Anniversary Weekend

Wade and I drove to Chicago last night after the barbeque. Wade tried to surprise me with a trip to Chick-fil-A (the only one near us is about 30 miles south of Milwaukee), but when we got to the address we realized it must be in the mall, which was closed. There was a Dairy…

Ribs

A few months ago I wrote about a couple we met through the craig’s list in a post. I got a call a few days ago from Mary asking us over for barbeque this weekend. Wade and I met 9 of their 10 kids, a nephew, and two other families and their children. We had…

3 in 4

Wade and I are celebrating our delayed anniversary this weekend. My gift was to replace Wade’s wedding ring. The wooden one went missing about six months ago. I walked into the jewlery store and the woman helping me was so excited I was getting married I had to tell her this was a replacement. When…

    Give that boy a necklace to put it on!!

    That’s hilarious.

    Em’s dad lost his when he was playing baseball with Em’s brother a long time ago. They found it a long time later and he’s since refused to wear it…he just keeps it on a chain out of fear of losing it again.

    Mine’s too stinking tight to fall off…of course I have fat knuckles!

    Wade takes his off every time he sits down. He also empties his pockets of everything and makes a nice pile. The problem is the ring is small enough to get left behind or to roll off. Oh well, it’s just a part of being married to Wade.

Popsicles

I have rediscovered an old favorite. I don’t remember when in my life I enjoyed these popsicles, but I know I did. I started thinking about them on Tuesday, but have been too lazy to go to the grocery for them. Wade took me to Moe’s tonight and agreed to stop for the popsicles on…

Baby Update

I had an ultrasound done last week and we got the results today. Everything looks good. There don’t appear to be any of the genetic disorders that they tested for. It was very surreal having the ultrasound done. I see the baby moving and kicking, but I don’t feel anything at all. Heck, at this…

Welcome to Moe’s

I never ate at Moe’s in Atlanta, but when one opened in Anderson I fell in love. I could eat their nachos every day of the week. Then we moved to Milwaukee and I thought I said good-bye. When we were looking at houses WAY outside of Milwaukee we found a Moe’s. The only two…

    That was one of my favorite restaurants in Birmingham, and now there’s one in Marion, IL. “WELCOME TO MOE’S!!!” HAHA–I keep hoping they’ll put one in Paducah soon, like the rumors say is happening. I am like you with the nachos! And I love all the names of the menu items. Too funny!

    This is too weird–one of my “RECAPTCHA” words I have to type is “Marion”.

    I saw Moe’s in Marion last time I took the train in to visit. I’ve already told mom that I have to eat there when I come into town in September. Nachos! Nachos!

    I just had Moe’s for the first time about 2 weeks ago…GREAT STUFF. Took us forever to figure out what to order, but we both thought what we had was excellent and great for the price.

    Who would have thunk in tiny Ashland, KY.

Sometimes It Is a MarkUp

In the past three years I have bought a lot of paint. In general I like Depot’s better than Lowe’s. I can’t really tell a difference in the latex I bought from Sherwin Williams and it costs quite a bit more. However, Sherwin Williams does have some things that the others don’t – knowledgeable staff,…

Olympic Fever

Wade and I don’t have cable, but we do get most of the basic channels that have our favorite shows. We also have TiVo so we don’t spend a lot of time just channel surfing. We’ve been shocked at how much we have enjoyed watching the Olympics. Neither one of us can remember ever watching…
