On a roll....or bun!

SO--- last night...Start over Sunday.
Sunday, Stephen and I went to an Air Show in Peachtree City, GA.
It was the one day of the past two weeks it hasn't rained, and it was about 78 degrees, but it felt for like 90 degrees. So anyways, I was hungry as usual, so I decided to get a hot dog since I never really eat them unless the we are grilling or roasting them over an open fire.  Well, all I put on was ketchup and a little mustard, sat in the shade behind a trailer and eat it. Done. No...About an hour or so later I started having chest pains like someone had hit me or was sitting on my chest, kinda hurt to breathe.  So I told Stephen, he laughed and ignored it.  Well it went on for a few hours after that and just kinda went away.
Four Days Later.....
Thursday, Stephen and I grilled Turkey dogs and Turkey burgers. Lean and "healthy". :) Anyways.
So like an hour later I'm having chest pains again and this time it was MUCH worse.  I honestly couldn't get comfortable so matter what, i sat, i stood, i laid down. Nothing helped. So i had Stephen bring some Pepto Bismol and tums, thinking that might help. Well after half a bottle and 10 or so tums i had mild relief. So, next week, we are going to try it again and see if i get chest pains after eating a hot dog again.  I can't believe i'm going to eat so many in so little time! AHH! lol So, hopefully we can figure this out. I was in tears i was hurting so back. But i refuse to see a doctor- yes, that might be stubborn, but they aren't my favorites and I don't think i need to go. =]
Well, to make matters worse i had another sleep apnea attack last night as well at around 3a.m. or so. They scare me the most.  There's nothing worse than waking up out of a sound sleep trying to sit up and gasp for air at the same time.  I've only had about 10 or so in the past 2 years, since they just started, but i've had two in the last 2 weeks.  I'm trying to figure out if it can be hereditary or not, it doesn't really seem to be.  They scare the day lights out of me though and make it hard to go to sleep again out of fear it might happen again.  I know my father has sleep apnea, but he has it for obvious reasons.  My on the other had, i did not inherit his structure, i would say, which is one way they say it might be inherited.  I'm at a loss.  I don't know where they are coming from, but i hope to find a way to make them stop.  Sleep apnea can have severe side affects if not treated. :(  Ok- back to doing research on my chest pains and apnea.

Today has been a day of finding recipes for the holiday's!! I found so many recipes for everything from meals, to dessert(my fav), and even drinks!! I haven't tried any yet, but I will share some of the recipes with you once I do to let you know if they are worth it or not. Tonight we are going super fancy with dinner and having grilled turkey dogs! I reallly would love to use our fire pit to roast them, but it won't stop raining in this town! We've had rain the past 2 weeks it seems... but everyday this week so far except Tuesday. So, one day when the rain decides to stop we will get to finally use our fire pit!!! :)
I don't really have much other news. It's only been like 2 days since I last blogged and we haven't done much because it's been raining. OH! I do need to post pictures on here of our pumpkins and decor! I'll get on that and get those photos up soon! Until then.

Falling slowly...

I love fall and I'm SO glad it's here and that Christmas is right around the corner!!! The upcoming holidays are my all time favorites!!
So, lately Stephen and I haven't been very busy, but you wouldn't know that from the lack of not blogging in forever! Anyways, so since the last post we have strongly discussed moving back closer to my home and leaving the not so wonderful state of Georgia and that really perks me up!
We went and picked out our pumpkins the other day and now all i need is a few moms to go with the rest of my decor outside! Tonight we are carving out pumpkins that we picked out for that and I'll post those once we've done that, and our finished fall decor outside! :) Were doing a few different techniques this year with the pumpkins, using the drill, and different tools that can be found in the garage/shed! I'm thrilled! I might need more pumpkins to design!

OH! one thing we did in September was go to Destin with Stephens whole family for his Meme and Pops 60th wedding anniversary! We had a house on the beach and a party for them with a casino theme! We even played craps and blackjack. We brought in a casino rental group that set up the tables and directed the games.

After we returned we celebrated our one year anniversary! I can't believe it's already been a year!!! GOLLY! As some may know, there are certain items you are to get each other on certain anniversary's over the years and the 1st year is PAPER. So, he gave me a dozen BEAUTIFUL roses, a list of 50 things he loves about me and a sweet letter, and i gave him a "scrap book" full of all of the things we did our first year! (I say "scrap book" BC it's not the kind your thinking... its not glitzy, it's a photo or so slapped on a already bound book with some words written on it and memorabilia from events over the year.)
And then we went to eat our favorite food..MEXICAN! lol Later that night, Stephen and I went to go get tattoos of infinity symbols. Mines is on my foot in the shape of a cross and Stephens on his wrist in a cracked rock tribal way. I love them! I'll come back and post photos of those too now that they've healed. The reason for the "infinity symbols" is in reference to what infinity means and also, when we got married, my wedding gift to Stephen was a large canvas with the infinity symbol i had drawn on it and a letter written on the back on the wood frame.

SO- that's all i can think of that we've done lately. You know i'll be back!!! :)
