I'm back with some randomness

Ok, sorry for being a bit MIA lately, I honestly just haven't felt like writing much and really I haven't been doing much except working and who cares to hear about that!!

I did get to see Toy Story 3 last night with the hubby, He actually got off work at a normal person hour so we were able to do normal people things.  The movie was so adorable!! I love all the Toy Story movies I kind of grew up with them the first one came out when I was 10!!! It had such a cute story line with all the same characters and a few new ones.  I hate when sequels come out and have different characters I think it kind of defeats the purpose. 

Today I went to Sprinkles...the one in Houston just recently opened and I had to try it out and see what all the hype was.

 Well, I must say they are the best cupcakes I have had, and I love me some cupcakes.  They were so moist and the icing wasn't overly rich it really was perfect.

 They had this summer flavor out called Lemon Blueberry and I was slightly hesitant that it would be too lemony as its lemon cake with blueberries in it and then a lemon cream cheese icing, but no it was like a blueberry muffin on crack it was so delicious and the lemon was actually kind of subtle. 

Aside from that I have been just working and training for my next Half Marathon which is over Labor day weekend!

My lil' Lion

I am now the proud owner of a lion and I LOVE him

My cat had some serious dred-locks that needed fixed asap...He liked them but I wasnt so much a fan.  Im not sure how they came to be as he has never had hair that matted easily but when I left him at my parents house for 2 weeks while I got married and went on a honeymoon he decided to rebel and give himself a new do...Mommy was NOT pleased to say the least sooo since its super hot here in Houston I decided a shavin was in order

He is super super soft now his fur feels like velvet, all I want to do is hold him and pet his fur...and he looks like he lost about 10 lbs he is so tiny now I love it he is just so adorable

and just for some comparison here he is in all his furriness

Embarrassing moment #459849

So, I have a sick obsession with online shopping, but the other day my purchases actually proved worth while and not frivolous....

On Friday I finally had a chance to go to the pool, usually on my days off its cloudy or rainy, I don't know why but it seems to be good weather only when I have to work, so I took full advantage and went to the pool. Luckily when I got there I was in a spot where no one could see me, there were some other girls at the pool but they were on the other side of this big sitting area so they couldnt see me. 

 I sit down and start putting on my tanning oil blah blah blah I lean back to start reading my book and suddenly feel a cool breeze where there shouldn't be...my top popped off completely!! I freaked out and covered myself and looked around to see if anyone saw but I dont think anyone did but here I am trying to reattach my clasp only to realize it is completely broken!! I try to put my swimsuit cover on one handed so as not to flash anyone that may be looking out their apartment windows or anything and run upstairs to change.  During which time I couldnt stop laughing and Im sure everyone I passed thought I was crazy or possessed or something.

While trying to make a decision on what to wear I realize my swimsuit collection is in dire need of an upgrade...I havent purchased a swimsuit in about 4 years and the one I had actually bought last year was the one that broke.  Two of them were free swimsuits that were being given away by American Eagle during spring break 4 years ago, one was the swimsuit I bought 4 years ago for that spring break, and the last one I honestly dont know how old it was but it gives me a uniboob soooo yeah it has to go. Not to mention they all are kind of saggy in the bum and really not extremely flattering anymore.

Which leads me to my recent online purchase...I get the JCrew catalog in the mail and always browse through then throw it away.  Well after receiving the same catalog four times and seeing the same swimsuits which I love I decided it was a sign and I needed to go online a see what I could find.

I found this:

Which should be here next week, this one is in black

I also found this:

which is going to bein the color shown and wont be here until august...but around here I should be able to wear it through September and some of October.

SO I was really glad I bought these because after my swimsuit mishap I realized I really do need some new swimsuits to wear

7 Quick Takes (VOL 2)

The hubs and I both have the weekend off this weekend!! I am so excited lately our days off have not fallen together and that makes for seeing each other very little lately (you mean to say I am married? sometimes I forget)...He always makes sure we do something fun when were both off, so I really am looking foreward to this weekend

I made the best spaghetti sauce I have ever eaten this past week, I will have to do a post with the recipe, but I was so proud of myself because I just kind of mixed up a bunch of things and it ended up being AHHH MAA ZING, I guess Im becoming a real chef now right...or am I just a cook?

My cat will be going to the groomer next Friday, I really can not wait.  I am so tired of the little hair floaters that are everywhere and He will look so cute with his little lion shave

My brother in law and his family just found out they are having a boy!! They have two girls and decided to just try one more time for a boy and they got it, I am so happy for them!

I'm committed to another 1/2 marathon, for labor day weekend.  I have started running more again and really need to pick up the training now, its only about 13 weeks away, and this time I want to actually train for it unlike the last 1/2 I did.

The show Hoarders has started up again, which means I will be excessively cleaning and getting rid of stuff so as not to feel like a future hoarder.  I watch the Biggest Loser and then go work out like crazy and I watch Hoarders and feel the need to clean and organize like crazy...see TV really isn't so bad it really does make me a better person

We really need a new computer, I feel it is only a matter of time before ours spontaneously combusts (or one of us throws it across the room or bashes it Office Space style), we're thinking of a MAC...any suggestions?

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
