The Bunny Puppy and the Pig

This is a dog post.

On Monday my little Bunny Puppy, also known as, Angus, got fixed.
And he had a herniated belly button, so they took care of that..
And they pulled four of the little mans teeth.
Poor, poor little fella.

The day we brought him home, he was whooped. Little Bunny couldn't stay awake.
We felt sorry for him.

We assumed he'd be out like this for a week, at least.
Um, nope.

The very next day, Bunny was back to his usual, psycho, maniac self.

I'd feel bad leaving Walter the Piggie out of this post.
So here he is.
Mr. Walter likes to find new places to sleep.
Last night he thought a laundry basket would do.
Silly Pig.

All Smiles

It happened.
The braces came OFF!!

Well, the top ones at least. 
Below is a weird cheesy smile of mine - attempting to show the bottom ones are still here.
But hopefully only for a couple more weeks.

I always knew this day would be glorious.
And it has been.
My teeth feel smooth and small.
I feel like my lips are too big for my face, now..
And I look really different.
My teeth look huge.

But the bottom line is, the braces are (basically) off
And I'm all smiles.

to spark your interest...

Take a goooood look, loves.
Something is about to change.

food for thought

Lucky Sunday

Today was awesome. Sundays have a tendency of being that way.
There is something 100% awesome about being able to go to church then have quality family (&boyfriend) time on this lovely day. I can't help but lay in bed every single sunday night with a smile on my freezing cold face. ::freezing cold because my basement is unbearably arctic::

Momma and Savannah had New Beginnings, tonight, and daddy-o had some work to take care of, so little Miss Adi and I had some fantastic sisterly bonding time! We played hours of games, listened to Disney music, danced, talked, etc. Sooo good. That Adi is one fabulous little lady.

Later in the day I was privileged to spend some time with my handsome boyfriend, along with my momma and little sisters. We had a great time talking, laughing, looking at old pictures and laying by the fireplace. Craig is a good sport and always listens to our stories even if they're probably super boring. He's awesome. Seriously, it was a great sunday and the people in my life only made it better. I don't care what you say, I'm the luckiest girl in all the land! So, so, so lucky, folks.

In other news...
Last week was crazy. It was a bit of an emotional roller coaster full of all sorts of feelings, emotions, impressions, etc. I was overwhelmed more than enough times, but as I said before, I have the best people in my life who have been so very helpful in my life weather they know it or not and never stop showing me how much they care for me. Its amazing to be able to have someone to talk to and open up with and not hold anything back. I'm glad I have my family for that, my boyfriend who I swear is perfect (and has helped me soooooo much this week) and my best friend. I love all of you guys - you're great & my heroes!
After all the talking-it-out I've done this week, I'm anxious and excited for this upcoming week and to see what events, adventures, and little cute moments take place! Best of all, I know if anything gets hard, I've got these fabulous people in my life to cheer me back up!

How many times can I say it before it gets annoying?

Oh look..Another sleepless night.
Naturally, I've been all over the internet in hopes to eventually get tired. It hasn't worked yet but I've still got hope.
In my searching the world wide web, I've found several quotes (i love quotes) that fit my millions of emotions I'm feeling right now. Since I'm a nice girl (and a bored girl) I thought I'd go ahead and share with you, my blogging friends.

quotes for the annoying times:

quotes for my many happy (craig) times:

and finally, quotes to make you think: 

ChelseaKate's Super Bowl Recap

Super Bowl Sunday

...is just another sunday.

Sorry. I'm not a huge Super Bowl fan.
I like me some football-watchin' from time to time...
No, really. I do.
But today wasn't one of those days.
Its amazing to me how I could just stare at the tv "watching" football
but not actually watch any of it.

Giants & Patriots.
I really didn't care who won.
I decided to "root" for Patriots - but clearly that didn't go well.

However, there were perks to my Super Bowl Sunday this year.
I got to watch it with my handsome boyfriend and his great family.
So..it was as good as the Super Bowl could get.
Being with cute, sweet, darling, perfect company is pretty spectacular.
You know?

There was yummy food at this party, too..always a HUGE plus.
Foods good.

I was a little disappointed in the commercials, this year.
Weren't you?
I mean really, there weren't any great ones.
Madonna was cool - I really didn't mind the half time show.
I was entertained.

P.S. Have you ever heard of the Puppy Bowl?
Its on Animal Planet..
I watched that a little bit, too..
I think I was more entertained by it than the actual game.

I hope your Super Bowl Sunday was everything you'd hoped for..
And hopefully you wanted the Giants to win.
If not, I'm sorry about your Patriots.

Sometimes people are mean. Sometimes people you were once very close with turn on you. Sometimes those same people say rude things about you. Sometimes people tell your secrets. Sometimes people you don't really even know say mean things about you, or start telling lies about you, or try their best to bully you and make you feel like crap and give up on something you're working hard for. Sometimes people talk behind your back and stick a knife there, too. Sometimes people expose your weaknesses to others. Sometimes people are mean.

(but thankfully only sometimes, right?)

Not to sound pathetic or anything, but I have been a victim to all these crimes.

Obviously, going through these mean-people situations is far, far, far from fun. I lost friends due to them, I have a reputation to some people of being someone who I definitely am not, I probably looked like a loser many times and the list could go on and on and on and on.

Today as I was logged onto good ol' Facebook, I was informed some of these old rumors that have been spread about me were circulating around my peers, once again, this time with another new little twist. Grrrrreat. At first, I was going to go into my comfort zone of locking myself down in my room and throwing myself one heck of a pity-party. But then there was that voice in my head (and some people's voices via text message) that reminded me its so much better to be positive - and you can find positivity even in crappy boo-boo moments - even if its a little more work to be happy, its just...better, you know?

I've decided to look at it this way: With all of this drama, I'm gaining life experience and only getting stronger. Who knows, maybe one day my own children will be going through their fair share of drama trauma and I'll be able to go back to being 18 to 21 years old and take my experiences and be able to better help them through their issues. Or maybe my children will be free of that and these trials are purely for my benefit, for me to learn and grow from. You know?

Really, I've just come to the conclusion that life isn't a Disney movie. Unfortunately. The good guy doesn't always win and there isn't that iffy-sounding music that plays to warn you right when something bad is about to happen. BUT if you do your best to maintain a happy, optimistic attitude and rely on your family, real friends and the gospel, life can get pretty dang close to being a pretty little Disney fairy-tale.

Bullies are real, gosh dang it and they always will be. Haters gonna hate. People gonna try and bring you down...But there is power, lots of power, in positive thinking, surrounding yourself with the right people and NOT retaliating or stooping down to their level. Being the bigger person and not saying a foul word about these people to anyone and taking the high road will always be the best path. Take it from me. (plus, i've learned you get more sympathy-votes from people when you aren't being a mean one, too.) Its hard. Even though I try and have a good attitude and go about this without feeling a little down, I still do feel low. But hey - life would be pretty dang boring if there weren't trials to work through and overcome.


There you have it. My i-hope-this-isn't-too-mean-rant-because-i-don't-want-more-drama-caused venting on bullies. You know me, I feel better when I write it all out. ;)

Finally, let me leave you with some lovely T-Swift lyrics:

You, with your words like knives and swords and weapons that you use against me
You have knocked me off my feet again got me feeling like I'm nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard, calling me out when I'm wounded
You, pickin' on the weaker man
Well, you can take me down with just one single blow
But you don't know what you don't know
Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?
You, with your switching sides and your walk-by lies and your humiliation
You, have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them
I'll walk with my head down trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you
I just wanna feel okay again
I'll bet you got pushed around, somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now 'cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know what you don't know
Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?
