I have had this shadowbox frame for a few months just waiting for me to put Coco's Softball or Cheer stuff in it for safekeeping. I chose the Softball because she is still playing ball but Cheer only lasted a couple of years.
I took the photos with my phone so it is kinda blurry!

A closer look


Coco and I found this on a shopping trip this week. So funny and it didn't take long before i had to get into it. My boss bought La Huerto for lunch on Friday and we were all craving chocolate afterwards. We passed this around the office and I still have half a bar left.

The tree in front of our office is so pretty

It rained here literally all 5 days this week. One night coming back from the UPS box I noticed a beautiful rainbow in the sky. I got so excited I texted it to everyone I know. ha

Here is the other side ! So cool 

Later that same night driving home at 8pm the sky was very strange and scary looking. It seemed like a huge black cloud was hanging over our town.

I am so happy to be feeling well. I spent today cleaning, dusting, purging and organizing.
Love to have a clean house. Now I need to get our bed made with all new clean bedding.
One of my favorite things is fresh clean bedding!!
Makes me very happy!!

I have been sick for about a week now. I went to my family physician on Thursday and he really thought I was having a severe allergy attack but he gave me a script for a antibiotic just in case it turned into a secondary infection.

By Saturday I was feeling worse so I had the script filled and started the antibiotic Saturday evening. I was extremely sick to my tummy, you know just feeling horrible. My back started hurting throughout Saturday and Sunday. It feels like a elephant is sitting on my chest.

I got up this morning and went into work because I had loan closing at 8am that I needed to make sure happened. I called and scheduled another followup appointment with my doctor for 10:30am. Well I just couldn't seem to catch my breath all morning. On the way to the doctor it seemed to get worse and I got a little scared that I might be having a heart attack, so I went to the ER instead. I had EKG, chest xrays, blood work, etc. I thought it might also be pnemonia the way my back and chest hurt.
Come to find out I have a severe bronchial infection.

The point of my post is this. My husband has a lawn business and one of his long time customers he had to cancel today to come to the hospital to be with me. This man is a wonderful Godly man. I had never met him but had heard many stories of the talks he and Scott have. He has blessed us many times since Scott has been doing his lawn.
Anyway we were in the little ER room and there came a knock on the door. It was Mr. Ness, Scott's customer. He had to be next door for rehab appointment so he came over to the ER first. He was the sweetest man. He came to pray with us. So we 3 held hands and he prayed over me and for us and the doctors.

I was so touched by someone I had never met to make a special trip to check on me and want to pray with us. He even spoke of Coco in his prayers. I don't even have the words to describe how that made me feel. We don't even go to church with him.

GOD is so good. I am so happy that Scott has so many customers that think highly of him and are God loving people. In the past I have been frustrated when these jobs took to much time blah blah blah, but as I meet more of his customers I can see why he takes the time to stay and visit or do extra without getting paid.

I am home now and have doped up on my medications. My eyes are gettin heavy!!

Feeling very blessed in the midst of my nasty illness!!!

How about a post in bullet points!

-I have nothing to blog about in the past few weeks. I barely remember the past few weeks. All I have done for the past 4 months is work work work!! So grateful to have a job that keeps me very busy.

-I have discovered Kidd Craduck in the mornings. Love the banter with the group on the way to work.

-Scott is still power lifting and his arms and chest are super muscley.

-Coco is fast becoming a tweenager with lots of drama, emotion and chaos

-Abbi Lane is keeping us laughing

-This week marks the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts. Today March 12th is the birthday of the first Girl Scouts in America. We just spent the weekend in Little Rock, AR at the Clinton Presidential Library celebrating the birthday.

The Girl Scout exhibit at the Library

Replica of the oval office as it was set up in the White House during the Clinton Administration.

We took a trolley to the famous Peabody Hotel to see the Duck March.

The ducks march into the hotel fountain at 11am and march back out at 5pm each day. The Girl Scouts were honorary Duck Masters. It was the sweetest thing to see them strut there stuff on the red carpet. Our girls got to be lined on the red carpet to keep the ducks from cutting the corners. We got a sweet certificate that the girls will always have and remember.

Our trolley shut down at 5:45 so we had to walk back to the Library. The girls found this hill and posed for us. Looking at this photo I can't help but remember these girls as Daisy Girl Scouts and think about how much they have grown and are growing into young women.

We had lots of drama over the weekend with them so I was ready to get home. I realized how out of shape I really am. Walking so much I have aches all over. I have to find the time to exercise more.
I am also very glad I took today off on PTO to just have a day to myself before hitting the grind again on Tuesday.

In honor of Girl Scouts this week Do a Good Turn Daily this week!!

On my honor
I will try
to serve God and my Country
To help people at all times
and be a Sister to every Girl Scout

We have had a very low key weekend. I have had a Lupus flare up or I really do have the flu. I just know I have felt horrible for a few days now. I did get out some today to be with Coco at the Girl Scout cookie booth at Lowes. We also gave away some hard earned moola at Academy Sports. She needed shoes, shorts, shirts, socks and softball pants. She should be setup for the season. Oh yea helmet and some contraption to help take the ping out of the bat when she hits a ball and all I got was a pair of shorts.

I told her I don't know how parents with 2 or 3 kids do it. She said if I had siblings I would know that I couldn't have everything I wanted. Not that she really gets everything she wants but I think she would much rather have a sibling or 2. Sorry baby girl it just wasn't in God's plans for us.

On to the title of this post.
Our entertainment recently has been watching 2 new shows on CMT

Bayou Billionaires

This is the most hilarious show I have ever seen. They had drillers come in on their land so they are getting royalty checks off the natural gas or whatever. They call the money mailbox money. Because it just shows up in the mailbox and they don't have to do anything. I laugh so hard when I watch this. It is on on Saturday nights.

My Redneck Vacation

This one is a family from Louisana that is vacationing in the Hamptons. It is not as funny as the Bayou. They seem to all be alcoholics but they do some of the dumbest stuff that you have to laugh.

That has been my "lately" still working alot and loving my new job. I suppose it really isn't new anymore. All is going well.
