It’s Okay!!!

Is it Thursday?  Really?  Already?  I swear it will be Monday, and then I close my eyes and it’s instantly THURSDAY!  Which I’m not complaining about, I mean I LOVE LOVE LOVE when it’s the weekend, because it means the Husband is home with us 🙂  and we LOVE IT!!!

BUT, without Further Ado….

It’s Okay that….

….I finally found a dog shampoo that I LOVE and I found it at Target of all places, AND it wasn’t an arm & a leg! Also check other products for cat & dog at my sister’s blog – www.kidfriendlyhome.com/best-outdoor-cat-house-shelter-reviews/

….I completely finished the kids baptism invites and just realized right this second that I thought the baptism is in 2 months and it’s actually in 6 weeks!  :-O  well either way, invites are done!  Now to send them out!

….I AM OBSESSED with Lauren Conrads line @ Kohls!  I love her fabrics, the patterns and ALMOST everything that she comes out with is just soooo freakin cute!!!  I desperately want these shoes!  BUT I’m waiting until they go on a better sale, I mean they’re cute, but I don’t want to spend $50 -.-

….I am pissed that MOST of the boy clothes that I have seen are plaid shorts!  -.- I can’t explain it, BUT I can’t stand plaid shorts for little boys…maybe because that’s all I ever see little boys wear?  I don’t know BUT I hate those outfits that are plaid shorts, and the shirt has a truck and on the truck it has that same plaid…ugh whyyyy is that ALL they had at Kohls when I went this week?  I LOVE Old Navy, BUT our Old Navy only has a baby section about the size of my closet, so I am in desperate need of a GOOD old navy baby section…

….I am so excited for our trips planned in a couple of months, first San Francisco and then Big Bear (yes the same place Domner was found)

….my baby knows how to whine now, how?  I have no idea i didn’t even know it was possible for a four month old to whine.

….I as of tomorrow have a FOUR month old baby!!! How??  Where did the time go??  I can’t believe how fast these last four months have literally FLOWN by!

….I found some super cute swim trunks for Carter and now cant wait for him to actually wear them 🙂

….I’m kindaaaaaa obsessed with Coffee still, I NEED a cup a day, at least, AND I might or might not have to warm it up 2 or 3 times by time I actually have time to finish it…BUT on Monday I was so excited I only had to reheat it ONE time!  WOOT WOOT!

….I THOUGHT that our liteweight chicco stroller was able to hold our infant car seat, I saw it in the babies r us ad and SWORE it was the same one we had…clearly it looks EXACTLY the same, except chicco added a clip thing to the back…in the end…i owe the husband $10

>> Also check my friend’s blog – baby car seat stroller combo

….me and the husband bet on EVERYTHING even if we share money…so what?!  We can say, HEY you OWE me, so I can buy this or that.

….I am TRYING to get on a cleaning schedule, and this week has been…ehhh I did half…maybe next week will be better.

….I’m obsessed with getting things ON SALE I have realized that I will hardly EVER if EVER buy anything full price, unless I know that there is no way it will ever go on sale.

….I’m SUPER excited for Easter 🙂

….I’m even MORE excited that  my sister has a photography friend that is going to take family pictures for the husband and I, eeek I can’t wait!!!

HAPPY THURSDAY friends!!

HOOORAYYYY it’s almost the weekend!! 😀

Happy Valentine’s Day & The Answers :)

DISCLAIMER!!!
The Husband has a ridiculous sense of humor, he often finds lying about things hilarious!  When in fact they are NOT funny.  Sooooo most of his answers are wrong, simply because he THOUGHT his answer was sooooo much more funny then the correct answer (see what I live with?  HEY!  At least he did it right?)  AND The Husband cusses a lot, you have been warned 🙂

How long have you been married?
His:  2 years 2 months
Hers:  It is now 2 years, 3 months 🙂
—-At least he knows when our anniversary is right? 😉

Where was your first date?
His:  Iguanas when I put it in your butt
Hers:  Since we were friends (for 6/7 years) before we actually started dating we don’t really have a specific time we count as a first date, BUT I always go by the first time we kissed and that would be when we were supposed to go to the movies but ended up meeting my aunt at a bar and then ended up going up to a hotel that is on a hill overlooking the city to see the BEAUTIFUL lights (same place he proposed to me 1 year later) 🙂
—-I told you he’s ridiculous!  He wishes I was Anne Hathaway can you tell?

Where was your first kiss?
His:  You don’t even know this one.  I remember after we left one of my friends kickbacks.
Hers:  I already explained this one above 🙂
—-What’s funny is he didn’t remember when he remembered when we got engaged to take me up there! 🙂

Who first said, “I love you”?
His:  We both did at the same time (JINX!!)
Hers:   He did!!!  AFTER literally two days of dating!!  Okay, maybe it wasn’t two but it was really soon after we started dating #meanttobe
—-He knows that he said it first, he just likes to pretend that I was as in love with him as he was with me when we first got together.

What were your wedding colors?
His:  BLACK AND YELLOW BLACK AND YELLOW!!!  Haha grey and purple
Hers:  Gray & Purple STILL love the combination today!
—-He remembered 🙂

What is her most commonly used phrase?
His:  Big Booty
Hers:  I do say Big Booty a lot, or Stinky Butt to Carter 🙂
—-It’s pretty funny that these nicknames get used so much because I really have NO idea where they came from.

