Violets and Reds, Reds and Violets

July 31, 2013

Do you color your hair? Well I do! Although I am horrible at keeping it up. That is something I really need to work on since the color only costs me about $6. 

Ever since I went to Paul Mitchell, I have been using PM Shines. It's a demi permanent color with no ammonia, so I don't feel bad for using it every 5 weeks. 

I use PM Shines in Amethyst. I was going to try Ruby Slippers but decided to wait.

Okay I bet you are wondering where my "after" pic is.... Well I suck and don't have one. LOL So stay tuned. 

What do you use?

Monday already???

July 29, 2013

I swear... Weekends go so fast!!! Actually, time in general goes so fast these days! 

Here is my weekend in a few pics...

Friday morning the kids and I went to Encinitas with my parents for a family trip to the chiropractor. We are party animals!!! 

Then Sunday morning T and I took Tessie the Tahoe to Riverside and said our final goodbyes. My heart is broken! I loved my Tahoe so much!!!! Just couldn't do the gas mileage any longer. 

After sniffling my way back on the freeway, we decided to stop at T's parents for a quick "hi". This is the cute little fairy garden she made with her niece. How freaking cute is that??? Boogs will love it!

In front of T's parent's house.

Then today we hung out at the pool. 

Hope you had a good weekend!!!

Movie Weekend

July 22, 2013

This past weekend was nice and relaxing. T and I rented 3 movies and just vegged. I'm so behind on new movies, i hadn't seen anything. Not to mention the weather has been so miserable!!! It was nice to sit in the cool a/c. 

The first movie we watched was called The 7 Psychopaths with Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, and Colin Farrell. Sooooo good! A very dark comedy and pretty bloody but hilarious. If dark comedy is your thing, I highly recommend it. 

Second movie we watched was The Snitch with my lover muffin The Rock. Such a great and intense movie. Definitely a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat... If you are a parent, you find it so hard to not to sympathize with the main character. 

The last movie we got was called The Standup Guys. This had Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin. Excellent movie. Another darkish comedy but so good!!!! Obviously I am a huge Christopher Walken fan! 

So there is my couch potato weekend all wrapped up and reviewed =) 
What did you do? 


Furball Friday

I seriously brushed enough hair off of Hunter to make a clone.... And then I
Chased her with the hose =) 

My big ol Moose girl 

Summer Dayz

Yesterday we went to visit my parents for a little bit, watch my dad progress with his physical therapy and drop off some stuff I had borrowed. 

Then the kids and I headed to the pool for some relaxation and to keep them out of the house (keep them from fighting). 

The Mountain Fire is still looking so horrible. It breaks my heart not only because of the obvious reasons but because I love Idyllwild so much. I used to camp there as a Girl Scout. 

Still only 15% contained.

What are your plans for the weekend???

TV Shmeevy

July 16, 2013

Ok, I used to watch a lot of night time TV last year, but since I moved in February, I don't watch much at all. I've pretty much given up on my beloved Hawaii Five-O, Big Brother, True Blood and Dexter (Dexter only because I don't have Showtime anymore). There are really only a few things that I cannot go without...

Longmire- Longmire is by far my favorite TV show!!!! It's on A&E, Monday nights at 10. Walt Longmire is the Sheriff for Absaroka County in Wyoming. If you know me, you know that I love all that is Wyoming and Montana!!!! My dream is to live in a tiny town with one stop light and cattle crossing through town square. So this show is perfect for me. Not to mention Walt and Deputy Branch are pretty hunky (yep, I said hunky)!

Walt-Brooding Sheriff with secrets.

Deputy Vic Moretti- foul mouthed bad ass from Philly.

Deputy Branch- local & ex rodeo hotty gunning for Walt's job.

Henry Standing Bear- Walt's longtime best friend, Red Pony bar owner & go between between the dept and Cheyenne Nation. 

If you haven't watched this, I recommend you check it out... Great show!!!!

UNDER THE DOME- Now this is a new one. It's only on maybe the 4th or 5th episode. I guess it is based on a book written by Stephen King, so it's that type of show. Basically a small town finds itself under an invisible dome and they are quickly running out of resources and now everyone is starting to panic. I'm definitely hooked on this one. I think it is going to be one of those one season shows though. 

Recognize this hottie??? He was in She's Out of My League

Yes it's the girl from Secret Circle (if you were a nerd like me and watched that).

Oh and ever since I have been with T, I've been forced to watch NASCAR. I really have found myself liking it and even have picked my own driver. T's a diehard Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan. I really studied and watched these guys interact in interviews and after much consideration.... I chose Matt Kenseth!!! He seems like such a humble guy and a great family man. That's actually something really cool about NASCAR that I've never seen in watching other sports... It's very family oriented. I love that the racers stand out there with their spouses and children before every race. 

