What is your favorite picture that you have taken? Why? If you're not much into taking photos what is one of your favorite photos that someone else has taken? Why? I have a few favorites: in no particular order here they are. taken at linville falls, north carolina in april 2010 and was actually taken with a motorola cliq phone taken in October 2009 in my mom's neighborhood. I got the cops called on me while taking these pics *oh the memories* I will add a few more pics to this thread in a few..i'm having to dig through flickr. I know of at least 2 more i'd like to include Nichol@7:20 p.m … [Read more...]

ugh it is monday

HI!!! well lets see... this weekend is mostly a blur! I know saturday I went to my parents with david and we had some cubed steak/mashed potatoe/ fresh green beans/biscuits/// was so so so good! I actually bought the meat at harris teeter. Mom said get six pieces..and get this: I ended up with like 3x that lol. The way it was packaged i thought I bought a pack of 3 and a pack of 4. I actually bought a pack of six and a pack of 8! I got it for 15 bucks and mom gave me 10 of it back + I got to bring the extra pack home! Not bad huh? Would you believe david's mom had the nerve to ask us to pitch in to buy david's brother a wii? he's 19 years old for godsake. get a job. buy your own wii? I really have NO clue why she thought david would go for that. We are really starting to cut down and stockpile food and stuff when we can (tomorrow will be david's FIRST FULL check from working in the mountains.) even more is she keeps inviting us to shit and then is sure to mention that her … [Read more...]

What was your favorite toy as a child? MY favorite toy as a child was a doll named crystal! I named her after Crystal Gayle the singer..ok so yeah crystal gayle the singer has loooong hair and she is bald ...

My grandma had this basket of dolls for YEARS before there was ever ME ..and apparently I fell in love with her and my grandma gave her to me. :) … [Read more...]

Veracity Blogathon day 27 : Free Spirt or Stick to it (recipe)

When it comes to cooking are you a free spirit or do you stick to the recipe? Do you follow recipes down to the exact measurement or do you guesstimate and and experiment? Why or why not? I don't really stick to recipes... i'm more the free spirit! I usually adapt recipes like for example the soup that i call THE SOUP ..I make it more of a tomato base and my mom's is more of chicken broth base! I also put more pasta in it than the recipe calls for. go figure! I think with basil chicken I do it totally different as well! I pre do the chicken and cook the rice separate too. def, a free spirit here! … [Read more...]

veracity blogathon day #26: residence

Describe your current place of residence. What do you like and dislike about it? Do you live alone or with someone else? How long do you see you staying at your current residence? Ok, so I just wrote about my apartment a few days ago for the blogathon for My Dream home, (plus not long a go before that, and extra plus I was intending to eventually do a picture/video tour..)So I don't think i'll bore you with rewriting it all over again! I just want to say one extra tidbit: I can't wait till cooler weather when I can open my upstairs windows at night!! that will be awesome..+ during the day too :) I just enjoy cool air the most when trying to go to sleep! I live with my hubs, david and my cat sam. I plan to be here pretty much permanently. I don't think we'll ever have a house of our own..and I like this area /apartment..soooo yeah :) … [Read more...]

Veracity Blogathon Day 25: eating out

When you're not up for cooking or eating at home what restaurants do you generally go to? How often do you go and which ones are your favorites? Places we really like are: Applebees, Olivegarden, Subway, Firehouse Subs, and 4 local places: one's a country style cooking, one is a piza/sub/pita/etc place, one japanese and one chinese. lol I didn't want to give exact names for security reasons! I have really gotten out of eating fast food with the exception of hardees. them and that blasted chicken sandwich! We don't eat at olive garden except special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays. We eat at applebees fairly offten. I also eat at the pizza/sub/pita join at least once every 2 weeks or so. Usually when david gets paid. … [Read more...]
