My Top Ten Television Shows

OK I have committed to do several top ten lists in order to look back years from now and remember what I enjoyed in my 40's.

So, here are my current favorite Top Ten Television Shows:

1. GLEE!!!!! I am a GLEEK!!!!!! This show just makes me happy. And I love the music!

2. I love a good talent and this show is so much fun to watch, especially the try outs and finals.
3.I stopped watching last season because even I, who enjoys to chuckle at the occasional bad talent, couldn't stand anymore squaking. I don't even know who won and don't care. This season, the addition of Steven Tyler sweetens the pot for me as well as some very talented kids.
4. I am addicted.
5. Hilarious. Never fails to make me laugh out loud!
6.This show always makes me feel better about the state my own house is in. In addition, it makes me want to go scrub every inch of my house. I call this my motivation show.

7. Because even rednecks get married. This show is why people under a certain IQ should not reproduce.

8. I keep hoping to see something on this show one day I have in a closet that's worth $1 million.

9. Maybe because I'm southern, but this show never ceases to astound me. I mean how many smoky eyes can one create in a television series?
10..This show is number 9 because it only comes on once a year. And it takes me all year to recover from the bad talent.

Lots to Talk About!

This past week I have discovered the use of templates for my digital scrapbooking. My opinion? Great results in about 1/2 the time. I've enjoyed using them and here are my results:

and this one:

I also did some pages - this one is of my mother and my grandfather. I've decided I need to scrap more family memories and I love this picture:

I also did this one of Payton:

I have some more big news to post tomorrow!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day everybody! Ah, the day of love. I am so thankful to have my family, husband, puppy dogs, and friends! I love you all!

Yesterday we spent the day moving my sister Stephanie and her three children back to Alabama. Friday I rode the train up to Greenville SC and met the most interesting people - a college professor, a man who was moving to Carolina from New Orleans, and a retired USAF master seargant something or another. They were delightful and I really enjoyed the train ride.

So, we spent Saturday packing and loading and packing and loading, and hit the road yesterday at 7:00 AM. Everything was just peachy until we were on the west side of Atlanta. I was driving behind Stephanie and all of a sudden her Budget Rental Truck started rocking from side to side for no apparent reason. We pulled off the road, called Daddy and he eventually towed it to Tuscaloosa. Never a dull moment! In the meantime however I was able to snap some long overdue pics of my nephew and neices, Josh, Sarah and Angel. Here they are being silly:

My favorite pic of my youngest neice Angel:

And her brother Josh:

And Sarah:

The kids are all starting a new school today..........I hope it goes well!

Woo Hoo!!!!!! Happy Day!!!

I am thrilled to announce that I have made the layout team for Sweet Tomato Scraps! Here are my first three layouts that are available at Scrappity Doo Dah through the month of February, where Cara is the guest designer! The first kit I've worked with is named FROLIC and it is soooooo precious! I'm learning to shadow, too to produce a better finished product.

I can't wait to do more and share them with everyone - her kits are amazing! Thank you Cara, I am thrilled to be on your team!

Christmas in January

Last weekend Bill and I met the rest of his family (or most of them) in Brent, Alab ama at their family farm. His cousin Paul and Paul's wife Robin were in town, and the rest of the family gathered for Christmas. Yes, Christmas. We had the traditional turkey and dressing, candied yams, etc. (yum), and dead man's cake which was delish! Here are some pics:

This is Julian, Bill's second cousin. He is three and is the most beautiful boy I have ever seen! Can boys be beautiful? LOL

Here is Graham Martin. He also has a big sister Lane. They are both so precious!

Here are Chaz and Graham playing in the barn:

How lucky I was to have such great subjects, and they were such great sports! I'm already looking forward to the next Christmas in January!
