Finish the Sentence with Jake and Holly


Because I have a 30,204 things to do at work today and I don’t know where to start…So I’ll channel my energy to my blog…since it’s been so neglected these days…


1. I always pick WINE over BEER.
2. Look at the size of those...tee tah’s on Phillips from 100 days of summer. They are freakishly huge…
3. I recently learned....if I don’t run, I will gain weight…whomp whomp whomp
4. Only when no one is looking...I talk to myself… especially in the car.
5. I lost my....mind and repainted my kitchen red. I love it
6. I was certain I'd be...a stay at home mom who sent her kid to school. This work shit is overrated.
7. There is not enough liquor in the world for me to…to actually make H’s baby quilt. I think I’ll pay someone to do it.
8. I just finished...emailing my Bestie. She’s back at work and that makes me happy.
9. Why does everyone have to be... putting their business of Facebook? I mean is your husband REALLY that amazing? Are you really that BLESSED? Does anyone really care what you are eating for lunch?
10. it’s very rare when I...go a day without cursing. It’s bad. But who fucking cares?
11. If I were a dog...I’d be one of those prissy dogs who had bling around their neck and drank only Perrier
12. I don't divorce. You better work that shit out. Or don’t get married. Period. That’s why we don’t get married at 18. If HE eff’s up you buy a wood chipper and start over. BOOM. I feel the need to clarify that the wood chipper is a joke…. Just in case this is presented in court one day… lol… we’ve all seen 48hours.

I'm alive... Happy Friday

Why is it on short work weeks Friday seems so far away? This week has been a dozy. I only worked 2 days this week but I have never been so happy to see Friday. Sickness has hit the L home again. That’s neither here nor there... Here’s my five for Friday.

We had a blast in STL. I miss it. Like a lot. I talked M into looking at houses while we were there, with hopes that we will be back soon.

After seeing my sweet Harper I now have baby fever. She was absolutely beautiful. And she still has that sweet baby smell.

I’m reading It Starts With Food, after reading about it on this blog. The book is very interesting. I highly recommend it. Here is what I took from it:
*Sugar is bad. Like really bad. STOP EATING IT.
*Alcohol is bad. But ok in moderation. (I added the last part.)
*The book really broke down how your body responds to getting nutrients. When you eat something that is full of nutrients you tend to get that “full feeling” when you eat junk aka food that is not full of nutrients you tend to eat more because your body is not getting full of nutrients. Why is something so simple so hard for me to grasp? One thing that really stood out for me was when I am about to eat something, I should ask myself “Is this good or bad for me”

We are starting to talk to H about strangers. There is a thin line with this subject. While we don’t want H to live in fear we also don’t want her to feel comfortable going up to complete strangers. Since I am a diehard Bernstein Bares Fan, We’ve been reading, The Berenstain Bears Learn about Strangers.. I feel like it’s a little long for H. I'm looking for something a little more on her level..Anyone have suggestions?

I’ve deemed March as “Get it together” month. I’ve heard lots of great things about the Advocare 10day cleanse. Has anyone tried it? What did you think about it?

Everyone needs a laugh and a warm fuzzy feeling

I couldn't resist... I had to share this...

Something to make you laugh:

Something to make you cry: (but in a warm fuzzy feeling way)Grab your kleenex

Vday 2014

Can you feel the love in the air… aaah…? Valentine’s Day…Isn’t love beautiful? I’m sure most women were woken up with flowers and breakfast in bed. Which is fantastic just not my cup of tea. I was woken up with H’s foot in my rib and my dog snoring, yet I still had a smile on my face. I desperately wanted an ice cold glass of water (to help this wine hang over) this morning only to find that the fridge went out sometime during the night. So like any strong independent women, I went and woke M up to deal with it. I don’t have a clue how to fix a fridge. I could be pissed and throw a fit but I thought eh, so what who cares. It will be fixed. Happy V-day to us… nothing says I love you like a new fridge.

Rewind 8 years ago we used to make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day. I’d always get a dozen of roses delivered at work. We’d be all gushy to each other during the day. We never went out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. I can’t handle the crowds. We’d make dinner and snuggle up on the couch together. (We still do that)Then we got married. And the flowers stopped. Ha, isn’t it funny how your priorities change? Now, I’m all “if you even think about sending me a bouquet of overprice flowers that are going to die in a week, I’m going to be mad” I can totally find somewhere else to spend 100 bucks.

Instead of making it a big fuss about us today…we make it a big deal for H. This morning when I made it to the kitchen I noticed M put out a bunch of V-day surprises for H on the kitchen table. This is going to make her day when she wakes up. I hate that I’m not going to be there to see it. Tonight I suggested we take her to Chick-Fil-a. Have you seen what they are doing for V-day? Tonight only they are changing from a day to day fast food restaurant to a fancy white table cloth wine and dine experience. (Minus the wine) H is going to love it.

Tomorrow night we are going to the Festival of Lights. The weather is supposed to be in the 60’s. What a perfect night to walk around drinking wine and looking at lanterns floating in the sky…I’ll do just about anything to be outside sipping on some vino.

Hope everyone enjoys the abundant pictures of bouquet of roses on Facebook today… their Valentine’s day!!

What are your plans for today?

Happy Hump Day…everyone!!

This week I am saying so what…

If I took an extra day off this week. I wasn’t feeling well and the lady in charge was driving me bat shit crazy so I went home. Once I got home and ate lunch, I felt perfectly fine. I think I was confusing sickness with hunger.

If I started painting the kitchen island and ended up redecorating the entire kitchen. Now it looks amazing.

