Drywall!

Yep! That's right! Our house has drywall now! How cool is that? I still can't get over how fast the progress is going! Here are some pictures of the drywall to keep you updated!

I hope you have an amazing week! :)

Getting to Know You!


1. If you accidentally nick a car in a parking lot..Do you leave a note or do you get the heck out of there?
Honestly, it would depend on the damage. If I took a chunk out of the other car, then I would probably leave a note because I would feel terrible about it later. If I just nicked it, then I would definitely get the heck out of there! Haha.

2. Love your body or plastic surgery?
I used to want a nose job...but I have learned to love my nose. I'm definitely not to the point where I've learned to love my body yet though.

3. What about your favorite blog(s) continues to drive you back?
The blog carnivals. I love doing weekly themed posts! What's not fun about them?

4. What percent of your blog is BS just to make your life seem more interesting than it really is?
Honestly, everything you see on my blog is me. I have no reason to BS anything.

5. If you had to give up one type of meat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Any red meat. I don't eat a lot of it now, but I do have it from time to time. I. LOVE. CHICKEN. Haha. :)

6. How often to you eat out?
Too much. I need to start experimenting in the kitchen more often. We spend way to much money eating out!

7. Skinny jeans or boot cut jeans?
Both. It depends on the look I'm going for. I have bigger legs, so I don't wear skinny jeans often...but I do have a couple pairs of "curvy skinny" jeans that I absolutely love because they aren't tight.

8. If you caught your spouse cheating would you forgive, divorce, or plan your kill?
I would like to think that I would be rational and forgive because that is the way I have been raised...but I've never been in that situation before so I can't say for sure. Besides, I have the most amazing husband in the whole world, and I trust him.

Fill in the Blank Friday on Sunday




{one}  The most adventurous thing I've ever done is        the Slingshot bungee thing in Panama City, FL. It looks literally like a slingshot, and you are strapped into this ball and then they shoot you up into the air. Scary, but oohhhh so fun    !




{two}  If I were a pair of shoes I  would be      a pair of brightly colored stilettos   .


{three}  My preferred mode of digital communication is        texting. I would much rather text someone than talk on the phone. I mean I don't have anything against talking on the phone...but texting is easier to me  .


{four}  I feel happiest when       I am home with my husband or around our sweet friends !


{five}  A little dream I have for my life is     to have a cute little house with a cute little yard and two kiddos running around !


{six}  The one modern convenience I could NOT do without is       my iPhone. After having one, I will never be able to go back to a regular cell phone. There just simply isn't anything it won't do  !


{seven}  Music, movies, TV or books:  if I could only choose one to enjoy I would pick       Movies. Especially romantic comedies      .

Getting to Know You!


{one} If you could host a Reality TV show, which one would it be?
Probably the Bachelor or the Bachelorette. So much drama. Haha!

{two} Do you put your seatbelt on before or after you start the car?
Usually after I start the car. I always put it on when I drive, but I'll admit, when I get in the car with someone else in the passenger seat, I forget to put it on sometimes. Haha.

{three} Shave or hair removal cream?
Shave! Hair removal cream tends to irritate my skin.

{four} What's your favorite feature in a house?
The kitchen. If you know me, you are probably thinking, "seriously?" Haha. I love kitchens but I don't cook hardly ever.

{five} What is your favorite "Fall" scent?
Usually something with cinnamon in it.

{six} What tv show are you looking forward to seeing the most this Fall??
Grey's Anatomy!!!

{seven} Personal Shopper or Personal Chef?
Both. I hate shopping because I always end up with the same things, so it would be nice to have someone pick out my clothes for me. And I don't cook often, so a personal chef would be awesome!

{eight} What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of "Fall"?
Cool weather. I hate being hot! Ugh.

Now go link up over at Keely's!

Fill in the Blank Friday Lateeeee.....

Sorry for slacking...haha. This week's Fill in the Blank Friday was about tv! Here we go!


1.  My favorite current TV show is       honestly, I don't really have a favorite tv show right now, because Grey's Anatomy isn't on...but...I did see the move The Switch last night and absolutely LOVED it! Probably my 2nd favorite movie now.

2.  The TV character I can relate to most is      nobody really.   .

3.  My life is like (fill in with TV show and why)....       why is it so hard to answer these questions this week ?

4.  My all time favorite TV show is       Grey's Anatomy. I can't get enough  .

5.  A TV show that is ridiculously stupid, but I continue to watch is     the Bachelor Pad. Yeah, I admit I am liking it .

6.  My favorite TV couple is       do Edward and Bella count? :)

7.  One TV episode I could watch over and over again is       the last season finale of Grey's Anatomy. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! I don't think there has ever been a Grey's episode like that before  !

Fill in the Blank Friday
 
This week's Fill in the Blank Friday is in honor of Lauren's birthday! 
 
1.  Birthdays are:       fun because you get lots of cake and presents of course!

2.  My favorite birthday memory was      my 15th birthday when I got my car. It was a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. I sat in it all night listening to the radio, and the battery died   .

3.  A birthday tradition I (or my family) has is       nothing really  .

4.  If I had to choose one birthday meal to eat for the rest of my birthdays hence forward, I would choose       mexican of course  .

5.  My birthday is on     November 30th .

6.  If I could take a birthday trip I would go       Hawaii  .

7.  The best gift I've ever received for my birthday was      my car when I was 15. What more could a 15 year old girl want  ?

It's time for another Tuesday Three with Miss JLA! I missed last weeks, so I'm going to do both last week's, and today's...all in one post! Awesome huh? Haha. Okay. Here I go!

*************************************
{last week}
List three of your pet peeves around the house:

{one} No dirty dishes in the sink! I can't stand it when one has a dishwasher, yet they fail to put their dishes in it after they eat something. I mean seriously? How hard is it to open the door, and sit the plate in the rack? Haha.

{two} Coffee ring in the middle of a spoon. After stirring your coffee, please rinse spoon and put in dishwasher (see above), instead of sitting un-rinsed spoon on countertop for coffee ring to dry, causing me to scrub spoon.

{three} Kitchen counters must be clean. Who wants to walk into a house, and see crap all over the kitchen counters? Not me. By crap, I mean clutter. Clutter drives me crazy. I'm not a neat freak by any means, but please pick up your clutter. Haha. ;)
*************************************
♥♥♥♥♥
*************************************

{this week}
Share three things, that put a smile on your face & that make you happy.

{one} I know y'all have heard this a million times...but I am super excited that our house has finally been started! By the end of this week, we will have a roof!

{two} I am really excited that I will get my new iPhone at the end of this month! I gave in and ordered the black one since the white one was delayed again, but I got a super cute turquoise case to go on it, so it's all good!

{three} My husband is a 5th grade teacher and he started back to school yesterday. He said his kids are awesome, and that makes me happy because he got lucky and has well behaved kids! Now, yesterday was only the first day of school so it might be different as the year goes on, haha, but let's hope this year is stress free for him! :)
