Goodbye 2011

This past year was very laid back! Getting my life back in control and hopefully the New Year brings lots of adventures for myself and little miss to enjoy.

It's OK Thursday

This is the last Link up for 2011 next time we'll be in the NEW YEAR!!! WOOHOOOO =)

It's OK

to eat leftovers practically all week... hey we just ran out on Wednesday!!!

to wish it was snowing instead of raining!! Stupid east coast weather won't make up it's mind

to be thinking/planning little miss 4th birthday even though it's 2 months away. There's no such thing as being overly prepared.

to be excited for the NEW YEAR to ring in!!!

to be excited for celebrating  a friends birthday this weekend.

start planning a trip to NYC in January for a weekend!!! =) SCORE. If you guys know of any places to stay at LET ME KNOW!!! I've never been there before...

to go to sleep with 2 plus blankets because no matter what you do it feels like your house is below zero or maybe i just don't agree with the cold. it would be awesome if we can have winter without the cold and snow without the cold!!!!

Hope you all have an amazing New Year Eve plans!!!

Oh Charlie.

I've realized that I don't have a single post on our family dog. So, here's his story.
We adopted Charlie from my brothers childhood friend because his other dogs didn't accept him. Poor thing, Charlie stayed at a friends house until we my brother came home one day with him and noboday could say no after spending a few hour with him!!! He was a few weeks old when we took him in but I don't have any photos of him that young. He is 4 years old as of October.
FOr those wh omight ask he is an albino Doberman. We didn't cut his ears we like it just as it is!

Say Hi to Charlie!

Can you believe Christmas is on Sunday!! I feel like it's going by so fast.

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolate! I never had Eggnog.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?

That we got to open up the presents at midnight on the 24th

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?

Yes we did!!! Now we open them up on Christmas day because of the little one.

Growing up it has always been a star with colored lights then an angel and now it's a star again but no lights!

I love to give because i love to shop =) But I tend to get carried away with the gift giving.

19. Candy canes: yuck or yum?
YUCK!!!!! I use to love them but it's just so gross to me now!!!!

In Memory

Although I didn't get to grow up with you or have strong memories with you I'm glad I got at least the first 7 years of my life to know you and I have those memories to remember you by. I wish little miss got a chance to meet her great grandpa but I know your watching over us.  I pray that my family are coping and staying strong during moments like these. I love you very much Grandpa and I hope you rest in peace. I'm glad you had a wonderful 94 years of life to live.

To also be excited for some affordable Christmas DIY decorations that will be going up this weekend also thanks to pinterest. 

That I'm going somewhere totally different for Santa pictures because I don't like the way Santa looks at the place we usually go to.

To listen to Christmas music 24/7
