In the early morning hours...

It's 12:18 in the A.M. and I am sitting on my red sofa, watching House, listening to the howling of the wind, and hoping Jeff will be done with load out soon so we can chat for a little bit before crashing. He has been on the road since March 18th. It has not been easy these past 2 weeks not having him home and I am more than excited about seeing him on Monday night! I miss his face!

Tonight was a little crazy here in Franklin, TN. We had tornado sirens going off most of the evening and for some reason when that happens everyone in the area comes to outback. Weather it is dining out or take out we get crazy busy. People ask if I think they are crazy to be out when there are tornadoes in the area and of course my answer is YES. However, I think people like to be around other people when this kind of weather is happening, maybe to take their mind off the present danger or to not be alone during the intense situation. I know I am always much happier to be at work than all by myself at home when those tornado sirens are going off. Now it is 38 degrees outside after being in the 70's today!!! Crazy!

Best Birthday Gift of all time...

Jeff and I went to PA for my birthday. It was very nice to spend some time with Jeff and my family. This was the first Birthday that Jeff hasn't had a gig on in quit a few years, so it was wonderful to have Him with me. My birthday gift from Him was us going to PA, but he insisted on getting me something else on my birthday...I have seen Mama Mia in theaters twice already, loving it even more the second time and not being able to get the songs out of my head...walking around the house singing them loudly. Well, Jeff got me the sound track as my something else for my birthday!

It was perfect...He bought the sound track from the musical, not the movie! It was so funny! He tried though...that is what counts. We got home late Friday night and on Saturday we continued my birthday celebration! He disappeared for a little bit with Brian and came home with this...
I was so excited! I then baked a cake...thinking this is the last thing to celebrate, but oh how I was wrong!

Before we left for PA I vacuumed the house, and as usual it was very frustrating because my vacuum SUCKS! I have needed a new one so badly, but just hadn't gotten around to it. I was complaining to Brian about my vacuum. Meet my new best friend...

Thank you so much Brian!!! This is one of the BEST gifts anyone has ever given me. I'm still a little in shock and giddy about it!!!

Tomorrow, I will put my Mama Mia CD in and plug in my new Vacuum and dance with it around the house!!!

Party time!

My friend Sarah and I threw a bridal shower for our good friend Stacy followed by Her Bachelorette party. It was a day full of yummy food...


And just good fun with the girls...

Ironically, we all work together so on top of a wonderful night, it was amazing to have a Saturday off for all of us!!! Good times were had by all!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day enjoying family and fireworks! Unfortunately for me, I had to work and even though I got off early, I don't live near my family and Jeff is out of town, so I was on my own. However I tried to make the best of it.
I pulled out the old fashioned hot dog roller! This thing is amazing...I recommend it to everyone! Disappointingly the "on sale" hot dogs I bought tasted AWEFUL! I took 2 bites and trashed them. I ended up resorting to this instead...
Pizza rolls have never let me down!

Again, Happy 4th!

Even if only for a few days, it is so nice to get away. So refreshing. My family moved from FL (where I was born and raised) to PA in February. It's strange not flying into Tampa and instead flying into Baltimore! Here are a few things I did while in PA.

My Mother and I. My Dad, enjoying the beautiful view.

I didn't take as many photos as I would have liked to during my trip. Actually I only took pictures on the first and last day I was there.

My Dad and I went to a ball game before my flight on saturday. It was so nice out and I forgot how much I loved going to events like this. Growing up we always had a game of some sort to go to and I would always beg my mom for a huge pickle from the concession stand. Behind the field was a cow pasture and even with the smell I extremely enjoyed that time with my Dad!

(this is not my dad...hah...I just thought it was funny)

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with my family and the only thing that kept me from not wanting to leave was knowing that my FAVORITE person would be joining me at home the following day!
