I was reading BFF's blog and realized, I too, have long forgotten about my blog. I have been so busy with school. We are having finals this week and I think my teachers want me to jump of the "back porch." As you can tell I haven't, but I have been tempted.
Now, on to Miss Piggy. Our niece celebrated her 2nd birthday last weekend. Tiffany suggested we make her birthday cake as a way to cut cost!! I thought it was a splendid idea. I was not to confident with my cake baking abilities as I have only been to 3 cake classes. I wouldn't categorize myself as an expert or a "natural." So, I decided we must have a practice run.. only 20 bucks at the grocery store to make a PRACTICE cake that only I devoured like the fat kid I am.
So, anyway, I get over to Ben and Tiffs around 8 on Friday night to make the real cake. I immediately get started. Things are going great. We have made the cakes, let them cool, leveled and stacked them, AND iced them. We accomplished all that in 2 hours. I am thinking I am the bomb.com.. Sorry I had to throw that in there!! After all this is when I think things started to go down hill. Somehow or another, it was 4:30 AM when we finished that stupid cake. I was delerious. Miss Piggy didn't get any real legs b/c her ears and sides took forever, literally. Anyway, so here is my creation. I must say, it's a pretty good-looking cake for a first time pig cake maker.
Also, make note. I am now obsessed with donkeys. I heard one a few weeks ago and I love it.

So today, I am in chem lab and this guy I am an "aquantaince" of breaks a test tube on the counter. Let me preface this story by saying, he is a really nice guy, but not the "coolest" of the college kids. We are in chem and chem lab together.. so he saw me in the library one day, sat down at the table and started chit chatting away. He told me he has OCD and has to make noises and count things..he has trouble with school work, yada yada yada. So, back to lab today... he breaks the test tube and I am sure he is embarassed. Me, being the ever so kind person I am, didn't make fun of him, which I am sure you all thought I did... NO, i head on over to help him clean up. I begin gathering up the pieces and trying to sweep them into a pile. Instead of saying thanks, he walks off. WALKS OFF. What the eff? I try to help you b/c I feel sorry for you b/c you said you had OCD and you have a hard time concentrating, etc. etc. and then you leave me to clean up your mess. Yeah, I don't think so buddy. So, then the teachers walks over and thinks I have broken the test tube and she proceeds to tell me it's ok and people break them all the time. Of course, my partners are laughing hysterically b/c I tried to be nice and homeboy leaves me to tend to his mess. In true Haley fashion, when I finished sweeping the pieces into the dustpan, I brought them over to him and told him I finished cleaning up his mess and put the dustpan in his face. I'm over being nice..

Getting the garbage out

This video is for your viewing pleasure.. Meet Chris Tony.. Watch Chris eat the pasta from the reception...He ate every bite this way... and this was not a joke..
This video was shot right before he attempted to make out with the bartender thinking this would sway her to give her number to him. This tactic did not work, so he thought if he tried to slow dance with her behind the bar, she would then want to go home with him. Since none of these tactics worked, he stood behind her and licked her ear..... Needless to say, she was tempted by the ear licking, but opted to clean up the bar area and head to the house... probably as fast as possible..
Us at the fair!

After successfully making enough icing to fill my bathrub, I iced my cake. Then, I took it to class and we decorated it with a rainbow and clouds. I wrote Happy Birthday on it and an age (which I won't reveal) for my dear friend and co-worker Colleen and then we helped her celebrate in style.
For this week, it's cupcakes with clowns on them! How fun! I can't wait. Maye one day, I will seriously post pictures. Until then people, just use the imagination!! (*update: I finally put the pics up.)

Good thing The Bachelorette comes on tonight.. otherwise who knows what would happen. We (Kati, Karen and myself) have decided if Deanna picks Jesse we are gonna cry and call in to work tomorrow so we can be forlorn all day.

Now, I have gained so much weight, my wedding rings are tight on my fingers. When I try to take them off, they cut my finger, so that's a plus. I am really excited about the weight and the cut fingers.
I also rammed my finger into the car this morning and thought I broke it. I almost started to cry, but I really didn't have time for all that... so I sucked it up and got over it. It still hurts though.
Then, I tripped the other day and stubbed my toe while at work. It's a common occurrence to hear me say, "I can't walk." It's also a true statement I have decided.
Last but not least, my toe is healing from where I dropped this toilet paper holder on it. I did cry about this. It was bleeding all over the place. I seriously thought I cut my tendon. I still have a scab on it. Neosporin is coming in handy.
So, in about 7 days, I have managed to almost kill myself several times. Who knows what the rest of the week brings... but I say "BRING IT."

She writes for http://www.dailycents.com/ about Beauty. Katie, the master of beauty if I must say so myself, writes about all the things we women need to know about our skin and bodies. You name it, she writes about it. From sunscreen to bras, she makes you wanna run out and try whatever she is talking about in that days article. I am not kidding. She may have cost me a hundred bucks. I go into Ulta and relish in all the beauty products I now know about due to DK. I love it. I love going and just hanging around the store like a thief. I read the labels and check out all the available colors. It's ridiculous. Sometimes I leave empty handed, which I know the cashier chicks probably think I stole stuff b/c I had been in there so long and left without spending a dime.
Anyway, I just wanted to give a little shoutout to the Deenster and let all of my 2 friends who check out my blog to be able to take advantage of all the great knowledge she shares with us after her in-depth research.
Get to checking out the site..(go the right hand side of my blog and click her link, DK the beauty blogger)

