Catching Up a Little

I feel like I need to put Something on here...

Well, VACATION WAS UH-MA-ZING!!!! I want to stay on vacation! I want to pack up right now and go back to where there's daily housekeeping, fresh seafood and days filled with things we Want to do instead of things we Have to do. (Yes I know how 3rd grader that sounds!)
We were on a 2 week vacation celebrating 15 years of marriage! Wow!
Here's a picture of the LoveBirds.




Next up...I'm OFFICIALLY A MOTHER OF A TEENAGER! I'm not sure how this is possible since I'm still so young. However, it's true. Joey turned 13 today. We're going to the drive-in movies later and I now have to pay adult prices for him. He now has a Facebook account. The rule on FB is that you have to be 13 so he's been excited about that. Before I was even awake today he wanted help making a FB account. I'm proud of him that he cares about the rules and waited. He's really an amazing kid. I'm so thankful that I'm starting out this Teenage Business with Joey!
How handsome is this kid????


What else...Oh, my husband got another tattoo when we were on vacation. He got a tattoo of an Indian shooting a Star.

It's a picture off of the Tootsie Pop suckers. It's something he really liked when he was a kid. (If you would like more details he would be happy to tell you about it. He likes telling the story.) However, I would like to tell you about his other tattoo and my matching one! Way back in the day after Randy and I KNEW we would be together forever...
We decided to get matching tattoos. Never mind the fact that I was only 16 and he was 18. We had only been together for 3 months, but like I said WE KNEW. (Oh, my gosh...I was only 3 years older than Joey is right now.) Please, Lord have mercy on me!

Anyway, we decided to get matching smiley face tattoos. Smiley Faces have been our logo every since. The deal was that I wasn't old enough to get a tattoo and there was No Way my Mom was going to give me permission. I know this because I asked and she said, "No Way." So, naturally what did we do? Randy went to his sister Sharon's house and made me a fake ID. No, I'm not kidding. He had gotten pretty good at making them for his friends in high school. Theirs all said they were 21. I'm sure it was so they could vote and such. Mine just said I was 18.

With my newly laminated ID I informed my Mom that I was going to go get the tattoo. She just laughed at me and we left. When I came back and I showed her she totally thought it was a joke! She told me to go wash it off. I told her that it was real and there was no washing it off. My response was, "I told you I was going. You didn't say anything!" Again, Lord, please have mercy on me!

I'm sure there's more to catch up on, but I've got to get ready for the Drive In. We're going to see Planet of the Apes and Captain America. It's only over 100 degrees so I'm sure it will be lovely. WHAT THE HECK IS WITH THE HEAT???
