Tag! You're It!!

Thanks to my dear friend Sally who tagged me as one of her most Kreativ Bloggers! Sally, I have been working on this all week... I don't think I am very interesting. Basically, the award requires that you blog 6 interesting facts about yourself and then tag 6 friends to do the same!
So here are some interesting facts about me:
1. I have really weird knees. They hyperextend (bend backwards more than they should). I'll show you some time.
2. I have a really, really weird eye trick. My eyes can roll so far back in my head that you can't see the pupils. Sometimes I can even get them to go opposite ways...
3. I'm double jointed in my wrists so my fingers can touch my forearms.
4. Ok, so I'm in an arranged marriage... Our grandparents were best friends. My dad and Cliff's mom grew up together. My dad and his dad were roommates in college. Do you think they planned this? ha ha!
5. My secret wish is... to be on BROADWAY! The bad part of that wish is I can't sing very well and I really can't dance either.
6. My other secret wish is... to be the First Lady of MS or the US! If that ever happens we're having a sleepover in the Governor's Mansion/White House!
Well, that is enough about me! Some of it is not so interesting but some of it is... :) I am going to tag Fran, Jessica, Mary Stratton, Allie, Meg, and Becky as recepients of the Kreativ Blog Award! Have fun!

THS Class of '98

I know, I know... It's been a while and you've probably stopped checking this thing. Well, we've been a little busy. Cliff's been in the middle of mid-terms so he's studying like CRAZY! Any extra minutes he has I want to spend with him, so I haven't posted in a while. 

A few weekends ago Cliff and I headed to Tupelo for my 10 year high school reunion. It's crazy to think that I've been out of high school for 10 YEARS!!! It doesn't seem like that long but at the same time it seems like it's been forever. It was good to see all of my old classmates, and catch up with those that I haven't seen since we graduated. Best of all I got to see my BFF Becky, hubby Mark and son Asher! I was very excited about getting to see them since it's been about 6 months... :) Time flies... Here are a few pics from the weekend:

Havin' a good time!

Bek and Mark dancin' the night away!

Wine faced and sunburned - bad combo! But my hubby looks great!

Becky and me

Needless to say we had a great time and I'm looking forward to the next one!

I know...

I'm a bad blogger... It's been over a month and I have not posted a THING! However, Cliff and I have been busy little bees. Cliff quit his job, we have been on vacation (a week in San Fran and Sonoma; beautiful!), Cliff started law school, my business has picked back up (praise the good Lord!), we hosted a baby shower, finished a deck, ran a race, and I started my Jr. League project. So what have you been up to, hmmm? :) Anyway, I will blog more about my adventures (and misadventures) soon and hopefully have pics to go along with my vacation blog. Hope all of my blogger buddies are doing well!

Happy Anniversary to us!

Happy Anniversary Baby! I got you on my mind...

The 4th of July!

There are several reason I love July 4th...

1. We get to celebrate the independence of our country (I"m proud to be an American!)
2. We get to eat yummy food (aka - watermelon and hot dogs)
3. We get a day off work
4. Cliff and I started dating on the 4th back in 1998. I cannot believe it has been 10 years but it has definitely been fun and interesting.

Now I have a new reason to celebrate: I finished my first 5K! It wasn't my best time but I finished... I will definitely continue to run and plan to run this race every year. I hope you all had wonderful 4ths!

The one where I run

OK... Please say lots of prayers for me tomorrow. I am running my first 5K! For some of you, a 5K is not a big deal, but for me it's a HUMONGOUS deal... Cliff and I started training back in the spring and he has already run 1 and done a triathlon. I'm more of a chicken. I was supposed to run the same one that he ran a few weeks ago but got sick. Talk about disappointed! Anyway, wish me luck and say lots of prayers! I'm a little on the nervous side... I'll post pictures when I get done. :)

The update

OK, so I know it's been a while... Sally just fussed at me about it. Things have been as crazy as ever in the Agnew house. We are getting ready to build a deck (for fabulous summer parties that you are all invited to), get a new roof and decking on our house, maybe completely redo the plumbing (because the water pressure stinks!), and possibly get a new air conditioner (since we cannot keep our house cool). So if you want some deck experience, come help us! There will be steaks and cold beer at the end...

By the way, a little 411 for y'all... I took Mo walking on Sunday afternoon, and he started limping on Monday morning. By the end of the day he coudn't put any weight on his foot. I took him into to vet Tuesday morning and his little paws got burned on the asphalt from our walk on Sunday. Lesson learned... The vet said to make sure if you walk your animals to do it in the morning or evening when it starts to cool off. I felt like such a bad mother, but who would have thought that his paws would be burned?

Anyway, hope this finds all of you well. I promise to try to do better about posting. Maybe next time I'll add pictures. Take care and hope to see all of you soon!

The one with a realization

I was drying my hair on Friday, and I happened to look over a wall hanging in my bathroom. It has the ABCs of life on it, and C was Count Your Blessings. As long as I have had that wall hanging, I've never noticed this part of it. It got me to thinking about all of the blessings in my life, and I realized I have nothing in this world to complain about. I have a wonderful husband, dog and family that I could not live without. I have friends that love, support and stand beside me in any situation. I have a house to give me shelter, food to fill up my tummy, clothes so y'all don't have to see my naked body, and so many other things that make my life easy. There is so much for me to be grateful for and I have so many blessings in my life that I take for granted every day. God is so GOOD! In fact, He is so GREAT! So I challenge you to take time to count your blessings and thank God for each and every one of them every day! It's something so simple but can make your day so much better...

The one where I caved

So I caved... I admit it, I didn't want to do this at first. However, I have really enjoyed keeping up with y'all, and I thought y'all might like hearing what we have been up to as well. So far, my dear friend Sally has really helped me get started. I hope that our blog can live up to the standards of my fellow bloggers and be just as wonderful as all of yours. Take care and check back for more posts soon!!
