Proud to be an Amreican!
While driving to work over the weekend, I saw a sign with an obvious misspelling so yesterday morning, I took my camera with me so I could capture it forever on my blog.

I don't know. Maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking that I would check and recheck any sign I was putting up for the general public to read. Also, that's a pretty important word, don't ya think?

In other patriotic news, I finally got my McCain/Palin sign for the yard! And when I say I, I mean Bubba went and got it for me. Because he is such a funny man, he came in and got me and told me he'd put my sign up.

Be sure to click so you can enjoy the visual aids!
The 'blatant eyesore' is an old mailbox post that hasn't been pulled out of the yard yet.

That situation has been remedied, though.

Yes, we need to mow and weed-whack.

I'm pretty sure I'm not going to know ANYTHING when Bubba gets home tonight and the Obama sign is replaced with another McCain sign.

Sunday Bullets Quatre
  • My baby lost his first tooth this week. And then my heart broke. He's just a BABY!

  • Speaking of my baby, he has really been into his blocks lately and builds stuff all the time. He often sings while building and last night? This is what he was singing--"If you like pina coladas, and gettin caught in the rain..." Yep.
  • I love hulu. (don't click or you may become addicted!) Especially for the News Radio. Oh, and Chicago Hope! (Oh how I've missed Dr Geiger walking around his office in his boxers!)
  • I think I have my husband guilted into going to the Republican headquarters to get me a yard sign. Even though he swears he is going to sandwich it between two 'bin laden' signs. I'm sure the neighbors will have fun watching us chase each other around the yard trying to one up each other with the best spot for our sign.
  • My brain is mush. I can't even remember the things I was going to bullet tonight. I'll blog more this week. I promise!

This is controversial?
Why is THIS photo causing a stir?

I see way more boob on the covers of about 50 other magazines at the grocery store.

The world has gone mad.

Stay in school, kids!
This is a 'my kid is awesome' kind of post, so be warned.

First, I have to say that I completely forgot to blog about my oldest daughter, Brianna, being accepted to IUPUI for next year. (She's a senior in high school right now.) IUPUI is her first choice because they have her major, which is not quite as a popular as, say, elementary ed or something like that. Her major is Tourism, Conventions and Event Management. She'd like to be an event coordinator and maybe do some wedding planning on the side. Anyway, IUPUI has a good program so she applied and got in. I didn't think there'd be any question, anyway, because she is on track to be one of the valedictorians of her class this year. A couple of weeks ago, she got her acceptance letter and she was happy and so were we.

Brianna is extremely organized and she has really taken the bull by the horns when it comes to applying for college and scholarships, etc. She has done every last bit of it and I haven't had to do anything. (It's a good thing, because I am NOT the organized type. Not at all.)

Fast forward to yesterday. Brianna got a packet in the mail which looked exactly like her acceptance package. It was a usual afternoon in our house with the kids making noise and Jeremy (the boyfriend) hanging out and just whatever. Brianna was opening her mail and all of the sudden she SCREAMS and says, "I got the scholarship! The Valedictorian scholarship!" So we all run to her and there may have been dancing and singing, not sure.

The Valedictorian scholarship is... $40,000!

I KNOW! I couldn't believe it either!

Now, here's our dilemma. How the H are we going to pay for housing?? Well, Brianna is also part of the 21st Century Scholars program. Now, if the scholarship can be applied to housing also, 21st Century Scholars will cover the remainder of the tuition. Cross your fingers.

Anyway, my kid is awesome! See?
