How would you clean puke out of a rug?

O-The joys of being a parent...
This morning my "Little Drama Queen" was complaining because she said she was "starving".. (Well that's what happens when she doesn't want to finish her dinner the night before) It took her longer than usual to get herself dressed and downstairs. I gave her one of her favorite breakfasts to eat (Dinosaur Oatmeal) thinking it would hurry her up. NO, she still sat there nibbling on her food.
After only a few bites she insisted she wasn't hungry anymore. I asked her if she felt sick and wanted to stay home, but she wanted to go to school...
She went to school and not even 30 minutes after school started the nurse called me to come pick her up, she felt sick and wanted to come home...
I got Princess home and she was in her bedroom when she puked, all over herself and the rug in her bedroom...

I had an Awesome Weekend!

Saturday was the Marine Corp Ball! The Ball is held every November to celebrate the Birthday of the Marine Corp which was November 10, 1775! The Ball was held at a nice resort on the other side of the island! We got a limo to get there and shared it with 4 other couples! We had so much fun! I think that's the most fun we have had at a ball yet and this was my 5th ball!
This pic is just a sneak peak of me and my cutie pie Hubby! Check out Wordless Wednesday for more pictures of us at the Ball and me in my Awesome dress!!

Also, to top off my weekend, I went to see "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" (part 1) yesterday!!! It was AWESOME!!!

Aloha Friday - Are You HTML/CSS Savvy?

Aloha Friday
This Weeks Question:
Are you HTML/CSS Savvy?

A: I am Now, and self taught I am proud to say! I have learned a lot across the internet thanks to lots of other blogs and websites who post about blogger hacks, CSS tips, etc etc... I have a somewhat Obsessive Compulsive need to constantly tweak and change my blog and make it look exactly the way I want it too. If you ever see anything on my blog you want to learn how to do or add to yours, just ask. I may start writing posts about blog tweaks I have learned on my own. I'm definitely not afraid to play around with my template code (as long as I back it up first). If I want to do something I will eventually figure out how. Trial and error....

Postcard Swap: NEVADA 16 of 50

I Love Las Vegas, its so much fun! Not to mention, Hubby and I were married there! I have been there 4 times and cant wait to go again someday after we get back to the Mainland!

Nevada Fun Facts (written on the back of the postcard):
Hoover Dam is the largest single public works project in the history of the United States, contains 3.25 million cubic yards of concrete, which is enough to pave a two-lane highway from San Francisco to New York.

Ginger Got a Whisker Cut

The other day, I picked up my kitty Ginger to give her some luvin and when I looked at her face I noticed something odd. Hubby was sitting next to me and I asked him "What's wrong with her whiskers? Don't they look weird, like they have been cut"?

Show YOUR Finesse, with The Rose Dress

I am so excited for the Marine Corp Ball on November 20th!! I cant wait to get my dress!! If you missed my previous post I ordered my dress online from TheRoseDress.com They have an Awesome selection! My friend B. (pictured below, doesn't she look Awesome!) ordered her dress from there and told me about the site. I haven't bought a new dress for the ball in Years and the last time I did, my dress had to fit me while I was pregnant... Its not as fun to dress shop when your pregnant. But if you needed to, The Rose Dress, would have something for you! In fact, I saw a picture on The Rose Dress Facebook page of a very pregnant woman (with her Marine) in a beautiful (non-maternity) dress!
There is a dress for EVERY occasion! Divided into category's such as, "Evening", "Cocktail", "Mother of the Bride", "Pageant", "Plus Size", so many to choose from I had a hard time narrowing it down to just one! But, I will need another dress next year!


My friend B., doesn't she look Awesome!!!
