 Testing....testing..... is this thing on? ....

I'm here, you're here, let's just jump into things because a lot has have happened!

1. The twins are starting school in August. What?! when did they get old enough for school?!

2. Ethan got his first stitches by falling off the toilet and going face first into the side of the tub.

3. The twins are 100% potty trained.... About time....

4. Our entire bathroom flooded and we had to have the entire tub and tiles replaced.

I think that pretty much covers everything.
yeaaaa, now that I write everything down, my life is pretty boring.
But if you follow me on instagram, then you're pretty much caught up on everything!

But in case you don't, I'm just going to leave these here.

























I've missed you guys.
When people bring up " Oh I didnt see that on your blog?", I get really sad because well, there's been nothing on my blog.
I want to be back, I really do, but I also can't make any promises.
So here is to trying!

 Such a beautiful day.
 Where did my baby go?! Who is this grown up boy?!
 This girl decided to dress herself today. Can you guess her favorite color?

Hot, less hot, kinda hot and very hot.

 Just by looking at pictures of us today, you wouldn't even know that it's winter.


 I wish I could say that it's just unseasonably warm for this time of year but the truth is that this is just how Florida is. It's normal for 80 degree weather here in the winter and the weather man is always saying, if you don't like the weather, just wait 10 minutes and it will change.
Rain and thunder storms come out of nowhere, one second it's freezing and the next you're burning up but today, it was perfect.


 (Be still my beating heart)

Sadly I'm still sick.
I was up til about 2 am having a coughing fit and when I finally felt like I was asleep, it was like I just blinked my eyes and then it was time to wake up so today was a very lazy day.
I've come to realize that things are a lot easier when I just sit outside with the kids.
They don't fight with each other, the run off so much energy and I have some time to just sit back and rest.

Time for NyQuil shots and lots of rest.
See, I told you I was back. ;)

Playing catch up. (again) Christmas 2014!




So you've missed a lot and I've failed to fill you in!
So I guess we are both in a little hot water on that one.
First thing's first, Christmas.
I really thought that this year was going to be the year that they smiled.....
I had so much hope that they would and after waiting for two hours for Santa, I believed that they would but no, they cried more this year than they ever have.
All week they begged and begged to see Santa and what do I get?!
Come on!!
 Can we not talk about how grown up they look? Because that would be great!




Christmas came and went so quickly, I felt like I blinked and it was over.
Over all tho, I think it was the best one so far. I use to think being a kid on Christmas morning was the best feeling ever but I couldn't be more wrong. Nothing made me happier than seeing them open up their presents and the smiles on their faces.
It makes all the stress and melt downs of Christmas shopping seem worth it which is saying a lot seeing how I was still shopping on Christmas eve!
The only down fall is that I got sick on Christmas and I'm STILL dealing with this awful cough.
So I'm going to catch up on some much needed sleep and I hope I get over it soon.
If not, I'm afraid my eyeballs might pop out.
Goodnight!

New Year New Me.

I'm alive!
I know, I owe you all an explanation and apologies and la de da de da... but for a while there I had really given up on this whole blogging thing. I was bored, I didn't know if I could write anymore and I didn't know what I was writing for. I've said it before, I started this blog for my grandma and now it just kind of felt empty.

As the new year has come around I feel like it is time for a change. I still love this blog, I love everything that I have put into it and what it meant to me and I'm sorry that I ever wanted to leave it or make anyone feel like I was throwing it away. It has kept me sane on days that I thought I was going to go mad and I have comfort in reading past post that gave my grandmother so much joy.
If you're still here from previous post, thank you and I love you but if you are new, here is a quick run down.

  • My name is Melissa Juliet and I am twenty-four years old.
  • I am married to the love of my life, he is so supportive of what I do and what I am passionate about and is always pushing me to be the best me that I can be.
  • I have twins! They turned three in August and their names are Ethan and Emily.
  • Make up is a huge part of my life, I plan on making this a full time career out of it.
  • I love wine, it goes without saying and I need to say no more.

I am starting new which is the reasoning behind said bold points above.
I want to make this blog into something I love again and to look forward to posting more.
I'm still going to post about our daily lives but I would like to bring makeup trick, tips and tutorials.
So if you're with me, enjoy the ride and I'll see you soon!

