Steve and I took a last minute trip to Nashville this weekend. We visited The Country Music Hall of Fame and took a tour of Studio B - it was great! I am a huge fan of Country Music. You could literally spend all day at this place. Totally cool!
The time Steve and I had together was sweet!

Yesterday I went into a local furniture store looking for an entertainment center for our living room. (This is to be an anniversary gift for both of us - we received a "bonus" check in the mail and decided to buy one).
I was innocently walking around and what in front of my wandering eyes should appear? A girl scout cookie display! Someone was selling them for her daughter. I was so excited at the thought of another box of thin mints....I go to buy them....and guess what...NO THIN MINTS.
Really, what kind of furniture store is that place?!
(I did find the entertainment center though and provided laughter to everyone there with my protests about the thin mints!)

That is what I told a friend of my daughter, we call her "Mo."
Why did I tell her to turn in her woman card?
She told me....gasp.....I'm still in shock....that she doesn't like...(hurts me now just to type it)

Last night a girl I graduated with was killed in a car accident. We sat beside each other during Senior English. I used to admire her long nails. We were in other classes and clubs together - she was always smiling. She was married to her high school sweetheart.
As I was cleaning Sam's room this morning, I couldn't help but think of her kids - one of them in the same grade at the same school as Sam. I know how my kids would feel. It is hard as an adult to lose a parent - I cannot imagine what it is like as a child.
Please pray for her family.

Flippers the flying...jumping fish...
With Christmas money, Sam bought himself a Beta Fish. He named him Flippers. We were cleaning out Flippers bowl this morning...we put him in a temporary cup for the cleaning...he jumped out of it. Sam rescued it. Whew.
China...the bring me breakfast in bed dog....
China, our dog is old - but still gets around. However, she is taking advantage of her senior years and our sympathy. She will now eat only if we bring her food to her in bed. Oh brother. (She still walks, does an occasional running lap around the yard, etc...so she could walk to the food bowl, she just chooses not too) Like I said, oh, brother. (We do love her!)

Tori and her friend, Peyton, won first place in a presentation/speech contest on Thursday. Their first time ever competing! They are going to state! I am a very proud mom! We all are excited.
We had strange weather this week..one day it was 72 degrees - the next - well, you will see in the pictures below.
A contrast in seasons in our back yard.....
We received about a foot of snow in our neighborhood when it was all said and done. That is a lot for this area!
