So I think I am going to do something I thought I would never do....

Get an artificial pre-lit tree.

I love going and getting a real tree, but given that Chris is in and out all the time with work, I figured this would be the best thing to do. He leaves on Wednesday and won't be back until the 17th... so it really doesn't leave us a lot of time to go tree hunting.

I guess I will just have to get a Yankee Christmas candle to get that evergreen smell.

On another note...

Chris and I went and saw The Blind Side last night... it def. gets a big A+ in my movie rating. It is the best movie I have seen all year (I haven't seen New Moon yet). If you haven't seen it.... go ASAP to go see it.

I've heard some reviews say that Sandra Bullock did a crappy southern accent, but I thought she was suburb.

Hope everyone had a nice Monday back at work. =)

Fat & Happy and Hello's.....

HELLO to all my new followers!

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. Mine went by too fast... and I am already starting with the Monday Blues!

So here is a little recap from Thanksgiving..... and few pictures to add some color. =)

Let me start off by say Wednesday night wasn't very pretty... well it was, but I was a little over dramatic with Chris and his roommates.

I planned (in my head) that Wednesday when I got off work I would go over to the bachelor pad to start prepping for Thursday (any sane person would do the same). I get over to the BP and I walk into the boys being all dolled up and ready to hit the town!! Umm... excuse me.... WTH do you all think your doing??? Chris's response is "we are going out to get some dinner and have a few drinks".... I pretty much flipped a lid.... and said a few choice words. Thank goodness my sister was there because she pretty much put the fear of god in them..... they still ended up going out.. which was fine, because at that point I didn't want any of them in my face. And I may or may not have told my sister... might poison them.

But after their 5 1/2 hour "Dinner & Drinks" they told me how much they appreciated me...

Movin on........ Thursday came.... made the lovely breakfast... which for some odd reason I didn't take pictures of... I think I was just trying to stay on schedule.

Then time for lunch..... made the yummy lunch.. which again.. no pictures... sorry...

And on to the feast.... I did take pictures of this! =)

My very 1st turkey ........

It looks small in this picture, but it was huge in real life... it was a 20lb turkey...

My pretty table scape.... AND the very first bouquet of flowers Chris has given me...... (I think that was an ass kiss move to make up from the night before)

And the adorable little turkeys..... I had one at each place setting. (props to everyone who posted how to do this cute little treat)

Another view of the table scape...

See those little acorns in there??? I seriously had to argue with my 4 year old niece for about an hour to let me borrow her acorns. Don't ask why she started a collection of acorns, but I now know that she is a little anal about letting people borrow them. I had to trade her popcorn seeds for the acorns... and a promise to bring all of them back! Ehh.. really Skylar... get over yourself!
Sad thing is.... she's a spitting image of me.

This I am sad to say is the only picture I have of the turkey reveal.... =(
In between cooking the feast.... Chris ended up getting sick. He had a 101 fever and the cold chills. So needless to say he didn't get to enjoy dinner at all....... and NO I DIDN'T poison him! Although he swears I did. I just told him it was karma for being a douchenozzle the night before (a'la klaw).
We didn't even eat the homemade apple pies I made or the cheesecake cupcakes.... =( I did however manage to make the Banana Frosters... by that point I needed a little Captain Morgan in my life....
Friday, we woke up.....(not butt ass early as we had planned, to do black Friday) Chris ended up sweating out his fever we laid around and ate leftovers for lunch.... and Chris ate his plate I saved for him from the night before.
We finally went and hit up Best Buy.... and what did we get........
An early Christmas present from Chris!
Hi, I'm Carrie and I'm a PC. (although I didn't get mine for free)
Yes, I know I was talking about getting a Mac, but after Chris was talking to me about it, he mentioned a good point and that would be... that if anything ever happened to the Mac or it needed to be serviced that I would have to take it to the APPLE store. Ummm.... yeah... I'm totally lazy when it comes to stuff like that and he had a good point, I wouldn't want to take it in.
The APPLE store is a good 30 minutes away from where I live and that just seemed like a hassle.
I am super excited... no more holding in my adapter to charge my Dell! Good bye prehistoric laptop.... Hello... sleek white HP! I love you.... I shall call you...... Frannie. =)
And just a little random tid bit about Virginia...... we have thee most craziest weather here..... It can be nice and warm in the morning...... to turn around to have it sunny on one side of the house... and storm clouds on the other side..... skittle size hail.... and then it turning freezing.
And this happens all year round.......

