Headache 1- Nichole-0

  Hey Everyone Well yesterday I woke up with a wonky tummy and some nausea but it wasn't too horrible so I was like whatever. I know that my mom and I had made plans for a quick run to Aldi- god if there are Aldi gods out there I would LOVE to do a sponsored post for them sometime lol. I love that it is so reasonably priced and I can get a cart full of groceries including like meat and stuff for like under 100 bucks most of the time! I think my total yesterday was like 80 and that included a pack of hamburger patties, bag of chicken breast, bag of chicken tenderloins. I also like that everything is always in the same place and I can be in and out in under an hour. So my mom was really busy with packing to go to my grandmas- they were going to go put a roof on the house up there (they are also having a roof put on the house here but - yeah let me cover one at a time right? ) So I was def. figuring we would run in aldi grab things and be back home. I was up and ready by 830 ...

Preparing Yourself Mentally for a pet

To many people, pets are seen as wonderful creatures that can brighten up your day, give you motivation and play with you to help with stress. However, they’re also living beings that need a lot of love, care and affection. Far too many people treat pets as objects to be owned and disposed of as they see fit, and it’s a terrible mentality for how common it is.   That’s why mental preparation is required before you decide to raise a pet. You need to be responsible, you have to be willing to cancel your plans to look after your pet, and there are times when you’ll have to rush to the vet with your pet in your arms. It takes a lot of work, dedication and even money, so here are a couple of questions to ask yourself should you decide to own a pet. Image Source   Do you have an animal in mind yet?   Animals aren’t born the same. You have dogs, cats, snakes and even turtle pets. They all require different levels of care, all have different diets and they ...

short and sweet like me

Hey Everyone! Well.. Greetings from the VERY rainy south! I think it has pretty well rained since late saturday night -thankfully today is just cloudy/dreary - but it makes me so zzzzz!  The weekend was pretty fast and furious and was mostly spent watching tv, eating take out from anywhere that we could get to deliver (which isn't that many places where we are unfortunately!) but it was a good relaxing time so that was nice :)  I know that this coming weekend David has tickets for the drag race and his brother and him have went to it like EVERY year that I can remember but his brother might not get to go so I think he's gonna get his dad to go. He wants me to go but Drag racing just isn't my thing AT ALL. I will watch Nascar all day long but blah on drag racing! I was thinking I would go over to my moms on saturday but they are supposed to be going to my grandmas so I guess I will get an extra day to myself this week! wahoo right? ha ha. I know my mom is supposed to come trade out ...

Gifts On a budget: ideas for all occasions

It is better to give than to receive, right? But that is never a good idea if it is going to cost you a lot of money to do so. With family and friends having birthdays or special events all through the year, the cost of it all can rise quite quickly. So it is best to save money where you can. Here are a few simple ways to give a gift, but without breaking the bank.   Make a Food Gift   If you are looking to give a gift that won’t cost the earth, then making them a gift can be the way to go. Not all of us are that handy with a glue gun, which is why baking or cooking, can be a straightforward way to go. I you’ve got flour, eggs, and water in the house, then chances are you can get a cake or some muffins thrown together, right? If you’ve got a friend that is sick or just had a baby, then cooking a meal for them and taking it over will be one of the best things that you can do for them. The added bonus with this is that you get the homemade touch which gives you a ...

Make Nichole Great Again :D

Hey Everyone Well.. last night we ended up going to the pizza buffet- the one I like that has the wings and awesome salad bar! It was actually wing night and David wanted wings- which is weird because that isn't really a David thing. all wing night is there is they have a couple different varieties than the standard ones butI just stick with what I know. I would love to go eat at the actual wing place but it is holy expensive for some reason every time we go there. Anyways, that was fun and a little different because it is rare that we go out like that on a week night. Today I was hoping I could work on that elusive story I always tell you all about and that I would work on my AW playlist but.. not so much. My mom ended up stopping by with a bunch of random stuff and then I was fighting my allergies and took an hour nap- which is not that bad but it seems like it at up my whole day!  I wasn't really sure what to make for dinner but my mom brought some lil smokies sausages so.. ...

The Apple Tale

Hey Everyone Well.. I thought I would take a minute to write before David came home- even though I am not feeling good AT ALL and I already have written today. I don't know why I am feeling like pure ick all of a sudden but I wish it would go away! I am REALLY hot , nauseous, headache and tummy ache going on for about the last hour and it sucks!  I was pretty tired because well obviously we know how I am, but I took a shower to try to wake up and even grabbed some coffee and BAM ..the bottom fell out. I am hoping it will quickly pass because I was on a roll with making the bed and washing dishes and even looking through the kitchen cabinets for more yardsale items for yardsale #2. I have been trying to get used to my new computer! Did I write about it earlier- I can't remember and am too lazy to look but my HP laptop is not even 2 years old and well.. HELLO issues. Now granted I didn't really realize how SLOW it has been until I used another computer, but there has been a battery ...
