Wednesday, October 26, 2011 I am.


Has it really been since JULY since I've posted?!?!?!?! Well, I suck. Big time.

There has been SO much happening in my life lately. I started my new job on August 1st and I absolutely LOVE IT! Like, can't even begin to describe how much. My coworkers are amahhhhhzing and my boss is great as well! I still miss my old office and it's been about a minute since I've been in there to visit! It's hard to believe my "90 days" are almost over. But I've never been so happy about a decision before and I thank God everyday for this great opportunity.

I know about 10000000001 people who are pregnant right now! What is the deal people?!?!?! I'd love to get down on whatever they're drinking but that'll still have to wait. I'm so happy for all my friends/family that are expecting and can't wait to snuggle those sweet babes!

Brogan turned 3 in September and has been a pistol ever since! Oh my Lordy does this kid keep us on our toes! With my new job, I have Fridays off so it's nice to spend 3 straight days with my boy (and hubs on the weekend). But sometimes, by Sunday, this momma is READY for Monday morning!!! We decided, with Brogan's help of course, that he'd be a train conductor for Halloween and this kid is SO excited! This Saturday our zoo has what they call 'Boo at the Zoo' where you can trick or treat around the zoo. We are taking B in the morning and his daddy is even making train costumes for us to wear. Brogan doesn't know it yet but I'm stoked to see how excited he'll be!

I am so so tired that I don't know what else to write about. Hopefully I can get better with this..but let's not hold our breath.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

I'm a Beast!

When my husband showed me the house that would be ours after we got married, I was extremely worried. This house was a P.O.S. Granted, it had been gutted so of course it was not as 'sexy' (can a house be sexy? I dunno.) as I had hoped. But they did a wonderful job at making this house really be SEXY! Haha! So jump forward 5 years: we now have a child and way too much stuff for this 2 bedroom/no basement or storage house. Our loft area (that I once had a vision of a cute little nook for reading/office/movie watching) has sorta turned in to a storage area. We finally got rid of this GINORMOUS desk we had and that helped open up the loft a TON! My parents gave us a cute little desk that used to be my grandma's and it is an absolutely perfect fit. However, with all the moving around of furniture to get that big a** desk out of here, the loft again turned in to a cluttered mess and it was just U.G.L.Y. (You ain't got no alibi! -- yeah, I totally just typed that.)

Yesterday, I had enough of the clutter. I attacked this loft like a BEAST! And I dominated sho (<--I say this A. LOT. Like too much. But what can ya do?). I moved SO. MUCH. HEAVY. STUFF (ex: a couch with a hide-a-bed in it). And anyone who knows me, knows I am not a manual labor type girl. I don't like to get dirty and I HATE to sweat, which I do a lot lately cause A) It's hotter that Haites in Kansas this summer and B) I've had a child. Anywho. I'm so proud of my handy work! I moved some of Brogan's toys from the living room up here and he loves it! It's his own little play area. He can watch his movies up here and play with some of his favorite toys. There are a few things that need a 'place' or stuff we probably could get rid of, but for now it's cozy and comfy and it works. I'd show you pictures but I have yet to do that. Lame, I know.

It's amazing how rearranging a room or just tackling a project that has been on the back burner can make you feel so good! And it's a great way to handle stress...not that I would have any right now. *insert sarcasm*

I'm am, however, happy to have my cute little nook for reading, an office, and a play area for Brogan.

TGIF Tomorrow is Suckie Friday

Tomorrow is not a Friday I'm looking forward to. Weird, right? Normally Friday is the day people can't wait for throughout the week! I'm normally one of them. But tomorrow, I'm not.

Tomorrow is my last day at my current job. I've been working at this office for 8 years and have honestly loved it. It's ultimately going to be the hardest day of my life (so far). I'm so freakin' grateful for my boss and his family. They have treated me like a member of their family and been there for me and my family. My boss is like a dad to me and he has been more than understanding of my decision. I know I'll always be welcome in the office and whatnot but it won't be the same.

I am, however, excited for tomorrow a tiny bit because it's an excuse to have a FOOD DAY! And those of you who know me, know I LURVE me some food....for reals. They actually give me a hard time at work regarding food days and my on going love affair with them.

So, as horribly emotional as tomorrow might least I'll have the food to keep me happy! HAHA!

No More Binky For Piggy, or Brogan.

One of our fave books right now is "No More Pacifier For Piggy" but we change the words. We say No More Binkie for flows better and Brogan calls his pacifier a binkie.


Since Saturday, Brogan has asked maybe once a day for his binkie. He doesn't cry and whine about it anymore; just asks where it is. He's been sleeping through the night just fine and naps are getting a tad bit better. I'm SO super proud of our little guy! I think that Saturday for his "week anniversary", I'm gonna do something fun with him!

I'm gonna leave you with some pictures that have become my favorites lately!

I Don't Do Change

Yep. Second post this week...back to back. WHAT WHAT?!?!? <--I don't know.

So I just got a text from one of my best friends, Jenna. She doesn't know how emotional I've been (re: leaving my job of 8 years for something completely knew and different) this last week. But yet she tells me "I know this week is going to make you sad, and possibly question your decision to leave, but keep your chin up and remember you will be going to a place that you will love what you do!" Instant tears folks. Instant. I know I'm making a great decision for myself, my family, and for the future. But holy freakin' cow, it's SO hard to imagine me not sitting behind this desk next week. And for the weeks to come. This has been a safe place for me. I don't do change very well. But we all grow up and move on and I'm not the only one in the universe who's ever gone through this.

Before the text, I also got an email from Jenna this morning regarding a new song I should download. Totally made my morning as well! It's titled "Booty Work" by T-Pain. Very inspirational if you ask me....haha! I told her that I wanted to dance like those girls when I grow up (b.t.dubs: there is a ghetto girl inside this little white girl). It's talent ya'll...pure. talent. Look it up on YouTube. Trust me.

Anywhos. Thanks Jenna for helping me in more ways than one! LOVE YOU OODLES AND OODLES!
