Blog Award!!

Whoo Hoo!
So excited about this Blog Award!
Thanks so much Kit and LivKit!!!!
I have loved reading both of these blogs!

To accept the Versatile Blogger Award the rules are:

{1}: Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
{2}: Share 7 things about yourself.
{3}: Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy!
{4}: Leave the recipients a note, telling them about the award.

So here we go! 7 things about me...hmm lets see if we can do this!

1): I am like 100% obsessed with Kelly Clarkson.  I love her, she loves me ;) we are practically best friends. I mean I have met her twice and she did smiled in my direction at a concert.

2): I LOVE Sunkist.  Even though it is one of the worst drinks for you in the entire world.  And the fact that it is galactic, glowing orange probs doesn't help.

3): This is getting hard....  I have inherited a kitty cat.  My sister got him for her apartment but she can't have it in her auntie jess is now the proud adoptive parent of her nephew kitty. Now I am not a huge fan of cats but Saw Saw is growing on me.. ;)

4.) I Love, Love, Love Ree Drumond.  She is amazing.  She is going to make my pants stop fitting, but I  will LOVE the process.  I have her cookbook on display in my kitchen and any time i get a hankering to whip up something in the Kitchen The Pioneer Woman is the first place I turn!

5): YouTube rules my life.  I secretly wish I could be a YouTube vlogger but i really don't think my life is interesting enough.  I want to be the shaytards when I have a family!  They are adorable!  I also watch all these makeup videos and.... this is embarassing...when I put on my makeup in the morning I pretend I am making a video on YouTube and describe all of the things I am doing.  Charlie has heard me in the bathroom before and come in laughing hysterically wondering what I am doing....

6): I am missing my boo! ;)

7): If I could have any talent it would be singing.  I cannot sing worth a lick, but if i could, girls, I'd belt out a solo in the drop of a hat.

whew that was kinda tough...
now its my turn to tag!

A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday!

Just found this on my leigh ashley and I decided to join!

{one} Have you ever seen a ghost?
When I was like 12, me and my friend Lauren were sleeping on a hide-a-bed couch and I woke up and saw a figure of something glowing.  Looking back it was probably a dream or the dark playing with my eyes.  But i freaked out and ran to my moms room.  Lauren saw me and followed me into mom's room and when she got in the door way both me and my mom screamed sooo loud!!!

{two} When was the last time you dressed up for Halloween?
Last year, Charlie and I decided last minute to go to a Halloween party for his fraternity.  We both pulled what we had and I ended up being Audrey Hepburn and he was a Canadian Hunter.... It was interesting..

{three} What's your favorite candy?
M&M's and KitKat but honestly, I will eat any candy you hand me except for Almond Joy....

{four} Did you have a favorite Halloween Costume growing up?
YES! I was Cruella DeVille for Halloween when I was younger.  My neighbor made a cape out of dalmation fabric, a black dress with sequins and i even glued fake red finger nails to the outside of my snazzy red gloves! Of course my trick or treat bag matched my outfit with the same dalmation fabric an a red silk trim! haha I was stylin' My sister was the Mask!  We went to Disney World for Halloween that year and it was also my favorite Halloween I have ever had!

{five} Did you carve pumpkins this year?
no...we painted pumpkins though!

{six} What's your favorite scary movie?
Definitely What Lies Beneath.  I remember watching that in high school with 3 of my best girlfriends.  We spent the night at my friend Margaret's house and scared ourselves silly.  Later a family moved into our neighborhood and Lauren and I called the mom Mary Fewer because she was creepy and weirded us out! 

{seven} Haunted Houses or Corn Mazes?
Well i have never done a corn maze before.  But i think I would like it.  I have been to a few haunted houses.  I screamed the whole way thru both of them, walking with my eyes closed and clinging to Charlie for dear life.  They were horrible.  The Haunted Mansion at Disney is my kind of Haunted House!

{eight} are you superstitious?

{nine} Have you ever owned a black cat?

{ten} what are your plans for this Halloween?
I will be handing out candy at my parents house and watching movies! Hopefully making some kind of fun Halloween treat!

Verse I needed to hear..

"I'll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness,
the taste of ashes, the poison I've swallowed.
I remember it all -- oh, how well I remember --
the feeling of hitting the bottom.
But there's one other thing I remember,
and remembering, I keep a grip on hope:
God's loyal love couldn't have run out,
His merciful love couldn't have dried up.
They're created new every morning.
How great Your faithfulness!
I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He's all I've got left.