Who is her celebrity crush?
His:  Russell Martin
Hers:  Ryan Gosseling, but really?  Who doesn’t have a crush on him?  Please name someone!!
—-I totally forgot that I was OBSESSED with Russell Martin 🙂  that was when we used to go to lots of Dodger games, and he doesn’t even play for them anymore!

If she is ordering drinks for both of you what would you each get?
His:  Beer duh
Hers:  I would probably order us both beers, since it’s a lot easier, an IPA for him, something delicious for me that I can add lemon to!
—-of course, we have a shared love for beer.

What is the best meal that she has ever cooked you?
His:  Posole
Hers:  I don’t know albondigas?
—-I should have known he was going to say that, I always forget how much he loves that.

What is the worst meal she has ever cooked you?
His:  Chicken & Rice
Hers:  Anything I’ve accidentally burnt?
—-I’ve never cooked chicken & rice, but he had it one time at my parents and he HATED it!  hahaha

What is the most-played song on her iPod?
His:  Metalhead
Hers:  Anything by The Black Keys, since that is ALL that Carter listens to EVER!
—-He’s ridiculous!  And thinks it’s so funny that I used to listen to a lot of Metallica

What would she say is your most annoying habit?
His:  Bitching
Hers:  His short temper!  It’s ridiculous!
—-I think he thought that said HER most annoying habit #dick

What is the last thing she does before going to bed?
His:  Tell me she loves me, and gives me a bj
Hers:  Tell him I love him, kiss him goodnight and then kiss the baby goodnight
—-hahahahah he wishes!

If you could throw out one item of her clothing what would it be?
His:  The shit she doesn’t wear
Hers:  I can’t think of anything off the top of my head, but he usually makes fun of my sparkly clothes #hater
—-he SWEARS that all of the clothes in my closet I NEVER wear NO matter how often I go through it, soooo says the one that has a dresser FULL of t-shirts, YES t-shirts, NOTHING else!

What would you say is your favorite thing about her?
His:  Her ability to make me smile even when I’m super pist
Hers:  That I can cook.
—-awe I can do that <3

What’s her go-to drink at Starbucks?
His:  I don’t know something skinny upside down shit.  I don’t think it’s normal for someone to have such a difficult coffee drink.  Coffees coffee just drink the shit.
Hers:  Iced Caramel Macciato skinny upside down, with extra caramel sauce!  DELICIOUS!!
—-he swears he doesn’t know but he always orders it for me 🙂

What’s her blog name?!
His:  My life as I know it.

The Husband

I’m pretty sure you’re all PRETTY tired about hearing about the husband.
We ALL have the BEST husband in the whole world right?
I’m POSITIVE we do!
or
at
the
least
The best husband for us!  RIGHT?
I mean you wouldn’t pick him to be
YOUR HUSBAND 
if he wasn’t the best?
OR
did he pick you?
Either way, you said I Do,
and it’s final 🙂
WELL
I’m linking up with Kristina @ The Streeters Unlimited to talk ALL about the Husband!
I want to share with you
some 
of the reasons
why I love him so much!
and what better way to do that?
Then with pictures?
 
I love him because…..
 
he drives this BIG BEAST every single day and LOVES it!
He loves disneyland EVEN if he swears he doesn’t!
he’ll even take funny pictures inside toy boxes with me!
and he insists on TAKING pictures “pretending to open car doors”
he gets EXTRA scared on roller coasters that we’ve been on a HUNDRED times!
he loves taking silly pictures 🙂
he LOVES to give hugs!
he loves to be “that guy” in pictures!
(creeper?  probably)
He always thinks these pictures are the 
FUNNIEST 
when he’s the girl!
He lovessss napping
especially with the
puppies
at bars
with his brother
and while holding lots of stuff!
he loves taking pictures of friends in the BEST situations!
sometimes he looks like a creepy old dude with a little dog
he’s been KNIGHTED by a KING!
he has the BEST smile!
he gives the BEST presents!
makes the BEST breakfast
and gives the best flowers
he loves dressing up

and always

sends the best text messages <3

he truly is 

the love

of my whole entire
life
and I couldn’t imagine my son looking like anyone else
and for that…I’m thankful every single day! 😀
I love you Husband, and can’t imagine choosing to spend my life with anyone more perfect for me!
don’t forget to link up & tell us all about your husband! 🙂

It’s Okay….September!

It’s Okay that…
….I am counting down the days until I go on maternity leave!!! (20 working days)
….I figured out how to watch The View on my phone and I LOVE it!  Literally it’s my FAVORITE news show (I guess you can call it that right?) well when I watch it I swear I know more about what is going on in the world!!  (my favorite days are when Barbara isn’t there, she annoys me >.<)
….I haven’t watched the speeches from the NDC, and I really really want to!  I need to get on that ASAP!
….I’m super excited for the FIRST baby shower to happen this weekend! 😀  Can’t wait to see everyone and celebrate my little one coming in just a few short weeks 🙂
….I’m excited to see my sister!  I love when she comes to visit and she’ll be here TOMORROW!!  Even if it’s just for the weekend I’m still excited!
….Kim Kardashian really gets on my NERVES!!!  BUT I can’t stop watching KUWTK!!!  -.-
….the husband calls the coffee I drink every day half calf, it makes me laugh!  I’ve never heard that before and he said that’s what you call it at coffee houses, you would swear he worked at a coffee shop, which is not the case
….the puppies really are sooooooooo cute!  they make me laugh on a daily basis and they’re so funny!!!
aren’t they the cutest little puppies ever?? 😀
….I can’t WAIT for all of the Fall Shows to come back!!!  EEEK so exciting!!
….I am actually pretty excited for the MTV Music Awards tonight, they always make me laugh BUT I’m kinda pissed that because we don’t have DirecTV anymore we have to wait until 10 to watch them :l
….it has taken me OVER an hour to get to work every day!!  Eggh so annoying!!!!
….I HATE when people say PIC out loud!  It’s annoying -.-  How hard is it to say PICTURE?
….even when baby Carter is kicking me to hurt me I LOVE IT!!  It’s really an amazing feeling!  It’s so funny that he feels like an alien living inside me, and when he comes out he’s going to be a HUMAN BEING!  I can’t believe it!
….I have been getting a little tiny bit of anxiety about actually having to DELIVER this baby :l  I look at newborn babies and think how cute they are BUT that’s a BIG thing to come out of your body OMG!!!  :-O
….I always look at OLD pictures on Facebook!  and remember exactly what was going on that day!  I swear it’s my favorite pass time!!  Today I was looking at pictures from our wedding!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
love that we were just laughing at enjoying each other
like there weren’t 200 other people there with us
 ….I need a haircut so bad and CAN’T find the time to go get one!!
….I wish I was getting off early tomorrow, but NOPE it’s a Friday where I work a full day booooooo
….some of my students get on my nerves….I HATE that they give me excuses for everything…I’d rather they just tell me the truth OR actually I’d rather them not say anything then MAKE UP lame excuses of why they didn’t show up to a meeting we had scheduled!
….I haven’t been up on my reality TV show watching recently and I feel so out of the loop.
….the husband & I are counting down the days until SOA starts!!  ONLY one more week!!  Ohhhh ya!!
….I have been getting heartburn every single day, I hope that means baby Carter is growing LOTS and LOTS of hair and I hope it’s curly like his dad!! 😀
wasn’t he so cute??  LOVE!!
….I can’t wait for it to be the weekend already!!!

Welcome Back

I’ve been trying to come up with a super fun interesting post, and every time I think about it my mind instantly goes BLANK!  Literally!  I want to share the progress of the baby’s nursery BUT we haven’t had much progress in there, besides changing the color of one wall, AND adding a cute wall vinyl sticker thing.  Don’t worry I’ll take a picture of it’s MESSINESS this weekend AND on hopefully after the holiday it will look 10000x’s better then it does right now!  So stay tuned!

You have become an OBSESSION and I can’t stop frequenting you, ESPECIALLY when you give me COUPONS & FREE SHIPPINGI can’t take it, I feel like I’m going broke while at work because I’m online shopping!  BUT I do love when I get those packages in the mail, it’s always the best to see what you actually bought since you don’t get to see it in your hands when you buy it!
Dear

When will you stop?  I hate you!
Dear
Co Workers,
You are all so nice, always asking me about the baby, and how I’m feeling.  THANK YOU!  You’re the BEST!
Dear

WHY must you always come while I’m at work and have NO medicine to treat you?
(NOTE TO SELF:  Why do you ALWAYS forget to pack said medicine?)
Dear

Dear
Husband,
I LOVE YOU!  You truly are the BEST husband in the ENTIRE world, even if EVERY SINGLE time I tell you that you think I am joking, I’m NOT really, I actually mean it!  Thank you for loving me, our dogs and our baby!  Yesterday, when you said “I don’t know what I would do without you, OR Carter and he’s not even here yet” brought tears to my eyes (true, it might be the pregnancy hormones, but I don’t think so).  I’m so happy to see that you are as happy as I am that Carter will soon be here!
Dear

Where are you??  I need you in my life, I’m over the humid heat…we live in SOUTHERN CA I have no idea what is going on, but when it’s muggy and gross outside @ 10 pm I feel like I’m on the East Coast, and this weather is the EXACT reason WHY I refuse to move over there.

