5 things TUESDAY.....

1. I bought a new table and lamp for our living room from TJ Max. Total spent $70. What do you think? I love it! I actually want to buy 1 more of the tables….I’m still trying to decide! Sorry the pictures aren’t great[taken with my phone..]

2. I love Monday nights because it’s the night our community group meets. We have pizza every Monday night and I really look forward to it. It’s about the only time we eat pizza! Yum…Yum….

3. I was really disturbed recently at a wedding because there were a few kids[ages 6-8] and they knew every word to the Black Eyed Peas Song “Boom Boom Pow” and Tik Tok by Ke$ha..…I was just really surprised. They even sang all the words like they knew what those words meant…

4. I’ve been having a lot of upper back pains on my right side. I’ve tried everything…massages in the mall, muscle rub, etc. I thought for awhile it was just a knot….now I think it’s stress….Help, how do I get rid of it?

5. Last, BUT certainly not least I get my sweet Miley back today! :) I’m so excited! I haven’t seen her a week and a half! I’m super excited…My parents are coming down this afternoon and I finally get her back with me:)

Tell me 5 things[or less] about you!

I love that you said that you got a massage in the mall! I always try to avoid those people because I think they are extra pushy or something, or maybe it's just that I don't want anyone seeing me get a massage in the mall! But I could totally go for one of those!

For me, a warm bath always helps with stress. You are one busy woman, you should definitely get some relax time in! :)

I hope you're doing great & I'm super excited about you guys adopting!

amanda said...

and i meant lamp (singular) sorry!! i do really pay attention. my fingers however have a mind of their own. :)

Unknown said...

I seriously love the table. The lamp. All of it!

Pizza = yumminess.

Your puppy is SO adorable. Ohmygoodness.

I would cringe if I heard kids that young sing those song.

And so sorry about your back! I've had to be on muscle relaxers for back pain. Not fun.


carissa said...

Rhonda said...

I LOVE TjMaxx and Marshalls too!! Ive been saving for some new lamps myself. :)

Miranda Tucci said...

That table and lamp is adorable! What a great find!!! :-)

Little Miley is so cute!

Jill said...

I really LOVE the table. I may have to hit our TJ Maxx and see if I can score one of those.

I'm new to your blog so I haven't seen pics of Miley before. She's precious!

I hope your back feels better. Sorry, I don't have a remedy.

Blogs said...

I loveeeeee TJMaxx! Great stuff! I could spend hours and hours in there....well I do! The dog is tooo cute!

ThingsToDoWithKids said...

I am suprised that kids that age were singing those songs. Wow. I'll never forget when my friend had told me that her son (then 5) told her he wanted to listen to the Britney B*%ch CD.

kim said...

love the list, and glad you found your dog!

gina said...

Is it a knot? Because back pain where you are describing it can also mean gallstones!! Are you having anything that feels like indigestion or a hard time swallowing or eating- like feeling full after just a few bites. If so- call your doctor!!

If it's a knot- a heating pad does wonders for me.

love your purchases.

so five things...

I almost died in a car accident when i was 16.

i dropped out of college.

had my first daughter at 21.

my first miscarriage ON my 20th birthday. some of the nurse actually wished me happy birthday after reading my chart. WT?!??

i have 2 tattoos.

i want more.

after i lose at least 30 lbs.

apparently i love to talk about myself, because i could go on an d on right now.

i'll chalk it up to the fact that i love making lists.


Kelli W said...

I love that lamp! And I am with you...I find it really strange that parents' let their kids listen to that kind of music! Our radio stays on the local Christian music station...that way I know they are singing about inappropriate stuff!

amy (metz) walker said...

VERY cute table! Have you tried getting an adjustment for your back?

Mrs. Jennifer said...

I'm so out of it...I'm going to go google those songs so I can read the lyrics and be disturbed with you. I 100% believe what goes in is what comes out, so I always get disturbed when I see/hear people putting yucky stuff in!

Rebecca Jo said...

HOLY COW... how is your doggie leaning through the window? Is he standing on someone?

Nadine said...

My hubby and I couldn't live with out Pizza :0) One of our all time faves! Precious pup too!!! Great lamp!

ProudTejana said...

Hi Amy, thanks for stopping by and the follow!
your blog is so bright and happy, love it.

TJ Maxx is one of my fave stores. I try not to go because it can do serious damage to my wallet. Also any book store and Tuesday Morning! have a great week.

Elisa said...

I agree with Hilary, you need a real masage, where you can actually relax for one hour and bubble baths are great also.

ok 5 things or less about me.

At age of 8 moved from Mexico to USA.

I'm the middle child of 3 girls.

I have 5 nephews.

One adorable daughter, Isabela

learning croatian to communicate with Hubby's Family.

And one more, I love animals!


Hattie said...

Love that lamp & table! Yay for getting Miley back today! Oh, pizza sounds so good right now!

LOVE the lamp and the table!!!! Our bedroom is teal blue, brown and white!!! My fav colors!!!! I love pizza myself, and LOVE your darling puppy doggy!!!! Dont forget to enter in my giveaway!!! Im picking a winner this week!!!

Machelle said...

Your dog is just too cute! As for the back, Advil and a nice bath? I love massages. If it does not go away within a week or 2 think of going to the doc? Maybe you pulled something.

Love the lamp.

As for the kids knowing all the words, when I taught you should see what some 4 and 5 year olds knew!!! Surprised the heck out of me. Just reminds me of how I want to raise my kids and how the media and a lot of "naughty" music is not good for you!

Reese Ray said...

I think you should get the other table too! It is lovely! My husband would LOVE that. I need to show it to him! I just read lots of your posts too and I wanted to let you know:
*you are not alone on the Real Housewives addiction! I know its trash and I cant stop watching it either!! Especially Orange County. They are my FAV!
* I know what you mean by about the trying to do too many things at once, You see a craft you want to make it, you see some kind of skill and want to learn how to do it and make something for yourself and 100 of your friends and family! I know the feeling! Why do we overwhelm ourselves?!
*Know what if feels like to feel bad for letting the hubs do so much. I think as women and wives we feel like we should be superwomen and do EVERYTHING we do and still have a spotless house and 3 homemade meals a day and so on, but I think helpful husbands are Gods way of helping us out even though we want to do it all sometimes.
*Lastly, so excited about the process of adding new life to your little family. What a blessing! I cant wait to follow and hear updates about it new friend!

Jessica said...

Love the table, lamp, puppy, EVERYTHING! As far as the kids and the songs go, I was disgusted and then I realized that I knew all the words for "I wanna sex you up" by color me bad! Remember them? Awful!

Mrs. Dunbar said...

You are one busy lady.
I am loving your new header and I
am so excited for you and your new journey of adoption.

5 things about me this week:
1)This time change is killing me.
2)I stubbed my toe at church on Sunday and seriously thought I was going to need stitches.
3)I am trying desperately to get my house ready for spring.
4)My husband has a really stressful schedule this week, which just makes me stressed out for him. Prayers appreciated.
5)Life really is good, we are blessed, and truly, I wouldn't change a thing.

Have a good one.

Tawny said...

I actually am digging the time change for once because now instead of waking up at 5:00 my kids are waking up at 6:00-not too shabby :)

Vanessa said...

Your #3 -- I was at a bday party for a 6-year-old and saw 2 little kindergarteners sitting w/their arms around each other and then putting their hands on each other's legs! :-S Too soon! Too soon!

Have you tried a chiropractor?

(Oh, and the table and lamp -- very cute!!)
