Today was non-eventful. Just like every day this week. I'm reading Breaking Dawn. I just started Monday since I was busy this weekend with the landscaping. It's good but now it's from Jacob's point of view and I can't stand Jacob. I don't know how anybody could be Team Jacob. He bugs BIG TIME. He is all up in the way and he needs to back off. He's one of those boys...give an inch he'll take a mile. Bella just wants to be your friend Jacob move on. Jacobs point of view lasts a long time in the book. Too long. It's hard for me to want to read it since it's all about him right now. I'm pushing through though.
Umm that's about it. My life is not interesting right now. Scott and I are trying to decide on where to go for our anniversary trip because we need to book it pretty soon. We've been talking about it for a few weeks and we may not do a beach this year since we did that last year...or this year. We're talking about staying in the states actually. We've thrown around Napa and Colorado. I'm kinda leaning towards skiing because Scott's never been. Who knows! We'll figure it out sooner or later!

Our house in October. Pre-awful weeds. Not bad...but not great.
Our house today!

Last night I had dinner with my big group of friends. Jaclyn, Ashley, Stina, Anna and our boys at Crabbys. It was a good time! I enjoy spending time with my friends very much!
Tonight Scott and I are having dinner with his Dad and grandparents at Bonefish. I haven't had Bonefish in a while....I'm looking forward to it. Mmm....I'm hungry. I need to eat breakfast.
No work for me today (YAY). My parents have been up here all week for business but I've hardly seen them since I've been at work. Mom and I can hang today. It'll be nice.
I'm in DESPERATE need of good sleep and Scott's 6 am alarm is not helping especially since he hits the snooze for an hour. Can you imagine someone hitting their snooze button for an hour? Everyday? And the alarm sound is the most annoying alarm in the history of the whole wide world. My husband is perfect but this I cannot deal with. We are going to have to enter him into a snooze button rehab or something.
Alrighty, guess I'll hop in the shower and get dressed. BOO! Have a good weekend.

My Dad has always called me Louie--Lou for short. We aren't even sure where that came from but he never calls me Kara. Just Lou or Louie. On my wedding day my Dad was so emotional. Right before the doors opened for us to walk down the isle he said 'I love you Kara Luttrell.' But then he had a blast at the reception! He always says 'let's throw another party like that!'
My Dad is a really great man. He's a hard worker and a strong God follower. Mom is my best friend but I'm definitely a Daddy's girl. I thank God all the time for blessing me with a great, loving, stable father. God has blessed me with a lot but I believe that's one of the greatest blessings he's given me. I'm glad I married someone just like my dad because our kids are going to be really lucky to have him as a father just like Kyle and I are so lucky to have a great man like my Dad be ours! Happy Fathers Day Dad! I love you!!
And Dad doing a slalom
I love the lake!! I always have so much fun. I'm glad Kirk joined us this time! We always love boat company!

So here we go:
So that's where I'm going. As for when I'm headed out I haven't quite figured that out yet. I figure I need to do it before I have kids so that's taken care of. But I can't leave Scott behind so he's going to have to figure out how to take off for a year and still get paid. That's my only hang-up. I'll get this figured out somehow....

Scott and I spent an entire day shopping on Saturday. Let me tell you something about my husband. He is NO FUN to shop with. He wants all new work clothes but he tries them on and then wants to 'think about it.' That's fine if you do that one Saturday but a zillion in a row now? So we're in Baumans and I'm crossing my fingers that he finally buys those pants and shirts that he's tried on now for the 8th time. Did he buy anything? Nope. After we left Baumans I told him to take me home that I wasn't shopping with him anymore because it's a waste of my time. He said 'well they were out of that one pair of pants that I want and I'd rather just buy it all at once.' He bugs. Then he convinced me to drive down to Walker Brothers with him so I did and I made him buy at least 2 shirts. He of course had to wait on some other stuff for when his favorite sales guy is in there.
My husband can be very quirky. Let me tell you what he did over Labor Day weekend. It's the first day to go out on the lake and I hop in the shower first to get ready. Then he comes in the bathroom and says 'oh my goodness babe did you know you can't iron swimsuits?' Confused by why he would say that I peeked out of the shower and there he is holding his swimsuit which now has a HUGE melted hole in it. First of all, this isn't just any swimsuit. This is a $100 Peter Millar swimsuit from Baumans that he's worn once. I got so frustrated and was like 'who irons a swimsuit?? Why would you do that?' and he said 'it was wrinkled.' 'IT'S A SWIMSUIT!!' I said and he was like 'but it was wrinkled.' Who in their right mind thinks to themselves 'hmmm....this swimsuit is wrinkled I should go iron it.' After I finished showering and the initial anger of him ruining a $100 swimsuit he's worn once left me, I had nothing to do but go laugh at him....and he laughed with me but still doesn't think it's weird of him for wanting to iron a swimsuit. (I talked to the guy at Baumans and thankfully he's going to replace it for Scott since the label actually does say you can iron it if you're that one crazy person out there who wants to)
That's my husband. He's such a dork....but I'm madly in love with him. And to top things off, he ran over a nail on 540 on our way home from Fayetteville and our tire made the loudest pop and we started bopping down the road like we were in an old Model T. Scott pulled to the side, opened his door and looked at the tire and said 'that's awesome' in a very sarcastic tone. The rim was on the ground....of Scott's new company car. HAHA. It made me laugh really hard.