11 Random Facts:
1.I have known the Husband for TEN years, the first six of them we were just friends, NO JOKE!
2.  I only have ONE sister and we share the same birthday!  My whole life it felt like I had a twin, even now on birthdays when we don’t spend the day together it doesn’t feel like my birthday.
3.  I get sea sick -.-
4.  I am the oldest cousin on my Dad’s family, and I LOVE it!
5.  My dogs are like my children, and I’m often afraid that when my HUMAN baby comes they won’t get as much attention 🙁
6. I can type pretty fast…thanks to completing my ENTIRE Master’s degree online 😀
7. Before I was pregnant I would NEVER drink any liquids besides water, and alcohol.
8.  I LOVE to cook, and do crafts, but since I’ve been working I feel like I don’t have enough time to do either one
9. I’d much rather text someone then call them, I don’t really like talking on the phone, I feel like when you are on the phone you are ONLY on the phone, BUT if you’re texting you can do LOTS of things while having a conversation, love the freedom!
10. My FAVORITE breakfast is a chorizo burrito OR beligian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream YUMMMM
11. I’m a serious PLANNER like I don’t like to just wing things (sometimes it’s bad) BUT it makes me the planner of my family, so all trips/dinners/events I usually have my hand in there somewhere making sure everything goes off without a hitch
 & here are the questions Jazmyne asked me…
1. Who is your biggest role model? Why?
My BIGGEST role model is my grandma 🙂  She’s the BEST person in the WHOLE world!!  She always puts everyone before herself, BUT can stand up for herself if she’s getting taken advantage of!  She’s so strong and the BEST person to talk to!  She’s strong and really is the glue that holds our family together 😀
2. What is your dream car?
Ohhhh I’d LOVE to own a Range Rover 😀  I think they’re sooooo cute!
3. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
Hmmm…
4. What do you consider your greatest strength?
I think I’m pretty organized, I live an organized mess, if something looks messy, it’s NOT I know exactly where everything is!
5. What are some of your pet peeves?
Yuck, it seems like I have ONE HUNDRED more now that I’ve been pregnant!  BUT
-I can’t stand when grown ups LIE!  Like for what?  Especially hate it when people brag about how “they do it all on their own”, rather go to school or raise a Kid when EVERYONE can see that you’re parents help you….I mean there is NOTHING wrong with your parents helping you because mine have helped me LOTS but don’t tell me you do it all on your own when your mom watches your kids while you go to school…or your Dad pays your rent while you’re going to school ANNOYING!
-When a Mom will be SUPER done up and dressed nice, and their kid is dirty and looks like they just rolled in the dirt, OR has drool on their face from the night before, UMMM your kid SHOULD be dressed and ready before yourself, and don’t tell me that it’s because you didn’t have time to get them ready you were putting your makeup on :l
-When people act like they KNOW what they’re talking about, and they don’t….ohhhhh so even though I have NEVER been pregnant, I’m going to tell you how it feels to be pregnant -.-
(okay I think those are my CURRENT pet peeves) 🙂
6. Why did you start blogging?
I was working part-time and started reading LOTS of blogs, so I figured why not start my own, to keep it for me to read years from now!  I especially started writing more once I got pregnant and wanted to remember everything from when I was pregnant!
7. What is your favorite accessory?
I really like things for my hair, like ribbons, or bows or head bands!
8. Cat lover or dog lover?
I love both!!!  BUT I don’t really like other peoples animals, I’m kinda like those people that are like, well I hate all kids except my own, because I don’t really like any animals that I don’t own…sad but true.
9. Anything “quirky” about you (double jointed, can say ABCs backwards…?)
I’m not quirky 🙁  BUT I can drive stick shift…some people can’t so I’ll use that 🙂
10. Do you speak any other languages?
No, I can understand Spanish for the MOST part, BUT I don’t really truly understand everything.
11. What is considered a perfect day for you?
A perfect day would be an extra day off of work, cleaning my house and the weather outside being amazing!  Going out to eat with my love and spending time with our little beasts.  I just love being around my little family 🙂  Oh and knowing that we don’t have to go to work the next day 😀

Welcome back to another Thursday, OHHHH yay!!!!!  I love it when the week goes by fast, ACTUALLY this week did NOT go by fast, BUT it’s Thursday and it’s almost over with, Thank God!
It’s okay that….
…..I was beyond stressed thinking that the husband was going to have to do Jury Duty the entire week before we go on vacation :l  He is an owner operator which means, if he doesn’t go to work he doesn’t get paid…thank god he got let go and they didn’t want him to sit on the jury after all!
…..I haven’t gone grocery shopping in a couple of weeks, I HATE when I have groceries when we leave on vacation because I know they are going to go bad….next week planned meals again!
…..I get easily annoyed when people are OVERLY dramatic!  I refuse to talk to people when they’re being ridiculous
…..I’m OBSESSED with SOA!!!  OMG I love it so much, I’m gonna miss it these four days we are gone, because it’s sooooooo good!  Me & the husband are trying to get through the entire series to catch up so that when the new season comes on we can be right on track.
…..I am super worried about leaving my puppies this weekend, because Marlee & Fox are staying home and Penelope is going to stay with the husbands family….I feel like she’ll be sad without Marlee and I don’t want her to get lost she’s soooooo tiny 🙁
…..Someone MIGHT have stolen my directv box off my front porch, and I really hope it isn’t true!  :/  I put it out there and scheduled USPS to come pick it up and then I got an email from them saying that the item was not as described, and it said total number of packages picked up 0, hmmmm I really really really hope that NO one took the stupid cable boxes, I mean really?  Why would you want them anyway!  AND we share our stairs with only 3 other families and you can’t see our stairs from the street so if someone stole it, they are RIDICULOUS!!!  (fingers crossed that the post office just sent me the wrong email)
…..I am beyond excited to leave on vacation tomorrow!  I love spending time with my family and having 5 days off in a row is a plus too 🙂
…..I am sooooooo much more in love with baby Carter now that I saw him then I was before, it’s so much different when you can actually put a face to the little baby is that is squirming and kicking inside you all day 🙂  LOVE LOVE LOVE him!!!
…..I really need more clothes because MOST of my clothes don’t fit me anymore, especially shirts, that are getting wayyyyyyyy too short :l  BUT I don’t want to buy anymore clothes for myself, I’d rather buy Carter lots of cute stuff!
……I have $25 to spend at Kohls and you better believe I’m going tonight to spend it!  OHHHH ya!  LOVE Kohls Cash & email coupons!! 😀
…..I feel like Summer just got here and now it’s almost over, it makes me sad because summer is USUALLY my favorite time, BUT right now I’m excited for it to leave because that means Fall is here and so is baby Carter 🙂
…..I get annoyed when people tell me “Ugggh it’s cause you’re pregnant!”  NO!  NOT every single thing that annoys me is because I’m pregnant, MAYBE it’s because you’re a dumbass!! -.-
…..some of the bloggers I follow ANNOY me so much, I don’t know why I still read their blogs
…..we had to take Santiago to live at my parents house for a little while 🙁  I’m still sad about it, but he was NOT adjusting to living at the new apartment, I don’t think he liked it and he would just walk around the house crying and crying -.-
….I’m excited to have tomorrow off, even though I have LOTS of things to do!!
….I realized that my baby shower is in ummm 6 weeks, and we haven’t done ANYTHING for it -.-  Need to get on that ASAP!
….I love when we have weekends where we don’t have anything planned and can clean the house from top to bottom, haven’t had one of those in a while…can’t wait for August now!

