Ice cream, anyone?

What does a girl have to do to get a milkshake?

Last night my friend, Karla, and I were driving home from a concert and decided to stop for a Sonic late night treat.

It went something like this...

Sonic lady: whatever they normally say.

Me: I'll take a small chocolate shake and a small Reese's blast.

Sonic: I'm sorry, but we are out of ice cream.

Me: Wait, what? You don't have any ice cream?

Sonic: No, we just ran out.

Me: oh, well ok. nevermind then.

me to karla---is that even possible?


We were determined to get some ice cream.

McDonalds (not great shakes, but it will do.)


McD: whatever they normally say.

Me: Hold on just a second, I'm not ready yet.

At this time all the lights at McDonalds go out. I could no longer read the screen to decide what i wanted. NOTHING. I didn't even have time to see if they still had the triple thick milkshakes.

Me: umm hello? wait I hadn't ordered yet. Are you closed?

---All lights come back on...

Mcd: Can i take your order

I give them my order...we made it!

Once up to the window, i asked if they were closing. Sure enough they were (even though their window say 24-hour drive-thru, but who reads things anyways?) and he closed and locked the window.

It was like God was telling me I didn't need a milkshake, but I did. And although I only ordered a small shake, I got a large. You know, when you order a sweet tea and they give you a HUGE cup, ya my milkshake came in that cup.

Successful night!

I LOVE my job!

This has been one great week! My awesome boss, Kary, gave me 4 tickets to the Carrie Underwood Concert. I took 3 of my girl friends and we had a great time. I also planned an event for Chesapeake Mom and kids. We went to the Orr Family Farm-Pumpkin Patch. I am so blessed to have an awesome job that allows me to plan these event and hang out with some great people.

Update on Charlie: He is eating. Still giving him wet food, but he has started to eating his dry food. Fingers crossed.

I just want to give a shout out to Charlie for never letting us down. Charlie has lost 8 pounds. He is super skinny. He has not been eating for the past couple weeks. When I picked him up from Camp bow wow they told me they had trouble getting him to eat. So, they put a little wet food with his dry food and he seemed to eat a little bit. Well this has continued and I was starting to get concerned because he is SO SKINNY. Today I took him into the vet to figure this mystery out. $332 dollars later we still have no answer. Atta Boy Charlie! I came home with some prescription wet food. And of course, HE LOVED IT! Ooooh Charlie! The Vet says he needs to gain some weight. So he may be on wet food for a little bit till he gains about 10 pounds. If we don't see a difference by the end of the week, we have to go back in and do x-rays. Fingers crossed. If he does have to get x-rays his godfather, Kyle, said he would take care of that bill. So sweet!!!!! Thanks Kyle!

Wonderful Trip to Kentucky!

Kenna and Hudson meeting for the first time!
Getting practice! :)
Mikki finally gets to hold Hudson!
So sleepy!
From his aunt manda and uncle brian!
Dara is due December 12 (or sometime around that time). She is all belly! So cute!
Ann teaching me how to iron again because according to Brian, " Mom doesn't do it that way" "Mom does it like this", "are you sure this is how mom does it", "I'm pretty sure mom doesn't use that end of the iron" So, while having dinner with the Ed and Ann.. I had Ann give me lessons once again. :) I won't go into detail about my response to Brian that night, but I'm pretty sure I let him know that "I'm not your mom" :) We all got a good laugh out of this one! (a month later, of course!)
Every time I come in Carmen and I get pedicures!

I can't believe this trip has come to an end! I have had a wonderful time! I wish Brian could have been here to meet little Hudson and see the family, but his time will come soon enough. This has probably been the best trip back home. Mainly because I have a new little nephew to spoil. I also had no real plans. I was in no rush to do anything. It was great! I am sad to leave, but ready to see my two boys in Oklahoma! I have missed them!

Screen door.

We finally fixed our screen door that leads from our kitchen to our backyard. The weather has been amazing the past week, so we have been leaving the screen door in our bedroom open at night. Before we go to bed, Brian is in charge of "closing up shop". This includes shutting the door in the kitchen, lights off, charlie in, etc. In the morning I go back and undo everything he did.

I want to put my morning routine in steps.

Amanda's morning "chores" (remember it is dark outside at this time):

Step 1: Open up the doggy door, which is in the master bedroom. This is a sliding glass door.
Step 2: Walk into the kitchen, open sliding glass door, to open up mud room door.
Step 3: Charlie does 3 circles and heads outside (weird dog).

Why I don't just use the sliding glass door in our master bedroom...never thought of it till now.

At night when Brian "closes up shop", he leaves the screen door closed. EVERY. MORNING. FOR. 3. DAYS. I. RAN. INTO. IT!!!!!! I don't cuss, but I do now. The newly made screen now has my body as an imprint and is broken at the bottom.
