My babies (but not MINE)

My youngest baby just turned one last Wed - Mr. Brady Dean
(my best friend Jamie's little boy)

He's giving my niece Ava a ride - I told him he is too young to be picking up girls!!

Then my baby girls - both born in August 2007

The blur is Annabelle, my cousin's dog doing a drive by for scraps
aren't the girls cute eating together!??

Isabelle Marie McCaleb - age 18 months (2 weeks younger than Ava)
She is my cousin Nicki's little girl
and sometimes she looks at you like you are crazy (so cute!)
Next is my niece Ava Grace Martin
showing my Mom her "if you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it"

Little things that make my day

I am easily amused and I think life is more fun when you stop and enjoy or laugh at the little things!

  • Silly conversations:

Conversation Friday with a co-workers (an attorney and another legal assistant)

Rita: When I was little my mom used to say "You poor persecuted thing."

Max: Oh, how funny, was that when you decided you wanted to work in the legal field when you grew up?

Rita: No! When I was little I wanted to be PAT BENATAR!!

(she said this with such seriousness - I laughed til I cried)

  • Shout outs in other people's Blogs:

(so I return the favor - Thanks Natalie!!)

I would like to introduce you to one of the MANY talented artists I have met in Nashville:

I met Natalie when I worked at 2 Doors Down, a sports bar that used to be on Demonbreun. Natalie & her band played there almost every weekend. If you have never heard her - please please go to her site now and check her out. SUPER TALENTED!

At her shows she does an awesome mix of her stuff & fun covers (my favorite - her version of CRAZY) and is truly a great entertainer! I have had the privelege of seeing her play MANY nights at the sports bar, the Jack Daniels Saloon at Opry Mills, and even at a Predators Game.

Natalie provided me with a new football good luck charm/recipe - go to her blog to check it out!

  • I'm going to a Predators Game tonight
  • and last but not least - things to make my day:

Getting to have lunch with my Mom!

Brittany and Jamie's Day of Fun

If you are a FRIENDS addict
(then insert Janis voice and remember "Joey & Janis's Day of Fun!")
If this is not funny to you then you should go rent (or borrow from me) all ten seasons of Friends right now!! (Sorry everything can be a FRIENDS quote in my head :) )
Last Sat was GORGEOUS and very "un-February" (temp in 60's)

So, Jamie (my best friend) and I took my favorite little man to the park

Brady (Age 11.5 months)


Seriously cutest little boy ever!!

Allergic Reaction

It all started with a little stomache ache. For 2 days I thought I had a touch of food poisoning.

Next day itchy splotchy wrists - this only lasted an hour.

Next night itchy splotchy arms - 2 hours later - itchy red eyes - legs - back - from the neck down covered in HIVES :(

Look how purple and swollen my eyelids are!

any my neck was very red and itchy!

After 2 hours 2 benedryls I drove myself to the ER and had the best ER experience imaginable.
(except for the $80 co-pay)
They got me back right away and within 20-30 minutes they had an IV in me pumping me with Super benedryl, pepcid (who know that would help?) and steriods.
30 minutes later I was feeling WAY better and the red was now a faint pink and the welps and hives were fading!

Today feeling brand new!

What's your worst/ or best ER experience?
