Okay so I guess I only post on Wednesdays for awhile and then just on Fridays! I was busy so what can you do. I have been planning some holiday posts so fingers crossed they are going to actually get written!

I don't even really know what to write about today. Week was busy and I had a had a doctor's appt so nothing really blog worthy there HA!

I really just waiting for work to be over today so I can go home and watch Gilmore Girls! I tried to stay up last night to watch some but lets be honest that wasn't going to happen because I'm basically a grandmother now when it comes to going to bed. It is weird because when I was younger I could be up until 4am and not worry about it now that would mess me up for a couple of days sleep wise LOL

Anyways, I hope all my American friends had a great thanksgiving yesterday and if they are out shopping today I hope you stay safe and get what you want at the stores!

Happy Friday!

Well, first time on the blog this week and it already Friday! It was a busy week for me, getting things rolling for the Christmas house tours decoration wise which you know I love! Plus, some appointments for check up stuff making sure the other ovary is okay. All good times! Anyways, I decided why not link up with Andrea, Erika and Narci if you haven't checked out their blogs you should! Now, onto my Friday favorites!

1. Lifetime Christmas movies! I for a long time never liked watching the lifetime or hallmark Christmas movies because they are so beyond cheesy they are hard to watch but last year I started with Guess Who's Coming to Christmas starring Drew Lachey and well I'm a little hooked now. I even DVR them now haha

2. Fun nights with Erica and Ashdenne! On Monday, myself, Erica and Ashdenne went to dinner and then did some Christmas shopping and we had a great time.

3. It is FRI-YAY! Weekend time! I don't have any real plans which I'm okay with because I have some stuff around the house I would like to get done especially finishing my Christmas cards! I got into other crafts and they have been neglected for the last little bit. Hoping to get them done this weekend.

4. I was only to have three but got word my package of crafty goodness from Vicki arrived! I can't wait until work is over and I can go home and open it!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

What's Hap'pinning' Wednesday

Happy Hump Day Folks! I hope you are all well and being kind to one another today. The sun is shining here and we are all still here. Today, I'm linking up with Jennifer and Jessi for What's Hap'pinning' Wednesday!

What has been hap'pping' with me? Last weekend pretty last minute myself and Erica decided to head to the city on Saturday for a wee bit of shopping and brave Christmas at the Forum! We even decided to brave it in the evening when it was two for one! Lordy, when you go to these events people please go with a great deal of patience and not be in a hurry. If you know me you know patience is not something I have a lot of but seriously some of the people at the Forum just needed to take a chill pill. We did have a great day and I did get some nice stuff at the forum! I was reading Sarah's post about her going to something like Christmas at the Forum with her mom this past weekend and how she thought she was going to be able to take pictures and browse around but ended up not able to do those things made me think of this! haha It is something but honestly the thing that annoys me most are the annoying younger firefighters who are selling their calendars! Most of them are fine but there are always a couple who are just so annoying, no sorry I don't want your calendar, no I don't think you're that good looking! Leave me alone now please! But alas we did have fun and it was good sister day.

Last week Jenn posted about the tomato tortellini soup she made and it looked so yummy! Most of us read the post asked for the recipe and like the nice one she is she posted it. On Monday, I made said soup and she was not lying when she said how good it was! Like omg yum! And it say it was easy to make is an understatement! Once you're done here go to Jenn's blog, read some posts and find that recipe before you leave!


The best worst lifetime Christmas was on this morning so I dvr'ed and I will probably watch that tonight! Hope everyone is having a good day and remember to be kind to one another.

I Have Them, Do you?

Some people like them, some hate them, some have them, some don't and some just don't care. I'm sure you're wondering what I'm talking about now and the topic of the day is tattoos. There are a lot of opinions about them. There is still a stereotype with them too even though many more people have tattoos nowadays.

For most of high school I wanted a tattoo but I hate needles so I never ended up getting one plus my parents would have had to say yes to it and that was not going to happen. My parents do not hate tattoos they just didn't want their teenage daughter to get one and hate it in a few years. After high school I didn't really think about getting one and it wasn't until probably 10-12 years later that I thought about getting one again. When I went back to school for cosmetology there were a couple of girls in my class that had really nice tattoos and I think that is when I decided I might want one again. I knew I didn't want something trendy or something that didn't mean something personal to me. I didn't want to regret it because well I won't be getting them removed. It took me months to figure out what I wanted but finally in my final term of school I decided and booked an appointment. I also made one of my friends come with me because I was super nervous about it. My grandma (dad's mom) had very recognizable handwriting and often signed cards for both her and grandpa. I decided to get her writing on me for my first tattoo. My dad was working away when I got it so once it was done I sent him a picture and he was pleased when he saw it because at first he wasn't sure about it but he couldn't stop me since I was 31. I only told a few people before hand so everyone was rather shocked when I posted the picture on facebook. I think most people were surprised because if you know me you know I don't like needles. It didn't take long and honestly it didn't hurt much. I was pleased and I know it is something I will never regret getting.

So, once you have one it is hard not wanting another one. I go through phases were all I want to more tattoos! So, a little over a year after I got my first one I decided it was time for a second. This one is in memory of my Nanny (mom's mom), I looked for something which her signature on it but I could not find anything. She passed away when I was 8 so I don't have as many cards saved as I did from my grandma because her and my grandpa didn't pass away until I was in my 20s. My nanny loved roses and jewelry! I think she passed that onto me for sure! So, I took my idea to the tattoo shop and Dale gave me a beautiful tattoo in return. This one of course hurt more but still not a lot and I'm very happy with it. I don't think it could have turned out better.

Do I want more? Yes, I'm trying to figure out my next one now but honestly I probably won't get it until next year because I'm not sure how I want to do it. If you have been reading my blog you know my instructor passed away in September and I would like to have a tattoo to remember her but I don't know what I want and I normally give it a lot of thought so I don't see myself getting it until next year sometime unless I get a great idea for it. My mother says two enough but I think she is wrong. Haha Sorry mom!
What are your opinions on tattoos? Do you have any? Let me know!

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Did you miss me? Last week was my birthday week so sorry (not sorry) I didn't feel like blogging at all and I may have forgotten to blog on Monday oops! But now I'm back and ready to give you what has been happening the last little bit in my life. I even have a few pictures, so lets get to it...

Got this in the mail a FULL WEEK before my birthday and I actually didn't open it until the morning of my birthday! Thanks to Tiana for the cute card that was inside!
On Wednesday, it was pumpkin carving time! We had pizza and cupcakes for my birthday since Chase and Lindsay wouldn't be around on Friday for my actually birthday.
We are all pretty awesome huh? It goes Erica's, Chase's, mine and Lindsay's.

On Friday, momma made me a red velvet cake! It was delish! And love the pearls and pink sprinkles. For my birthday we just went out for dinner. I got some nice flowers and gift cards :)
Saturday, watched Ghostbusters which was kind of Halloween-y and made a Christmas wreath! haha
My most favorite girl came to visit me on Sunday. Cutest Snow White ever, I love her to death. You can't help but smile when she is around.
and me from Halloween, just did a little quick make up for the trick or treaters and sadly we didn't have many but a couple liked it :)
How was your weekend and Halloween? I hope you all had a good one and Happy November! Yes, I'm listening to Christmas music now!
