I Got Tickets!!!!

Ahhhh! I got tickets and I am going to the Britney Spears concert in March. My best friend Ashley is going w/me so I am SUPER EXCITED! I know, I know....I am 2? years old and entirely too old to still have this ridiculous obsession, but hey I'm not ashamed. I was so excited about my purchase and so I called my Dad to share the good news; this is how the conversation went...

Me-"Dad!, guess where Ash and I are going?"
Me-"A BRITNEY SPEARS CONCERT!!!!!!! In New Orleans! Isn't that so fun?"
Dad-"Why?" "Are you really going to see that crazy girl?"
Me-"Ugh...Dad, why aren't you excited w/me?"
Dad-"I dunno, maybe because she's wierd."

Anywho, I can't wait and Ash is just as pumped as I am. Who knows, our seats are probably so far away she will probably look like a little speck. Maybe not. I'll be practicing my moves until then. :)

She's Back...I hope!

Ok, so I have a confession to make.

I have remained a Britney fan all this time. I was really pulling for her and hoping for a "come back". I think this may be it and I am out of control EXCITED!!!!! I watched her documentary, missed her appearance on Good Morning America (but found it on the internet, so I'm ok), and now I'm on a mission to get tickets to her concert. She announced her tour and is supposed to be in New Orleans on March 3rd. I HAVE GOT to get tickets to this and I started a major diet today. I don't know, I may need to go in costume or something. If anyone wants to go w/me just let me know:) BUT, you can't be embarrassed by my actions! I saw her mom and sister a long time ago in Destin at Brusters Icecream one night and started crying, (psycho, I know). I better start learning the dances so I am fully prepared by March. I attached her "Circus" video so if anyone wants to start practicing too, they can be my back-up dancers! (It may not play correctly, not sure I knew how to attach it)

Choo Choo!

The cutest 3 year old I know celebrated his birthday with a train theme. He is into Thomas the train, etc. I made his birthday cake and let me tell you, that thing was a disaster from start to finish. Don't get me wrong, I would do it again in a heartbeat esp. for this little guy, but my oh my. By the time I had delivered the cake, I had sworn to myself I would never bake again.

1st, after I had iced the cake, I decided to taste a little of the left over icing. Sooooo glad I did, bc for some unknown reason (and I mean this has never happened) it tasted like burnt rubber or at least what I would imagine that to taste like. So I scraped all the icing completely off and made a new batch of icing. This time I tasted before I put it on the cake. It was just as bad as the 1st batch. I threw it out and by this time I had gotten rid of 4 lbs. of icing. It was pretty late so I opted not to go to Walmart until the next day. I set my alarm (it's Saturday) and head out at 7 am. I Buy all new ingredients, new bowls, and a new mixer just in case bc/at this point I still have no idea what went wrong. This time the icing was good. I ice the cake, destroy my kitchen, and deliver the cake just in time for the party. But on the way, the train engine and cars start to slide down the cake leaving smudges where they should have been. I always bring emergency icing w/me, but do you think I did this time. I was so embarrassed. Anyway, everyone said the loved the cake and the little guy didn't even notice. I went straight home w/a headache and went back to bed. I mean...what in the world? The turkey cookies are the only things I have made since.

P.S.-I tried to edit the pictures (ha) to hide the smudges if you are wondering what the random lines are on the pic.

This post is so old, but still significant so I wanted to add it anyway. Our dear friends Bo and Prentiss got married in Corinth and we were honored to attend. The entire weekend's festivities were a lot of fun and the decorations were gorgeous as was the bride. This is the only picture I have and that is only bc/someone else took it. We can't wait to see the cute couple during the holidays!

Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas! & Happy birthday Jesus and Happy Birthday Gere!

We have been doing a lot of decorating around here!

Gere's birthday is on Christmas day, so he really gets into the holiday spirit. I have become a lil obsessed myself. These pictures are still a work in progress and the picture of my "topsy-turvy" tree is from last year. I am going to fix it differently this year, so I will have to update when we get everything up and running. I was trying to move that thing last year (after it was already decorated) and bc/it is so top heavy, the whole thing fell on top of my back and pinned me to the floor. Gere was at the library (surprise, surprise) and Drake just kept running circles around me under the tree. I was fine and surprisingly none of the ornaments were broken when I got it back up. My dad ended up wiring it to the wall, so no one else was injured by my Christmas tree.
