Thursday 13 :)

Once upon a time, there was this girl who LOVED to blog.  Somewhere between February and October, she fell off the band wagon.  She still got on and read everyones blogs, but she lost interest in updating her own....
Heck, I even tried to do the 30 day blog, and I barely made it to day 14!  haha
I have a bunch of things coming up that I am super excited about, so I thought I would start with a Thursday 13!!
Hope there are still a few of you that read this!!

  1. Landon and I are going to the TEXANS game this Sunday!  As you all know, I am a huge football fan, so this always makes me happy :)
  2. My Birthday is coming up and we are going painting with a bunch of friends!  Hard to believe I was about to leave for NYC this time last year.  30 has been a wonderful year (one of the best yet!)
  3. BREAKING DAWN comes out in 20 MORE DAYS!!  I already have my tickets to the midnight showing and then to the Friday afternoon showing too!  Yes, I know..I'm a bit addicted ;)
  4. Football playoffs!  Landon's team has been doing really good this year, and we are going to the playoffs!  We still have 2 more regular season games, but I'm looking forward to all the fun that it involves!!
  5. Halloween!!  I love this time of year!  My lovely little innocent child has decided to be Gene Simmons this year.  Oh lord..since when do 8 year olds like KISS?!?!  Maybe I should be worried, but his costume is hysterical!!  Pics to follow!
  6. Fall..which of course means fall festivals, pumpkin lattes, and wonderful weather!
  7. Christmas!!  I have been picking up things here and there, and have Landon almost done!  Unfortunately, I end up spending more this way, but I sure do feel like I'm doing something good!  lol
  8. Tomorrow is my Friday this week!  Landon has a field trip on Friday and I took the day off!  yay!
  9. X-Factor..I am totally loving this show!  Cant wait to see how it ends up!
  10. One of my best friends, Natalie and her husband are having a BABY BOY!!  They have been trying to have a baby for a while and I'm so glad to be adding another boy to our bunch!!
  11. To get back to the gym..hard to believe I am looking forward to that, but I actually miss it.  (wow..cant believe I just typed those words!!)
  12. Losing some more weight!  I have lost 30 lbs, but have been stuck now for a few months..ugh
  13. 98 DAYS UNTIL I LEAVE ON A CRUISE!!  Girls Trip 2012 is booked for Cozemel and I couldnt be happier!!!
Well, hope to hear from a few of you, and if all goes as planned, this girl will hopefully be updating again soon ;)

A little catch up on my 30 day blog challenge!!

Day 4 - Your favorite photograph of your best friend.

I have been blessed with some wonderful best friends!! I could do a whole post on each of them, but my bestest, most fabulous best friend, aka sister is
This is by all means not the best picture of us we have ever taken, but it was from New York and we were having the times of our lives!!
I love this pic of us :)

Day 5 - A photo of yourself two years ago.

This is Natalie and I at my birthday a little over 2 years ago.
She is one of my best friends too and we always have a great time!!

Day 6 - A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet.

Hate to say this, but I am not an animal person...AT ALL!!
I would be fine with no pets in my house! (which I am quite content with now!)

Day 8 - A song to match your mood.

Anything COUNTRY..I have such a passion for country music.  I listen to it literally ALL day, from the time I wake up until the time I get home.
My Pandora station slips in a few non country things, but I'm just your typical country girl :)
My favorite song changes daily, but anything by Easton Corbin, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Joe Nichols, ect makes me happy!!!

Day 9 - A photo of the last item your purchased.

My new iPhone 4!!!  I have had an iPhone for almost 2 year and have loved it.
I finally upgraded and couldn't be happier!!
Day 10 - A photo of your favorite place to eat.

I am a new found lover of sushi, so currently my favorite place is Nagoya!!
Its a new sushi place in Katy and I personally think its even better than Sushi Hana (gasp..my Katy peeps know what I'm talking about!  lol)

So there you have it..I obviously cant stick with blogging everyday, but I tried to make it up to you!  lol
(and in case you noticed, yes, I did skip day 7-what is your dream wedding...don't judge me! lol)
Hope to be back soon!

30 Day Blog Challenge..Day 3!

Day 3 - Your idea of the perfect first date.

Well, I am not your typical romantic gal.  I have been single for a long time, and have really become happy this way!  Its hard to even think about dating being as involved as I am in Landon and his activities.
I have a lot of friends that want to see me date, but I figure when the time is right, something will come along. I only have a few more years that Landon will want to hang out with me willingly, so I'm trying to enjoy them!  lol
I would have to say something relaxing..movies and a dinner would be a perfect first date.  And of course, they would have to get along with Landon and be a family man :)

Thursday Thirteen- TV favorites!!

So, I'm pretty sure its been a few years since I did a Thursday 13, but I'm trying to get back in swing of blogging!!  Lets hope in 2011 that I make more of an effort than in 2010!  lol

So, as most of you know, I have a huge TV obsession!!
I stay up way too late every night watching them, but I love it!

In no particular order...here is a list of what my DVR is set to record every week...

1. Grey's Anatomy
I have to admit, this show has really pissed me off in the last year, but I'm still holding out!  These last 2 weeks have been MUCH better, so fingers crossed!!
The last 10 seconds of last weeks should really change things up in months to come!! (if you know what I mean?!?)

2. American Idol
Wow..I was really impressed last night!  I didnt expect to like the new judges at all, and they really surprised me..I thought it was great!!
Maybe it was time for a change!!

3. Intervention
Crap, this show will make me cry, angry and then happy all in one hour!  Very powerful stuff, and God bless anyone who goes through that at all :(

4. Ellen
Mark my words..I will see her show LIVE in the next year or two!  I ABSOLUTLY love her!  I DVR it everyday!  She is probably the funniest person in the world to me!

5. The Bachelor
Oh Brad..I dont know why everyone gives you such a hard time! lol
He is hot, forgive the man!
Seriously..I have watched all 15 seasons and every year, I say I wont watch it again.  Obviously that doesnt work, because here I am!  lol
Emily if my front runner so far!

6. Private Practice 
LOVE IT!!  One of my top 2 favs!!
The drama..its just too good!!!

7. Brothers & Sisters 
What a dysfunctional family! 
Makes me feel like I'm not so crazy after all!  LOL

8. Desperate Housewives
I am obviously loyal to my shows or I would have dropped this one by now!  It has been a little better this season, its just so unrealistic!  O-well, I keep the ratings up, right?!?!

9. Holly's World
Yep, I said Holly, as in Hef's ex-girlfriend!  Total craziness, but hilarious too!  I'm a sucker for reality tv, what can I say?!?  It starts this week too, so I'm super happy!

10. Biggest Loser
LOVE IT!!  Makes me cry..EVERY week..no lie!
When I cry, I laugh, so my child always looks at me pretty crazy!
Landon is just as obsessed as I am, so I have to wait to watch it with him or he will get mad!  lol

11. CSI, Miami
Horatio..you either love him or hate him,
and I love him!

12. Glee
I hate to admit this, but I dont actually watch it yet.  I have over 30 episodes recorded and now I just feel overwhelmed.  Do I need to start from the beginning, or just start now?!?  Help!

13. Kendra
Well, if I watch Holly, you know I have to watch Kendra too!  lol
Hank and Kendra crack me up!  She is so stupid sometimes, but I just think the show is great!  Baby Hank is pretty darn cute too (other than they need to cut his poor hair!  lol)

So there you have it!  A little look into my DVR!!  What tv shows do you love?!?!

(back to my NYC posts soon!)
