We're Moving!!!

Today is the day we start moving! Jas and I are really excited. We have been packing for 3 days now! And we hope to be totally moved into our new house by Sunday. Lots of family and friends are going to help the 2 of us move tomorrow. But we took today and Monday off. We are starting early.
It really shouldn't be that bad. We aren't moving terribly far. And we aren't taking much of our furniture. Jas and I decided to either give it away.....and sell some of it. We sold 2 large pieces. Most of the other stuff got split between my little sis, my cousin, and his little sis. It is nice to pass our "hand-me-down" furniture to the next souls.
Today is all about the doggies. We are moving 4 dogs and need to prepthe house and the yard. I'm guessing they will be in the new house by dinner time. My dad and pop (Jas' dad) built us 2 large dog houses for the yard. We have a good fence in the back. But we are going to make a smaller area for the dogs. You know, for when people come over to visit. We also have to put in some doggie doors! Let's see how handy I can be.
Peeps I got to go! Jas is ready for breakfast. We are going to Denny's. Then on to our house!!! We got to make it safe for our babies and our first night in "Our House!" :)

I'm Going to be an Auntie Again

We had a family dinner at my parents' house tonight. It was something that I have been looking forward to it. This week has been a little frustrating to say the least. My mom's food is to die for! I've missed seeing my big bro and little sis.....and my niece and nephew! So I was pumped! Jas was also happy. My big bro and Jas were all into some video game.

After dinner.....hamburgers, potato salad, salads, hotdogs, chips and dip, BBQ beans, etc.....we sat around my parents' backyard. The kids were running around with the dogs and the adults were stuffed! My mom brings out fruit salad and chocolate cake. Just as everyone gets comfy with their little sis and her man had an announcement. My little sis is 4 months preggers! Yay!!!

Jas and I had been talking about this last week. My little sis is usually slim and trim. She had packed on a few pounds. I had even asked Jas if her boobies were looking bigger. He said he hadn't noticed. But we were kinda thinking she was preggers. We were just waiting for the confirmation.

Everyone is so excited. My mom dropped her chocolate cake all over the ground. But we were all cheers and laughter. I am so excited for another little one running around. The kicker to all of little sis is due on Halloween! How funny is that? But we are all excited! And I can't wait to meet the new baby! :)

My Addiction to MAC

Since September 13, 2007 MAC has had a free standing store here. It was a fabulous day! Don't get me wrong, I like shopping at Dillard's. But this is a free standing MAC store! Peeps I luv the place! It is like a candy store for women. No lie! Now 8 months later, it pains me to pass by and not stop. But I am restraining. Jas and I have set our wedding date.....and we only have 11 months to save up. We also just got a house. MAC has pretty much been off limits for the last year. With a few exceptions.....
For the grand opening, my mom took me, my little sis, and my sis-in-law. Mom really spoiled us. It was dad's treat! She bought each one of us $250 worth of makeup and brushes!!! Thanks mom and dad! Why? I really don't know. But they did it. It was a gift for being dad's gals. Mom also bought herself the entire brush line and some makeup. Can you tell where I get it from? haha It's not like my parents are rich or anything. It was just a splurge for us girlies. Something that I know they had saved up for.
For Christmas, my sis and I decided to take each other shopping for our gifts. We treated each other to a couple of things at MAC. OK, so it was like buying our own makeup. But we had so much fun! My big bro even managed to buy me 3 lipglosses for Christmas. Luv ya bro!
Then Jas spoiled me with some MAC treats for Valentine's day! Yes, he did! That man is definitely a keeper! He got me 2 eyeshadow brushes that I have been wanting, 1 blush brush, 2 lipsticks, 2 lipglosses, 2 blushes, 3 eyeshadows and 4 pigments! I could not believe it! So much better than roses! I got him some new golf clubs that he wanted.
But I had still not really shopped for myself. MAC I luv you! But why can't I shop at your gorgeous store? I've only been there 2X's since it opened 8 months ago! I don't know.....but I hadn't been able to do some shopping for myself. And I was kinda sad about that. I love that I have gotten MAC as gifts, but I had not shopped for myself. Tonight peeps, my man did it again! After dinner, we took a small trip to Uptown. We were supposed to be looking for something for Jas. All of a sudden, we were in the beautiful MAC store.
I think Jas realized that the MAC store is really important to me. As important as his golf. We went in, and the man was amazing! He bought me 2 eyeshadow pallets, 3 eyeshadows (Brule, Naked Lunch, and Beauty Marked) 2 lipglosses (Underage and Viva Glam) and 1 blush (Dollface)! It was just fun to get to shop. To buy what I wanted because we could. I played and played and played some more. Then I happily left MAC with the beautiful black bag in one hand and Jas' hand in the other! :)

