{Late Night or is it Early Morning Ramblings}

I am currently watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. I've been doing this for what seems like a week but it has to be longer than that. I am currently on season 6 and loving every single second of it. I dont know why. I dont usually like this type of show. Half the time i have no idea what any of them are talking about lol.

I think i should appologize for my lack of punctuation. Im using the a.i. keyboard (sorry no link) and they only give you word prediction and a couple other functions for like 14 days and then you have to pay to use them. Pfft. I think we are all well aware of the fact that Im way too cheap for that business. So i just shut it off now even though i have 8 days left. Why? Because Im hardcore like that!

There are only 2 days until the concert now!! I am so excited i dont know what Im gonna do with myself. My mom called today and asked what time we are gonna leave. Since its a 2 1/2hr drive (according to my maps app) and there is construction on 55 and close to Joliet its down to 1 lane its smart to leave kind of early. But that is gonna put us there during rush hour and it could possibly screw us. I dont want to get there late thats for damn sure but i dont want to get there too super early either. Then again the show is outside and I know that if we get there early enough we can see them in rehersals :). Do you know how friggin exciting that is?? The butterflies in my stomach when i think about it are ridiculous!! I have been waiting to get close to those boys since I was 15. 15!! That is 18yrs that Ive been waiting!!

OK well Im gonna go ahead and go. Ive taken enough of your time with my late night randomness ��

{Whats with the weather?}

It is supposed to be in the 70s all week here in cental IL and I'm not hating it. We have the air off and the windows open. It didnt seem like we got to do that for very long in the spring. Its one of my favorite things about those season changes. In the winter and most of the summer everything is all shut up and closed off to keep the hot air from invading our space, then in the winter we want to keep the cold air on the outside and the warm air in. But for those few short weeks between winter/spring, spring/summer, and summer/fall we can have the windows open and let the house fill with the sounds and smells from outside. All of which are usually people grilling or doing some other outside activity that they've missed while it was hot/cold.

Last night though there were some god awful smells outside. They filled the house and even after I shut the windows I could still smell them. For a minute I thought the dogs had gotten sick in their bed but no. It was all outside. I still have no idea what was going on out there.

Anyway- this week we are not only going to experience the weather but on Thursday I have to register all 3 kids for school��. I gotta say I'm not looking forward to the standing in line and filling out forms but I am looking forward to sending them to school and getting my life back. I have no idea what I'm going to do with all that free time cause I can't seem to find a job, but whatever. It will be enjoyable until it isn't anymore lol.

Alrighty I guess I'm done rambling for the day. I'm sure I'll be updating again soon.

{What's in My Purse?}

One of my favorite videos to watch on youtube are the "What's in my purse/bag videos". Since I don't do videos on youtube, I thought I'd just do this little tag here :). So here we go!

I got this amazing Steve Madden bag at TJ Maxx. The tag said that it's original price was $100 I got it for $80 (I believe. It was around February that I got it). I love this bag! It has 1 zipper pocket and 2 pockets on the opposite side for a phone or whatever you might want to put in there.




 On the inside it's full of stuff. Stuff I don't use every day and stuff I could probably do without carrying. But I have it in there anyway, just.in.case.


The items I didn't take individual pictures of are Elf make-up wipes, a Kroger reciept, Costco coupon book, a bag I keep my ear phones in, Trident orange gum, Sucrets from winter when I had a cold, a brush that holds 2 hair ties, and Huggies baby wipes (cause a mom should never be without them).

 The items inside.

Rose Salve. I got it from Bath & Body Works for $5.00.

Beauty Rush Victoria's Secret lipgloss. I never use it, it's too sticky. But I have it in there none the less.

Soft Lips in Pearl.


Clinique Lipstick that I don't wear because it's too red for me. But I stuck it in my purse when I got it (free from Ulta by the way) and there it has been.

The Big Lots version of Katie Perry's perfume. I like it :)

Hand sanitizer from Big Lots. $1 Can't beat that.

 Contact solution that I have no idea why it's even in there lol.


My new Kenneth Cole Reaction clutch that I'm using as a wallet. My old one was falling apart. I found this one at Gordmans for $14.99. 


