New Year's resolutions

I have for the last several years stayed away from resolutions, cause I always break them. This year, it will be different. I am going to make several resolutions.....and I will try my hardest to keep them this year.

1. Go out less, save more money.
2. Send out thank you cards when needed.
3. Keep in better contact with old friends and family.

I think that these 3 are pretty easily obtainable.

What are yours? If you are reading, comment back. It's always fun to see what everyone's are.

Have a wonderful New Years!

Merry Christmas Eve!!!!

Here I sit at work. I got stuck working from 4pm to 8pm today. Not much fun. I am gonna miss Mass. :( Oh well, I need the money. Got lots going on for the holidays. Can't wait to see some family!

Tonight, Steve and I are going (after I get off work) to LaVerne's (my step grandmother) home for a little gift exchange with LaVerne, my Mom, and David.

Tomorrow, Steve and I are going to my mom's for lunch and for the gift exchange with the rest of the family members. I love watching the kids open their gifts. And I can't wait to eat all the food. (Today I made a pumpkin cheesecake and Steve is making a jalepeno corn recipe to take with us tomorrow)

Friday, I will be at work bright and early, as I am opening.

Not sure what the weekend holds, but I am sure that it will be adventurous.

I have changed my personal email address from gmail back to yahoo. I have been having some problems with gmail lately. So please update your address books.

Happy Holidays everyone!

The holidays....

As the holidays come up, its always a hard time for my family. We have lost so many family members around Christmas time. This year on December 24, it will be 11 years since my grandmother passed. I still have so many wonderful and vivid memories of her. Christmas Eve is always really a hard day for me. A lot of sadness. I miss her greatly and I still think about her all the time. I can still hear her voice somedays. I still picture her sitting in her rocking chair and reading her books. I love you grandma and miss you so much.

This year, however, I am trying to make the holidays a more cheerful time. I am trying to keep myself positive and in the festive mood. Somedays it works, somedays it doesn't. I will try though.

Last weekend, Steve and I attended a Christmas party with the Pannell family.

This Thursday, is Declin's very first Christmas program. I can't wait to see that handsome little boy, that stole my heart 15 months ago, in his little suit. (pictures will be posted for sure)

This Friday, we are attending a Christmas party at the Hiler (Rachel and Cody) home.

Saturday is the Pat Green/Dancehall Party at Billy Bob's. I can't wait to see Pat Green and all of my out of town friends that are coming in for this!!!!

Sunday, is a Christmas gathering at Kate's apartment. Sunday is also the day that Jeff and MaryAnn come into town for the holidays!!!

So much going on in the next few weeks......and honestly, I can't wait to have a nice quiet relaxing weekend at home, on the couch, doing nothing....with Steve.

Merry Christmas, if I don't post again before then!!!

Old Friends

On Saturday, we met up with some old friends at a Christmas Party. It was so much fun and good to see these people that I normally only see once or twice a year, if that. I even saw a few that I had not seen in 10 or more years. Here are some pics through out the evening (warning: there was alcohol involved lol). The pics came out bad quality for some reason, sorry.

Wow......keep the eyes open!

***I need your help with something***

JP (from Galleywinter) is a friend of mine through Texas Country Music.

If you could please check out this site and donate what you can.....

So much going on lately.....where to begin.......

Been spending a lot of time with Steve. Things are going well.

Declin (my nephew) is growing like crazy.....and learning so much. He is way too cute.

I have also been hanging out with Ben.....A LOT. Fun times. 2 Simmons together always equal hours of entertainment and laughs. lol

Friday evening, I am going to see Brandon Rhyder at Gilley's in Dallas. I can't wait!!!!! It's been way to long since I have been to a BR show. I am so excited.

Thanksgiving will be fun. Going to lunch at Stephanie and Johnny's this year.

