So I was going to post yesterday about how I ran across some recent pics of J. Simpson at an event, and she was looking FAB-U-LOUS!
pic from here So imagine my surprise when I open up my US Weekly tab this morning and it tells me that Jessica Simpson is pregnant yet AGAIN! The girl makes adorable babies, so I understand the enthusiasm to get back on the horse (so to speak...), but she looks like she literally JUST lost all the baby weight & didnt make it a secret about the struggle. I dont know, to each their own. For me, I just wanted to get rid of all the weight and then enjoy it before I get preggers again. Or was it cause I wanted to enjoy margaritas? :)

Its Ok Thursdays

It's Okay... that I've only gone to the gym 3 times this week even tho I really coulda gone 4

It's Okay... that during my "High Carb" day of carb cycling yesterday, I took that opportunity to down 2 cupcakes from a bakery.

It's Okay... that Im going to the midnight showing of Twilight to surround myself with screaming and giddy teens and pre teens.... and grown women.

Its Okay ... that I am getting a leg twitch over the fact that I want to decorate for Christmas. If it werent for my husband, Christmas decor woulda been out the day after Halloween. #sorryImnotsorry

It's Okay ... that I thought I was 12 years old again and climbed a giant black oak tree in my card in order to reach a branch to cut down #countrygirlatheart

It's Okay ... that Im seriously losing interest in Real Housewives of Miami #snooooooze

Just another manic Monday am I right? My day will be looking like this: hit the gym, come home and make the hubby bfast, kiss the hubby & send him off to make those Benjamins, give Troy and myself bfast, head to my besties house for a bit of life catch up/coffee/play date with our chitlins (MUCH overdue), go to Tar-jay, go to Trader Joes, go to another grocery store, come home, unload said groceries, feed Troy and myself lunch, put Troy down for a nap, empty the dishwasher and load Sunday night dishes (nasty, I know), do the laundry, shower, change the laundry, nap or watch Netflix, feed Troy dinner, bathe Troy, put Troy to bed, make dinner, welcome hubby home with a big ol kisser, put my feet up and get ready to do it again. Sounds fun, huh? Welcome to my every Monday, ladies. I cant complain tho, right? Some people have it worse. 

** those things crossed off have been done and done...writing this on Sunday evening**

You know what you'll never hear me complain about? My beautiful family. We got our family pics done on Sunday evening and check out the teaser our photographer posted, EEEEK! LOVE LOVE my boys

Have a beautiful blessed Monday, girls!

Ladies, long time no talk, yeah? Lets get down to some huge news & no Im not talking about our Commander in Chief. I have been asking Nick foreveeeeeeer if Apple is going to have a Christmas party. Ever since he's worked there, I've wanted to go to a Christmas party. Just the idea of getting to put faces to the stories I've heard, and lets be honest, I want to dress up!

As a stay at home mamacita, I never get the chance to dress up in a semi formal dress. Well and if Im totally honest, even when I was working out of the home, I never got the chance to wear a semi formal dress. So imagine my excitement when Nick sent me an email with a Christmas party invite from the company!! Not only is it a Christmas party at a hotel downtown, but we are staying the night at the hotel - aka no T Rex - aka Mommy and Daddy time with drinks and dancing, BOOM!

So I am in a serious predicament - a dress! I have been looking at , 6pm, Kohls,, and Kiki La Rue. I LOVE SOOOOOOOO many of them, but none that make me go "OOO thats the one I want to wear in the spotlight wear that night.

Nick has told me his "requirements": A little lace is okay, but not overkill, CANNOT be shorter than knee length (something about not wanting his coworkers to see the goods, I dont know), and it cannot be TOO MUCH sequins (is there such a thing?).

I am going to the mall in 2 weeks with 2 of my bestest girlfriends to try on every dress find "the one" if I can't find it online by then. Here are a few I've pinned on my "Holiday Dress ideas" board on Pinterest.