If I pretend I don’t hear my %$#@ when she talks (NON-stop) to me all day long. I pretend my music is too loud. #firemeidontcare

If I took a picture of M when he had toilet paper hanging from his pants. Can we say blackmail!

If I started straightening H’s hair. She loves it and we no longer have to battle her to brush her hair.

If next week we are headed to STL and I cannot absolutely wait to A. celebrate D’s 18th birthday (GASP) #cheerstonomorechildsupport B. see Marcia from YEAR TWENTY NINE and see my bestie’s new baby!! EEEK!!!

If I’ve been drinking Pepsi, I never drink soda but I got a little taste of the sweet nectar and now I can’t stop.

What are you saying so what to this Wednesday!!!

Things I don’t believe in…

I’m an open book. Just ask my friends. There are tons of things I believe in such as getting my hair done every week, day drinking, flipping the bird behind someone’s back, chugging a beer in the garage when I’m about to lose my shit. I mean the list goes on. But there are a few things I do not believe in. Want to hear about it? Good. Echem

Blasting your drama on Facebook

Really? No one cares about your drama. I mean secretly everyone loves watching your life unfold on the internet but really. Keep that shit off Facebook. No one cares that you hate your husband today or your so called best friend won’t respond to your text messages.

Couples sitting on the same side of the table at a restaurant.

You know what I’m talking about. We’ve all seen it. What is up with that? I’m all for a little closeness. But sit your ass on the other side of the table. That just looks awkward.

Women paying on the first date.

Um, this is a big no no. I have few friends who aren’t married and I constantly remind them that they should never be paying during the courting stage. Yes, offer but he should be paying. Duh.

People who let dogs lick them in the mouth

I mean to each their own but can we just reflect on the fact that they lick their butts.

Using the Bible app in church

Seriously people. Just bring your bible. We all know you’re browsing other apps and not really paying attention.

What are some things you don't belive in..I am dying to see if I'm the only crazy one..

Five Things Friday

H and I survived a week without M. Thank goodness for FaceTime. Night time was no fun; H is such a daddy’s girl especially at night time. I just wasn’t cutting it last night. Its ok H, I only carried you for 9 months gained 50 pounds I’m not at all offended that you prefer your dad at night. I digress. I was worried he’d get snowed in STL. BUT he said come hell or high water he was coming home tonight. EEK, I miss his face. #hestillgivesmebutterflies

Since we are getting more winter weather this weekend, I’m plan on doing some DIY projects. I will be attempting this. #sayaprayer

My eating is has been stellar this week (for the most part) I have a sweet tooth like no bodies business. I think I have crack the case… Diet Dr. Pepper. I’m not a soda drinker at all. Like can’t stand it, makes my belly hurt. BUT when I need something sweet, I’ve drank a Diet. Dr. Pepper. I never finish an entire can and yes I know soda is terrible for you but hey so is being overweight.

Have you seen these? Has anyone tried them? It has to be good right. It’s OREO.

My besties sent me this last night. I can’t stop laughing.

Everyone have a great weekend.

Thursday Thoughts

I’m digging deep down in my crazy bag and spewing all the random thoughts out on this blog today.

1.Thank you baby Jesus it’s Thursday. It’s been a LONG week. M is out of town and I am beyond excited to see his blond hair and blue eyes tomorrow. Pray the STL weather doesn’t snow him in and he makes it home. Raise your hand if you are over this winter weather.

2.I don’t mean to be ignorant but does anyone ever wish they can yell “SHUT THE EFF up” at work without getting fired? I’m pretty sure I would get fired. I work with an office FULL of chatty Cathy’s and I swear my ears hurt by 4:30. I mean I love a little coffee talk in the morning, but when I am at my desk and you are randomly talking and I don’t look up, that means I’m ignoring you. It does not mean to talk louder OR to just stare at me like a creeper. It means I don’t want to talk. AND another thing. If my head phones are in, that also means I don’t want to participate in your convo about how you got ground chuck for $3.99 a pound at food giant. #idon’tcare. (reason #12 why I am going back to school)

3.HI I’m Amie and I have Bieber Fever. I know little JB has been in a smidge of trouble lately. BUT I can’t get enough of his music lately (see above random thought…I listen to a lot of music at work) I am currently obsessed with these two JB songs.

                         He may want to take a bic to that peach fuzz. just saying.
4.Am I too old for these shoes? I just think they are adorable.
5.I need to make this outfit happen.
6.So a few friends of mine are trying to put a six person team together for this race. We are short one person. Raise your hand if you think D from Macke Monologues should make her first trip to STL to drink wine run this race with us?
7.I found this adorable scarf from Olive and Hazel. You got to check them out. Oh and they have FREE SHIPPING

Make it a good day!!

Monday Musings

Did everyone survive Super Bowl last night? I can honestly say I didn’t watch one second of the Super Bowl. I know, my husband lowers his head in shame. I’m just not a football girl. I can only fake it if I’m surrounded by friends, nachos and booze. Since we were lacking all three of those important ingredients last night, I hit the treadmill and caught up on Blood Sweat and Heels. Have you seen it? I’m pretty sure I am a spawn of Mica.

This post will be short and sweet. I have 800 people to pay and nurses tend to be a little cray cray when you mess with their money.

This week’s goals:

1.Keep the six pound off from last week
2.Lose 4 pounds
3.Run every day
4.Eat clean
5.No booze during the week. Disclaimer: Thursday I am hosting Bunco. I will be drinking. #i’mahorriblelier
6.Try not to lose my shit since M is out of town all week

I’ll leave you with this article

25 signs you drink too much wine

Make it a good week!
