Happy Birthday to me!

This past week was my birthday!  I celebrated on Thursday with our birthday group!  It was YUMMY! There was several ladies missing.  We still had a great time.
My mom decided to come over for the weekend.  On Friday we all went out to Heir's work for dinner and to listen to the band.  It was so much fun. 
This is the Over 21 Group.  Our 4 oldest and T2's roommate Kevin and my Mom and DIL.  We had so much fun. 
My friends Jackie and Jonathon were having a date night and sat by us for a while.  My cousin Tim and Theresa all came and hung out for a while too. I didn't get their picture. 
  It was a good birthday!
On Sunday after dinner I asked my mom and Tame' to go on a short walk with me.  I had found clues to a letterbox by us.  We went and found it.  It was a nice walk and a good find.

I hope you have a blessed week.

I have reached a certain age.....

I wear contacts.  I have glasses for late at night or first thing in the morning but I wear contacts most of the time.  I chew gum. Every day!  I had my eyes checked last year.  I told the Dr. I was having some trouble and it had me a bit concerned.  She did her exam and informed me that I needed readers!  RUDE!  I said WOW that happened fast.  She said well.. you are over 40.  I said I do not have a "best by" date stamped on my foot!  She informed me that that might very well be true but things "happened" after 40.  Most of our birthday club ladies all pull out readers to read the menu when we go out to eat.  I have not ever had to do that yet.  I don't carry readers with me. Fast forward to yesterday. I was at the store and getting a few things.  I chew Extra gum.  They were out.  I was trying to get another sugar free gum.  I picked one up and was trying to hold it far enough away to read it.  COULD NOT DO IT!  I finally put it in my cart and when I got to the cashier I leaned over and asked her if this gum was sugar free.  She smiled at me like I was stupid.  I said I don't carry readers and I can't read that small of writing.  She just smiled at me.  GRRRR!  It was sugar free by the way!

A long over due update

I know I haven't written anything in a long while.  Life isn't kind right now and rather then be all dark and dreary I tend to just go quiet. I know no ones life is all rainbows and unicorn glitter but I guess that's just not my style.  So here is a long over due update, picture style of course.

The Hummers have been so active lately.  A twofer!
On this day it was POURING rain and she just kept sitting on this branch and then shaking like crazy to get the bulk of the rain off of her. I wanted to hold her to warm her up, she didn't want that though.

Last weekend Bugs had a friend over and we had a campfire.   Friend had never roasted marshmallow's before.  He was so cute to watch.  I can't believe how many smore's he ate.  I finally told him he could just roast the marshmallow's and didn't have to have it on the crackers.  He said Nope he liked em!  He's a very nice boy.
One afternoon Bugs went and picked me a bouquet for our table.  He was so proud of it.  I loved it!

School is almost out so Monkey's school had it's annual BBQ.   He was so excited to have me there for lunch.  School lunches are gross!  The company was WONDERFUL!

I was asked to coordinate a wedding.  It was for a long time friends daughter.  It was at a beautiful venue and I am really pleased how it went.  I have done MANY weddings but this was a first for someone my boys have known almost their whole lives.
Congratulations S & J!

We did it!  Whew.

Miss Emily is who I picked to marry our T2.  Since they aren't even dating that probably isn't how it's going to turn out but you never know! She is my pick anyway.  She is graduating this week.  Her Mama and Daddy are so very proud.  Way to go Em!

This brings us to Sunday.  We had Heir Apparent's birthday dinner.  That gives him is actual birthday to hang out with his buddies or whatever.  He asked for enchilada's.  That's a good meal for everyone. Most of the boys had gone on a hike all day so when they got home they were hungry and tired!  Hunger is the best seasoning for any meal. :)
T2's roommate Kevin.  I really like this picture of him. 

My Drummer!  He had a great time on the hike too.

T2 but my camera was acting goofy. 

The birthday boy!  He will be 29 on Tuesday.  29?  HOW did that happen. 

Buster being so silly! 

Our beautiful Heather. 

Make a wish! 
If you don't mind, please just say a prayer for my family.  We need it. Thanks.
Have a blessed week.
