Friday's hodgepodge

First things first. I changed my blog and it's name! What do you think? Honestly! I have been considering renaming it to something a little more fun, but I really liked the background before and I certainly had not planned on making any changes yesterday. However, when I published my post yesterday I noticed my blog had completely funked out. It was white and you couldn't read anything. After a while of hitting the refresh button, I realized it was a lost cause. I called Robbie and he told me I needed to just redo it and choose a background from the blogger site. I was so upset. Frankly, because the ones they offer aren't near as cute as the ones you can find through other sites. But, I didn't see any other choice. So, instead of just whining about it, I decided to whine about it while redoing it :) I found this one and once we got all the colors fixed just right, I actually became quite fond of it. It just looks so cozy...and so I appropriately renamed my blog "Pillow Talk". I mean, who hasn't curled up with a pillow and a best friend and shared the deepest darkest of secrets, laying there before you drift off to sleep?! Some of my best girlfriend moments were during a spend the night party, laying in bed with the lights off, and talking for hours!!! Anyway, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!!

Yesterday evening Taylor and I went to Hanceville with my mom and dad, and my niece, Rylee, to see my grandparents. My grandpa just turned 90 in January and he's the cutest old man you will ever meet. He wears his pants so high, that if he was a girl, they could double for a support bra! Anyway, it had been a while since we had seen them, so I was glad we got to go. We didn't stay too long because they had to go to the funeral home. One of their friends had passed away. We kept saying, "well lets go so they can get to the funeral home." And my grandpa's response. "Oh don't hurry off, they will still be there when we get there." haha!! Funny old man! I certainly know where my dad gets his sense of humor! Anyway, whenever someone dies it always makes me think about their death. Did they know Jesus? Did they know they were about to die or was it shock for the entire family...I'm so nosey so I guess that's why I want to know about everything!!! Well, I'm certainly not ready to die. I think I have a lot of living left to do, but I'm not scared about it. I am for certain I will spend eternity with Jesus! However, when I do die, I have one request. PLEASE BURY ME IN MY PAJAMAS!! My husband thinks this is a very stupid demand, but if I'm not buried in them, I will come back from the grave and haunt you! I mean, I'm asleep. I don't typically sleep in my jeans or Sunday dress. Don't argue with a dead lady. Just do it!! I'm making this request known because if you come to my viewing and I am not in my pj's please take my husband outside and beat him. Then, change my clothes!!

Now, changing gears. My husband has recently taken a new job at Fontaine 5th Wheel in Trusville. It's different hours then we were used to and that has taken some getting used to, but I think we are all adjusting to it well. Robbie is liking his job and it was a wonderful opportunity for our family. So, tonight is our first family/work get together. I'm a little anxious because I will be mingling with all the big whigs from Robbie's company. Most of them are quite a bit older than us, and I hope we aren't viewed as "the little kids." We are going to a Birmingham Barons baseball game. I'm new to liking baseball, but I think it will be a good time. This will be Taylor's first baseball game. I hope she loves it (and behaves)! I'll update you tomorrow on how tonight goes!

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!


  1. I do like your blog name.

    It was incorrect to say that you only whined while we were changing the blog. You whined before, during, and after about it.

    I'm very pleased that you are so interested in baseball. It makes me happy.

    I will not have your viewing in p.j.'s. I may let you be buried in them, but you will be viewed in a beautiful dress. Don't be weird with the pajama thing.

    Your grandpa really is a funny guy.

  2. I agree with Robbie... viewing in a nice outfit, burial in your PJ's.. an old man at the yard sale told us some woman is buried in the city cemetary with a $40,000 necklace on.
