ROSES & THORNS

Hello Lovely Ladies!

Work has been so busy for me lately. I won’t have time to post tomorrow so I’m quickly posting Roses and Thorns today.

* I had the best day off yesterday. Billy and I spent the whole day together which is really rare for us. We ran lots of errands in the morning, ate lunch at Ruby Tuesday, then spent 2 hours at Target! We bought lots of toys, Christmas presents for the kiddos in our life. Buying presents for others is so much fun! After that shopping extravaganza, we went home to rest. Then we went to my parent’s house for dinner. Billy played Scrabble with my parents and I watched Monsters Inc. with Dominic. He was such a ham, love that little dude!
* I ate much better this week.
* I will be going to the gym today and tomorrow, making that 4 days at the gym this week.
* Billy and I have been engaged for 6 months now!! We have not a single plan for a wedding. We are perfectly fine with this, we’re just happy to have each other.
* The hairwraps are taking off slowly on our Etsy site but Billy has worked some magic through hockey associations, selling custom hairwraps like hotcakes! Awesome for us!

* My Dad did not get called back to work :( Please keep him in your T&P's to be called back asap!
* I will be babysitting the entire weekend. I am a little bummed about not having any alone time and not getting much time with my B. The extra $$ will be nice and I will be with my sister so that’s always fun ;)
* Totally behind on blogs but I’ll be catching up tonight and tomorrow. Billy has hockey both nights.

Have a great day/weekend my friends!! XO!

p.s. this idea is not originally mine, i barrow it from Kristen!

you're so right, buying presents for others is so much fun! but at the same time it can be stressful when that person is hard to buy presents for. i.e - friends that are boys! haha! ;P buying pressies for little ones is the best though, especially seeing the smile on their face when they get it!

praying for your dad! have a great thursday and weekend!

Marian said...

Oh sounds like a fabulous day!! I wish my company celebrated the holiday.

And good work going to the gym!!! So proud. I need to follow your lead.

And big congrats on the Etsy site. So exciting.

Keeping your pops in my prayers girlie

xoxo

YAY for all day with your man!! I love those days!

Miss Kriss said...

Yaay! It looks like the roses far outweigh the thorns in your life, girlie! And you should get an extra rose or two for doing your shopping this early! I haven't even thought about it!!

Congratulations on being engaged for 6 whole months! I just realized that yesterday marked the 6 month engagement mark for me as well! Yaay! We must've gotten engaged around the same time!!

Annie said...

I SO need to be getting my buns to the gym...good for you for 4 times this week! That should serve as some good motivation for me!

Thoughts and prayers for your daddy!!

Have a great weekend :)

Jenni said...

Oh what a lovely list! I love spending time at target with spencer! We always have so much fun! (even if he does roll his eyes at me as I run from department to department saying, "just real quick?" Target is the best!
I hope your dad gets the call soon, but if not i'm sure door will open soon enough!!!!!!
Babysitting will be fun. Maybe you could make christmas ornaments with the kids. That will keep billy in your thoughts even if you cant be together, and i'm sure the kids would love it!

I hope things work out for your dad!

I’m glad you were able to spend a wonderful day off together! It sounds like you had a great time dining and shopping. I love that you’re so relaxing about being engaged. I was so stressed with all of the planning. I would be just like you if I could do it again. I’m glad the hairwraps are taking off too :)

Sorry you’re tied up babysitting all weekend, but the extra money will be nice to have. I will certainly keep your father in my prayers.

YAY for eating well, a fun day off and congrats on being engaged for 6 mos!!! And boo for your dad not getting called back. He will remain in my prayers..as will you. I definitely understand worrying about parentals. I feel like I'm in many regards here to make sure my mom is taken care of. :)

I, too have SO many blogs to catch up on.. busy week takes away from blogger. Slowly but surely, it's happening though... :) Hope you had a great weekend, girl!

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

I am so glad you had a day with your man to just spend together. I really believe that those are the BEST day to have!

I love when the hubs and I both have a day off together. Those are the best!

Molly said...

Sounds like a fun day with Billy!
Congrats on selling the hairwraps!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I hope you had a great weekend lovey!! XO

Jenni said...

Hey! I tagged you in a fun little game! Hope you can play!

Amber said...

So glad y'all are having some success with the hairwraps!

We need to get on the ball with Christmas shopping. It's just so hard when the people you're buying for already have everything they need and most of what they want. It is fun buying for others though!

Hope your weekend was fantastic! XOXO
