I'm Smiling Because I Can--Even Though Braces Suck.

It's Tuesday which means that I co-host an AH-MAZING link party with my sassy bloggy bestie, Shawn. Are you ready to link up with us? We have no rules so why not?

This week, I'm completing my 10 Things to Smile About with Emmy Mom. Ready?

1. Having an amazing weekend ALONE {bow chica bow wow} with my hubby in Texas for the wedding of our friends Jeffica {aka Jeff and Jessica}. Thank you, Mom, for keeping Emma. You're the best!

2. Getting to see the Hunger Games midnight premiere with a couple of my IRL besties, Slush and Kiss. Gale is HOT! There. I said it. And look at the goodies that JK put together for us:

She is so creative! I love her! I didn't drink the sleep syrup or eat those cookies {yet} but a couple of people that were with me DID and they drank a lot more than these 2 bottles!

3. Playing my latest addiction, Scramble, and getting my highest score yet! BOOYAH!

4. Squeezing into a pair of Miss Me jeans that my mom got me for Christmas makes me really smile...especially since I couldn't get them over my chunky-ass thighs in December.

5. Losing close to 20 pounds since January 1 makes me smile.

6. This girl. Enough said.

7. Finding an app that counts down big events for me makes me smile too. HELLO CALIFORNIA VACAY!!! 

8. Mom and Dad opened the pool last weekend. Pool parties and water volleyball will be here soon! Who doesn't wanna smile about summertime?

9. FaceTiming with Kiss while she was slightly intoxicated made me smile. I would post some funny and completely inappropriate pics of that night but she would kill me.

10. A sweet pic of BOTH of my girls cuddling on the couch makes me smile. 

Linking up here today:

Join our parties and we'll show you some love in return!

P.S. I'm thinking about doing a Q&A session for next Tuesday's TTUT post. If you want me to answer your question, leave it for me in the comments. Anonymous questions are welcome too because I'm cool like that.

Weigh-In Wednesday

Happy Hump Day friends!

I'm blogging 2 days in a row! WOO HOO! Ok, so if you've been following me for a few weeks, you know that I've been on a strict diet called the Dukan Diet. {click for more information} Here are my latest statistics:

My weight as of January 1st: 177.9

My weight 2 weeks ago:         161.6
My weight today:                     160.0
2 week loss:                                -1.6
Total weight loss:                     -17.9

It's been years that I've weighed in the 150's. I'm getting excited! I haven't been as strict with this diet lately as I was in the beginning. Sometimes I let myself have some chips and guacamole and once, even a Captain and diet was consumed. Shhhh!

GUESS WHAT? I bought a size 6 in a pair of shorts last week. BUT, I was wearing a size 10 for GNO on Friday so sizes are just funny. I know I can definitely wear size 8's now. I'm not too focussed on sizes so no hate mail please. I just love the way I feel right now which gives me the motivation to keep going.

**I'm turning comments off for this post. I probably won't be around blogger today as I'm going to do some volunteer work. Thanks for reading and being a loyal follower! I heart you! xoxo

Doin' the Humpty Hump,

I Have More Addictions Than You.

I'm blogging today! 

I know it's been a whole week since I've left you lovies any comment love. I wish I could say that I have a good I was on vacation or I was mingling with famous people or on a drunken stupor....

...but sadly, I'm just not feeling blogger lately. WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME? I think it's my sobriety. 

BUT, I did have my first Captain and Diet of the year on Friday!!!!! WOO HOO!! It was like heaven on my tongue.

My lack of blogging could be directly related with all my other addictions {WWF, Instagram, Twatter, Draw Something, Pinterest, Crackbook, and my latest favorite--Scramble}

Go ahead, judge me. I can take it.

Sassy Shawn and I are back today hosting another edition of Talk To Us Tuesday and we hope you link up with us. Give me something to get my groove back. Stella got hers back so now it's my turn.

