Rested..


Afternoon friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday! Even though its 2 in the afternoon.. we are just starting to get out of the beds and wake up. Our late night swimming is wearing us all out! Brittany is still sound asleep and Zane just got up. I think it was 4am before I finally dozed off. And guess what? We are doing it all again tonight! In the evening, we are heading back to the YMCA to do more laps. I might even do some walking today too. Who knows.. but I am doing my best to make some healthy changes. I do still smoke and believe me.. I can tell when doing those laps in the pool but I plan on quitting AGAIN.. I really do want to make some changes. I took some video yesterday that will be up in just a bit.. I am going to vlog through it all and maybe it will inspire you to get a little more healthy too! I am not in anyway a fitness person but I think the excercise makes my muscles feel better. I have serious ankle problems and can't do a ton of walking but I can get in that pool. Besides the YMCA tonight.. we don't really have any plans tonight. Tomorrow we are taking off for a day at Lake Lure which should be a lot of fun! This time we are probably not going hiking.. but just stay at the beach all day. They have a ton of things to do out there so we are packing a cooler and heading out. I'll get video there too! Jackson has been a busy bee since going to visit his dads. I miss him so much. Brittany is starting to get sad about going back to her dads in a few weeks. She excited about school and cheering but its always hard on both of us to say goodbye. Honestly, its has been better for us to split the kids up because they fight so much. When one is here and the other is with my ex husband.. both do so much better in school and also at home. But its hard. It breaks my heart to see her sad. I can't believe summer is half over for Brittany and Zane. Brittany starts school Aug 1 which is like 2 weeks early. That totally pisses me off because we live by the summers around here. Jackson starts later on August 19. So we will have some extra time with him before school starts but the other 2 will be in school for a couple weeks at that point. It would be nice if we could get all the kids on one schedule but I see that not happening for while. And don't forget we also have a trip to Louisiana to take Zane back too. Anyway.. we have a lot crammed into the next few weeks.. it should be interesting! 

Have a great day... I'll be back soon!

Confessional Friday!




I am linking up today with Blonde Ambition for Confessional Friday! Hope you enjoy!
I confess...

Todays Confessional Topic is Pet Peeves.. Here's my list.. in no particular order! 

The Coffee Pot
I make the coffee e-v-e-r-y night and I expect for there to be a cup of coffee for ME in the mornings. If you drink it all... MAKE MORE! 

Dogs
I would appreciate if you are going to have a dog ( like us ) that you don't just let it roam around unleashed. My yard is NOT your dogs bathroom. and most dogs scare me. Please keep your pets leashed or confined. 

Office Whores
Yep.. I said it. Ladies ( and guys ) if you know one of your co-workers is married or in a relationship...it would be nice if you could just step back. Stop with the boobs out.. heavy perfume.. and disgusting tactics on breaking up families. It didn't happen to my family but I watched it happen to over 3 couples when Scott was at a different dealership. It was mind blowing how twisted those girls got.

Friday Letters



Dear Jackson, Do you have any idea how much I miss you? I hope you are having a great time with your daddy but come home soon! Dear Scott, I know things are stressful but we will get settled here and everything will be better. It might help you if you just take a few minutes and look around the kitchen instead of bitching about not being able to find things! I love you and no matter what.. I am with you. Dear Hair, WTF? You are always a crazy mess with a mind of your own. I am not sure if I should darken you.. lighten you.. but it would be nice if you would stop producing so many grey hairs! Dear Brittany, Your so cute. I love you but I think you are growing up too fast and it scares me! I am really going to miss you when you go back to your dads. Dear Trina, we need to catch up soon! I think we need to make a date to talk on Sunday! Dear Romeo, I am sorry you are so sore. I promise you will feel better soon.. we just didn't need any more kittens. Dear Coffee, You are such an addiction for me. I seriously think I am going to do a cleanse which would mean NO COFFEE for a few days. What am I going to do without you? Dear Zane, I know that you have been homesick. Its ok to miss home...but remember we miss you! Its been great having you here with us. Dear CVS, I miss you.. we are going to have to get together soon! Dear New House, Your huge, bigger than what we actually need. We need to buy more furniture to fill you up. I hope we make a lot of great memories here. I know it might sound c-r-a-z-y but I am thinking of maybe looking for a house actually on the lake with a dock when the lease is up here next year.. its just a thought. I think it would be great to be on the water! Dear Paula Deen, I think what they are doing to you is nuts...as I said before it feels to me like a witch hunt. I truly believe you are not a raciest. Just ride out the storm.. you will be ok. Dear Mom, Thanks for listening to me rant the other night. You are always there for me.. and I love you so much. Thanks for being such a great mom.Dear HLN, you are so addicting. 90% of the time you are on in my house. Dear YMCA, I have really been enjoying you! Maybe you will help get me in shape again! Dear Friday, I am so happy you are here! I am ready for the weekend! Dear God, I trust your plan for me.. for my family. I just want you to keep us all safe. So many things happen in our world now.. I get scared for my kids and my family all the time. Please surround us with the white light of the holy spirit and keep us safe. I hope you don't mind finishing my thoughts/prayers when I fall asleep praying! Please continue to guide us down the right path.  Dear Readers/Viewers, you guys are awesome! I love your comments.. emails... tweets.. you guys are the best bloggy friends a girl could ask for!

