I Want A Blog Space

Hey Hotness! (did you instantly think of Katniss? Yes. Don't. Lie.) Happy Friday! After work I''m heading to the coast to try to soak up what's left of summer. While I'm counting down the hours until I head to the coast today, read all about what I plan to do in my guest room! I promise if I get this finished, I will show you the final product!


I have daydreamed about making our guest room more useful. Right now it's a cluster of junk and a bed thrown into the middle of it. The closet? Oh Em Gee! It looks like some threw up Christmas, Craft, and high school all in one spot! Yeah. that. dramatic. It's a big closet, but non-functional at the moment with all the shit piled in it.
I want a place I can get away from everything and it be peaceful. I want to be able to blog or be able to gather my supplies for sewing or crafting. I have a dresser I will be sorting my craft supplies into.

Here is the idea I have in mind.
I have most of this on hand already. I have the futon, desk, lamp, and the side table. I just need to find a cheap white futon cover, the mirror, and some curtains similar. That will get me started and then I can accessorise! The color scheme is exactly what I am going for! I want it to be colorful but not too bright! Now, I guess I need to find the motivation to pull this together. Can someone convince my hubby to help?
Do you dream of having a space you can call your own at your house?
Do you already have your own space? I'm jealous!


Nail Files Link-Up

Hiya Peeps! I am sure y'all have big plans for the long Labor Day weekend! We're heading to the coast for a few days before this summer is over! If you haven't made plans, I sure hope you do!

Last night I had to get my polishes out and get my paint on, so I took pictures to share with you hottie toddies out there in blogland!

This was really easy to do!

  • Clear base coat
  • Two coats for Island Coral
  • One coat of Strobe Light on bottom half of nail
  • Let all dry for ten minutes then add a final top coat with Flawless

I hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day weekend!

Sneak A Peek

I am going to be completely honest here. We have not had professional family photos done since Zane was 14 days old! 14 DAYS! I hang my head in shame, I know. But I have LOTS of photos that I have taken on my own that make up for that. I really do not see a need in have tons and tons of pictures that are posed with a fake background behind you or a black background. Once is enough for me on that.
A friend I went to high school with started her photography business last year and is booming like crazy! She took some pictures of Zane last year in his Halloween costume that turned out great! I felt like this year would be a great time for her to do some family portraits for us.

Two weekends ago we met up with my friend to have some unposed outdoors shots. Well, some were planned poses but not the ordinary poses you see. These are the only sneak peeks that I have seen from the shoot so far. I love them and I cannot wait to see the rest!

Zane just had to have us all make silly gestures!

Our typical craziness!

Our boots.

Fatherly love.

I love my Hubby!

Weekend Recap

I hope you all had a fantastic Monday! Mine was not so much! Mondays suck!

My weekend turned out to be a darn good one! Friday we hung around the house and I got the pleasure of building a truck out of legos. I hate legos. They hurt my feet! We all know that they don't get picked up like they should! That's what Moma is for I reckon!


I got my awesome shoes/loafers whatever you want to call them. they rub my heels a little. Maybe once they get broken in they won't be that bad. I love how they look with my jeans!

Saturday night my best friend and I had a girls night. We went to dinner and then went out and shot pool like old times. It was nice to not chase kids for a evening! lol We always have great conversations and see the strangest people! It never fails! We laughed all night long!

Since Zane stayed with my parents Saturday night, they kept him most of the day Sunday. The hubs and I went out on the loaner Teryx. Why do we have a loaner? Our Teryx4 had a recall and is in the shop being fixed. They gave us this to use until our teryx was done. It was not as good as ours but we still had fun in it. (this one doesn't even have power steering!) We took Willow along with us and she had a great time! Besides all the bug bites I received, I had a great time too!

Show and Tell Monday #2

Wedding Bells Ringing

Are you married? If so when did you get married, and tell us about your special day. If not? How would you describe your dream wedding?
It was a rainy day for an outside wedding in the garden! It was a super magical day once the sun started shining and the wedding was still going to be outside!

Show us some wedding pictures. Either yours or of some that you love.

How about the engagement? Tell us your story. If not engaged, what's your dream proposal?
You can read all about this story here.

Show us your wedding rings or an engagement photo! If not engaged/married ... show us your "dream" ring.

Tell us why you think marriage doesn't work out for so many? What can we do to make things last?

Marriage is something that takes work from both parties. I believe that communication is #1 second to honesty! If you have both of those, everything else comes naturally! Love one another unconditionally and love will last a lifetime! (or I like to think so!)

Meet n Greet

Go ahead and click that button above and then become her friend on GFC! Y'all we are so much alike in so many ways! You will love her as much as I do! She's just getting started with this whole blog gig and I would love it so much if you'd go say Hey! 

Love for Fall Y'all

Go ahead, admit it! We've all had just a little bit of the Fall Fever already this year! Mine started before we even left for Colorado! Once feeling the nice cool breeze there, my fever increased! That's all I can think about now since school is starting back and my hometown is preparing for the Apple Festival.

I love this time of year! Festivals, festival food, the leaves changing color, totally different wardrobe, then comes Halloween and Thanksgiving!

I haven't went out shopping for clothes (for myself) in a while. I've been online shopping lately but never clicking on "checkout".  This morning I found myself finally clicking it. I bought the first outfit I put together. Yes, I bought those silly loafers too. I am actually excited and nervous about them all at the same time. I will let you know how I like them once they come in. It's no news that I LOVE leopard print. If I could find the right one, my car would be! I kid!

Then there is decorating! Decorating with anything to do with fall harvest or Halloween! Halloween parties and bonfires are fun too! I'm hoping that the hubs will hurry up with the 'tree patio' so I can have a fire pit again! We shall see if it happens! We all know how some men can be! (I can say this because almost all of my readers are female.)
Finally this is my most anticipated thing for all of Fall! Twilight's Breaking Dawn Part Two! I cannot wait until November 16th! My best friend and I will meet for a girls night and attend this movie together as we have for all the previous ones! I was told that I might just have to come to Florida to watch it! Who knows! ;)

Me, Myself & I Link- Up

Two, posts in one day! Yay! #dontgetusedtoit
As you know, I am a sucker for a link-up especially the ones that share things about myself!

1) What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
I would open up my own hair salon! I would not do hair, I would manage it! Everday you see salons close. This is usually due to lack of management. Someone needs to hold the fort down and not leave all the stylists hanging!

2) If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?

Take my kid and hubby on as many vacations as we could and every other one, my parents and grandparents would come along! I'd shop for a few things and make sure that everyone I know knew that I loved them! Heck I might even make a billboard that says "Smile, God loves you and Anna does too!" (hey it sounds good!)

3) If a front page news article was written on you, what would the headline be?
Okay so there is one, but it's a bit over the top and my Moma has been reading my blog, I won't share the first one that comes to mind. (if you wanna know, email me, I will share!) So, second runner up is, "Girl with Big Jeep Wins!" Ha! This was too much fun!

4) What is your biggest pet peeve?
1) Smokers. I am a former smoker and I realize how rude I was and now it bothers me. Smoking near an entrance, or near others is NOT NICE! It STINKS! No one wants to smell that shiz! Yes, Moma, you stink too! ha! (maybe she will quit) 2) Drivers who don't use turn signals! Enough said!

5) What is your favorite chick flick movie?
I'm a dork and still love the Twilight Movies! You bet your ass I will be at the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn Part 2! #dontyoudarejudge
