Hello bloggers!!! OK - real quick post...I promise a "real" one is coming SOON! :) I've just been busy & had a lot going on.

One of my dearest friends, Lauren....STARTED A BLOG!!! And I'm thinkin' y'all should definitely go over & READ IT, & comment....let's see how many comments can brighten her day. :)

annnnnd try & convince her that blogger is way better than wordpress. ;)

BECAUSE..... there is no "button" to follow her.

She is an inspiration to me in many, many ways & I think she would be to you, too! :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday

OK y'all....this is the only chance I've had to blog all day...and I could not miss out on WILW.

I'm LOVING.....THE LORD! Seriously...He has blessed me with SO much. I had a big time realization on how blessed I really am this weekend. I love my life.

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME - all the time GOD IS GOOD!!!!!!

Short post - I know. But tonight & everyday all the Glory goes to Him.

I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ. Romans 15:29

Black Vanilla Current on our way to Sun Harvest (our new grocery store where everything is FRESH & expensive) I "stumbled" upon Bath & Body Works; let me just say its in the same shopping square....ok ok its next door. ha! I love that place.

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLL I ended up spending waytoomuch money on this AMAZING stuff. Girls............I kid you not --- this is the MOST amazing smell EVER.

It's called: Black Vanilla Current. Its awesome & amazing. Not a vanilla lover? Me either. Don't doesnt smell anything like smells of amaziness. Its sexy & romantic...but not too much that you can't wear it in the middle of the day. Even if it were too romantic, I'd still wear it 24/7. Ha.It's in the aromatherapy section, so go buy at least the lotion....& let me know what ya think. :) Today I purchased the lotion, oil (that you burn), a candle, bodywash, & 2 (YES - T-W-O) sprays.
I used the word amazing 4 times during this post......ha! Which must mean its pretty dang amazing. Oops - 5.

I am now making myself laugh...while probably annoying the heck out of y'all. Its called too much coffee...hehe. Happy Thursday ladies!

I hope everyone has been having a great week thus far! Time for WILW :)

I'm LOVING... that it FINALLY feels like winter around here! Yikes! Here is the proof:

I'm LOVING... my pup :) she sleeps with ;)
I'm LOVING... that all the old Sex & the City episodes are on E! every night!!!! L O V E. Their outfits? Not so much.

I'm LOVING... that I have the sweetest lovehead ever. I got home last night from a LONG day...and he had the perfect fire going...& the perfect meal ready. I love him. :) He also so willingly went to the store for me...a girl can't live without her coffee creamer & Diet Coke!

I'm Loving.... this Bible Verse I stumbled upon this morning...

Relaxing Weekend!

I hope all of you sweet girls had a great weekend! From what I saw on MY facebook...everyone had a very lazy weekend - which makes me feel better about mine. :)

Friday night my lovehead & I made grilled cheese sandwiches, with ice-cream (not together acourse!) & ate them in bed while this cute movie was playing! We have always done our sandwich/ice-cream dates (usually on Tuesday's) but that was our first for this year!

And man oh man....Saturday I got to baby-sit this sweet thang!!! Her name is Presley & I could just eat.her.up! We played dress up for a while.... hehe :) OH AANNNNDD Father of the Bride...and Father of the Bride 2 was on! I still cry when I watch them both...

She was napping while I watched them :) And without further is the precious Presley!
I constructed a baby Mohawk... :)
The girl loves her tutu's....
This is so funny...she is 7 months old & every time I would stand her in front of the mirror...she would laugh, laugh, laugh! I think she already knows how cute she is. I think her daddy is in trouble! ha!

Today we went to church, ate at Abuelos (MY FAV!!!!!), and then took a 3 hour nap. :) Hellooooo laziness! Tonight Real Housewives of Atlanta is on (my ultimate trash TV)...AND so is Sarah Palin's Alaska.

Happy Sunday!

Hey y'all! I just wanted to say thank YOU for all my new followers - makes this girl ohhhh so happy! :):):) First off if you're new...tune in HERE to see my very first post!

Now - I'm not the best blogger as in - I don't blog everyday (I wish I could - & I'm going to try my hardest to start!), and I'm sure sometimes my topics can be extremely boring to read, but I guess thats what makes blogging so fun - you can write whatever your pretty little mind thinks up & its YOURS. :)

Second - my grammar, punctuation, spelling & all that jazz isn't too great (ha!) so bear with my in that department :)

And one more quick thang - I have had SO many compliments on my blog design...which I L O V E. BUT, I can't take all the credit because this cool gal, PinkLouLou designed it for me! SOOOO...go check out her blog HERE. Oh, & yea - that IS Carrie Underwood with her in her jealous.

