Helllooooooo T.G.I.Friday right everyone? LOL...I have a do-nothing weekend...that doesn't mean I will do nothing of course, but no big plans! We are going to IKEA on Sunday to get some goodies and hopefully find a new headboard for Riley's new bed. I need to get him OUT and in his new room, he's like a giant sleeping in a toddler bed I swear. I look in on him at night and its like the bed and room just SHRUNK with him in it. Plus once he's finally out of his room, I get to take it over as my office #2...whoo hoo. I already have the paint and goodies ready for it ;) and it will match my new blog's "Bitz of Me" color scheme. I hope to find a desk at IKEA for the room and a bookshelf as well...I'm a fan of the Expedit system and we have the black versions in our basement. They hold up well but aren't too expensive. But I'm going junking for an antique buffet that I can paint & rough up for my office too...I want something a bit shabby chic in there for storage. James starts sweating and getting nervous when I talk about this stuff cuz' he knows he's gotta put things together and move things up and downstairs. But I'm TIRED of waiting and Riley is too...so I'm gonna have to push him on this. God love the man but he is not always the most motivated of people on the weekend when I want to tackle projects. I wish I had a project-friend that lived closer so we could work on projects like this together and then trade off...that would be awesome. Usually its me doing it by myself during the day when everyone is gone LOL...which can sometimes lead to all kinds of debacles ahahaha! So stay tuned for that project...it will all be documented on my other blog.
|Pat, Me & Dana last year|
|The Big, Mad, Hissing Gator!|
But I'm really looking forward to flying down to Naples, FL on Wednesday for a week in the sun with my two bestest buddies, Pat Jaynes and Dana Shaw. This will be our third year doing this and we always have a BLAST and always lots of STORIES. Last year our Everglades airboat ran over a GIGANTIC GATOR and we were in the front (dummies that we are) and the guy goes back to see if the gator is ok and pulls up RIGHT NEXT TO HIM...and the gator is HISSING LOUDLY cuz' duhhhh he is PEEVED alrighty. And yours truly is the closest to him freaking out just a teeny bit...ok A LOT...I was pushing Pat & Dana off the end of the bench trying to MOVE AS FAR AS I COULD while those two are laughing hysterically. Then the guide nonchalantly says "yeah did you know gators can jump up to 6 feet, pretty cool huh"....UMMM ARE YOU NUTS...then I was ready to walk on water at that point or run and about to have cardiac arrest. Then they thought I was gonna hold the baby gator when we got back to the center...yeah no..not on my bucket list so don't care and don't wanna and I didn't LOL! Good times...lord knows what may happen to us this time..perhaps we need some prayers yes? ;)
