I hope that you all have had a great year. For some it's one that they would rather not remember and for some they have enjoyed the year. I can say that for myself I am so happy to see 2009 go. Its been a year with a lot of up's and down's. I hope that 2010 is better for everyone.
The one good thing about 2009 is, I started blogging. It has forever change me for the good. I have met some true sweethearts. It has honestly made a difference in my life. Thank you to all of you that have made me laugh and made me smile! Thank you for your emails, cards and thoughtful comments. I look forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks again!
*~*~* HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010*~*~*

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Here is how my weekend played out. Saturday the NO Saint's played the Dallas Cowboys...which sucked ...they lost =(. The hubby and I decided to go out and grab a drink and a bite to eat and watch the game. Yeah, it started to suck when the Saints started losing... ha ha! Even the beer that we drank didn't help =)
So Sunday ...naturally I woke up with a KILLER headache. I forgot what it was like to have a hangover. I had so much to do though so I had to literally force myself to do all that had to be done. One of my best friends Stefanie and I went to a place here in town called Paint Pals and we painted and had sooo much fun. I will post those pics in a few days. Then I had to get things ready for the week..since I have to work all week..bummer!
So tonight I have been trying to relax and try to feel better. I haven't been feeling like myself lately.. I am hoping this begin to turn around. I really wish I could get rid of the thyroid issues they are becoming annoying..
So any ways I am sorry if I seem a little scattered or rambled so many thoughts flowing lol...Hope you all have a great week! I will be back to posting again!
If you are interested you can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.

-I wish my hair would get longer..faster!
-I wish for a little bundle of joy so very badly..maybe my time will come soon?
-I wish for my trip to New York would hurry up and get here!!!
-I wish that Alabama would win the National Championship and the Saint's could win the Super Bowl!

I have a few things to discuss. First off I am in search for some really good mascara. If you want to know a little piece about me ...I am addicted to mascara. I think I have tried them all at one point or another. I need something awesome again. So if you are anything like me and love mascara let me share the ones I have tried ( I will rate them 1-5, with 1 being worst and 5 being best).
Lancome Definicils- 1: The price is a little high and its just not that great, big let down.It makes you look like you only have 5 eyelashes!
Lancome Hypnose- 3: Is an ok mascara. Like if I was completely out I might use it.Again its a little pricey compared to some of the others.Gives some volume but no legnth..depends on what your looking for.
Cover Girl Lash Blast- 4: I liked this mascara, but its not as great as some others I have tried. I was told to get the waterproof. Its great for legnth, but not for volume. I wasn't real excited about the brush either. Short bristles?
Max Factor 2000 Calorie- 5: I love this mascara, but I think I am just looking for a change. I use it along with Maybelline Clossal Volume..good combination..
So basically I am looking for a mascara that does both legnth and volume. I have long eyelashes but I love to add to them!So if any of you have any suggestions..please share them!!
So I haven't even spoken about the Iron Bowl!! What is wrong with me? That's like of #1 importance!!! If your not from the south you will not understand and this will have no interest to you...but, ALABAMA won the Iron Bowl 2009!! ROLL TIDE! I am so excited! I had my houndstooth scarf and earrings and was loving the game...after the 2nd half!=) So we have gone undefeated this year.Which means again that we will have to play the Florida Gators. I am so ready for us to own Tim Tebow. I am so sick of hearing his name that, if I hear it again I will literally puke( as a matter of fact I think I just did). So this Saturday will be a VERY important day. I think I may need to take something for my nerves and blood pressure.I sure hope that we have our crap together!!! I am hoping we win a National Championship this year!
I am not sure if I have told you all of my love for Starbucks. I wish I had a VIP card and could just go anytime I wanted. I love my Venti Skinny Hazelnut Latte. Its one of my other obsessions...ha ha.
So, I am posting some things I simpily can't live with out..let me know some of your obsessions..
~Starbucks Venti Skinny Hazelnut Latte
~Mascara: I do not leave home with out it!
~Lipgloss: another MUST HAVE , cant leave without it either
~My sunglasses: it can be raining and I still love my sunglasses..retarted I know.
~My blackberry: no wonder they were given the name "crackberry", it fits!
~Sunsilk Mousse: I was blessed with curly hair, it has to be managed! =)
~My Tervis Tumbler- I love it!! If you do not have one you should seriously get one!
~My calendar: I am OCD I have it all written down.. if I mess up I CANNOT white anything out I have to get a new calendar. I know I know - I am weird!
~Last but not least: My blog! I have met so many sweet people and I continue to meet them!Wish I would have started this a long time ago! =)
So , Thanksgiving is over. I had a great one. We got to see a lot of friends we don't see that often and just relax. So I am back ladies! I will post again later tonight! Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!

