Book Club and My apologies

Hello my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. My apologies on this book club. Not only am I posting late but I am actually going to let you all express how you feel on this book without me asking any questions. I have just had SO much going on this month you wouldn't believe. I hope to be able to share with you all next week with what has been going on but until then I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you on Monday.... me and guitar hero are heading on a much needed vacation tomorrow.

Hope to see you there!

I have some exciting news everyone. I have been teaming up with sweet Carrie over from [carrotspeak] on making a special blog just for the book club. So, starting Oct. 1st we will be doing the book club on blog called page turners even if you don't want to join the book club I highly recommend checking it out. Carrie did such a wonderful job putting it together. We already have the first book picked at for Oct... and let me tell you it's perfect for Halloween time. Also, there is a poll where you can vote ahead for books to read in the following months. So, if you don't want to read the book this month maybe the next months book will strike your fancy.

Also, check out Carrie's blog... if you like mine at all you will love hers. She is engaged to a solider who just left for Germany yesterday so, I guess you can say we have a lot in common when it comes to being left behind.

And for those of you who are waiting to chat about eat, pray, love we will be doing it tomorrow on this blog still...

I will be seeing you...

When you're away...
I wear your shirts around the house
I sleep on your side of the bed
I cuddle with the pillow
I leave the t.v. and lights on all night
I eat in the bed
I hardly ever put on makeup
and I never stop thinking about you

On a happy note though I don't have to worry about any of those things
for two weeks. Because for a whole two weeks...

I will wear my own cute shirts around the house for you
I will sleep in the middle of the bed next to you
I will cuddle with you
I will fall asleep to the t.v. and the lights on but I know you will turn them off afterwards
we will eat together at nice places
I will put on makeup to look pretty for you (even though you never think I need it)
and instead of thinking of you... I will be seeing you!!!

It's going to be a wonderful two weeks!!!

barcelona inspiration

I finally watched Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona last night
and might I just say... breathtaking!
The locations in the movie, the talk of art, and music
just all of it was so beautiful and left me wanting more.
After watching the movie I could not stop thinking about hopping on a plane
and visiting the beautiful towns that European villages have to offer.
I love how everyone over there seems so artistic
(at least in the movie they did)
I now not only want to learn to play the piano (which I keep asking guitar hero to teach me... when we actually buy a piano that is)
but I also want to learn how to paint (again), write poetry, work with clay, and most of all
learn to take stunning photographs with old vintage cameras
and even better if I could learn how to develop film in my own dark room.

I think my goal this weekend will be to take lots of photos of anything and everything!

10 things about me...

Last night I got tagged by a good friend of mine over at A moment I Treasure
(if you have not read her blog you must go there now!!...
or after you read this.
She is wonderful, and can always bring a smile to my face with her post)

She asked me to tell 10 things you may not know about me.
So, here it goes...

1. I prefer flat coke then fresh coke
2. I am not a shoe fan... I much rather be bare foot then anything
3. My dream job would be playing a Disney princess at Disney world
4. I like pizza in the morning
5. I am huge Dolly Parton fan... in fact she was one of the best concerts I ever went to.
6. I do not like any shows to do with crime, even the news. I am such a paranoid person when it comes to that stuff.
7. I have two tattoos one of my hip and one on my upper back.
8. My mom is my best friend! We talk everyday and I can seriously tell her anything.
9. I have obsession with purses, bags, and suitcases
10. The only piece of jewelry I ever wear (expect special occasion) is the birthstone my dad got me years, and years ago.... I NEVER take it off.

Graceland Polaroids...

Remeber how I drove to Memphis to meet Guitar hero at Graceland a few weeks back?
Well, here are some polaroids from the trip.
I told Guitar hero that I love Graceland so much that I only see it fitting that we make a trip there once a year... he kinda did not see the point... but I know in my heart that he will make it happen (hint, hint guitar hero)

Hello, Scarfs, hats, tights, and boots... O, how I have missed you!!!

Could this week be any better?!
My birthday and the start of autumn all in one week!!!
All this talk of autumn in the "blog world" is starting
to make me feel inspired ...
for some fall shopping.

