Look alike? Maybe!

Don't you love it when someone tells you that you look like someone famous?  I know I do, although I really don't see the resemblance.  I have had many people tell me that I look like Reese Witherspoon.  Just this week I was at the Dr's office for a check up and a sweet lady told me I looked just like Reese.  It's very flattering because Reese is so pretty, but I don't see that I look like her.  What do you think?

My Celebrity Crush...

Ok, so I was just listening to some new music by Jason Aldean and I have to say that he is my absolute celebrity crush ;)!  He is so incredibly good looking (but not as good looking as my own hunky husband ;) although he does come in a close second... just don't tell Justin) and extremely talented.  His new song with Kelly Clarkson "Don't You Want to Stay" just melts me.  I hope my husband will take me to see him in concert some day soon... I'll try not to storm the stage!  For those of you who have no idea who I'm talking about... and shame on you if you don't ;)... here are a few pics.

Isn't he delicious!  

You can check out his website here Jason Aldean and listen to his duet with Kelly Clarkson via the jukebox.  I am so going to buy his new CD My Kind of Party today!  

Happy Thursday y'all!

n all the excitement with the deer I forgot to mention this very IMPORTANT tidbit!  This sweet girl (yes, I know Halloween is over, but it's the only picture I had with me) is going to be a BIG sister!  Yes, Billy, Amy and Zoe are adding to the family.  Baby Clark is due to be here August 2 and we couldn't be any more happier!  Congratulations you guys!

Zoe the precious Big Sister to be!

And the moment we have all been waiting for...

Here are the pictures I know you have all been waiting for!  This lovely buck will be gracing our walls in a couple of months.  I AM ONE PROUD WIFE!  ;)

Big Buck Down!

I am too excited not to blog about this right now.  First of all I am not your typical wife.  I absolutely love having deer mounts on my wall.  It's just something rugged about it that I really enjoy.  Having said all that... my husband killed THE big one this morning. When I say big one I mean an 11 point that he has been watching for three years... well not really watching but it has been on his game camera for that long.  We were so afraid that he would either be killed by someone else or hit by a car.  I am BEYOND excited for him.  Justin took off this week just to hunt in hopes of getting the BIG one!  He even braved the frigid temperatures this morning, so when he called me and said "Big Buck Down" I just wanted to bust out in to tears.  I know he has really put in a lot of hours waiting for this moment and I am so proud of him!  Look for pics to come!!

My Not So Good, Rotten Wal Mart Photo Experience!!!

Ok, so I know I got 50 free Christmas Cards with Shutterfly, but I really needed at least 100 cards to send and the ones I picked out were a little more than what I was expecting to spend.  To save a little $ I decided I'd just go to Wal-Mart and print some off since they were only $.75 for 5X7 cards. 

I decided I'd go on over to the Holly Springs Wal Mart during my lunch.  This was mistake Numero Uno!  The machine I chose to use was awful.  You had to touch the screen with much force to get it to work.  I even had a man to tell me that to be a little petite thing I sure was shaking the machine! lol!!  I was punching it pretty hard, but it was working my nerves having to touch it so many times to recognize my touch.  So, anyway I FINALLY got my picture order sent and took my ticket.  It said wait 30 min. for the pics to print. I walked around and did a bunch of nothing and in 30 min. I went to retrieve my pictures only to find out the stupid machine didn't print out all of my ticket and the part I needed to scan to get my pictures was missing. UGH!!!!  I finally found someone working in that department to come help me.  He got my pictures out and they looked fabulous (or so I thought, I'll get to that part in a minute).  I was ready to check out when the little guy informed me that they didn't have envelopes to match.  OMG!!!!  I told the guy had I known that I would have printed the 4x8's instead.  He told me he could give me a discount and I could take the pictures as is or I could come back later and talk to the manager.  SO come back I did!  I was fuming at this point.  I mean really, this is so ridiculous! I was so mad.  Why didn't they just put up a little sign saying "NO 5x7 Envelopes".

