Alot of what's been going on!

Is anyone as excited as I am that today is Friday?! Maybe it's because i've had a crazy busy week at work and i'm ready for a break. Or maybe it's because my mom is coming down and my sister and bro-in-law are coming to my house and we are grilling for memorial day! Whoo! I'm so excited to be spending time with the fam! Wednesday we will be leaving for Illinois for my cousin's WEDDING! she has been playing for over a year now so it's going to be beautiful. We are going up 3 days before so we can help her get everything together and decorate :D. I'm a sucker for decorating for events, so i'm stoked! We are super close to my family in illinois so it's going to be great seeing them. We only get to see them maybe twice a year :(. I will be posting pics of the wedding when I get back! And if your wondering about the house and where the before and after pics are? Well, i've decided to wait til my bathroom and caden's rooms were done before I posted. Lance is almost finished painting caden's room, and the bathroom still has some work to do.

Also, did you know paint can rot? Yeah, me either. Until lance painted all four walls of Cadens room with rotten paint. He didnt realize it because he had a breather mask on so he couldnt smell the ROTTEN EGG smell until he took it off. He was also using a spray rig so he could tell. So then he had to go back over with another color paint. It's going to look good though. Have I also mentioned how much I love lance? He has such a kind heart. Yesterday I was pulling out of walmart and seen him at the hardwood store across the street. He was about to go in until he seen about 3 guys trying to push a car into the driveway of the hardwood store. They weren't going anywhere with it. Lance ran over there real quick and helped push it up the hill. They were super appreciative i'm sure. That made me smile :).

Have I also told you Caden learned how to ride a horse by himself? At the age of 3? Yes, he did! Lance's family is huge rodeo'ers (is that a word), and they have lots of horses (even though i'm terrified), and they gave caden a pony. A big pony at that, but it's an old pony, like 30 years old. She was very skinny so we had to fatten her up a bit. Anyways, we usually lead Caden around with the rope, but the other day, he told his Grandma Ann (Lance's step-mom) that "he wanted to ride all by himself". So she taught him! I'm not going to lie, i was scared to death! lol. We put him in a round pen and he was riding all by himself! He then got brave and wanted to walk the pony around "barrels". So, Ann also taught him how to do that, even though she knew he was going to fall off the horse. And, he did. The horse started trotting pretty fast and it scared him and he let go of the reigns and fell off. To me, it looked horrible so I took off after him. But Ann told me not to baby him or he wouldnt get back on. He cried so hard, and I felt so bad, but she made him get back on right then or he would never would get back on. It was so cute watching him ride though!
Here are some pictures and videos! **Forgive me, i'm not a good videographer! I also do not have speakers on my computer at work, so i'm not sure what all I say in these videos, you may hear me say "GOOD JOB!", alot!**

A Great Weekend

I had a great weekend! Lance's birthday was Sunday, so we decided to head to Little Rock saturday and spend some time together up there. Saturday morning we got up and got dressed and was all ready to go by 9:00 that morning. We get Caden in his car seat, and go to start the car and it wont crank. So we tried for 20 minutes and finally get it started! The entire way to Little Rock the radio and dashboard lights would blink on and off, so I knew something was wrong. We make it to Lances mom's and as soon as we turn off my car, it wont restart. So I freak out thinking its the alternator and that we wont get to spend our fun saturday together because we'll have to worry about fixing my stupid car. But thankfully, we check the battery and notice it has no fluid. So we went to Sam's and got a new battery and voila, my car was brand new again! Lance and I left Caden with his mom and we went shopping! It was Lance's day, so we went everywhere he wanted to go. But we ended up going to one of my favorite stores Gordman's so I could get an outfit for my cousin's wedding. We had dinner at a mexican restaurant called Cozymel's. It was DELICIOUS! I had a great time. We hardly ever go on date's or go out just the two of us, so it was really nice. Lance wanted to sleep in Sunday, so we skipped church. Then we did nothing but lay around all day. LITERALLY! We were so lazy, but it was nice just to lay around. lol. So, that was our weekend!! How was yours?

