Thursday Thirteen



This cute header is compliments of TNChick She has them up to share for her TT this week. Please swing by and check out her talent and if you use one please give her credit for her hard work.


THIRTEEN THINGS HAPPENING IN STORM'S WOLRD!!

1. Today is my post Op visit.

2. My Mema is having knee surgery today.

3. My cousin Mike's little girl is having surgery to put tubes in her ears. (must be the day to go to the dr. lol)

4. This is the last week for lil one to be in school this year.She will be moving on to be a big third grader.

5. I passed my inspection at work and got a 100% again :) ...yeah!!!

6. Guppy is going to be getting Baptized the last weekend in June. We have to get his paperwork done and faxed to them this by Friday and then he will go film his video tape next weekend :) I am so proud of him.

7. We are planning a camping trip to New Braunfels, Tx to go tubing on the Guadalupe River.

8. I got a smoothie recipe book yesterday and am excited about trying some out. Lil one and I LOVE making and drinking smoothies. The recipes I got are for different things. There are some to relief stress, insomnia, menstral cramps etc... Most of them look soooooo good.

9. Swimming last weekend spoiled me and I want a pool again so badly. I grew up with one and loved it. I am a fish when it comes to that. I could stay in the water all day. We are trying to talk my MIL and FIL into building one at their house. So far it has not worked because my MIL hates chlorine.. BOO!!!

10. I so need to get caught up on laundry.

11. A few of my friends from work are seriously thinking about and looking into starting our own business. We are doing the research right now. Looking into grants and supppliers and whatnot. Any advice from anyone that has tried it or has their own now?

12. We are wanting to open a Scrapbooking store.

13. Astrosprincess bought me the book "look great,feel great" by Joyce Meyers that I have been wanting. I have already started reading it. It has so many great helpful tips for becoming healthier. Lots of nutritional info in there. I am excited :)



Bonus: Alot of people were wondering who the pic was on my Wordless Wednesday. It is Taylor Hicks...He is the new American Idol. I am so happy that someone I wanted to win actually did. It is the first year for that ..for me.

and I know Tamwill and a few others were wondering what the flower was that is growing out of the tree in our back yard. I posted it during the Saturday Photo Hunt. It is a type of Bromeliad but I am not sure what exactly it is called. We put it in the tree were there was a little hole/knot thingie. It did not just grow there wildly. I know someone asked that too. We planted one small one and now there is like six big ones. It seems to really like it's home there in that tree. That type of plant only flowers once in its life. The blooms last a very long time and it has so many babies that you get to keep enjoying it.

{bro·me·li·ad Audio pronunciation of "Bromeliad" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (br-ml-d)
n.

Any of various mostly epiphytic tropical American plants of the family Bromeliaceae, usually having long stiff leaves, colorful flowers, and showy bracts. Bromeliads include the pineapple, the Spanish moss, and numerous ornamentals.}

  6. Officially, you know, Guppy is being baptized AGAIN. But what is this video? I've never heard of this before.

    If you can get past my aversion to chlorine, you'd still have to get past the Professor's to spending money. It might be easier to dig your own!

    Be careful to do the right smoothies at the right time -- you know, don't make the anti-cramps one for the Little Angel. lol

  7. maybe your mil/fil could put in a salt water pool, one of my neighbors has one, had to truck the water in for it, but no chlorine to deal with.
    good luck with your post op appointment

    It is so great that Guppy will get baptized in June.
    I try to at least wash one or two loads of laundry during the week. - Makes a little easier on the weekend. - Yeah LONG weekend coming up!!!!
    I wish you the best of getting your own business. Working for others really takes the fun out of working - lol...I hope that you and your co-workers can figure out a way to be on your own.

  17. I love a pool too. I remember when Tim and I were first married we lived in an apt. We lived in apartments for about 4 years of our marriage until now. And all of those apts. had their own pool. When I was pregnant with Emily it seemed like I just lived in it. I miss being able to use a pool so much.
