What I'm Loving Wednesday...

I'm Loving:

This Essie "Matte About You" polish. It takes any polish and gives it a matte finish! :) I am very tempted to buy on Amazon today...


I actually saw this pic on pinterest and wanted to find this nail polish but I am not having too much luck finding it!

I'm Loving:

These Paula Deen Prep Bowls. Scott and I got a set of red ones for our wedding and I use them all the time, so why not get some blue ones! :)


I'm Loving:

This DIY Project I saw on how to re-color IKEA boxes...such a neat idea. I need to go out and buy some hot pink paint! :)

I'm Loving:

This workout idea...I need to implement this, NOW! :)

I'm Loving:

These shoes! :)

Ten on Tuesday

Linking up with Roots and Rings! :)

1. What did you do this weekend?
On Friday, I met up with some others to help surprise my close friend Shahanna's  29th Birthday! :) We all met at a bowling alley....I gotta say, I am not a big bowler, but I actually didn't do too incredibly bad (generally its pretty scary)

2. Do you prefer short fingernails or long fingernails?
I like the length that is "just long enough."  Not too long that I can't type or do daily activities (putting my contacts in, blowing my nose, LOL) but long enough that they look pretty with a little polish on them! :)

3. What is your favorite use for Pinterest?
I like using Pinterest for new ideas! :) I have found some really cute DIY Projects I want to try!  I also like pinning possible "future purchases", hehe.  Oh...and I always have liked finding quotes, so pinterest is a new way for me to search for them! Click here to visit my pinterest page! :)

4. Do you sleep with your mouth open?
Good question, I have no idea...the hubby says no...That's good, don't like the idea of my mouth being open when I am sleeping. I am one of those people that would be scared something would crawl in, yikes....ughhh

5. Where did you have the best pizza you’ve ever eaten?
There is a little place in Fredericksburg, VA called La Pizzaria. My mom used to take my sister and me there when we were kids, and they always had the best pizza! :) It's a great memory, going there. For a while, they had left the "MALL" where they used to be, and I just recently rediscovered their new location. Sooo happy I did.

6. What do you eat for breakfast on weekdays?
Since I am doing weight watchers breakfast usually consists of oatmeal and recently, I have been eating rasberries for breakfast too.

7. Do you watch awards shows? Why or why not?
No, never really had the desire to. I feel the same way about a lot of different shows...Now put me in front of a show like Desperate Housewives or Dance Moms, and I am hooked.

8. Can you whistle? Snap? Curl your tongue? Bend down and touch your palms to the ground?
Whistle: Yes
Curl my tongue: Yes
Palms to the ground: Yes

I know, I'm skilled. I can flip my eye-lids too...Thanks to Dad for teaching me that one, LOL.

9. What email service do you use?
Back in the day it was Hotmail...but now I use GMail

10. What is your favorite outdoor activity?
Going for a walk on a sunny day! :)

Happy Birthday Scott!

Wanted to wish my wonderful hubby a Happy 38th Birthday!!!
Yesterday we went to Firebirds Wood Fired Grill for a great dinner, I had a flirtini, it was delish! Loved it! :)
After dinner, we went to one of our local favorite spots, "Carls". Best ice cream ever! We waited in a long line, but it is always worth it, even when it's cold! (Oh, and it's snowing today, lol)
All in all, it was a great weekend! :)

We'll miss you Doozie...

Today was a sad day. My parents had to have our family dog "Doozie" put to sleep today. Days like today, I wish I lived closer to my parents, so I could have been there with them. Doozie lived a long wonderful life. I am glad she isn't in pain anymore...

  I remember the day we went to go pick her out and bring her home for the first time.

 Now, anyone who knows the family, knows that Doozie had a very unique personality. She wasn't big on affection. My mom was "her favorite", I don't think I was, hehe. She wasn't the kind of dog you would run up to and pet....but that was just the way she was, and we all loved her exactly the way God made her. She loved us all, and she just had her own "Doozie" way of showing us.  Growing up, I always had a way of making her howl for a good minute or two straight, It was cute, you had to be there, LOL. :) She would get so excited whenever my Mom would arrive back from anywhere...she really loved her! :)

We will really miss her....and life wouldn't have been the same without having her in it!

Skinny Snickerdoodles!

I saw this recipe for Snickerdoodles over at "Eat Yourself Skinny" and they just looked to yummy not to try, so this morning, I gave it a shot!  They are only 1 weight watchers point each! (old weight watchers plan) I choose to still use the old weight watchers diet, because it always worked the best for me! I stick to what works! I tried them and they are great!! Definitely worth making!!!

Click here to go get the delish recipe!! :)

Today Roxy had to spend all morning at Pets Mart getting her annual shots, so after my cookie making, the pup and I spent ALL afternoon on the couch! Normal Sunday. :)

Cricut Concerns... is my dilemma. 2 years ago I decided I wanted to buy a Cricut Expression and I did just that. I attempted to use it one time. That's right, just one time. I failed miserably. So it just sits on the desk in my craft room.

I mainly got it because I wanted to try and make vinyl stickers. I have yet to attempt that. Since I did so awful cutting paper, I just stopped there.

Does anyone have any tips?? I need to take a class, lol. Really I just want to learn how to cut vinyl, and how to possibly design cute monograms that I can create on the machine. That's all I ever really wanted to do. (It's possible, right?!)