Okay, now my favorite place to on a normal basis is our ANNUAL family trip!  EVERY SINGLE year for the past THREE years (this year will be the fourth) we go on a family trip and we spend 4 days somewhere together and have the best time!

Wine-I don’t really have a preference but I’m not really a big fan of those sweet wines
Beer-I LOVE coronas with lemon & salt YUMMM
Liquor-Well since all I can think about lately is Margaritas I’m gonna assume those, but I really do like Vodka & 7 up or lemonade & 7&&’s yummm (can you tell it’s been a while since I drank alcohol because I want it all)

If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
hmmm..that’s a though one, I’m obsessed with Kohls!  It possibly might be because I get so many coupons for there and I LOVE their clothes, so probably there because I can get more then just clothes!

What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?

 

Me & the husband met at our VERY FIRST job, we both worked at a public county park called Santa Fe Dam it had a lake and a water play area for kids, it was the BEST job I ever had because it was so much fun!  Everyone that worked there was young & it was so much fun!  The husband & I always talk about how we hope our kids have as fun as a first job as we did because it made the time go by so fast!

Friday Letters

Dear Friday the 13th,
Welcome!!  I don’t know why everyone is so afraid of you, or hates you so much I think you’re the BEST and although I really don’t have anything too big going on tonight I have a feeling it’s gonna be a good day! 🙂
Dear Costco Chocolate Muffins,
I am OFFICIALLY obsessed with you!!  Thank you so MUCH for being so delicious!!  I have enjoyed you almost every day this week, and you are still as delicious on Friday as you were on Monday!
Dear H2O,
 Please stop being so hard to drink, I really need to drink more of you, but for some reason the last couple of weeks it has been more difficult to drink you.
Dear Carter,
I love that you have been moving so much lately!  NOW I can’t wait until I go back to the doctor to hear your heartbeat, only a HUNDRED more days until you’re supposed to arrive!!  I can’t tell you how excited we are!!
Dear Lauren Conrad,
I am re-watching ALL of the hills episodes and they all make me like you EVEN more then I already did, it’s NO wonder I LOVE all your clothes from Kohls!  You’re just so cute!
Dear Spencer Pratt,
You are by far the MOST HATED person I have ever watched on reality TV, I do NOT like you, and I do not think you are a good person, AND I’m pretty positive that you are like that in real life!  You’re lame and I’m so glad that you are NO longer on ANY TV show!!
Dear Husband,
You’re the BEST!!  I love you!  You are the greatest husband that anyone could ask for, and for that I LOVE YOU more then I could ever explain!  Thank you for being you, and loving me, baby Carter & all our beasts unconditionally!!
Dear Homemade Iced Coffee,
You’re the BEST, that’s all!
Dear Penelope,
You are the BEST, and really?  How could you possibly be so freakin cute!?!  I don’t know but somehow you are! P.S. you still need a middle name, we’re working on it don’t you worry.
Dear Marlee Muffin,
I’m glad that you are FINALLY playing with Penelope and making her feel not so lonely now that all of the other puppies are gone. I love watching you play with her, it’s really so cute!
Dear Bills, 
Please pay yourselves, and while you’re at it then please pay yourselves off so I don’t have ANY bills anymore!  K!  Thanks!
Dear My Growing List of Followers,
Have an AMAZING Friday the 13th!!  AND while you’re at it, have a GREAT weekend!!!

