Hello Kitty & Birthday Plans

I have to, have to....HAVE TO share with you all what I got from my mom as a late Christmas gift!

Are you ready?

Ya sure?


What do you think!? Not sure what it is?

How about now???

It's a Hello Kitty crocheted beanie!! I love it! However, I'm not sure how often I will be wearing this out in public haha. Sorry mom! I have been wearing it around the house the past two days..hehe.

I had to put it on my little Christmas tree just so you all could see the cute tassels (I guess that's what I would call them)

Eek..My face is big! I'd probably wear this out if my face was slimmer and well..yeah. lol. I do love the beanie though. The girl that made it has a blog and actually makes sock monkey beanies and other cute beanies! here's her page : Love, Laugh, Sew . Her beanies are really cute and she'll sell them to you, or make you your own, if you ask! That's how my mom was able to get me this one.

I laugh because all of my friends think my mom is Martha Stewart because she cooks great and sews and pretty much does everything amazing! Well, she can't crochet..I, however, picked that skill up. I just need to perfect it cause right now all I can make is a really crappy scarf LOL.


Is my 25th Birthday!!!!

My plans tomorrow are to sleep in cause I have a 5 day weekend. Yay me!! Then at 8pm I will be heading out to BJ's Restaurant with about 10+ friends to celebrate!! I can't wait. I hope the boyfriend will be there but he keeps telling me he "has plans". Riiiight..I don't really believe him but we'll see. I'm still deciding on how I want to do my makeup and how I want my hair to look for tomorrow night. Let alone what I'm going to wear! Eeeek. *Runs out the door to go shopping*. Yeah, I'm sure I'll find something.


My future mother in law (Boyfriends mom) made me these cupcakes for my birthday!! Haha she knows I love hello kitty!! I can't wait to open my gifts and see my friends!

Night Night everyone!! This birthday girl has got to get some beauty sleep!!

Merry Christmas 2011!!!

Merry Christmas!!!!!! 

I know I'm a little late in posting this but I thought I'd say Merry Christmas anyway and post some pictures from this Christmas. I hope your Christmas was great too!! Mine was good except for me missing my family a bit this year. I've been in Texas now for 3 years and haven't spent a Christmas at home since before I moved.

What did everyone get for Christmas???
I got:

  • 2 Old Navy Gift Cards
  • A starbucks gift card
  • Tons of Candy
  • Hello kitty plush :)
  • Katy Perry Perfume
  • Pair of Vans
  • Target gift card (from work)
  • Soaps, hand sanitizers
  • Candles
  • Hello kitty ornament
  • Jewelry box
  • A really pretty jade necklace (bf's dad got it for me)
  • Undies...Woot!
  • Lip Balms
  • A digital photo frame
  • A dallas cowboys snowman
  • Kitty Ornament
  • Hello Kitty earrings from my friend Ashley
  • Axles for my car
and my boyfriend got me a smashbox palette and the urban decay 24/7 eyeliner pencils but we are going to return both because I'm really not into buying makeup's expensive and I already have 3 makeup palettes that I barely use. I have really cut down on makeup usage because it's really expensive and I just don't care to spend $40 on something I might or might not like. We talked about it and I really felt like a bad girlfriend for not loving his gift but he understood and wasn't sure if I'd like it or use it. He said we'll just return it and get something I like. I have the most understanding boyfriend ever!! I <3 him.

 My baby girl moved when I was taking her picture...She was so excited to get her new toys and pretty zebra pink collar and leash :)

Our stockings at my boyfriends dad's house. :) You can see mine!!

My mom is going to kill me for this one but I got to skype with them on Christmas and we opened gifts together!! :D

My handsome man opening his gifts

My domo and me for Christmas!!

I had to use my old stocking and my new one to hold all of the stocking stuffers my mom sent..and then Sissy and Blake's were on the other hook. lol

My pretty girl!! I gave her a bath right before Christmas and now she's all fluffy and smells super good! I love her!!

What did everyone get for Christmas?!?!

