Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
one I'm still mostly eating soft foods.  My top teeth are much better than my bottom teeth, they feel so weird!
two I leave for the beach in -- weeks (I'm not sure of the countdown like my mom) and I am N.O.T. bathing suit ready!  I'm trying but then I fall off the wagon again!
three I bought a new pair of capri pants tonight.  I almost didn't because they weren't on sale but I knew if I waited they would be gone!  To my surprise, they were on sale!!  My total was much less than what I was expecting!!  SCORE!
four I'm so excited for "The Hunger Games" movie to come out March 23rd!!  I need to finish the book first.
five This warm weather makes me so happy!
six I gave myself a pedicure tonight, not nearly as pretty as the salon, but way nicer on my wallet!
seven I ordered some things from VS website the other day....they came in and I want to order more.  I checked and they didn't have any other ones available :(
eight I am so ready to turn the heat off and open the windows.
nine Cold feet are so annoying to me.
ten I'm thinking I'm gonna need to go see "Titanic" in 3D when it comes out.

Weekend Wrap-Up

I spent most of the day sleeping and blogging.  And trying to figure out what I could eat without having to chew it....I ate oatmeal.  On the way to work, I stopped by Sonic and got a route 44 vanilla diet coke and it was so good!  I hadn't had one in a long time!  Then, for dinner I ate mashed potatoes.  As you can see, my day is revolving around food right now, pretty much soft food. 

Slept all day then went to work but not before stopping at Sonic again to get another vanilla diet coke!

I slept off and on all day.  I got up and took my lazy butt to the gym.  I ran 2.25 miles!!  YAY me!! 
After that got some groceries then went by Target.  Love me some Target!  I wanted to get home in time to see the Oscars.  The only movie I had actually watched was "The Help" but I love seeing what everybody wears!  I know, I'm such a girl.  After seeing that it was pretty much a sweep by "The Artist" I think I should see it.  Although it seems like I usually don't like the movies that actually win all the awards.
On a different note, I didn't have to take motrin all day, so hopefully it's going to start being easier.  I guess only time will tell.  Hope everybody has a great week!!  The weather is going to be really pretty!!  I'm definitely looking forward to next from both jobs (hopefully, I'm on-call friday night)!!

Confessional Friday

I'm sad I'm not going to Blissdom this weekend, maybe next year.

Really excited Carrie has twitter!!  @carrieunderwood

A couple of weeks ago I posted that I was doing something for myself that I had been wanting to do for a while.  Well, I did it yesterday!!  I got braces!!!  I had my consultation yesterday and when we were talking about when to start them the lady said she had an opening in about 15 minutes.  I thought about it for a minute and then decided to just do it!!  Why wait any longer, right??  So far I've been ok as long as I have motrin to take.  I'm looking at it as a good weight loss plan, they don't hurt unless I chew, so it looks like I will be drinking my meals and eating things like oatmeal and yogurt.

I'm loving the show "Once Upon a Time"....thank goodness for HuluPlus or I would be so lost!

I have to work this weekend, hoping it's a good one

It was 72 degrees yesterday and I wore my bright yellow scarf, today it's 42 degrees and I'm thinking about wearing my snow boots just so my feet will be warm!  I'm freezing!!

Good Girl

The second I wrote that title I thought "maybe I should pick a different one" but hey, that's the name of the song!!  It also made me think of a post written by Sarah but for the life of me, I can't find it!!!

Anyway, look what my favorite girl ever is putting out tomorrow!!!!  Here's a little sneak peak!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I spent the day working at the restaurant and had a fabulous day!!  The weather was beautiful and we were so busy....busy is good in the life of a waitress!!  Busy is a little bit different in the life of a labor and delivery nurse!!  I had plans that night to meet Chad & Janelle for dinner at 7 and was rushing to get out of there to meet them on time.  I was only a few minutes late.  We ended up eating at Applebee's again, luckily we didn't have the same waiter!!  We ate lots of good food that was very bad for us and talked the entire time!!  We had a lot of fun.  Chad hadn't gone to sleep yet from working the night before so he went home after we ate.  Janelle's sister and her family came in to town to surpise them and she wanted to get home to hang out with them.  She also had to be at work at 7 in the morning.  I on the other hand was not ready to go home even though I had to be at work at 6 the next morning!!  I met up with my friend Abby from work at a little bar close to our houses.  We were just hanging out at the bar talking and singing along to the music, maybe dancing a little bit in our thing we know drinks are put in front of us and the bartender tells us "the tall guy on the end bought them for you".  We turned to look but no idea which "tall guy" it was!  We enjoyed our drink and tall guy came to talk to us....we were definitely not interested in this long haired, leather jacket wearing, drunk, tall guy!  We said thank you and continued with our own conversation!!  We ended up calling it a night not to long after that!

