Weekend Wrap-Up

So the ice started yesterday, going for about 12 hours, then the snow started.  I woke up to about 6 inches of snow and it wasn't stopping anytime soon.  I was so glad I got to go to my nail appointment yesterday and my hair appointment that was scheduled for today got moved to yesterday. 
A silly horoscope I saw on FB!
So that night I thought about trying to get to my friends house.  I was able to back down my driveway and that was it.
This is what my driveway looked like, at least the sun was trying to melt some of it!  I never did get a snow shovel after last year and that was a big mistake!  The only thing I had was a broom.  It helped push some of the snow out of my way.  I did actually get onto the road, drove around the block and was able to get back in my garage.  I spent the day watching Christmas movies on Netflix and finished wrapping the few Christmas gifts I still had left.  I was bored out of my mind!! 
This is what my back yard looks like...
I am still bored out of my mind but at least I had some things I could do to get ready for my work week.  Hopefully I can still get out of my driveway in the morning. 

I think my tree might be leaning...
Probably should have closed the blinds before I took this picture.

Weekend Wrap-Up (Nov 29- Dec 1)

Thanksgiving was my holiday to work so I worked all day yesterday.  We were actually pretty busy early on in the day trying to get as many patients home as we could.  Once late afternoon came, we were able to relax and wait for the evening rush!  I wasn't expecting to be on standby today but as luck would have it, they called and I accepted!!  I was already up and getting ready so I headed out of the house about 6:30.  When I got to Target this is what was playing in my car....
It wasn't too busy at this time because most stores had been open since 8pm the night before.  I ran into my BFF Niki and her MIL shopping.  It has been an annual thing for them to shop on Black Friday together.  We planned on meeting up for lunch together later.  I continued shopping and ran across this...
If I had a niece this small I totally would have bought it...or if it came in a big enough size for one of my sisters or my mom!!  HA!!  They are crazy cat people!!
I went on to Carbondale to shop some more.  I got lots of deals and maybe a few things for myself.  I was planning on bringing my old Christmas tree to work with me for a lady who needed one so I called her and met her in the parking garage to give it to her.  I then went to meet Niki to eat lunch at Chili's and they had a drink but I just drank water because I was on call at the hospital.  Afterwards, I went to Barnes & Noble to look for a certain book then back to Kohl's because I forgot to use my coupons earlier.  The line at this time was almost wrapped around the store.  Niki was there so I went ahead and got in line while they shopped.  We took turns back and forth to get our shopping done.  Everyone in line was so nice, one of the husbands even went and got a bag and brought it back for me!!  The Christmas spirit was in the air!!  I headed back to Marion to finish up some shopping and then went home.  I ended up going to a friends house and watched The Great Gatsby, it was really good!!

The weather was beautiful today!!  It didn't feel like it was almost December.  I put some lights outside and made my wreath for the door.  I had seen a picture on Pinterest (of course) of one you could buy and I thought I could make it.  I bought all kinds of stuff at Hobby Lobby yesterday and started putting it together. 
I was so happy with how it turned out.  I'm still gonna try to find a more whimsical letter K.
I headed down to Niki's to eat at her Mom's house.  She made another Thanksgiving dinner and I was so excited to eat it.  They fed us turkey and such at work but it wasn't the same.  Yum!!  It was so good!!

I spent most of the day cleaning and getting ready for the work week.

Weekend Wrap-Up (Nov22-24)

So this would be the second day I spent at Niki's with her boys.  They were out of town, so her mom and I took turns with the boys.  On Thursday night, I took the older boys to drum lessons for one and baseball hitting lessons for the other.  It had been rainy and cold all day and the parking lot was a mess.  This is the mess that was in my car the next day.  The oldest one felt so bad!!  Bless his heart!!
He was loving his new boots from mamaw!!
They stayed with her mom that night and I went back the next morning to get them and have lunch.  We came back to their house and the big boys went to a friends house so it was just me and the little one!!
He was using me as a jungle gym!!!
Isn't he just the cutest thing!!!
We went up to the church later that evening to eat dinner and then I went to get the big boys.  They stayed with mamaw again that night.  He slept so much better there than with me!!
I went over there to eat brunch with them and then brought to boys home with me.  This is the face I got when someone didn't get a long enough nap!!
I'm thinking someone was missing mommy pretty bad at this point!!
They got home that evening and the boys were so happy to see them.  We all ate some pizza and went through all their free stuff from the expo.  I went home to crash!!!
Just a little hot chocolate to end the night.

