Nail Polish Swap + video

lala Lists

Earlier this month I participated in Spread the Polish Swap hosted by Carly at Lipgloss and Crayons and Rachel at Lala Lists. This was my first beauty swap to participate in and I really love it. I was paired up with another person and we were to send 2 polishes to each other. Before being paired up, we stated what kind of polishes we liked. I said I liked fun colors. I was paired up with Kristina who said she loved bright colors. I wish I took a picture of what I sent to her...1) bright purple 2) bright pink, but not hot pink and 3) a coraly orange. Kristina I hope you loved them!!!
I got my package from her this week and I am too happy :-)

How cute are those Disney stamps?!!

I decided to do an "unboxing" video cuz y'all know I'm kinda addicted to vlogging right now...

Don't forget to subscribe to my channel for more goodness :-)

Thanks again Kristina!! I am going to do my nails right now :-)

Fitness Friday - Leggies

"It's Friday and I'm ready to sing. Pick up my girls and hit the party scene. Tonight...oh, oh it's alright ummm"

Were you just singing? Heehee, me too! Well lovers it IS Friday!! *cue crazy applauding crowd* Oh and it has been a doozy of a week for me. I was not feeling so good the beginning of this week but am definitely doing better. (And just so y'all know...VonTrapp aka CRAZY SICK LADY aka my MIL for my new followers) got me and the barbarians sick over Thanksgiving weekend). So I haven't really worked out all week. Except for walking the boys to school and then home and then back to school to pick them up and then back home. Only having 1 car is actually pretty awesome in that sense...always working out.
Well today since I feel great, I decided to start back up slow and work out my legs. I mean with all that walking, I know my legs can handle it...or so I thought LOL. It was intense. Good intense. The right kind of intensity to get me back to where I left off.

Dear Cassey...I love you! Love always, my legs

Work those leggies! It's tights, leggings, jeggings season so keep your legs looking FAB!

Fact Is...

Fact is: I didn't over indulge this Thanksgiving weekend but did indulge with pumpkin crisp last night before bed, pumpkin crisp for breakfast this morning, and more pumpkin crisp for lunch too.

Fact is: I HATE the cold..hate is a strong word but yes, I HATE the cold. My island blood runs strong through my body and I am sitting here in shorts and a tank top wishing it was hot and sunny out again.

Fact is: I don't like Christmas songs. I do have TONS of Christmas spirit just not in the song form.

Fact is: I sometimes make my 4 year old son sit in front of me to watch a movie just so I can play with his hair. I can not confirm or deny that I may have put a bow in his hair just to see what my daughter would look like should I suddenly become the virgin Mary and get pregnant.

Fact is: I love black Friday. I used to work in retail and as much as people hated it, I rather enjoyed it. Now as just a consumer, I enjoy it even more. I am a total people starer watcher.

Fact is: I know my 4 year old is a night owl if he takes a nap during the day, but today...I just don't feel good. He has been sleeping on the couch now for almost an hour.

Fact is: THIS is super fun LOL. Check out Nicholl over at Chiffon Diary every Tuesday.

Ayy Ladies...

..Yeah..if you know you bad...yeah...
Oops sorry...I like that song (as raunchy as it is LOL) but I had to get your attention...

I am a part of a fab giveaway that ends in like 14 hours! I've teamed with 4 other beautiful bloggers

to give away all this:

Of course, I am giving away the Jamberry Nail Shields...2 sheets in fact :-) So head over to Frikken Duckie and enter NOW. You have about 14 hours left to enter.

50 question tag - part 1

So a few weeks ago, I was tagged by Jess over at Frikken Duckie, who was tagged by Keena over at Kiss Kiss by K. Lee....2 of my fave bloggy peeps ;-)

50 questions seemed like a lot to do in one video so I broke it up into 2 parts. Boy am I glad I did...the video came out to be exactly 15 minutes because of my great editing skills. The original was almost 17 minutes long but stupid YouTube wouldn't let me upload it as is. But don't worry, you know I left in all the funny parts.

I'm not going to tag anyone just yet. I want to get the 2nd part up first.
P.S. Don't forget to subscribe :-)

Locker Room Talk #1

I have totally caught the vlogging bug. I'm in the middle of editing my vlogging prompt by Mama Kat, but took a quick break to blog.
Since I love vlogging now, I thought I would introduce a new "series." It's called Locker Room Talk. You'll get to see some of the things that goes on inside the locker room and hopefully catch some funny moments too. So just press play already :-)

*Don't forget to subscribe too*

Hopefully I can get this blogging prompt up and 4W up by tonight. Have a great afternoon!

