New Stuff

So, working 5 out of 6 days 12 hour shifts really makes me tired. But, I did manage to get a couple things done in the last week or so. Here's 2-4 of 50 for the stash diet:

(This is a wall hanging, I just don't have the ribbon on it yet.)

Ok, I just wanted to get those posted. Sorry for the shortness and inevitable boring-ness of this post.

So proud!

Of myself, of my boys, and of my babies.

Let me elaborate...

# 1: Of myself:

So, Niki (one of my good friends at work) and I threw a baby shower for one of our co-workers, Jessica, yesterday. Just me and Niki. And we planned the whole thing and put it together and pulled it off! Yay! Go us!

One baby shower last weekend for a family friend, one this weekend for Jessica, and one this coming week for one of the respiratory therapists at work. I have spent more money at Babies R Us in the last couple weeks than I planned on. In fact, I would really like to make something for Amy (the therapist) for her shower this week, but I don't know if I will have time. We'll see how that goes...

I'm also proud of myself for starting the stash diet. So, for those of you that aren't familiar... A bunch of us girls from We Scrap Better are trying to not spend money. And do 50 LO's before we buy anything new. Because for real, we all have way more stuff than we will ever use, so why not use it up? So here's LO #1 of the FIFTY!

# 2: Of my boys:

I cannot believe that I have not blogged about this one sooner, but since I haven't, I now have TWO games to brag about. My boys (the Panthers, duh) are 2-0 now. That's right. We have won both regular season games so far. And yea, I realize that we are only week 2, but still. It's not like we are playing the Dolphins team from last year. We have won against the Chargers and the Bears. All without my main boy, Steve Smith. That's something. I don't care what the haters think. LOL

I could really talk about my boys for a while, like Delhomme's game winning touchdown pass with 2 seconds left last week or how we are so a second half team and I shouldn't doubt them when we are down because they came back today... but I don't wanna bore everyone. So if ya wanna talk football, lemme know. I can talk a while... :)

and # 3: Of my babies:

We went to the new dog park yesterday evening with our 3 babies and mom and dad's one baby. And let me brag like a proud mommy and say that they did so good! Titan and Tierra especially. I wasn't really surprised by the puppies because they adapt to anything new. They don't know any different. But Titan and Tierra haven't really been around other dogs much. And they did just fine! We will definitely have to make this a more frequent trip!

Sharing the love (Titan is between Brandon and my dad and Tierra is in front of dad)

Getting acquainted with a new friend....

Jake (the smallest one of the four, playing kinda rough with a bigger dog... he doesn't realize how small he is)

Time to get ready for some Sunday Night Football and then for another fun week at work. Last week I worked nights, and I'm pretty sure I will not do that again. It was horrible. I say now that I won't do that again, but when they are short, and they ask me... I probably will... I can't say no. Anyway, I'm back on days this week and I'm sure this week will be better.

Hope everyone has a GREAT week! :)

Lazy Saturday Night

Sitting at home watching this:

Kevin James "Sweat the Small Stuff."

Good times.

This video, by the way is part one of I think 5 parts and I highly recommend watching all five here:

This is part one, but the links to the other parts are on the left side.

Anyway, this week has been fairly busy. Tuesday was mom's birthday and we went out to eat. I also tried out my new running shoes that day and yay for not getting shin splints! I wanna be a runner when I grow up but I was having a hard time running because of those. But my new shoes make me feel like a real athlete. Which, whoever knows me at all knows that that is so not me. But that's the great thing about running. It's just me and the road. I'm not competing with anyone and it's a great way to clear my head and get my thoughts together. I tend to be a little Type A and running helps me deal with stress. So yay for new shoes on so many levels.

These are definitely not as cute as my previous shoes, but I have learned to not buy running shoes based on cuteness. That doesn't work.

So here are some pics from the last couple of weeks:

At the cookout:

Here's the edited one cuz I was bored (which I did on Photobucket, how exciting is that?!?!)

And from Tuesday night when we went out to eat:

Yummy Rum Runner, never had one before, but I will definitely order again!

Oh, and I don't know if you can tell from this pic or not, but this is why I have to go to the allergist next week...

Yep, I'm allergic to Jasmine and I don't know what to do about it. And that is what happens to me when I hold her. :( I have had bad seasonal allergies for as long as I can remember and then became allergic to cats when I was about 12 (after having had cats most of my childhood before that). My Allegra works for seasonal stuff, but definitely not for Jazzy. So now I have an appt w/an allergist next week at 9:00. After I work all night and then I have to work that night, too.

I am such a good employee that I volunteered to work nights next week cuz they are so short. Oh, and I'm throwing a baby shower for a co-worker next week and I am going to try to get something made for her like a mini-album or something. But we will see how that goes. Yea, I'm a good person, lol.

Ok, that's all I've got for tonight. Except you know how the last post I said that I was going to kick Statistic's butt? Yea... I definitely hate it now. One last pic to leave you with of some pretty flowers:

OMG, I ALMOST FORGOT!!!!!!! I am a HUGE dork and I'm sure I will get catch some slack for this, but I don't care. My wonderful sister-in-law Amber and I will be going to Charlotte on October 30th for the New Kids on the Block concert. Yep, that's right. I know you're jealous.

the randomness that is deah... thoughts, ponderings, and musings... with some scrapping thrown in
