This past weekend was particularly good because Trevor came home on Thursday night, and he got to the spend the weekend at home with me! After he flew in on Thursday evening we went to Saltgrass and had dinner and had a great dinner. Then on Friday night we watched a movie together and did some laundry, and cleaned the house a little. I was really excited that Trevor was home this weekend because we had an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party to attend on Saturday night, and it seems like he is always out of town when there are parties to attend. The girls (me, Paige, Jenay, Chelsea and J'ton) all wanted to get our makeup done for the party, so we had appointments at the MAC store at Firewheel. My makeup looks kind of dark for me, but everyone else's looked great! The party was alot of fun, and I got a beautiful necklace out of the Chinese gift exchange (thanks to Chelsea!). Trevor and I ended up staying at Garrett's house that night so that we did not have to drive back to Lewisville from Rowlett, a nice change! We woke up Sunday morning and Trevor went to his parent's house to fix something on my car and get it ready to be sold, and Paige and I lounged on the couch all day watching movies. At around 1:30PM I went to Trevor's parents house to make and decorate Christmas cookies and eat lunch. My cookie decorations are not that great- but they sure did taste good! :) After we left we headed home and watched the Cowboy game- and that was my weekend! Unfortunately Trevor left again this morning for Maryland and does not come back until the 22nd of December, but hopefully the time will pass quickly. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
Wow-it's been to long since I last posted on this blog. I am definitely more busy since I graduated and started working full time. Work is going great, and I love the people I work with everyday. I turned 29 in June, and had a great birthday. Went to the lake for the 4th of July with our friends Clint and Jessica, and I found out that one of my dearest friends Loni is pregnant, and I could not be happier for her and her husband Josh! We are currently planning her baby shower, and it's going to be so much fun. Trevor and I are still in the baby making proxess, we have not had any luck, but I am staying positive! I have heard that stressing over it just makes it harder, so I am trying to stay optimistic!
Trevor and I will be heading to Europe in August and spending 10 glorious days over there! I cannot wait! We are going to Munich, Venice, and Rome. This has been one of my dreams since I was young, so I cannot wait to see all the sites.
Also my friends Aaron and Brooke got married in June. It was a beautiful wedding, and Trevor and I had a great time celebrating with them. Just trying to touch on all of the highlights from this last couple of months, and I will try to do better about posting! I am sure I will have pictures of our Europe trip at the end of this month. Until then, XOXOXOXO!!
So I graduated college on May 14th @ 1:00PM. I gotta say that it was the best feeling! I did not think that it would make me so emotional but it did. Finally closing that chapter, and ready to move on with the rest of my life. Here are some pictures of my graduation and the awesome party that my Mom, my sister, and Stephanie threw me! Love you guys! It was so much fun!!
So Trev and I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 months now, so far no good. :( But like I said it's only been 2 months. Hopefully it will happen soon- my hope is alive! Anywho, so I have stopped eating well, working out at all, and have been saying to myself "Well, I don't need to workout and eat well because I am trying to get preggers and I will get huge anyway!" Not a good outlook to have, but SO much easier than trying to stay on the "healthy" path! Anywho, I will be graduating very soon, and I took a look in the mirror this morning and said "EW!" I want to look fabulous in my graduation pics, not Fat-ulous! The only solution for this situation is to get my butt off the couch, and away from the computer (stupid school work), and start working out. Trevor has said that he will start running with me, so that's great! Hopefully we stick to it. As far as eating so unhealthy, that will just have to stop. It's my own fault that I eat horrible things for me, and I can control that. I actually know alot of recipes that are super healthy for me, but for some reason I decide to make the cheesy goodness recipes.
Next up, figuring out how to get and stay motivated! I fall into the comfortable zone way too easily!! So if you know of any delish recipes that are super healthy send them my way!!
In other news, I started my job on Tuesday and it feels good to make money again. :) The only drawback is that the girl who was training me was absent on Thursday, and I had only 1 day to train with her. Then my supervisor called me today to tell me that my trainer had her baby this morning. AHHH!! So now I am pretty much on my own when it comes to figuring out what my job is. I will figure it out!! (Hopefully!) So now instead of working just Tuesday and Thursday, I will be working everyday. MWF after school and all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. More money! But less time to study for finals.... I'll take the money!
