Olive Garden!!!

If any of you have ever been pregnant before, then you know that you crave certain foods! Well, today was Olive Garden! I got home from work and the dining center just didnt sound very appealing. i kidded around with Josh about how good Olive Garden sounded, and right away he was like... "ok, lets go!".... IT WAS SOOO GOOD! afterwards we went to Texas Thrift to shop for baby stuff, like shelving.. they didnt have much but we did get a game. Then it was off to half priced books where we got some books for our baby and got the dvd game of deal or no deal! :)

You have to check out!!

Are you a resident of a large city or thinking of traveling to a large city? If so, then you NEED to check out where you can find all of the neighborhood maps you could need. My husband and I are looking at visiting some relatives in Boston, so I just went to their site, selected Boston and looked at the Boston neighborhood map, which will be very helpful for our trip!

Why call around for all your information, when you can get it all on one, easy to use, site! "By merging all of a city’s resources into a free, easy-to-use website, allows users to obtain information and door-to-door public transportation directions to the city’s top points of interest including restaurants, tourist attractions, sporting arenas like Fenway Park and nightlife venues."

Planning a vacation can be so stressful and I know we just want to feel confident in our plans and know that we will be safe and everything will go smoothly, while on vacation. understands these feelings and by going to their site, we will be able to plan our entire trip! "This includes: flights to and from the city, car services, hotel booking, directions, maps, the weather, restaurants, etc. With, you can literally plan your entire visit to Boston on one website!"

Not only is their site easy to use, but it also offers great alternatives to driving our own car everywhere. has all the information we will need to utilize the public transportation. This not only will save us money and hassle in an unfamiliar city, but it is also much better on the environment!

If you are thinking of taking a vacation, you NEED to check out, TODAY!

Everyone told me it would happen, and I have seen it happen to others, but it really doesnt seem real until it happens to you! haha.. MY BELLY BUTTON IS DISAPEARING!!!! It started out as an inny, now it is an outy, and soon it will be gone! haha.. just one of the many strange things that happen to you when you get pregnant:) I cant complain though, because it will be totally worth it when we see that baby smiling back at us!:)

So it was great timing that summer school move ins are here, so Josh could work extra days to get some vacation time!! not to mention he got a day of vacation for closing, and his regular 1 day for the month of may!.. so we are up to 3 days saved up for this month!!!! YAHHHHH!!!!!

Win a date with a Celeb at!

I ran across a really cool opportunity today! I know there are many companies that promote "winning a date with a star" to help promote themselves, but they are usually pretty lame. I found one that is NOT LAME at all! " is running a contest that allows you to win a date with celebrity, Mirelly Taylor from "Kiss Me Again", "Serving Sara", "Las Vegas" and "Numb3rs"!"

Mirelly Taylor has been in shows like "Punk'd", "Las Vegas", and "Numbers"! Not to mention she has been in great movies such as Kiss Me Again, and Serving Sara.

This contest and it's video's are not just run by anyone, either. Emmy Award Winning Producer, Scott Sternberg, and Andrew Firestone from "The Bachelor" are also apart of the show.

Seduce a Celeb is leading the way by being an online first! The online audience actually becomes part of the program through the submission of user videos!!! It is so much easier, and better, than sitting in front of your TV and calling/texting in to some channel. Seduce a Celeb really lets you become part of the action!

Go to now, to watch all of the hilarious Free videos at today! There are some really funny ones, like Denton Rose, one of the top contestants right now! If you think this is funny, you have to check out the rest of them at!

Laura's graduation!

It was great to go home! I missed not having Josh with me, but it was great to get to be at Laura's High School graduation! I can't believe how smart she is, either! She was in the top 5 in her graduating class and got a really cool medal and everything. She definitely deserved it!

It is good to be back in Texas with Josh. I am over my morning sickness, so now I can just enjoy my pregnancy:)

The prank of all pranks.. how embarrassing

So, there is this really cool ad agency called .Com Marketing Interactive Ad Agency. I saw that they are having a 10 year celebration and many people are sharing video's with them. I thought I would share a video of a prank we played on a friend.

I have this crazy, but lovable friend, Sanchitha! She is a lot of fun and will do just about anything. Well, knowing this, my friend Shay and I thought we would have a little fun with her. We were playing a simple game of Truth and Dare and we dared her to run around the building yelling "fire." I know it sounds pretty easy and not very funny, but the funny part was that she had NO idea there were about 10 guys around the corner, whom she had a crush on.

SOOOO, Sanchitha takes off yelling "Fire, Fire, Fire" when all of the sudden she disapears around the corner and we hear a *Thud,* the sound of the guys' Xbox falling on the ground and breaking... Sanchitha was SOOOO embarrassed that she not only made a fool of herself yelling "fire" in front of them, but actually ended up breaking their Xbox.

If you can not see the video, simply click HERE to see it, it is hilarious!!!

Crappy weather!

Wow, the weather is really horrible out today. It is fairly warm, but it is very overcast and probably is telling what is to come this afternoon. I heard on the news it is supposed to get really bad out this evening... they said it was going to be the worst storm in the past 2 springs... they even predicted tornados and hail.. sure hope they are wrong about the tornados! we are going to be leaving for a doctors appointment in the morning, so we pray it clears up by then! YUMMMMMM!!!

If you are like my husband and I, you LOVE shrimp! We are not huge seafood eaters, but we love almost any dish with shrimp in it! I found a ton of Seafood Recipes here and they all look great. Our personal favorite is the Cajun Shrimp Stew. I took the time to have my husband make this quick video sharing how easy and great tasting it is.

We leave in the morning!!!!

I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have been on a cruise before, but Josh hasn't.. i do remember it but it was in high school and it was only to 1 place, so this will be much better... not to mention i get to spend the entire time with Josh:) We have a lot planned and we are going down a day early to stay at a hotel, which will be a lot of fun too.

I must say, it is a much needed break... i have been feeling much better but am exhausted and Josh has been in charge of the RA recruitment, so he is ready for a break as well.
