* six lbs and counting *

yes, I'm proud, pretty dang proud :)

I'm not very good at keeping with things (see blog - oh, get off your high hobbyhorse) however, I am really proud of myself for being proactive about my health/weight!

yay me!

anyway, so I am pretty much addicted to blog giveaways! They are absolutely insanely addicting! Currently I am pining for these, so deal with the ads, and let me get my extra entries!! :))

The first contest is for GlassesUSA Glasses! These are my fav!!
-this contest is being held at Just for Me...and You

These are the Eisenhower Brown glasses. All of the glasses featured in this give-away are under $30, and that includes the perscription! Fantastic!

Next is a Vintage Printed Chiffon Dress from VaVaVroom Online Fashion Store. Where you can find inexpensive vintage-inspired clothing! My personal favorite is the 3-in-one Tea Dress.

This dress is adorable! It would be great for everyday wear!

This give-away is being held by Just for Me...and You as well!

The next giveaway is for an apron by Flirty Aprons! I love the handmade feel of these aprons, they are chic and versatile! They also have aprons in children's sizes for mommy and me fun!

I love the contrasting patterns in this adorable pink and brown!

This give-away is being held at Just for Me..and You! :))

Thanks for bearing with me all, that's all the giveaways I'm going to blog about right now, as they are the most current ending ones! I'll be blogging more later!!

I mentioned your name today. lame-o

I *wish* that I could resign sometimes!

**taken from **
I do not claim any of the following to be my own, original work, I just enjoyed reading it, and wanted to share it with you. :)


I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald’s and think that it’s a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer’s day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple; when all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn’t bother you, because you didn’t know what you didn’t know and you didn’t care. All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is possible.

I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.

I want to live simple again. I don’t want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of miles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So … here’s my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my 401K statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further, you’ll have to catch me first, cause … “Tag! You’re it.”

went on a run/walk this morning

And it felt great. I am wide-awake, and pumped for my Anatomy practical today. After kicking ass on the test yesterday, I feel stoked for today, although I am going to do some studying before I go, I don't want to jinx myself! haha

--"She brought an airhorn because so many people fell asleep yesterday"

oh yes, that was from Dominic
oh yes, he was referring to his teacher
oooooh yes, he was one of the sleepers yesterday!

I would love to be there today when he inevitably falls asleep :))

So, I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed with Glee. And please tell me, how could you NOT be??!??

i know i already blogged today

but, I couldn't resist, I just got flowers from my hubby. Who else? lol. Beautiful, I am too lucky :))
be jealous girls, be very jealous :)) goodnight!

Amanda inspired me

Amanda, from the most amazing blog ever (click here to read it) just blogged about polyvore, which is a great site where you put together a collection of clothes and accesories that you have, you want, or you lust! So, of course, being the copy-cat that I am, I made one, and well, here it is! Enjoy!

Oh Hello Anatomy, thanks for letting me kick your butt!

:) Needless to say, I think I did well on the test :)!! Other than that, life! gLee is on tonight, so that's exciting, and I got to spend some time with Dominic today, so I'd consider today a success :)

Slim Fast

Doesn't taste as bad as I expected it to. Given, it's not good, but hey, dieters can't be choosers. Anyway, I've got a Chem quiz today, and surprisingly, I feel pretty ready for it. I've also got an Anatomy test tomorrow and an Anatomy practical Thursday. Those I don't feel quite as ready for, but I've got time :) anywho, Right now I'm watching sweet Kaelyn play with a Winnie-the-Pooh toy. It's pretty darn cute :).