This weekend is not very busy. Trevor and I will be staying home tonight with me working on school work (I am running out of time!) and Trevor on the house. Then on Satuday we will be going out to dinner with our friends Aaron and Brooke. Yay! I have not seen either one of them in what seems like forever! Sunday will be a day of more school work. UGH- can't wait to be done! I am done for now! Everyone have a safe fun weekend!!
I have been wanting to do something different with my hair for a while, and today I did!! I always get my hair back to it's natural color, all healthy and long, and then I get the itch to change it. So today I went to my friend Sidney's house where her salon is and she highlighted and trimmed up my layers. It looks great! I love it, and it's jus light enough for the summer time. It is so funny how getting your hair done can make you feel like a million bucks! So thanks Sidney!! I know you are reading this- hhhheeeehhheeehhheee.
This weekend is Jenay's b-day party at Dave and Busters, yay! So Trevor and I will be heading there on Saturday, but then hopefully Friday night will be a nice quiet evening at home, and we can get dome house work done. We really need to start redoing the kitchen, take down the wallpaper, texture the walls, then paint those walls. Next up after that..... the blue room getting painted. We have been in this house since August of last year, and we have done very little that we said we would do by now. Such is life. But lately I have wanted to start these projects and just get them over with!!
I graduate in a month from yesterday! YAY!! Now I just need to focus on studying for my finals, and getting a major paper done. This year is flying by already, and I would like to slow down and savor my graduation moment, without having to think about getting a job.....hahaha yea right! I have a busy summer coming up, well in June, not really July, so I doubt that will happen.
Our camera is still broken, we just need to buy a new one, but I have a pic from my phone. SO here it is! I looked down in the photo so you could see the highlights.
So I got a call from my sister-in-laws work yesterday. I had asked Tammy that since I was graduating, if she could see if her work was hiring, maybe even something temporary, and if she could circulate my resume around her office. She did, and the next day- the HR department called!! YAY! So I filled out an application, and then I went on an interview today. It went really well!! I pretty much was told that I got the job, and that I will start training the week of May 3rd. Well, that is the last week of classes for me, so I told her all about it, and it seems to be fine. SO hopefully I will have a job soon! YAY! I would be a customer service rep., and that's ok, but I hope it leads to another job. ;)
Since Trevor and I have decided to try and get preggers, I will put off getting ym teaching certification, and just get a job to bide the time from me getting pregnant and actually having the baby. SO hopefully this will work out, and become a long term option, if I like the job. I am just excited that I will be getting paid. I have not had a job for a year and a half, and it will help to have more spending money, and more savings for my car that I will be getting during tax season of next year, can't wait!!
I started my weekend off by going by the UTA bookstire to purchase my cap, gown, and honor cords for my graduation. I was truly giddy at this point. I cannot wait to graduate, one of my biggest goals almost finally accomplished. This semester will finally be over with a few more papers written, and a few more tests to take! Next I went home, did some house cleaning, and the waited for Trevor to get home so we could go to dinner. After dinner we went back to our house and got ready to go out with Jessica and Clint. They were in town for their family Easter, and staying in Ft. WOrth, so we headed down to the bar area around TCU, and had some drinks, the boys played pool, and we had a great time. After we decided to go ahead and stay at the hotel Jessica and Clint were staying at since we had been drinking and liced around 45 minutes away.
On Saturday morning, we all got up, went to eat breakfast together, and then Trevor and I headed back to our house. We had a relaxing day toether, and then when it came to Saturday night we got ready once again to hang out with Clint and Jessica in Ft. Worth. This time CLint's parents came out- they are tons of fun- and we all went to the Stockyards in Ft. Worth. We ended p at this bar called "Flithy McNasties" kid you not!! Good friends, good music, and good times. That night ended with a trip to Whataburger for late night munchies, then Trev and I headed back home to the house to rest up for Easter Sunday.
