Break Time!

I'm going to take a little 2 day break from blogging.
The combination of not feeling well and a 9 week old puppy with a crazy sleep schedule has left me with a little writers block.

So I'll just leave you with a cute picture of Linus yawning...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Rooted Celebration

For those of you who are new to my blog, The Boy and I just finished up our 11 week bible study, serve, and prayer experience called Rooted.

I was so nervous going into this because we've always been the couple that sits in the very back of the church as to avoid conversations with others.

I never imagined how this experience and the amazing people in our
group of married couples would change my life.

I actually prayed in front of these people guys!

Not only did I grow in my relationship with the Lord, but I gained so many new and amazing friends.

We all loved each other so much that we decided to continue on together in our own Life Group!

Tuesday was our celebration and baptisms.

It was such a great night!

Link Up: 7 Questions!

First off, my awkward picture. Don't know which one is me? Just scan for
the most awkward picture taker ever.
(Click on the picture to make it bigger)

Here's a close up:

Seriously!? What's wrong with me!? At what point does the whole, "It's just my face" thing stop working?

1. What is your favorite color to wear?

I tend to wear a lot of black and brown and neutral colors. But I'm gonna go with
black because it's slimming..ha.

2. You are given the choice between visiting every country and landing on the moon. Which would you choose?

Visit every country! The moon doesn't have any nice hotels.

3. What's your favorite animal and why?

My Linus is my favorite animal!
I don't think I need to say why...the picture speaks for itself

4. You are forced to do one of the following, which would you choose? Sky Dive, Scuba Dive, or this:

I'm a big old chicken but if I had to choose one it would be the swing!

5.You are given the chance to go back in time. Which era would you choose?

The late 50's early 60's. I love the fashion! Women were just so classy then!

6. If you had the power to remove one thing (ie. flies, mosquito's, junk food) what would it be?

MICE! Ugh...Don't even get me started!

7. What is the one thing you've learned on Pinterest that you thought, "Genius!"?

You send a drawing from your child to this shop and they turn it into a doll!
So cute!!!

Craze Tuesday: Martha Stewart Pet Supplies

Is there anything Martha doesn't make!?
I was so excited to see her line at Petsmart so these were the things we bought.

Linus' Stuff

Today we went to visit Grandma and Grandpa and to get Linus' toenails clipped because they were lethal weapons!

I wasn't quite sure how to transport such a crazy puppy so I decided to make my own car seat.

He was fine as long as he had his Martha Stewart Giraffe to cuddle :)

Mantra Monday: Insurance

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was very appropriate.

Not to say I married Tim for health insurance, but it was kind of funny
how it worked out. As soon as I put my two weeks notice in last year I started having all of my stomach issues. The week after my health insurance expired I got really really sick. This lead to a trip to the county hospital that is going to cost me an arm and a leg and several Urgent Care facilities just trying to figure out what was going on.

I'm sure you all know how pricey things are without insurance.

I'm so blessed to have a husband with an amazing job that has great health benefits. As soon as we were married I started seeing specialists to figure out what was going on.

Moral of the story: Health Insurance is awesome.

We're Parents!!!

Today we rescued this adorable little guy and we are already so in love!

We sent in our application earlier this week and when we got to Pets mart
to pick him up there was a kid holding him and his parents were telling the lady that he was the one they wanted! I almost died! The lady told the family that we had submitted our application first and that we had emailed her pictures of our yard so he was ours and the man flipped out! He was being so rude to her and saying it wasn't fair so she took us aside and told us that he was ours and we could sit down and start filling out the paperwork.

Thank goodness that jerk didn't get our baby!

I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of Linus posts from now on.

Hanging My Head In Shame

I'm about to admit something that may or may not change your opinions of me.

I love trash t.v.


Real Housewives of O.C.

These women are just so ridiculous! It's awesome entertainment.
I mean, look at this:

Next we have Teen Mom...
I guess if MTV isn't going to feature music, I'll take immature girls
getting pregnant with douche bag boys.

They keep it classy...

And how can you not smile when you see Farrah's ugly cry face!?

And my personal favorite:
This next show is kind of new. So new that I don't Tivo it *pat on the back*

I like it because of things like this:

Last but not least, Jersey Shore...Don't judge me!

Entertainment for all ages!

Pauly and Vinny crack me up

Sam is tied with Farrah's ugly cry face.

Now my secret is out there!
Let's see how many followers I lose :)

Makeup Bag Sneak Peek

I kind of blossomed into a real girl a little late. I didn't start wearing makeup till after high school so I never really had much practice.

What that means is:
1. I buy super cheap makeup
2. I don't really know how to apply it
3. My morning routine is pretty quick
4. I have some MAC products and they intimidate me!


Any Makeup pros out there with some tips?

Link Up: 7 Questions!

Today I'm Linking Up with Gentri Lee for a little segment she calls:

My Funny Photo:
This was taken during our first dance as husband and wife and probably our last dance ever (We're too awkward for dancing). This was right near the end where he decided he was going to try and dip me. I don't think either of our faces scream confidence, but I love it!

1. You're given the choice between a life with
love and trials or loneliness and ease. Pick one.

Life with Love and Trials, no question. Isn't that what marriage is all about?

2. Would you rather live in Narnia, Hogwarts, Middle Earth, or Neverland?

I'd have to say Neverland because I've never read anything by J.R.R Tolkein, never read or seen any of the Harry Potter movies, and I've only read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
(Please don't hate me!)

3. Think of your dream home... what style is it?

I can't decide between a classic Bungalow near the beach or a swanky Loft in LA or NY

4. What's currently your favorite song or album?

I don't really have a current favorite but recently I've been listening to The Bird and The Bee on Pandora.

5. Who was the last person you hugged?

The Boy. He gives the best hugs!

6. You have a ticket in your hand, where is it going to take you?

Oh man, tough question! I've always wanted to go to London since I'm
a huge Morrissey fan, but Greece or Italy sound nice too!

7. Who is one blogger you KNOW you'd be BFF's with in real life?

I feel like since I've started blogging I've found quite a few girls that I have a lot in common with but I just stalked their blogs quietly and never had the opportunity to chat with them.

I feel like Kristen from Confessions of a Graphic Design Student would be an awesome BFF. She's sweet, talented, and super cute. From her comments I just get that she is such a caring person and friend.

Be sure to link up!

P.S. Why my fonts are all funky, I have no clue!?

The " I Never Really Told You Cupcakerie"

Yes, I'm fully aware that I've jumped on the cupcake train a little late.

Heck, the cake pop craze is almost on it's way out and now it's all about
macaroons! Right?

Well I decided to make these sweet cupcakes for our bible study group last night.

Milkshake Cupcakes

I was really excited to use my cupcake courier from Crate and Barrel

The hardest part you ask? Mixing the butter for 6 minutes straight!
I should have used the stand up mixer but I was on a mission.

I think I finally found the perfect Butter cream Frosting!
