Weird but funny

This is how people find my blog, Seriously? If you have Google Analytics you can find how people search keywords to find your blog.

Ok this one is easy because I talk about it every Monday.

"country boy" dating "city girl"
I would not have it any other way, but why the quotes? Are you not sure you are country boy or a city girl

"tried being a girl"
Again with the quotes! I am not sure I ever wrote about trying to be a girl, but this ain't no cross dressing blog! I may be private, but I am a girl. I am not trying at all.

duggar weedding pictures
This is exactly how it is spelled, in fact I got a lot of searches from my duggar post, also included in searches is
hate blogs about the duggars
That post was not a hate blog about the duggars!! It was strictly opinion!! Get it right!

Macramed jean short
The reason I used these words were from a quote from 40 year old virgin from this post. I guess someone was looking for a pair. They sure didn't find them here.
Someone searched and found my blog?!? Why would you use google to find google?

marriage proposal on stage with chuck wicks
I was proposed to in a much cooler way! Even though every time I hear "Stealing Cinderella" I tear up!!

Pictures of cute country boys
If you were looking for some, you will only find one here. That is my hubby!

He is the original country boy!!

I can only imagine what people are searching for on google. I am sure they are even more shocked to end up on my blog. But if you coming to visit, you could at least comment on your findings!!

Is it??

Ok It is 9:58 and someone is going home???



After so long, and I mean a long time!!!!! She is going home!!!!!!!


I have restored my faith in DWTS!!!! The show is not rigged!!!

I feel so giddy!!


Now I need to find someone else to get rid of.

Maybe Samantha Harris? She is really annoying!

This is the end!!

I can feel it, and I have a very big hunch that Cloris Leachman is going home!! I know the show just started but the judges gave her a 15!!! A 15! Who gets by when you have such a low score.

Seriously if she doesn't, then it is rigged. I think I should write a letter to DWTS, if this doesn't happen.

Mock Letter:

Dear DWTS(I use the abbreviation because its cool and I am lazy):

Here we are at the halfway mark of DWTS and I have noticed that Cloris Leachman is still on the show. I know that you know she is over the age of 80. She can not move without her pro dancer putting her in place. She gets really mad when the judges don't like her. I can not believe that all her moves haven't made her drop dead.

I know DWTS that you are waiting for the big ratings boost of having an elderly woman drop dead on your show. Look at Julianne Hough!! She is having her appendix out, and she is getting number one blogging on TMZ!! Her freaking appendix!!!

DWTS how can you even look at yourself? Tom Beregeron you should be ashamed!! She could not even do the old school hip hop dancing!!

Next time you guys decide to have an elderly woman, why not try someone like Betty White or Nancy Reagan. I hear that they shake a tail feather.

Your adoring and annoyed fan.

P.S. If she gets kicked off tonight, please accept my apologies. If not I don't know how I can suffer through non-dancing Cloris Leachman DWTS.

I was going to go to sleep before the results came in, but I don't know how I can.

The Duggars

Duggars Pictures, Images and Photos

I am watching their new show, and I am amazed by this family. Their previous shows I always thought they were robotic and Amish. But their new show is more like Jon and Kate plus 8. The kids are really cute, and know how to speak in front of the camera.

Who cares that they only watch 7 hours of TV a month. I mean I am not saying I would want to be a part of their family, but if you grew up that way, you don't know what you are missing.

The oldest boy Josh really seems like he has his head on his shoulders. He proposed on their show.

But Josh's Fiance was wearing the same shirt as her mom when she was proposed too!! Wow!! That is something I would never do!

His fiance also looks like one of his sisters, I mean seriously!!!

When he asked her at Captain's D's, it was sweet, when she gave him the side hug.

They are saving their first kiss for their wedding day. That is nice!! It is very hard to do but to each his own. Again if you grew up that way!! I had friends a few years ago, that did the same thing, and it was awesome on their wedding day.

It was kind of awkward to watch. He asked her parents permission to hold her hand.

