Andre Christmas 2010

Now is the time everyone is running around like a mad dog trying to get all their gifts together and downing a few shots before driving out to the mall, Walmart, Target, etc. to fight other drivers in the parking lot to find that one prime parking spot before heading inside to fight over the last must have toy/shoe/purse/gadget of the season. May the Force be with you!

Days 67-60

Monday, October 25, 2010 1 comments
So this past week I saw my first Christmas commercial, which I planned on posting here, but I couldn't find it on YouTube. Maybe you've seen it, it's a Sears commercial? Of course there's the LL Bean commercial that could be a Christmas commercial, of course I couldn't find that one either. So this post is all sorts of fail! Kinda like the Cowboys lol sorry had to do it. So have you seen any Christmas commercials yet?
And by the way we now officially have 2 months before Christmas Day!!! Not time to panic just yet.

Days 79 - 68

Tuesday, October 19, 2010 3 comments

Seriously people if you can afford to (and if you go to Starbucks everday you can!) go get a flu shot! If your work place brings a nurse to the office to give shots, get in line and take it in the arm like a big girl/boy because this flu season doesn't look like it's messing around. I unfortunately wasn't covered by insurance yet so I had to go w/good ol' Nyquil which I almost didn't get because apparently there was a shortage although now I think i've built up an immunity to Nyquil's power because I need to take the full dose instead of my usual half in order for it to knock me out. Trust me people you don't want the flu this season. Go get your flu shot or you may get a gift for Christmas that's worse than a lump of coal in your stocking!

Look what I made for dinner!

Monday, October 18, 2010 2 comments

This was my first time cooking pasta and I was scared i'd turn it into one huge lump! But I didn't. I also had to figure out how many cups equals a quart and I also figured out that you don't have to follow the directions on the box! I also did some substitutions with the ingredients, but not too much. All in all I must say (and my hubby says so too) this was quite delish! And believe me I don't say it if it isn't true just ask my hubby about my Chicken Teriyaki and fried rice.
By the way it's great to be back!

Nearly a year ago today…ok 1 year and 1 day ago today, I decorated my camera bag like this because I knew my chances of receiving a new one for Christmas were slim no matter how many hints I dropped. Some of you will recognize the runes I stenciled Smile, but let me tell ya decorating my bag was not easy! I started out with some sort of fabric spray paint, but in Texas ,humidity is always a problem and the spray paint came out in globs! I was getting frustrated and then I saw the Sharpie commerical! Duh!! Why didn’t I think of that in the first place. And by the way if you decide to do something similar, Sharpie does not make a white pen; something about the ink pigment. So I went with silver and the Sharpie was much easier to use with the stencils I made. I’ve since graduated to a newer bag that holds more since I added a second lens (I already want another lens Winking smileI wonder if I’ll get that for Christmas) and is more girly-friendly, don’t get me wrong, I still love this bag and I don’t plan on giving it away or selling it, but it’s small and really only fits one lens and my camera so you can see why I needed the upgrade.

So now that we’re nearing the 2 months until Christmas point, how ready are you for the big day? Me? No where near ready!

Consider this my mulligan

One thing I dislike about the holidays, the clean-up, because inevitably I'm the one that gets to clean it up. Contrary to popular belief I do not enjoy washing dishes! I've even made that a stipulation when we either look for a new house or build a new one, there must be a dishwasher! That is one job I will gladly relinquish.

Another thing you can count on during the holidays? Catching a cold. So, if you can, get that flu shot! But if your like me and you're afraid of needles you suffer through it. (I know BTFF you're probably shaking your head at me) Luckily for me my parents live in the same city as we do and are a major help when I'm sick because the last thing I want to do is give what I have to Lil Seal. And for most people a batch of chicken soup is just what the doctor ordered, but for me it's my mom's potato soup and homemade tortillas. I don't know what it is about my mom's soup, but once that first spoonfull goes down my throat I feel 10 times better! Thanks mom! What about you dear readers, do you have a special food you enjoy eating when you're sick?

I know this is a countdown to Christmas Day, but there's other holidays that fall in between. Like Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving! The juicy turkey, yummy mashed potatoes and the pumpkin pie and of course the football! There's nothing like enjoying a great Thanksgiving lunch after going to church with Lil Seal's great-grandma and then watching the Cowboys loose. Oh yes and once again I'll be preparing some Oreo Balls and other assorted treats (for some reason everyone loves these treats and the pumpkin pie becomes all mine!) ;)

Remember that one night out of the year where you would stay up late preparing for Santa? Getting the plate of cookies ready setting the milk out, writing one last note. Well it's still the same only now you're up late putting together a bike, pulling out presents from their hiding spots and for some of us dressing up as Santa because as we all know Santa needs help too! ;)

And it's October 1st! Can we officially say it's the Holidays now? This time of year plenty of us, myself included, will be visiting this place...the post office! Whether it's sending care packages overseas, sending Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards, or trying to figure out when is the last possible day you can mail something so it reaches it's destination before Christmas day (this would be me - just ask my BTFF she'll tell you), we will all know the workers behind the counter and the person who delivers our mail. So be nice to them or Santa may leave you a lump of coal and the postman will leave you a lumpy box at your door!

And already hints are being dropped! Someone has drawn a picture of a Monster High laptop so they can video chat with their best friend. And took it one step further by telling me "mom don't worry if you hear me talking to myself because i'm not. I'm just video chatting on Monster High". As my aunt says all the time...have mercy!

