Best website ever!

So everyone does it, but every once in a while work just gets to you and you have to take a 5-minute mental break to make sure your head doesn't implode. Or at least I do. I love my job, but sometimes I get so overwhelmed and so stressed, that it's better for me to take a step back and take a small break so I can approach a task from a different angle. Admit it...you know what I mean! Anyway, I have found the greatest blog website to help me take that break and get a good laugh. Some of these pictures are hysterical and I find myself laughing out loud at them. Some, however, are cheesy. But usually those are few and far between. So here is the website and it is about the funnest thing you'll ever see! Tons of different people post on it and I've attached one of my favorite images from it here:

Yeah, so I know you're thinking what's with all the misspelled words and it's called "doggie speak" and it's how these people who post think their dog (or cat for this version) would type and talk if they could. Kind of like baby talk on steroiods a little. I already have my sister hooked. Try it for a week...people post almost continuously on it. Tell me you don't find yourself doubled over a time or two!
So there is your good cheer for the day!

The House...by popular demand...

So, my mom and Jarren are both harassing me to put up more current pictures of the house progression. It's not really so much a progression anymore as a "finalizing little details" process since we're moving in two days! So here they are with minor descriptions. You can see better "before-and-after" transformation pictures on my facebook page. So here they are (P.S. you can make each picture bigger by clicking on it - maybe this is a trick the seasoned bloggers know about, however, I did not so there you go!):

Dining/Bar room (this is actually an old picture before the tile was grouted...I'll put a newer one up soon with no furniture eventually).

2 Kitchen pictures (see, there's the grouted tile!) with distressed cabinets and new knobs

2 pictures of the master bedroom

New master bathroom! Probably the biggest transformation!

New guest bathroom (made out of an island closet and wasted hallway)

...and what a weekend it was!

We had such a great weekend! Friday we took off for Birmingham around 5:45 for my friend Margaret's Alphabet shower. I'm a bridesmaid in her wedding and couldn't be happier about it! We had such a blast catching up with friends of mine from the good old ADPi days - Alise, Shelley, Katie and more. A few too many glasses of wine made the car ride home a snap for me (I slept the WHOLE way) but poor J had to drive us home and we didn't leave until after 11:30 and didn't get home until after midnight. He's such a good hubby for taking care of me like that... : )
This is Alise and I catching up at The Wine Bar in Mountain Brook

And J and I! Blonde headed babies in our future...I can see it!
The ADPi's at the shower!

The sweet couple!
With the Bride-to-beSo all day Saturday and all day Sunday (we even had to miss church - sad!) we worked in the house because...we're moving THIS FRIDAY! We're finally going to be enjoying all of our hard work as of this Friday and we're thrilled. Hopefully the next time I post we will be living in the house with our furniture in there. No promise that boxes will be all the way unpacked by Monday, but you know me, I'll sure try! YEA!!!

Dancing with the Stars - GO MELISSA!

So tonight is Dancing with the Stars, which I follow every season! I'm a HUGE Melissa fan this season, too. Not just because of The Bachelor and the fact that she had her heart broken on national TV, but because she really is a great dancer. So to everyone who reads this...vote for Melissa!

So since my last post, things have changed on our move-in date. We're moving March 27th now and it's not changing because I've already asked off of work. So it's done! : ) Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Nothing new to report...until next time...
