Time for the Turkey-eatin pants

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving but I couldn't sleep I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep. The leftovers beckoned - the dark meat and white. But I fought the temptation with all of my might. Tossing and turning with anticipation The thought of a snack became infatuation. So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore. I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes, Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes. I felt myself swelling so plump and so round, 'Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground. I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie. But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees..... Happy eating to all -- pass the cranberries, please. May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump. May your potatoes 'n' gravy have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize, May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING BE BLESSED!!

2007 Freakiest Fish

The polls are closed, the votes are tallied and the winner is (drum roll please):
the red lipped batfish!
No word if this bottom dweller is doing the Time Warp on the seafloor in celebration of the win, but one thing's for sure, the fish with the crimson kisser would be a shoo in for the aquatic rendition of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.Also known as the Galapagos batfish, this oddball is a poor swimmer that spends an abundance of time "walking" on its pectoral fins. In addition to its freaky walking ability, its body is covered in gnarled lumps, so it's no wonder this warm water species looks like it's wearing lipstick -- how else could it get a date?
And Check out this funny bird!!

Halloween is coming...

Halloween is coming,
Halloween is coming,
We'll say BOO!!!

I know that everyone is so thankful for this cool weather we have been having! We have been enjoying dressing up for Halloween, carving our pumpkin, and being outside! We went to my cousin, Jennifer's, annual Halloween party last Saturday night. Luke was The Beast, and I was Lumiere. Yes, the candle. We were definitely the hit of the party. At least Luke was on the karaoke machine.Toasted Pumpkin Seeds! Yummy!!



On Sunday night, he got his artistry skills out for our Jack-o-lantern.My dad has always done very intricate pumpkin designs and Luke has followed very closely in his footsteps. This year we have a haunted house with a full moon. Aren't you
impressed?


I hope everyone has a Happy All Hallow's Eve tomorrow night! I have to work, so I am going to be a flowerbed.Here I am! You can't really see my necklace and earrings, but they fit into the theme as well. Don't mind my tired face!




Bandit enjoying the Fall Weather!!

Start spreading the news..

We are leaving December 7 for NYC!!!
Luke called me early last week during the day, which I knew meant something was up. I have started working nights, and so he knows not to wake the bear during the day. He said, "I just accidently bought us plane tickets for our anniversary!!" He had been playing around on priceline.com, and bid on airline tickets. They accepted his bid, and now we are going to New York for the weekend!!
We went there 4 years ago about this same time of year. We had only been dating a few months at the time, and we had an absolute blast!! I am looking forward to eating alot, ice skating, and getting some Christmas shopping done!
Yea for Wonderful Husbands!!

New addition to our family!

Luke parted with his PS22 (via Ebay), and put his birthday money together and bought a PS3. No, I dont enjoy playing it, nor can I even steer a car. But, he loves it and it gives him something to do while I am working nights...like tonight! Adam & Lindsey stopped by last Saturday (and I am so glad they did!), and Adam played it the whole time. They think the graphics are amazing, and when I told Luke I couldnt tell a difference from the PS2, he truly got his feelings hurt!
I dont think he'll ever grow up...and I love that about him!! (well, maybe not when I want attention and he's playing football, but he's eben very good about not picking up the controller until I am out of sight!)

The War

I know everyone has different opinions of the war, if the soldiers should be there at all, if they should come home, if they should stay. Whatever our beliefs, they are there and need our support. This video was made by a 15 year old girl and is very moving. Grab some tissues!

Update on Ms. June

I want to thank everyone so very much for keeping Ms June and her family in your prayers. We went to visit yesterday, and she has been moved from ICU to a regular room. They did surgery on two of the aneurysms, and they found two more! The doctor was not concerned about the other two, and said they would discuss how to treat those when she was feeling better. She looked awesome and I was so glad to see her talking and laughing!

