Hi Lovelies! 

It's Sunday and that means it's time for Sunday Social with Neely!  Here are this week's questions: 


1. What is your favorite movie of all time?

This is a hard question because there are so many movies that I like. If I had to choose just one movie that is my all time favorite it would have to be Grease. I just love everything about this movie from the plot, to the music, to the clothes. It's just fun movie. 

 2. What is your favorite movie quote?

One of my favorite quotes is from one of my favorite 80s movies, The Breakfast Club.

3. What is the best movie to watch for a girl's night in?

Again, it's hard to pick just one movie, so I'm going to list my top three movies for a girl's night in-- (in particular order)

4. What is the best break up movie?

Hands down- The Break Up


5. Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life?

I just don't know. I guess if I had to name one person I would have to say maybe Melissa McCarthy. 

6. Which star's closet would you want to raid?

Reese Witherspoon. I would love to raid her closet!

Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

Weekend Shenanigans

Hi Lovelies! 

The weekend went by so fast and I wish it could have lasted longer. Even though we did not do much, we did relax. Here's what we did.


We spent the morning outside playing and doing some yard work. When Husby and A went in I decided to mow the back yard. When I finished the back yard, we decided to take A into town. She wanted to go to Kmart and we obliged. We ended up having a blast playing with all of the toys. A had so much fun and she even came back with her very first Thomas the train, train set. 


We decided to spend the day at home playing outside with A and watching movies in the afternoon. It was a low key day but also very relaxing.


We went to church, came home and spend the day relaxing and watching movies (again) and reading books with A. It was a pretty low key day as well. We just relaxed and enjoyed having family time. 

So, how did you spend your weekend?

Sunday Social

Hi Lovelies! It's been a busy weekend! I'm linking up for Sunday Social. Here are this week's questions:


1. What is your favorite store to shop at?

I don't shop much, but when I do I do most of it at Target.
2. If you could afford anything and everything, which designer brand would you covet?

I'm not very familiar with designers but I would have to say maybe Chanel. 

3. Must have closet staple?

Yoga pants and leggings.

4. Favorite kind of shoes?

Since I only own three pairs of shoes (hangs head in shame) I really don't have a favorite shoe ( this does need to change).
5. Best clothing deal you’ve ever gotten? (sale or amazing find)

I did find a pair of Reebok shoes for a steal the last time I bought shoes.  I think I might have spent $20 on them.

6. Style you’d love to try?

Honestly? Any style!!

Movie Screening in the Sooner State

Hi Lovelies!

It's the weekend! Happy Saturday! 

I found out a few hours ago that Johnny Depp was in my hometown!

And..... he was screening his new movie "The Lone Ranger" and I freaking missed it!!!

This is the second time he has been there I have missed both times. I can't believe it! One of these days Ladies.... one of these days. 

Johnny Depp is one of favorite actors and I love all of his movies. I have has a secret crush on him ever since I saw him in A Nightmare on Elm Street and 21 Jump Street. He is such an amazing actor and his characters are just so unique although some of them are a bit strange. But I think that's what makes him such a great actor. 

Has anyone seen the trailer for "The Lone Ranger" ? Are you going to see the movie?

Have a great weekend Lovelies!

The Name Game

Names are a tricky thing. Most new parents fiercely guard their baby's name until he or she is born. My husband and I did this with our daughter's name. We had foolishly told some friends and family that name we had originally chosen for her, Mercedes Taylor or Ruby Diane, but our friends and family told us that they did not like the names we had chosen for our baby girl. We had chosen Ruby Diane, because she would have been named after her great grandmother and her grandmother. Mercedes Taylor was name that both of us liked. Taylor is my husband's middle name. It wasn't until the 20 week ultrasound that we finally decided on a name. When we saw her profile, Paul mentioned that she had my mouth and then said "we could name her after you- Angelina". She also has Paul's middle name which is Taylor. So, she is actually named after both of us. Pretty cool story, huh? If you like this one, I think you'll like the story of how my parents came up with my name.

