more birthdays!

Happy Birthday Jayson!

Today was the day that one of my favorite guys was born. He is now 4 years old! Man, I feel so old! Haha. He is by far one of the sweetest little boys out there and he is just so darn smart! I can't believe how big he's gotten. He's no longer the little baby I was once scared to hold.

I love him to pieces! Hope you had a great birthday, Jayson!

Hi all! Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving? I know I did! It's always nice having family over and spending quality time with them. And I can't forget about the delicious feast my sister made this year! Everything was soo good. I couldn't stop eating. All that exercising for nothing! I stopped working out for the holiday and now I need to catch up and get rid of everything I ate! Haha!

Anyway, I'm so tired from the weekend that I'm going to keep this nice and short!...well kinda. I just want to wish a couple of people a Happy Birthday!

First, to my lovely sister Peejay... HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY! I'm sorry for putting the age on here, but I thought it's pretty important that people know how old you really are. You're absolutely beautiful and don't look a day over 21. I hope you enjoyed your little surprises and gifts today because you certainly deserve it. You've always been there for me when I needed you and even when I didn't. You are truly one of my bestest friends and I can't thank you enough for everything. Love you with all my heart! May you have many more birthdays to come, old lady! Haha!

And also HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY to my beautiful Goddaughter Kyleigh! I know we don't see each other often, but I do think of you constantly. I wonder how big you've gotten, what new things you've learned at school, and what toys or cartoon characters you like to play with now. Even though there is distance between us, as you get older, I hope you know you can always come to me whenever you need me. I am just a phone call away. Love you!! I hope you enjoy your day and hope you like the gift I got you. It's no iPod, but I hope it's good enough. Haha.

Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend! I know I'm already looking forward to my next 4 day weekend. Who knows when that will be though. Haha.

work work.

That's all I've been doing.

There have been a few changes at work and I was offered to play a bigger role in the company. Of course I gladly accepted this. I can see it's going to be tough, but I'm going to try my best to, as Tim Gunn would say, "make it work." Haha. I just need to put in more hours at work and outside of work to come up with ideas on how to better the company. I have also been working out every night. Proud? I know I am! I'm proud that I started again, but I have been too sore to do anything else and by anything else I mean blog and laundry. Haha. I have set some goals for myself and my sister Peejay and I have been working out every single night, except Fridays and Saturdays. And by the time I'm done, all I want to do is lay down and watch my shows. What inspired us to do so? Well we were motivated by these individuals and want what they have!! Haha.

Carrie Underwood's killer stems! I would kill to have my legs look like those!

We also love Karina Sminoff's abs!
This is the one I'm really aiming for, but I think it'll take me a few years to get to where she is. Haha.

I can't speak for my sister, but I know I was definitely feeling frumpy and down lately about myself and a good workout is exactly what I needed to get out of that negative mindset. I can honestly say that I know I've let myself go the past several years and it's been very upsetting for me. Especially when you hear your own mother call you fat once in a while. It really brought me down and for a while I didn't want to do anything about it. Now, I'm motivated and ready to start this journey towards a better me! I'm not doing it for anyone but myself! I want to be healthier and look and feel good. I can already see some changes and I couldn't be happier! My clothes are starting to fit better and I'm feeling a little more confident about myself. I promise though, if I end up looking like one of those girls above, I will post a picture of my body! Haha! I wonder how many of my 6 readers will stop reading after seeing that picture! =P

Well I need to go watch Dancing with the Stars to see if Rob Kardashian won! And maybe eat. I'm a little hungry. Haha!

I can't believe he is 8 years old today. I swear he is one of the cutest pugs out there and he's also the sweetest! He would never hurt anyone...not even an insect! Well, that's cause he's scared of them. Haha. I don't care how bad his farts smell or how dramatic he can be with going outside when it's raining or snowing...I will always love this little booger! Love you Simba Bimba! <3 May you have many more birthdays to come!

rachel bilson.

I absolutely love this girl. Granted, she is not the best actress and I don't expect to see her win an Oscar anytime soon, but she sure knows how to dress. I think she is one of the best dressed celebrities out there and I would love to be her sister or her best friend just so we can share clothes and shoes. Haha. If I was a little skinnier, you would definitely see me in some of her outfits. Right now, I feel like I can't pull off some of her looks, but I sure do hope I'll be able to in a couple of months. I've started working out again and I'm feeling pretty good. I've set a goal for myself and I'm definitely going to try to reach it by early next year and of course try to maintain it. Wish me luck!

Anyway, Rachel Bilson stars in this new show called The Hart of Dixie on the CW and I must say I really like it. It's about a doctor from New York who moves to a small town in Alabama to practice medicine and finds that the people of the town are not welcoming at all. I really like the story line and the fact that the setting is in a small town where everyone knows each other. I think it's just really precious cause that's not what you see where I live. Haha. I also most definitely love the different outfits her character wears on the show. They're just so cute! Here are some pictures of her...

Now aren't they just cute?! I want her shoes and her jackets and pants. Oh man, I would love for her to be my stylist! And now I wanna shop! But I won't. I need to save cause Christmas is just right around the corner. Haha. Well, I need to get to bed! Until next time...

I know I'm a day late, but HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I hope everyone had a nice day cause I know I did! Had a 3 hour webinar for work that started at 9:30 and then had the rest of the day off! Had lunch with my sisters then spent most of the day at the mall. First at Sephora and bought myself a new foundation and also a new bronzer.

I've heard so many good things about this liquid foundation and decided to see for myself. Took the ladies at Sephora to go through 4 different shades to find the right one for me, but when I saw how flawless (half lol) my face looked, I was convinced to buy it there and then. *Mental Note: Your shade number is 128. Haha.

She also convinced me to buy this awesome bronzer. It's called Park Ave Princess by Tarte. What I liked about this bronzer was how subtle, but shiny it looked on my cheeks. Definitely gives your face a little glow. My sister actually saw it on my cheek and she bought one herself! Haha.

I was never really into Sephora the way my sister Pam is, but damn you, Sephora! I think I just got hooked! Just kidding...kinda. Ha! I think we spent a good hour and half (possibly 2?) at that store. Too bad I'm super broke. I think I would have bought more items.

After the trip to Sephora, went home to rest for a bit then back to the mall to go trick or treating with Sheila, Kyla & little Jayson! His costume was the cutest ever! He was a green pterodactyl!

Can you believe he picked that out himself?! So adorable I tell ya!

Jayson trying on my Cleopatra head piece. Haha

 Jayson after all the fun. Haha! Just kidding.
He really didn't pass out like that.
He was trying to be funny. 

It was pretty fun walking around the mall and seeing all types of costumes worn by little kids. Lots of super heroes and princesses. I was really hoping to see something really creative, but I guess I'll wait until next year! 

Hope you guys have a good rest of the day cause I plan on it! I didn't have work again today because it snowed over the weekend (I know...snow in October?! Crazy...) and our office lost power. Lots of fallen trees and lots of towns that haven't had power or heat for days. Thank goodness we didn't lose anything, but we did have some big tree branches fall all over our property.

See? Crazy & Scary.

Ok, well that's it! =)
