Nail Polish Reveal!!

Friday, November 30, 2012

I have been having so much fun with the swaps lately. This time I did a nail polish swap with Rachel over at Lala Lists and I was paired up with Kaylee over at All Things Bright and Beautiful

She sent me a great package!! 

Here is what she picked out for me.. 


First off.. I LOVE the card! So sweet..

Helloooo.. I won't be blogging for long tonight. I have had a super emotional couple of days and I need rest. Last night at this time, I was crying my eyes out. I was so worried about Jackson and the rest of us too that I didn't sleep that well. I woke up early.. and by lunch time 2 real life miracles happened. I am totally shocked that things worked out the way they did. 

Even though tomorrow will be MUCH better, I have a lot to do. I have a bunch of insurance paperwork to fill out and send in for Jackson.. then I have some shopping to do and I am also suppose to take my phone to the store to get it exchanged because the damn thing won't send or receive text messages. However, I am thinking that won't happen until Saturday or Sunday. I just don't think I will have the time to get all that running done tomorrow. But I'll try. The drive to the phone store is nice so maybe I will try to get it in around lunch time. 

Thank you guys for participating in the blog hop today! It was so much fun. I have the nail polish link up coming up tomorrow so stay tuned for that post tomorrow afternoon sometime. I wish I would have had time to get it done today but time just didn't cooperate with me. 

I hope you had a great Thursday and a even better Friday. 

xoxo

Thankful Thursday..

Last night I was a wreck. That picture above was going to be what accompied last night blog post.. oh wait.. I didn't blog. Like I said I was a complete mess. First off for all you guys who are wondering what was upsetting really was about health insurance for Jackson and the huge amount of bills that just became so over whelming for me. And last night.. it was just too much for me to cope with. 

Its ok Thursday!

Its Ok Thursdays

Happy Thursday! 

Its ok 

that my head is a total mess today. I really feel like I am in total melt down mode. Sigh. 

Its ok

that my husband is working a ton of hours and I have barely had any time with him. It would be nice if we just made time to talk. 

 Its ok

that I didn't get near the amount of sleep I needed last night. Waking up for Jackson this morning was a big struggle.

Its a Blog Hop!

15 Day blogger Challenge

Hello!! Today and for the next 14 days!  am linking up with A Little Unhinged for the 

Getting to know the Blogger

link up! Its all great when we can take a little time to get to know each other! This blogging community is HUGE and there are so many great bloggers.. and it will be great making some new friends! If you blog, be sure to join up!! 

I am running a little late tonight with this post.. but at least its up.. For this post, I wanted to dig out some  old pictures.. so here we go! 

What's on the Menu - Turkey Tetrazzini


Hello!! I hope you are having a beautiful Wednesday evening! I am getting ready to go make dinner ( not this! ) but I thought I would take a few minutes to share with you our Turkey Tetrazzini Recipe! Its a great way to use left over turkey and you could even make it with chicken! 

Today's Look... Featuring Maybelline Color Tattoo - #25 Bad to the Bronze



I haven't done a ton of Today's Looks lately and I thought that I would do one today because I am still totally in love with the Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadows. I think I own the entire collection but I had to just pick one or recommend just one it would have to be this one!! 

This is such a beautiful brown bronzy color.. yes, I know have done other posts about this one but I just LOVE IT as much now as I did many months ago when I bought it. 

As you can see with the picture above, you can wear it light or you can build it up for a more dramatic look. For Today's look..I had my entire make up done in about 6 minutes.. and I just used my finger to blend the color in for a light wash of pretty brown color. I don't have crease problems with these little creamy pots. I don't even use a primer with them either. However, if you have oily lids.. you might want to. You can also layer powder shadows on top if you want. Which I do a lot but for easy fast application.. I just blend in the color with my fingers and it works great! 

For the rest of my face today.. I just used Clinque Pour Refining Foundation .. some Milani Bronzer Smashbox full exposure mascara and some Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm Stain. 

I think this is perfect for any day you are wanting to hurry up with the make up process.. try the Maybelline Tattoo post in Bad to the Bronze because I know it would look great on any skin tone! 

Happy Wednesday!

Good Morning!

the three grand essentials of #happiness  #quotes #inspiration #tea #morning #love #happy

Morning everyone! 

Hope you are getting a great start to the day. I woke up feeling pretty good but I have a husband who woke up pretty grumpy. He's back to working a lot of hours and its starting to catch up with him. =(  No day off this week for him until Sunday. 

I got up and got Jackson to school.. came home and made a very simple breakfast.. 

Photo: Easy breakfast

and I am trying to decide rather to lay back and doze off for a couple hours or get up and do something. Honestly.. I am not sure which one I am going to do. Sleeping sounds nice but I am actually just starting to feel awake so I might just stay up.. but then again.. maybe not! 

The house looks pretty good but I do have some things to pick up today. I have already made all the beds upstairs and brought down late night snack dishes. It would be so nice if my family would pick up their own dirty dishes every morning but that never happens. Never. I have an old laundry basket that I use to just go around collect dishes from room to room. Its really the only way I have found to be able to do it in 1 trip.

