1. We are finally settled into our house.
2. We will be hosting Thanksgiving
3. We are pregnant again. Ok so you ask again? Well I had a miscarrage a couple of months ago and not being one to give up, we are pregnant again. We goto the Dr in December to confirm. Right now I'm probably at 5 1/2weeks. I'm hoping that this time we will have a better out come. So my due date is around the end of July. I'm only having a little nauseau but no vomitting. Hubs says I need to tell my sister. I should but I'm waiting. We will see how things go. I'm still aprehensive since the M/C.
So that's the big news. I will try to blog more.

We finally moved into our new house and its huge and needs some work. I have painted and cleaned the main areas. I redid the kitchen cabinets (paint) and since the builder builds them on sight they're not the normal (standard) size. Because when I was unpacking and putting my expandable silverwar holder into the drawer the drawer was 1/2 an inch short! I couldn't believe it. I was so mad. So my husband had to rework the drawer and remove the expander. Totally upset. It fit in my old kitchen. I hate custom cabinetry and I have throughout my house.
I'm in the process of removing the wallpaper upper boarder in the Master Bath. I hate wall paper with a passion. I have to get it removed before we rip up the carpet and tile. Which brings me to my next rant: Why would someone put carpet in a bathroom? Why? That's gross. So we will be removing the carpet and the tile to replace it all with new tile. I'm debating if I should put tile into the closet and get rid of the nasty carpet. Then I worry about resale value and if I would like tile in my closet. Any suggestions? (I probably won't get a response since I haven't posted in awhile) Oh well.
I have other big new but I don't want to post it yet.

I'm excited also because my nieces are coming to visit also. We're going to have so much fun. I can hardly wait.
Sorry I haven't updated in awhile, I've been super busy. But I do have a TAT story for next week.

I went back to my home state to see my family and my adorable niece and nephew. We had a great time and I miss them all.
Thursday, May 21, 2009
I love what people will post. Go check it out!
Here goes nothing.
It was my 23rd birthday and Christmas Eve. I had finished up with the family stuff and was headed to the bar. After arguing with my mom about wanting to go to the bar and her saying its Christmas Eve you shouldn't be going to the bar. Thank God for my Dad that told her its her birthday let her go to the bar. My dad rocks!
So I go to the popular bar in town that everyone frequents. Of course I go by myself since a lot of my friends are out of town. Obvious reasons. Since I frequent this bar a lot I know a lot of the staff so it was no big deal showing up by yourself. BTW I drove there too! Great combination.
Any who, I'm drinking and low and behold my best friend shows up with his roommates. I start hanging out with them and drinking and doing shots. It was awesome.
Then I feel that feeling, ya know the one, when you know everything is going to come back up. I lean under the pub table and vomit! Where I remember seeing a piece of shrimp from dinner. Then I excuse myself and go into the bathroom and throw up again. I know I'm sexy! I know the someone saw me do this but I wasn't cut off or kicked out. How awesome is that!
I rinse out my mouth go back out and start drinking some more and pretend nothing happened.
Since my best friend and his roomies took a cab to the bar they drove my car and me back to their place! Where I don't remember much but woke up early the next morning grabbed McDonald's and headed home to spend Christmas in bed.
Granted I can't drink like this anymore. Once I vomit I'm done drinking.

This happened to me last week. Hubs and I are planning a trip back to the Midwest and I've been emailing and FB all of the "important" people that we are coming. By important I mean the ones that I really want to see and hang out with.
My old boss and I still have contact with each other and we're pretty good friends. We should be we shared an office for 3 years. I told him that we were planning on coming back and he said he was going to pick us up at the airport. (its 3 hrs away) kinda weird but whatev. Anyway Hubs wanted me to email old boss and make sure that he was for sure going to pick us up.
I told Hubs yeah I'll email him plus I have to tell him about the crazy dream I had too. (I'm known for these outrageous and very detailed dreams)
So I email old boss (I'm waiting for the moment I type old balls or something) and I tell him about the dream. Basically it was riding in his truck but I was driving and he was in the back. No big deal.
Old boss emails back. I wish you were in the back with me we'd have fun.
WTF... Weird...I think not. I in no way, ewww, ewww, ewww!
What do you say to that? Thank god it was over email and I could just not respond from it.
Thanks Tova for keeping TAT

