Where has the time gone........

Look at this sweet little face......... My little Gracie Bug will be four in a little less than 2 weeks. I am sad just thinking about the fact that she is not a baby anymore. The last picture is of her with her new big girl haircut, (excuse the picture for being so blurry I took it with my phone and it is not of the best quality)

I can't get enough reality TV....

I absolutely cannot get enough reality TV. Whether it be The Real World, Real Housewives of The OC, The Hills or The City. Whatever you give me I can watch, especially if it's filled with drama. Well, right now my favorite is Real Housewives Of New York. Does anybody else love this as much as I do? Here is the breakdown of what I think about everybody.






I cannot wait till next Tuesday for another episode to come on. I am so addicted....

Guess what I am getting....

I absolutely cannot contain myself. Here lately I have been really interested in sewing. Actually right now I am working on 6 small lap quilts for my Aunts. Well I always have to use the kitchen table to sew on because I have nowhere else to go. Elijah and I were talking this afternoon and we decided I needed a sewing/craft room. We are going to move Gracie's things to the bigger extra bedroom and I will in turn move into her old room. I will have the entire room for myself. I am so super excited. I cannot tell you how many times I have rummaged through the house looking for certain craft things, because there is not really a special place for it all to go. Well now there will be. I will post pictures soon of my quilts and my new craft room. Yay for me :)

A ranting and raving kind of day....

I just want to start out by saying the mall here in Columbus sucks. Gracie needed some shoes because she had out grown hers. Well I decide to go to Hibbits first, guess what they don't have her size. So I walk my little butt down to Sports Additions and guess what I found a wall full of gold and silver high top shoes. The gawdiest (I think thats a word) shoes you will ever lay your eyes on. NEWS FLASH Sports Addition my child don't plan on walking through Southside anytime soon so please stock some shoes that a white kid might like. I am really sorry if I offend anyone but this is just what I am feeling. There were a few and I really only mean 1 or 2 shoes that looked ok, but guess what they didn't have her size. So I had to go to Jcpennys of all places and get her a pair of Nikes that would fit. It is pretty sad when you have to go to Jcpenneys and get a pair of tennis shoes and not an actual shoe store that should sell a big selection of shoes. So below I have posted pictures of the ghetto shoes that I had to choose from. These may not the exact shoes but they are ver similar. Thank goodness Jcpennys was there to save me.

Needing Inspiration...

I have totally fallen off of the diet wagon. I told myself at the beginning of the year that I wanted to lose around 25-30 pounds. Well guess what, as soon as my head heard the word diet I believe I was immediately hungry. I have not dieted one ounce since the beginning of the year. I more than likely have gained a pound or two. So I need a little inspiration!!! I am going to Louisiana at the end of March and I definitely want to lose some of my goal weight. I have exactly 8 weeks from today to lose 25 pounds. I know it is highly unlikely that I will lose the entire 25 pounds but I want to lose every ounce that I can before the trip. I know the first thing that will help is when I get off of my lazy butt and exercise. Cross your fingers for me and wish me luck because today I am on strict diet and exercise.

Valentine's Day is on it's way...

I have come across some really great blogs, and have found some really cute Valentine's stuff. Here is a list of a few of my favorites.

Going to The Junction...

My Mother and Father-In-Law go The Junction here in Columbus every once in a while. It's an atmosphere with clean, family fun. Mostly older people go, but Gracie loves to go "shake her booty" as she calls it. Here is a picture of her and her Tine Tine after dancing to Blue Suede Shoes (Gracie's favorite song).
