So, my dream piano has been on my mind a lot lately. And my husband told me to start saving my money. He reccommended saving $20 out of my budget money every 2 weeks and use that for my piano. Which if you do the math that would be over 5 years!!! But yesterday he offered me a SWEET deal. He asked me to take over his Rustico Blog. It was started when he revamped the Rustico website a few years ago but hasnt been touched again...till now! :) He is going to pay me $25 per post. LOVE IT! This will make my $2500 goal come much quicker than 5 years to get my dream piano. And who knows maybe KSL and Craigslist will have even sweeter deals in the upcoming months. We shall see!
So Im not necessarily going to shake my money maker in order to raise money for my newest dream. But Im definately going to shake things up over at Rustico. At least with their blog :) Im so excited to start. Hey! I wonder if this post counts as a Rustico Blog post! Afterall it will get some traffic their way right? haha! LOVE IT!

Lesson #1 Dr Torez (Callie) was struggling in her current relationship of wanting children and wondering when is the best time to start a family since this was something she is really passionate about. Bailey's response, "Never! Its never a good time to have kids! BUT its the best decision you can ever make. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning with your little child jumping into bed with you and snuggling up to his Mommy. It makes your heart melt. You ask when is it a good time? Never, would be my answer bc kids definately throw a wrench in the mix. But honestly I wouldnt want to have a life without my son. He's what makes my world worth living."
Lesson #2 There was a women who had been in a car accident and was pinned under her burning car. She was admitted into a burn unit for several months. During that time she met her best friend (another burn victim). The woman was coming to have a surgery to get hair implants bc her head was bald on one side from her bad burns. She was so excited to look "somewhat" normal but in her pre-op visit her Dr realized 3 of her fingers needed to be amputated which meant she would not be able to do her cosmetic surgery bc of her severe infection on her hand. Needless to say this devistated the woman! And her friend quickly responded, "We can do this! You need to be greatful to even be alive! We have each other. We will get past this" The woman responded with frustration, "Im losing 3 of my fingers!" Then her friend repeated, "We are so lucky to be here. We have each other. Be positive, look at the bright side..." Then Dr Bailey interrupts, "NO! No, you dont have to be positive. Your allowed to cry! You were coming here for an exciting surgery to give you your hair back and instead your losing 3 of your fingers. Its ok to be mad. Its ok you can cry! Tomorrow you can be happy! But today lets cry."
To sum it up:
I LOVE that I have 3 beautiful kids.
Its ok to cry today."Tomorrow you can be happy".

Last night an awful thing happened!!! My Iphone was out of my possession for 10 min while at a family picnic and I heard it ring so I go to my purse pick it up and what words come out of my mouth? OMG! My screen was totally cracked/shattered. Seriously! How the H did this happen????
No worries, right? BC I have the Apple Protection Plan. "It covers everything except water damage"...or so I was told. Long story short. I have been on the phone with Apple reps and ATT reps. Both are saying it will cost $199 to replace my phone. So why again did I drop the extra $50 on a protection plan that does nothing? Good question! So to wrap it up, I HATE the APPLE PROTECTION PLAN...YES...HATE IT! And if you know me I do not use this word lightly. So this is serious business. EW!
However, it will be ok. Why is everything gonna be ok you ask???? BC Usher Hearts me! :)

I have always thought Beyonce is so beautiful. She is a great dancer, has gorgeous hair, AMAZING voice, rockin body, and she always seems so classy on awards shows. When I first heard her song "If I Were a Boy" on the radio I loved it right away. Not bc I understood what it was about but bc it was such a beautiful song. Well one day I wanted to know what she meant by "if I were a boy", so I YouTube'd it! Here is the video...Its pretty much a little mini movie where she is a police officer and compares 2 of her relationships: one with her boyfriend and the other with her partner at work. I LOVE this music video! And the ending is so not what you would expect. Its one of those story lines that make you really sympathize for one character and then in the end it all changes. Watch it! You will love it too.
wouldnt want a fun set of paystees to cheer you up!
We put them on clear bandaids to make them really POP! :) And yes those are dangly jingle bells. LOVE it!Cancer...Hate it! Paystees for a friend with no nipple...She LOVED it! And if you really want to go all out; here's an idea for Testicular Cancer....LOVE it!

Ok here I go! Tony Stark...Robert Downey Jr. I love his characters he has been playing in movies lately. Iron Man 2: Love It! I love his "bordering narcisism". I love his dry humor. I love the fun relationship between him and Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow). She is so perfect for him. Just when he is about to get out of control she knows just what to do or say to put him in check. And you can tell he totally appreciates her and respects her input. I dont like Peppers new assistant however, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johannson). She bugs! Ever since she cheated with a married man in "He Just Not That Into You" I cant stand her nastiness! But Iron Man 2...Dig it!
Sherlock Holmes: LOVE IT!!! I love how his mind works. He is a genius...a crazy genius but nonetheless a genius. The relationship between Sherlock and Watson is so much fun to watch. They are hillarious together! Again, Sherlock tends to get out of control and yet Watson is there to bring him back to reality and help him be more appropriate (just like Pepper with Tony Stark). Sherlock Holmes is now one of my top 5 favorite movies.