Needing Some Prayers

I need everyone to pray for one of my mom's best friends, June Trusty. (Her daughter, April, is one of my best friends.) She went to the hospital tonight with a headache, and they have diagnosed as a brain aneurysm. Pray that the doctors and nurses taking care of her are knowledgeable, that her surgery goes well tomorrow, and that her family is at peace. Another one of my mom's best friends (Patti Pruitt) died on a week ago Thursday from the same thing. Please keep my mom in your prayers too.

State football, Luke's birthday, and other fall fun!

We have been so blessed to be back in Memphis and able to attend all the State home games. Luke loves to go to watch the game, and I love to go to see my friends!! This weekend, Blake will be coming from Knoxville to see his team lose (hopefully!). Cant wait to entertain him in the Golden Triangle Metropolis. My darling husband had a birthday last week. (Before you judge me and think I am a bad wife for not posting a sweet note on his birthday, he doesnt read the blog and would never know the difference!) I woke him up with Sister Schubert (who is a KD) pigs in a blanket in bed! We went to Lee Khan's for lunch (where we had a City Pass BYGOF coupon), and then to Harvey's for dinner with his dad. Before he left for work, I gave him new Dwight Schrute pens to use while he was at work, and then I gave him a WOK for his big present! I know that is kind of a random gift, but he has been asking for one since we received our pots and pans last fall. It matches the rest of our Calphalon, and he grinned from ear to ear! He makes the best chicken fried rice, so now he will feel like a real chef with his new gear! We enjoyed Homecoming Saturday from the upper deck, and then stopped by our friend's, Joe and Tracy, Tailgating Shower! We left and headed to Tupelo to spend the night with Luke's mom, Katie, and Michael. We had a wonderful weekend being able to see all of his family!

Lecile


Some of my readers have commented that they did not know there were famous rodeo clowns. My family went to the rodeo a few weekends ago, and we got to see our neighbor. Everyone should be jealous that we know such a celebrity!! The bottom pic is of Luke and two of his best friends. We met up with them after the rodeo at Fox and the Hound!

My Parent's Anniversary



My parents celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on September 24! My dad really outdid himself and surprised my mom with a trip to Disney World, AND an updated version of her ring!! He took the diamond that he gave her when they got engaged (and she was a mere babe at 19,) the diamond my grandfather gave my grandmother on their 15th wedding anniversary, and then he added another diamond to even it out. The result is MAGNIFICENT!!!



What do you think??


I think it is a little ridiculous,myself, but my Mom definitely deserves it. They are such wonderful parents to four wonderful :) kids, and they have truly demonstrated for us and everyone else how to love all the time. Yall know how much I love them, and I could go on forever, but I want to get on to the Surprise Trip!!

My dad and I showed up at my mom's school on Friday and waited in the principal's office. The principal stopped my mom and her class and told my mom they needed her in the office, and that she would take her class back to the room. My mom came into the office and started crying when she saw my dad because she thought something was wrong. We took her outside, and my Dad said a lot of muchy-gushy stuff while I lingered in the background. Nana showed up, and we threw my parents into the car and started driving. While they sipped on champagne, I drove them to the airport. We dropped them off with my mom still not knowing where they were going. My parents had always said they would go to France by their 5th, then 10th, then 25th anniversary, and have never made it there. So, my thoughtful Dad made reservations at Epcot at the French restaurant for Saturday night. They enjoyed three days in Orlando without kids, and I think they wish they had gone without us before now :)


Isnt my dad the greatest?

(Blogger is acting up, so I'll add more pics later!)

I am sure that many of you have seen this, but I wanted to share... I should've been in pageants.

Fall Fun

Nothing gets me in the mood for the fall like THE FAIR!!! And even better this year, Memphis is having not one, but TWO, fairs. The family piled up and headed to the Delta Fair a few weeks ago. We enjoyed the rides, the food, and a John Angotti concert (if you've never heard him, he is Amazing!!). I also saw the woman with no head. Cost me $2. It was ridiculous. I had to see it for myself, though, because of my heritage. That's right, I gave Carny folk in my bloodlines. My great-great grandmother was nicknamed "Tiny." And not because she was the world's smallest woman. More like the opposite! And her husband (my great-great grandfather) and her son (great-great-uncle) rode the motorcycle's in the ball. So if I have any "quirkiness" about me, blame it on the carnies in my bloodline.


