I seriously could just snuggle up in a blanket and drink a latte or a mocha right about now. Its just one of those days. This morning it snowed a bunch (weird!) and Its just the perfect day to get cozy!

Emma is asleep, so I should probably get off here and take a catnap! ;)

I cut off TONS of Emma's hair tonight. She needed it so bad. In a previous blog before xmas I wrote about how Emma cut her own hair! :(

Well, I let it grow out a tiny bit (It was in the front, not short thank goodness but do her shoulders, making it look alittle awkward becuase her hair whent down her back. Anyways- here is what it looks like now:

I like it. It looks healthier, and now LAYERED, and not like she cut it lol!

My family and friends said it was hard to even notice, but being a hairstylist, It stuck out soooo much to me, so I am so happy I fixed it!


Lost the few lbs I seemed to pickup last week. Now I am back on track!


Finally got Emma's Leapster. (If you haven't read, Emma got one for Xmas, it wouldn't even turn on so the company sent me a new one- seriously SUCH a hassle)
The wait of course was awful, and totally unacceptable, but since she loves it so much I am sure ill buy her even more games for it- Even though I would love to BOYCOTT them lol

FINALLY after 2+ months Emma has her Xmas Leapster gift. Lets not forget to mention the fact that THEY wanted me to pay to ship the broken product that I bought from them, uh no. I got that corrected REAL quick, then waited a week and a half for shipping labels *rolls eyes* then waited a few weeks to receive it- she has it! It really sucked for her too because she has about 8 games as gifts, so of course, no console, no playing any of them. :(

Anyways- Shes in love with it, and at the end of the day, I'm happy that SHES happy. lol


My work! Seriously, the girls there are sooooo fun... (and wild) lol

They all were wanting to take me to get my nose pierced. I have wanted it done, but I just don't know. I am scared about scarring, and I want it to look good, and not TRASHY. lol We will see! They want to go Saturday. My mom won't be pleased with me at all.. lol

2. Recite the Our Father on the first large (or single) bead.

3. On each of the three small beads, recite a Hail Mary for an increase of faith, hope and charity.

4. Recite the Glory Be to the Father after the third Hail Mary.

5. Recall the first Rosary Mystery and then recite the Our Father on the next large bead.

6. On each of the adjacent ten small beads (also referred to as a decade) recite a Hail Mary while reflecting on the first mystery.

7. After the tenth Hail Mary, recite a Glory Be to the Father and the Fatima Prayer.

8. Each succeeding decade is prayed in a similar manner by recalling the appropriate mystery, reciting an Our Father, ten Hail Marys, the Glory Be to the Father, Fatima Prayer (optional) while reflecting on the mystery.

9. When the fifth mystery is completed, the Rosary is customarily concluded with a Hail, Holy Queen, and then the closing prayer(s).

10. For the intentions of the Holy Father, one may recite at the end of the Rosary one "Our Father", one "Hail Mary", and one "Glory Be".

Prayers of the Most Holy Rosary

Sign of the Cross -

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Fatima Prayer

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of Hell; lead all souls into Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen.

Closing Prayers

Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

P. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us Pray: O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant, we beseech Thee that in meditating upon these mysteries of the most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Optional Closing Prayers

Heart of Jesus

May the Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament be praised adored, and loved with grateful affection at every moment in all the tabernacles of the world even until the end of time.

Prayer to St. Joseph

O, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer, my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers. O, St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls - Pray for me. Amen.

Prayer to St. Therese

St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grand me the favor I thee implore and tell Him I will love Him each day, more and more. St. Therese of the Holy Face of Jesus, pray for us. Amen.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto Thee, O virgin of virgins, my Mother. To Thee I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.

The Miracle Prayer
Lord Jesus, I come before you, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent all of my sins, please forgive me. In your name, I forgive all others for what they done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever, I invite you into my life, Jesus, I accept you as my Lord God and Savior. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit. Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your HOLY SPIRIT, I LOVE YOU LORD JESUS. I PRAISE YOU JESUS, I THANK YOU JESUS. I shall follow you every day of my life, AMEN.
Mary my mother , Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you angels and Saints please help me. Amen.

Just got home!

