My favorite shades of blue

Jenny Matlock

The middle school I attended and made many life-long friends...also the arch-rival of the school where my boys will attend!

The high school I attended for two years, before we consolidated with another small school...

And my beloved college where I've graduated not once...but twice...15 years apart!

My sorority.....

The high school where my nieces and nephews attend, where my sons will attend....

but my favorite shade of blue is

any shade my three sons wear!

I'm a bit melancholy this week, so I'm reminiscing with my blue post! Ya'll come back now, you hear?!

Wordless Wednesday: She's grown up!

She's goin' away for to stay a little while,
But she's comin' back if she goes ten thousand miles.
Oh, who will tie her shoes?
And who will glove her hands?
And who will kiss her ruby lips when she is gone?
Look away, look away, look away over Yonder...

Godspeed, my sweet niece. Can't wait to see where this adventure takes you!

Green makes me think of....

Jenny Matlock


or is that a crocodile?! I'm not too good at telling the difference!

I also think of Christmas when I think of green. Here's a cool vintage card I found online...

I love this button...

This little froggy says it well, as I'm in the midst of the first week back to school!

I'll end with this avatar, cause it SO describes me! Have a fabulous rainbow Thursday, ya'll!

Hello Yellow!

Jenny Matlock

Yellow...the color of sunshine, Mountain Dew, and a color that evokes brightness.

Here is a yellow avatar that I think describes me well...

And this blinky definitely describes me! LOL

I love the whimsy that this brings to mind! I'm looking forward to FALL and cooler temps!

I'm not as good at this as I used to be....too many jiggily parts that should stay still! LOL

This is more likely! HA!

Here's one of my favorite albums of all time! I love their yellow dresses, don't you? Here's a bit of trivia for great uncle (Neely Plumb) produced it!

So there was my interpretation of yellow for you! :)

Wordless Wednesday: Her name is Rosie

Isn't she a cutie?! She joined our family last Monday when a coworker of Chris' found her at the dumpsters near their school. We're not certain what breed she is...possibly Beagle! She's a sweet girl and we're working on house training her!

No Go BlogHer for the third year!


Well, I'm not fretting cause I'm not going to BlogHer this year....I'm getting used to being left out. I just read a tweet or two about how nice it would be to have BlogHer '11 South of the Mason/Dixon line, and I totally agree!

So, HI! Welcome to my little part of the internet!

Here are my answers to the questions:

1) When did you start blogging?

I actually had to look back to see! I will have been blogging three years in October. That is hard to believe! I seem to take it in spurts. My longest 'dry spell' was while I was pregnant with my third child, Robbie. I was also working a new job and getting my Master's Degree. I ran out of words! LOL

2)Why did you start blogging?

I've always loved to write, and was amazed at the support of the blogging community!

3)What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?

Spend some much needed down time with my family! This summer has not been the greatest. It was short, for one thing, because we got out of school so late because of snow days in the winter. And since I had been off work (unpaid) for maternity leave, hubby thought it would be a great idea to work a summer camp at their Tae Kwon Do school. Let me just say he won't do that again. He now realizes that we ALL need some down time during the summer. 'Nuff said.

We're also going to his cousin's wedding and he's having done Friday. You know. So no more little surprises are added to our family! :)

4) Share a post that says a lot about you or is your favorite.

I like this one Putting a rude man in his place and No Greater Honor

Can't wait to make some new friends!

Orange! My favorite color!

Jenny Matlock

I LOOOOOOOOVE me some orange!

So how about some of my favorite orange things?

Here's a siggy someone made me for a message board a few years ago....

and it truly is only a coincidence that my favorite college football team is the University of Tennessee Volunteers!!

Here's a cool image I found related to a friend's message board called "Laundry Can Wait"!

Did I mention I love my Vols?! Here's the Pride of the Southland Band forming the Power T for the football players to run onto the field!!

Even my twitter page has an orange and white polka dotted background!

Last but not least is my college campus, Emory & Henry, where I have worked very hard on not only my Bachelor's but also my Master's Degrees, draped in fall colors. Isn't it beautiful?!

Now looking forward to checking out YOUR orange posts!
