It's Complicated

I love, love, love girl movie day. (Of course our "body guard" is a male.) He He!
Lanell, Billy, and I went to see, It's Complicated.
Absolutely funny!!! You might have to be divorced or have been divorced to appreciate it fully. I'm not sure, I forgot to ask Lanell and Billy who are the perfect couple and never divorced. I heard them laughing though so, it must have been funny.
And, I have a confession. I already fessed up to my movie buds. I saw the movie twice. Yep, on Christmas Day I saw it the first time and then I went with them today. Both viewings were...HILARIOUS.
The only bad news?
Lanell says I am no longer allowed to pick our seats. sniff, cough, hack, wheeze, snort, blow. Sorry Lanell...I hope it was nothing airborne or contagious. LOL!
Love ya!!!

Merry Christmas! (i love letters)

Merry Christmas!
I want to share with you one of my favorite things I received this year for Christmas.
It was a letter emailed to my sisters and myself written by my Daddy.
Do you think people have lost the knack for writing a letter? I suppose with the invention of the computer, pen and paper are too much trouble. But, my Daddy can write a good letter!!! Whether it be pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, my Daddy can write!!!
He doesn't read my blog, but my mother does. So, mother, please tell Daddy how much I loved his Dear Santa letter. Can't wait for more.

I hope he doesn't mind. I have posted the letter below.

Dear Santa,

I have been a good boy all year long. Well, maybe a couple of times I have fallen short. For example, just this week I've commented to myself how well I have avoided spilling coffee on the carpet. Due to my early morning rising and a very good spot remover, I have been able to keep my tiny tiny, and I mean little spills to myself. Somehow, I think she knows but she is too good to fuss at me.

Santa, all I wish for is the ability to be even more thankful for such a wonderful wife, four lovely daughters and a passel of grandchildren and great... (Oh well, I can be thankful in anticipation, can't I?)

I sincerely hope all is well with you all and that you and your family enjoy all of the Lord's blessings during this holiday season and every day of the year.

Motto for today: In all of life's journeys, go as far as you can and then you can see further.

More to come....
Love from

Mark Ingram

Alabama's Mark Ingram won the Heisman this weekend. Wow! Alabama has had such a great season and this is like the icing on the cake. Congrats Mark! Alabama fans are proud of you!

Something Else "Good" About WiNtEr.....

Still working on things that I like about Winter. So, here is one more thing I thought of. Old movies, a blanket, and an afternoon on the couch. If it's cold outstide, it feels "legal" to be curled up on the couch with a blanket and watch old classic movies. It's guilt free because it's too cold to be outside.

Seasonal Depression

Sometimes I wonder if I have that Seasonal Depression they talk about. I can't stand cold, rainy, overcast, snowy, dark, dreary days. So, I was thinking on my way to work today and thought I needed to come up with some ideas of what I like about Winter.
Today, I have to say, I like boots. Yep, I love wearing skirts and dresses with tights and boots. It's a nice change from sandles and bare legs of the summer.

Blind Side

My very good friend LaNell, her husband Ross (aka: Billy), and I went to see the Blind Side over the weekend. Some might say, "three is a crowd" but not true. "Billy" is a man of few words but he is a good egg! Lanell is a very lucky lady to have him. And in case Billy reads this, he is a very lucky man to have her!
Thanks Lanell and Billy for letting me tag along to the movies!!!

Ok, so on to the movie review. Absolutely a GREAT movie!!! It made me think about how you can be changing someone else's life and in return they are changing yours.
I loved it!

New Moon

Girl Movie Date...Lanell, Mollie, and I went to see New Moon, the second movie in the Twilight Saga. It was AMAZING! I think we all agreed it was better than the first movie. They used a different director on the second movie and it was a great decision.
Now, let me ask all of those who have either seen both movies or read the books. Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?

The Love Tree

I have had a complaint that I do not blog as well or as often as my niece Mindy or my sister Joni (cough.... Lanell). So, Lanell this is for you. Today's blog entry is about my parents Christmas Tree. Mother told me they decided to not decorate in their traditional style this year. She always wanted white lights and crystal hearts. So that is exactly what they did. They call it their "Love Tree". I love it!!!
