Peed in my pants

Remember yesterday how I told you I was going to meet up with a bloggy friend?
Well, my friends... we met, we love, we are awesome.

It was so much freaking fun.  Best way to describe the night:
  • Sat in a shit ton of traffic on the dam parkway trying to get to race packet pick up location. GRRRR
  • Nikki was so kind to get back on line after picking up her stuff because I still wasn't there.  She's awesome.
  • For about five seconds, we got to hug Beth!!!!  Bloggers unite!
  • I heard that song that is usually in the movies when two people are running through fields to go hug each other... you know which one I am talking about right?  Good... well, yeah that song was totally playing in the background when our eyes met each other's awesomeness!!!!! 
  • She is FUNNY... funny like me.
  • My sis-in-crime joined us.  Even more awesomeness added to the group.
  • We ate at a diner.  That's what we do in Jersey... eat at diners with neon lights.  We fist pump too.
  • After a sweet girl gave us the simplest directions (make a right and go down you will see diner on right hand side), I got in my car and GPS.  The GPS lady told me I would be there in 0 mins.  TRUTH. I know, I'm weird.
  • We ordered food from a waiter who had no enthusiasm to be walking around let alone living.  This dweeb, yeah I said dweeb, was so monotone.  No smile. We tried to get him to crack up a bit. Nothing. I feel bad for him. WOMP for you dweeby waiter.
  • We ate... I STUFFED my face with a burger.  It was weird, my burger had a slice of cheese on the top and bottom of the bun. Weird.
  • we laughed like nobody's business.  Nikki got to hear my giggle of death.  She only heard  a snippet.  She might be horrified when it's in it's full blown glory. You watch out Nikki, it WILL make you pee your pants.
  • Have you seen that show on TLC about the gypsy girls?  No, google it. I"ll wait.
  • ..........
  • OK.  So, we saw one of those girls in good ole NJ.  She looked like she was 12 with the makeup of a tramp on . Yeah, I went there. tramp.  Her outfit looked like she was a bumblebee. NO JOKE. sads for bumblebee gypsy.
  • We left the diner around 11:30.... Nikki gets up at 4:30am... I have no idea how she did it, but she made it to work today. YOU GO GIRL. I dragged myself to work. STILL have no make-up on either. womp
  • We took NO pictures of us together, but of each other.  You probably saw on our Instragram and Tweets.  You're welcome.
  • Nikki and Sis-In-Crime
Such a fun night!!!!!!  Can't wait for the next one.

And no, none of us ACTUALLY peed in our pants.  At least I don't think so. Oh Snap!
Hopefully we will find each other in the mass of 7,000 people at the Color Run on Saturday. And then take some crazy pictures.  Be jealous.

xoxo Bloggy peeps.

I am sads because Jersey Shore is cancelled. WOMP

So, the Jersey Shore is cancelled. 

Yes, it's a shitty show and ridiculous and all that jazz.  But, let's face it, it was freaking hilarious.  I enjoyed it.
Maybe more because it reminded me of all those high school people who act the same way.

The war going on twitter defending the show is even more entertainment.  I won't sit here and defend the show.  It's wrong, it's horrible. But it's their life and they are choosing to do whatever they want with it.  Who are WE to judge them on THEIR choices?

But, some people on twitter are saying, "Thank goodness Jersey Shore is cancelled.  Should have been cancelled a long time ago. Horrible show with no respect."

Um... clearly you are not a fan of the show.  The beauty of TV is that you don't need to watch everything that is on it.  You are not at ALL forced to watch it.

With that in mind, if you don't like/watch the show, then why are you so happy it's off the air?  Why does it even matter to you?????  I just don't get it.

I feel bad because this person is now being attacked by other tweeters.  They do have their right to their own opinion.
The kicker, I will assume one of the tweeters knows them personally, and shot out "you watch Real Housewives. That's a shitty show too and in the same genre."

Response: "Real Housewives is a much classier show and is nothing like the booze filled cursing show that is Jersey Shore"

It's the same shit people.  SAME SHIT.  It's just GROWN ass FAKE woman showing off their "riches" while not caring for anyone else. Seriously, you will watch that but put down Jersey Shore?  Ha!

Now, I never really watch Real Housewives, besides the few times there is a re-run on TV and there is nothing else to watch, to me, it's the same type of show.  A shitty train wreck that you just can't stop watching.

