*Love* vol 3

Today is another installment of things that I Love.  Because I love a lot and I want YOU to know it.  So, here goes.

I *LOVE* that Monkey is finally sleeping in his bed again.  I just didn’t want to see him sleeping like this anymore…

That can’t be comfortable

I am soooooo glad that phase seems to be over!

I *LOVE* when he is actually sleeping and not climbing the walls and trying to give me a heart attack out of fear of him falling. Which lemme tell you is his new favorite past time.  Anything within reach will be climbed.  ANYTHING.

I *LOVE* having a video baby monitor too.  Because it is a requirement for having children if you ask me.  Right up there with diapers and child safety locks.

I *LOVE* that Christmas is a few days away and everything is wrapped and under the tree.  And the Ham is in the fridge ready to be cooked.

I *LOVE* that I don’t have to go out again until AFTER Christmas.  I could stay in my pajamas for the next 5 days if I choose.  I am going to have to ponder that.

I *LOVE* web cams.  This makes it possible for us to share our Christmas with our families in not one, not two, not three, but in FOUR other houses this year.  It makes it a ton of fun and it’s the cheapest airfare! 🙂

I *LOVE* whip cream.  It seems to be my new “must have” on my grocery list each week alongside bread and milk.  I put it on hot tea, hot coffee and hot cocoa.

I *LOVE* my awesome Christmas mug that I found a Target this year and will surely be using it year round.  Even though, no matter how hard I try, I cannot make out what that swirly text at the top is supposed to say.  It looks to me like it says… Money Chicloode???  *shrug*

I *LOVE* my Christmas Decos this year.  This, by far, has been my most proud year.  Everything is just perfect.  IMO.

Even Monkey got his own tree this year!

I *LOVE* that we are finally getting over our colds.  Thanks to a couple humidifiers and some liquid Vicks.  I didn’t even know they had that. Did you?  Cool stuff 🙂

I *LOVE* when Monkey’s playroom is actually CLEAN…

*Gasp*

I *LOVE* that hubby is going to have an extended weekend this weekend.  Yay!!!

.

This last one is a repeat from my very first *LOVE* blog.

I *LOVE* my wedding rings.  And I especially love when someone comments about them.  They are so sparkly and still make me grin from ear to ear.  And even though I say “aww, shucks, thanks” and pretend to brush off the compliment, I am really thinking “oh yeah, you wish you were me right now, don’t you, booya!” *blink*

So in addition… I *LOVE* that everyone requested pictures. Yay!

Please keep in mind that I am NO Molly Yarchin or anything.  She could make these rings look fantastic.  But I, on the other hand, have never photographed a sparkly diamond ring.  More importantly I learned that I SUCK at it.

Ok (she says through gritted teeth) here you go…

God, are my hands REALLY that hairy? I look like a gorilla.  HELLO MAN HANDS! *gag*

Here is a little better angle.

Hope that was all you hoped for. *grin*

I will most likely be MIA until next week.  Hubby is supposed to have some time off and I am going to SOAK it up baby!!  WoooHooo!

What do you love?

Merry Christmas!!!

(or whatever your holiday celebrations may be)

I’m Late Random Thoughts

~~~~~

So I’m LATE!  Not like that, although I soooo wish.  I am late with Random Thoughts Tuesday!  I just was too lazy busy to get to it yesterday.  Actually, I had a blog half started but never completed it.  Procrastinate much?

Are you TOTALLY stoked for the holidays?!?! I am! I love this time of year!  The Thanksgiving, The Christmas, The New Years.  YAY!!!

Thanksgiving was GRUB, and of course it helps that I am a FAB cook.  The meal came out beautifully and I am still amazed at myself for being able to do it all without feeling even a tiny bit stressed about it.

We got all of the inside decorations done.  The tree and all the pretty shiny lights and stuff everywhere.  I will take pictures this week and show you, since I KNOW you all have nothing better to do than look at pictures of my house all done up in it’s Sunday Christmas Best!  *snicker*

As you can tell, I am sort of in bitch mode right now.  Not sure why, it just happened.

As far as the outside lights, we haven’t put them up yet.  And by “we” I of course mean Hubby.  Cause of several reasons.

One… It’s outside of the house.  And this means, the possibility of creepy crawly things dramatically increases outside of the home.  Not my bag baby.

Two… I can’t stand on a chair without getting sick.  This means that my chances of standing on a ladder and climbing up on the house are NON EXISTENT.

And Three… watching anyone else doing anything dangerous (ie: standing on a ladder) makes me anxious and bossy.  So in the case of poor Hubby, then I would be out there all “be CAREFUL!”, “Wait, that isn’t safe”, “do you really think you should put that there?”, “is that safe?”, “stop rolling your eyes at me!”, “I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU! WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!” and so on.

Get it?  Yeah, yeah poor poor Hubby.  Moving on.

So you see why I don’t participate in the outdoor decorations?  But I of course want to see the lights on my house, so that means Hubby wins the honor of putting them up.  And lucky for me, he doesn’t complain about it.

And actually he does such a good job that the neighbors get jealous.  Here is a pic from last year.

We are the house on the left.  LOL

HAHA!! Seriously, can you imagine?  That is awesome!  Although I can’t imagine that dudes light bill!  Talk about overboard on the lawn ornaments! Sheesh!

The Fed Ex Guy just showed up, and for the 2nd day in a row he had to see my in my pink flowered MuuMuu.  Poor guy.  I have killed his sex drive for the better part of a week I would guess.

Are you searching for that perfect gift?  Not having a lot of luck?  This is a must have for those chilly winter days.  I am getting them for everyone in my family.

I need to get some editing done so that I can post some Daily Photo Blogs again.  I just haven’t had a chance.

Hubby got me a Nintendo DSi for Christmas!!  And I got it early.  Early as in, the day after Thanksgiving.  Schweeeeeeeeet!

It’s lots of fun, so I have been playing Brain Games (Not Mind Games, although that is fun too *wink*) and Puzzle games a lot.  I feel like an old lady though, trying to figure out how to get it going.  Give me a Pong or a  Nintendo and some Mario Bros. or Duck Hunt and I can kick some ass! But anything manufactured after 1987 is foreign to me.

OMG, do you remember Coleco?  Did you have one?  We did.  I used to play Mousetrap and Smurfs on mine.  LOVED those games.

Monkey is boycotting food again.  I think he is teething though because he is gnawing on his hands for the majority of the day now.  But yesterday I could only get him to eat a Tater Tot and an Apple.  I am so worried about this kid.  His dad and I love food! Why doesn’t he?  It’s weird.

Ok, now I am hungry after talking about food.  Haha!

Have a fantastic Wednesday!
