Ok so my question is...Do I stay with darker hair and maybe add in some random streaks of some color OR do I take the plunge and go blonde again??? Leave me a comment or email me with your answer!!!
Today was a busy day! Aric and I went shopping with my mom today in Mobile. It was fun spending time with her but I was not impressed with the shopping. I bought a cute top and a pretty yellow necklace but that's about it. Aric was being a pain. I do not know why he behaves like that when he is around Nana. Actually I do...He thinks I can not punish him when Nana is around. Well think again buddy. He is not a happy camper right now! So nananananananana booboo buddy! I AM STILL THE MOM!!!! SO THERE....
Sorry I am back to reality now!
Ok leave me comments people!!! I have a hair appointment tomorrow afternoon and I need to know what to tell her!!!!

Friday night we went to Target and bought new outside furniture! That was a surprise since we went in there to get the roof top cargo bag for my truck (which we did not get). I am LOVING my new furniture! It is black iron and it is already distressed so I don't have to do it! We bought four chairs and a long coffee table. Gorgeous! I am not to fond of the cushions that came with them but I can always buy new. I am waiting on my trip to IKEA for that! Anyway then we went to eat at Applebees. Aric wanted to eat at Lamberts soooo bad but there was at least 50 people ahead of us waiting to get in. So we settled for Applebees. I was not that impressed with my dinner but it was ok. Then we came home and put together our furniture!
Saturday was the BEST day! Aric went to James' house to spend the day! Josh and I took total advantage of that and we took the motorcycle to Pensacola. We shopped ALL day! Bought some awesome new clothes and had an awesome ride! Pictures at the end of the post, I promise! It was just so great to spend time with my husband, ALONE! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE when Aric is with us but sometimes we need some time to ourselves. We stopped on the way home and rented some movies. We made it home just in time! About 30 min. later it started STORMING!!! It was the most gorgeous lightning storm I have seen in sooooo long. We went outside and watched the lightning and the rain for awhile. Then we snuggled on the couch and watched some movies.
Sunday was also a good day! We had some general errands to run...WalMart of course! I bought some more needed items for our vacation. We had lunch at Taco Bell per Aric's request. LOL....We went to Best Buy to get something for Josh's laptop and a wall mount for the Flat Screen in our bedroom. Then we went into Ross. We were checking out in there when the torrential rains started! It has not rained that hard in FOREVER. We took off running through the parking lot, getting soaked! My shoe came off when I was running! Dang the ROXY flip flops! I took them off and kept on running. Josh and Aric were dying laughing at me! I had on WHITE capris! Needless to say we had to come home because you could see straight through my pants!
What an exhausting, awesome weekend! I am about to pile up and watch Army Wives. Then it's early to bed. I have to get up early tomorrow. My mom and I are going shopping in Mobile! WOOHOO!!! More new clothes!
P.S. More cloud pics also!!!! Oh and the picture of the bricks...That is an actual street that we ended up on somewhere in Floridia! It was soooo bumpy riding it on the motorcycle! There was this awesome little park back there also that was on the water. Soooo pretty...
More pictures to come!

1. I worry to much about what other people think. I have always been like this and probably always will be. It really pisses Josh off because he has never cared what other people think about him.
2. I NEVER leave the house without makeup on. NEVER! Even if we are going to the beach. My grandmother, Nan, taught me that. You just never know who you might run into!
3. I only like Coke if it is in a can or from Sonic. Better yet, buy a BIG cup of ice from Sonic and pour a can of coke in there. YUM!
4. I have no willpower when it comes to dieting. I try..I really do. It lasts about a week and then I am over it. But I am really working hard this summer. Say a prayer for me!
5. My favorite hamburger is one from McDonalds. Cheap but yummy!
6. I am happiest when I am in my studio. Even of I am not creating..I still like to be in here. It makes me happy.
7. I can read an entire book in one night. Last night I read a 421 page book in 3 hours. That is why I buy books at Thrift Stores now. Do you know how expensive that was getting??? Josh does..Ask him.
8. I do not do well with confrontations. I do not know what to say until it is over and then of course I have about a thousand things to say!
Well there ya go. 8 random things about me that probably noone cares about.
Here are some random pictures from yesterday.
I have no makeup on! HAHA! BUT I was home and I had been cleaning. Notice the ladder? I have to use that to clean the ceiling fan because the ceiling is so high in the living room. Josh also used it to hang some more vintage motorcycle signs. And of course there is another cloud picture. Love to all!

I still have so much left to buy. I am in need of shorts. And for the record, I HATE shorts! I always wear skirts, skorts, summer dresses and capris in the summer time. The only shorts I own are the ones I wear to the gym. But we shall see. I am going to the mall tomorrow to check out American Eagle. They have some cute shorts online. If all else fails, I will just wear my dresses and not ride anything that will flip me upside down! I am leaving you now with a picture of the cutest dog in the world...Brodie! This was taken before his first puppy cut! I never thought that I would love a dog this much!

Ok, enough of the poor poor me routine! Not much has been going on around here activity wise this week. We go swimming everyday and go for walks with Brodie, but that is about it. We are enjoying our rest. The new school year is fast approching! I will leave you with a few of my favorite shots from this week. Oh and I have this new obsession with taking pictures of the sky/clouds.

We went to Pensacola yesterday. Josh wanted to buy lottery tickets and he always buys 3 scratch offs so we each can scratch one off. Well... Josh's ticket ended up winning $50! YAY!! We ate at Whataburger, one of Josh's favorite places to eat, fast food wise. We do not have one where we live so it is a treat to get to eat there. Aric loved it! He even ate all of his French Fries which is rare! We shopped around a little bit and then headed home because the weather was getting bad.
I have lots of other images and infomation to share but I will save those for later posts. Have a great Wednesday everyone! And if you are reading this blog, PLEASE post a comment so I will know that someone is out there!

Summertime is the best! Actually Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons but I have to work then so Summer rates at the top right now. The pictures above are what we do all summer. Go to the pool, eat yummy fresh fruit, and....nothing. We have no set schedule. Ahhhh..Sweet Bliss.
Yesterday, Aric and I went shopping. We have an every other Friday morning date to have breakfast at Cracker Barrel. It is nice to spend that time with him. He always orders the same thing, even though he has to pour over the menu, 2 pancakes with a side of bacon and white milk. He always opens his milk and takes 2 sips and then gives it to me to place on my side of the table so he does not guzzle it all down before his breaksfast arrives. I vary with what I order. We eat and then we shop in the store part for a few minutes. I always buy some Yankee Candle votives or tarts. Every other week this happens. No changes. This makes me happy. I know that every other week I am going to have this time with my child. Will he want to do that with me when he gets older? Probably not, but I can enjoy it while it lasts.

I decided awhile back that I wanted all of my hanging picture frames in the hallway to be black. Thankfully they were just a natural color so it was really easy to paint them black. I have painted a total of 14 frames so far and still have a few left! My hands are covered in paint as are parts of my leg. But the sight makes me happy! It looks sooo good so far. Josh is going to be shocked at all of the things that I accomplished today. Especially when it takes work away from him! Ok...off to finish painting. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

We had alot of fun. Josh, of course, is the pro. Aric had never been bowling and I have only been once. So needless to say, Josh beat us pretty good! Aric came in second (because he had the bumpers up) and I came in last. They are still making fun of me. But bring on the Bowling Wii game and I can kick some tail, thank you very much!
I will be working on some art prjects today. If you have any amazing websites with lots of inspiration, link them here. I love looking at what inspires others. I will leave you today with a shot from my mom's flower bed. I think it is just gorgeous! It inspires me!
