Finally visited the beach!

Sad that I live about 10 minutes from the beach and its been over a year since I went! We have had lovely warm weather here in So Cal, so we ventured to the pier for lunch with our new neighbor friends on Sunday.

yummy shrimp and fish tacos!

I also spent some A LOTof time with this cutie!!

We also went to the Michael Jackson show that is on tour right now, more to come on that later...

Home Sick

I was excited to blog about my weekend, but I am not feeling so hot. I have been fighting anemia for the past 6 months or so, and this morning it got the best of me. 
I am home watching the finale of Kim&Kourtney take NY. I seriously love Scott and Kourtney, but Kim drives me nuts!! 

I found this recipe on Pinterest and made it for dinner on Friday. It wasn't anything AMAZING, but it was good... a nice change from what we normally make.
Here is the link... http://pinterest.com/pin/285697170081186484/

I will be back tomorrow when I'm feeling better!

One day....

After working 5 days in a row, which is not normal for my job, plus I did 14.5 hours Saturday and 16.5 Sunday... I finally had yesterday off. I tried to make it as enjoyable as possible and even laid down in the afternoon. To say I am burnt out is SO TRUE. I am back for two days and then off for my 3 day weekend.
With all the working, there isn't much exciting going on. Yesterday I worked out with my sis, got a pedicure with a new friend, visited another friend and her baby, had dinner with some other friends, and hit Target :)

Tummy time

Finally watched the Bachelor yesterday, what a mess. I really like Kacie B. but she was starting to break down and get whiney. Poor girl. And the obvious evil Courtney... can't believe he gave her that rose.

Happy Hump Day girls

Work it Out...then eat a donut

I have a LOVE/HATE relationshp with working out.
But I LOVE buying work out clothes.
Fiance bought me two VS pants for Xmas, and I bought myself another pair last week.
I have been going to an all girls studio where we SWEAT it out for an hour doing various excercises. It really is the best hour of my days sometimes. I feel I have gained muscle and become stronger these past few months.
These are really cute with lace on the top part

I came into work today at 5am! ewww! and its rainy outside and my boys were sound asleep :(

Thankfully the Captain brought donuts!!

Can it be March already??

Not only is March my birthday month, I am finally going to be reunited with my Bestie who lives in Indiana! Thanks to Groupon, there is a fabulous deal for 2 nights at the Palms hotel for about $200!!
It has been almost two years since we've seen each other, I am already on cloud 9 thinking about it!!

We met while I worked at a tanning salon, and we were all instant friends!

While I am sure most of you are off today, I am at work, but not complaining because I am getting double time and a half pay. 
I had a pretty good weekend relaxing and spending time with KT. I also went and bought my wedding dress!! I saved $200 on the dress which was a nice bonus.

We went to the mall where I got more workout pants and a new tank.
Last night we had dinner with some friends that moved to North Carolina about 6 months ago, silly me didn't take any pictures... except of my outfit :)

Happy MLK day!!

Up, Up, and Away!

I had the best day off yesterday!!
I had made reservations to take my dad on a helicopter ride for his birthday. I feel so blessed that I am in the position to do that for him!
It was a gorgeous day, clear with blue skies.
I will let the pictures do the explaining :)


Can't wait to do another trip again in the future!

Saturrrday....I mean Monday...

Since I worked all weekend, today is my Saturday.... and since I worked all weekend, I don't have too much to say.. 
I had my first 911 call about someone I have grown up with so that was kinda weird/strange/sad/scary.
She will never know that I was the one on the phone, but at least I can keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

I got the cutest picture of my Goddaughter today.... she should seriously be a baby model :)

Besides that, I went to my work out class this morning, FINALLY put the Christmas stuff away, caught up on Kim and Kourtney take NY... visited a girlfriend... and picked up a pie for my dad's birthday (today)!!
And lastly, I parted my hair different today :)
Snoozing while I blog...

Wedding Dresses...

I found the "OTHER" one!!
I am SO SO SO excited!!

I first went to this hellish place where the jerk owner only let me try on 5 dresses. So glad I didn't like any of them because I would have never bought for him!! The reviews are horrible for him and his store.

On Wednesday I made the drive to Kay's, NICEST people ever. I tried on about 12 dresses and thought a few were pretty, but didn't have "that" feeling...

Yesterday I checked out David's Bridal, although I was opposed to the one locally because my first stop in there for bridesmaid dresses was such a zoo I swore I wouldn't return. Yesterday I was sure to make an appointment and thankfully the store was on the quiet side.

I was slightly scared at first as they only had like 10 dresses in a 2, but the first dress the girl had pulled for me, was the ONE!! I didn't want to take it off!!
So here are all the ones I took pictures off, but obviously the ONE will stay in hiding until September!

Liked the simplicity of this one...
LOVED the top part on this, bottom was too big...

Liked the sash, but no the satin...
Liked the top, not the waist down...

Just wanted to try the one shoulder, too much for me.... 


This one makes me look funny but I thought I liked it...

I can't wait til September!!

Ring Blink Link Up

I am so excited!! This is my first blog link up!!
As a newly engaged girl, I am more than happy to show off my ring!

We were engaged on 06/26/11 when I found a sparkly ring around my Frappy's neck. I will always remember that special night with my favorite boys.

I am not a jewelery girl, so I take my ring off quite a bit. Normally at night, when I'm off to the gym, dishes, etc.
This is the only place I ever put my ring, its normally on my dresser but I didn't want to wake up the fiance while he was sleeping to take a picture.

My ring is a Princess Cut (1.1) Carat Diamond, Excellent Cut with a white gold band with the diamonds in a Platinum setting. Not going to lie, he knew what I wanted and I couldn't be happier.

Wedding is 09/02/12 :)

I had one of the best NYE nights in a long time.
I forced myself out of bed around 930pm to get ready to head to the hotel where my guy was spinning.
I danced the night away with some friends and kissed my guy at midnight.
I headed home around 1 because I had to get up at 530am for work, but I made double time and a half plus overtime so I couldn't pass that up. But yes, I was tired!!  Even ate McDonald's for breakfast.
I am bummed my pictures didn't come out great, waiting on a few more from a friend.
