Instagram Fun!

Its always exciting when you figure out a new trick with your smart phone. I'm always "behind" on the latest tech. I figured out that one- my phone takes awesome pics of an already printed picture and second- you can take already taken photos and play with them in Instagram! Now I want to pull out my wedding photos and see how I can edit them. Maybe I'll actually get my scrapbook done haha!

Also on the happy side, the countdown is ON!! :)

30 sucks...

I have several friends turning 30 this year. I already made one bouquet but alas I had to mail it so I couldn't do anything this fancy. This is for another friend. Another take on the 30 sucks gag gift. I took a cheap plastic margarita glass and spray the top. Then using paper plates I "salted" the glass using Elmer's glue and white glitter. Then stamped out an orange stamp in lime green, cut in half for the "lime". I filled the glass with green sand trying for a frozen margarita look. Add the suckers and sign. A bow to complete the project and now I have a "sucky" margarita!!

The great hunt!

It's always a joy to come across your favorite pop when you live out of state!! I even found a new flavor of Faygo that I have never tried before. Ohhh Candy Apple, soo good. The comforts of home!! It's now Brian and I's favorite hobby. Jump on the bike and gas station hop looking for Faygo!!

Yes party of three

I know it's been months since I blogged. So I failed. My short term goals! Going to the gym?? FAIL! Paying off debts, working on it. House... Half clean. Books, reading more than one at the same time. Mood...fuck you.

Today is my birthday and I can bitch if I want to :P

I have issues. Brian has been gone over a month now. This one has been harder than the others. No communication. I feel more alone right now than ive ever been before. Regardless of the support I do have and the friends here I have. I feel lacking in many things but mostly within myself.

One of the hardest things I've done is realize its time to ask for help. Now if said help will improves the slump I'm in ......we'll see.

Cleaning house is never ending... They are coming...they are coming.

Started Riley on meds. But I think I need them more than him. :)

Biggest annoyance today. Went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. I tell the host party of three. Waitress takes us to table. "Just the three of you?"
Yes yes just us, cause why would I say party of three if isnt just us three!!! What!? Youve never seen a mom take her kids out with no dad?!? Is there a memo i didn't get??! Thanks for reminding me we're missing a member of our family. Bitch....

Lastest read: Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane. It's dark, paranormal, futuristic, sex and Violence!!! I LOVE this series!!!!! Couldn't stop reading. Read on 4 books in two days. If you like Ilona Andrews series you will like this one.

Here is also a pic of the mothers day cards I made for the moms in my life.

I'm out of beer....

I have been suffering a Riley tantrum at least once everyday for over a week. I've already decided to go ahead and start medicating him for ADHD. But if this behavior keeps up, I'll be the one who needs to be medicated! Cause drinking a beer..or two then going to bed isn't cutting it plus I'm out and keep forgetting to buy more LOL. My husband should be home by the end of the week but to be honest it's not going to help with Riley's behavior. If anything it'll get worse because my husband doesn't like to fight with Riley and gives in to his demands. So then I'm fighting them both and getting no headway. At least I'll get some girl time in when Brian gets home. Hope the weather gets warmer so I can get back on my pouch and chill. Yes I am a glorified porch monkey. :)

I've stocked up in a bunch of books but now the urge to read is fading...time to craft! And by craft i mean im going to make some Valentines Day cards this weekend. Something I can get the kids involved in for at least a short time. Maybe I'll make some heart chocolates too.

I've been accused of having Mr. Darcy syndrome. Meaning I have no social skills with new people and have a hard time finding things to say. I don't know how to act. Im not shy by all means but I just don't do well with people I don't know and importantly trust. So I put a post on a FB Fort Bragg Wife page inviting people over to make valentines. See this is me trying to reach out and make friends. Now if I can follow thru and keep them is the real goal. I try so it's something.

Work out goals have been a fail...maybe when things calm down with Riley.

New goals this week-
Work out once this week???
File taxes
Clean garage
Organized closests
Remember to go to DeStress class on Friday
Prepare for making Valentines
Pray for more patience ..I have more than some but I'm reaching my limit.....

Glitter FAIL

I admit it....I'm totally addicted to More so than Facebook! I pin everything that catches my eye, all great ideas, decor stuff and most importantly DIY crafts! One of the first things I pinned was a DIY ecofriendly glitter. The directions call for 1/4 cup salt, 1/2 teaspoon food coloring, mix and spread onto foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for ten minutes.

My results was what looks like colored sand. So I tried baking for another 10 minutes. No change. So I thought maybe it has to cool. No change. Then I tried using sea salt which is alittle thicker and bigger in size. It looks better but no shinny glitter! So either this is a complete fail or the picture used with this recipe is an extreme case of false advertisement.
