I am getting my hair cut by someone new tomorrow and I am prettttty nervous about the situation.  With curly hair you just never know what you are getting yourself into.  I made sure that she has cut curly hair because sometimes they forget that it will shrink up.  Yikes.  I am also getting it colored because my hair has decided to act 30 years older than the rest of my body and I am already getting white hairs.  Maybe it is the frustration from my students not doing their homework.  Don’t even get me started on that.  I thought I was going to turn into the crazy mean teacher today… it wasn’t pretty.  And either are these haircuts; I hope this isn’t me tomorrow at 4:30.

Lord, help me if I turn out that way.  Actually, Lord, help us all if I turn out like that.

In other non-exciting news, I have come to the conclusion that I lead a hellaciously boring life.  Poor Jeremy… no wonder he just bought a jeep to restore.  No, seriously, he did last night.  It’s a beast.  I work, workout, blog, eat, craigslist, and read on a daily basis.  Weekends we are always having fun but during the week I feel like a hermit.  Is that bad?  Maybe that is normal?  I hope Jeremy doesn’t totally regret marrying someone who seems to be as boring as I am.  Oh well… ‘for better or for worse’…sucka.

Wish List

If you are thinking about what to buy me for my birthday in March… please see pictures below.  Erika Brunson would be at the top of my list; just FYI.

Do you see the common theme in these photos??  If you have some chairs like those that need to find a new home = we are that new home.  Not a problem.

On book 10 =)  I am really making progress, don’t you think?  I wish someone would read these books with me so I can have someone to laugh about.  As much as Jeremy loves to hear about Lula; he just doesn’t seem to grasp just how funny she is.

For Future Reference

While google searching today I found some lovely nurseries that I wouldn’t mind having one day.  Actually, so are a bit much…but you get the drift.  And, no, I am not pregnant nor are we thinking about getting pregnant anytime soon.   Sorry folks.

And, if I need a babysitter, I need to contact this guy.  I mean he finds babies all the time.  It only makes sense.

Finished Product

As you know, we got fabulous new carpet.  I almost slept on it last night; not even kidding.  It is that soft and amazing.  I love it.

Here are hideous before pictures.  Brace yourself.

Scary huh?  So, the process began to empty the rooms/take items off the furniture so that the guys could move everything.  Yikes.  What a process.  Why do we have so much stuff?  And, we even cleaned out our closets over Christmas.

Okay so here is Jeremy helping getting all my shoes and stuff in the bathroom.  Well, I noticed how loverly his tushie looked in those jeans.  So….. I snapped a photo.  Or tried to.

Anywhom!  Here are the results.  We are so happy!

Lastly, I have been eyeballing a jacket at Nordstrom’s Rack for quite sometime.  It is Marc Jacobs and BEAUTIFUL!  I wish the picture did it justice, but it doesn’t (the buttons are gold and you can’t even tell).  It was out of my price range (I am a bargain shopper to the max) and I thought it will go on sale one day.  One day was Friday, my friends!  $50 bucks!!  Did you hear the Heavenly bells ringing, as I did?  Hope so.  So many great things for this weekend.

That’s fun


Since my school was cancelled for no ice on the ground (and I have to work on Saturday now.. THANK YOU), I got to do some major Craigslisting.  And, I actually found a very simple antique looking chair for $15.  So, I snatched that sucker up asap.  Here is what it looked like before.


  We ran to Home Fabrics and Rugs and got two fabrics to pick from.  That is my new favorite store; they have the BEST prices and so much to choose from.  I found out that they have free upholstery classes, sewing classes, etc… fun!!  So I am going to start going to those bad boys.  Anywhom, I got this fabric that I am going to save for another project.

  So, after giving the chair a good clean, putting on new foam because the other one was basically gone (gross), and new fabric… here is our ‘new’ chair!  What do you think?!

Animal print never gets old for me!!  I love it… although this is the ONLY animal print in my house.  Odd.  I just now realized that. 

Should I paint the chair?  I don’t think we want to right now… I really like all the colors that the showing now; but…???

Hallelujah, Lord Almighty!

Brace yourself people…… we are getting CARPET!  You heard right, carpet.  After months of begging/complaining/annoying Jeremy, he caved and we went to Lowes.  See, my tactics worked.  Lowes came today to get measurements and then we will get the quote and place the order.  You can’t beat their 12 month no interest credit card; plus you get 10% off.  Did I also mention that they are charging us only $40 to install?!  Ridiculous!  Ahhh….. I am excited.  That is not the carpet we are getting, but I thought I would add pictures for funzies.  I will take pictures when we actually get it installed.


American Idol starts next week.  Is anyone else super pumped?  Is it bad that I still watch this show?  Whatever, it is entertaining!  Speaking of entertaining, I am almost done with book 8 of the series.  I am slowing down… not that Stephanie Plum doesn’t make me laugh, because she most certainly does.  But, school is back and it is now TAKS season (even though it is in April); so now I am just waiting until spring break and then SUMMER!!

AND, remember how my poor Jetta was attacked by my garage?  I remember it like it was yesterday, highly traumatic for everyone/thing involved.  Well, Jeremy and his dad worked on Jetty’s scratches this weekend and it looks as good as new (almost).  I swear Jetty smiles now when we are taking a cruise down the street.  She is back to her spunky personality that I have missed so dearly.  Thanks boys, we appreciate you!
