Maybe I'm just easily amused but I think this is hilarious!

Create your own ElfYourself

Friend Makin' Monday

It's been a while since I've participated in FMM so I thought I would join in on the fun today and try my best to do it every Monday once again.

1. Favorite websites? (In)Courage , Blissfully Domestic, and Wives of Faith

2. Favorite colors? chocolate brown & aqua blue

3. Facebook? For security reasons I will not be sharing it. Sorry!

4. Favorite Christmas songs? Ohh, this is a tough one because I love soo many! I narrowed it down to three though..

Judy Garland's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

"Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by U2

and "I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day" by Casting Crowns

5. Christmas tree: Real or fake? Well, I currently have a fake tree but I prefer real ones. Growing up my parents would always take me to a tree farm the day after Thanksgiving so that I could choose a tree.. it was our tradition (until they divorced) and I loved it! {To this day the smell of peppermint reminds me of that farm because the office always smelled like peppermints.} I can't wait for Jeremy and I to have babies so I can continue that tradition with them.

6. Hottest celebrity? I'm torn between two--Gilles Marini and Gerard Butler!

7. Favorite restaurant? Chili's. They make the best southwestern eggrolls! And don't get me started on their molten chocolate cake... OMG.. mmmm!!

8. Favorite magazine? Woman's Day

9. Favorite thing to drink around the holidays? Hot chocolate

10. Favorite Christmas movies? The Holiday, Christmas Vacation, and Elf

My Little Monster

Thursday, November 26, 2009

His favorite color has been yellow since he was three years old. He is a pro at playing the air guitar, and he dreams of being a rock star when he grows up. He would also like to be a solider so he can save the world from the bad guys. {He once told his aunt not to cry when he becomes a soldier because he promises to come back safely to her after he kicks the bad guy's butts.} He loves to watch cartoons and sci-fi movies. Macaroni & cheese is his favorite meal. He loves animals and making new friends. His face lights up when he learns something new. He likes to pick on his sisters but will beat up anyone else that does it. His favorite day of the week is Friday because that means he gets to see his favorite aunt. He is my whole world, and today he turns seven!!

Happy Birthday My Little Monster!

Aunt Ree-Ree loves you!

New Moon

Sunday, November 22, 2009

I think I may have fractured a bone in my right foot on Thursday night. =\

{It's embarrassing how it happened!}

I tripped over my laptop power cord. (Have I ever mentioned I'm way too clumsy?) I fell face first on the floor and somehow managed to mess my foot up. My neighbors probably thought I was being murdered because I was crying & screaming so loud! It was verrrry painful...


Being the obsessed devoted Twilight fan that I am, I went to the midnight showing of New Moon instead of going to the ER to make sure I didn't actually break anything! Just for the record though, I bought my tickets in advance and it was nonrefundable so I had to go--even if I was in tons of pain. ;)

I still can't believe I waited 3.5 hours in a theater just to see a movie.. but I did with a swollen and throbbing foot.. and it was soooo worth it!!

And.. okay.. I admit I felt like a dirty old woman for drooling over Jacob! But honestly, can ya blame me???

Thank you to all the brave men and women {past and present} who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom.

..but of course I will :)
Because he is soooo worth it!!


Fort Hood Shooting

Thursday, November 5, 2009

I was glued to my TV all afternoon. I can't even begin to explain how sick I felt as I heard the reports of what was happening at Fort Hood.. especially when I found out that it was caused by one of our own soldiers...

Suddenly I didn't feel so safe living in a military community...

. . .

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families & friends that lost a loved one at Fort Hood today.

  • I have nothing interesting going on. No, seriously.. my life is VERY boring right now. This is usually how my day goes: wake up to J calling, talk to him for 15 minutes, force myself to get out of bed, feed Max (the dog), eat breakfast lunch, clean the kitchen, do a load of laundry, make a list of things that I need to get or do out in town, pick up around the house, go to town, come home and have dinner, shower, watch TV until I'm either falling asleep on the couch or Jeremy calls, and then bed. {If I were on a reality TV show it would get terrible ratings because I'm that boring.}
  • Yeah, I know.. I need a hobby!! My only problem is that I have no idea what to try. A lot of military wives become runners while their husbands are deployed.. which is awesome but I never liked running so that is out of the question for me. I would probably die trying anyway. I was thinking of finding a pottery or cake decorating class. Anything artsy-fartsy sounds fun to me.
  • My husband has become a vegetarian... and frankly, it intimidates me!! He keeps asking if I've tried it yet. I haven't. I keep finding excuses to put it off. (My excuse this week is that I've been searching for a good + easy vegetarian cookbook but I'm not having any luck.) He keeps talking about going to the gym and how much weight he has lost... while I'm sitting at home eating tons of fast food and gaining weight!! It's making me super self conscience about my body. =\
  • I have a friend that has been trying to convince me to go to the gym with her but I have two issues with that.. #1, I don't like going to coed gyms.. and #2, I don't want to pay an arm and a leg to workout. I could always take advantage of the gym on base because it's free but it's coed and that just makes me super uncomfortable. I have no idea why, it just does! I was thinking of buying a workout DVD so I can do it in the privacy of my own home.. but I'm worried I will buy the DVD and it will collect dust.
  • I need to learn how to stop making excuses and start doing things!!
