Short and Sweet

I'm still stuck in this truck! Help me! Yesterday we were so lucky to stop in Kansas and see some family that I have not got to see in a very long time! They were just as excited as we were to see each other! We cooked out and watched Zane run around like a mad man! We also got to shoot some guns! Big guns and little guns! Zane got to shoot a .22 for the first time! He was so excited! I will share more about the visit once we get back from vacation. Until then enjoy you're weekend!

...that I may not blog a lot while on this road trip. Find me on Twitter or Email me!

If you want to join in on "It's OK" Thursdays, all you have to do is type up a post like I have here, grab the linky button (to the right of my blog) for your post, and link up!

 What's okay with y'all today?


Welp, I'm off to see the Wizard!

While I am cooped up in the truck and on the road, I won't be posting very much for the next week or so! I will only have my cell phone and my kindle. If you want to talk and keep me occupied, you can email me or find me on twitter! I hope that you will, because I will be in this dang truck for at least 24 hours! If you have been following me for a while, you should know that my little family and I are heading west for vacay! You can read more about it in this post. We're going to Colorado! So, I kind of lied in the title. I'm not off to see the wizard. I'm going to see this pretty lady named Monica when we first get out there! I will also be meeting Jen! Words cannot express how excited I am to meet both of these beauties!

Today, Monica is my very FIRST guest post here at TCCG! Please make her feel at home here. Take it away girl!


Thank you Annabelle for inviting me to do a guest post on your blog!

I want to do a post on something I feel very strong about! Religion!! I know it's a very touchy subject for some and I hope I don't offend anyone! I grew up in the catholic church and as a young girl I was taught that if you don't live by the bible you will not get into heaven! I remember making my first holy communion, going in the big box to confess my sins to the priest and saying the rosary every night before going to bed! I remember being so scarred growing up that I wasn't going to heaven because I did commit sin! Why does there have to be So many different religions when there is just one God? As adult I have come to realize that God loves me no matter what church I may or may not go to! He loves me with or without my tattoos! He loves me even if I have too much to drink and have a mouth of a sailor. He died on that cross to forgive us for all our sins! I'm not perfect but then again no one is! So for those people out there who think its ok to judge other people maybe they should take a really good look in the mirror and go back to their bible.
"Thou shall not judge!"

Thank you Monica! I know exactly what you mean. Everyone has their own idea of how things should work, but in the end he is the only one who can judge us. I cannot wait to give you a big southern hug!

If you don't follow me on Twitter or instagram, you're missing out! I will be posting on those a lot while I'm traveling!

I've got the fever!

No, not baby fever! Lawd have mercy, I just don't think I could handle two right now!
I have been struck with the Fall Fever! It's hot as hades here in South Cack-a-lack and the humidity is awful!

I am craving 70 degree weather with little to no humidity. Those of you who do not live where it is humid, I envy you! I am hoping that while I am on vacay in Colorado that we will see some of this weather I speak of. This is what the week out there looks like so far:

I love so much about Fall! Not only is the weather great the smell and looks of fall rock my world! Some pumpkin spice, harvest anything, I'm all over it! Here are some fall things I am loving right now!

I love when the leaves change colors! Everything is so bright! The smell in the air is amazing! I love Bath & Body Works "Leaves" scent the best!

I am looking forward to decorating my house in all the fall ideas on pinterest and having picnics in the mountains!

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE fall fashion! I just can't get enough!

What do you love about fall? If you don't like fall, what season do you like?

The Girl of Many Faces

Happy Monday my Fabulous Readers!

I have told y'all before that I like to take pictures of myself. I bet you do too, don't lie. The hubby hates it, he thinks it's silly. I do it for different reasons; I'm bored, wasting time or taking pics to send to others.

Since I didn't do anything this weekend other than pack and get things ready for our trip, I figured I would fill your Monday with the next best thing, ME! haha

So, enjoy the girl of many faces and smiles.

I will return tomorrow with better content, promise! Until then, make the most of Monday and enjoy seeing my perdy face!

Dear Zane, I sure hope you are ready for this again! I also hope that you will be on your best behavior and not pitch a durn fit like you did last night.

Dear Jen, I am sorry that I have been MIA. I have no excuse but I feel like we haven't talked much this week! We will have to fix that! Have fun on your vacay!

Dear Monica & Jen, I cannot WAIT until next Friday! It will be an interesting visit with all three of us wild women!

Dear Headache, Don't you start with me today. I will kick you where the sun don't shine! You got that? Good.

Here are the questions Amanda asked:

What is something we don't know about you?
You may not know that I wear my jeans more than once before washing them! #don'tjudge

What is your dream job?
My dream job would be to travel the country with my family and get paid to tell you about it! I wouldn't mind living in a huge motorhome!

What is your favorite thing about blogging?
This by far would be meeting new friends! I have pretty awesome relationships with my blog friends. I never realized what would come of me blogging. It really started out as something to pass the time and a place to keep memories. It now has it's own place in my heart and so do the friends that I have made through my blog!

If I could give you a plane ticket to anywhere, where would you go?
Right now in this second, I would have to say a plane ticket to Colorado! I really dread this LOOOOONNNGG drive that we are about to take next week, but it will be SO worth it! I will be making a few stops along the way! To see family, and to meet blog friends! I am so excited! #7daysuntilweleave

What's your favorite meal?
Mexican food! Wait. Wings or pizza. Hell Both at the same time but not mixed together! I love food period! That's why I'm fat. I don't mind. I accept it. I like to call myself a "big girl". Saying I'm fat, that's just awkward for others to hear.

Any pets?
Yep. Willow. A tiny chihuauah that would rather be outside than inside. That's where she be.

If you won $150,000 how would you spend it?
I have it all planned out. The hubs would agree! We would pay off both cars and build a shop. Not just any shop, a big shop, man cave big shop. The rest would go into savings for Zane's college fund.

What is your favorite picture (please share it with us) and why?
Right now, this is my favorite picture. Crappy I know. But it shows two things. One, my obession with taking photos of myself in the car and two, how the hubs likes to mess those photos up! Every.Single.Time.

What's your favorite room in your house?
Hmm. That would have to be my livingroom. It's where we spend most of our time.

Tell us a little about your family...
Oh. Gah. We're WILD! When we talk we're loud. We like to laugh and give each other a hard time. We will pack our clothes for the weekend and not know our destination! We do not make our beds everyday, or ever. Wait. Unless I just washed the sheets, I will make the bed then, but that is only once a month or less. I pick up after myself most of the time, and the other two expect me to pick up theirs too. I usually do. Our grass grows in spots because of the oak tree. I will not let the hubs cut it down. There are black marks on the road in front of our house from burn outs. Yep. That's how you know you've arrived at the Smith's residence!

What do you consider to be your best quality?
Shit. That's a tough one. I don't know if I have a best quality. Do I? Maybe it's my ability to get easily distracted? Or it could be that I listen and forget what I just heard. So I will ask you again what you just said. Okay, my best quailty is my randomness. I will blurt out a song or maybe dance in the store like a ballerina for you. You Choose. Let me know. This could be fun. ha!
