Stone Mountain Date Night

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="192" caption="Perfect Sunset"][/caption] It all started with an email I received on Tuesday Apr 6th. Jess: while I was walking around monitoring my kids...i came up with the BEST idea. :) I know it’s going to be a long week for both of us, so I want us to have something to look forward to....so do me a favor? keep your plans for Friday night free. the whole night. I got a lil something up my sleeve. :) We both knew that Friday didn't really have any thing going on, and Jess could sense that I was feeling a bit of the gloom monster. So she cooked…

And just like THAT….

no more grrrrrface! Things are still the same with the previous situation...I'm just channeling some really positive energy (from somewhere?) and going to make the best of it until May. It certainly helps that SniperBen is always there to be a voice a reason for me. :) In other news...I have a change in my top 5! I've added Bob from The Biggest Loser. We've been watching this season and I just love him! He's hilariously intense and pretty damn sexy! I happen to think he looks like SniperBen as well...*delish!!! Oh! SB also introduced me to www.thesuperficial.com this week. I have to admit that I am all about these…

GrrrrtotheFace!

Grrrface. That's what I am right now. I have so many awesome, wonderful things going on in my life, but there's just one little part to remedy. And what sucks is...it's where I spend most of my time. When the place you spend 8+ hours a day is making you miserable, something's got to give! Next week is Winter Break and I fully intend to hit the streets and find something closer to home. Send me good vibes, prayers, whatever it is you do. If not for my sake then for the boys I live with. Bless 'em for putting up with my foul mood for the first hour after…

On top of Stone Mountain

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Our family adventure begins"][/caption] A few weeks ago Jess and I decided it would be nice to take Chase to Stone Mountain to see all the Christmas decorations, the laser show, the Atlanta skyline at sunset, and the building of the Snow Mountain area. Despite living in Georgia my entire life, I have never been on top of Stone Mountain. I know...it is a shock to me too! We packed up the camera, got bundled up, made a quick stop to get a snack, and we were on our way. (more…)

Jazz up yer ballz!!

Tis' the season for ballz!! Sausage balls that is. :) They are a must have and a staple of almost every holiday 'get together'. Someone says 'finger food' and sausage balls'll be there! Now don't misunderstand me, sausage balls are the bomb! SniperBen and I started a conversation about a month ago playing around with different versions of the balls. "Bacon balls...Oh..I know! Jalapeno balls! ...wait...what about.." and it basically went on from there. The amazing ideas never really came to fruition, however, we talked about it again while walking down stone mountain yesterday with chase (blog on that to come btw!).

Thanksgiving break-2009: Sniper Style Part 3 (The next day…)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Not just 1 or 2, but 3 dancing machines!"][/caption] Our week of thanksgiving bliss was trucking right along. I had good food and traditions with the Turner's and lots of rest and cooking in Dwood with the boys, so the only thing left was turkey time with the Birney's (Sniperjess' family). For those of you that know us...the Birney house is always an interesting experience. It's untraditional, and slightly unorthodox...but it's always a good time with genuine intentions from all. My growing time in Dwood lately lead to what I would call a "catch up" session when we got there. The adult beverages were poured and…

Thanksgiving break – 2009: Sniper Style pt. 2 (Thanksgiving Day)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="192" caption="Roosevelt, meet Turner"][/caption] In true Turner style the morning got started with a big plate of food and a lot of scrambling around. After breakfast Jess and I started in on the turkey, gravy base, and more chopping of vegetables. You'd think that after like three days of preparing food, we'd have all this mess done. That wasn't really the case. There always seemed to be more carrots, onions, celery, taters... oh wait. No potatoes to cut up those had already been taken care of and were in the fridge setting up. Oh, the taters! Let me describe the ways I love thee. Ok, I'm done.…

Thanksgiving break – 2009: Sniper Style pt. 1

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="159" caption="Maybe YOU should relax"][/caption] It all started with a trip to Burger King for some New Moon paraphernalia. I got Jess' place and we got ready and headed off for some sushi, time with friends, and a gaggle of tweens and/or begrudgingly happy boyfriends and husbands. The movie was ish at best. It was better than Twilight, but then again, Twilight was a pretty terrible movie. There were some decent fight scenes, a fast car or two, some sparkly "vampires", enough emo looks to make a rainbow cry, and and then some credits. That pretty much sums up the movie, or at least what I recall…

Loving October!

