Can I Get A Drink?

My confession today is that I cant drink for sh*t anymore.

And in all honestly I'm pissed about it.

I got home on Friday and Tyler had a 6 pack of Budlight Platinum waiting for me and I was ready to kill it

Well I don't remember anything after my second one. 



And woke up with a hangover for the record books.
 


The fuzzy memories of talking my ass off while we watched a movie (which didn't make for a happy husband),  tweeting like it was my job, and texting everyone in my phone. 

 

The only good part is that Tyler got me a sausage and cheese Hardee's biscuit and I didn't think twice about eating it. Greasy fast food breakfast is the only cure for a hangover, hands down.

So now we have 3 BLP left in our fridge and I'm scared to touch them.

Does this mean I'm old now??

Car full of animals

This weekend we took on the fun task of taking all three of our creatures to the vet at the same time.

Tyler decided to take the cat out of his carrier (side note: watching Tyler carry this pink/flower carrier through PetSmart is down right adorable) which was fun because I was freaking out the whole time that the cat was going to jump out the window.

 

Roxy was miserable in the backseat as usual. She braces herself by crouching down and pushing herself up against the seat. I've thought about getting her a doggy seat belt but I'm worried it will freak her out even more. Has anyone used or have one? Does your dog mind it?? And Zoey crammed her fat booty in my lap.

We finally made it and were put right in an exam room and the checkups started...


Tyler was not happy about them taking Roxy to the back by herself. So he sulked with Zoey (and obviously Cupcake was concerned too... or he just wanted to escape. Roxy got some shots and checked out at a solid 35.5 lbs


This little boy is doing good after losing his manhood.


Then it was Zoey's turn to get checked out.....

 

We were informed that Zoey is a little over weight and is no longer allowed to get treats every day. Tyler and I have argued about this for the past few months. I kept saying she was chunky and he said it was all muscle. Well guess what... I WON!! Home girl is on a diet. We need to get her down to a lean mean 8.5-9 lbs. No more of this double digit stuff (she was 10 lbs on the dot). 


One hour later we were done. While taking all three animals at once was quite the task it was totally worth it because we didn't have to make three separate visits. Now we're all set for 6 months!

I'm happy to have three healthy animals! Even if one is slightly obese (at least she's cute!).

Sunday Confessions

My confession this week is....



I kissed a girl and I liked it! Actually I didn't just like it, I LOVED it!!!

I got to hold and kiss on this little girl yesterday




We even made Tyler hold her and while he won't admit it, he loved it too.



He has this weird rule that he doesn't hold babies until they weigh 20lbs. We broke him of that yesterday though.






I can not wait to watch this little girl grow up! I hate that they live 2 hours away but I'm thankful for camera phones and facebook so I can keep up with her.

Welcome to the world sweet girl! We love you already!!

Five On Friday

I've never done this link up before but I figured what the heck. I should be able to come up with 5 things that have happened this week. I think that's the point of this right?

 

Here it goes

1. Came home to a spotless house on Sunday after a weekend at the beach aka I HAVE THE BEST HUSBAND EVER. He mopped the floors, changed the sheets on the bed, cleaned the bathrooms, gave Zoey a hair cut and even cleaned out the litter box!? See, like I said BEST HUSBAND EVER

I swear he gave her a hair cut... she just always looks a hot mess... but at least she's cute!

2. The weather at the beginning of the week had me ready to chop all of my hair off. 98* and 90% humidity is NOT my favorite thing in the world. However the past two days have been amahhzing. We're talking highs in the lower 70's and over cast. I know its weird to love weather like that but fall is my favorite season so a taste of it this early in the year is really exciting for me. I am not looking forward to all the rain we're supposed to get this weekend though.



3. Speaking of this weekend! Tomorrow BHE (best husband ever... I think I've found a nickname for him) and I are heading up to the mountains to visit with his best friend from college and his wife to meet their new baby girl! She was born last Thursday and I've been itching to hold that sweet little girl for over a week now. Hopefully holding a baby will fend off my baby fever for a few more months *fingers crossed*.

