The New Mom Jeans

Today we were allowed to wear jeans to work if we paid $5. All the money was going to the Breast Cancer walk some of our employees are participating in tomorrow. We all love jean day so of course I participated. Well I also had to be at work early today to open the front desk which means I work up at 5:15am. I only got 6 hours of sleep.

At 12noon I took my lunch break and went to use the little girl's room. And in there I noticed that my jeans were just horrible, I hated the way the looked on me and the way it made my figure look. They weren't flattering at all, they were actually quite boxy. I remember them being a boot cut, I didn't realize though that was term for boyish. As I am stretching, which by the way is completely normal thing for me to do in the bathroom, squats, leg lifts, a little Tae boe, Anyway that is when I realized...................I had on freaking MAN jeans. Are you serious, I have on Danny's Jeans? Which actually is quite awesome because if anyone has ever met Danny he is a little on the skinny side.

I was so embarrassed that I immediately told at least 5 of my friends, who were also amazed. One of them said, Hey at least he wasn't wearing yours. Now that I would like to see! Nevermind, I wouldn't

So about a month ago, my mom made a silly fashion error and wore her shrug upside down, to a very nice restaurant. We all made fun of her and I said to her quote " How could you do that and not notice" Touche Breanne Touche.

Note to self, no matter what time you get up in the morning, please make sure you grab your own jeans!

My Birthday, Bonfires and Books

2 weekends ago we celebrated my birthday with my side of the family. We had a bonfire, roasted marshmallows made dough boys and ate chili. We started the weekend off by attending the Franklin City Fall Festival. This is a cute picture of the girls with Danny, they thought they were hiding from me but I had my camera ready. You should have heard their squeals (especially Danny :) )

My mom has a tradition where all of us have to take a picture with our cake and candles. 28 about sent to Pumpkin Pie on Fire.

Did you see that cute little girl trying to blow out momma's candles.....

One of my presents was a Nook. I was so excited. I still haven't quite figured everything out but I love it. I am having a hard time figuring out what book to buy. I definitely want to add the KJV Bible but would like suggestions on anything else you think I need to have!

Here I am roasting a dough boy. Thanks to the Butlers for that Tradition. It is basically just a biscuit wrapped around a stick, toast it in the fire then add butter and cinnamon and sugar. Delish!

Lilly kept trying to roast a marshmallow but the smoke was too intense for her, so my sweet aunt shielded her eyes for her.

Here is my mom and pops. They sure know how to throw a great party.


As you can see from her hoodie and sun-kissed tan, she just got back from Hawaii.

By the end of the night the smoke was definitely playing with my eyes too. This is the best of 3 pictures.

On my real birthday my work friends took me out to lunch to Scotty's Brewhouse. The have the most amazing Fried Dill Pickles. Yummy. Well the servers also brought me out a birthday ice cream with a candle. Thankfully they didn't sing or embarrass me!

This weekend we are going to hang out with Danny's side. We, Elaine, are cooking in cast iron skillets over the fire. I am making my hot apple cider and carmel apple salad. I will post those pictures later. Have a great weekend everyone. P.s. I am going to the Colts game on Sunday. Yeah Yeah I know, they are 4-0. But people I am a true Colts fan, not some band wagoner! hehe
