Welcome to Babyland!

This is my friend Karson and me doing our tribute to Michael Jackson. The restaurant where we went was playing all Michael Jackson songs, and we couldn't help but dance. Everyone was staring which made me get even crazier. Sometimes I danced to them. I'm sure they enjoyed it.

Lauren and me.

This past weekend I went to Tulsa to visit one of my best friends from college, Erin. She and her husband Cam had a baby girl, Emerson Reese, 1 month ago, and since Cam was gone to a wedding, I thought it would be the perfect weekend to go help out and meet my new sudo niece. It was so wonderful to see Erin and to catch up with her! And Emerson, words cannot express! Cam and Erin are the first of our friends to have a baby, so it was very surreal. I couldn't put Emerson down. I can't wait until I see them next!

Father's Day and a commercial

I traveled down to Nash-vegas for Father's Day and had a grand ol' time. Mom and I went and saw the movie "The Proposal" which was hilarious. Very cute...I laughed a lot which isn't hard for me. For those who know me you know my laugh is quite loud, so I'm sure the surrounding people in the theater got an earful. Then we got to TJ Maxx where my awesome Mom loses my keys. She thinks she left them in the buggy. Why she doesn't put things in her purse, I don't know. I went and asked everyone with a buggy, "Did you find any keys in there?" Oh Mother...sometimes I worry. We finally found them at the front counter. Someone was gracious enough to turn them in.

I was a good weekend. Mom and I made cookies for Dad, but we ate most of the dough. Little Jamison Road is changing. I'll have to take pics next time I'm home for those of you who knew what it used to look like. Everyone's getting married and popping out kids. Craziness.

Also in this post, I would like to add that I will be in a commercial for Novasys. My face is like a flash of lightning. Don't blink or you'll miss me type of thing. My sister is all in there and she's also on their billboard. The person pouring the coffee and putting eggs on the plate is me. Be amazed because it's amazing! Not just anyone can work a spatula or coffee pot like that. It must've been that diner experience I had working at the Cactus Grill in Mineral Springs, AR many years ago.

We shot the commercial at one of my favorite diners in Searcy called Bobby's. Bobby Quattlebaum is 62 and said he's about to retire. It will be a sad day in Searcy when that happens. He said he's not going to give his recipes away for someone new to take over. He said, "When I go, everything goes with me." It was an honor and a privilege to cook in the same kitchen as him. Be jealous!! Here are some pics from the shoot.
The waitresses with Bobby. a goofy shot.
