A Hilarious Hot Mess

Over the past few weeks I have been consumed by end of semester projects. My poor family has been subsisting on frozen food. I am, needless to say, a complete hot mess and my house…. oh the horror… take a peek for yourself and FYI I meant to say that I haven’t cleaned house in over 2 weeks.

Yet somehow this man still loves me and took me out to celebrate his birthday a bit early last Saturday. I think it was the last time my hair and makeup were done. The tree is STILL without a topper and ornaments.

Hang in there honey, it’s almost over. Until next semester.

Happy, happy birthday to my knight in Christmas lit armor.

You are almost done! I agree with you-kids stay in school! My mom went back to school when I was in elementary school and I still remember her studying all night... Dad and I would make enchiladas(it was the only thing he could make)...maybe that's why my mom still doesn't like our enchiladas!

You look stunning! Not a drop of yellow highlighter in sight, either!
Hang in there. You will succeed, and it will all be gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing....oh how true, how true...I tell my children that quitting is not an option when they get really tired of college, because I too know what it is like to try to go back when you have a family. It's very difficult.
You should be so proud of yourself...your hubby is too, I'm sure!

Laura, you both look stunning! Happy birthday to that gorgeous hunk!

Have a lovely Christmas week ~

Oh yes! I just finished a presentation this morning, have an exam tomorrow and one more paper due before Christmas. I HEAR you, sister, loud and clear, and I ECHO your comments - stay in school while you are young!

Love your video....been there. One year the tree was up with nothing on it until Christmas Eve when our son came home from college and brought his new girlfriend. They saw it as an adventure and got the tree and the whole house decorated while I was at work. She's been his wife for over 9 years now - sure do love her...and him!
This too shall pass for you - hang in there!

You two look gorgeous and ready to cut a rug! Sections of my house haven't been touched in much longer than 2 weeks and I'm not in the middle of finals. YOU CAN DO IT!!! I think you also look adorable in your video.

As you get older you will learn not to sweat the small stuff. Your ceducation is the most important.

That video cracks me up Laura! It took me 10 years to get my degree LOL BUT...I got it when I was 28ish, right before I got married and started my family. I REALLY don't know how you do it! Cheers to you! By the look beautiful in that dress! So pretty!

Craftymoose Crafts said...

At least your tree is up! I just had my last mini craft fair today, so now I can get started.

You are an inspiration to anyone who has wanted to get their degree and hasn't. Keep on keeping on Laura, it will be worth it.

Hang in there Laura, don't give up now, you are so close to your dream! You look so beautiful and I am pretty sure that is what Mr. Decor sees even if you are wearing highlighter jeans ;c)

Haha I have just gotten my 'puter back to being able to hear video; I did not know you owned a sweatshirt! Sent you many positive thoughts for finals; I hope the fam forgives the cleaning, if they are like mine, throwing some food at it works great. I made meringue mushrooms tonight and wished you were here. 2.0 tomorrow. I am so in high gear, even the pup girls are tired watching the activity. my best to the house~
