Three COOL Things.......

1. Went to a wedding Friday night with the Englishman and Soccer Girl. It was beautiful and they had the COOLEST photo booth there. They asked everyone to use it so you had a souvenir picture and they had one for their wedding Scrapbook. The Englishman is cracking me up in these pictures because he thought we should all make goofy faces while SG and I thought we should look pretty OF COURSE... LOL

2. I bought a new pair of jeans today and I love them. Why is this COOL you ask? Well, let me tell you. Any full figured gal can attest to the fact getting jeans to fit that look good (look thinner is the ultimate goal) are comfy (a goal but not necessarily a must) and not be $100 or close can sometimes be difficult. I got a pair today that look good, feel good and were only $30.00.. WAY COOL!!!!

3.We leave for England on Friday!!!! This is super exciting and super duper COOL!!!

P.S Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister. I hope you had an awesome day!!!!

So I am FORTY!!! Yes, I celebrated the big 40 this past weekend. Pictures are from my Birthday dinner where I was joined by my Aunt, Mom, Best Friend and her family, and the Englishman and our girls. It was a nice day. We are gearing up for Mighty Mouths Sectionals in Crystal River this weekend she is very excited. I also have a wedding to attend on Friday night. Then in nine days we wil be boarding a plane to go to England. Busy, Busy, Busy, but then again I wouldn't have it any other way.

District 5 Champions and the Countdown to England.

Mighty Mouth's softball team won districts last night. She is so excited!!! They play in Crystal River in two weeks. In three weeks we will be getting ready to board a plane for England. The Englishman is so excited and I am so excited for him. Sometimes I forget how hard it must be to live so far away from your family. I cannot imagine living so far from my family especially my Mom. Early in our marriage the plan was to live in England after a few years of living here. Of course once we had children and established ourselves in jobs, schools, and mortgage payments that never happened. I used to ask the Englishman if he still wanted to go back always assuring him that we would make it happen if he really wanted to. He has always told me no and I have always said a silent prayer of thanks for that. We are very lucky that his Mum and Dad have always been able to visit once a year. His sisters and their families making it here when they can too. My children have wonderful memories of our last trip to England five years ago and cannot wait to stay at Nan's and Grandad's. They are proud of the fact that their Dad is from England and that in turn they are half English. And although they probably wouldn't admit it they love it when their friends say "I love your Dad's accent, it is so cool."

We are heading to Orlando to celebrate the 4th. Should be a nice time. My Aunt is treating us to a few days in her timeshare. So once again the poor Englishman will be surrounded by women (his lot in life lol) Myself, our girls, my Mom and my Aunt.

Wish him luck and have a wonderful 4th as we celebrate our independence from those AWFUL English people....(SMILE)