87 Days!

Wednesday, September 29, 2010 1 comments

We've started decorating for Fall/Halloween around the office this week so I decided I would try and do a count down to Christmas post each day starting at 100 days. Well imagine my surprise when I realized we were nearly 2 weeks passed the 100 day mark! I felt like the ghost looks in the pic above! 
So I've decided I'm still going to attempt the countdown to Christmas and to add a photo to go with the post, so a way we go!
87 days until Christmas...

#Artoosday! The baking edition.

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 3 comments

I decided to make this recipe I saw on Hungry Girl called Yum Yum Chocolate Cake and Artoo helped with the ingredients. All two of them! Yep that's right the cake is made with only the two ingredients you see above. It's quite a workout for your arms let me tell ya! I haven't tasted it yet so we'll have to get back to you on that, but I can tell you it smells delish! It's suppose to make 12 slices and one slice has only 181 calories and if your on Weight Watchers it has a Points value of 4. So for Artoo and myself...enjoy the rest of your night, I know I will after the cake has cooled! :)

What Will She Wear Wednesday is Back!!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 2 comments

I’ve started a new job that is the polar opposite of where I worked before. No more jeans and boots here. So for my WWSWW return I give you a brand new outfit.

IMG_7060A IMG_7070A

My top and skirt I purchased at Kohl’s one of my favorite places to shop. I actually bought the outfit using my Kohl’s Cash and it was on sale as well! The skirt and top are by Heart Soul and my shoes are by Michael Kors and yes I did start with the shoes and found the outfit to go with them. Winking smileThe shoes are very comfortable they have a nice heel (I’ve worn higher) and needless to say they are my favorite pair! I am not parting with those suckers anytime soon. I love the color of my top, it’s a pretty turquoise color perfect for someone who is trying to incorporate a color other than pink into her wardrobe. The one thing I don’t like about the top is that it gives me a bit of cleavage, I’m not really a cleavage kind of girl so I may add a button to the front. I was just talking to my BTFF about how I really don’t wear dresses, skirts are as close as I’ll get to wearing a dress I think and it’s taken a while before I felt comfortable enough to wear a skirt, maybe it’s all that time I spent in jeans. I really like this skirt though, it’s cute, but not too girly. Perfect for an office setting.

Now to bring back WWSWW with a bang here is one more picture (this one is for you Suzi)

IMG_7062A

My Kathy Van Zeeland Croco Club cross-body bag! I love this bag! Oh who am I kidding I love KVZ!! This is a great color for summer and it will transition into the Fall season, unless of course I find another KVZ before Fall and I can sneak it past my hubby. I love the fact that I can carry this bag two different ways: on the shoulder or cross-body. It also has the zip pockets in the front that fit my phone perfectly and a hidden zip pocket in the back. The one thing I don’t like about this bag is that if I carry it on my shoulder it’s difficult to pull out anything from the inside, but if I carry it cross-body it’s easier to pull things out and put them back in the bag with ease.

So there you have it what I wore Wednesday plus the bag I’m carrying.

Happy 83rd Birthday Great Grandma

Sunday, August 8, 2010 0 comments

I couldn’t decide what to do for my 100th post, which is why it’s taken me so long to post something. Well here it is. My 7 year old’s great grandma celebrated her 83rd birthday on Sunday. We drove up to Frederick and went to church with her and after church we took her to Pizza Hut (options in Frederick are limited). I love listening to her stories and up until a year ago she was  still taking care of her great grandkids! And if any of her great grandkids get out of line while she is watching them she has a fly swatter at the ready!

Our 4th of July

Sunday, July 18, 2010 1 comments
This post isn’t going on my other blog since we didn’t/couldn’t have a proper 4th of July in Texas since our county has banned fireworks! So we actually had to cross state lines in order to have a great 4th. At first we were worried that the rain wouldn’t stop. What is it with it always raining on the 4th of July? We were invited by James & Melissa to go with their family to Lake Lawtonka in Oklahoma, when we arrived it was a bit misty but not really raining, but once we unloaded everything it really started to rain. I was not dressed for the occasion! Silly me, I wore my bathing suit and only brought shorts and a t-shirt to change into, well it turned out to be cold rain, but thanks to Melissa’s dad we had a tarp to put up to block some of the rain and then some other people had gone to the Dollar General and bought shower curtains (yes, shower curtains) for the guys to put up and voila! The rain was blocked. Luckily the rain did come to an end and we had a great time shooting of tons (and I’m not exaggerating lol) of fireworks. Here’s just a few:
This reminded me of La Push :)

I’ve been out of commission for a while (well my laptop anyway), but I finally bit the bullet and got it fixed. 1000 + pictures later I have everything downloaded and I’m ready to blog again! Here’s some photos from my Tia and Tio’s 52 wedding anniversary. Everyone had a great time and it was a family reunion of sorts with everyone coming together to help them celebrate such a special occasion.

What Will She Wear Wednesday

1 comments

It's Wednesday and I'm posting my WWSWW on Wednesday! Can you believe it?? Yeah me either.
Today was definitely one of those days so I wore my trusty Levi's, and a blouse from Walmart made by George, my shoes are by Villager a Liz Claiborne Company and I believe I bought them at the Shoe Carnival. My shoes are quite comfortable and I can wear them all day including at the courthouse. So there you have it...what I wore...TODAY! :)

What Will She Wear Wednesday

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 1 comments
Finally! Someone has made an app to edit pics on the Palm Pre! Thank you @rustyapps!!
So here you go what I wore the last Wednesday in April! My blouse is from Kohl's and was a great find at about $5 on clearance! And I love the purple! Trying to move away from pink and I think this is the direction I'm going in. My Levi's jeans of course and my black sandals I bought from the Shoe Carnival a while back. They're not the greatest if i'm going to the courthouse but they are quite cute. ;)
