Monday Madness

So, today ended the 5 day weekend I had. I was very bummed. It went by waaay to fast, as always. I had so much to post this morning, but was pressed for time so I made it short and sweet. Just to let you all know, that I didn't fall of of the earth! Ha =)

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! =)

xoxo bre

I'm Back, for good...

I feel like I should be in really big trouble , because of my time away! It has been crazy in my world in the last 2 weeks, back to normal.. I hope. My husband and I went and "house sat" for my parents while they were away for the Thanksgiving holidays, this is my first Thanksgiving without them here =(. We enjoyed staying and keeping my younger sister and the dog and cat company. Its just hard being out of your comfort zone. I like having all of "my stuff" and of course the hubby is preaching of how I do not need to take all that I own, it never fails I always need something I DON'T HAVE! Imagine that! Not to go off on a tangent, but I have learned a big lesson.#1 Start packing waaaayyy before they do, we girls need a little time to prepare. #2 Never take them shopping anywhere, not even target, it was a dreadful experience.#3Do not waste your time telling them about a sale! =) I just thought I would share these if any of you didn't already know.

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!

The Recipe Edition

So all day today I wanted to leave work and go to WalMart and buy everything thing on the "bakery" isle. I want to bake this weekend! So I am going through some of my favorite recipes and thought I would share one everyday with my blog friends. I hope you enjoy...these recipes are "southern"!

Classic Pound Cake ( MY FAV)

1 lb. All Purpose Flour (3 1/4 cups)
1 tablespoon Coarse Salt
4 sticks of Unsalted butter
2 cups of Sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
9 large eggs

Preheat oven to 325. Butter two 5X9 loaf pans. Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cream butter and sugar with a mixer on high until pale and fluffy, for 8 mins. Scrape sides of bowl and reduce speed to Medium. Add vanilla extract. Lightly beat 9 ROOM TEMPERATURE EGGS, add in 4 additions, mixing thoroughly after each and scrape down sides. Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture in four additions, mixing until incorporated. Divide batter between pans.Bake for 65 mins. Let cool on wire rack for 30 min.

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!

Monday Madness

So this morning was nuts! I wake up and I hear this on the news and radio about school closings, business closing and I think really? Its November, did someone not get the memo ...a hurricane/tropical storm? Its kinda funny because I can not ever in my lifetime reamember a hurricane happeneing in Novemeber. So today at work of course was totally chaotic,but it made the day go by so much faster!

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!

Why do weekends go by soooo fast?

Really the weekend is already gone, are you serious?I feel like I just got home from work?Well there is no need to sit and pout that I think that weekends go by too fast, nothing I can do to change it. So, he is the weekend in review...

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!

My New Blogger Friend..

I just want to start by saying - I love blogging. I have had so much fun reading peoples postings and meeting some really sweet people. I wish I had started blogging way before now =).

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 !

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!

Day 2: I Am Thanful for../Typical Tuesday =)

So my day 2 "Thankful for" is my family. I have the best family that anyone could ask for! I couldn't have picked a better mother if I had hand picked her myself. She has always been so good to me and for that I am very grateful. She is such an awesome friend too!I love her more than she will ever know! Thank You Mom for being the best!

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 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!!

Day 1 : I am thankful for....

I found a really cute blog that I just love to read, it's . I go each and every day to check it out. I haven't met her, but she seems like a sweet girl. Today I logged on to make a post and she is posting about what she is thankful for. Her day 1 thankful , is for her friends. I totally agree with her. I have had a lot of friends through out the years and some who were not good friends and some that I still cherish. I have gained more friends over time and some who I will never forget. You have those friends in life, who make such an impact that you just can't forget them!

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! =)

The Relaxing Weekend

So the weekend went by way too fast..they all do. My weekend was a rather relaxed one. I had a migraine most of the day Saturday =(. We didn't have a game to watch this weekend , Alabama had their off week.... in which they needed. So the hubby and I went Saturday night and went to Kohl's and Target. I love both of those stores!! I bought these gloves at Kohl's (no, it doesn't get cold enough to wear gloves in Alabama) that are so soft and comfy. I got them mainly for my trip to New York. They were on sale for $5. I am on the search for a cream colored pea coat. I want one soo bad!

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!
