Running Late

     This morning when the alarm went off at 5:30 am , my mind autmatically said:
1.) I showered last night
2.) I washed my hair last night
3.) I can sleep till 5:45, 15 more minutes will be wonderful!
4.) What am I going to wear?
Then I automatically went back into a deep sleep & started dreaming! I was dreaming Brandon was about 2 years old & he was eating cream corn & had it all over his face & under his neck!! I was trying to clean under his neck so he wouldn't be all stinky later! :) About that time, the alarm goes off AGAIN and Chuckie says, "Amee, it's time to get up." Once again I start calculating how much longer I can sleep! Does anyone else do this? Long story short, I slept until 6:10 am! This is the longest I've ever slept on a work morning! Opps. This is what happens when we keep putting of getting up! 

I did pretty good by leaving the house by 7:06.  But now this mean I will pay for it by sitting in traffic and not arriving work 15 or 20 minutes early. Okay, I mean 30 minutes early! Yes, I'm one of those people. I like to arrive work early, get my coffee, sit and write in my calendar the events that went on the day before!! It's just how I roll.

This is how the traffic looked:

It all worked out. I wasn't last for work and I did get my coffee. But no I didn't get to write in my calendar book. ;) It's all good though.

Happy 19th Birthday Brandon!!!

     (This post is just only 1 week behind!! )  
      My little baby boy is all grown up! This time 19 years ago, we welcomed Brandon C. Eastman into our lives at 11:54am on June 29, 1992. Colby was now a big brother and Brandon would forever be the little brother. Colby & Brandon are 2 1/2 years apart which I think was just perfect.

     Brandon's B-day fell on a Wednesday this year, so after church a group of us met at Subway to hang out. This week it was Mr. Doug, Ken, Kris, Kaci, Matt, Kelly, Scott, Sherry, Emily, Jessica, Chuckie, Brandon & I. I brought a cake which I had picked up from Publix on my way home from work. I even remembered to pick up candles! Surprise on that one! ;)

Kris made Brandon the cutest card! She is so creative! In more ways than I can dream to be. They picked Brandon out one of the shirts he's been wanting that's suppose to help keep you cooler while you are out in the heat. He loved it! It was very thoughtful of them to think of Brandon. They sure have helped Brandon so much in the past couple of years!

Saturday, July 2, 2011, we had Brandon's Bday get together with Pa & Nannie, Aunt Karen, Jay & Kason, Colby & Sarah. We all gathered at Jay & Karen's house. Jay grilled his famous hamburgers, which Colby now claims the famous ingredient is "A-1 sauce"!! Nannie made her famous potato salad which was so yummy. I think Jay could have at the whole bowl by himself! Nannie also made the cupcakes & some delicious peanut better chocolate yummy stuff (can't recall the actual name..I know it's Jello-no bake!). I so enjoyed Karen's sweet tea!! You can't beat an ice cold glass of iced tea!

We all enjoyed such a great time!!!! Brandon received Tim Tebow's book from Aunt Karen & Jay!! He had been wanting this since it had came out. This will definitely be a keepsake gift! :)

Brandon still has one more celebration and that is with Papa & Granny Eastman! This is one Birthday that just keeps on going & going! :)

We love you Brandon & each day you bring us joy, smiles & laughter not to mention all the times you aggravate me, pick on me, & really just make me made! But if you didn't you just wouldn't be you, would you? lol
Here's a few photos from the day @ Karen & Jay's:
