It’s Tuesday, It’s Raining

I woke up in a nice mood – until I began POURING OUTSIDE! (Better than pouring inside I suppose.)

It’s coffee time, bitches!

Ps. I’m running a contest on my “other” blog Atomic-Mama … go … look!

Little Changes, Big Changes

I’m been becoming (re-becoming?) more ‘girly’ lately. I’m not sure who to put the blame on – a couple girlfriends of mine or Pinterest.

For the past couple months I’ve been working on losing weight. I haven’t been as successful as I would like – but I’ve lost 10lbs by just watching what I eat. I recently started exercising more, so I expect the weight to go away faster now.

I’ve been paying more attention to fashion – not a ton since I really prefer comfort over style – but since I’m working in an office building I have to dress a little nicer during the week. I’m having fun with it – and I plan on buying a few new things once I drop another 10lbs.

I got my nails done last weekend. Not talking my normal mani or pedi – I’m talking a full set of acrylics. Not super long – just a little longer than my own nails. But I love them! It’s a little difficult to type though. First world problems, I know …

Now, the pièce de résistance comes tomorrow when I arrive at the eye doctor at 7:45am for LASIK eye surgery. I’ve been wanting it for YEARS now (Alan got his version – PRK – done in 2006!) I’m super excited, yet super nervous also. Super. Nervous.

I’m excited, though, about the ‘new’ me … Well, not ‘new’ really – just a little improved.

Daylight Savings Sucks

What are you saving!? Everyone woke up late and didn’t want to get out of bed! The Boy-child missed the bus and I had to wake up the Fairy-Baby and take Boy-Child to school! Plus – I have a splitting headache and am running out of time before I have to take the baby for a doctor visit. I chugged my coffee and ate some cheese cubes; still hungry! I want some Bojangles!

Bleh … I’m not working today, maybe I can convince the baby to take a nap later …

Itching to Create

My fab husband “allowed” me to drop him and the kids off at home and wander around the craft store for over an hour last night! It was therapeutic certainly – I needed a “night out” even if it was a short one.

I was on a quest to pick up some ribbon to make some hairbows for my daughter – nothing fancy since I’m really not wanting to get into making all those insane “designer” hairbows. I have enough friends I can order them from!

I was also on the hunt for some trinkets and bits to make a necklace. I found a sweet “steampunk” style necklace over on Pinterest and I was dying to try and recreate it! I found a lot of similar charms at the craft store. Just missing a small rose-looking “bead” of some sort. The necklace I’m trying to recreate is pictured to the left.

I found some light silver wings – which I’m not crazy about so I picked up some metallic coppery paint and some metallic “gun metal” colored paint and will see which color will mesh best with the other charms I purchased.

I’m excited to see how this turns out! I haven’t made jewelry (or anything else for that matter) in awhile now!

Getting Back on Track

So, now that my three-months of hosting is about to expire with Namecheap (because I only paid for three months, not for some shifty reason) – I’m finally getting back on track.

Except – I think Juliana (the baby) has a radar for when Mommy is on the laptop because I hear her getting cranky from the playroom. She may be just mad at some toys though.

lol … I used the word “Mommy” and in my Zemanta sidebar on this LiveWriter program I am getting naked shots of people who have undergone the “Mommy Makeover” plastic surgery. Heh … thanks for the humor this morning Zemanta!

Speaking of Mommy Makeovers – you can find me on MyFitnessPal.com because my fat ass is trying to lose weight! Huzzah! Are you on the site? It’s actually super, duper helpful! I am one of those OCD types who have to write down everything they eat in order to stay on track … The one thing that the MFP app (for the iPhone at least) has that the SparkPeople app doesn’t? The ability to scan bar-codes and get nutritional information! Hence – I’m using MFP instead of SparkPeople.

Okay – I really have to jump in the shower and get ready for work now. Just wanted to check in with my readers and let them know am I still sortof alive here.

That Could Have Been Bad

So I was about three seconds from installing a WordPress plugin that would auto-post my stuff from my (shh, secret) Tumblr blog to this blog. Then I realized – what am I thinking!? That Tumblr blog is where I can freely vent about people, places, things! Ugh! What was I thinking?

So, I think that maybe I will create another Tumblr blog that I can keep tabs on all my weird oddities and interests and import THAT one into the blog.

Hmm.

Edit: Ahh .. fuck it …
