Bras, Lawns & Weddings

This weeken was awesome for a plethora of reasons.

Friday night I went shopping and bought a dress. This may be a regular ritual to many of you, but not to me. I went to Forever 21 and got a bangin' dress for a mighty $17.80. We kind of ran out of time that night so it had to put on hold until Saturday.

Saturday morning we went to Bruce & Lucy's house and we helped in the garden. We pulled up all the old squash plants. And then I came home with more strawberry plants, a chinese grapefruit tree and an orchid. This made me very happy =D Happy to help and come home with so many awesome goodies!

After the garden adventure we went to a meeting for the Christmas Program. Both girls are in it this year, along with Cousin Rachel. All 3 girls are ecstatic.

After the meeting we swung by the mall. I was lookin' all sorts of trashy from the gardening. Dirt caked on my legs. Dear Heavens! Sorry folks, I needed accessories. I was horrified by the terrible service I got at Reflection. HOWEVER, I was in a time crunch so I had to overlook that. So I got awesome wedges for my dress and boots for Carrie Underwood. THEN, I went up to Victoria's Secret and perused, not sure if I was getting anything, but I DID reallyyyyy need a decent strapless bra. Since Josh and I sold everything when we were trying to get out of debt and started to be uber-picky, I go the cheap route on just about anything I can. But I am learning that there a few things that you get what you pay for. One of those things is haircuts, another are bras. I am in awe of my new bra. It is a multi-way bra and when I wore it as a strapless, I did NOT have to tug it back up into position, EVER. AH-mazing. Well, I really needed this bra in 'nude', but they only had 'cheetah'...hmmm...what a dilemma, well the lady found me a 'nude' bra of a slightly different style almost as equally awesome. 'cheetah' va-va-voom or 'nude' necessity? Ugh. I let Josh pick. He said "both, honey." SCORE! Then I gathered me up some 5 for $25 britches and got in line a happy camper. Ladies, if you haven't treated yourself to some fancy undergarments recently, I suggest you do. I'm positive my self-esteem has jumped a couple notches!

After being completely spoiled, we went home to get ready for Jarrod & Kelly's wedding! We had such a blast. We caught up with so many people we haven't spent time with in a long time. Jarrod and Josh are long time friends, but I had never met Jarrod's parents or his little brother. The whole family was awesome and welcoming. Kelly made a stunning bride and Jarrod cleaned up SO nice! They were super cute! Ashton and I both agree the DJ was phenom and will definitely need to hire him for something...not sure what exactly! In the video montage, there was an old picture of Eric, Jarrod and Josh! Adorbs! So we made sure to take a pic of the 3 of them together that night! What a handsome trio! I'm sure Ashton and Kelly would agree! There were some slightly awkward moments LOL, but we're going to focus on the positive! hahaha :) I got a lovely picture with 'the Situation' err I mean Corey right after the not so private dance he gave...LOL and there's a pic of Tiana and I and 'the bump'! I seriously could go on and on about how much fun we had and we are def going to be getting together with these peeps more often!

Sunday we went to church and just had a relaxing day altogether. I got to spend a good portion of the day just chatting with Josh. It's seems so few and far between where we can just talk without being interrupted every 6 seconds so that was golden. Later we hung out with Lauren Kathryn and let the kids run around at the Crossings. We also started our Christmas shopping, that wasn't the plan when we left the house, but we saw some things we couldn't pass up, bc they are perfect for 'mystery recipient''s A &B. LOL then we came home and brainstormed about Christmas and the budget and gifts! I'm very excited!

Now, before we get carried away with Christmas talk, we need to discuss fall. Especially since it's making it's official debut tomorrow, in which I will be ringing in with a homemade pumpkin pie tonight! You, too, can have some of my delectable pie for the low price of $13 OR pumpkin loaves for $6 or 2 for $10. I will deliver for the low price of $2 (I have some limitations to this LOL)!

I will be doing this throughout the season for leisure, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Don't let the holidays go by without having some of Priscilla's Pies! I gotta pay for them Christmas gifts some how! haha :)

My title is "Bras, lawns & weddings" and I forgot the lawn part. I mowed the lawn today. Go me! Well, truth be told, I did it for selfish reasons. I did it to get my compost pile started and then the dadgum bag didnt catch any of the clippings! Josh is gonna rake some up for me. What a peach!

I'm so happy and content. I'm always content bc I know God is in control, but I am just so happy. He's been so good to us and keeps our motor running constantly, in spite of the negative nancy's & debbie downer's that are around us. We are RIGHT where we should be right now!