Thursday Inspiration..

Afternoon friends! I hope you are enjoying this pretty summer day. Not much is going on around here yet. It's noon and Brittany and Zane are still sleeping. Those kids stay up later than I do. I could go wake them up but then I have to deal with grumpy kids all day...so I am just letting them sleep until they get out of the bed on their own. We were going to the pool early but I do have some things to do today. Speaking of the pool.. yesterday I was in the hot tub at the Y and then came out and did 2 LOOOOONG ASS LAPS in the lap pool which totally exhausted me. I was happy I did it.. and I think I will be exploring the Y even more in the coming weeks. I also think Scott and I will really enjoy it in the winter months. I wasn't sure what the real difference is between the suana  or steam room. Well, I understand one is steam and one is dry heat.. but I am going to have to figure out which I actually like because I have no idea. Yesterday I got lost coming back home which wasn't so fun. The damn navigation is messed up on my phone but Brittany's worked. I actually know what I did wrong. I turned one street early. And the funny thing was.. we just kept going around the circle..

Wednesday HodgePodge!

Happy Wednesday Friends! Time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from over at From This Side of the Pond . 

Hope you enjoy! 

Summertime is a season of reunions, weddings, and other family celebrations and gatherings...are any of the above on your calendar in the next two months?

Well my mom is hosting the last family reunion sometime in August but I am not going. I don't think mom was too happy about it either! But we will be making a lot of trips in August with the kids.. then we have school starting so I just don't think the family reunion 7 hours away is going to happen. But we do have a lot planned with the kids in July. Everything from the Waterpark, Zoo, Lake Lure, Pool.. etc. Just summer fun!

Welcome to Wednesday!



Hello friends! I hope you are getting a great start to this day. So first off.. thank you guys for the emails about husby and I. I should know by now that if I do a post saying we are not getting along and then nothing the rest of the day.. people sometimes wonder and worry. Husbands and wives argue sometimes. Monday night we seemed to bitch more than anything. Then we went to bed and woke up in better moods. We were fine yesterday! I just got so busy that I didn't have time to blog. We talked a lot and moved on pretty fast. Right now Scott and Jackson are heading to Tennessee to meet my ex husband. Jackson really wanted to go to his dads for a month this year. I am totally nervous about him being gone but its ok.. I know he really wants to go and I am thinking about him..not me. I am pretty protective over Jackson and I know I am going to worry the entire time but I just want him to have fun and be safe. 

Right now he's sleeping like a baby. ( picture from Scott ) and pretty close to the destination point! I didn't go because we have Zane and Brittany here. Plus I had an appointment that got rescheduled...so I think in a little while, we are going to the pool. Scott is heading back to work after he gets back for a few hours so why not! I am really wanting to use the lap pool and start a small work out. Then maybe I will graduate to some of the yoga classes and such. I don't have an Athletic bone in my body. None of my family does. But I think it will feel good to stretching my muscles out. Who knows if I will keep the membership or not in winter but we'll see! 

