Happy Late Thanksgiving..

Holy Cow... a lot has happened since the last time I posted. Chris and I moved into our house. We are still trying to get everything situated and organized, as well as trying to get Max's room all put together.

We had our couples baby shower two weeks ago, which turned out great. We ended up getting so much stuff. I can't wait to put everything to use.

Thanksgiving morning we had a little scare. I ended up going to the hospital and hanging out in Labor and Delivery for two hours. Ended up just being a bacterial infection.. which I am now on medication for.

I also found out I am severely anemic, which I had to go to the Hematologist for that... ended up being a waste of time.. all they did was take blood and schd. me another appointment for three weeks once they get the blood results back.

And lets not forget my face breaking out like I am back in middle school! Actually I don't think I have ever had my face break out as bad as it is. Thank goodness its just basically my chin.

I am just so ready for this little boy to make his appearance.. I am over having no energy... not being able to eat and especially looking forward to getting this Picc Line out of my arm.

Baby Max update

I had another Doctors appointment and Ultrasound today. Baby Max is doing well, he is about 2 pounds right now and everything seems to be measuring normal. =)

The Mid-Wife I saw today said that I am the Doctors Tuesday afternoon meeting talk...  and since I am on the TPN (liquid food) that I will be getting an Ultrasound every 4 weeks just to see how Max is growing, which is totally fine with me. I love getting to see him every 4 weeks. =)

In other news we are MOVING next weekend and I couldn't be more ready to move out. Living with three boys has been fun at times... but def, has been a pain the the ass majority of the time.

Happy Tuesday Everyone.

It's a .........

Today Chris and I went and had a cheater ultrasound. =) I made an appointment at a 4d place that isn't my Doctors office for Monday, but my Mom called me the other day and said that the girls at her work said they wanted to know what the gender was as well and said they would do one there.

I have a few pictures, but I will wait for the 4d ones on Monday before I put them up here.

But I won't leave you all hanging... I was totally wrong with what I thought I was having. (So much for mothers instinct)

It's a BOY!

His name will be Maddox O'Neill aka Max.

Baby Update...

I will be 16 weeks on Saturday! YAY...

I have been through a ton of stuff since the last time I posted. On July 13th I had my 2nd Doctors appointment , I did my normal urine sample, and as soon as I walked into the Dr's office I was asked if my cup of water had sugar in it from the mid-wife. I told her no, that it just had to small pieces of cantaloupe in it for some flavor. She said my urine came back with high ketones.. so high that she referred to it as a diabetic having a large Slurpee for breakfast. She quickly said that I needed to go straight to the ER to get fluids, and that I am not to go back to work until further notice. After spending 10 hours in the ER, a lady came down to talk to me about home care. The next day, a nurse came to my house and set me up on an IV and I was pretty much on bed rest, only getting up to throw up, and use the bathroom.

So, by that time a week has passed.. I am still throwing up my fluids, as well as stomach bile. I went to my follow up Doctors appointment that Thursday, and again was told that I needed to go home, and pack a bag because I needed to go to the hospital ASAP, that I needed to get a picc line, put in for my new IV, and that the Mommy and Baby unit was waiting for me.

 A short breakdown later, Chris and I were headed yet again to the hospital.

After all the general questions the nurse had to ask me,  I was finally able to relax and take everything in.  I am thankful that I had Chris there, with me as well as a room big enough for two beds so that Chris was able to stay. From there... I was know as the patient in Room 12.

I was only suppose to be in the hospital for a day, they hooked me up to fluids and then we waited for the shift change and my new nurses to come in.

The next morning, they came to get me to put in my picc line. I was a nervous wreck at that point, because I didn't know what to expect. For anyone that doesn't know a picc line is pretty much like an IV line, but more permanent. It was placed right above my right elbow on the inside of my arm, and travels up my arm.. over my collar bone and stops at the top of my heart.

After I was done was getting the p. line placed, I returned to my room and one of my Doctors came in and said that I was staying until the middle of the following week. So my planned two night stay turned into a six night stay.

