Wouldn't you like to know?

Hey guys!

I failed this week at pretty much everything.  Blogging, working out, eating right etc. Let me just give you this little bit of advice... Don't try to: start a slim down, quit diet coke cold turkey (migraines!), plan a bridal shower, look at 3 houses, work full time, ride the crimson wave, figure out clothing for a photo shoot, exercise and pull your back out all at the same time. I'm sure you wanted to know all that. It  just hasn't been my best week yall! So, now I'll  try to update you on life minus all this craziness.

Wonderful Wednesday hasn't been super wonderful, however, it's the only night this week we have successfully been home before 6 and ate dinner before 8 9 or 10 o'clock at night. I can't even imagine having children at this moment. Life would be nuts. Maybe I need a new plan on how to tackle all this? I'm just totally exhausted after work. Then get a 2nd wind (right about now) Oh glory. But really I shouldn't complain because I'm still breathing and have a roof over my head/clothes and food.

Anywho, this weekend may possibly rock my face off. We are throwing my best good friend Brenda a bridal shower and I am stoked to celebrate her marriage to Mr. T... hehe, she will kill me for that one! Love you Brenda Boo!! Below is her invite I created. I will post pics of the shower after this weekend :)

So that is one reason this weekend will be fun. Another reason is, we are finally getting our engagement pictures taken! No big deal, we just waited 1/2 a year to do them! oh well, better late than never. I seriously cannot WAIT to do them. I have some great props and ideas in my head but the location will probably get me all giddy/teary eyed. Can you guess where they are going to be taken? Leave me a guess in the comments and I just may tell you! Bribery to get more comments/views to the blog? nah... on another note,  I'm very anxious about my makeup/hair/wardrobe. I just am not good at doing those things right all at once. we will see what happens! Stay tuned :)

On to the exercise portion of the day. Its HUMPS day so do something good for ya booty! Try this Tone It Up workout... I still gotta go do mine!! 

Also, I got my paint on a few weekends ago. I had a craft itch... 
Finished product COMING SOON!

Truthful Thursday

“You may start out doing something that is not the “thing” you were created to do. It may only be the thing that leads you to the thing you were created to do. Don’t stop at where you are as if it were the Destination, when in reality it may be the Transportation that brings you into that thing you were created to do.”  T.D. Jakes

Weekend get away & Motivational Monday!

Hey hey! I was out this weekend visting the future in-laws and treasure hunting for the wedding! So, no saturday or sunday posts happened. Plus, my phone decided it was time for summer and dived into some water to cool off. I felt so lost without my oxygen iPhone, so nothing got updated. Sorry! Anyway, see all the fun we had below :)

Tempting Tuesday

T and I have been craving some shrimp... ok I'm lying, it was me craving the shrimp, but T is easy to persuade when it comes to food! He loves everything! So, for Tempting Tuesday here is what we made for dinner

Click below for how we made the sauce. We also decided to do a stir fry instead of kabobs.

Hawaiian Shrimp 

All the ingredients

add all together
Mix it up!

heat it till it boils
give chopping job to fiance

all the goodies


Roody enjoyed it as well!

Successfully full!
After, we took a walk and acted like children for about 15 mins on the swing set. It was too cold to stay any longer!! 

haha this one cracks me up!
                                                              creepy much?!

Where did the warm weather go? Anyone want to share other recipes for shrimp?
