confession time...

I've got a confession!

I've got a small addiction...


I love them. I can't get enough of them right now. They are all I eat right now. 

At my last Dr's appointment with Dr. Hottie he said that I had lost some more weight. He was happy about it. Mom almost told him that she's not surprised that I had lost weight cause all I eat is redvines and cucumbers... She's right, that's all I eat.

So if you noticed the other day with the picture of the girls, that I have a little bit of a nail polish obsession...

Well it just got worse today. I went to ULTA to take a look at the James Bond Skyfall OPI colors.

silly me I ended up getting some, and others.

With the purchase of 3 OPI colors you got a OPI base coat, or top coat free. So... I got 2 of the Skyfall Colors - Moonraker and Casion Royale. I got one from the Hong Kong collection - Suzi Says Feng Shui. and then I got one from the Muppets Collection - Fresh Frog of Bel Air. 

When I got those I chose a base coat, thinking that I had 2 bottles of the top coat at home already. Once I got home I noticed that I had 2 base coats and only 1 top coat. So... I should have gotten a top coat.

The other 5 I got were ULTA polishes. They were part of their $5 for $5. The regular price on them are $6.00 each. SOOOO... I got 4 of those for free basically, at least that's how I justify buying 9 bottles of nail polish. I got a new blue sparkly that is different from the blue sparkly OPI that I have. A bright red, a nude, a dark red, and a pink tinted nude. I don't usually go for reds, or nudes. But you always have to have them in stock when you have to do something simple to your nails.

It was great! sooo excited for the new colors to try out! Shouldn't have spent that much, but I have a little in savings that covered it. And how often do I actually spend money on myself that isn't something I need. Not very often. So yes. I'm excited for my new colors!!!

A day with the girls...

I have three nieces. There is Sis who is 10, Kins who is 08 and little Lizzy is just over a year old. The older 2 live here in AZ, while the youngest live with her parents in Northern, Utah.

Sis and Kins are on fall break right now. Which is WONDERFUL, because they get to come spend the day with us, and spend the night.

They got here before I woke up (if it's before 10.00 am it doesn't exist). They hung out with Gramee and ate breakfast and did all the Gramee stuff. After I got up we did the nail thing!

We got to play with my all of my colors. It was awesome! Kinsey painted each finger a different color and sis painted them one color, and then took the polish off, and painted them a lighter color. I don't think she actually ever finished.

After coloring our nails all pretty we watched Brave, then Harriet the Spy (had to introduce them to one of my favorite books as a kid), and then Spy Kids 2. In all of this we had lunch of pancakes, dinner of chili mac, copious amounts of Red Vines and Jolly Ranchers, along with Sierra Mist. 

It was a great day with the girls. Can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow.

My Puppies...

Some little things about my girls

My puppies like to play with bigger puppies. Well, Violet likes to play with her cousin Chloe. Lils on the other hand try's to ignore her as much as possible. She's really the only one Violet will play with. She's basically afraid of every other dog.

Lils likes to sleep on my pillows  when I'm not in bed yet. I put her to bed, sometimes a hour or so before I actually go, and always find her resting on top of my pile of pillows.

Violet likes to eat my feet. It's not a mean thing I guess. It's one of the ways she likes to get you to play with her. I guess when Erin left us she had to move onto someone else to bite. So she chose me. It's funny sometimes.

They like to sleep together. Or I should say, Violet likes to sleep with her sister. Preferably on top of her, but Lils won't go for that.

They like watching out the back door for stuff. Right now it is pigeons getting water from the waterfall.  They hate those birds!

Violet think's she's a princess, and won't lay on the floor unless there is a pillow there. Even on the couch she prefers to lay on one of the pillows.

Lils make a GREAT pillow. And a nice little heater. She's the best nap partner ever!

They both hate baths. Lil's will just sit and stare at you and then ignore you for a while afterwards. Violet is afraid of water. She has been as long as we have had her. 

Violet always wants to play when dad lays down and wants to take his weekend nap. ALWAYS! She brings him a kong and sits there and whines. It's quite annoying, and I have to figure out ways for her to leave him alone.

So, there you go. Those are my babies. Totally crazy... but they are mine. And I love them very much.

12 Days of Christmas

Remember how yesterday I was saying that I wanted to be a part of this Christmas swap.
Well guess what?



I'm so excited. This is going to be so much fun. 

I love giving gifts!

I can't wait to start shopping and start making.

So, I want to be a part of a swap. But I don't think I'll be able to be part of this first one.

You have to have an active blog, and I soooo have not been active. So guess what. I'm becoming active again. I am making it a goal to post at least once a week, if not more.

BUT if you have an active blog, or non active blog, and you want to check out a great blog, go see my friend Miss Angie at-


Love to all,

Long time...

It has been a long time since I've blogged.

A lot has happened.

Utah has come and gone. I went to the appointment at UofU in August, and found out that my insurance does not cover that hospital for lung transplants. It is covered for other transplants, just not lungs right now.

so we're trying for St. Joes here in Phoenix.

Birthdays have come and gone.

Ian turned 12

Kennadee turned 1

I'm doing okay. The colder weather isn't so fun, and i'm very thankful to be in Arizona, but at times my body still aches cause it's 60 outside... (I know, I know... there are lots of you out there that live in way below that. I don't know how you can handle that.)

Trying to get more stuff done with AzSG's... Went to 2 different craft fairs. Made some money, wish I had made more. But started some advertising on another blog, and will start writing on this one, and the AzSG's blog more.

Hope all is well!