Another reason why I like the fall is FOOTBALL SEASON! Now, as a Mississippi State fan, this has been an oxymoron the last few years. And as a True Fan, I attended the LSU game (miserable), and planned a party for Tulane hoping to bring up the spirits of all State alum in Memphis! I was very excited and pulled out all my MSU serving pieces, sent out an e=--vite, and waited for the replies. On Tuesday (before the game on Saturday), Luke sweetly informs me that we do not get the station that the game will be televised on. WHAT?! But I've planned a party, and have out my hand-painted MSU pitcher!!! I even have Bulldog napkins!! Needless to say, I had to pack up my napkins and cowbell and head to Buffalo Wild Wings where we all enjoyed a

BULLDOG VICTORY!!!!


We were able to reschedule our house party for this Saturday! The Ramsey's, Zach, Shatephen, came over to watch us BEAT AUBURN!! That's right...the tigers...or war-eagles, were BULLDOG BAIT!!! After that victory, the Grabowski's came over with Bear, and we watched the Alabama-Arkansas game. Bandit and Bear had fun playing together, and we enjoyed everyone's company!

Another Fall update, Jake turned 10 on September 10!! I cannot believe he is so Old!! We attended his bday party at Putt Putt where we got to play Laser Tag. He had a joint bday party with another friend, and they were divided into two teams of five. At the last minute, Meg, Luke and I joined in. Luke and I were on Jake's team, and we won all 4 games! Megan was on the losing team, but she was a good sport about the whole thing. We came out of the arena, and we sweating...so disgusting considering we had to go to small group after that! Yuck!


Anyway...our Fall has really gotten off to a fun start! The weather has been fabulous, and I cant wait to go to Starkville this weekend for another W!

Interview with ME!!

Me, being interviewed by Trace...
  1. If you had one wish, what would you wish for? Forget world peace, be selfish and wish for something personal. This is really selfish, but I think that I would wish that I always liked my body even though I ate whatever I want. I usually don't deprive myself of anything, but I think about everything that goes in. I think that is a huge difference in males and females, because I don't know any girl that can truly eat anything without thinking of its caloric intake, while guys can feast all day and never think twice.
  1. What is your favorite game (board or other). My favorite board game is The Game of Life; has been since 6th grade!
  2. What is your all time favorite thing to cook? And what is the recipe? :) Probably banana pudding....It is always a hit, and reminds me of summer!!! Family secret, sorry! Haha j/k....I have to call Nannie every single time I make it....but I know it is Sweetened condensed milk, cool whip, vanilla Instant pudding, vanilla extract layered in between bananas and 'nilla wafers.
  3. If you could listen to only one type of music for the rest of your life, what genre would you choose? Country, hands down! There are so many songs that have positive memories attached, I would definitely have to go with that!
  4. If you were in the witness protection program and had to leave the state of Mississippi and Tennessee, what city and state would you choose to live in and why? Colorado. I could hide in the mountains, ski, enjoy the scenery, and I know for sure Luke would come with me!!
If you would like to be interviewed, leave a comment and I will email you questions! ---------------- Now playing: Norah Jones - Rosie's Lullaby via FoxyTunes

Great Minds think Alike!!

Please go to Heather's blog immediately and read her ten reasons...I just did and realized how much we have in common!! Must have been living together for so long...she is so lucky!

Ten things...

