Rubbish Tuesday - Mae West

(click on photos to enlarge)
A real Mae West fan hangs in the restroom of The Greenbrier. You might remember we were there a couple of weeks ago to see the New Orleans Saints training camp. The Greenbrier is now my most favorite place. I'll show you around the rest of the week but here's one more now:
I don't normally take pictures of restrooms but when I do it's at The Greenbrier! Isn't that one grand loo? This is the restroom where Ms. West's fan hangs. More tomorrow...for now I'm linking with Rubbish Tuesday

Monday Murals @ The Greenbrier

(click on photo to enlarge)

Not really a mural but a photo curtain? It caught my attention as we were walking through The Greenbrier. I tried to find out who the couple is. Probably should have read that plaque that is to the right. Oh well.

Willy Nilly Friday 5 Number 7 @ Smart View Picnic Area

(click on photo to enlarge)
This is where we picnicked when we were at Smart View on Sunday. (See yesterday's post). We brought along a big old turkey sub sandwich, some chips and cookies. There is a picnic shelter with picnic tables. Every time I say picnic, I want to sound it out like pic-a-nick as in Yogi "Hey Boo-Boo, I see a pic-a-nick basket" :) on to some random 5's!

1) Would you stay in THIS hotel? I love scary things but I wonder if I would be too chicken? Probably!

2) School starts for the kids on of you might know I work part time in the cafeteria, yes, I'm a "lunch lady" I've already put in 2 days this week. A few hours to get the kitchen ready, a couple hours for a safety meeting, then Monday I was volunteered to work 9th grade orientation and then it's back to school for real on Tuesday. Funny, I was a stay at home mom for so many years, up until Braden and Dalton started 1st grade, that's when I started working in the school. It's nice have a routine.

3) Ashlyn heads off to college in a little more than a week. It doesn't seem real. She's been local, going to community college here but now she'll be almost 2 hours away. I told her I won't cry. She said I will.

4) We watched Divergent this week. It was really good. I like Ashley Judd and you know something weird? A couple of weeks ago Nick and I watched Kiss The Girls on tv, with Ashley Judd. There was a guy trying to kill her. The guy who tried to kill her on Kiss The Girls plays her husband on Divergent! How strange right?!

5) Have you seen this:

Haha...Ash and I tried with Ozzy. I gave him a shower 2 days ago and this time Ash wanted to record him. He did much better the second time around. I think he actually liked it. I'll see if I can piece it together to share with you next week!

Have a great weekend!! Now it's your turn!

ABC Wednesday - D is for Drew Brees

(click on photos to enlarge)
So remember when I told you we had to return to the Saints training camp so the boys could get Drew Brees's autograph? Welp we went back on Thursday and SCORE! They got it! In the above photo is Braden getting the sought after autograph...
Then Dalton:
That's Ashlyn's yellow phone getting a picture, if you look closely, very, very closely into her phone, you can see Drew! He signed her shirt but for some reason I missed the photo. Bad mom. When Drew signed Dalton's jersey he said "There's a couple of D. Breese's around here"...meaning Drew and Dalton. We told Drew he spells his last name wrong...actually we do. Nick's grandpa is the one who added the E on the end when he was a big time boxer back in the day. Thought it looked better with the E when he was written up in the newspapers. Funny huh?!

Christian had Drew sign his phone case. Now he's stealing a selfie:
Obviously Drew is a popular guy. People yelling questions at him left and right, handing stuff over for him to sign but he answered and signed away always being polite. That's a Brees(e) for ya ;) Honestly though, they were all so gracious!

And here's what the boys' jerseys look like now with all their autographs:
These are their pride and joy!
