Happy Friday! My Life in GIF's

It's finally Friday! Thank goodness! This weekend is going to be filled with projects, friends and fall festivities! I wanted to share what is currently happening in my life in GIF's because I love them so much.
What I'm listening to

Demi Lovato - Confident, Cool for the Summer, Stone Cold

New Kids on The Block (Forever and Always!)- Hanging Tough, Step by Step, Please Don't Go Girl

Fifth Harmony -Boss, Worth It, Sledgehammer

Little Mix - Move, Salute, Black Magic

What I'm watching

Below Deck

The People's Couch


Home Improvement
What I'm eating

Pasta - I've made like 3 pasta dishes this week and had them for left overs the next day. Maybe next week we should just have salad

What I've newly purchased

HUMIDIFIER! Our house is crazy dry in the fall, winter, spring time so I decided to bite the bullet and buy a new humidifier.

Christmas Presents- I'm killing it with Christmas presents this year! I've got 9 out of the 21 people I have to buy for done. I know what I'm getting about 8 others and the other 4 people I'm still working on but I'm sure I'll get there. Eric is only responsible for 2 of the 21 people because he doesn't like the things I would get them even though I think I'm one of the best gift givers ever! I do my research. I know what people need. I know what people want. I know what people don't know they wanted but now don't know how they could ever live without it!  Not to toot my own horn but I'm pretty good at finding the perfect present! I pride myself on it! Anyways only 2 months left to Christmas and I am not a fan of Black Friday shopping or shopping at all in December so I usually try to finish by Thanksgiving. I don't shop Black Friday but I will stand in the line for my sister while she shops... it's the least I can do.

Have an awesome weekend!

Show & Tell Tuesday; Halloween Costumes

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love dressing up! I never played dress up when I was a kid. We played house or school but we never put costumes on or anything like that. I guess that's why I love to become someone or something else for one night when its not weird for an adult to play dress up! Here is a break down of Eric and I's costumes over the last few years.
2014- We were Flo from Progressive and Mayhem from the All State Insurance.
2013- We were Ketchup and Mustard and Moose was a hot dog.
2012- We were Popeye and Vegetable Oil ( Popeye's mistress behind Olive Oil's back)
2010- Fred and Wilma Flintstone. I made both of our costumes. I do not look good as a carrot top!
2008- Eric was a weird hunter guy and I was some type of mythical goddess....these costumes were thrown together in 2 minutes.
2007- Eric was a party animal...we still have this mask and he loves to put it on every year when i get the Halloween decorations out... and I was Minnie Mouse.
2006- The one and only type I ever bared my stomach for a costume! I was a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader. I made my costume and sewed all the little stars on myself!
2005-I was an angel. This was my first Halloween experience at a college party so I was unaware you were supposed to show as much skin as possible.

Weekend Recap

This weekend was very low key, mostly because I’m still getting over the cough, cold, sinus whatever I had. Thursday I went back to the Dr and they gave me a zpack and cough syrup and prescribed plenty of rest so I took Friday off from work as well. I still answered emails and was doing work stuff but it’s so much better to do from my couch!  I finished the series of Gossip Girl. I must say I was disappointed that the 6th season was only 10 episodes long. I was expecting it to be 20+ like the rest then all of a sudden….dramatic ending….and done! I’m glad it’s done because that was too long of a series to binge! It was good though I have to admit!

Thursday Eric made an apple pie with a granola crust. Friday I went to the S.O.S to get my tabs renewed and when I got back the tin foil was on the ground. Moose had eaten almost all the granola and a few apples. He seemed to be fine, no barf and I didn't see any runs when we left him out. Eric was mad because he only had two pieces and I hadn’t even had one yet! You can see the damage he did based on the before pic and the after. You can see the crust line of where Eric had cut his two pieces out. Oops!
Friday the guy who farms our field cut the beans. I thought there was an earthquake because I couldn’t figure out what the loud noise was that was rattling our house!
Saturday Eric worked on the plumbing in the basement. He hates plumbing work because he doesn't think he’s good at it but so far nothing has leaked so I’m happy! (knock on wood!) We had a cozy fire going all day.
We had friends over at night to watch the MSU vs UofM football game. Eric and Adam went crazy when they ran the last play of the game! I’m excited that they won but I can’t believe people are sending death threats and hateful things to the UofM kicker. True fans support their team through the good and the bad!

