Losing Weight is a hard thing...


I have got to finally lose all this weight before I become a big fat blob!  YUCK! 

I have been trying to eat good and started 30 Day Shred.  It is so hard to want to work out when my husband is fine with not working out.  I can find an excuse to get out of it!

Oh where does the time go?

I tried to write a post on Monday for a Weekend Update, but it didn't let me.  Boo!  So I will just write some rambling today!! 

My MIL and I are starting a refurb business called Uniquely R's (the R is for our last name) and we have been getting quite busy crafting and making things pretty! 

So as you can see, busy little working bees.  Note, we both have full time Accounting jobs so this is work done on evenings (late in the evenings) and on the weekends we don't have stuff out of town, which is rare for us!

I am really loving all of it.  Now we are almost ready to sell!!

ItWorks, because it really does!

So I have a tendency to take on alot of outside activities, it is a part of who I am!  I love being on the go all the time, not too much of a home body, and I have a problem saying no like making people happy.  So I was asked by some friends to try ItWorks Wraps, you know that crazy wrap thing.  Well, let me tell you....they are AH-MAZING!  They really do work and I signed up to be a Distributor.  I have been selling for almost a month and it isn't easy.  Man, it is some hard work helping people understand that they TRULY do work!  They are all great products.  We have wraps, defining gel, supplements for weight loss, the greens (I love this product, it gives me so much energy) and supplements for menopause and so much more.  I am working on getting my four loyal customers.  It is totally free to be a loyal customer, you just have to have an autoship for atleast 3 months!  If you are interested, please feel free to visit my website and sign up today!  I would love for everyone to start wrappin!  You can email me any questions or contact me through my website and I will get right back to you!  Now you wanna see some pics to prove it works??  Here you go!

This is after ONE wrap, she still has 3 more in her box of 4!  Loyal customers get a box of 4 for $59.

 This is 3 wraps, one left in box!  Amazing results!
This is after using the fit pack! 

So when can I start wrapping you???

Be Blessed!

Memorial Day Weekend

Well I, like everyone else, am bummed to be back to work after my lovely 3 day weekend!  However, I only have to work 3 days this week and then I have another 3 day weekend....FULL of shopping in Canton, TX for First Monday Trade Days!  If you don't know what it is, google it and make your plans to attend! It's amazballs!!!

And now onto my weekend!

Friday night was spent having dinner with the in-laws then ran out to the Hard Rock to see my sister's family on their pitstop to Branson, MO!  I can't wait until we go at the end of June! YaY!!  We headed home around 9:30 to get ready for bed and pack for our overnight stay!

Saturday morning, we headed to OKC for a day full of baseball and catching up with friends!  It was a beautiful day to spend time seeing my brother-in-law as he worked the camera for the Big12 baseball tourny, of course we had to watch OU vs KState...Go KState!! haha  I kid I kid, no but really I have an extremely hard time rooting for the Cheaters Sooners!  So I just keep my mouth shut, as you all know my better half and his mom are OU Alum.  Atleast they graduated from there! 

Then we headed to Stillwater to spend the night with Little C and Special K!  C was putting on my fake nails and needed help...such a diva I tell ya!

Sunday, we slept in and went to late church.  The message was very moving and I didn't have any eye makeup on when we left.  We are Oklahoma Strong!  Keep praying for the tornado victims and they start the clean-up process.  Then we headed to IHop and had some breakfast/lunch, then did some shopping.  Then we had a cookout at a friend's parents and headed home around 8:30p. 

Monday, we got up and around.  I went to the store and got some food to take to the in-laws for their cookout and Nathan mowed our overgrown from rain lawn.  Finally, the house looks good again!  We ate and enjoyed family time, then home to tidy up the house and catch up on DVR!

Glorious weekend!

Hope you all had a blessed weekend!

Please lift Oklahoma up in your prayers!

As I am sure you have seen, Moore, OK took a very devastating hit from a F4/F5 tornado yesterday afternoon.  The aftermath is unreal and very heartbreaking.  An elementary school was hit hard and many children are missing still.  There is a blessing, over 100 people were rescued overnight and now on to a safe place.  Moore, OK was hit almost just as hard on May 3, 1999 and yesterday's tornado led almost the same path.  That is a very scary situation, some homes will be rebuilt that are only 14 years old.

