So the blog site keeps moving all of the pictures to the top, so okay, we can start there.
Some of my favorite pics from 2016.
The online trend is how bad 2016 sucked. It wasn't the greatest year ever, but nothing was as bad as 2012.
Work has been good. A lot of employees have come and gone, but we are lucky to have a good team on board.
It was a poopy sports year, none of my teams, aside from Alabama did anything of note.
The only movie that I can think of that tickled my fancy was The Age of Adeline and The Magnificant Seven, however, I have a slew of new movies on my shelf that I have not watched yet. I know Jason Bourne will knock my socks off.
We went on a few mini-trips this year.
We started with Marshall, TX for a weekend.
We stayed in Lafayette and watched it rain.
Seven Things in June <<<
We all went to Tyler, TX and sweated it out.
Summer Trip to Texas <<<<
We vacationed in Biloxi and went to see the USS Alabama in Mobile
1 Vacation, 3 States <<<<
We ended the year with a weekend stay in Shreveport
Bells Will Be Ringing
I didn't really explore with new recipes. I fail.
Something Like Taco Soup
And this isn't at all a food blog, but it does involve food.
I know it's corny, but I still laugh when I think of the FIT that Scott was pitching!
My Baloney Has a Second Name
I have to go to the doctor regularly now and take a shh-ton of medicine.
Rebecca painted the living room, spare room, and bathroom.
Hey, Let's Never Paint Again... <<<
The bedroom is next.
Who is going to tell her?
It Flooded in March, and we got stuck at the hotel....
Lawd Jesus It Flooded Again in March
My favorite author knows that I exist...
Where I am Forrest Gump
And I had to assure people that I was NOT pregnant...
I Don't Have What you Think I Have
I am sure that I am leaving a ton out, but the cops just showed up at the neighbors house, and I have to go be nosy.
Happy New Year! Thank you for reading my little blog!
You know how when you have a camera and people tell you to SMILE! Everyone has a specific thing that they do. Some put their hand on their hip, some cheese, some people I know even frown. I am looking at you, Scott.
My thing is, I put my hands together in front of my belly. I don't even realize that I do it.
Recently two people assumed I was pregnant.
Negative. Scott and I are both sterile as Q-tips.
I don't mind those questions at all. I have never been offended, and while I don't want to explain to everyone my inadequate reproductive system, I usually just shrug it off and make a joke.
So now I need suggestions on WHAT to do with my hands.
Hand on the hip was the most suggested pose.
I don't know how long I have been doing this, but I found pics from over a decade ago and there the finger touching thing is.
I don't know why either.
I thought 2006 was bad, then I saw this! LOL
Some days I behold the idea of having a family. Then I freak out. Some people were meant to be parents. I don' think I am one of them. Anxiety is bad, mmkay?
Adoption gets thrown around a lot, but again, I don't think it's for me. Does that make me a bad person? Maybe.
Some days I don't even want a dog. Scott never wanted to be a father, so we will just be the best aunt and uncle that we can be.
I am very happy, I have a wonderful niece, 2 sisters, and a slew of cousins if I ever get the urge to be parental.
But you can keep asking me, I don't mind. :)
Otherwise known as, where I spend all of my money!
Totally worth it.
The month began with our annual Natchitoches Christmas Festival!
We have been booked since Summer.
It got rained out.
People were pissed.
Lisa Scarbrough Alexander at Hampton Inn Natchitoches.
December 2 at 5:56pm · Natchitoches · I work very hard to push Natchitoches tourism and all of the super cool things that our town has to offer that some may not know about. You know what I loathe? Christmas Festival Weekend. Ask anyone that works in the hotel industry, and they will gasp and whimper. But you know what? Our hotel is awesome and our Front Desk team and Housekeeping team are awesome and have made this year, so far, a breeze. I am proud to be a part of this establishment and this town!
On the way home I got a phone call.
Bailey done broke down.
We made it fun until the tow truck arrived.
Speaking of Bailey, guess who turned 19!!
We had our Christmas Party!!!
I am sure everyone has read about the ladybug/Asian beetle epidemic going around. Once in one of our rooms I saw around 50 and freaked out. At my house there were 13 and I freaked out.
I was not prepared for the North stairwell at work....
Check out this video I made...
It was even more absurd when I opened the exit door, they just rained down.
The ECOLAB guy that came out and sprayed said this is the worst he has seen in 20 years, and that they are "winterizing".
Get on with that.
I need to add this to my Celeb-meeting blog.
Tim Rushlow, the original lead singer of Little Texas favorited, retweeted, and responded to my tweet! I commented on how much I loved his new single.
We had a weekend getaway, which means Scott and I just fought in a different city.
So I may or may not have ordered a shirt from The Pioneer Woman's Mercantile Store.
I may or may not have squealed when I saw the return label, packinging, and a handwritten note.
What it looks like when I get Scott to "watch a movie with me":
He's so dramatic, it wasn't even cold:
Lily's Christmas pictures!
I realize they are pretty much the same, but I couldn't pick just one.
Not only is Burger King closed, they are....
I found this pic when digging through old Photobucket files.
Why I am not allowed to use a forklift.
Speaking of work, we had a very busy and good month.
This picture inspired this blog: I Don't Have What You Think I Have
Somebody got a trampoline.......
After 24 glorious hours, Ralphie went off.
However, ABC was like "I got you fam":
So Christmas ended, and it's still in the high 70°'s .
This is to poop on.
Every night Scott methodically checks all the doors, locks, deabolts, etc.
.......and he leaves the window wide open.
This is how you know its's the day after Christmas in Louisiana
Guess who had a birthday!!
That is pretty much my month!
Scott and I rang in the New Year like is was 1899!!!
Happy New Year to all of my 7 readers!!!!!!
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
