Wednesday Randomness

Well, I am so glad that Wednesday is here. I must say that I am ready for the weekend to be here!! Next week is fall break at the schools, and since my work follows the school calendar (except the summers off thing) then that means I get a whole week off! I feel like I am going to be playing catch-up on a lot of things, like cleaning my house really well, and putting away things that are out of place! I might try to relax a little, if I get a chance!! Hopefully there will be a little bit of home-improvement later in the week that may or may not include paint!! :)

As far as finishing this week, I have lots of loose ends to tie up at work! Then a few things to do in the beginning of week for work! But I am SO glad it is Wednesday and the weekend is coming into view!! Have a great hump day!

Just one of those days...

Have you ever had one of those days when you woke up, you could only hope the day got better instead of having the morning be an omen for the outcome of your day? Well, today is one of those days.

Oh well, at least it is Thursday and tomorrow starts the weekend! That is a good thing right?!

Hope you all have a happy Thursday and a wonderful weekend if I don't pop in before then...for now I am going to go perk up my day by looking at People of Walmart!

Some favorites...

So, I only have a few minutes, but I wanted to stop in and tell you guys about a couple of great finds that have made their way into my life and won't be leaving anytime soon!!

Well, I had the day off on Monday so I used the time to run some errands and do some much needed house cleaning. Well, in Sunday's paper, there was a coupon for Soft Scrub's new "total" line. I was going to clean the bathroom so I decided I would use the coupon and get it to try. We have some mineral in our water that makes a line in the toilet, shower, sink or wherever water sits at anytime. And there is NOTHING that will clean it. That is until NOW....this stuff is absolutely amazing and wonderful! I LOVE it! I can't wait to get the kitchen kind and try it! I know, you all are laughing at me for getting all excited about a cleaning produce (my husband made fun of me too) but I have been trying forever to find something that will take away the "watermark" and I have finally found it and it is a great day!! My life will never be the same!!

Secondly, I splurged and bought the Nook from Barnes and Noble. I have been looking at them for some time now but I was really just questioning whether it was really practical or not. Then, Emory and I had to buy a new bookshelf to put in the spare room to hold all of my books that were all over the place, and I figured it would be practical in order to eliminate the stacking of book from floor to ceiling. And I must say it has been amazing so far in the two days that I have had it. It is great! And I am loving it!

Well, those are my new finds that I just had to share! If any of you try the Soft Scrub total stuff, let me know if it was just as amazing for you as it was for me! (By the way, I was not paid to endorse either of these two products, they are just that awesome that I needed to share!) Have a happy Wednesday!!

Place in this world...

I know it is Friday and I should be really excited that Alabama is playing tomorrow and talking about them beating Duke..BUT I am not going to. I have some other news...

This morning I was getting ready to leave and Emory opens the door and I hear him get kind of startled and mention that I need to "Come look at this!" So, I go and look and there on our driveway, maybe three feet from our front door is this HUGE alligator snapping turtle thing. It was not what you would expect to see in a quiet neighborhood in Alabama on an almost fall day. I mean it was the weirdest thing ever. It was a good thing that Scout and Max didn't come bounding out the door like they usually do! This thing was fierce!! It really scared me a little. I mean, not enough that I didn't go grab the cell phone to get close enough for a picture, but enough that it kinda gave me the chills. It was gross and big! See:

Anyway, so we chased it away to the yard and were keeping our fingers crossed that it didn't crawl under the fence and get in our back yard where the pups would be sure to find it! It crawled away back to the small trench that is next to our house. Hopefully he is gone to live in the sewer with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Maybe they can help him out. He certainly isn't welcome at my house! If he stayed around much longer, he would have become turtle soup!!

Well, happy Friday! I hope you don't have any crazy experiences this weekend! Keep your eyes and ears open you never know what you will discover in your own driveway!

Oh, and ROLL TIDE!

Wordless Wednesday (kinda)

So, as expected, the boys' collars came in yesterday and I must say that they are SO cute!! Max's is still just a tad big, but he can wear it and it will be no time until he grows intoo it nicely!!

Happy Wednesday! Half-way through the week!!

As usual...

Things have been pretty hectic around here! Although things are starting to settle into more of a routine! We are now into football season, which is going well for my Tide! Which means a happy Becky! Max is doing ok. He is a rambunctious little one! He is growing leaps and bounds!! We are still working on training everyday!! He is getting a lot better, but he is so headstrong, I feel like it may be a little more difficult than it was with Scout! But he is SO much fun! He and Scout are getting along so great! They play all the time! It is so cute!

So, since I have mentioned football season and the dogs, can I tell you how excited I am about my new purchase (which should be here today when I get there)...
I ordered 2 of these:

If you know anything about Alabama, you know that houndstooth is one of our things, so I thought this would be a great way for our little furry family memebers to participate in football season! It may be a little big for Max right now, but I am sure it won't take him long to grow into it!! They came from Crate and Barrel who now have pet accessories!! Hope you all have a fantastic week! Hopefully I won't be a stranger!

Looking back and fall and football and a funny

So, I had no clever post for today, hence the absolutely random title. Maybe it will grab someone's attention, probably not, but oh well. At least YOU are here!! So, I was reading on someone's blog about the new "stats" button that is at the top of the blogger dashboard page and I clicked on it. It was all very interesting. But, the most interesting part is the number one google search that brings people to my page is "Toomer's Corner". WTH?? I mean, this girl is a BAMA GIRL all the way. Orange and Blue, Auburn and anything that has to do with it are just awful to me! I mean, I won't even eat an orange and blue m&m at the same time! Because I HATE AUBURN. I graduated from The University of Alabama and it is burned into my brain! That is just how it is! Well, that is SO funny that is what brings people here and it is all because of THIS POST that I wrote in August of last year. Ya'll it is FUNNY!! You have GOT to go read it. You will laugh and laugh and laugh, and if you are having a week like me, a little laugh will go a LONG way. It honestly has just a little to do about Auburn and Toomer's corner but more about poop and toilet paper. GO READ IT!!!

On another note, I am SO glad that fall is here! That means the weather is changing, the time is changing and I am ecstatic! Also, with fall comes FOOTBALL!! I can't get enough of football when the season is here. It helps to root for the reigning NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! I am really looking forward to this season! Roll Tide!

Well, since this post is random and now over, you need to go make yourself laugh! You won't be disappointed I promise!

Back Again!!

I feel like I apologize for my absence way too much lately!! Things have just been a little more than hectic around here lately! We have officially had the puppy, now named Max for a whole week (plus some)!! He is sleeping through the night, he is bell trained to go outside and potty, he can sit, lay, come and heel! All in a week! I must say we have worked with him NON-STOP, but it has been so worth it! He has learned to get up on the furniture, which is ok with us. But it is so cute! When he gets much bigger, he won't be able to sit up there with me! HA! Last night was the first night that Emory and I got to sit down and watch tv and we didn't even sit next to each other like we normally do! Why? Well, because Scout and Max were fighting with sitting in the chair with Mommy and ended up with BOTH of them laying on top of me and each other! Needless to say, there was no room for Emory! One day, they will each be sitting on their own couch and then maybe E and I can sit together again!! Ha! He is doing really well, and is actually giving Scout lots of confidence! It has been really great! Well, that is my quick little update on me and the boys!! I will be back soon with a better one!!