So to end this post, I am sad that Jersey Shore is cancelled. I was a loyal watcher. It made me laugh for the hour its on. 

No worries, I won't JUDGE you for the shows you watch.  Because you know, I am not God.

Side note: I have heard so much about this Honey Boo Boo show... I am so intrigued to watch it, but I know that once I start, I may not be able to stop.  Any of you watching it? The latest I heard in twitter land and blog land was about gnats under toes.  EEEWWW.

Bloggy Friends Meet!!!!!

Y'all, today I get to meet Nikki from My Life My Way!!!!! Like, I get to meet her in real life, like FACE TO FACE, CARA A CARA (spanish).

I am so excited.

YAY!!!!!  We are meeting up today down in Shrewsburry, NJ to pick up our race packets for The Color Run we are both going to be doing on Saturday.  So, it was the PERFECT opportunity to meet!!!!!

But it's funny, because it doesn't feel like awkward or anything because we chat all the time via blog, twitter, facebook, even text (she thinks I'm that cool enough!).

I am so excited though because Nikki is hilarious AND she doesn't think I'm a cornball. Well, maybe she does but she's OK with it so yeah. 

So I told her I was going to show up wearing a gown.  I think I may throw in a tiara in there too... you know, for good measure.

But what we really made so happy that I met her through bloggy land was because of this tweet:

Nikki ‏@frogginainteasy

@NewlywedGiggles TONIGHT TONIGHT TONIGHT! Cant wait to meet your face TONIGHT! #peeinmypantsexcited

She wrote "\peeinmypantsexcited".  HOW FREAKING AWESOME SHE IS. I take that as a HUGE compliment.  Like, if I can make you pee in your pants, I must be pretty dam awesome. #WINNING

You are all fools if you don't follow her on her blog and twitter. Seriously, she's so freaking cool, so go now and follow her.

Also, anyone else doing the NJ color run??  Let me know, we can meet! But please don't hold me responsible when we meet if you pee in your pants. Not my fault. Blame my awesomeness.

I will have no hair left after this week

Morning y'all!

Quick update on my freaking out health episode = I am on super duper strong antibiotics three times a day for 12 days.  Let's hope this knocks whatever this bug is in my body before vacation.

This week I'm saying SO WHAT if...
  • I have pinned a whole bunch of recipes on Pinterest and haven't actually tried one of them.
  • I really want to have a hot glue gun in hopes I can become crafty and make our apt dazzle with homemade decor.
  • I had a slice of pizza for breakfast this morning because I am forced to have an antibiotic with food in the morning. Yeah, I ate it. And it was good
  • I went to bed last 10:00pm. I felt like poo.
  • My boss is going to make me pull out my hair with all of these last minute projects that need to get done before I leave for vacation.  GRRRRRR.
  • I haven't even thought about guest posts or scheduling post while I am on vacation. EEEEK.
  • I didn't cook dinner for two days in a row this past week. WOMP
What you are you saying So What to?

Yesterday at Costco, hubs asks me what's wrong with my chest.

I say, I just scratched, that's all.

Fast forward to today - rash is all over my chest creeping it's way on my arms and back. I feel like I am getting sick today too.. super fatigued.

Turn on FREAK out mode.

Hubs yells at me to not freak out that it will probably make it worse... which is probably 100% right. But yeah, I am still freaking out.

I have no idea what this rash is.  Nothing new to eat, no new products, etc. So, can't imagine if it is an allergic reaction to what?!?!?!

So, as I sit here at work patiently waiting for 4:30 for a doctor to see me and tell me I am not dying, please think of me and send prayers that is it is really nothing serious at all.  Hey, you never know.

If you need me, you can find me at my desk googling even more pictures of rashes and spending hours on diagnozing myself with the simple allergic reaction to super serious rare disease that 1 out of 1,000,000,000,000,000 people get.

Yeah, that's how it's going down now.


A rashy, burning, BUT not itchy (thank goodness) freaking out WebMD specialist girl,

Latina VoxBox via Influenster!

So, I signed up for Influenster a while back and told myself, if I get one, I get one. If not, then it's ok.

Well, I got picked for the Latina VoxBox!!!!!!
See below for the goodies I received!

