My heart is smiling!

What a great weekend!  My family is such a blessing to me! Thank you, Lord.  (Missed you, Ben)
I got to spend so much time with my hyper, free-spirited, and loving nephew.  He changes and has always learned something new every time I see him!  He said a complete sentence this time, and he has learned so many new words. He has also become extremely dramatic!--I guess I have taught him well.  He likes to "act" and I think it is adorable.  We went to the Memphis Children's Museum and he LOVED the fishing area-did NOT want to leave it, so he got his own fishing pole before we left :).
Ton-Ton decided she wanted to work out with me Thursday night.  We did LEVEL 1 of the 30 day shred. HA! I am laughing just thinking about it.  First, she asked if she could workout in her PJs....I had to quickly explain to her that this is a rather strenuous workout (pretty serious).  I don't think she really believed me until we started the first strength move--unfortunately, I was the one to fall on my face laughing! :)  I will leave it at this---she was extremely sore the rest of the weekend :)
It was also great to see my grandparents--they finally got their house finished and it looks so good!  Nanny got a new wig and could not wait to show me!  So cute :) Of course I couldn't leave their house without bringing SOMETHING old home to paint!||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules-_-

This piece from pottery barn has been so inspirational!! I am obsessed, and I've noticed I have incorporated it into so many things I've been painting lately.  Want. It!!!

I FINALLY got a new phone!!--thanks to my LOVING sister for letting me use her upgrade :)... It is so great to not have to pick my fingernails while I wait for my text message screen to open so I can type a text! ha!

A little spring-time jingle...

I wish I could say this is a bright and peppy little jingle, ISN'T...
This is what came out of my mouth (without any rehearsal...I guess I was just tired of getting mad and "rubbing her nose in it" when EmJay goes potty in all the wrong places)

I love you...
Oh dear me...
That's not where you're supposed to pee.....
With a great big sigh & a glare from me to you..
Please say you aren't going number two...
(yes this is what my life and brain have come to..)

She has grown so much!! She can now stand on her back legs and reach the top of Ben's counters!!! O-M-GEEE...not cool!
She goes back to the vet on Saturday for her second round of vaccinations!

Can't wait to go hang out with the Ceolas tonight & have a dance party with the Kinect!--woop woop!

I'd like to say a GREAT BIG.."THANKS" to my lovely boyfriend.  He was not feeling well so he stayed in the car while I ran into Wal-Mart last night..and surprised me with a full tank of gas (he knows I HATE going to get gas)! :) Happy girl here!

Bring on SPRING!

I aboslutely LOVE spring... probably my favorite season!  I'm so excited for warm weather & getting to be outside A LOT more!  I also love that it is still daylight when Ben gets off work !  Can't wait to: have backyard BBQs, take EmJay on walks & to the park, have patio dinners at my favorite restaurants, wear colorful clothes & tank tops(!), see what Ben is like in the spring, plant flowers, use my new spring pillows from Pier 1 (if you haven't been there lately-go!--I have a fetish with pillows & my poor couch is COVERED in them), and run OUTSIDE!!

I came to Ben's to let EmJay out after my BIG day....  she stays in his laundry room during the day... and she had been a very bad girl!  She ripped into (with her fiercely long nails) and chewed up some of the door facing! Ahhhh..daddy is NOT going to be happy!

I am excited to go with Hope to the Paul Mitchell hair show tonight!

Can't wait for the weekend!!
