Day #108 - April 20, 2010 - Dessert for breakfast

So, I love kids cereal. Fruity Pebbles, Lucky Charms, Crunch Berries.... But, Cupcake Pebbles? A kids cereal that tastes like cupcakes (one of my favorite desserts) AND with multi-colored sprinkles? YES PLEASE!

Day #107 - April 19, 2010 - FINALLY!

Yesterday, I finally got the house back in order after 2 long weeks of home improvements...
We love the wood floors and the tile and it might convince me to stay longer in this house than originally planned. Next up, a new countertop and sink! We got new curtains over the weekend and we got a new fan on Sunday at Costco. The fan isn't installed yet, but we're hoping it won't be too hard. We also bought paint samples Friday afternoon and wall texture to test out. We are getting rid of the weird pink/salmon/red color in the living area and going with a straight beige and doing red in the kitchen. I love red, but I am scared about doing this major change. Does anyone have pictures or ideas about a red kitchen? Or any suggestions on a type of red that's not so bold. It's amazing how many different "reds" there are. But that's why we got samples! :) But, anyway...
The cats are adjusting better to the floors, but still don't like it as much as carpet. They will run and slide across the floor and can't get traction. They spend a lot more time up on the furniture now. Or cuddling me or their dad :)

Day #106 - April 18, 2010 - Daddy's girl

Sunday was a lazy day... And Sunday night was spent watching Mets baseball, like we spend a lot of our nights around here these days. Pixie jumped up on the TV cabinet and stood there forever just watching baseball.... She is a Daddy's girl after all!

Day #105 - April 17, 2010 - April showers...

I'm not talking about rain showers...
Saturday we spent the day at a couples shower in Beaumont given for 2 of our friends. This is how I will be spending alot of my weekends up until the end of June when the final wedding takes place. Until then, BBB will be getting a lot of my money and showers will be getting a lot of my time. It will be fun though, and hopefully one day (SOON) I will be celebrating my own shower... HINT HINT JOHN! hehe j/k

Day #104 - April 16, 2010 - New floors, day #5

John and I both took Friday off and the floor guys arrived bright and early and were done installing our wood in 4 hours! This was right after they left before we had everything back in order. The cats were not very fond of the floors at first, in fact, they still aren't. Cotton sat on top of whatever he could for a long time!

Day #103 - April 15, 2010 - A hiding spot

Thursday night, we got everything ready for the floor guys to come back and install our wood in the living room. We moved all the tables in to the kitchen and this is where Cotton sat the rest of the night....

Day #102 - April 14, 2010 - Belly rubs

I found out tonight that Pixie loves belly rubs. She has never really let me rub her belly before, but tonight, she was laying on John's legs and we were petting her and she rolled over like this for us to rub her belly! She stayed like that even after we were done, probably hoping for some more lovin! :) haha

Day #101 - April 13, 2010 - F*R*I*E*N*D*S

FRIENDS is my all time favorite TV show and I have every season on DVD. I go through phases where I will watch them all the time and I am in one of those phases now. I have been obsessed with watching them lately if I can't find anything on TV. Or, I'll put them on upstairs when I'm laying in bed before I go to sleep. Some of my favorite FRIENDS moments are....
"He's your lobster!"
Rachel seeing the prom video and finding out what Ross was going to do for her
Rachel and Ross fighting in the apt and everyone else is in the bedroom and they eat wax!
Chandler and Monica's engagement
Rachel and Ross getting drunk in Vegas and drawing faces on each other and getting married
ohhh, there are sooo many! I freakin love that show!

What are some of y'alls favorite FRIENDS moments??

Day #100 - April 12, 2010 - New floors, day #4

Monday night they came to finish the tile, and we absolutely love it. It was a very long, draining process, but it makes a huge difference in the house! We still need to mop, but they said we had to wait 2 days. They are coming back on Friday to install our wood for the living room, so we are going to wait until after that to do a deep cleaning to the whole house. We loooooove it!!

Day #99 - April 11, 2010 - New floors, day #3

The tile guys showed up bright and early Sunday morning and after a very very long day, this is what the tile looked like when they left Sunday night. This is a picture of John's bathroom. It had the same ugly pink tile that was in my bathroom. Notice there is no toilet either... We had one working bathroom all day on Sunday and until they came to finish Monday night...

Day #98 - April 10, 2010 - New floors, day #2

Saturday morning we got up early and I took this picture of my bathroom floor before the tile men were supposed to be here. We waited and waited only to find out that they weren't coming...
So, we rescheduled for Sunday...