The box was packaged in such a girly cute way! I jumped up and down for glee when I got it. 

 First product I tried was the NYC Liquid Lip Shine lip gloss. I am a full time user of lip gloss so that's why I chose to try this out immediately.  I like it. Nice gloss and stays on longer than I am use to.  Also, my lips were kept moisturized too.

Below I got the Bath and Body Works new Shea Enriched shower gel. My scent was "Paris Amour".  I finally tried this out yesterday and it was great. My skin didn't have that tight feeling after my shower and skin was soft through the night.
Also, I have used the Hawaiian Tropic Silk  Hydration more as a moisturizer and sunscreen.  I like it because I suffer from Rosacea and this really hydrates my skin without the oily feeling and also, I NEED the sunscreen aspects of it too. It smells so yummy too... instantly get a smile when I put it on because it reminds me of summer time memories.
That cute little bag you see is from the Always Radiant Infinite protection pads and tampons I received.  How adorable is that???  Funny how this voxbox came at the perfect time for me to try out the feminine products... seriously, it was about four days later. The pads are super thin... you don't even feel like you have it on.  And they are scented which isn't too overbearing. The tampons were a cute design on them and purple. Seriously, that's what got me.  They make it look pretty! hahah.

Luckily for Veet, I didn't shave my legs.  So when this box came in with the Veet smooth wax strips, I waited a little longer to try it out on the short hair it is suppose to work on.  The only thing I wax on my body is my eyebrows and mustache. This was my first time trying the legs.  For me, it worked good. I just wish the strips were longer so you can use one all the way up and down the leg.  It did take off the "short hair" pretty well considering it didn't have much to tug on.  Also, they come with wipes to use after you wax which helps.

Overall, the products were good to go! I highly suggest you grab yourself one of the NYC liquid lip shine glosses.  That was my favorite out of all of them!

Thank you Influenster!!!  Go on over to their site and sign up!

SO What....

This is my first time linking up.  Seemed appropriate today!

I'm saying SO WHAT IF.....
  • I can't wait till summer is over  because I love the Fall weather
  • if I gained some weight.  I will get rid of it, when my mind finally stops listening to society and just gets moving.
  • I haven't ran a single foot to get ready for The Color Run on September 1st. Yikes!
  • I got super dolled up on my birthday Monday night and wore an outfit that could have been worn at a lounge.  Yeah... I felt great so pffff!
  • I am jealous of all my pregnant friends because I really really really want to have a baby.
  • I am jealous of my friends who have fashion sense. Seriously, I am just going to with the side that says "this is my own fashion"
  • I am looking forward to going to the thrift store to see which items I can score a great deal on. Seriously, some of you bloggers have awesome wardrobes and household stuff because of Goodwill stores... FOR CHEAP! Yeah, I'm jumping on that train.
  • People talk about me behind my back. Go ahead. I don't care. You're talking about me so that means you are thinking of mean and clearly there is something I have that you want.. because if it was the other way around, you wouldn't even bother!
  • I had some hershey kisses for breakfast this morning
What are you saying So What to this week?
Make sure you link up as well!

The Icing on the Cake Last Night

After our dinner on our way home, we were a bit buzzed.  Well, I was. So, we started chit chatting and messing around then somehow, we started talking about the  cake song by Rihanna.  I have heard a million times before.  But never really paid attention to the lyrics.

Here's a snippet:
I know you wana bite this its so enticin nothing else like this ima make you my b-tch.
And its not even my birthday (my birthday) betcha wana put your name on it
And its not even my birthday (my birthday) and hes tryna put his name on it.
Its not even my birthday(my birthday) but he wana like the icing off (the icing off)
I know you want it in the worst way (the worst way)
Cant wait to blow my candles out He want that cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake.

You can listen to the song here if you aren't too familiar.

The lyrics are crazy and my friends were laughing their asses off at me for not knowing the lyrics.
So this started the laughter that wouldn't end. And what did my friend do? He took video of us crazy people in the car. LUCKY YOU I GET TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.

And you also get to check out my shoes.
Enjoy my crazy ass.  And yes that cackling laughter is me.  Why do you think my blog is titled Newlywed Giggles?

I Party Hard on Monday Nights

Yesterday it was my birthday and a bunch of us went out to Ah Pizz for dinner.  It is one of new fave restaurants!

