Great Week

This week was a pretty good week. Lots of the work for the LOOM. Wednesday, Brandi and I got a little break/ business pleasure type day. Girls day out at the Gap and Lunch at Mary's Falls Cottage. Then we got our shopping on too! Ended the day with a great meal at PF CHANGS! YUMMY

Thursday was fun. Spent the day homeschooling and just hanging out with my two boys. We had fun and some silly times. I was lucky to get to eat out two meals for Dine out For MOM for the Let there be Mom organization. This organization is amazing. It helps preserve the legacy of a dying family for the family. Lunch time the boys and I hit up Five Guys Burger and Fries and then for dinner I had Atlanta Bread Company with my Bible Study gals. It was great and so was Bible study.

Friday was errand day and I also managed to get a date night with my hubby. The boys spent the night with my parents and we enjoyed a great time. OUr dinner was not so great...but we saw Couples Retreat. FUNNY MOVIE!!!!

Saturday I cleaned house while Tommy worked a bit in the morning and then we were off to see Jessica and Makenzie in Gaffney because she was in NC visiting her parents. It was so good to see them. Makenzie has grown a ton. Got my shopping on at the outlets too. That always makes me happy!

Today was great too. We went to church, lunch, and shopping. Then I ran to the LOOM for the trunk show for the new clothing line from Lilypad. Then we were off to Trunk or Treats. The boys had a blast and then we had dinner with Tammy, Tony, Jordan and Lexi. Great way to end the weekend.

Excited for the upcoming week. Hope everyones weekend was great and that they have a great upcoming week.....

Super Saturday

Today was good. I got my house spicn-n-span! I love the smell of a nice clean house. The boys and I headed out to my nephew Jordan's 16th birthday! Makes me feel so old! After his dinner at O'Charley's we headed back to the mall today to return a shirt I picked up for Eli yesterday at Holister. It had a hole in it. So, we just had some fun hanging out and I also got to pick up some books from that Christian Book store outlet. I LOVE THAT STORE! Then we were off Walmart to pick up a few things

Tommy worked this morning and then went deer hunting tonight. He came home frozen. It is so cold! I hear there is snow in NC! WOW! Well, the boys are out and I am being lazy. Lying in bed just messing around on the computer. Tommy is working tonight at Logan's Roadhouse. He has to repair the floors while the restaurant is closed. So for now. I am going to chill, read some of my new books and wait for him to come in LATER (LITERALLY THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT)

Good night everyone!

Good Day....TGIF

oh, I am so thankful that it is Friday. This week has been busy. The LOOM has been very busy this week. We booked three weddings, plus tons of meetings. THANK GOD! He is SOOO good.

Today has been very good. I was able to release so stress by spending the afternoon shopping. LOL! Shopping always makes stress less! LOL! I spent the afternoon with Bleeze. Tommy took Eli again today to the lake. I think they finally finished the porch! YAY! So, today we went to the mall, Target, and Old Navy. Got great deals everywhere. Especially Dillards and Old Navy!

Tonight I enjoyed dinner at Logan's Roadhouse with my mom. Daddy was with Eli and Tommy! It was yummy! I LOVE their rolls. Tonight Bleeze and I have been just lying in bed chilling! Tommy and Eli just got home from the lake but I am hoping to go to sleep soon and sleep late in the morning! Hope everyone has a great night and weekend!

So far this week has been going well. Both boys seem to be feeling better. I forgot to share in my previous post that Sunday, I was priveledged to play the piano for worship at the nursing home. Our church (Grace Church on Pelham) provides worship every Sunday morning for the residents at the Garden. I have to admit that I was VERY nervous. It has been ages since I played the piano, let alone hymns. They are hard and they make me nervous. Thankfully, the residents really do not mind (and to be honest, most can't hear well enough to know when I make a mistake) I really appreciate Kevin Jones giving my name to Kathy . I felt honored to play for such special people. I was also humbled and grateful to serve my Lord! The residents were precious and it made a new awareness to me of many things. 1. I hope that one day if I am in the nursing home I have someone to come and share Christ with me 2. That there are people of all ages who do not know Christ yet ( I knew that but you just assume that they are old and they are believers, but not all of them are) 3. That I have to share the talents and gifts that God has given me even when I feel intimidated! A huge thanks to all those who make that ministry such a success...Kathy and Tom you rocked on Sunday!

Right now, I am sitting here waiting on Tommy to get home so we can order Chinese. The boys are playing outside. Today is probably the only day they will be able to play outside because it is supposed to rain the rest of the week.

We have been meeting with brides and other potential clients all week. God is sooo good! Enjoyed a yummy lunch at Anita's today with Brandi and her girls and Dean and Cindy! So for now, I am off to do some work, eat some dinner and hope to spend some time with my family. Hope everyone's week is full of awesome!

This week....loong one....

This week has been a long, hard, busy week. We had our Style Swap consignment sale. We did pretty good and have a lot of fun in the process. Thanks to everyone who came out to consign and shop. We also went to the Third Day concert. I am so sorry that Tammy, Tony, and Lexi were sick but we sure did enjoy the concert. My mom even enjoyed it. I hated Tommy couldn't go. He has been so busy the past couple of weeks. I am ready for him to have a break. In fact, he is even working nights at Logan's Steakhouse to redo the floors there. We had a birthday party today at the LOOM. So cute. Princess party. I know all the kiddos had fun! So for now, Well, I am out of here for now. Gotta get some sleep. Gotta get up early in the morning. Meeting with two brides, quick trip to Charlotte and then homeschooling the afternoon away. Hope everyone has a great week!!!

good day....

