Weekend..and a mingle

Hello! Happy Monday!

Was it super dark when you woke up today? It's always still dark when I do, but it was still dark when I went to work at 7:30! I was so thrown off by this all day. It made me want to curl up in a blanket and watch movies all day with Milli. 

Speaking of Milli we got her results from her allergy testing, now we know what to not give her, and that she is allergic to Dust mites...ugh. Washing all the time from now on! 

But onto the weekend!

Friday: As I post on Friday, we had a toddler party and Milli tried on her costume. Loved.

That night was Scott's last football game! It was so cold and they lost... sad : ( but I am glad to be finally seeing my husband finally! 

Court and I at our last football game

Saturday: Scott left for his "boys weekend" so I went and picked up my bountiful basket, and kept putting stuff away around the house. That evening I went to a wedding, and the boys (twins) came over for a slumber party! they were so much fun to have, and Milli was absolutely amazing with them. Makes me so happy to know she will be great with kids, but I never doubted that! 

*all three watching Finding Nemo*

Sunday: The boys woke up at 6! ha so much for sleeping in. I made them breakfast and then they went home. I watched a documentary on Marilyn Monroe (LOVE HER) called Love, Marilyn, and then I decided to get busy. I ended up painting my bathroom, and Scott's mom came and helped. After that I napped.....made dinner, and watched the documentary Blackfish. I recommend it, but I was extremely sad and angry for the whales when it was over, and sad for those who have died loving them... 

Scott got home around 10, and by that time I was wiped out. night night for Kae. 

Today: It was a decent Monday. The kiddos are so excited since it's Halloween, and I def share that excitement with them! We got Milli and allergy shot that should help with itching...and I went grocery shopping. While I was typing this, The Vow was on tv, and it was at a certain part that I I have to share. 

Makes you smile to finish up a Monday!!!!

Sorry for the randomness towards the end! Hope you all had a great weekend!!!! 

Link up with Meg

Meg's mingle question: What are going going to do or be for Halloween?

I plan on being a spider again for school, and passing out lots of candy! I think I'll make hot cider and have donuts because that is a tradition my mom started :)

5 on Friday

Happy Friday! 
Very glad it's finally here. I am happy to say I am not traveling anywhere this weekend, even though I do love going to see family and friends, I am ready for some time at home. 

So here is a little 5 on Friday!

1. Today we had toddler's at our school, and it was there Halloween Party. I threw a quick costume together, and I liked it better then I thought I would, so it will be my costume on Halloween too!!!

2. So in Halloween spirit I tried Milli's costume on. Of course it's Disney, but I am sad Scott and I bought one that is too small, but we still had to get her in it. She was so pleased. 

3. Tomorrow I have a wedding to go to, and I am helping with the twins, and then they get to come over and have a sleepover with Auntie Kae. I am pretty excited. 

They were scared of the spider at first then by the end of me stopping by they were kissing it!

4. Scott's last football game is tonight. I love sports, but I am happy to be able to start seeing him more! He will be gone for a "boy's weekend" so I am soaking up anytime with him. 

5. I am so excited to be home this weekend and finally get stuff put away, decorated, etc. Maybe even some more painting. ugh. haha. I am so happy that we have a house and it's starting to come together. feeling pretty dang blessed.

I hope you all have a fan-tabulous weekend!

this and that

Oh, how I hate the days that I don't get a chance to blog! 
So with that Happy Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday! I had every intention of blogging last night, but I came home from work to find.... MY HUSBAND. This may not seem odd to you, but for me it was one heck of a good surprise. Scott is using coaching, but he didn't go to practice, and decided instead to surprise me. He was painting the rest of the living room where I couldn't reach. It was such a great surprise, and so nice to have our living room basically done other then the fine points of decorating! (pictures to come)

What a sweetheart. he has my heart.

So of course, what did I have to do. Decorate for Halloween of course.

I just love Halloween.

My kiddos also made some pretty cute spiders. found the idea on pinterest, and they made it look pretty dang adorable.

So in other randomness, I am excited because tomorrow is Scott's last football game. I do love sports, and love coaching, but it will be nice to have him around more. I kinda like the guy. 

also I can't get enough of Lorde. Downloaded her whole album which was on sale on itunes! highly recommended. 

Yes, I told you...this and that today. haha.

Well I leave you with this funny video I saw! 

Happy Thursday!

Happy Monday, and I hope you all had a great weekend. I felt like ours was a whirlwind, even with having Friday off! 

Friday: Day off for both Scott and I. It was super nice to sleep in past 6:00 am! We both relaxed, and then I was surprised by some family that lives in town. We had a nice visit. After Scott went to lunch with a friend, and I got cleaned up. Milli had a vet appointment to try to figure out once again why she is itching so badly. So we had allergy testing done, and get the results this week. She also got a microchip which I am super happy about. I felt so bad though because the vet stresses her out so badly.