What is your favorite thing about fall?
Is it the clothing, the colors, the smells... or is it all things fall?

Also, Thank you so much for all your sweet birthday wishes! I have never felt so much love. You all are wonderful and I am proud to call you all friends!

True Story...

For those of you who have been reading my blog
might have picked up that guitar hero is 28
and has never had a sip of alcohol in his life... that's right not even a little taste.
So, you can imagine all the peer pressure he gets from everyone.
Well, the other night while we were on our way to the Opry
a friend of his who was with us asked...

Guitar Hero's Friend: " If you ever decided to have a drink promise me I will be there to see it"

Me to Guitar's Hero's friend: "If you only knew how many people have asked that... I swear we could have party just for Guitar hero's first drink"

Me to Guitar Hero: "Hey, I was thinking... if we get married what are you going to do when it comes to toasting the bride and groom with champagne "?

Guitar Hero: "Well, I hear there is no better time to start drinking then when after your married"

Me: (silence and shock on my face)

Guitar hero: laughing

Me: evil look (thinking... I will give you something to drink about)

Guitar hero: "I am sorry honey but you asked for that"

Me: still silent and shocked then... " You just wait till I tell mom what you said"

Guitar hero: "You know I was kidding" "I love you"

Me: "I love you too" (thinking again... I will never let you forget this)

So, I just wanted you all to know
he isn't always a sweet, prince charming...
he has his guy moments but I still adore him...
even though I will never let him live down what he said!!!

If I had it my way...

Me and Guitar hero have been looking at houses on top of all this change we have going on.
Not that we don't love our house now we just want something a little bigger.
The only thing is... I'm not a fan of the houses today and the older historic homes are pricey and need lots of work.
Why can't today's style home look like something out of a Thomas Kinkade painting?
I mean seriously... wouldn't EVERYONE want to live in houses this cute?!?!

Friday, September 18, 2009

Change is good.

What a week, what a week!
So, many things going on in mine and guitar hero's life.
I really can't talk about it yet though...
maybe someday
but just not now.
It's just a lot of change... a BIG change.... a GOOD change!
We are happy
and we always have each other
which makes change easier
but we still can't help but to be nervous when going into something
It's time like these I wish I had crystal ball so I could see the future!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Friends,

Do you any of you hear a sound and it take you back to a special place or maybe it's a scent? Well, I do... the sound of a train takes me back to when I was a little girl and when I use to stay with my grandparents. They use to have a train track right in front of there house and I am not kidding when I say that their was probably 20 trains that went thru a day. So, this morning when I heard a train I just couldn't help but smile from being reminded of the days when I was little and use to stay with my grandparents... (sigh) such a wonderful sound a train makes.

By the way do you any of you happen to know any great overnight train vacations to take... that is one thing me and guitar hero are searching to do.

I can't seem to get our song out of my head...

I sing: Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
Tomorrow I'll miss you;
Remember I'll always be true.

He sings: And then while I'm away,
I'll write home ev'ry day,
And I'll send all my lovin'to you.

I love you Guitar hero and i'm eagerly awaiting for you return!

(Cannot remember where I found picture
If you know... I would be happy to know so I can give credit)

I am getting butterflies just looking at this!

I love everything about these pictures...
from the vintage feel of them, to their outfits, to the record player, and the swing!
Are these just not the most beautiful engagement pictures ever!
(for more see here and here)

P.S. Guitar hero got me a record player while visting his family this week that looks just like the one pictured above! We also, just bought a few new records the other day (including... Louis Armstrong, Elvis, and Judy Garland) I can't wait to see it and to play some music on it! I already know what the first song we are going to listen and dance to is going to be. Sadly, though I have to wait till the first week of Oct. because we are having it worked on but I am still VERY excited!

No need to design my dream home... it's already been built... seriously!

This post is so ironic. Lately, me and Guitar hero have been talking about building a dream home (but doesn't everyone). We like talking about the type of things we would want, him: a music studio in the backyard, Me: a huge kitchen with a LOTS of counter space, a real fireplace, a claw foot bathtub... yeah my list goes on. But, yesterday while we were at dinner I was telling him about my dream home I had designed when I was back in middle school and how it had an open space in the middle of the house where I would put a stone waterfall pool... and no kidding I was surfing the Internet today and found the house I had designed years ago. Can you believe it? I still have my floor plan for the house I designed... I am going to have to scan just to show you this person has seriously built my dream home.

