Not-Me Monday

I have not done a Not-Me Monday is forever! I'm SLACKING! Hopefully I remember even how to do one!
It was NOT me that finally took time to put away my summer shoes and seen that it did NOT take two FULL boxes! That's sad.
It was NOT me that loved doing absolutely nothing for almost an entire week because of surgery. Who would want to do just nothing? That's just being lazy.
It was NOT me that loved having my mom at my house for a week, just to spend time with her, but secretly loving that she was cleaning my entire house for me. :)
And it is NOT me that had the best Christmas ever! Hope you all did too :)
Head on over to MckMama's blog to check out her Not Me Monday!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has had an AWESOME Christmas! I know I sure have! Apparently i've been a good girl this year because i've gotten more than expected! I have laid around (literally) in my pajamas all day! I just now put on clothes at 6 o'clock at night. We cooked and opened presents at my house. We had a redneck dinner! We had fried chicken, fried duck, peas, green beans, fried potatoes, cornbread, and corn casserole! and pies! And I loved every bit of it! I hate that I haven't posted in almost a week. I've been at home all week with no internet. It's been such a nice vacation...minus the surgery. I miss all my blog friends. I try to keep up through my phone, but I cannot post nor can I comment on anyones posts. Sorry. I'll be back to work on Monday, so i'll be posting a lot more. I just wanted to drop in and say Merry Christmas to you. Ill leave with a few surgery pictures. Their not very pretty.

When I just woke up from surgery. I was very high happy. I had tons
of blankets on me. They were even warmed! It was so cold in there!

My knee right after surgery. I had a drain put in because a blood vessel

The concotion me and my mom made up so I could FINALLY take a shower
after 3 days without one. It consists of seran wrap and a walmart bag.

My incisions after I took off my ace wrap. With the "yes" the guy
that prepped my knee wrote on there. I still have it on there too.
I guess the smart little guy used permanent marker. My knee is so
swollen you cannot even see my knee cap.

My goody bag that my work sent me! It had six pack of coke, and TONS
of candy! I've gained 10 lbs i'm sure! Sorry Keely and Mama M!

My new frappe machine Lance bought me for Christmas! It's so awesome!
You can make pretty much anything with this. It came with a recipe book.
Taste just like Starbucks!

Post Surgery

Hey everyone,

Sorry I have not blogged, but unfortuntely I have no internet at my house still. The surgery went GREAT friday. Thank you to everyone who prayed for me. When I got in the office, they took me back to get prepped. My nurse was extremely sweet and got the IV in on the first try! yay! My surgeon came in and PRAYED over me! How awesome was that! I all the sudden just felt a sense of peace and safety. He prayed such an awesome prayer. Then they let my mom and dad come back and sit with me til I had to go into surgery. The nurse anathesists came back and gave me some "i dont care medicine" which in fact, made me not care. lol. He wheeled me on back to the O.R., gave me a warm blanket and put me to sleep. Next thing I knew, I was awake and mom was coming to my side! I was EXTREMELY thirsty and I told my mom that I was "parshed" haha. So the nurse gave me some sprite. I also remember asking my mom that I wanted to know the "street name" for that medicine they gave me. lol! The rest of the family was able to come back into recovery for an hour. Then they got me dressed, and off I went! Lance drove me home, which I slept the entire way. He got me in the house (he was great) and onto the couch. I started waking up and needed some pain medicine, so i took an oxycotton they gave me and fell BACK asleep for an hour and a half. I finally was able to eat some chicken noodle soup. I actually ate a can and a half! I was so hungry! My mom has been so great! she has waited on me hand and foot, has cleaned my entire house, has cooked, and put ice on my knee whenever i need it. We have wrapped tons of presents, watched tons of movies, and grubbed on goodies! haha. My work sent me a goody bag with candy galore! I was really sore yesterday, I pretty much laid on the couch with an ice pack. Lance's stepmom is an RN so she came to check on me and pulled the drain from my knee. The surgeon said they usually dont have drains for knee patients but a blood vessel ruptured so they had to put one in. Today was a better day! I have walked around some but still kept ice on. I was hoping to get pictures up, but my cell phone is not letting me upload to facebook for some reason? I hope to be able to post again soon!! I can check comments, so feel free to leave all the comments you want! See ya!

Hot and Healthy Thru The Holidays

Wow, it's already week 7. That's crazy! Head to Mama M's and Keely's blog and check to see how their week 7 went!'s it goin'? We are down to our last three weeks of Hot and Healthy...can you see a difference?
I can't see much of a difference in my body, but I love knowing that I have not had a coke in over 5 weeks! I also have not had a sweet tea in over 5 weeks! I drink unsweetened tea with splenda, and also sugarfree crystal light. It's nice to know that I have accomplished just this! It may seems little to other people, but this is huge to me!! I have never been this long without a Coke in over 3 years!

How are you doin' with your cardio...did you get your four hours in? (Oh, and Keely's being easy on us...we're just gonna leave the cardio goal at four hours!)
Sorry Keely, I quit working out until I have my surgery friday. After the surgery, i'll start physical therapy, then i'll start back working out!

