Random Wednesday

Today’s Random Wednesday is inspired by two other blogs I read…

What have I Google'd lately?

1. Giant Ant Insects- Coy found a bug in the house and claimed it was a grasshopper, but I swear to you it was a ginormous ant. So, I decided to Google “Giant Ant Insects”

2. Money Tree Plant Care- We own a money tree and it has grown so much over the summer ever since we moved it outside but recently the nights have become cooler so I decided to move it inside but now it’s beginning to die. So, I was hoping this would help, but it didn’t the tree is still dying. Any suggestions?

3. Curly hair styles- I’m sick of my hair… I used to love taking pictures but nowadays I hate my hair so much that I hate the way I look. I want long hair for my wedding but gosh it’s such a mess!!

4. Fall Fashion for 2010- Well, I needed inspiration and I knew Google could lead me the right directions.

My Tentative Christmas Wish List… I haven’t decided where from yet, but I know I want them.

1. Espresso Machine

2. Nice, non-girly Sheets (almost all my sheets have hot pink on them)

3. Curtains for our kitchen (the people in the apartments behind us can see right in to our kitchen and have been known to watch us eat dinner)

4. A new rug for our living room (I bought one for $20 three years ago and now it is beginning to look thin and worn out).

Have a great Wednesday!!

Hello Readers,
So, since I have a fun filled weekend ahead of me I need to make sure I know exactly what I'm going to wear. Lets start with Saturday evening, Coy and I are attending my work party and then heading out to Octoberfest, I am feeling inspired to wear my jean leggings. I loved this girl's outfit but I'll probably wear my boots and add a jacket.

Then on Sunday evening we are headed out to Hard Rock and I am thinking leopard print!

Ignore my hair in that picture... I had been karoke'ing and working up a sweat.... Anywho, haven't decided yet what to put with my leopard top, but I'll figure it out.
I'm getting pretty darn pumped about this weekend. Does anyone else have big plans this weekend? I hope so!!
Thanks for reading!!

Random Wednesday.

Greetings! We have reached yet another Random Wednesday and I'm wicked excited about it. lol
  1. It's cold outside. Like so cold, that you wouldn't want to leave the bed because the temperature outside made the inside cold too... And I can't turn on the heat because it will just get warm outside and then the house will be hot. It's a hard decision.
  2. I leave on vacation in 5 weeks! I can't wait. No work for me or school for Coy for 4 days!
  3. I'm exhausted. I got a call at 5:45am asking if I had left last night with the Shift keys in my pocket. I did. My fault!.. But I decided that since I was up I'd go ahead and workout. BIG MISTAKE! I'm so tired and I work tonight, so there's no going to bed early... I also can't slip in a little nap either because I'm at the Office now (meaning my desk job) and I have to be at the store (meaning Starbucks) at 1:30.
  4. I'm probably not going to purchase a Halloween costume since I work Halloween weekend... unless we get to wear costumes at work?!
  5. I'm off this weekend. I am pumped! Saturday night we are going to Octoberfest and Sunday we are staying at Hard Rock Hotel since Coy earned a free night. I'm so excited...

My Addiction

My addiction started when I worked at Lavish (the store I used to work at) and I used to get up every morning before work and get my Grande White Chocolate Mocha, 2 pumps, nonfat. The problem is it got really pricey, really fast so I, of course, forced myself to stopped. I've reached that point again now that I work there and my favorite drinks have expanded to Caramel Macchiato or Hazelnut Lattes and so much more... So, now I must have Starbucks at least once a day if not two or three times a day. I realize on days I work this isn’t a huge expense but the Starbucks that’s on my way to my morning job is the Starbucks in Target which means no discount… It’s just... coffee at home isn’t as good anymore. I actually have been getting up making Coy coffee and having a cup myself and then leaving for work and making a quick stop of SB before heading into the office. Some days I don't go by Starbucks right away because Coy and I decide to lounge around the house for awhile but by 2 o'clock I need my latte.... So, after some long hard thinking I've decided not to stop my addiction but instead ask for an espresso machine for Christmas. lol

Thanks for reading!! Random Wednesday tomorrow.

