Hooters and Razorbacks

Well, it's Feb. 18th and there's about 4 inchs of snow on the ground. It's been a great day lazing around the house. I'll get to that in a sec.

Last night was one of the best nights out I've had in a very long time. Steve, the kids and I took my dad to Hooters for his birthday. My mom and lil brother and sister also came along. My dad has never been to Hooters before, due to my mom not finding the place somewhere she would ever want to eat. Last night, I proved her wrong. When we got there, we were seated next to 4 or the Arkansas Razorbacks. It was AWESOME. Brayden is a Razorback fan and so he thought it was very cool to see them. We ordered our food and had a great waitress. My dad was so funny. Because of how my mom is with Hooters, everytime that the waitress came over to refill their coffee my dad would look away. It was hilarious. It was like he didn't want to be caught by my mom for checking her out. My mom thought it was quite humorous also. Our food came, and everyone really enjoyed it. My mom said that it was the best philly cheese steak sandwich that she had ever had.

The highlight of the evening was after we got through eating. Brayden finally got the courage up to talk to the Razorbacks sitting at the table right next to us. A couple more had come in since we had got there. Brayden spoke with the players, shook their hands, and just had a blast. Payton also got in on some of the action talking to a couple of them. The players that we met were # 41 De'Andre Bryant, #95 Fred Bledsoe, #91 Anthony Brown, #62 Michael Aguirre, and #58 Joey Crossland. There were a couple more, but I don't remember their names. They were so good to the kids - and just made their night a very memorable one.

After we left, it started ice raining. We ran to Wal-Mart to pick up some essentials, as we knew that snow was heading our way. Once we got home, my mom called and admitted that she was wrong about Hooters and that her and my dad really enjoyed themselves. She even referred to where she would rather sit the NEXT time that we went.

This morning when I woke up - I saw the snow outside and decided it was a great day for a lazy "home" day. The kids and I played on the computer. I made waffles for breakfast. Sat and did some drawing with Payton after, then made lunch, took a nap with Brayden, chatted on the net while Steve was making dinner, and just got done watching a movie. It's been a good day. This morning I got online and looked up the Razorbacks that we met to show the kids. They thought that it was neat seeing their pictures on the internet. Being that the snow isn't going anywhere, I plan on doing the same thing tomorrow. Except, I've got to through laundry on the list to do tomorrow.

Till next time. :)

Birthday time

Wow, I can't believe we're already in the middle of February. Seems like only a couple of days ago it was Christmas. Well, another birtday has been and gone. I am now 24 years old and feeling every minute of it.

The past week has been a drag. Steve and I have both been very sick with the flu. I've taken the past couple of days to recoup and I've definately needed it. We're both starting to feel a little better, just weak and tired. Seems like it's that time of year for all the sickness going around. Seems like everyone at work has had it or has it now.

Steve and I have finally started the process for our new house.. YEA!!!! We went down to the office a couple of weeks ago to fill out the paperwork. We're now just waiting for their credit consulting company to do some magic with Steve's credit to get us approved. The guy that is working with us said that it shouldn't take more than a month or so which is very exciting. It would be great to be moving into our house in a couple of months. I'm so ready to get out of this tiny apartment. We've definately out grown it - and it's definately time the kids had a room of their own.

The kids are doing good. Brayden has been extra good at school the past week. He has earned all of his "reward sticks" every day - which is a first for him. He's soaking up the attention that Steve and I are giving him for being so good, so maybe he'll keep it up. Well, not much more to report right now. We're taking my dad to Hooters next weekend for his birthday - maybe I'll post after that.