I have been tagged by Trace to tell yall ten of my favorite things. Here goes: 1. My family. My husband is my best friend, and he lets me complain when I need to, and makes me laugh when I need that too. My parents are the greatest example of love that lasts; my siblings make me laugh until I cry and are three of my best friends. My grandparents are all crazy and make for some interesting holidays...and my aunts, uncles, and cousins are who I like to hang out with. It is such a blessing to be so close to so much of my family. Luke thinks we are all crazy, but he is starting to "get it", and why I like them all so much!! 2. Fall. I love the fall and the spring, but fall is definitely my favorites season. Last night at Supper Club, I ordered Orange Spice Tea because it tastes like autumn to me. I bought a Pumpkin Spice candle this week, and have slowly started pulling out my long-sleeved shirts. I love football games, the crisp, fresh air that follows the humid air of summer, and opening up our windows. 3. The beach. I love being on the beach in the middle of the summer when it is so hot you have to stay in the ocean all day (because I dont like to sweat, you see.) 4. Ice cream. My favorite is mint chocolate chip, but I dont limit myself on trying any and all flavors. My grandmother, my dad, and I all try to eat at least one bowl a day. I need the Calcium is my excuse. 5. My dog. If you have read any of my posts, you know how much I adore Bandit. Enough said. 6. Making things with my hands. I have recently expanded my knitting world into blankets and hats, and there is something about the finished product that is extremely satisfying. Same way with cooking and growing flowers. I think in our world where everything is premade, it is nice to be able to say, I made that! 7. My job. I have the most wonderful job as a postpartum/nursery nurse. I get to help new parents adjust to their new roles, and hold new babies all day long. What a blessing! 8. Mississippi State. College was so much fun, and such a wonderful period of growth. I miss my friends daily, but also Starkville. I think living on campus all four years really gave me a sense of home when I am able to go back and visit. 9. Friends. There is just something about talking to an old friend that makes everything in life ok. 10. Being outside. I love to cut the grass, plant flowers, ride horses, read, and just sit outside. It relaxes me more than anything I can do inside. And now it's my turn to tag: Tricia, Laurette, Jessica, Jordan, and Audra

Katiebug's Birthday!


Luke's little sister, Katie, turned 23 on August 24! We left for Tupelo after I got off work on Friday night and had a wonderful Birthday weekend with her and Ms. Amy. I made "Katiebugs" in honor of the event, and Luke and I got a ladybug pinata and red and black balloons. We had Katie's favorite meal, and enjoyed being able to hang out with her and Michael. We also got to talk about the upcoming wedding (they changed the date to January 12!) Katie is such a wonderful sister-in-law, and from the stories I have heard, put up with a lot from Luke as a child. She is so level-headed and calm, and I enjoy being around her so much! I really lucked out when I got married to Luke, because she is a doll!

-

Megan-Bob-Parsley's Birthday!!


My favorite little sister turned 22 on August 19! I know I am a little (ok, a lot) late, but I still wanted to tell her how much I love her!!
Reasons why I love Megan Annette Bousson:
1. She is the most hysterical person I have ever met...she will make you pee your pants,
2. She is beautiful. And she was the cutest (ok, 2nd cutest) little girl ever. She used to set up our family video camera and tape herself singing, dancing, and just talking. So funny!
3. She tells it like it is. Most people cant get away with half the stuff she says.
4. She has style. From music to clothes, to her "scent-of-the-month", she always knows whats in and whats out...and is always quick to point out what's out that I have on (refer to #3).
5. She has a tattoo...I have always wanted one and have never had the guts to actually go through with it, which she quickly pointed out the night she got it and I was fuming.
6. She's my little sister, my best friend, my closest confidante, and my hero.

I love you Meggie!

Joey & Cassie's Wedding Festivities

My cousin, Joey, and his lovely fiance (now wife) Cassie got married August 18! I know I am a little late, but I wanted to post pics from the Bridesmaid's Luncheon, Bachelorette Party, Rehearsal Dinner, and Wedding! We had so much fun at all the parties, and are so excited Cassie is now a Bousson!!

The Bridesmaid Luncheon was at this fabulous tearoom in Arlington, TN about 20 minutes from Collierville. This lady runs the tearoom from her home, and it is decorated perfectly. She has a ton of antiques, and it is exactly what I would like my house to look like one day!That night, we met up at Erin (a BM) apt downtown. The theme was "Golfers" , like on The Wedding Date. There was a big group of us, all in argyle socks!! I love a good theme party, so you know we got all into it. We ate dinner at the Majestic Theatre on Main St, and then hit Beale. We all had a really good time, and Meg and I even stayed on the bull for 8 seconds!!

