Fast and Loud Motivation

Fast and Loud

Who would think a book by a car guy could help me get my motivation back? Not me, that's for sure, but that's exactly what Fast and Loud did for me.........Go figure In case y'all don't know, this is Richard Rawlings, a car guy with a dream.  And he has made his dreams come true in a big way.  His book, Fast and Loud came out a few months ago and Hubs got it as a birthday gift.  On one of the Continue Reading

UYW Mama’s Story

  Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what Continue Reading

Random Thoughts and Beaus


I have nothing earth shattering to share today.  Just Random Thoughts and talking about Beaus Tomorrow is Mama's Birthday. I am not going to tell you how old she is. She'd whip me.......Didn't I say the same thing last year?   Maybe I did. I do want to talk about Beaus today.  Sometimes as a Belle, I focus on all the Belles that have been a part of my life and don't mention the Continue Reading

Not Much

Via Pinterest

While chatting with Boss last week he asked what it would take to make Hubs and I stay here.  My first thought was to say "Not  Much".  But I didn't say that.  I just told him I had to think about it. So all weekend, I thought about it He had asked what I wanted in salary, etc.  What, if anything else would it take.  Then when I was online early Sunday morning, I saw this saying.  It stopped me Continue Reading

Mike in the swamp

Recently Hubs and I had our 22nd anniversary.  Hard to believe it's been that long.  We're kinda proud of ourselves though.  We'd only known each other 5 weeks when we got married.  Yeah, I know.  Crazy.  But it's worked this long.   Just about everyone who knew us said we'd never make it.  HA we proved them wrong.  We're like that. We actually had two weddings within a week of each other.  We Continue Reading
