Anyone know what this is?

Do any of you know what kind of flower these are? I saw them outside a lady's house when we went to a pumpkin patch and I'd like to know what they are. It's the same flower in two different colors.

I'm wondering because it's my ulitmate goal to find the "perfect" flower for a tattoo I want to get. This may not be my "perfect" one but I'd like to know anyway. Thanks!!

A Very Merry Zilla Christmas!

Here are some pictures of our Very Merry Zilla Christmas!
Our Tree & DZ and Zilla doing stockings!

Zilla playing with his SpongeBob Ukulele & Zilla with his Areo GeoTrak train

Zilla also got a Leapster II (with games), dominoes, some Disney Cars stuff, some clothes and his Mater ornament - he loves ALL of his stuff this year well maybe not the clothes but you get what I mean! It was a great Christmas!

DZ asked for and got his RockBand for the Wii and a digital camera.

I got a nice lovely Zune from Zilla & DZ and then my best friend got me the above and some new glasses. I know it may look like it odd gift but well I'm kinda an odd girl. I ask for stuff I actually need as opposed to stuff I want each year and Billie is almost the only one who listens. Last year she got me a new broom - and I loved it! This year we actually swapped it and she asked (and got) stuff she needed so she opened up on Christmas day: some makeup, rubbermaid food storage containers and an iron. Yep so I guess we're both odd but thats what makes us the best of friends!

It's a Bedroom NOT a Bathroom!

I am thinking I may need to get Zilla checked out - either his eyes or his head. That kid decided yesterday that while in MY BEDROOM he had to go pee but didn't want to go into my bathroom located a mere few feet from him or walking to his bathroom or potty chair. No instead of using those time tested fail proof options he couldn't be bothered with them and he just had to go then and there. Now I know your probably thinking he peed on my floor but nope that's just not Zilla's way so I look over and see my darling son open up my night stand bottom drawer pull up his shirt and pee INSIDE! Yep you heard me he went pee in my nightstand - luckily for the both of us it was empty or else I would have had to hurt him but still. I couldn't even yell because I was rendered speechless and that's a pretty hard thing to do for me. I swear this kid drives me nuts.

Cooking Time with Zilla

Zilla has started to become more interested in his "food" items. Today he is cooking 'dinner' (at 1:29pm) for me. The menu includes a nice pot of: green grapes, purple grapes, an egg, a waffle, a pretzel, chicken and fries. He brought his pot out using his two kid sized oven mitts and his potato masher! He put them on the plate and gave them to me saying "here mama eat your dinner" - too bad that line doesn't work on him! I think I like Chef Zilla!

PODS have been abducted

I think the people that do the PODS storage things have been abducted or something because there is no way in hades that their price quotes are done by sane people from Earth. I looked them up tonight and it would have cost me almost $1,000 to have one for one month! Um can we say rip off? Thats just crazy!

On a good note I did get most of my wrapping done just a couple things left to wrap up and I'll be good to go. Need to mail some boxes tomorrow too - sorry peeps that crap may be late - oh well it's the thought right? I mean I did think about getting them wrapped and mailed sooner so that counts doesn't it? If not oh well maybe I can play them off as New Year's gifts. I'm so not into the whole holiday thing this year. I wish I could just cancel it altogher.

Eight Years

Thats how long I've been married as of today. Eight years ago today DZ and I held up several court house workers in order to get married before he left for war . You see we had planned to get hitched the following May that is until the events of September 11th and DZ was given orders to go overseas. We had an appointment to get married in the little cramped office with our family and friends present in the afternoon but DZ had to drive down from GA and because my luck just sucks like that he got caught in TONS of traffic and was WAY late. The people were all super-duper nice (you know all that patriotic feeling was still going strong at the time) so they actually kept the court house open past closing time for us and then took us up to an actual court room since we had about 20 family & friends present. It was nice and well just 'us' so we decided not to have a traditional ceremony when he got home from OEF.

It's been extremely trying at times and there have been plenty of tears and fights but those are just the life of a Military wife. I wouldn't trade them for anything.

Movie Review Time!!

Here are some reviews! I know your super excited!

New Moon - I can't believe that I haven't reviewed or even talked about NEW MOON yet so here goes! It was the second book/movie in the Twilight series (in case you've been living under a rock LOL) and I LOVED it!!! My friend and I went to see it right after it came out and besides the fact that a tween totally spilled her popcorn on my friend and made us move because we couldn't stand listening to them talking the whole time. The film was so much better put together than Twilight - just goes to show you money does get you a lot! I can't wait until Eclipse comes out next year!

Hotel For Dogs - Placed in a foster home that doesn't allow pets, 16-year-old Andi (Emma Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Jake T. Austin), turn an abandoned hotel into a home for their dog. Soon other strays arrive, and the hotel becomes a haven for every orphaned canine in town. But the kids have to do some quick thinking to keep the cops off their tails. It was pretty good I laughed quite a bit.

The Proposal - When she realizes that she's going to be deported a book editor pursaudes her assistant to marry her and trouble ensues. It was FREAKING FUNNY AS CRAP!!!! DZ and I could stop laughing. If you haven't seen it then well you should.

GI Joe: The Rise of the Cobra - The elite GI Joe team set off on a mission to stop the evil arms dealer Destro. This movie wasn't too bad I mean there were TONS of action scenes and the acting was pretty good but there were some seriously cheesey lines and I'm sorry but the lead Channing Tatum just drives me nuts and not in the good way. It was worth seeing but not buying IMO.

The Ultimate Gift - A young man recieves a series of "gifts" from his grandfather that he must complete in order to receive his inheritence. This was a really good movie and I totally would encourage everyone to see it.

Wii is making me laugh

Right this very minute I'm watching Zilla watch DZ play the new Mario Brothers game on the wii and I'm just freaking cracking up. Zilla is repeating some of the sounds (he's currently into that parrot stage - yeah it's awesome) and gasping whenever DZ dies (which is totally a lot). Zilla has also been giving my husband directions like "watch out" and "go that way" but sadly either his 3 year skills are lacking or the 30 year old's skills are cause he keeps dying! Watching Zilla's face is about to have me peeing in my pants it's so funny.

I know, I know

I wish I could come up with a good excuse as to why I've been slacking off but well yeah I can't I've just been extremely lazy. I mean there has been some serious craziness going in with me but for the most part I can't say thats any real reason. Oh well I'm going to attempt to get my head back in the game because I honestly miss writing my posts.

DZ had planned to take Zilla down to visit the in-laws for the weekend so I was going to have two whole days of kid-free-ness but my plans went down the drain because DZ woke up sick - blah. So now me and the boy are hanging out watching tv (him) and reading (me). Maybe DZ will feel better soon cause he seriously owes me! lol

Six Word Saturday

So much for my kidless weekend
