Ten on Tuesday

1. I love going to watch Tyler play tball. Seriously, it puts a smile on my face every time, and I think about all the cute and funny things the kids do the entire day.

2. Our street is being repaved this week, apparently they do it every four years. Some streets don't get repaved every fourteen years, but this neighborhood is full of elderly, retired people that have nothing better to do, so we must remove our cars from our house by 7 Thursday morning, and they can't come back until 7 Saturday morning. If you see above, the elderly, retired people probably don't have to leave their homes, so it is not a big deal. I will have to lug my sh** and my kids to and from the house to the Country Club parking lot every time I want to go somewhere. UGH! Frustrated to the max.

3. Ate at Beckett's Table. AMAZING. I love short ribs. His were AMAZING. I can't wait to go back. They also have Bacon Cheddar Biscuits-need I say more. The dessert we had was Chocolate Covered Bacon, Graham Crackers, PEANUT BUTTER MOUSSE, homemade marshmallows, drizzled with caramel-YUM!

4. Also ate at Bobby Q's. I have wanted to go for awhile, but honestly, the location is a little sketchy for me, but we braved it Saturday, and it was delicious. They start you out with these corn bread cakes, and when you are leaving, they give you donuts. Everything in between was wonderful as well: pulled pork, mac and cheese, burger, fries, YUM!

5. After reading the previous two, I should really just be happy that I don't weigh 300 lbs instead of always being so down on myself for my current weight! HA!

6. Tyler had to make a favorite things bag for school, in it she included: a pink ponytail holder because pink is her favorite color, a picture of fruit because that's her favorite food, a picture of Ellie the elephant because she doesn't go anywhere without her, a Hannah Montana necklace, and a picture of James. Jackson says, "Why didn't she put a picture of me in there? I should be one of her favorite things!" My response, "Daddy and I didn't make the cut either dude!"

7. I have been obsessed with House Hunters lately, and seriously I SCREAM at the television when they pick the wrong house. OMG, it frustrates me to the end of the world and back. I would not sacrifice living on a quiet street for a view, and you won't either when you have those kids you want in about two years! OMG!

8. I have only had one amazing massage in my life. It was at a chiropractic office, where I went for a consultation and what not, but I never went back for the recommended treatment, so I am afraid to call and make an appointment just for another massage, but it hurt oh so good. She was amazing.

9. We are going to Tucson in a month, and my mouth is already salivating when I think of Eegee's.

10. Pat LOVES LOVES LOVES his new job, and he is much happier, which in turn makes us all happier.

Hi Colleen!

1. I love little kid t-ball. B played t-ball in December & January and it was the cutest thing ever.

7. I love House Hunters, too. And I'm really enjoying Selling New York.

9. Funny, I had Eegee's today and I never eat there. It really is good, I don't know why I don't go there more often.

Ok so, for the longest time thought maybe Becketts Table was some kind of charity...I think the owner lives in my neighborhood, cause I always see the car that has the "Becketts Table" decal on it....Finally I noticed it while driving down Indian School the other day. duh!