Oh....2 more days till my Birthday!!! I'll be 25!! My boyfriend and my friend Jose went out last night to do an early celebration. We went to Benihana's (Over priced hibachi grill). It was still nice. We ate and got a picture taken together and I got a birthday dessert! It was fun! Thursday (my birthday) I'm going to have a get together with friends for dinner and hang out. I can't wait!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year!!!

Doesn't Seem To Be My Kind Of Month -_-

Seems like I can't catch some slack this month. Let me fill you all in. So Texas Human Health Commissions (whatever) says that I owe them $220 for Food stamps when the bf and I were on it. Yes, we went through a rough time and had to do what we could to get by. Well they want me to pay that to them because the last month that we had it, my bf got unemployment. They had told us we could use both but obviously not! So now they sent it to collections -_-. 

On top of that, yesterday we were driving home and ok, I messed up. I went from a turn lane....straight..Our HOV lane is right after this left lane only. So instead of fighting to get in the other lane and then back over, I just went straight..And so did about 4 people in front of me. Well, cop pulled me over and told me "I saw some people do the same thing in front of you but I chose to pull you over". I was like wtf really?! I'm pretty sure it's cause I drive a civic. So now I have to go to court next month to fight or pay this ticket. Ugh! This has been my 3rd ticket while living here 3 years!! I want to go back to a small town instead of a city -_-.

Okay, this one isn't as bad as the first two but still drives me nuts. Sissy, my cat, decided she was going to go psycho the other day. The previous night the bf and I took her in the car with us to meet up with a friend. Well when we got home, she started meowing up a storm and would not stop!! She meowed all night!! I hardly got any sleep. While we were at work that day, she managed to destroy the blinds in the dining room and pull up little pieces of carpet right in front of the door. Not only that, but I found out she was chewing on the side molding next to the door in the bathroom when I had locked her in there (as time out). I got home yesterday and see all of this and well, I was pissed about the ticket. I ended up locking her in the bathroom for an hour. After I let her out, she was the perfect little angel. She didn't meow at all last night and didn't scratch at the door or anything. Now I just have to replace the blinds in the dining room. Oh well.

The only good thing that has happened this month is that I got a really REALLY nice Christmas bonus from my boss. I'm still kind of sad that I didn't get a Christmas tree this year or put any lights up. It just doesn't put me in the Christmas spirit unless I have a tree and lights. My friend Ashley, however, was nice enough to bring me over a tiny table tree and I ended up decorating that one and putting it in our bedroom.

Wow, sorry this was so long....I just needed to rant a little. Hope you all are having a great Holiday!! Christmas is in 5 days! My birthday in 9! Woot. I'll try to do a post later on in the week, before Christmas, to show you all what my friend Ashley got me for Christmas :3

The Joy Of Wrapping Presents

I have ALWAYS love wrapping presents...Yes, I'm not as good as my mom but I still wrap really well. Today at work, since I'm here till 7pm, I figured I would wrap my mom's presents that have been sitting in my desk for a few days. We have three, big rolls of wrapping paper here at work because we do wrap gifts when customers ask for it. ---I'm the one doing all the wrapping--- Anyway, one is a really pretty red/gold polka dot paper, the other is green lined paper and the other is a really pretty gold/red/cream scroll type paper.

 [Hopefully my mom doesn't follow my blog all that close cause I'd rather her not see this..tee hee]

Here are the two gifts I wrapped for her. I'm waiting on my dad's gift to get here so I can wrap his and throw in a few other goodies and get this box shipped. My family is in California, so when it comes time for me to get Christmas ready I actually have to hurry and mail everything out ahead of time..Just to make it before the dead line.

Big Bow Time!!!! I <3 big bows!!

I like to include my baby girl (Sissy-Cat) on the packages because she's really like my kid and my mom looks at her as a grandkid pretty much. (don't judge! :P )

All done!!!

I hope my mom and dad enjoy opening their presents this year, even though I was not fortunate enough to get them a lot of gifts, I'm sure they'll love these regardless.

Anyone finish their Christmas shopping yet?
I've bought my mom's gift, dad's, bf's mom, bf's step mom and still have bf's dad, bf's stepdad, Sissy and my bf to buy for. So not too much more for me but still kind of a lot. lol.

