I need to get up and get ready

I need to get up and get ready for work. We have a house walk through on Thursday and I’m nervous and scared about it. We have air fresheners everywhere and we’re rearranging furniture. We had his dad cut the grass and the Brazilian pepper trees that were way overgrown. We need to buy a few things tonight at Lowes and then I’ve gotta hide stuff and make it pretty. 


I just got home from work about an hour ago and I’m exhausted. I ended up working til almost 5pm. And remember, I was only scheduled til 330pm! I need to wash dishes and do more laundry but I’m just so tired that I don’t want to do anything. I’ve got to at least wash J’s work shirts. I don’t know if he has any left. And he probably needs clean pants, I’m pretty sure that I do! I had to get some out of the dirty clothes for today. I didn’t want to take the time to look for clean ones last night so when I was throwing the clothes into a basket, I kept a pair of pants out. Luckily I only wear them 2 days anyways so they’re not that dirty and they don’t smell! Have I mentioned I’m tired? Cause I am. I keep wanting to close my eyes.

I have cousins as I’m sure almost everyone in the world does. She’s a 3rd cousin or something. And she’s on my FB and she asked if anyone knew how to make money online and I told her she could start an awesome blog and generate money that way. She asked me if I knew how to go about that and I gave her some links and some advice. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now but haven’t ever done. I always just write and write and write on LiveJournal but it’s private. This is my first public blog! But I’ve only told J about this. Oh J is my fiance. For his privacy I’m only calling him J but I’m sure I’ll slip up one day and use his real name. But I’m going to try not to do this!!!!

I’ve been thinking a lot about our wedding bands lately and I think I’m going to go the custom route. The rings are one of the things I want to spend money on. Along with the photos. But the other stuff such as decorations I don’t need to spend a lot of money on. I was willing to spend a lot on my dress but I was going to buy fabric and all the other things needed so that my mom could make the dress. BUT we found a dress that I think we’re going to use and alter it. My aunt bought it at the store she works at for $20. I think that’s an awesome deal and I really like the dress. =)

So back to the rings. My engagement ring has sapphires on it and so I want our wedding bands to have sapphires too. I’m going to have something inscribed inside of his. The word love will be in whatever little saying I go with and I want the O to be a sapphire. So I’ve been trying to find images of rings with “hidden stones” because I love the idea of it being something that is just for us. That only we know about and no one will know about it unless we tell them. I’ve also wanted to have an image of our fingerprints put on the outside of our rings and then my ring I want a stone on the outside AND the inside. Since I’m a girl, I need the bling bling. RIGHT?! I’m going to get off here and start the washer and maybe close my eyes a little bit. I’m not going to take a nap, just going to rest my eyes. ; )

The future.

My plans here are if I keep updating on here then I would like to buy a domain name. We’ll see. I’ve been pretty devoted to my LJ since 2001 so who knows. I could just abandon this and stick with it… But I’m hopeful.

J is eating potato chips in the next room… I can hear him and I want some. But it’s so late, I can’t eat this late. I think I’m going to go to bed. And go through the books I have that I haven’t read yet. I’ve read 2 books in the past week and I think I’m on a reading kick again. I go through cycles. I’ll read like 10 books in a few months then not read anything for a few months and then I go back to reading.


The boys played volleyball tonight. The usual people were all there. I sat around and talked and read my book. Ok, so there was more reading than talking for me. Once a bookworm, always a bookworm. I finished reading Come Home and it was really good. It’s by Lisa Scottoline. It’s the second book I’ve read by her. And I want more. More books and more books by her. I must go see what I can find on amazon now.

I am trying to do laundry. But our dryer takes forever to dry clothes so it takes me forever to finish our laundry which really means I never finish the laundry. So annoying.

I painted my nails today! yay. I did Sally Hansen Black and Blue as the base color and Sally Hansen Glass Slipper on top and then Seche Vite to dry everything quickly. Which I love because then I can go and finish the laundry. Or pretend to finish the laundry.

I work tomorrow morning. 8-330. I like and hate working Sunday mornings.

Tonight was prom and so we saw all these girls in prom dresses and we had to talk about their dresses of course. Their color choices and their style choices.

Ok, time to go do something else…

First post? Intro post? Yeah whatever.

I’m not new to blogging but I am new to using WordPress. I go by the online name of velvetfrogg with two g’s. I blog about anything and everything. I might rant about my pets throwing up everywhere. I could paint my nails and post iPhone pictures of the colors I used. But I’m not the greatest or most artistic so they could be boring. But pretty in my eyes. I love glitters and stars and it might show that here one day. I could read five books this month and I’ll blab blab blab about them. Who knows what I’ll blog about? I’m a rambling all over the place type of blog writer.
