"Oh I miss those days as the years go by..."

I made it to the weekend! I just want to thank God and Mother Nature for the progression of days, music on my iPod for making the daylight hours less miserable, people that I talk to on a regular basis: Jordan, Nish, Cassandra, Nichole, Mom, for making the time go by faster, and last but not least, my dearest readers...all 10’s of you...you helped me get to the weekend by reading all of my complaining...thanks to you the most.

As you can tell, I’m very excited to experience a much needed 2 days off. I have a very busy weekend ahead of me. Before, I discuss that...I was going to tell you about the Special K Fruit Crisps...remember me talking about them?



A week or so ago, I was talking about a commercial for these and how they weren’t here yet. Well, Nish was in Birmingham and they had them there so she brought me some. I tried the blueberry this morning and they were VERY good. They are small but you get 2, they have icing, they are only 100 calories (2 points) and they taste A LOT like Poptarts...so I was really excited. Thanks Nish!

Ok-so, in case you didn’t know (which I’m sure you do), tomorrow is A-Day. A-Day is a scrimmage football game that happens every spring with the Alabama players. It’s a chance for people to put a little football in the needle and shoot up so they can (barely) hold out until football season starts again in the fall. I’m going to tailgate and possibly go to the game. First though, I have lots going on. I have to weigh (ugh), take my car in for an oil change and find time for a little exercise. Plus, sometime after the game starts, I am going to take pictures of my brother and his girlfriend before his first prom. Wow...I almost cried typing that. It hadn’t really occurred to me that my brother is almost a grown up. Geez...I better take a nerve pill so I can hold it together in front of his friends. I just saw a picture the other day of me before my senior prom and David was standing beside me...he was only at my hip and now he’s going to prom. I wish I had a scanner so I could show you that picture. I may try to scan it so I can compare an old picture and one from tomorrow that I take. Either way, I will share pictures from this weekend on Monday’s blog.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with great memories. I guess I should be happy that the week days go by slow...I shouldn’t wish my life away...but sometimes I can’t help it.

Bye!

“She grew up on a side of the road
Where the church bells ring and strong love grows
She grew up good
She grew up slow
Like American honey

Steady as a preacher
Free as a weed
Couldn't wait to get goin'
But wasn't quite ready to leave
So innocent, pure and sweet
American honey

There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowing in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing's sweeter than summer time
And American honey

Get caught in the race
Of this crazy life
Trying to be everything can make you lose your mind
I just wanna go back in time
To American honey, yea

There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowing in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing's sweeter than summer time
And American honey

Gone for so long now
I gotta get back to her somehow
To American honey

Ooh There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowing in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothin's sweeter than summer time
And American honey
And American honey.” American Honey-Lady Antebellum

  1. Thanks for the shout-out...

    Also..."all 10's of you..." - Hahaha!!! LOL! Love it.

    I hope that you enjoy A-Day tomorrow and have a lot of fun. I also wish you the best of luck tomorrow with your weigh in! Hopefully, you will be able to hold yourself together while you take pictures for David's prom. It is crazy to watch your younger siblings grow up. I can totally relate to that!