I really do like this show, and there is some things I do agree with, and some I don't. I have only watched a few shows, so I can not fully base my opinion on a couple shows!!!

They all have J names too!! They are bound to run out of names!!

The most awkward moment!

Yesterday my husband and I went over to take our niece and nephew to their grandparents. (husband's parents) The kids were going to a Trunk or Treat at the local church. Our little 3 year old niece is dressing up as Cinderella. She was just so cute as Cinderella. I thought we could put her hair up and be really cute like a princess.

My hubby was sleeping in the chair, and his mom and I were getting the kids ready. I needed a ponytail holder for my niece's hair. She told me they were in the top drawer in the bathroom, and to go ahead and get them.

I walk in to the hallway and look up and there is my father in law in his whity tightys. He was in the hallway walking betweenn the bedroom and the bathroom. I see him and I just stopped. I could not say anything!!! I just turn right around and go back to the living room.

My hubby's mom is asking whether I got the ponytail holder, and all I can do is laugh. I am laughing so hard I can't tell her what I saw. Finally I get it out that I saw her husband in his scivvies, and she is cracking up!!!

I tell my husband later and he just laughs at me.

Today we go over there, and they were getting ready to go to lunch. My hubby comes up behind me and says "My dad is changing if you want to go back there."

I was so embarassed, and I can never look him in the eye again!

This is getting serious!!

Cloris Leachman is STILL on DWTS!!!!!!!!!

I think next week, I might have to take drastic measures and vote for someone other than Cloris Leachman. I think that DWTS is trying to kill her. I think if she falls down dead on the dance floor, then she will bring up their ratings up!!! I really think it is rigged.

Who is seriously voting for Cloris.

I know this is my 4th or 5th rant about how Cloris is still on, but really??

Come On!!!

Step Aerobics!!

I did Step Aerobics in my gym tonight.

It hurt really bad! I have done step before but I obviously was doing at the wimpy gym. The instructor was doing moves that I had never seen before. I didn't think it was a expert class, but it was tough!!

I liked it though, but I need to pick up some endurance so that I can keep up with it.

I did feel very fat and pudgy. I think I was the only one with a red face and breathing heavy that I saw. I can't wear those tight workout gear, because I don't have the body to wear it yet. Maybe when I lose a few pounds.

I have some great pictures from my trip to Charlotte with my husband that you would not believe. So I hope I can get those up this week.

Ode to Cloris Leachman

This is to Mrs. D, who does not know who or what Cloris Leachman is about. A little biography of Cloris Leachman according to Wikipedia.

Cloris Leachman (born April 30, 1926) is an Academy Award-winning American actress of stage, film and television. She has won eight primetime Emmy Awards—more than any other female performer—and one Daytime Emmy Award. She won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in the 1971 film The Last Picture Show, though she is best known for playing the nosy neighbor Phyllis Lindstrom on the 1970s TV series The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and then later on the spinoff series, Phyllis. She also appeared in three Mel Brooks films, including Young Frankenstein.

Although I was not born when she was at her height of stardom. I do remember her. She took over for Mrs. Garrett on The Facts of Life.

This was when I watched Facts of Life. I may have been too young to understand the adult stories they were talking about but I remember Mrs. Garrett leaving and her sister Beverly Ann taking over for her. I am sure she has been in other things, but who really cares. She is on DWTS, and she really needs to go home.

I hope this helps Mrs. D!!!

Dancing with the stars

Ok I am hopped up on Benadryl, because I can't sleep at night, and that always seems to help.

I did not go to work today because I was tired and had a horrible headache from the lack of sleep.

Cloris Leachman is still on Dancing with the Stars! Really?? At least she was in the bottom two!! You guys know how much she gets on my nerves. I had a long weekend, because my hubby and I went to Charlotte to see Gary Allen. This is my hubby's favorite country singer. More post to come about that!!! I got some good pictures, that no one would believe unless you saw it!!

I will try to get more into posting this week!!

Adventures with Kids!

My hubby and I are barren. We have no kids and we are ok with that, but we have 2 nephews and 2 nieces, that we love very much.