ITS FRIIIIIIIDAY, yippeeeee! :)))

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Time for WILW! Head on over to Jaime's to link up! :)
I'm Loving... that Valentines day stuff if already up in stores! What can I say...I'm a sucker for any kind of Holiday! :)

I'm Loving... this pretty chair my grandmother gave me. Well, I kind of begged for it :) we are both suckers for antiques. :) I want to sand it, paint it a gold color (it matches my room), find a seat (where in the world would I find that?!!?), and cover that seat with leopard. May sound weird, but I have an image in my head.

I'm Loving... that I'm getting my teeth cleaned tomorrow! Although I hate going to the dentist - I love me a clean mouth!

I'm Loving... that I got to spend almost 5 hours with friends yesterday! We had lunch at this cute bakery called Sugarbakers - where they have the most AMAZING desert!

It was a day full of eating out - because then we had Rosa's for dinner. Fatties. :)

I'm Loving... this Bible Verse: "Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days." Psalm 90:14

I'm Loving... life :)

Miscellany Monday

Well since I got off work early (YAAAAAY!!!) I thought I would participate in Miscellany Monday! :)

{Day off}
I was suprised & got off work today at 11! So I ran errands til 2, stopped by Sonic & grabbed me a Diet DP with vanilla, and now I'm home blogging. :) Oh, and I'm watching recorded episodes of:

{Monday Nights...}
...are now dedicated to....THE BACHELOR!! Oh my word, I am so excited I can hardly stand it.
And let me just go ahead & put my "2 cents" in...I actually like Brad. I know I know, every woman in America hates him....BUT I think we all would hate him MORE if he would have chosen a girl (out of pity), and then broke her heart later! At least he was being true & honest with himself. Right? :) Plus, he is pretty easy on the eye, he is FROM TEXAS (my home), and he has that cute twang accent. :)
This post is short, but I had to leave you with this precious face. I wish I could call her my own! :)
Happy Monday Y'all! :):):)

Sunday, January 2, 2011


I'm a simple gal...if I do say so myself. Simple things in life make me the happiest. Things like:

* True love, feeling LOVED, loving someone with all your heart, loving a dog like it was your own child. Just.... LOVE in general.
* Sonic Diet DP's with vanilla
* A song on the radio that comes on at the EXACT right moment
* The perfect amount of know, the kind the makes the day perfect
* Going home to my small hometown of Alpine, & hugging my family so tight I feel like my heart will burst!
* Conversations with your best friend. Whether it be on the phone, through facebook chat, or in person over a glass of wine or Mexican food... the kind that when you get done you feel.... refreshed. Blessed.
* A night filled with food, jammies, & a great Reality show......... like THE BACHELOR that comes on tomorrow night!!!
* The perfect Bible verse at the perfect moment
* The smell of a new BOOK...Hmmmmm
* My planner & mechanical pencil

Last night, lovehead & I had a "date night" and it was simple, but perfect. We went & ate at our favorite gourmet pizza place...

And then we saw  "Little Fockers"...
It was pretty cute, & funny like all the rest of them! I recommend y'all go see. :) And tonight we are cooking dinner, watching our TV shows, & cuddling by the fire. I said before.... I'm a simple girl. :)

Happy New Year!!!!!'s officially 2011, can y'all believe it?! I sure can't. This year has definitely been the fastestyearofmylife. Sheesh, I feel like we just celebrated NYE 2010!

Anywho....I literally woke up this morning feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to make this the best year yet! As I said in my last post - we didn't do anything TOO fancy this NYE....I'll leave you with a few pics. We are HIGH CLASS....ha!

Oh yes...mac-n-cheese :)
No alcohol for this chick...(I'm still recovering from strep)
CHEERS! If you look closely - you can see one happy pup - she was so happy we stayed home this year :)
It is soooooo cold here. Fire, please!
At around 11, we made ice-cream Sundays (YUM!), popped in The Fox & the Hound (because that's how we roll), cuddled in bed, & when 12 o'clock hit...we kissed, and were fast asleep by 12:10. ha!

Let me just say - I feel GREAT this morning. I received a call from one of my BFF's, and she did NOT sound too good. Helllooooo headache/hangover!! hehe.  :)

Now I'm off the make some black eyed peas for good luck!
