After all news reports of doom and gloom on the Gulf, we decided to brave the oil and head to Destin, Florida with the Adams' fam for a week of fun in the sun! When we drove up I caught a glimpse of heaven. The water was a tri-colored blue, the sand was as soft as pillows and as white a sugar, and the smell was that of a fish taco!!!! Here are some pics of the wonderful Florida beaches that have survived the fiasco in the Gulf...

Mr. Crab This dude loves snacks over the ocean! The Dub's invade the Gulf

On Tuesday, June 15th the Mr. and I celebrated 8 years of marriage. Each year we simplify the anniversary a bit more! This year, M brought me home a card and Lillies. Uggg~I just knew he would do nothing so I opted to do the same! Boo on me!!!!! I'll get him some seagull poo or sand in the pants on vacation! Anyways, we spent the evening chillin' with the besties and making final vacation arrangements over pizza and silly talk of making inappropriate vacation shirts and the Spanish word of the day!!! So, M.W. in honor of eight great ones here are 8 reasons I am glad to be married to you...
8. You can turn on some serious dance moves, whenever/wherever!
7. You like to play tunes on your marriage belly!
6. You can rock a beautiful yard to come home to everyday!
5. You are a wonderful and loyal provider for our family!
If you know me, you know that summer is NOT my favorite season. I am more of a fall/winter girl! I enjoy cool warm clothes, cold weather, a lack of Vitamin D, and No Sweating! I am a really bad sweater (CS)! No, I will never tell what that means!!! So, in honor of summer I am counting down the top 10 things I do love about summer! I hope you enjoy your summer and keeping it sweaty!
#10: Snow Cone Sundays
#9: Swimming with Besties!
#8: Going to Pirate Paaarghties! Happy 1st b-day Cohen!
#7: Summer reading at the library Keep on the lookout for more....
My summer officially kicked off Tuesday with a group of teaching buddies to see Wicked, the musical! The evening started with an almost 2 hour, white knuckled car ride to Fair Park! Holy cow, I was never so glad to be a passenger and not a driver! Thanks Denise for getting us there with only a couple of near death brake slams and some super hard core snaking in long traffic lines! We all met at Fireside Pies. Duh-wi-chious! Everything from the drink to the pie was yummy! We made it to valet with about 5 minutes before curtain call. The show was mind blowing! Many times I caught myself forcing my chin to close my mouth and lots and lots of goose bumps! The night ended with a photo op with the cute male lead (who smelled as good as he looked) and some awesome girl talk on the way home! Thanks to our wonderful principal for setting the tone to a WICKED summer!
Hi! My name is Brooke and I am addicted to other people's lives! Therefore, I am going to attempt to recreate the awesomeness I see on other blogs into my very own! This first post feels like the time you go and get some new cut bangs and you worry no one will notice or the time you bake a new recipe and not a single soul comments you on your deliciousness. It's just a lot to live up to!!!!!! So here's goes nothing or something or somewhere in between. Thanks to my wonderful, blog saavy friend Chelsea, who gave up her Wednesday morning to help create this new addiction for me! Love ya girl! Follow me into The Babblings of Brooke and I promise you won't be bored or at the very least you will feel very normal after reading!!!
This blog is created to showcase the good, bad, and really ugly truths of being a mom of a 3rd grade boy, a teacher, and a wife! This journey called "Parenthood" takes our family through many exciting adventures and pitfalls. My goal is to chronicle these events and spread a little humor along the way! Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride!!!
