Oh Happy Day!!

I just discovered that a new radio station STAR 93.3 in Cincinnati has started playing Christmas music, 24/7.

Let me just say that I LOVE Christmas Music! I have been known to listen to it as early as......the 4th of July, there I said it!! Now I know many of you, perhaps all of you, will think I am NUTS, CRazy even, but I have always just loved the music of the Holiday. I love the religous stuff, the silly fun songs, all of it!
I thought I would have to wait until Thanksgiving to be able to turn my car radio to an all Christmas station, but Oh Happy Day, I saw on FaceBook today that there was a station that has already started playing it and I wasted no time turning it on, and it has been on alll day long!!
I love the old stuff by Bing!
And the new stuff

What is your favorite Christmas song?? My favorite non-religous song has to be Santa Baby, by Eartha Kitt

It is a fun song, and I love it! My favorite traditional Christmas song is...gosh I dont know, I will have to think about it and post about it later, I like so many!
Please dont judge me, other than this, I am a pretty normal gal, lol!
Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to hearing about your favorite! Sue

Busy Busy Busy

Wow I really have a busy day today! I have to go to the bank, to make a deposit, go to my Mary Kay sales person and pick up my perfume, and then at noon I have to be at church to help with a wedding.

I can only wish our church was this pretty. Don't get me wrong I love our church, for the people, but the actual church used to be a pole barn, now as far as pole barns go, this one is great, it has been transformed! But it was a pole barn, enough said! I am one of 2 wedding planners and this is my week! This is a huge wedding with 9 girls plus flower girl and 12 guys plus ring bearer! The bride is a very pretty young lady, the groom seems like a really nice guy, all and all a really neat group of people,it should be alot fun!

After the wedding it is off to a dear friend's daughter's Baby Shower, now I know I will enjoy this! I'm a goober and like going to things like this! LOL

After the shower I am meeting my husband back at the house and we are going to Red Lobster, for dinner to celebrate a friends birthday! Havent been there in years, but I do remember I love their cheese biscuits!
By this time my foot should be throbbing and I will be exhausted, but it's all good!
Hope you all have a great weekend planned, and if not, just get outside and enjoy the beautiful colors, they are amazing in our part of the country, Southern Indiana, and I hope they are where you live too!
Thanks for stopping by! Remember my blog is always open, and I love visitors! Sue

I Won An Award!

My thanks to my buddy Robin over at Alabama Slacker Mom for tagging me and a few other lovely ladies with the Honest Scrap Award.
By accepting this award I have to promise to tell all of you 10 honest things about myself, give me a minute of two to come up with these things, and I have to pass it on to 7 other lovely ladies!
Here are the official rules of this award:

1) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
2) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving this award.
3) Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.

Here are the 7 blogs that I want to give the Honest Scrap award to:

And here are 10 HOnest Things about myself...
1. I smoked a little in high school and I so wish I hadn't, but I am so happy that I didnt become addicted.
2. I drank a little in high school too and I am so glad that I never developed a taste for alcohol.
3. I am a terrible procrastinator, really really bad!
4. I hate to clean, hate it! I like a clean house, but it rarely happens, except like today because I am having a party tonite, other than that, not nearly often enough. I am a good straightener and a great stasher, but a horrible cleaner.
5. I am a hoarder, not like that lady Oprah had on her show awhile back, but I just hate throwing things away, although this is something I have been working on, and am getting a little better.
6. I wish I had gone to college, and had become a teacher, I am happy doing what I am doing now, but back in the day, I would have loved to be a teacher.
7. I am a big girl, but I cannot use the "f" word to describe myself, you know the one, (f-a-t) nope I just cant do it. And I actually dream that I am normal weight, like I used to be, I have never dreamt me big before.
8. I tell little white lies.
9. I absolutely hate going to the doctors, see # 7 for the main reason.
10. I have in the past, a couple times, over the past almost 28 years considered divorcing my husband. I am so glad we stuck it out, and I wonder if others have had that same thought. WE are great now, but sometimes over the years, I have wondered what the heck we were doing staying together.
OK, wow that got kind of deep! Now for having to pick 7 of you who have not already received this award and who still accept awards, I am having a difficult time. All of your blogs inspire me, they all make me happy just by reading them, that is why they are on my blog roll, so I want to pick any or all of you who would like to participate, please let me know you have posted this, so I can come by and learn something really honest about all of you!!!
I better get off here, I was only going to take a couple minute break from my cleaning and cooking for tonites party and it has taken me a bit longer than that! I will try to post about the two parties we are having this weekend very soon, and hopefully I remember to take some pics, which you all know I am so bad at, lol.
My final question to all of you is, do any of you invite people to your home for a party and then as the time rolls near, wonder why and the heck you opened your mouth in the first place? Not that I was thinking that at all, I'm just asking!
Thanks for stopping by, hope all of you have a great weekend!
***A quick update. Bryan finally closed on his house yesterday what any emotional thing that was for me, my baby a home owner, and what an exciting day for him! So last night we all helped him and Sonny move into their new home! Nikki is moving in with them today, so we will have our empty nest back!!! WOO HOO, YIPPEE, WOWZA WOWZA, I can iron in my underwear again! LOL

Well It Looks Like We Just Might Have Our Empty Nest Back!

I started this Blog because our kids both moved out within a couple of weeks of each other. At the time, I didnt know how I would survive. Turns out, I loved it! I didnt know how Scott and I would do, we are such opposites, turns out, we loved it,and got along wonderfully! Then a couple of months ago, they both moved BACK! It has been great, but now Bryan is supposed to close on his house on Friday, so it looks like this weekend we will be getting our really empty nest back. I have mixed feelings of course. On one hand I am very happy and proud of Bryan for purchasing such a nice house, and thrilled that it just so happens to be only 4.6 miles away. I am also happy that he has generously offered to have his sister move in with him, and Sonny. Nikki has lived away from home quite a long time and she really likes her independence. I am really happy that if I have to iron my shirt and happen to be in my bra and underwear that I can do it again without scaring the children, that is a sight no one should have to witness!lol. I will miss the "activity" in the house that naturally happens when the kids are here, but I will also love the quiet that is just Scott and I.
So in the end, it was great having them here, probably the last time we will ALL live under the same roof, gosh, that makes me sad, but we look forward to our quiet, boring, life once again, just us and our little furbabies!
So tell me have your kids ever moved back in? How was it, and did you look forward to them moving back OUT again???
Have a great week everyone, hope you are enjoying beautiful fall weather like we are here in southeast Indiana! Thanks so much for stopping by, please say HI! Sue
