..the fireworks Explode, Lighting up my way...

We all decided to go to Blue lake Park for the 4th this year and it was really fun! The line to get in was about 15 minutes but it was better than I expected. We brought lot's of snacks but forgot the Bug repellant!! So after playing for a few hours we relocated and found a nice spot to watch the fireworks. The kids really had fun and everything went well!!Wahoo The kids were Amazed by the fireworks I don't even think they cared they didn't have their own!!

Family Reunion

So we went to see Tylers Graduation this past week and it was crazy stressfull!! I hade Dollar Rent a Car!!!! After a $115 dollar van ride and a cab ride to the army base we made it to see Tyler for the first time in over 2 months it was Awesome!!! We had a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed seeing their daddy again We are so proud of Tyler and all that he has done to secure a stable future for our family and to set a great example for us!! We also got to see my friend Alicia and her family so that was nice it was like we were never apart!! They both handled the heat and all of the delays fairly well I am proud of them. In summation I am happy we could be together as a family again but I am not Returning to Oklahoma by choice any time soon!!!

One step closer

I am the proud owner of the exact same color and brand of Lip gloss that Kim Kardashian wears!! I researched this online and suprisingly, there were lots of Forums and other resources that had people trying to find out the brand of Lipgloss Kim wears!! I would watch Keeping up with the Kardashians and always think, I wonder what lip gloss she uses? So it is Turkish Delight by NARS Obsess much?

Dance my ass off!!

So you may notice that My goal is not to be super thin! I aim to have no muffin top and no bra-lines and most importantly to be in better shape in general! My original goal was to be closer to 100 pounds than to 200 but I am thinking that as long as I look the way I want in clothing and am feeling good about shopping I will be ok!! I know I will never wear a Bikini again but I wouldn't mind the option!!

So I have Joined a Gym and I worked out 5 days last week and one day this week and I may go tonight again!! I am going to 4 or 5 classes a week including a step and Zhumba class and then I do like a half hour of resistance training I feel better already and just to keep myself on track I want to make a Online Vision board to remind me to stick with it so Here it is!!

Tyler leaves for Basic Training

Tyler Left for Basic Training Yesterday and we got to spend the night with him in the hotel the night before. We had a lot of fun and I have talked to him today already. He sounds like he is ready for what is ahead of him!! I am not a Breakdown kind of person so I am noticing that I miss him little by little with everything I do without him like eat dinner or give the kids a bath or go grocery shopping and not have to think about buying Skim Milk. I wrote him a letter last night and I am planning to write every day at night when the kids are in bed. We won't have his address for maybe a week. I will try to document this time in my life in pictures and blogs.

Makeup Delusions

OK so I have been soooo busy admiring everyone's projects on her that I haven't posted in a while but I felt the need to share a picture of a heavenly combination!!! MAC Makeup and Cupcakes!!! Woohoo!!! On a less fun note I am potty training Ethan and it is sooo confusing. There are so many different ways and methods I think I am trying a combination of all at the same time and confusing both of us!!

OK so obviousley I have a love for cupcakes and all things cupcake oriented!!! A long time ago, like 5 or 6 years ago I was at the Bumbershoot music Festival in Seattle and I kept seeing these Pink stickers that said "Legalize Frostitution" I got ahold of some and I think I still have one somewhere. So upon investigating I learned that that slogan belongs to one of the best cupcake shops in the world Cupcake Royale that is right in Seattle and surrounding locations also. I used to make yearly or more trips to Seattle and I have never been to any of these shops and I am bummed about it!! I am making it a personal goal of mine to make it to this shop within one year. I follow their blog and keep reading the RAVE reviews about their
cupcakes. Check them out!!

St.Patricks Day Festivities

I got that Festive piece of Fabric at Wal-Mart for less than one dollar!!

Caution!!! Lots of photos!!

So St.Patricks day is one of my favorite days of the year and I made it official by naming my daughter Ireland..Haha. I made Corned beef and Cabbage and bought some Irish Soda bread and Dubliner Cheese at New Seasons market. Ireland liked the Red Potatoes in the stew but Ethan would have nothing to do with it!! We went to the Grand Lodge to see the Irish dancers and enjoy the Festivities there and it was stressful but fun and next year we shall be more organized in all aspects if possible!!