I decided I'd call the Wal Mart in New Albany and inquire about 5x7 envelopes, and sure enough they had some.  They told me to just bring my pictures in and they'd give me envelopes.  I calmed down after this.  I went back to get my pictures and the little guy had the nerve to tell me that they called around and they don't furnish Wal Mart stores with 5x7 envelopes.  I didn't tell him that I had already called around and knew for a fact that he was lying.  He did give me a discount so I ended up only having to pay around $15 for 50 5x7 pictures instead of $37.50.  

So, my mom went to Wal Mart in NA after her weight watchers meeting (she lost another 3 1/2 pounds by the way) and she told me they had several boxes of 5x7 envelopes that they had been ordering for months getting ready for the Christmas season.  

I was so excited to get my pictures stuffed, so I brought them to work with me.  I was looking over my card only to notice they have a TYPO!!!  The stupid machine was so hard to handle that it didn't pick up the "a" in Holiday.  I am so embarrassed, but after all the trouble I went through to get these, I'm handing them out anyway.  So everyone can just have a Happy Holidy!  lol! I guess next time I'll read over my cards carefully before submitting my order and I DEFINITELY will NOT be using the Wal Mart in Holly Springs ever again for my picture needs.  I should have know better because I had a similar incident last year when using them.

Anyway, just wanted to rant and rave a little more about my not so good, rotten Wal Mart Photo Experience!

Merry Christmas!

I ordered my Christmas cards from Shutterfly today and can't wait to get them to see how they turned out!  I finally chose this card...

We had family pictures taken this weekend at Portrait Innovations and they turned out soooo good!  Here are a few that we picked out.

Justin, Tucker and I

I can't believe he was this still...

I absolutely love the smile on his face!

Isn't he just so handsome ;)!!

We even got MOST of our shopping done this weekend!  I only have a few more gifts to get and I'll be all done.  I don't think I've ever been done this early.  I'll probably still be getting a few things for Tucker here and there until Christmas Day, but that's ok. 

Hope all is going great for your Monday!  Praying that the rest of your work week is blessed!

Just a bunch of nothin...

We had a wonderful holiday break full of family time, shopping, good food and fellowship.  Here is a recap of what went on in our house starting with November 19.

On Friday night we put up our Christmas Tree.  Tucker was so excited.  He would look up at the tree and then at me and he'd come give me a big hug.  This went on for a good five minutes or so.  It was too precious.

On Saturday my mom, sister-in-law Bonnie and I went to the Helen Brett Show.  If you have never been, I highly recommend you try and find a way to get in.  The Helen Brett show has everything from food to fine jewelry.  They come to the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, TN every three months.  The November show is the best because of all the Christmas gifting... unfortunately it's also the busiest!  We had to wait in line just to get down the first isle.. yikes!  We had a great time though.  After the show we went and had a little lunch and more shopping at Sam's Club.

Monday Tucker and I had a little Mommy and Me time.  I just love that little bugger!

On Tuesday night we had mid-week Church service instead of on Wednesday because so many either travel or are cooking in preparation of family entertaining.  For church that night we had a night of singing and had several visitors from the Ashland Church of Christ.  Much fun was had.

On Wednesday Mom Tucker and I went to Tupelo to do a little shopping and then to Wal Mart to buy a few last minute things for the holiday.

On Thursday Justin, Tucker and I traveled with his family to Clarksville,TN to have Thanksgiving Lunch with Justin's Uncle Verlon, Aunt Jean and their daughters families.  It was a rather long ride (5 1/2 hours there... we forgot to make a turn and 4 1/2 back in a down pour of rain) but we made it back just in time to spend a little time with my parents and my brothers and their families.  We don't get to get together much but I LOVE it when we do.  

Friday AND Saturday Mom and I were able to do a little shopping.  On Friday we traded Mary Beth Tucker for Emma.  What a day we had.  On Saturday poor Tucker had to go with us.  I just know he's going to hate shopping when he's big enough to know that's what we are doing.  

Sunday was spent going to Church and trying to relax before we had to head back to work. 

I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.  I absolutely LOVE my family and don't know what I'd do without them.

I'll leave you with a picture of Tucker and his Daddy watching "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" that was on TV last night.  I think Tucker really liked it!
