Swappin' the Glitz!

Raven over at A Momma's Desires and Pacifiers and Lindsey at The Bargain Blonde hosted an amazing blog swap for Christmas! It was all about anything and everything SHINEY!!!! I got paired up with the amazing Lisa and she sent me the best package!!

The LOOT!!! It includes earrings, nail polish, lip gloss (I LOVE lip gloss!), an awesome sparkly pen that is partially covered (oops!), and a super cute necklace that I've worn several times already!!

         Lip gloss and chapstick!!! There is actually one missing, it's in the bottom of my Mary Poppins bag! But let me tell you that red color right HOT! makes me feel like a hot mama! :)
 UGH! I wish it wasn't sideways!!! Who doesn't LOVE stilletos?!?! Especially glitter stilletos?! This went on my tree as soon as I opened the package!
 I tried to get a picture of the super cute necklace but it was hard! Trust me though, it's awesome!

Thank you SO MUCH Lisa!!!!

New kid on the block!

Yesterday one of my bestie's Melissa (and of course daddy Adam and big sister Briley) had Aubrey Ann Stauffer!!! Melissa was induced starting at about 8am and no real progress untill I believe 145ish when they broke her water at 3cm....she went from 3cm to 10cm in less than an hour and only pushed for 5 minutes!!! Aubrey was born at I believe 2:38pm on November 29th 2011 :) :) Melissa had no time for drugs since she progressed so fast! She definitely wanted them though but I am SOOOO proud of her for doing it without!

I just LOVE little Aubrey and am so happy to have baby Carlie's bff here! She is just perfect! Here are a couple pics from when I got to meet her last night!

holding the newest princess for the first time!!

Beautiful Aubrey Ann Stauffer 6lb 6oz 18.5 inches long! :)

Disclaimer!!! I know I'm off slightly on the times that everything happened but I know I'm VERY close!!

~Maggie May~

My mom text me and asked me to come over tonight once I got home from my work/my appointments...I kind of thought that was weird since she'd usually just text me or call or even email if she wanted a check (for insurance or phone since we still have joint) but I was like ok whatever! So I went....She asked me about my doctor's appointment and doted on how cute my new hairdo is blah blah blah....then she had to tell me something....dun dun dun.....

She got all teary eyed which of course makes me teary eyed which is unusual for me now that I'm pregnant I'm kind of a cold hearted bitch! (normally I'm SUPER sensitive). Anyway my Maggie May, Maggot the Faggot (I know HORRIBLE but whatev), Maggie Moo, or most of the time just Sisser died late last night at about 11pm :( She was MY dog, MINE all MINE  I didn't share her with anyone for the first 7 years of her life (we got her when I was about 12), she was my sister and my best friend, she helped me through breakups and all the trials and tribulations of middle school and high school and most traumatic my parents divorce right before my senior year of high school. After I left for college and my mom sold our house and moved into a new one that didn't have a fence at all we gave her to our family friends Missy, Roger, Emily, and Seth. Maggie LOVED it with them and they loved having her just as much! She had new kids to play with woohoo! And now she had TWO families to spoil her! They had her for about 6 or 7 years, but she was still MY dog and everytime we saw each other it was like we were never apart! She was just an amazing puppy!

I realize that she was WAY passed her time, boxers typically only live till 10 or 11 and she was 14!!! I knew this time would come soon, actually I am SO surprised it hadn't already come, but it still sucks and I'm still very upset. Partly maybe because I feel a little guilty....I almost feel like as soon as I bought this house with Tyler we should have taken her back, but really she had a new family she was with so it would've been bad for everyone! Maybe I should've been there in her final days, but that doesn't make sense b/c I can't just sit around with her and wait for her to die, it probably would've been a lot harder on all of us to see her like that!

Now I'm just rambling b/c my mind is going 1000 miles a minute! I'll attach a pic of her I have on this computer! She was so precious! My little Maggie May with her bear (the only stuffed object she didn't tear up!)  : )

RIP baby girl! You will be missed greatly and always loved!

Creating a Beauty Monster!

Yesterday Melissa and I went to go get pedicures to try to get NoName to come out, apparently there are pressure points in the feet and ankles that CAN induce labor. We took Miss Briley with us so she could have a little big girl time before baby sister gets here. She has never had a mani or a pedi (she is only almost 5 so thats not that weird!) so Melissa got her both! She LOOOOVED them!!! especially the part of the pedicure where they massage your feet and legs with lotion! She got a pretty sparkly blue on her toenails, with flowers on her big toes and a sparkly pink on her fingernails with flowers (and diamonds!) on her thumb nails. I think we definitely created a little monster!! It was SO CUTE though!!! Here are just a couple not very good cell phone pics!

