Trip to KC

I went on my first away trip for work this past weekend to the office for the quarterly meeting and to meet/train the new guy.
Jason and the boys drove me to Austin Sunday morning to the airport. My flight went into Atlanta and it was a rough flight, especially since I did not take any Dramamine.
Over Atlanta

From there I flew into KC. I grabbed some Dramamine between flights and while it was still a little rough with turbulence, I didn't have the added air sickness to endure. Much better. Will never fly without it again.
Once I landed, I got my rental car and met mom, dad, Amelia, Josh and Brandy at Coach's for dinner. The windows were all painted up with Royals stuffs.
Love me some Hosmer!

Went straight to the hotel after dinner and crashed. 

Woke up bright and early the next morning for our quarterly meeting. Felt good to get dressed up for work! Instead of my usual yoga pants and tank I sport these days. 
Made sure to sport some royal blue ;)

After a long, crazy day in the office. I had dinner plans with Lindsey. 
Mmmm Sangria!

After dinner we noticed a little sweet shop and stopped in. Had too much giggly girl fun. 

I got a little treat for my boys (not the Gooey Rod) and headed back to the hotel to chat and chill.
Chocolate covered marshmallows for the boys. 

A phone call from Pam (more in another post) put a damper on the rest of the evening but we had a great visit and I'm so glad I got to spend some time with her.
Up and at 'em for Day 2. Sporting my royal blue wedges for game 1 of the World Series. And another super busy and full day was spent at the office. I stayed and worked a little late any then ordered some Joe's BBQ to eat while I watched the big game.
My favorite!!

I chilled in the room, stuffed my face and watched the game in my PJs. All 14 innings! It was a late night but I stuck with them till the end and they WON!

The next morning was travel home day. Woke up sleepy but happy. 

Packed up all 60-some odd ounces of breast milk from the 3 days away from the booby monster. 

And got ready to go home!
Feels weird to be leaving Kansas to go home to Texas but home truly is where the heart is. And all 4 pieces of my heart are there waiting!
Texas! Home Sweet Home!

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 …

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 …

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.…
