Life Lately with a bullet post

In the style of Jenn, I'm doing a bullet post. It seems to be the best for an update. :)

  • I only work two day this week! Woo Hoo! I'm looking forward to some time off work
  • M has been working a lot and has been gone a lot. It feels like he's preparing for a deployment, but he's not.
  • We still don't have plans for Thanksgiving yet :/ The planner in me is going a little crazy. I'm getting our house in order, just in case and we have a turkey, just in case.
  • Pretty girl will be 3 on the 15th of December! How is that possible?!?!?!

  • I have come down with a cold and it's kicking my butt!
  • Pretty girl FINALLY let me put her hair into a pony tail for the first time. She looked sooo cute!
gone are the cute pictures I think :(

  • Pretty girl got a new bike a few weeks ago. She outgrew her tricycle, and instead of waiting for her birthday, we got her one early and she LOVES  it! She would ride it every day if she could.
Her new Sophia bike

  • We still have Halloween candy in our house and I cannot wait for it to be gone.
  • I'm sooooo excited to start getting ready for Christmas time! It's my favorite time of year, but I refuse to start getting ready for it before Thanksgiving is over. One holiday at a time.
  • Of course that doesn't mean I won't put up our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving :)
  • Work is going good, but super stressful and busy. Many days I don't have time to just stop and sit all day.
  • I haven't read a book in over a month and I'm missing it. I have two I want to read, but just haven't found the time.
  • Booger is finally getting the hang of school. Yea!!!!! He is really good at math and loves it. He talks about his three best friends all of the time. Should I be worried two are girls?
  • I met one's mother the other day and she informed me how her daughter REALLY liked Booger. His first crush. How cute!
First school picture. Where did my baby go???

  • I need to start working out again and cut pop out of my diet, but I can't seem to find the motivation to do so. I've gained about 5lbs back since this summer and I'm afraid more will creep on during the holidays. :(
  • Otherwise we are just trucking along. I want to blog more, but finding the time has been difficult. I promise to try harder along with everything else I have to change or fix.

Need some help

Ok everyone, I need some help. Every time I comment on someone's blog using my google account I get an email saying "delivery system notification (failure)" Can anyone tell me why I am getting this and how can I fix it?
I've tried googling the answer and can't come up with anything to help fix it. Thanks in advance!

Second. I got this Chroma color pallet from Sephora for my birthday. Let me give you the back story. I never used to wear make up, unless I was dressing up to go out. Over the summer my friends introduced me to Sephora and I found make up tutorials on youtube (my favorite is Jaclyn Hill)and I'm not hooked. I wear eye make up every day and I'm loving it. I love the fact that it covers up my dark circles and helps make me put more together.
How cool is that?!?! Look at all those pretty colors!

Anywho. Since I got this Chroma color pallet I have been matching my eye liner to my outfit. My question is, is that weird? Like if I'm wearing a pink sweater, I choose the pink eye liner. If I'm wearing blue, I pick the blue eye liner. Sometimes I pick brown or black, but generally I have been matching it. Is that weird?

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer! I do appreciate it! :)

My Birthday Recap

Well, I guess I am a little late on this post, seeing as my birthday was on November 5th. Oops! Sorry! Life has gotten a little hectic for me lately. But without further ado....here is my recap :)

me as a baby on the left and current on the right

My birthday fell on a Wednesday, which is never fun. It was just a normal day, but my phone was blowing up with people calling and texting to wish me a happy birthday. That makes me happier than anything else, just having people acknowledge that it's my birthday. Which everyone did by the end of the day. Both kids were super excited for my birthday, which was nice.

That night my mom made my favorite meal for my birthday. It was chicken casserole and chocolate ├ęclair cake for dessert. The kids and I spent the night at my mom's house (as M was out of town again) just hanging out.

A few friends from work were planning on going out on Saturday and invited me with them. Which I thought was nice seeing as the only time I spend with them is at lunch. Thankfully on my way up to White Buffalo (my favorite country bar) two of my good girlfriends called me to tell me they were going to White Buffalo and I should come with them. Haha! I thought that was pretty funny. Let me tell you I had a BLAST! I danced and laughed WAY too much! It was so good for my soul! I spent the entire night just hanging out with my girlfriends. One of my favorite things about White Buffalo is that you can go there with a group of girls and never speak to anyone else. It's just a nice place to go to hang out with your girlfriends. No sleazy guys coming up to you, actually no guys ever approach our group anyways. Which is just nice.

I'm not good at making faces at the camera....hehe

trying one more time

cowboy boots!!!!

cooling off and being silly

It was just an overall great birthday. I hate that I'm a year older, but it was awesome to finally get to go out and celebrate my birthday (I haven't done that in about 3 years, not even my 30th)

It would have been nice if M could have celebrated with me, but it just wasn't in the cards for us to be together again this year. Maybe next year.

Do you like going out special for your birthday? What's your favorite thing to do to celebrate?

Happy Halloween

It was another great Halloween!
The kids had a great time and so did I. Booger and Pretty girl both had parties at their schools and had a great day! Who doesn't love a day full of candy and fun?
For me, we had quite a few kids absent and overall it wasn't a horrible day. I even had a Halloween shirt to wear. I should have taken a pic of it because it was really cute and I got a lot of compliments about it. Bad blogger :(
After school, I had to pick up candy to be passed out and dinner of course. The house was cleaned and dinner made and ate. Finally it was time to go Trick-or-treating. The kids could hardly wait! We got them dressed and headed out. We ended up walking over a mile and went down 4 of the streets near us. I was kind of disappointed in the amount of houses that were handing out candy. As well as the amount of people who were actually out trick-or-treating. I remember as a kid there being TONS of people going house to house. This year it seemed like no one was out. Thankfully neither Booger nor Pretty Girl noticed. They had a great time and were pooped out by the time we got home.
Over all it was a great Halloween.

Booger was Optimus Prime and Pretty Girl was Belle

Seeing as I stink at taking pictures this year, I decided I would go through the Halloweens of the past since moving to Florida. :)

First year I was Kitty and went out with people I worked with. It was such a great night!
Top L and bottom L- M and I were Army people the first year we were together, Top R I was a "doctor" and Bottom R is me as a kitty from the first year in Florida :)
Booger's Past Halloweens

Top L- Booger's first Halloween he was Tiger, Middle L he was a Lion, Bottom R- He was Thomas, Bottom L- He was Jake the Pirate and Top R- was this year's Optimus Prime
Pretty Girl's past Halloweens
L- This year she was Belle from Beauty and the Beast; Top R she was a Lion for her first Halloween; Bottom R- She was Cinderella.
Halloween is one of Booger's FAVORITE holidays. He talks about what he is going to be All.Year.Long! It's cute! But trying to convince a 5 year old he has to wait a whole year is quite tricky!
I hope you all had a great Halloween!!!!!