I was lucky enough to be recruited to hold babies during the rehearsal (such a treat!), and then the rehearsal dinner was at Elfo's. Elfo's is this deliciously fabulous restaurant, and it is in a building, but the shops all open to a walkway on the inside and it looks like a French village (I guess, I never have been to a French village...haha). It is just a really neat set-up, and I had one of the best steaks I have had in a while! YUM YUM!! After the dinner, one of our cousins, Adam, (well, he is really Joey's-my cousin-cousin on the other side of the family, but we claim them anyway), is the manager at Seize the Clay. He opened it up for us, and we painted pottery and ate some more until about 1:30....I love hanging out with all of my family because we always have so much fun together!!The wedding was at Immaculate Conception Cathedral. When I say it takes your breath away, I mean it. It could be in a movie it is so pretty! And of course, Cassie looked gorgeous! We had a little flash flood issue, but it just cooled everything off. The reception was at the Zoo, and we all had a wonderful time! Cassie, everything was perfect!!

Addendum to the below post

The only song Bandit will sing along to is "Happy Birthday." He won't sing to anything else, not even Happy Birthday in Spanish. Until this morning. At 5:41 am, I hear the Mississippi State fight song being played as loud as our little computer speakers will allow. And then I hear Bandit singing along with it!! From my cozy spot in bed, I can also hear Luke laughing hysterically, and then stating, "Now THAT is a proud parental moment!!" (Trace, I will make SURE he sings it for you next time we see you, knowing it's your FAVORITE song and all!!)

Hail Dear Old State


I just made Luke climb up into the attic to find my cowbell for the opening game tomorrow night. It was music to my ears the second I heard it ring. We can't wait to be in Starkville tomorrow night. See yall there.

Housewife Extraordanaire

Luke's days as a housewife are officially over. He started work today for the Town of Collierville as a town engineer ( I think). He works approximately 3 miles from our house in Town Hall. He was really excited about starting, and I was so happy for him. He was a good housewife, but his priorities and mine were evidently different. As most of you know, I stayed home the first three months of our marriage. I was in the process of getting my nursing license, but I enjoyed every minute of being at home. It gave me a chance to get organized, are apartment was as clean as it could get, and we had supper everyday whenever Luke arrived home. I look forward to being a housewife again one day. Not Luke. I would call at lunch to see what he had been doing all day, and his response was either A.) building something, B.) Playing fantasy baseball, or C.) planning our ski trip for March (get excited, Heather...he took his job really seriously). I didn't mind him doing any of these three things, but I know he was ready to get out of the house, and out from under my Honey Do list.
I hope he found someone to sit with at lunch!

Happy Sneak a Zucchini onto your Neighbor's Porch Day!

I knew Tricia and I were meant to be friends when I discovered our love for this holiday! Ways to successfully get rid of excess zucchini: -Carefully place a dozen or more zucchini in a large, sturdy black plastic trash bag, then add a couple layers of unwanted clothing. Drive to nearest Goodwill or Salvation Army, hand over bag to nearest volunteer. Politely refuse any offered receipt. Leave quickly. -Look for out-of-the-way places which have signs posted, "Clean Fill Wanted." -Under light of full moon, either stark naked or wearing full army camouflage, carrying a machete or any garden implement, run amuck in your zucchini patch, cutting and slashing. Be sure to thank Mother Nature for her bounty before and after this cathartic experience. -Buy a large roll of freezer paper--the kind that sub shops use. Then proceed to wrap each zucchini that has managed to grow to a foot or more in length. Next time your child has a fundraiser, send him or her out supplied with these phony subs. Tell child to drop them off with neighbors or relatives and leave quickly. It's advisable that a responsible adult hover nearby in a get-away car. -Gather all available plastic containers and freezer bags. Drink a vat of your favorite caffeinated beverage, in preparation for staying up 'round the clock to purée large quantities of zucchini. This can then be packaged neatly and artistically labeled: "For Zucchini Nut Bread Recipe." These packages can be freely given, along with copies of recipe, to anyone on your Christmas list.
Any other suggestions on how to celebrate?

