I'm doing my own Flash Me Friday today as our host is still having some computer issues :) These are a couple of pictures of the condo I lived in before getting married and moving into our new house. I lived in this place from 2005 to May 2010 and absolutely loved the area. It was right in the middle of all of the action!!

A while ago we started a little contest on this blog in which I post a picture and whoever comes up with the most clever/funny/witty/etc caption gets put into a drawing for prizes at the end of the year. Still don't have everything figured out as of yet, but we do know a couple of things 1) There will be multiple prizes 2) I love the participation so far 3) If you think your submission is inappropriate for others to see, you can always email your answer directly to me at email@example.com :) 4) I've literally LOLed all weeks so keep it coming!
This week's picture (I realize that this is of one of my friends and I hope he doesn't mind, but this picture cracks me up):
Alright, what do ya got!?!?

I need you guys to know that this isn't a one-way street. I get many messages saying that I inspire and encourage, but I get so much of that it return that I would be crazy to stop doing what I'm doing. As you saw by yesterday's blog, I enjoy answering questions from the community. If you were to have a question at any time, please don't hesitate to email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to what the future holds and I'm truly thankful for each and everyone of you.

Ronnie and I have decided that we will each plan a date once a month. We made this agreement for several reasons. 1. We're both home bodies that are completely content sitting on the couch all weekend if you let us, and that's just not healthy 2. We thought it would be a nice way to spice things up every now and then by doing something fun (and different) together. 3. It's a good way to show your spouse how much you love them, by planning something special. 4. It's a nice tradition to start. The only rule is that you have to plan it and there are no limits. It can be a date at the house, a night out on the town, anything. A few weeks back, Ronnie posted pictures and a video from his date night; an Ernie Halter show. So I thought it was only fair to tell you/show you my date night.
Saturday morning I asked Ronnie to go on a date with me. He, of course, agreed - one thing I've learned in just the 3 months we've been married, the beauty of marriage is zero fear of rejection when you ask the other person out. The vision for the date: stay at home and relax, while doing something fun and romantic. I had planned a night of Skip Bo (our FAVORITE game to play together), wine, cheese and crackers. It ended up being the PERFECT date, in both of our eyes. I got to sit and chat with my hubby as he kicked my butt in several games of Skip Bo, while he got to attend the date without wearing pants (Ronnie defines pants as "confining" and an "optional item" when in the comfort of his own home). WIN - WIN for all parties involved!
Here are a few pictures from the night...have no fear, I have cleverly taken the photos to be appropriate for your viewing :)

Here's something I started a couple of weeks ago on RSBR, cause as we all know, the weekends are slow around here. I call it "What's in a Google?". It's simple really; type one word into Google and see what the magic bot suggests for you. Once in a while, you can get some pretty funny suggestions. What's crazy, is I'm pretty sure that it means these are the most common searches.
Word: why doesn't
Top suggested searches:
why doesn't he like me
why doesn't he call
why doesn't mac have viruses
why doesn't he love me
why doesn't corn digest
why doesn't anyone like me
why doesn't alcohol freeze
why doesn't God heal amputees
why doesn't facebook look like this
why doesn't redbox have avatar
I've highlighted my favorites. What's funny, is I think I've asked just about every question there except for the love/like ones. I mean seriously, why doesn't corn digest? Why doesn't alcohol freeze? Why are there so many amputees out there who nobody likes?