For the last or shall I say almost 2 years we have been married, I don't think we have ever put a bottle of wine on the thing. So, I made the executive decision to start a wine collection. Sometimes when I go to the grocery store and I feel like perusing through the aisles I may grab a bottle, never two. We have now accumulated a total of 4 bottles. This is record breaking, otherwise I would not be blogging about this huge accomplishment.
I pick bottles on color, label and shape never year, name or price.
Even though our wine rack is filling slowly, I still prefer Riunite if you must know the truth. It is a lovely red wine that I like extremely cold.Yeah, I know you aren't supposed to drink red wine cold. However, it is approximately $8.49 at the local Phillips gas station in Royse City for a huge bottle. What a steal? It has an awesome screw cap. No need to bring your handy bottle opener. A strong pair of hands will do the trick. There is even a nice spew noise when you open the bottle.
Things don't get any better than a nice glass of cold red screw cap Riunite wine and my newfound love for the need to complete my wine rack task.

Anyway, so they talk this crazy nonsense about your root shakra and namaste and dabandeste.. and some other lingo I know nothing about and prefer to keep it that way. I just enjoy the fact that I am stretching my body and it feels absolutely incredible. It's like you just get 1 1/2 hours to yourself... no music, no talking, no nothing... just you and your body and your sweat running like a faucet.
So, after yoga, I HAD to go to the grocery store. I am talking absolutely not a drop of food at our house. As much as I didn't want to go b/c my shirt was soaking wet, black eye make up was running down my face, and I think I even had butt sweat.. I went and people stared and I just smiled awkwardly as I picked out my healthy food!!! Yeah, I am trying to "become" healthy. It's hard work and expensive, but I know it's gonna pay off. I am resisting the syrupy sweet tea in the kitchen right now. I did enjoy strawberries w/o sugar, grapes and an apple this morning. Will be moving on to a wheat bread turkey sandwich for lunch... then we shall see how things go from there.. It might get crazy.

I went to see SATC!!!! I absolutely loved it. Will be purchasing it as soon as it is availabe on DVD. I will add it to my collection... BFF and I used to text each other and say we were going to New York when we were about to watch the show. That's it.
Now, Josh and I went home this weekend and totally went to Jubilee Jam. By far, JJ is one of my most favorite things to do. I love downtown Jackson. I know it's ghetto and I know the crime blows.. but come on.. JJ is amazing and I want J-town to thrive and survive.. so we went to support to local hoo haa. I definitely enjoyed ZZ Top and my favorite, Robert Randolph. AMAZINGGGGGG.
Saturday, we headed on down to Crystal Springs for a friend of mines wedding. It was lovely. A little warm outside, but a good time indeed and just like I pictured a Jenny Alton and Doug Price wedding. We headed back to "town" for more of Jubilee Jam fun. BFF, hub, my hub and Claire without her hub went to kick it downtown with Robert Randolph and I mustn't forget, Three Six Mafia. Yeah, we threw gang signs and what not and took pics. I will attempt to get those up ASAP.
Father's Day went down at 143 McCarty with my family. My brother's gonna be a new dad come January, so we got to celebrate dad, new dad and sadly missed grandad. ( I did get to call my other g-pa via phone though)
OK, so work is now calling. I know this blog was just full of good times... til next time...

Today is the day 3 years ago I met Josh!! We met at MB and Andrew's wedding. Who knew 3 years later we would be married and living in Texas. My how time flies. It's been crazy, fun, memorable, horrible, lovable, etc. I couldn't picture myself with anyone else. I love being married to him.
Oh and on another note, American Idol comes on tonight. If David Archuleta wins, I might vomit. No, I change my mind, I will vomit.. immediately and multiple times in disgust.

I guess you could say I'm in an emotional stage this week... all worked up over the small things and wondering "How's It Gonna Be?" I know I should just sit back and take it all as it comes, but really, that's a lot harder said than done.
I'm anal. I worry. I plan for the "way too far ahead to even plan" future. I save for retirement. I pay my bills on time every month. I use coupons. I love Dave Ramsey. I even worry about my kids life and I am not even thinking about kids. (that's the sad part)
So, I'm thinking to myself.. "Haley, you should really relax." I guess that's what my prozac is for. I wonder what my life would be like without it? Geez, that's probbaly a blog all in itself.
Oh and this is for Kati..I brought my gym stuff to work today. I am gonna work out. I am not gonna stay for like 3 hours and make myself all sore, but I am gonna work out. Be Proud!!!
So I raise a toast to prozac, relaxing and cheap riunite!

Really, it's getting ridiculous. I go to bed early, that doesn't help. I drink caffeinated tea while at work, that doesn't help. I take iron pills, nope, that doesn't work either. I even take quick naps in the bathroom and it NEVER seems to help me stay awake.
I always seem to wake up right before the 5 pm. Then I am pumped and ready to save the world.
It was so bad today, one of my co-workers asked me a question and I literally fell asleep in the middle of answering it. She then proceeded to ask me, "Are you gonna take a nap right now?"
Yeah, pretty much....
So, now I blog about falling asleep at work in an attempt to stay awake. SAD..people... real sad.
Back to work...

Anyway, he has an "amazing" story and he drove from Pennsylvania to Dallas to play on the radio this morning. They called it the "Freddy Needs Gas tour'" He would play at different stops on his way to Dallas and people would give him gas money.

So here goes.. the blogging days of Haley Windham have begun.