Yesterday was so busy for me. Brittany and I took off to Shelby to get prescriptions from the Dr. and check the house for the lost spices.. Husby kept saying.. there is no way we missed a box. No way.. Well look at the box that was on top of the frig.. 
↓↓↓↓↓↓↓


Yep.. it was on top of the frig and my cookie sheets were and pot were in the oven. Thank God I got that box because on the bottom is all my best spices that I use all the time. It would have cost a ton of money to try to replace them all.  The house is empty still and I am pretty sure if they don't sell it asap that it will go into foreclosure. I didn't feel a bit sad or anything being there. I was happy to get in and get out fast. But that trip took up about 4 hours of our day. Then I came home worked on laundry and getting Jackson packed 
up. In the evening Scott took them out for haircuts and then we had yummy steak fajitas and tacos for dinner. We ate really late due to Scott and the kids being out. I think it was 930 pm...see late! Then I had to finish getting Jackson's stuff and ready and by 11pm I had a screaming headache and just went to bed. I didn't even open the computer! So now hopefully you guys know that husby and I were not killing each other or anything. I was just super busy! I will reply to your emails later today but I thought a post would clear it all up! I probably shouldn't have said anything about Scott and myself bitching but I don't really hide things and I am honest when it comes to my marriage. We have good days and bad. I honestly hate those bloggers/facebook posters/ twitters/  who claim how happy and perfect there marriage is day after day. I consider my marriage a good marriage - MOST DAYS - but all couples have ups and downs. If your marriage or relationship doesn't.. then your a liar...plain and simple. So please know.. if I am not blogging, it doesn't mean something bad has happened. I was exhausted with a terrible headache and needed sleep! Plus it's summer which means less blogging anyway. I would love to be home.. on the couch or at my desk making videos and doing blog posts but that wouldn't make the kids too happy! But I do still blog so don't be too concerned! Most days I balance my time pretty well! 

Have a great Wednesday! 

xoxo

Tuesday.

(:
Hello and Happy Tuesday to you all! I hope you are having a great day. I am trying to get motivated but God knows.. I am just exhausted and just don't want to do anything. Yesterday wasn't the best day for  Scott and I. We both seemed to bitch more than anything. Not so fun for any of us so I just went to bed early. I think with everything going on, neither of us truly feel appreciated. Its just been a lot to get moved with the kids here.. get adjusted to a new city that we don't know.. and still have all the problems of every day life. Let's just say.. its been stressful to say the least. Hopefully tonight will be better. I always say that I have a real marriage. There are really good times and also there are times when its not so good. I don't really want to bash my husband.. being I know it's not all him. We both have our own issues but it's nothing that we can't work through but I really did want to ring his neck last night! I left last night to go get some sweet tea and frosties.. Brittany and Zane thought I ran away. Then they realized my favorite cat was still here so there was no way I wasn't coming back! Hahaha! I pretended my little trip to Wendys at 1am was a vacation but running away really isn't an option with a houseful of kids! Brittany pointed out that she will always find me.. and I know she would! Once I came home we had to have a talk about marriage...the kids hate it when we don't get along and they have questions if they here us arguing. So I explained that marriage is hard sometimes but that doesn't mean you give up. Honestly.. Scott feels over worked and under appreciated and I feel the very same way. He feels that way with his outside job and I feel that way with the kids and house. I think we need a vacation! :)

Weekend in Review!


Hi friends! I hope you are having a great start to the week. I know Monday's suck for most people but around here.. its summer! That means staying up late.. sleeping in without alarm clocks.. and having fun! Right now the kids are all still asleep and the house is quiet. I hate to admit it, but I am actually enjoying every minute! We didn't have a ton of plans this past weekend. We have been moving so we just wanted to take it as easy. Scott and I are both exhausted but the kids has energy that goes on and on and on and on! 

