Almost Gone..

I didn't think I would be able to post again before I left for England, but I can :) I just thought I would tell ya'll about a new place we discovered to eat at. It's SO yummy! We are in Mobile and there is a NEWK'S EXPRESS CAFE. There's also one in Tuscaloosa :) I had the half salad half sandwich, and chose the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and Simple Salad. I'm sure their Loaded Potato Soup is good too!

I have had a headache today and am praying it gets better for the flight! I've taking tons of medicine and it is starting to go away :) It might be know for the 9-11 hours on the plane!! I have come to realize that London is NOT ready for my family! We are a fun family and might be a little too crazy for London! I should have some HILLARIOUS stories to share! My dad never meets a stranger and is always too funny!

Thanks to Stephanie for featuring me on her blog!!! I am so honored and excited! Especially since it's her FIRST featured Friday! Thanks girl!

Have a FABULOUS 2 weeks everyone! (for real this time)

Weekend Fun and Movie Reviews

Happy Sunday! I am in the middle of packing for my trip to England :) I leave on Monday and won't be blogging while i'm over there, can you blame me? I will be sure to make it up by showing lots and lots of pics when I return :)

Thursday I worked and after work Jereme and I went go see "A-Team". This movie was SO good, it was action packed and very good! Jereme really enjoyed it too!

Friday I worked and got off a little early and tanned, got my eyebrows waxed, and went to eat at a hometown favorite with Mom and Jereme, Difilippo's Italian Restaurant. Mom and I split the Manicotti and had salads, Mom had greek and I had a house salad. Jereme had a "Submarine Sub". After we ate dinner, we came back home and played a round of Phase 10.

When I went to Jereme's house earlier I walked in and he was doing this...

Some of his family was staying the weekend with his family and he found his little cousins coloring book and crayons! His Aunt made these AWESOME cupcakes! She just started decorating cakes and stuff! There's broccoli pasta, fortune cookies, mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken legs, and carrots and peas!

Saturday, I worked most of the day and then met Jereme in town for another date before I left. We ate dinner at McAllister's Deli and then went to a new Yogurt place called California Yogurt Kraze that JUST opened! It was so neat and fun! You pick your ice cream and then load it with toppings...and you get it yourself. Then you weigh it and pay it!

The toppings are on the far left and the yogurt on the far right. Toppings included crush poptarts, fresh fruits, marshmallows, cereals, candies, sour patch kids, jelly beans, nuts, granola, etc. Yogurt flavors included were triple chocolate, birthday cake, pink lemonade, cheesecake, etc!

I had a picture of me and my yogurt but I accidently deleted it :( Mom, Dad, and I might go tonight after packing!

After yogurt we went to see "Knight and Day" with Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise. It was good too!

Have a FABULOUS 2 weeks blogger friends!

Thursday Fun Day!

I have the day off today :) That makes me happy!

I had a lunch date with a friend from high school today, we went and ate at Red Elephant and we both made our own pizza. Yummy! After great conversation and food, I needed to run some errands around town. I dropped off a prescription at CVS, went to TJMaxx, Old Navy, and Barnes and Noble.

At TJMaxx I bought the following:
*2 cookbooks for $2.99 each

I couldn't find a pic of the other book, but let me tell you..there are tons of things I am going to be baking (and sharing recipes with you :) Some of the recipes include, Chocolate Truffles, Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Brownies, Buttermilk Cookies, Candied Orange Peels, Coffee and Walnut Cake, Double Chocolate Brownies, and Chocolate and Vanilla Marble Cake.

*I also bought this super cute magnet board! I haven't decided whether or not to keep it or give it as a gift! It's black and White damask fabric with a lime green bow, and it came with lots of magnets!