Weekend Wrap-Up (Nov15-17)

I got up and ran some errands.  Niki and I of course did some shopping.  I got this new mascara thanks to Kate at TheSmallsThingsBlog.  I love it!!!  The brush is amazing!!!
I was going through Kiki La'Rue's instagram account looking for outfit ideas and I LOVE LOVE LOVE these 2!!  Niki bought me that Lenore scarf so I have that, but the heather gray essential is sold out every time I go to order it. 

And this outfit, I ordered the navy leggings and I got a sweater from Target, then with the Lenore scarf and the boots I already version of this outfit!!
A bad storm passed through, but luckily, we didn't have any damage around here.  My friends and I made plans to all be together today, it's been a year since Chad passed.  Mike & Niki had everybody over at their house for dinner.  We had lasagna, salad, garlic bread, wine and lots of desserts.  It was a nice time, I'm glad we were all able to be together.

Weekend Wrap-Up (Nov8-10)

I met my BFF to do some shopping, it was payday Friday and all.  We got groceries and also did a little shopping for ourselves and I did a little Christmas shopping!!!

A few of us girls from work met up at one of the wineries, Von Jacob.
Jessica & I at Alto Pass
After we left the wineries, I went to Niki's for a bonfire.  We ate s'mores and sat around the fire until it got to cold to stay outside.  We came in and the girls played cards while the guys watched a game or something.  We had so much fun!!
I did my normal today, cleaned, laundry, grocery shopped and tried a new recipe that Niki gave me.  It was so good and I finally made chicken that actually tasted good!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I got up early!!  It was so nice not having to sleep all day the next day after working!!  Day shift is fabulous!!  I got ready, paid bills, had my car washed, grocery shopped and did some window shopping.  I really need to start my Christmas shopping!! 

Me and some girls from work were running our first zombie run today. We were so excited!!  This is us before....pre-mud!
Me, Trisha, Sarah and Laura 
(I'm on my iPad and these pictures are out of order a little bit but all well)

After the race, we changed our clothes so we could hang out around the fire and eat some yummy food!  Somebody just got two new puppies and this was Jack!!  They were so cute and kept climbing on our laps!!  I didn't get a picture of his sister Dixie!

After.....Laura got left behind at some point and ended up pulling a muscle and caught a ride with the zombies!!

See.....very, very muddy!!  We didn't get to run but maybe half of it because it was a trail run. The course is normally for ATV's and such so it was rough. Lots of holes and super rocky!  We can't wait to do more of them though!!
I was up early again and started getting my things ready for the week. Laundry, dishes and a little cleaning then I sat down to catch up on my shows!!  Last week, my friend Sarah had pinned a Michael Kors purse website on Pinterest and I saw it. I ordered a purse and a wallet for cheap and got it in the Mail Saturday, or maybe it was Friday. I don't really remember!!  I wasn't very happy when I opened it up and saw it but all well, what did I expect for the price I paid!!

The wallet was way to small so I won't be using it but I think I'll carry it for a while!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I spent the day with Niki doing a little shopping. She needed to get halloween costumes for 2 of her boys and we just wanted to do a little looking around. I needed lotion and we both wanted to go to our new Ulta that had just opened up the weekend before.  We hung out at her house that night, ate dinner and had a few drinks. I made sangria, my friends Sarah's recipe, and it was so good!

I slept most of the day then got up so I could get ready to go to Niki's for the parade. Her oldest son plays the bass drum in the school band and they were marching in the parade. They all got to wear their Halloween costumes also.  It was cold but not to bad and they were the best band there!!  The Cardinals game had already started, we listened to it on the way back to the house and picked up a pizza on the way. We got to watch the rest of it once we got back to their house. 