Five Question Friday


These past two weeks have been so busy with finals that I haven't got to participate in Five Question Friday. And I was totally bummed about it! But i'm back. Whoop! If you've never played, I would suggest go to Mama M's blog and check it out!


1. Do you have an iPhone and, if so, how do you get apps and what are your favorites?

I do not own an iPhone because my mom pays for my cell phone bill. And I dont' want her paying an extra $30 a month just for the iPhone. One day when I can afford it myself, i'll buy one.

2. What is your fondest memory of K-3rd grade?
Wow. Thats a hard one. I would have to say just making new friends and playing at playtime in these little houses that was in our classroom. We always played "house". lol it was pretty cute. I would also have to say, when I thought my bestfriend (shes my bestfriend today, not then) how to tie her shoes. Thats a great memory!

3. What makes you cringe at the thought of touching?
I hate digging old soggy food out of the kitchen drain. YUCK!!

4. If you could have any celebrity show up on your doorstep who would it be and why?
Jillian Michaels! I'm really trying to lose weight right now. I've been attending Zumba classes and watching what I eat and I could really use her to whip my butt into shape! So far I have lost 7 pounds in two weeks!

5. What would you say is your best physical feature?
I would used to say my eyes and smile. But since i've gained a lot of weight, my face has gotten all fat, so I dont feel like my face is as pretty. But i'm working on that!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Lance and I are going to Little Rock to spend the day together tomorrow for his birthday. I'm excited to just get out and spend some time together. I'll let yall know how it goes!

Where Have I Been?

Omg! I have not posted in like two weeks!! These past two weeks have been so crazy! I had finals, which I passed Anatomy & Physiology with a B and the lab with an A!! Whoo hoo! I am so proud of myself. This class was extremely tough but I told myself I wanted to do really good in it, and I did. It really helped to only have just these two classes for the semester too. I dont think I would have done so good if I had other classes with it. All of my time went to studying for A&P and it all paid off. I am now OFFICIALLY in Radiology school! If i didnt pass these two classes, I would have had to drop out. I am working full-time this summer, then i will quit my job when radiology school starts :(. I am a little sad because I have been working at this job before I even graduated high school which was three years ago! They have seen me graduate high school, start college, watch me grow into an independent woman and everything. They are sad that i'm leaving also. lol.

I do get kind of jealous when all of my friends are not working for the summer and laying out by the pool all day, everyday. But this is what is best for me, so I try not to get angry about it. I hope I will start having a lot more time for blogging now that school is over!! So if anyone out there still reads my blog, i'm very sorry for slacking...I hope you still stick around!

My sister graduated college this past weekend! I am so proud of her! It seems just like yesterday that we were playing in the bathtub together. haha! Now we are in college, and moving on with our lives. She graduated with a bachelors degree in psychology. Her and her husband, David, will be moving to Dallas, TX in August to start seminary school. She will go to get her masters in psychology, and become a psychologist. And David will get his master's in Divinity. I took lots of pictures, but my memory card on my camera doesn't fit in my computer at work, so I always have to transfer it over to a usb drive. I'll post pictures as soon as I can!

Have a fabulous day!

Finals!!

I know...i STILL haven't posted pictures of the house yet, but I will. This was a pretty busy weekend. But I managed to get my entire house cleaned so I wouldnt have to worry about it so I could study all week for my finals. I've got 2 exams on thursday and 1 on friday. I have a C in Anatomy and Physiology 2 lecture, and an A in the lab. I guess i'm pretty good at disecting minks! lol! I have to make a total of 172 points out of 200 on the 2 tests in lecture to get a B in the class. Thats what i'm pushing for, so I hope I can do it! I can't make lower than an 82 on my lab final to keep an A in the class. I think i'll do pretty good on that exam. I'll be studying my butt off for the next 3 days so I can do good, so wish me luck!!!

Have a fabulous week everyone!
