Taking time off

I need a mental vacation.

Not that I have been blogging a ton lately (obviously) but I've been stressing my self out over the fact that I haven't been writing. Which is the complete opposite reason I even created this little slice of internet.

On that note I've decided to not worry about trying to write until after the new year. Between the holidays and trying to get myself healthy/in shape it just doesn't leave a lot of time in between to focus on this hobby.

Like I said previously, there is also a lot going on in my personal life that I can't share out in the open which makes it hard to write about other things when I'm mentally focused on something else. I hate not being able to talk about exactly whats going on because it's really exciting and it's become a big focus in my spare time (am I confusing you enough yet?).

Anyways I just felt like I needed to put this all out there for myself. So in 10 years and I randomly remember that I used to have a blog and look it up I won't question why I just stopped writing.

I'll see ya in 2014 Love Is Pink!!

In other random news, Zoey had a teeth cleaning appointment two weeks ago and evidently the chunk butt has gained almost a pound since her last appointment. She still isn't technically overweight but is getting really close to the line.... I'm blaming it on her poofy winter coat.

Oh hey there, my name is Bekah in case you forgot. I've been MIA for the past 2 weeks or so. Oops.

Lots going on in our world and most of it I can't put out here on the inter web just yet (no I'm not pregnant! I wish that what it was haha but it's not)

So what better way to get back in the blogging spirit then a link up!

Sunday Social



1. What is the wallpaper on your cell phone?
My lock screen is a motivational quote that I'm trying to live by. I'm finally trying to conqour my anxiety instead of just living with it.


My home screen is actually a picture I took of my pink sparkle phone case. My sister actually was making fun of me last night for it. But I don't care, this chick loves her some glitter.


2. What do you keep beside your bed?
Alarm/sound machine, hand cream, lip balm, and a book

3.  What is your least favorite chore?
Cleaning the bathrooms. It grosses me out just how dirty our bathroom gets (aka make up and my hair are everywhere). I'm lucky and Tyler usually tackles the bathrooms. I do the daily clean up and every 2 weeks he goes in and deep cleans. Yet another reason I'm a lucky lucky girl!

4.  If you could eliminate one thing from your daily routine, what would it be?
Having to fix my hair. I have a lot of hair and it gets kinda crazy. My mom actually asked me last night if I had extensions in because it has gotten so long/thick. Nope, that's all me and it's everywhere. If i could just wake up to stick straight non tangled hair every morning I would be a happy camper. 

 
I realize this is a terrible picture but whatever, long hair don't care!

5. What do you do to vent anger?
As of lately its been 9 round which is going to be getting mentioned a lot. Getting to punch and kick the crap out of a heavy bag every day is love. I also will call my mom and vent to her, thank goodness she loves it haha.

6.  What is your favorite holiday of the year and why?
Christmas, hands down. Spending the entire day with my family is amazing. From opening presents in our jammies, to the great breakfast dad cooks and then dinner with my entire extended family, it couldnt get any better. OH WAIT! Two years ago it did! We now spend the entire day Christmas Eve with my in-laws. Which means more food and more family time. I love love love it!

#AndICried

Well this past weekend was totally uneventful but at the same time chalk full of excitement/randomness.

I'll be honest, I don't even remember what we did on Friday night which means we were probably in bed by 10. Only to be woken up at 7am by the dogs barking for no reason other then they were awake and thought we should be too.

So what better to do at 7:30 on a Saturday morning then make some coffee, pop in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and get to Christmas tree decorating. If you recall my tree is pink which makes a Marilyn Monroe movie marathon while decorating 100% acceptable. And seeing that we haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet I wouldn't dare pop in a Christmas movie (I'm not that crazy).

Since they were up, the animals decided to help me




I also thought it would be a good idea to electrocute myself, and accidentally grabbed a broken light and stabbed myself with the filament (I think thats the right word) sticking out while they were plugged in. It's something I wouldn't suggest.

After the excitement of the Christmas tree Tyler and I headed off to the vet with CC for his 8 month check up. He was not happy to be there at all. Bless his heart.


But my little boy is a solid 8.2 lbs and healthy as a horse. A mean horse... but a healthy one.

Saturday night ended with me digging though old paperwork and a spontaneous bonfire at 9pm, now that we actually have trash pick up Lord knows I'm not throwing anything with our personal info on it away. You don't know where those guys take your trash! Hello, haven't you seen Identity Theft? That ish is for real!

We then stayed up till midnight and in our tired stuper decided to let the dogs sleep in bed with us... bad idea. Zoey kept me up all night breathing in my face and running up and down the bed (how she is so fat I'll never understand, she is always moving). So yup, up early again it was!

I spent Sunday running errands and doing house work. I also got to see my furry niece and nephew.


 And I started on a Christmas card wreath which I'm excited about and might actually finish (not making any promises though).


Sunday ended by watching a few episodes of Too Cute that Tyler had recorded for me and I'm not even gonna lie... I bawled my eyes out over this.