Goodnight.

Recent happenings.

2:30am? Check!
Not sleeping? Check!
Toothache? Check!
I have been up trying to find something to relieve this horrible pain in my tooth with no luck, I might have actually made things worse with a few things, but hey, I'm pretty desperate.
I started out searching for pain reliever, duh.
With no luck I moved on to the next cabinet which holds all the liquor.
I hate the taste of liquor, honestly we have it for when people come over, some of it has been in my cabinet above my stove since last New Years.
But agai, I'm desperate so I pour some tequila on a shot glass and in my mind I'm like " Okay, use this like mouth wash, swish it on the painful tooth and it will go away."
Oh my y'all, never again.
That was so nasty, didn't help the pain and I almost threw up.
NEXT, I read mixing salt and pepper and a few drops of water to make a paste and putting it on the pain would help BUT WHAT THEY FAIL TO MENTION IS HOW BADLY THAT MUCH PEPPER BURNS YOUR MOUTH!
Then I wanted to throw up and cry.
Moved on to warm water and salt and that kinda made it a little better, but not so much where I can sleep. I have been in bed for hours just tossing and turning, praying for sleep.
So here I am, going on 3am and I don't know what to do.
I can't stay up and I can't go to sleep.

I guess since it's been a hot minute since I've posted, I owe you guys an update or as I like to call it, "Recent happenings".
1. Our landlord sucks and can stick it where the sun don't shine for all I care.
I love renting, it our old house, when something broke, our realtor fixed it.
This new house, when something breaks, our landlord tells us we don't need it.
Our disposal broke the day before my birthday and it's still broken almost three weeks later.
Our landlord sent a plumber over and he looked at it and said we just needed a new one.
Told us he would contact our landlord, get it approved and be over to install it.
The plumber calls a few days later, tells us that it's been approved and he will be over sometime that week. The entire week went by and we heard nothing from him.
So we call and he tells us, " oh yea, your landlord told me to just forget about it because you guys don't need one."
At this point, I had a weeks worth of dishes in my sink because my sink was backed up and I couldn't wash anything, so take a minute, feel my anger.
This poor soul thinks I'm just going to forget about it?
I am seriously like the last person you want to double cross.
I can be so sweet and nice but you piss me off and I get freaking crazy. And not like yell at you and call you names kind of crazy, more like moving out and hiding a dead fish in the chimney.
He's just really a bad person, he brags about owning a million dollar company and having all these cars and like he travels to all these beautiful places but he can't put in a new disposal?
$100 is just too much.
Even tho we pay $925 to live here each month.

All I have to say about people like this is karma sucks and when you get greedy, here comes karma to take it all away so you can be back
Ugh! Just don't even get me started.
I'm ready to move, it sucks because this would be our third time moving in two years, but the last house was too small, this house is just too much work, I'm hoping for a house that we can just live in for a while.
I just need to sit.
I don't think that's too much to ask for.

Happy Halloween & Happy Birthday! 2014

 Well, this blog post is long over due.
With Halloween comes my birthday so things start to get a little out of hand and if you follow me on instagram, you know why.
I really had the best weekend and birthday that I've had in a really long time.
Le husband took Friday (Halloween) off from work, we slept in, we watched scary cartoons and spent the evening with family.
This year was by far the best Halloween to date!

 We then had an entire day on Saturday to stuff ourselves with candy, do some last minute cleaning and prepare ourselves for my birthday festivities on Sunday.
Looking back on it now, with how much wine was involved in this night, it might have been a good idea to celebrate on Saturday but I've always been really weird about having my birthday on a day that my birthday isn't actually on and then doing nothing on my real birthday.
Because you can't say " Okay, everyone has to wear this tacky party hat because it's my birthday!" because it's not really your birthday and you don't hold that kind of power until your actual birthday.



 It actually turned out to be a wonderful day.
The weather has cold and crisp, not a cloud in the sky and perfect for a nice fire and even tho it's my first birthday without my grandma and I missed her so terribly, I have a feeling she had a hand in this perfect weather making such a wonderful birthday surprise. I mean it dropped 30 degrees in a matter of hours, that never happens.

Miracle or coincidence, you were still there.