Friday Letters

Dear New Apartment,
Only one more week until we get to move into you!!  YAY!!  I can’t wait!
Dear Laundromat,
Oh man, I can not explain to you how much I will NOT miss you, NOPE not ONE itty tiny bit!
Dear Washer & Dryer,
Thank you for being inside our new apartment, quarters are NOT my friend!
Dear Puppies,
Why are you soooooo cute??  I mean seriously, so adorable!  BUT why are you sooooo stinky??  P.S. I’m really going to miss you when you leave 🙁
Dear Penelope,
I really am loving your name it’s so long for a little tiny puppy, but you are sooooo cute, and I just realized that I do NOT have ONE single picture of you, that WILL change this weekend!  But you were cute when you were little too.
Dear Baby Carter,
Oh man, I can feel you are getting bigger in there, only a short 16 weeks until you are here, and I can’t wait!!! 😀  P.S. I didn’t feel you really move around in there on either Monday or Tuesday and I was getting sad, UNTIL yesterday you were moving around a lot in there, AND today you’ve been moving ALL morning LONG, sorry to say but I think you really really liked that cup of noodle I gave you this morning, sorry buddy you can’t have those all the time, but I’m glad you loved it!
Getting HUGE!
Dear Pay Day,
Oh, so nice to see you this week!! 🙂  I do enjoy when you make an appearance BUT why oh why can’t you be for more?  Maybe we’ll work on that in the next two weeks?
Dear Grey’s Anatomy,
OMG!!  HOW did I miss the last two seasons of you!?!  I can’t believe it, I have been catching up on you on Netflix, and I KNOW I’m gonna be super upset when the current season is over because the next season is only on DVD….lameeeee
Dear Starbucks,
I wish you were closer to my job, how about you trade places with McDonalds so I can have a green tea EVERY SINGLE DAY??   Cool?  Thanks!
Dear Hair,
Oh goodness, you REALLY REALLY need a haircut!  LIKE NOW!!!  But, thanks to Pinterest, I have been able to keep you out of my face the last couple of weekends, and not just look like a total boring mess.
Dear Marlee Muffin,
Sometimes, you really really really drive me crazy, especially when you think it’s acceptable to WAKE me up at 6 AM to put you on the bed, I KNOW that I created a MONSTER, by letting you get on the bed for a solid week, and didn’t even care that you were waking me up, BUT really?  You are old enough to be trained to listen, you need to act your age little muffin!  Training starts now, because you can not be acting crazy once Carter gets here!  Okay, promise if you listen we’ll give you the BEST treats!  I’ll even talk the husband into buying you some pig ears, and sticks, cause I KNOW you love them!!
Dear ALL TWELVE of my Followers,
I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend, and just think we get a WHOLE weekend off, AND then we go back for two days and get a break, AND then go back for only TWO days!  YAY!!  Happy weekend before a holiday!!  Have a GREAT hot weekend!  Enjoy the sun, and if you are near water, make sure you jump in it!

It’s Okay Thursday!!

YAYY!!!  It’s Thursday, which means we are ALMOST to the weekend!  WOO HOOO!!
Without further ado….
It’s Okay that….
I’m SUPER DUPER excited to go watch Ted this weekend, it looks HILARIOUS!! let’s hope we actually go see it and don’t say we’re gonna go and then not go, LIKE WE ALWAYS DO!
I am getting more excited to move, but who wants to come pack up all my stuff??  I still have not packed A SINGLE thing and that needs to change ASAP!
The puppies are soooooooo adorably cute, but they must go SOON!!  They are so messy and if you ever thought having ONE puppy was a lot of work, OMG FOUR is CRAZY!!  I’m definitely gonna miss them when they are gone, but I WON’T miss the mess that’s for sure!
I had a terrible morning yesterday, but had a good night 🙂  LOVE when that happens
I am in LOVE with coffee again YAY!!  I thought that I was not going to want it ever again, and I LOVE coffee, nothing is better then waking up early and walking around with a fresh cup of coffee!
I LOVE Costco, I mean who doesn’t really?  Unless you don’t know what it is, or don’t have a card!  It is seriously the BESTplace EVER except for the fact that when we go there we always manage to spend wayyyyy more then we had budgeted for…damn you Costco and your amazing stuff!
I can’t wait for the 4th of July, but I really really wish that it wasn’t on a freakin’ WEDNESDAY!! :/ Who schedules a holiday on the day in the MIDDLE of the week!?!  So dumb!  Ehh…at least we’ll go to work for two days, and have to go back for two days right?
I love lighting fireworks!  Sparklers are probably still my favorite 😀
I slept good for two nights in a row, and I think I could get used to this!
I think it’s weird that it’s SOOOO bright at 6:30!!  WTF so weird that it’s so sunny!  I wake up every single morning at 6:30 thinking that for sure it has to be WAY later because it’s way too bright for so early in the morning!
I haven’t gone grocery shopping, and I kinda don’t want to, since we’re moving next weekend and that would mean we would have to transport all that stuff to the new place
I FINALLY got upgraded to a gold card at Starbucks, BUT I’m pretty sure I’m never going to get it, because it takes over a month and we are moving in one week.  Let’s hope the post office changes our address!
I’m excited that I just found out that I can change my address online, YAY!!
I realized that I’m going on Vacation in FOUR weeks, and then 2 and a 1/2 months after that Baby Carter will be here, I can’t believe how fast it is coming!!!
I am super excited for all the things that are coming in the coming months 🙂
ALWAYS watch the news in the morning and NEVER pay attention to the traffic girl because she’s kinda annoying!
I am super grateful for the AMAZING husband, every day (even the days he’s a grouchy ass in the morning) he makes my smile 😀
Santiago has been driving me CRAZY recently jumping on EVERYTHING, does anyone want to borrow a cute siamese cat??  I promise he’s really cute and really loving, but he will GET INTO EVERYTHING!!  AND he definitelythinks knocking things off counters, book shelves, etc is super funny!
I’m excited to go to Disneyland next month, YAY for seeing Cars Land @ 7 AM!!!
I realized that MOST of this post was about things that I’m excited for, I think today is going to be a good day 🙂
Until Next Week Friends,
Happy Thursday!! 😀

