1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it?
I was obsessed with The Little Mermaid. I had everything. But, no I do not have any of it today.

2. Do you dream in color?
Yes, I do.

3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller?
5'2 - I do wish I had longer legs, but then again I don't. Mr. Wonderful isn't the tallest man in the world, so I'm okay with my height.

Jason Aldean - HIS voice is so sexy!

5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot?

Tuesday Three

OF COURSE it's that time again!
My B.O.R.I.N.G Tuesday just turned into MADD fun!
BIG Thanks to the NINE bloggers who participated in last weeks Tuesday Three with ME!
I loved, loved, LOVED reading each of your experiences! Hopefully today, I will have the same nine come back + some.

So, who's iching to see what's in store for today?
Well, I'm SUPER stoked to tell ya!
ever since I was a little girl, I've been in love with fairy tales, dreams, stories, & so on.... One of the many characteristics of my personality is I love to sit and listen to any story of any kind. [Well, most of them] Whether it's your Wedding Day or how he proposed [my favorite], family problems or heartbreaks, Or where you grew up and what you were like as a kid. I like people in general and getting to know strangers. Thanks to my A.D.D. & A.D.H.D I became very good at it... then again, if it was boring my attention span became weak!
So this weeks Tuesday Three is:

Take me to your town, the one you live in now, or the one you're from... Share THREE things we would do.

My Three: 
If you came to MY town we would...


  or maybe even Redneck Water Skiing

2. I'd teach you how to play our famous game, Cornhole.
[click to see how to play]
Our family & friends have cookouts often.
Cornhole replaced Horseshoes a couple years back.




3. I'd take you on a REAL camping trip.
View my Album HERE and you'll see me roasting hotdogs over the campfire & climibing trees.

Funny how I say this... before moving here [before I met Aaron]Camping was a Motorhome.
It still is, only sometimes!
Okay, so I reeeeallly wanted to take you Downtown Savannah, but that's NOT my hometown. SO much more to do in Savannah!
My Town is VERY small. So small it has ONE red light.
 A couple of years ago, we were blessed with a Subway & McDonalds. Yay!!! Subway comes in handy!

We are a small town.
We are a country town.
We are friends with everyone.

Alright... guess what?

Bare with me, I love you all! :) Happy Monday!

Party Planning & Monday Minute

Good Morning People! Blah, it's Monday. Boy, did I have a really tough time getting up this morning. Although my weekend was wonderful, it flew by in a hurry!

For the past few weeks, I've been doing a lot of planning & [preparing. Friends of ours, Kristie & Michael, just built their first home. So, about a month and a half ago, Kristie's girlfriend, Sara asked if I was interested in throwing a house warming with her. Of Course!!!! So, we planned it for this past Saturday, the 24th. It was a wonderful turn out.

Kristie & Michael got married  05.18.08. They were High School Sweethearts, and have lived in the same town their entire lives. Michael is a contractor for Gulf Steam while Kristie is entering her second year of teaching Kindergarten. She's outstanding. They started building this year around January-February.

The Morning of the party.
Sara & myself went to their house to set up & prepare.
 Sara was in charge of the invitations, our gift, a plates, cups, forks, etc.
We also decided to get this photo framed, and have it matted where the guest could sign. I was in charge of the food. They preferred Hamburgers & Hotdogs. So we did so, plus backed beans,pasta salad, a fruit tray, variety of dips & Chips and then dessert. 

[The Morning before the party]
Me, preparing the Fruit Kabobs
Mrs. Cheryl, Kristie's wonderful mother also came to help.
Sara & I thought a monogrammed bucket would be a great idea to get for the couple and to hold wine & beer. Although, when the time came... We just used a cooler.
Here's a photo of it & the picture of the house framed.

[I was proud of the Fruit Dish...]
The Hosts with the NEW HOMEOWNERS
Sara, Michael, Kristie, & Myself

Again, it couldn't have turned out better. With friends, family, & great help... the party couldn't have been bad if we wanted it to. 
Another Chapter in their lives has been created!
Congratulations to Kristie & Michael!
Check out Kristie's Kindergarten Blog

Next Up....
This week I'm preparing for a lingerie shower for another friend of mine
Here's a sneak peak of the hand made invitations.

Monday Minute

Michelle, from Mommy Loves Stilettos participated in Monday Minute this morning, so after reading her post, I figured I'd play for the first time.  Welcoming myself as a participant to Monday Minute.. Here is goes!

To Play, Copy the questions, post them, and link up!

Who is your “what-if” person {What-if person being what if I married this person or am now in a relationship with “this” person}?
No way! I can honest say I do not have a what-if person. I've weeding those questions and guilty thoughts out a loooong time ago!

What is your nickname?
Most people call me Jess.  VERY rarely do I hear Aaron say my name. He has lots of names for me, they change daily, but you will hear him call me j,  and at home it's j or snookums.

If you could choose how you died, how would you like to die?
I don't like this question or talking about it. It really freaks me out. But, my answer is fast. Like everyone else, I do NOT want to suffer.

If you could have named yourself, which name would you have picked?
I don't really know. There are a ton of names I really like. Jessica is TOO popular, but I don't look like anything but a Jessica.

Who were you named after or for what reason did your parents choose your name?
My name was going to be Jennifer all the way until the day I was born. I'm not named after anyone, but my Dad just decided Jessica Lynn was the right name.

Life without girlfriends = LAME

I believe that everyone woman should keep their girlfriends close by their side
No one comprehends the reasons why, like your sisters & your ladies.
Yes, Mr. Wonderful understands me 99.999%.
But my girlfriends understand me 100% + some.
Plus, I can't complain about him to him!
No Way! Okay, maybe sometimes...
But you know what I mean.

My Friends are very special to me.
I try to make it a point to never miss anything.
Sometimes it's hard.
 I do not have Children, so it's easier than most.
But, Some of my girlfriends have children, and I love being with them too.
If I have to sit at the house with their littles one, I will & I love it.

Of course I love to be with Aaron!
But, I make it madatory that I keep my ladies nights & girl talks up to date.
No matter what the age is.
Sweet 16, 21st Birthday, Having Children, Getting Married, First Dates, ♥Falling in Love,
 Divorces, New Jobs, Building Houses, or Growing Old...
Whatever it is... You should NEVER miss it.
Plus, Ladies know how to have the BEST kind of fun.
I too, believe that Men should have their nights with just the men!
[They appreciate it, and they learn to appreciate you more]

Besides My. 25th. Birthday, you haven't seen much of my ladies or how we like to have fun.
Well, through Pictures, you will see many different events & entertainment.
Pictures say 1000 words




These woman are a hugh part of my life, along with my family & Aaron!
I make it a point to spend as much time with them as I can.
Life is so lame without my girlfriends.