I realized about 2 o'clock in the morning that red bull must have been in the drink the night before.  I went to sleep right when I got home because I knew I had to be at work at 6.  I was awake at 2 but was able to go back to sleep but was up again at 3:15 and I was still awake at 4:30 when my alarm went off!  Not being able to sleep when I am tired, I believe, is the worst thing ever!!  I made it through work just fine and even did a little shopping after.  I got 2 new pair of scrubs which I have been needing for a while.  I then went to Maurices because they had some jeans on sale.  Of course, every pair I tried on I didn't like!  I actually didn't find anything!!  I went home and laid down for a while so I would be able to stay awake for the movie!! 
Some girls from work had been  talking about having a movie night and watching Breaking Dawn and that's what we were doing tonight!!  I woke up around 5 knowing we were all supposed to be meeting at Abby's at 6!  I texted her to see if I could bring something and I decided I would bring puppy chow because I had all the stuff here to make it.  Well, I thought I did....I didn't have enought peanut butter so I just decided to cut the recipe in half.  I then realized that I still had some reeses peanut butter cups from making Christmas cookies so I melted some of those down too with the chocolate peanut butter mixture already melting.  Let me tell you, I'm pretty sure this was the best puppy chow ever!!!  Anyway, one of the girls ended up not being able to come so it was just 3 of us (with enough food for 12) so we went ahead and started the movie.  We were such girls and had so much fun!!  After the movie was over we talked about it for a while and then lots of other stuff and before we knew it, it was 12:30 and we were all in need of a bed!!  We will definitely be doing that again!!

I set my alarm so I could decide if I was going to go to Paducah or not.  I was scheduled to work tonight so I wasn't sure if I was going to go or not, well I decided to go anyway and I'm so glad I did!!!  My friend Danielle was going also and we got there about the same time.  Madelyn greeted me at the door followed by her beautiful momma and new baby brother Miles.  Of course, I didn't come empty handed so I gave Madelyn my little gift bag so she could see what I brought her (the cutest little owl sock hat I got at Target...on clearance of course) and she loved it!!  I also got Miles something too but it's practical and he doesn't really care about presents yet.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on that baby and took him straight from Lacy.  I didn't realized Danielle hadn't even gotten to hold him yet!  Woops...I'm sort of a baby hog....ask anybody and they would say a MAJOR baby hog! Well, we passed the baby back and forth and talked a lot of wedding talk.  Danielle had to fill me in on all the details she's working on for her October wedding.  So exciting!!  We ate a wonderful lunch of salad, lasagna and peanut butter pie and then there was more baby holding!!   After he ate, we laid him on the couch so he could stretch I got my camera out to take some pics!

Love's like he wants to tell me HI!
It was a short trip but I'm so glad I decided to go.  I ended up getting standby but they forgot to call me.  I left early because I wanted to make sure I got home in plenty of time to get my things ready for work.  They called me about 15 minutes from home to tell me that I had standby but they forgot to tell me...I could have stayed longer and visited.  All well, guess that just means I will have to go again soon!!  I came home and changed my clothes and went straight to the gym, I knew if I sat down I wouldn't go.  I'm so glad I did!  I did 2.25 miles!!  After that, I ran to walmart to get a few groceries and it must have been singles night because those were the only people shopping!!  It was funny to me!!  It was not a good idea for me to go buy groceries because I was hungry and everybody knows that's a bad idea! 
I had a fabulous weekend that was full of friends, work, shopping, movies, food and wedding talk and it was great!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

My washer was fixed yesterday so I was a happy girl to have plenty of clean clothes this morning!!  I worked all day at the restaurant.  It was a rather slow day.  I realized that "The Vow" opened today so I texted my friend Deana to see if she wanted to go to the late show with me.  We kept going back and forth whether or not we would was cold and we both worked all day so we kept tossing around the idea of just going home and snuggling up in our beds and being warm!!  We finally decided we wanted to go or we would probably never go to see it!!  (We've done this several times and still have never seen many of the movies!)  It was so so good!!  I'm a sucker for sappy love story movies so I knew that I would love it!!

I had a baby shower to go to for Chad's sister.  It was at noon and they had mimosas and all kinds of awesome food that the mom-to-be made along with her mom!!!  Everything was so good!!  I ate way too much even though I split the big homemade cinnamon roll with my friend Crissy.  I left around 2 to get some groceries for work that night.  I also got Breaking Dawn....can't wait for our girls night to watch it this weekend!!  I made it home in time to take a little nap before heading off to work.
While at work, I got several text messages in a row telling me that Whitney Houston died.  That became the talk of the night!!  We listened to her music all through our lunch break and all sang along.  It's so sad!!