When  I was born, my dad wanted to name me "Winifred Josephine" (after his mom) and my mom wanted to name me "Rosa Lena" (after her mom). Neither one liked the names, so my dad suggested that they combine the two first names and make that my middle name, Rosa Winifred. I'm not sure where my first name came from, I think one on my aunts suggested it. My mom told my dad that if he could fit the entire name on the little line on the birth certificate then that would be my name. Well, he was able to even though it was written in tiny writing. So, yeah, I'm a girl who has two middle names. 

How did you get your name?

Have a great evening!!

Good morning Lovelies! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that all the dads had a great Father's Day. We have had such a relaxing weekend with some good food and a couple of movies. 

The Weather..... At least it's cooler this week. I hope we see some rain soon.

Right now.... I'm watching "Sweet Dreams" (Pasty Cline movies starring Jessica Lange), watching my hubby playing Gears of War, and writing this post.

On my TV......I'm watching movies and TV shows on Amazon Prime and Netflix.

On the menu this week....I'm still trying to figure out the menu for this week.

Monday- chicken and pasta
Tuesday- BBQ pork chops, mashed potatoes, veggies
Friday- Fish and pasta and veggies
Sunday- Beans and chilli

On my to do list.....homework, laundry, vacuum, and more homework.

Happy Father's Day!

To the man who literally swept me off my first from the first time he looked at me.

To the man who spent every single day of college with me. Every. Single. Day.

To the man who asked me to be his wife (16 years later), then became my husband (the day after he proposed) and gave me the greatest gift of all. The gift of motherhood (the months later).

To the man who love his daughter unconditionally and who would do anything for her.

To the man who I look forward to spending the rest of my life with (the golden years), growing old with, and watching our child/children become parents one day.

To the man, the best father to our daughter, and husband to his wife.

Happy Father's Day and thank you for being you. We love you Daddy! You are the best and most awesome Daddy in the world. You are the cheese to my macaroni and the peanut butter to my jelly!

Fathers and Daughters

Hi Lovelies! 

I thought I would share some quotes and songs about fathers and their daughters. These always remind me of the relationship that my husband has with our daughter. She is a daddy's girl and she has him wrapped around her finger. 

Their relationships is very special. 

So, here are a few quotes about fathers and daughters:

Here are a couple of songs:

My Girl- The Temptations

Daddy's Little Girls - Michael Buble

Another confesh sesh

I miss naptime. I mean I really miss naptime. There have been times that Angelina does nap but only for 30 minutes and on the days that she doesn't nap she has quiet time. During quiet time we either read together or watch a movie. While she is watching her movie I usually get on the laptop and have my "quiet time". I need it for my sanity.

I hate when people use too many hashtags on facebook and twitter. Absolutely drives me nuts.

I'm addicted to Pretty Wicked Moms on Lifetime. Has anyone seen this reality show? Two of them moms are just too much!

I use a ton of paper plates. I would rather use paper plates than have to wash a sink full of dishes. 

People who write in text message confuse me. Just say what you mean, I really don't want to have to figure what you are saying. 

I really wish we had a dishwasher. I wash our dishes 3 times a day every day and I'm so over it. Hence the paper plate usage. 

So, there you have it, my confessions. What are you confessing to!

Happy Homemaker Monday

Hi Lovelies! Is it really Monday all ready? I wish the weekends could last just a little bit longer. Don't you?  It's been awhile since I have linked up with Sandra for Happy Homemaker Monday, so that I would link up today!

The weather.......One word.......Hot! Summer is finally here and we are in the first week of triple digits. I hate to say it, but I miss the rain!

Right now I am.....sitting at the table in the living room, watching re-uns of "Full House" when I should be working on the two papers that I have due on Wednesday. 

Thinking.....that we need to get to work on our business. I already have the business cards made, I just need to send them off to the printers, and then we need to start handing the out. We also need to get a phone number. I'm so ready to start this!!

On my reading pile........other then my textbook, I'm reading another Mary Higgins Clark book.

On my reality TV shows (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Pretty Wicked Moms).

What I found on the net......I haven't really been looking for anything this week.

