Sooo. My birthday was yesterday but we will talk about that tomorrow. I want to dig right in to what I did on St. Patricks Day. YUMM

So I told you I wanted a Shamrock Shake from McDonalds. Well I got it!!!  Here we go 🙂

So we run some errands first and then decide it is ShAkE time. OO so exciting. We type in McDonalds into the ol Garmin and take off. We start driving a bit and realize we have entered the ghetto, after passing 3 Burger Kings and one Wendy’s. It was a little scary but as you can see from the above pic, we were pretty stoked to be waiting in the drive thru! OO the anticipation, can you just see it on our faces?

OO there it is in all of its glory. It has also dressed up a bit since the last time I have seen it. It got a clear cup, whipped cream, and two cherries! OOOO La La! Fancy!

After we chug… literally chug down out shakes we make our way home and start dinner… because who couldn’t eat after downing 450 calories? Well Trent talked me in to trying this sandwich called a Reuben. For me never have eating one, I knew how to make it somehow?! I seriously have no clue how I knew what was on the sandwich and how to make it. While I was making the sandwich Trent was busy on our homemade Mojito’s!
There he is shaking things up for us! These Mojito’s were honestly some of the best drinks I have had in a long time. They tasted so fresh and so summery.. OO I just loved it. Here is the final product!

SO this was my beautiful St. Patricks day. It was delish and I had such a fun day!!!

It is a Dogs Life

SO I hope you all are doing so well. I am doing Grrrreat!   

Yesterday I went to work and it was a bit of a different day for me.  One of the guys I work with brought his dog into work with him because his hotel room was being cleaned.  Well the morning started off fine with the dog, she was a bit jumpy but other than that no big deal.  Mid morning I had to go to t he bathroom, so I figured she would have to go as well. I decided to take her out with me and that went fine until she heard her daddy laughing. She quickly ran away from me to go look for him. NOT A GOOD IDEA IN THE SWAMP!  I am screaming at her she is paying no mind to me. I finally get ahold of her and put her back inside.  Well know she knows her daddy is around and will not stop crying.  Would you like to see what I let her do so she would let me work?

ImageSo she stood up there for the rest of the day so she could look out the window and see her daddy. I got some work done and every left happy 🙂  

I thought it was funny so I thought I would share 🙂

Here you go you guys!

SO let me first say Newark Airport is horrible.  There were zero signs for long term parking, we got to short term parking and it said $33 a day.. we said NO WAY.  We found the road that went to Long Term parking and it was 3 miles away from the airport…. We park, get on the shuttle bus, look at our tickets and it says United Airlines (US Airways)… sooo that is a bit confusing. We get dropped off at United, put our passport in the self check in slot and get told we do not have a flight there.  We walk up to the counter and ask where the US Airways counter was (it is a few stops back)..There were about 7 woman behind the counter that completely ignored us to look at baby pics on an iPhone.  Great customer service… NOT .  Either way we made it on our plane and landed in the BAHAMAS!

This is the view from our room! Simply beautiful. Trent and I had our own room and Mom and Lindy had their own room. We got there and went straight down to lay out for the night. However, Mom had no clue and we (Trent, Lindy, and I) brought stuff down to decorate the room for Mom’s 50th birthday! The next morning I after breakfast, I say I need to go upstairs for some personal time, Lindy says she does as well. So her and I go up stairs and get the room decorated, while Trent kept mom busy! Here is the result.

We also put the Happy Birthday paper around the mirrors and had caution over the hill tape on the entryway door, which later we made into a sash for mom to where out. Instead of cake we brought down Birthday Cake Oreos! Those things are delish. We also had 50 sucks suckers and an “Aged to Perfection…..Again” Birthday pin. It was a lot of fun and we went out to eat, went to the casino, won $30 bucks.. which Trent lost for me 🙂 Hahaha. And then went to Karoke and had the whole place sing Happy Birthday to her! It was wonderful and I think we all had such a great time.

The next day we went on a Booze Cruise. Which was a little more cruise than booze…. well for the first 2 hours. We got to go scuba diving and it was my first time. So I was going along with Trent and Mom when all of a sudden I look around and no one is with me. Like out of 60 people all of a sudden I am ALONE. I put my head in the water and there is a school of fish! ALl I can think of is “Oh my gosh, I have sparkle nail polish on my toes and nails… they are going to think I am food and eat me!” I start thrashing around like an idiot and then find Trent and yell at him for leaving me to be bit by crazy fish in the ocean 🙂 Hahaha Here is a pic of that! You will wonder how I was able to be all alone, but I assure you it happened.

We had a wonderful time and spent most of it on the beach, reading books, swimming in the ocean, and just enjoying our time together as a family. I am so blessed to have a great family and am blessed to have married into a family who loves me and really treats me as their own.

Hey everyone. I am back from my vacation but I am not going to talk about it today. I will try to talk about it soon and show pics soon .. BUT I have more pressing thing to share with you.


If you have children that can take, send, and receive pic messages please read.