We went to the store real quick becuase I needed to get some detergent, and softener, as well as some children's cough medicine (yup, my poor baby is SICK!)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Anyways- Emma cashed in and got alot of stuff that she probably doesn't need, but since she was a good girl today, I let her pick out some stuff. She got a dora ball, a carebear sticker book, coloring books, and some dry erase markers (we are working on spelling her name)

Leaving the store I was thinking man, she shouldn't have gotten all this. But sitting here now and having things peaceful and QUIET It doesn't sound like a bad investment. lol Actually, in the past few days she has been really quiet, watching movies, trying to get better. I am dying here at home, not being able to leave much, only to go to the salon.

I can't wait til she kicks this cold. We are going to the zoo, chuck e cheese, whatever.

I have blogged more in the past few days than ever. lol

**After giving her 1/2 a dose of medicine I feel so guilty now becuase I looked up the brand online, and they've been recalled SO many times! I am sick to my stomach now with worry. Emma has never been sick, and I haven't ever had to give her anything before for the flu. This is the last time I give her anything, becuase now I am so worried that she will get awful symptoms, or something worse. :(

Never again will I ever give her cough syrup!!

Things I want in a home

Here is a list of things I want in my home.
I really hope that my first house is my last house. I would love to find something old, and totally restore it to my liking, and live there the rest of my life!

I want:

An Older Home
I want an antebellum house. Size doesn't necessarily matter- it doesn't have to be HUGE, but of course Id like a big enough home to have children, and grow into!

A Porch
It doesn't have to wrap around, but I want it to be like another living space. I don't mind if its an inclosed screen porch, just as long as there is enough space for seating, and a swing!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I think this is a beautiful porch!

Also, A beautiful screen door
I want beautiful Dark Wood Floors.

And I want one room at least (a bathroom, or hallway) to be painted checkered board.

Country Living 500 Quick & Easy Decorating Projects & Ideas

Country Living 500 Quick & Easy Decorating Projects & Ideas

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is an AWESOME book! Check it out at your library!! It has sooo many cool ideas.

I already use many of them! I have already previously posted about jars being used for decor, if you haven't seen it, please type in Jars in the search on the header of this blog.

This book has all types of styles... ideas for entry ways, dining rooms, bedrooms, home offices, kitchens, etc.

So if you are ever in a slump, and can't figure out what you want to do to a specific room- this book is definitely for you!


I haven't lost any weight. In fact, I have gained 4 lbs. I am seriously so upset. I am going on a walk with Emma tonight, and then afterward, WORKING OUT!

I am getting into this hardcore again. The past week or so I have been persuaded to eating things I KNOW I shouldn't be eating. Definitely got my slap on the wrist this morning on the scale.

Me and Thomas

Here is a pic of me and Tom this weekend

I look hideous. But I was drinking, so that was my excuse. lol

They call me Mellow Yellowww

I love looking at home decor stuff. Once I get a house again I have everything mapped out. I know exactly what I want. lol

Today I came across yellow. I haven't previously thought about yellow before.. but It does look very nice!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Here is the first picture that gave me some inspiration.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I would definitely have to live somewhere warm to pull this off though. I can't imagine waking up to a yellow room, only to look out the window and see snow.

I am really surprised that I like this style becuase it looks very contemporary to my taste- but then again I used to LOVE contemporary. I don't like furniture in this pic, I like the bedding, and the lamp, and that beautiful yellow backdrop.

I wouldn't go more drastic than that though. I think yellows are hard to pull off, you have to have a soft shade, otherwise it will look like mustard. lol

I think always having a gold base can help prevent that though.

What I am giving up for lent!

I think I am going to give up Alcohol. I will only drink it when I am at church.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So, no more drinking otherwise for me! I sure will miss my Dirty Martinis!

Its only til Easter though! I think I'll survive. lol

Never Forever.

Its a pretty good movie- Definitely not a kid movie, there is lots of sex :/
Its about a woman who has the "perfect" marriage, can't get pregnant becuase her husband has issues with his sperm.. the marriage starts getting shaky because of it. She goes to a sperm bank but they refuse her since she is married, and doesn't want to tell her husband (who is asian btw) Anyways, so while at the bank, she sees a man who is Asian, and hears that they wont let him donate becuase his visa has expired. he leaves upset, and this woman follows him.

She finds out where he works, a laundry mat, and goes home. Her husband tries committing suicide becuase of how depressed he is, so she decides to find the asian man again, and when she does, she offers him 300 dollars everytime they have sex, and 30,000 if she gets pregnant.

He accepts, and eventually she DOES get pregnant, but falls in love with her.. um, whatever you want to call him. lol

Its pretty interesting.

Ok, Ive posted a ton today...

Sorry! lol
