Wonky and Woot-tastic Wednesday

Happy Hump Day y'all!

   - I have this new fear. While I'm driving Maizy with the top down, every time a bird flies over I silently pray that it won't poop on me or in my car. If this were twitter the hashtag would be #problemsinaconvertible.
   - I've been trying to drink more water... which means I spent a lot of time looking at a particular painting in the bathroom.
   - I don't usually wake up before.... noon... and I've decided there's a reason. Nothing happens before noon. Waking up before noon is BORING!
   - So apparently manners are no longer taught to children by their parents, or anyone else for that matter. What is with kids not using their forks/spoons or napkins, or not saying please and thank you? I know 5 and 6 year olds that aren't using forks! On the flip side, I know 2 year olds that do. There were TEENAGERS at Chili's that were eating steak with their fingers. UGH! Stop making excuses for your kids and teach them how to behave because it is seriously DISGUSTING to watch them eat.

   - My ususally sometimes sweet boyfriend brought me ice cream. He was near my house and decided to surprise me. I'm not saying that the way to my heart is through my stomach but.... that's certainly not a horrible way to go. Also, a diamond engagement ring would help. Just sayin'.
   - We got a new, bigger George Foreman. We had a really really small one before but when Mom and I saw this on sale at Target we snatched it up. And of course since I have a new toy... I have to use it!

   - The top picture (because it's obviously not the bottom picture) is grilled lemon-pepper chicken with grilled potato slices, onions, green and yellow bell pepper, along with some asparagus drizzled in Zesty Italian dressing. Not to toot my own horn but... TOOT TOOT! It was pretty fantastic. Then the bottom picture is a hamburger (duh). I seasoned the meat with Worcester sauce, pepper and salt then I grilled some potatoes, onions and bell peppers again. It was so juicy that I was mopping up the juices with my bun. YUM!
Top:Express, Shorts: Kohls, Shoes: DSW,
Jewelry: Charming Charlie
    - Sorry it's not a great picture BUT I love this outfit. It's probably one of my favorites. The "skirt" is actually a pair of lace shorts that just look like a skirt. The top is cute. It has a little flower embellishment sew onto it. And then of course the shoes. I love those shoes. They're adorable wedges I got from DSW. I'll try to get the memory card for the real camera and get a better picture for y'all!

Well, that's my Southern Soapbox! Enjoy the rest of your week!
