Where in the US is it hot 1 week before Christmas?
Valdosta, GA would be the answer to that question.

When I got back from lunch I had to turn my fan on in my office because it is HOT outside. CRAZY!!!! It's almost hitting 80 degrees out.

I think Santa is going to come dressed like this to my house this year.

I won the candles! WOOOHOOOO!!!!! Merry Christmas to me.

Also, my hubby has been working on something for me too.

He has installed my new sink and faucet.

We've had both for a while but didn't want to install them til we finished the cabinets which we finished in Feb. but life got in the way and now 10 months later it's getting done. Well worth the wait though.

The before.....

The during.....

The after......
I might be crazy but I just can't help myself.
While browsing around a shop in Jacksonville, FL a while back I had the pleasure of smelling one of these and it smelled so GOOD. I didn't buy one b/c they are $25...Yikes--I don't even like saying that. And, you just never know if they'll actually smell that good while burning.
After looking around on-line to try to find one cheaper and not being successful I gave up. WELL, today a mom on one of message boards posted on just how wonderful these candles really are and just went on and on. So, what did I do.....started on my search again. This time Ebay came thru for me. I have placed a bid for 5 of them at just over $40. Can't beat that. So, I'm hoping I'm the big fat winner. Please hope with me....I REALLLLLY want these candles.

What a busy day! I was the first one up and ate a Marshmallow Crescent Puff and had a great cup of coffee.

Then, I cooked a good lunch of ham, mashed potatos, corn and rolls.

After lunch we headed to the mall so Macie could have her picture made with Santa. We waited for about an hour to see him ...luckily she was pretty good the entire time and wasn't scared of Santa either.

At about 6 o'clock Amy came over to take our Christmas picture for our cards. It took 2 hours to get these was not fun but we got some good ones and made some memories in the process.

I'm exhausted after 2 hours of trying to get a good picture and then getting aggravated at trying to pick out the perfect card so I'm going to bed NOW!

Seems just yesterday we were all waiting anxiously at the nursery window to see his little face. I can't wait to celebrate with him next Friday.
Check out my handsome fella here.

I have been all smiles lately. For the first time in a long time I'm HAPPY beyond belief and it feels good. I'm falling more and more in love with Nick every day when I didn't know it was even possible. He seems to always amaze me at how wonderful he is and how he is such a good dad and husband. Macie is the sweetest kid I know.....she makes me act like a kid more and more which I love. Her smile is amazing and her laugh is the best sound in the world.
This feels good and I hope that it will only continue to get better. I'm truly BLESSED beyond belief and I thank GOD for this wonderful, crazy, amazing life.

I had a wonderful weekend!!
I was a bridesmaid in a friend from high schools wedding. Cortney was the beautiful bride and two of the other bridesmaids were good friends as well...Amy and Laura. It was so much fun catching up with them since it has been way too long since we have done so. Just like all lasting friendships it was like we never had been apart. It was great! I also got to see several other people I grew up with and hadn't seen in FOREVER! What a great way to spend my Friday and Saturday.

This is Amy, Cortney, me and Laura
Me and my handsome husband.
My hair....LOL. I loved it so I had to take a picture. Jill asked if I wanted to go with the crowd and do curls or go "funky" As you can see I went funky

Here's a picture of Amy's new puppy. She hasn't decided on a name yet but she's thinking either Cooper or Oliver. In my opinion she can't go wrong with either one.

He's a bassett hound and is around 8 weeks old.

I do believe I'm already in love!
