WHEEEEEE What a Weekend!

Well that sure passed by in a blur - was that a weekend? Friday night was just relaxing at home, watching some TV.

Saturday D and I went on the quest to find me a bad prom dress from the 90's for this coming Friday's Bad Prom 5k. Ok people where did all the horribly bad dresses go? Did they all get burned when we discover how bad they actually were? I found zilch...

I did find one that I thought might work.  I stood in line wait for a dressing room - kinda not believing I was actually going to try this thing on - I am a HUGE germaphobe and here I am in Salvation Army getting ready to try on a used garment in which I am totally unknowing of the source - don't get me wrong I will take hand me downs FROM PEOPLE I KNOW.

Any way I digress, as I am waiting for an open room I start to get the feeling that a couple who are both in one dressing room - presumably to not take up the only two fitting rooms in the joint - are actually getting it on. D and I stared at each other in amazement. Yes I have heard of dressing room relations - but isn't that usually in a place other than a thrift shop in the middle of the store??

After all that the dress - if you could even call it that - didn't fit. Even if it did I don't think I would have attempted a 5K in it. It was a bodysuit with tulle attached come to find out. That fact was NOT noticeable hanging on the hanger. I discover that in trying to put the damn thing on. Plus my boobs were way to big for it.

After that it was time to get lunch and figure out plan B since I had been to all the thrift stores in town and came up with zip. So at the bar and grille I started Googling DIY tutu's. Totally came up with directions from a mommy blog who made one in 4T. Just add more material right.. Nothing could go wrong... Yep I am winging it - will let you know how it goes.

I dropped $20 at Michael's on Sunday to make one. Haven't started it yet. I did however get some bad ass galaxy printed leggings to wear under this to be made hot pink and white tutu. I'm pretty sure there was some chick a prom back in the day rocking something similar....

Sunday D went to the Chiefs game and I went to the office to do billing paperwork. After that I went shopping... I got the leggings and the tulle for the tutu. I also got a kick ass new bag that I am loving right now.  Ended the day with the Broncos game, tossing dinner in the trash (it was horrible), another run through billing and Breaking Bad.

How was your weekend??

4 Years Ago Today

I've written this a thousand times in my head. I just can't seem to get it into black and white very well. Hundreds of pictures flood my mind, millions of words and memories all of it like a jumbled picture reel shown as credits at the end of a movie.

I'll never forget the day you left, it was on a Sunday, which always makes me think of the poem Tell Me on a Sunday. Why Sunday makes it better I'll never understand. Sunday, Monday whatever it all sucked. Never the less it was Sunday at 3:45 pm on the dot. Leave it to a life long military man to depart at an exact time. Couldn't be 3:43 or 3:47 but right on the fricken dot. Always so precise.

Holding your hand as you shuddered your last breath. Remembering so much, wishing so much. I remember thinking this can't be it but it was. Day's went by in a blur and I wondered if you ever knew that I actually spent so much  time searching, striving for your approval instead of harsh words. That I always wondered how I went from being daddy's girl to the girl who got all your criticism.  Some day's I did know that you cared that you loved me, like my wedding day, I will always cherish our dance. Other day's I wonder where I went so wrong what I did what I didn't do that was so wrong.

I get it now, you had no role model, your own upbringing so harsh so demanding. Some days it doesn't matter other days it does - still stings. Some days I am ok others I miss you more than words can even express others still I am so incredibly angry at you for leaving. Leaving me to deal with all the loose ends, the mother who now seems to not be able to deal with anything on her own.

Mostly I hope you are at peace, out of pain and you have figured out you did matter..

"What Cancer Cannot Do"

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

Thursday Mashup

Thursday's in the blogging world have several different themes I decided to mash them all together so....

Thankful Thursday:

For my job - yes its intense, high stress sometimes long hours, but I love it and there really isn't anything else I'd rather do - except do this job and win the lottery.

Friends and family - Some of you keep me sane - thank you.

JCP.Com coupon codes and rewards - I scored 9 new bath towels for $4.00. I have no clue where all my bath towels went I used to have a ton of them. I think we have 4 left.

The Fall TV shows are back on the air - this and boots are about the only thing I look forward to with the season change. I used to look forward to the time change but that's been jacked around so much its not even worth it anymore.

Thursday's Shit I don't Understand:

People who are constantly running late - WTF? Learn better time management.

People who steal equipment from the gym - uh why? Oh and thanks asshole. Its a small gym and it is noticed when you take the 10 lb free weights.

Where Wednesday feels Like Monday ............. AGAIN

So I took a poll and I am not the only one who feels like the weeks are getting more and more stressful and jam packed.. What is going on here??