I am thankful for many things. Life, Family, Friends, God. What are you thankful for?

sad times

Today, I experienced something that I never want to go through or see again. I watched a friend of 20 years, bury her child. Her precious angel that didn't even get to experience our world for a full 24 hours. A beautiful newborn baby. It was the hardest thing I have ever seen or done in my life. Ever. I can't even imagine the heartbreak and sorrow that the Pannell family is going through. The sorrow and sadness and anger that is to come. I just know from my personal feelings that I am angered with the fact that a precious baby could be taken from our world without even getting a chance to see anything outside of the hospital. She was a beautiful, beautiful little girl. So doll-like looking today. She was precious. My heart and my prayers go out to this family.

What I did learn from this experience today, is that my network of friends is absolutely amazing. These are people I have known anywhere from 10 to 20 years. These are people that without fail, will re-unite for weddings and funerals. These are people that have my back no matter what. These are people that I can rely on. These are a group of people that will do anything for "our group". Even after years of growing up and changing and moving on with life, they are still some of my best friends to the end. I don't see these people near enough. So to Patty, Katie, Kevin, Sherry, Brandon, Tiana, April, Tina, and Jeremy (forgive me if I left anyone off)......I love you guys...unconditionally.....and until the end.

Ok.....I am going to cry some more and go to sleep.

The Pannell/Lozano family is in my prayers. I love you Patty. God Bless.

RIP Marisa Payton Pannell!

Funeral Services

For anyone wanting to attend the funeral for Patti (maiden name Lozano) and Jeff Pannell's baby girl (Marisa Payton), the funeral will be held on Friday at 12:00pm.

Ben F Brown's Memorial Funeral Home
707 N MacArthur Blvd
Irving, TX 75061

catching up and praying.

I think that some prayers should be said today.....for each person, for our country, for loss, for happiness, for truth, for everything.

First, a long time friend of mine, Patty, and her husband lost their newborn baby last night. She was only hours old and they had to make the decision to disconnect life support. I can't even imagine what they are going through. They are certainly in my prayers.

Second, for my family that is going through some tough times right now. They need the strength to overcome what is being put before them and to move forward with these HUGE changes in their lives.

Also, I said in my last post that I am cutting relationships/friendships out of my life that are hurtful or harmful, I meant this. I have begun this process. Some hurt, some don't. Some are a huge relief off my shoulders, others aren't. It will all work out in the end as planned though. God is good.

Alot has been going on lately. I went to NASCAR on Sunday with some friends....Mark, Ulysses, Morgan, Rachel, Dan, Courtney, and Cody. It was a surprisingly good time. I am not a NASCAR fan.....but it was a blast.

This weekend, I am going to some dirt track races.

Nov 23, I am having a Pampered Chef party with Rachel hosting it. YAY!

Just a lot going on lately and a lot of thinking being done.

With all that said......Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Life is too short

I went to Casey Chrystie’s Celebration of Life on Saturday. It was an eye opening experience for me…..really Casey’s whole trial with Cancer and his death have been a wake up call to me. Cancer took someone at age 24 that had totally given his life over to God. Totally. Did he achieve what he was put on this earth for in that short amount of time?

This got me thinking about my life and where I stand and my Faith in God. Do I have Faith? Have I given myself to God as I should? No, I haven’t. Do I plan on it? Absolutely.

To see the Chrystie family and their Faith at that Celebration of Life was amazing. They are mourning, yet they are celebrating the life that Casey had on this earth and now the life that Casey has with our God in Heaven. Just breath taking. I read the journal on Casey’s Caring Bridge website everyday as Gaylene and Bruce update it. Their Faith and verses and quotes sometimes are what inspires me to get through my day some days. and the journal is under caseychrystie.

It really is amazing. I forward the journal entries to several of my friends daily so that they can see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. While some days, I cry reading the journal, I know that my Faith isn’t that strong, but I want it to be.

