Friday Favorites {9.9.2016)

So it's been awhile!! Happy Friday friends!!! Here are just a few things that I am loving this week and looking forward to!!

Loving this new music from Lady Gaga!!

I also love Ariana Grande's new single.

This right here. She loves her Daddy so much and it just warms my heart.

We went to Adventuredome in Circus Circus this past weekend for the first time. It's comparable to Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America where they have adult/kid rides and of course food and snacks. Hailey has become a little more brave with rides and she had so much fun. I can't wait until Griffin is a little older to see all the fun they have together.

I'm so excited for fall TV to return. While there are a few shows over the summer that I LOVE, there is nothing quite like FALL TV!!! AND...Nashville is coming back! #Nashies

I know she is a Disney star, but I LOVE Ariana Grande. I also love Jimmy Fallon., so this is a perfect video. I am not going to admit how many times I watched this. LOL.

I want this bomber jacket oh so bad in PLUM! I don't really have a fall/winter jacket for here in Vegas, so maybe that will be my excuse!! Haha. My WANT list is growing though...does anyone know where a money tree is?

We were supposed to go to San Diego for my summer work party, but decided at the last minute not to go. So instead, we will be at home this weekend and watching UFC 203. So excited!!!

Oh yea, football is back baby!!! We bleed purple in our house.

August was a rough month for us in many ways, so I am welcoming September with open arms. Also, it's the start of cooler temps here in Vegas, which is also a plus!

I am looking forward to a few festivals at the end of the month. I'm hoping my friend Katie can come out for the 3 day fest that is Route 91. We were supposed to go last year, but that didn't happen. I'm so excited!!! I think a pair of cowboy boots are in my future!!!

Hope everyone is well and I hope to update soon! Have a great weekend!

Tuesday Tunes {Six Fourteen Sixteen}

Happy Tuesday!

Here is my tune of the week:

It's from Dan + Shay's new album Obsessed, which I LOVE!! It's called "From The Ground Up."

And here's another one because they are just THAT good.

This one is "Obsessed."

Hope everyone has a great week. We are moving at the end of the week/this weekend, we are still in daycare limbo and my sister comes late Friday night!! Woohoo!!!

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Day {Ten Seven Fifteen}

Back on October 7, 2015, Wayne's life changed forever. Really, all of our lives have changed since that day. There's been a lot of ups and downs since that day and it hasn't been easy; and even though he has been criticized for taking the "easy" way out and opting for surgery, he has also helped and been an inspiration to a lot of people as well.

And to all those judgmental jerks?

Shut up.
We don't care.

It saved his life.
Plain and simple.

It has not only helped him become more healthy, but also given him so much more confidence in his everyday life. It has also given our family a new outlook.

So here is some pictures from surgery day and I plan on blogging his progress since then, too.

I hope you enjoy!

Thank you Dr. Tom and Blossom Bariatrics. From the bottom of my Wifey heart.

What's Up Wednesday {Five Twenty-Five Sixteen}

Happy Hump Day Friends!!

1. What we're eating this week...

I made spaghetti this week which is always delicious and a staple in our house.

I also found these split boneless chicken breasts with provolone and asparagus inside. I paired those with corn on the cob. Such a yummy and quick dinner, which is exactly what we need.

I am also planning on making these this week:

2. What I'm reminiscing about...

Our time in Jamaica...

My sister visiting and staying with our kids while we were in was so nice to have her around. I miss my family so much.

3. What I'm loving...

My Influenster Vox Box


4. What we've been up to...

Packing. We're moving in less than a month, so we are in pack mode.

5. What I'm dreading...

Moving. I like going through stuff, purging, packing and even unpacking and putting stuff in it's place. I just don't like the actual act of moving.

6. What I'm working on...

Packing. This is my life right now.

7. What I'm excited about...

Getting into this new house and my sister, Kate, coming to visit mid-June, my parents coming to visit at the end of June, Hailey's 5th birthday next month. All fun stuff ahead.

8. What I'm watching/reading...

I've recently started the Real World: Go Big or Go Home. They lived in Downtown Las Vegas, so I'm excited to see what landmarks or hotels they put on the show. It's probably going to take me awhile to get through this season, but we will see. I also want to watch the new season of The Challenge that started at the beginning of May. 

9. What I'm listening to...

10. What I'm wearing...

I haven't really gotten anything new lately. So it's been the same old things. Ive been wanting to get a pair of the LulaRoe leggings, but have been dragging my feet. I've joined a few FB sites and still don't know how it all works.

11. What I'm doing this weekend...

My Hubby's friend, Adam, is coming into town this weekend, so while they do boy stuff, I will be doing what else...packing.

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...

See #7.

13. What else is new...

We went to the Billboard Music Awards this past weekend. It was fun!

The only other big thing that is going on in our lives is that Green Gramma moved back down to Arizona to live with her sister. So we no longer have her with us. The last year she has been with us she has been such a big help with the kids and around the house.

We are in between daycare situations for Griffin until my sister comes down June 17th. She will be able to watch Griffin after that point until he starts daycare in July. Until then we are having one of our friends down here help.

I can't believe May is almost over. Hope your week is going well.

Friday Favorites [Five Twenty Sixteen]

These are some of my favorites this week:


My favorite dish this week is THIS one!! Seriously, you won't be able to resist these brussel sprouts!!


I also posted about my fave song at the moment! If you want to see the official music video...go HERE! P.S. The FULL album is now out and I can't wait to listen to the whole thing!!!

I love everything and WANT everything on THIS website! Especially this:

Cause it just AIN'T!

We're about half way done with this series and LOVE it!!! I am a huge Sam Elliott fan and was excited when I found out he plays the Father role on this show. Also, can Ashton Kutcher do no wrong?

Anything else new and exciting on Netflix? Or Hulu that you would recommend?

This so fits my month year.

I love THIS article so so so much!

And THIS one brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it!!

My favorite purchase this week is actually a secret. I purchased our Father's Day gift from me and the kids to my Husband. Yes, people I know it's only mid-May, and I'm way ahead of the game. It's the first time EVER that I'm ahead of the game and I hope he LOVES it!!! I haven't said anything to him and the only other person I've told is Hailey. She's REALLY good at keeping secrets about presents. Like REAL good. The only way he will know that I bought something for him is if he reads this blog post. Haha. Or when it shows up to the house in the mail in a couple weeks. I'll post about it after he opens it. Woohoo!!

And no, Wayne, if you are reading this, you cannot open it early. You have to wait for your special day!!

I am so excited to go to the Billboard Music Awards this weekend!!! I've never been to an awards show, so this is a first! Woohoo! Brit Brit is opening the show!!

We watched this movie last weekend. It was WAY better than what I thought it was going to be. We watched it as a family and even though there is some risk-ay scenes that we had Hailey close her eyes for, she was glued to it and absolutely loved it.

I was so excited to see this yesterday:

Anybody else excited for this revival?

We took Griffin swimming for the first time last weekend. It was warm outside, so we decided to try. He LOVES bath time, but obviously the pool is different. But he LOVED pool time, too!

That's pretty much all for this week! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
