Friday Confessional

I am linking up with Aubrey for Friday confessional and man do I need it this week!

I Confess....
It has been a little hard to concentrate this week at work since we all heard the news about my daddy's business partner but we are all staying positive now and that is a good thing!

I Confess...
I do love my job but sometimes some of my clients are major pains especially when I have to give bad news.  I hate getting fussed at for something I can't control but it is part of the job I guess. 

I Confess...
I have not been working hard enough on getting my weight off the past month or so.  I am going to have to get back on the wagon because I am going to start looking at wedding dresses in March!!!!  So I need to start busting my butt again!

I Confess....
I LOVE MY HOUSE!  I feel so at home there and I just love everything about it.  I also kinda like that Allen is on 2nd shift because he can take pepper out before he leaves and then I can when I get home and if I have a girls night with my bestie I don't have to worry about her making messes!  And I get to clean and pick up without having to worry about disturbing anyone else.  

I Confess...
I am super pumped about my Scentsy party tomorrow with the girls!  Then we are having a Co-ed Party afterwards for whoever wants to stay!  I have to admit I am ready to have so many parties at our house!!!!! And I am going to try my hardest to remember to take pictures. 

I Confess...
I have been down this week so last night after a rough afternoon trying to help a client...I went for some retail therapy at Old Navy.  I really want to find some jeans to fit me well but I cannot seem to find any that work for me.  I bought a lot of stuff and today I am returning a lot of stuff back.  I thought a sparkle cardi that I got was cream and when I got it home it was light pink!!!  I do not think so no pink for this girl.  My favorite purchase was this lovely belt.

This is going to be a different post but man this year has thrown some crazy turns.  Some good, some bad...  My dad's business partner (and my direct boss) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year.  She is 48 years old and has always been a health & exercise nut.  So when she was having some issues none of us thought that it would ever be the "worse case" scenario that the doctors painted.  She went through the "wipple" surgery and chemo brilliantly she was even told last month after her CT scan she was cancer free.  She went last Tuesday for a follow up CT scan and found a spot on her liver.  Yesterday she had some other test done and got her results today.  The results were grim!  The cancer has spread in just 3 weeks and was getting bigger.  So she is starting chemo not to cure her but to prolong her life which the doctor gave her a year.  I am just so in shock.  I am a believer and I know that everything happens for a reason but sometimes you wonder why...This woman has a 24 year old son in dental school and a 16 year old daughter in high school.  I just cannot understand why things happen the way they do and I know God is always in control and HE is the only one that knows but still why.  I have become so close to this woman I use could not stand and now she is like a 2nd mother to me.  I know that He heals and He will protect her.  I just hope that anyone that is reading this to remember TELL the people you love the most you love them!  HUG the people you love!  Never take anyone for granted because in a flash any of us can be gone.

I am going to do better!

 I have been an absolutely terrible, terrible blogger.  There are no excuses but life has been a little insane lately.  First off,  I was the wedding coordinator for my bestie and make sure her wedding went off without a hitch.
This is not from her wedding but from our double date to dueling pianos!!! I really like the picture though :) 

My house has gone from this

To this (and I love it)

We are all moved in and now I am ready for some parties and diy projects. I will be doing better blogging because with the holidays coming up and my wedding next year I will have LOTS to talk about.  I am very excited because I am having a scentsy housewarming party Nov. 16th with the girls then whoever wants to stay the guys will be coming back and we will grill out :) Also on the 23rd I am going to my very first Trans Siberian Orchestra concert with Deana (my dad's business partner) and her daughter Miranda (who is also in love with Katy Perry like me but she is 16)!  Allen and I are also talking about hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our new house this year!! I am looking forward to that as well. Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!!
