A Snow Day in Chicago

Today Hubby and I spent the afternoon in Chicago with Hubs, brother, dad and mom. We had a pretty good time. Every Monday and Tuesday for the month of February, it's free admission to all the museums. We picked the Shedd aquarium to go to. I've been to the aquarium in New Orleans, LA and Chattanooga, TN. I think I liked both of those better. But I guess it's all about the people you're with too and not necessarily what you're doing. Right???

Anyway, we had a bit of a snow storm last night and so there was plenty of snow in Chitowne to enjoy. I took quite a few pictures, hope you like them.

I'll have more pictures to upload tomorrow, of the fish:-)

Doing a Little Decorating,Watching Wrestling and Valentine's day

I hope ya'll had a terrific Valentines day. We had company all weekend. Friday we picked up Niko and then Sunday night Phil's family came over to visit and we all watched the TNA wrestling pay per view event together. Well, actually Phil's mom and I watched "The Proposal" in the den, but you get the idea:-)

Anyway, I finally found a entertainment center for my living room. After searching for almost 2 years for the perfect one. We found it on QVC. It has a built in electric fireplace and it is perfect in the space I wanted to place it in. When I get everything all set up, I'll take a picture and show you the completed project.
I also want to get wooden blinds to go throughout my living and dining rooms. I have found some at JCPenny online. I am going to work some extra shifts to get those.

I gotta get ready for work. Have a terrific day.

Yep, It's a Snow Day!!

Last night (Monday) it started snowing. The weather man said "it's going to be a relentless snow". He was right 24hrs later, it's still snowing. It's not supposed to stop until around noon tomorrow (Wednesday).

Handy had fun out in it today. I didn't have quite as much fun. Note to self, when getting snow off the car, try not to wipe it towards self, because the wind will blow it all in your face. (yep, I had that happen.) This southern girl, still has a lot to learn, when it comes to snow.

It's a Who Dat Kinda Day!!!

Wow, I can't believe 2 months have passed since my last post. I have been soooo, busy. I started a new part-time job at a local hospital. I really like it. I have been able to pick up extra hours, so I have really been working full-time. Also during this time, we have had drama going on with Hubby's ex-wife. Does it ever end? We've been to court and have court again at the end of this month. I'll tell you this though. I have definitely been able to see God's hand working in all of this mess.

I had a biopsy done on my face. I had a spot that used to be a freckle, but turned into a big itchy place. Thankfully it was benign. And Niko was in the hospital for 2 weeks, and then Hubby had surgery on his knee this past Friday. Whewww, that's a lot of stuff going on.

A bright spot in everything is, THE SAINTS!! WON the SUPER BOWL!! WOOO HOOO!!

WHO DAT SAY THEY GONNA BEAT DEM SAINTS? WHO DAT? WHO DAT? You should have seen me jumping up and down and hollering last night. I've been a Saints fan all my life, it has finally paid off. :-)

Hope ya'll have a good day. Please bear with me as I am doing my blog make over!!