They had a water-balloon fight ( which I did video but haven't got up yet ) and then it was playtime with the hose.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday Friends! I hope you are having a wonderful start to the day. I am just waking up and trying to figure out what the plans are going to be. Yes I know its in the afternoon. I got up at 1030 and have been dozing on and off every since. We haven't been doing many summer activities with moving. Its still going to be a busy week for us. Scott is taking Jackson to his dads on Wednesday..I have an apt that day and can't go. Then Thursday Romeo gets fixed.. and hopefully this next weekend we will head off to a waterpark or zoo with Zane and Brittany and Zane.. Scott just got back from playing golf and is currently filling up water balloons on the back porch. It takes a long time to fill up enough balloons for 3 kids and then in less that 2 or 3 minutes its over. I do plan on doing a little more unpacking but I am almost to the point of saying - Screw It - if there are still unpacked boxes.. clearly that is not the stuff we use every day and it can wait! I am getting really burned out with this big move that I am ready to be done with it. Its been truly exhausting. I actually feel pretty grumpy today so I am going to have to wake up and get in a better mood! I am just having trouble waking up today. I think this big ass move has finally caught up with me. I'll be back soon with a video!

Hellooooo!

Good Morning! I am just waking up trying to figure out what the day is going to hold! Of course its going to be more unpacking.. but I am pretty close to being done. I mainly need to work on getting Jackson's room organized and cleaned today. He's done a pretty good job of unpacking his own stuff but I need to get in there and finish it up. He's leaving on Wednesday but will be back at the end of July. Zane will still be here for a few weeks so I still want to get it finished. Yesterday I worked on cleaning out the garage and husby's closet. It has been just a big job on this move. I don't know why it seems harder.. maybe its because we are older and both Scott and I tend to get tired pretty quick. I just want all of this over so we can start to enjoy the summer. We won't have long before we are heading to Louisiana to take Zane back and also to exchange Brittany and Jackson. Gosh.. School is going to start before long and its going to suck waking up to the alarm clock again...grrrrrrrrrrr!

Confessional Friday





I am linking up today with Blonde Ambition for Confessional Friday! Hope you enjoy! 
I confess...

* Moving has been hell. We have all worked our asses off to make it happen.  I feel bad that a lot of the beginning of summer was taken by this move. Its time to start having fun! 

* I don't really like the " neighborhood watch group " who don't park in their garages.. Instead the open the garage and sit out there all day watching what is going on. I feel weird pulling into our driveway with  3 sets of neighbors watching.. watching..watching. Ugh.

* My car is a total mess and I am going to have to beg my husband to get it cleaned up for me. 

* I am actually starting feel a little compassion for my ex husband because Brittany lives with him. She is a totally different beast than the boys and he might be able to control her better than I do. Why are girls harder?

* I haven't wore hardly any makeup in weeks. I just haven't cared because of the move. But I unpacked all my make up the other night and I got totally excited seeing it all again! 

* Husby did a good job with the house. Its really big and nice...but its going to be a lot to keep up with. 

* If one more kid slams a door around here, I seriously might start taking the doors down until they get the point. 

* I am pretty proud of myself for figuring out a lot of the handy man jobs around the house. I think I have been in the tool bag more than my husband...he works a lot and I never want to wait! 

* Break time is over..and I have to get up and get a brown sugar meat loaf in the oven and then I am sure that I will be back to unpacking something. So much to do!

Friday Letters



Dear New House, We are all still trying to get use to you. Every time I want to use the bathroom in my bedroom, I go for the closet because that was the direction of the old bathroom! I am hoping by this weekend to have a lot of the unpacking done so we can get back to enjoying life! Dear Jackson, I am really going to miss you while you are at your dads. I want you to go and have a good time but call often! Dear Scott, I hope your drive to work is easier now. Thanks for all you have done in this big ass move. I think we are getting to old for big moves like this! I love you.Dear Jodi Arias, You wearing those stripes in court yesterday was a sight. You didn't look so happy...you made this your fate when you killed Travis. Suck it up and deal with it. And don't forget.. one day you will have to answer to God too. I'd start praying and asking for forgiveness.  Dear Mom, Your packing was sooooo good! None of my teapots were broken! Thank you so much.I love you so much. Thanks for everything you do for us.  Dear New Bathtub, You are so much bigger than my old one. ( and that tub was big too! ) I kinda feel lonely every night in just a big bathtub.. guess I am going to have to get husby to join me more... but your jets feel so amazing on my tired back and feet! Dear Romeo, I am sure you are not going to like being fixed but when that happens you can be back around the girls! You are still the coolest cat in the house! Dear Brittany, You are growing up so fast. I just want you to embrace being a kid because life only gets harder. I love you very much. Dear Dad, Fathers day came and passed. Did you hear my prayers? I would have gave anything to have had you here. I know you know that I am ok but I really miss you. Come see me in my dreams. Dear Next Door Roosters, When I saw I was moving in next door to you, I seriously thought you would end up in a pot in my kitchen! But it looks like your crowing schedule is pretty good being you don't crow until afternoon. Thank you Jesus for late sleeping roosters! Ha! Dear Kim Kardashian Baby, I am so sorry your parents are fame whores who named you some silly name. It won't be any time at all before you are pushed in front of the cameras for the world to watch. Good luck little North West..life is about to get crazy for you. Dear Summer, You are being cut short this year. The kids have to go to school a couple of weeks early which is very disappointing. I think its ridiculous but whatever..guess we have a lot to do in a very short amount of time. Dear Zane, Thanks for trying to go to sleep earlier. I know its a change but 130am is late enough! Dear Self, Get your motivation back and finish unpacking...it will be over soon! Dear Readers, Thanks for stopping by... I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Unexpected Moments & Growing As A Couple {Link Up}

