Happy Birthday Lil Bro

My sweet brother-in-law came to see us this past weekend. It is always great to see him. Even better we got to celebrate his Birthday with him. He is 23. Crazy to think we are all growing up :( I wish Stacy could have come to visit. I definitely don't get to see those 2 as much as I would like. But I am determined for all of us to go on a vacay together, so that we can have some relaxing, quality time to just chill and catch up! But anyways Happy Birthday Tad! Here are some pics from the weekend.

I love my job

About 3 months ago I folded my last panty at the palace and have taken on a new challenge. I learned so much from my years at V.S. and met some people who will be my friends for a very long time! A little birdie told me about a position available at Sephora, and I jumped at the opportunity. I went through 3 interviews and am now the Operations Manager of store #498 here in the 'Burg. I love my job and have already learned so much, and met some great people. Not to mention all the goodies they have given me :):):) I will post some reviews of products that I like and products that I think may have some opportunity! There are some products that I CAN'T wait to tell you about....but you will just have to wait :)

After 5 long years...

I finally got to see Amos Lee live in concert, and I couldn't have asked for better seats. I adore his music. Thank god for Seth catching this guy on Sirius coffee house when he was "New on the Scene" so many years ago. He has 3 CD's so do yourself a favor go scoop them up. I will post all the concert videos I took on my YouTube page.

Lush Soap Haul: Part 2


Lush Soap Haul: Part 1

Thought I would share my products with you guys! Lush is a company that I have recently just fell in love with. I love their products, and what their company stands for. They are all handmade, 100% vegetarian, organic products, that aren't animal tested. Just for the record, I know that this stuff is kind of frivolous, and I understand that organic soaps and bubble bars aren't a necessity. However I am not one of those girls who gets her weekly mani/pedi and massages and facials, so after a long crazy day at work to be able to come home and pamper myself from the comfort of my own bathroom really makes me happy and it is one of the simple things in life I really enjoy.

Starting Over, Yet Again

So I thought I would knock the dust off the Ole' Blog and write a post. It's weird I go through phases where I am really into my blog and then I will neglect it for months. My poor little blog is going to need therapy with the way that I am treating it. Since my last post, Seth and I have moved, both started new jobs and we now have a new member of the Phelps family....Mack (the bulldog) :) Other than that we are just our same old selves. So hopefully it wont be 6 months before I decide to write again, but you just never know. ha

So glad I missed this

Heidi Montage Pratt whatever her name is performed during the Miss Universe Pageant. I can only imagine what a tremendous train wreck this was. It it was anything as lame as her Playboy Pictorial then god help us. And is it me or does that outfit look oddly familiar. Hmm I don't know.

Tad and Stacy Phelps

I just want to say how happy I am for my lil brother and his beautiful bride!! They had an amazing beach wedding July 18th in Sea Grove, FL. The whole family was there and it was just a perfect day. The amazing Julia Holman was there working her magic behind the camera. Here is a sneek peak of what is to come.

D.C. and Me

I have had alot going on lately. Alot of work, and a lil bit of traveling. July was a busy month for the Phelps Kids. The whirl wind month started with a trip to D.C. to visit my long time friend Juleah. Besides getting locked on the Metro, it was a very fun trip. Juleah took us on a tour and showed us all the things you must see if you go to our Nations Capital. The Washington Monument, The White House, The Capital Building, and Lincoln Memorial. Alot of walking to say the least. Here are some photos from our trip.

Chris Brown "Moon Walks" his way back on the radar

Last night the Hubs, myself and our boy Brian went to the America's Most Wanted Concert at the Virginia Beach Ampitheater. To say the least it was amazing. Soulja Boy, Jeezy, and Lil Wayne killed it. Then a guest appearance by our local boy Chris Brown made the crowd go crazy. Chris did a MJ tribute by Moon Walking across the stage to Billie Jean, and I caught the whole thing with my camera. featured my video on their website. Check it out...

Petie is Best in B.C.

We already knew Petie was Super Cute, but it's always good to make it official with a Trophy and a Nice Big Plaque. He Took home "Cutest Dog" and "Best in Show" at the 2009 Catfish Festival Dog Show. We are so proud of him!!!

Death By Biscuit (Almost)

So to give you a lil background of the situation, my husband is in school right now because he is switching jobs in the navy. He usually has to get up around 4:30 or 5:30 am depending on the day. Some mornings they have to P.T so they are running anywhere from 3 to 7 miles as soon as they get there. Needless to say my hubs isn't particularly a morning person. He gets up, gets dressed, and heads out the door in a zombie like manner. He is usually in school until like 5:00 or 6:00 pm. So that is like 12 hours a day that he is putting in.
Being the caring wife that I am :) I noticed that Hubs wasn't eating ANYTHING before he left in the mornings. I am a HUGE Advocate for breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day and gets your whole body ready to seize the day. So I went to the grocery and found some good quick breakfast options for Seth. Things that don't require any prep time or even that much brain power to fix, because as mentioned above Seth is in zombie mode. One of which was these little mini Microwavable Sausage Biscuits. 35 seconds in the microwave and ta-da...Breakfast.
Everything was going smoothly with the whole breakfast thing, until this morning I wake up to the smell of something BURNING. Which if you have never had the pleasure of waking up to a face full of smokiness, let me reassure you, your not missing out. Seth comes into the bedroom and says "Don't mind the smell, everything is ok. I just burned my biscuit." In your mind you are thinking "Oh they biscuit just got overcooked" or " Maybe he is over exaggerating"

Real quick, for those of you who don't know, a mini frozen sausage biscuit in its original form looks something like this...

But I am thinking to myself from the intensity of the smell it has to be worse than what I am imagining. I get up go into the kitchen and this is what I find....

Wrapped up in a paper towel

As I start to unfold this monstrosity, it is getting worse

And this is what the poor lil biscuit looks like now.

Really I have never seen anything like this

So in his zombie like state, instead of cooking the biscuit for 35 seconds, Seth set the microwave for 3:35 seconds! WOW! So I guess from here on out we are doing Cinnamon Toast Crunch from here on out!

Lazy Sunday

Today was just a great day. Seth and I have been working opposite schedules lately and really havent gotten much quality time. Today we were both off, so we started the day with a mini marathon of 30 Rock. After we chilled in the living room, Seth playing madden and I was surfing the net. Thats called "Paralell Time". HAHAHA! Not really doing the same thing together but we are right beside one another to chat and crack jokes. After "P.T." it was time for an afternoon nap. Woke up, got ready and went to see the Hangover. It was freakin hilarious. A def go see. Then dinner and drinks at Texas Roadhouse. Came home, More 30 Rock, and then it was Laker time. Simple day, but a great way to start the Shitty work week that I have ahead of me!
Hope everyone has a great week!
After Seth Stumped him toe on the steps! It was so funny!
Laughing at me doing and impression of the "STUMPING"
We are just goofy. We cant help it

Holy Smokes S.J.P. is one HOT Momma!!

People can say what they want about my beloved Sarah Jessica, but your all just haters!!


We love you and hope you have a FANTASTIC 29th Birthday! :)

My baby Bubba is all grown up

He graduated High School on Saturday and I am still on shock. It feels like yesterday he was playing little league, and bringing home fingerpaints!! (SNIFF SNIFF) I guess they can't stay little forever. God help us when Mo gets to high school. HaHa
Congrats Bubba. We are all so proud of you!!!
