A Few Things

It's Thursday - finally. This week has been super long, probably due to the icy roads and all that jazz. But, down to business...

We got a new tv Saturday. Did we need one? No. Actually, we replaced our 51 inch projection style tv with a 52 inch LCD. Hmm, what does that mean? It looks prettier. So..of course we had to get HD tv - because um, who has an HD capable tv and no HD service? Yeah, I dunno. Anyways, that also meant that we got a new DVR. So, the TiVo is now in the bedroom. Oh yeah, it is. Which means....drumroll... I get to record WHATEVER I WANT!!! Yes. It's amazing. Hubs gets the DVR in the living room and I get the TiVo in the bedroom. The DVR will hold all the shows we watch together and then his junk...and the TiVo will hold only my stuff. So, what shall I record?! I already have a small list...remember these are shows that I don't "get" to watch in the living room...The list being...
  • Brothers & Sisters
  • Samantha Who?
  • Cooking For Real
  • Paula's Best Meals - or something like that
  • 30 Minute Meals
So..what other shows should I record? We already watch Private Practice, Grey's, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, House and NCIS...Yes, we are tv addicts but we don't watch all those shows every week. :) Leave your suggestions/favorite shows in the comments!
Now, also.. I've been thinking of New Year's Resolutions... Since it's right around the corner... Here is my list so far...
  • Stop drinking so many cokes. Limit is 2 a week.
  • Chocolate is not necessary every day of the week. Just 3 days a week - ha!
  • Make some sort of cleaning schedule...
  • Exercise at least 4 days a week...instead of whenever I make it in the gym. :)
  • Save more $, save more $, save more $!!
  • Love and laugh more. Be happy.
What's your list?

Our Stockings

Where to begin... We put up our very 1st Christmas tree on Saturday!! This is our very first Christmas together as a married couple - and the 1st Christmas tree we've ever put up! Needless to say, it was a whole lot of fun!! We played Christmas music and everything! :)

Also...this being our first married Christmas and all...I ordered us personalized stockings!! I was a little leary of the site at first - it's a "no-name" site - but they turned out great. Click here to visit the site...and below are pictures of our tree and stockings!

Thanksgiving Pictures

Well, it's Monday and I'm back at work... Hooray! No, in all seriousness, I had today off, but came in anyways because I was going insane at home. Not to worry though, I'm taking another day off sometime this month to compensate. ;)
I'd like to thank everyone for their prayers and their concerns. I know we all have days like my last just seems like I've had more of those days here lately than I normally do. Ugh. Anyways, I just wanted to say a big Thank You. Also, I wanted to say a big Thanks to those of you who thought of me over Thanksgiving - that means more than you'll ever know.

So, Thanksgiving... As some of you may recall, this Thanksgiving was extra special for me - It's the first time in years that I've seen my mom and Aunt (and family). How did it go? It went pretty well. I have to admit, I was very nervous. I was so nervous, that I teared up a few times on the drive there. But, it all turned out alright. I don't really have any great stories or anything...but I do have a few pictures.

Here is my mom and me:

Think we look a tad alike? Ha! I have to admit, we do look a lot alike. I cropped out our bellies - Thanksgiving full bellies are not that cute!

And a picture of my grandma and me....

Isn't she the cutest in her red and black outfit? I love my grandma.
And one last picture... of my aunt's family....Notice, they can't all look at the same camera. :)
