Check That Number Out

After 2 months
Oh ya baby!!! I like that number. The real question remains...is my scale joking or am I really that weight??? I have lost about 13 lbs in the last 2 months. Dont ask how I am doing it because in reality, it is NOT the healthy way.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

How you make me itch so!!!!
I love the smell of a live Christmas tree but hate the fact that now I have the start of hives and the itchy-ness that goes along with it.
Here is a photo of my (sick) lil man with my dear hubby at Lowe's after we picked out our Christmas tree.

Meet Me On Monday


1.  What is your favorite way to eat chicken?
2.  Have you decorated for Christmas yet?
3.  What is your favorite article of clothing?
4.  Do you pay your bills online or write checks the old way?
5.  Do you make Christmas cookies?

My Answers!

1.  What is your favorite way to eat chicken?
Well I have to say anyway I cook it but if I go out to eat at a restaurant, I go Chick-Fil-A style.

2. Have you decorated for Christmas yet?
No, I still have all my Fall decor up but I am starting to gather all my Christmas decor in one spot so when we DO start to decorate (sometime this week) it should be easy peasy.

3. What is your favorite article of clothing?
I have many favorite articles of clothing but of all I would have to say my cheap Wet Seal fake Ugg boots. I wear them EVERYWHERE with EVERYTHING!

4. Do you pay your bills online or write checks the old way?
I dont pay any bills. My dear hubby does all that and he does it all online except the water bill which we pay with checks at the city building.

5. Do you make Christmas cookies?
I typically do but I have started to make a habit of it with my lil man so he can help decorate as well as "stamp" the dough with the cookie cutters.

Picture Time.

So I love photography and at one point had my own business. (I still do, sorta).
Well, yesterday I was able to snap a few photos here and there of family.

My mom and step dad: My grandmother keeps telling me over and over again that her Christmas wish is to have a photo of my mom and dad together as her gift so I finally got them together and got some decent photos of the 2 of them.

Now here are some of my lil monkey (14 month old nephew) and his mom (my younger sister) and dad:

Flashback Friday

Hope everyone had a wonderful and thankful Thanksgiving!

Our fried 17 pound turkey last year in 2009.

In Laws In Town

My in laws arrived Saturday afternoon around 3pm and I have been hanging out with them and my "adopted" girlfriend for the past 3 days. I say "adopted" because she has been over every single day as well as staying the night. She is awesome and I love her like crazy! We even "bonded" by crying on the couch together (like the scene in Friends where Rachel and Monica were crying on the couch together!
Last night we all played Wii including my mother in law! She whooped all our butts!
I am having a blast so this is why I am MIA for a bit

Friday Flashback

This Friday Flashback is only from last year.
This is "Lizzie". She was my Grammy's car. I "inherited" the car back in November 2009 when my brother and I made the 2 day trip to Ohio and back to pick her up. Oh the memories of that car even though I didnt have her long. I miss that car!

Firewood is a funny thing

I say that because now that we finally have more firewood, the weather is supposed to be in the mid 70's by this weekend.
And now for a few photos of the boys unloading the firewood. 

Follow The Leader

Just a little note: if you are following me, please comment somewhere you are following me as I am not sure who my new and old followers are. It is getting to be so many I can't keep track of. So please, if I have not followed you back yet, let me know and you are probably one I do not know is following me.

Yet another change

It's that time of the year where everyone goes darker.....hair that is. Tanning is so yesterday! *chuckles*

Here is the old look (last month)

Here is the new look

As you can see the highlights are still there but it is a lot darker. This pretty close to my natural hair color....close not exact!

Post it note Tuesday