That leads me to what I wanted to say. Life is way too short to dwell on things, on the past, on the negativity, on drama. I am going to move forward and smile. I am going to pray. I cherish the relationships I have in my life with both my family and my friends. I am going to take more chances. I am going to move past the things and people that I know are causing harm or hurt in my life and bring on the positive ones. I am going to find my Faith in God.

With that…..Hope that everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Wednesday, October 22, 2008


do you ever have those days where you feel completely and utterly OVERWHELMED? yeah, that has been me for the last week. Lots going on in my life right now. It's good to have the friends I have and great to have the family that supports me. I know I will be ok when it's all said and done, but right now, I just feel like that isn't possible. I don't know which way to go, who to REALLY turn to, who I can trust and confide in, or really who I am right now. I will find myself again, and when I do, I know I will be a better person because of it all. Just send a few up for me if you get a chance.

this weekend and next

Well, the girl's only party was last night. I had a great time. It was good to hang out with my girls. I have tons of food left over, but it will get's all good stuff.

Next weekend, I am watching Declin from Friday afternoon/evening until Sunday afternoon/evening. His parents are going on a much needed camping trip. Declin and myself will hang out and have fun.

Saturday evening at 5pm is the Celebration of Life for Casey Chrystie. It will be a sad time, but supposed to be a joyous one as well. RIP Casey, you will be missed!

Well, it's Sunday and my show is about to start. Hope everyone has a great week!

overwhelmed? sometimes

This past week has been nuts.....

Thursday (10/02) - went to Flips in Grapevine with Ozzy and a few of his co-workers.

Saturday (10/04) - Was Vitali's first birthday party!!!!

Sunday (10/05) - Chris and Valerie's wedding and reception. Then to Malone's in Ft Worth for a little after party.

Monday (10/06) - watched Monday Night Football at Logan's in Addison with Nicki and Ozzy.

Wednesday (10/07) - went to Ben and Jeannie's after work to spend some time with my precious nephew Declin.

Thursday (10/09) - went to Logan's again to meet up with Nicki, Ozzy, and Al. Ended up hanging out with Ron, Roland, Lindsay, and Haley as well. Great time!!!!

Saturday (10/11) - hanging out and pedicure with mom. over to hang out with Jeannie and Declin. This is the time that Declin has decided my name is "Puppy". WTF?!?!? Yeah, he will argue it too. Good thing he is so damn cute. HAHAHA! That evening was Stephanie Carrillo's 30th birthday party at her house.

and that leaves me at today. I am cleaning and going crazy trying to make lists of what needs to be done through out the week.

Tonight, I think I am meeting Daniel for a few drinks and maybe dinner or something. Haven't seen him in forever....and let's face it, sometimes we need that friendship of someone that knows us so well and can give us the advice we need. I love my Daniel. lol. Even if he is brutually honest sometimes.

This week is sure to be busy too......Living close to Nicki might possibly be the death of both of our livers. It has been a long time coming, but this next year.....could possibly be the breaking point. LMFAO!

This Friday (Oct 17) is the prep work and cooking/baking for the "Girl's Only Party" I am having. Saturday is the ALS walk at 8:30am and then home to prep and get ready for the party that evening. I can't wait to hang out with all of my girls. I am sad about the ones that can't make it, and we will have a drink or 10 for you. lol.

Last and certainly not least, I would like to request that everyone send some thoughts and prayers up for the Chrystie family. Casey Chrystie isn't doing well AT ALL as his cancer has now over taken his lungs. They have him on what is called "comfort care" which basically means they are keeping him as pain-free as possible until our Leader comes to take him Home. Please pray for Casey and for his family and friends during this extremely difficult time.

Wednesday, October 8, 2008


Well, my good friend Crystal and her hubby, Ty....had their 4th child today. It was a boy. 6 pounds, 9 ounces. 19 1/2 inches long. No name yet as they were told through the whole pregnancy that it was a girl. lol. goodness....I can't even imagine.

