Weekend Snapshots

A lot happened this weekend. Personal shit I rather not discuss so let's talk about the good times!

Remidog enjoyed the window pretty much all day Sunday. He's always been a vocal kid and now he gets to harass folks that walk or drive by and its pretty annoying, haha! He barks at everything and gets way too excitamated about it. The blinds had to go up because he started chewing on it. Silly boy!

E and I went to his companies Christmas party at a bowling alley in downtown, just like last year. We didn't bowl but we had a blast. Finally danced with my husband after being together for 6 years, married for almost 3. What's even crazier is that not only did we dance but we danced spanish music. It was fun to watch all sorts of folks that don't have rhythm get down to some merengue haha! 

On Sunday I baked cupcakes. I have never in my life baked anything and although they didn't come out as awesome as expected, they still tasted good. And I learned some things for my next cupcake batch. I'm pretty proud of myself for trying it out even though baking and cooking freaks me the hell out.

Friday Love 12.12.14 | Christmas Gifts for Him

Buying gifts for some guys can be tough so I made this list. It can work for some females too.. like me :) My husband is a big kid and I'm guessing most grown men are so I had to add toys of some sort. How cool is that super hero sleeping bag ($6)? I'm not sure how comfy it would be but its still pretty damn cool!

Happy Friday everyone!

Weekend Snapshots

The weekend was full of lots of activities. Home activities that is. Lots of cleaning and gardening. Yes, Ariana was gardening. Getting all types of dirt under my nails while pointing out all the earthworms so that E could toss them to a different side they could get to work on.

We were supposed to pick up our fake Christmas tree and decorations from my mama's casa that we left in the attic.. but we got busy and forgot. We did buy some ornaments for the year. I love you Hallmark! I normally like to buy one for each year but I made the mistake of taking E with me and ended up with three new ornaments. Lol!

Our Houston Texans played a fantastical game that we enjoyed at home in our jammies while doing some housework. This homeowner stuff is a nonstop job, man. It's kind of tiring but very rewarding. :)

The picture above is from a Vinted package I'm sending out today. I'm actually sending out three with Snoopy on them and a Merry Christmas card because being kind is what Vinted is all about! Have you joined yet?!

#LovePreLoved - Vinted Wishlist!

Today's post is all about my Vinted wishlist. I currently have 62 items (eek!) on my wishlist and Santa Ari is gonna gift herself some sweet goodies this year. All thanks to the lovely community members on Vinted :)

Christmas is around the corner and if these items don't convince you that Vinted is the place to buy #LovePreLoved goodies.. I don't know what will. My wishlist has lots of goodies for me but also some items that I think my friends&mom would love. Gifts aren't about where you bought them or how much it costs.. it's all about the love and thought you put into it.

Follow the link for more pictures of my Vinted wishlist :)

31 years ago today, Michael Jackson's Thriller video was released. I know folks who are still traumatized by this video!! I can't tell you exactly how old I was when I first saw it but I do remember how it made me feel. I couldn't get over how awesome the zombies looked. The dancing was crazy good and I knew that one day I would own that red jacket Michael was wearing..

..I'm 30 years old and I still don't have that jacket. -enter sad face here-

Do you remember how old you were and how it made you feel?!

Weekend Snapshots

New front door mat :)
My husband and I hit Home Depot this weekend. Our very first visit as homeowners. I kept telling him to slow down because my eyes were seeing everything in a new light now that we own a home, haha! 

Our main reason for going to Home Depot was to get some parts for our lawnmower. If it were up to E, we'd have a badass $400 lawnmower but umm.. there's just something about spending that much cash on something that won't be used as much. We also needed a big garbage can since we don't get one from the City due to being outside of Houston City limits -shakes fist-

We ended up buying all sorts of goodies including a floor mat and the throne room got a new toilet!! The one we had needed to be replaced, big time! This is also the first toilet that E has installed that he'll get to use daily. TMI, but still pretty awesome, haha!  Another thing we did was install our tv on a wall mount in the living room, it looks freaking awesome!! Handyman husbands are the business!
