So I got a new computer

:] :] :] :] :]

And I'm feeling very excited about it!

First of all, it has an "i" key & DOESN'T choose to turn off every 3 seconds.

Because of that, it is lovely!

It is a dell (dude, I got a dell...what?) and I'm very happy with my purchase. I decided that I wanted a desktop, and I'm happy with that decision. I'm feeling stoked. It's been a weekend of newness. My scraproom looks waaaaaay different but is not totally updated yet so I'll hold off on pictures.

I just got the computer on like an hour ago, but I do promise more pictures! Mainly because now that I'm back in pc-land, I understand how my computer works, so it will be much easier to do things like post pictures.

So, that is all, just thought I'd share my excitement :]

{& special thanks to Scott for getting the computer all set up for me and spending lots of time helping me with my scraproom- I love you!}

and just because I think he's funny...

clumsiness & a new low

so in the past 3 days, i've:

*fallen down the stairs
*slid in the shower...and sort of fell out...twice
*whie moving furniture, I knocked over a table and it landed on my foot, ummmmm OW
*other stumbles/running into things/etc. like 8907197 times

sooooo i'm feeling pretty clumsy. i don't know what the deal is, but my body is kind of hurting.

i've reached a new reality tv low. I will seriously watch pretty much anything reality, but I thought I had some standards.

but today I watched Rock of Love.... and I might be hooked. Within one episode, I was soooo drawn in to the drama. Yikes...and I weirdly think Bret Michaels is kinda tight. But not as handsome as my fiance :) (oh yes, we looked at a potential reception site for our wedding, it was LAME. BUT, we do have a great lead with another site!!!)

In other news, we got lots of things for my scrap room at IKEA this weekend. I'll post pictures once it is all set up, I'm feeling pretty excited about.

Gotta go, Flavor of Love is on...

hope you had a lovely weekend + easter

I did lots of spring cleaning and made this card for Scott's aunt who had the family over for brunch. I felt crafty last night, which I welcomed because I love when I get into creative mode. I will be posting more projects in the very near future. For more pictures of my new beloved (Biscuit), check out

The only problem is...

Biscuit chooses to pant. A lot.

Yes, I know she just needs a drink. But seriously, its 3AM and she starts panting in my ear. Loudly. Being a good mother, I get out of bed and take her to get a drink. Which totally wakes me up. Now I'm blogging and she's soundly asleep next to me, not panting. I'm jealous of her. I would love to be sound asleep, but alas.

Maybe this is just a fore-taste of what it will be like to be a mama to a baby.

This post seems very lame, but its 3 AM, this is what you get.

Now I must go watch infomercials, because despite the fact that we have 391879875 channels, thats whats on.

The Results Are In...

Biscuit's Middle Name has been decided on.

Introducing, for the first time in public...

Biscuit Janet Livesay


We decided since Sugar is Sugar P. Livesay (a la Alex P. Keaton), we should have Biscuit's name resemble Michael J. Fox, thus, Biscuit J. Livesay.

We really aren't obsessed with Michael J. Fox. Even though we have named two dogs after him. Sort of.

Today is Scott's birthday! Yaaaaaaay I hope I make it great for him. We've had lots of fun already and its only 11:49 AM.

Have a great-rest-of-your-weekend!

Introducing: Biscuit _______ Livesay

:] We still haven't come up with a middle name but we've considered "Gravy" and "Magellan."

She is a sweet, sweet girl and fills my snuggling void (Sugar is pretty much against snuggling) and Scott only wants to snuggle SOME of the time. Biscuit will snuggle with me every hour of the day!

AND, she's a good girl. She pooped outside for the first time today. I know that is a random fact to throw into cyberspace, but well, we are excited. And she smells (in a good way) like fritos.

Tag! My turn!

Tag. I'm it!
I have been tagged by my bff Laura C. Stoller. So, I shall play.
But first, I do want to share that we have welcomed a new member to our family! She is a pug, and she's adorable. I feel like I'm cheating on Sugar, but I adore this dog. The two of them seem to get along ok, but are still hesitant around each other. We just got her last night. I promise to post a picture in the next couple of days!

Back to the tag: To those bloggers who I tag, link to your tagger (me!) and post these three rules on your blog:

1. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some fun.
2. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names and links to their blogs.
3. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Now for my seven fun facts!

1. I had fangs in middle school. I was very unfortunate. Thank God for braces and grandparents that took pity on me!

2. I don't like cartoons. I don't feel like I can relate to them.

3. I have wanted to be the following professions in my life: Police Officer, Teacher, Lawyer, School Principal, Radio DJ, DJ at a ballpark, School Psychologist and finally... Social Worker (done).

4. Scott and I both drive hyundais and we love them. Scott's parents are the higher class version of us because they both have toyotas. We also both used to work at Subway. And we've both been engaged before. And we're both awesome...

5. Beans and water chesnuts make me ill just by thinking of them. I'm huge into food texture, and that just doesn't work for me.

6. I would like to go golfing this summer.

7. I've recently began to think that I seriously have adult adhd. I have a hard time sitting still- I always want to be doing something with my hands which is one of the main reasons I started knitting. I feel like I have 20980986 thoughts in my head a minute. I took an adhd quiz online (which I know means that it is automatically valid :) but it said I had a mild case of it. But still, A CASE OF IT! That would also explain why I get started on 8 million projects and find it impossible to finish any of them.

That is all.

I choose to tag...

Erin Frank
Laura Isaacs

I don't know 5 other people that havne't already done this, so that is all. I also don't get links, so there aren't any. Maybe someday.

I'b Sick

Yucky. I haven't been sick for some time, and today its hitting me (at least the beginnings of it). Sore throat, runny nose & draining and a tiny bit of nausea. So I'm talking all nasally because thats how I roll. I'm spending the evening on the couch hoping that a little bit of extra rest will go a long way. Scott is super at taking care of me & he's currently cooking me dinner. What a fantastic man I have.

By the way, I love King of Queens...especially Jerry Stiller. I wanted to post a picture that I've taken, but blogger hates me right now.

"I don't want to die without scars"- Fight Club

I (very randomly) really like this movie. It is very weird to me, because I hate gore and this is definetely a goreyish movie.

But I just thing this movie is so crazy and interesting and inspiring in the weirdest way.

(We are watching it as I write).

But the above quote is my fave from the movie, I think. It represents raw human emotion, and I don't want to die without scars either. I want people to see the risks I've taken, the emotions I've felt, the realness that has existed in my life. I don't want anyone to ever think that I haven't battled through my life. Yes, I think I've got it so, so, so good and I know that. But getting here hasn't been easy, and I still have problems in my life right now. It bothers me a lot that people don't talk about those hard things in life much, like we are afraid to admit that our life is not perfect. I never ever want to live that way. I want to feel all the emotions that come with life, good and bad. Because to me, that is human.

So there I am. That is where I stand this bright-blue-sky(ed) Sunday.