Have you been able to incorporate more fruits and veggies in your diet? How about water?
I love fruits and veggies any way, so just telling me to eat more, is fine to me! I eat veggie's almost every night. And i've also been eating an apple a day! I have been drinking more water, just not 8 glasses a day.

I hope everyone had a great week 7!!!

The good ole' days..

Do you ever wish you could go back in time to jr. high or highschool so you could just be careless and have fun again? I was thinking about that tonight when I was doing Lance's little sisters hair and one of her friend's hair for their Christmas Dance. They are both in the 7th grade. We had so much fun just curling their hair, putting their makeup on, getting their dresses on, making sure everything was just perfect! Man, those were the good ole' days. I really didnt like jr. high because of all the back stabbing, rumor spreading, evil girls there were. But boy did I love highschool. I had hardly any responsibilities, got to sleep in on the weekends, barely studied, and was soooo boy crazy! I love my life right now and would not change it for the world, but it would be nice to go back and have hardly any responsibilities.

My bestfriend Whitney and I have so many memories that everytime we get together, we always go back and talk about all the fun times we had together. The other weekend, we decided to go sit in her old room and talk about memories for about 3 hours. Do you and your best friend ever do that?

We talked about everything from the good and bad times we had. It was such a fun time! This is my last weekend to be limp-free for a while. Next week after my finals, I'll be having surgery on my knee. I was not concered at all until I started thinking about getting put to sleep, and it's kind of creeping me out. I've never had to get put to sleep before so i'm not sure what to expect. Then on top of that, I had a dream the other night that i DIED from my surgery! Wow, exactly what I need huh! I know that it's just an arthroscopy surgery, and i'm even an OUTPATIENT, it's just that my nerves are getting to me. I'm not even worried about the pain ill have to go through because I have a great high pain tolerance, it's just the getting put to sleep thing. I know my nerves will settle once I talk to the surgeon and he explains everything that he's going to do.

I'll leave with some pictures of the girls and their hair! I wish I could have gotten better shots at their dresses, they were ADORABLE! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

The back of hannah's hair. she has the most beautiful color red. This picture
doesn't do justice on the hair, it was so cute!

This was the back of Kim's. This picture really doesn't do justice.
Her hair was so thin, it was so hard to work with, but turned out great!

Kim and Hannah!

Hot and Healthy Thru The Holidays

I didn't participate last week because I was hardly on my blog. I was just so busy. So am I this week, and the next. I have finals next week and i'm done with school for a month! Can I get a WHAT WHAT! Ahem..anyways.. I've been doing OKAY on eating healthy. Lance has even joined in with me, so we're both dieting and exercising. Well i'm not exercising, i'm holding out until my knee surgery. It's really painful when I exercise and i'm focused on getting my knee better. So after surgery and physical therapy, i'll be starting The Shred again, walking on our treadmille and walking gliding on the gazelle. Lance has already started walking on the treadmill. If he keeps this up, he'll lose 20 pounds in 2 month. Men just make me sick! It's so easy for them to lose weight! I have had no fast food, we've been eating at home, and i've been munching on fruit! Yay for me! I hope you all have been doing great too! Go check out Mama M and Keely and see their progress!!!

I've got a survey post coming up tomorrow. It's random questions I found and decided to answer them. So don't forget to stop by tomorrow!

Five Question Friday & Quick Post

I feel like i've been neglecting my blog, but this week has been CRAZY! i've been so busy at work, and decorating, and these are the last two weeks of school so finals are coming up! I found out I will be having surgery on my knee on December 18th. So I will be down a few days, but it's nice that I wont miss school since i'll be out. I've got like 10 minutes to finish this post up, so i'm gonna do Mama M's Five Question Friday!

1. Favorite gift you are GIVING this year?

I can't say it on here because my family reads this, but I really can't think of anything special. It's going to be a tight Christmas this year. But I think i'm going to make everyone cinnamon candy for everyone and put it in jars.

2. How many parties are you attending between now and Christmas?
I dont think any? lol. Maybe our sunday school class is going to have one, but that's it!

3. What is your favorite Christmas song?
I don't have a favorite, love alot of Christmas songs!!!

4. Who was your favorite elementary school teacher and why?
Mrs. West. She was awesome!! I fell off a bench at recess one day, and landed on my knee and couldn't walk, and she came down, picked me up, and carried me all the way up a hill and into the school's office. She was like 7 months pregnant. She was a great teacher! I also LOVED mrs. funderburg to!

5. If you had a choice to live in any other period of time (other than now) what era would you choose and why?
I would love to live in the era when adam and eve was born. First, because I could slap Eve for doing the stupid things she did, because now child birth sucks because of her. And I would love to learn how to survive by killing animals with hand made knives and get to see wooly mammoths! haha!

P.S. I'm headed to Little Rock for my town's State Championship! Yep, that's right! Monticello is going to State for the first time in 15 years!!!!! whoooo!!! I'm so excited! It's supposed to be 20 degrees and snowing, but i'm packing on layers so I can cheer for The Billies (it's a goat)!!!!! I hope we win!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!
