Getting to Know You

1.  Have you ever snooped around someone else’s house?

I’ve looked in rooms, yes. Just to see how they were decorated. I would never snoop around someone’s personal items or open drawers.
2. Can guys and girls be friends?

Depends. If you are single, yes I think it’s easy for guys and girls to be friends. It becomes a bit more complicated when you are married though. Our friends are all marriage couples, but me and a friend’s husband would never hang out together.  and vise versa for my husband.
3. Can you curl your tongue?

4. Have you ever stolen anything?

yes, from walgreens and I was 14. lol I got caught.

5. Would you rather talk on the phone or text?

6. Memorial Day plans?

Going to a BBQ with friends. 🙂
7. What do you do to relax?

blog, make cards, knit, crochet, take a bath
8. Do you do anything to honor those that have died fighting for our freedom

I pray for them, every day.

The count down begins!

Tomorrow It’ll be 29 days away from my 30th birthday! I’m excited, but the main reason I’m excited is that dh and I are going to start working out in the mornings tomorrow! 🙂 I have a dress that fits OK, but I would love to loose some weight by my birthday party on the 26th (my bday is the 28th) and be able to look amazing in the dress and not need one of those sucky innie thingys. lol

Anyway, wish me luck. If you have a weight loss story and pictures….please link me so that I can get some motivation!!

Friday Follow!

1. Is there something you’ve always wanted to try but just can’t muster up the courage to actually do yet?

Go back to school. I am terrified of school. I feel I’m too old, yet again I’m only 30. I don’t know what I want to go to school for but I want to get a degree. Something I have failed at many times.

2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on?

Well, I wouldn’t feel right without Andy knowing so I would tell him and then he would let me spend it however I wanted. I would probably buy some card making items or become a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.

3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?

The monkey bars. Even though in kindy i fell off and my leg got caught on a screw that was sticking out. OUCH! i have a nice scar from that.

4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?

i like hearty breakfasts. Pancakes, eggs and bacon with milk and orange juice. Classic.

5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?

I’m a total Messy Bessy…hence the name…Housekeeping IN PROGRESS. lol 🙂

A SkinCareRx giveaway at The Undomestic Momma

What an amazing giveaway! You could win $100 to spend at SkinCareRx. You have a chance to enter 17 times!!! I’ve never seen that many entries allowed on a giveaway before. One of the requirements is to figure out what you would spend the money on. Here are the products I would use:

M2 Skin Refinish

This products claims to lighten age spots and freckles. Since I’m approaching 30 (exactly one month to go!) I’ve noticed a few age spots and my freckles merging together. I would love to try this product and see if it really is worth it. 

Fake Bake TANtalizing Self-tanning Butter 
I SERIOUSLY need some help in the tanning department. Since becoming a mom of 2 I don’t get to just lay out and unfortunately this day and age with my husband working for the state of CA, we can’t afford for me to tan. I would love to try this product. It sounds amazing.

Jane Iredale More Lip Plumper
Again with age my lips have deflated. I need some serious help in this department and I don’t want needles anywhere near my face. Maybe this product will help.

There are thousands of other products at this website, please go to The Undomestic Momma to enter 17 times to win $100 to SkinCareRx

I found my motivation!

I have a terrible time being motivated to do things around the house. I get overwhelmed quickly and the BP disorder doesn’t help. I used to sit around and say “poor me, I can’t do anything.” but then I thought to make something so that I would be motivated. 
So, I set my coffee maker to make itself at 5:15 am. My alarm is set for 5:30 6:00 6:30am. On my night stand I have my iTouch ready to listen to some podcasts and a clipboard with what I need to do. It worked wonders for me today!
Where does your motivation come from?

*lol can you tell i like pink and black?*

My first vlog: My Craft room/Office!

It’s of my new craft room. It isn’t anything special, but I am very fortunate to be able to have an entire room for just my stuff. 🙂 Hubby and I were sharing but my stuff was taking over his stuff and he didn’t feel like he had a room to himself anymore. (He’s not a garage man at the moment as we don’t have any tools.) Our daughter has been moved into our son’s room and they are doing wonderfully! 🙂

Correction, i’ve had the mirror for 14 years LOL  not 24. I am turning 30 not 40. ugh I need to go back to school.