Today has been a good day. I dropped Eli off at the church for his fusion fall retreat. I have to admit that I was really nervous when I dropped him off. This is the first activity that he has been away for without me, however, he had an awesome time. God love him, he is so precious. We gave him spending money to take and he bought all of us including my parents bandanna's with "Look Up Lodge" on them in all our favorite colors. He did not even buy him a snack because he used all his money on those. SWEET! He loved riding the big swing, zip-line, water slides, and the amazing race game. He was not even upset that his team came in 5th.

After I dropped Eli off, Bleeze and I enjoyed a trip to Target and then we headed to grab lunch at McDonald's and then we drove up to the lake. Tommy and my Dad were putting a porch on our place and it looks good. Tommy is so good at that sorta stuff. LOL! Bleeze, my mom, and myself enjoyed a nice relaxing walk down to the lake so Bleeze could put one toe in...LOL! He kept saying" I just want to put my toe in" He put both feet in. LOL!!!!

Mom, Bleeze and myself headed back, grabbed some dinner at S&S and then we went to get Eli. We are all so tired that the boys have been in bed since 8:30 and I am lying here reading and watching TV. I am ready for my man to get home though. I have missed him the past three weeks. He had been working hard (as always).

I am so excited about Style Swap next week. It is going to be amazing. So for now. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Going to bed... excited about the new study on Joseph we are starting at Grace tomorrow. Hope every one's night is full of awesome.

Holy Cow... I really have been busy.

I cannot believe how long it has been since I did a blog. I used to be so good about blogging everyday and sometimes twice maybe even three times a day. I have to get back into the habit it really helps me keep my thoughts together. I will give a quick run down of what all I've been up to for the past few weeks. Let's see...hum. We had Eli's fusion kick off. Fusion is the middle school group at our church. I can't believe how big he has gotten. He is so excited and he loves thinking of himself being in "student ministry department" and not children's ministry anymore. He loves that he doesn't have to be checked in and out anymore and he does it himself. He is so funny.

Brandi and I also did the Wedding Festival at the Carolina First Center. AWESOME! Brought us lots of brides. It is always worth it! That is one reason I have not blogged. We have been extremely busy. We have had tons of meetings and events. Events including 150 contra dancers (so fun to watch), Hillcrest class of 1984 class reunion, baby showers, Belle Brunch, God is REALLY blessing us!

Last Friday I had a car accident. A lady backed into me three times pulling out of parking space at Dunkin Doughnuts while I was in the drive thru. Scared my Bleeze to death. He cried forever. it really messed my van up bad. I am enjoying the rental though. It is loaded with all the bells and whistles. I am really enjoying the satellite radio. I am going to hate giving it back. LOL! I am just thankful that we are all okay.

We also enjoyed our annual trip to the apple farm. So much fun but this year it was EXTREMELY HOT!!!! Whew.... we had fun though and really enjoyed the yummy apple cidar doughnuts.

Eli got glasses. He had to wear them at first all the time and then in a few weeks he wears them during school, reading, computer, tv, anything upclose. He looks so cute in them. He also got to serve at church last Sunday. The boys in his group stayed after service and help clean the grounds. The dumped trash, etc. They had fun in the process and really enjoyed their pizza lunch.

We had the trip from HELL to the dentist with Bleeze. He had two cavities. One between his two front teeth and one on a molar. He was so brave. He did not even cry during the painful shot between his two front teeth and then they took the happy gas off. Needless to say... he was NOT happy. He cried so pitiful. He did not show out but he cried a ton. They are wanting to put him under to do the other tooth. However, I am not liking that idea and after discussing it with several others in dentistry, we may a see another dentist before we go to those extremes.

I have also been enjoying the new fall ladies Bible study at Grace. Annointed, Transformed and Redeemed. It is amazing (as always) I can't wait for each Thursday night. I also enjoy my Thursday night dinner each week with Brandi at Midtown Deli! That's our Bible Study spot! LOL!

Tomorrow Eli goes to Look Up Lodge for fusion fall retreat. He is so excited. I on the other hand am a nervous wreck. I am having to remember what Bill White said to me a few months ago. I have to just trust that God is with him and that he is doing what God created him to do.

So tomorrow, I will drop Eli off and then I plan to take my sweet Bleeze to the Farmer's Market. We spent the day together today too. It was fun. Strange not having Eli. He went to help build a deck with Tommy and my Dad at the lake today. Bleeze and I enjoyed lunch at Arizonia Steakhouse with Nanny Mary and some shopping. Bleeze even stayed with her at her house and I was able to enjoy some down time and go to Hobby Lobby and Walmart ALONE! That is a mini vacation! LOL! Bleeze and I also enjoyed a trip to the Pet Store. It was so fun! I wanted to get him the French Bulldog...she was a little out of price range though $2000......yikes! This evening we enjoyed a trip to the mall with my mom and then we went to Monterray's for dinner. So yummy!
Okay, so I totally got off my weekend plans there. I plan on cleaning house and then getting more things together for STyle Swap Consignment Sale. It is going to be awesome this season. Hope some of you decide to consign or at least come shop.

I also went back dark with my hair... has some red in it also.

Well, there is a quick update. I am getting ready to CRASH! Hope everything is well with everyone and Happy Weekend.
