I have heard people say "follow me on twitter" and "twitter said..." I looked a the website a few times and thought it was junk, until recently. I am HOOKED on twitter! It is so neat to me that there is ALWAYS something to read on there. I dont have ANY followers, yet :(, and I am not following many people myself but what I have been doing I seem to really like. We shall see how long I keep up with my Tweets!

Another recent addiction of mine: Frugal Coupon Mom!! I saw her blog once before from a friend, then saw her on Dr. Phil, this week she was on the local news and I have been checking out her blog more and more. I am going to start trying some of her ideas.

My final is over with: we wont talk about that. So I feel like a free woman! Hubby starts football this Friday, so it is Football coaches wife lifestyle for me again for the next...oh...8 months or so! But he LOVES it and I LOVE him more so I can support his season.

I am also working on mother's day gifts!! Needless to say thank goodness finals are over because I still have a lot going on!

Jekyll Island

This weekend we went to Jekyll Island and it was AMAZING! We saw homes that were built over 250 years ago, pretty OLD trees, lots of wild animals and had a relaxing time. The girls went to the beach while the boys were golfing, went to a Sea Turtle hospital and ate some GREAT food. Wish we could have stayed longer there was so much to do there. Here are some pics to share! We cant wait to go again.

The only bad part about the weekend is I got sunburned...BAD. I have had a horrible headache since yesterday and was very nauseous. Got up this morning for work and couldn't open the blinds because my head was hurting so bad. Parts of me are so burnt that clothing couldn't touch with out sharp burning feeling. I stayed home today to keep ice on my head, medicine every 4 hours and to stay laying down (since I cant sit very well). Even though I did get burnt pretty bad, I REALLY enjoyed the weekend (it was much needed)!!!

I need help!

IM SO EXCITED...little things make me happy :) but I have moved my hair appointment to MONDAY! I have been long awaiting this appointment that was at the end of the month because my hair has not been "styled" in a long time. I have been wanting something "new" and have been actively searching online for fresh new looks. I have added a few of the styles that made the "final cut". I need help picking THE ONE!!!
The first one is my fav but it is VERY different from what I am use to. Number one it is SHORT number two it is SHORT! :) But it looks free and light weight which I think I would LOVE. Plus the second option (which is my comfort style)...anyways I am open for opinions!!

This is going to be short

I just need to VENT! Last night I had History (only 2 left). I wrote my term paper in Jan even though it is not due til the end of the semester. I wanted to make sure I made a good grade on it. I met with the teacher about two weeks ago. She made MANY "suggestions", wrote through the paper, I took it home and COMPLETELY changed the paper (to match her "suggestions" of course). Well last Thursday I turned it in on and printed out the final copy to turn into her last night in class.

I walked up to her and said "I know this is due in two weeks but I have worked on it so much that I have made myself sick so I want to turn it in early". She LITERALLY turned past the cover sheet to the first page of the paper and handed it BACK!!!! I was STUNED! I couldnt believe that, I have never had a teacher due that. So I brought it home and will Re-RE-REEE-READ it and see if there are ANY MORE POSSIBLE changes and try to turn it in again.

I really was hurt, I thought the paper was GREAT...probably my best eVER!!! Anyway, just had to vent because I could not believe what happened. She really did not have much to say either, just make a few more changes. WHAT?!?!?

SO, I am working on those chagnes tonight...wish me luck for GOOD this time!

Easter (Late)

My Easter posting is VERY late, but this is the first night I have been home to sit down and pay attention to my blog (this means there will probably be a few posts tonight). Easter was WONDERFUL for us this year. We were very blessed with greats friends on Saturday and spent time with our family on Sunday.

Saturday we hosted a cook out with our friends. We ate some YUMMIE food my hubby BBQ, colored eggs, played street ball, had a short craft session, hunted eggs and over just enjoyed time with friends that was LONG overdue! It was so good to see everyone together at one time...its been a while since we last were able to. Here are a few pics from Saturday. Blogger would only allow me to post 5 :( but ALL my pics are on Shutterfly.

