last night. If you want to know what it was email me and Ill tell you. It didn't bother me until I asked my mother if she cried last night and she said she did.. NO IM FREAKING out.. ahahahahah Oh well... I don't know if it was a combo of my book that I am reading or what it was.... alright you must email me now because I know that you are intrigued!

The sound of the beach calms me. I got here at the beach last night and Im here to tell you, if the North thing doesnt work out I seriously would love to move to the beach. I have been saying it for years and Ill probably say it for more years to come. I want to live at the beach. I think the perfect life for a 20 something yr old person is from Memorial Day to Labor Day you live at the beach. From October to Easter you live in Colorado. Perfect Life right there. THings I would do different if I could go back and take what I know now. But If that happens I may have never met a no footed man, and well that would suck!