During my stay in the Mommy/ Baby unit.. I had the best nurses anyone could ask for...well except for one! On my second night in the hospital my nurse that night.. freaked out on me because of my vitals and and everything else going on.. she started to panic and kept saying we need to get you up to the fourth floor, you need to be put on heart monitors and watched over night... your levels are so low that your heart could stop any minute. (cue tears and my panic mode) By this time its 9 o'clock and I was just exhausted and wanted to go to sleep and all I kept hearing was this rude nurse telling me I needed to go to the fourth floor. Chris had asked her how long I was going to be on the fourth floor and she responded back in a rudely with "that's like me telling you how long she is going to be sick for.. I don't know." This nurse explained NOTHING to Chris or I about why I had to go to the fourth floor. Finally about 12 o'clock I got settled into the fourth floor room.. which let me state.. the fourth floor is the stroke unit.. I was put on a heart monitors.. I was not able to get up to use the restroom with out the bed alarm going off.. because apparently they thought I wasn't capable of going by myself and told me I needed a nurse. I now refer to the fourth floor as the dungeon.. my room was dark.. dirty and old. I had to have the nurse go and find a pull out chair for Chris to sleep on.

The next morning one of the favorite nurses came up to the dungeon to check on the baby's heart beat and she looked at me and said.. this room is disgusting. I'm talking to Dr. C and as soon as your potassium is up your coming back down to the second floor, they aren't keeping you here another night. I spent the whole day on the fourth floor and was finally brought back to the Mommy/ Baby unit about 4 o'clock that afternoon.

Come to find out my other nurses that I love.. have each been in different departments of the hospital so they kind of knew my situation and how to deal with it. But the evil nurse from the night before (who is older then all the other nurses) was not use to my situation. The reason why I had to go to the dungeon is because my potassium was at a level of 2.1. A normal level is 3.5 - 5.0. If it would have dropped lower to a 1 then my heart could have stopped.

After they got all my levels back up... potassium.. sodium.. phosphates etc. I was pretty easy from there. I was put on a nasty liquid diet for the first four days, which consisted of soup broth.. nasty cherry jello that was yellow(???) and juice. That was three times a day. I barely ate any of it. After that I was put on a bland diet... baked french fries and turkey sandwich.

When I was finally discharged from the hospital.. I was sent home with my picc line still in and put back on home care. So a nurse comes everyday.. to check my picc line.. and to make sure that I am adding everything to my liquid food that I am on. My house looks like a medical facility with all the white bags filled with syringes... needles... cords... medicine...etc. The refrigerator has been stock piled with my huge bags of IV fluids.

I went to the Doctors again on Wednesday, and was told I was to stay on my home IV until I could eat regular food three times a day. And still not able to go to work. All I have to say is thank goodness I have great insurance as well as Aflac!!!

So that's it... that's everything that has been going on with me.

Now don't get me wrong....

I am excited about being pregnant.. well as excited as I can be right now. I have been sick for the past 10 weeks, with constant vomiting. I have lost 25lbs as of yesterday when I stepped on the scale. I had to go to the Emergency Room last Tuesday from being seriously dehydrated from all the vomiting.

I know I will all be worth it in the end, but I seriously have lost ALL my energy to do anything! Coming to work has become a struggle... not only that dealing with my O.M is making it worse. Everyday I come in she is asking how I feel... lets see my eyes have sunken in... I look like death.. you tell me how I look and that explains how I feel!

Already today I have thrown up three times. After coming back from my second round at the office, I told the O.M. I wasn't sure how long I was going to be able to make it today. Her response is... is this everyday you are throwing up? UMMMMM... yeah re re... I tell you this everyday! Then she goes are you at least trying to eat something? Ummm.... NO! I just decided I wasn't going to feed my unborn child at all!! Yes, I am trying to eat.. dried cereal....fruit..... lemon water... jello.... NOTHING STAYS DOWN!!!  Well you have to try to eat. Like I don't know this???

She is the most selfish, vain person I have meet so far in my life!

I am seriously disgusted by the whole outcome of the Casey Anthony trail!!!!

How does someone drug their child so they can go out and party and get away with it?

How can someones child go missing for a month and not have it reported?

Long venting post.

Do any of you have a stage 5 clinger friend? I know that is mean to say, but I have one. I cherish all my friends, but my stage 5'er (who i have known since middle school) is seriously wearing on me!

Not only me, but my sister too.

I cut off all contact with 5'er when I went through my divorce, and just recently within the last year became friends with her again.

She is the type of friend that needs CONSTANT reassurance about people being her friend... she gets her feelings hurt when my sister and I are hanging out. Knowing this my sister and I try to keep it under wraps with telling her when we are doing stuff... but when she finds out she text my sister with a " Well have fun, I won't keep you" or " Well I guess I will talk to you later" just snide little remarks that aren't necessary. My sister and I shouldn't have to hide when we hangout... we are sisters... that's what sisters do.

