Call Me the Randoms Whore...

*I totally just felt dirty writing the word whore in my post title...

*So you all know that I'm trying to lose fat. I'm overweight. Ew. I've never been overweight in my life. Like ever. But anyway, back to my point. Last week I started measuring my foods. Cutting out chocolates, cookies, and more useless crap.  I have lost...wait for it...2 LBS!! Now to none a few of you this may not mean a lot...but to me?! I've finally started losing weight again. Yay!

*Call me a nerd but I totally want a new oven and microwave for above it. Our home came with the basic white appliances. I no longer like--scratch that--I've never liked them...and now? I am hunting for new ones. The only problem is getting the husband on board. I may need to work on this plan a little...

*This cold weather is for the birds. I'm over it already and praying for a warm up soon...

*There are a few blogs that I've been having a blog crush on for awhile. You can check them out here, here, and here.  These girls can blog and they do it good. Hope you puffy heart them as much as I do...

*Getting my hair done this weekend--super excitement going on over here, friends. I'm thinking some long bangs. Not short ones. And I think I'm going to go lighter...which of course will be reason for me to hit up Ulta afterwards. And since Ulta is next door to Target, might as well go there as well.

*I realize the whole Ulta/Target thing has nothing to do with hair...but in my eyes it totally does. Especially if I will be alone. Wow.

*Remember my whole face crisis? What? You don't? Read that and come back.

*Because it is GONE. The meds worked. I swear I heard music the last day of taking my pills. After {2} months my face is gorgeous {haha!} once again.

*I took another pic of Madelyn today. Which will totally be used for Wednesday. I realize you may be going through some Isabella withdrawals. However, all pics I take of her? Are either a) mid-tantrum b) running away from me c) bangsthatimgrowingoutforher are in her eyes and d) mid-tantrum. I will attempt some more. Thinking a mid-tantrum one would be fun...{I kid...sort of...}

*And lastly...I have some Amazon gift cards to spend. I want movies...books...whatever. We have 100's of movies {not kidding folks. Try living on base in Turkey for {2} years. Enough said.}. Suggestions? I love all kinds of movies except sci-fi and boyish movies. For books...really anything. Except anything historical or historicish. Love funny. Love chick lit. Love sad books.

*Puffy heart you all. Have a fabulous Tuesday!

ps-for the record and since this blog is a memory type of thing for my girls. Isabella, honey, you have been awake for hours in your room. You barely slept a wink at naptime--you were totally caught watching your Jack's Big Music Show "ddd". And now you refuse to go to bed. I just heard the "doggie" Santa brought you crying and begging for a treat. Go to sleep now. Please. Love you baby girl.

You have to make the new oven and MW HIS idea...good luck with that.

Going to check out your blog crushes...so fun!

Sophia's Mom said...

You are a randoms whore! But I feel all caught up now, thankx!

ANd DEFINITELY long bangs, NOT short!

Michelle said...

Target & Ulta...two of my happy places. Oh, how I love them both.

And, yes please, for the long bangs. I cut bangs a few months back and am now wearing them to the side because I don't like them anymore. I want them to be long & sweepy.

Random is good...but I think you knew that already. ;)

Good luck on the new appliances. I'd like a new washer & dryer, but the hubs is not falling for it at all. *sigh*

Tantrums...I know it all too well. My six year old son has become a whiney pain in the you-know-what. It gets even worse when my 8 y/o daughter starts, too. Ugh.

short southern momma said...

Love it! I am going to the salon this weekend too to get blonde-ified. Hope your having a great night! XOXO

Kristin said...

I'm right there with. White appliance suite owner...dying for stainless. The hubs isn't on board yet. Boo!

Shell said...

So funny!

You just reminded me that I need to call to make a hair appointment and that I have a gift card to Ulta.

I did a best and worst books that I read last year post last week- you might want to check that out for suggestions. I'm too tired right now to remember the books on it.

Midday Escapades said...

Movies, wow so many to choose from, right? Have you seen Bella or Slumdog Millionaire?

Puffy heart back at ya, my friend. Have a fantastic Tuesday.

Dee said...

YAY for 2 pounds! I call that a victory and would be THRILLED! And can't wait to see Wed picture! :)

Lindsay said...

hehe blog tittle cracked me up! I love random posts! yay for your face o that is so exciting! Can't wait to see the hair.. and we need pictures of all sorts of things :-P

Amy said...

Wow...
I had that same kind of night last night.

blueviolet said...

I love Amazon and you're gonna have a ball spending that!

I'm so glad your face issues have cleared up! You don't have bangs now? It kinda looks like it in your profile pic, but maybe it's just all one length.

I have 3 different colored appliances in my kitchen. :( I hope you get your new ones.:)

I love your random posts! They are always so much fun to read. That little addition you have for Isabella is so funny/cute/sweet...I am sure at the time you were ready for her to hit the hay!

I have a hair appointment on Friday but it is just a trim. I am growing out my hair for my sister's wedding this summer...Hopefully, I will get something cute done for it. I can't wait to see yours! Make sure you post a pic! It totally makes sense that you will need to hit up Ulta and Target...especially since you will be alone! Enjoy you time there!

The Mommyologist said...

You are SO SO SO sweet! And you know I have a blog crush on you too! :)

Congrats on the weight loss girl!! Keep it up!

I MISS Ulta so much. We had it when I lived in Denver but the closest one to me now is an hour away. That place is the greatest!!

Working Mommy said...

I would LOVE a new stove and microwave...our stove needs to be set for 70 degrees above what the recipe requires...

Puffy heart you too!!!

I so appreciate the Ulta/Target moments of our life. Being alone in those stores is pure Mommybliss to me.

I look forward to getting to know you and following your blog and tweets.

Have a wonderful day!

You just have the prettiest dang blog.

Congratulations on your diet success!

Good for you for losing weight!!! The best thing we did when we moved was change our appliances. They were expensive but with no interest it helped a lot.
