Perfectly Imperfect Mom

A Blog about Being the Best Mom YOU Can Be

Sunday, Sister Day!

By on September 27, 2010

Today I spent with my awesome sister, Ashley. She and I are only 19 months apart so we grew up very close. We have had our ups and downs through high school but have been pretty close our whole lives.

I called her and told her I wanted to go shopping. I had to find some good sales because I was only allowing myself to spend $35 max!

We went to a few different places and nothing really sparked my interest until she suggested NY & Co. and there is was! A whole area of sale items. I was very exited because they had really cute sunglasses for $2.99! Seriously? YES! I have never seen sunglasses so cheap before. I was just telling someone last night how I really wanted a pair of big fun sunglasses and I got two pairs!  They also had this funky wallet and cowl neck scarf. I got all of this for just under $17! I also got a set of 3 different sizes of hoop earrings from Dots for $3. I stayed under budget and was able to go to lunch with Ash.

{one} what is your happiest childhood memory?
I have a lot. I always loved going on vacation with my family because we always had so much fun. I think one of the best ones was going to Utah and Vegas. We went skiing and it was my first time seeing snow. I was about eight and I was really good at it. I remember having snowball fights with my brother, sister and cousin. We also went to this old town that was like the Wild Wild West and then we went to Vegas and stayed at Circus Circus and my cousin and brother scared the crap out of my sister and me with telling us scary stories and they even did Bloody Mary in the bathroom and came out with ketchup all over their faces. It was probably one of the most memorable vacations.

{two} what is your middle name?
Patricia after my Dad Patrick.

{three} what’s the habit you’re most proud of breaking?
hmm probably driving like a maniac.

{four} what do you order when you order chinese food?
Honey Chicken!

{five} what’s the best bargain you’ve ever found at a garage sale or thrift store?
I actually got a really cute purse at a thrift store. I was always kind of weirded out by those places but my friend wanted to go and I couldn’t do the whole clothes thing but I did look at purses and you can actually see the purse in the post A is for Awesome, its the animal print one. It was only like $7 and it was on sale so less then that and they don’t charge tax!

{six} what’s the best costume you’ve ever worn?
I was such a nut when it came to Halloween so I changed my mind every other day but I remember one year I wanted to be a vampire and I painted my face and drew a widows peak on my head and had the blood coming down my face and everyone else was dressed really girlie and cute. I was really hardcore that year.

{seven} who’s your favorite game show host?
Pat Sajak, I loved Wheel of Fortune when I was younger.

{eight} what’s your favorite breakfast food?
I actually don’t really like breakfast food. It all seems so greasy and gross to me. I do like french toast once in a blue moon.

{nine} what’s your least favorite word?
Retard, I think it is such a useless word.

{ten} describe something that happened to you for which you have no explanation.
Hmm I don’t really know. I will have to think about it and get back to you.

okay, your turn!

I am so excited for this season of Glee! I can not wait to see it tonight. I actually saw a commercial for it about 2 seconds ago and had to write about my excitement. I am in love with Mark Salling. He is my favorite singer on the show. He needs more musical numbers. When he sang Loser I almost died. He is HOT!

A is for Awesome!

It’s Saturday! Hello weekend!

Today I ended up waking up sorta, kinda early because I was having a weird nightmare about Freddy Cougar, yeah seriously!

Then I decided that I was going to go to Pier 1 Imports to pick up a few things I had seen online. I called to make sure they had the Magnet Board that I really wanted and they did! Woot Woot! One left and it is all mine. I also was in desperate need of some kind of hooks to hang up my purses since the other ones I tried just fell down and they had the cutest Seaglass Embossed Wall Hooks on sale for $7.99! I am obsessed and in love with them. They hold all my purses too. Bran, put it up immediately for me. Love him! Then I also needed something to hold my earrings and they had this cute section of jewelry and accessories there that I had no idea was in the store and I found this cute little bird one. It is so cute and goes well with the theme of my side of the room which is antiquish, if that’s even a word. 
Then after that Bran, my sister and I went to the movies to see Easy A and it was so funny! I love Emma Stone, she seriously rocks. Her humor and timing is amazing.

Now I am off to study for my two tests I have on Monday, lucky me! Below are pictures of my new additions to our room

Shopping Fever!

