Kelly Osbourne has never looked better. Props to her.

I have a tiny fever, 99.0. My regular body temp is between 96-97 so that's a high temp for me. I did have the worst sore throat in the whole wide world but that's actually feeling a touch better. I have a horrible stopped up nose yet I have to blow it 100 times a day. And don't even think about getting good sleep at night. I've taken a whole box of DayQuil. I'm never good at knowing what to take. I just texted Scott to send him on a mission to go find me something different. DayQuil isn't working. I think I'm about to call my boss and let her know I can't come in tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be feeling any better. Boo. I hate being sick.

Hello Mexico! We're looking forward to seeing you again.
We very randomly have decided to take a trip. Scott wanted to relax on a beach after all of this hard work he's been doing. So we contacted our travel agent on Tuesday and told her to send us some stuff. We looked at the Caribbean and other parts of Mexico but we're going back to Riveria Maya, the same place we went to in April. We love the water there so much and it's such an easy flight. And for us to be so last minute we thought this would be best. We're going to stay at the sister resort of the place we stayed last time--Secrets Capri! Tammy, our travel agent, was hesitant to send us somewhere so similar as last time but we liked this option the best. We wanted to book the trip this week and we just didn't feel like looking into lots and lots of places. We know we'll like this because it's basically the same so it makes our decision easy and less complicated.
I'm so super excited! I love a vacation! :)

**I told Scott I'm worried I have a gross worm inside me eating all of my food because I feel consistently hungry all day long for a few days now. I'm actually more hungry after I eat than before. I just suffer through the hunger pains until the next meal time comes around. It's pretty miserable.
**If I could eat a cupcake every single day I would.
**My Grammy is coming to hang out with me on Friday. She needs me to do her hair so she's coming up just for that. Love my Grammy & her company and any excuse to see her works for me!
**Scott and I have officially decided where we're going for our 2 year anniversary trip. We'll be hitting the slopes in Colorado!! I'm pumped. Our travel agent is searching for places. I can't wait to hear what she comes up with!

Tonight I'm going to cook my husband a special yummy dinner. I love him so much and he's so good to me. He deserves a fancy meal on our fancy china because I haven't done that for him in a while. He's such a great man. I hope that his greatness rubs off on me the longer we're together. Okay I've got to look through some cookbooks for a really delicious homemade salad dressing. Enjoy your Monday!

Yesterday was a great day! Jaclyn and I had lunch then decided to go to Fayetteville to hang. We both miss living in Fayetteville SO BAD. I would find it pretty hard to meet someone who enjoys Bentonville/Rogers better than Fayetteville. Fayetteville is so much better in a zillion and one ways. Unfortunately mine and Scott's lives are up here in Bentonville so it would be silly for us to have a house in Fayetteville. Thank goodness Fayetteville is just a 20 minute drive! I make it down probably 1-2 times a week and every time I'm down there I shake my head in sadness that I don't still live there and probably never will again.
Last night Scott and I went to go see The Switch. It was very cute. I would highly recommend it!
I'm watching Too Fat For Fifteen on the style network and it's just really sad. This 15 year old girl can't make it up a very tiny hill. She has to stop and sit every 10 steps. It makes me so angry that parents let their kids get to this point. Jaclyn and I were eating lunch at McAlisters and this table next to us had two little kids. One was eating macaroni with cheetos and the other was eating macaroni with doritos. Really? That's what you're allowing your kid to eat for lunch? I wanted to say something to the parents but obviously it's not my place. It made me so angry though. Fat kids is the fault of the parents. Plain and simple. They should get arrested for child neglect. Okay I'll get off my soap box. It's obviously a hot button issue with me. It makes me so sad when I see a 5 year old who probably weighs as much as I do. They don't know what calories are and what bad food does to your body.....but their parents do yet they continue to feed them cheetos, pizza, and McDonalds? You're killing your child. Props to Michelle Obama for trying to do something about it. Hopefully she can make a difference. On a cool note with this show, these kids are at a fat camp in Texas and one of them is wearing a t-shirt my parents made. HAHA!
Happy Saturday. Eat healthy! :)

My hubby is back from Chicago!! He got back around 8:30 last night. His relay is over on Tuesday which means BIG celebration. I can't wait. He worked 40 days in a row!!! For like, 14 hours a day. It's so hard to basically not have a husband. I don't like not having my buddy around. He's my bestest friend...I missed him. :(
Time to heat up my lean cuisine. I've got to come up with a different lunch for myself. I eat those bad boys for lunch every day...

Friday night was a blast! A+A racked up! Jax and Christina threw a fun partay!!!
The lake this weekend was a blast. Brad's parents were sweet to loan us their lake house. It's right on Beaver and it's so fantastic! There is nothing better than walking a few steps to your boat doc. We got there early Saturday morning and the four of us plus 3 other friends of Braclyn came out with us. We pretty much just lounged and watched Rose swim. We cooked a yummy meal for dinner and got right back out on the water on Sunday. It was great to be on the water with friends having a good time. It was the first time in 40 days Scott hadn't worked so that made me and him both very happy.