My Mob name is blank "the gun" blank. I think its quite funny.
Then I went to another site where you can find your mob nickname. Mine is The Butcher. My husbands is The Executioner.
I would link the websites back to this post but I already closed websites so if you want to know your Mob stuff you will have to do it the old fashioned way and google it.
Sorry I'm bored and lazy.
Tuesday, May 5, 2009
I'm looking forward to the end of the month when I get to see my nieces and nephews. Oh how I miss seeing them! I will be busy traveling East and then headed back home and then on to the Mid-west. My dogs will be missing us too!
I think I should be entitled to go shopping for my travels. I already have an idea of what I want to buy. Now I have to convince my husband that I need all the things I want. I will need all the luck I can get!

Anyway, I had bought a bunch of new panties from Victoria Secret and the new ones have the tag imprinted on the fabric instead of the tag that sticks out. Which is awesome. So one day I'm in the bathroom and I look at my panties and think Oh my gosh I have my panties on backwards. But no I didn't they were thongs. How do you put thongs on backwards and not realize it. No Victoria Secret has put the tag imprint on the inside front on the panties. I had a freak out moment and then it was gone.
I put my panties on inside out a lot. I don't do this intentionally I guess I'm not really paying attention. So last night after running and what not I was changing to go to bed. (No I didn't shower afterwards b/c I was being very lazy and didn't feel like it) So I look down at my panties while I'm peeing and notice that the VS on the front of them is VS and not SV. The VS is against my body and not on the outside like it should be. So I go into the other room and tell my husband
ME: Guess what I did again?
Me: point at my panties
Hubs: Laughing: Not again, you have a problem
Me: I know why can't I put my panties on the right way
Hubs: That's your TAT post.
So then we're laying in bed and he says
Hubs: I can't believe you didn't switch them to the right way
Me: Yea well I've already worn them the wrong way no point in switching now.
I have put my panties on inside out like 5 times. I guess I get confused? I dunno. But it's pretty awkward!

Ok this happened to me about 9 years ago.
I was out of town one weekend and on Monday morning when I was getting ready to head home my mom called and told me that Grandpa was really sick and she was heading out to go see him. She told me that it would be a good idea to head to where he lived to see him too. I was 4 hours out from where my Grandpa lived. He was in an assisted living center and had been having some issues with his health. I arrived at the assisted living place and my mom and soon to be stepdad (which I will call my stepdad for easier story telling sake) where already there sitting by his bed. My Grandpa was sleeping. We sat there and talked and by early evening I decided to head home with my Stepdad. My mom stayed behind so that she could be with him. I hugged my Grandpa goodbye and left. When we got to the car my Stepdad said that my Grandpa opened his eyes and knew it was me hugging him. I called my sister on the way home and we planned on coming back the next day to see my Grandpa.
When I got home I was so exhausted from the emotionally draining day. I was home alone. I went to bed that night and slept with my door open since I was alone. I remember waking up at 5:15am and seeing a tall and broad dark shadow in the door way. I jumped out of bed and turned on every light upstairs in the house. I went and sat on my mom's bed and cried. All I could think about was my Grandpa, he was 6'3" with broad shoulders. I knew the shadow was my Grandpa. At about 5:30am my mom called and told me that Grandpa passed away 15minutes ago. She said that she was sleeping in the chair next to his bed and felt the blanket slip off her shoulder and felt as if someone was touching her shoulder. She woke up and grabbed her stethoscope and went to my Grandpa's bedside to listen to his heart and lungs. She heard him take a deep breath and then he was gone. This was at 5:15am. She said that she called my Stepdad and he told her he was up because he woke up at 5:15am.
I told my mom that was very freaky but I'm glad that I got to see him yesterday and I'm glad that he got to see me. I then called my sister and brother and told them the news.
I think it was great that he came to say goodbye.

