Glory Bee!!

Saturday afternoon, I decided to go to Tulsa. Why you ask?? I wanted to get a new digi camera at BestBuyorCircuitCityorSamsWholesaleClub.

UJ didn't sleep well...er rather he slept too well and way too late so he felt bad. There is something terribly wrong with that. When you sleep late you should feel GOOD, not bad! I hate it when that happens. Needless to say he was not his normal cheery self. (*snicker*)

I pulled out all the stops to convince him to go shopping with us. I whined, I cried, I showed leg, cleavage and the man must be made of steel because he turned down a 2 hour drive with 3 females to go shopping. Can you believe the self control this man must have?? This adventure even included a late lunch! Oh well, his loss. haha

We arrived in Tulsa famished from they days activities at home so we went to IHOP. Not my favorite, but the girls picked it. It was their turn to pick so I couldn't say anything except, "Check please." Cassidy and Carly ordered breakfast items while I opted for a yummy turkey samich. With our tummies full and bladders empty we headed to search for the camera.

Pit stop: Old Navy where my daughters managed to get two outfits each from the sale racks...Mom: nothing

Sams: it was a bust. nothing in our price range

Best Buy: BINGO!! Exactly what I wanted we chose wisely, bought the protection plan (since I lost my last digital camer to a few drops of water) and were on our way to the next stop: Woodland Hills mall.

By this time it is 8pm and we all know the malls close at 9pm so we had to hurry. Carly came prepared with her money that she earned the night before, but was reluctant to spend it. She would have rather spent mommy's money. haha what teenager wouldn't?

She found a couple of nice shirts at Aeropostale and Cassidy found some Princess figurines at The Disney Store. I was happy knowing that my camera awaited me in the car.

I have taken a few pictures but forgot to down load them before writing this post, so you will have to wait.

Stay tuned for pictures of Kai and his favorite Aunt SuSu. Tomorrow we will be dining with the Jory-San family before they depart for home in Japan.

That's all I have to tonight folks....g'nite.

Fry Day

Wow. Another week gone! The days fly by.....

I am just letting my thoughts wander tonight. Let's see where we end up shall we??

Go say Hi to Badoozie....she needs some cheering up.

My neighbor had a 4-D ultrasound this week and you would not believe the clarity of the pictures. You can see Baby Emily's nostrils!! How cool those things must be. Her US was totally for entertainment. Everything is going fine and Emily is still baking nicely.

Baby Kai loves all his Okie family. He is such a good baby and loves looking and laughing at us. I want to see him more and am restraining myself from hovering over them while they are here for their visit from Japan. They will be here one more week then back they go until Christmas-time.

Speaking of Christmas, how many shopping days are left? I should start saving now. My daughters are getting old enough that their "toys" are getting more and more expensive. :o)

CarlyJo locked herself out of her ipod. I should google a solution.

Uncle Joe had DirectTV installed this week. I haven't seen him since. haha Really it is a nice package, but who needs all those channels?? It does have a dvr so he can record things for me. Hey, Leslee there is a whole channel devoted to GH Today! You would love it.

I am going to attempt to sew some curtains for my kitchen this week. I have never sewed in my life. They may end up stapled together. :o)

We got a huge box of almonds from California this week. What a treat and what a yummy box!! We have had fun fun fun tasting all the different flavors. So far my fave is Razzberry Cheesecake. Check them out here.

We had a scare this week. One of CarlyJo's friend stepped on our cellar door and it collapsed. Kaitlin was not hurt, other than a nasty scrape to her belly and elbows THANK GOD. I am surprised UJ's defibrillator did not go off as scared as they all were.

Have you ever felt invisible? Sometimes I do.

My brain is tired and it wants to sleep now.

I will be attending a ladies retreat at my church tomorrow morning. Brunch, music and inspiration....sounds like a winner to me. :o)

Have a great weekend.

Rockin Saturday

Today my dad and I are going to a rock sale. What??!! I love rocks. Always have. My Nan loved rocks too. That must be where I get it from. I can remember sitting in her driveway when I was a little girl picking out all the smooth brown rocks. When we go to the Barren Fork Creek my cousin, Bret, and I always hunt for rocks with holes in them. I always come home with a sack full of rocks for Nan's rock garden that remains in front of our house. Bret's son, Blake also loves rocks. He once received a large bag of rocks from Nan as a birthday gift and absolutely loved it. When he comes to visit I always let him pick out a rock from the rock garden to take home.

CarlyJo wants to put something else there, but I am not ready to get rid of it yet. It has to be my idea and I am not ready to give it up yet. I think it will stay for a while longer and I will be adding some more rocks to it today. :o)

Hurry Up and Wait!

Is anyone else waiting with bated breath for the new Casting Crowns album??

I thought it was being released yesterday and went on a search for it, only to find out it is TWO more weeks away. Ahhhhh!!

They are so awesome and have such a great message. I know that God will speak to me through their songs.....He always does.

Just wondering

When you eat a cinnamon roll or sweet roll, do you eat it in concentric circles or just dive in and eat it??

I eat around it in concentric circles. :o)

My CarlyJo

Here is Carly at church camp this summer. I look at it and wonder; WHERE DID MY BABY GIRL GO!!?? When did she turn in to this tweenager? She still has the cute little cowlick and the freckle on her cheek that I love to kiss.
*Sigh* Time sure does fly.......

You would think

You would think that with the huge doses of cough medicine I have been taking all week I would be passed out by 9pm. Nope, I have not been bed before midnight one night this week.

The girls are starting school in two weeks. Uncle Joe is counting the days. I can't believe we made it again. This summer has blown by so fast! It seems as though at my age time flies whether you are having fun or not.

Jory San, Noriko and Baby Kai will be arriving in two weeks as well. I am looking forward to seeing them again. It has been a year since I have seen Jory last and my lips are quaking in anticipation of kissing that Kai!

that is about all I can muster up tonight. I am outside on my laptop and the monster mosquitoes are about to carry me away......
