Christmas House!

This little tree is very special to us. I bought it for Brandon when we were dating, so his "bachelor pad" could have some Christmas cheer. And on my graduation day in 2010, he proposed to me, hiding my ring in that little brown box. Now, our little tree is home to our special ornaments and of course that little brown box!



Salvation through Christ. puppies. family. laughter. boots. scarfs. teaching. marriage.
snuggling. scary movies. food. musicals. christmas. pennants. glass bottles.
makeup. haircuts. baggy clothes. dr. pepper. mexican food. leggings. swimming pools.
shopping. presents. pictures. coloring. phones. blogging. festivals. lights. our little house.
babies. Husband. in-loves. cards. road trips. board games. parades. pizza. candles.
text messages. memories. home videos. future.

What are you thankful for?

Happy (early) Thanksgiving, guys!


We went to Texas!

The Crews' family packed up and headed to Texas!
It was definitely a "yee haw" time!

The hotels were booked, so they had to put us up in a bed in breakfast. 
It truly was a sacrifice, but I somehow survived. 
Maybe it was my sweet husband serving me breakfast in bed at a bed and breakfast.

We got to see the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon. 
Such an unexpected sight to see in the middle of flat lands!

 Of course, no trip to Amarillo is complete without seeing the "Cadillac Ranch!"
We even found some paint cans and got to tag a few.

To say that it was slightly windy would be an understatement!

I have to say, the best part of coming home is having our little family together under one roof.

Happy Thanksgiving week, from us to you!



Oh, man. I'm so sorry to the 3 readers of this little blog. It's been way too long. I don't think I can say life has been exceptionally busier than normal...so I guess I'm just slacking. But, I'm back from my hiatus, totally missing you guys, and ready to get back into the routine! These are the random ramblings in my head as of late...

Sunday, November 11, 2012, I cracked. One look from my furbabies and all the Chrimma decorations appeared in my living room, waiting to be unpacked. It's uncanny how that happens. Okay fine, it's totally lame to blame this on my girls, but it sure does sound better than the truth: I'm a weak Christmas fanatic. There, I said it. But, as I type this, I am sitting next to the prettiest tree and listening to Pentatonix's Christmas Album (Go to iTunes and buy this album, now!) AKA, I'm okay with the fact that it's before Thanksgiving. No guilt here. Last year I had the decor up before Halloween, so I'd say this is progress.

Speaking of Thanksgiving (kind of) I am so very ready for a week of no Kindergarteners! Woo Hoo! A week without constantly telling them to blow their noses (I mean, can they not feel the snot running down their face?) A week without bending down 500 times a day to tie their never-staying-put shoe strings, without markers/chalk/glue/glitter on my pants, and a week without sing the "Days of the Week" and "Months of the Year" songs! Sounds great to me! And Husband, this goes for you too. I will not tie your shoes and you better learn to blow your own nose.

Can we just agree that puppy hiccups are the cutest?

I have super exciting news to share with you! I mean, it's life changing. Not just news about me, but about some other people. Oh man, it's big. To bad I can't say a word, yet. (And no, I am not pregnant. Please don't get that rumor started!)

I finally got some new specs. They make me feel very nerdy-chic. Plus, they are actually prescription, not some fake plastic posers from Claire's, so I'm totally legit.

I hate hospitals. I hate needles. I hate blood. I hate blood work. Basically, I hate today.

My Husband hates Egg-Nog and I don't know how I feel about that.

While you are visiting the iTunes Store, go ahead and purchase Zooey Deschanel's Christmas album. I promise, you will not be disappointed. Unless, you are one of those people who hate rainbows and flowers and all things awesome. Then, nevermind.

Did you know that "nevermind" isn't a real word? I always have to add it to the list of words on my phone, and my computer puts the red line of death under it every time I try to write it. Nevermind. Never mind.

Happy Tuesday, all!