Please do yourself a favor and google "pipsqueak headbutts puppies" and watch it...

Thats when I knew it was time for bed...



Hope yall had a good weekend too! Now come on Thanksgiving! I'm ready to eat!!!

Five on Friday

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG 

How in the heck is it already Friday? But hey I'll take it! I'm ready for next week to get here!

1. Excedrin migraine.... I've wanted to drill holes in my head the past two weeks and this stuff works miracles

 

2. Boots.... I've been wearing boots all week and loving it. I feel like a badass wearing boots. Not really sure why because it's not like I'm wearing combat boots (which I really want a pair) but yeah. I just feel cool!

3. The fact that Tyler gave Zoey a bath this week. Dear lord she was looking a mess and he stayed home from work on Tuesday (which will be mentioned in number 3) and while home he cleaned our sweet chunk. 




4. The Panthers!!!! We kicked some Patriot booty on Monday night (which is why Tyler used a sick day on Tuesday, he was up late yelling at the TV) and it was AWESOME!
And now I really need one of these shirts thanks to Steve Smith's fantastic recomendation for Aqib Talib....
 
 
5. The fact that my car has heat. It has been freezing in the mornings and I'm thankful that I can warm my car up before I have to sit in it for the hour drive to work. Don't get me wrong I LOVE winter, but sometimes the cold makes me kinda bitchy.... 
 
Have a great Friday y'all!!!!

Did you know

I discovered something that I didn't actually realize was real life


Mini cows are a real thing... 

A few weeks ago at the corner store near my house there was a sign about a mini cow for sale and I thought it was a gag. Nope evidently not! And the picture above is my dream. I want a Great Pyrenees and a mini cow. In my world that would be perfection. They could be friends and run and play together.

If we ever win the lottery, we would buy a farm and I would have all the mini animals I could get my hands on. Mini horses, mini lamas, pygmy goats, mini cows, and mini donkeys. I would also have regular size horses and very large dogs along with a heard of tiny dogs like Zoey.

  

These tiny animals are so majestic I can't even stand it.

My Sweet Clara (picture overload)

This little bundle of joy turns 4 today





It's amazing how quickly time goes. It seems like just yesterday we were sitting in the waiting room at the hospital waiting for her to make her appearance into the world.

We celebrated her birthday yesterday and to say she is still as cute as ever is an understatement.


 




  
 



Happy birthday Clara! My little princess!!!

Yay it's Friday!

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG 


1. 9 round gym. A few girls at work started going to this gym earlier this year when I was doing insanity. Insanity isn't happening anymore so I needed to do something, and I joined this week and I'm addicted already. I mean hello I get to work out wearing pink boxing gloves! It kicks my butt but I LOVE IT!


2. Tyler coming home after business trips. It sucks when he has to be gone, but it makes me appreciate him cuddling me in bed even more when he is home.

3. The dogs actually slept through the night last night. They had decided to start waking up every 2 hours baring/wining the past week which got old really quick. So last night we moved the dogs beds in to our room and it worked like a charm. Not a peep out of them until our alarms started going off this morning.

4. The Goldbergs. I seriously can not get enough of that show. If we could go back to the morals of the 80's my life would be complete. When kids were blamed/punished for their own mistakes instead of being babied and workout gear included neon headbands.  Perfection.
 

5. Mexican take out for dinner tonight. I'm really excited.... like REALLY excited.

Have a great weekend guys!!!

Weekend recap

This weekend was pretty entertaining and as usual I didn't take any good pictures. Oh well I'll learn one day (maybe). 

Saturday was my sister in laws birthday so she came down from VA to party it up in Charlotte. So in classic Foley tradition we bar hopped down Montford. Started at Angry Ales (no pictures because I was too focused on stuffing my face) where I ran in to a friend I haven't seen in years! The fact that my friends are parents blows my mind. It's crazy that we are actually adults now. 

After Angrys it was on to Brazwells for tequila shots and Mimosas! 



The fact that I used to work right by this deck makes me sad, I miss working in  that area, I especially miss drunk girls wandering in to Palm Beach on Saturday nights after realizing how pale they looked and requesting spray tans. Hilarious. 

It was then on to Moose Head where we ran into some of Tyler's friends from Queens, which is always fun. Then we ended the night at Nom Nom for some grub. And that's when the funniest thing happened. 

We had been picking on Tyler all day saying he looked like Vin Diesel because of his outfit and as we were walking out of dinner this random guy sitting at the bar goes "hey man! Has anyone told you that you look like Vin Diesel? That's awesome man" 

I died.

Literally about fell on the ground laughing. Tyler was trying not to smile but our point was totally proven! I am married to a sexy man beast that looks like Vin Diesel! 


I mean right? Yes Tyler is taller, but dude has it going on! 

And this is how "Vin" ended his weekend 


Cuddled with his dogs... 

How was your weekend?
