Weekend Wrap-Up


I'm so tired of not being able to sleep in on my days off.  I mean I did sleep till 8 so I guess that is sleeping in when my alarm goes off at 4:40 on the days I have to work!!  Anyway, I watched a little TV then turned on the itunes and went to cleaning.  I will be so happy when I have floors that actually look clean after they're cleaned.  I have this rust colored tile in my bathroom and it never looks clean, so annoying!!  One of these days, one of these days.  Niki called on her way into town and so I met up with her after lunch to do a little grocery shopping.  I bought healthy stuff too because that bridesmaid dress isn't gonna look good on this body I'm sportin' right now!!  Gotta get serious!!  So I came home and took a nap!!  Geez, I'll eventually get my butt back in the gym.  I woke up and got some things together to go to Niki's house.  We played rummikub and it was so fun!!  I'm pretty sure Michael even liked it!!  We played around with my new camera as well, although the pictures aren't so hot!!  HAHA!!  Take a look...

This one is good!!!

Church then ran to Kroger to get a few things I forgot yesterday.  That's what I get for not making a list!!  The weather said it was going to be cloudy and 70 with storms.....well I don't like that, if it's going to be 70 then it should be sunny!!  The drab weather today just made me want to lay on the couch and be lazy....not good.  Although I did do that, I also got my laundry done, put dishes away, made some food and straightened up a bit.  I also had to try to figure out what to wear to the shower next weekend.  I can't believe that it's already going to be next weekend!!  So looking forward to it and getting to see everybody!!  And I'd like to think this weekend ended pretty fabulously!!!!  YAY!!!

These are a few of my favorite things....

Anybody else singing the song??

Cottage cheese doubles!!  Such a great invention!!
My favorite cereal right now!  I could eat cereal for every meal!

This dressing is so good!!  My new favorite salad is good lettuce (no leaves), tuna and this dressing!!!  YUM!!

 I should just stop buying these mixes because I can't just eat one!!  I end up eating all 6!!
I love love love cheese!!!  This cheese makes me feel a little less guilty about eating it all the time!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up


Got up, got ready, got packed then headed to meet some people to go to Evansville to see Lo Cash Cowboys.  We got to the hotel and got ready then went to a place called Stoney's for dinner and then the band was playing there later that night.  We had so much fun!!  The band didn't start till 10 so the place had a dance floor and they had a couple teaching "line dances" so of course I got out there to learn!!  I hadn't line danced since grade school but it was so much fun.  Us girls got out there and danced practically the whole time!!  The band finally started and the place was packed.  It was the first sold out show for Lo Cash!! 
After the show, they did a meet and greet and I got this picture!  That's Preston & Chris!  They signed my ticket and my CD!!  I was pretty excited!!  Oh, and how cute are they??  So much fun!!
The guys didn't feel so hot after the night they had but the girls felt great!!  We headed back to IL and then I headed home.  I went to Deana's to hang out with she and Elly and to play with my new camera.  I took a few pictures but still have some practicing to do.  It was a great weekend!!

I've got one more weekend before Lindsay's shower and just a couple more things on my list to do!!  The wedding will be here before we know it!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

Ok, I gotta start before Friday because I was off all week.  I made plans to go to Niki's house on Wednesday to help her set up her blog, to do some laundry and I had a nail appointment.  It was starting to snow (just a dusting they said) but the roads were fine at this point....didn't last long though.  Pretty soon they called off school and the roads were getting bad.  My nail appointment was postponed and I was snowed in because my mustang doesn't like slick roads!  Thankfully I have great friends!!  Niki and I decided to work out so we did a video called "Tank Top Arms" then did  Zumba.  It was so fun and hard.  I could tell I was going to be sore!!  So now on to Thursday, nail appointment rescheduled and the roads were clear for the most part.  It also happened to be the 1st day you could buy the iPhone in the store at Verizon and I also got my tax refund!!  YAY!!!!  I was actually really surprised that I was able to walk into Verizon and walk out with my new iPhone 4!!!  Love it!!!  Then I went to Maurices and got a really cute shirt and vest.  That night I went to the movies and saw No Strings funny and really not a girly chick flick till the very end. 
Ok, so I knew today was going to be rather busy and it was!  I met Niki in Carbondale for grocery shopping day.  I had to leave in the middle for a Dr.'s appointment then met Niki at O'Charley's for lunch then to Wal-Mart and then Maurices.  I really needed to wash my car but didn't find the time to do it.  OH, I went to Target too and this is the greatest deal ever!!  I was going to go to Best Buy to buy me new camera but I didn't have time so I was gonna check out Target.  I knew they had the camera but I wasn't sure if it was on sale, well yes it was!  I go to the counter and tell the boy that I want to buy that camera, he says they are out but he can sell me the display for 10% off.  I check it out and decide that I'll take it.  He then starts to look for the box and all the stuff for the camera and can't find it.  He ends up asking his manager if he can use another box and parts to another Canon camera that works with mine and she says yes.  He also asks her if he can give me more off of the price since I won't actually get a box, she says how much and he says 25% off?  She says yeah!!  So, I end up saving over $125 on this camera all because they couldn't find the box!!  I L-O-V-E Target!!  I finally get home and put away groceries and everything else.  My friend Brooke calls and ask if I want to hang out tonight...of course I do!  We end up going to Mackies to eat pizza and then head to Wal-Mart to do her shopping.  It was a fun girls day and night!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I worked today, came home and crashed!

I woke up to more snow, could've done without it.  I spent most of the day at home and then went to Wal-Mart to pick up pictures and they were completely wrong...I cried to the lady at the counter and she told me I could go to customer service and get I did.  I went home and fixed it on picasa and sent them to Walgreens this time and went a couple of hours later and picked them up.  They were perfect!!  So excited!!  I'll post it once they all go out and everybody recieves them. 

I went to church this morning.  I got the phone call this past week from my church asking me where I had been because they hadn't seen me or seen my name on the attendance book.  Since my work schedule has changed I'm not able to go every Sunday.  I want to tell them that so they don't think I'm just skipping out!  After that I came home to make my yummy food to take to a superbowl party.  I made meatballs, buffalo chicken dip and gooey butter cake.  After the game started and we were all settled in and watching the game I let Dawson have my camera to take pictures.....the collage below gives you an idea of how great he is as a photographer!!
I love that he can hold the camera out and take self portraits of us!!  Love him!!

5 on Friday

I'm off for the weekend!

Since the Colts aren't playing in the superbowl I will be rooting for the Packers but of course wearing my Peyton Manning colts shirt!

The gym has been calling my name for weeks and I have been pretty much completely ignoring it....that has got to change!

Bridal shower invites for Lindsay's shower are in and I'm getting them tomorrow!!

So excited I can upgrade and get the iphone!!  Although, everybody is saying they are waiting for the 5 because it's supposed to come out this summer, I'm not sure if I can wait!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm coffee and muffins this morning for breakfast.
I'm loving...that it has snowed all day but no accumulation.
I'm & spicy cheez-its!
I'm loving...that the groundhog did not see his shadow.
I'm loving...that I can watch The Proposal as often as I want because I finally found it at Target the other day.  It has been sold out at Walmart & Target for a while.
I'm loving...that Brooke & Julian got married last night on One Tree Hill.  Not so much loving that I'm gonna have to wait a few days before I can watch it on the internet :(
I'm loving...that I'm off this weekend for the superbowl and get to hang out with friends and eat wonderful junk food.  Even though the Colts aren't in it this year, I will still be sporting my shirt!
