my alter ego

Usually for the Fall I will die my hair a darker color. Well here is the new me.....

It's my alter ego Bridgett

She is a little spunkier and edgier then Breanne.

When I told a co-worker this he said, "oh you mean your a pregnant Breanne" lol, guess you had to know me when I was pregnant, apparently I was no nonsense type of girl to put it nicely.

Most of my family members don't like the brown as much as my natural blonde. Understandable but I really enjoy the change. In a couple of months though I will be begging for my blonde back though.

The first day of Autumn is Friday!!!! Although I am a little disappointed in myself that I haven't yet put my fall stuff up yet. Shame Shame.

My birthday wish list

My birthday is in 2 weeks and 2 days! Whoot Whoot for me. :)

If you are having a hard time deciding on what to get me let me help you out a bit...

1. I really need this pumpkin spice syrup, and at $7.95 what a Deal. I couldn't even buy 2 pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks for that price.

2. These adorable Fall riding boots. Size 8 1/2 please ( Ps. I will take them from any store as long as they are similar in color - Hey I am not picky.)

3. This adorable pyrex/corning ware dish. I can't believe I don't have this pattern in my collection. It is so cute

4.A plain white collared shirt. Looks so cute layered underneath a cute sweater with belt.

5. A Nook/Kindle/E-reader. I know I am really going out on a limb here but what if one of my friend's wins the lottery? Wouldn't I be foolish for not asking?

6. I always enjoy gift cards. I would like to buy new sweaters and jeans for the fall.

7. I would also like a date night with the hubby. We haven't been to Johnny Carinos in a long time.....

8. (just added) I also need a new crock pot, a bigger crock pot. I plan to use it a lot this fall/winter so much that I need two! :) I kind of dig the Lock and carry ( or whatever they are called)

Thanks for stopping by. I realize this wasn't fun for anyone else besides me! :)

Carmel apple salad

For those of you on Pinterest you have probably seen the pictures of the Carmel Apple Salad or also called Candy Apple Salad. Let me just tell you it is Delish! A co-worker made this salad yesterday and I loved it. It really does taste like a carmel apple.

The great part is the recipe is so simple:

Cool Whip
Apples - peeled, cored, diced
Grapes - sliced
Snickers bar - Frozen, chopped up
Mix it all together.

That's it. And oh so good. It would be perfect to make for any potluck.

Gone with the Wind

So is it sad or bad that I have never seen Gone with the Wind? (or Casablanca or Breakfast at Tiffany's.) And I definitely haven't read it either.

My step-dad has an awesome collection of videos. Each Kid (remind you we are all in our 20's) has a rental card. We can check out a movie but have to bring it back before checking out another movie. My card was almost suspended once. Well I got really lucky because while my mom and Ken were on a super awesome vacation in Hawaii I got a 4 for 1 deal. One of the movies I picked was Gone with the Wind.

Wow first I didn't realize that it was 4 hours long, a 2 disk DVD. I am having a little trouble understanding exactly what everyone is saying but I get the gist of it. ;)

So I finished disk 1 and am on to disk 2. I am really enjoying it so far and can't wait to see the 2nd half.

I will say though that one thing I find really annoying is the constant playing of background music. At times I can hardly hear what the actors are trying to say. Other then that it is all good.

On a funny note. Gracie was in the room playing on her computer when the scene with Prissy talking to Scarlet about not knowing how to birth no baby was on. Gracie looked at me and said, " is she supposed to be a baby or something?" I thought that was funny. Was her that her real voice though or were they just trying to portray her as being younger?

So are there any other movies I should watch that are classics? What is your favorite part of the movie?

Funny things said by the girls

Leaving in Franklin there aren't many department stores. We have Kohl's and Wal-Mart. Kohl's is way to expensive for me, so if I need to buy socks and underwear for the girls I go to Wal-Mart. The girls think this is some sort of treat. They Love going to Wal-Mart.

While shopping we passed by an elderly lady and very nonchalantly Lilly said to me while pointing at her, "I want to eat her"

Unsure if the lady heard us or not, I then starting pushing the cart very swiftly....

A few minutes later, Lilly saw a man. The only resemblance he had of Danny was that his hair was very short and thinning. Lilly asked him if he was her Daddy. I started laughing only because I was uncomfortable. As the gentleman politely smiled at me I said. "Sorry, but she knows who her daddy is."

Usually when we go to Wal-Mart we see crazy people. Today we were the crazy people!
