New traditions

I've had the same stocking since my first Christmas but not this year because mom can't find it.
I always have new pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve but not this year because Santa apparently underestimated the size of my thighs.
I'm not a fan of these new traditions... Merry Christmas. I truly hope yours is better than mine.

Almost there...

2 and a half more hours... 2 and a half more hours... 2 and a half more hours... 2 and a half more hours...2 and a half more hours... 2 and a half more hours...

Bookends

Year 30: Day 1-Stomach bug. Birthday celebration cancelled. Spent all night throwing up. Not fun.

Year 30: Day 365-Power goes out 10 minutes before I need to get ready. House starts to get really cold really quickly. Take a quick shower in the dark, and wait for the sun to come up to put my makeup on. Not fun.

I think I'm ready for 31 now.

How Do I Love D? Let me count the ways...

My Dad-If you know him, you understand. If you don't, allow me to introduce you him: God fearing, believer in the power of prayer, generous, helpful, selfless, ridiculously Head Over Heels in love with my Mom, protector, funny, loves life, loves his kids, Mr. Fix It, secret cash giver, sports fan, former UK Basketball player. Best. Dad. Ever. Every year when I am shopping for his birthday or Father's Day card, I stand in Hallmark and read all of the sappy ones and cry. I'm so lucky to have him in my life. Disney Movies--It may be childish, it may be girly, but I. Love. Disney. Movies. More the classics than the new ones... There is something about knowing that someone actually sat and drew each minute change of each scene. (Those of you who went to see a Disney movie with me circa the Aladdin/Beauty and the Beast time frame know that my sister was friends with an animator, and we always had to stay after and find his name in the credits.)Dukes of Hazzard--Man I LOVE…

It's beginning to feel alot like Christmas...

Maybe it's because I put my tree up...
...maybe it's the Pine candle my mom bought me to make up for the fact that I couldn't find a real tree that I loved this year, maybe it's because I actually ordered Christmas cards for the first time ever...


maybe it's the Christmas music I am listening to on iTunes...












maybe it's because this is the wallpaper on my computer right now (one of my favorite pictures EVER) or maybe it's that it's finally cold outside, but I am really feeling Christmas-sy! And I love it!
