A few birthday pictures....

My darling hubs and I and another couple went to Nashville this past weekend to celebrate him turning the big 4-0! We had so much fun. We did alot in a short period of time, but worth every bit of the fun. In this picture, hubs is about to "lay out" for a serious pool shot. And, I do believe the form came through for him and he made it. Now....please note that the girls DID NOT play pool. We stood off to the side and smiled so sweetly at our men!


Here is Jenny outside the Wildhorse Saloon. This is an infamous spot in downtown Nashville, so I hear. They have some weird, freaky looking horses everywhere and we had to take some pix.

These are our sweet friends that went with us. They make me laugh and we love our friendship with them. We laugh with them ALL THE TIME.

Only in Nashville....don't you love what this says?? And, yes, I took it right in the bathroom stall!

Another weird horse inside the Wildhorse Saloon. This is where we watched the big Florida/Alabama game. Everywhere was so crowded so this is where we ended up.
Now, Jenny would just die if she knew I posted this picture!!! Don't you love it?! We were all about seeing just how big we could get our hair. And, then she struck a pose. And, then I couldn't quit singing that Madonna song, "Vogue." That might have been the most annoying.
And, here I am with my wonderful husband. I met him when he was 24 and now he is all grown up. Maybe. :) He is the best thing that ever happened to me. I love him with all my heart and am so grateful that God brought this man into my life when I least expected it.
Have a great day, friends. Slow down and enjoy this season of Christmas. Pull back from those things that keep you from truly enjoying this magnificent season!
Hugs and blessings and Merry Christmas!!

Everybody has to have a picture made at the Wild Horse! I love this pic of you and the hubs....too cute! And your hair is NOT big....I was kind of disappointed by that ;-) It looks very good, but I want to see some big old Nashville hair!!!

LOVE the pictures!

I am totally enjoying the season. The girl and I are battling like the civil war but it does have it's bonuses...as I sit here checking all my bloggy bff's, she is in the living vacuuming, aka sucking up.

Anyhoo...I met my guy when he was 17 and I was 15. And here we still are...ONLY due to God, trust me!

Love ya.

Fran, how funny that it just occurred to me that I have NEVER been to your blog or if I have it has been a very, very long time.

How can that be...I mean really!

Anyway, I loved your "Nashville" post and I'm just thinking that one day there will be a Nashville Siesta meet-up and we can all hang out downtown together!

Where is YOUR big hair picture???

And the picture with your husband is just awesome!! You look so beautiful and the two of you look so sweet together!!!

Have a great weekend! Guess what? We got 2 1/2 inches of snow last night!! I haven't posted pics yet but plan on doing that this afternoon. Cleaning house right now for company tomorrow!

Love ya, girl!

What fun you all had. Loved the pictures. I don't think I can do the Boomama this year since we'll be gone for a few days. I'm scrambling, girl--lots to do. Merry, merry Christmas Fran. I know it's going to be a great one with your sweet family. Love, Annette

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
