I have NEVER been so stressed out in my life!!!!!


I have been studying all weekend long and I took the test today at 3:30 in Tupelo and PASSED. I was absolutely terrified. I threw up 4 times today including once in the parking lot after I passed. Did I mention that if I didn't pass that test this time that I would have to sell my agency? Yep, that's right, my contract with Allstate would have been terminated. Nothing like a little pressure, huh? ANYWAY, I can now move on with the rest of my life....I have passed my Series 63 and don't have to take it ever again.

Look at my baby birds....

They all go crazy and open their mouths and holler when Chiquita comes home.

They are too cute! But there sure is a big mess on the ground underneath the nest. I didn't take pictures of that. I'll kinda be glad when they grow up and move out.

When I got home tonight the kids were all involved in Guitar Hero. Cole, the neighbor, was over making himself right at home.Dalton and Savannah were playing, too!

Savannah is a little sunburned. Let me bring you up to speed on this child. She quit cheerleading. After much Acree home turmoil, we made the decision to quit. She is still doing gymnastics, but she isn't going to cheer. She was doing well and really liked it. Honestly, it was more Jeff and I that weren't so sure about it. We both felt like 5 days a week was a bit much practice for any sport for an 8 year old. Soooo, she decided to go back to her true passion, soccer and stay in the rec league. AND, Jeff isn't coaching this year. I think that will be best for her. It's time for her to spread her wings and fly under someone else's instruction. She's a great soccer player and a little on the aggressive side (I wonder where she gets that?). Anyway, there are some Brazilian soccer pros in town doing a soccer camp at Desoto Central this week. My baby girl went today and is going all week. She happens to be the only girl, but that didn't seem to bother her. She's used to hanging with the boys.
And here is my cute little man...
He's been doing a lot of fishing. Jeff keeps taking pictures with his phone and I can't put them on here. He caught a huge bass Friday and then a REALLY big catfish yesterday. I guess I'm gonna have to go to get any pictures. I like to fish, but I've been too busy studying. NOT anymore. Dalton is also getting ready to go to church camp the week after next with some friends.

Mom and I went on a little excursion yesterday. We took off on the golf cart and found all kinds of new places to explore. We found a great creek with huge carp and snakes. Then we took off down a gravel path and ended up in Olive Branch's Crack Alley. Yep, literally, we were in crack alley. We just kept going because we didn't know what else to do. Two women on a golf cart rolling through crack alley. Hummm, we finally realized we had two options....turn around and go back the way we came or call Jeff to come get us. They were both dangerous but we went with the first option and held our breath. We made it. We stopped to pick some wildflowers along the way and mom even peed on the golf course in the daylight. HA!

Is that a cool vase or what? The yellow really looks good in it. Last but not least, check out this hot hydrangea.....

Alright, I'm out of here. The kids are in the pool and I'm going to join them. Maybe it will help work this kink out of my neck. Have a great night and a great week.

Hug those babies and share your love.
