Boys and Girls

Last Night, I went to Sharon's house. I met Heather, Jason, Littleman Luke, and Brooke. It was great meeting you guys!!!! I really enjoyed myself......We ate pizza, chatted, and watched the little boys take over the house. It was wonderful!!! One of my favorite things in life is to watch children play so I can hear their laughter! I adore it when kids "belly laugh". It was great watching the children interact with each other.......Luke was the independent one, Camden the Comedian (I love Camden's dog imitation), and Noah the hyper exhausted one. Sharon, Thanks so much for inviting me over! Next time, I will host!!!

Here's the question of the day: How come girls have to suffer to be beautiful???? Yesterday afternoon, I waxed my lip. It's the worst PAIN I have ever experienced! I always feel like my face is going to completely fall off......It brings tears to my eyes, and it makes me hate being a woman (for a few seconds anyway)! Why do I still wax? Well, let's just say, I do not want to end up like Aunt Mildred at the age of 50 with half a beard! Gross! I will suffer to be beautiful! Boys have it so much easier than girls in the beauty department!!!

Estate Sales

Friday Night, I went to Dinner at Paesano's for Heather's birthday......and dinner was great, and the company so much better!!! On Saturday, I went to Estate Sales with my friends Linda and John. I had a great time! I love going to Estate Sales.....although I did not buy anything, I had a ball! It's kinda weird to walk thru someone's house, and look at all their belongings and watch people go wild about it all. I wonder if I ever had a Estate Sale, would people "fight" all over my precious, wonderful things. I just love my little apartment! I keep trying to add new things constantly......but since I only live in a one bedroom, my home is beginning to fill up quite quickly! At this moment, I do not have any more wall space........no bare walls in my home, it's kinda weird!! Anyway, on Saturday we ate lunch at Celebration...and it was YUMMY! I love Celebration.....I had the Jamaican Jerk Chicken...and it was spicy and wonderful! I rented a movie Saturday night, and I was resting on the sofa no later than about 8pm.......it was blissful! Sunday, I went to church.......and Pastor Bruce's message was great! Bruce is constantly on fire about Christ! He's amazing!

The count down begins: 20 days until my birthday!!! WooHoo.......I am so excited!!! I just love my birthday!!!

Allergic to Boo.....

On Wednesday night, I was cleaning, doing laundry, taking care of the animals, and trying not to start too many projects before I go to bed. So, I decided it was bed time around 11:30p, I take out the dogs, and I come back in. I give BooBoo Kitty his eye medicine. And the drama starts. First, I must say....I am allergic to BooBoo.....I have been allergic since day one.....so, why do I have a cat???? The reason is I simply love & adore the bitter old cat! So, after I give BooBoo his eye drops, I feel I am completely covered in his fur...GROSS! I changed my clothes, rubbed my eye, and then washed my hands......Let's just say, I should have washed my hands first......My right eye started to swell, and my pupil started turning 10 shades of red. I am sure it did not help that I kept rubbing the eye to "make" it feel better!!! I was going to take Benadryl, use allergy eye drops on myself, and then go to bed. I had no Benadryl in the house, so I go to Kroger at Midnight with my eye about to fall out of my head, and the Lady behind the counter asked who punched me in the face. At first I was shocked she even asked, but all I could do was laugh, and tell her my cat did it. I finally get home, take the Benadryl, and go to bed. When I woke up yesterday morning, and my eye is not any better! I looked like someone beat me up yesterday morning......I was a sad sight yesterday.........I took more benadryl, and used more eye drops, and went to work......by about 3pm, my eye was much better....Praise God.
This morning my eye is back to normal.......Thank God for small favors!

Last Night, I took Gumbo up to the TCo team. The TCo team means so much too me with all they do for my church. I truly appreciate their talents, and their love of Christ. I am truly blessed to have this service, and everyone involved in the TCo team in my life. I pray to God no one got sick from the Gumbo!!! If I do say so myself, it was GREAT gumbo. I have been on a cajun cooking frenzy........Since I went home for Christmas, all I want to eat is cajun this or cajun that. I need to stop with this addiction before I turn into gumbo!

I have a very relaxing weekend planned. I am going to dinner tonight to celebrate my friend, Heather's, birthday! Tomorrow, I might go to a couple estate sales......then again maybe not.....I am definitely renting movies tomorrow night to have a Tammy night at home alone! I am so looking forward to relaxing and enjoying my time. I also will go to the library tomorrow to pick up my next book club book! I do want to read the book this time! I am bad about reading every book! Oh well, I really love going for the girl time, and if I do not read the book, then I simply don't read it. I read about half the books, and that's just fine with me! So, I will start on the new book this weekend! Sunday is church. A great relaxing weekend will be great!

God Bless!

Why I can not say NO?!

Well, I agreed to be on another committee at church this week.........I am on the Worship Team, and now the Church Life team. I love being on the worship team, and I think the Church Life Team will be a little freaked out with my ideas about doing things a little different this year. I pray they will listen with open hearts.

My weekend was good. I even took a nap on Saturday afternoon! I never take naps.......there is always something to do......so naps are normally out of the question. It was great relaxing and sleeping, even my dogs took a nap during that time.

I went to see Fun with Dick and Jane on Saturday......It was a cute movie, but it should have been a rental! I had a good time with my friend, Deb.

