Working Date

The milkman and I rarely go on a date. Oh don't get me wrong we spend a lot of time together but actually dressing up all fancy and such doesn't happen that often. Most of the time we have a lot of what we call "working" dates. This week we had one. Since Ky went to preschool I rode along with the milkman to the sale barn in a town about an hour away. It is always so good to be able to talk with the milkman without being interrupted by the occasional "Mom", "Mom"! You know what I'm talking about. 
 Stepping into the sale barn I noticed 2 things right away. #1. It was seriously like stepping back into time. I don't think things have been changed since 1945 but it was so cool!

 #2. It is definitely a Man's World!! Oh there was a few women sprinkled in but they to looked like they were there on a "working" date.

 It was a good time to be together and since I didn't have to cook a meal and that in my books is a great date. Ha! I did drive us home (when the trailer was empty!) so the milkman could get a nap. Now that he is milking again full time and they are in the middle of harvest He tries to sneak a little shut eye where ever He can fit it in. I am so thankful for any time that we can spend together even if it is on a "working" date!

30 Years

When I was a little girl my Me-maw drove a school bus and I would ride with her sometimes (back in "those" days the bus driver could have other people on the bus.) I loved riding with her and seeing all of the kids get on and off the bus. There was one house that I was always envious of, it was a house where you could see the most adorable canopy bed in the window. The little girl that lived there I thought must have been really rich! I did NOT have a canopy bed with 11 children in my family I was thankful enough to have a bed Ha! Fast forward to the summer before my freshman year in high school and I met this girl named Robin. She was like someone I had never met before. She was crazy, loud, laughed all the time and never worried about what others thought of her. We became friends that summer and 30 years later she is still one of my best friends. When I went to her house the first time after meeting I about fell over when I realized she was the girl with the canopy bed! I even slept in that bed a few times over the years. We also discovered that we both asked Jesus in our hearts in the same house where we use to go to Good New Club after school (but we didn't know each other then). From that summer on we have always been friends through everything, deaths of close friends (David and Elizabeth) and grandparents, weddings, births of babies and many miles in between.


We even survived a car accident that happened in my driveway while we were trying to kill a bug. We weren't going very fast, thankfully. We hit the telephone pole at the end of my folk's circle drive. I did dislocate my jaw which had to be popped back into place and Robin had a good size gash on her forehead. We were on our way to Senior work day, which needless to say you got out of! 

 Robin is SO goofy, did I mention loud, crazy, makes me laugh SO hard, says the most "off the wall" things but she is mostly the most amazingly loyal and the kind of friend that drops everything. For example when Kyler was born and in the hospital when we didn't know if she was going to live those first couple of days, she drove all the way up from the promise land (Oklahoma) just to hug me and be by my side for only a couple of hours before she had to go back home. She is  kind hearted, sweet, ALWAYS in my corner kind of friend. She can drive me crazy but at the end of the day she has been through so much with me and knows every thing about me and still calls me her friend! I am blessed to be able to call her my friend! Thank you for always being there no matter what. Love ya Girlie!

Lola Jo Photography

Since this is Natalia's Senior year of course she needs Senior pictures taken. Of course we might as well have family pictures done at the same time right? When I booked the session a month and a half ago I thought the first week of October sounded great. I totally wasn't thinking about that being the week of the barn sale! Thank goodness my friend Amy from Lola Jo's Photography could handle my stress and made us all feel like movie stars! She is FABULOUS!! These are just a few of the behind the scenes pictures I took as she was taking Natalia's pictures.




Here are a few of the finished product. If you are local and need someone to take wedding, family, baby, Senior pictures and anything in between you really need to get ahold of Amy. She is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Thank you SO much for all your patience with all of us crazies and for making us look great!