My hubby gets home from work early and will usually walk the dogs while he's waiting on me to get home. He gets home from work and lets the dogs out to do their business. He goes inside and goes upstairs and changes into his work out clothes so he can walk the dogs. He comes back down stairs and out to the garage to grab the dogs' leashes and hook the dogs up to go for the walk. That's when he looks down and realizes he's in his boxer shorts not his gym shorts. So let me recap he has his t-shirt on socks and shoes and boxer shorts.
I know it would have been more awkward had he ended up walking outside where people would see him. But I think its awkward enough. Love ya honey!
Thanks Tova for Totally Awkward Tuesdays!

Anyway I was thinking about how cool it would be to learn to be a stunt driver. I thought of this as I'm heading down the 4 lane highway and thinking if I had to do a U-turn it would be a lot cooler if I hit the e-brake and cranked the wheel. Oh how great to watch the driver's faces around me. Only problem is my luck I would end up rolling the car cuz I was driving too fast. Then I would have to explain to Hubby why I rolled the car. Being bored and wanting to see what would happen is not a good excuse. I still think it would be damn cool.
The other scenario I thought of was having people in the car with me that didn't know I was a stunt driver and doing the e-brake parallel park thing. That would be totally kick ass awesome. I know the looks on their faces would be priceless!
I can't wait for Tova's Totally Awkward Tuesday next week cuz I have a hilarious story that involves the Hubby. Its great. The ladies I work with were brought to tears!
Have a good weekend!

I don't think I can write a whole lot about why I want the Pro Caulk and all its good qualities and why everyone should own it. I just think its so amazing.
So on to more important things like....
I was thinking about this the other day.
In the South people give gifts to their garbage man, postal worker, dry cleaners, lawn person...etc and usually during the Holidays. I remember around Christmas I was listening to the radio and they were talking about such things like leaving a case of beer next to your garbage can for the garbage man. Stuff like that. They were taking a poll if people still do that something extra for these employees. Basically "tip" the service worker. Well being from the North I have never heard of people tipping the garbage man. I have heard of the postman, hairdresser, waiter, you know that kind of normal stuff.
I know our garbage men up North didn't work as hard as they do down here because it was an automated garbage loader. Usually they never got out of the truck. So if you left them a case of beer they might end up leaving it on the curb. Here the garbage men manually dump the garbage. Would you really tip someone that does the job automatedly? (new word)
Oh and Nada the Octomom is going to have a reality show on finding a b/f. What person in their right mind would want to walk into all that EXTRA baggage?
Yes, I'm a single mom of 14 kids. Wanna date me?
I like kids and all but 14? What guy wants to walk into that situation. I have single parent friends that find it hard enough to date someone when there's 1 or 2 kids. The show sounds like a train wreck waiting to happen.
I like reality shows but I'm not obsessed. I probably won't be watching this one. No take that back. I definately won't be watching. I already don't watch DWTS, Idol, Bachelor, Biggest Loser..But I do watch the ones on Bravo. Housewives, Millionaire matchmaker, Top Chef, but I only religiously watch Top Chef.
My Husband whenever I cook something asks "What do you think the Top Chef judges would say about this dish?"
Its quite cute.
Ok back to work.

The dogs slept on my half of the bed last night so about every 2 hours I woke up trying to get comfortable and fall back asleep. By 5am the cars started to pass by and wake me up. Between the snoozing of the alarm and the cars passing by I got a little extra sleep.
I am happy b/c its my short day today. I have a Doctor's appointment this afternoon so I get to leave work early. Yay! Right now all I can think about is sleep. I want to crawl back into my bed and go to sleep.
I even thought about calling in to work today so that I could sleep later. But I didn't. Hopefully this week isn't too terribly boring!

1. Our wedding was expensive and we had no money saved for it. Thank God our parents chipped in and helped out. Plus we had a lot of contacts that also donated and helped out. I did the flowers with help from my bridesmaids, sister-in-law and mother-in-law. Since I'm not a big cake person we ordered one from the local grocery store. I wasn't about to drop $1,000 on cake! In all the wedding turned out perfect.
2. We are in the process of saving up for a down payment on a house and I got to thinking should I start a site where people can donate money towards my dream house. But then I thought its too much hassle and extra work that I don't think I have time for. But if I want something to happen I have to put my mind to it. Now I'm on the fence about this. Plus I don't deal with mean people well. I usually retaliate. What do you think?

