Babble, Babble...

Hey ya'll! I hope you are having a good week! Kind of a 'eh' week here...in a bit of a funk and need to work my way out of it.

I think the main reason for my funk is my Momma is not having a great week :( Round 3 of chemo (last Friday) has not been kind to her, so the past few days have been SUPER rough. I think she is starting to feel better today, but she has an appointment tomorrow am to have a port put in (more about ports, here ). She says she would just like a few days to be left alone with no one poking or prodding her. Also, she has been spending the majority of her time in her room. I am afraid she is getting depressed, which is completely understandable, but I need her to FIGHT! Totally had a breakdown on her last night (and felt terrible for doing so) but I think we both understand/appreciate each other a little more.

My Mom would straight up kill me if I posted a picture of her online...so I figure I will cheat and post an old picture of us (circa 1996....holeee high school Homecoming)


Ok, to lighten the mood a bit...here are a few of my random babbles....

*Project Runway All Stars had me initially SUPER excited but....no Tim or Heidi??? Makes me want to not watch...even though I will. I miss Tim!

*Last weekend, I got totally addicted to Shameless on Showtime! The first episode was like holeee way to much going on, but as the season went on..I am all in now! Anyone else watch?? P.S. What a hottie that Steve/Jimmy is....I could use a car stealing man like that in my life!

*My aunt has made mac-n-cheese twice in the past week trying to nail the recipe. Anyone have a 'go to' mac-n-cheese recipe?  I could eat the stuff daily, so I am not complaining....my jeans however......

*I swear if I wasn't so nosey, I would definitely cancel my FB. It is becoming more of a place to b*tch than anything else lately.

*I have hard such positive things about BirchBox that I think I am going to jump in and try it. Not sure if I will blog about it or not, seems like a lot of bloggie friends are getting BirchBox too and I don't want to saturate the blog world with it.

*Has anyone signed up for BeautyMint? Jessica Simpson in pimping it and I was intrigued at first, but I cancelled out of the screen before signing up. Since then, I get emails from them with lower and lower prices. Seems odd, no?


Ok, bloggie people...need your input. A few bloggie friends and I were tossing around the idea of doing a 1 time link up of 'old school' pictures of ourselves...you know, nothing better than making fun of yourself on the Internet with friends! We were thinking prom pictures, school pictures, etc.

So.... is this something you would participate in?? Thoughts???


  1. Hey Cara...I'm so sorry your mom is being put through it right now. Here's to wishing and praying for better days ahead. Cancer just plain sucks.

    Shameless is such a great show and I love Justin Chatwin!

    The best Mac 'n Cheese I ever made was from a Tyler Florence recipe. I think it's called "Tyler's Ultimate Mac 'n Cheese".

  2. I'm so sorry your mom is going through all this. My father passed away before he got to try chemo and stuff but I know how hard it is to have to watch a parent suffer. I feel for you. {{{HUGS}}}

  3. Sorry your mom is going through this...i would understand being depressed too but i'm sure she is a fighter. I miss Tim and Heidi on PR also. Especially Tim!


Hey ya'll, I just love reading your feedback! Thanks for stopping by!
