Trying to Find My Happy

I've decided to start trying to find my happy. What are things that make me happy? Isn't that what makes "it" all worth it? Right?! A big "ah-ha" moment I had yesterday was that if I was just happy with me/my body then maybe I wouldn't have my weight problem. If I was just happy with what I have I wouldn't have such a spending/money problem. Okay I'll stop with those two biggies cause my list could go on and on!!! But y'all get what I'm gettin' at!

I've decided to STOP doing anything that doesn't make me happy and to start finding the stuff that does!!! I'm gonna embrace my "Happy Journey"!!!

Something that really makes me happy is...country music! So I'll leave y'all with two of my favorite Miranda Lambert songs. Hope y'all have a happy Tuesday!!!

Weekend Recap

Friday night Jaxon had a baseball game and so did Jonathan. Justin stayed with Jaxon at his while I headed to Jonathan's. His ended up being cancelled because they didn't have any umps show up, so on the way home Justin & I decided to go to Galveston and meet up with some friends & family! We did the bar, dancin' & karaoke thing!!! I was proud of myself for not getting sloshed & only having a few drink (this momma was NOT getting a hangover, holla)!!!

 Saturday we woke up and headed to our friends, Llyod & Adriel's house for a crawfish boil (seems like everyone was having one that day. There were 52 million pics on instagram of crawfish)!!!

I was really proud of myself that night too for my drinking!!! Adriel juiced me a fresh pineapple and I mixed it with some vodka. It was amaze-balls!!! Sunday we woke up and were strickin' with complete laziness (even the boys)!!! We just laid around, slept and watch TV (okay so I read a trashy romance novel all day. HEAVEN!)!!!

Hope y'all had a great weekend and happy Monday y'all!!

Teal Skinnies

Okay I've been wanting to try to wear more color skinnies. I've wrote about the red ones I found & wore and now it's all about the dark teal ones!!! I've been on pinterest scoping out the colored skinnies for a while now.

 So when I found the red ones I was so happy to snag teal ones as well. Again I got these for only $5!!! Holla!!!

I paired them with a Forever 21 top I got a while back at Goodwill for $5 and my brown boots (we were heading to baseball and for some strange reason it's a little chilly here in TX).

Love my wishbone necklace too! I picked this lovie up at an estate sale for $1!!! Can y'all say BARGAIN?!!!

Some one wanted in on the action!!! Evan cracks me up!!! Love him to bits!!! Happy Friday y'all!!!

A Texas Girl

I'm crushin' on Miss Kacey Musgraves! I'm loving all her music. Plus she wrote Mama's Broken Heart for Miranda Lambert (aka-my bff in my head). But most important of all this gal is representin' TEXAS!!! Holla!!!

Extra bonus...she hooked up with Josh Abbott Band, also from TEXAS (yes the best music comes from here), on their song Oh, Tonight!

So what y'all think?! She's gonna do big things, right?!!! Happy Thursday y'all!!!!

Weigh-In Wednesday

Not such a happy Weigh-In Wednesday. I've been eating all the crap I can find and shovin' it into my mouth it seems. So I really shouldn't be too surprised with my weight gain.

 (Tilt your head to read this cause for some reason I couldn't rotate the pic. Ugh!)

 Sooooooo not a happy momma with that number. I'm getting my big ass booty back on track. This morning for breakfast I made me one of those Green Monster smoothies that everyone is chugging!!!

I put 2 big handfuls of spinach, a little over a cup of frozen fruit and this whole little juice bag of coconut water. Then I blended that ish up!!!

(Of course I had to put it in a mason jar cause everything taste better in a mason jar, Duh!)

I love these and I always feel better after getting some good stuff in my body! Hope y'all try them. Now I'm off to squeeze a workout in and clean up around the house. Oh I also was able to order the 10 day Cleanse and some Spark from Advocare. Sooooo excited to do the Cleanse and hopefully get the crap I was putting into my body...OUT!!! Happy Wednesday y'all!!!

Spicy Pretzels

I'm in love with these spicy pretzels (not to mention that they go good with an ice cold beer)! Here's the recipe, but of course as usual I didn't have everything so I made do with what I had.

1 1/2 bag of pretzels
1 cup (or less, enough to coat) oil
1 pkg. ranch dressing
1/4 cayenne pepper
1/4 garlic salt

Mix it all together, pour over pretzels and toss. Bake at 200 for 1 1/2 hrs. tossing every 30 mins. Then eat and enjoy the amazingness!!!!

As you can see in the pic I took I used Tony's (I put that ish on everything) and olive oil. I didn't have any vegetable oil, plus I was making it healthy (okay so that's my story & I'm sticking to it, ha)!!! Hope y'all try it and love it!!! Happy Tuesday y'all!!!

Goodwill Hunting

This weekend was so much fun. My sister came down to watch Jonathan's baseball game Friday night and then Saturday we got up and went junkin'!!! I'm a sucka for Goodwill and thrift shops!!! These are a few of the treasures that I found...

And it wouldn't be a complete day unless we threw in some Mexican food and margaritas!!!

Later that night Justin & I went to a friend's AMAZING house for some Turkish food. It was so yummy & the first time for us to try it. Sunday we went to Justin's uncle's house for a goodbye party for his other uncle who is moving to Vegas. As always it was fun hanging out with family. Hope y'all had a great weekend. Happy Monday y'all!!!

