So What Wednesday!

So What Wednesday
Today I am linking up with the lovely Shannon over at L.A.I.D for another edition of
So What Wednesday!

Today I am saying "So What" to:
The fact that I used my telework day on Monday and was too scared to ask to do it again. Hopefully the DC traffic for the event today won't make my commute a mess!
I couldn't go to sleep last night and then when I finally did fall asleep I woke up at 3am and was wide awake. Luckily I played a little Candy Crush to kill the time.
I am stuck on level 30 of CC for like a week now. I know people who are way over 100. But like I said yesterday, atleast I passed my grandmother back on like level 19, because that would just be embarassing!
I didn't pack a lunch today. I packed my breakfast and snacks, but I had nothing to pack for lunch. I guess I will be getting a salad somewhere.
My goal of paying off all my debt isn't working out like it should have been. My goal was 3 years, but I just couldn't make that high of payments so I had to add some time to it. So instead of being debt free in January 2016, I will be debt free in January 2017. On the bright side my payment amounts are lower and I will still be paid off before the time I am 30!
We missed cheerleading last night and the next time we meet will be for the game on Thursday. I did call her at my Mom's house and go over the cheers we had learned with her already. We made a breakthrough yesterday because Hailey finally figured out she cheered for the FALCONS and not the VALCONS!
My house is a disaster zone and I have about a hundred broken down boxes in my kitchen that need to be taken to the recycle. For some reason Kenny decided he doesn't want to do it! I guess since they are overflowing, I will try to take them to the recycle this weekend. MEN! Ugh!
What are you saying "so what" to this Wednesday??

WW: A New Hairdo!

A friend of mine has just started out at a salon doing hair. She was running a special to get new clients so I figured I would jump on it!

Ta da! New some color and a new cut! It had been since June since I had done anything to it and I am very happy with the results!
If you live in the southern Maryland or are going to be visiting the area, check her out!

10 Things on Tuesday!

It's Tuessssssday again and what a Tuesday it has been!!!!!
1. For the last year I have been paying for DVR and had no clue at all we even had it! I never requested it so I didn't realize I was paying for it or that our box could even do it! I decided to try it out tonight and I could get used to this! I DVRed Teen Mom 3, set it to record Amish Mafia tonight and then Cheer Perfection tomorrow! I am on a DVRing roll!
2. I applied for a job today and I am really hoping that I get it or at least a chance to interview. I meet all the requirements and think it would be a pretty good opportunity. The only problem is that it will be a pay cut and believe me it will make things very tight for me. This is something I am worried about, but it would save hours in commuting and also put me much closer to Hailey if anything ever were to happen while in school. So if everyone can keep their fingers and toes crossed for me I would be very happy! When I put in my application it sent out reference requests to the people I put down. They all gave me really good recommendations. So we shall see! The job closed today!
3. We are in full swing with cheerleading. We met Friday, Saturday, yesterday and then today. Unfortunately with our summer schedule and me working, we couldn't make today. Thursday is the first game at 6pm! I am so excited of how far the girls have come just in these practices. Even though they aren't all in sync with the moves, they are starting to get louder and get things down pat!
4. Since I mentioned Teen Mom 3, is it just me or does all the Dads on the show look like they are on drugs most of the time? Hmmmm.
5. I had a good doctors appointment with the new doctor on Monday. She seemed to care a lot and be pretty efficient at trying to calm my high blood pressure. She said it is way to high still so she is changing my medications around. Hopefully it will help things out!
6. I got a post card in the mail today saying who Hailey's teacher will be. She will be in Mrs. Scheff's first grade class this year. We go Friday to drop all our supplies off and meet the teacher!
7. I still can not get over the fact that my little girl is going into first grade this year. She starts back to school next Tuesday!
8. Since school is starting, I am taking Tuesday and Wednesday off from work. Number one I want pictures and I can't trust dad with that. Number two, I want to be able to do her hair and make sure that she is all ready for her first day and number 3 I want to be close by in case there is any issues like last year or you know, if they decide to put my kid on the bus again when she is suppose to stay for aftercare! I'm sure it will be fine, but it is my job to worry!
9. I think my phone isn't handling Candy Crush very well. It has been running sooooo slow the last couple weeks since I downloaded it. Too bad I am stuck on level 30. Good news is, I passed my Grandmother! That could of been embarrassing!
10. Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the Martin Luther King march. We were told to avoid the DC and Northern VA areas, but I used my telework day yesterday for the doctors so I couldn't ask to telework like everyone else. Hopefully traffic isn't as crazy as they are predicting it to be. Kenny works like 3 blocks from it so he should also have a fun commute tomorrow.
Welp! That's it for this Tuesday! Anything you would like to share?!?