Not only do I hear about it about my sister and I hanging out.. I have to hear about her two sisters who live in North Carolina and how she feels out of the loop because she isn't around them. I mean we all can't stop our lives just to accommodate her.

She text me 24/7.... and I know I should respond back to her, and majority of the time I do, but if I am at work.. I shoot her a short text and she gets mad..what part about I"M AT WORK.. does she not understand? I can't just stop what I am doing to text her all the time. And since I am on the phone probably 93% of the time at work... I do not want to be on the phone when I get home from work nor do I want to text everyone. As soon as I get home I put my phone on the charger and forget about it.

My sister was the third person I told when I found out I was pregnant, and asked her not to say anything to 5'er or to anyone else for that matter. I wasn't ready to get flooded with text from her or anyone else.

I found out on a Friday night, and Chris and I went out of town on Saturday morning until that following Monday. Tuesday afternoon I shot 5'er a text and told her the news and what do you know... she blew up my phone with text. She proceeds to call my sister and bitch her out because she didn't tell her I was pregnant.. my sisters response was Carrie asked me not to say anything to anyone. And then she text me telling me her feelings were hurt that I didn't tell her the same time I told my sister. I told her that I haven't even told my Mom, Chris' parents or the roommates yet.

I don't get it.... I don't know what to do with this girl. I don't need her stressing me out or her being dramatic ALL THE TIME!!

Anyone else LOVE that movie???  (i live with three guys including chris)

All in all Chris and I are excited.. still taking everything in.

No Tornados here... just one massive storm

 This is what my area looked like yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock. Thirty minutes prior to this is was 97 degrees and sunny, and I was laying out in the back yard catching rays with Chris. I went inside to take a shower and when I got out this is what we were dealing with.
 Although we didn't get hail at our house a few areas around us saw a good amount....
 There are downed trees every where.... power lines down... some schools are closed...
 If I was the driver of this truck I probably would have crapped my pants... that body of water right there is the Atlantic Ocean...
 And the weather people said we had wind gust up to 70+ mph...
I surely thought our neighbors huge maple tree (not pictured above) was going to get torn out of the ground. Luckily, we only lost power for about a minute or two... after that I was glued to the Weather Channel watching all the horrible weather moving across Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas.

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was effected by this horrible storm.

End of the world???

Any one think the world is seriously going to end this Saturday May 21st 2011?

I am thinking, maybe I should have an end of the world party? Sounds like fun.

Have you ever ate soooo much.......

 Last night my sister, myself and a few of our friends went here for dinner last night for our friend Amber's Birthday dinner.

We devoured the spinach artichoke cheese as well as the fiesta cheese.
 Of course I had to get a house salad to with their delicious house dressing... and then we had a feast with the entree and all the yummy goodness of the sauces.
 Which then lead us to dive into some cocktails and what some may call the best part of the meal the dessert part (my favorite by far is the cheese).
Which then leads me to the title of this post.... have you ever ate soooooo...much.........

That you throw up when you get home? Cause that happened to me twice last night. And no, I am not sick.... nor pregnant. I just ate a crap ton of food, and in the restaurant I even mentioned the yacking may take place when I got home. And sure enough when I got home... I had to pry myself out of my skinny jeans (note to self NEVER wear skinny jeans when going to Melting Pot) went in to wash my face and brush my teeth... and it was all over from there.

I will say that I felt much better after the fact.

Next week I have a Cancer fundraiser to attend and guess where it's being held at??? Melting Pot!!

1. I will not be wearing skinny jeans
2. I will not eat all day long
3. I will not over eat

Pictures to come hopefully tomorrow.

I have an ass load of pictures to download from my trip to Savannah.... softball tourneys and dinner last night.

Happy Hump Day!

Hey everyone

Just wanted to say Hello to everyone.. I am here, but have nothing exciting going on or anything to really blog about, besides how much I really don't care for my job.. but it's not worth going into.

So HELLO... hopefully I will get back to blogging soon.

Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a terrific weekend.

As everyone knows last night it was announced that Osama bin Laden, has been killed. I along with millions of other people I am relieved to know this... and I am sure everyone is on edge now wondering if there will be a retaliation due to his death.

