Two Funny Pictures

For years I have always told my sister that she should be CJ's mother. He acts so much like her. He has her sense of humor... So I posted this picture on My Space and she saw it.

Then she sent me this Text...YOU HAVE MY SON!

Doesn't that just crack you up... They are so silly!

Daughter's New Boyfriend

My daughter and her new boyfriend Jose

Well its been a long month around here.. Before Thanksgiving my daughter broke up with her long term boyfriend Sam...they were together for 17 months.. While I hate when she breaks up with someone because they felt like my son when they are with me all the time.. There were a TON of issues in that relationship.

So she has recently started dating Jose.. He is a nice guy...and I have gotten over losing my "son"
You know I know a lot of people don't believe in dating..but THANK GOD she did date the first one and didn't go into marriage or something like that with him.. I mean it got really bad... So how do you know when someone is the right one?...How long do you date someone...before they show there true colors..
I mean 17 months you would think you would really know someone in the first few months. I tell Brittany everyone you date is a potential mate for the future even though she isn't old enough for that...
I didn't date but two guys in highschool and one of them is my husband....

Cj's 19th Birthday!

Well here it is...Cj's 19th birthday! I like to think I am not that old. We had to get the shirt in the first picture because he is always walking around saying that. He LOVES chocolate covered cherries. He got a few more things but I am not going to post all the boring

I won $100!

How exciting today has been! I went to this shopping center to look around for Christmas ideas... Well our local radio station had a drawing give away... You could win cash cards to Target, Best Buy, Dick's Sporting Goods, Kohl's or Jc Penney... So I wasn't going to do it but my sil was already in line and Brittany went to join her. She later called me to come get in line with her cause you had to be 18. So I did...and it was our turn and we WON $100.... Originally I had won a Kohl's card but they had met their quota on that one so I had to draw again for one of the other stores.. and I won Dick's Sporting Goods...

Lets just say that it was a HUGE Blessing in our lives :)
