Blah blah blahhh

The title pretty much reflects my feelings for this past weekend. 
Thursday I woke up with cold symptoms. Friday I left work early because said cold symptoms were making me miserable. I went straight to Nason Medical to get some medicine. They tell me I have a UTI and a sinus infection and put me on an antibiotic. 

Saturday I felt like death most of the day. Oh and apparently antibiotics can make you stomach sick so basically it's like a stomach flu on top of everything else. Fun right? Not! 

So saturday night was my small groups cookout and I had hopes to go so in the morning I made a super yummy butterfinger cake. It smelled amazing!! 
Dave ended up talking me into trying the party to at least take the cake. Side note a piece of this cake is probably a million calories so we were not keeping it!! Anywho I went and lasted an hour, I felt aweful but did enjoy being there and chatting with my friends for that hour. Dave was right and it did feel good to get out the house. I know they all had so much fun so hopefully next time I can actually stay the whole time :) these ladies are so great and I really love getting to make new friends. 
The rest of the night looked like this. Like my new slippers Dave got me? So warm! Speaking of Dave I have to give him props he took such good care of me. Even went to walmart at 10pm for somethings I needed. Thats love people! Lol annnd he dealt with my whining! 

Sunday we watched tv most of the day then went to my house to hang out with my family. Even though I felt crappy I loved being with my family and getting a few cuddles from my Kodie boy! 

Today is another rest day but hopefully tomorrow I will be back to work and all better! I need to amp up my vitamin consumption apparently because my immune system sucks! 

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Happy Birthday Izzy

Today we celebrated Isabelle turning 5 which was actually thursday but we partied today. 
She had a barbie theme for her birthday and my sister did a really good job making the table so cute. 
Mmmmm pizza!! 
Izzy enjoyed her pink cupcakes and TONS of gifts. She said her favorite was her barbie camper which I would have flipped over as a kid. 
One very blessed kid, great gifts from her family and friends. 
Shannon and Izzy! 
Nene and Izzy! 
Grammy, Susan, Shannon, me, Christine, Krystal, Theresa and mommy! Love these women! 
Sistas and my nephew in Krystals tummy! January can't come soon enough. 
We spent a lot of time outside they even put up the jump castle. 


Izzy is a lucky girl and we had a blast celebrating her 5th birthday!! The kids were wiped out when we left! I must say I am pretty wiped out too!!

Cars, parks and fun

Today has been a busy one!! I feel like we did so much today. 

The day started pretty chill with some story time in bed. 
Then we all got ready and headed to the Mt. Pleasant Riverfront Park to play. We got surprised by a free car show which we all really liked. 
Firetrucks were there and even gave a demonstration which involved the ladder going super high holding a fireman. 
We saw some really old and cool tractors that the nice men let the kids climb on. 
There were tons of corvettes the kids liked the ones with the flames. 
My favorite part was the really old cars. It's not everyday you get to see cars like this especially in such amazing condition. 

We walked back over to the park for a bit to play. 





We played for an hour then headed home due to an unmentionable accident. We grabbed some lunch first then went home. 

After a bit at home we went to a playground at park circle. 



We all enjoyed this "zip line" thing at the park and then Alayna jumped down. She basically bit the crap out of her tongue when her mouth hit her knee. So our park trip quickly ended. 
There was a LOT of blood so he wanted to have it looked at. We both assumed a doctor really couldn't do anything because of how small the bite was but hey better safe than sorry. 
She was a trooper and let the doctor look with no fight at all. Most kids would be scared but she was good to go. He said it's pointless for stiches in a tongue plus hers would be fine on it's own. His only suggestion: popsicles! Haha she was fine with that. 
We went to wal-mart for a few things and Dave got me pretty flowers :) Logan helped him pick them out. 
We fed the ducks some bread when we got home, had spaghetti for dinner and relaxed. What a day!! 

It was fun despite our hour of craziness! 

Tomorrow should be even more fun!! I just love weekends!!

Super lazy weekend

This weekend has been by far the laziest weekend. Sometimes you just need that, am I right? 

Friday night instead of going out for Halloween I watched Gilmore Girls all night. And thus began my laziness haha

Dave did a haunted house for the Navy the last 3 nights and will again tonight. So yesterday he didn't feel like doing anything so we ate lunch and watched tv until he had to leave. 

I went home to hang with the family when he left for the haunted house. My sis and I did go up to Obrions for a drink and appetizers then came back home to hang out some more. 
Izzy sure is silly!! Love her to pieces! 
It was nice to just hang out with my sister for a little bit. It's rare for it to be just us anymore. 
I saw a pretty rainbow on my way over there, so beautiful!! God is an amazing artist and I love his work :) 

Today has been yet another lazy day!! I do plan to go home for some chili later but that's kinda it. This is the last lazy weekend I will be able to have for awhile with so much planned so I am enjoying it. 

Hopefully everyone else had a more eventful weekend :)

Happy Halloween



My co-worker and I at work today, we both dressed up. There wasn't a whole lot of people who participated BUT one group dressed up like workout people from the 80's and they had a guy be Richard Simmons. Classic!!! 
I love this costume! Next year I hope to find something just as awesome! 
My aunt and I took 2 walks today and seriously the trees looked so pretty! I love this time of year!! 

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!

Salon time


I know every girl loves to go get her hair done and I am no exception. I am not a huge fan of the price BUT sometimes you just have to splurge, right? 

I went yesterday to Hipp Salon in West Ashley to get my hair done by Misty. I told her I wanted it to be lighter and she delivered. I also took about 2 inches off my hair and it feels so much healthier. I am surprised I took off that much because I have major anxiety about cutting my hair. I am not sure where this came from but over the last 3 or so years it has showed up. That is one of the reasons I love Misty. She will NOT cut my hair too much and that makes her amazing in my book! 
I love the color it really is very pretty! I secretly wish I could be blonde again BUT my hair couldn't handle the bleach so caramel highlights is how I can get close without hurting my hair.