So, did anyone see Wanderlust?
google images
You know it had my BFF in it, right? I see ALL of her movies (good or bad) at the theater. Well, for GNO on Friday, me, Kiss, Slush and X-Rated headed to dinner followed by a look at this movie that managed to rake in a measly 2 million dollars opening weekend.

Soooo, it was stupid. BUT OH SO FUNNY! If you're a hippy, you'll LOVE it. Here are a few of my favorite lines that are rated R:

"Rain is the nourishment that God gives me through cloud teets".

"Think about being inside of me. Talk to your wife about it".

"I can lick your balls while I give you a bleepjob".

"I'm gonna stick it in your vag".

Yes, it was crude and I didn't even get to see Jen's "girls" like E! News promised me but I laughed my azz off until I cried at the silliness behind the lines in this movie. There may have been a look at a ginormous penis a few times.....I can not confirm or deny that though.

Kiss and I also watched 21 Jump Street this weekend {which I never watched back in the day}. Another silly but funny movie with a little sweet surprise in it for any former 21 Jump Street lovers.

As I type, I'm watching tornadoes touching down all around us so I'm gonna wrap this up quickly and head to the bathtub with M, Emma, and Lexi. Don't be jealous about the fun we're about to have. Gotta love spring and Oklahoma weather.

I hope you all have a GREAT Tuesday! I'll be by to read you assuming I will have electricity. =)

Love and Hugs,

I met this guy at a bar last night who works at an adt dealer, and he seems really into me. I was out with my girlfriends and we hung out with him and his friends all night. He didn't leave my side all night, and every time my drink became empty he managed to replace it before anyone else had a chance to get a word in edgewise. It's nice that he was interested in me and wasn't afraid to show it, but I'm not so sure about him. He seems like a nice enough guy, but I just don't think the chemistry is there. He came off as kind of desperate, which is never good. I am going to give him a chance and go out on a date with him. I figure it can't hurt since I am single and haven't dated in a while. If it doesn't work out, neither of us has lost anything. My friends say I am being too negative about it, but it's hard to psych yourself up for a date you already think is doomed.

Let's Talk About Boobs, Baby...

Today is the day that my bloggy bestie and I co-host a linky party. Have you all met Seriously Shawn? She's precious with or without pee running down her leg. She's on vacation right now so let's take a moment to hate her for having fun without us...

Ok. I just needed a minute to feel jealous. I get to be random today because it's TALK TO US TUESDAY and there are no rules for this link party.

Why does Christina Aguilera have to show us her girls every single week? I love her and I'm a total boob girl, but dear sweet baby Jesus--I've seen too much! Cover those bad boys up for a little while.

All above photos courtesy of google
And last night? I thought they were gonna fall right out. They must have been taped in that number really well. I wish I had the picture in that dress!

Moving on...

Did you know that....

  • when I text, I typically use my left hand but I write right-handed? You can say it. I'm weird. 
  • I can smell onions on M's breath when he walks in the door? It makes me gag.
  • I would LOVE to tattoo my lips?
  • I like it quiet during a massage? 
  • I hate the new word verification? Check your settings and see if yours is turned on. It literally drives me insane.

As many of you know, I'm addicted to pinterest. Thanks to pinterest, I was able to send this text to some of my homies last night:
It makes me giggle like I'm 14. If you don't get it, it's ok, Pumpkin. It's probably for the best that you don't know.

And finally....I need some AMEN's in da house over this one!

Soooo, what's on your mind this week? Talk to us and tell us allllll about it by linking up. If it's a little scandalous, we'll like it even better! *wink, wink*


I Miss Being Trendy.

Ugh. Monday. 

I'm not a big fan of you today. I had a sick hubby this weekend. He never left the bed. It's like the world stops when the DADDY is sick. When the MOMMY is sick, it's tough stuff and off to work he goes. I may be a little bitter. Is your hubby like this too? 

So, I'm linking up with these two hot chicks for Make My Monday.