I hope you all enjoy. I have been a bad blogger! I haven't blogged since Wednesday- thats uncalled for! Its just been a really busy week for me, but I am making time to blog! I have a lot planned for the weekend. My parents are having a Football party tomorrow night, Alabama will be playing Mississippi State! Then Sunday I think my mom and I are going to hang out, maybe go shopping. I need to get a new purse for New York! I love BIG purses, so I am getting something small to carry the bare essentials! I just am so excited about my trip! My mom called today to tell me that we were going to stay an extra night in NY! So as I am counting down the days I only have 122 days left!
Sorry I went off the deep end. I am hoping that the hubby and I are still going to be able to go to Dallas, Texas for Thanksgiving we are still thinking about it! Well I hope you all have a great night, I am sure I will not be blogging after the party! Ha!

I have so many things going on this week, I am not sure where to begin! I am hoping and praying about my school situation. My college tuition may be free! i will find out Thursday if I am going to have to pay or go at no charge. My mom has worked at this college for 25 years and employees children may go free. I am not sure if the rules will change, since I got marriend in May of last year.
I totally had a meltdown to my hubby this weekend. I took for granted that I had a free education.I know so many people who would do anything for a free college education and there I was not finishing and not taking it seriously. So now that I am older and wiser I am going to finish what I started. I know what I am going to have to do and I know the direction that I feel my life is taken.
I have been working in Cardiology for 4 years and I love it! I am going to get my RN and will work in Cardiac or the OR. So , Thursday is the day.... a very big day!I hope that everything will work out for me!
So I hope everyone had a great monday...I will chat with you all tomorrow!
Sunday, November 8, 2009
So Friday when I got home from work the hubby and I watched some of The Office! Yes, I absolutely love this show. Jim and Dwight are my favs!!If you haven't seen the show you show definitely check it out! Then Saturday was the Alabama vs. LSU game! In which we won, Roll Tide!I get so mad when I watch football,lol I am not sure why? Like I am better than Saban or something? lol. I just really think we have a weak QB and he is going to have to step up his game if we want any chance in beating Florida.Another is freaking Julio? Really you have missed how many passes? C'mon, you are an allstar, show us what you can do with all the talent that you have? Enough ranting about that, going to get the blood pressure up.
So after the game we went to a friends house to watch a MMA ( Mixed Martial Art), its kind of like UFC if you weren't sure what I was talking about. Then came home and crashed. So today I cleaned my house and time slipped away from me. I had all intentions of going to my friend Stefanie's to see her new house, but next thing I knew it was 7 and I still had to go to WalMart. So I am going next weekend to see it. So on my way home my friend Kassie ( who is pregnant) wanted me to stop by and talk about baby names. She is having a little girl, she is 5 mths along. Its kid of a bitter sweet topic. I love talking about babies, but it gets me down sometimes. I just want to be happy for her, because I would want her to do the same for me. So we chatted and came up with Ella Hope. Her hubby isn't too picky on the name so, us girls tried to come up with something unique. I stayed for a few and then came on home to get stuff ready for the week and to blog since I have neglected for a day or two...becoming a bad blogger!
So that is my weekend, not sure what next weekend has in store. I hope everyone has a great night and I shall write tomm!

I started following this one blog that really stood out to me. I would read her post and could just tell she had such a sweet personality. She is also a southern gal, like myself. After reading a little about her and some of her blog entries I thought that I should email and tell her thank you. Thank you for being optimistic and just being her! Her smiles just shine throughout her blog and as crazy as his my sound I felt like I could relate and that I had known her forever. She is truly a doll! So if you have time you should check out her blog ! http://bisforbrown.blogspot.com/
So it was very nice to meet you Summer!! I look forward to getting to know you and reading your blog!Keep your head up chicky, you and Mr.B are going to great parents and your little bundle of joy will be blessed to have a mommy like you!
P.S. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Roll Tide!

I have a younger sister, Savanna (who is 20 yrs old). She is a great sister... I wouldn't trade her in either! As we grew up we fought alot because of our age difference and we were both girls and she ALWAYS wanted what I had because I was older! I never had anything , because she always took my things! I still love her though! Love ya Sav!
And last but not least my Dad. Wow, growing up this man was very difficult to live with....wanna know why? Because we are soooo much alike ! I love him so much though! Now that I am married and no longer live at home we are so much closer. Love Ya Dad!
Now my "Typical Tuesday".. so Tuesday's always seem to be kind of hectic at work. The time change has been screwing me up so bad... I am not liking it at all! today seemed to be off to a good start, until the day started dragging along. I felt like I heard my name literally 97 times. I thought , ya know maybe if I act like I don't hear them, they will go away? I have days where I feel like that. Like, I want to grab my purse and go to the social security place and do a complete name change! Well today was that day! Every little thing seemed to get on my nerves. I try to wrap my mind around how my patients think and I just don't get it?
These people come to the doctor, obviously to be seen and TREATED...so why in God's name do you not come prepared? I mean how can you take a medication that you dont know the name, why your taking it or who gave it to you? Really, you just take whats in the medication bottle and its just over after that?
I guess the part that bothers me even more is when they reply" I take one white round pill, 2 blue pills and a brown one"? Ok, yeah I know what you are taking....NOT!!!!
I am a really sweet person and it takes a lot to upset me or make me mad. Therefore, I try so kindly to tell them. You really need to know what you take. If you cannot remember they have paper and pens...WRITE IT DOWN.
Wow, I went off on that one ...sorry. Now that I am trying to bring my blood pressure back down..Ha Ha! I hope everyone had a great day..they week is almost over! YAH! I am soooo ready for the weekend! The Alabama Crimson Tide will be playing LSU this weekend....Great game!! I am hoping that my man...Mr.Nick Saban has his plan ready ...Roll Tide!!
Monday, November 2, 2009
So, thank you Belle on Heels for the idea of posting what you are thankful for. I am going to follo along in your footsteps.
Day 1: I am thankful for.....
My friends. To all who read this thank you. Thank you for a wonderful friendship. I would not be the person I am today if some of these special people had not entered my life. I could write a list of everyone I am thankful for, but I am afraid I may leave someone out. So just know I appreciate all of you girls who have been wonderful friends... I <3 you all!
Thank you to all of my blogger friends too! =)

