I'm in a funk today. M is sick. Temp is 102 and will not stay down and she is teething. It is my last week of work and I had to call in sick yesterday and today to stay home with her. I just feel blah. I need something to get me motivated. We leave for vacation in a week. And really I'm not excited. I think I might break my rule and hit up the mall. I have some things to return and buying something will put me in a better mood. Now if only I could get myself off the couch.

I have been painting all weekend long. BARF My body hurts. But I am telling my self great way to burn calories. I am trying to figure out what paint color to use in M room. Her room is going to be very very small. Any ideas? Here is her bedding :
Her room also has pink. What color do you think the room should be? I have been thinking a pale pink or teal? We did get some samples and I think the room will glow in the dark with the 2 we picked. Any ideas will be great! 

It is my last week at work!!! PUMPED finally. I cannot wait to walk out of there on Friday knowing I will not go back. It has been a great 6 years at the company I work for. But time to move on and start a new adventure. 

Have a great week!

Dear Nord.strom,

I know I have not been spending my paycheck with you. I am sorry. I have not bought anything in store during the Anniversary sale. But I did order during pre-sale a $200 face brush that I am in love with. If my husband knew it was $200 I think I might be sleeping in the car tonight. The emails you have been sending me are depressing, so many things I want but do not need. Then on top of that you are calling me every other day to remind me you have not seen me yet. All this is telling me is that I have a shopping problem. Thank you for your calls and emails. I have looked back on my spending and have realized I am a shopaholic and I might need to seek rehab. I am not letting myself within 600 feet of the mall for the next few months.

No job = No shopping

With love (and a huge credit card balance)

P.S. The hub already told me I am not allowed to get a part time job with you because I would spend more than I made in a week.

Time to plan

M will be turning 1 at the end of this year. I am going to start planning her big day early.
1. Because I am a planner and want everything perfect.
2. We are watching money. So I plan on making a lot of the items (I'm not very crafty) and I want to try and find good deals.

 What is the theme?? I give you 1 guess. CUPCAKES!!!!!!! I will keep you all updated on the planning. I'm really excited. I might even post pics of my projects in progress. Get ready for tons of fails.

What is new??

I gave my 2 week notice at work today. YIKES!! I'm very excited to be a SAHM and watch my niece and nephew. It will be challenging but I am up for it. I have always wanted to be a SAHM. I do not want to look back on my life in 20 years and look at M and think I wish I tried being a SAHM when she was young. So in 2 weeks a new chapter of my life will start.....

No motivation

I have not started to work out yet. I really need some motivation. We go on vacation in a month. I have no clothing that fits me. I am just really depressed about it. Then today at work I get HORRIBLE news about a coworker, so what do I do? I go to the vending machine and each candy. I eat my emotions. I just need to push myself to start working out. I know I will benefit in every way possible. But how do I start? Any ideas?