We woke up SUnday morning, got ready for family time at my parents house, and headed that way. My whole family was at my mom's house, including my Aunt Dru and Uncle Mark. Next up was Trevor's parents house and we ate more food, and watched the kiddos hunt for the Easter eggs. I can't wait until I have a little one to hunt for eggs. Yes, that's right my baby fever has heightened!!! Surprise, surprise. :) Anywho, we went home and watched very little t.v., and then I crashed for the night. Was so tired!! That was our Easter weekend, and I hope you all had a great one too!! No pics from the weekend since our camera is still broken! :(
This weekend was a blur. It went by waaay to fast for my taste! Friday night we went to Wing Stop to grab some dinner, and then we headed to the Lewisville Baseball Center to watch a Opening Day Parade that my nephew was in. After watching the parade and wtching the kiddos play for awhile we went to get some ice cream (yum!) and headed home to watch some t.v. then go to bed. Saturday we woke up early to go to our nephew Greyson's first Blast Ball game. Blast ball is just like t-ball, but when you reach first base, the kids jump on the base and it honks. lol. They are 3, so no one gets out and there is really no fielding going on either. Just teaches them the basics of hitting the ball and running the bases. After the game Trevor and I drove to Garland. I spent the day with my parents and Trevor went to his parents so that him and his brother Trent could work on our new granite fireplace mantle. After that I went over to Jenay's house, played with her kiddos, then went to eat at Dodie's in Rockwall with Paige, Jenay, Wade, and myself. After Trevor met us, and we went to meet Chelsea and Brent at a friend of their's, and I actually ended up knowing from 1st grade- lol. Small world. After that we headed back to Jenay and Wade's to hang out a bit longer, then we headed home for the night. On Sunday we were lazy the first part of the day, but then around 12:00PM we got up took showers and headed to Babies R Us to order the crib that I mentioned in one of my earlier posts. It will be here in 7-14 days. Now all we need is a baby! I know it's only been one month since we started trying (yay!) but I am already impatient. HAHA. I can't wait for our family to grow. :)
Today I went to school and worked on our group project that is due at the end of April. Wow how this semster has flown by!! I cannot believe it's almost April, and that means only 1 month until I graduate!! After that, job searching will commence- oh goody. Wish me luck!!
Well, as my readers know, my wonderful hubby got me a ticket to the Black Eyed Peas concert for this past weekend. It was a blast! I started out Friday by packing my bag and then headed to my friend Ashley's house so that we could carpool to the W Hotel. We first heaaded to the MAC store at Firewheel Mall to get our makeup done. I had a girl named Nia- she was so fun and her makeup skills were excellent! After the makeup we headed off to the W Hotel where we met up with Chelsea, Jenay, and J'ton. We ate pizza from Campisi's then got all dressed for the concert. The W Hotel is literally across the street from the AA Center, so we walked to the AA Center, got our drinks, and headed down to the floor for the concert. I had no idea Ludacris was opening for the BEP, so I was so excited and surprised that he did! LOVE HIM!! He was amazing!! The same goes for the BEP. It was the best concert I have attended. The energy they caused in the room was crazy!! After the concert we headed to the Ghost Bar where the BEP were holding a private concert. Well, we get there and spot Miles Austin and Tony Romo.I tried to get a pic of Tony, but soon after my camera broke!!! :( SO I only have pics from Friday night, and not even all of it. Well by this time my feet were KILIING me from wearing high heels all night, so I decided to tab out and go to the room with Ashley. Well, the Ghost Bar is retarded or the bartender was and could not find my tap for like 1 1/2 hour!!! I was PO'd to say the least, so by the time they found it (ugh) Jenay, Chels, Paige, and J'ton were already in the room. We went to bed soon after, and woke up the next morning to snow flurries! We got ready then headed to Hooters to eat lunch. (HAHA- our waiter looked at us like we were crazy- all 5 6 ladies at Hooters alone- no boys.) Well it was close and sounded good! So we ate there then headed back to our rooms and just chilled for a