It was a great weekend and I wish they could have stayed longer! Hopefully we will head to California soon!
I thought I would leave you with a recipe for a summer snack!

Peel and slice the cucumbers (you may use however many you like)
Place in a plastic tubberware container and pour the Italian Dressing on top of them (make sure you cover all of them)

Tragedy in Arkansas!

I recently wrote about the terrible tragedy in Nashville due to the floods. Well, my home state Arkansas has now experienced our own tragedy due to floods! The Little Missouri River in Montgomery and Pike county flooded and many are dead and some still trapped or missing in the Albert Pike Campground. So far the deathtoll is up to 20. I am truly amazed at what flood water has been doing lately not just in Arkansas. I ask you to pray for the families and those affected by these floods in Arkansas. To view pictures and a video from this tragedy please visit http://www.todaysthv.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=106385&catid=238. It is truly a horrible scene and very sad.

CMT Awards/Nashville Love :)

I was watching the CMT Awards and it made me miss Nashville! I loved the opening act of the awards show! I mean Kid Rock! AWESOME!! Anyway, I thought Kellie Pickler's dress was terrible and I didn't like Miranda Lambert's either! It was GREAT to see Leann Rimes back! I love her music! I actually really enjoyed the Kieth Urban and John Mayer performance! I wasn't sure but it was pretty entertaining and their guitar was awesome!! I am so glad that Carrie Underwood got the video of the year! She is such a good singer!
Since I missed Nashville so much and it's almost been a year since I have been I had to post some pictures of our Honeymoon spent there! It was a blast and I truly can't wait to come back!
Here is me singing in one of the bars! It was a dream come true and I had soo much fun! It is still an incredible feeling and I must go back to sing again!

Here is me and the Hubby standing in front of the Grand Ole Opry. We unfortunatly didn't attend the Opry and I hope to one day or better yet, sing there!

I truly LOVE Nashville and have to return soon or I will go CRAZY!! HAHA! Do ya'll have a place you feel like this about?

I feel a little stuck in a rut or something! I don't really feel like I blog about much but random things. Maybe I'm just a boring blogger! Does anyone even read this blog? If you do please comment to let me know that someone is reading! Anyway, I guess I will just keep on blogging and if you don't read oh well at least I enjoy it!

Today I had to do a little shopping! Mainly because I desperatly needed some shorts since it's continusly up to 90 degrees each day! So I got two pair, one at Kohls and one at Belk's! I also picked up some other cute things ha! I got some famous Yellow Box shoes, I love them they are so comfy and cute! I also bought a shirt at TJ Maxx!

We have had a MAJOR ant invasion and the BUG man finally came Saturday! I'm so glad they are gone! It was crazy and they were everywhere!! We decided to go out for dinner that night and ate at one of our favorite resturants, Mike's Place! Since they were extremely busy we ate on their patio and it was great. So peaceful and still delicious! I had to teach my Sunday school kiddos Sunday and I just love them! They are always entertaining. Even though it was a slow weekend it was still lots of fun!

Memorial Day Weekend!

First off I would like to thank all of our soldiers and their families. It is truly a great sacrifice and without you I would not be able to have such freedoms today!
Friday- Actually, it was a boring Friday! We just sat around the house and relaxed for the day ahead.
Saturday- I spent most of the day making sure the house was clean because I was having a Passion Party that night. The party was tons of fun and while I was having a girls night, Heath went to watch the UFC fight with the guys. It was nice to have some time apart!
Sunday- I headed to church to teach my Sunday school kiddos. They are soo cute and I love teaching them. After church I went home and laid around all day because I still felt bad from being sick!
Monday/Memorial Day- Heath had to work on Memorial day so I went and did a little shopping with my Mom. I got some new flip flops and I LOVE them and also a small icechest that I'm going to have monogramed with our last name. I can't wait to get it done! We had a family cookout and it was always fun! Heath made it for the cookout and it was just nice to be around family relaxing!
Our weekend was GREAT! I can't believe it's already June, it doesn't seem like May should be over. I am ready to see what June holds for us! Have a GREAT rest of the week!
