Spring, Spring, SPRING! {I like it}

So today is the first day of Spring. For me it is a given that when Spring arrives, I have to start slingin’ around a huge cob-web duster and go to town, because that’s what I did this morning until I nearly fainted.

After I got the kiddos down for a nap, I walked by my back porch and saw this little squirrel on my deck. First, I thought it was dead…it was sprawled out, eyes closed, and it lay motionless. Then I saw the little guy’s eye peek open and I realized he was just relaxing in the sun. I decided to take a break from cleaning, take a photo of the fur ball cuteness, and then plan my schedule of spring cleaning for next week.

The squirrel laid there for over a half an hour, getting nice and toasty in the sun. I have to admit, I was a little jealous.

rebecky - I’m nuts for your sunbathing squirrel. He has such personality. You should be a wild wildlife photographer on the side.

Haider - My approach is slmpie- if you see it on my vids then i recommend it. If you see me using it then it is becuase I feel it is of quality. I dont want to have 500 BS vids. Anyone can say something bad over the internet. i would rather have 500 positive vids and let people take the hint on the brands and products that do not make the cut.If I get something bad for a review then I send it back or dont do the review. That is me. I try to take the high road.

Okonkwo - Nothing if they are authentic, I was rennieecrfg youtube channel FPSRUSSIA I am not a linguist specializing in russian dialects but I can tell FPS? Russia’s dominate language is English and he speaks in a manner to reinforce the implication of his chosen ethnicity.Point is, I would rather listen to Kyle Myers speak English as he blows shit up, than him prattling on in a horribly sloppy, fake ass russian accent.His accent notwithstanding, FPS has a few good vids.

Susil - I like Wilson Combat. NH is sorta like a Wilson? but not really. The way I look at Wilson v Hawks is that tv show American Chopper Sr. v Jr they ingancherte smiths and have similar ideas yet compete against each other I’ve owned Browns and Baers but i guess I dig WIlson.

Kwstas - usuxb4real Beauty Dior has really evloved into a star. When she first came out she had ass but not much else.Her management has really taken her in the right direction. She is more beautiful now than when she started her hair, makeup, and ass have all gotten better. Maybe its the money but she has definetly moved into the.number 2 spot for me. Pinky is fat, and not at all sexy anymore. Cherokee still holds on. But all the other fat asses are lame now.

Grandpa George Turns 90!!…PART 2

We went down to Columbia Tennessee last weekend for Brett’s Grandpa’s 90th birthday. Columbia is a small town about 45 minutes South of Nashville. They are famous for their “Mule Day” parade. It is a load of fun!! After all, it is the MULE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. (New fun fact for ya!)


Grandpa George (Samaha) is Brett’s Lebanese-American grandfather. He is so adorable. I hope Brett ages as handsome as him.:)He is a veterinarian that STILL PRACTICES in Columbia, TN. He lives on a beautiful farm, and it is always so much fun to spend time wandering around in the fresh country air. Here is Grandpa with Brett and great grandchild Gabe.

Here is Brett’s Mama Beth with her Daddy.

Almost everyday Grandpa eats at this restuarant. Let me just tell you, the food is REAL here.

Someone got Grandpa this hat. Brett was taking his picture, and after he took about 2 shots, Grandpa didn’t understand why he kept taking more!! He said, “How many photos do you need??”

On our drive home we were stopped in this. Seriously, this is not what you want to see with 4 children in your car.

When people get out and start walking their dogs, it’s NEVER a good sign. Luckily after about 45 mins. we were back in business.

I have some more photos of the farm and kids coming…..

Jenny C. - Love the one in the hat, you didn’t even need to tell us what he said, you can see it in his eyes and in the little wrinkle on his brow :)

Country Girls {A Mini Session}….PART 1

This is “Part 1″ of a few blog posts that will be up this week from our weekend trip to Tennessee. We went down there for Brett’s grandfather’s 90th birthday. We stayed with Brett’s Aunt and these are her 2 adorable little gals. My kids are crazy about these cousins of theirs, so they had such a fun time hangin with them all weekend. (Thank you Anna Claire for putting up with them!)

It rained a lot there, but the morning we were packing the car to leave, the early morning sun was so pretty. I knew their Mama wanted a few photos, so I called the girls out for about a 7.5 minute session.:)These two are beautiful, so it would be hard to NOT get good pictures of them.

Oh Happy Day x 2.

It’s late. We leave town early in the morning for a few days, but I wanted to shout a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY out to two of my favorite people. First is my favorite Father-in-law….in fact he’s the best I’ve ever had.:):)We had a great dinner tonight with Brett’s Dad Ray, and his wonderful wife Nancy. Thanks guys for spending it with us.


Second, to one of bestest and dearest friends, Luce. She is one of my only friends who leaves me blog comments on a regular basis (hint to all you slackers!) and she is such a lover of my babies….she is like a second Mama to them, and a sister to me. She is in Texas visiting her REAL sister and family, and I hope she is having fun!! Lucy I love you! Hope your day was a great one.


We will be out of touch the next few days, but I hope everyone has a great weekend!! Look for some fun pics next week.
