Hey guys! 
I found this link up from Ms. Jen's blog That's What She Read!
Linking up with Harvesting Kale

I had one hell of night last night! 
My head is POUNDING!
Way too much fun last night BFF!

Currently I'm

LOVING: Having the weekend off with my babies! Landon is going to Monster Jam with Dane on Saturday                        and he is BEYOND excited!!!!!!! & walking into my bff's house last night and seeing her entire house decorated for Stell's party this weekend!!! She is an amazing mommy!!!! < 3

WISHING: I didn't feel so horrible today. shots on a week night is bad news. terrible decisions were made.

CRAVING: everything in sight. I.Need.Food!!

MISSING: My babies sleeping with me. Yes. I said it. This week I was on the mission to get Landon to sleep upstairs in his bed, and Layla to finally sleep in her crib for the first time. (yes, the first time) First night was rough. they were both in bed with me at 2 and 3am. Since then, they have both slept peacefully all night.
I need to get a pic of Layla sleeping in her crib. Home girl sprawls herself out. She is probably thinking I can finally move!!!! haha

WORRYING: About how much it's going to cost to get my licenses back. Damnit. 

My good luck streak has finally ran out. :(  I deserved it, I'll pay for it. Boo! 
Damn heavy foot and car that drives so smooth!

Hope everyone has a great day! I'm going to pop a couple ibuprofen and shove my face with the greasiest food I can find then feel like complete ass afterwards. Boom! 
Happy Thursday!

I'm Baaaaaack!

Hey girl hey! 
We have a lot of catching up to do!
Let's just start with there is NO WAY I could travel for a living. 
I got back to STL on Friday night and I still feel exhausted. I can't seem to get caught up on my sleep!!
I spent all last week in San Antone (you know, because that's what the locals call it..)
A lot of standing around at the conference in shoes that I should not have even packed. But I got a few good leads and I've been busy at work the past few days putting it all together.

Lets rewind a bit.
Day 1
Tuesday morning I was up bright and early to head to the airport. Obviously too early for L&L. They tried to be troopers and hang out before I left, but it was just too much!

We arrived at the airport only to get there and find out plane has been delayed by about 5 hours. Luckily we were able to catch another flight but had to route to Chicago. 
I was a little excited. I've never been to Chicago before. Even though I would mainly only see the airport, MAYBE be able to go somewhere to lunch outside of the airport.
i am not a fan of the snow. i was glad to be leaving this!

We were late to leave, which meant we were late to arrive. 
So you know what happened next.. Bill turns to me and asks if I'm ready to run. I laughed, thinking he was kidding.
wrong. He took off running! Here is am trailing behind him in heels, running as fast as I can through the airport.
We BARELY made it!!!
I was in Chicago for 11 minutes. Wow!
The flight wasn't bad. I had a few cocktails to calm my nerves!

We arrived early evening just in time to see our booth and join in on the happy hour. (perfect!)
Bill (my boss) and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at some fancy Italian restaurant then went to a club for a few drinks and shots.
I introduced my boss to my favorite shot, a Vegas bomb. he approved.
Have I mentioned how awesome my boss is?? I think I have. But in case you forgot, He is AWESOME!!!!

Wednesday. Day 2
Booth Duty. 
Little did we know, we could get padding under our carpet. 
Lesson learned for every convention from here on out.
absolutely love this dress. it's 20% off right now. getchu one! ;)
These are my favorite heels. I wear them ALL THE TIME. By the end of the day- I wanted to burn them.
I ended up opting for these.
Cowboy boot slippers. 
Only in Texas.
I headed out of the convention with a hour to spare. I jumped in a cab and found the closest shoe store. 
Payless 2 miles away. Score!
I bought a pair of wedges and a pair of tall boots. BOGO, have to get two!
And I put on the wedges and decided I would walk back. WRONG DECISION.
I got half way back and my feet were bleeding. Literally.
Why I had the genius idea to walk back in shoes that are not broken in.
I put back on the cowboy boot slippers and walked the rest of the way.
Still got hit on. Boom! ha!

Later that night was our Shell party. We headed to Howl at the Moon. 
(hands down, my favorite bars are piano bars!!!!)
skirt and top from maruices
Bought these little sleazy leopard fishnet tights for $.86 at Payless and rocked them. Felt like a hooker all night, and i liked it!
This is B! :)

Thursday- Day 3
Booth Duty again 
(got smart this day and wore flat boots)
Dress from KiKi La'Rue

and 30 people asking me if I made it back to my hotel ok. 

My response? Yep, did I see you last night? 
Sorry for partying!
After a long day at the convention and get several great leads I was glad it was over!

