It is Monday Isn't it?!

 .It is Monday Isn't it?! It doesn't really feel like a Monday but it is! Happy New Year's Yall!!  So it's that time again but instead of doing the usual 5 for Five, this week it's our 5goals for 2013!

These lovely ladies
Jenn @ Party of One 
are hosting a New Year's Eve edition of their link up!
but first here is a quick look at last weeks 5forFIVE goals:
1. Workout at Least 3 times!
fail! I did jog twice but no full work outs

2. Send out all 'Nail Mail' &/ Presents

3. Set a Budget Plan
LOL, I didn't even bother. It was my lazy weekend!

4. Go grocery shopping with my cut out coupons !
another fail!

5. Clean my Room! 
most of my polish and all my clothes WERE put away until I had laundry done hahahahah

OK so I haven't done much of my goals that I posted, but I went to work, had a lazy weekend, chilled with family<3 and paid my bills! I did do something!
alright - 2013!!!!
I am determined to do this this week! anyone have a good website preference?
I know its so cliche so have this goal but I am determined!! I have to!
YES I know it's possibly the worst habit I could possibly have! and I am determined to quit! Even if I have to pay to take medications LOL I have to quit for my health, and most def. for my son!
In my situation It's kind of hard to do this..the job part.. but I can't move out OR save money without getting a raise or finding a better job. So I need to go to school and get started with the "process"
currently my car is broke down across the street. I am using my Stepdad's car ... THANKFUL FOR MY FAMILY!.. until I get a new car. But as the process goes, I can't get a new car without saving money which goes back to going to school and getting a better job!

I could name a few a lot more but these are my MAIN ones that I can think of right now. lol
& since I have your attention I wanted to tell you a little bit about things going on at home, Josiah my (just turned) three year old, has just got off the pacifier ! So during the middle of the night he wakes up and starts screaming. He lays down - puts his finger in his mouth and goes right back to sleep! Does anyone have any advice on this situation?! FINGER SUCKING?!? I admit I might have taken the pacifier away too quick.. BUT it was time!!! Who can agree?! He already is so spoiled, with sleeping with me or my mom, still getting his hot cup of milk in the morning and at night, and always, I MEAN ALWAYS leaving the store with something in his hand.... (well that only happens with nana) But anywho... What is some of your advice for spoiled 3 yr olds trantrums and all that good stuff? recommend any goods bloggers?

p.s. you have to head on OVER to Shane @ Whispering Sweet Nothings
This blog post is a must see on New Year's Resolutions, Why we fail? && What we need to do to succeed them!

& another linky!!!

thank you for reading and hope to hear from you lovelies

Social Sunday {+WeekendRe-cap}

Hello There! Happy New Year's Eve Eve!

It's the last Sunday of the YEAR! How is everyone feeling about that?! I'll tell you, I'm just glad to get it over with!  Yes out with the old, and in with the new. I have a few New Year Resolutions (I'll share those for my 5forFIVE tomorrow) I always have at least one ( a few ) resolutions but never go through with it. This year I have to. I am determined! Living situations will change, trying to move out of my mom's house on a $9 an hour paying job is NOT going to cut it, getting healthier, and so forth. On another note ...

It's Social Sunday!!!!
 and Today I'm doing another Link-Up with
It's the First for me and them,
I'm just glad to be joining them also!
Let's Get Social Sunday

Link up and spread the love <3


- Just a little re-cap of my lazy weekend! -

Friday Dec. 28 2012 - I slept half of the day! Working over night shift gets the best of my sleeping habit, thankfully I have a great mother who watches my son and let's me get the sleep I need from time to time! Other then sleeping, I stayed in with everyone and we just lounged around. We did have guest come in that we haven't seen in a long time. They brought their fuzzy pal with them. Isn't she adorable!?
Meet Penny

Saturday Dec. 29 2012 - Was another lounging day. haha What can I say I haven't had a two day weekend in a really long time! I watched My boyfriend play COD all day, watched Netflix, then we went to see the movie "Django Unchained". If you want to see a new movie, this is the one! I loved it! I also did put away SOME of my polishes (listed from 5forFIVE)

and Today, Sunday Dec. 30 2012 - I am at work, tired, bored, and in need of food! LOL I am also in the middle of redecorating my blog thanks for Jess Lynn Creations! I've seen a sneak peak of it, & I am just so excited!

Thank You for reading! Keep in touch. I love new friends! <3 Christin

5 for FIVE

Good Morning Ladies (& Gentlemen) ! 

Merry Christmas Eve!! 

So Today is Monday so I'm starting something new! From what I've seen, you basically give yourself 5 goals to finish in 5 days. So here we go! Linking up so you should too! =)

December 23rd-28th goals

1. Workout at Least 3 times!
I have tried this on many occasions and I can't seem to keep my motivation up! My mom bought a used treadmill the other day and I have already "walked" on it for ten minutes lol. Well let's see if the New Year will give me a 'power up'

2. Send out all 'Nail Mail' &/ Presents
Yes! I'm late! But working 6 days a week is an excuse right?!

3. Set a Budget Plan
I've had this idea in my head for a while now but reading others say it makes me more interested in DOING! hopefully that can be my motivation! 

4. Go grocery shopping with my cut out coupons !
I am always, always, always cutting coupons in my FREE TIME & never use them and go by the plan LOL this time I have to! We are on a budget

5. Clean my Room! 
basically putting my clothes and nail polish away! lol

What's inside your bag?

So I saw Ricci & AunieSause post about "What's in your bag", & since I'm currently in the process of giving my purse to a good friend who has wanted it for so long for Christmas (I'm so nice (&cheap)! haha) so I decided to post about mine! I'm linking up, you should too!

This purse cost me $1.00 at a yard sale! 
It's an Emilie M. bag, and I've had it for almost a year now & it hasn't let me down yet!


 coupons&notes, wallet, make-up, hand sanitizer, nail polish, glasses and contact cases, and toothbrushes from work!
when I emptied it all the way out, here's what was at the bottom, excluding lint and change hahaha
A Watch from Walmart, JC Penney buttons, lotion, combs, pens, and emery boards all from work! & Of course I have to have a snack in my purse!

&& Last but not least, I'm switching to this purse I got for Mother's Day used it a handful of times. Who knows I might even get a new one for Christmas?!

I also wanted to show you what I got in the mail today! 
25 empty nail polish bottles, china glaze, essie, a mini color club, and nail studs! I'm bored at work, I will probably post something by 6 a.m. =)

Fun-to-Eat Snowman Pizza

Roll dough, make snowman and add sauce, cheese and pepperoni.

What you need:

  • Dough
  • 3 1/2 Cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 Cup white flour
  • 2 Tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 Tsp. sugar
  • 1 1/4 Tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 Tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1/4 Cup grated parmesan cheese

Other ingredients:

  • Tomato sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Capers
  • Carrot
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly add water, a little at a time, knead until dough is firm and smooth. Using olive oil, grease bowl and place dough ball in bowl, turning once so all surfaces are oiled. Cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm spot until double in size, usually about 2 hours.
  2. Place dough on a well-floured surface and roll dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out three different sizes to form each snowman, by hand or using pastry cutters. Assemble snowman on baking pan, attaching "balls" by pressing together. Add sauce, cheese and Snowman decorations. Cut pepperoni into scarves, piecing two pieces together, if necessary. Make noses by cutting tiny carrot triangles.