 Mommy’s Sippy Cup
Jessica and Kelly want to know what my style is. Is it classic, trendy, or modern? What is my go-to outfit? And what beauty product can I not live without?

Ok, so my style USED to be trendy when I taught school. I got dressed up almost daily complete with cute shoes and jewelry. Maybe something like this:

But now, as a SAHM, my style tends to be work out attire or comfy clothes {think yoga pants and t-shirt}. BORING

HOWEVER, Date Nights and GNO's are my reasons for getting all glammed up these days. I would LOVE to own this outfit:

Or for something more casual like this little number {minus the purse}:

And finally, a beauty product that I can not live without would be my entire Arbonne line.

It's the best skincare on the market IMO and it smells delish!

What's your style? 

PS. Shawn and I would LOVE for you to link up with us tomorrow for Talk To Us Tuesday. No rules. Just girl talk. Come join the fun!

Cleansing My Soul With Confessions.

It's been a long week my friends. I'm doing another old school version of JK's confessions because I'm pretty sure I'll feel better.

I confess I'm exhausted. I've had jury duty 3 days this week. My body is not used to getting up so early. I'm sleeping in and staying in my pj's for the majority of the day today. Go ahead, say something!! I don't even care!  Yes I do. Don't say anything.

I confess that I helped put a child molester in prison last night. He made my skin crawl. He was 62 and he was accused of inappropriately touching his 5 year old granddaughter. I hope he gets the favor returned to him in prison. Sick bastard.

I confess that I ate a cupcake this week and it was like heaven in my mouth. I've been stressed. DON'T YOU PEOPLE JUDGE ME

I confess that Shawn keeps saying how she's going to send me this so-called vlog of how to fold a fitted sheet because I can't and they piss me off. It's been MONTHS since I've asked her. Still no video. And now she has conveniently deleted it.  Whatever, SS. I see how you work.

confess that I have an ipad addiction. Every day, you can find me here: Crackbook, Twatter, Pinterest, Words With Frenemies, Myfitnesspal, Instagram, Blogger and my newest addiction--Draw Something. Thanks a lot Aly. I can't get enough!!!
 It's a FENCE!
Once you figure it out, it totally makes sense, right?! 

Can you guess this one?
Yeah, me either.
Can't you tell that's a TOASTER with toast popping out--complete with butter and jelly? Nice one, JK! ;-)

 I confess that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this angel:

Give me ONE juicy confession. I know you have something for me! I'm listening!

Have a great weekend, friends!

Weigh-In Wednesday on Tuesday.

Hi Lovies! It's Tuesday and that means that my co-host, the incredibly sexy Shawn, and I will be blogging about whatever we want because that's what our linky party is all about. And boy am I ever ready to talk!

So, do you know this book? Let's just say that yesterday wasn't a great day for me.

*I had to report for jury duty.

*Before leaving, I discovered MY WALLET WAS MISSING! I left it at the freaking movie theater Sunday!!! I had a small meltdown and a couple of panic attacks but I had on mascara so I didn't cry. {A good Samaritan returned it in and everything was still in it, including $50 in cash! Thank you SWEET BABY JESUS for good people!}

*After spending 1/2 day in court, I was told I have to report back on Wednesday. NOOOO! That's my Mother's Day Out day to get stuff done without my mini tornado by my side!!!!!!!

*After court, I continued my volunteering efforts to help a friend in dire need and it all led to a big fat migraine. Let it be known that I hate computers and new technology. 

*Emma had several meltdowns yesterday. One happened during dinner with M's company. I wanted to beat dat azz but I didn't.

*I didn't even open my laptop until 11:00pm. I HATE that I didn't visit blogs. I promise to visit you!! Don't hate me!!

Technically my list is much longer, but I'm sick of rambling. Let's go to the positive portion for today's post. 

I'm here to show you some pictures! As the title suggests, I'm doing a weigh-in today. I will be in freaking court on Wednesday so I won't be posting.

