I am SO glad this week is half way over! To say that it's been a doozie is an understatement...Anyways, here's what I'm loving today:

I'm loving these little gems I found at the grocery store:
I'm sure I'm the last one in the world to know about these but OMG-delish and the perfect snack and even better--they make s'mores a thousand times easier to make!

I'm loving that in a couple of days I'll be here:
Hunting Island State Park

My family is staying there for 2 weeks and while I'd love to stay with them the entire time I would go nuts not being able to see my husband and as much fun as it is over there I like taking showers in a normal shower...not a bath house, and I don't like having to walk to the bath house and risk getting chased by raccoons, yes that happened to me last year...and I don't like "living" in a camper, too cramped, and really I'm not one to "rough it", just not my style. However, I do love to go over there and visit with them, I'm going Sunday, and probably a few times next week just for the day and definitely a few times the 2nd week. Can't wait to relax with my family!

I'm loving that in just 10 days we'll be celebrating this little girls 3rd birthday:
3rd birthday?!?! Seriously, where does the time go?? I have enjoyed watching her grow and being a SAHM to her and not missing any milestones. It's just so crazy to me that she'll be 3! 
This seems just like yesterday!! :(

I'm loving that my husband got a phone call yesterday asking if he wanted to a little bit of work on the side! Woo-hoo for extra money!! 
Wouldn't this be nice?!

And last but certainly not least, I'm loving my latest finds on Pinterest

Y'all go link up and let us know what y'all are loving today!

-So what if I'm not happy (although most people will say that I'm jealous...) that the Gamecocks won the CWS for the 2nd year in a row. I'm NOT a Carolina fan, never have been, and I'll never be one. And people say cheer for a team from your home state...blah, blah, blah...I am a Clemson fan through and through!

-So what if I'm more excited about going to the beach on Saturday than I am celebrating the 4th of July. Don't get me wrong I love my country and I'm very proud to be an American but this pasty girl needs some sun and family time!

-So what if my daughter's birthday party is 10 days away and I haven't sent out all the invitations but I have the cake ordered and know what food I'm preparing.
-So what if I'm uber jealous of my parents and my sister and her family...they're staying at Hunting Island for TWO weeks...but you can bet I'll be shacking up with them for a few nights.

Okay, I have a confession: I have a slight obsession with small girl crush on Taylor Swift. Seriously, the girl does no wrong! So young and so her!!

Weekend Recap

Friday I woke up in Florida. I was there visiting with my friend and her new baby, he's precious by the way!! I left there around 2 and started my 3 hour drive home...which was terrible. Traffic in Jacksonville, had to drive thru a terrible storm, and traffic again in Savannah, finally made it home around 6. Olivia stayed with my parents again Friday night so me and the hubs had some MUCH NEEDED alone time. We went to eat at our local Mexican restaurant and came back home and hung nice! Saturday morning we slept in until 11:30! Again, so nice!! Saturday afternoon I had to meet my parents to get Olivia around 1 and we went grocery shopping, and we came home and had some very much needed family time. We put her down for bed and my in laws came over and we hung out with them for about an hour or so and then we came to bed. Yesterday morning my husband set up Olivia's water slide and we all 3 played on that for about what seemed like 10 hours 3 hours and Olivia ate some lunch and took a 3.5 hour nap, which she never does, but I wasn't arguing the situation. Last night we played with Olivia some more and hung out as a family, so nice. I'm so thankful for a pretty much quiet weekend!

Here are some pictures of my friends baby:

The very jealous big brothers :)
Oh, and just for the record, this was the PERFECT form of birth control for me...waking up every 45 minutes is for the birds.

Myrtle Beach Recap

So, yes I realize I am a few days behind on this recap but whatever, here goes...
Miranda and I were scheduled to leave my house around 9 Friday morning to head to Myrtle Beach. Both of our husbands left Thursday evening around 6:30 so Miranda stayed at my house because I'm a scaredy cat and I was too afraid to stay by myself. So around midnight Miranda decided to try and get some sleep, meanwhile I'm in my bedroom crying my eyeballs out because I missed my husband already packing and making sure I wasn't forgetting anything. Well around 1am I hear a little knock on my door, it was Miranda, she said she couldn't sleep, and I hadn't even thought about sleep so we sat on my bed like a bunch of 12 year old girls at a sleepover staying up past 11pm for the first time. Well after talking for a few minutes we decided to go ahead and leave and we would stay in Charleston and drive the rest of the way the next morning. So off we went, and it was fun for about an hour and a half...Miranda decided to sleep in the back and I was driving. Well I had the air on full blast and I had smoked so many cigarettes just trying to stay awake so I pulled off the interstate to look for a hotel. Every hotel was wayyy too much money for just a couple hours of sleep. So we tried just one more hotel, it was only $60, perfect! Ha, I wish!! You know the saying, you get what you pay for? Case in point...this looked like something out of a murder movie. So we circle the hotel looking for a parking spot and then we both look at each other and decide that we are not gonna stay there. So I walk back in the office and make up a lie ask if I can get my money back, and thank you Jesus he gave it back to me. So I get back in the car and we were off to MB, yet again. We finally arrive at 5:30am and obviously it's too early to check in to the hotel so we park in a Wal-mart parking lot and try and get some sleep, what a joke that was! After laying in the back of my car for a total of 2 5 minutes I get back in the drivers seat and head for the hotel. Thankfully they gave me a parking pass and told us at the earliest we could check in at 11am. So we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast and checked out a few sights then went back to the hotel. It was only 9am so we laid by the pool for a couple of hours and at 11:30 we were finally checked into our room! We freshened up a bit and headed to the pizza place within the hotel for some lunch. After that we went back to the pool and enjoyed daiquiri's and beer. After that we went back up to the room and showered and got ready for dinner. This is only day 1....
Saturday morning we woke up and had some breakfast and went back to the pool for more daiquiri's and beer and sun. Same thing, showered then dinner. Sunday we woke up and we were both very anxious to get home to our hubby's and babies so we left MB around 9:30 and made it home around 1:30. 
All in all it was a very relaxing trip, I'm so glad we had to opportunity to do this and I can't wait for next year! :)


Y'all head over to Miranda's blog! 

She is having a fab giveaway! 

How cute is this makeup bag??
Here is what Miranda has to say about it:
Want your own personalized monogrammed cosmetic bag, or bag to hold whatever you'd like in it.
It's very versatile and it's measurements are 9x6x4 (in inches), it's fully lined and has one interior pocket and it also has a top zipper closure...for people like me who need a cosmetic bag to close!

The above design is the standard pic on The Palm Gifts website but if you win my giveaway you can design your own cosmetic with the choice of six different colors, fuschia, lime green (as shown above), brown, white, black or purple. Your choice of ribbon styles. There are 48 different styles to choose from and of course the personalization can choose one itinial (M), three initials (mGm), or your entire name (Miranda), in your choice of 8 different styles and then lastly your thread color, which is what you want your initials to be monogrammed in your cosmetic bag. There are 14 different colors to choose from.
So y'all go check out her blog! She recently re-did the design and it is so cute!

Adult Truths

I got this in an email this morning and thought I'd share:


1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch three consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from three feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