I don't know what you guys think but this dude is my freaking hero. My Dad emailed me about this hours after it happened and my response 'I totally get it.'
Who doesn't want to quit their job like this? Sure it's dramatic but I mean....it's so awesome!
Seriously picture yourself on this plane when this happens. I don't care what anyone thinks. I'm loving it and I want this guy to get a reality show and be my friend so we can talk about it for the rest of our lives. He just quit the job he dreads going to every single day the way everyone wishes they could. In the best way EVER. But like, literally ever. It's made the news. I'm loving this story.
So I just had to get my oil changed and the customer service people called me and wanted to know how my experience was and if I'm still enjoying my TSX. THEN, they flood my inbox asking me to take a quiz. And don't even think about just deleting the message and ignoring it. Oh no, they'll continue to badger you until you take it. So I just took the stupid thing then I had to leave them a special message. I informed them that I love my car, I never have trouble with it, the service I receive at Riverside Acura in LR is always fantastic but they have got to stop bugging me. I told them they call and email me way too often to make sure I'm okay with my car which is making me NOT okay with my car. I told them that their customer service tries way too hard and they are the reason I may not ever purchase an Acura ever again. That may not necessarily be true because I've had 4 cars now and it's for sure my favorite but I really needed to get my point across. If you're thinking about purchasing an Acura beware. I never thought friendly customer service could be annoying. Acura manages to make it a bad thing.
It was so traumatizing at the time but Scott and I can't help but LOL every time we talk about it now. I mean...what is that? Maybe I should thank Acura that this hasen't happened to me the next time they make me take a quiz.

So glad you're back together....
I really don't care....

Today's been good. Went to church then Jaclyn kept me company this afternoon while Scott worked. I just finished Big Brother and now I have an hour to kill before Kourtney and Khloe then Entourage and then I'm gonna check out The Girls Next Door: The Bunny House and see what I think about that. I'm not gonna lie I loved watching The Girls Next Door with the original girls. I couldn't watch it with the new girlfriends and I think the rest of America couldn't either as they no longer have a show.
Hmmm....I don't think I ate enough food for dinner because I'm starvin marvin. I may have to grab a handful of goldfish...
Gonna do some online shopping. Yay Sunday night TV!!

Today I have the day off. I think I'm gonna go to the pool and maybe get a pedicure. Then I'm going to go work out then get ready for dinner at Bordinos with my friends to celebrate Jacqueline's birthday! I'm excited about it. I love Bordinos and I love a night out in Fayetteville. It makes me happy.
Okay that's all....

I'm still hard core on my workouts. Especially within the last 2 weeks. I've upped the cardio workouts from 30-45 minutes to 1 hour-1 hour and 15 minutes. I don't know why...I just feel like it. I can tell a difference too which makes it easy to keep on doing it.
I need a vacation so bad right now. I probably say that once a week. Jake and I plan trips all the time and never follow through. One of these days we're gonna go for it. We were so totally serious about going to Vegas last week. Had all of it planned out. Never happened.
Landon is going to be in kindergarten this year and he has to wear a uniform. Either a red, white, or blue polo (how original). For all you Mom's out there (or aunts like me who love to buy clothes for their little guys) TJ Maxx ALWAYS has Ralph Lauren polo's for little boys, the good ones, and they're only $15. I looked in LR for Landon and they didn't have hardly anything. But Rogers and Fayetteville have good TJ Maxx's and they had every color in the rainbow when I looked today. Just a little FYI in case you hadn't discovered that for yourself yet. I've always enjoyed shopping for Landon since before he was born and I discovered that 5 years ago. Such a good deal.
That's all I've got for ya.

Saturday we went to the lake...of course. My family lives on the lake every weekend. Landon never managed to ski. Of course he'll only try about 3-5 times then he's totally over it. Next summer for sure. It was a fun lake day. We were silly and had fun and it was great!
Sunday was such a lazy day. We took Landon to see Toy Story 3 and I'm not even ashamed to admit I cried at the end. It was good! For some reason the power went out in my parents neighborhood around 7 and after waiting until 11 and it never coming back on, Mom, Dad, and I headed over to Kyles to spend the night.
Today I watched Landon all day. I managed to spend $100 while doing that too. I took him to the little shopping area in LR where Fresh Market and Bonefish is-- whatever that place is called. I just can't help myself when it comes to little kid clothes. I almost want to go on ahead and purchase some for my future children. I bought Landon a cute little shirt from Cupcakes and Catapillars and some Sperry's from Belk. I love Sperry's on little boys. Landon really wanted these shoes that light up but they were hideously ugly and I wouldn't buy them. I remember when I wanted stuff that I thought was so cool but my Mom thought they were ugly so she wouldn't get them for me. Like jelly shoes or those dressy socks with the beads dangling from them. Ya'll remember those? I never had any. Mom thought they were tacky and I thought that was so mean. Haha! I get it now.
After shoe shopping we went in the Toggery and I really wanted to buy him this adorable Cookie Monster shirt but it was a size 6...too big! Good thing probably...it was $50. Landon managed to find himself a Toy Story toy while in there and I don't know how to say no (except to ugly shoes) so we got it. Then got a cupcake next door. I decided after that I better go home before I spent another $100. As we were walking to the car I said to Landon 'well I've spent a lot of money on you within an hour' and he said 'It's been a great day!!!' He's so sweet. I could just eat him up.
I went home and gave everyone a haircut before I left....like always. Then Mom took me to Barbara Jean and bought me a DVF dress!! It's very Charlotte York Goldenblatt/Park Avenue...not typically a style I gravitate to but I decided to go for it anyways! It's sweet. I like!
I got home at 8 and was so hungry my vision was blurry. I watched The Bachelorette (boo ali) E! News is currently on and now I've gotta hop off so I can watch my recorded DVR of Entourage.
