So Scott and I discovered this place one Sunday after church. We always go looking for homes after church on Sunday. We saw this cute little neighborhood and went into the model home to meet the lady and we fell in love with all of the homes. Then we asked if she would rent and she said no. So we left disappointed. Scott decided to give her a call and she said she'd rent to us (I think I already told ya'll that) but when we met with her again this week she told us that she felt so bad that she told us no and could tell we we disappointed and so she prayed that we would call her back, which we did, and waallaa! Prayer answered. Yay!!
So I'm gonna hop off because I'm got some moving to do. Catch back up with you sometime next week.

So I'm very excited because Scott and I have an appointment set up with a lady today to go look at some houses. We found this super cute neighborhood in Bentonville called High Point. They're the craftsmen houses like I love and they're teeny tiny but just right for us! What I like about them is even though they're small they have very nice amenities. Like hard wood, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, jacuzzi tubs etc. The ones we're looking at are 3 bedroom which we desperately need. When my family was up here this weekend Kyle had to sleep on the couch and Landon slept in our big leather chair! It has an ottoman don't worry. We didn't make him sleep upright. It was just cramped and my family comes up a lot and other visitors too so we really need an extra bedroom.
Scott and I have had a hard time finding rental houses. They're either super old in a crappy neighborhood or really nice and something we'd like to own but the rent is ridiculously expensive. I broke down at one point and told Scott we were just gonna have to purchase but of course I didn't win that battle. So I'm very excited about this neighborhood. They have 4 houses for us to look at and I really hope I like 1 of them. I'm very picky.
Hmm....well I guess I should make lunch. Even though nothing sounds good. Don't you hate that? When nothing sounds good. It's probably extra hard since I have all of two options, turkey or tuna. Enjoy the first day of fall!

My whole family came up for the game including Landon. They got in on Friday and I helped Landon do some of his homework that his teacher sent with him.
So cute! On Saturday we all woke up excited for the football game! We avoided tailgating extremely early because of the rain, but luckily it stopped semi-early enough. We got out there at about 3:30 and had a lot of fun hanging out at the SAE alumni tailgate. It was very nice and all of Scott's buddies were there. Before we went though, we stopped in the SAE house so Landon could take a look. We also stopped in the Sigma Nu house because my dad is an alum and he wanted to check out their brand new house. I'd never been in it either and it was really nice. Still smelled new. Wonder how long that'll last...
The game was typical. Start off awesome and end up losing. Not at all surprising. The Hogs need to step it up. I had a lot of fun. I'm really happy my family came up. I always enjoy their company. We had a great time and I cant wait until the Auburn game so we can do it all over again

I'm home from work right now 'on-call.' I don't have any appointments until 5:00 so I opted to go on call. You can pretty much bet that on a rainy day, you won't get any clients coming through the door. I'm too ADD to sit at the salon and twiddle my thumbs so I just came home.
I would give anything to have a chocolate covered strawberry right now. It has to be one of my all-time favorite things EVER. I LOVE a chocolate covered strawberry and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory makes some delicious ones! I'm strong though and didn't go get one before I came home. I met with my trainer yesterday for my monthly check-up. He weighed me and checked my body fat and thought I was doing pretty good but I begged to differ. So we talked about everything I eat on a daily basis and what time I eat it and he did to me what I feared he'd do. He took my Special K Cinnamon Pecan cereal away! Boo. Now I have to eat eggs for breakfast which I don't mind but my cereal was just so good. I looked forward to it every morning!! He wants me to check back with him in 2 weeks to see if it's making a difference.
Glee comes on tonight! If you aren't watching it you're making a big mistake. It's such a great show! Going to be one of my new favs for sure. I'm going to try and watch a lot of the new shows this season. The ones on ABC all look good. I love TV and having 'shows' to watch. It makes my life more enjoyable! I think I'm really looking forward to Modern Family the most. That one looks funny. Also Couger Town because I love Courtney Cox and Flash Forward. Flash Forward looks more appropriate to be a movie instead of a TV show but I'm gonna give it a shot. Since they took Dirty Sexy Money away from me and ruined my Wednesday nights because of it, hopefully these shows will make up for it. Although I doubt it because DSM was SO good and I'm SO sad they cancelled it.
Alright the couch and my blanket is calling my name.

Scott's too cute to be mad at for too long so as he was leaving for work, and apologized for waking me up he said 'I really don't know what to do about it' to which I had nothing to do but laugh and say 'Me Either!'
But seriously...what am I going to do about this? This kills me. Not a good way to start off a day....especially when it's your day off. So annoying. I'm open for suggestions. Facebook me.
I really don't have anything else to say. My day consisted of nothing so I really don't have anything to talk about. Unless you want me to give my opinion on Kanye West which I almost don't even want to waste my time on him. I'm hungry so I'm going to start cooking.

Scott and I just got home from church. After church we had lunch with Brad and Jaclyn then I went to Banana Republic with Jaclyn to help her find 'work clothes.' I'm jealous because Jaclyn has to go to New York this week for work. She has to go to New York all the time for work and I'm always all the way jealous of her. One of these days I'm gonna hop on a plane and go with her! She works for Coty and does all of the make-up and nails for Walmart and, fittingly, their offices are in NYC so she's there quite often.
This weekend was fun. Friday night we had din at Hermans with Brad and Jaclyn then went to Theos after and sat on their patio. ALL of Scott's friends who live here met up with us then some of Brads friends came too so we had a large crowd. Always fun! Last night Scott and I stayed in and rented The Other Boleyn Girl. Such a great movie! I highly encourage everyone to watch it.
Funny story: After I cried on here with my last post about only losing two pounds, I stepped on the scale the next day to be an extra two pounds lighter. What's that about? I've just decided to stop obsessing with the number on the scale. Well, not really I'm totally lying. I'm just not gonna hop on it as often as I do. Actually I've been given no option because Scott is hiding it from me. That tiny little box makes me way too emotional. It's always changing it's mind on me and plays games that I don't understand how to follow. I'm breaking up with it....for a while. We'll get back together next month.
I'm gonna snuggle up with a blanket now! Have a good weekend! I know yours is probably over but mine is just beginning.