Pinterest - Red Skinnies

So I found these red skinnies at Walmart of all places for only $5!!! Holla!!! I also got a pair in Teal & Kelly Green. I was soooooo excited since I've been wanting to rock some color skinnies. Of course after buying them I wondered wth kind of top do I wear with them. So I hit up Pinterest & this is what I came up with...

 Okay so the last one really wasn't inspiration, but it was too funny not to throw in there!!!

So what do y'all think! A little nautical & patriotic!!! Plus Jonathan's baseball game is tonight & his school colors are red & blue. Winning!!!

Happy Friday y'all!!!

Just a Lazy Day

Yesterday TOM came knockin' at my door & this momma was in pain. Poor little Evan asked me what was wrong and I told him that I have "girl problems". So he told me to go get my "girl problem thingy" (aka heating pad) and go lay on the couch! Funny thing, I always tell the boys I have "girl problems" when I get cramps and not once in all these years have any on them questioned what "girl problems" are! Yep, they're gonna grow up to be really smart husbands! Ha!!!

So we decided to just watch bad reality tv, build some airplanes with blocks, and just hang out in our jammies.

(I found these pics that Evan did yesterday! So proud! Ha!)

After picking up the other boys from school we did pretty much the same, but threw in some scooter ridin'! (Yes they do ride them inside sometimes & I've come to terms with it. With so many boys I have to pick & choose my battles or I'd be crazier than I already am.) Holla y'all, for our first week night off of baseball in a while too!!!

Oh BTW we were still in our jammies...

I felt bad for being so bitchy to Justin the night before (can y'all say PMS?!), so I decided to make him some cookies!

Okay I didn't workout. For one I was in pain and two I decided NOT to do my cardio at 5am in the dark!!! The other day really scared the bejeezus out of me. I really need to figure out what I can do to fit my workout in and how to get my cardio some other way. My eating was crap yesterday too. Did I mention TOM?! I need to get my stuff together & get back on track!!! Happy Thursday y'all!!!

Weigh-In Wednesday

UUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!!! Yep that's me screaming my head off. I weighed myself this morning and I am not a happy momma. The freakin' thing said I was at 162. That's like a 10lb weight gain in a few weeks. Really?! What is wrong with me?! Okay so I totally know a few of those lbs are from me having TOM right now and I'm looking a few months preggo from being bloated. Not a pretty sight y'all!!!

I know what my problem is...I'M LAZY!!! For reals! I haven't worked out like I used to or like I want to. (I know it's all mental & in my head. I need those evil voices to shut it down.) Plus I've been eating crap!

This was my dinner last night while I was at the ballpark. Give me a break peeps, I was there for 6hrs. Yep, you read that right. 3 boys, 3 games at 3 different ballparks!!! (not to mention the 3+ hrs I was in the car taking them to school & their games.) Sweet baby Jesus give me wine strength until this season is over!!!

BTW-I stumbled onto this blog called She's a Big Star & she was having a linky party for Weigh-In Wednesday, so I decided wth & jumped right in. If y'all are visiting from over there, HOLLA & thanks for stoppin' by!!! Happy Wednesday y'all!!!

5ish Wake Up Call

I DID IT!!! WHAT.WHAT!!! I actually woke up this morning at 5am (ok so I hit the snooze button until about 5:20). I got dressed. Drank the last of my Spark (love that ish, but man it's expensive. need to save up to buy some more). And I headed out the door for some cardio...

As soon as I did I was thinking maybe this wasn't such a good idea considering it was still dark outside. I kept imagining the boogie man jumping out to snatch me! I only had one earbud in, so I could hear if someone was sneaking up on me!!! After about 45 mins of freaking the ish out gettin' my sweat on I brought my workout back inside. We have a badass weight machine so I did that until about 6:30. Then I did my squats for this challenge thingy I've decided to do...

Now I'm sore and walking funny (that's what she said, ha)!!! Even though I.am.not a morning person I'm so happy I did it!!! Hopefully I can keep it up and keep the crazy thoughts of the dark out of my head!!! Happy Tuesday y'all!!!

One Year Anniversary

Saturday was our first wedding anniversary!!! Funny thing is we've been together for 13 years (& 3 kids) and just married one of those (I'll have to write y'all the whole story one of these days)!!!

 (My beautiful flowers Justin got me!)
 So what do we do...get pissy drunk go out and have a good time with friends. We headed to Galveston, met up with our friends and had a margarita at a place on the water called Squeeze. Then we headed to the Strand where some of our other friends live. On the walk to their loft we found this dive bar...Billie's Spirits!

It was so much fun. The bartender was a blast. She kept giving up free shots, since we were really the only ones there. Then these two guys started playing some music and they were kickass!!!

After hanging out for a bit there we finally made it to our friends loft. Had a beer and bathroom break then headed to another bar a few blocks over! We listened to some karaoke and did a few country line dances then called it a night (or if ya want to get technical it was early mornin')!!!

Sunday we woke up with a killer hangover and Justin's mom dropped the boys off. We mostly just hung out around the house and I went grocery shopping.

It was a fun weekend, but I've come to the realization that I might be getting too old for these "balls to the wall" drinking nights. For one I hate the hang overs, hate the not remembering, and I'm fairly certain it's not helping me shed any lbs!!! I'm pretty close to throwing in my party girl towel!!!  I've got a lot of soul searchin' on my hands it looks like. Ohs wells, happy Monday y'all!!!
