Marshiano's Olde Time Pizza - Miller, MO

A year and a half ago Hubby and I ate at this restaurant in Miller, MO called Marshiano's Olde Time Pizza for the first time. (read the first post here) I'm telling you this pizza is awesome and totally worth the drive. If it was in a bigger city they'd have a waiting line to get in, no joke! We asked my parents if they'd like to come meet us for dinner.

We got there before them so we ordered so that when they showed up the food would be ready. We couldn't have timed that any better either. We got 2 orderes of Fried Green Beans, one regular and one spicy (not all that spicy though!). Chicken Alfredo pizza and a Meat Lovers Pizza. Hello YUM!

Hubby even got caught paying before my parents got there so it was all paid for :)

Throwback Thursday: 9/11

Do you remember where you were 13 years ago? Holy cow, is it really 13 years ago? It is crazy how time moves on after tragic events that happen. People heal, people move on, but we never forget.

I know where I was. I still remember hearing Tom Brokaw's voice and that feeling of, you don't hear him in the mornings unless something is happening bad. I remember walking into Jess's room and sitting on her bed and looking at the tv just as the 2nd tower was being hit live. Then the emotions that everyone went through. We may be located in the middle of the US, a few plane rides away, but that doesn't mean we weren't affected too.

In high school I was in band, I got out before my senior year of high school because I was lazy. The band teacher tried to talk me into staying in and he'd help me get a full ride scholarship to a university. Had I gone to SMS in band like he tried to talk me in to, the SMS band actually marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in November of 2001. I always wanted to go and see the Twin towers but I never got the chance... but I missed out on a second chance of going in November of 2001. I have mixed emotions on that as well...

As a graduation present from college my mom and I went and spent a week in NYC in 2005. One of the destinations I had on our agenda was to go where the twin towers stood. So here are the pictures I took of that area... obviously not all of them because if any of you know me I have a ton! I just got started into digital (plus I had a film camera then) so it made it easy to take an extreme amount of photos...

As I write this post I"m watching CMT's Throw Back Thursday. It's crazy to hear all the songs that came out due to 9-11-01. It is also a very surreal feeling that both of my kids will only know 9/11 because of history books. 1-2-03 and 6-26-14.

Between these building you shouldn't be able to see skylight because the towers should have been blocking it.

Even in June 2005 there were buildings that weren't fixed after the towers fell.

Why I'm not a Fashion Blogger... (Part 1)

There are a ton of reasons I'm NOT a fashion blogger. One being I'm not very fashionable... So you typically see me looking like this...

or this if you catch me with my hair down.

But if you catch me with my hair up, there probably is a reason. I've said many times before that my hair is kinky curly from my ears forward, wavy from my ears back but the underneath side is straight... you may not believe me without a picture, so for once, here's picture proof... And this is after I've brushed it out. (Sorry the mirror is so dirty, woops) Brushing it out I can get the curls to straighten out quite a bit.

Then I tell people I have enough hair for 3 people plus myself. I'm not sure people totally believe me...

My bangs have their own issues sadly.

I love my flattening iron. It's funny that people with straight hair want curly, people with curly want straight. I just want something easily maintained!

Whew, I'm halfway done, finally!

Now it's time to start working on the other side of my head.

And finally I'm done.

And now you know why I don't wash my hair every day... I hope baby girl gets thicker hair like mine but I hope she either gets straight or curly and it's easy to maintain!

Mommy, the Dogs are Getting Fat

Prior to baby girl being born, I had a tendency to walk the driveway. If I had the dogs on a leash we'd leave the driveway, otherwise we'd stay in the driveway.

After baby girl was born there were a couple times she'd cry and cry and I couldn't figure out what was wrong so I'd take her outside and we'd walk the driveway. She absolutely LOVES walks.

The other night she told me that she thought the dogs were starting to look a little chunky.

I think that was her way of saying we needed to go on a walk.

She absolutely loves the sights....

but her favorite is when Dale's cows are up. Sadly they haven't been in a few weeks. She really likes the cows.

But she was happy that we went on our walk. Like I said, she loves her nightly walks.

Plus we gotta keep the pooches slim and trim! :)