P.S. for those of you who guessed that my blog name came from Marry Poppins you got it right... I am very impressed!

last night.

Last night guitar hero had another night playing at the Grand Ole Opry (we counted...last night made for his 16th time playing there) and while we were there he took me in his arms and started slow dancing with me. I can't tell you who was singing, or what song was playing but it was very romantic and such a wonderful story to tell our children that me and their father (the man I adore) shared a slow dance backstage at the Grand Ole Opry.

my heart beats for you...

The other day this sweet girl, Jane sent me the most beautiful quote, that my heart literally skipped at beat. Thank you so much Jane for sharing this lovely quote with us. It will go down in my book of favorites.

"The best feeling is listening to someones heartbeat and knowing the tangible fact that it beats for nobody but you."

looky, looky at what I found...

Yes, another picture of a forehead kiss... this time it's Elvis and Priscilla. I seriously can't get enough of forehead kisses? What is you favorite type of kiss? Is it forehead like me? Maybe on the cheek, neck, or on the hand like they use to do back in the day? Do you all remember the first time you were kissed? I do, I was about 6 years old and one of the neighborhood boys was playing over at my house when he told me to hide in the bathroom for a game we were playing, then all a sudden he came in turned off the light and kissed me and then ran back out. It was a sweet first kiss but nobody kisses have ever been better than guitar hero's... including his sincere forehead kisses that literally make me weak in the knees.

Graceland Bound...

Heading to Graceland... if only I was going in this pink car (sigh)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and labor day!

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, Chim Chim Cheree... it's a pirates life for me... la, la under the sea!

I am getting so excited! Tomorrow I am heading to Graceland to see my wonderful guitar hero and Elvis. But for tonight I need to get some sleep... which I don't see happening anytime soon so, what to? what to do... I got it! Watch Disney movies... those always make me happy. I love Disney movies. Don't you? What is your favorite Disney movie?

Can anyone tell me which Disney movie my blog title A "Cheery" Disposition came from?

Saturday, September 5, 2009

Love always, your princess.

Today is the day me and my wonderful guitar hero start writing to each other everyday he is away.

I started to realize that we do not have many pictures, or stories of us together to share to our children/grandchildren being that is his gone so much. So, to make up for that we have decided to write to each other everday he is on the road (do you like how I said "we" when you know I meant "I" ... but he kindly agreed to do it with me... so I can say we)

This way when we are old we can look back at them with our children/grandchildren and remember how hard it was being away from each other but how our love still grew everyday we were apart.

Do any of you lovebirds write love letters to each other?

Reminder: This month's book is eat, pray, love

Friday, September 4, 2009

Our cat has a talent. Plus this months book choice.

... Our cat Spaz has a talent of being able to make his eyes glow in the dark.
aren't I lucky... now I don't have to sleep with the lights on when guitar hero is on tour
I can just keep Spaz in the room with me all night.

Also, this month we will be reading eat, pray, love.
Thanks for all your wonderful recommendations.... keep them coming their is always next month.


I am a HUGE Elvis fan! I mean HUGE... like really HUGE! I even own most of his movies on DVD. So, you know I am excited to say that I get to go to Graceland Monday but not only that I am getting to go watch guitar hero play. Two of my favorite men (even if one is only in spirit) in one city... life is good!

I am curious what is your favorite Elvis song? Or do you have a favorite Elvis movie?
mine is... If I can dream and Girl Happy

Do you think guitar hero will let me do his hair like this again? I mean if he is going to do it what better place then Graceland... right?!

Thursday, September 3, 2009

It's that time again.

It's that time again to pick our book for the book club. It's been so fun to read these books with you guys. I have a had a few recommendations all ready but I am going to be fair and let everyone have a say in it. So, if you have a book that you want us to read let me know. I will decided tomorrow which book we will be reading for the month of September.

P.S. Life is wonderful with guitar hero home.
