Open mouth, insert foot

Be careful what you say!
My last post was full of griping because my life's been pretty boring....welp, last night at midnight, my life got a tad bit eventful....

Whenever Austin's away I can never fall asleep until late.

Last night, around midnight, I decide that I should atleast try to fall asleep. Just as I was about to turn off my light, Cody throws up. Yuck! He'd been acting a little less energetic that evening but I didn't think much of it. Whenever Austin goes out of town Cody tends to mope around. This time,notthecase. I clean him up then try, you hear me, try to squirt some Peptobismal down his throat. Well, most ended up getting all over me and probably nothing in his mouth. The poor thing DESPISES that stuff. I gave up and we both went to sleep.

This first alarm goes off. As I am enjoying the thought of 30 more minutes of sleeping bliss, I roll over to hear Cody gagging. CRAP! Just as I turn my light on, he pukes.....TWICE! And ALL OVER MY BEDSPREAD! Bye-bye sleeping in! I grab him and put him in the bathroom and proceed to rip off all of my bedding. Great.

I will gladly welcome any sort of dullness over puppy puke, anyday.

Happy Wednesday.

L to the AZY

My goodness, I have just NOT felt up to blogging lately!

Call it laziness...or maybe simply because I haven't had too much going on worth "documenting".

Anyhoo, I didn't feel I needed to write a whole entry on our trip to Georgia because the pictures I picked pretty much cover what we did, but we really did enjoy ourselves! Any time taken off of work is lovely! :)

This past weekend was a complete blurr. We didn't really do anything either. Austin spent Saturday in the yard and I spent it inside. I developed a pesky cold and that kinda had me feeling a little sluggish, boo. We did buy a flatscreen though, I'm excited! We've wanted one for awhile, but my penny-pinching smart saver of a hubby, has been watching and waiting for the perfect price. And well, he found it! (This may be a technique I need to learn: patience. Haha) Oh, and I did get my car windows tinted. Talk about an exciting weekend! ;)

Austin has another run coming up this weekend. This time instead of a marathon it's a 15k. He is such a champ! As for this week, Austin's back to traveling. Ironically he had to go back to Atlanta...and called me today to tell me that he ended up exactly where we stayed while we were there, weird. He'll be back on Thursday, but until then, it's just the Codester and I!

That's all I have for now, I hope everyone else is having a more eventful week than I am!

"Burns, it's what's for dinner"

This is a smidge late, but my wonderful hubby took me to Burns Steakhouse for dinner Sunday night. For those of you who do not know about this a-m-a-z-i-n-g restaurant, let me tell you a little about it. For the steak connoisseurs out there, this is the #2 steakhouse in the nation. And we have the priviledge of living right near it! :) It's a bit on the pricey side, but it is worth every bit! The steaks melt in your mouth and they have the most scrumptous french onion soup on the planet!! OH! The best part is their desserts! Oh my really is a piece of heaven. I had the "Chocolate Cheese Pie" and Austin had the "Peach Melba". SOOOOO GOOD! As for the decor, you feel like your in an old 18th century haunted house. It has really dim lighting and profile statues everywhere...I compare the decor to that of the Haunted Mansion at Disney. It's awesome! So, yeah, my hubby took me and it was as good (if not better) as the last time. It is not your ordinary restaurant, if you are ever in Tampa, you have to go to Burns!!

Bag Tag!!

Heres what ya do:

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house. No cheating!
2) I want to know how much it cost:) And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.
3) Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your bag.

I was tagged! So here goes.....
this is my lovely it for my last birthday, from the outlets for a whopping $150.00...but it is worth every penny because it fits everything I need perfectly and ofcourse, it's gorgeous!! :)

let's see, I pride myself on being very organized with the contents of my purse. I always have a purse-sized planner, a wallet (I tend to trade those out as much as I do my purses!), my Vera makeup bag with a few lipgloss options, and my keys. Oh, and today was special because I stopped by Walgreens to buy my FAV V-day candy...Strawberry Cream chocolate hearts! Yum!!

And once again, I do not believe I have enough "readers" to tag...but feel free to do it, it's pretty fun to see what people carry in their purses!

...On the road AGAIN

Last week it was Dallas, this week it's New Jersey/New York, next week Orlando.I'll tell you one thing, my husband is going to know airports across the nation, like the back of his hand by the time these next few weeks are over! Sheesh! Traveling is at an all-time high for him right now. Neither of us love ALL. BUT, when I feel myself wanting to pout, I remind myself to be thankful that he HAS a job. So, thank you Jesus for Austin's job!(Just please bring him home, sooner than later ;)).

The weather outside was YUCK-EEE today, rained all day. I did get to use my new, super-cute-Vera Bradley-look-a-like umbrella though :) It is one of my Target was originally $16, I bought it for, wait for it....$3!!! I amaze myself sometimes at the items I come is like, they are put on that shelf, just for me. (insert heavenly tune here) ::Sigh:: I ♥ Target!!

Time for another pedi...although I have done what I can to keep them looking their ultimate french-ie best, (i.e.- wearing open toed shoes in freezing weather!) they have chipped. Not to mention, somehow I managed to break one, so now I have one little toe that has NO pretty white line, and is WAY smaller than all the others...the outcast. I must fix that pronto !!

Tomorrow looks like another uneventful day for me. Oh wait, I get to go to the eye doctor!! Whoopie doodles! (sarcasm) Then the dentist on Wednesday, gosh, don't you all wish you were me?!? lol.

Welp, it is some sorta late, I must make myself sleep, work awaits me in the morn!