Next, I went to OLD NAVY to get some pajama pants for my trip. Well...everything in the store is 30% off right now, so I couldn't leave the cute baby blue ruffle top behind :)
*I went to Barnes and Noble to get a new book I have wanted. I am going to wait and read it on the long plane ride over the pond :)
While I walking to the check-out, I noticed a lot of books for under $9.97. Good thing I stopped because I found this one for $5.97! And I'm a B&N Member, so I get an extra 10% :)
I just LOVE Sophie Kinsella and am super excited to read these two books! Now I am on my way to get my eyebrows waxed and to go with Momma to go pick up her MOG (Mother of Groom) dress from alterations. Jereme and I have a hot date tonight too :)
Have a FABULOUS evening!

Beach Trip!

Jereme and I went to Destin, FL for the day this past Friday to enjoy some shopping and just enjoy a day off :) We went to the outlets first. They just opened a Juicy Couture outlet so I was anxious to see that, didn't find anything that I just HAD to have though :( maybe another time.

Saks 5th Avenue had some really good sales going on, as did all the other stores because of Father's Day weekend. I bought the following at Coach for my trip to England :)

Jereme bought this Coach turtle keychain for me :)
How cute is this dress? Sorry its so small.
Jereme bought some Polo shirts and some running shorts while we were there. After shopping for awhile, we started to get an appetite so we decided to eat at Hard Rock Cafe'.

Jereme ordered the Legendary Burger.

Legendary 10 oz. Burger
Famous the world over: topped with seasoned bacon, two slices of Cheddar cheese, a crisp fried onion ring, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

I ordered the Honey-Mustard Grilled Chicken Sandwich (SO YUMMY!)

Honey-Mustard Grilled Chicken Sandwich
A grilled boneless chicken breast served on a butter-toasted bun with honey mustard, bacon, lettuce, tomato and Jack cheese. Served with seasoned fries and fresh coleslaw.

After a delicious lunch, we strolled through and did some shopping in an outdoor mall with some specialty stores. They had a Yankee Candle store and I just HAD to get Momma a surprise! There was a Tropical Smoothie there and Friday was FLIP-FLOP Day! If you wore your flip-flops then you recieved a FREE Banana-Strawberry Smoothie :) Lucky us..we both had on flip-flops!

*Jereme did NOT have 2 smoothies, he was holding both of ours :)

Gotta' love a self taken car photo!

As we were leaving Destin and heading home we just so happened to see this. I won't say anything. The picture says it all. Sad, sad. The oil is almost in Panama City, hour and and 15 minutes away from me, the beach I usually go to.

Saturday night Jereme and I went to see the following movie and it was hillarious!

Father's Day 2010

Happy Father's Day Dad!

My dad is away on business alot of the time, usually days at a time. He was able to be home for Father's Day this year! After reading the Sunday paper, Dad and I went out to eat lunch. We were going to go to a bbq place, but it was PACKED! Dad decided he wanted to go to his FAVORITE place of all time...Waffle House. I usually don't like going there because I hate to smell like smoke, but this was his day and they do have AWESOME waffles! We arrived and it wasn't smoky at all :)

Dad enjoyed this.....

I enjoyed this.....
After eating lunch, we had to make a Walmart run. We got some groceries and some goodies, and Dad got 2 things for Chloe Elizabeth! Chloe loved her new giraffe squeaky toy and rawhide bone :) Some of the things I got at Wal-Mart are:

I just love these BabyBel cheeses. They are perfect for when you need a little pick me up!

This is the rawhide Dad got Chloe and let me tell you, she LOVES it! I highly recommend this. Chloe is a little picky on her rawhides, she only likes pig and bacon stuff, and this one is bacon and is small for little doggies :)

These NEW Pretzel M&M's are so good!!! Exactly like a mini chocolate covered pretzel :)

I also got this awesome thing for my car..who would've's a mesh back support. Sounds kinda crazy, but it's to help keep your back cool while driving and as a support. With BLACK leather seats and 103 degree weather, it's awesome :) Here's a pic. Hopefully it's not TOO tacky ;)

Happy Father's Day! Check back for pics of the beach shopping trip I took with Jereme and my goodies I bought :)

Weekend Plans

I am so excited to have off on Friday! Thanks Amie! Guess where I am going to spend the day?? At the beach! I am going to Destin, FL with Jereme to do some shopping :) They have added a new Juicy Couture outlet..that might be a bad thing :) I can't wait, hopefully it won't rain because all the shopping is located at outside malls. Saturday I work, we got some new t-shirts and shoes in at work today...SO CUTE!!

