Wednesday Lunches

 
 
Happy Friday! I am so glad the weekend is FINALLY almost here. It has been a long week. Of course on Wednesdays we still have our lunch at Mama's. This week she got a slip and slide for McKayla and Mason to play on. When I got there they had been at it for awhile and having a ball. It has not been a great week by any means but as always on Wednesdays I know at 12 I will be smiling when that little face grins or giggles or is teasing me. Nothing outside of that matters at the moment so in the middle of a bad week there is always a reason to smile. This is what is important. Family. Memories. 




 
Happy Friday hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Family Time

 
 
This was actually from the week of July 4th but better late than never right?
 
Mason and his beautiful Mama.

 
Cool dude is strutting his stuff at Grammy's.

 
This is one of my favorite pictures. Love his big blue eyes.

 
Later that afternoon I went to the lake (where Bryan had spent the day) since his family was there camping.
 
This is him with Regan (our niece) on the jet ski.


 
Nothing better than time with family.

Hair Chalk



Yes I really bought hair chalk.  I think it is fun and cute. Yes I know many disagree but oh well different strokes right.  Anyway if you do want to look into getting some I got mine from Etsy the shop is called Sexy Hair Chalk I thought the prices were very reasonable it shipped supper fast and I had it in no time. Very pleased and will definitely purchase again from there (very soon I'm sure I already want more colors). One option they have is for you to pick 3 colors of your choice for $5.49 (I got 2 sets).
 
The total 6 I picked
Purple
 Lake Blue
Royal Blue
Light Prussian Blue
Red Brown
Pine Green

The colors below in the pictures are Royal, Lake and Purple


 



 
It was actually pretty easy to use. Just be sure to put on an old tee before you start. Once you wet the pieces you want to color just picked a color and and ran it down the strands. Once you finish you can let your hair air dry or use a dryer. To set the color just straighten or curl and use a little hairspray. The color stays in well it comes out with shampoo with no problem.

Kings Dominion

 
 
This past weekend we went to Kings Dominion for the first time in 10 years! We had gone in 2003 which was the summer before Bryan's accident and had not been back. He has mentioned it the past few summers but I was always to worried. Anyway we finally went and we had and it was so much fun.
 
Of course we would go on the day it was in the high 90's with really no shade all day and basically were sweating like crazy from the time we got out the truck but we still had a great day just lots of water consumed. (Especially me since I am not like B and I work inside).
 
I told B when we got there it was probably the first time that it was just the two of us doing something together for more than a couple hours since we went to the concert back at the beginning of the year (March maybe?). We have gone to do stuff but normally it's to meet his family, my family or so on so not just me and B time. This was just us all day for some much needed time together. He is out of town so often that I hardly see him. Even when he is home is getting ready to go back so obviously not much time to spend together.
 
 
That was on the Shockwave and there was no way I was getting on it but I did get a good picture of him:)


The pics on the left I did get on the one on the right no way. I am petrified of heights and I was proud of myself for the roller coasters that I did get on which was more than I thought I would have gotten on. Of course part of that was B saying it wasn't that bad....which was a lie to get me on them lol.




top left- I had to take pictures of my future cards right? haha
top right- Bryan got Fried Oreos he said they were delicious... I will take his word for it call me crazy but I am not an oreo fan.
bottom left- lunch (ridiculously priced)
bottom right- Bryan found out they had Karaoke and that meant he just had to get on stage and sing. He really did an amazing job but then again he always does.


I am so proud of the above pic my score is the right one... yup I beat B. (This never happens and had to be documented for future reference)

Once it got dark they had this display in one section where the entire pathway was lit in LED lights and changed to the music. It was GORGEOUS! Actually one of my favorite things from the day.


Fireworks right before they closed.
 
So basically it was disgustingly hot, I got super sick on the way home (combination from a headache and the heat in my opinion), and walked until my legs fell like they were gonna fall of but it was worth every minute. We were worry free,  on no type of schedule and just the two of us and was one of the best days we have had in a long time. Hopefully we can do something like this again soon and actually spend some quality time together.

CardStore Review

 
 
Hello everyone I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We had a long weekend (4 days). Lots of fun post to come about it.
 
CardStore contacted me about doing a review on their cards and let me pick one to tell you about and the process was super easy. You can see all of their cards HERE.
I decided on the one below for Bryan's Birthday (not until August). I loved that they have several different options not only to personalize the ones they have but also that you could do a collage of your own photos and messages.
 
 
Click HERE to see the Photo Cards they are my personal favorites. Uploading your own photos is quick and easy you can pull photos not only from your computer but also your facebook account.
 
Once I uploaded the ones that I wanted and placed them you can go to the inside and write your own personal message. (Sorry you only get to see the front).
 
8 Square Photo
4.75x4.75

 
It turned out great and the process and mailing time was fast (always a plus since I normally wait til the last minute). I think from the time I ordered it I had it in about a week. You also have the option to send it to you or they will send it for you.
 
I think B is going to love it!
 
Be sure to check out the ones they have for the holidays as well. I know I will be going back and can't wait to get other cards and of course order my Christmas Cards.