Our craft session was how to make ribbon broaches, arent they just TOO CUTE?
Everyone seems to love them except the mean lady at my mom's office! I made momma one and she wore it to work today and some lady said to her "I cant believe you put that on your shirt" well woman I cant believe you would be so rude to say that to someone...people need to think twice before they say something to someone- words hurt. This goes the same for those people who post things on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, their blog, or any online website- people read those things and the text you type may come off differently than you intend and words do hurt. So think twice and Re-Read anything you post before you post could cause you to loose a friend.
Sorry about my spill...back to Easter!! :)

Ian and Rossi at the cook out. She was so cute...just smile the whole time and laughed!! I really enjoyed her. Hope to see her again soon!!

My fav egg from the whole weekend!!! I wanted to make it retro! :) hehe

My Hubby was too cute...he really got into the coloring!! He made a football and faces! I took tons of pics of him but this was the little boy!! hehe they never grow up :)

This is our Easter basket from mom and dad. We got a bird bath and it was FILLED with candy. We were very excited we have been wanting a bird bath for a LONG looks cute in the backyard.
We also went to Tee's Nanny for Easter...I forgot to take pics there I am so bad!! I got to learn to take more pics!! :)
Well thats a wrap, our Easter in a nut shell. It was wonderful and we are so thankful for those in our life!

I like this one
Haven't made up my mind on the flower style...

Tried to take a pic of me wearing it for Mrs. Goram...didnt work very well!

This one is by far my fact I may keep it for me! :) I think I will have plenty for Christmas!

I couldn't get enough of the broaches...have I turned into an old married woman? I am falling in love with BrOAcHeS!!!! I made three more this morning, all were very different. I am posting the last three pics of broaches, then on to cleaning the house, watching tv and doing homework! I really have turned into a CRAFT ANIMAL- I cant get enough!! I know you are thinking "what a loser"...haha thats me! :) Hope you enjoy the pics.

Broach CRAZY!

Second project off the christmas list: broaches! I am not a "broach person" dont really wear them (at least didn't wear them) but I have FALLEN IN LOVE with fabric broaches. There are two different "kinds" below I took a single shot of my favorite, I like to call it the "ruffle". They are SO easy to make and too cute! I have two more types I plan to make today and will post those pics later for opinions!

Hope you like as much as I did! :)

I made a total of five last night and this is all of them, the largest "ribbon" kind is my fav!

TWO Years with ONE amazing man!

Today was mine and my hubby's two year anniversary....cant believe its been two years WOW! We both were not feeling that great today (due to the strange weather), I had court, AND a test, then we enjoyed a romantic dinner at Harry's and walked around downtown for a little while. It was a very nice evening and I am so thankful for my hubby and our life.


This started as a scarf...but like I always do I couldn't put it down until it was finished so I changed it to a Koozie!! I cant knit anything much bigger than this because I can not put it down until I see the final product. Anyway, I finished the Koozie last night...I thought it turned out cute!
This was the beginning (when I decided it was NOT going to be a scarf)

Almost there...

Adding the ribbon...

The final product!

Knitting Progress

I just started knitting, thanks to Tam! :) I am still learning to make the rows look pretty. But here is what I have completed so far. *In reverse order (haha)

This is actually the last thing I completed and it is a cell phone case that was supposed to look the same as my first project but I accidentally adding too many rows so it looks more like the credit card case below. This was my mother-in-law's birthday gift!

This was supposed to be her gift, however she saw it was I was in the process of making it and said "I want one but I want it in green" so I finished this and started her a new one!

This is the very first thing I made, a cell phone case. It is actually laying on its side, I didn't rotate the pic! :)
I am proud of my progress, still have some learning to do! But I am currently working on a scarf which is difficult for me. I like the smaller projects because I have a problem putting something down before it is complete. I just like to see the final project RIGHT THEN! So the scarf is one that I have to work on and put away and work on and put away...we shall see how it turns out.
I plan to continue to update my blog with pics of my crafts because this year hubby and I have decided to make ALL gifts for Christmas. Which means I will making all Christmas gifts! This is a HUGE project but I am excited because they are all going to be different so I will be learning with each one. We started last month and I have one complete...only 27 to go! :) But I thought I would share the ideas I find because who is not interested in a little craft every now and then, especially if it is a money saver!!! :)
Hope y'all have a great week!! Mine is going to be WONDERFUL, Tuesday is our 2 year anniversary :)

She would be 18 today!

