The Life of Bon: Did you barbecue and camp on Memorial Day?

Monday, May 26, 2014

Did you barbecue and camp on Memorial Day?

Was your Memorial Day filled with barbecues and family and corn on the cob?

I hope so.

It's okay if it wasn't though.  I spent a lot of my Memorials Days working at Sizzler and feeling left out because I wasn't barbecuing and camping like the rest of the world.  Now I barbecue and camp and I kind of miss Sizzler.  Weird how that works.

We spent a little bit of time at the cemetery this afternoon.  Greg and I met up with my mom and my siblings and we left flowers for my dad.  I still can't visit my dad's grave without crying, but every time it's a little bit easier.


^^ I kind of love this picture.  There's technically only one person in it, but really there's three people.  Sometimes I wonder if my dad and my baby girl are hanging out right now.  Just spending a little bit of time together before she comes down to live with me for awhile.  It's one of my favorite things to think about.


And now it's back to school for me tomorrow for just this week and then two days next week.  It is going to be absolutely insane this week and I'm hitting the hay early to be ready for tomorrow's madness.  Stephanie is here to entertain you... she's smart, hilarious, and giving away alot of free loot!  You're up Stephanie!

  1. Thank you for this post Bon. I, like you, didn't spend my weekend eating burnt hotdogs or getting drunk with my friends. Though I didn't have the chance to visit my loved ones in their resting places, I reflected a lot on the loved ones I have that have passed on. Even though it's hard, I think it's one of the most important things we can do. I teared up at the part about your father and daughter hanging out. Such a sweet thing to think about <3

  4. Spent a lot of time thinking about those who gave their lives for our freedom while hanging out with family! Was able to enjoy a nice dinner out on Monday with my husband, a US Navy Sailor, and some of our best friends who also serve! They make me very proud!!

  5. Just seeing those pictures makes me tear up. We didn't grill out for Memorial Day but I got to spend it with my husband who is in the military so that was a blessing & humbling knowing that there are so many wives out there who didn't get to welcome their husband home from war like I did. I'm definitely thankful for times like Memorial Day to re-focus my perspective!

  6. I'm glad you and your family were able to spend some time together this weekend. My husband had to work but we definitely took some time to remember those from his battalion who didn't make it back from Afghanistan.

    Thanks, also, for the giveaway.

  17. How To Stop A Divorce And Save Your Marriage?(Dr.Brave).

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {bravespellcaster@gmail.com},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks..

  18. So many fake testimonies here filled with much lies and deceit, I have been a victim of such and it hurts my feelings badly. My girlfriend broke up with me 4 months ago and I really wanted her back so I tried a spell caster who was a scam and made away with my money, since then I had a great feeling that all spell caster are fake until my sister told and introduced me to a spell caster that she trusted and helped her solve the predicaments in her relationship once, Doctor Sanu. She was my sister so I believed her and contacted this man though I had doubts but it took this powerful man less than 48 hours to bring back the only girl I truly love. I could not believe my very eyes, So I'm here to tell you all reading these testimonies to be very careful so you won't be a victim like myself and contact a true spell caster Doctor Sanu if you find this testimony(dr.sanuspiritualtemple@gmail.com). True and sincere spell casters are very few out there and I'm glad to have found the one I call the best.

  19. i just want to share my experience and testimony here.. i was married for 6 years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the picture.. he started hailing me and he was abusive..but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost?then he filed for divorce..my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do..he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids.. so someone told me about trying love spell that she use to get back her husband.and introduced me to a spell caster called dr Jarto? so i decided to try it reluctantly..although i didn't believe in all those things? then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2days, my husband came back and was pleading..he had realized his mistakes..i just couldn't believe it.. anyways we are back together now and we are happy..in case anyone needs this man, his email address Dr.jartospellcaster@gmail.com his spells is for a better life. again his email is Dr.jartospellcaster@gmail.com

  26. Hi I am Ashley Sonia, from London I got a love spell done on my fiance actually he left me after one year of engagement I was shocked when he told me he does not love me any more he is going to marry with another girl it was very difficult to believe because we were in love from last 5 years he was the guy who never thought to live without me for a second he used to give thousands of phone calls in a day and he was saying to me he does not love me any more, it was a worse news for my family because I gave a very good treat to my friends and raletive on my engagement and we put engagement ring to each other in front of hundreds of people now if he didn’t marry me so it was shame for me in my society so I decided that I will get him back any how, than I found dr okaka on Internet I told him my problem he told me not to worry I will fetch him back to you he said that he will come himself and will beg me.he gave me 48 hours time and of course it happened before 48 hours he come back to me and said he is sorry for what he did to me,that he is ready to marry me. we get married and we are happy now as husband and wife. really dr okaka is a Miracle Man. contact him for your own help drokakalovespellcaster@hotmail.com
