I looked on weather.com and saw that there is a chance of snow showers in NYC on New Year's Eve. Should be very interesting!! I would LOVE for it to give us a little snow while we're there! That would be like the vanilla icing on our wintery cake. Next time you hear from me, I'll be vacationing in the New England states. Hope everyone has a safe & Happy New Year!
We will party like it's 2-0-0...9! :)

We all went to see 4 Christmases tonight at the theatre. It was really cute & fun to go with the fam.
I still, even though I'm 24 and know that Christmas isn't all about Santa & presents, I will still admit that I get excited about the next morning of surprises & family time. I gotta go to sleep now so it'll come faster! :)
Merry Christmas to all & to all a good night!

We went to eat Brick Oven pizza for lunch today. It was mmm, mmm, good. I had a Coke with mine, which always makes pizza even yummier. That delicious Pepperoni & Jalapeno pizza. It's our Friday family specialty. We LOOOOVE Fridays.
I am a doggy-lover and there were some puppies for free in the Wal-Mart parking lot this afternoon. We almost stopped, but decided it's like torture playing with puppies you can't have. They were really cute though. Chad & I would love to get a dog, but our place just isn't fitting for a German Shepherd. So, looks like we'll have to wait. Anyways, the point of telling you that I'm a doggy-lover was to share with you how much Shannon's cat likes me. This is unusual. For one, I'm allergic to cats and have never really liked them. I can take or leave petting one. I will agree that they are cute as kittens, but once they grow up and get their own cat-like personality, I don't really appreciate them as much. Bebe, Shannon's kitty, is LOVING me. I have been scratching her, petting her, and letting her sleep on my lap, which is soooo out of character for me. I guess I just figured that while I'm here alone in the house all day, I might as well befriend someone. And Bebe is now my someone. Haha. She's a sweet cat though. And she loooooves string. It's hilarious. Anyways, for those who know me really well, I figured you would be shocked by my behavior. And there you go...

Does anyone else find it sad that this is all that I have to blog about? I guess that if this is my life's worst hurdle right now, then we're doing okay. I'm so worthless. haha.

Cassandra's graduation dinner at Capeo is tonight and we're really hoping it works out! I got to spend the day with her yesterday and it was a lot of fun. We went to eat lunch at a Japanese Hibachi/Sushi grill called Sakura. It was yummy. Then we went to Wal-mart to grab some special ingredients to make Christmas goodies. We spent the rest of the afternoon making Puppy Chow (it's soooo sinful & addicting) and also some white & milk chocolate pretzels. Delicioso! It was fun stuff & we got lots of loving from our hubbies who love baked goods. :)
That's pretty much all that's going on with me right now. Hope everyone is surviving the cold, wherever you are!

*The board game Cranium Wow, cuz it's fun and we love games! :)
*A nice, dressy watch. I haven't had a watch in several years and think it's time to dress up the arm a little, once again.
*A gift certificate to Starbucks always makes me happy. I usually only go there in the winter for a good Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Caramel Apple Cider, or a French-Vanilla Cappuccino. I love walking in there...mmm, mmm, mmm, for the smell of it. Warm, yummy drinks sound good right now!
*Some of the coolest, prettiest, funnest eye shadows out there. It's called Hot Pants. They're expensive, but they last a year each. Seriously, I love them. You can find them too at www.hotpantscosmetics.com. Thanks sissy KK for getting me hooked!!
*Some kind of cute, funny warm-wear like this hat:
*An iPod dock for my iPod (duh). I don't care if its fancy-schmancy or anything. I just want something to hook up in my bathroom so I can jam out while I'm in the shower and getting ready. It's just not the same when I'm not dancing or singing along. haha.
*And I also asked for cute scarves/gloves for our NY trip. Hopefully I get SOMETHING warm or I may just freeze my lil tooshie off!
*I asked my mommy for my favorite perfume of all time. It's Beautiful Sheer by Estee Lauder. She has gotten it for me since I fell in love with it, which was when I was in high school. It's so great, it's one of those smells where everyone always asks what you're wearing. I like it when I smell that good. :)
I'll stop there cuz I think that list makes me enough of a brat. I don't have to get it all, remember. Those are just the things I threw out there as ideas. I'll let you know how it goes in just 2 short weeks from today! :) Yay for Christmas!

A hidden happy thing about this is that the 'schoolhouse' is closed for two weeks for a Christmas/New Years break, so we don't have to take 'leave' for it, saving us like 12 days of precious vacation days. That's awesome.
I am still trying to figure out what I can be doing with myself for that whole time! I'm going to be carless because Chad has to have a way to get to work everyday, so that makes things kinda difficult. Luckily, Cassandra & Aaron are going to be there & I plan on intruding on Cass quite often, haha. I have a hair appointment made for the 17th (yay!), Cass is graduating with her Masters in Journalism on the 18th, and she's having a dinner party on the 16th! So, we at least have a couple of things to do while we are there this coming week.
Any ideas of what a girl can do while she is home with herself and a laptop? Preferably something that makes money. haha. I know, sounds pretty dreamy. But, I'm open to any ideas my friends.
Today & tomorrow, I will be busy packing us up for a 2 1/2 month vacation from home that has to include the appropriate clothing for our Christmas trip to Myrtle Beach and warm-wear for our New Years trip to NYC. Lots & lots of clothes to pack! I guess I better get to work!
We hit the road towards Arkansas on Wednesday, but plan on stopping in Asheville, NC for two nights so we can experience the famous Biltmore mansion's Christmas events. We are excited to see the amazing decorations. Here is a link to a small video of what we expect to see:
We've been looking forward to it since last Christmas when Chad wasn't here for us to go, so it should be fun! Gotta go get busy! :)

Because it's Friday & we often use Friday for 'date night', I was looking into what movies are waiting for us at the theaters this weekend. Chad is a crazed 007 fan, so the Quantum of Solace has been waiting for him since he returned from overseas. I'm surprised it's taken this long for him to try and drag me to see that one. Also, Four Christmases looks like a super-cute movie! I love Vince Vaughn & Reese Witherspoon, so it's definitely gonna be a good one. Marley & Me looks like it's going to be a hoot with that silly puppy dog! Again, Jennifer Aniston & Owen Wilson are a great pair. And the previews are hilarious. And for another 'stupid' movie (I love those for some reason), we have Role Models. We are also excited about Will Smith's new movie, 7 Pounds. It looks captivating, but it hasn't been released just yet.
Anyways, I'll stop there. I'm sure there are more, but we have to choose ONE for tonight to start. Then we can think about the others. I'll let you know how it goes.
