Hey Everyone! Well let's see what has been going on in my world- Did i mention David broke my toaster the other night? I think it was Monday - either he dropped it (he's got a knack for that) or he went to whack it to get the crumbs out or something... I don't know I really never got a full explanation lol. I was sitting here at the computer and he's like oops. and I am like oh god what and there was a big chunk out of it. The funny thing was my mom was just talking to us the other day that she had her toaster since she got married and of course that was a looong time ago and I had my toaster since we got married and yeah. I even had let Davids dad an bro borrow it at one point when my mom had got a ton of toaster strudels and we were sick to death of them and we gave them to them lol. I figured if it was gonna have something happen to it it would have happened then lol. Well after the fact I was talking the other night that I hate that we always have small kitchens and have … [Read more...]

Hey Everyone Well that awesome mood I was in yesterday? boy that sure didn't follow through into today lol. I don't know - I think the finale of PLL just really threw me for a loop - it was such utter BS CRAP and made NO SENSE WHAT SO EVER UGH...and for some reason when I woke up today I just have not had a good spirit about me but I am trying! I blame it on the girly stuff and move on! Thankfully that is about over with for this go round anyways :) When I was over at my moms Friday she was offering me my old toy chest and I was wanting it but didn't know what I would do with it or where to put it. When I came home I got to thinking about it and I was like well I could clean out some tubs /baskets of purses in my closet and sit it under the right side closet shelf area. Of course she has now decided my dad needs to reinforce the bottom of it so.. I don't know when I will ever get it over here lol I wish she would go ahead and bring it because it would really give me something to … [Read more...]

hey everyone well.. I managed to go all weekend and through the entire blog a thon without writing again lol. I do tend to do better at the winter one so.. yeah. Friday I had to get my hair done before I pulled it all out. It hadn't been cut or colored in I don't know when and I was sick of the gray. Unfortunately my mom decided to not color it but she bleached it and I am totally 100% bleach blonde which would be o.k I guess if I wasn't ghost white... Ugh! Plus it is so dry and fly away so.. whatever anything is better than it was lol. I haven't straightened it in weeks, and still haven't since it was fixed so we'll see how that goes- Heck it is summertime and I just slather a bunch of leave in conditioner in it and keep it pulled back and it saves the heat damage right? Saturday I had planned to go somewhere and eat a nice lunch after David got back from washing the car. HA yeah. Let me just say his brother was parking his car here and meeting their mom to go somwhere and … [Read more...]

Hey Everyone Well.. I can't believe how fast this week has went by! actually- this day is going by at a crazy speed! I fell back asleep before David even left this morning - though he woke me up when he left but that was o.k I went right back! I got up pretty early on and then my mom stopped by for a few min because I had got Sam some meow mix bistro food in rotisserie chicken and he REFUSES to eat it which is totally random- he has never turned down food in 7 years so ??? I gave her that food for big boy and she brought him some friskies like he usually has so things should be better now I guess lol. David is taking tomorrow off. We originally had some plans but they fell through and he wanted to still take the day off, so that is fine and dandy. I will likely go over to my moms to get my hair done finally wahoo lol. I was going to have her to do it today but it is raining and so I was like well.. it will give me something to do tomorrow- plus with David I won't have to feel … [Read more...]
