Hey Everyone, happy weekend. :]
I'm going share something with you today.
I'm going to share Gerard Butler.
Well, a movie you need to see that has Gerard Butler in it.
I don't have actual access to Gerard Butler.
But I did see a movie last night and it was pretty awesome.
Yes, that says Machine Gun Preacher. You read it right. But don't write it off just yet. This is pretty amazing.
It's a feel good movie with machine guns. So you can feel good and your husband/boyfriend can be like "oh yea, machine guns" So go now to your local Redbox.

We both hate surprises, so I gave him his gift on Sunday (see monday's post) and I told him
since we are broke he had a 7 dollar limit. Cause that's what I spent on his, so today he comes to my work and surprises me with.........
Yes, that's a plant. I don't what it is. It's just labeled "Tropical Plant". very mysterious.
He gave it to me with that adorable sweet and hopeful look, and all I could think was "a plant? he doesn't know me at all! we've been married for a year!" and then he gave me a card. A card in which he quoted one of my favorite Elton John songs, and I realized he knew me. I just got a raise at work, and a permanent desk. I know the plant was his way of saying, you've made it! your all professional now! you can have an office plant! I love it. I'm so incredibly lucky. Oh you little mysterious plant, you won me over.

1. Your crooked smile is the most adorable thing I've ever seen.
2. You give the best hugs. I feel like you really hold me when you hug, it's not just a gesture. We are the perfect heights to hold each other because my head is level to rest on your shoulder.
3. You wear the hell out of a Polo shirt, and some RayBans.
4. I love how excited you get about things. You never let anyone tear down your dreams.
5. You bring out the fun side in me. The confident side. You bring out the best in me. And I hope I do the same for you.
6. You understand me. You get my jokes.
7. You are so FUNNY! I laugh more than I've ever laughed in my life when I'm with you. That's good. They say laughing is good for the soul. My soul must be the happiest and healthiest soul in the world.
8. You smell amazing. All the time.
9. You're such a wonderful person and you don't even know it.
10. I'm so proud of you it's overwhelming. You've overcome a lot, and you did it on your own. Do you know who strong you are? How many people who have tried to do what you did, with help, and have failed? I don't tell you this enough, but I should tell you everyday.

So this weekend was actually pretty exciting for once.
My parents subdivision Countrywood has this HUGE ASS community yard sale. And I mean huge, this ain't your mamma's yard sale. This is like 60 yard sales, food vendors and people coming from all over to shop. We did ours on Friday and J and I made $200 to help with bills and such. Right, *cough* bills.
J picked me up and we went to a bonfire where I had my first ever smore!
Sunday morning I fell down the stairs. Yea, you read that right. Well more like slid down them on my ass.
I was walking normally, had nothing in my hands to unbalance me. Just managed to do it.
This picture makes it looks small, but it's the size of a tennis ball and hurts like hell when I sit.
It's for us to put our tickets in, from movies, trips, and outings really. He mentioned that he'd like to save our tickets in a cool way a few months back..he didn't think I remembered...but I did. I got the shadowbox at Michaels, the scrapbooking paper and supplies at Archivers and it only cost me 7 bucks to do the whole thing. I'm not kidding, shiz was cheap. I gave it to him early and he LOVED it! I stuck with the whole "paper" them for our one year, but with a twist.

I don't know about you, but my husband and I love layaway. It's such a great option to get the item you want but with payments and timing that's more convienent for you. I can't tell you how many items I wish I had put on layaway at Target. I always see something I want and when I go back with the money, they no longer have it.
K-Mart always advertises their free layaway option around Christmas time. Have you seen the recent commercial for it? The one where the lady proclaims herself as the Queen of Layaway? I love it!
I wish we had a K-Mart near us. Not only do they offer holiday layaway, but they are also haveing Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway. Every week, one customer at each store will have his or her remaining layaway balance paid off!
That right there make K-Mart the perfect place to get your holiday gifts! Just look at it compared to other store's layways.
How exciting is that?!
I have so many things I've seen on the K-Mart website that I would put on layaway!
Like this vacuum. We really need a new one, but the money's not all there yet for it.
I also like this hairdryer. I need a really nice one and this one is perfect!
So check out K-Mart layway and you could win big today!

It's OK that it' raining right now because I'm cuddled on the couch with the Hubs watching Property Virgins.
It's OK that Blue isn't fully house-trained yet, I love him and forgive him for pooping in the house yesterday.
It's OK that I had to stay an hour and a half later at work yesterday. I made a TON in commission, and we need the money right now.
It's OK to go a little crazy and eat half a strawberry cheesecake...It is OK right?
It's OK to be inspired by Michael Jackson's wardrobe....I just bought a sheer black button down with a sequined collar, and I can't wait to wear it ALL fall!
It's OK to be silly and dance in the car..in back to back traffic.

I'm no where near finished with this one, I really haven't even started. I just want to share with
you guys the beginning stages of this project.
I'm not a crafty girl. My sister and my mom got bit by the craft bug, and by the time it got to me it had had enough. Now I love crafts don't get me wrong. I'm just not that good at them.The craft bug left when I was born and the lazy bug decided to step in and bite me.
When I do attempt things on Pinterest it's usually recipes. Because nothing cures my laziness more than knowing that food awaits me if I finish a task.
But enough of that, I'm starting to ramble.
My husband and I have been married for a year, well it will be a year in September 30th.
Since the theme for one year of marriage is paper, and I want to celebrate the many adventures we've had and will have together, I came up with the perfect gift.
I've seen this floating around Pinterest for a while and I thought it was perfect for me to make for J.

So if you're looking to have a little bit of fun to spruce up a date night a little bit here are my top 3 games to play.
This is one SO much fun to play with a bunch of friends. It requires 3-8 players so having a get-together with this one is a must.
2. Apples 2 Apples
Another fun party game, this one is all about comparisons! It's truly awesome and brings out a bunch of laughs.
3. This last one isn't a board game, instead it's an activity that requires you to get off your bums and get out of the house... BOWLING! That's right, my husband and I love to go bowling. We get so competitive and it's fun!