The past few weeks the end of each day comes and I am exhausted and feel like I have been through the ringer... I have made a to do list and the thing that has been scratch off it ........... you guessed it make a to do list!!  Busy is good - it really is but can we scale down from Mach 5 to Mach 3 pretty please??

In looking at the calendar I have discovered this weekend is my last chance to go find a prom dress, so my quiet do nothing weekend has been preempted.. I will be hitting the thrift stores searching for tacky 90's prom wear!  I am looking forward to this 5K.. Nancy from The REAL Nancy Clue will be coming into town for this one and I am totally stoked to see her! That alone will be worth the fact I am not prepared for this at all!

I had my rest day yesterday so tonight back to the gym. I think I need to find something new to work on - I always hit the treadmill for 30 mins then the weights. I don't maybe I need to stop using the gym at the complex where I live and join a real gym and check out a personal trainer for a session or two.

I have recently started using Plexus Slim supplements to jump start me off the plateau I had hit and thus far are liking the energy I get from it. I have issues with a lot of the drink mixes as they cause instant migraines - I am thrilled this one does not. I am excited to see what the results are..  Anyone interested in Plexus let me know and I can get you information on what it is and what it does as well as get you in touch with my girl, Leslie.

Prayers For Baby Harper

Lora at Raising Steppe Sisters gave birth Sunday to little baby Harper. Harper is a bit early at 25 weeks weighing in at 1 lbs 9 oz.

Please send up prayers. Its pretty scary to have a little one come earlier than they are supposed to, having a micro preemie intensifies that a million times.What is supposed to be the greatest time ever becomes a scary roller coaster. They could use all the prayers they can get.  My own came along at 26 weeks and also weighed 1 lb 9oz. She's now 22, keep the faith!

A few bloggers have set up a fund raiser to help the family out with medical costs, which will end up being hefty. If you'd like to give here is the link. The funds go directly to Lora. Baby Harper Fund.

2nd Day of Fall and Monday Ramblings

So yesterday brought Fall ... it was a gorgeous day light breeze, sunshine and 80 degrees out - totally my type of Fall day! Today is a repeat. I could honestly handle year around temps like these and be a content and happy girl!

The past few weeks I've been a bit discombobulated without any real reason for it that I can tell. Maybe its just because we have been on the go so much and for so long.  My attention span is shot and my get up and go got up and left.

Saturday I attempted to clean house - I had really wanted to tear it apart and do a deep clean. How it really went down was more like ADD cleaning a little in this room a little in that room. I did get the living room done but not the front hall closet or much of anything else. The kitchen table has become a catch all for everything again.

Next weekend I think its time to "go off the grid" again for a while and recharge.  I think the only thing I am looking forward to about Winter is that things slow down. Its cold and no one really wants to go anywhere or do anything. The fire place gets lit and movies tossed in the DVD player or a book read. Now that I can't wait for!

I have a 5k coming up next weekend that I am so not ready for it looks like ton of fun, but I am a tad worried about my knee especially since I did NOT see the inside of the gym for most of the summer. YIKES.  I also need to stop at the sporting good store and get a band for my knee to see if that helps the knee cap stay where its suppose to and maybe cut down on the "clicking" it does.

Caught up with an old friend last night.... and the last few days of Summer

I finally got my ass back to the gym last night. Its been a crazy Summer and I really had no motivation to get off the couch after working all day. So last night I pretty much forced myself to go. Thing is I think I slept better and work up with more energy - its a hell of a cycle being to tired to go to the gym but the gym will give you more energy.

So this is what my stats on fitbit showed at the end of the day, yes (I went to bed at 10:16) - been a long time since I have seen anything close to this..

Yeah I'm still no doing stairs those are just the ones I am forced to go up in order to get in my front door. I go down them all day a work, but my left knee still hurts way to much going up so I rarely hit that step goal of 10 flights - which in fitbit world is 1 flight for every 10 feet in elevation you walk up.

So according to the calendar we have 3 days left of the Summer season - according to the weather man this morning I have 1 - just 1. Then a cold front comes in. I'm kinda sad about that. I love freaking love Summer. Shorts, tank tops, warm nights hanging out with friends sitting out talking until way to late. Sigh - that just doesn't happen much in Winter where I live, its too cold. 

However in the spirit of being positive and being in the moment I am going to try to not complain (too much) about the weather and the short days, lack of sunshine, being cold all the time etc... Besides this was in my email and its a good reminder..

If summer resisted fall, KayLynn, it wouldn't really be summer or fall.

Better to celebrate the season you're in... especially those of your wonderful life.

