Happy Birthday

to my pops!!

I kinda love this picture because my dad is SOOOO not a country-western type of person. He likes the songs about drinking, but not much else. This was at grandpa's party last month.

I'm pretty sure I've said all that there is to say about my dad. He took me to baseball games when I was little and just watched Game 2 of the World Series with me last week. He always has an adult beverage to offer when I'm there. He got me started on Stephen King when I was in junior high. He gave me clever lies to tell my niece and nephews. I'm scared of what he may say to my own kids one day, but I learned pretty quick, so hopefully they will too.

Happy birthday dad! Love you!

Friday Photo

Okay, so it's FINALLY HALLOWEEKEND!!!!! Our party may end up being a bust (I'll grumble about that later), but we're going to have fun anyway!

Last week I gave you a sneak peek at part of a costume. Here's another one... not that any of you will know what I'm going to be still...

Same wig, crown courtesy of my pops. This is pre-spray paint (it's gold now). Hmmm... princesses wear crowns... any ideas yet? haha I bet most of you would never know. I'll OF COURSE have pictures up next week.

Now excuse me while I get ready for the fun to come this weekend! Happy Friday!!!

It's a SUPER busy week. I constantly have something to do, so the wish list had to take a back seat.

But at least I'm being responsible and doing what needs to be done! Right?

Happy Wednesday friends.

5 Things

Fall is FINALLY here. My bed gained another blanket, I actually run the heater in my car sometimes in the morning, and hubby already made a pumpkin cheesecake. I love fall. It's such a relief after our summers.

5 Things I Love About Fall
  1. Boots - Stores have countless cute ones that make me drool. Seeing as how I have a job this year I may actually be able to buy some!
  2. Soup - Okay so soup is totally a winter food too, but on days like yesterday (cool, windy, chance at rain all day) soup totally hits the spot. Especially when you haven't had it for months.
  3. Halloween - Kind of a given, right? Y'all know I'm obsessed with the holiday. And I'm super stoked for our costumes this year.
  4. Baseball - Specifically playoffs. It's rare that hubby or myself actually have one of our teams end up there, but this year hubby's team made it to the World Series and we're ready to cheer them on. Go Giants!!
  5. The weather - Summer here didn't seem as bad after spending a sticky week in Florida. But I'm definitely ready for the wind and storms that have been making appearances over the last week.

There ya go. What do you love about fall? I know that very soon I'll be loving pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting...

Monday Coolness

Let's just preface this with something. Some of you will not find this amusing. Some of you will be confused.

That said, I freakin' pink sparkly heart Adventure Time. It's the best part of my Mondays.

Hubby and I have this on our phones. Unfortch it's too long for a ringtone. *sad face* But I listen to it every now and then.

Happy Monday. And if you don't enjoy my randomness... well I just don't know.

Friday Photo

Hello there! Just popping in to give you a quick photo. I've got an INSANE amount to do so this'll be quick.

I'm diggin' my new look.

Okay so no, I didn't dye my hair pink. But I always wanted to. And I need pink hair for one of my costumes. I kind of wore the wig all night last night. I like pink hair on me. Too bad I'm a grown up and have to have this thing called a job. Most people don't want their kid's teacher to have pink hair...
I'm off to start the crazy busy stuff! Happy Friday!

Hey there. No coolness for ya today. Because I'm just not feeling the coolness at the moment. Things are a little overwhelming around these parts lately. I'd like to say that my blog won't suffer, but I can't promise that at the moment. Just send lots of prayers, happy thoughts and the like my way.

It's Friday again! Two days that I should be able to relax but we all know it won't actually happen! Woo hoo!!

So when I uploaded my pictures the other night I came across this one and it just made me smile.

Boys. Enough said, right? They were in the field with the sheep at my mother-in-law's house a few weeks ago. Torturing the poor sheep. And yes, Tad is out there. In the green shirt.


Happy Friday!

Hey There...

Know where this is posted from? Do ya? DO YA??

My new computer!!!! Yaaaaay!!

Let's celebrate with a photo, shall we? I know it's not Friday, but I love y'all so much and my new friend makes it so easy to upload photos!

Took this a couple weeks ago. This house is just sitting there on one of the backroads I sometimes take home from work. It's amazing. I of course did some editing (with my new software, woot!), but the thing looks amazing as is. Someday I'll get out there with some nice late afternoon lighting and take some pictures. Pretty sure they could potentially come out INSANE AWESOME.

Happy Thursday friends. Tomorrow is Friday!!

