My wonderful Les took The Mr. and I to one of those Japanese restaurants { ummmm for my early Birthday Dinner....boo for my birthday... I'm older.Yay.}where they cook in front of you! Yay! Second one in a month! My second time ever!

So also invited our very good friends here that I had no idea "J" had a hidden talent for catching flying shrimp....and! An appetite for tentacles! oh.my.gosh...the picture "A" took was great though!

So we had Mr. Jerry stand up and I guess he always wanted to be a cook or something..he was not so good. he broke the eggs.both of them.he was shortly released from this job.

See! Tentacles! But she seemed to like them :)

{ Kelly Loves to go "Bye-Bye!" she goes crazy when you say them words!!}

Yesterday, for Memorial Day....which was a very "BRIGHT" idea for both the Mr. and I...decided to go to the coast...it was a beautiful day..however the traffic coming back..was a disaster! I see why people get road rage...people are really idiot drivers..really! They are!
Well, now we remembered on the way back why we don't go anywhere ON holidays..crazy idea.
Next time.We will stay close to home.

We had a very nice time @ the Oregon coast. It was soooo nice out!

Our dog "Kelly", really enjoyed herself.She ran and ran and chased the waves and tried to catch them! She never did.
But she had fun trying! :) I hope everyone had a very nice Memorial Day. :)

Happy Memorial Day. Bless our troops. Those who have served. Is serving. And those brave solders whom lost their ever so precious lives to do what they believe in. God bless each and every one of our hero's. These solders could not have done what they've done, unless they have/ have had/has a support system....family. I've learned that the family is a solider too. Just a different type. Happy Memorial Day.

.5.25.09.. "Time..."

Yesterday was a day of....nothing.
My Best Buddy "Les" hung out with us for the weekend...and it was relaxing. Maybe once or twice ran into town for something..but other than that.nothing.
Sometimes you just gotta do this.

Anyhow, I'll start making phone calls and start getting things in-line for our big move.
I look around the house and think...ugh......gotta take it all down? Just to put it back up again?
Well, Today will be another day of just getting quotes and info.
Then let the headache{s} BEGIN!!! dum-ta-duuuuuummmmm!

Let's just say we need to be out and on the road to Arkansas no later than June 22...um..crap.that is is fast. I feel like the room is spinning.

Today here in AR, The Mr. got off work a lil' early and we went and scout the areas for homes...
B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l HOMES!!! MY LAND!!!

But After we went and picked up the famous Miss Netti and continued our adventure..in home hunting. Then we all met up @ the flippin' cutest bar and grill you've ever seen! The place is called "Jason's", with the best lil' waitresses, and the craw fish{mudbugs} were amazing!

The bar and grill was tuned into American Idol and when the results came on...the whole place went quiet and all waitress stopped and stood under the TV. It was great! I had more fun watching their reaction! I actually took pics of them while the results were read!
But it was a HUGE night here in AR for Kris Allen fans! Congrats Kris!
But on a lil' side note.....while I was drinking beer and eating mud bugs..the owner of the bar brought over their local and famous veterinarian { like my boss is , in our hometown} and introduced me to him and first thing…

Well, my wonderful husband and I have made our decision.
Arkansas will be our new home.
It hit me this morning.
The Mr. left for work and I'm sitting in the room, getting our day planned...then the thought came across my mind.
My sweet pea Mom..I started crying and couldn't stop! My Mom and I are best friends! She's my buddy. MY MOM! I love her so much and the thought of being away from her is tearing me apart.


I can always count on her- to be silly with me, and can talk her into anything!! Ha! Ha! Like putting a god-awful hat on and take pics with me.

She's always taught me valuable lessons in life: * Always act like a lady. *Mind your manners. *Never know when company is coming over..always have your house presentable. *Having an animal is a privilege. Take care of it. *Treat people as you would like to be treated...{*Mom, this doesn't always work...but, I will continue with this advice..} *Never loan out:Your car,money,horse, or your husband {really! She always told me thi…

So we got in for a loooong flight....tired and hungry.
Ate at the this cute lil' place.."Cracker Barrel". The Mr. loves this place! When he came home from his trip from Ar last, he promised to take me here..