4. This text exchange happened yesterday and it makes me laugh because it just proves yet again how country we are now:

The diner I'm talking about is the only restaurant within 20ish minuets from our house and seats maybe 30 people, and the parking lot was PACKED at 5:40 on a Thursday night. I'm guessing it was the roast beef sandwich on special. Then of course BHE passed some baby llama's in someones yard. If you've never seen a baby llama you haven't really lived. They are probably one of the cutest baby animals in the world. Google it now.

5. I have maintained my weight all week and only worked out once. Gah I know I keep talking about how great I'm doing with my working out and eating right but Lord knows I've fallen off that bandwagon the past few weeks, and I need to get back on it ASAP.

So yep that's what went on this week. I think I did this right but again I'm not really sure

Hope you had an awesome week!

So it rained?

Evidently I slept through a storm that could've blown our house away last night.

I'm usually the worst sleeper ever and wake up every 30 minuets because I hear the dogs roll over in their crates two rooms away, or because I get hot, or because the cat knocked something over in the den, or because I cant get comfortable.....  
 This is exactly what it looks like in our bed every night, I'm the one going nuts and Tyler is curled up in a ball

Last night I didn't wake up once...

I did however wake up in a panic this morning when my phone alarm (aka my last resort alarm) startled me awake and our alarm on the dresser was flashing 3:42. I laid there for a minuet scared to look at the time on my phone because who knows how long it had been ringing in my ear, but luckily I had just enough time to brush my hair and slap on some BB cream before I had to leave for work.



So of course I jump out of bed yelling for Tyler to get up and asked if he had any idea that the power went out. He looks at me and goes "it was out for like 2 hours because of the storm, you really didn't wake up? It sounded like there was a tornado outside?!"

"Nope... so it rained?"

Thank you to the tylonal PM I took last night. You did your job my friend and it was much appreciated!

Home Away From Home



Getting to enjoy my morning coffee here is the best thing in the world


Dropping my phone down those stairs wasnt the best thing to have happen at 8 am though. I thought I was going to have a heart attack until I picked it up to find not a crack anywhere! My $5 Walmart case wins again!

Getting to make breakfast for this cutiepie started my day off the right way


And the fact that she has a sweet tooth like I do is fantastic! Who else would eat a chocolate chip waffle with peanut butter, chocolate syrup and maple syrup first thing in the morning??

We finally headed down to the beach around 2 on Saturday and the weather was perfect! I honestly could not have planned a better day for the beach.



Laying on the beach is one of my favorite things to do. The people watching is the best and you get to work on your tan!
I mean hello... I'm sure people were people watching me too, I was shamelessly taking selfies and also witnessed an old man doing the same thing. I imagine he was taking beach selfies to use on his online dating profile.


I also spent about 20 minuets trying to pee in the ocean.


Yes I just admitted that.

And NO I couldn't do it. I just can't bring myself to pee anywhere but a bathroom. Not in the woods, not in the ocean, not in a lake. Sorry I'm not sorry I'm a city girl and always will be.

After the beach the sister and I made the worst decision ever and went to the grocery store for beer and other essentials. Why was this the worst decision ever? Everyone gets down to the beach on Saturday which means everyone goes to the grocery store on Saturday evening. I honestly have never seen a line so long for the 15 items or less checkout. It was like we were at Disney World. We made it out with beer, peanut m&m's, wine, diet coke, and bagels. Like I said the essentials, but nothing to eat for dinner which resulted in me having to order take out from the best restaurant on the island, Sharky's, which has the best view ever.

And the white pizza is amazing. Paired with a beer and ketchup and you've got a perfect meal (yes I'm weird and put ketchup on pizza, get over it, and yeah I took this after I had already eaten my first piece. I couldn't document the fact that I had 2 pieces of pizza for dinner!)