There is this kid I know… let us call him John.  When he was in high school, he was a good looking kid, got good grades, played football. He was your all around American boy. When he was a senior and 17 there was this freshmen girl who was 14. She wanted John to be her boyfriend. She sent him naked pics of herself on the phone.  He did not ask for them, he did not respond to them, he did nothing. However, he did not delete them off his phone and when his best friend mentioned he also got some pics from her, they showed one another and probably a couple other boys. 

Well, somehow the cops found out about the pics. Since she is a minor it is considered child porn. Her family did not want to prosecute, but the FBI did.  He was able to graduate high school, go to college, and has a job. The case came up and he and his friend (who also received the text) are going to jail for 15 years and have to file a sex offender and child predator for the rest of their lives.  The girl even said she would testify that she did it to get the boys to like her, but it did not matter. 

Tell your kids that if they should EVER receive a naked pic of a fellow student or boyfriend even, that they can go to jail. It is real and it is happening. One pic received can ruin your life completely.  So sad.

ImageThis pic is from Fort Lauderdale when we were there for my sisters wedding.


So guys here we are. I am leaving tomorrow morning on an Air Plane and will be in the Bahamas by 12:30… so Right now I will have been there for a couple hours. I am getting excited!!

Did I mention the reason we are going is for Momma Natalie’s (Trent’s mom) 50th Birthday!  So Lindy (Trents sis) and I got some decorations to decorate the room up.  I made some paper rosettes in black, green, silver, and sparkle green.  I got some suckers that say 50 sucks. I got some confetti that says 50 in it. Lindy picked up some tape that said Caution Over the Hill.  We are so ready for it.  Trent thinks I go a little over board on the decorations, but you know me. I think that is how people feel special.  I mean who doesn’t want there to be a little fan fare for their special day?  I do and thats why I do it for myself on my special day 🙂 HAHA  (which is coming up on the 21st)  In case you are wondering, this trip is also my birthday gift. We are not telling his mom or sis or anything that this is what we are doing for me too, BUT I will know and that makes it special for me. It just needs to be our little secret 🙂 No one wants to share their day, especially their 50th… But this trip is a little too expensive not to have it be my gift. Ya know what I mean?

I did really well though on not going and buying anything new for the trip.  Usually, I am all for picking up a new swim suit, tank top, shorts.. something.  BUT I am really trying not to be a huge consumer of things, especially when I have those things. I have shorts.. now are they flattering.. no… but they are age appropriate length wise and it took me around 2 years to find them. Actually I am wearing them in the pic above!  I think they are just too big, but the size smaller was just too tight.. MOVING ON!

I am super excited and need to get things packed and my house cleaned. Trent makes fun of me cause I have to have the house clean before we leave.  Maybe he laughs at my reason for doing it which is: If we die and when people have to come to the house to get our things, I want them to know you did not live in a pig pen.  I want them to know I was clean, the bed was made and the laundry was complete. It is important to me.  

HAHa. I am really a nut, but it is how I think. No one would blame Trent for our house being  a mess.  They would blame me and my name would go down in history as the wife who did not care what her house looked like. Poor Trent!  

So that is what is going on in the M household tonight. Wish me luck on my flight and I will see you all on Tuesday!!

Oh my goodness. Since I have been working from home I am able to listen to who I want on the radio, watch what I want on TV, and so on. I am going to tell you something though, it kind of gets me going. I am like really waiting for someone to pick a fight with me on some issues. It is crazy!  A woman in my parents town died yesterday at the gas station because she allowed some person to use her cell phone. You got Ms. Fluke who picked to go to a Catholic school, say that they should have to pay for her sexual decisions (by the way the Catholic Church does give birth control to those who need it for other medical reasons), you just have so much noise going on. It is too much.

So I am going to focus on something positive cause right now I can do nothing about the negative. I am going to focus on my trip to the Bahamas. Did you know that we are leaving on THURSDAY!  I was on the phone with my sister the other day, talking about my bathing suit. She asked me “How do you look in your suit?” I said, well funny you should ask.  I looked in the mirror in the other day and the front I felt pretty ok about. I turned myself around and held a mirror and immediatly regretted this decision. Cheneille was like “Exactly what about your back do you not like?” I said, I have two rolls. One on each side. I am afraid my top will get stuck in one, and then what am I going to do? Cheneille said “I KNOW, I have the same problem. I have gained 13 pounds since I got married.  Then I told myself, no big deal. Jenna got fat when she got married.” 

Let us for a moment look at that last sentence.  Ok she gained 13 pounds. It happens when you are happy and have good food around you. I do not see though how she made the connection to my weight. Completely unhelpful! HAHA

Anyhow, she wanted to skype with me so she could see me in my bathing suit. I told her no, she told me yes, and I called my mom and said Cheneille wants to see me in my swim suit. My mom said, that does not sound like a good idea. I went ahead and showed her anyhow. I figured if I am not going to show my sister, then I need to go buy different suites.. b ecause people will see me in them. I showed her. She was nice about it.  Either way bathing suit season just sucks. No other time in your life do you know exactly where your body stands and how sad it looks. HAHAHA!

It is only going to be 72 with 25mph winds  in the Bahamas. So I may not be in it for that long anyhow.