If you've been following me for a few weeks, you know that I've been on a strict diet called the Dukan Diet. {click for more information} Here are my latest statistics:

My weight as of January 1st: 177.9

My weight 2 weeks ago:         163.8
My weight today:                     161.6
2 week loss:                                -2.2
Total weight loss:                     -16.3

Here are 2 picture comparisons: {click to make bigger}

I realize that the left side is almost 2 years old but I weighed almost the exact same before I started the Dukan diet. {The before pics were pre-P90X training--I only made it to week 5}. I'm amazed at the changes that I see happening.

I didn't post any views from the front because the "girls" are shy, ok? Didn't you read yesterday's post about flashing the girls during Mardi Gras? I'm sure you understand. I have men readers whom I adore and I wouldn't want to make them blush.

***I want to add that the sports bra up there is an Enell. If you worry about your girls floppin' around while working out and need them to NEVER MOVE during your run, then you need to invest. It's the best sports bra ever! I saw them on Oprah years ago. ***

Ok, I'm all out of talk for one post. Thanks for letting me ramble. I'm ready to listen to you now. What are you blogging about today? Talk to us. We're hear to listen!

I'm also linking up with Stacy today!



Mommy’s Sippy Cup

Jessica and Kelly have a new meme called Make My Monday and this week, they want to know if I have a favorite recipe for entertaining. OF COURSE I DO! But it depends on what's on the menu. I used to be a dessert person, and this dessert never fails to disappoint and it's way easy.

Sopapilla Cheesecake
You will need:
2 cans crescent rolls
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 8oz. blocks of cream cheese (softened)

1 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 TBLS cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lay one can of crescent rolls in greased 9x13 pan, pinching rolls together to form first layer.

Mix sugar, vanilla and cream cheese in bowl. Spread cream cheese mix to make the 2nd layer.

Lay the last can of crescent rolls to make the 3rd layer, pinching together.

TOPPING: Melt butter and pour on top of 3rd layer. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. 

Bake 30-40 minutes. Your house will smell DELICIOUS!

In other news, did you play my guessing game from Thursday? I listed 5 truths and 1 lie. Your job was to pick out my lie. My parents would tell you I was GREAT at lying as a teenager. I'm not so great anymore. If you wanna play before seeing my answers, click HERE

So, in as little detail as possible {since Mom reads}, here are the ugly truths:

  1.  I had a "sexual situation" on an airplane.--True. Not the actual s-e-x act itself. Just a form of it. It was dark and we were in the back, ok?
  2. I've never had a one night stand.--True. If I had a random "hook up", it was repeated and not just for one night. Does that make it better?
  3. I have flashed my boobs for beads during Mardi Gras.--LIE! I have never flashed my boobs in public nor have I ever attended Mardi Gras.
  4. I kissed a girl and I liked it.--True.  My BFF, Rhonda {aka KISS} planted one on me with a little tongue back in 2003 on a beach in Florida. We were with our men but we were verrah drunk. You know, girls have really soft lips! No wonder men like kissing us!
  5. I took naked pictures of M when we were dating and we have NO IDEA where they are now.--True. I caught him running around his moms house naked back in 2001 and I snapped a couple of pictures for fun. We developed them and put them up for safe keeping except we have NO CLUE where they are now. Whoopsie!
  6. JennyKate and I invented a perverted blogger named Paul and we left dirty and nasty comments on our friends posts using his screen name.--True. Paul was all kinds of awesome in a creepy kind of way. I miss him. Maybe Paul should come back and leave you all perverted comments. And for your enjoyment pleasure, here is Paul. I'm sure you've seen him on here before:
Isn't he HOT?

Don't forget to link up with my sassy co-host, Shawn, and myself for Talk To Us Tuesday tomorrow. We have no rules! If you write a post, come back here and link 'er up. We love reading all the randomness. And you will get some comment love in return! 

Love and Thugs,