We've had an awesome October. We flew through Halloween 1-6 with ease (except 3) and stayed super busy. This past weekend was, as usual, amazing. We didn't do anything particularly blog-worthy, but that's what made it epic. We got things done around the apartment, hung some pictures up, organized dvds, unloaded boxes, cooked great food, napped, smiled. :) I What IS blog-worthy though, is I also met some more of SniperBen's friends. They are all really great people who I hope to hang out with again soon. Kim and James are two of them and they hosted a really fun pumpkin carving party. Here are a few pics from that...stay…

On top of Stone Mountain

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Our family adventure begins"][/caption] A few weeks ago Jess and I decided it would be nice to take Chase to Stone Mountain to see all the Christmas decorations, the laser show, the Atlanta skyline at sunset, and the building of the Snow Mountain area. Despite living in Georgia my entire life, I have never been on top of Stone Mountain. I know...it is a shock to me too! We packed up the camera, got bundled up, made a quick stop to get a snack, and we were on our way. (more…)

Jazz up yer ballz!!

Tis' the season for ballz!! Sausage balls that is. :) They are a must have and a staple of almost every holiday 'get together'. Someone says 'finger food' and sausage balls'll be there! Now don't misunderstand me, sausage balls are the bomb! SniperBen and I started a conversation about a month ago playing around with different versions of the balls. "Bacon balls...Oh..I know! Jalapeno balls! ...wait...what about.." and it basically went on from there. The amazing ideas never really came to fruition, however, we talked about it again while walking down stone mountain yesterday with chase (blog on that to come btw!).

Thanksgiving break-2009: Sniper Style Part 3 (The next day…)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Not just 1 or 2, but 3 dancing machines!"][/caption] Our week of thanksgiving bliss was trucking right along. I had good food and traditions with the Turner's and lots of rest and cooking in Dwood with the boys, so the only thing left was turkey time with the Birney's (Sniperjess' family). For those of you that know us...the Birney house is always an interesting experience. It's untraditional, and slightly unorthodox...but it's always a good time with genuine intentions from all. My growing time in Dwood lately lead to what I would call a "catch up" session when we got there. The adult beverages were poured and…

Thanksgiving break – 2009: Sniper Style pt. 2 (Thanksgiving Day)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="192" caption="Roosevelt, meet Turner"][/caption] In true Turner style the morning got started with a big plate of food and a lot of scrambling around. After breakfast Jess and I started in on the turkey, gravy base, and more chopping of vegetables. You'd think that after like three days of preparing food, we'd have all this mess done. That wasn't really the case. There always seemed to be more carrots, onions, celery, taters... oh wait. No potatoes to cut up those had already been taken care of and were in the fridge setting up. Oh, the taters! Let me describe the ways I love thee. Ok, I'm done.…

Thanksgiving break – 2009: Sniper Style pt. 1

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="159" caption="Maybe YOU should relax"][/caption] It all started with a trip to Burger King for some New Moon paraphernalia. I got Jess' place and we got ready and headed off for some sushi, time with friends, and a gaggle of tweens and/or begrudgingly happy boyfriends and husbands. The movie was ish at best. It was better than Twilight, but then again, Twilight was a pretty terrible movie. There were some decent fight scenes, a fast car or two, some sparkly "vampires", enough emo looks to make a rainbow cry, and and then some credits. That pretty much sums up the movie, or at least what I recall…

Loving October!

We've had an awesome October. We flew through Halloween 1-6 with ease (except 3) and stayed super busy. This past weekend was, as usual, amazing. We didn't do anything particularly blog-worthy, but that's what made it epic. We got things done around the apartment, hung some pictures up, organized dvds, unloaded boxes, cooked great food, napped, smiled. :) I What IS blog-worthy though, is I also met some more of SniperBen's friends. They are all really great people who I hope to hang out with again soon. Kim and James are two of them and they hosted a really fun pumpkin carving party. Here are a few pics from that...stay…

Stone Mountain Date Night

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="192" caption="Perfect Sunset"][/caption] It all started with an email I received on Tuesday Apr 6th. Jess: while I was walking around monitoring my kids...i came up with the BEST idea. :) I know it’s going to be a long week for both of us, so I want us to have something to look forward to....so do me a favor? keep your plans for Friday night free. the whole night. I got a lil something up my sleeve. :) We both knew that Friday didn't really have any thing going on, and Jess could sense that I was feeling a bit of the gloom monster. So she cooked…

And just like THAT….

no more grrrrrface! Things are still the same with the previous situation...I'm just channeling some really positive energy (from somewhere?) and going to make the best of it until May. It certainly helps that SniperBen is always there to be a voice a reason for me. :) In other news...I have a change in my top 5! I've added Bob from The Biggest Loser. We've been watching this season and I just love him! He's hilariously intense and pretty damn sexy! I happen to think he looks like SniperBen as well...*delish!!! Oh!

GrrrrtotheFace!

Grrrface. That's what I am right now. I have so many awesome, wonderful things going on in my life, but there's just one little part to remedy. And what sucks is...it's where I spend most of my time. When the place you spend 8+ hours a day is making you miserable, something's got to give! Next week is Winter Break and I fully intend to hit the streets and find something closer to home. Send me good vibes, prayers, whatever it is you do. If not for my sake then for the boys I live with. Bless 'em for putting up with my foul mood for the first hour after…