My bestie made this lizard for me years ago. I never leave the house without it.



I have a ridiculous amount of rewards cards. Some of them I don't even use.

 My benefit make-up case that I got for making a $36 purchase. I love getting free stuff.

Inside my make-up case: Boi-ing concealer, Erase Paste concealer, Hard Candy Glamoflauge, Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation, Physicians Formula Organic mascara, Pop Eye Liner, 2 eye brushes, Revlon lipgloss (love it but I don't know what line it's from or the color.), and a hard candy mirror.

And there we have it. Does the inside of my purse look anything like yours? What do you keep in your purse that you can't leave the house without? Oh! I forgot my phone, it's not in there when I'm home though. I'm usually on it lol. It's a Galaxy S3 in white with a pink latex case. I like to switch out the case a lot. 

I hope you enjoyed this :) I'm think of doing a what's on my phone tag too. But I might have to film that one cause it'd be kind of hard to take pictures of all the apps. We shall see. Until next time! :)

{Time is Going by too Fast}

In the last few weeks I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off attempting to get all the kids ready for school. I still haven't started supply shopping but I think we will do that with the next check. But I have been running to appointment after appointment. Schools need way too much stuff. Has it always been this way? I don't remember having to go through all this crap when I was in school...maybe I just blocked it out cause it was unpleasant lol.

Anyway today was Drama Queens turn at the doctor. She is 11yrs old (not something I learned today lol), 4' 6" & 61lb. I can't even believe that she is that big already. Wasn't it just yesterday that she was entering pre-k??

Not only that but while we were there waiting for them to bring in her shots (she got 5 by the way) she brought up the fact that she is getting...wait for it...boobs! Yup.

I guess I'm gonna have to take her to get a bra. I can't even believe that she is ready for that already.

And of course with a bra comes the other fun thing about being a female. Or should I say...the "curse" of being a female. I am definitely not ready for any of that. *sigh*

{Its midnight I dont have a title}

I don't really know why I'm blogging right now. I don't really have anything to say honestly. I could complain about how bad my back hurts but I do that enough on Facebook lol.

The cat is shaking the bed with her scratching...I need to remember to put the flea drops on her and the dogs.

G is having his summer birthday this Saturday :). I'm glad he's OK with doing this, I always feel like he's getting the short end of the stick when it comes to birthdays. He was born after Christmas and right before New Years. Not only do people already have enough going on at that time but no one has any money. So a summer birthday is better :). We tried to get T to do it too but he refused. Oh well.

I have to register all 3 kids on the 1st of August. I'm dreading it. I don't want them all to go. I was fine when it was just the big kids but now Little Boy too? It might kill me. I do plan on getting some kind of job though while they're at school. I don't know where though.

D has been so amazing since I hurt my back :). Not a lot of women can say that their husband's did the laundry and cleaned the house while they were on their back in bed and in pain. Normally a man would either have the kids do the cleaning or do enough that it didn't look like a bomb exploded when the wife was back on her feet. But D actually vacuumed and moped the kitchen floor today. And all of the laundry is done!! Yeah I couldn't believe it either!

Let's just talk about my problem child while I'm at it too. Drama Queen has been such a big help since I got hurt. She has taken care of the dogs and brought me whatever I needed without question. She can be a massive pain in the ass sometimes but I think she's pretty awesome for not being one when she knew I couldn't do much for myself.

OK I guess I should go now. Enough rambling right? ☺

{It's almost over!}

I just put the kids school supply lists together using wunderlist (thanks to Tati for recommending it!). I am freaking out a little bit. Not from the amount of stuff I have to get (which all together is 51 items) but that it's almost time to actually buy the stuff on the list. This summer feels like it has gone by so fast. And to my surprise, we didn't have that much drama :). It was a welcome change from last summer I'm not gonna lie. It seemed like there was far more drama that necessary last summer and if you know me, you know I'm not into drama (unless it's on T.V.).

Today I also went shopping. Drama Queen and I first stopped at Target, where I bought the cutest little Minnie Mouse toy!