while, but soon enough it was time to have our massages at the in house spa at the W called Bliss. My massage was 75 minutes long and AMAZING!! I left totally relaxed, and just wanted a nap! We al went back to our room, planned on taking naps, but ended up just talking, and sharing good times. After a few hours we got ready and decided that it was just too cold out to travel a long ways for dinnr, so we chose.....El Fenix!! HAHAHA. It was nice though because we sat there for almost 4 hours just talking, having drinks, dinner, and good times. :) After dinner we left and had to run through a whiteout! It was snowing so hard you could barely see where you were going, and it was freezing!! We fianlly get back to the hotel, ggrab a drink (shot) from the lounge bar in the hotel, and go to our rooms to drink more and just hang out and have girl time. It was a perfect night! We went to bed that night, and woke up the next morning, packed up and drove to Jenay's house where my car was parked. My car was covered in snow!! So I clear it all off, and start driving home. The roads were not that bad, but some of the overpasses were. I was driving on 635 near Skillman/Audelia and a BMW X5 slammed on their brakes in front of me, and started spinning out of control. I didn't know what to do!! They spun to the left, I kept my pace, then they spun around me, and missed me by inches! I was so lucky that they did not hit me!! Had I slowed down at all I would have been involved in a wreck that morning. The BMW finally hit the HOV wall and stopped. Whew- that scared the crap out of me!! BUt they were ok, started driving again, and all was well. Hate that kind of weather!!! ANyway I drove home, picked up lunch for me and Trev and spent the rest of the day relaxing in my bed recovering from a great girl's weekend!! :) Now back to reality of school work, and starting to look for a job. Argh. Here are some pics from the weekend, well only Friday night- grrrr.
Let me begin this post by saying that Jenay, Chelsea, Paige, Ashley, and myself thought it would be a good idea to have a girls night one night where we went to the Black Eyed Peas concert and then make a weekend of it by staying at the W Hotel. Well the time came to buy the tickets and it was just the wrong time for us money wise. The tickets were $100 for the floor (which is where they wanted to be), and it was Christmas time, no good. Buying presents for my family, plus Trevor's huge family spells no extra money. So I had to say no to the tickets and concert that I was so looking forward to. Well I still was going to stay at the hotel with the girls Saturday night, but was still bummed about the concert on Friday. Well, last week my husband called me and totally surprised me by telling me that he bought me the floor ticket and that I was going to the concert. I was so surprised!! It's one of those moments when you think "WOW! He knows me so well!" He talked to Jenay about the whole thing one night, and planned it all by himself. Can't believe it! Suffice to say, I am stoked about going to the concert with the girls and having a great time, all thanks to my wonderful husband. I love you babe!! :)So the concert is on Friday the 19th, and I am sure that I will have tons of pics to post. Till then!
As most of you know, Trevor travels quite a bit and is gone for appx. 10 days- give or take a few days on occassion. I used to have a dog named Kaiya to warn me if something was amiss in the neighborhood, but now she is with a different family, so we had our security system installed and hooked up when she left. I feel safer knowing that the alarm will blare if someone even enters the house, but I still have this irrational fear of strangers intruding into the house and hurting me. So where is this post going??? (I bet you were wondering!) Well, I am studying for this class in Criminology about serial murders and rapists. My final is on Sunday, and I am vigourously pouring through 2 books trying to study for this mid-term. One book had 9 chapters worth of information and the other book 3 LONG chapters of information that we can be tested upon. So I was reading through my Serial Murder book, and they discuss these murders and rapes in very vivid detail- ugh. So here I was last night, reading my book rather late into the night, and I just can't help the feeling that this could happen to me! Irrational I know, but still, being home alone is the worst sometimes. Especially when I have to read this book for class.