But, the reason for this post is because I want to say how PROUD I am to live in one of the largest Military based states in the U.S! I am PROUD that one of our SEAL based teams here in Virginia Beach were the ones to take down this horrible person, and I am PROUD of every single person that has fought for us..... who is still fighting for us.... and who has had there life cut short for us!

I am PROUD that my Dad served 27 years in the Navy... and PROUD that Chris has spent the last 12 years serving in the Navy!

Tail Wagging Wednesday...

 I am following along with Ms. CMae on her weekly fur-baby post. I've been meaning to do this.. but my stupid computer at work acts up.. and then by the time I get home it's chaos. So here it goes..

this weeks topic is.. Your Pet's Bed.
 So here it is... this is where Layla sleeps 99.5% of the time. The other .5% she is sleeping on her bed on the floor (which I don't have a picture of).
 While Chris was out to sea, this is how she would sleep. She's a complete bed hog just like her Daddy!
All hail Princess Layla... she doesn't like getting her picture taken, doesn't she look amused.

 Since nothing interesting has been going on, in my neck of the woods, I though I would join in on WILW.

It has been gorgeous this week! Sunny with temps in the lower 80's.
The only thing that I am not loving about the perfect weather would be all the nasty.. yellow stuff referred to as pollen.
My car has looked like this for the past two weeks now.. and even though it's suppose to be black.. in person it looks like an ugly shade of green. I really should wash it, but then I figure why wash it when it will just look the same way 30 minutes after washing it.

Happy Hump Day.

Below is what my schedule will be looking like for ehh.. the next 7 months! My very loving Boyfriend has decided to play on THREE, yes three softball teams this year!!! Thank goodness one team only plays on Thursday nights. But me being the supportive girlfriend that I am.. I am normally at every single game with him. I think they are fun, and it kinda helps that he is kind of a big deal on the fields. 

It's sad that I had to make Chris and two of his coaches schedules, to let them know which team he is playing with each week. And as you will see.... there is A LOT of traveling that will be taking place too.

Happy Hump Day everyone.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

And my heart sinks.......

I probably just made some lady's day really bad..... I was confirming appointments for tomorrow.. and a patients wife just called back to let me know he passed away in January.... which lead her to break down in tears on the phone! I feel horrible. I apologized for her loss, but I still can't help but feel guilty that I called and she had a break down.

** she just called back to apologize for crying, and I told not to be sorry, that I understood. **

Prayers For Japan

I just heard that Japan has just had another 7.4 mag. Earthquake!!!

This is horrible news... my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Japan.

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

It's time....

Time to start buckling down on the weight loss issue. I have 22 days until I am in Savannah, Georgia visiting the above photo (Mansion on Forsyth Park). Chris and I will be joining one of my besties Sarah, her husband Mike and two other couples to help celebrate Sarah's 30th Birthday.

I thought I was doing a good job with not eating out nearly as much as I have in the past and I have been cooking at home more.  I've been going to the gym pretty much Monday -Friday and some Saturdays... I may or may not have went my birthday week... but that doesn't count.  And I haven't seen any results.. and the scale ...well, that definitely hasn't shown me any love.

So here it goes.. I weigh a whopping 165. And I have 22 days to lose AT LEAST 10 to 15 pounds!

So wish me luck. Please and Thank yous!

I will post my weight weekly to see if I have lost anything.

swap goodies

 I am so far behind on posting! But I finally found my camera cord so I could download my goodies I received from my swap partner Carey.  The above picture is the card and cute little box my accessories came in.

 The cute box by itself.. I love the big pink flower on it.
 My goodies on the inside.. I received a cute headband.. which I am super excited to use this Spring/Summer. A beaded bracelet which is perfect since majority of my clothes are black so it will go with pretty much everything. And last but not least.. the pretty flower ring.. I am not much of a ring person, but this ring is adorable on.. I can't wait for a night out so I can sport it.
And one final view of all my stuff and the card outside of the envelope.

AGAIN Carey.. I LOVE everything that was sent to me. =)

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Let me explain this one...... we were having a convo on who was the weakest link of the girls... of course I won that.. given all the crap Christopher at the time was putting me through. Ya know... the whole... I don't really want a girlfriend right now, I just want to do me type stuff. Well I didn't give up on his dumb butt, and everything is for the better now.
Me and the girlfriends.  And my blogger is being ridic. the past few days... so excuse this post. HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!! Hope everyone has a great night.. stay safe.  xox~c

Over it.....

today that is...and everything that comes with it.... including RUDE patients.....bratty little shits....and annoying co-workers.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

I hate surprises......