Weekend Attire: Formula 1

If you follow me on Instagram then you already know what I did this weekend. One word...SIMPLE...

(*the jacket I actually wore had a pocket on each side on the chest*)

Weekend Attire: Formula 1

Thanksgiving menu

3 more days until my very first Thanksgiving. I know y'all are like wait, what?! Well this is the first Thanksgiving that I'm cooking EVERYTHING...well I actually bought a pre made turkey. Nothing too fancy...pretty traditional except for the turkey. The turkey in fact is not just a's a turducken! What is a turducken you ask? Well it's a duck, stuffed inside of a chicken and then the chicken/duck is stuffed inside of a turkey :-) In the words of BamBam... DE-WISH-OUS! LOL

But back to it.

So here is everything that I am making. Oh and just so you know, this has been very overwhelming...the picking of what exactly to cook and what recipes I should "follow."

turducken...actually got one from a local store that prepares, seasons and stuffs them.

green bean casserole...sorta following this recipe which I LOVE!

mashed extra special, yummy buttery mashed potatoes I make for dinner :-)

sweet potatoes in caramel sauce...a little twist on candied yams or regular sweet potato casserole

sweet potato pie...followed this recipe but I'm actually making the pie crust

mac and cheese...I already have a recipe in my head for this :-)

stuffing...not too sure if I'm going to make extra stuffing or not (the turducken is stuffed with cornbread dressing already)

deviled eggs...

mmmmm I'm getting hungry! LOL. What are y'all doing for thanksgiving? Cooking anything extra yummy? Tell me :-)

Fitness Friday - We're going TOPLESS

Goood Moooooooorrrnnniiiiiiiing! Too much? Heehee. It's FRIDAY! Day 1 of Formula 1 weekend. But before all that I thought I would bring back.....

That's right folks! Thanksgiving is less than a week away. And then comes holiday parties. And then Christmas. And then New Year's. You need to get into a routine NOW.

If you follow my other blog, you know I love BexLife and BodyRock and Blogilates. Today I'm bringing you the workout that I actually did this morning. Like literally maybe 10 minutes ago. It's from the bikini blaster series from this past summer. Bikini season is year long in my eyes ;-)

Get of your booty and get topless!!! But if perhaps you may be at work or at a coffee shop or something, wait till you get home ;-)

Friends and Formula 1

Today I am thankful for a friend of ours, Cox. 

Cox is in Afghanistan right now working. On Tuesday, he posted the following on his FB wall...

I would have gladly paid him for the tickets for a chance to go to the sold out, opening weekend at the Circuit of the Americas. But nope. He didn't want any money for them. Next thing I know, I am getting a text from Big Daddy saying that we're going to Formula 1 this weekend. Wait, what?!!! 2 donations to 2 of the charities that he mentioned and we were all set up :-) Oh plus one oh so over stuffed care package as well.

Thank you Cox! The barbarians are so super am I. You are such a great person. That is probably one of the grandest gestures I've ever seen by someone I am close to. We have a huge goody box full of "american" goodness with your name on it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

The 4W - my natural disasters

So today I linked up with Mama Kat's vlogging workshop. Which in turn prompted todays 4W...

This my friends, which you probably already know, is a hurricane. I've actually experienced 3 hurricanes in my life. (I don't count Sandy because I, Texas, wasn't directly affected by it)

WHO: (heehee) Hurricane Iniki, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita


WHEN: Hurricane Iniki - September 11, 1992
Hurricane Katrina - August 23, 2005
Hurricane Rita - September 24, 2005 

WHERE: Iniki hit the island of Kaua'i but I was living on O'ahu at the time. We got a ton of rain and crazy wind, but no destruction like the island of Kaua'i
Katrina and Rita both hit Louisiana. I was living in Shreveport at the time. Shreveport is the northern most city in Louisiana. TONS of rain and wind. Lost power for a couple days, our pool was ruined, our yard flooded to our back patio. I also didn't get married on the day I was supposed to either--->Check out the vlog below for the deets. 

You totally have to link up every Wednesday with Mama Kat! It was a ton of fun! And, because I like it so much, I'm turning 4W into a weekly link up as well :-)
