It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Not until this week did it start to feel like Christmas to me. Maybe it was the 2 day snow storm or it could have been the fact I've finally started to make a dent in my Christmas shopping or maybe it's because there are only 4 days until the BIG day? Who knows. What I do know is that I love, love, love Christmas! It's by far my favorite holiday! I decorated my house and I just love it. I'm always sad when it's time for it all to come down. Cardy and I bought a real tree and he's super cute (my tree's a he)! I love the look of Christmas lights, they're so romantic.

I feel like we have been so busy this month. Fortunately our December has been filled with lots of fun and hysterical events. A couple of our friends had what I now consider my favorite themed party: Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. Don't get offended...lots of women still wear these infamous sweaters (and apparently some men do too, who knew?) but to be quite honest...they're terrible. I had some good laughs in Thrift town while scouring the Christmas clothing racks. It was a riot to show up at these parties just to see what everyone else was wearing. There are some truly ugly Christmas sweaters out there.

Last week I hosted Bunco. I was excited when I was given December as my month to host. What better time to have a party than when your house is all decorated and party ready? Typically on Bunco nights the 12 of us have dinner and play Bunco but I thought for the holidays we would have a holiday party and ornament exchange instead. I made a really nice dinner and the most adorable cupcakes for the group. After dinner we exchanged ornaments using "white elephant rules." It was a lot of fun and there were so many cute ornaments for each person to take home.

We missed: Heather, Caprice, Jenny & Megan

To All My Friends: Merry Christmas!


Do you ever feel like this???

Dying to blog

I am dying to blog. I seriously have not had one stinkin' chance to sit down and post anything . I just barely uploaded new pictures to our computer the other night but alas, it was way past my bedtime and I didn't have the energy to post anything...but I'm dying to!
I'm hoping in the next day or two I will have some time to sit and blog about all of fun December activities.



There is so much I love about Thanksgiving: time spent with my family, turkey, mashed potatoes and all the fixins, pumpkin pie, the long weekend, football...It's all of my favorite things wrapped into one amazing day that I sometimes forget it's a holiday.

I love all of the personal reflection that happens on Thanksgiving, we all can't wait to list our "thankful fors."

Here are a few of mine:
-my family. I have the best mom & dad in the world! They truly are amazing people. (Dustin- holla atcha boy! You're amazing too.)

-my husband. He is cutest, goofiest, funniest, wise crackinist, smartest person I know. Love ya baby!

-my in-laws. Who could have better in-laws? I am the luckiest wife to have married into such a wonderful family.

-my nieces & nephews. You all keep me laughing non stop. I miss my little Reno buddies.

-my friends. Don't know what I'd do without ya.

-my health. Enough said.

-my job. I'm grateful to be in a field that continues to thrive even in this bad economy.

Just a little side note...the turkey in the picture is the very first turkey I have ever cooked! His name is Tom (or should I say was???)