This past weekend we had our first slumber party with the brother and sister team of Little girl (3) and little boy (5). They have names but for the sake of being private they will be known as Flower (girl) and Book (boy). There names mean something like their nickname.

Their mother needed some time to herself, she is a high school teacher and trying to get her master's degree. She had lots of papers to grade, and lots of term papers to write. She needs peace and quiet sometime.

Now we were supposed meet them at the famous Cracker Barrel, after my hubby and I had been at a college football game. A hot football game, where we sweated like pigs, and burned like ants under a microscope. We were tired to begin with, but we stuck to our plan.

We don't have toys at our house, because we don't have kids. But I happen to have Alvin and the Chipmunks. They call my hubby Uncle Bubba(isn't that sweet), and Flower only "sometimes" likes Uncle Bubba. She loves me though!

The first thing that Book said when he walked in was "Your house is dirty". Thanks even a 5 year old knows my house is not the cleanest on the block.

Flower decided that she was tired, and wanted to go to bed. I took her in our room and Book slept in the guest room, and hubby on the couch. Flower and I slept together. It was about 8:30 when we got into bed, and it was about 10:30 before she fell asleep. We talked for two hours while I dozed off on her every now and then. She finally falls asleep and I can finally rest.

It did not last long!!!! She woke up at 4:00 in the morning, and she was trying stand up and walk off the bed with her stuffed kitty cat. I had to grab her before she fell head first off the bed. She did not go back to sleep. So I decided to turn on the tv and find a kid movie, so she could fall back asleep. She did not, but I dozed off through the movie and try to make sure she didn't try to get out of bed again. I can Multi-Task! Once the first movie was over, she wanted to watch another one, and since it was only 5:30, I put on another one.

At 7:30 in the morning her brother got up and got in the bed with us. They were hungry. I woke hubby up and told him were going to McDonald's to get breakfast. We fed them, and let them play in the McDonald's playhouse. Then we took them to my hubby's parents house to let them have them for a while.

I was wore out!! I only spent 12 hours with them, and it felt like days!!!! I slept through lunch, and my hubby went to lunch with the family without me.

I don't know how you Mommas do it. I don't think I have the patience or the energy!!! I guess that comes when you pop that watermelon through a key hole, you feel that maternal instinct kick in. Although I do love the hugs and kisses I get when I see them! Just don't tell me my house is dirty, I know that already!

Go Home!!!!

Ok! The first week on Dancing with the Stars, Cloris Leachman was funny!! Now she is annoying!! She did not even dance on Monday Night!! She just walked around while her partner turned her around! She one jive step!!! How can they keep her on there.

I know she is old, but my goodness her walking around is not dancing! America wake up!!! Do you really want her around?

In other news, not much is happening.

I work, go to the gym(boo), go home, blog, sleep, Repeat!

Fall Party!!

Kimba at A Soft Place to Land is having a fall party.

I know Fall started like a month ago, but I finally got around to getting some pumpkins, and cute little fall things. I am not a big Halloween person, and I prefer summer to any other season. But I decided since this is my first Fall with my hubby that I would fix up the house. I only did a couple things, but I wanted so bad to be a part of the party!!

This is the island that I change monthly what I want in the middle. This is a bad picture. I stole this casserole dish from my aunt, and she has not asked for it back. It has been there with the top on it for a few weeks. Tonight I filled it with Michael's crafts store pumpkins that are half off!!

This is the centerpiece to my dining room. I have had those candles on my dining room since I got it. We never eat there, but I try to have something there. Good thing you did not see the rest of the table, because it has junk on it.

I know this is nothing spectacular, but its a start!!! I will take any tips or suggestions!!

I also bought a Fall flag for the porch! But its dark, and I don't want to take a picture, because Dancing with the Stars is on.

Our Proposal Story!!!

This weekend is one year after my husband asked me to marry him. I am not sure if have wrote about this before, but what a better time at the anniversary.