Officially A Graduate

It only took 10 and on for me to do it. But I graduated from college today! Yay! I got 2 degrees.....I got a BA in education and one in business. Isn't that a weird combination? What's next? I don't know! I really don't. I have been working at the bank part time since Moni had to take a leave. Her mom has been having heart trouble, and she has been staying home and at the hospital with her. I could stay there and move up. But I already decided to get my MBA. I don't exactly know what I am going to do. But it seems like a good move.
Tonight, Jason, my parents, lots of my family, his family, and friends all went out to dinner. We decided on Quarter's. I couldn't help myself! Grams really like the ribs too! We were all covered in BBQ sauce! It was nice to celebrate with my family and friends. This is really a good time for me and Jas too! It means we can really start building a good life for ourselves.
After dinner most of my family left. Jas and I stayed with lots of our friends and some family. We had some drinks and dessert. But we were mostly just goofy. Having a good time and enjoying some damn good company!
Jas just went to get my graduation present. He said it is hiding. I am really excited! Probably because he has been so happy for me. Jas is so supportive of everything I do. And I couldn't ask for a better man. He was so proud today at my graduation! :)

Happy Mom's Day

It's Mother's Day! Happy day mom!!! My mom is the best. Really she is! I love her for everything she has every done for me. There are times when I wonder how I have made it through life. Then I remember my mom was there beside me.
When I was little, I wanted to be just like her. I would sit on the floor and watch her put her makeup on. I always wanted to put lipstick on! And once in a while, she would surprise me. I would get just a hint of pink lipstick. I thought I was so special. Especially when I got to play in her heels!
As I grew, it was more of the unnoticed things that I wanted to do. The way mom always makes a special breakfast on Saturday mornings. Or leaves little notes for dad in his truck. And the way she has always made me, big bro, and little sis feel so special.
I love my mom so much. I hope she realizes just how much I love her. I tell her all the time.....but I really mean it in the deepest part of my heart. Mom you are the best mom anyone in the world could dream of! :)

Cinco de Mayo!!!

Today is Cinco de Mayo!!! Not really an American holiday.....not really a Mexican holiday. But a fun holiday around Burque!
This past weekend Jas and I went to a few fiestas in Burque. Just to get into the mood of things. We ate way too much and danced to lots of great music. Tonight we decided to go to Garduno's for dinner. We are meeting Jas' brother and his wife, and my little sister and her boyfriend. Nothing too crazy! Just to share dinner and to have a few drinks. Maybe they will have mariachis too! I know it is a Monday, but I can hope! :)

My Blog!!!

Welcome to my blog. Don't know what I am going to write here. But I was motivated by Miss Littlebit's blog. I figured this would be a good place to write the mess floating thru my brain. Share it with people who want to know about my life. I can also manage to document planning a wedding. Jason and I are trying to come up with the date. MLB and NASCAR schedules are not helping with that. We want to get married in warm weather. I guess we just have to see what happens next. For now, we are just adjusting to our new house. Come back if you want to follow Sara from Burque. :)
