It's a crazy thing to imagine being married 35 Years, but my parents have beat the odds, and the statistics, and done it! They have actually been "together" since Jr. High...anyone that can "go steady" that long and still make it all these years is one for the record books. Of course my dad was and is SO COOL, and my mom was and is A BABE, so I guess it was meant to be!
I absolutely adore my parents and I am SOOOOO appreciative for everything they do for me, even though I'm a parent now and often think that I don't need them. I am grateful for the example they have been to me and for their constant support in whatever venture I set out to do!

No my dad is not in Pink...it's Salmon!

What A HOOT!

There is a boy in our neighborhood: BOB (name has been changed to protect the innocent). And Natalie and McKenna have had this "crush" on him since we moved in. Well, he was outside playing football on our street (only because there is NO traffic) and the girls started freaking out that he was outside. There was a lot of running around and opening the front door to holler things to this poor kid. When they thought they were sly and asked if they could go outside to ride bikes. I said NO. When they asked if they could go out into the front yard to play. I said NO. And when they asked if they could go out just to say Hi to Bob. Again, I said NO.
Now this might sound like I'm a little mean, and maybe I am...but then again they are only 7 AND Bob is a 7 year old boy who cannot possibly want two giggly girls mooning over him in front of his big brother and friends. I did have to laugh though because they were so funny about Bob being "right outside" and they even got McKenna's 3 year old sister London peeking out the window with them. I had to capture the moment by taking a picture of them as they were spying on Bob. I can only imagine these two in about 6 or 7 years when it's the teenage boys mowing the lawns that get them all giggly...I think I can wait for those days!


That's everyday according to my children!

Yes today is Brandon's Birthday and although he never looks at this blog, I thought I'd wish him a Happy Birthday anyway.
So what kind of gift do you get for the guy who buys and sells for a living? Good question...
Luckily, about a week ago Brandon mentioned that he needed a new pair of golf shoes. SWEET! No guessing at what I was going to buy. AND if I do say so myself I did a really good job in picking out some nice ones for him!

He'll be the hottest guy on the course...but that goes without saying!

Brandon is amazing, and he works really hard for our family...I know most of you think he is just this shy, quiet guy (OK, so he is) but you'd be amazed at how funny he is, and how willing he is to put up with me and all of my crazy antics (that's saying a lot). Anyway I feel pretty darn lucky to have him in my life, and I also feel pretty lucky that he's 32 and I'm not!
