I Bought It...

After talking with family and friends, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and read The Hunger Games.
I was skeptical about the series, because it's not what I usually am interested in, but I've been going outside my comfort zone more recently and figured I would give it a go.

What is your opinion about the series?

Phone Photo Fun

Today I'm linking up for one of my favorite linkups!

I don't usually have time to prepare a post, but today I did!
So, here we go.

Shadow hanging out under my sister's makeshift hammock.

The beautiful sunset sky while going on a walk with the siblings.

The siblings trying to hide their faces from the camera while on a walk.

Sister wanted a picture of her jumping. (This took about 10 tries.)

The defaced gas pump where I got gas the other night.
It says "Obama Sucks! Vote him out! Herman Cain 2012!"
I sent this to Love since he's always raving on about politics.

The family went to Cold Stone for dessert last week during our "heat wave".
I sent this to Love and he was jealous.

Love sent me this picture of Zion National Park.
He went to visit his aunt and uncle out in St. George, Utah last week, while I stayed here in Ohio.
They spent a day at Zion sightseeing and taking pictures.

There you have it! That's what I have for this week.
Go on over to What Makes Savanah Smile and check out all the other lovelies and their phone photos!

Pictures Galore

Princess in all her cuteness.

She was Jess's girl for the night.

She was trying to pose.

There she is!

The beautiful sky driving to work one morning.

Love at Dave and Buster's for his birthday.

His bubblegum machine he got as a prize from part of his D&B tickets.

A beautiful sunrise on my way to work.

It was March 20, 2012 and we broke the heat record here in Dayton.

Aside from these pictures, all I did was work. I've been working a little bit more than usual, but I'm not complaining. I'm very happy with everything going on with my life right now.

Also, I get my braces off on April 3rd!! I'm so excited and it's right before my birthday! Happy birthday to me!

I'm sorry for the unexpected hiatus from bloggy world.

I've had such good ideas for posts lately, but I've been so busy that I haven't been able to put them together. And I got a blog award from my good friend Christine, so I need to post about that too!

But I will be back! My schedule is slowing down a little bit, so if I don't get one posted tonight, then I hope to this weekend.

Stay tuned!

Only The Fun Parts

I'm going to only tell you about the fun part of my weekend. 
Because I worked all day Saturday and it sucked
Let me tell you!....Well, not really.

Saturday wasn't all bad. 
Before I went to work, I spent some time with the greatest nephew ever.
He stayed the weekend with us.
I gave him a bath Saturday morning and he came into my room and started posing on my bed.

Look at this hot stuff!!

He makes me smile. I love hanging out with him.

On Sunday, I was on the go all day.

First I went to brunch with my family for my grandma's birthday. 
We went to Max & Erma's and it was quite delicious.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures.
Afterwards we went back to our house and visited with everyone for awhile.

That evening I went out with Love and his family for his birthday dinner.
We went to Mimi's Cafe, and it was delicious!
I ate the Crispy Chicken Salad.

He's goofy.

Love this boy. :)

Today was a rainy day.
When I got to work, it looked like the geese and the ducks were enjoying the rain.

I hope you all had a great weekend and good Monday!

"We Speak Fish"

We know where to catch the very best seafood,
and we sail the world to find it.
We know how to prepare and serve
seafood so every bite is delicious.
We know how to make every customer
feel comfortable during every visit.
After all we've learned over the past
40 years, you could say that
"we speak fish".

~since 1969~

At dinner tonight, I learned that apparently Long John Silver's "speaks fish"!

Dream More

I think I'm finally done messing with my blog.

I changed the name, layout, and design.
What do you think?

I got inspiration for the name from this:

This is a canvas I have hanging on my wall.

I love it.
I read it almost every day.

I hope y'all are having a great weekend!
