I modified your question a bit to format the code blocks. Be sure to check out the Markdown Cheatsheet link below the text editor for more information.

I assume by 'my css...' you are referring to the style.css file. You can get the stylesheet for the theme using the following

wp_enqueue_style( 'style-name', get_stylesheet_uri() );

This will load the style.css file found in the theme root.

This was brutal. I copied and paste wrong code. Doctype is supposed to go in the head. I had the correct code before, the problem was my functions.php file was singular not plural. grabs head 2hrs and I figured this out finally. functions.php, everyone! not function.php.
