Day 7-Favorite movies

Day 7-Favorite movies

I'm going to do my top five favorite

1. Legally Blonde 
I can quote this entire movie and do on a regular basis
Elle will always be one of my favorite characters of all time
And I'm pretty sure my obsession with pink stems from this movie
2. Dumb and Dumber 
This is the first PG-13 movie I saw.. I was with my parents at a hotel and my dad rented it on the TV
I was probably 8 and laughed the entire time
My mom still says I didnt even know what I was laughing at but its still one of the funniest movies of all time, at least in my opinion

3. Bridesmaids

I don't think this one even needs an explanation

4. Harry Potter (all of them)

 Yup I'm one of those crazy Harry Potter people
Enough said

5. Girl, Interrupted

I discovered this movie when I was having a hard time in highschool
It quickly became a favorite and always will be for me

What are your favorite movies??

This Week

Well per usual I've been a horrible blogger
So I decided to do a "week in review"

Last Saturday I treated Hubby to a Man Day
We went to Quincy's for lunch
(if you don't know what Quincy's is I'm sorry)
We were the youngest people there by at least 30 years
Then we saw Zero Dark Thirty which is such an amazing movie
I highly recommend seeing it in theaters
It is a very intense movie though so just be prepared 
Then as we were leaving the theater I couldnt find my phone...
I had it out before the movie so I knew It was somewhere!
Well Hubby was sweet and went back in the theater only to return with no phone
He said he even had a girl that worked there look in the bathroom
Well I go to dig in my purse and yup there it was... Oops
Well we had planned to go to the gun range to fire off some rounds after the movie
but because of my "lost phone" incident we got there to late to get a lane
So what better to do then shoot guns but go to the tattoo shop!!
Tyler had been talking about getting another tattoo so we figured what the heck 
This was the outcome
It says "Amor Vincit Omnia" which means "Love Conquers All"
I love it!
The rest of our Saturday consisted of Hubby screaming at the TV watching Football
So January 12, 2013 goes down in history as an epic Man Day

Sunday was probably the prettiest weather day we've had in Charlotte in a while
So we just hung out at the house and I took the dogs for a walk
Needless to say they are out of shape from winter resting and they both took hardcore naps after 
They honestly both didnt move for a good hour!
I did laundry and house stuff while Hubby yelled at the TV all day again
He did make an amazing dinner though

I'm so glad I married a man that can cook!

The rest of the week was crappy weather and work (boo)
Roxy wasnt happy about not being able to play outside
Notice the rain boots.. it rained ALL WEEK
We also were supposed to get snow Thursday night but where we live all we got was more rain, which froze and made our grass crunchy and didn't get us out of work 
Last night was fun though
It was Pizza and Cocktails night!!
(It's normally Pizza and Beer night but it's No Beer January at our house)
We also rented Pitch Perfect which meant LOTS of laughing 
Thats another movie that if you havent seen it... SEE IT NOW
And that brings us to today

Hubby is playing Xbox
The girls are napping
And I'm playing on my computer while watching Youtube videos on the Ipad

I love our Saturday mornings as a little family
And I hate to admit it but I love that we have no plans this weekend
I plan on just going with the flow and enjoying every second

Day 5-Your sibling

Day 5-Your sibling

Lisa is my "big" sister

I say "big" because she is about 5 inches shorter then me

We didnt always get along growing up
Being 10 years apart is hard
I can only imagine how annoying a 4 year old would be to a 14 year old
All i wanted to do was follow her around and she just wanted me to leave her alone
It was a love-hate relationship

The older we get the closer we become though and I love it!
Not only are we sisters but were friends

Basically she is one of my favorite people in the world

Adoption Birthday

Today is this sweet girls adoption birthday

Car ride home from the Humane Society
This morning on our porch 
I cant believe it's been a year!
 Time flies so quick.
Roxy has turned out to be the best dog I could've asked for
Everywhere we take her we get compliments:
 On how well behaved she is.
And of course how pretty she is.
It makes me feel like one proud momma.

This little mutt means the world to me and I'm so glad she is mine!

Day 4 - My Parents

Day 4-Your parents

My parents are the most amazing people in the world
no lie

My mom is a blonde southern lady
And my dad is a motorcycle riding business man

I couldn't have asked for better parents
They are the most loving, selfless, giving people I've ever met.

Growing up they were there for me through everything
My dad worked from home and my mom was a stay at home mom
They didnt miss a minute

My mom spent countless hours driving me from dance to gymnastics to piano to wherever
My dad never missed a recital or a performance

I could always count on them for anything and everything.
I love being able to say that I'm close to my parents
I know not everyone can say that so I consider myself a lucky girl!

Day 3

Day 3-Your first love

Yup that is a Polaroid picture
A true to life Polaroid, no filter needed

And standing next to me is my "first love"
In this picture we're 3 or 4?
His name is Patrick and I still refer to him as my "first husband"

Day 2

Day 2-Meaning behind your blog name

I came up with this name a few years ago
It actually was one of my AIM names
man I miss AIM sometimes

It really isn't some deep meaning or anything
I'm pretty sure PinkIsLove was taken so I just switched the words around
and it's just kinda stuck

Wow that was an interesting post

2013 Plan

 This year I'm not making resolutions because I always feel bad when I don't keep them
Instead I'm making a "Plan"
Just some things I want to work on this year

I want to check quite a few more things off on this 
So far I've checked off 19 things off... that leaves 82
I've got 2 years to knock out 82 things... WHOA

2. Be a better me:
Mind - breath more and try to relax
Body - eat better and try to work out
Spirit - speak to God more, focus on my faith

3. Be a better friend:
I've let my home life dominate my life this year
Yes it is important to me to spend time with my husband..
 but I need to work on the balance between my friends and my family.
A girl needs both in her life!

4.  Cut out random spending:
I've been doing better on this lately and it's self explanitory
I don't NEED a $4 energy drink everyday
I dont NEED new eyeshadow just because I don't have "that shade of purple"

5. Complain less:
In a nutshell my life is FANTASTIC!
What do I have to complain about?
Simple as that

6. Cut down debt HARD
No we're not in a bad place financially at all, but just like 90% of twenty somethings we have debt that we're working hard to get rid of.
We did good last year but this year we're taking care of this ish!

7. Start saving for our Dream House:
Again this is something we're already working on
Just gotta stay focused!!!

8. Spend more time outside:

That's my list of what I want to focus on this year, they are all totally doable things so I'm pretty excited for all that 2013 has to offer.

Oh and just because every post needs a photo

2012 wrap up

2012 was a pretty crazy year for the Foley house
We rang in 2012 at home just Hubby and I

Then just two weeks later this little booger became a part of our lives

Then in February this hot guy turned 28

In March Hubby worked SO hard on our garden 

In April, this little girl just kept growing!

In May we had a great weekend in VA


In June I got to meet Renee and her wonderful family

In July I turned 25, got another little booger, and met Jim and Summer

In August we spent a lot of time outside after work with the girls

In September I dyed my hair pink and we celebrated out 1st anniversary
In October Hubby and I went to our first Panthers game together

November we had two Thanksgivings and Clara turned 3

Then December was two Christmas' and my cousin Emily visits

Then yesterday was New Years Eve and it was spent with my beautiful cousin and ended hanging out with Tyler and his friends for dinner and the new year was welcomed in at the Foley house with Hubby and our two furry little girls.

It was a perfect end to a perfect year.
I'm so excited to see what 2013 holds for me and my family!!