Marie's life was short but she made a HUGE impact on those who knew her. She was only 6 when she passed away but today she would be 18...I cant believe it. Today she will be remembered and missed. I cant help but think what things would be like now if she was still here. Would she have a boyfriend? Would she have made it through high school? Would she. be enrolling in college, if so where? What profession would she want? What would she wear?--> This is a BIG question, for those of you who know how much I LOVE my shoes, well Marie's shoes were bought for ONE outfit...yes everything had to match head to toe and do not try to mix a pair of shoes with the "wrong" outfit. The one thing I really want to know, what would she look like? I know what she looked like before she was sick and before she lost her hair, but when her hair was growing back it was so beautiful and looked so different from what it looked like before the medicine.

These are questions that go through my mind regularly but never fails to make me wonder on her birthday, what if she were only still here?

Trying not to pay attention

This morning I got up and started on some school work. After I was done, I thought I would surf the net for a little while, something I do not have much time for but LOVE to do, and my hubby was watching a movie. I did not realize when he started the movie how NASTY it was. People shooting peoples heads off, etc...EEEWWW!! So to keep my mind off the movie I really focused on surfing the net and looking for a new blog layout (to come soon) and found the info posted below and thought I would share. It is so easy to get comfortable with your hubby, I mean after all he is the love of your life and best friend what's not to be comfortable with?!?! But this website made me realize that even though comfortable is AMAZING, keeping the "spunk" alive is key to a successful marriage. Plus it keeps ya young too!! Anyways, just something I found interesting and thought I would share!

1. Flirt like it’s your first night together. Think back to those early days of dating. Every laugh, lingering look, or under-the-table leg brush was a guaranteed goose bump-giver. Well, you can turn back the clock to that supercharged premarried state by making a simple shift: Start flirting again. If you’re at a party, slink away, get a couple of drinks, and flirtatiously introduce yourself to your spouse like you’re strangers. It may take them a second to catch on, but once they do, it’ll set a sexier tone for the rest of the night -- and remind you both that there’s still a lot to discover about each other.

2. Make your spouse do a double-take. That’s one of the brilliant things about being a couple -- being so at ease in each other’s company. But there’s a line between being comfortable and letting yourselves go. (Hint: If you frequently show up to the dinner table in sweaty gym gear or go to bed with zit cream and prickly cactus legs, you’re guilty as charged.) Break out that lingerie crammed in the back of your drawer. Wear something backless. Shave and put on a nicer shirt than usual when you go out to dinner. It’s about showing your significant other that they’re still worth looking sexy for.

3. Try something new (channel surfing doesn’t count).You love your routine, so why mess? Well, shaking things up every once in a while keeps the zsa-zsa-zsu in your relationship. According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, couples who participated in activities that they both considered highly exciting but moderately pleasant had a bigger boost in marital satisfaction than those who did activities that were highly pleasant but moderately exciting. Check out a concert you’d never think to get tickets for, or explore a totally different part of town. The adrenaline rush will be an aphrodisiac.

4. Pounce…even when you’re not in the mood.Skipping the most intimate act you and your spouse could possibly enjoy together, you’re not doing your relationship any favors. Here’s why: Intercourse and orgasms trigger oxytocin, the “love hormone,” to be released in your bodies, which makes you feel incredibly fused as a couple. Sex is also the gift that keeps on giving: The more you do it, the more you’ll want to do it, so it actually stokes desire. So set that alarm clock a little earlier for some wake-up action, and put down that pint of mocha pecan postdinner and enjoy another kind of bedroom treat (better yet, bring in the ice cream too). You don’t need Olympic-level performances -- just enough enthusiasm to get that married mojo going.
