you know those days

There are those days that you have.......
When you are cleaning and hidden between the couch and the wall is THIS secret stash.

and you are surprised to find yourself HAPPY to find him eating wheat things rather and granola bars rather than a mountain dew. At this point you know you have a tainted thought process and you wonder if you will ever be sane again.

Then there are those days when you make a great crafty FREE plastic bag holder to contain about fourty plastic bags out of an old nylon and he looks at it and says... looks like your vericose vein babe.

And those are the days that you don't feel bad that he is driving around in this

The Honeymoon

I was bad..I didn't take many pictures but here are a few.
So despite my money worries, Richael insisted on a honeymoon getaway...Cancun to be exact. It was great. Getting away always is...

...especially when it means you get to see one of the seven wonders of the world!!! Chichan itza!!

And here we are in our bus....a four or six hour bus ride ONE way.

More pictures of Chichanitza

And here is Richeal in the geeky tourister hat he had to buy to keep from roasting himself.

These are just a smidgeon of the buildings and ruins that we saw. IT was crazy. This place wa HUGE and the buildings never stopped.

YOu know those cheesey pictures room mates take when they dress the same...well...we have the same problem. All to often we are matchee matchee. And it looks oh so Cheesey Cheesey.

This is Richael sleepin

This is Richael awaking just enough to realize his picture is being taken.

welcome to living with ronnie

Standing in the airport on our flight home from the honeymoon. I am standing in line and I am rather obvious because I am the only one standing in line doing full
body stretches, lunges etc before I board the plane.
A lady I have never met before comes up to me and says,"Do you have some toiliet paper"
I think this is the strangest thing for her to be asking me for toiliet paper in the middle of the airport. So I say to her, "excuse me?"
She gets a little closer to my face and says, " I don't mean to embarass you, but you have toilet paper hanging from your pants." At this point I realized she was never asking me for toilet paper but telling me that I had some..hanging...from my pants.

Richael does a check for me and sure enough he pulls a few sqaures of toilet paper out o the back of my pants. I start busting up laughing. This is my life..these are the kind of things that happen to me. And now Richael has to take part in the embarassment. I just can't stop laughing at the thought of me stretching in line with a tail o toilet paper waving in the wind behind me.


I continue to laugh as we board the plane and Richael says to me...there is probably more..I just pulled what I could and it broke off. So I went a digging and pulled MORE toilet roll from my pants...still laughing. NOt sure where to put I saved it so I could take a picture.

Most people would be MORTIFIED at this...but this sort of thing is not so bad for me. I once had a toilet seat liner hanging from my pants. This was so much better. lol.

I hope people didn't notice it flapping from my back when I passed gas...THAT would be embarassing. lol.

Two bands that I HEART HEART HEART enough to blog about at 5am...

The first is one o my favorite singers...MIRANDA LAMBERT who joined forced with Ashley Monroe and another girl. Ashleys voice is gorgeous and like no other very airy sweet twang. She did a duet with Ronnie Dunn a few years back (which just goes to show how good she is). Anyhow...Miranda pulled these girls together to to form the group PISTOL ANNIES. They blend so well and of course any song by Miranda has got just enough girl sass and their first song is called "hell on heels."

The second band is a guy and girl called Civil Wars and their voices blend so beautifully. They show how much inflection can have effect in a song in their song Barton Hollow. I am addicted to listening to this song. This song is also way old school country haunting but a great upbeat background.

Perhaps I will get savy enough to update videos...but you can't just copy paste a link anymore apparently. Sorry. I guess the only good news is that you can still copy paste the pictures!! But believe me...they are so worth looking up. CMT.COM is a quick reference to use. AMAZING!!!
