It's Okay Thursday!

I'm linking up for It's Okay Thursday

It's okay that yesterday instead of going to the gym I went out to dinner with a friend
It's okay that I spent the even doing crafts and burning my thumb severely with a hot glue gun
Its okay that this morning I touched my arm to the hot tea kettle and burned my wrist
Its okay that I'm whining about the two burns I received in the last 24 hours
Its okay that I did not really feel like blogging today but then "It''s Okay" came along :)
Its okay that my birthday is not for three weeks and I have already been planning how to celebrate
Its okay that I love fall and yet despise Halloween
Its okay that I'm dying to dress up our wiener dog as a hot dog in a bun for Halloween
Its okay that the knob on my heater in the car broke and now I have no way to defrost the window

I hope everyone else is having a burn free Thursday :p

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm linking up with Jamie for What I'm loving Wednesday!!
Hope everyone is having a great week. I have lots of loves must of them stemming from Pinterest! GO...FIGURE?

I must be having a little love affair with red. Once I posted these pictures I saw a developing theme :) 
Maybe you could pull this off with a sweater and boots!?

I love this style of dress. Very flattering for my shape! Perfect for work stuff

How cozy does this sweater look. I love this and the heels still keep it hot!

Another piece that is red

I thought this was too cute. I would love to do this for Halloween!

I'm gonna have to file this away for when I'm a mom and need to bring snacks. Course kids will probably hate it.

I love this....I think to often people forget how to say "I'm Sorry"....I'll save that for another post

This is so true...and sorta sad.

Well these are my loves this week. I'll be back next week with more!

I made my first Guacamole recipe ever...
Turns out it is very simple...who knew?
Well I started by watching a video on how to cut avocado. (I told you I was a neub)

Turns out this is not as complicated as I thought.
The next step is just adding in all the ingredients that you like in your dip

2-3 avocados
2 Roma tomato's
1 whole lime squeezed
enough onions for taste
I used several shakes of salt, pepper and garlic powder
I used maybe 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
mix together and serve same day to keep from oxidizing (turning brown)
I would smash all ingredients together first and then add tomato's last

stole this picture from the Internet...mine looked just like this

Anyway....the whole project was a success and I think that if you have never tried to make the dip you should give it a whirl. I was shocked how easy it was. 

Have a Happy Tuesday everyone!

Interview Questions

Nicole over at Dancing with Sunshine and I decided to do something a little fun today.
She and I swapped interview questions and below you will find her answers. So if you have a chance to pop over to her page please do. I answered questions too and you can find them over at her page.  Not only does she feature some great DIY projects but she is also my Best Friend.

If you had I million dollars would you share…with who?
Wouldn't that be a dream huh?! Humm..I'm pretty good at sharing...when I was little I would just give my brother money because I was such a nice sister.  He never did the same.
I would give some to my mom and dad for everything that they've paid for me, some to Josh's parents, and then I think I would save some for our family.  I'm really sketchy about 'giving' to organizations because it makes me wonder if they ever truly get the money or not.

What is your favorite pizza toppings?

Pepperoni, cheese, banana peppers, mushrooms (fresh, not from a can), onions.

Do you like ice cream or yogurt?
Looooooove ice cream. Used to eat it way more than what I do now, but its delish. Love me some cake batter ice cream.

What would you say is your biggest fault? 
Trust.  I don't trust people enough but yet I'm very trusting of people.  Weird huh?

If someone had something in their teeth would you tell them?
Probably only if I knew them... or the relationship between the person and I.

If you could trade places with anyone one person who would it be?
Hum, that's a toughie. I have no idea! I've never thought about that before.  Probably any celebrity. Oh to be famous for a day!

What is your favorite accessory?

If you had to go without a shower would you melt down or make do?
 Oh I could make do.  My husband on the other hand, probably not.  Total metro.

What one place would you like to visit? 
Australia or Hawaii.

If you had to rescue your husband or your child…who would it be?
Well, currently no children, so husband.  Now, if my dog needed rescued, thats a different story.

What is your worst fear?
Being in the ocean alone and not being able to see my feet. Eeeeeek!

What is your best memory? 
Playing outside in the summer time until the sun goes down, and hearing my mom yell my name to come home.

If you could give your high school self some advice…what would it be?
 If you would of tried to have friends in high school, you might have some today.

 What is your favorite restaurant?
Outback! Their vegetables are the best!

If you could be an all star at something…what would you give yourself skills to do? 
Something that would make me unique that would get me on the Ellen show. I love Ellen.
It drives my hubby nuts.

If you could change on thing about yourself...what would it be?
I would be less controlling, and better at picking up after myself.

Hunger Games...The Movie

I read "The Hunger Games," books this last year.
Now they are making another one of my favorite series into movies.
Just in time too as I need another movie series to follow
I absolutely love PETA!!! Such a great and heart warming character.
Well they have started releasing information regarding the characters. So pumped.
If you haven't read the books it! There are only 3 and they go really fast. I think I read a book a day....while I was in England site seeing. That should tell you how good they are that I was not willing to put them down even when in downtown London.

Peta and Gale


I dont know about everyone else but I think they did a pretty good job of picking a cast. This is pretty similar to how I imagined they would look.

Just for fun I included a pictures of the pups sleeping on the couch together...presh!

Got an award!! wahoo

Thank the person who gave you the award.
I want to thank the talented Kristen over at Joyful Ramblings. She always has some little gem to read about.
Share three random facts about yourself.

1. This weekend I was super productive. I read 2.5 books and helped install a garage door!
Yes, that is a pumpkin spice latte. My first of the season :)

2. I was once stung by a scorpion on the foot. My feet doubled in size and I looked like Fred Flintstone

3. I'm suppose to start back to grad school this week and all I can think about is cancelling my classes till winter so I can have a social life this fall.

Onto passing this award on to five others....

Flying South for the Winter

Well its official. My parents have put their house on the market and are making the move to be retirees in Florida. They are leaving this weekend and are packing up and will not be back till thanksgiving.
Cant say I am thrilled with all of these developments..but they are adults.

So here is my post in honor of them flying south for the winter...

This last picture makes me wish I was going too! :)