I keep trying to talk Scott into working until the middle of February and then move us to Florida.. Last night he wasn't really liking the idea but today he seems to think it might be ok to do.. Ha! Never know.. I might get us down there sooner rather than later! =)

Well.. I need another cup of coffee.. I'll be back a little later! 

Have a great day!

Goodnight.

goodnight

Just a very quick good night. I am still not feeling very good. My headache is still lingering around.. its manageable but I am scared to death that anything will set it off and cause me a lot of pain. I should have just stopped fighting it and went to the ER. I just don't want to have to sit there for hours and the strong medication they have to give me.. knocks me out for about 18-24 hours.. so I am trying to avoid it at all costs. I am surprised at how long this has lasted. 

Thankfully I have the most loving adorable husband that I can cuddle up to and fall asleep with. He's sleeping like a baby right now and it won't be long before I close my eyes too. 

I have been pretty much doing everything without Scott being home. I am even doing my best with Jackson's crazy math homework. Thankfully I had a little helper tonight.. 

Photo: Jackson has a great math helper tonight!!

I was really thankful that Brandon helped out tonight. Jackson's math homework seems like from outer space. I totally don't get it but that's ok.. he's doing good with homework and school. I am really proud of him. Jackson told me just the other night that while he loves and misses his daddy, he doesn't want to move back with him. But he wants to visit! =) Jackson and I are super close and talk about everything. He's such a sweet little boy. 

And Brandon is the big brother he never wanted!! But..they get a long really well and Brandon is just a big kid too! He was home most of the day and he barely made any sound! He's quiet and I don't mind that so much. However listening to everyone's laughs and giggles sure is sweet too! 

Well.. I am getting up in 6.5 hours so I need some sleep. Not sure if I will come home and go back to bed or if I will stay up tomorrow. Guess it depends on how I feel in the morning. 

Sweet Dreams

I hope you are having a great evening! I am starting to feel better.. so I am a happy girl. I still have a slight headache but its nothing like it was so thankfully I don't have the major pain that I was dealing with. 

Scott is home now and we both are eating dinner watching the voice. Hes been really tired but he's in a good mood. He's happy at the new place but its a long ride to and from work and that just makes him even more tired after an 11 hour work day. =( You know on the tv today it was talking about this study.. It said the first 4 minutes when you and your loved one comes together after work.. sets the tone for the rest of the night. So the first 4 minutes tonight.. we hugged, kissed, laughed.. and cuddled up! I am going to give it a great try to see how well it sets our night moods! =)

For dinner tonight we are enjoying.. 


Turkey Tetrazzini. It was a perfect way to get that extra turkey used up! You could use chicken too. I made a step by step video that should be up tomorrow sometime. Its super yummy!!

I am waiting on the finale of Dancing with the Stars tonight. Are you watching it.. The 3 left are such great dancers and tonight is the free style and then the winners will be picked. Wonder who it will be... I really like Shawn and Derick and pulling for them to win.. But that Val is one gorgeous  man and I would be happy if he won too! 

I am still not feeling 100% but I am doing better. I just don't want for it to get worse. I haven't had this serious of a headache for a couple months.. and while the pain lingers on right.. its bearable. I think I am going to watch the first hour of DWTS downstairs and then around 10 head upstairs and enjoy it from my fluffy bed. I got all the sheets washed and blankets fluffed up. and its like laying in a cloud! Who do you want to win!? It should be a great show tonight! 

Hope you have a great evening. I plan on working on some posts while I am laying back!

Gloomy Day


What a gloomy day around here. I am still not feeling very good. I woke up at 7 am to get Jackson ready for school but then I come home.. go back to sleep and wake up with the same painful headache. So I took more meds.. and right now as I am typing this.. I am eating some lunch and getting ready to take some more medicine. My stomach is a mess from all that medication but if I don't get a hold on the pain.. I seriously will be in the hospital in a few hours. Thankfully right now its not as  bad as last night but I am still in pain.. =(

I did get up and take it easy for an hour or so then I ran out to the market to get some stuff for dinner.. no matter how bad I feel.. my family needs dinner. I don't plan on doing much today. I put on a comfy pair of sweats.. got the fireplace going and I don't plan on cleaning a damn thing ( except the kitchen ) today. I didn't even make any of the beds. Nope.. I am doing good to just sit here. I think I will be ok once the medicine kicks in but I am not taking chances. I am just going to take it as easy as I can. 

Scott won't be home till around 8.. so I have a lot of time on my hands. I just want to get feeling better and have a great night! 

I'll be back soon.

Hard Day..



Hey you guys.. Sorry for the lack of posts considering I told you I would be putting up other posts through out the afternoon. Well.. 4pm came and I got the worst headache. I am seriously lucky that I didn't end up in the ER tonight. I took 2 shots.. about 8 Advil.. a bunch of coffee..( caffeine helps ) and numerous bags of ice. Its almost 1am now and I am just starting to feel better. I really should be trying to sleep it off but here I am on my laptop. 