Friday Letters

Dear New iPhone App (Photo Editor-the free one),
I am kinda obsessed with you!  JUST a little, tiny bit.  I mean puppies in funny get ups, how can anyone NOT be obsessed??  I think it’s HILARIOUS!! 😀
Dear OPI nail polish,
I am currently OBSESSED with you!  I do not know what color you are, but you are so cute!  So sparkely and I need these nails like NOW, thanks!
Dear Fox,
Why oh why are you so cute?!?!  I get so mad when people see Marlee & say “aww that dogs cute” and then see you and say “Awww but he’s soooooo much cuter” mean people don’t know that dogs have feelings too!  BUT idk you are pretty freakin cute!!
Dear Husband,
You seem to be driving me MORE and MORE crazy every single day!  BUT I love you so much! YOU are AMAZING!  (as if you already didn’t know that) I can’t wait for you to actually FEEL Carter move, since something is seriously wrong with your hand and you can’t feel him yet.  WEIRDO!
P.S. This reminds me of us 🙂  Don’t worry, you will be with me when I’m SUPER wrinkly, from  not using sunblock and you’re going to love it!
Dear Hair,
SERIOUSLY!!  What the heck is going on!?!  You are being ridiculous LATELY!!  WHY must you be so dry??!?  >.<  there is NO way that it could be because you haven’t gotten cut since December!!  TO DO:  Get hair cut!
Dear Carter,
You are AMAZING, I can’t believe all the things I can feel you doing now, you really make my life complete and you’re not even here yet!  Yesterday when you had the hiccups I could not stop laughing it was hilarious!!  I had to ask Auntie Steph if what I was feeling was what I thought it was, and yep it was, so funny that you could even get hiccups when you’re so tiny!  Can’t wait for you to start moving more AND for you to finally get here! 🙂
Dear Bank Account,
Seriously?!  Again this week you want to be empty?!?  Get your shit together and stop being so loose with your money!
Dear Doctor,
It’s weird that you make me wear a hospital bracelet to see the doctor, but I guess preggers people are known to faint, so I’m assuming that’s why?  ALSO thank your nurse for telling me that I would NOT have to do the glucose test the same way that everyone says I have to and getting my hopes up, ONLY for you to tell me this week, that I DO in fact have to the REAL test that everyone talks about and HATES NOOOOOOOOO :-O
source
Dear 4th of July,
I totally forgot that we get you off at work YAY!!  Too bad you’re in the MIDDLE of the week!!  AND too bad we’re not going to be moved into our new apt by time you get here.  BUT don’t you fret I have been wanting to make a funfetti cake for weeks now and I’m thinking that on this day shall be the PERFECT time to make one!  JUST like this one!  LOVE!!!
So festive right!?!
source
Dear Baby Shower,
I can’t wait for you to get here!  You’re gonna be so much fun!

Dear Weekend,
SO glad you finally made it!  YAY to not having TOO much to do this weekend!  WOO HOO those are the BEST weekends!
Dear Bloggy Friends,
Have a FANTASTIC weekend!!!  YAY!!  We made it through the FIVE long days of being at work, and now are rewarded with TWO days off!!  Enjoy it!  Oh and HAPPY FIRST WEEKEND OF SUMMER!!!  It’s officially here!

It’s Okay Thursday

Hellooooooo, can you believe that it’s THURSDAY again??
Okay, so it’s okay…..
….I’m dying of thirst, but don’t want to drink TOO much water because then I’ll have to pee in 5 minutes.
….that they called me yesterday to RESCHEDULE my appointment that I had scheduled for today, and when I told them morning or late afternoon they scheduled me for the SAME exact time!  Wouldn’t it have been easier to just say “Hey, your doctors out, so & so is going to see you instead”
….I really can’t wait for July to get here, JULY did you hear me??  You’re taking incredibly too long to make your appearance!
….I HATE my new work schedule!!  AND every single day I want to ask my boss to switch me back, but then I get nervous and continue with the WORST schedule EVER!
….I want ice cream EVERY SINGLE day!  I mean, it’s really not for me, it’s for Carter, he’s like his Dad he LOVES it!
….that the security guard at my work is seriously starting to get on my nerves, WHY must he always ask me a BILLIONquestions!??!
….I thought RHOC was SUPER hilarious last night when they were making such a HUGE deal about the lady eating the cake!!  I mean it was ridiculous and that girl is just gross BUT I LOVED that they kept yelling “SHE ATE THE BOW!!!”  It still makes me laugh today thinking of Heather’s face when she gave her interview, and her Husband’s face when she told him, “WHAT!?!  She ATE the bow!?!”  OMG who said the housewives are only drama?  CLEARLY there’s comedy too!
….I ate a footlong the other day, when I had full intentions on bringing the other side to work for lunch the next day (again, not my fault, Carter just thinks he’s starving)
….that I booked an appt for a 4-D ultrasound, even though I said I would NEVER get one!  (I want to be 100% sure that Carter is a boy!)
….we have a lot of stuff coming up in the next month actually from NOW until Carter gets here!
….that sometimes I try to delete apps from my phone because really I have WAYYY too many, but then I don’t end up deleting ANY because I  mean I might need the Spanish again one day, and it’s better this way.
….I always forget to change my desk calendar at work so EVERYDAY when I come in I spend 1/2 the morning thinking it’s the day before, TODAY I thought it was Wednesday until lunch!
….that I haven’t really cooked a meal at all this week, it’s the husband’s fault really!  I keep telling him let’s go to the store, and he NEVER wants to!
….don’t want the puppies to go to their new homes BUT they are starting to make a huge mess!
….that the puppies are so cute, I retract my above statement, they can stay FOREVER
….Santiago has been driving us NUTS lately!  ANYONE want to borrow a cute Siamese cat??  (he’s even driving the puppies CRAZY, last night he went in their cage, and ALL of them started growling at him to get OUT! FUNNIESTthing that happened all day)
….that I really really really want to CHANGE my blog name, but haven’t come up with the PERFECT name yet!  SOON!!!
….that I don’t really realize how much I type everything in upper & lower case letters, until I try to write a work email like that (oops)
….I’m OBSESSED with emoji’s!  I seriously love using them!  PROBABLY why I’m always typing happy faces on here, because I am deprived of emojis