It's that time of the year again for the ALS walk

Dear Family and Friends,

Dust off your walking shoes! I am writing today to invite you to support a very important and exciting event, The ALS Association, North Texas Chapter Walk to Defeat ALS®.Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a fatal neuromuscular disease that can strike anyone without warning. Every 90 minutes someone in this country will be diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone will lose their battle against this devastating disease.The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association's national signature event. Each year, nearly 100,000 patients, men, women, children and corporations join together to raise funds in support of internationally driven cutting-edge ALS research and community-based patient services programs. Now in its ninth year, approximately 150 Walks will be held around the country in 2008.As a participant of the Fort Worth Walk, I am asking for your support by making a gift to The ALS Association or by joining me as a participant on Walk Day.

This year, I will Walk in honor of Betty Ann Bass (my grandmother)who was courageous in her battle with ALS. During her struggle with the debilitating effects of ALS, Grandma forever inspires us with her bravery and determination. This inspiration encouraged me to join the fight against ALS. I hope you will join me as we work to help everyone living with this disease.Supporting and joining the Walk to Defeat ALS® is very easy!

Don't sweat the small petty things......

Lately, it seems that I am REALLY annoyed when people start bitching about small stuff. I don’t understand it and it takes everything I have not to tell those people to shut the hell up. I mean really? Have you seen all the shit that the hurricane victims are going through? Does it really matter if someone mis-spelled words on their email? At least you are alive and woke up this morning and are able to read their email!!!

I guess as I get older, I am realizing how precious life is and how important the people in my life are. I don’t want to dwell on the small things any longer. I want to live life to the fullest. I want to spend time with my family and friends. I want to meet new people and learn new things.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I don’t dwell on petty stuff. We all do occasionally. I am saying that I don’t think it should be ALL that we dwell on. Live life as a happy person. Not bitching or complaining all the time. Take time to smile… lightens a mood.

Monday, September 29, 2008

Just one of those crappy days.....but I got some good news in the mix that I wanna announce.

Today has been a sad day for me. Some of you know and others will find out as it spreads through the grapevine/rumor mill. I am doing ok, but could be better. Jeannie and Kate are coming over tonight to have a girl's night and stay with me. We are gonna sit around the pool to drink a few and smoke a few. Things will get better.

So, now, onto the good news.....Jeff (my mom's husband as I was growing up and the man that raised me as his own daughter since the age of 8) and Maryann (his long time girlfriend....seriously, like 12 years or something) called me today to let me know they are getting married!!!!! I am so excited for them and I can't wait until the reception. Many of my friends know Jeff, and this is a great thing for him. The wedding is going to be small and just between the 2 of them on April 1, 2009. The reception will be that following Saturday in Atlanta. I can't wait to start making my travel arrangements. YAY!

Friday, September 26, 2008

Tag! You're It!!!!

Tag RULES: Tell us about 6 unspectacular quirks that you have. Tag 6 following bloggers. Leave a comment on each of their blogs to let them know they’ve been tagged.

1. My laundry HAS to be folded a certain way. If they are not, I can't sleep or concentrate on anything else. This used to drive my ex-husband crazy because he would help with laundry and I would go behind him and refold everything.

2. I am a worrier. I worry about everything. I worry for my friends and family. I worry for myself. I can't help it. I have always been that way.

3. I have a shoe and handbag problem. It's really hard to convince myself that I don't need more of them.

4. I have an extreme fear of midgets/dwarfs/little people. I can't control it. If one appears where I am at, I have to leave and/or get away from them. I know it is silly, but I can't help it.

5. I also have a fear of dumpsters. I am so terrified of taking my trash out and finding a baby and/or animal in there. Same thing was water drains (gutters) on the street. I avoid them at all costs. Thank God that I have curb side trash pick up at my apartments.

6. When I find a song I like, I buy or the CD, etc. I listen to it over and over until I get tired of it. I don't know why, its just what I do.

so......I don't know who to tag next.....if you feel like you want to do this.....just do it. lol


ok.....I know I have people out there who read this.........leave me some comments on if you believe in karma or some good karma stories.

