So the first 3 days of my 21 day Challenge have been Blissfully Positively awesome.

see that is my word... POSITIVE. Im gonna stay POSITIVE for 21 days so be ware thanksgiving I might just blow.
but for now.. IM positively positive. annoying isnt it?
ya thought so.
anyway. We started off the day by John fixed all our screens on the house. (some were already messed up) our kitty cats just loove to hang on them like garfield. Especially Bebee she is the baby runt and so spoiled. she wants in all the time. (Bella would bring her inside and hide her and snuggle her all the tiem so ya she wants inside all the time especially now that its colder. But, Bella and John are allergic so we cant bring them inside. They break out and wheeze and can't breathe.
With Bella being sick we REALLY don't need them inside.
We have been promising we would take her to her favorite resteraunt. (you will see in just a minute)
John needed shoes really really bad. He has ankle issues so he has to wear a certain kind of shoes so we had to go to Foley and get them. SO while we were there...

We spent the day. (Auburn didn't have a televised game since it was their home coming. YOU KNOW I LOVE ME SOME AUBURN FOOTBALL! GOOO CAM! WAR EAGLE!)

We had so much fun!
We went to the huge outlet mall. Found Bella her Christmas outfits for her programs she has, and photos with santa etc. seems like all the little clothes these days for little girls are getting a might risque' so, went to a more specialized childrens store where they look more like little girls instead of well... I don't want to sound UN POSITIVE.. so I will just let you fill in the blanks

She rode the carousel She was so excited and all she talked about soon as she saw it.

and rode the carousel

She posed for photos with some friends you might recognize... they were not very talkative though..

she pet the little dog and talked to it like it was real so funny!

I fell in love 3 times over at the coach store.. smells so good in there omg I could live there..... I have my christmas list filled out and then some... sigh.. Who wouldnt love that store?

We worked up quite the appetite. Sooooooo YOU KNOW where we had to go! Bellas FAVORITE THROWED ROLL RESTERAUNT as she calls it. But the real name is Lamberts.
YOU CAN NOTTTT have a bad time at this place. It is such a fun place to go. They have fun music for everyone to sing with. You know.. the music from our day. The grease music and sing along songs and BOY EVERYONEEEEEEEEE in the resteraunt sings toooo! was so much fun.
I caught a few photos but we were busy eating and laughing.
This one lady got a salad brought to her in a big sun hat.
This other guy ordered ribs they brought it to him in a big skillet.
its just a fun place to go. If you are ever in Gulf Shores GO TO LAMBERTS. IT IS SOOO MUCH FUN! YOU WILL LOVE IT. you may have to wait in line. BUT SOOO WORTH IT! THey play jokes on you. They have the big pots they have the vegetables in and scoop out the vegetables well one waitress will have a lid on it open it and OuT pops a stuffed squirrel or racoon at you... or they will squirt fake mustard (a string inside the bottle) at you thinking you just got covered in mustard lol so funny
The food is good. Great family atmosphere. OH

You order your meal with your sides but they have people that walk around with other side dishes like black eyed peas, and these wonderful fried potatoes with onions, fried okra and of course the thrown rolls they are the big pop over rolls. AMAZING.
they will give you molasses and or apple butter to go on it too.

The rolls are huge and meal in themselves.
we brought home enough to eat again! sooo good.

Here he had just thrown a roll to John. my battery was dyin so I didnt get a good shot.

At this point we were tired tired tired tired but full had a great time. Bella took ten seconds to go to sleep when she hit that pillow.

It was a good day.
Today... feel it but still smiling from the fun we had. love looking at the photos. It was good to get out.

SOOO Thankful my Bella Bug is feeling better! she has had us so worried. She still looks hollow eyed and dark under her eyes but she is alot better than she has been not coughing like she has been and sleeping better which helps all of us! Looking forward to a wonderful week.

Thankful that I was able to go. Thankful even though I detest these medications that they are here and available (and they are finally working) I am able usually this time of year (fall) to do a little bit before it gets too cold. Love making memories with my girl.
SO THANKFUL for my hubby and this little girl!

NOW I have to get busy on the art journal.. 3 days to catch up on huh? not so bad.. (ya thats the positive answer right Rhonna?)

So how are you doing on your challenge?
what are you thankful for today?
Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Hi Nancy,

I'm Scrap Jazz lurker of your wonderful blog. I came across it a couple of years ago when you posted one of your amazing projects, bookmarked it and I still check out and chuckle at your Bella posts. Your Lupus -> MS story touched my heart.

I just wanted to crawl out of the wood-work and let you know how much I love reading your updates, and watching Bella growing up. She looks so TALL in the carousel shots!

Keep the positivity going, and come back to SJ when you get a moment?