Well, the caption on the pix says it all!! Had a lil' get together with just a couple of my friends that also happen to be co-workers! It was so nice to see and talk to everyone out of the "work setting". They even trusted ME to wax them!...i guess they didn't see my blog..he! he! But the Big Boss even stopped by and said Hi and even grabbed food to go! But ALOT of singing went on and I was shocked on WHO had the talent! Lil' Miss Kris! You go girl!

.5.16.09..."Hello? Anybody Home?"

Okay the reason for this post is that..I realize I have a HUGE problem.
ZERO tolerance level for stupid people!Zero.zilch.nada.
But here's the problem.
I show it.
I'm so irritated with them, that it makes me cringe, thinking about them...you know- they are a species, right? THEY are their OWN SPECIES!!! Stupid people and stupid people SHOULD NOT BREED!!!!! It should be against the law, or something! It should be a "taboo" or something, to get it across to people. But yeah your right...they are stupid.
I work in a field that these poor, helpless, defenseless animals DEPEND ON THIS SPECIES to take care of them. Scary thought, huh?
I admit...I do stupid, silly things. But hello? I admit it..and blog about it..duh...
The reason I bring this up, is that I ran into 3 different breeds of these things at work...I work with one of my very good friends and she shakes her laughing at me and asks why can't I be nice to this breed? I told her.."NO. I can't. I treat stupid p…

.5.14.09.."Wax On?..Wax Off!!"

Image
Okay..this is for the "Yettie the Betti's" out there in them parts!!!! Okay....no secret. Majority of women wax.yes. This painful, ridiculous procedure is a very popular thing? Why? You must ask? Well, because....as I told the lady behind the counter as I went searching for this torture device.."I'm heading to an area where I don't want to be mixed up with a "Betti the Yettie" or a "she-Big Foot" ...as my poor husband slaps his head with palm of his hand.Yes, once again embarrassed.by me.his weird wife. So I get home with this torture device and I plugged it in.for hours.and hours.read the manual..oh say about 90 times. over and over. hoping at one point it would be like a Harry Potter movie and the words would mysteriously change to "Don't do it!! Your an idiot! AHHH" Well, nothing. So, after about 4 hours of being plugged in..the Mr. comes and finds me and says " Umm Baby..I think your wax is ready" I say with my han…

It turned out to be a great day for my Mr!!
He received this in the mail yesterday, along with another "coin"....he was so happy and beamed with pride as he looked at his flag.
For his time and tour in Iraq, he was sent this flag with his name on it.
I'm soooo proud of him and so happy he made it home safe!

NOt only did I luck out with a wonderful man they raised..but I get the whole darn package..right now- picture me smiling, ear to ear, with eyes closed, and big teeth showing....got it?
But we had a real nice visit and just sat around and ate. and we ate.
I love the time I get a chance to spend with them and the whole family! :)
They {whom ever 'they' is....} should make a "Happy Family Day" no gifts. Just family getting together.So who do I contact, for such a request, to have this a holiday? Who is in charge? Do they have a "holiday' coordinator?
I need a name and number.
I need to make an appointment.

.5.8.09."The Deadliest Catch"

Image
YEAH!!! For Captain Phil!
I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting a reality show-celebrity!!
Have you ever watched the reality show " The Deadliest Catch"? Well, I just happened to start watching this and getting into it, then one of the Mr's co-workers let us know that Captain Phil was coming to our town..eekkkk!!!
So we headed downtown after work one night, this last week and got to meet him!! We help tear things down and set up for him and before the flood gates were open and people came in, I went and jumped on my chance to get my pic with him.
He acts and reminds me of my brother Rick..his mannerism and everything...ya know, I felt bad for walking up to him and bugging him though... I even apologized for bugging him..I feel bad for celebrities. I was watching him and people just flocked to him and wouldn't leave him alone...
His son was there also and just nice everyday people. Gosh! They work hard!! Hats off to them!!