                                                               SO EXCITED!!!!!

                      you can barely see here but she's trying to be super still to get her nails painted!

oh BTW the foot massage didn't work to get NoName out either! Melissa is getting an hour massage (her first!) today to try to help her along another way! :)

Last night (Friday the 18th) Melissa, Amanda, and I went to go see Breaking Dawn Part 1 at the AMC Fork and Screen for opening night! We were so excited and had been waiting a year for it to come out! (Just like every other Twilight fan!). We didn't get to pick our (assigned) seats so we were in the very front at the very end :( boo!

We got sat down about 30ish minutes before the previews started and ordered our food. I got Thai Bang shrimp tacos, they were amazing!!!! We also got crab rangoon dip which was SO GOOD! and I was super daring and got a Coke (I try to limit my caffiene as much as possible b/c of baby Carlie!). Anyway we were just eating and talking, minding our own business and the theater lady came up and asked for our tickets, we all pulled out our ticket stubs which looked like this

Can you see that?!?!?! They say they are for SATURDAY THE 19TH!!!!!! We had the right seats just the wrong day! I about died!!! There were 4 ladies that were supposed to sit there and were deciding on if they wanted those seats or not (ya know since they were so crappy). Thank God they decided to just go to the regular theater and not the Fork and Screen! We got to stay!!! WOOHOOO!!!! There is one plus to having crappy seats! No one else wants them!! haha!

Anyway after our little scare we got to enjoy the movie and it was AMAZING! We can't wait till part 2 comes out in a year!! After the movie Melissa got REALLY sick in the bathroom :( we thought she was going into labor! But no dice, baby NoName is still not here :( hopefully soon though! I can't wait to meet her and for her to have a name!!!

Tyler just got back from hunting yesterday (Tuesday), he goes out to Western Kansas with our good friend Rick and his family and friends. He typically goes every year but b/c of work he wasn't able to go the last 2 years :( He LOVES it and they have a great time! Especially when they can get a lot of birds!! The limit is 4 birds per day, they hunt for 3 days so the max he could get would be 12, but because it was SO HOT and SO DRY out there this summer there just wasn't a ton of birdies around. He ended up with 6, which I actually think is plenty for us!!

I got home from work last night and was going to get in the fridge to get Ty a glass of milk for dinner (to go with our Chipotle of course!) and this is what I see......

Yep thats pheasant legs, breasts and feet with nails!!!! I about puked!!! I was like ummmmm could you not at least COVER IT?!!?!? shortly after though he finish cleaning them (taking the feet off and getting the bullets out) and put them in the freezer!

Time for another birthday!!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a great day! It started at work when the guys took care of my birthday maddness there. I FULLY expected to go in to work to nothing done for my bday b/c the girls had been MIA all week and they are the ones who put it all together usually. Well I was SO WRONG! I walked in to my desk decorated (w/ red and blue balloons), seafood salsa (my FAVORITE dip), Salsa Verde, deer sausage, and drinks, and THEN my friend Jaime brought me an amazing piece of Hersey's chocolate cheesecake from the cheesecake factory and my other friends Claude and Derrick got me a whole Cheesecake Factory red velvet cheesecake!

Then yesterday on my actual birthday Melissa, Briley, and I went to the Maple Leaf Festival in Baldwin. I LOVE the Maple Leaf! Lots of good food and awesome crafts! We had a sliced apple with AMAZING homemade warm carmel! YUM-O! :) I unfortuneately didn't find any crafts or decorations I really liked, I was kind of bummed about that! Then Tyler took me to dinner at Olive Garden and to babies-r-us to get Carlie's carseat!!!

Here are a few pics from my festivites :)

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Partly eaten Hersey's cheesecake

Carlie's new carseat!!!

After all that it was time for my Grandma Lila's big 77th birthday!!! Which is today. I picked Adam up in Lawrence and we were on our way to Hutch by 8am! We had a big party for her at her rehab center and she was SO EXCITED! It was really cute to see how excited she was, almost like a little kid! Uncle Monte and mom made pulled pork sandwiches and we had all the sides! Mom made white cupcakes (b/c thats what Grandma wanted!) and we had ice cream. It was great to see the family and my grandma! She's getting a lot better, still has off days but all in all she's improving! Here is the only picture I got of her birthday on my phone at least!