This happened to me on Monday. Here's some back story. I went shopping this weekend and bought some cute new tops. I wore one of the new tops to work on Monday. Its a little flowy and took some getting used to. Let's just say if the wind is blowing right the shirt would blow up and show everyone my bra. Awesome!
So I'm at the Doctor's office Monday afternoon and I had my umbrella in my purse so the umbrella handle was sticking out of my purse. The nurse calls me back to room me and I stand up and grab my purse and go to put it on my shoulder when the umbrella handle gets caught in my flowy shirt and I expose the receptionist. Very Awesome! Luckily he didn't see anything and wasn't paying attention. I shot this weird look at the nurse but she wasn't paying attention either. I guess I had the best awkward moment, Nobody noticed except me.

Happy Friday everyone and have a good weekend. I know I will.
Friday, March 20, 2009
Here's the back story...
My ex boyfriend and I dated for 2 1/2 years, we lived together and he always referred to me as the wife when we would go out. Usually he was drunk and I would have to put up with him. He had this problem of blacking out when he was drinking. Anyway we broke up and after about 4 months we didn't talk at all. I ended up moving like 10 blocks away but we never ran into each other.
Here's the story..
Hubby and I met and started dating, you know how it goes, guy meets girl, guy likes girl, guy buys girl a ring. yada yada yada.
Our wedding day is here and most things go off without a hitch. So wedding is over and we arrive at the hotel that our reception is at. The hotel has 2 ballrooms. We have the smaller ballroom because the big ballroom was booked for another wedding. BTW we got married at the height of wedding season. I'm standing in the hotel lobby trying to figure out why the priest locked the photographer out of the church. (whole nother story) I look over and see the ex boyfriends uncle in a tux. I'm like why would he be here? Oh the other wedding. It takes a second and it dawns on me that the other wedding is my ex boyfriends! Yes you heard right my ex and I got married on the same day and had our receptions at the same place! Which I should have known b/c 3 weeks before I saw them listed in the paper under people who have applied for marriage licenses. I showed my sister and said what if they're getting married on the same day? She said that wouldn't happen.
GUESS WHAT IT DID!!!!
Ya know this might be the awkward freaky story.
So back to the story,
I ask the wedding coordinator at the hotel if the other couple was ex boyfriend. She says yes why. I proceed to tell her that he's my ex boyfriend. In her 20 years of coordinating weddings for the hotel she has never had that happen. Crazy huh.
We end up going up stairs and toasting and I go to go to the bathroom and as I'm coming out of the bathroom I see ex boyfriend. I congratulate him and hug him and go back to my party. Well as I sit down Hubby says he needs to go to the bathroom, I tell him he should wait cuz you know who is in there.
All of ex boyfriends friends came over and said hello and chatted (they were all drunk but whatever) but I never saw his new wife.
To this day I don't know what she looks like but I know I married up.

Right now I have a raspy voice. Its kinda sexy, if that kinda thing could be sexy.
I'm back at work and its really nice outside, so its making it really hard to work. I have also been looking at houses in our area to buy. We're saving up our down payment b/c I don't want to be house poor. I don't want to spend all our savings on a house. So lately we have been living poor so that future us can live happy. I found this one house that looks awesome! Unfortunately the paint on the inside is a bit too old fashioned for me. As in mauve walls aren't my style. I think its funny how the listing agent spins the bad parts of a home. Like "charming" home, meaning small. Or priced so that future owners can do upgrades, so its a fixer upper. I have already been the fixer-upper route and I'm going to pass. Hubby and I have agreed that the only fixing up we will do is paint and even that might be pushing it. See the old house I painted every room and when we went to sell it I repainted a couple of rooms. I'm sick of painting. Hubby sucks at painting. I think b/c he chooses to. He knows that if he does a crappy job at something I won't make him do it ever again. "Smart"thing he learned from his dad. I don't have the patients to teach him proper painting techniques. The other issue is trying to paint when you have 2 dogs that have to follow you everywhere you go. In the old house, one of our dogs stepped in the paint tray and then walked through the house. It was fun cleaning that up when you have new carpet. Luckily the paint was the same color as the carpet so not as noticeable.

