She's officially double digits!

My niece has turned 10, well not officially til Sunday, but she's already had her party, so she might as well be 10. Anyway, we pimped out to Byram to the luai at the Pizza Hut. My poor sis in law is about to pop... and she was woar (pronounce woah) out.

Had to get a pic of hubby and wifey.

Madison, and her two cousins, Mary Grace and Anna Claire.

My cousin, Allison and me in the other room, avoiding all the chaos.

Dad thought Sara Beth would like to take a picture together. Dad told me to paste it on Facebook and say he was her boyfriend.

Taking it to South Jackson

So, we represented the SO to the Jizay this past weekend. BFF and I drugged our husbands and forced them to come to the ever so classy Reed Pierces in Byram. Look at the guys in this pic, they can't deny what an awesome time they had. BFF and I should have worn our South Jackson shirt. CRAP.
Look at these guys.. they are living it up. I even convinced Mom and Pops to join in on the fun. We pretty much just people watched all night. Even ran into some of the most random people ever.. a cousin of mine that lives in Magee, Celeste Sutherland, Brad Vice (my 8th grade boyfriend), Chris Snells dad, Ben Malley, and the list goes on. I had no idea it was the place to be!

Saranne's classy sister even humped the floor on several occassions. Too bad I didn't get a shot of that.

However, I did get a shot of the BFF, her mom and sister juking it out on the dance floor.

I'm not sure what this move is BFF, but you gotta teach me.. That's pretty much one of a kind there.

Coastin' to the Coast

So, the Windham clan decided to take a mini vacay... Well, it was a vacation for most of us. Tom (FIL) and Ben (BIL) had to actually do work.. but the rest of didn't. So, here is Tiffnee (as Ben calls her) and me after eating lunch at Schooners. Let me just say, there's not a wide variety of places to eat since Katrina made her debut almost 4 years ago. There are no pictures of the night before because we trusted Nelly the Navigator to take us to a place to eat.. but driving around with a 3 year old who is hungry for almost an hour and Nelly taking us to places destroyed by the hurricane.. pictures did not make it to the forefront of my mind.. eating did!!
When we went to Florida a few weeks ago and stayed with The Jones', they do this fabulous wine and cheese each night on the beach. Tiffany and I absolutely fell in love with the idea. Tiffany decided we would do it while we were on the coast.. so we found this awesome cheese place called Epicure and loaded up on some cheeses. Then we headed to a liquor store to stock up on some wine.. we had to keep the party indoors due to the impending rain.. but since we had an ocean view.. it seemed like we were on the beach!Riley wanted to participate, so we gave her some wine (apple juice) in her own little wine glass. She thought she was on top of the world.. *make note, she did down that apple juice rather quickly. I think her parents might want to be a bit concerned.

This is Josh and me after eating at Mary Mahoney's.. which by the way BLOWS. We have eaten there twice and it has pretty much sucked both times.

On the way home, it stormed, but in the end there was a double rainbow.. now that made my day!

The celebrations continue..

MMM... Mary Beth made some more cupcakes for another "BFF Birthday Celebration"
Look how pretty they were..

Look, BFF is sporting her South Jackson shirt that her BFF got her.. and she wanted to even go as far as pretending like she still lived there.. so she threw up the deuces. Awesome. MB and I just wanted a picture.

This guy's ( I refer to him as a guy because I have no idea who he was) dog decided he was hungry.. so he wanted to lick on the dirty plates. I guess he was successful because he later threw up on BFF's floor.

It's BFF's Birthday.. like we didn't know!!

So, if you don't already know, BFF's birthday is like the biggest holiday of the year... no joke. She mostly just rambles on about her birthday, makes some ridiculously long wish list and then terrorizes the rest of the world about how it's her birthday! (Sorry BFF, just giving you grief)

So, for the annual event, since this is the first year I have actually lived here and been able to celebrate the momentous occassion.. I decided cupcakes were a must. So, being the Betty Crocker that I am, I whipped up some fab cupcakes with almond icing.. and if I must say so myself, they were delish! I had to give my cupcakes a shoutout!

Moving right along, if you don't know that Saranne and I married two friends from Rankin County, well now you know. They give us all kinds of grief because A. we are from Hinds County which is not nearly as cool as Rankin County B. we are from Byram and they technically consider that "South Jackson" and C. we are BFF and that requires a lot of time being spent together.

So, Jenny P and I were perusing around Chane in Fondren the other day and I spotted it.. The light shone down from the sky.. and there it was.. BFF's birthday present.. The most perfect gift EVER.. so perfect.. I got myself one. See below!

I couldn't resist it when this lady stood up and had a serious wedgie.. Those aren't shorts.. it's a skirt with a serious problem.. called "you should wear panties so you don't have people take pictures of your awful wedgie"

Well, to top of the night, BFF, being the most graceful individual ever, slung one of her gifts out of the car and onto the ground. She broke the candle holder. So, we went to great measures to save this thing. I am talking hardcore here. We hammered the rest of her candle, put on some rubber gloves and removed all the glass, dug my old candle holder out of the garbage can(it was at the bottom in nastiness), heated it up in a pot to get all the old wax out, cleaned it out, and then cut her candle to fit it "nicely" in the "new" candle holder. Well, it pretty much looks like guacamole in a bowl now.. but this picture is when we got out the ole cutting board and went to town to get the candle in the jar.. Geez louise... remind me not to do that again.

*make note: BFF has already sported her SOUTH JACKSON shirt. Thanks for making me proud and representin'!!!!

The end is near...

Seems like Faxima the Maxima has taken a turn for the worst...
She hasn't been feeling so well these last few weeks and her doctor visits have been costing us an arm and a leg. We haven't even seen her for three weeks since she has been at the hospital. She may come out alive.. but if she does.. she's heading to a local parking lot with a for sale sign on her.

*Also, make note, my husband is loving this seeing as how I refused to let him have a truck.. looks like his wish is coming true after all my huffing and puffing.