Lots of Movement!! :) :)

Miss Carlie finally kicked for her daddy last night!! I think I was more excited than he was! I asked him if it was weird or if he thought it was cool, his response was "Well I knew it would happen sometime, you just have to be patient!" UMMM buddy thats what I've been telling you for 3 weeks! EVERYTIME she would be kicking hard enough to feel/see her on the outside he would try to feel her and she would stop! He would only keep his hand there for like a minute(b/c he's inpatient) and she would start again once his hand was gone!! Anyway she's very active now! I LOVE IT! and can't wait to meet her! Only about 17 weeks left!!! :)

My BFF Stephanie got married this Saturday! It was an amazingly beautiful wedding at an awesome venue and Stephie looked gorgeous! I'm SO happy for them and so happy that Britt has come into her life, and of course into mine because of that. He is an amazing guy and SO GOOD to her! I LOVE watching them interact, he is so attentive to her, that makes me extremely happy and proud of her that she found someone just as amazing as she is to spend her life with :)

Here are just a couple pics of Steph that I took with my phone! I have a few more on my camera and am waiting for people to upload on facebook so I can steal even more! :)

                                 All dressed up, with nowhere to go  and all ready to be Mrs. Nelson:)

Looking gorgeous even while brushing with a whisp brush! :)

If questionaire!

I "stole" this from another blog, that "borrowed" it from even another blog! :)

IF I were to get pregnant again... well I don't think you can be pregnant AGAIN when you already are so I'd probably milk it for what it's worth and go on talk shows and be in magazines and newspapers for money :)

IF I could have any job in the world I would of course be a stay at home mommy and wife!

IF I had a day to myself I would get my hair and nails done and get a massage, after of course sleeping till about 10ish, then go shopping with someone else's money!

IF I could get married all over again I'd have a destination wedding with only the people that matter most to us, close family and only very close friends

IF I could live anywhere in the US I'd live wherever my family is, but I'd like to move them all to either California, Texas or the East Coast :)

IF bebe were a boy/girl what their name would be, we don't know yet who is in there but a girl is Carlie NoneYoDangBusiness Fredricks and for a boy it will be Maxwell Tyler Fredricks :)

IF I could have any talent in the world um probably an amazing singer so I could duet with Taylor Swift

IF you met me in real life you wouldn't believe how much of a sexy mama I am! jk jk! um I'm fairly quiet at first (like for 5 minutes), then fairly crazy and goofy!

IF I could go back to school and get a different degree I'd get my degree! In dental hygiene

IF money were not an object I would pay off ALL debt, and shop :)

IF I could meet one celebrity why Taylor Swift of course!

IF I could only shop at one store for the rest of my life it'd be Probably The Gap, though I'm not a HUGE fan of clothes my size I LOVE their baby and kids clothes!

IF we get another pet I would want a wittle baby boxer!

IF I could go on a trip RIGHT NOW, I'd go to Hawaii or Vegas

IF I had to chose between a house cleaner and a personal chef, I'd pick the house cleaner fo shizzle! can I put that on my baby registry?! ha!

IF I had the option of plastic surgery I'd get boooobies of course! after kids of course :)

10 years later....

As an American I will NEVER forget where I was when I heard about the terrorists attacks in NYC, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. Mrs. Brummits English class, Sophomore year, instead of the typical Chanel One News coming on the regular news with the horrible coverage came on, it came on just in time for the 2nd plane to hit the 2nd tower. It was very devastating to watch and still is when they show the coverage over and over again like they have been the last couple of days.

This video and song is one of my favorite songs about this horrible event, it's by Daryl Worley, "Have You Forgotten?"

I got these for $35 I think and they are normally like $80ish I think! Anyway SO comfortable! and CUUUUUTE! Yay bebe you don't have to be squished anymore!! :)

Coffee or anything similar (which I guess is good since I'm not supposed to have it!)

I'm WAAAAAY behind! But on Memorial Day 2011 I got a positive test!!! WOOHOOO!!!!! I went to the doctor Amy for my pregnancy confirm appointment and she gave me a ton of "reading" material and scheduled me for my next appointment on June 29th! I will have a bunch of blood work done, and get to see the heartbeat or heartbeats :) yep! there could very possibly be 2!! Even better! I'm SO EXCITED!!! We told my mom on Wednesday and Tyler's dad and mom yesterday! They were all very excited! :) We'll tell my dad soon, once he gets back from California! So far my due date is either Feb. 10th or 11th, but we'll know more at the big ultrasound! :) I'm so excited to be pregnant with one of my best friends! Her baby will only be a couple months older than ours so they will be BFFs! :)

I <3 bows!! BIG BOWS! For little girls and babies! They are typically called "Over the Top" or "Texas Sized" bows. I can't WAIT till all the little girls in my life are born so they can wear them! I have been a bow making fool lately and so has my BFF Stephanie! I'm going to attempt to load some of my favorite bow pics! I think I've made a total of 10-15ish.
