My husband called me at work today:

Me: Hello(I have caller id)

Husband: You are a stupidhead!!

Me: What? Why? I am at work, I couldn't have done anything to be called that.

My husband then explained to me what I did.

My husband for the past two years has gotten Old Spice Cologne from my grandmother. She never knows what to buy him, so she gets him the same cologne. every. year.

When I was throwing away boxes and trash from our Christmas presents. I just threw the whole box of Old spice in with the other boxes without opening it. Michael is never going to wear it, so why keep it?

Michael took all the boxes to our burn pile today, and guess what exploded when it got hot??


He was really mad and called me a stupid head. It got all over his clothes, and when I came home to give him a kiss. I still smelled it on him!! He is the youngest person to wear this cologne.


I silently giggled all day.

Blonde is better!!!

Michael and I have been thinking this over for a while, and we were just not happy with our hair. We wanted to go a little lighter.

They say that blondes have more fun!!

Don't worry!! It is not permanent!! We were only wild and crazy for a little while!!

Sick, Sick, Sick

I waited all year to have 4 days off. I had so many plans about what I was going to do this weekend.

None of that got accomplished!!!

I got sick, and have been drugged up with Nyquil, advil, old prescription medicine from the last time I had this stuff!!

Today I finally feel better!!!!

I finally got to play with my new photoshop elements that Michael got me. I was able to change my header!!!!

I worked a day and a half on this header. I love it!!! Well I love it until I learn something new!!!

I would love to take a class to find out more, but for now I have to self teach myself.

We are having a football party tonight!! Go Chargers!!

Christmas is over!

I finally have time to write in my blog!!! I have 3 more wonderful days off!!! It has been busy visiting family and being with our friends. Michael and I were very spoiled!!!

But the best present of all could not be wrapped up in any packages!!!!

(This may look like 1984 with that flannel shirt, but it is 2008.)

My niece is the most precious thing in the whole world. I am so happy she was able to celebrate it with us.

Michael and I are just hanging out this weekend, relaxing!! We have nothing on our schedule!!!

I am a busy Elf!

I have been so busy trying to get ready for my first Christmas with my husband!!!! I have not had time to think of witty blogs to write. I have been shopping, eating, christmas partying, and more shopping and eating!!!

On top of that I still have to work! Boo! I mean why can't everyone get two weeks off for Christmas!! Kids and teachers in school get to, oh and my husband does too!!

That Stinks! That means that he gets to lay in bed while I have to get up and go to work. I mean for the most part he leaves me in bed because he leaves at 5:30!!! Now I have to see him sleeping while I get ready!

Anyway I will try to be back after Christmas. I also still have to clean my house for company!!!! I hate cleaning!!!!

Merry Christmas to everyone!! May God bless you this season!!

This is Great!

I found this on Mrs. Incredible..or so they think I think it says a lot about how we act this season.

Twas the month before Christmas*

*When all through our land,*

*Not a Christian was praying*

*Nor taking a stand.*

*See the PC Police had taken away,*

*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*

*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*

*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*

*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*

* December 25th is just a 'Holiday'.*

*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*

*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*

*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*

*Something was changing, something quite odd! *

*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*

*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*

*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*

* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*

*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*

*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*

*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*

*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*

*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*

*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!*

*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*

*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*

*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*

* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*

*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*

*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*

*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*

*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*

*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*


not Happy Holiday!*

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet


Christ is "The Reason" for the Christ-mas Season!

Garland Show and Tell

I know I am late to the party, but since I have a garland, I decided to show it off. I did not actually make this garland. It was made custom for me though. I did twist the garland together, but my aunt put it together. I did put it on my mantle though. That was a big effort in itself. I had to hide the cords, and made sure it didn't fall down.

That mantle is not held up by anything. I hope The Nester likes it!

Christmas Traditions!!

This is our first Christmas as a married couple, and I wanted to go tell about the Christmas Traditions that I celebrated with my family.

The first one was going at Christmas Eve to look at Christmas lights. We would all pack in my grandparents cars to go see all the lights. Now that I think about it may have given my parents time to wrap the rest of the presents up.

My grandparents lived in West Virginia when I was little, and our grandparents usually drove all the way to NC to come get us for the holidays. Our parents could never come up until Christmas Eve usually because of work. I loved it up there because it was usually a white Christmas. My grandma would go all out for Christmas! She had every room decorated, and made the best food ever!!

Lights of Christmas Pictures, Images and Photos

When the whole family was together the presents under the tree took up their own room. I tried to find a picture for example, but nothing on photobucket even compared to what ours looked like. My cousins and I could hardly sleep Christmas Eve. We would wake up at 5:00 a.m. and sit on the couch until everyone else woke up!

The best part of West virginia is that we didn't have to go anywhere else for Christmas, because there was no other family members around. Now we go about 4 different places because of all the different family members.