Everything keeps getting better,
    The Universe

So in the spirit of that - I am looking forward to pumpkin stuff - ie pumpkin pie, pumpkin rolls. Oh and boots and leggings! As well as my favorite shows being back on TV.

What are you looking forward to??

Throwback Thursday - The Prom Link Up


Yes it was the 90's check out that hairdo and hoop skirt...I did edit the photo to protect the innocent - not everyone wants their high school pictures all over the internet :-)

I went to prom with my high school sweetheart, it was his junior prom if I remember correctly - who would later become my only child's father - no I did not get knocked up at prom contrary to my mothers belief - lord that would have been one long ass pregnancy seeing how prom was in May of 1990 and little Ms. Peep was born in Aug 1991 but wasn't due until November of 1991 but that's another story.

We doubled with a couple I had never met but the guy was friends with my boyfriend. His date come to find out was all of 13 or 14 - what the hell were her parents thinking??? She manged to get totally wasted that night and proceed to vomit on EVERYTHING. The side of the limo - the side of my boyfriends house you name it she puked on it.. Except for us thank goodness.

When I asked her if she was allowed to drink - as she's grabbing and throwing back a bottle of Jack Daniels - she informs me that yes, she does this with her parents all the time.. MMMkkayyyy SURE you do. So when we left to take her seriously drunk ass home I made sure I assisted her up the stairs, gotta keep her safe yanno, and into her house. I smiled sweetly and informed her parents their princess was bombed off her ass and told us " oh yeah I get wasted with my parents all the time" then left them to deal with her.

The dance dance itself was a blast. I had a great time - hanging out with friends, trying to keep that freaking dress under control (never wear a hoop skirt), dancing to the best music (yes the 90's had THE best music), ending the dance with Bon Jovi's Never Say Goodbye.. AHH high school memories....

So what was YOUR prom like??

Edited to add... Years later I had that dress taken apart and had our daughter's Christmas dress made out of it

September 11 repost

September has become a seriously hard month for me.. Its the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks where I lost a good friend, the month my father passed away and the month my Great Aunt passed.

I sat down to write this post and decide to republish one I wrote a few years ago on September 5, 2007, it says it all.

Next week will be September 11, a hard day for just about every American alive. The day for me is especially painful. I will never forget, as so many of us never will, exactly where I was. I was on I-435 on my way to work when the news came over the radio that the first tower was hit. I was in my office when the second hit. At that moment I was glued to the radio, never knowing the call I would receive later that night would drop me to my knees.

I left my office early that day - most of us did. To go home and watch the coverage. I remember sitting glued to the TV tears just flowing as they replayed the plane crashes over and over. Images that are forever burned into my mind now. 

I vaguely remember hearing the phone ring. But will never forget the call. I listened as a disconnected voice told me that Craig's brother had been in the first tower. Panic overwhelmed me as this event became even more personal. Anger came from no where. I screamed and fell to my knees. I had seen the coverage, I knew what the chances were of survival, it had been years since I had even uttered anything resembling a prayer. But I prayed for hours that he was still with us and if not by the grace of God please please have let it be quick and as painless as possible. 

Chris was the brother I never had. My own personal James Dean. Man I miss you. every once in a while I will swear I hear your voice or see you walking around the corner. I almost scream your name when it hits me your gone. Your future was so bright.

It kills me that I will never see your smile again, hear your laugh when you tease me. I get mad when I think about never being at your wedding, holding your kids and playing Auntie. I know there is a reason for everything, this one I am still searching for. 

As the 11th comes near again just like any other time you are never far from my mind. I promise to try not to cry this year, but to celebrate the phenomenal but short life you led. I love and miss you every day.

Personalities - what makes you well you??

Another blogger, Megan, has a personality quiz up on her blog yesterday - I'm pretty much a sucker for a quiz, especially one that deals with personality - I was a tad surprised to find out I am introverted - until I started thinking about it. I seem extroverted but ONLY in a group of close friends. To the REST of the world yeah I'm pretty much the chick in the corner taking it all in.  The other part I disagree with is the feelings portion - I wear mine on my sleeve - but again ONLY if I know you. Outsiders I keep that pretty well out of site.

Here is what Jung has to say about  my personality...

