Damn you Jared The Galleria of Jewelry

I know....there has been a lot of "damn you's" lately but this one is totally justifiable!  So I got off of work a little early today so I could run a couple of errands...Mia free....before I got home for the night.  I had to run to Target for diapers and juice and my crazy pills.  Then I ran to Cub to get a couple of groceries for dinner and the weekend.  Then I thought it was a real good idea to buzz on over to Jared to "look" at a couple of new glass charms for my Pandora bracelet.  I wanted to "look" for a February stone color and a May stone color for Carter and Belle's birthstones.   
First of all....Nikki in a jewelry store....not a good idea.  Nikki at Jared.....really not a good idea.  Pretty much every single piece of jewelry that I own is from there.....I know, I know...."he went to Jared"!!!  But really....he did!! 
Anyway, I ended up leaving there over $100 poorer and with a new fuckin credit card!  Yeah....I'm a total sucker.  I swear though, this girl was good.  I picked out my two glass murano purple and green pieces and was totally fine with that.  Then she was all like, "you should totally get a couple of spacers, then your pieces won't move around so much and clink all together, it will make it stiffer and help it to sit better on your wrist"  And then I was all like "well....I'm pretty sure my husband isn't going to be happy that I stopped here at all so I'm not too sure about the spacers".  And she was all " they are only like $15 a piece and it will make it soooo much better"  And I was all "OKAY!!!"  P.S. Yeah they weren't $15!!! 
So then I'm trying to decide on how I wanted to pay for it.  This is where the gal knew she had me.  She's all "well our interest rate on our Jared card is only 1.5% and our card is not through any kind of bank and it's all ours and blah blah blah blah"  Okay, fine, why not, it is where we get all of our jewelry.  So she ran it and it came back that I was approved for a $10,000 limit.  Seriously??  Are you fuckin kidding me?  Nikki....$10, store...Jared husband my beat me! 
In all reality though I would never be able to spend that much there....well I could....but I wouldn't.  And I am super pumped about my new charms and spacers.  And now I've got my eye on two more to add.  I should probably wait just a little bit though....maybe I'll go back next week!!!!

Damn you Dexter.....

Dexter.....what can I say....I fuckin love that show!!!  If you don't watch it....well....your stupid and should totally get on that shit.  Seriously best show!!! 
The reason why I mention it is because the 4th season just came out on DVD last week and so, of course, we had to go buy it because...well...did you not show ever!!!  We've been consumed!!! We finished it last night and now I'm sad.  It's over and it left me going.....ummmm....what the fuck?  Don't you love/hate shows like that that totally suck you in and you are completely consumed with it and if you don't get to watch it...well...then watch the hell out.  And seriously when is my kid gonna go to bed because I only have 2 episodes left??  I know....bad mom....but I need some time to myself...I've had this 20 pound growth on my ass lately and her name is Mia.  Totally different post though.....don't'll get that one later this week!
Justin is still on nights so we are on totally different schedules so we made a deal with each other that we wouldn't get more than 2 episodes ahead of each other and we couldn't talk about it until we both had seen the episode.  Yeah....we are hard core.  I don't want anyone ruining anything for me!  I had started the season first because I couldn't wait.  And of course I did not follow my own rules and was like 4 episodes ahead of him.....really though...the rules do not apply to me!!!  I never talked about it though and he finally caught up!  It's honestly that good.  Who doesn't love serial killers who kill serial killers???
So yeah....we are done and now I'm seriously contemplating ordering Showtime for a few months for when season 5 starts because I don't know if I can wait until next summer for that to come out on DVD. 
I'm a total sucker for these damn shows....I know I should really get out and go for a walk or something but I would much rather spend my time getting sucked up into these ridiculously good shows...I don't care...I like me my tv!!!  And again, if you haven't seen any of the episodes I highly recommend starting them!!

Bracelets, STP and damn colds

I don't think I've shared yet that I had a wonderful birthday and my husband definitely did not disappoint this year.  I only say that because he's not really known for his planning or creativity....lets just say a cd case and a card with a little kid picking her nose with a saying something like "this reminds me of you" was not gonna make me want to get in his pants. 
But this year....I received a beautiful Pandora bracelet.  I was eyeing these things at Jared and have been not so subtlely dropping hints that I would LOVE one of these.  
The blue murano glass is Justin's birthstone color, then there is a little purse because...well....yall know I love me my purses, the pink murano glass is Mia's birthstone color, then there is a butterfly that represents Miss Maryah, and then the green murano glass is my birthstone color. 
Then....yes there is a then....the following night we had dinner at my parents and I received another gift from my fabulous husband.  He got us tickets to go see Stone Temple Pilots.  LOVE THEM!!!  I do think though that it was more of a gift for him but whatev....I was still pumped!
So last Friday was the concert....we went out for cocktails and appetizers before and had a whole adult evening with very little "baby talk".   