By on September 17, 2010

I definitely have a shopping bug. I shouldn’t be spending all my extra babysitting money on clothes but I can’t help it. I went to the mall thinking I was going to get some cheap t-shirts to wear to my nannying jobs and then I went into Forever21 and saw this skirt I wanted forever ago. I swear I think I was going to get it for New Years and never did. They had one left and I had grabbed this awesome green flowy tank with a cute back and thought this could be a match made in heaven. I tried it on and LOVED it. I of course took a picture there since I still don’t have a long mirror. My BFF is giving me hers since she is getting rid of it which is why I have yet to buy one. I will take more pics when I can but here is one for now.
Skirt: FOREVER21: Asymmetrical Pleated Skirt
Top: FOREVER21: Couldn’t find link.

{one} have you ever won a trophy? if yes, for what?
My sister and I won a trophy for a three legged race one 4th of July. lol

{two} what was your favorite subject in school?
This is a hard one, I didn’t really like anything in high school, I skipped a lot. Middle school I loved peer counseling and now I am a psych major so I guess that makes sense. Oh and Chorus.

{three} what time do you get up in the morning?
Alarm went off at 7 and I snoozed till 7:25. This only occurs on Tues. and Wed. other days I sleep till I want to get up so usually 9 or 10AM.

{four} if you could open your own business, what would it be?
I am a nanny and in a sense it’s like having your own business. I wouldn’t mind actually having a nanny agency though.

{five} if you could spend the evening with one rock star/band, who would it be?
Jack Johnson, hands down my all time favorite ever!

{six} what sitcom character reminds you of you?
I am trying to think what sitcoms I still watch or have watched in the past. Oh! I got it, Michelle Tanner from Full House. I am the youngest in my family and have always been super cute.

{seven} what are the 3 most important things to you?
Being happy with myself, if I am not happy with myself I can’t be happy with anything else in my life, my husband and my relationship and of course family and friends.

{eight} chips or popcorn?
Hmm, I am not a huge chip or popcorn eater. It really depends on what I am doing or eating. If I am eating a sub I get chips, if I am watching a movie at the theater then popcorn otherwise I don’t really eat either.

{nine} have you ever ordered anything from an infomercial?
I am trying to think…I know I told my husband I really wanted this ring from QVC but I don’t think I actually saw it on TV.

{ten} what is one thing that you are grateful for today?
only one? My husband!

now it’s your turn!
happy wednesday…

Oh yeah, I got them!

By on September 13, 2010
Last night I convinced my awesome husband to go with me and get the boots. I couldn’t wait till later in the week. I just had to have them! So we went and got them and they were right where I hid them. Yeah, that’s right, I hid them just in case! Here are my amazing boots. This is what I wore to my classes today.
This isn’t my room or mirror so ignore the funky mirror.

Cute Boots!

By on September 12, 2010

I am obsessed with boots. I love them. This is a reason I need to get out of South Florida. There is little reason to wear boots since our fall is still hot and our winters are like everyone else’s Fall.

Today Ash and I went to Target so she could go through every clearance section possible in the store and of course I noticed the ton of boots in the shoe section.  The first pair I see I fall in love with. I was so in love with them. I put them on and took a picture and sent them to Branden begging him to let me get them (obviously I am not great at saving money). I usually know this means I have negotiate. So I tell him I am making an extra $20 babysitting on Wed. because I will also have Devon and then I will be working both my other part time jobs. I send him the picture and of course he loves them on me and says “you can definitely get them next week” lol. I love it! I bet if they didn’t have a little heel he would of been like no you just got a pair of boots 2 weeks ago which he did mention before he saw the pic I sent him.

I am dying, I can not wait till next week. I think I will get them Friday before I babysit so I can wear them and show the girls. They are so cute. They are 13 and 8 and then the baby just turned 1 so the girls and I are throwing the baby a mini bday party just us four. The girls are like my little sisters since I have been watching them since the 8 year old was 2 and she is a little fashionista. The 13 year old is getting into clothes that I like so its always fun to show her new things I get.

Ok here is a pic of the boots.

I got a pocket full of sunshine, woo ooohh

I am so excited to see the movie Easy A. I LOVE comedies. I am not a huge romance girl, I get bored with a lot of them so when see a comedy I get super pumped. The other night I was watching a show and they were playing sneak peaks from Easy A and they showed this clip and I was cracking up.
I love this clip because it’s so realistic. When you hear a song and you are like I hate this song and then you get it stuck in your head and end up loving and singing your heart out to it. Or maybe it’s just me?

Clip was posted in another post because for some reason it won’t let me do it on this one. Weird!
