*****$500.00 Richer!!!*****

Yesterday, James, his cousin Kristin and I scratched a $20 Super Set For Life and won $1,000.00!! Kristin bought the 1st 2 and we lost, then we split the 3rd one and lost again, I bought the 4th one and lost AGAIN, so, we said we would be sooo sick if someone bought the next one and won. We just at least wanted our money back. So, we bought the 5th one and James started scratching and we were all sooo nervous. James scratched the 1st 4 numbers off and no mathces, but not the amount and he got to the 5th spot and we saw a STAR!! The star means you win ALL 25 PRIZES on the ticket! We were soo nervous to scratch off the amounts, so there is a machine in the store where you scan the ticket and it will tell you the amount you won. We scanned it and it wouldn't tell us the amount, it just said claim at the lottery commission! We knew it was at least over $500.00, we scratched off of the prizes and they were all $40.00. $40.00 x 25= $1,000.00! WHOOP WHOOP! We were sooo excited and decided we were splitting it $500/$500. Since, it is over $500.00 we have to go to Austin to get our picture taken and cash it in there. We are going to make the trip on Monday and I guess eat some lunch while in Austin. I am have never experienced someone win that much. James has won $5,000.00 before, but I wasn't there when he scratched it off. Here is a pic of the winning ticket....

Smooth Away....


I have seen these on tv and have been wanting to try it, but not bad enough to order of the television. Well, at HEB last night I saw them on display and picked it up! It was only $9.97 and curiousity got the best of me. I absolutely HATE shaving and I thought that this could make things better. I got home and was really excited about trying it out. I went into the bathroom and read the directions and away I went. It is painless and really does remove the hair, while also buffing your skin smooth!! Only thing is, is that it takes FOREVER and I just really don't have the time. I would much rather shave bc I get done soo much faster. I do have so say, that I think it is kinda neat, but I think I am going to stick to shaving in the shower. I may still use after I shave to maybe buff my skin :) I didn't try the under arm one, but when I do I will let you know.

Playtime before Bedtime!

We always LOVE to just get the girls and all four of us play and snuggle on our bed before their bedtime. Well, the other night the girls were sitting on our bed and watching some cartoons and I snapped some pics of them. They are sooo cute together and it melts my heart to watch them interact with one another :) Here is a few pics...

Playing bouncy with mommy..

Such a little stinker!! By the way she now has 7 teeth!! 4 on top and 3 on the bottom. They are coming in sooo fast!

Sweet lil' Angel..

Birthday Time!!

It's PaRtY TiMe!! My Birthday is on Sat. the 28th and I am turning the BIG 24!! OMG..I am getting sooo old! We are going to go out on Sat. night and celebrate my brithday. Not too sure what we will be doing yet, but I definately want to go to George's and have some Big-O's!! I am soo excited and can't wait to hang out with all of my AMAZING friends :) I know I will be going to eat some yummy mexican food either Friday or Saturday before we go out. I will post pics of my celebration next week. I really have not even been focusing on my b-day at all! Avery's bday is 5 days after mine and I have been major party planning!! I can't even believe that she is already turning 2!!! We booked a jump party for her, I finally got the invitations out, got the party decorations and I am trying to figure out which cake to order. I LOVE LOVE LOVE planning her party! Her birthday is on the 5th, which is a Thursday and we will probably take her to the zoo bc that is her FAV place to go and then probably to eat and play at Chucky Cheese. Then, her party will be on Saturday. We are planning on having a get together over at our house later that night. The guys are going to play a big card game and we are just going to make margaritas, munch on finger foods and hangout. Soooo much fun to come these next 2 weeks!!! Here is some of Avery's party stuff....

So, I am on my way home from Dallas and thought I would write alittle about what has been going on.

It has been a busy week and a half for us. Last Thursday the 29th was James's B-day and we went out to eat @ Red Lobster bc he LOVES that place and then we came home and me and the girls sang Happy Birthday to him and we had cookie cake. Friday we had The Mexican Margarita night and WOW was is a good time!! I LOVE getting together with friends and being able to let loose! Saturday, I woke up WAY hungover! I had to drive to West and pick up Tiff's Coach cake for her bday bc Zach wasn't able to get away and it was a suprise for her. The rest of the day was just a lazy day! I had to recoop and get to feeling better for the Super bowl/Tiff's 25th b-day party. Sunday we got up and I went and helped Ape decorate the Pifer's house for the party and it turned out super cute. We later went over to the Pifer's and ate some yummy food and watch the Steeler's win the Superbowl!! It was a lot of fun! We took the girls over there and they were sooo good and had a lot fun also!

This past week we just stayed busy with the girls all week.I went and got our taxes done and my mom had surgery and I spent a lot of time helping her. I had a garage sale on Fri and Sat. and I did pretty good :) Sat. we went to the Buechel's for Audree's 1st bday party and it was a lot of fun! She is soo cute and it was fun to watch her open her gifts and dig into her cake. Tiff and Ape jumped in the big bouncy house with Avery and she LOVED it! I couldn't get my child to get out of it! Today, we got up early and came up to Dallas for the day to visit with some family.

This next week will be kinda busy for me too. I am going to be MAJOR job hunting! I love staying at home with the girls, but I really want to work and bring in some extra money. We are going to go to Dallas again this coming weekend for Valentines Day. The girls are going to stay with James's mom and we are going to stay downtown in a hotel and get dressed up and go eat dinner :) I am very excited for it! I am going to get my hair cut and highlighted Friday and I guess go ahead and get the BANGS! I am nervous, but I think I am going to go ahead and do it.

As for my week 3 and 4 weigh ins, I did not gain or lose anything in wk 3 and wk 4 I lost 1 lb. I have not been eating as well or exercising as well. I am starting it fresh again tomorrow.

Avery's bday is in less than a month and I am getting busy on party planning! We are having a jump party and I am starting on the invitations tomorrow. I am also going to get her bday party stuff ordered. I am sooo excited for it!

I have some pics from the past couple of weeks and I will upload later.
