Back To Business

So...we're 4 days into the new year and so far it has been really good! Thank you God for new beginnings!

Steve and I rang in the New Year by going to one of our favorite restaurants that I'm sure you've heard me talk about before...Cajun Yard Dog. We actually went there last year, too, on NYE. We know all the waiters there and it's small and intimate and has amazing food and the TVs are always turned to a ball game so Steve likes that. :) We didn't do much after that. We were actually asleep for the first time I can ever remember when the ball dropped. We tried to get someone at the restaurant to take our picture, but it didn't turn out, so we just took one of ourselves to remember the night! ha!

We had to get to bed early because Ashley and John were bringing David over early Sunday morning. They went to the Capital One Bowl in Orlando to see South Carolina play and we kept David for them on Sunday and Monday while they were gone.

We had the best time keeping that sweetie pie.

He was so good the whole time. But...he is ACTIVE! He kept us on our toes every minute. He is starting to walk now and he also loves to climb and crawl so we didn't stop. I got lots of good sugar though and enjoyed every second of him being here. I was sad to see him go. But I know he missed his Mommy and Daddy. I love that boy!

Monday, since I had to work, Steve kept him all day. Mark and Laura and Lindy were here to help too. Ashley made us dress him in his Gamecocks shirt for the game! I think he had fun hanging out with the guys and watching football. :)

I wish I could have been home to watch the game and play with everybody, but it was back to work for me. Usually I am dreading going back, but not this year! It was a fun day and even oddly relaxing! haha I love my job and am so thankful for it.

It has turned super cold here all of a sudden over the past few days. Winter is definitely here. It has been down in the teens over the past few nights. Brrrr!! Now, please pass some snow! If it's going to be that cold, I would love some snow to go with it.

One of the things I have been doing a lot of this past week is learning about all my new apps on my iPhone. I have become addicted to Words With Friends and Hanging With Friends! Aaaahhh! So fun! So if you like playing those games, look me up!

And I just learned about My Fitness Pal app. Laura and Lindy told me about it and I think alot of my Twitter friends use it too. You enter all your meals and snacks for the day and it counts your calories for you. It also factors in any excercise and then it helps you set weight goals for yourself. I'm not really trying to lose weight, but it IS interesting seeing how many calories you eat in a day.

So true...right?

What apps are your favorites? I want to know about all the good ones!

Hope your 2012 is off to a good start!


  1. Hi Betsy! That grandson of yours is adorable! I know you guys enjoy him so much.

    My favorite iPhone apps are: Fandango, AroundMe, Camera+, and Pedometer Pro, Pandora, and of course all my football apps. :)

    I'll look you up on Words With Friends! I'm Lifeat7000Feet.

  2. I am so glad you and Steve had a happy new year!! :-) Sounds like a really relaxing and fun night together! I'm with you on the cold... I always say, I don't mind the cold if it snows, but if we aren't going to get snow, bring on the sunshine! lol :-)

  3. I will have to try that app.. sounds good. It will be good to just enter in the information and have the results done for me.. I just found the shopshop app which allows me to keep a shopping list rather than having to write one.. Love my phone even though it probably does way more than I know about..

  4. By the way your grandson is adorable..

  5. I love Words With Friends also!

  6. I like Red Laser. U scan the barcode of an item and it tells u where to find it and for what prices.


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! I love reading them all! :)