On the menu....not really sure yet, but here a few things that I have been thinking about

Monday- sandwiches, carrot sticks, and chips
Tuesday- Crock pot beef stew
Wednesday- Hamburgers
Sunday- Pulled beef sandwiches, potato salad

On my to do list.......

make dentist appointment for Angelina
make hair appointments for all of us
laundry (as usual)
work on papers and submit my Wednesday

In the craft basket......I still have a few blankets to make, a shopping cart cover to make, and I'm going to  Angelina some elastic hair bands.

Looking forward to this week......our first road trip of the summer!!! Can't wait!!!

Looking around the house.......the kitchen needs to be cleaned, the floors needs to be vacuumed, and the clothes need to be folded and put away.

From the camera......

On my prayer husband and I as we embark on our new business venture.

Have a great week Lovelies!!

Reality Bites

Hi Lovelies!

You know that I love "Keeping up with Kardashians". It is one of my guilty pleasures. But there are some things about the show that really ruffle my tail feathers. They tend to get upset with the paparazzi for following them where ever they go. I really think that this is their fault for living such a public life. Here is an example of what I am talking about:

Yesterday, Kim Kardashian blamed the paparazzi for putting both her and the life of her unborn baby in danger in several twitter and other social media posts. However, is it fair fair for the reality star to be upset with paparazzi when she leads such a public life?

She tweeted on Thursday:  " I wouldn't let the paps get a pic of me today and they threatened my life and said if I continue to block shots they will make my world dangerous  to live in! How dare they threaten my life and my unborn child! This has gotten out of control!" She claimed that photographers blocked her way so that she couldn't drive, which scared her. 

As a fellow mom, I feel her safety should in fact come first. The paparazzi can be aggressive to the point of hurting someone just to get the "money shot".  However, it is hard for me to feel sorry for her when she obviously loves the spotlight. I feel that if she did not want photos taken of her bump then she should stay of of the limelight (Shania Twain and Pamela Anderson did it) and just enjoy the last few of her pregnancy and to just be an average mom

Stress is bad for pregnancy and she has has her share of it. I would encourage her to relax and let her baby daddy take care of her, and to not let the paparazzi get the best of her. 

Do you think she should be mad at the paparazzi for doing this to her?

Confess Sessh

Hi Lovelies! 

Since I haven't blogged in a couple of days due to playing catch up in my class, I thought I would give my lovely readers a confession post. Enjoy!!!

I confess that I watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians. I love the show and I just can't help myself.

I confess that I'm still afraid of the closet monster, which means the closets doors in the bedrooms have to be closed or I can't sleep.

I confess that I'm an 80s girl and I'm proud of it.

I confess that one of my pet peeve's is rude people. It doesn't take that much to hold open a door for someone does it? And to say thank you.

I confess that I automatic flushing toliets used to freak me out. Now, it just irks me when there aren't any automatic flushing toilets in the restrooms.

I confess that I love peanut butter and chocolate and I want to try the chocolate peanut butter by Jif. I looks yummy!!!

I confess that I have yet to watch the Bachelor or the Bachelorette shows. They just don't appeal to me at all.

So, what are you confessing today?

Angels in blue scrubs

While Angelina was in the hospital last week, we had some awesome nurses tending to her. They were so patient and really helped me out quite a bit with her. Whenever Paul or I would push the call button, one of the nurses were in our room within seconds. One of the nurses would always bring Angelina a Popsicle and encourage her to eat it (which she did a couple of times) and one of them even brought her some ice chips when she asked for them. 

They even brought her this car to play with, which she loved. 

 Whenever we were out in the hallway with it she would say "I hope the nurses like my car" or " I just have to show them my car".  She charmed every single one them!!!

So here is to the nurses. Thank you so much for all that you do. You are appreciated!!! You truly are Angels in blue scrubs.

Out for the count

Hi Lovelies! 

All three of us are sick. Well, actually Angelina and Paul are just now getting over it. I just came down with it this morning. So, I apologize in advance if I don't post for the next few days. I will try to schedule some posts tomorrow.

Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow!!!

Good night Lovelies!!