I am linking up with this  marriage series "From One Year To Beyond"! I had this post done yesterday but got busy unpacking and didn't get it posted! Opps! Hope you enjoy! 

TODAY'S TOPIC: WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM THE UNEXPECTED & HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A COUPLE?


Wow.. well I don't really like the unexpected. I am a planner and then things happen unexpected, my husband copes much better than I do! I look at the picture to the right and see a couple just starting out trying to figure out their lives together. Little did we know then that our lives together would take so many twist and turns through out the years. Honestly, I think the best way to deal with the unexpected is to try your best to roll with it as much as you can. We have had to move a lot due to Scott;s work.. which I honestly don't mind that much. The first couple of years we traveled together all over the US for his work and that experience alone was totally unexpected for me. He was use to living on the road.. me not so much. But I loved it and didn't want to stop. It was also unexpected for my mother who didn't like see me living in hotels. We came off the road, got married and blended our kids together. It was also kind unexpected that we didnt have a child together. We talked about it for a loooong time but we both feel like we are done with the baby stage. The youngest two are 10.. and they wear us out. But we both thought we would have one together. The kids are always unexpectedly surprising us ( good & bad ).. and they are always teaching us something!  Life happens rather we want it to or not. Scott and I have had hard times in our relationship that was totally unexpected at times but we held on and rode out the storm....together. And not all unexpected things are bad.. some are rather good and easy to adjust to while others just suck the life out of you! 

Our marriage is stronger than it ever has been and its probably because of all those unexpected things that challenged us to learn more.. work harder..open our hearts and minds more.. and above all compromise. I feel totally lucky with Scott because even though he does have a grumpy personality a lot of times, he has really been a wonderful man to me. Over the years we have figured out what works for us. It might not work for other couples but we are happy with our lives. Really all of life is about lessons. I think there is a lesson in almost everything. We have been together so long that now we can pretty much read each others minds. I'm not joking either. I love him so much and I think for the next phase of years...the middle years.. will be even better no matter what things pop up! I have also learned through all the unexpected times that its best to not worry. Half the shit we worry about.. never happens anyway. Think about how many times that has happened in your life. We worry when there is no need. Life will happen when its suppose to and its ALWAYS going to bring unexpected challenges along the way!

Thursday Inspiration..

Fotos de Enjoy the feelings
Morning friends! I hope you are getting a great start to your day. I slept great last night and woke up feeling good. Jackson slept in until about 10:15 and Brittany and Zane are still sleeping. Hopefully they wake up in good moods too! Not much is going on around here for us today except more unpacking. My goal is by Sunday night have most of our stuff unpacked and put up. Then things should get back to normal with the blog, youtube...everything. Yay!!!!!!! The kids are ready to have some fun. I still can't believe that we have already went through a month of summer already. Before I know it, Jackson is going to be heading back to school. I was looking to see what day Brittany goes back to school last night and realized that they go back on Aug 1...which is on a Thursday. Damn, you would have a least thought if they were going to start the first week of August which is a bit early anyway..they could have at least let them have the weekend and start that following Monday. I am huge on education.. but I do think Aug 1st is a bit early. I don't want Brittany or Zane to leave. ): Scott has been in a lot better mood here lately. I think the drive was killing him but now hes closer and getting more sleep.. which I think really helps. 