Sunday I got a head start on my Christmas shopping! I crossed 3 people off my list which I'm excited about! I hate shopping only around the holidays when its madness in the malls. I like to spread out the joy of the holiday and shop on my own terms! 6 people down 12 more to go! ahahah

Weekend Recap: Illness and Pumpkins and Soup!

My weekend was not excellent! I started feeling sick on Thursday and Friday. Eric went on a fishing trip this weekend so it was just Moose, his ear infection, me and my upper respiratory infection/”allergies” for the weekend. I took a bath with Epson salts and lemon oils which was wonderful while watching Gossip Girl!
I received this wake up call by this cutie who wanted attention super early so I had to take video to show his neediness. 

Sunday Eric got home and brought me chicken noodle soup from Panera. In an effort to get me out of the house, Eric and I went to get pumpkins. We didn’t go to crazy this year just a few. I do love the colors of the fall and it did help me feel better for about an hour. 

This morning I woke up feeling under the weather still so I’m taking a sick day. I’m praying this goes away soon because I’m over this awful illness!

Weekend Recap

28 was one of my best birthdays yet! I was greated with lots of texts, phone calls, fb messages and visitors!
Thursday. We had dinner at my in-law's house. We had great food and conversation as always! We actually went through some of Eric's baby pictures and brought them home. I want to make a book of mine and one of his someday.
Friday. Eric and I went to dinner in town with friends. We had a gift card so we decided to use it. My parents were making their way over to our side of the state so we had some time to kill. Unfortunately they hit a deer when they were about 10 minutes from our house but they were both ok. Once they did arrive we had a few drinks and some conversation.
Saturday. We got donuts from the local bakery....yummy!! The boys went golfing while my mom and I hit the stores and we hit them hard! first we went to Kohl's and killed it! I just got a few basics but my mom got a lot of new clothes which she needed! The guy at the register gave us $10 off coupons, we had a 20% off and on top of that we got a ton of Kohl's cash! We had to take our bags back to the car because since that was our first stop we didn't want to lug all those bags around the mall! We hit a few more stores, had lunch then headed to Marshall's where we again...killed it! I'll try to take pictures tonight of all the stuff I got and post it tomorrow. We came home and hung out with Moose for a little while before we headed out for dinner. We had a few friends meeting us at a local restaurant. We reserved the back area by the pool tables per my husbands request but I didn't know exactly how it would work but it worked perfectly! We had great good, awesome company, great drinks and an amazing time! I could not be any luckier to have these people in my lives!
Sunday. The boys have a bunch of golfing vouchers that expire this year so they went golfing again. My mom and I decided to burn that Kohl's cash and hit a few more stores. Again we killed it! We got a few things for my sister and a few more things for ourselves! My thinking is that for the next 3 month's I'll be buying things for other people so right now I need to buy a lot of stuff for myself so I can splurge on others later! :) My parents left, we started a fire and had a lazy day. I caught up on my binge-athon of Gossip Girl and did laundry, Eric watched football, napped and watched football. I love those lazy Sundays when you can just relax and enjoy time together!
Anyways, I had an amazing weekend! I'll try to post a few pictures of the gifts I got because they are amazing!

It's My Birthday

This week I have been really bad with my posts and I feel terrible about that. Although today is my birthday so I get a pass I think! I love my birthday because that means it's sweater weather, hot cider and donuts, pretty colors in the trees, scarves, pumpkins and Hocus Pocus! :) But it also means we get to celebrate me!
Last night I started to binge watch Gossip Girl. I never watched it when it was on TV but now I'm getting into it. Can I please be Blake Lively?