I don't know if everyone else (family) knows something I don't know?!?

Let me explain.. YES, Chris and I have been dating for 4 years!  So naturally I am always getting asked (mostly) by his friends when I am finally getting a ring. Well buddies.. your guess is as good as mine. I always tell them to ask Chris, and I tend not to eavesdrop because I don't want to get discouraged with his answer. His normal response is.... " She needs to get her act right first!"

Anyhoo..... lets bring it back to this past weekend.. Chris has started softball again, and the two things I get out of  his teammates are.... Are you engaged yet? or they lift up my left hand to see if there is any bling. Sorry again boys.. still nothing! 

My sister joined me this weekend, and one of Chris' good friend asked the infamous question.. to which my sister chimes in with....... "it will be soon!"..... umm.... WHAT??? As I choke on my sweet tea... I usually just laugh it off, but then I went to my Mom's house for my Birthday dinner and presents.. and her card said some sentimental stuff.... blah blah blah...... Love, Mom....... "This is going to be a GREAT year!!" ...  

So in my head, I know they know something. But lemme tell you if there is no ring, say by May.... I am not going to count on anything for the rest of the year.

And let me also add that I will be really really (insert sad face here).


Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Today is the day ..

I turn the big 31 today... and for some reason... my stupid computer won't up load my lovely post I had for today... so stay tuned. =)

Thursday, March 3, 2011


Is it just me or is it REALLY ANNOYING when other people eat your food? Whether it be roommates or co-workers. Or am I just being completely unreasonable/ bitchy/ dramatic?

Thoughts please?

Healthy Choice has done-a me right......

Since I am on a quest to loose about 20+ poundage's, and on the quest to eating healthier except for the weekends. My co-worker has turned me on to these delicious quick and easy meals. Not only are they packed with protein but they are only about 230-330 calories. AND you get a pretty decent amount, not like those "other" brands that barely have anything in them and you feel like you can eat 5 of them. 

Have any of you tried these? If not... and you are looking for a healthy lunch thing for work these would def. be my number one choice...... and in case you wanted to know what my second choice would be.. it would be Chick Fil A which isntsohealthy!

A little bit of this..... a little bit of that.......

First thing first...  Mrs.Bear over @ Think Happy Thoughts tagged me for an award.

Name of the list 7 facts about Moi.

1~ I have an obsession with Cook Books... I barely use them when I do cook, but I still can't get enough of them.

2~ I am a Spring and Fall girl. (I love the beach... but don't love the 100+ degree weather sweating and having the sand stick to you and then having to get in the car.. which is scorching hot! ... and the winter... the 20 degree weather not so nice espesh.. when we never see snow!)

3~ If I get married again.... I want a black wedding dress.

4~ Two of my favorite foods are pasta and fish. I could eat either one of those dishes every night.

5~ I am patiently waiting for a certain black diamond to be placed on my left ring finger.

6~ I have an obsession with the crossword and find the difference in the pictures in the PEOPLE magazines.

7~ My new favorite summer drink is a RUBY RED CRUSH one of the local hot spot's here in Virginia Beach Waterman's is know for there Orange crushes, but last year they started the Ruby Red one.. and let me tell you it is TO.DIE.FOR! (the first link has both the orange and ruby red one)

Now I am suppose to pick some gals to pass this on too! But it's always hard for me to pick. So I pass this along to all of you! =)

Is it okay to have like twenty jean jackets???? I mean they aren't like Bon Jovi type?!?

I am FINALLY getting around to un-packing my boxes at Chris' house and I didn't realize how much clothes I actually have.... granted most do not fit, because.. ummmm how did Chris put it the other day.... "I got comfortable in the relationship". Un-packing everything now is making even more motivated to get back into my size 28 seven jeans!

I took a pair out in the living room to show Chris my goal and the roomie was like ha ha ha... are those little kid jeans... my response: no dummy I wore these 2 years ago!!

Anyhoo... off to go hang stuff...toss stuff and organize the closet again for the hundredth time this month.

Changes are in the AIR.....

 Chris is trying to get a hold of the Realtor, so we can go look at this beauty! 
I LOVE this house! Before my ex-husband and I decided to build a house, we looked at this same model in the same neighborhood and loved it back then.