Reason for asking, I believe that karma is real. I think that people who do shitty things will eventually get there paybacks in the end. I have seen some karma being returned today to someone who has done some mean and awful things to me and my friends. Does it satisfy me? no, it makes my heart ache and my stomach hurt for them.

So, tell me your stories and your opinions.

Happy 1st Birthday Declin!!!!

My baby nephew turned 1 today. I can't believe it's been a year. I can't believe the feelings that a little person that isn't even my child could make me have. My nephew, Declin, is my pride and joy and the love of my life. I love you Declin. Happy Birthday baby boy!

Monday, September 22, 2008

weekend update.

my weekend has been great.

Friday night, I relaxed and watched some TV.
Saturday, I cleaned. Shopped. Picked up dad from the airport. Had dinner and hung out at Ben and Jeannie's.
Sunday, Malinda did my hair.....I am blonde again!!!!
Then I had dinner at Ben and Jeannie's again. Watched some of the Cowboys game. Then went to mom and David's to visit for a bit. to bed to start a new week.

Friday, September 19, 2008


On Sunday, Jeannie and Declin came over to see my new place. I set up the pack and play so Declin could have a nap. Taking that thing down was a bitch. Maybe I should hold off having kids until I can work their accessories properly. lol

Monday and Tuesday were pretty uneventful. Tuesday evening, the cable guy came back out to fix the signal to the box. I have cable again!!!! YAY!

Wednesday was dinner with my man.

Thursday was girls night out at Dukes Bedford with Lydia, Amber Lee, Kate, Leah, Jeannie, and Heather joined us for a bit too. It was a great time. Around 11ish, Jeannie and I headed out to Cowboys Red River to meet up with Ozzy for our friend Jody's going away party. Wow......I think I got a little out of control with the drinking. Ozzy ended up driving my car to my apartment and leaving his car at the bar. His car was broken into over night. I feel completely terrible about it. Not much was really stolen, but the window was broken. :(

Friday evening was supposed to be another night out, with Shelby and Lydia at Texas Bar and Grill in Las Colinas. I decided that I can not possibly drink again I will be heading home after work to veg out on my couch.

Lots of big events coming up in the next few weeks. Exciting stuff.

My dad will be flying in tomorrow from Kentucky for 9 days. I can't freaking wait!

Declin's first birthday is on Wednesday the 24th. I can not believe he is turning one already.

Thursday the 25th of April King's birthday, Friday the 26th is her birthday party at Dragonfly in Hotel Zsa Zsa.

Saturday the 27th is the day of Declin's birthday party. YAY!!!!!

My dad will be flying back home on the 28th. :(

The next weekend, Oct 3 - 5, I will be going to Shreveport with Nicki. It's been a while since we have gone and I can not wait.

Lots of fun stuff!

That is all I have for now.......Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!

Saturday, September 13, 2008

All moved in!!!!

Yep! You read that correctly.....I am all moved in and even completely unpacked. Sometimes my OCD goes into full effect, especially at times like this.

The rain/tropical storm held off while the movers loaded and unloaded my stuff. I am so thankful for that. I can't wait for people to come over and see my new place and all my new things. YAY!!!!

My prayers go out to all of the victims of Hurricane Ike. I know some of my friends are going through some tough times right now. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. My thoughts and prayers will remain with you!

Thursday, September 11, 2008

Remembrance and celebration....sounds sad to say that.

I have spent some time today reflecting on the events of 9/11/01. Such a sad time in our history. Today I am praying for those that lost their lives that sad day, for the families and friends of those people, for our nation as a whole, and for our men and women of military. God Bless the USA!

“This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down to enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day. Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.” George W. Bush September 11, 2001
(I stole this quote from The Brendel's family blog

Today I pick up the keys and sign the lease for my new apartment. For those that have been around for more than a couple of years, you realize what a great accomplishment this is for me. I absolutely can NOT wait!!!!