I came home, slept all day then got up to get ready to do it all over again!!!

Confessional Friday...

**I went to see "The Vow" tonight after work and that's why this didn't get posted till 12:30...hence not on Friday but the movie was so worth it!!!

I did not go to the gym after work last fail
I bought a bag of the large conversation hearts and ate all the green ones first, then the purple ones, then the pink the orange, yellow and white ones are the only ones left and I'm just going to throw the bag away.
I ordered another otterbox  yesterday....I don't break mine, I just stretch the rubber case part out but have no idea how!
I'm trying so hard to drink more water...but diet coke keeps calling my name

I got a VS sale catalog in the mail and I want to order way to many things out of it but then again, I didn't go to the gym so what am I thinking?!?

I eat late at night, not a good idea....I blame my job

Weekend Wrap-Up

I worked at the restaurant all day and had a good day!! I didn't have any plans so I went home and watched some movies I had gotten in the mail. The first one I watched was "Horrible Bosses" and it was awful!! Now, I know that's my opinion but it really was!! There was one really funny part in this video!!

I ended up watching more Gossip Girl so I could go to sleep!!

I woke up and got ready for my friend Abby to come pick me up.  This is what I call my OOTD!!
Scarf, shirt and cardigan all from Target!!  Favorite store ever!!!  And....everything was on clearance!!

 Me, Abby & Jessica all had plans to get together and go to a few wineries and then eat dinner at a new place. We had so much fun!!
(I forgot to change the settings on my camera so we're a little overexposed!)  This is the only picture we took the whole day even though we had planned on taking a picture at each place....we got a little sidetracked talking the ENTIRE time, mostly about our job!!  Both wineries were wonderful and then dinner was amazing!!  Neither one was on my diet new healthy eating style but all well, it was so worth it!! 

This was the first superbowl I've had to work as far as I can remember.  I made rotel cheese dip to take to work, just because we missed the game doesn't mean we couldn't have some snacks!!  We never plan potlucks at work because every time we do we get so busy and nobody ever gets to actually enjoy the food!!  I brought something in and so did one other girl, nothing was planned and we still got super busy!!  Eventually we got to enjoy the cheese dip!!

Friday Fragments

I've never thought of myself as someone who can write.  I know I can write I just can't write well.  HA!  I was always told by my teachers that I write like I speak and I guess that is wrong.  It makes total sense to me that I would write that way, I love to talk and talk a lot!!
Anyway, as I'm sitting here tonight trying to go to sleep because I need to get up early for work tomorrow, I can't.  This happens a lot,  and I'm pretty sure it's just because I now work nights so my body is used to sleeping during the day and up at night.  It's good for work but not good for days off! 
The other night at work, one of the doctors was sitting down with us and talking.  We got on the subject of being pregnant at an older age.  Quite a few of us are in our mid to late 20's but only 2 of us are not married and don't have any kids.  He told us that we should really think about "freezing our eggs" and we all laughed!  Then, we really started thinking about it and realized that it might be a good idea.  He was telling me that if I decide to do it my eggs will be the age they are right now even if I don't use them till I'm 38.  It terrifies me to think that I won't be having a baby till then but it might happen.  I worry myself too much, I know (HI MOM!!)
I mostly sit in my room and watch TV anymore because it's always really late at night and all I watch is Gossip Girl.  Maybe that's why I don't sleep very well at night.  It's just so much more comfy and warm than the couch in the living room.  Speaking of couch, I can't wait to buy new furniture.  This is what I've been looking at but haven't found anywhere around here yet!
I can't get this picture centered?!?
Yep, gray couch.  I know gray is very "popular" right now but it's also a neutral!!  I would love to pair it with something like these!

Yep and yellow accents!!  I'll be living here by myself so I figure why not make it girly but not pink, while I can!!  I plan to do all dark wood and lots of WHITE!!!  I can't wait to start actually finding stuff, that is my problem now!

What I'm Loving...

I'm loving Electra Moscato, my new favorite wine, the white more than the red!
I'm loving the sunshine we've gotten to see lately!

I'm loving the new 31 catalog that came out today!!

I'm loving that this is my weekend off! (I'm not loving so much that it is supposed to rain all weekend)

I'm loving my printables I've finally was able to print since I replaced my printer cartridge!!

I'm loving that it looks like it really is going to be a possibility for me to do something I've been wanting to do for myself for years!!!

I'm loving my new follower and comments!!  Love it!!

I'm loving diet coke once again, giving up caffeine is not smart for this night shift nurse!!  I'm sure my co-workers are happy I'm done giving it up!!
