Hannah Concert

Friday night was the big Hannah Montana concert. We had a really good time. I have never seen or heard so many squealing girls in one place. Saylor actually screamed a litte and sang and clapped along. She is really bashful when she thinks someone is watching her. She had such a good time and it was an awesome show. Hannah/Miley was all over the stage and was dancing everywhere. She wasn't still the whole show. I loved it and I am so glad Saylor and I got to share that neat experience. The pics from the show aren't too good but it's the best I could get from our seats. Oh yeah, the Jonas Brothers were really good too!

Saylor's Big Day and Mom's Big Disaster

As I posted earlier, Saturday Saylor turned 7. She spent the night with my mom Friday night because Saturday morning Mandy and I left for Cookeville at 7 am to go to Sam's to pick up food and then off to a bakery in Cookeville that was making a Hannah Montan electric guitar cake for her birthday. I was so excited about this cake because we had a lot of guitar stuff going on in our decorations. They were on each table with a microphone and hanging from the ceiling. We left Sam's and got to the bakery about 8:45. It was closed. I didn't panic. I figure he's out for a minute. I mean he is open 7 days a week. Mandy goes to the barber shop next door and is inside several minutes and I figure they are calling the guy. Mandy finally comes back to the car and informs me he hasn't been in since Tuesday and no one can get in touch with him. Apparently he has gone out of business! WHAT?? He can't go out of business he owes me a freakin' guitar cake for my perfect day I have been planning for weeks! The man also said people had been stopping all week to pick up orders and were like us...shocked! Okay so now what? I don't want a WalMart cake. If I had I would have ordered one to begin with and it has to be Hannah. We start driving home and I am on the verge of tears. Mandy said for me to try Publix in M'boro. So I call one store and they don't do Hannah cakes but she said to try the other one. So I call them and yes they do and yes they can have me one ready in two hours to pick up. Thank goodness for small miracles. We get back to McVegas pick up my balloon order at Walmart and head to Harvest Farms to drop off all the food and balloons and then head to M'boro. We get the cake with no problem and I am happy with it. It wasn't what I had planned but at least it was Hannah! We get back to Harvest Farms at 12:15 and the big jumping castle is being delivered at 12:30. It was the hit of the party. Even Mandy, my aunt and cousins and myself took a dive down the slide. It was hilarious!!! Saylor loved her cake and had no idea all the drama of the day had gone on. I never told her about the first cake so I could surprise her. That was a good idea on my part. She never knew the difference. Anyway, alls well that ends well and her party was a blast and all of the kids had a great time.

P.S. I emailed the jerk and told him what I thought and he said he had to close for personal reasons. Whatever dude!! How about a note on the door or a phone call.

My Six

I have been tagged by my sweet friend LeAnne Grissom to list six habits or things about me and then tag someone new. I had to think about this just a minute! : )

* The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
* Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
* At the end of the post, the player then tags people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

My Six:

1. I have to watch Friends everyday!!! Really I do.
2. I started fainting in kindergarten and still do it to this day. I have passed out so much I can tell you when I am going to. I am a total weirdo. LOL
3. I talk to my sister Mandy and my Mom probably 10 times a day and we see each other daily. Most days I have lunch with Mandy. LOL!!
4. My house is never clean and I can't help it so I just decided to give up. Sorry!
5. We eat sausage at every meal!! LOL just kidding....we rarely eat it even though it's a family business. (Goolsby's Sausage, WalMart, frozen foods, go get it!)
6. Mandy and I sound just a like and our own family can't tell us apart on the phone. Including my kids. It is so funny!

Now I am tagging Julie Hyder and Brandie Mansfield.

Sharpay meets Hannah Montana

For Halloween Saylor was Sharpay from High School Musical and our neighbor Ginny was Hannah Montana. They made cute trick or treaters.

Final product

Back in May we had pictures made by Stephanie Edens. I bought two 20 x 30 portraits for my living room of my babies and I finally got them framed and they are ready to hang. I think they look awesome, but of course I'm partial. Steph did a great job!