So, after work I came home and cuddled with the pups while we waited for the hubs to get home.  He came home and bought me a gift.  Like, a totally out of the blue gift because he kept asking what I wanted and I just kept telling him I had no idea.  I am very indecisive.... the hubs can attest to that.  So, yeah, my birthday gift is this:

I am SUPER DUPER excited to have my own iPad.  I always use the hubs and I guess he was getting sick and tired of me stealing it from him. heeeee. I can't wait to go home and continue playing with it!!!!

So, after I was all giddy and messing around with my new toy.. I realized the time and had to get ready. I was torn between if my shoes were OK to go with my outfit.  So I took a pic and sent it to my sister and bestie.

Yes, that is me standing on my bed with 4 inch heels on. I realized after today, I need a full length mirror for moments like these.  This was the only way I could get part of my outfit and the shoes in one pic. So yeah... there ya go bloggy peeps.  Me in all my retardness.  Do you know how hard it is to stand on a mattress with 4 inch heels attempting to take a non blurry pic all at the same time?  Not fun.

Anyways, I got super duper cute birthday cards

Photo: Birthday cards from last night!  :)

We had lots of wine at dinner.  Laughed so much.  Spent time with people I love. 
I couldn't ask for better dinner.

We partied like it was a Friday night... we even closed down the place. They literally were kicking us out.  My friend took pics, so hopefully he posts them so I can share with you all.  But the hubs did take a group pic of us:

Half the table didn't realize that a picture was being taken... but me and my main man Javi did! That's us on the right bottom corner. 

I was so blessed to have everyone who came out.  It meant a lot to me.  I really do have awesome friends.

Oh snap.. it's my birthday!

That picture my friends is me as the newly turned 29 year old birthday girl!!!!!!

I am just so blessed to be on this earth and thank Him for everything I have.
This past year has had it's ups an downs and sideways and everything in between, but in the end, I wouldn't change it for the world.  There's a reason we go through the ups and downs, the positive and negative.  It shapes us to be who we are meant to be at that present moment.

Today, I am PROUD to tell everyone I am 29 and rocking it.  But then again, for the past year I was telling everyone I was 29 when I was really 28.  Ha!  I totally would forget my age and would have to ask my husband for confirmation.  Guess it is a sign of getting old? Well, at least I wasn't fretting about being older.

So, cheers to all of us birthdays this month.  Today, it seemed like everyone was posting about their birthday or someone they knew birthday.

Us Leo's rock!!!!

Have a drink for me... and don't worry, it's 5 o'clock somewhere!

Peace and love bloggy friends!

It is fun.
It helps me cope.
It opens new doors for me.
I can connect with people around the world with just one post.
It is ok to blog about the good AND the bad.


Why do you blog?

Aug 17, 2012

aaaahhhhh.... :::breathe:::

So yeah, that's how I feel today. Migraine shut me down yesterday morning. Man, these migraines really do suck. By the afternoon I felt a little better so I thought, since I was home off from work, let me do some chores. You know, might as well stop living like a slob. So, I did three loads of laundry, folded and put away the total 5 loads away... 2 loads from like the week before. I LOATHE laundry.  Then I cleaned the floors, then the bathroom, then the kitchen, then the tables and TV stand.
Then I felt like ultimate shit again.  Why on earth did I decide to deep clean the apt when I thought I felt better was beyond me. STUPID me. I know better, I know that migraine sneaks it's ugly head back in. So then I went to sleep, and woke up still feeling like shit.  The whole day went like that. WOMP WOMP.

Today is better than yesterday, but this headache is still lingering.  GO AWAY.

On another note, my birthday is on Monday.  I will be 29. I am so blessed to have lived through another year of life.  God is good.  This last year had it's up and downs, but I am excited for what the next year will bring.  BRING IT ON! :::cheerleader poms poms in the air:::::

I just planned a birthday dinner for myself.  Totally last minute.  If it wasn't for my best friend saying I should do something, I probably wouldn't have. I just feel blah about it.  I have always been the planner, and about two years ago I took a stance that I wasn't planning shit anymore because I did it for everyone, and no one for me. So I said eff it. I started planning things a bit more now but for some reason, I would have rather have someone else tell me where I should be on my birthday. I doesn't feel right to plan my own thing. But, I caved and did it. I have started receiving the responses and am pretty happy about it.  Now I know why the bestie pushed me.  It's going to help me. Help me feel better about me being me.  And I have some awesome friends so why pass up a night out with them filled with laughter?  So, Monday, I am going to glam it up because let's face it, I felt like shit these past couple of months, so it's my birthday and I am going to look good because I know I am beautiful and can rock it. Holla at my confidence! People, this is rare.  On that note, I have to get a pair of heels fixed with some rubber buds at the heel. Must do that this weekend.

