Goodbye Irene

 Remnants of Irene
We had very minimal damage lots of leaves and a few branches
Parts of town were flooded.
Waiting to hear news of my brothers homestead in NC
They live in Beaufort NC, and evacuated to Raleigh
they are headed home today.
Hope everyone made out safely!
I know lots of people are still without power
Also curious about the status of the beach house we rented this year

Loved venturing outside to click a few photos
The colors of the leaves are so pretty.
Yesterday by the afternoon the sun was out and it ended up being a beautiful day. We spent the day cleaning up the outside picking up branches
and putting patio furniture back.

Stuck in my head

Had to share this
Okay so this song is stuck in my head...ughh..

Every channel on my radio plays it I think
I hear it on my ride to work, on my lunch break and the ride home
I used to hate it now I can't stop singing it

Everyday I'm shufflin...

Now it's going to be stuck in your head all day

Your welcome

Random Mix

My reading stack, I am currently reading The Help.
It's so good I can't wait to see the movie

My man and his owl onesie look at that belly

Short and sweet post today
My photos have nothing to do with my post.
Who likes a post without any pictures...right

It's been a rough two days at work my roomate who had Breast Cancer
22 months ago was in remission has just found out it has
reappeared and is in her liver.
Really makes you think about things.
Things can change in the blink of an eye.
Be thankful everyday for what you have
Cancer is no stranger to our family my stepmother had Lymphoma
and is currently in remission. We are extremely thankful for that.

County Fair

We had a great time at the QA County fair last week,
enjoyed a yummy chix dinner with sweet corn and watermelon
My girl tore up some corn, she finished hers and next thing I know
she's gnawing on mine. Then she went on a few rides, let
me correct that. She went on the slide 4 times no lie.
Mommy had to climb up those nice metal rickidy stairs 4 times.
Then the space ship rides 3 times, and bouncy house for a long time
We couldn't get her out., I even tried we'll give you ice cream if come
We finished off the night by getting an ice cream cone and checking out the animals. Glad the weather was decent. Baby slept the whole time, he never woke up to eat, so I messed up and instead of waking him I let him sleep. Big mistake ! We got stuck in traffic  leaving the parking lot and the wondeful
cop directly traffice let everyone go but me... ugh I sat there for 20 minutes or more baby cried most of that time. I tried to get the cop to let me turn into the parking lot to feed him and he would let me. Poor thing cried until I could get to a gas station to feed him in the car.. grr it was horrible.
While we were waiting for the cop to let us go, I tried giving him his pacifier
20 million times, but boyfriend was crazy hungry and didn't want that thing.
Ooh did I mention I was in the car by myself with just maddie and him.
Maddie who kept telling me police man looking at us mommy, police man
get me.. lol then it was mommy Dalton is
Anyway, enough about my horrible mom moment...

I am adding more goodies this week into my Etsy shop, so keep an eye
on it. I am also hosting a giveaway, so I am pretty excited about that.