Thank God I am feeling a little bit better. At one point, I seriously thought about driving myself to the hospital. If it wasn't for Jackson and all his homework, I probably would have went. I don't know how we got it done. I'm guessing its all wrong but I plan on going and checking it one more time in just a few minutes. I have no idea what caused the migraine.. none.. I ate breakfast... but I didn't eat again till after 8pm.. so maybe that was it but that's usually ok for me. Who knows.. but it was terrible.

Scott made it home about 8.. and was really tired. I tried to hang out with him as long as I could but I eventually came to bed. It didn't take too long for him to follow either. He had a long day and he's going to have a long week. He can't take my little Jackson to school anymore because he has to leave earlier now. Which TOTALLY SUCKS but I can come home and go back to bed. I worked all day around here and then had a very painful night.. so its going to be an easier day tomorrow. Brandon doesn't work tomorrow so he will be home too. He's quiet.. I probably won't even know hes here most of the day. I will try to catch up on blogging tomorrow! 

But now its time for rest so I wake up feeling much better than I do now. 

Wishing you all a great Tuesday. 

xoxo

Busy Monday..

Monday, November 26, 2012



Who ever said being a stay at home wife and mother is not a job clearly has not lived in my home. I stay so freaking busy just trying to keep this house up. Today is no different. Somehow the 2nd floor isn't near as bad as the first floor and normally its the opposite.

I will have to admit today has been a little nicer because I am not having to clean around a houseful of boys. They have no problems sitting around watching me clean while they play video games. Scott does help some but he makes a lot of messes too.

I still have at least another hour to go but I needed to sit down and take a break. Jackson just got home with a bunch of homework.. he's got a whole page of crazy math problems that I will probably struggle with! I can't count to save my life.

Scott won't be home till around 8 tonight. I am sure he is going to be tired.. he got up at 630 and have been going every since.. I got a 2 hour nap from 10-12 but he sure didn't. I do have to say, it feels so much better that he is not at that other dealership. The only good thing was is the location but it feels really good that he's not there anymore. I just hope he feels the same!

Well.. I am busy washing bedding and I still have the kitchen to clean up. I leave that to last and clean it while I cook dinner. I really needed to run to the store but I am finding something out of the freezer for dinner. After all this cleaning the last thing I want to go do is shop. That can wait till tomorrow.

I plan on doing more blogging later this evening.. I just want to get the house done first! =) I also having a Monday Movie Review coming up soon too! 

Hope you are having a great Monday.

Morning...


I don't know what happened.. but I got out of the bed at 6am.. which was AN HOUR before the alarm was set to go off.. WTF? Well, I got husby to work on this very cold morning..

P5_largeHello! 

I am blogging a little early for me because 7am is going to come really really fast. I totally hate the idea of getting out in the cold morning but I am thinking a stop at one of my favorite coffee shops will make it a little better. 

I am afraid a bigger change is about to happen that I am not going to like much more. Scott has a longer drive now to work so I don't think he will be able to take Jackson to school.. which totally SUCKS!! I hate cold mornings.. I don't want to put my son of the school bus in the morning because I don't want him to have to walk in the cold early hours of the morning. But Gosh.. I hate the idea of getting out each morning but if I have to.. then so be it. 

It just so happens that tomorrow is going to be the coldest day of the week. Its not going to be easy climbing out of a warm bed. I don't want to be very grumpy in the morning because I want Scott to have a clear head going into his new dealership. So somehow I have to be kind and cheery in the morning. Yea.. don't know how in the hell I am going to do that. But at least Scott gets a new car tomorrow so I won't have to worry about him using my car anymore. I hate that he gets in there and changes all the settings. I about killed him when he switched all the radio stations. I use my cd changer the most but I still have certain stations programmed in and husby got his ass in trouble for changing them all up!

Quiet Evening..

Tumblr_lwh8ndhzdg1qgo17mo1_500_large


I have been busy today cleaning up our house. Its big.. and it takes a lot of work to keep up. And it never stays picked up for long. But instead of doing it all tomorrow.. I thought I would get a jump start on things. Plus the service for my cousin is going on and it's helped keep it off my mind so much.. Its hard to not think about it.. its rather heartbreaking. Not only does it hurt that he had to do that to himself to feel peace but also because our family just keeps disappearing. So its been kinda a somber day.

We did decide on fast food again for a late afternoon snack. Jackson was really wanting some nuggets so we took off...


and I made his lazy butt go too. We have got use to the Mickey D life.. it seems to work every time! 


I will be back to cooking this week. I don't know about tonight but things are getting back to normal around here. Scott is going to be working long hours. I am really going to miss him but I we text a lot and he's only a phone call away. I just hope its better than where he was working. Hopefully he will start coming home with a smile on his face! 

I still need to finish the Christmas Tree but I am not sure I will get all that done tonight. Scott still needs to put the train and lights above the door.. But laundry has my attention tonight. Gosh.. laundry.. laundry.. laundry.. is a never ending job in our home. 

I am going to try to get another 15 day Get to know the Blogger post up in a little while. i am trying to catch up!! 

Anyway, I hope you are having a great evening.. its sucks tomorrow is MONDAY.. Yuck. I have to be up super early..so I should try to get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. 

Talk to you soon!
