Lets get some things straight ya'll.  Blogging is fun.  It is an outlet, a diary, a place to lose yourself in YOUR thoughts, a place to release praise, anger, and stories of your life.  Reading blogs is fun too!  You can learn about  others, see what they do daily, see their families, their struggles, their success & their losses.  You can enter giveaway's, review peoples products & see a lot of great ideas.  You can see how others travel, decorate, shop, parent, and live.  It is really tons of fun!  Now what I want to get straight is that if you don't like the way someone does something then WHY ARE YOU READING IT???  Look up there in the right hand corner of your computer (left if ya have a Mac!) see that little red X?  That's all you gotta click if you don't like what you are reading.  Why do so many people find it necessary to leave little snarky bitch comments on the way people choose to live their lives?  You don't like that my kid watches t.v.?  Suck it.  You don't like that I spend money on frivolous things?  Suck it.  You don't like that my kid eats french fries at least once a week?  Suck it.  WHY DO YOU CARE?  I just am over it.  I am writing this not only for my girl iGriza but for myself because I am sick of reading all of these bitchy comments people leave on each others blogs!  Ya'll grow up!  If you are disturbed by the way someone else is living it is by no means your place to say anything.  I can assure you, you aren't perfect either.  No one is.  So ladies, get off of your high horse, unsubscribe, and take your sad life on and read something you agree with, like "Living Life as a Miserable Bitch."

And if you have a chance run on over to Kickstarter and help my girl get to her goal so she can produce this badass invention!


Dump of the photos

Bored today here at the old J.O.B. so I figured I would share some pics.  Been pretty boring around these parts other than Scarlet developing a new love for the riding lawnmower.  That is not all she developed, she also has a lovely little yeast infection, yup you read that right.  A baby, with a yeast infection.  Doc says antibiotics are the # one cause of them, who woulda thunk it. 

Little cheerleader girl :)

What a little cheese!  She needs one of these cars if anyone has a spare!

I let her play in the bathroom sink on game day.  She pitched a holy fit when it was time to get out.

This girl cackles when I say "ooohhhh" so much that she now makes her own "OH" face!

A few days after all the Missoni talk I went to target, this sweet dress for my girl was one of the few things they had left.  I wanted to buy the blanket too but did not want to spend $30 on a oversized lovie.

Having some good quality Dad time :)

Showing off her locks.

And I guess it slipped my mind but about a month ago I filled out an application for John to be on Hell's Kitchen...guess who got called and asked to send more pics?  Guess who got called back and said the casting directors have made a decision?  Yup.  My hubs.  We will hear today whats next.  EEEK!



I love the different seasons so much and today I actually felt them all for some reason. Seasons are one of the few things we can 100% rely on to occur every single year and man are they awesome. I love the fall feeling. I love the changing leaves, the cooling weather, the smell, the football, & having a fire. Today it was cool and I had not looked at the weather. I left in short sleeves and light pants and I am actually chilly. I love it. Fall isn't the only season I like though. I like them all. By the time the next one is near I am ready. I love that towards the end of fall I can't wait for winter. The possibility of snow, the soup almost nightly, a warm fireplace, & running inside from the car to warm up. At the end of winter I am longing to pull out my "cooler" clothes and be outside. I can't wait to see flowers and trees blooming and hear birds. About halfway through spring I am dying for summer. I want the beach, the pool, the grilling & the TAN! And about 3 months later I am ready to do it all over again! I know, totally random post but when I went to get the mail I couldnt help but notice the slight change in the leaves and the rustling of the ones already fallen. What is your favorite season? Or do you love them all?

See there on that tree? About 20 leaves are turning!!! And yes that is a flag pole. In our front yard. With an Auburn flag on it. Happy fall guys and War Damn!

DON'T do it

I know I have been missing for awhile but things have been crazy.  This post is gonna be a whole mix of whats been going on but since my computer is at the doctor and I am blogging at work it may be cut short. 

First - New job is good.  My first day alone was AWFUL and I was sure I was going to get fired the next day because I didn't know how to do anything they wanted done.  If you know me you know that I have worked in restaurants my entire working life.  From kitchen, to bar, to managing, to owning.  I know them in and out.  One thing I have NOT done is worked in an office, for engineers, with drawings and specs and the worst, scariest computer program on earth. (run on sentence much?)  So after day 1 I came back with a new attitude and sat in front of this computer and learned myself as much as I could and now I know (a little) what I am doing. 

2 - Scarlet started school and is doing great!  She picked up a nasty cold that turned into an ear infection after day 2.  Awesome.  Loads of green snot, coughing, and whining but she is on the mend and the doc gave her some Codeine cough syrup?  A baby.  Codeine.  I have only given it to her before nap and bed because it makes me nervous but then again I am not a doctor for good reason.  Her 1st couple days she was not diggin' the cot but now she is napping from 11:45-2 all by herself!  Big baby.  She has started talking and goofing off more after just a week with other kids! 

3 - This is going way back.  Remember when I went to the beach with my sister and her family last month?  Well some MAJOR shenanigans occured that i have got to tell ya'll about.  I couldn't find my fave swim suit so I talked hubs into letting me buy another when I got down there.  Now all you ladies know that a good looking and good quality suit ain't cheap so I was real excited!  I went to H2O Swimwear in Orange Beach, the swim shop of H.L.Hood and found myself a pretty Juicy Couture swim suit.  I fell in love with it, the cut, the ivory soft fabric, pretty ruffles, wish I could find a pic!  After spending a pretty penny, (a very shiny expensive $200 penny on clearance) I went back to our condo to try this puppy out.  We took the girls swimming and I still loved it until...I got out of the pool to get a beer.  What happened next was pretty terrible, my brother in law started dying laughing and told me to stand still so he could take a picture.  I walk over to see the picture and what is it?  Oh just my ass, my entire, shining, big, white ass.  You can see straight through the suit.  I decide not to freak and just be sure I pull the little ruffly "skirt" down when exiting the pool but then something even worse.  I walk into the pool and my friend Becky turns her head and screams, "Sarah!!! I can see all of you!"  Ya'll I have never been so embarrased in my life.  So I immediately go take it off, call the store and explain the situation.  I told them I knew it was not their fault and I know they don't take returns but could they exchange it and send it back to the manufacturer cause obviously they didn't MEAN to make a swimsuit show your woman hood.  Right?  They said I had to talk to the owner.  So I wait, and wait and TWO days later she calls me back.  This lady was crazy ya'll, I have never and could never fathom treating a guest the way she treated me.  I did not get out of hand as she told me "Sorry but most people know when they buy a cream colored swimsuit that it may be see-through and just like a white t-shit you can see through it when its wet!"  I said WHAT?  Thats why I don't SWIM in white t-shirts... Ya'll I was FUMING!  So I cool off, get home and sit down and e-mail Juicy Couture and guess what?  NOTHING.  I haven't heard a thing from them. 

D - Let's wrap up folks.  The moral of this post is,  I like my job.  My kid is super cool and good at school.  I will never shop at either of Heather Hood's shops (H2O or H.L. Hood) and I hope that you won't either.  I will no longer buy Juicy Couture $300 suits although I have loved my past ones I would rather someone who cares have my money.  I will never buy any of Juicy Couture's brand even though I love their perfume but I just ran out so I will try something new.  Finally how cool is it that I just got to blog, at work.  Glad I kept it "short!"  Have a great week & War Eagle!