Nope, this isn't for me lol. My niece is turning 2 years old on the 18th of August. I have been itching to buy one since I saw them like a month ago and when I realized her birthday was so close, I knew this was my chance! Love it! The hardest part was picking which one to get. There were 3 different Minnies, I chose this one cause of the cute little dresses. I might go back and get another one. They're on clearance right now and I don't want to just get 1 when I spent more on my nephews birthday last month. But I'm excited for her to see them :). Maybe she will share and I can play with them too lol.

Since Ulta is right next door to Target I made a stop there too. I was on a mission to find the face peel that I've been searching for for months..and I found it!


This stuff is friggin' amazing!! And since Ulta was having a buy 1 get 1 50% off, I bought both of the above kinds :). 

While at Ulta I also thought I'd give the NYX Pore Filler primer a try. *sigh* It didn't feel as amazing on my hand as the Benefit Porefessionals primer. But I bought it anyway because I'm out of my Benefit and I just can not see spending $32 on it (I bought the $12 sample last time). The NYX one was only $13 ($12.99 actually). I might have to ask for the Benefit one for Christmas or something though cause I flippin' love that shit.


Then we went to Gordmans (next door to Ulta) and I fell in love with a purse and a wallet but I didn't buy them because I didn't want to break D's debit card lol. I'm gonna pick 'em up this weekend though I think :).

At walmart *gag* I wanted to get Little Boy's TMNT lunch box but they were out (so I'll buy it at Target instead). I did find a TMNT pencil case though (and upon looking on the school website I found out that he doesn't even need one *eye roll* so I might take it back and get G or Drama Queen theirs) and a matching backpack!



Little Boy is going to crap himself when he sees this! He is so excited for school (thank God!) and I'm excited to finally get to buy him stuff for it ;).

So that was my day today. Nothing exciting happened and I spent more money than I wanted to lol.

{Colgate Total Advance Mouth Wash #VoxBox #ColgateTotalMW }

Last week I got my very first Influenster box or VoxBox! I was so excited! It's for the Colgate Total Mouth Wash.


I was so excited to test it out. I've been using Optic White for a long time, so a new one is a welcome change :).

When I tried it for the first time I loved the minty taste (certainly better than the taste of the optic white)! But it doesn't really last all day. It says 12hr on the bottle but it didn't last past breakfast. Even the optic white nasty taste lasted longer than that.

Honestly I can't think of anything else to say about it. I wish I had more good things to say but no. It's not all that fabulous and it's not the most horrible mouth wash either.

Dislcaimer: I got this mouth wash for FREE and was not paid for this review. It is my honest opinion.

{A Work in Progress: Part 2}

I know I haven't been blogging much since we got back from our trip. But to be honest, there hasn't been that much to blog about. My days are filled with laundry and yelling at kids to "shut the door the air is on!" when they're running in from the pool. That's about it. So yeah, real exciting right? That's what I thought. Who wants to hear me bitch because my heathens are being...heatheny? lol

But today I have exciting news! We are finally getting closer to getting this house done, one room at a time. Well, actually 2 rooms at  a time.You can read all about the first part of our journey to an awesome house here. And today we got the rest of the ceiling painted white and even put up the crown molding!!

We went to Menards and got just some plain molding and then used the same paint we used on the trim and the floor. I think it turned out really nice!

The ceiling was finally finished too. Thank God no more of that hideous green/tan color.

And to put the icing on the cake, D put up the stencil that his aunt and uncle gave us as a wedding gift (yeah...a year ago lol). I have been waiting to get the living room kind of done for it to go up. I got my chance! :)





I think I'm gonna get some frames and put a bunch of family pictures all under it! I can't decide if I want to go uniform though and do all the same style or if I want to just get random styles and paint them all the same color? I don't know. What do you think? I've been pinning like a mad woman and I'm seeing that varying styles are popular.

There you have it folks, one room almost done :). I want new curtains and to get the stuff on the walls. We're still going to add a mantle piece (after we get a new T.V.) and eventually we'll put laminate floors down in there. But for right now, this is pretty close to perfect for me :).

What do you think?