Then we decided to go to Target. I found the E.L.F stuff I have previously posted about. They had so many cute sets. So I got the lip gloss set and the eye set. I am loving the lip gloss, but honestly the mascara sucks. Then we came home and just chilled out and watched the newest episode of The Office( THE BEST SHOW EVER).
So today we had plans to go to this fruits and vegetable market, little did we know they were closed on Sunday =(. So on the way home we stopped at this store that I haven't been in for some time. Al's 5 and 10. They had so much Alabama stuff!! I found this really cute pair of hounds tooth earrings! They are adorable! Then we decided to come back home and hang out. Our friends invited us to watch a movie with them so we rode over to their place and hung out for a few.
So the weekend is at a close...again. So until tomorrow.. good night all!

This is going to be so much fun! My sister has never flown before so this will be an experience for her! I love to fly! So if anyone knows of some things you must do in New York post me a comment!

1. E.L.F 5 piece professional brush set( which I LOVE)
I only paid like $5 for all of them and they are soooo soft!
2. Lancome Absolu Foundation( its the best)
I am trying this for the first time. I love the way it feels and has great coverage.
3. Lancome Mauicomplet Concealer(miracle in a tube!!)
i have been looking for this stuff all my life! I wish I would have knew about this long before now. I have a few red splotches on my face and this stuff makes it disappear!!!
4. Lancome Photogenic Loose Powder(and I got a free gift)
This powder is amazing. My mom was telling me about it. She uses it and it has somewhat of a shimmer to it. I like it a lot too!
5. Palmer's Cocoa Butter Body Oil
This is actually a very good make up remover its good for dry skin. You use it to remove your make up and mascara and then you use you face wash. I love it!!
6. LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara
So one of the blogs that I follow, Kelli, talks about this mascara a lot. Mascara is my favorite thing out of make up. She swears by it , so I tried it and now I am hooked!!!Its the best mascara ever!
7.Rimmel Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
This is really good for stubborn "water-proof" mascara and it doesn't burn your eyes. I use it to try to get all of my mascara that the oil doesn't get.
So I am going to love playing with all of my new things! I am so excited about them all!!I also got a free gift with my make up. I haven't had a chance to play with it all yet so I will have to update you on my other "goodies".
Tomorrow I will post pictures of my new Alabama blanket that I made. I <3 class="blsp-spelling-error" id="SPELLING_ERROR_8">soooo cute! They are so easy to make too!
Well I hope that everyone else had a great weekend!!

This is one of my all time favorite treats. I love this place!! My favorite is the Angel Food. My husband and I make smoothies for dinner. I always wanted to know exactly how they made it because its light and refreshing.
I surfed around and found the recipe and will share it with you. I hope you enjoy !
Angel Food Recipe (20oz):
4 oz strawberries
1 small or medium sized banana
1/8 cup of Turbinado (raw sugar) aka hawaiian sugar. you can substitute with Splenda or Equal for lower calories
1/8 cup powdered milk
1/2 tsp. soy protein (available for retail at SK)
1-2 drop of Vanilla extract
about 1 & 1/2 cup of ice
and add water as desired for smoothness
Don't add water or less strawberries for thickness
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
I am enjoying it so far. I haven't found one thing that the do not have listed in their food database. So if you are attempting on loosing weight or managing your current weight, you should check it out!!!

To some this may be a stupid post. A post about a pen? Well, this isn't just any pen. It's the G2 by Pilot. I absolutely LOVE this pen. I have several in my purse, because it's the only pen I like to use.
They come in a 2 pack and you can get them almost anywhere. I always grab a pack when I go to WalMart ( I would hate to not have an extra).
It may sound really silly, but since I have to write a lot I wanted to find a pen that I love. Thanks to my friend and co-worker Stefanie, I am now hooked on this pen.
So if any one has to write a lot like I do, you should check it out( sure you will <3 it!) By the way they come in "bold" and "fine". Fine is the best , bold puts out a little to much ink.
Hope that you enjoy my silly "pen post"