Someone asked me if I was freaking out about being closer to 30.  I told them "No. I am excited to be closer to 30 because if I make it, that means I get to enjoy another wonderful year with my family and friends. Isn't that what life is about?".... that person's jaw dropped and told me thank you. I said, for what?  They said I helped them view birthday's in a different light. 

Kudos to me.

Happy Friday bloggy friends... don't get too drunk this weekend...and if you plan to, have a drink in honor of my birthday!

I got injured doing SACK RACE?!?! What the eff?

It's Monday... and I am so tired that my head might be kissing my keyboard a couple of times today.

BUT, let's talk about my family reunion I had this weekend. 

Saturday morning, hubs and I packed up the car and headed to pick up my cousin.  Then we were on the road for the two hour drive to the place in CT the reunion was taking place. This is how the day turned out.
  • When we got there, it was raining.  But then the sun came out.  But the humidity didn't leave.
  • It was hot, but it didn't matter because I was so happy to see everyone. 
  • There was so much food!!!!!  and it was good.
  • I think I ate about a gazillion hot dogs, pound of cole slaw, three pounds of green olives (I have an obessession with green olives) 20 million burgers, pasta, chicken... everything. I ate everything!!!!!
  • On top of the food, I had ice cream, and cotton candy, and popcorn, and fruit.
  • This place gets an A+ for the food that was available ALL DAY SO I CAN STUFF MY FACE. Thank you.
  • I felt like I was in camp. They had so many activities for us to do
  • First activity - volleyball.  I could not hit that ball for the life of me straight.... instead I kept hitting it so it would go BEHIND our team, rolling down the side of the mountain. FAIL.
  • We played like 17 games of volleyball. It was so much fun!
  • My family is effin crazy... and I love them so darn much.
  • There was a sack race. I decided to team up with my sister.  WE GOT THIS SHIT, WE WILL SHOW THEM HOW SISTERS RULE THIS REUNION.
  • Yeah, we didn't have shit. We fell. Fell HARD... like scraped my knee up HARD.  Not even the little kids fell like we did. My sister was screaming and yelling at me "DO WE JUMP, WALK HOP OH MY EFFIN GOD WHAT DO WE DO AND WHY AREN'T YOU ANSWERING JUMP WALK RUN HOP AHHHHHH"
  • Yeah.. all that in a matter of a minute. In my face. She's lucky I love her.
  • We didn't even finish the race.  The rest of our family did. I was laughing so hard in the middle that I almost peed my pants.  WE DIDN'T FINISH. Such role models we were for our little cousins.  FAIL.
  • Go us.
  • It's Monday and my body is still sore from the reunion.  Why on earth did I think I was 14 again running around like a little kid with my cotton candy in one hand yelling "let's go to the pool, but let me grab my 100th burger before."
  • Yeah, all that happened.
  • IT WAS WORTH IT. I had such a great time!
How was your weekend bloggy peeps?

Project Me

Good morning everyone!

So, today is the start of a new project.  It's called Project Me.

I have always doubted my inner and outer beauty mainly because society tells us what we should look like.  Let's face it, not ALL of us look like that. So, I decided that I would start Project Me on my blog.  This involves taking self portraits of myself and posting them.

Why?  Because I can go back and look at them when I am having a shitty day and say, look at me.  I AM BEAUTIFUL.  I AM UNIQUE. I AM ME.

So, I hope you enjoy this new project I am doing. I am not entirely sure what will come out of this, but so far, I have looked at some of the pics, and I am pretty impressed at myself. It may sound like I am being a diva, but I am really not.  I am just now learning to look at myself and see my beauty instead of my flaws.
Go me.

Beauty of Life

When the world welcomes us in,

We’re closer to Heaven than we’ll ever know.

