Well, I was supposed to get my Crumpler Camera Bag today but instead UPS really screwed up. I TOTALLY understand how mistakes can be made but this just sounds insane. I ordered it at the beginning of the week and paid EXTRA so it would be here before the weekend. I'm going to Kings Dominion Saturday with my family and didn't want to carry my big Lowepro Sling typle bag. Then, Sunday is a SPECIAL Church Service at my son's school and our work picnic. Needless to say, I wanted my hands as free as possible and that just isn't going to happen. The UPS Tracking showed all along the 21st as the delivery date and it even showed this morning it went out for delivery at 6:40 A.M. When I called tonite to UPS after it didn't show up, she told me it's been redirected for delivery MONDAY. It's just sitting in the Newport News UPS Office, which is closed all weekend. She was very sorry for my problem and completely understood. She also said they would pay 100% for the delivery charges but it was very strange that it wasn't even attempted to be delivered. The driver dropped it back off at 7:45 P.M. and there was no other comment. She said usually, there is a reason why it was not delivered. I knew a friend a while back who worked for UPS and I thought he said that he could not go back to the office until all packages had been delivered and he had a very tight schedule. How strange. Well, I guess I'll get over it but it just made me so mad! I'm sure I'll have another bigger bag that I can use but I was SO looking forward to finally having a bag to fit my stuff without being huge. \
Otherwise, it was a pretty good evening. Mike had a part fixed on our car and I was late leaving for work so we went to a little later evening at the steak restaurant near us. It was yummy and wonderful to have a chance to sit down, to rest, to recoupe.
I finished putting my Fall decorations out tonite and I love the feeling of our home. Delicious Pumpkin Spice Candles and Plug Ins burning, leaves and pumpkins all over and no dust! (my least fave thing to do .. ..... :)
Also got to play with my new Hermit Crabs, Mickey and Minnie. They're fun....they walk SO fast and seem pretty playful. they love to walk up my arm!!
Well, I'm headed to bed. I'm tired and looking forward to the weekend! Have a good nite!!

I had a Coke tonite for dinner and I'm paying it for it now. It's after Midnight and I can't sleep! Mike got home early from School and I was hoping to be done cleaning. He wanted to work on his computer, though and it gave me a chance to get a lot done. Cleaned my entire Kitchen and Living Room tonite, decorated with some Fall stuff and had candles burning in all the major rooms. It smells SO sweet in here! Also took Hunter to the Pet Store and bought him 2 Hermit Crabs. I'll try to post pictures on Friday but I'm TOO tired now. They're fun. It tickles him when they walk on his arm but he thinks they're "COOL". I'm thinking of naming them Mickey and Minnie but I'll think about it over the weekend for sure. It's all Lynn's fault..LOL! She went by to pick up her new kitten and a bunch of us went by to see it while she shopped. He's so sweet, only 3 months old. I'm more of a dog lover myself but they could defentley grow on me! So sweet and little...a real precious boy. His name is "Little Man"....aawwwww....
OK, I'll post more Friday. I'm going to bed now and hopefully, I'll have more pics to share then
Have a WONDERFUL Friday =:)

Our friend, Lavaughn tried out my camping chair and was SO comfy. I caught her laughing hysterically here. She's so funny!
Our other friends, Reba and her hubby Doug rode bikes most of Saturday. It made me wish we would have brought ours but we walked with them anyway:) I'm wishing for Fall now. The cool temps this weekend spoiled me!!
This is one of my sunset pictures. It's crooked but I wanted to catch the color of it in a hurry.
Hope everyone had a great Tuesday. I was up early Monday morning for a meeting, then dinner with our office and Tuesday night, I had a birthday party to go to. It was really nice!
I didn't get a chance to say it earlier but

I went out tonite and finally, got a pair of Crocs. I always thought these didn't look comfortable at all and in my opinion, leaves a lot to be desired in the looks department. But, if I had to choose, I like the Mary Jane styles the best. I really wanted a black pair but they didn't have my size. So, I got the next best thing. (and maybe I'll get the black later if these work out!)
I've had some serious pain in my heels lately. That's one of the reasons I started getting a pedicure in the first place. It's only been two weeks since my last one, though so this is probably from wearing my flip flops constantly. After wearing them to Water Country for two days in a row, I think my feet are letting me know they don't approve. I had heard so many people say these shoes are great and last night, when I found an article about their possible health benefits, I thought I should try them. So far so good.
Tomorrow, I get some new candles. Yankee Candle Outlet was having a friends and family 50% off sale today and a friend from work picked up whatever we wanted. I got a large Pumpkin Spice Candle, some Autumn Wreath Air Freshener refills and a couple tarts to melt in my burner. The best part was ALL THE SCENTS were 50% off! YA! Can't wait to get my new stuff tomorrow!! I LOVE that place!
Friday, we're leaving for a new campground right on the water. Map quest says it's about an hour and fifteen minutes away so I can't wait!We're going with two other couples that are so much fun. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