Happy Birthday, Jenny. I love you and hope you have an amazing Birthday and many to follow.

Happy Monday!

Where do I begin?..

My weekend went well. We went to the fair on Friday, after seeing the play “The Insanity of Mary Girard” which Union High School performed and a barista from my Starbucks had a leading role in. At the fair, we ate a bunch of junk and rode two rides (yes, only two we are too poor to buy more tickets). I, of course didn’t take pictures, but I found this one…

Saturday I overslept and nearly missed my appointment at David’s Bridal. We arrived 25 minutes late but they didn’t seem too mad. My mom bought me my dress, slip, shoes, head piece and garter. I would post pictures but Coy reads my posts sometimes so you will simply have to wait… I am getting so excited. I just can’t wait any longer. We get married in 7months and 17 days (I have the countdown on my phone)… After my dress shopping, we put the dress in a hiding spot and then my mom and I had lunch together. The day was pretty boring after that since I worked all night.

Yesterday was my lazy day. Coy and I had to teach at church but after that he had to study so I just ran up to work, dropped off some cupcakes and headed to the movie with Jenny and Matt (two of my favorite people). We saw “Life as We Know It” starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. It was adorable… Then, Coy and I had dinner together last night.

I’m off at Starbucks until Wednesday and since Coy studied all weekend, we’ve decided that these next two nights we will enjoy our time together before it’s back to work for me and back to studying for him. I’m so excited…

My little sister turns 19 in 3days. It makes me feel old.

Thanks for reading! Leave me comments and any questions you may have.

Random Wednesdays: Fall Edition

Helloooo Readers!

It is yet another Wednesday and this week I'm FALL CRAZY. I realize I keep talking about how much I love Fall but I don't feel like the message is across yet! So, here I go...
  • For Halloween I'm debating between Marilyn Monroe and a 50's housewife. WHICH ONE?OR...
  • I really want to throw a Halloween Party but between my work and Coy's School, there is just no time to plan one. Plus, last year everyone wanted to party hop and here I was at my party with all these activities planned.
  • When's a good time to carve my pumpkin? I want it nice and cute for Halloween weekend...
  • I also think I'm going to do spider webs on my front door... Probably Saturday and Sunday because I bet a lot of kids are going to trick or treat early this year since Hallows Eve falls on a Sunday
  • I'm ready for the leaves to change and it to really look like Fall.
  • Coy and I are planning to do our engagement pictures the weekend of November 13 and I hope it looks like Fall by then... and that I look skinny by then. lol
  • Fall Fashion... need I say more.
I love FALL!!
Thanks for reading, loves!

Med School is Hard.

Hello Everyone,

Med School is stressing me out and I'm not the one going to class... It's just... well... Coy studies all the time, then he takes his test and studies some more. I feel like there's rarely a time when he isn't studying. On top of that, he told me yesterday that the only time he ate was when I made him, because he was simply too busy. How can you be so busy you forget to eat? I can be knee deep in work but you better believe when my tummy starts growling I hear it.

I started with a personal trainer. Our first day was Thursday and I fainted on him. YEP! I didn't eat beforehand and because I'm hypoglycemic I just blacked out. I'm fine. He's fine... He didn't make me finish the workout on Thursday. So, we started over again yesterday. I made it through my entire work out and I'm sore today. The plan: to lose 16lbs by December. Plan after that: Stay fit/get toned.

Let's be honest here... I'm getting baby fever like crazy. I dream about it nearly every night. But..I'm not sure why the feeling has gotten so unbearable these past few weeks. A little over a year ago, I was all about loving kids but not wanting any of my own and suddenly everything changes. The other day, Coy and I were talking about a guy he goes to Med School with, who he and his wife are having their 2nd child and we were like "Oh my gosh, how will they manage two kids during such a busy time in their lives?"... Yet, I'm a tad jealous of them. I guess, I've gone a tad crazy, because if we are being honest here (which we are). Coy and I can't even think about that right now. I work two jobs, he doesn't even have time to eat, and hello, how would we afford a baby? Oh and here's the biggest one, we are 7.5months away from our wedding.
