Nights like tonight make me think back to my Teenage Years

Coming home from my parents house tonight made me remember back to when my girlfriends and I would sit on the tailgail of my dad's pick-up, out next to the street and wait for the boys (and friends) to drive by, remember that Daneila? I loved when the evenings lasted longer and it still wasn't dark at 8:00. We could sit out there for hours and talk with friends. Great times!!! The air just has a different smell this time of year. It also makes me think of when we would go to the drive-in on Monday nights, down the street from my house. (remember those days Teresa?) Wish I could still get into the jeans I wore back then! LOL

To all you Mothers out there!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Well, I'm busy cleaning house to have the family over tomorrow for Mother's Day.
Nothing too exciting, My sister and her family are coming as well as my Mom and Dad. I'll be baking and my sister's husband will be bringing a smoked brisket! YUM! We just want to have a restful day before my dad starts treatment next week.
My backyard is full of Hummingbirds so we're going to just sit back and watch them for a while. I pray it doesn't rain, we've had so much lately.

I'm thankful I still have my mother to celebrate with and even more grateful for my wonderful son for making me a very lucky Mom.

So, to all the Mothers out there, I wish you a blessed, safe, and peaceful Mother's Day!

Oh my Gosh!!! All I've done is Eat!!!!

On top of everything else, it has rained all day and is scheduled to rain all day tomorrow. We've gotten over 5" so far. The Cowboy's training camp got hit by a tornado (they think) and collapsed the entire structure with 27 rookies, 4 coaches and a file crew inside, 5 people were injured. It was all caught on film. Scary!!!!

The farmer's market was a bust so we went out for breakfast instead. My friends Kristy and Dennis and their son Ketcher joined us. To my surprise, Dennis' sister, Christine met us. It was so nice to see her again. She is 18 weeks pregnant and came with new pictures of their baby girl. She's going to make a wonderful mother! At last...I have a girl to shop for!

After a big breakfast at Coopies, I went home for a little R and R. Couple of hours later I joined my son and a his friend Amber and her parents for a meal at a cafeteria. Yeah! Someone finally wanted to eat like a blue hair!! lol Couldn't wait to get home for a little more R and R. LOL husband just got back from the store and brought me a pint of ice cream. As soon as I finish this, I'm going to bed...this new diet I'm on is wearing me out and I wonder way I'm not losing any weight!!! The sad part is the dog will have me up all night because she's afraid of bad weather! Staying up all night always makes me gain weight!!! haha

Not a big Weekend Planned Now...
Thanks to the Swine Flu! I was planning to go to the Fort Worth Mayfest this weekend and the city canceled it. (bummer) All those pour people that had to pull up stakes and load all their stuff back up. Tons of good food gone to waste. That's so sad. It looks like rain again anyway. Just got back from Home Depot were we got a few flowers and some veggies to plant. I heard on the movie Steal Magnolias, that's what old people are suppose to do...grow tomatoes and stuff.
I went out to lunch today with a good friend and we had such a lovely time. This is her picture but she's wearing a wig for Halloween. She's a cutie, I could never pull this look off but it looks great on her! Thank's Kristy for spending time with me today...I need that. Had some good girl talk and went to a scrapbook store and bought a few things. Felt good to get out with a friend!
We stopped in a little store called "The Twisted Pepper" I like to buy spices from them. It's sad but they will be closing this month and I got a chance to talk to the owner today. *snif * I'll miss her shop however, she's opening a farmer's market tomorrow in the same little downtown square...I'm so excited so.... that will become my new weekend activity. I know what your thinking right now...boy! I'm sure jealous of her life, she really knows how live to the fullest!!! LOL
Well...everybody have a great weekend !! TTFN
