the weekend

December 14, 2007

i am so excited about this weekend. it’s the first one in a long time when we haven’t had something to do or somewhere to be. it’s going to be so, so nice.

tomorrow, we’ll go to my church and then relax. tomorrow night we’ll make an appearance at a co-worker’s christmas party, and then we’re going to see the mist. i am so excited about that. honestly, we haven’t seen a movie since the spring. we’ve just been so busy we didn’t have time, which sucked because there were so many movies that came out this summer that we wanted to see. at least now they’re all coming out on dvd.

on sunday, we’re going to bagelicious for breakfast (yum!) and then to fresh market to use a gift card dave’s parents gave us for hannukah. fresh market is one of the things i miss about living in chattanooga. it is one of my favorite stores. then, we’re going to hit the mall so i can use some discount cards i got in the mail at bath and body works, and exchange a shirt at old navy for the softest.slippers.ever. i think that’s what i’m the most excited about!

then, joe’s parents are stopping by sometime sunday afternoon to visit on their way home from the cabin. that and the survivor finale are the only other things we have planned.

i am definitely ready for the weekend to start.

i am a big fan of the bachelor. i’ll admit it, though i know i will be mocked. i especially love the last show where the bachelor picks the girl he wants to be with for the rest of his life, which usually amounts to a couple of months.

so last night i was all ready for my happy, feel good moment. it never came. he didn’t pick either girl. granted, he realized it’s ridiculous to think you can fall in love with someone after a month or two of group dating, but dammit i wanted my happy moment!

ok. i’m done now.

on driving

November 12, 2007

joe and i love the amazing race. it’s one of the few reality shows i watch that he really enjoys. this season, as with last, there is a team of ditzy blonde girls. i ended up liking last year’s blondes, but this year’s team just seems pathetically dumb. here are some quotes from last night:

on the amazing race:
“clearly i haven’t had a facial or a manicure, but it’s even tougher than you can even imagine.”

on driving:
“well, my brights aren’t staying on, so i have to hold them with one hand for the entire way — unless i’m just an idiot?”

i have nothing to say to that.

branson

September 11, 2007

have you all ever seen those visit branson commercials? i used to see them all the time on tv, and i’d wonder, “why would anyone want to go to branson, missouri?” that was the only place i’d ever heard of the town. i haven’t seen those commercials in a while, but when assigned this subject, i checked out the branson getaways site. there’s a lot to do in branson! they have a bunch of museums, water parks and outdoor activities, such as a scenic railway and bungee jumping. i love museums and water parks. they also have eight malls. EIGHT. now, that is my kind of vacation spot! i will go anywhere there is shopping! they also have some pretty reasonably priced packages that include several nights of lodging, tickets to shows, etc. it’s kind of interesting to see some of the things offered in this town i’ve heard so much about in commercials.

husband/father of the year

August 23, 2007

from wifeswap involving a diva family and a redneck family.

diva mom: so do you ever take your wife out for dinner?
redneck dad: yea, but no where fancy. i take her to the truck stop.

diva mom: your kids break the law!
redneck dad: yea, i’m hoping they’ll grow out of that.
