I know I have been absent lately. again.

We went to a Second Chance prom sponsored by a local radio station.  We had the best time.

See Examples:

If the pictures don’t prove it, we had a blast.  We were supposed to go with my friend and her fiancĂ©, but since that whole thing happened, she took a friend. 

I also am getting my wisdom teeth out.  I don’t want to, but I have been having persistent headaches due to my teeth.

Oh yeah, that is Salt and Pepa and we Pushed it. Pushed it good!

Never having them at all!


This weekend was a lazy weekend, where I could watch TV, clean house, go out to eat, cook dinner, and do whatever else I wanted. 

I had heard about this show on Discovery called “Freebirthing”, and I was intrigued because I like the show “I Didn’t know I was pregnant”, even though it is the scariest thing in the world.

Until now.

Let me give you the premise of “Freebirthing.”  It is where ordinary women decide to forgo doctors, midwives, medicine, and have the babies at home. unassisted. I saw the first lady have a baby with her 2 year old son watching from the end of the bed, while her one leg was thrown up in the air, and a head coming through!  Which I thought was pretty gross.  So I pushed Record, so my husband could see it later.  I did not watch the rest of it.

Until Later.

With my husband, and we are never having kids.  The second woman having a baby unassisted was way grosser.  She was buck naked, and in the doggy style position with her helper behind her.  She was screaming and making awful noises, THEN all of the sudden you hear this loud gush of liquid, and baby falls flat on the ground!!!!!!

That sound made me almost throw up.

Then I called my mother and asked if that really happened.  She said it does, but the pain goes away as soon as the baby comes out.  She had me at the hospital, naturally.  I am the youngest.

I told her I was not giving her grandchildren.

Although now I think it would be better if I didn’t know I was pregnant, so I would not have 9 months to think about it.  

I am scarred for life.

2 Days


2 blog posts in a week.  It is getting crazy up here!!  But I loved all the comments that you guys left about the wedding.

Seriously there is nothing else to the story.  My husband has tried to get some information since he still talks to him, but he won’t give him a reason for not EVER talking to her again.

But you know how boys are, they either don’t ask the right questions, or they don’t care. 

In other news, my husband is turning into the Mr. Wilson* of the neighborhood.  We live in a neighborhood that is out in the country.  We have a four wheeler problem.  Adults and kids ride their four wheelers all day long.

Hubby always says “If you own a four wheeler, you own the road,” whatever that means.  But the kids have been riding on a hill across from our house, and it drives my husband crazy.  The kids are actually causing erosion problems by riding on this hill. 

But every time he sees a kid get on that hill, he runs out and yells at them.  He is too cute though!  But seriously we have a epidemic of 4 wheelers.  Our neighbors also like to shoot off fireworks at 2:00 in the morning!  But that is another story!

*If you didn’t know Mr. Wilson is from the Sunday comic Dennis the Menace.

What I did this Summer.


So I know that I have been slack this summer on blogging.  I do have lots of funny and sad things that have happened this summer. So I am giving you the reader's digest of this summer.

Wedding Woes:

  • Remember back in March when I did the bridesmaid dress bracket.  You guys did such a good job at picking out a dress, that I did NOT even go with any of your suggestions.  Funny, huh?  Well I guess I should have because after I bought my dress, the wedding got cancelled.  Anyone want a Latte size 10 bridesmaid dress?
  • So the wedding got cancelled because the groom stopped talking to the bride.  He went on a cruise, and when he came back he never talked to her again.  They had been arguing but nothing huge.  She has not heard a word since June from him.  He is best friends with my husband, so that means I still have to see him.
  • The good thing out of this is that now the bride and I are way better friends than before the wedding got cancelled.
  • Another side note; they dated for FIVE years!!!

Wedding and Casinos:

  • My husband was a groomsman for another wedding this summer along with the above guy.  I had to spend the weekend with the no call groom.
  • Fun times!


  • Hubby and I decided to go to Cherokee for a little vacation.  We had a free room at Harrah's since my husband has a gambling problem. 
  • It was seriously the nicest room that I have ever stayed in.  When we came back to our room to go to bed, they had white robes and cookies laid out for us!
  • We also brought back triple the money that we took to the casino!!! Yay!


My niece's 1st Birthday:

  • My sweet niece is turning 1 on Thursday, so we had her party here for her.  She is the sweetest child.  There was not a single meltdown.
  • She has been walking for a month and a half already.


  • But she will not feed herself.  Its really cute that she will go to anybody who is eating and we just feed her.  She is like a cute little dog!

2nd Chance Prom:

  • The local radio station has an annual 2nd chance prom that they put on for the local community.  This event is in 2 weeks! 
  • We were going to go with the couple that cancelled their wedding, but now only the girl is coming.  She invited a friend. 
  • The music group that they hired for the prom is...wait for it......

Salt and Pepa!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I couldn’t find a picture, so imagine it)

  • I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!  It brings me back all the way to middle school with songs like Shoop, Push it, and What a man!!

  • Plus, I have always wanted to go to the prom with my husband!

Other than that we got nothing else!  I will make sure to put some pics up from our 2nd chance prom.

I Suck

I really do.

I have not wrote a single blog post since July 14th, and I am usually pretty good about keeping up.  I have just been lazy.  I have had a few things happen while I have been lazy.

My grandma had her 80th birthday party a couple of weeks ago, and the whole family came down for it.  I saw a lot of family that I had not seen in a good 10 years!!  There was a few people that I had saw that I have never met. 

I need to show you photographic evidence first before I tell you what a person with Alzheimer's said to me.


This is me with my cutie patootie niece!  That is the birthday girl in the back giving me the crazy eyes. 

Anyway this dress looks really bad on me, and I did not realize til I got to the party, where the following conversation took place:

Gma (grandma): AL, this is my granddaughter Melissa.

Me:  Nice to meet you!

AL (Alzheimer's lady): (pats my belly)  Aww your pregnant!!!!

Me: Umm No ma’am.

AL: Oh well you are just a little chubby!!

Me: say nothing but just walk away and go cry in the corner to my momma. 

Then I told my brother and my cousin what she said and they laughed at me.  Then the rest of the family found out, and then I could not enjoy 2 pieces with cake without someone saying: You really need to be eating that!

So that was a fun party. 

But then I see that picture and I say well I kind of do look pregnant!!

But before you get mad because I called her Alzheimer's patient, she also thought my uncle was a dentist but in reality his name is Dennis.