God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,
to the woman who diligently seeks.
It's a good thing to quietly hope,
quietly hope for help from God.
It's a good thing when you're young
to stick it out through the hard times.

When life is heavy and hard to take,
go off by yourself.  Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer.  Don't ask questions:
Wait for hope to appear.
Don't run from trouble.  Take it full-face.
The "worst" is never the worst."
-lamentations 3: 19-30
the message

Found this when reading through my blog subscriptions and had to copy.
Thanks a lovely life for inspiring me today.

I was feeling sad and sorry for myself and all of the things that put you in just a down right bad mood.
Until shaytards came on my youtube homepage.
As soon as i saw shay, malachi and the cute chillins the sad lump in my throat was replaced by a huge laugh and now i feel about a TRILLION times better!
Its amazing what a cute little family will do for the soul!

 along with a little:

and Taylor Swift's new album while the next shaytard video loads makes for a fabulous night for me and the kitty!

It's Fall Ya'll!!

First off I got a call from Charlie last night!!!
It was a one minute call and he sounded good, it was hard to hear him but he said he was doing good, it wasn't scary and that he wouldn't be able to call back for a while.  I wrote him a letter today and it will be in the mail tomorrow.  He said they probably wouldn't get mail until next week but it will be there for him when they have the first mail call!
 I miss him so much!!!

The weekend before Charlie left we went with his family to a fall festival.
We decorated pumpkins and made scarecrows that we got to bring home.
Charlie made the heart one and it has our initials on each side and I made the anchor!
So cute!
It was so much fun!
We also saw our second grade teacher.
It was so good to see her and she was so excited to see that Charlie and I had gotten married and it all started in her second grade class.
It really got me into the spirit of fall and am loving it!
Even though we have only had a couple sweater days here, signs of fall are slowly creeping out.
The leaves are changing and scarecrows are in full force!
I bought some mums for our porch yesterday and I just love the way it brightens up the area.
I also love the fashion fall brings.
The tall boots, sweaters, leggings....I love all of it!
I bought these boots on Rue La La a couple of days ago and I cannot wait till they come in!

They are the Jack Rogers Greenwitch.
I got them at 50% on Rue La La!
Whoo Hoo! I love a good deal!

Today my mom, charlie's mom and I went and saw You Again.
It was really cute and funny!
I just love a good movie on a rainy day!

I'm off to bed to dream about cooler weather and my hubs!
Tomorrow its off to a fun day of work and to see this sweet girl:

Navy Bound.

Charlie left on Friday for Officer Candidate School in Rhode Island.
We had a wonderful week of just being with each other and our families.
I am soo happy to have that time with him and to just be together all day.
Though I am really sad that we won't see each other until Christmas, I am extremely proud of him for following his dreams.  He has always wanted to go into the military and he is finally accomplishing his goals.  It is something everyone dreams of.  He is so strong and I hope I can be a strong support for him.  I have no idea about the military so I am ready blogs, books, and others experiences to see what to expect.  His time away is going to go so fast and in no time it will be December and I will be at the airport picking him up!
This was the view from his room at the Navy Lodge last night.
He went to Dinner last night with his classmates and he had a Calamari Pizza.  I am not too sure what I think about that!
I love Calamari and Pizza, but together sounds kind of nasty! haha
But he said it was really good!
I am going to miss him soo much!
Charlie left Friday morning and his mom asked me to go to Lunch later that day.
We had an awesome lunch at probs my fav restaurant Croissants and then did a little "retail therapy"!
She gave me this awesome wreath that is magnetic and has all different kinds of cute magnets for every season.
The bow was originally red but i painted it Orange for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
For Christmas I will paint it back red and all of the cute christmas magnets.
She got the wreath from Hallmark and they have tons of other designs from this company!
It was a lot of fun getting to spend time with her and I am super excited about decorating my wreath for all the different seasons!

On Friday afternoon Sis and Jan came to stay at my apartment for the weekend. 
We had a blast and it was so good to spend time with both of them!
It was much needed!
We watched movies all day on saturday and didn't change out of our pajamas until dinner!
Jan's boyfriend is in the Navy also so she was so helpful in answering questions and just talking about everything.
I had a bittersweet weekend, It was sad to watch Charlie leave but I was so happy i had my friends and family there for me and we had an amazing time together!