Speaking of moving into my new apartment, I will be moving during the raining and flooding that we will be getting for Hurricane Ike. The weather forecast is showing rain all weekend.....what fun my move will be. lol

With this hurricane hitting the Texas Coast, I am praying for my friends and family in the hurricane's path. Please please please evacuate if necessary for your safety.

That is all I have for today. I am off work tomorrow, so that I can have my cable and internet set up at the new place.

So until next time, everyone have safe evacuations, stay dry, stay safe, and pray!

Happy Birthday to Sarah Griffin and Brad Anderson!!!!!

The weekend of shopping!

Friday night, I hung out with Jeannie and Declin at their house for a while.

Saturday, I was up bright and early to go buy furniture. I bought my couch, chair, ottoman, mattress, box spring, and bed frame. Dropped all of that off at the house and went to a few other stores. Ended up buying 2 dressers (1 with a mirror) and a night stand.

Saturday afternoon/evening was spent hanging out over at Shelby and JP’s for Shelby’s birthday party. It was a blast!

Sunday, was breakfast with Ben, Jeannie, Declin, and Ozzy……then off to more shopping!!! I bought my computer desk and all of my bedding.

The big move is this weekend! I am so excited!

So much coming up in the next few weeks, I feel like I have been running nonstop for months now.

My dad will be in town on the 20th.
Declin’s birthday is the 24th, then his party is the 27th. I can’t not believe he is going to be 1 already. Where has time gone?
October 3rd, I will be going to Shreveport with Nicki.

Happy 28th Birthday Shelby!!!! Love ya girlie!

Sarah Palin.

All I can say right now is damn. She has my vote as VP for the United States of America!

Wednesday, September 3, 2008

Hump Day!

Last night was a night of packing, separating clothes I no longer need from the ones I do need, as well as shoes. I am donating a whole SMALL box of shoes. For anyone that really knows me, this is a tragedy for me.

After all of that "fun", I watched the RNC (Republican National Convention, for those unaware).
There were some great speakers, including Laura Bush, George W. Bush, Fred Thompson, and Joe Leiberman. There was also a wonderful tribute to former President Ronald Reagan.
I can't wait to watch it tonight to hear Sarah Palin!!!

I want to end todays blog with asking for some prayers for the Lira Family. Mark, Annette, Kailey, and Katie (as well as the rest of the family) prayers are with you in your time of loss.

Also, I would like to wish Kate good luck on an interview she has set up within her current company!!!

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Labor Day weekend 2008

So where to start.......

Friday evening, I attended Kate's birthday party at the Republic in Las Colinas. Saw lots of LS2 friends and some friends that aren't members there. Had a great time. Probably drank a little more than I should (which is one of the many reasons I am so glad to have Ozzy in my life, he takes care of me).

Saturday morning, I took Ozzy back to his car, and then off to the house to pack a bag for my evening at Ben and Jeannie's. After a quick trip to Wal-Mart and some cleaning with Jeannie, we were able to get her 28th birthday party underway. I had a blast. Good to see old and new friends.

Sunday, I went home to begin the "relocating of boxes" part of my day. Since I am moving in less than 10 days, I needed to locate all of my boxes that have been randomly stuffed around the house (where ever we could find room to put them). I ended up having to pick up Ozzy from work that evening due to some "medical" problems that he was experiencing.

Monday, Ozzy and I pretty much laid around the house all day. Watched TV, went to pick up some food, watched more get the idea. I am at work today and realizing all of the stuff that needs to get done before my big move. EEK!

Well, that's all I got for today. Tomorrow is hump day, and evening for Ozzy and I to hang out with Jeff and Leah. YAY!

Welcome to my blog

On this blog, I promise to keep everyone updated in the crazy life of me, Amber. So much has been going on lately, I think it might just be easier to keep up with things here. goes.....