Now... I'm not used to "heavy" bands and the two opening bands were just that.  A little much for me.  I'm used to jam bands and rugs and shit on the stage and joints being passed around.  Not some crazy asshats flailing their bodies around on stage. 
But then STP came out and it was FABULOUS!!!  Lets just say Scott Weiland in a grey suit with black shirt and red tie and some seriously dark sunglassess = SO SEXY.  There is just something about a man who can play the piano, play the guitar or a man who can sing that really does it for me!  (Lucky husband is an amazing piano player....too bad we don't have a piano.....he'd be one lucky fella if we did!!!).

So yeah....we had a great night.  Good drinks and food, fabulous concert and a wonderful date night with the hubby. 
Glad we got that in on Friday because as of Saturday I caught Mia's cold and have felt like shit for the last 3 days.  Oh yeah...she ended up with an ear infection last week....nice huh??  If it's not one thing it's the other.

Addiction...a sick sick addiction

I've come to the realization that in order to overcome a problem you need to first admit to yourself that you have a problem.  Well.....I HAVE a's hard for me to admit the problem and it's hard for me to talk about the problem.  But I feel like I can openly talk about it here. 
I'm asking for help....I NEED help.  I don't know if I can get through it on my own.  I'm not sure if interventions are needed or some kind of therapy is needed but something needs to change.  Something needs to be done and I need to want to change....I do want to change...I do. 

Do you see this??  Do you???  Do. You??  Brownies are the fuckin bane of my existence!!!  I CAN'T STOP EATING THEM!  For my birthday dessert I chose brownies instead of cake.  Well there was only maybe one row that was eaten on my birthday and so my wonderful mother sent the rest of this fuckin crate home with Justin and I.  The brownies came home with us on Saturday....this picture was taking last night (Monday).  We and when I say we I mean mostly me, ate this entire god damn thing of brownies!  Yeah...thats right....I ATE IT ALL!!!  I even drank milk straight out the carton!   
I got home from work today and thank the good lord Justin finished them off.  NO MORE FUCKIN BROWNIES!  They are banned from my house.  I need to nip this problem in the bud.  I'm putting an end to it.  I think I'm gonna just go cold turkey and try not to think about them too much. 
Please bare with me while I try to get through these first couple of days....I'm going to need some encouragement....because I do know where to find them!!

10 Months...Seriously...slow down!

Ummmm.....what's going on??  What did I tell you last month?  You need to slow your ass down.  I'm not ready to write this 10 month post...I'm pretty sure that I wrote the 9 month one 2 days ago and here I am again.  You are getting to be such a big girl and it makes mommy kinda sad.  Time really does fly by. 
I was just reading all your accomplishments that I had written down last month and am totally amazed at how so much can change in such a short amount of time. 

* You are scaling furniture and trying to stand on your own.  You think you can (you have for like 10 seconds...which may not seem like a long time but it totally was) but then you fall right on your little tookus! 
* We've figured out that you are more than likely going to be a dancer.  All we need to say is "Mia!" and your little ass is shaking and bouncing all over the place.  You stand at your little music table and play the shit out of that thing and dance dance dance...oh and you've started this whole head banging routine...not sure where that came from but your dad thinks it's totally bitchen!!!

* You clap!!!  You clap at everything.  You clap when your hungry, you clap when your pissed, you clap when your excited, you clap when you are tired, clap, clap, clap.  I can hear you on your monitor clapping in the middle of the night and in the morning.  I love your clapping!

* Just today you started walking behind your pusher.  Daddy was so fricken excited!!!  You totally kept up with it and just kept going.  It was one of those crazy milestones that was pretty amazing to see.  Thank god I got it on video!
* You LOVE the phone.  Any phone will do...actually anything that somewhat resembles a phone.  You've figured out what you do with it and put it up to your ear and talk and then you shove it in my face and want me to talk!  When you hear the word "hello" you instantly put your hand up to your ear!  So cute!
* You have a new word...."Uh Oh".  I have a feeling we are going to be hearing a whole lot more of that. 

* You officially have 4 toofers now.  Your top two front ones are in and it makes your smile that much more cute!
* Lately you think it's real funny to let the last sip of your bottle just drool out of your mouth and then spit it!  Pretty much any liquid you spit.  And when you do spit it usually ends up all over mommy! It makes for some wet clothing but it's still kinda funny!
* You LOVE your clothes.  We find you in your room playing with your clothes!??  Dad's in deep shit....he's got two girls who love them some fabulous clothes!!
* You have a weird obsession with my Medex lip balm and have cleverly figured out how to twist the top off.....which resulted in your dad and I finding you covered in chapstick!  Oooppss!
I love you munchkin!!!  It's hard to believe that there is only one more monthly post until you are one whole big year old!  You are my greatest accomplishment and am so lucky to be your mommy!

My last year of my twenties...shit I'm almost an adult!