Living in Oklahoma is a tough situation.  While I love being close to my family and friends, every spring we have to go through a very scary and destructive tornado season.  Oklahoma is a great state, full of caring people that will give you the shirt off their back if you need it, and that is what is so humbling about it.  The Big12 baseball tournment has been hosted in OKC since this weekend and the West Virigina team immediately tried to get to Moore to help with rescue, however, they were turned away.  Did they give up at that point? Nope, they drove to a Wal-Mart and loaded carts full of clothes for children and adults to donate.  Big hearts right there! 

Lord, I ask you to lay your healing hands on every soul in Moore, whether they were injured or have loved ones and friends hurt.  We need your Grace during this time.  Give us the strength to recover and more on with our hearts so hurt.  We ask that the families of the Plaza Towers elementary school be loved on, those children were taken away too soon.  We ask that you give them peace and comfort to know that those kids are in your arms. 

We will get through this and be stronger than ever!  Oklahoma is our HOME!

Be Blessed!

Mid May

Oh wow, I can't believe it is already the middle of May!!  Time sure flies when you are having fun when you are busy as heck!  We officially have every weekend in June booked, including 3 weekends away and Lion King and oh yeah our ONE YEAR Anniversary!  We decided to not go anywhere as it is Father's day weekend and we would like to see our parents, plus we wanted to do two other family planned trips the following two weekends.  To say we are excited about family vacays is an understatement.  We love spending time with everyone, and I truly love being busy on the weekends! 

Work is crazy busy with me being the only accountant now.  I have been working late and barely taking lunches, but they are getting to hire another accountant, so hopefully that will help me out!  I plan to blog every couple days now, even if it is just silly things!  I promise!

Oh my it's been over a month

...since my last post!  I am so sorry!  Life has been so crazy!  These last 9 hours of school really suck bad, and I am hating it more and more every day!  Thank the sweet Lord above, I only have 2.5 weeks left!

We have been so busy with going out of town almost every weekend.  We usually have one weekend a month to stay home, that's when I get to catch up on house stuff.  I kid!  But seriously, this weekend is it for April and I need to do some major spring cleaning.  I need to clean out closets (AGAIN) and down size.  I refuse to move all that crap AGAIN! 

I was hoping to do a weekend update with pics on Monday, but I forgot my cell phone at my sister's house on Saturday morning and we were too far west to turn around and get it.  Can you say media withdrawal?  I felt so naked!  So I didn't snap any pics but next weekend I will for sure!

Better get back to work!  Sorry I have been MIA lately, I promise it will get more regular once I am completely done with school!  Plus, I need to showcase all of my craft projects/new business stuff!!

Weekend Update, birthday update!

So Friday was my birthday, turning 31!  Not that different than 30, so I can live with it.  I am the oldest wiser one of my marriage, haha I kid I kid.  Well no, it's true!  Anyways onto my weekend...

Friday night, we ate a quick dinner at home and then headed to see Darius Rucker at the Hard Rock!  It was awesome!  We saw him last year with Thompson Squared and Lady A, it was glorious!!  The Joint is a smaller venue, and there wasn't a bad seat in the house.  I just wish he would have sang more of his new record!  But he did sing his staples, family traditions (the first country song he fell in love with) and his cover of Wagon Wheel, and last but not least, Purple Rain.  I love that song!  I sang my little heart out and it was great!  I picked up a shirt and we headed home. 

Saturday, my family came into town and we had a taco party!  I love me some tacos!  I had ordered my own birthday cake for me and Amy and it was delish.  Same cake we had at our wedding, I always spoil myself on my birthday!!  Bavarian Cream Cheesecake, yum yum yum!!

Saturday night, the little punk neighborhood kids decided to egg our house.  Let me tell you, I am not happy and will run over their basketball the next time it is in the street.  #pissed

Sunday, we took my sister and her family to the Home and Garden show.  It was fun but my BIL loves to do projects, so it took us forever to get out of the there.  He wanted to get every brochure and was planning his spring break activities. 

