Our New Little Addition to the Family

J and I would like to announce that we are going to be welcoming a new little baby into our home.

What?! ...NO!! I am NOT pregnant... You CRAZY??? :o)

This is whom I am referring to.

Isn't she ADORABLE!!!! *SQUEEEEL* After wanting one for MANY, MANY years, I am finally getting my PUG! I saw her on a friend's FB page and J said I could have her if I wanted her. S.P.O.I.L.E.D. Yep, I sure am. ;)

We are going to pick her up a week from Saturday and I couldn't be more excited!!! I'm trying to decide on a name. Actually, I'm driving poor J insane with the name discussion - you would think we were picking out names for one of our own children. Here are some of my favorites:

*Gemma (we are big Sons of Anarchy fans, this is also J's favorite)
*Darla (Little Rascals)
*Bella (Although WAY over done)
*Buttercup (Princess Bride)
*Peaches (Inside Joke from VDay weekend)
*Sushi (We LOVE our SUSHI)
*Lulu (nickname from HS)
*Ping Pong (LOL - j/k although this WAS a suggestion on one of the websites)
*Guinevere (and call her Gwenie)

Nothing is really super 100% jumping out at me though. I do like Gemma and it does have meaning to both of us but I'm not completely sold on it either.

"I know! Isn't she adorable?? Her name is Gemma."

See? Doesn't quite give that wow-you're-the-coolest-person-ever-for-picking-that-clever-awesome-dog-name reaction. (I'm so self-involved you know, its all in how it makes ME look, not if it fits the dog's personality??! Gaw.)

Opinions, anyone?

I'm not sure how you pronounce the first name?

I like Darla.

(I think pugs have weird bug eyes... don't hate me)

Jim - uh


Don't be hatin' the bug eyes...LOL

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …
