I am beat!

We have tons of trees in our yard and now have 6 less dead pine trees. We worked in the yard all day long and I am beat!!! The previous owner was a tree farmer and he got a little carried away with planting so many trees! He planted three of those pine trees by the swimming pool, yep you guessed it we would have pine cones and needles in our pool all the time!! Woohooooooooo, not gonna miss them and I am not crying because they are gone! We had a fire going all day burning just the brush and limbs, haven't even started on burning the logs yet! It was one hot fire! These things make me so happy and our yard is looking so good. We have great neighbors that helped us out so much!!! I picked up pizza, beer, and pop and that was our dinner! Now it is time to relax!

Happy Belated Birthday Sweetie!!

Am I bad or what?!?!?! I forgot to wish my Sweetie a Happy Birthday on my blog. His birthday was this past Saturday. When he was younger his favorite band was KISS. I heard they are planning in Canada on July 11th, which is only about a hour away from us. I wanted to surprise him with tickets for his birthday, so I started searching for tickets and the best price I found was $125 a ticket. I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay $250. I happened to mention it to my sis, Ruthie and she said she could possibly hook me up. try and make a long story short, she ended up getting me two tickets and a hotel room for $0.00. Woohooo!!!! I think I shocked the crap out of my Sweetie!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