Do they dream of mauling zebras, or Halle Berry in her Catwoman suit?
Don't you worry your pretty striped head, we're gonna get you back to Tyson and your cozy tiger bed.
And then we're gonna find our best friend Doug, and then we're gonna give him a best friend hug.
Doug, Doug, oh, Doug, Dougie, Dougie, Doug, Doug!
But if he's been murdered by crystal meth tweakers, well then we're shit out of luck."
Watching this movie for the bowillionith time tonight. Is it me or does it get funnier and funnier and funnier the more times you watch it?
And.....I just found this while browsing through my computer
Oh and also I finished EAT. PRAY. LOVE (loved!!!) like I promised I would. So I've officially knocked a few of the 25 things I want to do when I'm 25 off my list such as: Read a good book & take out my contacts at night. I've been really good about that. Also, I'm continuing my workout regime AND I'm being better about accepting and giving compliments. (I'm bad with compliments. I can't just say thank you and move on...I have to be like 'oh no this outfit is so old, no my hair is gross, no my ring is really dirty, no this meal was easy, etc....I'm learning to just say thank you!!!!)My father-in-law, Randy, came over tonight to celebrate an early Father's Day. We're going to be in LR next weekend for my friend, Amber's (and fellow MTA sister!!) wedding. So we celebrated Father's Day for him tonight. And I had to take a picture because Holly really likes Randy. She always snuggles by him and he pets her the whole time which is funny because he really likes animals but is one of those who would never own one. Also we opened a bottle of Ambullneo tonight which is the best wine to touch my pallet ever.
So do you think I'm a little off my rocker after this post? I know that was incredibly odd and random. But I had a lot of different thoughts in my head tonight with a blog topic and I just decided 'eh! just do it all in one.'

So yesterday was a touch entertaining I suppose. Okay I'm off to swim laps. Then I'm gonna come back home and finish my book and get ready for my wine tasting tonight. Exciting!!

So I go to B&N before lunch to buy a magazine to read while I had a break at work later in the afternoon. But a book caught my eye. And since one of the 25 things to do while I'm 25 is to read a good book, I decided to forgo the wasteful magazine and buy the book! So I bought EAT. PRAY. LOVE. Yes I'm way behind on this but better late than never! Okay so....I can't put the book down. I read over 100 pages of it today and can't wait to read more. I was so excited about coming home and reading it until Scott so proudly said 'I'm not gonna work tonight since I worked so late (12:30) last night!' Of course. The one night you decide not to work is the one night that I find a book I can't seem to put down and was looking forward to reading when I got home. HAHA! I'd rather have my husband....the book will always be there. But I will be finishing up with her trip to Italy when I lay in bed tonight because I think she's almost done being there. If you haven't read it YOU MUST!!!! I'm not even finished yet but I'm so obsessed and pretty sure I'm going to need to take a year off from life and travel like that except I'd go to different countries. I haven't decided where yet but it's definitely going to happen....mark my word. I'll probably finish this book tomorrow. I will keep you updated. Read it! Such a good decision I made with that today! It has potential to change my life. :)

Then I got to work and got my check and it was not too shabby. I'm getting so much busier which is such a great blessing. It makes me excited and motivated and really love my job even more than I already do. So that's was exciting moment number 2!!
THEN I received a text from Scott telling me he got a promotion at work today!!!!!!!!!! It totally came out of nowhere. He's been at his job for only 9 months and he's already been promoted?? How does that happen? Oh yeah that's right it's because my husband is an insane work horse. Ya'll hear me say it all the time. His hard work has paid off! His official title is Category Insights Manager. Yes I said manager. We are ecstatic!! A very exciting bonus with this job is a company car!! Scott's getting his car tomorrow!!! No more insurance, gas, or maintenance bills to worry about. That's all on sweet Mrs Sara Lee! I had a grin on my face all day long. I'm SO SO SO SO SO proud of Scott. He works incredibly hard. Crap he works all day long. He got home from work at 8 today, took an hour break while we cooked/ate dinner and now he's sitting next to me on his laptop working. He deserves this. He EARNED this. He makes me so proud. I'm so happy for him. This is such a cool blessing for us that just came from nowhere!!!! What a cool surprise.
So I KNEW it was going to be a great day today.......and I was right! :)