This Friday the 6th is the start of my last year in my twenties......I'll offically be 29!  It sorta makes me a little sad?!  Not sure if that's normal.....but then I again that is not usually a word used to describe me!  I'm just coming to the realization that I'm totally a grown up!!  Holy shit when the hell did that happen.  First I'm a wife then a mom and now a grown up??  I want to know who allowed this and why!
I am pumped though because Justin was supposed to work but now he doesn't have to so he is taking me out for seafood with his mom and dad and sister.  And then on Saturday we are going for dinner out to the house with my family.  It's a tradition in our family that for birthdays we get to pick our birthday dinner and then just hang out and have some cocktails.  I picked a delicious pasta dish that my mom makes with steak, shrimp and zucchini in a cream sauce with linguine....completely low fat!!! 
I'm excited to spend the weekend with family and just relax!  Not so excited for the 90+ degree heat and humidity though....I've seriously had it with this heat....go away!!!!
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!!  Happy fricken Friday finally!

B's Golden Shower...I mean Birthday!

I've been meaning to put up some pics from B's golden 23rd birthday and I obviously have not gotten around to it since my mental status has been so fucked up lately!!!  (On a side note...this week has been pretty good!!)  So I thought I would share some.'s going to be mostly photos but I will get my ass back in gear here pretty soon!  We have a couple of busy months coming up so I'm sure there will be something I can ramble on about!

My niece B (Sabrina) turned 23 on July 23rd....hence the golden birthday!  My little B doesn't venture out of her little suburb of Stillwater too much so we decided we were taking her to "the cities".  We decided to bar hop out on Grand Ave in St. Paul...which I thoroughly enjoy bar hoping at.  It was tons of fun and some good old fashion adult/drinking/shot/swearing/sluring/hungoverness good time that I used to have back in my early twenties!  I should learn my lesson more fuckin jag bombs....that shit messes me up....I NEEDED to eat like 4 tacos when we got home. 

Me and the birthday girl at the beginning of the night!!  The self portraits get way better!
A little Goldschlager for her Golden birthday....yeah this may have been where things started getting fuzzy!  Plus I just want to point out the fab cleavage that B's got going on!!  Nothing wrong with showing a little boobie!
Me and two of my most favorite bestest peeps!!  My sissy's! 
There really isn't much to say about this??  I think I'll just leave it at that!
Special...I think that's the word I'm looking for?!
A bunch of Italians!!  We are pretty tight....there's a possibility that you see this shit on a billboard somewhere!!!  Just kidding....we're Italian....we like photos of ourselves!!!  Or at least I sisters would beat the shit out of me if I didn't add that in there!  Michael here is much worse than I though....he doesn't give two shits about pictures unless he's in them!!!  Well he does but they are just better when he's in them...just ask him!

Again...not a whole lot to so about these to asshats!!  They got a hold of my camera and this was one of the better ones!!!  Man I love these two!!!

They obviously have a very special bond.....should it bother me that my husband is trying to jam my sister's boob up to her chin??  Oh whatever!!! 

Justin is all bug eyed!!!  Probably still realing from the boobie incident a little earlier!

She obviously had a good time!!!  This was before we stopped at Taco Bell where B got the most deliciousl chili cheese burrito she's EVER had.  I shoved one of those bitches in my mouth in the car on the way home too....I need to eat it before I got to Justin because I wasn't sharin!!! 

I love spending time with my family. My sisters, B and I are all very close to our cousins and have so much fun when we get together....we usually end up talking shit about the stupid people in our family and act and talk completely innappropriately.....I LOVE IT and wouldn't have it any other way!!

Wordless Wednesdays.....Sort of!!! child is obsessed with the phone lately.  It can be any phone, the house phone, mommy's cell phone, daddy's cell phone....whatever!  She usually just shoves that shit in her mouth and drools all over them but lately she's figuring out what to do with it (We found this out when the cops showed up to my mom and dad's the other week because "someone" called 911....yeah I don't know?!)  She goes crazy when we call her Anties and Grandma and Grandpa and then usually just sits and smiles at the phone while they are talking to her. 
I'm posting this video because it's fricken hilarious.  Well at least to me it is so I'm going to make you believe that it is too!  She just started doing this out of no where.  All of a sudden when we say hello she puts her hand or whatever she has in her hand up to her ear. I almost peed my pants a little the first time she did it. 

I really do just want to eat her right up!!!  And again....I seriously HATE how I sound on video.  Pay no attention to the crazy lady talking in the background!

Mommy and Me Monday

I've been completely slacking on my Mommy and Me photos.  Actually I've really sucked but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. 
My handful of a monster lately is way to busy to be taking any pictures.  She'll take pictures if it's just her but the second that I try to make her sit with me.....yeah....not so much! 
This is the result of making her sit with me!!!
 "Seriously mom.....get that shit out of my face, I've had just about enough of you and that damn camera!"
 "Fine, whatever....I'll try to act like I sort of want to take this picture.  But you are still irritating the hell out of me."
"There....I tried to kinda smile.  But this is more self portraits today.  I'm done smiling for  you and that damn camera of yours!"
