Front yard after the first round of "attacks."
Sky looking good huh?
Back yard on our deck. I could have shoveled it afterwards.
Of course this weekend was Easter and we had a great time with our families.
Starting on Good Friday, Mia and I went to the local Knights of Columbus to pick up some fried fish and sides, at Hubby's request. It brought back great memories of my childhood and the fish fries we would have at our church. I may or may not have picked up a few desserts on the way out the door. Those ladies know how to bake! Once we got home, we had a little fried fish dinner on the deck before the storms came in:
So big, she ate dinner on her patio chair instead of her high chair (small tear). My favorite flower this time of year. I like to keep fresh flowers in the house when I can. It makes me feel good.
The goods from the Easter Bunny:Sunday morning Mia did this: And I made these: Brunch with my fam:
Lovin' on her Aunt Shanny!
Time with Hubby's fam:
Mia and Graysen with Aunt Lou!
How fun is this and what a great room cousin Avery has!
All the kids (how cute are they) and look at Mia and Justin! She loves him!!
Who wouldn't be excited about getting a ton of presents on Christmas, oh wait, excuse me, I mean Easter.
Egg hunt time. Mia's first year of "real" participation!
Momma, I found an egg!!!!!!!!!
So excited! Can't you tell!
Hope you had a great Easter weekend as well!Happy Thursday!

I captured the 20/20 segment last night and I'm just enamored by all that is with this event. The story behind their romance, how she didn't put up with his shenanigans during their dating and how after breaking up and getting back together three times they are now to be married one week from Friday. It's cute. I like it. The modern fairy tale. The story of the commoner marrying a prince(and let's use this term of commoner very loosely here people, she didn't come from the slums of England, her family is wealthy and she went to the same college as William). She is wearing the same ring as his mother and I love that. They're adorable together and appear to truly be in love, but what do I know it may just be their accent throwing me off and making me think they are truly meant for each other. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to the spectacle and the 1,004 programs that will be on between now and then that will cover the same information and tell the same story. Many of them that I am sure will make it to my DVR. I've been lucky enough to visit London, England and all that is royal. For my college graduation gift, my parents and I vacationed to all the sites including Buckingham Palace and Westminister Abbey. Maybe that makes it more exciting for me. I stood next to one of the guards at the palace and was tempted to do a little dance and try to make him make a face or let out a giggle, but I didn't. I didn't want to embarass my parents. There is so much history. As I grow older, I have a much more profound respect for our history and everyone elses. It's incredible to learn.
I was a bit young to remember Charles and Diana's wedding, however I do very much remember her funeral. I was in college and we were out of town for a volleyball tournament. All of the girls huddled into one room in our hotel as we watched the celebration of such a phenomenal woman. Such a sad ending to her legacy, but I will be forever attached to her story and her giving spirit. If you do not get goosebumps when you hear Elton John sing "Candle In The Wind," you are not human.Where as I eat this stuff up, my husband, on the other hand, could care less. The only comment he made last night was "they'll be divorced in 10 years." Bah hum bug hubby! So for me, this is exciting and I'm looking forward to watching. Now let me make this very clear, I will not be getting up at 4:00 am. That's crazy town, but I will be watching. What about you? All images courtesy of Google

I really wanted a pair after I saw this movie. See, I have always been a fan of cowboy boots and as a "youngster" I'm not sure I knew red was an option before this movie. I would often rock my more traditional cowboy boots (aka brown) during our dance extravaganzas in our basement with my PJ top and Smurfette underwear. Dad would put on the record, set up the video camera and my sisters, friends and I would go to town...a lot in thanks to you. I would also like to thank you for your shirt at the "Town Hall Meeting:"Reverend Shaw Moore, you scared me. Every time I watched this movie, I thought you were so mean and your poor daughter was just trying to be a "normal" high school kid and not the preacher's daughter. The scene at the diner where she had the radio blaring on the hood of Chuck's truck and you came and shut if off...I.thought.I.was.going.to.die. Speaking of Chuck, Chuck Cranston, you were a d*&k and don't you know you aren't supposed to hit girls? Willard Hewitt, I mostly love you for your name, but also enjoyed your quirky ways throughout the movie, the blank stares and facial expressions were priceless! One of the best scenes in the entire movie is when Ren tries to teach you how to dance. It.was.awesome. Sarah Jessica Parker (Rusty)...who would ever think you would become this 15 years later:
Are you a fan of Footloose? What are some of your favorite moments? Characters? What is your staple childhood movie favorite?I need to fit a viewing of this into my near future. But in the meantime, Let's Dance... All Images provided by Google.
