Christmas Cookies

Me and my nieces spent most of our afternoons in the kitchen baking Christmas's always a favorite thing to do during the holidays.

Isn't this gingerbread man adorable?? My 5 year old niece made him. :)

Oops I forgot about these

Sparkle and Shine

I'm completely in love with sequins and what's even better is that they are perfrect for the holidays. I'm still searching for a fabulous outfit to ring in the new year with...of course something covered in sequins is a must.

It's Beginning to Feel a lot like Christmas

I'm so excited that Christmas is finally around the corner. With the weather getting colder as the day pass it's actually starting to feel more like Christmas time...last year it might as well have been summer.  Can you believe it snowed last week? That doesn't ever happen in southern Texas (pics to come soon).  Hopefully I can get my shopping done this weekend or at least make some progress...crossing my fingers that I do.

Cause you're hot then you're cold

The boyfriend and I went to starbucks the other night and I finally decided it was cool enough to get a hot drink...I'm usually a frappuccino type of girl. While boyfriend worked on his book I read his maxim magazine (can you believe I had nothing else to read)...within the first few pages the excess of more than half naked bodies made me wonder if I really should have got the extra whip...but after a second of thinking about it I decided it was way worth it.

The boyfriend's strawberries & creme frappuccino...he's not a coffee drinker.

I'm a Mouse...duh

It's getting closer to Halloween and I still don't have a costume. Actually a friend of mine is getting married on Halloween so I'm hoping that somone will have a party the night before...or maybe I should just throw one. Hmmm...not a bad idea.

Anyway in the past I haven't really been a part of the "girl world" when it comes to my costume. My family usually throws a big party on Halloween and I've never wanted to be sexy around all my little cousins,grandma, or aunts and uncles. Last year I was Cleopatra and the year before I really got into the spirit when I dressed up as a killer nurse (the boyfriend was my dead patient) ...we had fake blood and scary. I've been leaning more towards the idea of dressing up as a flapper, you know being a little glamorous but I'm still thinking...Any suggestions for this year?

It's Raining...

It's been pouring down over here which isn't totally bad. With the rain came some very cool weather. I love it...we usually don't have weather like this so early into fall. 

I hope your weekend is every bit


And glamorous

And filled with lots of love and happiness!!

Washed Away Messages

I love these prints from this etsy shop Bueller I happened to stumble upon...which I'm so happy that I did.  I've always found the beach so relaxing and peaceful...I've always wished I had a beach house.  How amazing would it be to step out every morning to a beautiful view of the ocean?  I also can't get enough of the writings in the sand...if you were to come with me to the beach you would probably catch me drawing hearts with an "e" and "c" ( C is the boyfriend's initial) inside. Sometimes I write it so close to the shore just to see the words slowly fade away into the ocean or other times I leave it where I know someone else will find it.  After such a long week of no sleep and the craziness at work, I think the last photo sums up my week.  I ended up taking a vacation day to let myself relax and I feel so good right now.  Sometimes we just have to know that in the end everything will turn out ok.

A Few Nights Ago at the Fair

The zipper is my favorite ride at the fair ride...pretty much worth coming for this ride alone...We ended up doing 10 flips in a row (the usual is about 4 flips in a row 6 or 7 if you're lucky) much fun.  I don't know what it is but I love rides that flip or the feeling you get from being on a roller coaster that has a huge drop. I couldn't stop laughing that night...we had a really good time.  I even got on the fun slide which you mostly see kids get on but it's a favorite of niece was like "you're really going to get on that?"  and I was like "What it's fun".   Anyway it was a good night just hanging out with my sister and rides, corn dogs, nachos, cotton candy, funnel cakes, a big cup of lemonade...okay I'm going to stop it's way too late to be getting hungry.

I'm Drunk off Margaritas

Not really!!! I love margarita's but this night I only had one...besides I had to drive home.  I took my nieces out to a concert a few weeks back where the Paradiso Girls performed.  We were sad to hear them only play two songs, they came ran off the stage as fast as they came on but at least I knew both songs.  LMFAO put on a pretty good show and seriously Pitbull had me dancing way too much.
 (is dancing way too much really possible?'s always so much fun)  

this was the only video I've been able to upload recently my computer is just taking way too long

For all you music lovers like me

Last night Creed and Staind were in concert. Sadly enough me and the boyfriend were not able to get tickets :( I know it's heartbreaking. I'm in love with Staind and I'm mean really in love like butterflies in my stomach. We were suppose to see Staind last year but Hurricane Ike came through and decided he should change our plans and ruin our pavilion. Boyfriend really wanted to go see Creed and last night I guess you could say we kinda got the chance. We happened to be listening to the radio on our way back from the county parade when we heard about this site called Their plan was to have 239 cameras (which put Creed in the Guinness Book of World Records ) at the concert and stream it live. Boyfriend hooked up his laptop to the TV and we got to watch it from his big screen. Now I know nothing can really replace the experience of actually being at the concert but this couldn't have made us any happier since we were not able to get tickets especially when it's free and the sound and video quality is amazing.

Singing to Myself

If you were here with me right now you would hear me singing "I gotta feeling, that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good good night" Actually it's more than just a felling I know that tonight is going to be far from beyond a good night. Today's my mom's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!) and we are all going to see the lovely Miss Britney Spears this evening. I can't excited!!

This is a pic I took at her concert back in March...looks like fun right!?!
