How much longer????????????

Well since I am working at my *NEW* job, I have no internet access on a daily (minute-ly) basis anymore. Plus we are trying to get internet at home but there have been some "issues". So as of now, I can only check my email, myspace and blog very few times a week. So keep checking back because as soon as I can get the stinkin' internet at la casa I will be updating again pretty much daily. I have SOOOOOOOO much to post..... its killing me!!!!

Happy Mother's Day...Yesterday

To all the mom's out there....
Whether you are a new mom, old mom, expecting mom, or not-just-yet a mom, I just wanted to tell all of you out there that I hope you had a FANTASTIC Mother's Day!! Being a mom is so hard, so full of emotions, a rollercoaster ride of gigantic proportions, and such a blessing. I thank God everyday for letting me be the mom to Gavin Scott Burchett. I love you "Bubba Gump".

So I had an interview Thursday at 4. I was there until 5:30! It went REALLY REALLY well!!! I think I will LOVE it there. I really hope I get the job. They have excellent benefits (15 days vacation after a year; company paid health insurance; 401k; free life insurance policy...etch) and are very family oriented. Plus they only work half a day on Friday :) I went back today for a 2nd interview and got to meet the President of the company. He was a really nice guy and we chatted for about 20 minutes....all the other interviewees (they had 60 applicants - only 3 interviewees) only talked for about 5 minutes :) Anyway, he said he probably wouldn't know anything until next Wed or Thurs because he will be out of town Mon and Tues. So please keep your fingers crossed and pray hard for me. This would be a wonderful opportunity for me and I would be very blessed to get the job. Some of you know how badly I need it!!!

Life is just a "shotglass" of cherries....

Gavin got to experience cherries again last night! The waitress brought him a little shot glass full of cherries and here are some pictures of him eating them. He LOVES them. He even drank the juice when he finished eating all the cherries :)

Danny is 30!!!

Today is Danny's 30th Birthday!!! So last night we invited some friends to dinner and all met at Uncle Roy's Catfish Parlor. There was 16 of us.... Danny, Me, Gavin, Edward (Danny's dad) and his girlfriend Teresa, Wes & Carrie and their daughters Mia & Bridget, Wes's mom Darla, Chad & Meredith and their daughter Ella, and Danny's boss Tim, his wife Wendy and their son Luke. We had such a blast!!! Danny opened presents from me & Gavin and Wes & Carrie and then we ate and sang Happy Birthday and had a cake. The cake was white with black icing and curly ribbon and a grim reaper decoration. It was pretty cute. There are lots more pictures which I will post later.

A Shake with 2 straws, please.

Tuesday night Gavin & I had dinner with Mimi at the Runaway Train. We ordered a chocolate milk shake and when the waitress brought it out, it was beautiful..... piled high with whipped cream, topped with a cherry and 2 straws. Of course, Gavin got the cherry. His first cherry. You should've seen his eyes...evidently he LOVES cherries!!!! So Gavin and I shared the shake. What was so cute was everytime he would get a drink, he would put the straw in my mouth so we were drinking together. The other picture is one he took of us with my phone. He LOVES to take pictures and we definitely get some rather interesting ones.

i LOVE him...

Thank you, God, for making him mine. Yes, sometimes he drives me batty and I want to punch him, *hard*, but he is still the LOVE of my LIFE. Between him & Gavin, I don't get how someone can make you so incredibly mad yet you love them so much it is way beyond your control. Thank you Danny for being there for me and loving me. I love you!!!!

Job Interview

I have a job interview tomorrow, Thurs May 8, at 4:00 at Landmark Life. I have heard wonderful things about working there and they have a HUGE, new, BEAUTIFUL office located on the Country Club road.
I really like the job I have now, but have been having some issues as many of you already know. So I am going to check out what else is out there and what kind of pay/benefits they can offer. If its the right job for me, I will take it.... but I hate to give up the flexibility I have here. I guess thats one thing I will check on at Landmark!
Anyway, so send your prayers this way tomorrow around 4ish. I will keep you posted on how it goes!


Well here it is. Our blog. I hope that yall like it and that you check back often to see what all is happening in the Burchett House. Please feel free to leave comments so we know that you stopped by!
Happy Looking :)
