A Real Quick One

Today, out of the clear blue, Landon says to me, " Mommy, God is a good guesser."
And I say, "Well, how so?"
Landon answers, " Because when he guessed that you could be my mommy, he was right. You're the best mommy for me!"
I was so taken aback. Such innocence, but so wise....It was a priceless moment.

Who I am

I love my family.
I love trying different lotions.
I love clothes, shoes...I REALLY love them
I love the smell of vanilla and sugar cookies.
I also love the smell of a mans ball cap, the smell of a man....
I smell my hubby's shirts in the dirty laundry pile because I like the worn off scent of his cologne.
I believe I am married to the man I was destined to be with.
I love my hubby's dimple.
I love that my sons both inherited that dimple.
I love getting pedicures and massages.
I am as girly as can be but have no shame and will talk about anything and everything.
I love Bud Light Lime and Sister Creek Vineyards Muscat Canelli.
I Love sauerkraut and mustard.
I Love working out and feeling that tired sense of accomplishment in my muscles.
I Love going out to eat and trying different food.
I am not picky!
I love to read, one of my first passions.... I have put that on the back burner since having my children.
My children are my true passion.
I am a better person now that I am a mother.
I feel a kinship with other mothers that I know they feel too.
I love anything paranormal.
I love LOST!
As a child, I had a huge crush on Patrick Swayze.
I love book stores.
I am becoming obsessed with coffee.
I have a soft spot for children, old people and dogs.
My relationship with God is tangible when I look into the eyes of my children. If I can love them that much, think of how abundant His love is for us?
Chocolate ...also one of my passions.
I have a temper that sneaks up on me and explodes.
I cry when angry...which really sux!
I will never be a morning person. NEVER!
I would love to visit an old plantation home or anything historical and possibly haunted.
One time, on the way home from a trip to A&M, my friend and I stopped at every historical marker because I made her.
I secretly think I have psychic abilities.
I would love to go on a tornado chase.
Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are the 2 creepiest movies ever!

We survived a weekend in close quarters!!!

Well, we went to the beach a couple of weeks ago with my whole family. We stayed in a 3 bedroom beach house. By "we", I mean, my mom and dad, my older sister and her family of 4 , my brood and my lil sister and her boyfriend.

Needless to say, it was a bit cramped but it was so nice to spend the night in close quarters with my family. I haven't spent the night under the same roof as my sisters since I got married!! It was a blast from the past to be able to sit up late and talk with my sisters. We had some rather interesting conversations? Didn't we, Brooke? ;-)

Anyways, the beach was prettier than I had seen a TX beach in years! No seaweed! Woo-hoo! We visited the Corpus Christi State Aquarium and that was so much fun. We got to pet stingrays, get splashed by dolphins and see an underwater show. Landon and Luke were very entertained . I have patiently been waiting for my sister, Brooke, to send me the pics from the aquarium..its been 3 weeks, I have given up. But I do have pics from the beach and the beach house of the boys and their cousin, Ashtyn aka Miss Thang.
