Am I the only one?!

Am I the only one that when they're REALLY bored goes through all their old blog posts?
Oh you don't do that?
Yeah, me either.
Well Ok I do.
And I realized I never put pics of my kitchen up here...

Will post again once I paint!

Am I the only one that has 2 pups that are this cute?!
Yet at the same time a HUGE pain in the bum!
Am I the only one that has a heart possibly TOO big!
I'm getting a new roommate!
My dear cousin Cody just got a job in Logan and needs a place to stay until he finds an apartment up there.
Well of course I offered!
I'm excited to have some of MY family in the house!
Yet, I need a wee bit more femininity in the household!
I have...

My AMAZING fiance
His brother.
My future BIL.
My cute pups
My super fun cousin Cody
he is moving in this weekend which is also the weekend we have...
Sir Nephew!
Am I the only one that is SICK of the snow?!
Go away snow and cold!
Am I the only one that wishes I was here right now?!

Yeah, didn't think so!
Hurry summer!
(especially JUNE 11th!)


Wow it's been a while since I've done one of these.
Yesterday I had a very sad experience and I'm not quite over it yet but these pictures make me smile!

This is a RANDOM picture I didn't even know I had.
I found it going through some old boxes on a disc labeled cheer photos.
I love it I think it's hilarious.
It's from my senior year but not sure which part of the year.
Brooke, me, and Samantha
Now this next one is from cheer camp that year I believe.
haha me and Megan
And one more.
This is the seniors that same year.
Katie, me, Megan and Sam
I don't really like to admit this, but I miss cheer!
I miss the game days and I miss my friends!
Don't miss high school or the drama that sometimes came with cheer, but I do miss all the good times!

Trying to describe the dress of my dreams

So for QUITE A WHILE now
I have known EXACTLY how I want my dress to look.
My mom informed me that it has been her dream to make our wedding gowns.
So now I have the challenge of describing what I want
vs. finding what I want.
Think it would be better right?
I get the dress of my dreams because all I have to do is describe it.
Easier said than done.
I have said things like...
I love this neckline but want longer sleeves
I like this but want it a little fuller.
And no bow.
I love this neckline but it doesn't
have to be ALL lace...
I want this but WHITE
I figured I had painted a pretty clear picture.
But any patterns we looked at just weren't exactly what I had alway envisioned.
We finally found one that I agreed would work.
We went to the bridal gathering on Saturday and I walked in and first thing I saw was this dress...

It is exactly (minus that color of ribbon)
what I have always pictured but have failed to describe.
I love the detail.
The neckline.
The collar.
The lace.
It's just GORGEOUS.
I could see myself walking down the aisle in this dress.
Only $1,000.00
NOT in my budget!
But, my mom is going to have my aunt help her draw up a pattern to look like this dress.
Of course it won't have the detail...
or the beading...
but it will be perfect.
Cross your fingers for that.

So I feel like I have been a little MIA lately.
So here's a little mini-random-post..

So Michael and I decided one day to rearrange the living room.
Change is so good!
And I have to say, I'm pleased with how it is now.

Here is what it was BEFORE:

And here is what it is NOW:

It's kind of hard to get the whole picture,
so who wants to come over and watch a movie in my
newly-rearranged-living room?!

(Saturday the 22nd)
I am going to my first Bridal Gathering!
I'm so excited!
My mom and all 3 sisters are coming so it is going to be one heck of a girls day and I can't wait!
I have no idea what to expect...
but I'm hoping it's a blast!

I've started watching Jersey Shore and...
I think they're so fun!
And I LOVE that they have Sunday dinners.
I want that someday.

I skipped the gym today.
And I'm going to regret it I know but...
well I'm catching a cold and I don't want to spread germs to the weights...
(that's my story and I'm stickin to it)

That is all!

GLO even in winter!

Ladies, am I the only one that feels absolutely amazing with a tan?!
Didn't think so.
I don't know what it is but it makes me feel...dare I say...sexier!
My friend Mandy started a Mobile Tanning company and can I just tell you...
She comes to you,
It only takes about 10 minutes,
she does parties,
she always has lots of deals,
and c'mon, you'll feel AWESOME!
I was lucky enough to help her out and pose for before and after pics.
The following photos are of me in a BIKINI!
May cause nightmares...

If you want to look like you just got back from a faraway vacation,
then GLO!
The Peak holds parties about once a month.
This month's was tonight so the next one won't be until February.
Also here is her website.
All of her contact info is on there.
She is also on facebook!
She is super nice and the tans are amazing too!

2011 GOALS

It's that time of year again...
time to set goals I probably won't reach.
Scratch that.
This year I WILL reach ALL my goals!
Which are...

-Get in my ideal shape for my wedding. More toning.
-Stick to going to the gym at least 3 times a week.
-Plant grass in our front yard.
-Fix the banister.
-Pull of the wedding of my dreams. (wish me luck)
-Care LESS what others think. I'm DONE caring to the point it hurts...
-Spend more time with the few people I feel are TRUE friends/influences in my life.
-Get on track with bills and stay on track. We tend to get behind. Please tell me I'm not the only one...

That is all.
So BRING IT ON 2011!