What a week! We're going camping this weekend and I can't wait. I hope I can get there Friday night early enough to put my baby to bed and then sit outside. Just prop my feet up and feel the wind in my hair. Not a care in the world.AAAAAHHHHHH...
I have a Heel Spur on the bottom of my left foot that is killing me...I can hardly put pressure on it while walking. Tonite, I soaked it in Hot Water and Epsom Salt and I'm hoping that it will soften up the rough spots. I wear my flip flops all the time so I'm wondering if it's taking a toll on my feet. My feet have gotten sore before but this is the worst. I've had two people tell me to try Vick's Vapor Rug too with a bandage on top so I'll try that tomorrow.
I also spoke to the Speech Pathologist today about Hunter's speech therapy. Her schedule is completely full and the only time she has for him to go to is not possible with my work schedule. She didn't have anything for me but is talking to her supervisor about us going to another school at 8 A.M. for him to get help. Another option is for us to work with him with some paperwork from her about what to go over. I've seen a huge improvement but he still needs help. We're just praying that God will open up a door for us and things will work out. He gets so frustrated, not being able to communicate what he wants to say. MOST of the time we can understand him but every once in a while, it's a mystery. I almost cried this afternoon...UGH!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday. I'm off to bed!!

What a busy but terrific weekend! My flash was delivered Friday so I couldn't wait to use it! (even if I didn't really need it and hadn't read the manual..LOL) We ate Subway and went to the park so Hunter AND I could play:) Came home and watched tv in bed...I love lazy Friday nights.
Saturday, we spent the day at Water Country with the family and had a BLAST. The weather was perfect and after a long day, I was tired! I came home and FINALLY, figured out how to work my actions. Make sure you scroll down to see all the different ones I tried. I can tweak them on individual pics but I was just trying them all out and playing for the first time. Sunday, we slept in and relaxed a little before going to Water Country. After lunch, we put Hunter down for an early nap so he's be rested. It was the LAST day of the season so we wanted to enjoy it one more time. We only stayed about two and a half hours but that was long enough. We were still recovering from the previous day and I still needed to go see our grandparents. These pictures are from going to see my parents. My dad is going on a trip tomorrow and we wanted to tell him Goodbye. Grandma read to him and Grandad practiced his flash cards with him. That's about it, except for some cleaning and laundry done Sunday in the morning and when we got home tonite. Mike got some time to study some and I picked up around the house a little.
We're hoping to find Hunter a pair of new tennis shoes tomorrow. I thought his current ones fit good but they're getting kinda tight. Tuesday is his FIRST day of school and I want him to be COMFY!!
We have a long week ahead of us. Besides Hunter starting school, Mike starts his class at ODU so he'll get home from Norfolk LATE two days a week. It's only for about a month but he's looking forward to this review class for his PE Exam, just a little over a month away...
Well, I'm tired and going to bed. Good Nite!!
Hope everyone has an awesome Monday!!

These 2 slides and rides are in the indoor play room. How cool!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday. I'm off to Water Country with my family. I've got to run since I need to run by RITZ CAMERA this morning to pick up some filters and things I ordered that are in. I know I'll want to PLAY when I get home. Take Care!

What a terrific day! It started at 5:30 in the morning when my bff sang Happy Birthday to me through a text message on my phone. I also got a ecard from her, another song through email and a really nice visit with 6 of these yummy cupcakes! I feel Da Love!
Lots of people sang to me, emailed me, messaged me and called me today and to everyone, THANKS to the bottom of my heart!

This is our YUMMY and VERY rich birthday cake that the restaurant gave us. It was SO rich, it almost tasted like there was liquor in it. But it was only coffee, which was TOO good! I loved it, a very different taste.
This is my new Candle Holder, which looks VERY Home and Gardenish on my Mantle. I LOVE IT! I also got some Yankee Autumn Wreath Candles for it that smell INCREDIBLE, some money, and gift cards to Chilli's. I'm hoping to go to dinner on Friday with those and I'm saving my money for some camera stuff.
It was a wonderful birthday celebration and I was so glad to be with my family again!! Too bad this website doesn't offer Scratch and Sniff..My living room is filled with the smell of Autumn. I'm really tempted to put out my scarecrow, fall wreath, leaf decorations...OH, Sorry. I was getting carried away but I AM so excited about some cooler temps. (AFTER this weekend, of course since we're going to Water Country this weekend ... it's the last days for the season.)
**OK, This is just a funny shot of Hunter at dinner with friends on Monday. We got him a cookie for being on good behavior while we were away this weekend. He was VERY happy! (AND covered in Chocolate) TOO CUTE! He was also being egged on so that's where the hands are coming from!!
OK, I'll post more later in the week. Mike and I get to go meet Hunter's teacher at his preschool tomorrow night. (Wednesday) He'll get to meet her for about an hour on Thursday. I know I'm going to cry. I know I'm going to cry. I KNOW I'M GOING TO CRY:(
My baby is growing up!!
Anyway, Have a wonderful Hump Day!!
