The good, the bad and the ugly


That pretty much sums up my week. Luckily the good has outweighed the bad, and it’s about to get even better!

Today I leave for the coast with four girlfriends for a scrapbooking getaway, and we’re not coming back until Monday! That's right, four GLORIOUS nights without kids or duties, just lots of girl talk, eating, crafting, shopping and relaxing. I CAN. NOT. WAIT.  

Yesterday, while shopping  for food for my family to eat while I’m away (read: frozen pizza, taquitos, pop tarts, and other nutritious snacks), I stopped in at Plato’s Closet and found these adorable puppies for $6.00. They look like new, are purple and have a slight wedge… a winning combination in my mind.

And even after blowing my Weight Watchers points for the second week in a row while out on our date night last weekend, I was still down another pound at weigh-in last night. Sweet! Slow and steady wins the race right?

All of these things lightened my spirits after my hellacious Tuesday in which I discovered our visa debit card had been compromised and someone in South Korea had gone on a shopping spree with it.

And spent $380.00 of our money.

Instead of going to bible study like I’d planned, my day turned into a mess of back and forth trips between the bank, my house and the police station, waiting for call backs and filling out fraud forms. My nerves were frayed and at one point I may have hung up on my husband out of frustration. 

Oh yes, I rise to the occasion and shine under pressure!

And speaking of the ugly, look who continues to get himself into all sorts of trouble!
That would be Covergirl lashblast mascara. I guess I should be grateful he's watched me put it on enough to know that it goes on your face and not all over your body.

I'll tell you what I am grateful for though: GIRL'S TRIP! Restored money! Cash for the outlet mall! A great guy that's staying home with the kids so I can get away! And NEW SHOES! :)


  1. Oh Blakers, you just couldn't resist huh? LOVE the new shoes and so wish that we were the same size so I could steal them! Have a great time this weekend.