My husband had been planning this for about two months before he asked me, and it was very calculated. Let me tell you my side, and then I will tell you his side.

It was a Friday afternoon and my hubby asked me to come to his house after work because we were meeting friends at Miyabi's for dinner. Miyabi's is a Japanese restaurant where they cook the food in front of you(important later).

When I got to my hubby's house he told me to get into the car, because he had left a computer on a job site. He was very nervous, and he said he had to hurry and get that computer. It was about 25 minutes away, and we had to hurry to make dinner. Once we got to the job site, I could see the bulldozer, and my hubby got out. I am in the car not paying attention to anything, and thinking about whether I want chicken or steak at Miyabi's.

After a few seconds, I look out the window to my right and I see my hubby throwing a towel on the ground, and a box in his hands. I see him get on one knee and I jump out of the car crying!! When I get up to him, he says Will you.... and he turns me around, and this is what I see.

(Ok that is not the view I see, that was an airplane taking a picture, more on that later)

He took his bulldozer and wrote Marry Me in 40 foot letters against the side of a hill!! It was amazing, and I was in shock!! Of course I said yes!!

He went to my parent's house the night before and bought dinner and flowers for my parents and my grandma. He told me he was at a farmer's meeting and would not be able to see him. He also went shopping with his sister a few weeks before that for my ring. I was really mad at him because he was supposed to spend that day with me. But everything fell into place and I was absolutely shocked! We had been talking about marriage and I was ready to marry him. You know how girls are! I thought it was going to be a few more months away.

My hubby went to a local airport and had a pilot drive over and take pictures. Also the newspaper editor was flying over the marry me sign and wrote an editorial about it. I called him and told him the back story, and he printed another article about it. Actually a few magazines called us, but they were bulldozing magazines, not People or anything. It was an amazing time!!! It will always be in my heart as the most unique proposal.

If you are married, how were you proposed too?

Another Award!

Smile It's Becky! left me an award, and I don't have anybody to give it to. I will have to save it for a rainy day when I get more readers. Thanks Becky!

New Show

I was flipping through the channels last night, and I came across this show. It was on the Fine Living Channel and it was called "Whatever Martha". The premise of the show is Martha's daughter Alexis and her friend watch old clips from the Martha Stewart show. It's not clips from her new show, but the old one she use do it.

Now not only do they watch the show, but the mock everything about it! It is hilarious!!! Alexis talks about how her mom never loved her like she wanted her to, and she had to be perfect. As they watch this show they make fun of her clothes, her crafts, and the way she does things.

The best part is I beleive that it is produced by Martha Stewart herself!! I mean Martha would not let her old clips being shown without making some money.

I have no idea what time or day, but look for it on your DVR. Its FUNNY!!!

You Guys Like me, You really like me!!!

I went to work this morning, and as I was reading my daily blogs, I came across this blog award for little old me.

Mrs. D gave me this award and I was just flabergasted. She is my regular commenter, when mostly everyone else is sporadic. Thank you so much!!! I wrote a post a long time ago, about how no one commented on my blog. I deleted it because it was such a pity party, so when I finally got some readers, I was estastic!!! People that know me and don't know me read this blog. Now I know I am no Mama's Losin' it or Ashley's Closet, but this has truly made my day!

I want to give this award to Mrs. Bliss, because she gave me the next award, and she is newlywed like me!!

Then I went to Mrs. Bliss blog, and she had an award for me too!!!! I was absolutely shocked!!!! I can't believe it!!

This one had some rules so I was going to give this away to some people.

1. You may only choose five people/blogs to give the award to.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be a new follower of your blog or live in another part of the world.

Ok this might be a little hard. I don't have that many readers! Here goes nothing:

1. Mrs. D of course, she is my regualar commenter and a dedicated follower!! She is going to be excited, I think she has about 20 awards.

2. Weeksie50 at Smile! It's Becky, She follows my blog, and she has a great blog too!

3. Sarah at the Livingston Family: She has been my BFF since High school, and she started a blog, and I wanted to be just like her so I started a blog too!
