Moving on Up

Brace yourselves.

Stand back!

I got a new phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our phone contracts expired on Friday, so Steve got me a new phone.

Do I like it? NO
Will I like it? I am sure I will when I figure it out.
I sure do miss my old faithful, fit in my back pocket phone.

I can text in modern style, take pictures and have twitter, facebook and all that.
I am moving on up in the world. I know many of you are proud!


Girl--I still have an old faithful phone...have not switched to smart phone yet! ha-ha-ha. I don't even TEXT, ha-ha

Laurie...this is totally off the subject of your new phone...HA! but Kelly always mentions that at your SS get together's that you ask funny or interesting questions that gets the group talking and sharing...?
Would you mind sharing a few with me? We are beginning to do the same thing, and would like some help in that area....! Thanks! Sallie Baker

I do love the fact that you are moving on up. Ha! What I love even more is I think that we have the same phone. A Motorola Cliq? It's fun once you get used to it. Hope you enjoy it.

So proud of you! And I'm right behind ya. My stoneage phone needs to retire soon, but it's so hard letting go.

On another note, thought you'd like knowing, our Sea Monkeys are still living - they are 5 months old now. Not sure how I let you influence my decision to get these for our little boy, but it happened. Yours died right away, if I recall correctly, so I felt this was no gamble. Ha! Oh well, we'll be proud Sea Monkey owners until the Good Lord takes them away from us. ;) Uhm, and we'll never own Sea Monkeys again. :p

I have been reading your blog for a while and I just wanted you to know I love it! You are so funny and cute as can be. I love hearing all of your little stories and just FYI, I made your roast 2 weeks ago and it was to die for! Just wanted you to know :-). I live in TN and have 3 girls-5, 2 1/2 and 1- and wish we could be friends IRL. :-) Congrats on your new phone!

I saw kelly's tweet the other day about you getting a smart phone!! Hopefully you will get the hang of it soon. What's your twitter name so I can follow? I'm @RyVaughn. Oh I thought of you today when I walked in to Home Depot. There were birds flying around, about to go in the store and I thought of you and what you would do if you were me!! hahaha :)

You are brave to get a touch screen. I'm an old school blackberry gal...I need the keys...
In fact I have two blackberrys (one for work) and was so thankful that my company did not supply iphones...whew!

THIS IS SOO FUNNY!!! I just got a new phone today!! I had my old one for 4 years and all it did was make phone calls... the past 6 months or so I wasn't able to dialt he number 6 or text the letters MNO, I always tell everyone you have NO idea how many words have a M, N, or O in them! sheesh! I am still trying to figure out my new fancy phone too!! Glad I'm not the only one! :)

Yay for technology! We are far from a smartphone and I don't care to admit it :D

Also, I almost got attacked by a mama robin last night and all I could think of was you! I can totally relate now!

Love this post! I still have the old one. We just don't want the bill!!! We figured it out and it will be $1100 more a year to have them. What's funny is that we make the money. I can see I have my dads tight ways. I just won't pull it out in public, lol!

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.