Portrait of an ISFJ - Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging
(Introverted Sensing with Extraverted Feeling)

The Nurturer

As an ISFJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you takes things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit into your personal value system.
ISFJs live in a world that is concrete and kind. They are truly warm and kind-hearted, and want to believe the best of people. They value harmony and cooperation, and are likely to be very sensitive to other people's feelings. People value the ISFJ for their consideration and awareness, and their ability to bring out the best in others by their firm desire to believe the best.
ISFJs have a rich inner world that is not usually obvious to observers. They constantly take in information about people and situations that is personally important to them, and store it away. This tremendous store of information is usually startlingly accurate, because the ISFJ has an exceptional memory about things that are important to their value systems. It would not be uncommon for the ISFJ to remember a particular facial expression or conversation in precise detail years after the event occured, if the situation made an impression on the ISFJ.
ISFJs have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain. They value security and kindness, and respect traditions and laws. They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work. Therefore, they're not likely to buy into doing things in a new way, unless they're shown in a concrete way why its better than the established method.
ISFJs learn best by doing, rather than by reading about something in a book, or applying theory. For this reason, they are not likely to be found in fields which require a lot of conceptual analysis or theory. They value practical application. Traditional methods of higher education, which require a lot of theorizing and abstraction, are likely to be a chore for the ISFJ. The ISFJ learns a task best by being shown its practical application. Once the task is learned, and its practical importance is understood, the ISFJ will faithfully and tirelessly carry through the task to completion. The ISFJ is extremely dependable.
The ISFJ has an extremely well-developed sense of space, function, and aesthetic appeal. For that reason, they're likely to have beautifully furnished, functional homes. They make extremely good interior decorators. This special ability, combined with their sensitivity to other's feelings and desires, makes them very likely to be great gift-givers - finding the right gift which will be truly appreciated by the recipient.
More so than other types, ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings, as well as other people's feelings. They do not usually express their own feelings, keeping things inside. If they are negative feelings, they may build up inside the ISFJ until they turn into firm judgments against individuals which are difficult to unseed, once set. Many ISFJs learn to express themselves, and find outlets for their powerful emotions.
Just as the ISFJ is not likely to express their feelings, they are also not likely to let on that they know how others are feeling. However, they will speak up when they feel another individual really needs help, and in such cases they can truly help others become aware of their feelings.
The ISFJ feels a strong sense of responsibility and duty. They take their responsibilities very seriously, and can be counted on to follow through. For this reason, people naturally tend to rely on them. The ISFJ has a difficult time saying "no" when asked to do something, and may become over-burdened. In such cases, the ISFJ does not usually express their difficulties to others, because they intensely dislike conflict, and because they tend to place other people's needs over their own. The ISFJ needs to learn to identify, value, and express their own needs, if they wish to avoid becoming over-worked and taken for granted.
ISFJs need positive feedback from others. In the absence of positive feedback, or in the face of criticism, the ISFJ gets discouraged, and may even become depressed. When down on themselves or under great stress, the ISFJ begins to imagine all of the things that might go critically wrong in their life. They have strong feelings of inadequacy, and become convinced that "everything is all wrong", or "I can't do anything right".
The ISFJ is warm, generous, and dependable. They have many special gifts to offer, in their sensitivity to others, and their strong ability to keep things running smoothly. They need to remember to not be overly critical of themselves, and to give themselves some of the warmth and love which they freely dispense to others.

Hello Monday!!

Second week in September already.. Holidays will be here before we can blink. I have a friend who has already started the count down on Facebook..  Every year I say "This year we are going simple" annnnnnnd it doesn't happen LOL.. Oh sure I attempt it, then when it gets down to brass tacks I think its not enough and start adding.

This year I think I am just going to breathe and truly do simple and low key.  I have somethings in mind for the ladies in the family and some crafting I'd like to do. The guys I think I will hand over to D to deal with. I believe the only person I'll probably go overboard with is my grandbaby - That's allowed LOL.

Every year we do the holiday's at my Sister in Laws- she's got the most space - and that will probably be very low key as well this year, she will have a newborn and I am sure not up to putting on the huge spread. I have already hinted maybe we go to a restaurant.  I'm not sure how well received that will be however.

Now to figure out that whole crafting thing.....

What are your views on the holiday's this year? Traditions you can't/don't want to go without? Ones you would like to 86??

Friday Letters

Dear - Please stop asking me how do you remember _____ I don't remember them, no one who went to a large high schools knows everyone in their graduating class.. I get it your trying to still make bank now that everyone has connected on Facebook.

Dear Dentist - Please don't hurt me.

Dear Farrah Abraham - Shut up you are a moron oh and close your damn legs.

Dear Creepy Sales Guy at the Mall - No means no I don't want your $400 jar of miracle cream  and putting at 20 times magnification mirror up to a woman's face is just douchy.

Dear Media - Just because a woman steps out sporting bling on THAT finger doesn't mean you need to piece together a bs story on are they or are they not engaged.  Lots of women wear rings on "that finger" its not like its taboo to sport a ring if your not married..