On another note, and this is going to sound strange to some, but I had to go crib shopping yesterday. NO I AM NOT PREGNANT! The reason behind this is my sister-in-law Tanya had a recall come out for the crib that she used to use for her now 3 year old son Greyson. Well Greyson does not use his crib anymore, so she offered us the recall certificate to go to Babies R Us and use the money for a new crib. She offered this a long time ago, even before we were married, but I kept putting it off because I was thinking wedding at the time, not kids! The only catch is that I have to use this certificate by April 2nd of this year- oooppps! So here I am going to Babies R US with my mom, dad, and sister, ppicking out baby furniture when I am not even pregnant- weird feeling??? YES!!! But I am not about to let a free crib certificate worth almost $400 go to waste!! So now that I have picked out a crib, I am planning on buying the dresser/channging table with it because it matches the crib, and I am afraid that the furniture will be discotinued. ARGH!! More money that I don't need to spend right now, but it's kind of unavoidable. SO..... if any of my friends who have a coupon to Babies R US, and you don't want to use it, please let me know!!! I am looking for one that says like 20% or 15% off any purchase or a furniture coupon, etc. It would be a huge help!!! I guess this furniture is going to have to sit in the attic until I have my own little bundle of joy, and I hope that happens sooner than later, because my baby fever is not getting any better!!! :) Love you all!! Please wither email or respond on here if you have such a coupon!! :)
We started out our weekend on Friday with drinks and wings at Hooters, then off to the Mavs game with our friends Clint and Jessica. We had seats at the very top of the AA center, but we still had tons of fun, and then I found out that an old friend Celia was at the game with her husband BJ. We text back and forth and then she invited us to the suite that they had tickets in during the 3rd quarter. We had so much fun catching up and watching the game!
Saturday was a much lazier day than Friday. We hung around the house all day, not doing much. I had gotten sick in Mexico b/c of their water (no I didn't drink it!) so I missed the Lation Cardio class that I was supposed to attend on Satuday morning with Libs, and Steph. :( So we watched Law Abiding Citizen, which is a really good movie, and finally around 3:00PM I got in the shower and got ready for the rest of the day. Like I said- very lazy. Clint and Jessica were leaving in a while so we decided to head up to Saltgrass to eat, and of course this is one of my favorite places to eat, and I still felt so sick to my stomach that I could not eat my food! ARGH! We went home after Saltgrass and said goodbye to Clint and Jessica, then Trevor and I watched a little bit more tv, then I started on homework that I needed to catch up on asap!
Sunday Trevor and I got up, took showers, and wanted to run errands and do things out of the house, BUT it was raining outside, so we decided to stay inside and clean house. We also had a wedding to attend today, so around 3:00PM we went to Target to get a gift card and a card to go with it, then headed to Meredith and Eric's wedding at the Hickory Street Annex. I had never been to this site before, but the inside is gorgeous!! They took an old warehouse and made it into a loft, and i turned out great! The wedding was so fun, and it's always a blessing to see two people who love each other start their married life together. After the wedding, Trevor and I watched a little more tv at home, then hit the sack!! Here are some pics of our fun filled weekend!! Until next time........
So we just got home from our trip to Mazatlan, and it was so much fun! I have never taken a trip with another couple and it definitely makes it more exciting to share it with more than just my hubby. We had a great time, we got to the airport and promptly started drinking, and the whole day pretty much followed like that. The resort was amazing! It was more relaxed than say a resort in Cancun where you have every 18 year old from the States running around on Spring Break. Immaculate service, and everyone was so friendly! The only downer was although I did not drink the water, I still got sick from the ice they used in Mexico. UGH!! Me, Trevor, and Clint got sick for at least one day. Jessica was in the clear (Clint's GF). But all in all we had a blast, and I would def go back there for sure.
So we returned on Thursday night LATE and I had to go to school on Friday morning, I was exhausted! Then on Friday night we went to Hooters, and then to the Mavs game, and it was fun! Haven't been to one in a while, and while there I got to see an old friend Celia, and it has been forever since I have seen her. She was in the United Healthcare Suite, and actually invited us in, so that was so generous of her!
So I am trying to keep my blog more up to date, cause rumor is I never update it- lol- Steph! I will try to do better, promise!! Love you all! :) Here are some pics of our wonderful vacay!
