Pet Peeves

**warning- if you are easily offended, then don't read this post**

Everyone has a few pet peeves...some of mine might be considered OCD as opposed to pet peeves but that is a whole different post.
This one thing has bugged me for a while, but I can't hold it in any longer. This "thing" was popular in Charlotte but apparently people in Knoxville love it even more.

What am I talking about...FAMILY DECALS!!!!!

This is not just a staple for the family van, it has now become popular on any and every vehicle. They have names/pictures for every family member, grandparents, nannies, and any pet you could EVER imagine! I am really happy that people have a large family and want the world to know all their names and their pet names...and the sports they play. BUT I'm not sure your back windshield should display your family portrait.

What if the Duggar's decided to put their family decal on the back of their car?? It would probably take a few cars to fit everyone.

As my dad would probably shouldn't do it b/c it might hurt your windshield or be a safety hazard.

If you have a family decal, I still love you...but it might go missing the next time I visit :)

In honor of Valentines Day, here are just a few things that make my heart so happy!

1. My HUBBY- I love this man for putting up with me ALL.THE.TIME and loving me so well!!

2. Texting and emailing daily with my sweet sisters. This might not be the "norm" for some, but I couldn't imagine not talking to them so often.

3. Winestore: Robby & Kelly introduced me to this fun wine store in Charlotte. Knoxville doesn't believe in wine store's so my hubby let's me stock up every time I go to Charlotte. If you have never been, go right now. The wine is amazing, the prices are even better AND they have a wine tasting machine. You can thank me later

4. Chattanooga Cupcakes: Everyone knows my obsession with cupcakes and I never pass up a chance to try a new place. Hands down, best cupcakes I have ever tasted. They will begin shipping in mid 2011 so watch out!!
