It’s 2:30 am and I just ate dinner. I’m blogging from the road tonight. Heading to Lorain OH and not for vaca…It’s all business folks. My brother and I have been on the road since 4 o’clock and only stopping for bathroom breaks. I just finished my driving session…I had plenty of time to think while my brother was sleeping and it donned on me that I still needed to blog!!!! Thank goodness for iPhones!
We have another 7.5 hours to go before we deliver our load and turn around to head back to Oklahoma. It’s been nice getting to spend time with Brody. It’s probably the most time we’ve spent together since I was in high school. I sure do miss my boys. Can’t wait to get home and get some hugs and kisses.
Well…I’m off to get some rest. Wish us safe travels.
See ya tomorrow!

Hey everyone. We have a great friend staying with us this weekend. She arrived today and we’ve had a great time so far. Her name is Raechel…Hi Racheal!!…she has traveled from Arkansas, just to see us! I feel so special. 🙂

We have a barbecue to attend tomorrow, but no other big plans. We played skip-bo tonight with my granny (sounds super exciting right?!) and had fun. I’m looking forward to just hanging out and enjoying the time she’s here.

Tonight’s a short post. My apologies. Skip-bo wore me out. I’m ready for bed.

Thank God it’s FRIDAY!

Enjoy your weekend.

P.S. Today was our running day. It was easier today than any other day. My only regret was going at noon and it was so HOT!!! Great run though. We’ve officially made it through the first week of Couch to 5k! Yay!!


Well…we’re back from our vacation. We had a great time, but it’s always good to be back home! Wanted to share some of my favorite pictures with everyone. Enjoy!

^We visited my cousin in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. It was beautiful there. We enjoyed a few hours at the beach. The boys loved the water and finding hermit crabs in shells. Besides Mississippi having a ton of gnats, I loved it there.

^Bonus loved playing on the sandy beach.

^Couldn’t leave Mississippi without trying some crawfish! I was very put off by the look of these things, but once I got the courage to try them they were actually pretty tasty. Glad I took the plunge.

We spent a few nights in Mississippi and left for our next destination. It took us about 9 hours of driving to arrive in sunny Florida. The boys did so well in the car while traveling. I was so proud of them and Lucy (our dog) for being such great travelers. It always makes the trip more enjoyable!

^Palm trees!! Clearwater Beach, Fl. It was beautiful here. My only complaint: there is so many people!!! This is different living then little Eureka Springs, Arkansas. We get busy in our tourist season, but nothing compared to the amount of people here. Finding parking was nuts. The white sand was so pretty and the weather was great…windy, but great.

^Look at these little stud muffins. 🙂

^Bonus and Daddy! I mean seriously…those glasses are so freaking cute!

We had a really great time. Visited with our friends that lived in Clearwater. The boys ran around with their kids. We drove over to Tampa one day. It was an amazing time. On our way home we went through Memphis…had to stop for some Memphis BBQ. Talk about delicious. Words cannot even describe how good it was! After a week on the road, we arrived in Eureka a little before midnight. We were all tired and glad to be home in our own bed. Lucy slept for about 2 days straight. I think she was happier than anyone to be home. She is so funny sometimes!