There are a few minor updates that need to get done... and the back yard needs some new sod/ fertilizer, but those are little fixes.

I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I am REALLY REALLY excited about this house!

Everyone knows what day it is....

 My hand delivered Flowers and Balloon from my LOVAH Boi!
Up close and personal look of the flowers.

I love that he surprised me with these. I literally was about to write how I probably wouldn't get flowers today, because he isn't the "send flowers" type. But once again he pulled through. 

However am so amazed at how people can get so ..ummm.. whats the word I want to use... Debbie Downer'ish on Hallmark Holidays. My O.M just walked up a patient and was like ... aww.. those are pretty... I told my husband not to send me any flowers today.... SERIOUSLY.. I don't care! Just leave it at "aww... those are pretty" and walk away..... walk away.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous LOVERS DAY.... and I leave you with one of my favorite quotes. 

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better then your dreams" ~ Dr. Seuss

Ohh... and before I forget....a BIG  Happy Anniversary to my Dad and Step-Mom! =)

 I ended up getting some of my wish yesterday.... it definitely snowed and is actually still snowing. And instead of being safe... and not drive in this crap... we are here at work. I was literally 2 inches from being ran off the road by an HUGE Cadillac Escalade... and then within the next half a mile.. the same Caddy hit someone! I am just glad it wasn't me he hit.

Pictures to come soon... I took my time getting to work this morning.. and took my baby girl out in the snow  so I could get some pictures of her. Chris is on official camera duty today, although I doubt he will take any. 

Here's to a snowy NON snow day!!

Another note to Mother Nature...

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE....... pull through with the snow that everyone is predicting! I seriously need a snow day... a day to be lazy.... a day to have the fireplace going.... a day to let Layla run around like a wild woman outside... a day to peg Chris with snowballs...etc.


This is how lame Hampton Roads is... as of yesterday they have been talking about closing the schools as well as the Military bases.... HELLO people.. just wait until the actual "storm" comes through before you start closing everything. We all know how this goes... we they call for snow we NEVER get it!

Keep you fingers crossed for me.

Wedge love...

With Spring just around the corner, and our 50 degree weather today, I cant help but get in the mood to start looking at the cute shoes. I. LOVE. ME. SOME. SHOES! Chris gets a little annoyed when I walk in with a new pair of shoes in hand, but like he tells me when he orders crap he doesn't need... "It could be worse... I could be buying crack." 
Enough of me rambling... here are some of my Spring shoe wants this year

 One day I will have skinny legs like this again... I love these wedges found at Free People.
 And even though I am not a big flower person... these are just too cute to pass up. These can be found at Asos.
 I am in L.O.V.E with these wedges... found at Nine West.
And these are another L.O.V.E... I adore the color combo on this wedge. These are also found at Nine West.

All four of these beauties will be on my Birthday wish list.

A Letter to Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

      You BLOW! And I am not just talking about the huge storm you just blew into pretty much every state in America... but that you had my lovely state (at least my area) excluded from that storm. WHAT"S A GIRL GOTTA DO TO GET A SNOW DAY??? So while everyone else is having SNOW and ICE, you've blessed us with 70 degree weather today! Now don't get me wrong.. it's definitely nice, and you have now made me SUPER EXCITED for Spring to come. But seriously... how are you going to give us 70 degree weather one day and then drop it into the low 30's the next day??

Thanks for the teaser day.... hope you get your stuff straight and start bringing on the warmer weather... like ASAP!

P.S Chris you blow too... while I am stuck in the office.... you get to be out in the nice weather golfing!

Is it too early to be thinking about Valentines Day??

So Valentines Day is mere 28 days
 away, and yes I know... I know... it's a Hallmark Holiday, but I wanted to switch things up this year. I've decided to take the stress off of Chris and surprise him with making dinner reservations for us. NOT that he hasn't done a fabulous job of planning in the past, but I know I can be kind of bitchy whiny if it isn't perfect.

I never ask for anything on this day.. but he always seems to come through and gets me a present. This year I will be getting him this lovely little print by a local artist by the name of Rick Romano 
(above picture, for some reason my blogger wants to act crazy and not post anything in the proper order.)

We ate dinner out the other night and the restaurant we were at, had one of his prints on the wall and Chris commented that he liked it. The one shown above is not the one that was at the restaurant, but I really liked this one.

Anyone else already preparing for Valentines Day?


Help... anyone....

