Pickin Pumpkins

Yesterday my poor dad had another foot surgery! I left work early to drop in on him and bring him my ipad so he would have some entertainment while laying on the couch for the new few days. I really hope this surgery is it and stops feeling so much pain.

Last night we hit up the Pumpkin Patch with Megan & Trevor and sadly it wasn't all that great. All the pumpkins were the same small size and wasn't much to choose from. But we each found one and headed home to carve. I will post pictures tomorrow of the finished product.

Thankfully I am off early again today, gotta make cupcakes, check on my dad, and go to Costco because tonight we are having our Halloween party!! I am so excited to see everyone dressed up! I really hope we have a house next year because fitting everyone in a apartment kinda sucks!!

Shuffle Board

Sunday night we met some friends at a bar to celebrate our friend Will's birthday and we learned how to play shuffle board. It was so much fun! I won all three games and want to play some more!

Last night we just stayed home and hung with Frappy. Here are my boys this morning...

And here is Frap and I last night...

Happy Tuesday!

Wishing and Hoping

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the circle of life, and frankly I don't like it. I already lost my mom, by NO means am I ready to lose anyone else. Frappy is my world and some think I'm crazy, but I just adore him. I really feel like he was meant to be mine. Right now I am just watching him nap wondering how long I will be blessed with him. We went to the vet yesterday and she pretty much said that once seizures start to get more severe, we gotta get him on more medicine. Which we started yesterday. He hadn't had a blood test for years so I agreed to do one, not knowing it was gonna cost $146!! Out the door I paid $252!! I cried all the way home :p Definitely a hot mess. I slept awful last night thinking about him and listening to him breathe/snore. I'm so stressed I can't even nap. I sure hope this medicine works and keeps my boy around. Thanks for your sweet comments, it feels good to get this journaled.

Scare #2

Frappy had another severe seizure on Wednesday night, I thought I had lost him. We are going to the vet tomorrow to see what can be done, maybe a change in medicine needs to happen. That's 2 seizures in less than a month and severe ones at that. Hoping we get this figured out and get my Frap better.

Tonight we are going to lay low and catch up on our shows, I think the bf is getting sick...

Tomorrow we have a reception to attend for the friends that got married last month in Hawaii... not sure what they have planned other than friends/family gathering at their house...

Look at these cute booties I got for my goddaughter :)

Happy Friday Girls!

My bf loves me!

Whenever the bf has a wedding, he takes both laptops with him in case one computer has a problem, he could just use the other. Even though that has never happened, he is prepared :) But that leaves me without a computer and sometimes I get bored and wish I had an Ipad... So the other night we went and he bought one for us! I haven't really had much time to play with it but I know it will be super useful when I want to do my blogging :)
For some reason it looks huge here and I am half awake in this picture as it was 730am.

Off to read your blogs xo

Horror Night

Friday night after work we drove up to Universal Studios and went to Halloween Horror Night and it was so much fun!! The park went ALL out with SO many people dressed up and the mazes were great. Yes there was a lot of people but thankfully they only sell so many tickets and then they hit capacity. Since most of the attraction is walking thru mazes and getting scared, the lines are constantly moving. There were only 5 rides open but we went on all of them with minimal wait. Like 5 minutes! The Simpson's ride was way cooler than I thought it was going to be! There was a tram that took us to Chucky's Maze and that was pretty cool except we had to walk up a mountain and I felt like I was hiking! We had a great time though!!

Treats in the mail

Last week I had an email from Burt's Bee in my email saying they were offering "grab bags" for only $20. I knew they would go fast so I jumped on it and ordered myself one. I figured I could always use some of the items for Christmas stocking stuffers or what not. Here is what I got for $20, and had free shipping!

Last night we had dinner with one of our favorite couples, she is 4 months preggo and I can't wait to hear what she is having. I am itching to buy stuff for all my pregnant friends. 
Tonight we have another couple coming over, although I am exhausted and wish we hadn't done back to back nights. And we will be out late tomorrow night. Sigh.

I am wondering the identity of some of you.... I can see the cities of where people are from and I know some of you haven't commented before... I would love to "meet" whoever you quiet ones are!

The boy and I were asked to be the Godparents of the little girl our best friends are going to have in March. We are SO HONORED!! From what I researched, I think it started off as a Catholic thing but since we aren't Catholic, I was wondering what type of role they wanted us to take. God forbid anything happens to both of them, they want us to raise their girl. WOW!! That is just an amazing gift in itself to be asked. We said YES. We will be there no matter what for their child. We cannot wait to meet her!!

They lived downstairs from us last year at our apartment and it was so cool to just walk downstairs to see our besties. They are sadly back in Indiana but hopefully returning to Cali after the baby makes its appearance.

This weekend I hit 100,000 miles on my car! Sad!! Since I commute 30 minutes each way to work, I am going to keep my car another year and hopefully get a new car next December.
This weekend was really nice and low key. Friday after work we had dinner with our closest group of friends and played Catch Phrase afterwards. Great night in my book.
Saturday I took my new friend to a nice mall in our area looking for wedding shoes... I saw so many fun shoes that I would totally consider for my big day! Whenever that may be!
Sunday I got a new purse! I figured it was time to put away the purple bag being fall and all. Here is my new Coach bag :)
Its a lot smaller than I'm used to but I really like it. Thank gosh for having a Coach outlet so close.
Tonight I am off to an orientation for another 911 dispatcher meeting...  Interview next Monday... we shall see...

Making Friends

I love making new friends! I love to reach out to people and see what happens. A new girl started at my work and she moved from Florida to California. I knew she didn't know anyone and I felt bad thinking, she doesn't know our town and she doesn't have anyone to hang with. We went to dinner last night and it was such a great time. We talked for two hours and totally clicked.

Some of my closest friends became friends because I took a chance and reached out. When I worked at the tanning salon, I was always chatty with my regular tanners. Well, I would say two of my closest girlfriends came from me working at the salon. Even though I don't like how my time ended there, I gained some friendships that I just love!

Tonight, I am off to dinner with more friends to enjoy Mexican food and Margaritas! So thrilled its Friday! Oh! And I went to Ulta last night and OPI was having a buy 2 nail polish and get 1 free kind of deal! Plus I had a $5 dollar off coupon! $13 for 3 bottles! Score!

Oliver Peoples

My most favorite job was working at the Oliver Peoples corporate office in West Hollywood. I was only there for a year but gosh I miss it!! Every day I was surrounded by amazing sunglasses and with an AMAZING discount, so I have LOTS of sunglasses!

If any of you want to score a pair of these for $134 then hop on over to... normally $400!!

The deal is WAY too good to pass up. Here are my favorites!!
I have all 3 of these pairs in numerous colors. LOVE them!! 
You only have 16 hours until the sale ends!!

Happy Gloomy Sunday

Well it is starting to look like Fall around here, very gloomy and overcast today. Having a very relaxing Sunday and trying to make the day feel long as tomorrow is already Monday.

Friday night we met one of our favorite couples at the movies and saw Wall Street. Any of you girls seen it? It was okay... nothing to special in my eyes... We also grabbed a quick, yummy dinner before and here is what we had....

I just love those little street tacos :)
Yesterday I had lunch with two girlfriends, and we strolled the mall and shopped at our new H&M. I liked the baby/kid section the best, such cute little outfits! Considering 3 very close girlfriends are all pregnant, I guess I will be broke in the months of March, April, May! Praying for one especially as she has endometrosis and is only 6 weeks along but spotting here and there...

Did I mention my niece finally figured out crawling?? Finally!! Now my sister really can't take her eyes off her! I am missing those kiddos!!

Happy Sunday xo
