How did you get into 3?:
When he was in the band, The Ranch, they had a few songs that got heavy airplay at a station that is no longer around back in Seattle and I thought he was good, then he came out on his own as a solo artist and I was sold! Great concert by the way... :)

What is your favorite song by 4?:
Dearly Beloved or The Secret of Life

Way too many! Driving around with Heid in Seattle ... being at his concerts ... doing the crazy hip swinging dance from the How Forever Feels video ... and then finding out I'm not the only one that does that crazy little dance ... Heidi does too!

Is there a song by 8 that makes you sad?:
Ummm some of them are tearjerkers, hello it's Reba. She is good at getting emotion out of you.

How did you become a fan of 10?:
I heard 'Safe in the Arms of Love' and was hooked. She has one heck of a voice!!! Great concert too btw :)

Random thoughts of a non-morning person

This morning my alarm went off and it was playing a song and I was in that state of half asleep, half awake where the song became part of a crazy dream I was having so I couldn't tell if it was my alarm or something else. I was laying there trying to decide and realizing I don't really like the song and thought I'll roll over to look at my alarm and smack down the snooze button ... then determined I couldn't roll over for some reason. I just laid there on my stomach thinking about it for what felt like a long time but was probably a few seconds then all of a sudden I remembered where I put my Zyrtec that I take for allergies!
Last night I was chatting with some friends and was like "If you were my Zyrtec where would you be?" because I couldn't find it, I didn't get much help but did get Jean to realize that she is supposed to refrigerate one of the vitamin type things she gave me for stomach issues :)

So I got up and sure enough it was in one of my spring purses in the bottom of my closet in the tote that I store some of my purses in. I think this was the first morning I was actually up and moving around without having hit my snooze button too..yet I still made it into work with 1 minute to spare :)

I guess the moral of this story is to go to bed earlier ... but we all know that won't happen =)

mmmmmm... Margarita's

You Are a Strawberry Margarita

You're so sweet it's a little overwhelming, and people are a little afraid of corrupting you...
It's a little difficult to imagine you with a margarita. And you're truly a different person after you've kicked back a couple!

This past Saturday Dawnn and I went on a road trip to Fort Wayne Indiana to go to Sonic. I have been craving Sonic since I moved back from Alabama and for my birthday I told her this was what I wanted to do. We made the plans and I got directions from a great lady on Scrapshare as to where one was in Fort Wayne and we set off Saturday with Dawnn's daughter Skye who is almost 2 in tow for a girls road trip.

I had a great idea to write down stuff as we were on the road about the adventure to use later in our albums and grabbed a pack of Creative Memories storybox paper out of my trunk and snapped a few photos of the odometer and ourselves and away we went. The storybox papers turned out to be a great idea!

Here are some excerpts:

12:17pm "We are on our way" As we stop 3ft from Dawnn's mom's house after dropping Jacob off to get the storybox and cameras out. "I have to have it out and ready" Diane says.

12:22pm "We're really going now" Drinks from Burger King (without straws) and a happy meal for Skye... we should be good for at least an hour.

1:14pm I-94 west of Battle Creek. Still on the road, no stops yet. Di and I were chatting and out of nowhere "Sonic" comes in a singsong voice from the backseat. Sky was just chattering away and all of a sudden "Sonic" came out .. awww.

1:48pm Back on the road after a rest area stop. Ice cream $2 so we decided on cookies instead for a snack. Met a nice southern truck driver, took a group photo and we are outta here.

3:00pm 20 miles from Fort Wayne...there was dead stuff all over the road, and then we saw this huge dead thing. Di thought it was a coyote, Dawnn though it was too fuzzy so Di called Paul and asked if coyote's are fuzzy. (come to find out it was a coyote... craziness.)

3:15pm We find Sonic!

3:25pm After much deliberation we order the 1st round of cherry limeade's with our food and plan to order more drinks before we go as Di brought a cooler to hold it all. Oh, our food just came! More later!

3:30pm Our food is getting cold while we take photos of us and our food. Di says oh I think my southern accent is coming back! She's startin to say 'ya'll' again :)

3:50pm How can it all be gone Dawnn says staring into her empty cherry limeade cup. Meanwhile Di is changing the roll of film in her camera to get more photos.

4:10pm $18 in drinks later we are getting ready to pack up and head out to find Chick-Fil-A to take care of my chicken fix at the same time :)

4:23pm Goodbye Sonic! In search of I-69 and Chick-Fil-A we have our 10 drinks piled into the coolers. Di has the map and we are on a mission to find Chick-Fil-A. Our parting words from Skye "Bye Bye Sonic Miss You."

4:45pm Hello Chick-Fil-A! We find the mall with the Chick-Fil-A and Di is in heaven ordering several packs of nuggets and asking for tons of buttermilk ranch dressing. We also get a couple packs for our friend Rachel who couldn't go with us.

5:03pm Tragedy strikes! Di went to get Dawnn's diet coke with coconut and cherry out of the arsenal of beverages and noticed her cherry coke with lime had a hole in the bottom of the cup and has leaked into the cooler, thne whole thing! Dawnn says just stick a straw in the cooler and start sipping!

6:56pm What about Bob? I-94 in Battle Creek. Holy cow we swear we just saw Bob from the Bachelor! Di wasn't driving fast enough to take a 2nd look, I should have pressed down on the gas ... I could have hooked her up!

6:58pm Why can't we find anything good on the radio?!?!

8:17pm and 356.5 miles later we are back! Had a great time and can't wait to get our pictures back, we think we have between us over 100 photos!

I will post photos when I get them back!
