Ok, so I get so excited when I find a new blog....and this new blog is right up my alley!! I mean, Carrie obsessed, broken engagement (for a completely different reason than mine), fake hair, the poof, makeup, I could go on and on. Let me introduce you all to Allison aka Pink LouLou. I've tried to put her blog header picture on here, because it is SUPER CUTE but I can't get it to work! Annoying!! But, you all have to check her out....just to see the picture of her with Carrie if not for any other reason!
Just because I love her!!
Oh......we were at the same Carrie Underwood concert last December!! She didn't care much for Evansville, but I won't hold that against her!!
Me giving up junk food is about as crazy as me dressing up as a piece of candy corn along with a tutu for Halloween!
Oh wait....I am dressing up as a piece of candy corn for Halloween!!! I guess I can give up junk food too, well at least for 21 days!
I saw this on Jessica's blog today and told her I would do it with her! She also has some great tables/pictures that say things to eat with certain cravings. So it's just for 21 days so I can do that!! Yes, I realize there are Halloween parties this weekend, I'm not sure if she is wanting to start tomorrow or what but I'm gonna try! Ok, somebody, hold me accountable!!
Woke up pretty sore from going to body pump the evening before. I was glad I got to go though, I'm trying to make an effort to get back to the classes at the gym. If I'm not working, I'm going to those classes!! I asked a couple of friends if they wanted to meet for lunch but nobody was able to meet me. I got sushi take-out and went home to eat it. I went to do some shopping but didn't find anything I was looking for! Worked all night.
I fell asleep at a stop light on the way home, just for a second and I woke up before somebody had to honk at me. I slept all day, finally got up around 4. I was getting ready and got called for standby. I took it of course, because I can't say no. I ended up being on standby all night. I got to watch the Cardinals game....got to watch them WIN!!
I woke up because I had a bad dream about wrecking my car, scary. I went ahead and got up. I cleaned up my bedroom. I had seen some things on Pinterest I wanted to try so I headed to goodwill to see if I could find some things that would work. Of course, I didn't but all well. I drove by Maurices and saw that they were having a sale so I decided to go in. I got 3 shirts and a necklace for less than $50!! I needed some fall shirts so I was happy I went in.
I just got on Polyvore.com for the first time tonight and put this together. I actually wore my own version of this today. Now it's back to watching this sad 4th game of the World Series. Hopefully the Cards can pull it off in the next 2 games!
We have a mentorship program at work and have meetings/parties every month or two and this one was a Halloween party. Dressing up was required!! I was so excited when I asked these girls if they wanted to do this and they said yes!! We won Best Costume!!! (that's the little gold figure in my hand, it's a headless skeleton trophy!)
I worked all day at the restaurant then met my parents at the campsite. My parents, sisters and nieces were coming over to my neck of the woods to camp this weekend. I got there around 5 and camp was all set up. My older sister and her girls got there a little after me. We hung out for a little bit and then got started on dinner.

Michelle and I got up around 7 because we were freezing!! The fire couldn't get started soon enough!! We had breakfast, showered and waited for Lindsay to get there. While we were waiting, we went around and picked up sticks and wood that was around our campsite for the fire. Michelle and mom found these logs and were acting like they were strong!
Then we went on a hike. Lindsay, Kelsey & Maddie on a trail posing
Gerry wanted to pose too
Michelle, Mom & Gerry were behind me

I was behind Linds
They're so funny!
Family picture Saturday night before we ate supper
And now a funny family picture
We had so much fun!! We sat around the fire, played catch phrase and ate way too much!!! Chad came out for a little bit that night to hang out with us too.
We got up, ate breakfast, packed up and headed home. I was so happy to see my couch!! I did all my laundry and took a nice long nap before work that night. I got to be on standby until about 4:00 Monday morning. I just worked for like 2 hours then ran some errands and went back home to sleep before going to work that night.
Everytime I work the weekend, I never know what to do with my Friday during the day. I used to spend every other Friday shopping with my BFF Niki. She is now a full time working mom since both her boys are now in school. I miss those Fridays. Anyway, I worked that night but got to leave early because of low census.
When I got up I texted Deana to see if I could still go to the game with her since I got off work early and was able to sleep. The game was at 2 and in Carbondale so I would just go to work after the game.
Elly & I at the ballgame
The salukis lost, I was not their good luck charm. After the game, we went to a pizza place called Quatros. It was so good!! I worked the rest of the night and it was a good night. We have a mentorship program at work and this month we have a Halloween party and 3 of us decided what we were gonna be. We are so excited about it! Not very original, but definitely going to be cute!!
I spent the day on the couch for the most part watching my new TV!! I'm still very excited about it. I also did some laundry, went grocery shopping and got a spray tan. Rather boring, next weekend is going to be a lot of fun!! So looking forward to it!!
Ok, I know I have been a total slacker when it comes to blogging....woops! I didn't even get to finish the blog challenge. Working 2 jobs and going out of town this past weekend meant no time for blogging!! Of course, I still found time to read all of them!!
I came home from work and slept all day then got ready for my 2 job. We had an awesome night at the restaurant which in turn means a lot of money in my pocket!! I came home and watched some tv then decided to run and get groceries. It gets more and more expensive every time I go! I keep telling myself that I'm buying healthy things and not junk so that's why.
I got up, packed my bags then headed off to Tennessee for my friend Tonya's wedding. I made a little pitstop in Paducah to go to TJMaxx & Chick-fil-a! YUM!! Then once I got back on my way I thought I only had a little over an hour to go. WRONG! My GPS and directions I printed off were not correct! Thank goodness my sister had the right directions and they were already there so I just talked to her till I found it through her directions.
The wedding was on a golf course down a very big hill so golf carts were necessary!

The wedding and reception was outside and it got rather chilly that night...Madelyn stayed warm! We left the reception and all went back to our hotel to hang out. It was so fun to just hang out and get to talk. I love those girls so much!!
We all got up and ate breakfast at the restaurant at the hotel. Everybody went their separate ways to head home. Becca, Todd & I were all going to drive through Murray to visit our Alma Mater. We were a little disappointed that the bookstore was closed because of fall break. We decided to walk around campus.
Murray has a "shoe tree" on the quad. If a couple meets on campus while attending the university and they get married you take one of his shoes and one of hers and nail them on the tree. There are some old shoes on that tree!! The pink flip flop and the black one behind belong to my friends!!

Todd and the girls
They are too funny!!
I finally made it home and made the mistake of doing laundry instead of sleeping before I had to go into work that night. I definitely paid for it that night!!
I am a thirty something registered nurse, daughter, sister, aunt and friend who loves to have fun!!! I love to spend time with family and friends doing pretty much anything, love to eat good food, read, blog, sing, and so on! Carrie Underwood obsessed, lover of One Tree Hill, iPhone addicted, the list could go on and on!! I am a firm believer in everything happening for a reason and in its own time, I just need more patience!!
