I may have just exclaimed "Christmas is ruined!!"
The top half of our pre-lit tree did not light. I overreacted…a tad. Currently unstringing the top half of the tree. Hrrumph.
I'll tell you a secret
I was born in Texas. It’s true I’ve lived in the midwest the majority of my life but I spent my first impressionable years in the dry dusty heat of Texas and then a couple years in the tropical temps of Okinawa, Japan (we were an airforce family). Thus, when the temps start dipping below 50 degrees I start pulling out the wool coats and parkas. I hate being cold, hate it. My husband...
Goal for tomorrow - do not eat 3 cupcakes again
It’s a perfect goal because there is only one left.
Spending my day
Dream online shoe shopping and baking dark chocolate cupcakes. Color me happy.
What to get a college student?
Any ideas what I should get my college freshmen sister for Christmas? She’s got more clothes/shoes than my other sister and I combined, she loves scary movies, and she’s kind of a hipster. She’s the only person on my gift list that I have absolutely no idea what to give her - because of our age difference we’ve never been too close but I’ve been told she’s...
I learned a lesson today and that lesson is to never order drive through when you’re super congested. The husband and I were on our way back from Thanksgiving in Iowa and it was lunch time, something needed to be done, I get incredibly cranky when hungry. We stopped at a Taco Bell/KFC drive-thru and ordered a STEAK soft taco and a #3 KFC (chicken sandwich). What we got was SIX soft tacos...
Can I get a show of hands...
Of people who do the tissue-nose trick where you roll up a tissue and use it to plug up the Niagara falls-like flow of snot coming out your nose?
On my death bed
I have a tendency to be a little melodramatic when I’m sick but I am fairly certain I’m going to die from this cold.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
The current average answer to my question about how many pairs of shoes do you own is at 38. Just thought I would let you know. I own a paltry 21, way below the average so far.
This week I'm thankful for....
Harry Potter and believing in magic if only for 2.5 hrs Glorious weather in November Wearing fun patterned socks with tall boots Green tea Poached eggs and my new found skill in making them New projects at work A husband that is still sweet even though he’s sick as a dog What are you thankful for?
Today I'm thankful for....my dad
Today was unseasonably warm, 70s in November does not happed very often. I recall several years ago in Iowa there was a blizzard that was so bad in late November I had to postpone my daddy date on my birthday. My family had a tradition that on our birthday we went out to a special dinner with our dad. Just me and my dad and there were no rules, I could order whatever I wanted, dessert as a meal...
At the club
I am at a club for the first time in YEARS and I swear to God every girl in this place looks like Ke$ha.
Apparantly we are going to a potluck tonight
Husband: "Oh, we have a potluck to go to tonight."
Me: "Oh, sure, um, what should I make for it?"
Husband: "Oh, you want to cook something? I was just going to bring a case of beer."
Me: "I don't want to be THAT couple, besides I love to cook, if we bring beer everyone will think I can't cook or something."
Me: "So, what should I make?"
Husband: "I dunno."
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I need to settle a dispute with my husband that I own a normal to below average amount of shoes - (reference) Estimations are perfectly acceptable.
Disturbing thing of the day
A coworker and I have had a growing affinity for the phrase “I’m so angry I could punch a baby in the face” to describe blinding anger and/or frustration.
Guess who’s car alarm went off when it was time to join the shoot? This girl’s. Way to make an appearance.
I have caught the death
I have a serious case of the death and I’m supposed to be at video shoot for work tomorrow - must get healthy.
