What to do....Can you help?

First of all...I forgot to update you all on the two mean old ladies! I went to see them again last Friday and they were so nice! Ok, not so nice, but this time I didn't get called stupid! They are just snotty old rich ladies who think I'm way beneath them. They are interior designers so I told them that B and I were remodeling our house. It was strange how nice they were after that....Hmm...

So lately I've been really trying to consider where I want my life (career-wise) to go. Being that I'm stuck in Houston indefinitely, I have very limited opportunity to do what I want. So, I'm trying to make the best of it. As of now, I can't really quit my job to pursue anything freelance. We need me to work. Plus, I really want a new car!

So, here is where you guys come in...I know quite a few of you are going back to. What for? How did you decide what you really want to do? What do you do for a living? (I know these are kinda personal questions, so you can be vague. I would just appreciate your thoughts.)

I have thought about going back for several things...A Masters in Journalism or Communications. But I'm not really sure what good that would do me. I've actually even thought about going back to nursing school. I have a friend who is a nurse and makes a great living and has a wonderful schedule. Plus, I'm borderline obsessed with anything like that. I've also thought about getting certified to be a trainer. However, I'm pretty out of shape at the moment...

I'm in a really good job for going back to school. They don't offer tuition reimbursement but I do have a really flexible schedule and a lot of down time at work.

This weekend I'm going to try to get some paint on a few of the walls. My end tables that came in last weekend were not the right ones so I get the replacements on Sunday. Also, one of the chairs I got from Pier One is broken so I am getting a replacement for that this weekend as well. Busy, Busy weekend!!!

Happy Friday, lovelies!

I can't believe I'm admitting this...Plus, my weekend up date

I know I've been away for a while...I think I had food poisoning or something. I was really sick Monday night, Tuesday and yesterday. I couldn't keep anything down until last night! I'm still really tired but feel so much better now that I actually have some food in my belly! So...

Did you guys watch DWTS last night? First, Sean Kingston sucks. I can't stand the kid. BUT...I almost broke down when they did the tribute to Patrick Swayze! I love him! When I was a kid I used to watch Dirty Dancing every day. No joke. Every. Single. Day. It was my after school tradition. It was Kids Incorporated at 3 and then Dirty Dancing while having a tea party and eating watermelon with cool whip until my dad came to pick me up. I even used to the dance at the end. I was Baby and my grandpa was my Johnny. So I loved every second of that tribute last night! 

Here is what I can't believe I'm admitting. We all know how I feel about Miley Cyrus. I don't like her. I have no idea why but she annoys every ounce of me. I don't like  her voice, I think she's entirely too dramatic and a little flakey. But...I love the Party in the USA song! LOVE IT! And last night they played the video and I thought it was Ok, too. For some reason, that song makes me want to dance! 

This weekend was a blast! Friday night my grandpa threw himself a surprise birthday dinner. Yep. That's my grandpa for ya. It was so much fun! The entire family got together at a local Mexican restaurant to have dinner and celebrate his life. 

This is me and my two favorite little girlies. Aliza and Makayla. They wanted to have a slumber party so badly on Friday night but we just couldn't. Makayla is a cheerleader and had a game on Saturday morning and I had tons to do around the house.

So...We had a slumber party on Saturday night. It was so much fun! We've had tons of sleep overs with my boy cousin's but this was the first with the girls. Let me tell you...it was probably the funniest night of my life!


This is the members of The Girls Club. It's very elite and we even have a secret handshake! So what if it changes every time we see each other. It still counts because it's secret!
(don't mind the ginormous belly...I know i need to Shred!)

She said she had never licked the bowl or utensils after making a cake. So I let her. She had it all over her face and in her hair!

Makayla and I made a red velvet cake while we were waiting on Aliza's mommy to drop her off. I cut the cake into big pieces and let the girls decorate their own piece. I don't like icing so I do all I can to avoid putting it on my cakes.


And then we played Spa. No, not makeovers, Spa. How silly is that. This is what they did to me. Aliza took this picture and right when she did, she goes, "Ok, Stevy, Strike a pose and Vogue!" I thought that was the cutest thing I had ever heard so I had to do it! After the make up, we did facials to complete the spa treatment! Haha! 

I  had such a blast with these girls! They are so much fun! Sunday we ran a few errands, swam a bit and watched football. Ok, we all know I didn't watch football. But everyone else in my house did!

I'm already ready for this weekend! I'm getting the invites out for the shower I'm throwing as well as for my housewarming party! I'm so excited! I also think I may stop by Lowes and pick up some paint to do the living room. I'm still at a loss as to what color to paint it. I don't like any of the colors I brought home! Hmm...any ideas? Let me know!

Also, the gorgeous, bride-to-be Heather is having a giveaway..But I won't tell you what it is! You have to go to her blog to find out!

happy Thursday!

P.S. It's definitely fall in Texas today! And I love it!
