Hello Redbox!

Redbox, here I come!
I took the movies back on Wednesday to Blockbuster. I just had to go in to find out what happened with the bird. The manager told me that they have about FIFTY birds that live in the attic and they fly in all the time through the vents.
I wanted him to talk fast so I could get out of there!!!!!
I don't think I will be going back......unless I do the note with Emily again.

I am happy to hear that I am not alone in my bird fear. Your comments have encouraged me.

Yesterday I bought a bunch of flowers and let the girls help me plant them in our planters. It is always a happy day when I pot flowers.
We all got clean and had a little family outing to the mall. The girls are doing a little better now when we go out to eat. Progress! Steve's famous words in a restaurant for the past couple of years have been, "we are never doing this again."

I'm not a fan of birds flying in buildings either....

My husband uses your husband's notorious phrase EVERY time we eat

Laurie, you for sure are not alone! I have a very bad history with birds. I'll spare you the gory details! I'm glad you had a happy birthday!

Gross on the birds! Can't believe he told you that.

Redbox is a must! Did you know there is one at the gas station on the corner of Hwy 12 and Greenhouse Rd. And you can reserve your movies online to make sure it's there when you want it! Redbox may be your new BFF!
50 birds, gross!! I just learned that Blockbuster got bought out by Dish Network, so all of the blockbuster locations may or may not be closing soon! We use Netflix and love it!
Melissa said…
yeah...i would find a new movie about Netflix?

and what cute outfits...matching, yet them.
Nancy said…
I'm so glad you didn't see the fifty of them.
Yay for an outing with the fam! We did that Friday night as well. I found purple Converse on sale @ JC Penney's for $6 each & put them on Ebay & they are a hot item!
Jessica said…
50 birds??!! Um, I'd NEVER be going back there again! That is crazy!

My girls are 2 & 4 and we are now just saying that eating out isn't terrible! :) We don't do it often but it is definitely getting a bit easier the older they get.

I'm not afraid of birds, but FIFTY birds living in the building? Isn't that against health or sanitation laws or something??? Yes, I'd recommend Redbox, so nice to be able to check availability and reserve online before going to pick it up, only $1 apiece, and there are often ways to earn free rentals!

I don't mind birds, but the prospect of 50 birds flying around me at any given time gives me the creeps!
Love the girls in their matching outfits, soooo cute!
I so miss dinners out- thank the Lord for PNO!!

You are cracking me up with the bird stuff- FYI redbox always has a line!! Just do on demand!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