Dear Pamela Hicks - Well aren't you a lovely bit of sunshine.  16 years after Princess Diana's death you have to come out to the media and blast her. Uh did you think about how her son's would feel about that.  I get your Charles' cousin - which makes you family but you really should know better than to slam a person 16 years after her death. Keeping it classy "Lady" Hicks..

Dear Calendar Year - Please slow down, I'm not ready to start thinking about Christmas shopping just yet.

Dear 50 Shades of Gray Casting - WTF??

Thursday's Shit I Don't Understand

Why people are STILL talking about Miley and the VMA's. Move on already they are way better things that went down on the VMA's - like the 25 minutes Justin performed..

Vanity plates - I confess 95% of the time I have no freaking clue what you are trying to say in 6 characters... WTF buy a bumper sticker. You can even have custom ones printed!

How people can get pissed at you for not helping them when they refuse to help themselves.

What motivated the first person to sell a used pregnancy test on Craig's list?
(Yes its really happening - Craig's List Pregnancy Tests)

This headline on Tyra Banks Hides Her Famous Curves in Sexy Bikini Pic.
One day I either want to name OPI nail polishes or create E! online headlines.

The casting for the 50 Shades of Gray movie ... WTF?

Why I am tired - I went to bed at 9:30 last night slept til 6:15 this morning and I am STILL yawning my ass off..

Why was I not born rich - I'd be lovely at being wealthy I just know it...

Grills - or specifically why on earth all these pop stars and models are wearing them these days - isn't that so 1999??

Another Late Night - or a Super Early Morning??

This weekend has not been the best for sleep for me.  Between the abscessed tooth and the fact I am normally a night person I have been up super late every night since Friday night. Last night/this morning I finally went to sleep at 6 am.  Despite that I only slept til 10:30 or so. Thankfully I am still off work Tuesday, but Tuesday night I have to get some sleep.

Monday was a pretty laid back day - which honestly are my favorite kinda days.  I finally made it in for a manicure - it had been 5 weeks. Honestly that is unheard of for me I am there every 2 weeks like clock work. Life has just been that busy.

Pretty sad looking.. 

Those are not my nails but since I can not capture the colors in this polish well at all I had to search the interwebs for a good picture. This polish has quickly become a favorite of mine.  The color changes depending on the light and angle in which you are looking at it. 

After the much needed nail salon trip D and grabbed a late lunch at Houlihan's then headed to the mall to exchange some bra's I purchased. I managed to buy the wrong size twice that's how much of a hurry I have been in and how much stress has been up in my world. I mean seriously who does that? I know my size I remember searching the racks for it and then proceed to purchase the wrong ones TWICE.. 

After the mall we hit a local pawn shop - to shop not to pawn, where I found this little beauty at an insane price - so it had to come home with me.. It is a black and white diamond cross over ring. I have had my eye on a similar one at a jewelry store. 

After that we hit Kohl's where we managed to find D three pairs of jeans. Which is a huge score as it is so hard to find him pants that are ever long enough never mind find 3 pairs that were on sale. At 6'6 when you find pants long enough you purchase all you can find - the sale is a bonus!  

Now I am just sitting here watching the DVR, blogging and having some downtime. Pretty successful day - How was your Labor Day?

Well its here .......

September begins, and it started with a bang.  I woke up with tooth pain. UGG I hate the dentist - or more accurately I am TERRIFIED of the dentist. Full blown panic attacks ensue when I have to go see the dentist. So I am less than thrilled with having to go see him Tuesday when the office opens after the holiday weekend.

The only thing worse is the massive pain I am currently in while I contemplate ripping out my own molar.  I did go to urgent care today for antibiotics and worthless pain medication that does nothing. I'm also not a happy camper that my 4 day weekend is filled with pain and having to go see the dentist.. Dear universe when I said I was pretty sure I couldn't handle anything else it was NOT a challenge!

I did pick up some new eye shadow, primer and one of OPI's new fall nail polishes this weekend. I have already used the polish on my toes and am in love. Its very different from what I usually wear, its a metallic green and purple. Which is hard to tell in picture but it is an awesome color.

The pallet on the left is Nyx smokey and the right is Nyx naturals  

The polish is OPI's Peace & Love & OPI from the San Francisco collection. Depending on how the light hits it depends on the color pattern you see. 
 I can't wait to get my manicure and see it on my fingernails. 

While Summer is my favorite season I am looking forward to Fall's fashion and colors and the decline of bugs. I'm tired of getting bit!  What are you looking forward to about Fall??

Just Finished - Mother, Mother - Koren Zailckas

Ever have a book that once you finish it you have no idea what to read next because nothing sounds good after the world you just finished. ...
