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

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!