I met up with my new friend Angie from Destin FL and we had a GREAT TIME!!!!
God Bless Texas!

Friday- Day 4
Early meeting and traveling most of the day. 
The convention was so much fun! I met a ton of people I talk to on a weekly basis, and met a few people that I can call friends!

But let me tell you. I MISSED MY BABIES.  I couldn't get home quick enough. 
Whew! Glad I don't have to do it very often!
Came home to my favorite home cooked meal (good hubby)
and  I can't tell you how excited I was to come home to this
bahahaha oh Landon! Yes, yes that is a maxim magazine. 
He brought it to me a few weeks ago and said "Mommy, will you read this to me."
Ummmm no buddy, I think this is one daddy has to read to you! lol

lay is a momma's girl. she was up my butt for 3 days straight. i missed you too baby girl!!! xoxoxoxo

Saturday morning we headed to Creative Bent for our mini Valentine's Day session, 
spent the afternoon at Chuck E Cheese
then spent a majority of the evening with one of my favorite couples EVERRRRRRRRR.
Our kiddos played together so good and Landon has asked for his friends to come over every day since!

Sunday I had another work convention then came home and hung out with my bff and her littles!
Exhausting weekend, and work has been crazy ever since!
I will try not to get so behind on blogging! (keyword: try)

Tonight is margaritas with my bff. thats right. NO KIDS.
girl time.

Happy Hump Day!!!

Wrap up!

Right into this.

Friday night was awesome. Just me and L&L!
We did a little shopping at wal-mart then dinner.
Landon insisted on Taco Bell for a quesadilla. 
I however, Cannot eat ANYTHING from there right now. So I ordered off Applebee's weight watchers menu and got food to go.
Let's just say the Jalapeno-Lime Shrimp was AMAZEBALLS.
and only 300 calories. BOOM!

running til my legs almost fell off.
delish food.
detoxing. (i love itworks!!!!!!)

Saturday was a lazy day.
Lay was up bright at early at 7 and Landon decided to be a sleep head
Landon showed off his big guns
and lay rocked her new sunglasses from target!

 Saturday night I went out with these lovely ladies to watch the Blues KICK DETROIT'S ASS!!!!
Mom's night out!
We thought we were pretty clever.
Many drinks later and white castle at midnight. I was so excited to go to bed!
Momma was exhausted!

Sunday was full of playing firefighter and cops, papa john's and Jillian Michael's kicking my ass!!!

Tomorrow I am Texas bound.
I am having bad anxiety already.
Tuesday-Friday without my babies. :((((((
Thank god for face time!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!

ps. my favorite song officially has a video. CHECK IT!

Oh Baby!

If you haven't seen my facebook post yet, keep reading..

but before you read any further...


OK. Now that's clear, we can continue.
A few girls were taking a silly "how many kids are you going to have" test on Facebook  I thought Ah what the hell, why not. So I took it. 
Here are my results:
Uhhh. You have got to me kidding me.
Maybe Landon's twin was a boy?? Could be.
Then we got to talking about some neat little pencil trick. Chick HERE to see what in the world I'm talking about.
So I get to work this morning and I'm thinking about it non stop. Seriously, curiosity KILLS me.
Then I remember my dress ripping at the hotel last Friday night in Nashville 
and I had a needle in thread in my purse still thanks to the awesome front desk at our hotel.
So.. Here goes nothing..

Might be the craziest thing EVER. I'm still in shock. lol

SO if you try it, let me know your results. I'm dying to know your results!

Whew, post something personal and the anonymous skeletons who read your blog come right out of the closet.
Moving on!

So fellow blogger did a post a couple weeks ago about free glasses.
As most of you know I have to wear glasses all day everyday.
I am damn near blind and can't wear contacts. I've tired. Not once, not twice, but 5 different times. 
The kill my eyes. Some I could wear all day, but by the end of the day my eyes hurt so bad I couldn't blink or it was completely foggy (no they weren't on wrong lol)
Anyways. Anything free I'm all about. So I did a little research on if they were legit and decided wth!
Got my prescription from my eye doctor and placed my order that same day!
$6.95 total. (you have to pay shipping)
2 weeks later they arrived!
I know, I look thrilled. It was early.
I'm not sure how I feel about them.
They are a little big for my face. But I can see and I won't complain about a free pair of glasses!
Especially if they come with all this too!

I'm thinking about order another pair now!
use coupon code:  firmoofree
If you order, show me your glasses when you get them in!

It's official people!
My son has his first crush.
I bet you are wondering 'who is she???'
well. I have no idea.
She is on the commercial on tv. Every time the commercial comes on, Landon makes me rewind it and pause it.
He said 'i like her mommy, she is pretty'.
I laughed. and then cried.
My baby thinks someone is pretty other than his mommy. Waahhh!
Might be the sweetest thing ever!