So have you heard about James Gandolfini? I don't know how you couldn't.. He died yesterday evening which was shocking as hell being he was only 51. He was our beloved Tony Soprano and he will be forever missed. 

James Gandolfini Dead; Sopranos Star Was 51

Its super sad and I am sure his family are in a lot of pain. I told my husband last night.. the longer we live, the more people we are going see die. It's just the way it is. Rest in Peace Mr. Gandolfini.

This Shit Sucks..

I know moving is a lot of fun sometimes.. New area, new friends, new home..but for us, this move has totally sucked. I have been unpacking for days and still have so much to do. I am lucky to have most of the kitchen done. I also have my bedroom, bathroom, and closet done. I just finished the closet a few minutes ago. I still have the kids rooms to unpack and I am trying to get husby to take care of his own clothes but that hasn't happened yet. Its starting to feel a little more like home but we still have a lot to do. The kids are tired of this and ready to have some summer fun which is totally understandable. Jackson heads to his dads in 7 days. So things are about to change again! I am really going to miss him but I know he's excited about seeing his father.

Today...


.@_awesome_pics_ | Cred to @when_u_need_it | Webstagram - the best Instagram viewer

Hello everyone! What a morning around here. Both kids Brittany & Jackson are in a mood today to say the least. I hate pranks.. have I said that before? I love my mom to death.. seriously she is one of my best friends but I could ring her neck for exposing the kids to the world of pranks. Last night, Brittany put glue in Jackson's belly button and this morning Brittany woke up with a ton of toothpaste in her hair.. and she was bitching like no other. So right now both kids are apart.. they had to listen to me bitch for 30 minutes straight and its coming to a point where I am going to take their stuff away for pranking. Plus I just got all the bedding washed and you know there is tooth paste all over it. Scott was like - They didn't use my $25 toothpaste did they? - How the hell am I suppose to know that? I wasn't trying to lick Brittany's hair to taste what kind of toothpaste it is. SIGH..Not the way I wanted to wake up for sure. And I am sure they all think I am the wicked witch of the west right now for my reaction to their morning crap. And to top it off...Brittany and Zane went to sleep after 3am and woke up early due to all this and you know they are going to be peaches today with not enough sleep. I seriously have to do something about their bedtimes soon. I know Brittany is allowed to stay up late at her dads and I know Zane is allowed up late at his moms. BUT...3am is pretty damn late for a 10 year old and an 11 year old. That needs to end soon. So you can see how the day started..Over all the kids have done great through the move. They have helped a lot and I have been so thankful for them. I hate getting on them in any way but enough with the pranking. I am all filled up with that bullshit. Scott is off work today but he's back at the old house right now getting the treadmill. He was going to leave it but I told him that my mom would die if I left it so he's bringing it here. Its works fine and we shouldn't just leave it. Then I think he is going to come home and go play golf with the kids. We got him a gift certificate for Fathers Day so he is ready to cash it in! And I think if he does go, he will be taking Brittany and Zane. Jackson doesn't want to go. I am going to be unpacking more and I have to run out today too so its probably going to be pretty busy for me. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! I'll be back later! 

xoxo

Waking Up....


Timeline fotografije
Sleeping in the new house still hasn't been easy for me. Idk.. but I have woke up pretty early every day since we have moved in. Today however, I was a little more lucky and slept until 11am. And straight to the coffee I went! You know I didn't loose the coffee pot box! It was unpacked first! But I was up at 7...8..and 10 due to the cats meowing. I am probably going to go fix Romeo and then at least he will shut up. So today I got up and made him an apt to be neutered on the 28th.  Yesterday Brittany and I  had to go get Willow from the Vet..And it was over a 2 hr ride one way. I was still using my old Vet which was close to an hour away from our old house but even further with the new house. It was a very long drive and I probably would have done anything to not drive that far yesterday but I didn't really have a choice.

Moving in Grocery Haul!!


Today I finally got to the store. Thankfully, here in our new town most of the stores are the same. I did throw out some old freezer items but I brought most of our food with us. Otherwise, restocking the kitchen would have been a lot harder! 

Hope you enjoy!
