Ok, so this picture was posed. I didn't have my camera ready when they greeted each other on their own. Aren't they cute? Jackson also tried to pet Isabell, but that was a big no go. She didn't want slobbery hands touching her. Understood.

Must resist the desire to procreate...not time yet...Blah. Maybe we'll win the lottery this week. We've promised each other that if we win we'll immediately begin having lots of babies. Here's hoping. I'm going to go coddle Sherman.

Today is my mom's birthday. I just wanted to tell her Happy Birthday. She's the best mom. I love all of the crazy things we do together.
1. Going to homeless shelters to find out their prices for booking a wedding.
2. Getting hit on at a Nashville gas station and then being given beads both my mom and myself.
5. Being asked way more times than necessary if we're twins.
I love her so much. My life would be very dull without her.
Happy 30th Birthday, Mom!!
Here's a rundown of my weekend:
Friday night was the Part 1 of the Fallin family reunion. (My mom's family for those of you who are confused thinking my last name was Franks. ) I've found out that there are quite a few people in the family who enjoy reading my blog, which is sweet. They were rehashing stories. I'm glad to know someone out there is getting a kick out of the things that go on around here, i.e. British flag thong clad mannequins. (Apparently, I have to give lots of examples in this post, i.e. all the examples.)
Saturday was Part Deux of the family reunion. You may be thinking "ew, family reunions are so drab and uncool." Not my family. We have such a blast. We laugh the whole time. My aunt Margo gave a slideshow from her travels back in the day. It made me want to visit Africa. My uncle Vance was there and he's awesome. He's one of my favorite people in the world and that's a short list. I also got to visit with Dana and Brian and of course Grand Bet Bet or Aunt Betty. It was so nice to see everyone.
Saturday night I went to see my best friends Patrick and Danika and my goddaughter, Peyton. I vowed as her godmother to buy her presents and give her candy. Zac and I arrived with gifts and loads of sugar. I enjoyed seeing her. She's getting so big!
Sunday was my mom's birthday party. I got to see a bunch of people I haven't seen in awhile. I stayed up till 1 and woke up this morning at 5 only to arrive on time for a delayed flight.
It's good to get back to my babies. I missed them.
Top 5 Most Asked Questions this weekend:
How's Nathan? (Great.)
Do you like Tulsa? (Flat, brown, and hot.)
When are you moving back to Birmingham? (Hmm?
When are you leaving? (Early.)
Is that a tattoo? (Yes. It's my husband's initials.)
I know that people are just being sweet. But my voice is hoarse from talking so much this weekend. Next time what if I make a flyer?
I have pictures to add, but someone hasn't sent them to me...cough...

Once she had recovered from the shock, we decided to go get some food cause I hadn't eaten. My mom recently got my dream car, a new Jeep Grand Cherokee. Loves it. So, I drove the whole family on an excursion searching for a Chick-fil-a that was still open. After no luck and many nervous comments from my dad about my driving (um, I didn't hit anything, thank you), we settled on Krystal. It's evil, but delicious at least until you've finished eating at which time you immediately regret your choice.
(What a wretched picture, but yum.)
We have a big weekend planned. We have family reunion festivities tonight and tomorrow. Then Sunday night is my mom's birthday party. Let's just say it's a monumental age. She doesn't look a day over 30.
Now I must go lay by the pool. Ahh, I love coming home.

There's a house under there.
The Ferris wheel at Bell's amusement park.
We have our power back now or should I say we can get online again! I think I'd rather give up cool air and a cup of tea for the Internet....
