1000 MILES!

I hit my first 1000 miles in my new Ford Fusion coming home from taking Matthew and Zak to a ballgame today. We were on near the Moore Cove Bridge in the Pisgah National Forest. I stopped to take a picture and the boys, of course, thought I was crazy. I wonder if I can keep up with where I am every 1000 miles? Hey it's worth a shot.

The Newest Bull - What is he wearing?

I know you're not all Bulls fans, but you have to love this picture of a NCAA Champion (2007 & 2006) in this ridiculously funny tuxedo - and that hair, oh my! Maybe someone in Chicago can direct him to a good barber!

Whew! What A Day!

So today (really yesterday) was staff meeting day and the first thing we did was hear that Steve Brown, one of two guys in classified, was no longer with us and they needed someone to cover his accounts. Guess who? Well, I didn't take them all, Heather took some, Nate took a couple, and I think Meg took some, then I got a bucket load. It was definitely one of my busier days. Oh, and did I mention that I am also filling in for Hillary this week while she is away in Honduras on a mission trip.

Anyway, today I got to test the waters in the classified world of TONS of REALTORS and realty ads. Lynelle has been trying to convince me to sell real estate but instead I am selling to real estate (brokers.) It was fun to be busy again! I am hoping they will decide to move me over to the classified side for good, just hoping that if they do, I don't end up working every Tuesday night until 11:30! So I guess I better go to bed - got to be back in 7 hours! Nite!

Happy for the rain!

Even though they come with big booms and lightening strikes, it was nice to finally have some rain showers this afternoon! I think we could use for it to rain a few days in a row.

For the summer, we got a free subscription to Blockbuster by Mail so we have been watching a lot of movies over the last week. Some of the good ones have been Holiday with Kate Winslet and Jack Black and the one we watched last night, The Guardian with Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. Frank's dad recommended Monsters, the Disney cartoon, so I am adding that to my list. If you have any suggestions, old or new, let us know.

Well, I am off now to watch the cooking show. Have a good evening.

Am I A Softy of What?

Even the animated movies are making me cry these days! We just finished watching this great movie. I loved it. In the past couple of weeks we have seen Cars, Flushed Away, Open Season and Madagascar (my favorite so far, I think). It is just amazing what they can do with animation these days!

My First Game of Canasta

Me N Matter at the Tourists

Jordan took this pic of me and Matthew after the Tourists game on Sunday. I played "Daddy" to Matthew, Nick, & Jordan, whose dads all had to work! The Tourists won 12-2 and it was hot as could be. We had 4th row box seats but ending up sitting on the last row under the shade for 5 innings!

Good Morning!

Here's a couple of pages I did over the weekend - the one with Frank and Harmony was for a "new beginnings" contest and the one of Luke was to use the "Graffiti" Kit I received as one of my prizes for being Digital Design Guest at

Happy Father's Day

My Dad & Me

Another layout in honor of Father's Day - this one for my dad. I love these pictures of me and Daddy. I think if you look long enough at the one of Daddy in the sailor's uniform you can see a lot of Matthew. Happy Father's Day, Daddy, I love you!

Like Father, Like Son

A page for my scrapbooking site and for Frank & Art for Father's Day. Frank has to work, the boys are going to be here tonight for a late dinner which I hope Frank gets home early enough to enjoy - fried catfish, hush puppies, and cole slaw. Tomorrow I am taking Matthew, Nick, Zak Beard and Jordan Bell to see the Asheville Tourists - guess you could say I am playing, "Dad" since all of their dads will be working for Father's Day.

Me with My New Car

Me with my new car! Amanda took this last night with my cell phone so it's not the best picture and it definitely doesn't capture all the giggling happiness that has taken place since they handed me the keys on Thursday night! It's a Ford Fusion and I got it at John Johnson Ford in Brevard.
It was kind of researched and kind of on a whim. I just found out last week that the a/c in the van was broken and going to require $900-$1300 to repair ... that was in addition to the $500 I spent to have it repaired last summer. NOT.GOING.TO.HAPPEN! I refused to put any more into that piece of @#*%!!!! So when the skies opened up and I couldn't take anymore pictures at JJF, I told them why not try to sell me a car. So they did and this is my prize! I love it. I love it. I love it. It drives so smooth and it will save me on the gas every week! It should get about 10-13 mpg more than the Kia. That's a lot of money these days. And the A/C works great! I will get better pictures soon.

A Visit from Kentucky

Me 2007

Here's a digital layout I did about some things I like: Charleston, of course; fresh pineapple (photo taken in Jamaica); azaleas (taken in Atlanta); waterfalls (these are Whitewater on the North/South Carolina border near Toxaway); and scuba diving (or at least taking pictures underwater.)

The photo was taken out of the picture below at Amy's graduation.

Home of the Red, White & uh ... More Red?

Looks like everyone was thinking "red" tonight - 'cept me and Matter. I cropped the photo so you couldn't how out of place the two us looked with his black shorts and my blue skirt!

My Graduate - Tomorrow is the BIG DAY!

Here's a layout I did with all of Amy's different poses in her Senior Portrait pack. I can't believe that she is actually graduating TOMORROW! Wow, didn't we just do this yesterday? Oh, no, that was Amanda and it was LAST year! Gees - guess that is one of the downfalls of having your girls 11 months apart! Amy is so excited. Today she didn't have to be there until 9 and she should be out by one and tomorrow they will practice a bit and be done again until the moment to walk across the stage! Papaw Mel and Uncle Neal are heading down from Kentucky so that made her happy and Amanda has planned a dinner at Carrabas following graduation. After she eats and gets all her congrats and hugs, she'll be off to the Project Graduation at Fun Depot for a whole night of fun and games! I'm sure you know they'll be plenty more pictures to look at by Saturday! I am thinking of going all digital so I don't have to wait for developing and I can see what I get.