To this day I have never been without most of my family being there for Christmas. My grandma has been there every Christmas morning since I was born. We never went over to my other grandparents till the afternoon.

I love remembering all those memories, and I am looking forward to making new memories with my husband.

I am an awful secret keeper!! Seriously if a want a secret to stay a secret, DON'T tell me. I can't keep a secret for nothing.

I have to at least tell one person. I tell my husband all my secrets that people tell me. I also tell my best friend Angela all my secrets that I can't tell my husband.

I am also a horrible liar!! My eyebrow twitches when I lie that gives me away every time!!! Its a curse! I really try hard not to lie but with all the secrets I keep, its hard to keep who is not supposed to know what!!

I also have drama happening around me, and I am the middle person. I don't like this. I can't keep up with it. I am Switzerland, because I know both sides. It is a nightmare!

I wish I could write freely about what is going on my life, but I can't! If you call me on the phone I might let you know!

Christmas time!

I am almost completely done shopping for Christmas!! Yay me! I have a couple more gifts to buy for the family, and then I have to get my husband some stuff! I would love to tell you what those were, but my husband reads this blog.

So Honey don't look here for Christmas presents!!

I wanted to do a tour of my house and all I have done, but the weekend got away from me. But I can preview. This is my tree! It is the best thing I have done for my house! I had a little help but for most part did it myself.

Martha Stewart could not do this better!! The next week I will be able to show the rest of my decorations. The Nester
is doing a Garland show and tell, so I am going to wait to show that!

Only 17 more days til Christmas!

Britney: For the Record

I just walked in to my house, and my husband was not home. So that means I can watch all the reality shows I can fit in. Britney: For the record is the first thing that I see to watch.

It was kind of sad, and I am not sure to feel her pain, or laugh at her. She was really, at least I think, crying because she is sad. She can't get away from her life with paparazzi. I am not sure what to think about it.

But in the middle of this is a Madonna concert. Madonna looks crazier than Britney. Madonna's eyebrows were about to attack her face!! She did not look like the young Madonna that I remember dancing and singing to. I was 8 singing "Like a Virgin" I didn't even know what that meant!!

But the "documentary" kind of showed that Britney is a real person. She has made mistakes, but who hasn't? Now my mistakes aren't posted on US Weekly for everyone to judge. I hope there is help out there for Britney.

I read the magazines, and I keep up with the pop culture. I know I shouldn't but I don't care to much for the politics, so I like to keep up with pop culture. So at least I will be up on my current events!

Yesterday was wild!!!! I had 50 comments on my blog by joining The Secret is in the Sauce! It was truly amazing, and even though I did it so I could win cool stuff. I saw lots of different blogs, but I did not win a darn thing!

Oh Well! Back to the regularly scheduled programming of mediocre posts and few commenters.

Today I was going to show my whole house decorated for Christmas, but my sweet sweet hubby is not finished putting the wreaths on the windows. He also has to put the spotlights out, so people can actually see the wreaths. This would also mean that I have to clean the house, so it will definitely have to wait until this weekend.

I have been busy shopping, watching all the Christmas movies on Lifetime, and working! I can not believe that it is only three weeks until Christmas!! I still have a few more presents to buy and I have no idea what to get. Why is it so hard to buy presents!! I hang out with my family 365 days a year, and I still do not know what to get them!!

I have my mother in law, grandmother in law(is that even a word), mema, aunt, other mema, dad, husband to buy presents for this year.

My mother in law told us we could get her a heated towel rack, that she already bought and put up in her bathroom. So does that mean we just give her the money? Merry Christmas I bought my own present!

Our family just picks stuff out, and hope they like it.

SITS Merry Christmas Card

Here is my SITS christmas card, because they are doing an all day giveaway!!

Our 2008 Christmas Letter!

This will be Michael and I's very first Christmas together as a married couple. We wanted to let everyone know what has been going on in our lives.

We got married in January!! It was the absolute best day! The only time it snowed all season was on our wedding day! But we quickly got the heck out of dodge to a sunny climate!! The Bahamas, Key West and Atlantic Ocean were calling our names! We lost some money gambling, had lots of whoopie, and ate food til we threw up!

I have been using this year to get adjusted to Annabell sleeping with us. Michael and her are against me and work together to steal the covers from me! She has been really the best dog, and I wouldn't know what to do, if she was not around!

I've spent all year trying to decorate our house, just the way we both like it. We both have different styles! My style is traditional with pictures on the wall, knick-knacks on furniture, and lamps on tables. Michael has more of a style of recliner, TV, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. memorabilia.

We are learning to adjust to each other!

This year we have been blessed in all aspects of our life, and could not be happier!

We are looking forward to the New Year!

Thank you for being a part of our life this past year!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

May God bless you this season!