Welcoming December With Open Arms

Hello Lovelies! I'm so glad that it's finally December!! aka my birthday month :3 . I couldn't be happier. Not only is my 3 yr anniversary to my boyfriend on the 5th but Christmas is the 25th and my birthday is the 29th! Plus payday is the day before my birthday!! Would only be better if I got to use that money on my birthday instead of rent hehe.

 Is everyone ready for cold weather and warm nights snuggled in a blanket? I am! Sign me up for cold weather!! I love being able to wear hoodies and keep warm..Plus it gives me a reason to snuggle with my honey and the kitty.

So, My birthday is the 29th and my boss said today that next week she will be taking me to lunch for my birthday meal. Yay! And the week after that (which is the week before Christmas) we are going out for lunch to do our white elephant gift exchange. Anyone have an idea on what gift card I should get for that, one that can be for a guy or a girl?

Oh! More good news..Things between my bf and I are getting better..Thank god. I could not go through life if I didn't have him by my side. I'm glad we can get through tough times. <3

I hope you all have a great day!!

Target Makeup Bag - My 2nd One!

I received my Target Makeup bag sometime last month and haven't had a chance to do a post about it. I actually didn't see too many people posting about the new makeup bag.

I was totally excited to get this in the mail!! I almost thought I didn't get one because Target's website was having issues.
  1. Makeup bag by Allegro - I Love the Purple, Pink and Ivory design on it better than the first makeup bag.
  2. Pond's Towelettes - Great for removing makeup. Stay tuned for a review!
  3. L'Oreal Youth Code - I've actually received a sample of this before and put it on at night and wasn't too impressed by it.
  4. Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo/Conditioner - I'm interested in trying these since they are supposed to be way better for your hair.
  5. John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo/Conditioner + $2/1 coupon - I've been using a few of my previous John Frieda samples and am interested in trying this one out. I <3 shampoos
  6. TRESemme Naturals Shampoo/Conditioner - Lower sulfates and Silicone free. Never hurts to try something new. I haven't used TRESemme in a long time!
  7. A booklet of coupons for various beauty items - Ended up throwing this away since it expired last month and I never got around to using any of them.

Did anyone else receive their Target Makeup Bag? If so, what did you like about this one compared to the first one?

Herrow! - Name Change Help!

Hi Ladies

So I've already talked to you all about switching my blog over from just makeup to pretty much posting about everything again...Well I would love it if you guys could help me come up with a new creative name for my blog. A little weird right? Asking for help of a blog title. But I really want someone fun and something new, other than "Makeup my life with color".

If you could just leave a comment telling me what some good title's would be that would be awesome! 

My blog will be about photography, food, makeup, my kitty and just everything in between. So leave me your ideas and comments!! Thanks!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm just a tad bit late on posting this but .....

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!!!

I hope you all had a great dinner and spent time with your loved ones and families! My family lives in California and Missouri so I don't get to see anyone but I did get to spend my Thanksgiving with close friends and my boyfriend. Our friend Nick invited us over to his mom's house for dinner and I brought two pumpkin pies and a green bean casserole. We had turkey, casserole, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls and tons upon tons of desserts!! There were 3 pumpkin pies, chocolate chip cookies, german chocolate cake, tres leche cake, some other chocolate cake and gingerbread cookies.

My Trip To San Antonio!! :3

Hello Ladies, those that are still around! lol. I went to San Antonio, TX over the weekend with some of my friends, no boyfriend, and it was amazing! I had such a blast! We went to a car meet first called Cupcake Meet and my friends cousin entered the cupcake contest and got 2nd place even though we all thought she should have won. Oh well. The next day we went to the Japanese Tea Gardens and it was so pretty. There were a bunch of Koi fish and I love Koi! From there we went to the Riverwalk which is basically a river and there are all sorts of shops and restaurants along it. I didn't realize how big it was until we went on a boat tour. After the Riverwalk excursion, we went back to my friends cousin's house and smoked hookah and then played Just Dance 2-3 on the wii! It was the most fun I've had in weeks!! Here are some pictures :3
