One more thing!

Ok, so I had to add one more thing to my list for Christmas. ;) I usually try to avoid commercials (except the funny ones of course), and I especially try not to be persuaded to buy something from seeing an ad or commercial. But when I saw the Dremel Trio the other night, I just couldn't resist. So many ideas for projects from using this one thing started popping in my head! It's the neatest thing!!You can cut, sand and rout with it! :) Plus you can cut all kinds of stuff with it, including wood, plastic, drywall, sheet metal, wall tile and more without switching tools. It has some pretty good reviews on Amazon, even though a few people posted that it doesn't work well on larger projects, and they've broken the bits, but for my smaller crafty projects I think this will do just fine. And I love it's cute little case! haha ;) Anyways, just had to share! This might be my Christmas present to myself!

Some of my favorite things that made my Christmas list this year!

Alright, I thought I'd post some of things that I love this holiday season! I'd love to see what all of you want for Christmas too! So be sure to leave a comment! :)
Ugg Boots! I have wanted a real pair for forever! I have 2 fake versions, which don't get me wrong, they are great but I always have issues getting my jeans comfortably tucked into them. They just aren't wide enough to fit my calves and jeans very well. So I've always held off on a real pair since they cost so much, but this year once I saw the Bailey 3 button version, I was sold! I can unbutton them, stuff my jeans in and then button them back up! No more struggling to get my jeans out of sight!! So I'm hoping there will be a pair of these lovelies under our tree this year!! :)

Next on my list is of course a Silhouette SD Cutter! My mom and I have been looking at these for months and I'm so excited about all the fun things I'll be able to make with it once I get one!!! :)

Next would of course be a gift card for Bonefish! I LOVE this place! The Bang Bang Shrimp are our FAV!! Adam and I could probably eat here once a week if it didn't cost so dang much! I think everytime there is a special occasion we want to go here. Stick with what's good right? :)

Donkey Kong for Wii!! :) I am so ecstatic that they brought this game out for the Wii!! Every year when I was little I'd always be so excited to get the latest Donkey Kong game for my Super Nintendo. I'd be locked away in our spare bedroom for several days until I beat the game, then be ready for the next one! :) I did have to take breaks from time to time when my mom got tired of me yelling at the game when I wasn't playing well. But hey, I wanted to beat the game! :)

And last but not least, SATC 2! :) I LOVE these ladies, and I just can't get enough! I watch the seasons all the time! :) haha They always make me laugh! Plus it combines 2 of my favorite things! NYC and fashion!! LOVE them both! :)

There are plenty of other things I want, but for now, those are the top choices! :) I hope everyone gets exactly what they want from Santa this year!

Upside Down Christmas :)

Even though we are putting up our normal tree, I'm still thinking I want an upside down Christmas tree for our bedroom. :) It would go nicely in the corner, and I'm thinking the 5' one from Home Depot is perfect. :) Adam isn't too keen on my idea, and says he's going to tattle on my to his Dad who is all about traditional Christmas stuff. His Dad won't even give us any ideas as to what he wants for Christmas before Thanksgiving, and refuses to even look at Christmas things before December. haha :) And Adam says I can put in the office, not the bedroom. He just doesn't have any imagination! Oh well, what do y'all think? Upside down or not?

Plus, look how cute this one is! I have no clue where this pic originated from! I found it in a google image search on another blog. :) I'd LOVE to have this in my house along with the person who put it together!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

So Thanksgiving was pretty uneventful other than having to take one of our cats, Nigel, to the emergency vet at 10:30am Thanksgiving Day. He was out in the yard walking in circles, eyes darting back and forth super fast, and acting like he was having a seizure. Adam hopped in the car and took him straight to the emergency vet. We were expecting the worst, but thankfully it was just a major ear infection! I guess I knew that ear issues could affect your balance, but geez he scared us! So after $550, Nigel is at home resting in our laundry room, and we're on day 9 of 14 days of giving him meds. Hopefully he'll be back to normal soon! :)

Other than that, Thanksgiving was lazy lazy. :) We went to Adam's parents about an hour and half late (because of the vet), then headed to my parent's house after that. :) I made my normal stuff, Grandma's potato salad recipe and then maple glazed carrots for mom. haha Those 2 items are becoming yearly requests. Oh yeah, and I made a super simple chocolate pie that I took to Adam's parent's house! I got the recipe from Kraft Kitchens. It seriously took like 10 minutes to throw together. Here it is below if anyone wants it! It turned out sooo good! (Side Note: We used regular cool whip topping, because I couldn't find the chocolate kind, then again I got the ingredients the night before Thanksgiving so that could be I couldnt find it. But it turned out Yummy still!) ;)

Heavenly Chocolate Layer Pie

What You Need:
2 pkg. (3.9 oz. each) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk
1 OREO Pie Crust (6 oz.)
1 tub (6 oz.) COOL WHIP DIPS Chocolate, thawed, divided

Make It
BEAT pudding mixes and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.)
SPREAD 1 cup pudding onto bottom of crust. Whisk half the COOL WHIP DIPS into remaining pudding. Spread over pudding layer in crust; top with remaining COOL WHIP DIPS.

REFRIGERATE 3 hours or until firm.

We did not have time to refrigerate it for 3 hours, so I stuck it in our freezer for about an hour, then in Adam's mom's fridge for another hour while we ate. It turned out just fine. :)

If anyone wants the potato salad and carrots recipes, just let me know. They are both super simple and YUMMY! :) My family has been eating that same potato salad recipe for at least 27 years (i.e., my whole life) :) and I'm sure even longer than that!

So, enough about food. Let's move onto Black Friday. So let me just preface this post by letting everyone know that I LOVE Black Friday. I drag my poor mother around every year fighting crowds, crazy drivers, etc.; and it's usually not for anything specific. I just like going out then. :) But this year, I stayed home with my sick little child, Nigel. But don't think I didn't shop. As soon as I got him home from the vet, I went straight to Victoria's Secret.com to get my free Tote bag. It came the other day, and I LOVE IT! :) They are usually sold out in the stores by the time we make it there, so I think everything worked out this year that I was able to get one online instead. Plus, it was nice hanging out at home, while it rained like crazy, and being able to just shop online!

So, that was our Thanksgiving. I didn't do any decorating, but I can't wait to start on Christmas stuff. I'll be posting some of that this weekend!! :)
