Mamaw's Fast

Mamaw(aka: My mom who doesn’t read my blog)just got the high speed cable internet. She’s flying fast all over the world wide interweb. She’s making PW’s tomato soup. (She would want me to tell you she didn't include the cooking Sherry.) She’s reading blogs about crafting. She’s keeping up with Big and Boo. She’s watching funny things on YouTube. And of course, she’s reading her favorite blog. She would like Teresa to see this video and implement what she has learned at her next choir practice.

P.S. I’ve been a little slow with the blogging. I have things to blog…I’ve just been a little short on time and I have a headache. This is the best I can do today. And really people, the most you can expect from me is once a week. Don’t waste your cable internet energy on checking my blog everyday….you will just be disappointed. Coming soon...world's largest stack of onion rings.

Going to get my nails "did"

I got this from someone else's blog. So funny and all of the above has happened to me. If I walk into a nail salon in Michigan they will say to me, "how you sister?" And the crooked nail incident--Never tell them your nail is crooked if you want to keep your fingers. Sooo funny!

Got Biscuits?

Today was Lawnmower Man's Birthday. We took him to eat at one of his favorite places...

I walked up to the counter to give them our name and Carol Fay the Biscuit Lady was the name taker. I don't like to bug famous people so I gave her my name and I sat down. And yes, she is famous. If you make really great southern food on TV that makes you famous in my book. Lawnmower Man did not sit down. He went right up to the counter and started talking to the Biscuit Lady and this was their conversation...

Lawnmower Man: Who puts pepper on a biscuit???? (really loud)
Biscuit Lady: I was robbed! Can you believe that.
Lawnmower Man: Can I get my picture taken with you? It's my birthday! (really loud)
Biscuit Lady: Sure! Here ya have it...

Could the man look any happier? I guess I need to start making biscuits.
If you don't know about the pepper biscuit incident you can watch it on the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay. (Feb 21 @ 6:30 central time) Please know that the Biscuit Lady is very bitter about this and I really don't think that Lawnmower Man should have brought it up.

Enough about him and the birthday. This is what I had to eat...

Fried chicken, creamed corn and green beans. Yes, I ordered two vegetables. I don't know what came over me. I should have ordered the mac & cheese. Are you hungry yet? The people at the next table were northerners and we snickered when the man asked the waitress, "What's fried okra?" (That used to be us.)

We came home so that Lawnmower Man could open his presents and have his cake. This is the cake that he picked out...

I was a little shocked by his chocolate choice. He usually picks a pie with fruit.(Yuck!) I guess the strawberries won him over. Or he knows how much his wife really loves chocolate cake.

Me and Lil'Nanny snuck into the gift shop and got him this t-shirt. We wanted him to always remember the day he met the Biscuit Lady.

A Whole Buncha Nothing

1) If you see me sitting at a red light, behind four parked cars in the Spring Hill Cracker Barrel area. Please pull up beside me and tell me. I'm clueless that the cars in front of me are empty. The workers park their cars in the right turn lane. I don't know why this is allowed to happen. I also know that I'm not the only one that did this yesterday. I may have been the only one sitting there, looking in the mirror, putting on lipgloss, but I know that I wasn't the only one that did this. Thank you, RE for pointing this out to me. I probably would have been there all day:)

2) Oh, yes, I've been here again. I had the Smokehouse Breakfast again. Next time I'm getting the Dumplins. I told Lawnmower Man that I needed to go again. I need to make sure they stay in business.
Please note: You will have to ask for a straw. They will not give you one. You have to ask for it. They do not keep them in their apron pockets because it is not sanitary. That was a random CB fact. These are the things you learn when you go to CB twice in four days.

3) Do you realize that in about 3 weeks the Super Target will be open. I think I will be at the grand opening or maybe they will let me come a few days early and make sure that everything is working okay. If you hear that they are going to open a few days early...please let me know. I'm going to go "grocery shopping" there. Not really, I'm going to go look at all the fun stuff and throw some lunchbox snacks and laundry detergent in the cart, so that it looks like I use my time wisely.

4) I had to delete the Adventure with Big Nanny post because of technical difficulties. I'm not sure what the difficulties were because I'm not technical. Issues with picture sizes. If you can tell me what I'm doing wrong. Call me.

5)If you are reading this blog, please leave me a comment. Even if I don't know your reading the blog...I'm okay with it. Just leave me a comment. Even you Radke. I saw the post you deleted last week.

I Feel Guilty Now

I just got home from somewhere special. I feel guilty that I didn't tell you or invite you to come along. It was oh such a very fun place. I wasn't sure I could invite extra people and I know that most of you don't eat dinner at 4 p.m. It was very special. I was going to take pictures of the deliciousness, but my camera battery was dead. We were treated like VIPs. They told us hello, welcome, good-bye, come back, can we take that off your table, can we refill your drink, etc. at least fifty times. When I ate my very last bite I thought of you. I should have called you. It's too late now and I can't correct it. Please accept my apologies for not taking you here. You can go there on Monday, February 11. If you go on Monday call me because I want to have this. Don't try to go there now, you can't. You have to wait until Monday.

I have to go now because there is a take out box of Coca-Cola Cake calling my name.

Happy Blogaversary to Me!

Tomorrow is my blogaversary. I didn’t even know that this was happening until my friend Teresa asked me about it earlier today. Yes, we talk blogs all the time. We are a little over the top with the obsessive blog talk. So I looked back and found that it was February 3, 2007. I thought I would get myself a blogaversary gift. So I got my blog pimped by Jennisa’s Bloggie Designs.

Back in the fall I told my friends that I wanted a blog design and they laughed hysterically because at that time I only blogged once every three months. I knew this fact. I just wanted it to look pretty when my four blog readers came to visit. I have been rather intimidated by the entire blogging process. I’m starting to get the hang of it and I’m realizing that it’s just about daily life. For some it’s about daily life…for my friend Teresa it will be her profession one day and she will be hangin’ with my fake BFF's Big and Boo. She will forget about me and my silly little nanny blog. She will not have time for endless chatter about blogs because she will have to spend the whole day doing podcasts with the Mamas. I will be jealous like Jan Brady. Teresa, Teresa, Teresa.

Anyhoo, I hope you like my new look. Jennisa is wonderful. This was a very simple process and she has the cutest digital kits to choose from. I hope you will go over and check her out. She is super fast and affordable. I told her that my favorite color was pink and I wanted it to be sassy and whimsical. What I want to know is? Does this blog look like me?

This Just In

I went to the Hair Whisperer yesterday. He gave me some big news and told me that I was the first of the girls to know. He knows that I love to be the first to know.

He's moving to a new location. If you have an appointment with him, you should continue to go to the old place until he calls to tell you he is at the new place. He has a little time left at the old location. I have to say that I'm going to miss the old location. He was excited about his new move and I didn't have the heart to tell him how much I loved his current place. It's private. It's quiet. It's decorated cute. I don't have to be intimidated by the snobby staff. It has been my most favorite hair place ever. Change must happen.

Here is the new location:

P.S. I do realize that I looked like a kook when I was trying to take these pictures, but this is what the world of blogging has done to me.
