365 Days

1 year
12 months
52 weeks
365 days
8760 hours
525,600 minutes ago.

We said I do.
And two became one.

Thru all the ups, the downs, the laughter, and the tears.
We've been thru it together.
As a team. As husband and wife.
And I couldn't be happier.

And for all you hopeless romantics out there,
i'll leave you with this link to a post for an incredible proposal.
Trust me, you'll want to read this.

I Believe...

i can fly....
i believe i can touch the skyyyyy...
i think about it every night and d----

oh hai!
sorry i was jammin' out to some R Kelly 
(you know you were singing right there along with me)

 Today I'm linking up with Erin at Living in Yellow!

And now that i just posted the actual Link up name, i see it actually says "I Believe IN..."
whatevs... i still enjoyed my solo jam session.

I believe in speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.

i believe in coffee with LOTS of creamer in it!

i believe that having a pet is a ton of responsibility but is also one of the most rewarding things in life.
i'm sure the same can be said about human children too!

i believe in the power of prayer.

i believe that good things come to those who wait!

i believe in 2nd chances. and sometimes even 3rd.
but after 3 strikes, you are OUT!

i believe in warm sweaters, fuzzy slippers and a good book on a cold day!

i believe in belly laughs

i believe in dressing up your dog for Halloween!

and i believe this guy's song WILL get you bopping your head

Have a great day!

Dog Shaming

I came across this hilarious website the other day and know a few canine kids that definitely need to be called out for bad behavior!

These are some of my favorites!

Being that Scooter had the runs in NINE spots on our carpet yesterday and Kadee ate half of my parent's couch a few months ago (yes, half of it. I kid you not) I think these pups need to go on this website of shame!

Check out this fun site if you're bored!

And... don't forget to enter the giveaway for some cool stuff!
Contest ends tomorrow!

Friday Letters

Linking up today for Friday's Letters with Ashley!

Dear Wegman's: We have such a love/hate relationship. I love all your yumminess and variety, but i HATE how crowded you are at all times and how I have to push past rude Manalapanite women who think they own the store. Dear Honey Boo Boo: I am obsessed with your little red neck chunky bottom... I tried to start calling hubs "Sugar Bear" but he doesn't seem to like it too much. Dear Cablevision: Thank you for getting yourself some NFL network! You are now saving my wallet 90 buckaroos a month since I can drop DirectTV. Dear iPhone 5: i want you... but do i want you bad enough to pre-order you? Decisions, decisions. Dear G: Thank you for being such a great hubby -- you are SO hard-working and you rock my socks off! Dear Readers: Go, enter the giveaway! Soon! And have a happy weekend!

Give It Away, Give It Away, Give It Away NOW!

As promised, and without further ado, its GIVEAWAY TIME!

i am SO SO grateful to all of y'all (yes, i sound southern)
for taking time to read and comment on my lil ol blog.

I started this blog as a way to record what was happening in my life, my thoughts, my feelings, and along the way I have "met" so many new friends! And i hope to meet so many more (any of you lurkers out there feel free to drop me a line! i'd love to hear from you!)

OK, so here's what you'll get if you win...

I know everyone has been raving about ELF, so I figured I'd throw this little goodie in the bag... subsequently, i also bought myself one, and i LOVE it. Such a good bargain and my lashes are looking FIERCE!

A classic - Essie Ballet Slippers... perfect neutral pink, goes with everything!

You all know i'm a hello kitty girl (#asianlove) and i also love lip balm, so what better than to combine the two!

Last but not least, this Loreal LeGloss in Peach Fuzz.
i have a MAC one just like it (though they discontinued it) so once that runs out, i'll definitely be hopping on the bandwagon and getting me some of this!

So, here's how to enter.

1. Be a follower on GFC of this blog
2. Leave me a comment telling me you're a follower.

Easy Peasy right?

I'll pick the winners next Monday!

Empire State of Mind...

I had my giveaway post all lined up for you today
and then I saw the date.


So, today's post is just going to be a simple reminder to 
love harder, 
laugh longer,
and hold onto your dreams just a little bit more.

Because we never know what tomorrow will bring.

We will NEVER forget.

Back in Business

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for all your sweet well wishes! I am FINALLY back in business and feeling a WHOLE lot better! What a catastrophe, and then coupled with the disaster that I had to deal with returning to work - any of you who saw my FB posts would know I was NOT a very happy camper these last two weeks dealing with - as i quoted to my boss "what's worse than a shit show, cuz that's what this is".

But at last, things seem to be returning to normal (or as normal as they can be for me!!)
And now I can finally catch up on the gazillion blogs i'm behind on, 
the housework i've neglected, 
the reality TV i haven't watched (hello, married to Jonas and honey boo boo) 
and I'm hoping to FINALLY post my giveaway this week!

I know you're all dying to know what it is!

So bear with me as I clean up the disaster called my LIFE...
and i'll hit ya up real soon!