I truly love the fair...


An acquaintance might know you like to eat...
A good friend loves you even when you have a Happy Plate...
A great friend encourages your consumption of fair food!

Thanks, Tracy, for our very own funnel cake maker! We love it!

True Love



Some girls like for their husbands to send flowers to show their love,
Some like a release of a hundred white doves.
Others prefer dinner and a night on the town.

And others like to dance and be spun all around.

No, not me, when I want to know,

I look out the window and there is a glow.

Luke is slaying my biggest enemy,

The one with the warning: Leaves of Three; Let it Be.


I have been struck with the worst case of poison Ivy I have experienced to date. I occasionally have been pestered by this annoying interference, but this time it is bad! It is on every extremity, my eyelids, my neck, and several unmentionables. I think Bandit brought it in on his fur, and then I touched him, and then I took a bath, and it spread life a wildfire in Orlando. I have been so miserable, I let Luke srub my arms tonight with a dish scrubby pad and then srub it with this medicine called TecNu while running it under scalding hot water. I was relieved to find I had followed all the steps recommended, but it does not help the miserable itching! The only positive is that I am in Nursing Orientation this week so I am sitting in a classroom, because could you imagine an oozing nurse bringing you your baby. I look like the guy from Scary Movie. My Germs!

On a side note, the first time I can remember having poison ivy, I was at Kamp Kiwani (girl scout camp). I had teeteed in the woods, and picked the wrong spot to squat. Lauren Parsons was recruited to put calamine lotion on my tush, and as I lay on the bed of our cabin nekkid, our counselor walked in. I bet she thought we were freaks...I decided if she would do that then she would be a good freshman roommate in college, and that didnt even run her off because she was a bridesmaid! Good thing she didnt hold any of that against me!


A Weekend of Friends

I know I am way behind, but the weekend of July 20-21, I got my friend fix that I had been needing. Minus the wedding festivities of Brad & Sara and Darrow & Sissy, I had not seen any of my friends since December 9. I had met some really neat people in Tyler, but there is something about an old friend that knows everything about you that cannot be imitated.

When I was in high school, I was on the pom squad my freshman and sophomore year. Only two people from my squad tried out the next year, but we all wanted to stay friends and our moms liked to hang out too. So The Supper Club was born one February night at Benihana's, and we still meet monthly 8 years later. Every summer, we all go to Oxford for a slumber party at my friend, Whitney's, house. (Her grandparents and family are huge Ole Miss fans, bless their hearts, and the grandparents built a huge house for the grandkids to live in while they were in college, and for the whole family to stay in when the Rebels are losing...oh, I mean playing.) This year, our group consisted of the following:
Whitney, Courtney, Laura, and MeMrs. Queena (Tracy's mom),Mrs. N (Laura's mom), Mrs. Hathaway(Dori's mom), Mrs Cyndi (Whits mom), and Kath.

We had a wonderful time, as we always do when we get together, and even got the Mom's to go to a bar to see a girl we know sing! It was hysterical seeing our mom's in their capris in a bar. And I will admit I was feeling my age when several of my YoungLife girls ran up to me. I felt ancient! We usually sing karoake when we get back to the Cole's, but this year my wonderful friends humored me and watched my wedding video. I don't think they minded too much, though, because they were all over it! (hope not anyway!)

Move on to Saturday, and I traveled to God's country, Starkville, MS. My college friends were meeting for a reunion at Tricia's adorable apt! I got there in time for lunch at The Deli, and had my usual Beef and Peppers! We went to Dandy Doodlez and each painted some pottery. I amde a Christmas ornament! We drove around that afternoon, made them watch my wedding video, and then hung out that night at Tricia's (after eating cheese sticks from The Grille, of course). Tricia and I ended up staying up till 3 talking! Two nights in a row...just like college all over again. I had so much fun catching up on everyone's lives, and absolutely did not want the weekend to end! I cant wait for football season so I can see everyone more frequently. Once every 7 months just doenst quench my thirst!

I love yall!