So I am on the hunt for a wedding video I saw on someone's blog. It was a Vegas wedding.. and they were shooting the video to surprise people at their dual birthday party I think?!? Anyone seen it or know what blog it was on???

We're OUT.....

of the blessed play off's!!

And I couldn't say it better myself Jason Whitlock.....

"The fake (punt) was ignorant. There was no reason to force anything at that point. The Pats were getting the second-half kickoff. New England panicked. The alleged “smartest” team in football played a dumb football game."

Maybe it was karma from the A$$ WHOOPIN' we gave them week 14 with the ending score being 45 - 3.... or hell... maybe it was Welkers.. bad juju's for trash talking Rex Ryan and his wifes kinky foot fetish or maybe it's because Brady was playing like a pansy.

So in that case I am rooting for the GOLD and GREEN PACKERS! NO BLACK and YELLOW or GREEN and WHITE love here!!

Sticky Balls.........

Has anyone else seen this commercial??? I was sitting out in the living room with the boys last night and this came on. We all thought it was one of those stupid spoof commercials.... but it's not.

Hopefully it will stop soon.......

my cravings for ROOTBEER FLOATS!!! The past two weeks this is all I have been craving. Chris just looks at me in disgust.... (not really) and I know they aren't doing anything with helping me in the LOSE WEIGHT CATEGORY, and I know it isn't good to have one every other night..... well okay.. every night, but they are soooo.... tasty!

I hope everyone is have a great Hump Day!!

~ Sometimes I feel bad for getting in my blogging time at work... but then I remember, everyone else does crap on the computer that isn't "work" related.

~ Dear O.M....... I don't care that your grown daughter just barely made her flight from Detroit... I don't need a play by play on when the plane is boarding.... taking off.... when her transferring flight is taxing in... and what gate she is at..... how much time she has to get from this gate to that gate. She's a big girl... and I am pretty sure that she has her big girl panties on and can deal with it..... jus' sayin.

~ Also O.M.... I don't care how much snow got dumped on everyone else... I am still in my cranky pants because I was hoping to get a snow day so I didn't have to be here today.

~ Mother Nature.... you SUCK... how is it that every state around around us got a shit ton of snow... and you just kinda like bypassed good ole' Virginia especially Virginia Beach with the white stuff.... literally everyone else around us got it... Hot'lanta...... South Cackalacky...... North Cackalacky.... Maryland...... Seriously.... WHAT GIVES!

~ Chris is sick.... UGGGGHHHHHHH.... Need I say more!

~ How is it that in an office of 5 people has SO MUCH FRICKEN drama!! I am over it... I need to find a new job.

~ I wish I could toss Chris' roommate in the "weeds" (if ya know what I mean)... He is the most inconsiderate person on the planet... (I'm not kidding he seriously is). This is our convo. yesterday afternoon...


Douche Bag: So the dogs took a little field trip this weekend...

Me: What do you mean?

Douche Bag: Well, the other night I went out.... and came back home and let the dogs out and kind of forgot about them outside, and they got out of the fence.

Me: And......

Douche Bag: Well, they got picked up by the pound... and I didn't know they were gone until I found the note on the door the next day that they had been picked up. I was so worried..... because I didn't know if I would be able to get Layla out (my dog) because she didn't have her collar on!

Me: Well no kidding.... that's because we only put it on her when we go somewhere because she is never outside without anyone.

I would NEVER....ever ever.... leave his dog out in the freezing cold and just "forget" he was out there. How can a 29 year old be that irresponsible and just forget.

Alrighty...... I think that is all I have on my mind right now.

Hiya.......... Happy New Year

Hey everyone... I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and a kick ass ringing in of the NeW YeAr!

Even though I didn't get my black diamond..... ( I wasn't really counting on it.. just wishful thinking. I didn't want the question to be popped on a holiday anyways.. I want it to be on it's own day. =) )

I had the best present I could ask for anyways.. and that was having Chris home for the holidays!!

I didn't take any pictures on Christmas day..... and I have none to share from our short vacation in New York during the blizzard... =(

However I do have some to share from NYE 2011

Do you all know how great it is to actually take pictures and smile without having braces on??? Well in case you don't know it's FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!
He was suppose to be looking at the camera with me...
Nothing better then ringing in the New Year with a group of GREAT people!

Champagne.... and red bull and vodka.. can't complain
Bottle #2

Time to do some blog catch up.... have a great Tuesday!