*Hopefully I will be able to find a dress for the rehearsal dinner in like 2 weeks!

Check back for pictures :)

Guess where I will be in 14 Days?

London, England!!!!!

I am SO excited!!! I am going to start packing later this week, just to make sure I don't forget anything :) Of course the main reason we are going is because my brother is getting married!!! Lots of sightseeing and shopping will take place as well :)

Have any of ya'll been to England? Anything you think we should do or see? Any restaurants or stores you recommend? Any tips on what I should bring on my carry-on for the LONG flight and layovers?

*My camera adaptor that Mom ordered came in today, YIPPEE! Now I can upload some pics from the weekend :)



I just love blog awards! My favorite awards are those that come from people that I've never met before but read about their daily lives through their blogs and feel as if I've known them for years.

Thanks Andrea from Life In Dawleywood for the Simply Southern Blog Award!!

The Rules:
1. Copy and paste the award image onto your blog or website.
2. Answer the question "In your opinion, what makes a person a true southerner?"
3. Bestow the award upon a favorite southern blog!

I believe a true Southerner is one who is considerate, kind, and goes out of their way to give someone a compliment. A true Southerner always has a smile on their face and their head held high in all situations! Southerners say 'coke', not 'pop' and 'ya'll', not 'you all' or 'everyone'.

Here's a favorite quote of mine about The South.

"The South is a place where the tea is sweet and accents are sweeter, summer starts in April, macaroni and cheese is a vegtable, front porches are wide and words are long, pecan pie is a staple, "ya'll" is the only proper noun, chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy, everything is darlin', and someone's heart is always being blessed."

One of my favorite southern blogs is a woman who I love and is truly a SOUTHERN GIRL! She deserves this award more than anyone I know! I know her personally and can honestly tell you, she is very southern and proud of it! Cora at Heartfelt and Homemade :)


Thanks Ashley at Miss Ashley in Mississippi for the "I love your blog" award!!

The rules for this award are to list 10 things I love and to pass it on to 10 other blogs. Here goes!

1. God

2.My family and spending lots of time with them

3.My friends

4. My job and the wonderful people I've met while working there

5. Shopping for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING!

6. Dessert foods, anything sweet! Cookies, cupcakes, icing, you get the picture :)

7. Making lists and checking things off

8. The beach

9. Traveling and taking road trips

10. Jewelry :)

I pass this award to anyone who follows my blog that would like this award, because I honestly love everyone's blogs that I follow. Each person has different interests, whether its about life, food, shopping, movies, or vacations. Each blog is unique and that is what I love :)

Have a fabulous day ya'll!

New Layout!

Do you like my new layout? Thanks to Templates By Tenille for the free template! You should check out the templates that she has to offer! What do you think?

Lost Camera Cord/Stick

Guess what happened when I woke up this morning and went to my computer to upload some pics of the week...I couldn't find my camera stick that goes into the computer. I have the memory stick but not the adaptor thing...and I have no clue where my cord is :( Ooops! I have a few pictures taken from my phone to give you a sneak peak of what has been happening this week so far :)

Monday I had the day off and took Chloe to get groomed. Look at her WONDERFUL "Pawgress Report"!
I also went to Burlington Coat Factory...I'm not a huge fan of this store, because it's kind of sloppy and messy, but that's probably just the store location I go to. I did however find a pair of earrings for $5.99 and a pair of cute summer sandals for $12.99 in MY SIZE!!! I was surprised at the fact they had many 5's and 5 1/2's.

"Sadie" needed a good cleaning as well, so I took her throught the carwash :) Now she's all sparkly and shiny. When I drove aorund to the vaccuum and extra cleaning spot, I found 2 handsome boys helping their dad clean his volvo.. It was Amie's KIDS and husband! Trent and Dylan helped clean the front of my car while I vacuumed!
Hopefully more pictures will come soon and I can find my memory stick adaptor or cord!