I don't have much else to say, so instead I'll post my to-do list.

x.fold/put away laundry
o.get ready for school
x. study for 15 min. more for chem 1&2 sam. hw
x.pick up Anna from school
o.hang out with Dominic for Anatomy test more laundry on Dominic's gift out ruby and the rockits (bahah I'm so lame)

For the record, I can't wait until christmas. ?Por que tu preguntas? Porque es mi dia favorito. :) y proque tengo un regalo magnifico para Dominic :)

Let me tell you something

I hate dieting. I hate working out. I also hate the fact that I have huuuuuuge freaking cravings as soon as I decide to diet/work out. wtf? Gah, it's actually not bad, I love the high you get from excersizing, I also love knowing that I'm putting good food in my body. It's just really hard to have self control over eating habits. That's one thing I'm really bad at exercising, self-control.

anyway, on a lighter note, stinking Kaelyn has 2, count em, 2 teeth! Yay! also, she is sitting up completely unassisted now! I'm so proud :))

well, I really don't have much to say, I should be studying for anatomy and chem, or I should be doing 1 & 2 Sam. hw. whatever. I'll probably go make some lunch.

peace :))

Kaelyn Has a Tooth! (almost)

oh, it's so exciting! I'm so happy :)) My sweet daughter's first tooth popped out yesterday. It's still flush with the surface of her gums, but it finally broke through, and we can see (and feel!) the top of it. Oh sweet baby Kae! Yesterday was a nice break from the crying and screaming of teething, and today we are already back into it - she has another one just under the surface that I can see :/ pobresita.

Ah well, school is a pain in the butt. I have so many things to do, I don't even know which to do first! *which is why I'm blogging lol*. Anyway, the worst part is, I don't have very many tangible assignments, most everything is studying and preperation, which to me is the worst kind of homework! But at least it's in subjects that I am interested in, for the most part.

I am loving my anatomy class. We got to look at the cadavers today, which was pretty neat, and we are going through tissue types right now. For me, the class is so boring, just memorizing structure, function, what-does-what-where-with-what, yada yada yada..but being in lab and seeing it, and actually realizing, ok, I know where this is taking place and why because I can tell you and show you on my own body - now that's learning.

Well, I know this is pretty short, but I do have a lot of homework, so I really should be going. PS, miss you all! :))

I Loooove the way my new titles look!

I just got done changing up all the cute fonts for both this blog, and my etsy store blog. I got all of my fonts, and the instructions how to do it at the coolest site, :))

anyway, Kaelyn's first tooth is just about grown in! It's finally cut the surface of her gums, but it's still flush, but it seems as if the painful part is done! Yay baby Kae! :)) that makes me sooo happy! Any who, I've just been doing homework (lots of it) and making lots of pretty new hairbows! I am really excited for all the new things happening this semester, with school, and etsy, and Kaelyn, and with me and Dominic :) This is looking to be a good year! :))

ps, I miss Facebook! haha

Etsy Update!

Thanks for bearing with me while I've been working! I've finally got the new blog up, it's for all things etsy, head on over to see what things are taking place by clicking here. Other than that, this blog is back to my boring old life :))

I broke my facebook pact. I told Dominic that I wouldn't go on Facebook allllll semester. Not because he wanted me to, but because I thought that it would help me stay focused and not laze the days away. Well, it did help me focus, but I cheated, haha. Oh well, my new pact is I will only go on it on the weekends.. I thnk I can stick to that one. Anyway, I know that this is a super short blog...but I've got cleaning and such to do while baby Kae is sleeping...I'm not even going to put tags haha.

PS Lindsay, Katie, Mat, Danielle & Dominic - you all are blog-laggers! Update already, sheesh!! :)) kisses to all of you!

First Day :)

Well, Long story short, very good day :)

Short story long...
I got up nice and early and got myself all prettied up for my first day of classes, and my first day of work :) Anatomy was my only class today, and it was at 715 in the morning...bummer! haha! It wasn't all that bad though, it's going to be a difficult, but fun semester.

Then, I had my first work day! It was great! I love my job :) All I do is work in a nursery, but it's still fun.

Then, I came home and got to squeeze my baby! That was the longest time I had ever been away from her, but she did really well (and so did I).

I've spent the evening playing with baby Kae and doing hw, and now, I'm going to shower, do some more homework, and then watch gLee :)