I haven't been to Chicago since I was 9, I'm not counting making a connecting flight or taking someone to the airport. The hotel we are staying at is right on the parade route too. Its going to be a cold but good time. I'm ok with it being cold cuz this weekend is supposed to be pretty crappy here in TX.
Other issues.....I know this is going to sound bad but I don't care.
I told my husband that I want to have a baby before my sister in law has #3. We'll guess who will be trying for a new baby. HINT not me.
I know that it sounds stupid. Hubby and I have talked about having children and we both want them but now isn't a good time. I know if we didn't move we probably would have a child right now. But the moving thing and getting settled and all had delayed some plans. I know that I shouldn't plan when I want to have kids around someone else and I'm by no means thinking of getting pregnant any time soon either. I guess I'm indifferent about it. We have a lot going on right now and throwing a baby into the mix would not be a good thing. I guess I didn't think that they would be trying anytime soon. I guess its the I wanted to be the one who had the next kid not her. Oh well.
We'll I hope everyone has a good weekend

The other thing I've been craving is carrot cake. I'm not sure why but it sounds supper yummy. Maybe its the cream cheese frosting. Maybe I could be the new spokes person for Philadelphia cream cheese? I dunno what the deal is.

This happened the other day and I thought it was too funny that I didn't care how awkward it was..
My co-workers and I always walk over to the gas station and hang out. Its a mini work break and a chance to get some fresh air. The gas station has these mini basketballs that I always am attracted to. I always am playing with them and dribbling them and what not.
I asked my co-worker if she wanted to see my trick that I can do. (I'm going to call her Mary) She said is it this and shoves the basketball under her shirt so she looked like she was pregnant. Of course by this point we are laughing. I say yeah its that and shove the b-ball under my shirt and start dancing so that the ball is moving up and down. It was kinda like the drunk girl dance but without the arms waving in the air. I was trying to get the ball to move up and down.
Now we are laughing really hard and not paying attention to the people around us. Then Mary takes the b-ball and stuffs it into the top part of her shirt. At this moment some random guy looks at us like what is going on over there and what's wrong with these two ladies? Of course we see him giving us this questionable weird look and continue with the fun of the b-ball. Then I take the b-ball and stuff it into the top of my shirt.
At this point Dan our other co-worker says, "What are you two doing?"
I respond with: Playing with the mini b-balls
He says: Put it in the center of your shirt so it looks like you have one boob.
I take the b-ball out of my shirt b/c Mary and I are laughing so hard that we are almost crying.
Mary is talking about that guy that was looking at us with the confused look and how he probably thinks there is something seriously wrong with us. I tell her look at the ceiling who ever watches the security camera video will probably be thinking what in the world are these two doing. Then Dan tells us just watch out it will be on youtube in a week.
That's my awkward story. Thanks Tova!

How come 5 gum doesn't lose flavor? I usually get sick of chewing it and spit it out after about an hour but it still has flavor.
Oh and I love to spit gum out of the car window. I don't know why but I think its really cool and fun.
I'm very happy today for obvious reasons....ITS THURSDAY!!!!! I'm excited to watch The Office tonight.
What would one do if Michael was really their boss. I think I would go nuts or die from laughing all the time. I do know that I would have great stories for Totally Awkward Tuesdays though.
Sorry I had to answer some emails.
Drumming my fingers is fun. I often try to do a different random beat when I do it but I always end up doing the same format, pointer finger, middle finger, ring finger, pinky.
Valentines day is Saturday I would tell what I plan on getting my Hubby but he reads this so I won't. Haha fooled ya!!
This blog is letting him really know what he married', the crazy girl. J/k. Maybe.
ANyway I hate Valentines day! I think its dumb. But I still want presents for it. But nothing overboard. This guy this morning on the radio was spending over $500 on his wife of 1year! That's crazy. He got her a watch and a necklace.
I think this post just went way too random so I'm going to stop now and leave you with these thoughts.