Shhh, don't tell T that I have the NASCAR app. He may start thinking that I like watching these guys drive in circles (I know they don't just drive in circles).

My other two shows are Chicago Fire and Vampire Diaries which are on the off season right now. 

What shows are you addicted to? 


Hospital Rooms and Beautiful Beaches

July 15, 2013

Hi! How was everyone's weekend? All relaxed????

My Friday was the day from Hell! Although it didn't start that way... Or end that way. So I guess I really shouldn't complain too much.

The kids and I started our day early Friday morning. They had their 5 and 7 year check ups at 8:30. Yep that's right "AM", as in before noon. Ughhhh, I hate mornings. Anyway, physicals went very well, the kids are growing nicely and healthily (is that even a word?). Beaks got 5 shots and didn't even shed a tear. Well maybe a tear but he didn't cry. So proud of my little guy!!!

We ventured back home and since I was going to buy my brother's car we decided that he would drive the hour here to drop it off, then I'd take him in our dad's truck (that ive been driving this past week) back to our parent's house so that I could drop that off and pick up my Tahoe that's been sitting there for the past week... Then take dear brother home, the drive all the way back home. That way all the cars were where they were supposed to be. Did you actually follow that? I think I confused myself.

My cute new toaster. So much better on gas!!!!

On the way from my house to our parent's house, I got a text from my mom saying that she was taking my dad to the ER.  For those of you who don't know, my dad was diagnosed with mesothelioma about 2 months ago and just had a major surgery called a thoracotomy. He's been healing well at home and finally making some real progress when he broke out in a weird rash all over his back and chest. He took a benedryl to relieve the itching and hopefully get rid if the rash when his blood pressure dropped wayyyy low. So his doctor from UCLA recommended that he go to the ER.

So, In the meantime, the kids, my brother and I drop dad's truck off at his house, get in my Tahoe, and drive to the hospital where our parents are and luckily is on the way to my brother's house.

We get to the hospital and they hAve admitted our dad to hydrate him and watch his blood pressure which is now 81/32 (uh hello, are you even alive with that kind of blood pressure?). We all traipse up to his room to see him and check on how he and our mom are doing. Dad is in good spirits and mom is still holding up ridiculously well on little to no sleep. Turns out that the doctor's think that Dad got a rash from the generic version of his meds and then with the combo of his diuretic, potassium, antibiotic and the benedryl, his blood pressure just went way down. S they wanted to observe him for 24 hours. We gave hugs and headed off to drop off my brother.

My mom and the kids checking out the view from Dad's hospital room.

We finally get my brother dropped off and start back home. On a Friday at 3:30 pm. Ughhhhh, big mistake. The 15 N was basically a freeway the whole way home. So after sitting in traffic for basically 2 hours, we get home. Now its time to pack the kiddos stuff and drive them to their dad's for the weekend. Ok, we go to get in my new car and guess what.... I can't find the keys. Omg!!!! Did I leave them in the truck that I just dropped of at my parent's house???? Seriously???? So, I text my brother and say, "OMG I left the keys to the Scion in day's truck". So now the kids are late to their dad's house and I have to drive the Tahoe back to our parents about 40 min away to get the keys and come back home in god awful traffic. My brother calls me, "uhhhhh, I have the keys in my pocket". Of course he does. Why wouldn't he? "Ahhhhhhhh!"

Ok, I take the Tahoe and the kids, drop the kids off t their dad's, and stop at the bank to deposit my check. "Sorry ma'am, all terminals are down". Of course they are! Back in the car. My mom calls me and says that my brother drove back to. The hospital, dropped off the key and now she was heading home so she'd meet me halfway to hand over the key.

Finally have the key in my hands.

Back on the freeway I go. Meet my mom and turn around to head home. It's now 6pm. Sit in more traffic, want to stab myself. Finally make it home, pack my suitcase, get in the Scion (cause I have the damn key now), and drive 2 hours to Agoura Hills for the weekend where my dear love bug lives. Finally about 9 pm I get there, say hello to all the neighbors (very close neighborhood) who are hanging out outside, excuse myself, stuff my face with dinner that T had ready for me, and crash on the bed. 

It really felt like the longest day EVER!!!!!

But it's okay because the next two days were filled with nothing but relaxation. 

T took me on a beautiful drive up the coast in Malibu where we stopped for lunch at the famous Neptune's Net. It was a little overcast but still a beautiful drive. 

I'm home now, back with my kiddos and feeling much more relaxed. Dad is back home and doing well. All good news! 

Missed these monsters.