I tried to make myself get up early so I could go to sleep at a decent time tonight. I start my first day back on days Monday and I'm probably not gonna sleep much.

Weekend Wrap-Up

It was hair appointment day and I sent this picture to Lindsay after.  It was an early morning for me and I needed coffee!!!


 I met my friend Brooke for lunch at McCalister's, I haven't gotten to hang out and talk to her in a while.  It was so nice to catch up even if it was a short visit.  I went back to Carbondale to do some shopping.  I went to TJMaxx and bought nothing, Party City, the mall and Kohl's.  I found a few things at Ulta too!!! 
I went home to start getting ready for a halloween party I had that night.  I didn't know where the party was so I met up with some friends to catch a ride. 
 Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz

Batgirl and Dorothy
I slept in and then got up and got ready for my friend Danielle's wedding.  She is one of my co-workers and was marrying one of the only guys we work with!!  HA!!  They were both smiling from ear to ear all night.
Me and the beautiful Bride!!

Me, Danielle & Trish
It was pretty cold out there.  We were all sitting pretty close together and it was better.  We ate dinner then it was time to cut the cake.  Danielle had asked me to cut the cake and Trish helped me.  The reception was outside at a small lodge/bar and people from the bar were coming out and sneaking pieces of cake!!  HA!!  Some people have nerve!!
We left a little bit later because it was so cold!!  I met up with some friends at a restaurant and then we went to a bonfire/halloween party.  It was cold there too but they did have a fire. 
Me, Laryssa & Andi
We were missing our friend Lacee, so we thought we would do her signature pose!!  Always with the hair over her eye!!
(Seeing all these pictures make me want a new phone so much more....if the gold one wasn't out of stock everywhere!!)
I tried to sleep most of the day so I could work that night!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I started my weekend a little early this week.  I slept most of the day since I worked the night before.  I decided to go ahead and drive home on Thursday night instead of trying to get up early Friday morning because that wouldn't have happened!!  I love SLEEP!!  I called my sister and asked if I could stay at her house, of course, she said yes.  I was able to get into town in enough time to watch my oldest niece's volleyball game.  She didn't actually get to play when I was there but it was so fun to watch!!  They play 3-5 games depending on enough wins.  They had lost the first 2 games and I came in on the 3rd game when they were down.  They ended up winning that game and the 4th game and the 5th game was so close but ended up losing.  It was so sad.  (Disclaimer: these are all iPhone pictures and I have a 4 so the quality is pretty poor, I'm going to get a 5s soon!!)
We went back to my sisters house and got last minute things together for our camping weekend.  My other niece, Maddie and I watched the end of last seasons Hart of Dixie then finally headed to bed.
We got up and got ready to head to the campground with some fully packed cars!!  We set up camp and hung out all day.  We cooked dinner over the fire and ate way to much food.  We sat around the fire and hung out and talked.  I "watched" the Cardinals game on my phone, well not so much watched but watched the score on my sports app and read the play by play.  It was a long game and after 13 innings I'm glad they won!!

I think I slept a little bit, I was just glad I wasn't cold!!  We got up and Mom and Gerry made breakfast and it was so good!!  
A baby turtle we found at our campsite
We all hung out, some people took naps, Mom, Me & Lindsay hiked around the lake.  We almost crashed a wedding!!  HA!!!  Not really, we were able to go around without too many people noticing.  We came up on a birthday party and people taking family pictures also.  When we got back, Lindsay took a nap.  Mom and I were the only ones who actually stayed up....although I did close my eyes for just a minute sitting in the chair.  We ate dinner, hung out around the fire and played catch phrase again.  Then all these pictures happened.....too funny!!
HAHA!!  Both of them make the same face!!
I think she was falling....She didn't get our cheerleader genes!!
Oh, the beauty of camping
at least my teeth are pretty...right Linds??
She said I need to smile bigger....
so this is what she got!
Oh, are too funny!!
We got up and packed up camp and headed home!!  I got home and started laundry and took a nap!!  I definitely didn't sleep very well this weekend, not that I really expected to.  It was such a fun weekend and next will be too....Halloween party on Friday and wedding on Saturday!!!
