Saturday morning I woke up and picked up the house..I had my sisters and best friend over for a Mary Kay party. I like Mary Kay- but I am really not impressed with their eye shadow colors or lipstick! I was trying to find a more "fall/winter" lipstick shade. I chose raisinberry:
And it looked Brown on me!! So I couldn't decide on anything. It was good to get together with my girls though.
J's company had a Halloween party later that night so we got dressed up and went. Our costumes were very "last minute" ha..Jordan wore some velvet, paisley print pants and one of his mother's old frilly shirts. He was a mix between a hippie/woman..pretty interesting! I just wore some of J's scrubs, his nametag and surgery mask. Boring! We will have better costumes for the Halloween party we're going to this coming Saturday!
Sunday, we went to my sister's for lunch and watched the Chiefs play booo :( deep cleaned my closet and watched the Season Finale of My Antonio. I kept thinking he was going to bring Tully back :( I know the show was probably made up, but I really feel like they had true love! When she was sent home last week I actually cried! J definetly made fun of me for that. Anyway, Antonio picked Brooke. No surprise there. I wonder if they'll have a reunion show next week..cross your fingers! I will miss looking at you, Antonio!!
Just a little update, I have been on Synthroid for a week now. I can't tell any difference, but I never really felt "sick" before I found out about having Hypothyroidism. I'm only on 50mg so it will be interesting to see where my levels are in 4weeks.
I also made the decision to go back to school for the spring semester. My major: elementary education! I'm going to take night classes 12 credit hours, and work full time also. I have faith I can do it. I have a great support system from my husband and I realized last Thursday after a really bad day, that I don't want to work in insurance the rest of my life. It can be depressing. J and I are going to the college on November 6th (my bday!!) to enroll. This may also put "trying to conceive" on the back burner..but we have plenty of time to worry about that in the future. I really just want a change of pace in my life.
Happy work week, everyone!

So I started my medication Synthroid for the hypothroidism on Sunday. Let me tell you, I haven't had a good night sleep since. I was tossing and turning all night last night and dreaming/half awake about work! I remember waking up, very frustrated and begging God to just let me fall sound asleep. I go back for a follow up in 5 weeks. I'm still trying to be optimistic and not get too negative, but I really hope I can adjust to this medication soon.
The weekend was just all right. Friday I went to the doctor, got my hair highlighted and ran errands around town. Then I went to visit my niece and nephew, gave them baths and read them their nightly books. Then I went to visit my aunt for her Birthday because she was in town. Then it was time to go pick J up from work. After I picked him up we decided to go to Old Chicago so he could work on his beer tour. I was so exhausted after we ate so we went home and called it a night.
Saturday, my sister and I scrapbooked for about four hours. We have been working on a scrapbook for our parents for Christmas and it is coming together very nicely! Then J and I were going to go see the new Gerard Burler movie (can't think of the name) but I just didn't have enough energy to sit through a movie..I was too worried I'd fall sleep. So we went to dinner and drank a margarita. Sunday, we got up, went to brunch and a Halloween store. Still not sure what we're going to dress up as for a Halloween party we're invited to this weekend! Any ideas for a cute couples costume?? I'm still thinking about being a hippie couple...
Happy work week, everyone!

I am optimistic though..I'm going to my PCP on Friday to get prescribed some medicine to regulate the thyroid issue. From what I've read (yes I'm still reading) hypothyroidism is easily managed. I think she is going to put me on Synthroid?? Anyone familiar with this drug? I am anxious to speak more with my doctor regarding this hypothyroidism whatchamacallit. I should have a better update on Friday about it.
I am also getting my hair done on Friday..just a good ol' touch up on the roots and trim on the bangs. It has been over a year and I am still growing out the Victoria Beckham bob. ugh, so annoying. Well, happy hump day..whoops, I mean wednesday :)

These ankle boots are cute! Love the plaid and would look adorable with a few of my outfits.
Okay, that's all I have right now..of course, just being with friends and family is all I really want, but these are my 3 wishes :)

What is your favorite brand/style jean??
Update: I wasn't liking South Beach..sorry if TMI but it was making me constipated despite drinking 4 20oz bottles of water a day. And I was too tired all the time. I'm back to my good ol' Weight Watchers..5th times a charm? I'm not going to meetings..they have upped their weekly price and I know the system. I just really need to stick to it. Who's with me??