She wouldn't stop cuddling and whining. Broke my heart, so I may have ordered her some new collars. She isn't spoiled. 

After the appointment I had to run home and get ready for the football game. Once again it was FREEZING. and my cousin Courtney was my date as always. They game to say the least was very bad again, so we left after the 3rd quarter.

I sure do have fun hanging out with her, and she finds out her baby's gender on Halloween!

Saturday: we got up early and drove to Laramie. I got my nails done and a pedi which was sooooo nice, since it had been since the wedding! Scott went and tailgated for awhile, and I just relaxed with pop-e and Mill pie. Overall it was relaxing just to hang out with him.

I did get to enjoy a pumpkin spiced latte! yum! 

Sunday: we had to get going early again since Scott had papers to grade, but we ended up getting groceries since Laramie has a Wal-mart which is so much cheaper then the grocery store we have. It started snowing. BOO. The trip home took longer then expected. I went on a rampage when we got home. I painted and almost finished the living room. I need this house to come together!

Today: we had a professional development day which makes for a long day. I paid bills, did laundry, and made dinner. I was planning on finishing painting but I think after this post a bath and bed sounds much better. Painting can come tomorrow!

I leave you with an attempt of a family photo, a video of Scott and M, and a picture of M's new favorite spot.

Have a great evening and as always thank you for stopping by! love all your comments!

days like today.

Happy Hump Day to everyone! ( I am saying that in the camel voice from the Geico commercial)! I am so glad today is hump day because that means tomorrow is my last day of work for this week. I truly love my job, but this week has been a tad bit rough! My kiddos are wild wild wild. Today after work too I felt like jumping through the phone at a customer service person. I don't understand why people have to be rude. Manners go a long ways. So as I was driving home from work, frustrated, I thought to myself, don't be mad...just be happy because I have so much in my life to be happy...

Here are some things that make me realize a bad day, doesn't have to set the tone for everything. 

My many blessings:

*My loves*

*my sweet nephews*

*my girls and my boy*

*so funny story. It's homecoming week at the school my parents work at...This morning my mom sent me the photo above..yes that is her dressing like my dad at football....I added some photos so you could see* 
*these type of things make my days*

*yep. pop-e OF COURSE*

and I have so much more. What are some of your blessings???? 
I hope you all had a good day, a nice glass of wine is calling my name!

weekend recap.

Happy Monday my fellow bloggers. I wish I had this super exciting weekend to tell you about, but I don't. We ended up going to my mom's which isn't the shortest trip and packing up the rest of my stuff, and moving it finally. I am completely relieved that it is done, but I am so tired I have no motivation to put the house together. I felt like I worked all weekend..... boo hiss.

(this was me)

Some moving humor : 

I am grateful that my stuff is here though, and we can finally put our house together when I get some motivation. 

How was everyone's weekend? I hope well!

It's a cold Monday here! This ecard made me laugh!!

Happy Monday!

5 on Friday (Happy Weekend)

TGIF! I am so happy that it is Friday. I have been feeling off this whole week, so Friday was somewhat relieving.... I hope you all have a great weekend, but before the weekend, I am linking up for 5 on Friday!

ONE: I am so excited to go to my parent's tomorrow and get the rest of my stuff, but more importantly to see my family. I haven't seen them since my cousin's wedding. I am needing some family time for sure!

TWO: I would like to wish all my Canadian followers Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

THREE: I would like these outfits in my closet right now!
*pictures via*

FOUR: I confess that I am relaxing when I should be painting and putting more stuff away in the house.... oops... hehe!

FIVE: Lastly I love, love FALL. It's my favorite season. I do wish Wyoming had a little bit more of fall...I feel like we go from summer straight to winter, but nevertheless I still love fall.... 

love these quotes!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Guilty pleasures.... (tv edition)

So even though I am not one to watch a ton of shows on tv, there are a few that have either stuck with me, or I still watch. My favs are: Grey's Anatomy, Sex and the City, The Office, and of course Friends. When I was in high school I did collect That 70's show.

Well tonight is Grey's. It's my one night that Scott is completely cool with me having the tv for an hour! Love it, but I have to admit I wasn't always a fan. My roommates in college were faithful Grey's watchers. Well my last semester in college my roommate finally talked me into starting the show...I was hooked. I luckily worked at a movie store, so I was able to get caught up quickly. 

Scott does love Friends like I do, and we actually go to sleep watching it every night. Something that is kinda our thing. We finish all 10 seasons, and we start again. 

They all have great quotes too!!!! Sorry if this is a weird post, but I had to share, because I get so excited for my one night! 

My favorite quote from friend's: 

What are your favorite shows?