After they went home, we headed to my in laws to have birthday dinner, homemade lasagna and homemade Italian Cream cake...YUM

Isn't the stand to die for??  I love cake stands.  I have so many and we don't even eat cake that much!  I need to have a dessert party so I can display them all!!

That's it for me.  Oh and btdubs, I am not liking this daylight savings, I like my sleep!  I need to get back on a good schedule!

To my sister on her birthday!!!

My oldest sister and I are three years and TWO days apart!!  We always had family birthdays together growing up and still do, it's just something we do!  Now, when we were little the birthday girl got a bigger present and then the other 2 would get something small....yeah we don't do that anymore, man I wish we did!  I would get presents all the time, no way, just in December and March! 

Amy and I aren't as close as Jess and I, but Jess and I are only 14 months apart.  We are a pretty close family tho!  We love spending time together and we always have a good time.  Even with 5 little kiddos running wild, we have a great time!  So this weekend, the crew is "East bounding down, loaded up and truckin" their way to T-town to celebrate!  I really am starting to get spoiled with them coming here for holidays, first Christmas, now my birthday!  Last year was the big 30 so it's not a BIG party as it was, but we are having taco bar and a fabulous cake....our wedding cake!  No no no, before you start wondering, I ordered a birthday cake from the same company that did our wedding cake, Ludger's, best cake in town!  So we will enjoy the Bavarian cream cheesecake this weekend and again when they make our fresh topper for our ONE YEAR in June!  Gosh, just three months away!!!

I say all of that to say this, I wish the bestest of birthdays to my big sis Amy!  You are a wonderful women and super at all you do!  I love you and can't wait to see you this weekend!!! 

Happy Birthday Amy!!!

Tuesday already, maybe the week will be faster!

So I wanted to update you on my life.  I went to the Dr on Valentine's Day to find out I have bronchitis and double ear ears didn't even hurt me!  I have only had 1 ear infection and I was 27!  So, our VDay was alittle laid back.  We had already planned on making dinner ourselves and so we just ate and snuggled watching our DVR.  I got Nathan a shirt and some baby foot stuff, along with balloons and he had gotten 14 days of valentine's from me starting on February 1st.  He got me flowers, candy and Darius Rucker tickets.  He is playing at The Joint inside the Hard Rock on my actual birthday!!!  We love him and said we would go anytime he plays in Tulsa.  Love me some Darius.  So this weekend we didn't do much either.  We hung out together on Saturday for our 8th month-a-versary!  We saw Identity Theft, pretty funny!  Sunday, I didn't leave the house.  Thank goodness I haven't missed any work due to this, but I sure am tired at night!

Best get back to work!  Toodles!

Who is tired about being sick??

It's Me, It's Me!

I seriously am over being sick.  Since January started, Nathan or I or both, have been sick every week.  I think we were only not actually sick one weekend, minus Nathan still having his cough from his round of FLU!  I know have a bad cough, sound like a dude, and hack all day and all night long.  My chest hurts from the congestion and I am so doped up on medicine, I can't sleep at night, even with NyQuil.  Those commercials are all lies, lies I tell ya!  So as I sit here sucking on cough drops, trying to make it to my test tonight so I can go home and sleep.  On the up side, I am hoping my husband takes my dinner suggestion!! Pancakes on Fat Tuesday!!!

January Cara Box Reveal

So this is my third month to participate in the Cara Box Exchange, and I love it more and more every month!   If you haven't participated, jump on over to Kaitlyn's blog and join in, trust me, you won't be disappointed!  This month was so much fun.  I was matched up with two lovely ladies this month, it is great to get to know two wonderful ladies in one month!  I was partnered with Anna and Stevie and I was so excited!  I sent my box to Anna, if want to see all her goodies go here, and I received my box from Stevie.  

Stevie did a great job at getting to know me in order to send me a box filled with awesome goodies!!  She learned that I am quite the hair snob, love that.  She sent me a little journal to help with my daily devotions and some headbands to help control the hair while at the gym.  Funny thing, I was just about to buy the same headbands....great minds think alike!!  And now the moment you have been waiting for...PICTURES!  Because guess what, I found my camera!!!