After dinner I met a furry friend in the back yard and enjoyed another beer on the inlet, perfection,




This morning I spent time with my mom who is the cutest thing ever


Made my sister take a picture of me so "all of pictures from the beach aren't selfies"



Then around lunch it was time to head home.

My weekend with my family was amazing, I wish I could've spent the entire 2 weeks that they were down there with them but you know, some of us have to work for a living haha. There were lots of conversations about God, family, and the good old days. Any time I spend time with my family I'm reminded how lucky I am to share a name with such amazing women.  I'll admit it was really hard to leave but at least my drive home was beautiful



See ya next summer Ocean Isle

Sunday Confessions


I confess that I didn't work out for an entire week

Which means this post was full of lies (one reason I'm second guessing my idea of writing my posts for the week on Sunday and scheduling them because, lets face it.... things dont go as planned scheduled)

Last week was a total bust for me and I'll admit I feel bad about it. I did do my Pussy Cat Dolls dance work out video (every time I do it I realize just how long it's been since I've danced) on Sunday but other then that I didn't lift a finger.

I started feeling like poop on Sunday afternoon and took that as a sign that my body needed a rest. I actually ended up leaving work early on Monday and going home and napping with my dogs all day.

Tyler actually came home early too to take care of me (aka he watched tv and kept the dogs quiet while I slept) which was very sweet of him.

Tuesday I felt somewhat better but still not 100% which meant I did not feel like jumping around for an hour to Shaun T yelling because I'd probably hurt myself doing it half assed.

Then of course after two days of not working out there is no point in trying to jump back on the train so the rest of the week was spent laying around, watching tv, reading Harry Potter and going to bed early.

Now I'm at the beach which means I actually put on a bathing suit and it hit me that taking a week off wasn't the best idea in the world. I'm already too pale to be seen in public in a bikini and slacking off on my workouts made me really feel sorry for anyone that was on the beach with us. I'm praying that my white skin just blended in with the sand so no one really noticed.

So here is to a new week and a fresh start! I'm not making any promises though.....

Also I confess that I want to steal my mom's MacBook Pro that I'm writing this on because it puts my old worn out MacBook to shame. I hate how quickly technology evolves!

Headed to the BEACH

After work today I am headed to my favorite place in the world.

Ocean Isle! 



Ocean Isle with my family means late nights playing card games.

Days on the beach with my nieces in the sand

Sharky's for the best white pizza in the world

Bike rides to the ice cream shop

And the freshest shrimp you'll ever have!

See ya Sunday night Monroe I'm coming home with a tan!

No Longer a Man

This little guy is getting his manhood taken away from him today


I feel bad but at the same time I'm really excited because this means Mr.CC is moving outside as soon as he is fully healed!


Which means no more locking him in our master bathroom during the day!


Which means no more litter box in my house!



Which means I don't have to scoop poop (gross) anymore!




And hopefully this means he won't be such an asshole anymore. Excuse me for the language but just look at that face.... he might be cute but good gracious he is a jerk.


Hubby dropped him off at 7am this morning and we'll be getting him back with two less pieces and a cone of shame. I hope the dogs don't give him too much hell while he is coned. Although he deserves to get knocked around a little bit for the terror he has inflicted on Zoey for the past few months.

Getting In Shape

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you know that I've been focusing hard on working out/getting healthy lately. I'm determined to get in shape and look hawt!

Stop light photo of my guns, this chick is working HARD

While it sucks because I feel like my life revolves around eating avocado and working out I'm finally seeing results which is awesome


May of 2012 compared to July 2013

Why did no one tell me I was getting fat!? Now you might not be able to tell a huge difference but I can! I also love how long my hair is getting (yay vitamins at work!)

Last year on my 25th birthday I started my first round of insanity and I didn't follow through. I slacked off and gave up and fell right back into my old ways of coming home, sitting on the couch and doing nothing.
This time it was different!
I started on June 9th and while I haven't done every work out I've don't better than last year. I didn't start my 25th year off the way I wanted to, but I finished it out with a bang!

So here is to my 26th year on the earth and being fit and healthy!!
