Take a photo Tuesday

I was having a crappy end of the day and then I come home and start checking blogs and find out that I won my first photo challenge!  The picture is my awesome heels and my boyfriend's boots. He had just come home from drill and his boots were there by the door and I just thought it would make an awesome picture and I was right! Here's the picture from last week in case you didn't see it.

(Yes Ms. Bernie I will most definitely be framing this one!)

Here's my entry for this week.  Something Blue

I won this piggy bank at a baby shower.  Cute huh?

Music Monday - Singer or Band with one name


I heard this song on the radio the other.  It brought back some good memories.

"This ain't lust, I know, this is love" Favorite line of that song

Not so sure about the video, but the song is awesome.

Because I have a weird sense of humor. Here ya go!

Meet Me on Monday

1.  What is your favorite food?
Pizza! There is some in the fridge downstairs that I am currently trying to ignore. 

2.  What color scheme is your bedroom?
Cheap rental. White walls, beige-ish carpet. It's lovely, really

3.  Do you carry a donor card?
No, I believe it's on the bar code on the back of my fancy new driver's license.

4.  In your opinion, is the glass half empty or half full?
Half full. I try to be optimistic. See? I'm trying now and it's working!

5.  Vanilla or Chocolate?
Some times vanilla, some times chocolate. I'm greedy, I want both.

Shit I Hate Sunday

Shit I Hate . . . . . . fuckers that park with the ass end of their vehicle blocking the sidewalk. You have tons of room in front of your car/truck/SUV. Move up so people can actually use the sidewalk. It's called a sideWALK not a sidePARK.

Shit I Hate . . . . . . the busywork homework they're giving us the last four weeks of class. Lame! 

Shit I Hate . . . . . . people that take up three machines at a time at the gym.  You're not the only one here douche bag.

Shit I Hate . . . . . . not being able to go buy better running shoes.  Getting paid only once a month sucks.

Shit I Hate . . . . . . still living with my parents. Don't get me wrong, they're cool as hell, but they're my parents. I miss having my own house.

Six Word Saturday

Home invasion by six young boys.

My nephews arrived at 6:30am this morning.  My brother is an HVAC tech, so when it gets hot he works mass overtime.  Unfortunately he also works Saturdays and his wife is in the local academy which means we babysit.  There was no sleeping in this morning.  I would have made it until 7am. Possibly. How sad is that, sleeping in for me is 7am.

Fill In The Blank Friday

1.   The last thing I ate was       a southwest caesar salad from Fresh & Easy. Soooooooo goooooooddddd. I love the dressing and it's only about 350 calories with the dressing. Pure awesomeness.

2.  The next thing I'd like to eat is    boarding house potatoes from Sandy's here in town.  I have been craving them for days.

3.  The best things     are children that don't whine constantly. Seriously, the boy just woke up and came into my room to complain about the heat. Hello! It's summer.  I don't possess the ability to control the temperature outside. Sit under the fan!

4.  Something that makes me supremely and utterly happy is   seeing Jason play with the kids and the way their faces light up when they hear he's coming over, (and no dear, it's not just because of the dog).

5.  Sports are     annoying when the televised games take over shows I would normally watch.  I honestly couldn't care less about basketball or just about anything else. I tolerate the soccer because most of the time Jason smells good and I can cuddle with him and take a nap while he watches it. It's all about compromise folks.

6.  I miss       having the time I did when I was a stay at home mom. Darn school and having a job. Having my own money is nice though. 

7.  Right now I am       thinking about what to have for breakfast  . 

Five Question Friday

1. What is your current favorite tv show?
The Voice. I didn't think I would like it, but it's actually pretty good.  American Idol was disappointing this year so I guess The Voice took over for me.

2. What's the worst haircut you ever got?
I asked for layers and the crazy lady did some sort of razor cut using a straight razor to make the layers and my hair stood straight up, no matter what I did. I cried for like two hours. I think I was 18 at the time.  My mom tried to help me and nothing we did could get it to lay down flat. I work a hat for 6 weeks.

3. What was something that you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing?
I don't know. I always thought I was the nerd of the group.  *sigh* Let's not get into my self-esteem issues.  

4. Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips?
Go to the library! It's cool inside there, they have story time, and you can get videos, books, and even video games for free! 

5. Would you drive across country if you had the money to fly?
Do I have my kids with me? Because they might not survive the drive.  If it's just be and my love, then I'd say drive. I actually like to drive. Road trips are fun.

Edit me

Wow, blogger is really not wanting to put the pictures the way I want them!  First I cropped the image, then using Picknik I ran auto fix and added a vignette framed and changed it to green instead of black.  Then I used the cross process effect and changed the setting to 75%. Finally I used the adjustable threshold effect in screen mode to get the light effect just right.  To me it looks like you're peeking through the leaves.