I've been on my diet for a whole month now and I weighed today and cried because I've only lost 2 pounds. 2??? TWO?? I guess I'm confused since I eat healthy like it's a life or death kinda thing and since I work out 5 days a week. With sweat dripping down me like I've never seen in my life before. Running so long and so hard my left knee now feels like the bones are scratching each other. I mean I guess I'm so confused. Scott told me I shouldn't have weighed today since I did cheat this weekend for labor day. But even though I cheated 2 days I kept my portions really small and ate how a normal person eats probably. And I'm sorry even if I ate pizza and cheeseburgers every day, I should still lose weight with how hard I exercise. UGH! Scott and I discussed for about 30 minutes what I could possibly be doing wrong and we came to no conclusion. I can tell a difference in my legs. They are hard as bricks and don't jiggle even when I try to make them jiggle. So that's good. And Scott said my back looks leaner. Maybe I am just 'gaining muscle' even though I hate when people say that to me. Hello I've been hungry and running like Forrest Gump for a month. Reward me please. I'm still gonna stick with it and spend more time lifting weights and see if that makes a difference. I get extremely sad when I'm not rewarded for my good deeds. And if you haven't noticed by now, weight is an extremely sensitive issue with me. I blame it on competing in pageants but that's a WHOLE other story... Looks like those Manolo's I planned on having next month aren't gonna happen at this rate.
Scott's job at Sara Lee is going good. He doesn't get a computer until next week so he's been kinda at a loss. He's very impressed with how much more laid back these suppliers are than IP in Memphis. Not quite as intense....although if I know my husband I'm pretty sure his intenseness won't fade with this job. We're really excited because Sara Lee's headquarters are in Chicago so we're on our knees praying daily that he has to go to Chicago soon for some kind of orientation...or something job related. What if he got relocated there? For just like...a year? Totally have to highly consider that.
Okay my chicken is done now. Scott's trying to make my homemade salad dressing and I think I should probably hop up now and help. Have a good night!

The next morning my friends headed back home and Scott and I stayed behind to hang out with my family for Labor Day! My parents got really tickeled when they walked into our bedroom and this is what they saw....

I've been complaining to Scott since I met him that my body seems to be really tense and I'm always uncomfortable in my neck and shoulders. I've talked about going to a chiropractor for a while but have never followed through with it. I took my stuck neck as an opportunity to go visit a chiropractor for the first time in my life and hopefully he would not only fix my stuck neck but maybe relieve some of the pain in my tense shoulders as well. So I made an appointment with a chiropractor that was recommended to me and off Scott and I went.
First the doctor cracked me between my shoulder blades and it felt so good. Then, he had me sit in a chair so he could pop my neck. When he did it, I instantly looked at him and told him I was about to pass out. And I did!! Scott said I freaked him out because my body started convulsing like I was having a seizure. I clearly freaked the doctor out too because he had sweat beads pouring down his face. When I came to, he laid me down and asked me if I was epileptic. I said no and he told me that in his 25 years he had seen that happen to his patients only 2 other times. He said I had a ton of stress in my neck and shoulders and when he adjusted me it made my nerves go insane and it made me pass out. No need to worry...just lay there until I feel better and made a joke that I was gonna be 'one of those patients!'
So I laid there with Scott until I felt fine to get up, pay then leave. We walked into the waiting area and the receptionist told us the amount, Scott handed her the credit card and I looked at Scott and said 'I'm about to pass out.' AND I DID! AGAIN! Boom. Completely hit the floor. Scott didn't even catch me. He said he just watched in amazement and shock as I fell backwards and hit my head on one of the chairs in the waiting room. (bad husband) Scott said the chiropractor saw it happen and ran over to me shaking me and yelling my name trying to get me to wake up. When I came to the second time, my first thought was 'did I just do that again?' They picked me up and took me into a back room where I could lay down, covered me in ice and told me to lay still for a long time. Scott got me some crackers and water and after about 25 minutes I felt okay to leave....and I didn't pass out again.
We got in the car and we were both completely freaked out. I called my Uncle Rex who's a doctor and told him what happened and asked him if I should go to the hospital and he said no then said the same thing the chiropractor said. That I must have been extremely tensed up and my nerves just went crazy when he adjusted me. I asked him about me shaking like a seizure the first time I passed out and he said again, it was just my nerves that I must have been crazy tense. He said I would be just fine.
I came home and laid down and Scott and I couldn't stop talking about it for the rest of the night. He told me that I'm a polite passer-outer because I at least warn you every time I'm about to do it! And he felt really bad for letting me fall all the way back and hit the chair with my head! We googled if that's normal and of course I'm like, 1 in a million people that does that. You know me, always have to have the weird medical problem.
I was supposed to go in for another adjustment today because he didn't get to finish with all the passing out but I opted out. Do you seriously think I'll ever go back to a chiropractor? Ummm...no! I'd be terrified that I'd pass out again. No more chiropractors for me. The guy was really nice though and called late last night to check on me. Scott told him I wasn't going to come in anymore because I was too frightened to and he completely understood.
So yeah, that was my day yesterday. Quite the drama queen. And if you're wondering, my neck feels 85% today. I think from now on though, I'll just stick to the massages and the muscle relaxers my uncle calls in for me!
