anyhoo, we spent a few hours at S1's. BIL1 cooked up some good turkey. as always, S1's stuffing is spectacular! S2 brought some side vittles, including frozen corn with about a tub of butter it was cooked in. Booger was his normal "cheery" self. see below.
Booger, BIL1, BIL2 & S2
friday - we had game nite. there were only five of us, but it was fun. we played I LOVE THE 80'S. it's full of trivia, some that you have to sing or act out or draw. it was entertaining to say the least.
ET & S1, S2
p.s. i am SO not partnering with S1 again until she watches some more VH1! get on it.
saturday - we went to Gabe's wedding. i got to see some of the team. it was a grand ol' mexican wedding. full of mariachi's and the sort. they had so much fun dancing! i miss mescan dancing. i used to dance alot with my dad (hi daddy!) at weddings and what not. he would spin me a lot. i liked it. i felt like a little mescan ballerina. KIDDING!
check out the bottom of Gabe's shoes. you probably can't see... they say "HELP ME".

sunday - i went to pick up Booger and his friend to come clean our yard. they were getting paid good money to whack down some dead banana tree leaves and rake the yard. they'll be back when they get out for christmas break.
i also loaded my jukebox! YAY ME! mostly 80's some 70's and CHRISTMAS music. i even had christmas labels printed. cuz i'm cool like that. i ordered a couple of more christmas records last nite; Billy Squier, "christmas is the time to say i love you" and John Lennon, "happy xmas". S1 ordered Band-Aid, "do they know it's christmas time". there are so many more i want, but i'm holding back right now. sadie's almost out of icu and i gotta pay for the transplant.

last week i picked Princess up from the babysitter. since Sadie is sick, i was in BigRed. since i didn't have my own set of keys with me, i didn't have a key so S1's house. we were stuck in the truck until she got there. this is how we kept entertained.

friday - we didn't do a whole lot...that i can remember. i know we wanted to get an early start on saturday, so i'm pretty sure we went to bed early. we've both had really exhausting weeks lately.
saturday morning - up at the butt-crack 'o dawn! i went to help HM out at the store. i was the box fetcher. they were having a jim shore trunk sale - christmas type stuff and i had to get the box for the piece they bought. i was also the "wassail passer-outer". "would you like some wassail? care for some wassail? wassail anyone?". that was me, that's what i did. all day. well, at least for the morning.
after i fetched lunch for everyone, i kinda hung out in the office and waited for BA to get there. we got a surprise visit from mamalane. hi mamalane! she brought snickerdoodles... snickerdoodles i haven't' seen since they entered the house, come to think of it. she and i went to get a rental while sadie's in the car hospital. she's getting a transplant. in icu now. please pray for a speedy recovery.
BA finally got there and we went straight to the movies. we went to see BORAT. yes, it's pretty much in the same category with the JACKASS movies, but i just saw that one last month with Booger. i think, to appreciate Borat, you would have maybe needed to watch Da Ali G Show. i did. it just gives you some background on Borat. needless to say, we laughed. we laughed a lot! we both thot it was funny and, of course, we were quoting it for the rest of the weekend. therefore, getting on HM's last nerve.
saturday nite - the three of us (me, HM, & BA) headed back home for dinner. not to go into all the detail, but we ended up eating "someplace new". it was an asian seafood place with a buffet that hadn't been touched since 11am and it smelled like fish. and, no... we didn't take our queue from the NO CARS in the parking lot.
we still had a good time. we were the only ones in the whole place, other than the owner's family (that probably lived downstairs). we sat on the balcony, enjoyed the view, and listened to the music (that we could hear from across the street at 'Deaux).
after we got home, we tried to watch BEERFEST. my first attempt, their second and third. BA and i fell asleep. HM woke us up to see the 2-second part of them playing mexican aka liars dice. yeah, that was worth it. =)
sunday - it's a beautiful day! the boys started on the shed. Woz and ET came over and hung out with us. the shed now has all the walls and half a roof. good job! they did a great job actually.

anyways, even though I took the picture from the official Toyota site, S1 feels the website didn’t do Al justice. you know me, never one to disappoint…much. i wanted to make her happy with new pics.
this one is actually similar to the one she sent me yesterday
i thot it really didn’t do it justice, cuz she has bigger tires, so i found this one
still, there was something missing. i thot, maybe if Xzibit came in and did his magic and "pimped" their ride, it could possibly look a little closer to this
we could even get S1 and princess special t-shirts made
for S1 and princess
tho, i’m sure Booger wouldn't mind having something more like this
for now, he’s stuck with “Al”. everybody wave HI to the family!

first off, let me start by saying you get a bonus video this week. yes, TWO videos! i'll post one tomorrow and the other one on thursday. these were videos that were supposed to make it to the reception, but did not. my creative juices were just drained. sorry. but i completed them both last nite. yay me!
so... here's the update:
friday - started off easily enough by just going grocery shopping. with a detour to Bed, Bath & Beyond and Chili's and Home Depot. we needed a few things for the kitchen and for building the shed. ended with us watching really bad tv that nite.
saturday - HM went to work and i stayed home. S1 and princess came over to show me the new "short bus" they're driving around in now. they got a new yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser. it looks like something that should be named Big Gay Al's Banana Boat Ride, don't 'cha think? we cruised to the grocery store and i even got to drive it! GASP! everything was fine until she freaked out that i parked near the other "lowly" cars. apparently, new car = walk a mile to the front door.
saturday evening - BA finally made it out, after giving my poor HM a scare. poor thing didn't think his wittle fwiend was gonna make it. =) they played around outside, mostly. HM put briskets on. man make fire. *insert grunt here*
sunday - woke up, not to the smell of eggs and bacon, but just plain woke up... the horror! i know. not even one of BA's famous bloody mary's. geesh! what's a girl gotta do to get some alcohol in her system before noon??? j/k (hi mamalane!)
after i made us some egg sandwiches, i jumped on Lappy and the boys continued their quest to build the shed.
we had some good eats, what with all the brisket and sausage and chicken that was on the grill all day. mmm...mmm... good! we have lunches for the week. unfortunately, i was a little pre-occupied with worrying about my honey being on his motorcycle this morning, that i forgot mine.
it was a good weekend. it's always good to see BA and it was an extra bonus being able to make fun of Big Gay Al's Banana Boat Ride. the princess and i decided that their new car be named, Al. that or risk the thot of being dropped off by the "short bus" at school.
thanks for watching. until next time, i'm sweet t and you're not.

he called last week to welcome me to the family. although, he was at the wedding, we didn't get to talk much. he said he had already considered me his sister and part of the family for quite some time now. it was very touching. he has his moments.

don't mind the super 70's stripe showing on the clip (reminiscent of the pants S1 wore when she was allowed to dress herself for school one day). it will still play if you click on it.

Thank you for EVERYTHING!!