 Speaking of the sweetest thing ever.
It was incredibly hard to get out of bed and leave this morning.
< 3

Are you a country music fan & live in the St. Louis area? 
or want to come see me for a concert this summer:
I love megatickets!!!

Have a great Thursday!

sometimes all you have left is revenge.

Happy Wednesday!
Not so Happy Landon has tonsillitis. Poor little guy has been sick since late Friday night.
Happy January is half way over. Closer to warmer weather. Haaay!
Not so Happy I will be in Texas from Tuesday-Friday next week.. without my babies!
 I want to cry just thinking about it.
Happy someone got what they deserve.
'Light 'em up and watch them burn
Teach them what they need to learn, ha'
Not so Happy the glory of it isn't at all as great as I thought it would be.

I'm going to touch on the subject of revenge for a minute.
How do you react when someone does you wrong?
I don't mean stands you up, or borrows money from you and doesn't repay you.
I'm talking screws up a major part of your life. and they go on with their day like nothing has happened.
THEN they start doing it to someone else, right in front of your face.
Lets be honest ladies. 
Do you mind your own, hoping it stops?
Do you speak up?
What do you do?

I took action. 
well, it's been a long process. The past 3 months I've debated on if it was worth it.
I've lost sleep, I couldn't concentrate at work, it's effected my relationship with friends, family and my marriage.
And I originally thought to myself, this person DESERVES this. how can they continue what they are doing, and go about their day like they've done NOTHING wrong.
well. The glory of it sucks.
Guilt is a powerful affliction. You can try to turn your back on it, but that's when it sneaks up behind you and eats you alive. Some people struggle to understand their own guilt, unwilling or unable to justify the part they play in it. Others run away from their guilt, shading their conscience until there's no conscience left at all.
I feel guilty. As I probably should.
Just hope I am not alone on this feeling.. Because I shouldn't be.

Nashville Weekend Recap - Pic Overload

Are y'all ready for this??
(see what I did there? brought a little Nashville home with me!)

I wish each picture could tell you exactly how much fun we had. Seriously, Friday night was hands down one of the BEST nights I have had in a long time!

Friday Cass & I headed out.
XM radio and girl talk the entire way! The ride flew by!
And we were in Tennessee before we knew it!
 Home of the Tennessee Titans and the Batman building. Aka At&t. but it looked pretty damn neat!

We arrived at the hotel, got ready Nikki & Amanda showed up!
Let me tell you, I was SOOO EXCITED to meet her, but even more excited to see she wasn't some fat bald guy I had been talking to over the Internet for the past 6 months.
Too much catfish lately!

We stocked our mini fridge, got a shit ton of nasty food from the hotel, that we didn't eat, then headed out for the night! 

Take 1
Take 2 
 Downtown Nashville
 This was early into the night...and I'm pretty sure my vision was as clear as these pictures.

 this might be the coolest bar in Nashville....and probably the 1 and only bar we didn't drink at.
But of course I had to go in and buy a shirt! ;)

 more shopping

recap of the night! 

Nikki, My Southern Belle! XO

 so much fun!!!!

and our night ended early. well 1am-ish. a hell of a lot earlier than I expected.
Our cab ride back to the hotel consisted of the windows down...and this.
then as soon as we arrived at the some of us fell out of the cab.
 still throwing the peace sign. 
love ya girl. just glad I'm not the only one who ended up on the ground! 
Thankful we have no pictures of that!

 Saturday afternoon we had to drag our self out of bed for a little tour of downtown.
 Disappointed we didn't run into LB. But this was close enough!  

nothing like being embarrassed at lunch by a 10 ft pirate 

Night 2
Amanda <3 font="font">

Poor Cass, sick as a dog and still being a trooper and hanging out with us!
 shotski with straight vodka.

 Sunday we headed back.
Poor Cass was sick the entire way back. then we got stuck in pouring down rain, sleet AND snow. blah

 Dane and the kids picked me up at Cassie's house as soon as we got back. I couldn't help but cry! 
I don't know how I would have survived the weekend without face time.
Overall, It was a AWESOME weekend!!!!
I gained 2 amazing new friends!!!!
Loving life!

Landon is under the weather with the flu. BOO! Prayers appreciated! Poor little man is miserable!!

Back to work today. 
I definitely could have used another day of rest.
but I already purchased a dress I seen a girl in on Saturday. 
Seriously, LOVE.
It has Cancun written ALL OVER IT!
100 days!!!

Have a great week!!!
