I'm a grandma!

This is just random thoughts and stuffs from the week since I haven't had a whole lot exciting going on.

I finally got to pick up my new running shoes (Brooks Adrenaline GTS12) yesterday.  Because I bought them so far away, I didn't have the change to test them out yet. I'm going to try to get out with Mabel after work tonight though. Why not get all sweaty and rained on when I plan on taking a shower and getting ready all over again after work anyway? I so wish that these were purple and not pink, but they'll just have to do.
I've spent a lot of time shopping this week. I don't know why, but I just felt the need to spend, spend, spend. Check out the awesome vest I found. Yes, I like Grandma things. Yes, I'll rock them til I probably really am a Grandma, then I'll try to be hip and trendy. I just love this vest, but I can tell you I've gotten some strange looks. Not my fault that people will just not realize that "Grandma" is the new black. (Don't mind Mabel's creepy eyes in the background and my way too cool for me pant leg).
I thought I would share w hat I have to deal with at home. This the my precious BF with his GARGANTUAN fajita salad. Yeah, by the time he's made his I'm half way done with mine. He complains that he can't fit any more on the plate, but just keeps adding more and more. Yeah, he's a keeper.

Yeah, he's just as big of a cheeseball as me. <3
I'm just a rockin my BIC Band in this pic. I am so in love with these things so I had to take a picture and share.
Oh, have I mentioned lately that I'm spoiled? Our one year anniversay is coming up next weekend, but much like me the BF can't keep secrets or wait. I am doing an awesome job. I planned our weekend a month ago and he still doesn't know a single thing. (It's killing me!) So, he bought me a beautiful ring for our anniversary. There is such pretty intricate detail that you can't see in the photo. I'm so excited. This is my sister's birthstone which makes it even more special. Every time I look at it, I feel like I have a piece of her with me. Who else has a BF that awesome and thoughtful? Yeah, didn't think so.

This weekend I have three birthday parties in a row. That's a little much for this Grandma. The one tonight doesn't start until 9:30. 9:30?! Who do you think I am? A 25 year old or something? Yeah. That was my response. That is just rather late for me to be out and about. P-Tone says "Don't worry deary, we'll be able to get our early bird dinner and watch the news." How does he love me? Anyway, this party is for his friend and co-worker at our local casino. I'm not really into casinos, so I'm not thrilled. I tried to stay home, but it didn't work out. I don't really do well around new people. I tend to be quiet and probably seem rude. I guess you could say that I am shy. But once you know me, you would never believe that I could be shy. I'm having a lot of anxiety over going. I hope that it's not too bad.

And tomorrow is my friend Dawn's birthday party at our other local casino (Oh joy! Lucky me!). It should be fun though. I love these girls. They are so much fun and I haven't seen them in a year so I am excited.

Then on Sunday is my Dad's birthday party, which he is throwing himself. It will be good to be with the family even if P has to work and can't be there. Booo! Now that he has his GED I'm hoping he'll get a BIG BOY job soon.

I really don't drink, so that shouldn't be a problem this weekend. I'm just hoping that the food doesn't totally blow things for me. I've not had any self control this week at all. I've ate terribly and I don't even know why I'm eating most of the time. I need to work out a plan to NOT do that. I think that I'm a bit of a binge eater. It's the night time when I'm home alone that kills my whole day. I definitely need to put a plan into action to curb this. I've been reading Runs For Cookies ( and she talks about it and has kind of opened my eyes to having a problem. And reading this stuff is helping me realize that it can be helped. 

That's it for today. I know, big exciting life right here.  Be jealous.