I can not believe it's been over 6 months since MawMaw died. It amazes me how quickly time passes. It seems like yesterday I was flying home to attend her funeral. My family and I have been through so much in the last several months. MawMaw's death, Hurricane Katrina, Aunt Shirley's death, Hurricane Rita, and now my Step-Brother, Jeff, is extremely ill! I am very thankful we all have God in our hearts........How do people manage life with Christ Jesus? I am amazed each day at the mighty works God does in my life, and the lives of my family and friends. We are all so truly blessed.........Thank You God for all you have done for us, and all you will continue to do!

This upcoming weekend will be very quiet! Praise God.....Friday night, I am going to my friend Heather's bday party and Saturday morning, I am going to bible study........and that's all I have planned! It's going to be a great weekend........I might go rent some movies!

God Bless, and Big Hugs!

Celebrating my 3rd Annual 29th Birthday

Oh My Goodness! I just realized in 32 days, on Saturday, Feb. 18th, I will celebrate my 32nd birthday. How did I get into my 30's? Better yet, how did I get to wear the badge of honor of being 32?! Time flies by so very quickly! I will have to decide what I will do on my birthday. I took a vacation day on Friday the 17th......a 3 day birthday weekend is going to be great! My 20's were good, and so far my 30's have been great! Praise God for good health, great family & friends, and my precious little pups, Abby & Phoebe! So, if anyone ask........I am only 29!

Weekend Bliss.

I had a great weekend! On Friday, I went to dinner with some friends.........Saturday afternoon, I went to see Glory Road with Josh Lucas! Oh my goodness, Josh Lucas is one incredibly good actor......In everything, Josh does he is simply amazing! He has stunning beautiful eyes! Praise God for Josh! Glory Road is a GREAT movie.......Everyone must go see it!

At church, Pastor Shannon preached about are you listening to God or are you listening to the noise around you......it was a great sermon! It completely hit home......how many times do I just pray and walk away from the prayer......how many times do I have the TV or radio on when I should be listening to God.......How many times do I know it's God talking to me, and I just ignore it........how many times do I simply not listen? Heavenly Father, Please forgive me........Please help me listen, help me to understand what you want me to do, and help me to carry out YOUR Will!

Until next time........listen to our Father.

Change of Life

WOW, this week has completely flown by! I am doing great on my eating this week.......low carb, low fat, lots of water, no sugar and walking the dogs more! I am actually proud of myself...........If I can keep up the pace, I will lose the weight I need to lose! Go Tammy, Go Tammy! It has not even been difficult so far....Praise GOD! I do need to start trying some new recipes. I have a recipe for a sugar free, fat free orange dream cheesecake.......it sounds wonderful...I pray it is good. I need to start trying some new lunch and supper recipes! I will start looking for new "diet" recipes today! If anyone has a great low-calorie recipe, please send it my way!!!

I will write more tomorrow.......it's lunch time! God Bless!

The Good Old Days.

I was flipping through some old pictures this weekend.......It's amazing how my life has changed, and how God has blessed me with some really amazing friends..........This is a picture of my friends Scott, April and me! I went to visit Scott and April for Thanksgiving......it was amazing waking up every morning and looking out the window and looking at God's beautiful masterpiece.

Heather this is for you.........

I am a member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. It is not affiliated with church or school. The Sorority is a Social Club.....My Mom has been a member for 25+ years, and last year I decided to join. It's been a great experience! You can check out the website at www.betasigmaphi.org

Being Sick in NEVER fun!

Well, it's official........I am sick! I have a head cold! My nose will not stop running, my eyes are watering like little fountains, and my head is about to fall off due to all the pressure. Here's the weird part.........how come only my right eye waters when I am sick??? I am simply a complex bundle of sickness this week.........The only thing I wanted to do is sleep and watch chic flicks!

Yesterday, I was leaving work...........and two men were walking in my direction, and I looked up, and one of the guys smiled at me with a cute, goofy smile, so of course, I had to smile and wink at him......as I pasted him, he smelled so good, I almost turned around and followed him! Anyway, as I looked back to look at him, he turned and looked back, too!!! I am one hot sexy sick babe!!!!! Hopefully, I will see him again soon! My PawPaw's Assistant, Karen, told me yesterday she "feels" like I am going to meet my future husband this year..........I asked her did she have a direct phone line to God........Karen said it was just a feeling she had!!! Lord, Please bless my future Husband.........May he be happy and healthy in your Spirit!

I had my Sorority Meeting Last night. For most of the meeting, the Ladies agrued about money! I understand money is important especially since our bank account is so low right now, but did we have to discuss it for over an hour last night...........yuk! It took me about 45 minutes to even get to Lorraine's house, let's just say, my sense of direction at night is horrible! I need someone to drive places at night! Other than the money talk, I had a good time last night....It's always good to see my Sisters...........I am going over to Leigh's Saturday night to discuss my pledging! I am looking forward to it!!!

God Bless........

A New Year, A New Life

I simply can not believe it is 2006! 2005 flew by so very quickly!!! It's amazing the older I get the more time passes more quickly!

On New Years's Eve, I went to Deb and Robert's house. We played a couple of games, ate, and watched a not so funny movie, The Party. Deb said it was so funny, and I thought it was so boring! Sorry Deb..........but it made me fall asleep!!! I work up about 10pm after my little nap, and then Deb and I stayed up until about 12:05am.........We were so tired we went to bed! In my younger days, I could stay up until the wee hours in the morning, and now I have officially become old! LOL!

I am excited about 2006............I have my resolutions all planned out........growing my faith, a diet (oops a life style change), excersise, and finding a husband!

Good Luck to everyone with your New Resolutions!

God Bless!