Ya know how when you're drinking and decide that the person you're drinking with is really awesome and you can tell anything. Well that's what was happening.
I guess after a lot of drinks I feel like sharing my real feelings for people. It doesn't matter if I've known you for 5minutes or 5 years. And when I share my feelings there's no b/s, I hold nothing back. Well Sara proceeds to tell me that when she first met me (2yrs ago) she thought I was a bitch. I tell her no big deal a lot of people think that cuz I also hold nothing back and am brutally honest and I'm a take charge kind of girl.
I figure since we're sharing our feelings I tell her that I thought she was fat.
Ok I know, I know, how could I say that!
I get that I don't like you very much anymore look and that wasn't cool. I get the feeling that its time for Hubby and me to leave.
Jon and Hubby both look at us like is there going to be a cat fight.
Of course I appologized. But you know I didn't get mad about being called a bitch. We were sharing.
BTW Hubby informed me that when I first met Sara that was at her all time skinniest.
Ok I'm rude. Thanks!

The only reason I heard about this website is because TEXAS was the only state that showed the commercial during the Super Bowl. Apparently this website is very big internationally and Texas is the one state that has the most clients compared to all the other states. How sad is that??
BTW...I'm sure you can figure out what the website is called...I'm not promoting it..
I guess by me talking about it I might be promoting it and I realize that but I'm still not for it!
Here's the commercial.
But today the awkward thing happened, so here goes.....
I had to drop off some paper work at another builing so on my way back to my office I decided to stop at Jack in the Box, for a smoothie. Its the only thing that I will order from there. I pull up to the drive thru line but its pretty backed up so I decide to go inside. I back into a parking spot and go inside. I come out 5 minutes later with my delicious smoothie. Not really paying attention I press the unlock button on the key fob and walk up to my car. I get next to the car and notice how exceptionally nice the car looks and then I think did I park this close? I look up and notice my car parked 2 spaces down. Duh-oh.
I then look around to make sure no one saw me and hurry up and get into my car and drive off.
I'm back at work telling my co-workers the story when we look out the window and there's this guy who is going to get into the driver's side of his SUV but opens the back door instead. He then realizes what he did gets out and gets in the driver's door. But not before he looked around to see if anyone saw what he did.
Sunday, February 1, 2009
Let me just say AWESOME commercial.
So Hubby looks at me laughs and says "You would do that wouldn't you?"
Let me just say
YES, I would!

One of my findings of living in Texas is that everyone LOVES Dr. Pepper. Like so much so that its the only Soda they will drink, well next to Coca-Cola. If a restaurant doesn't have Dr. Pepper and only Pepsi products its not good. I find it amusing. So the other day at lunch my co-workers and I had the Dr. Pepper discussion. Some of them like Diet Dr. Pepper and some like regular Dr. Pepper. Here are some fun facts:
- It was invented in Waco, TX (on a side not whenever I think of Waco, TX, I automatically think of David Koresh and the cult. I always think of it as Wacko instead of Waco)
- Corporate office is in Plano, TX
- You're supposed to have one at 10, 2, and 4
- You can make "Hot Dr. Pepper" which is warmed up Dr. Pepper with a lemon slice.
- It doesn't contain prune juice (so if you feel regular after drinking Dr. Pepper its probably another reason)
- The contents are certified Kosher
Just some fun facts about Dr. Pepper.
BTW I don't really drink Soda and when I do I usually have Diet Coke or Sprite. Its b/c caffene gives me migraines. I usually have 1 Soda a week.

I called my blog Up Rooted because I moved a lot as a child like 10 times and I recently moved to Texas. So Up Rooted is the name.
When you move some place new you learn new things like:
People in Texas don't understand what merge means. I do because I got in trouble in drivers ed for just following the road and not signaling and not looking to see if there were any other cars. Here in Texas the people that are merging think that the people already in the lane have to make room for you and they should slow down. Not the case. I even had one lady driving right next to me looking at me like I was in her lane. She was almost driving off the road. So I might have a bit of roadrage.
Anyway hope you enjoy!