Day #97 - April 9, 2010 - New floors, day #1

Saturday morning they were supposed to come install our tile floors, so we started getting ready for them arrive Friday night. We moved all the furniture out of the kitchen and bathrooms. These are our nasty kitchen floors before the tile... and Pixie :)

Day #96 - April 8, 2010 - Vera Bradley

I love me some Vera Bradley bags. I wish they would open a store in Houston so bad. There is one close to my mom's house in DFW and she bought me a bag when she came in town for Easter I had saw online that I liked. She got it here and it was realllly small, so she returned it for me and sent me the gift card in the mail so I could order something online. These are the 2 bags I ended up with! :)

Day #95 - April 7, 2010 - Baseball season

Monday marked Opening Day of Baseball Season. John is a die hard Mets fan. He pays extra for the baseball package on DirecTV so he can get the NY channels to watch all the games. Monday the Mets played during the day while we were at work so the first game we got to watch ended up being on Wednesday night. This is John, literally on the edge of his seat watching the games... I can kiss the next 7 months of TV goodbye on the big screen TV! I've been kicked up to the bedroom to watch my regulars like American Idol and Greys!

Day #94 - April 6, 2010 - SICK SICK SICK

Thursday before Easter, my throat started hurting... It got worse as the weekend progressed and Sunday I started getting a cough. Sunday and Monday nights I didn't sleep at all from coughing, so Tuesday I finally went to the Redi-Clinic in HEB to see the NP. She said I just caught a virus or a cold and gave me some cough medicine. This stuff was a miracle worker! I slept better than I have in a long time on Tuesday night. This stuff was an essential on my night stand to take before bed for several nights!

Day #93 - April 5, 2010 - Sleepy kitty

Pixie was passssed out!

Day #92 - April 4, 2010 - Easter

Sunday was Easter and we spent the day with John's family. Of course, I failed to pull my camera out and take a picture. The weather was beautiful though and I got to wear a new sundress and these cute shoes I bought the week before at Ross. Yup, it was "shoe week" at Ross and I came out with 3 new pairs of shoes. These were my favs. Y'all know my obsession with animal prints so of course, I had to buy them :)

Day #91 - April 3, 2010 - Swimmers

This was from our trip to Xel-Ha. We got just gotten off our tubes to swim the rest of the way in and there was a guy there taking pictures. We had so much fun snorkeling that day. I look like I'm about to float away! :)

Day #90 - April 2, 2010 - Wastin' away again...

I cheated and took a picture of a picture :) Friday I was off work for Good Friday and I stayed in my PJ's all day! (I might have done it Saturday too) hehe. So, these next 2 days are rannnndooom. I wanted to show y'all these 2 pictures that were taken of us in Cancun that we bought. This one was taken at Margaritaville. I am a lobster in this pic!! Stay tuned for the next post for the next picture :)

Day #89 - April 1, 2010 - Bad sunburns...

These 2 bottles and their contents were my best friends after we got back from Cancun. Y'all saw how bad my sunburn was in the Cancun posts... Of course, every part of my body that saw the sun was scorched and then peeled. This was the day my peeling was absolutely disgusting. I wanted to take a picture because I have never peeled this bad, but I knew y'all would appreciate if I didn't :) So, lotion and aloe vera were around me constantly being applied to my entire body!

Day #88 - March 31, 2010 - Anniversary presents

John and I have been pretty boring since we've been back from Cancun... We've gone out a few times, but I've been too lazy to even pull out my camera to take a picture. So, these next few posts are going to be very random, last minute pictures I've taken! :)

This is what John got me for our anniversary! It is gorgeous on! He got it from Blue Nile and for those of you who have never bought anything from there, you should check it out. He got me diamond stud earrings from there last year and they are beautiful and GREAT quality. I've got a few other things from there as well, and I've never been disappointed.
Thanks honey for this beautiful necklace!

Day #87 - March 30, 2010 - Online dating

Ok, I am having to do MAJOR catch up here considering I haven't updated my pictures in 3 weeks!!
So, to explain this picture... A lot of people don't know this, but John and I met on Match.com. I had been through an extremely hard break up after a 7 year relationship and after friends setting me up and meeting people in bars, a few friends had talked to me about signing up for online dating. Very hesitant, I made my profile and waited for messages. One day I received a message from this 23 year old boy telling me I had a nice smile. I didn't like the fact that he was 23 and I was 24. I decided to write him back and we traded AIM names and talked for 3 weeks on AIM. These 3 weeks we got to know each other so when we finally met it felt like we were old friends. And during this 3 weeks, he turned 24 :) haha. We finally went on our first date on March 29, 2008. The reason I am posting this picture on March 30, 2010 is because on this day 2 years ago I knew that John was special and this was going to be something good. We went to the zoo on our first date and the Houston zoo has the butterfly exhibit. The next day, I was working at the hospital and I happened to have my phone in my pocket. I felt a vibrate and it was a message from him saying something about how he must have swallowed a butterfly at the zoo because he's had them in his stomach ever since we said goodnight the day before. :D How could a girl not get a big smile out of that? And nearly every day since then we've been inseparable.

The next posts to get caught up will have very little explanation so I can get them up faster and I promise I will be better at taking pictures and posting them more often :)
