Our house deal fell through.....

Happy Wednesday to all my friends here in bloggy world!  I hope that everyone is having a better day than I am.  Today a "friend" of 6 years backed out of our rental agreement.  Remember how excited I was about getting a house....well it is not going to happen anymore.  BUT I have decided that it is a blessing!  She had a TON of stipulations on the house like we couldn't use the master bedroom, it had to stay locked.  We had to stay in the guest room and Ashton and Callie would have to share a room.  We only have Callie a few days a month so that wasn't a big deal.  When she came to Texas to visit she was going to stay at the house.  We were not allowed to put any of our pictures up on the wall, we had to leave her decorations up.  LAME SAUCE!!!  The only reason that I was even going to stay there was so Dustin and I would have a place to live after we got married and we could look for a permanent home.  BUT we will just have to start looking again.  I am glad though, because she is a nut job and I didn't want her to have any control over me. 

In other new Duck Dynasty season 3 starts tonight!!!!  WOO HOO the Beards are Back Jack!!!

TGIF!!!  I am linking up once again with Steph and Sarah for Happies and Crappies. 


As of April 1st I will be moving into a new house!!  Dustin and I are renting a house from very good friend.  She is moving to Colorado and is leaving the house fully furnished!  Not only is is an adorable house it is still in Santa Fe so Ashton will be able to stay in Santa Fe schools!! 

Dustin got me perfume, flowers, pillow/blanket set, and a stuffed dog for Valentine's Day.  I love the perfumes that he got me!!

I found a new bridesmaid after one of mine had to drop out.  I am excited because she is a great friend.  Be on the look out for a blog post introducing my bridal party. 

I have amazing friends that text me and talk to me when I am having bad anxiety and they love me even though I can get a little crazy.

I went and got A LOT of candy for the candy buffet I am having at the wedding!  Thank goodness for 50% off candy!  Ha ha now they are all packed up in a plastic tub so I won't eat them they stay fresh. 


I was having a great 2 days and then today was a bad one....but I am pulling myself out of my funk.

Ashton is really testing me and he is making me crazy.  I love my son to death but he needs to learn that NO means no. 

Dustin works all weekend and Ashton is going to his dad's for the weekend.  :-(

Weekend Update and a Giveaway!!

I am linking up with Sami for Weekend Update.

Friday I picked Ashton up from school and we took off to see the Wienermobile.  I know that I talked about it in my Friday's post, but it was so much fun!!  I had never seen it before and had always wanted to.  Ashton and I took a few pics of it, and he actually went inside it.  After we left there, we went and picked up my little nephew Xander.  I love my nephew so much and I was happy to have him for the night.  Him and Ashton always have a good time together.  I made my boys take a pic with me cause I love them so very much!! 

Saturday was not a good day for me.  I have been having CRAZY anxiety and had a major break down.  I sobbed and sobbed while my mom held on to me and let me cry.  She was praying for me to have perfect peace through out my body.  After I cried I felt better.  Although I am not gonna lie I took half a Xanax and then last night had a small glass of wine.  I also sent a few texts to the AWESOME Marcy from The Mustache Diaries and that made me happy.  

Sunday I woke up and I felt good.  I felt like the cloud was starting to lift off of me.  I wasn't going to go to church with my mom, but she asked me to.  I went and it was the perfect message for me, so I knew me going was the right thing to do.  The preacher gave me some verses to look up when I am feeling anxious so I highlighted them in my Bible. After I came home from church Ashton and I watched a few movies on Netflix.


Me and my boys!! 
My crazy kiddo being a vampire.

My silly nephew playing cars in the dog bed.  Crazy kiddo!
My yummy bottle of wine.
Keeping it classy in a plastic cup!