5 Things

So I was supposed to have pictures. But my laptop knows his days are numbered so he decided not to read my camera.

Jerk. Enjoy torturing me while you can.

So let's go basic...

5 Things I Love Right Now
  1. My house all decorated for Halloween. Totally not done, but I love what we have so far.
  2. Pizza and beer on a Monday. Last night we went out because hubby won a bet he made with a couple coworkers. FUN.
  3. My computer WILL come today. Hubby is home all day to wait for it!!!
  4. Sales. Scored perfect-fitting jeans for less than twenty bucks a pop yesterday.
  5. Glee is on tonight!
So happy Tuesday. I'm going to look for the little things to make me happy.

Monday Coolness

It's Monday again. Yay? Boo?

At least we're that much closer to Halloween. And I have a fun video for you.

Happy Monday.

Hola. No brand spankin' new pictures for you. But next week... oh next week if I get the time, you'll be in for pictures like crazy.

My new computer should be here tomorrow.

*cue angels singing and light shining from the heavens*

And seeing as how my new computer will let me plug the memory card in directly, I should have no excuse for not uploading pictures.

Not that you're not getting a good one today. Prepare to be dazzled.

That is me with my mighty fine husband and brother. I think this is my favorite picture of us EVER. Now that I think about it, I believe I'll print it out using my brand new printer (that's right, I WAY upgraded over here). Grandpa needs a copy. And mom. And me...

Happy Friday all! Have a fabulous day!

No wish list today. SOMEONE *cough*Comcast*cough* has the worst internet service ever and caused us to lose internet two nights in a row. I really do need to cancel them already.

Anyhow, if I get time later I'll put it up, because I found some cool stuff last night before we lost the ability to check out the rest of the world.

So for today, a couple quick things:
  • If you're headed out toward west Fresno, Kerman or anything that direction watch for fog and the Highway Patrol. The fog isn't bad or anything, but it's there. And I saw at least 4 CHP vehicles on my way to work. And I don't even take the freeway!
  • I'm torn on whether or not I want it to rain. I love the rain and the gray skies. But kids get antsy when they can't go outside...
  • I wore boots with heels to work today. We'll see if this was a dumb decision or not.

Happy Wednesday all, hopefully I'll be able to get a wish list up at some point.

5 Things

Hey all. I almost forgot to post. *gasp* But no worries, I'm here to entertain you. Because I have nothing specific on my mind, I went for random today.

5 Things About... Well, Life in General
  1. I'm loving the clouds we have in the morning. The fact that they're gone by lunch? Not so much. Bring on the rain!!!
  2. Tad is all better now. In case you missed it, he stayed with me Saturday night and woke up sick Sunday morning. To the point that he stayed home from school yesterday. Instead of going home he stayed with hubby. Now I miss the little punk fiercely.
  3. I've been going to bed early. Like, I-won't-even-tell-you-because-it-makes-me-feel-old early.
  4. 25 days to Halloween. The decorating has begun at home. We're super stoked to see neighbors decorating too. Could we be living in an awesome neighborhood? Where people actually trick or treat?
  5. I really miss sleeping in with hubby. I can't wait for Veteran's Day. I plan on doing a lot of nothing.

And there you are. Five totally random things on my mind. There were actually more, but then it wouldn't fit the title, would it?

Happy Tuesday!

Monday Coolness

You wanna see some seriously amazing little boys?

How cute are they? They're brothers. And they're pretty much amazing at mixed martial arts. I think I want to train our kids to be this good one day.

Hope everyone is having a not-bad Monday. The little man is home with hubby today after running a fever and all that good business yesterday. We're hoping he should be able to go home tonight. It's no fun being sick. :( He was definitely NOT himself and it made me sad.

Friday Photo

It's Friiiiday. *happy dance* And I have another picture for you. Can you tell I'm finally balancing the teaching/regular life thing?

I decided to share a picture from our last trip to the range. Because I kinda like it...

Okay, I don't look super skinny or anything and I'm still willing to post it. Mom thought I was posing, I was really just reaching into my back pocket for a full magazine. But I like it because I kinda remind myself of Michelle Rodriguez. A couple friends say so too. Pardon the potty mouth, but I think I look pretty bad-a**. haha

Speaking of shooting, I ordered my new computer. Know what that means? The horrible beast that is my laptop will soon meet it's demise at the range.

Muah ha ha haaaaaa!

Yeah I could probably get a couple bucks for it or whatever. But I think taking the shotgun to it would be more therapeutic. If you care to join me let me know.

Happy Friday!!
