When you pass the award along please include these guidelines. I am to choose eight friends to share this with. Some of you may have already received this award from another blogger and if so, please accept it from me as well. I send this award to Annie,Brenda, Granny Annie, Jamie Dawn, Pea, Sue, Susie Q, and Gary. Most of us all know the same people so it's hard to share without duplicating. But all of you are deserving of the award. Thanks for being my blogging friends. I love you all.

Isn't he just the cutest?
This is Kevin holding up a bridge in Australia.
Kevin holding a koala in Australia with a friend. ( I believe her name is Amy)
Here's Kevin on the Great Wall of China. How cool is that?!!!
Kevin on the steps to BIG BUDDHA. Not sure exactly where that is.
Kevin getting off a plane in the Philipinnes with his friend Iroy.
Kevin scuba diving in Boracay. He's holding a blue starfish.
Kevin lounging on the beach in Macau. How sexy is that?!!!
Kevin now sings with a group called METRO. They are based out of Hong Kong but all of the members are from the good old USA. These guys are phenomenal. I tried to upload a video but couldn't quite figure it out. If you get a chance please check out their website: http://www.metrovocalgroup.com/. Watch the video and listen to their demo. They are an acappella group (probably didn't spell that right ,but oh well).
I miss my friend Kevin. We keep in touch as much as possible. We had many, many good times at Disney with all of our friends. Dancing the night away at Pleasure Island, then going to breakfast at Denny's or IHOP. I feel grateful to have a friend like Kevin. (Besides, how else am I going to see the world, lol)

This is Jane in all her glory.
My schedule that I hope to keep with goes as follows: Walking at the trail on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Boxing on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Weight Watchers on Mondays. Hopefully now that you all know my schedule, you will help me keep on track. Not only do I want to lose weight, I want to get my diabetes under control. I did well for awhile and now I'm off track again. Losing the weight and exercising will definitely help.
So here's hoping I can keep up at least part of this plan for awhile. And here's wishing all of you the willpower to keep up with your resolutions.

My husband has been feeling crafty lately and his new thing is wagons. He is going to try building some small wagons. We were on a mission to find some small wagon wheels. Years ago, we used to go to a place called Southern Hospitality for craft supplies. I knew the store was still there but wasn't sure if they still had craft supplies. So we drove to Plant City today to check it out. The store is really HUGE now but only a small section has limited craft supplies. We did find his wagon wheels there though. Now hopefully he will build some wagons.
The store itself has change immensely over the years. I wish I had taken some photos. 1/2 of the store is furniture and we didn't bother to look there. But the section we were in has all kinds of florals, baskets, signs....all kinds of decor. Plus I noticed they had a framing section and a kitchen section. The prices were fantastic too. And Coke and John Deere collectors, they have a great selection for you guys there. It was so much fun to look up and down all the aisle. And Hut got some ideas for some more fountains (if he ever finishes the one he started).
After that we ate at Fred's, which is one of our favorite places to eat. They have 3 locations close to us, Lakeland, Bartow and Plant City. We have eaten in Lakeland & Bartow quite a few times. Plant City is the home of the original, which opened in 1998. If you enjoy good ole southern cooking then you need to eat at Fred's. It's buffet style and everything is served in old cooking pots and pans. Or they have a menu if you aren't into all that good ole southern food. If you are ever in this area, I recommend Fred's.
Getting out today hopefully got me out of my slump. I was just feeling out of sorts after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Seemed to hit me kind of hard this year, probably because of everything we did. I have been keeping up with all your blogs, though. I read you guys everyday from work. Have a great weekend.

I recieved this in an email today and thought it very worthy of sharing.