They say this place has changed,

But strip away all of the technology

And you will see

That we all are hunters,

Hunting for something that will make us okay.

Here we lay alone in hospital beds,

Tracing life in our heads;

But all that is left

Is that this was our entrance and now it’s our exit,

As we find our way home.

All the blood and all the sweat

That we invested to be loved

Follows us into our end,

Where we begin to understand

That we are made of love,

And all the beauty stemming from it.

We are made of love,

And every fracture caused by the lack of it.

“You were a million years of work,”

Said God and His angels, with needle and thread.

They kissed your head and said,

“You’re a good kid and you make us proud.

So just give your best and the rest will come,

And we’ll see you soon.”

All the blood and all the sweat

That we invested to be loved

Follows us into our end,

Where we begin to understand

That maybe Hollywood was right:

When the credits have rolled and the tears have dried,

The answers that we have been dying to find

Are all pieced together and, somehow,

Made perfectly mine.

We are made of love,

And all the beauty stemming from it.

We are made of love,

And every fracture caused by the lack of love

Lyrics to: Needle & Thread by Sleeping At Last

Ponder on that for today.

My weekend in bullet points:
  • Friday, went to friend's daughters musical.  I laughed so much fun. It was awesome.  These kids were talented!
  • Saturday morning, I found out my best friend's dad passed away. It was a long battle but that man held on stronger than ever.  God bless him!
  • Spent time with my best friend.  Our other close friends came by and we all were together for majority of the day.
  • In the middle, we went to my other best friend's gender reveal party... and found out that this third baby will be a GIRL!  He already has two other girls.  Let's just say he better buy some stock in Tampax.
  • Came home, and spent some more time with my best friend while he shared some great memories of his dad with us. I felt so blessed to be there in that moment with him.  We all were amazed at the life his dad lived.  And the pictures from his dad were amazing!
  • Sunday, again, all of the close friends gathered together and spent the day with our friend while he took care of arrangements.  We also met up with his brother too and got to hear some more stories about their dad. 
  • After a day full of memories and planning, we decided to come back to Jersey to grab some food. We get to Outback Steakhouse and wait for about an hour.  Within the hour, a bad storm rolls in.  All of sudden the power goes out in the restaurant.  The manager tells us the restaurant is working at 50% power and to remain calm. Two minutes later, they get news that a car hit a pole and transformer blew and was on fire. They shut down the restaurant. We were next to be seated!  We were so famished.  But in the end, after all of our adventures, we were all together eating dinner and just being awesome.
  • Today, I am exhausted. But it is what it is.
  • I am so grateful to have such an amazing group of friends.  We are pretty awesome as being great supportive friends in time of need.  We were all communicating with each other and made sure our friend knew we weren't just friends, but family. 
  • God is good.  We may not understand why some of the things happen, but in the end, we just have to remember that we will be okay. 
  • Be grateful for your life today.
  • Smile
  • Love

The things Sadie did NOT do right.

So, I have the cutest dog.
BUT, the cute dog of mine does shit she is not suppose to do.
So, let me enlighten you.

This picture was taken when I went to go to sleep.  How freaking adorable is she!  I know... I love her. She looks like an angel tucked under the sheets sleeping the night away.

So I snapped this picture.  Then got ready to get into bed.

I was not a happy camper.

Then, the hubs sends me this picture yesterday morning with this written :

"So I put my socks down on the table and this is what I see when I get back"

This girl LOVES to steal socks and go running!  hahaaha.

But, she is lucky she looks this cute!

Happy Thursday bloggy peeps.

One more thing, today I have to go to a wake for my cousins's dad who has passed away.  I ask for prayers of comfort for my family as we gather together during this difficult time.
Thanks bloggy peeps!

Almost peed my pants

If you follow me on twitter, you will know that this morning I heard on the news that they have found a cure for morning sickness.

I was looking up an article online so I can send it to a co-worker so we can giggle about it.  Ended up the screenshot you are about to see was more than  a giggle for us.  Seriously, this is a screenshot from one of the artciles that I googled. 


It was a video article.. but seriously, the title and the still image that appears before you hit play is FREAKING HILARIOUS. 

Because of this, I almost peed my pants at work.
I just can't handle all this funny stuff at once. Man oh man.

Happy HUMP day.
And for all you preggers out there, happy blowing!
