July Happenings

Some mornings I feel like the Waffle House waitress around here. Sadie wanted Oatmeal and Trista wanted Waffles. Comin right up! Homemade waffles of course cause that is the only way I make them. Although my life would be much easier, I've never bought bisquick. Dont get me wrong...there's a box of Mac N Cheese in the pantry as I type!!
Am I a Short Order Cook or what?!
Where did July go? I am looking ahead at the calendar and every weekend in August is comletely booked with plans or work closings and inspection follow ups. I'm not complaining but might as well save myself some time and just skip to September. I cant do that though, so much is happening in August. Chris and I will be celebrating our 12 year anniversary, the fair...I LOVE the fair, dads Bday and other happenings. This last weekend was a quick trip and last minute trip to Atlanta to see Brandi Carlile in concert at Chastain Park. What a neat place. Papa Tom hooked us up with picnic table, basket,candle and table cloth. We munched on hummus, susi and milano cookies(my favorite) while we wached Brandi Carlil jam it out. Love her voice. She's folky, raspy and has a passion for music. Only 30 years old and been singing since she was 20. She was amazing! Thanks Mimi and Papa Tom for watching the girls such late notice.
The toilet lid layering is compliments of us visiting our first Port O Jon. Chris must have done this to the toilet when he took the girls to the "potty" when we were at the car show two weekends ago. This is what I found the Monday after the weekend. Unfortunately those are not tiolet paper pieces. They are the moist wipes that are more expensive....needless to say, the chince that I am, they went back in the box.
Well there is one thing for sure. Our girls may not know how to work an IPAD completely but they'll know how to
sweat like a man, spit like a man
and change a tire by the time they are 8! They are outside all the time. And the heat doesnt bother them. Sometimes while I'm out there with them I'm begging after 20 minutes to go inside. I bribe them with popsicles, cookies... you name it. Chris got the girls up early this morning, 5:30am to be exact, to go on yet another road trip, to Jackson to see yet another man about yet another truck! Although I was not too crazy about them being stuck in the car most of the day I am not complaining as I sit here with my luke warm creamered(is that a word?) down coffee, Brandi Carlile blaring on Pandora, laundry done, house clean and a wonderful sound...no kids fighting over a toy they just cant seem to share.:) Some mornings I want to pull my hair out when they are here and yet I MISS them when they are gone.
Didnt get a picture while we were there but did get over to Jackson on Wednesday to see mom and dad. Thanks mom for lunch, loot,load of figs..Mmm and all the goodies. The girls love their Juju and Papa. And thanks Stephen for driving while I was non stop on the phone for two hours with Real Estate stuff. Muah!