Speed Date-Linky Party!!

Hellooooooooo…and welcome to another link up par-tay!
I am linking up with this little momma
for a
speed dating party!
It’s fun so if you want to join go on and head over to her blog!
Here goes my speed date!
I have the most amazing husband in the whole world, one that will make me raviolis for dinner even if he hates them because i love them! 🙂
I am catholic and try to go to church as much as possible, me and the husband were married in a church the same one I did BOTH my baptism & communion at…the same church I went to when I was young, and I can’t wait to get Baby L baptized in the same church!
The husband and I have known eachother for over ten years!  and yet have only been dating for 4, yes ladies and gentlemen we were ONLY friends nothing else, I really think it’s the reason we work so well together, we never kept things from eachother because we couldnt!  we already knew the good and the bad, sometimes when were at home, i’ll look at him and think “what the heck?  how did i end up marrying the dude who i used to wrestle with at work?”  it always amazes me!  but makes for an incredible love story it’s making my eyes get teary just thinking about how amazing it was (that or it’s the pregnancy hormones?)
I am obsessed with my family, they are that amazing!  Literally!  If you want to know more about them check this out!!  I’m sure you’ll love them too!
I can’t wait for Baby L to get here, and even though I get anxiety thinking about where we’re gonna live, and how we’re gonna do it, I get so excited thinking about it!  I can’t wait to see what 1/2 of the husband & 1/2 of me is going to look like!
I have THREE beasts that reside inside my home, Mr. Fox McCloud, Miss Marlee Muffin & Mr. Santiago Ignacio, and I talk allllllllll about them in this post! 😀  and have recently added to our household FOUR tiny puppies the product of Mr McCloud & Miss Muffin (yes they’re married!)  and you can see how cute they’re here!!  I love them, and I still want to keep them all!
My husband laughs at me when I tell him something exciting that happened to one of the people who’s blog I read!  JERK!
I have my bachelors degree in teaching, a teaching credential and a masters in education and still can’t find a full time teaching job in CA it’s really ridiculous!  So ridiculous that often times I think “why didnt’ i listen to my dad when he told me to be a business major, so I could make lots of money” 🙁  BUT I love teaching, I pray everday sometimes opens up for me, I guess the perfect position just hasn’t found me yet!
I was in a sorority for three years, and when people talk bad about them it makes me so mad!  It was the MOST fun I have ever had in my whole life and I would recommend joining a NATIONAL sorority/fraternity to anyone!  It made college that much more fun!  And memories for a lifetime!
I lived without health insurance for seven months and almost every single day i worried about it.  it was so frustrating and sad, I would often think that if something terrible would happen (car accident) we would be so poor we would never be able to afford a house or anything that we want to accomplish in the years to come.  Therefore, anyone that doesn’t understand the importance of universal heathcare drives me crazy, because every single one of these people i have met, HAVE HEALTHCARE 🙁
I am obsessed with my iPhone.  Litearlly I could not ever imagine myself buying a different type of phone EVER!  Actually I’m obsessed with all things Apple related, I just love all of their stuff so much!!  Next up new iMac!!  I have been drowling over the HUGE screen for years!  and once we move we have decided to finally invest in one!  😀
I LOVE football!  And am often explaining this to the husband, he doesn’t love football so much!  I don’t know how he couldn’t it’s so much fun!
I like when people spell their kids names a unique way like instead of an “i” putting a “y” or vice versa, BUT I can’t stand when parents try TOO hard to make thier normal kids names ridiculous!  Ashley turns into Ashilieey…way over dramatic for my taste and as a teacher/substitute teacher it’s kinda annoying for both me and the poor kid
I lived in Fresno for 3 1/2 years and even though it was super hot in summer and super cold in winter it was so much fun!  I’m so glad that I picked there to go to college!  Go Bulldogs!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE reading blogs, I think it is so much fun…even if my husband things I’m weird!!  My fave cousin knows exactly how I feel because we follow a lot of the same people and will call/text eachother when one of our faves gets some amazing news!  🙂