A Birthday Story Part 2!

So since I photo dropped enough yesterday with my part one story, I am ready to share her second party! This party was more for family and it was pretty mellow compared to usual. Not to many people showed up, but we did have some new faces that normally don't get a chance to come. It turned out pretty great if I may say so myself! And she got a ton of gifts, so that was mission complete for her!

Alright, enough with my story and on to some pictures!

This is when Hailey got there, Jaime yelled "surprise, it's your party!!"

This is the cake Hailey requested by drawing her ideas. My mom did an awesome job of making it happen!

 Jaime wanted Hailey to open hers next......
 .....and before Hailey opened it, she yelled "It's a lalaloopsy!"

 So happy with her Monster High dolls!

 Cake time!!!!!

Getting practice for two! ;) we shall see!

Versatile Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Heather at a A Mix of 6 ! I have never been nominated for anything like this so I thought it was pretty cool!
Wondering how it works? Here’s the deal…

1. Display the award certificate.

2. Announce your award with a post. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

3. Nominate 15 bloggers
The bloggers I am nominating are as follows:
(Can I come back to this one?!?)

4. Link to your nominees and let them know they’ve been nominated.
 (When I figure out who I will nominate!)

5. Include 7 interesting things about yourself in the post.

So here are 7 interesting things about myself!

1. I love to read and got super excited when I was invited into a book club!

2. I can't wink or roll my tongue. Never have and never will be able to!

3. I've always been into the car and truck scene, even way before I met Kenny or even owned a car. I have always loved going to shows and looking at cars. The first time I ever really talked to Kenny was at a truck show when he was with my brother. I think that's something that sparked an interest in each other.

4. I have 6 tattoos and 13 piercings and I really want more of both. When it comes to the tattoos, I have some ideas I love, but I have to sit on them to make sure it's what I really want.

5. I have only ever had three real boyfriends ever. Hailey has already got me beat (haha kidding!)

6. I know a lot about music and about bands. I even have an anniversary edition Fender Strat guitar that I got back in 9th grade and was learning to play.

7. I never was one who planned this perfect wedding as a girl and I was okay with the court house just Kenny and I, but as I get older and see people get married and have beautiful weddings, I am realizing all the things I really missed out on. Is there a rewind button?!?

A Birthday Story! Part 1

So since it's been over a week, I figured Hailey's Birthday post was way over due! Don't worry, I am only splitting it up since I have a ton of pictures! These pictures are from her actual Birthday, which was Friday the 16th. We woke up and did presents at home. Then we had a pretty mellow day and got ready for her party at Chuck E Cheese with her few close friends who she has grown up with! She gets to go to all of their parties, so she was excited to be having a party that she could invite them too! I figured she loves CEC and the other kids do too so it would be the easiest. I also figured it would be easier to do a small party with her friends and one with the family, instead of trying to jam it all into one like usual. This way she got to really enjoy herself and play with her friends.

So here are the pictures!!!!

 Her audience
Surprise! We got her another cat! Just kidding! Rosie just couldn't resist the bags and paper!


Did I mention this party consisted on my friends also?!? Haha
