Headed the Chick-Fil-A Bowl

Well, I’m not, but Rob and Drew are. Drew had been begging to go to the bowl game and after Rob and I discussed it we decided to let that be one of his gifts. It’s in Atlanta, so they can just go up for the day and come back. It’s a quality bowl game …

Christmas Day {2011}

Christmas Day was quite enjoyable. Rob and I woke around 9 am and couldn’t believe the kids had let us sleep so long. We jumped out of bed and got breakfast in the oven and unloaded our stockings. We enjoyed our breakfast of sausage balls and apple fritters. Daisy was very excited about what Santa …

Christmas Eve {2011}

Christmas Eve day was fairly busy. Not as busy at the 2 days before, but still a little busier than I would have preferred. But like this entire Christmas season, for some reason, for us everything has been so different. I won’t go into all the reasons why, but it’s just been bizarr-o. Oh I …

Handmade Gifts

I made these handmade gifts for my coworkers. They are super easy and super inexpensive. I think for a set of 4, it cost about $1.40. I had lots of fun choosing the paper for each person that reflected their personalities. They were quite a hit. *Remember to allow 30 days before using the coasters …

Cherry Cordial M&M’s

Cherry Cordial M&M’s are so amazing! I couldn’t believe how much they taste like a chocolate covered cherry without the juice of the cherry. If you like Chocolate covered cherries, you should try them and see what you think. Peanut Butter M&M’s are pretty much what you would expect. Chocolate M&M’s with a peanut butter …

Why????

I usually don’t write about politics. I’m not really one to publicly voice my opinions about stuff like this, but I’m really the need to vent right now. I’m on facebook as is most of the world, and have “friends” of all sorts. Anyway, I won’t go into specifics about that as I shouldn’t go …

Today started out like any other day. Kids up, back to bed, sleep, up for lunch, then off to work… As I was walking into work, a colleague of mine, John*, (who is also a good friend of the family) was leaving a bit earlier than usual. He informed me that he had to go …

Christmas Survey 2011

I did this survey back in 2005, but decided to do it again when I saw someone else post it. Click here to see how my answers have changed over the years. 1. Eggnog or hot chocolate? I’ve never tried eggnog. Maybe I’ll do that this year. There’s just something about it that sounds and/or …

Tran-Siberian Orchestra Concert

Last night Rob, Drew, and I had a date night in Atlanta to see Tran-Siberian Orchestra. If you’ve never heard of them, you actually probably have heard a song or two of theirs, but don’t let the name fool you. They are not an orchestra, but an amazingly talented rock band that utilizes strings, polished …

Fill in the Blank Friday 12.2.11

The holiday season is my favorite time of year. I love soaking up all that the Christmas season has to offer, from the smells, the decorations, the food, Christmas movies, cooking for the occasion. There’s not much that I don’t like about the Christmas season. Snow makes me excited. Living in the South, we don’t …

30 days of Thankfulness – Day 25

Today I’m thankful for the little things in life. The laughter of my children, the beautiful fall colors, the butterflies in the spring, the smell of homemade spaghetti sauce cooking, the silliness of Daisy, the comfort of my bed. All these are little pretty “insignificant” things, but they make me smile and happy even when …

30 days of Thankfulness – Day 24

I am thankful for the invention of the camera. I just think about all the things that my photographs help me remember. All the memories that I have stored up, that I can look back through thanks to a camera. Whether it be a Kodak 110 or a Canon Rebel, they all serve a purpose …