~K~..... it's late... I need sleep.... sorry for all the randomness....

Heidi you biznitch....

(photo from US weekly)

Ummmm....... really

On top of your Beauty.......... fashion style.... and Uber cuteness.....

you just had to go and show everyone up and walk the Runway 5 weeks after your baby girl!

I hate you! Not really... I am just super jealous of all your dedication to get back in shape!

Whole lotta goodness.....

Okay... so the Big Bird cartoon wasn't that funny yesterday... well a little it was, but .. anyways....

So I was superduper busy last night with getting the menu planned for Thursday and going grocery shopping..

On top of that my guest list went from 4 to 8! WTF!?! That all took place while I was at the grocery store.

And since this will be my first official Thanksgiving that I will be cooking, I decided to go ALL OUT...

So ladies I present to you my menu....

Egg Cheese Ham Casserole
Banana Bread
Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup
Ham Cuban Sandwiches
Creamy Bacon Filled Crescents
Cheesy Mashed Potatoes
Collard Greens (not for me)
Pearl Onions
Cranberry Sauce (straight from the can)
Green Bean Casserole
Broccoli w. Cheese Sauce
Red Wine
White Wine
Home Made Apple Pie
Vanilla Ice Cream
Banana Froster's Drink (Yes, I know I put Froster's instead of Foster's that is the name of the drink)
Followed by a whole bunch of games.... should be a fun time.
I'm kinda nervous about cooking for everyone... and I pray to the big man that I don't screw up!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday! =)

Hey er' body!
Looks like everyone had a great weekend!

Here is a little recap of the weekend

Friday: Came into work for a few hours.... then I decided to hit up Off Broad way, just to browse and then proceeded to walk around the store with a box in hand for 20 mins. I am sure the store workers thought I was up to something. And after sending my girlfriend a picture she justified my wanting these shoes and I ended up purchasing my very 1st pair of booties! They look almost just like this... except they are peep toed and have a little ruffle at the ankle part. (sorry couldn't find the exact picture of the shoe).

So after my purchase I went and hung out with my girlfriend who justified my purchase... she drooled over them... tried them on.... and decided she wanted to go get a pair. =)

Saturday: Went and picked Chris up at 6:30 in the morning from the ship.... just to head straight to his softball tournament. We were there until 7:30 pm... which makes for a LONG day!

Has anyone else ever ordered $40 worth of food from McDonald's?? Neither had I until Saturday, when I went and got food for the whole softball team.

This is how that order went...

McD's Man: Can I take your order
Me: Yes, just warning you it's going to be a long one, but I need to get 3 double cheeseburgers no onion no pickle, I need to get 1 fish fillet, 2 McChicken's and 20 McDouble's, a fry and a coke.
McD's Man: Did you say 1 McDouble?
Me: No I said 20.... they aren't all for me
McD's Man: Whoa.... alright.. here is your total

So I pull around and give him my check card.... and he said pull forward.. they will have you sign your receipt up at the next window...

Young McD boy: Here's your coke
Me: Thank you
Young McD boy: You really didn't need 20 McDouble's did you?
Me: Ummmm....Yes I did.... which I already paid for them

You should have seen the look on there faces.....

Saturday night we were suppose to go watch the UFC fight, but decided to be sloths and stay in.. I think we were asleep by 9:30.

Sunday: Chris woke me up at 8 for no reason. Well actually his reason was because he couldn't sleep, he decided to wake me up. So we did yard work, and cleaned out his gutters. And then we went to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch some football... and stuff our faces.

So YAY to the Giants for finally getting off their losing streak!

Only time you will ever hear me say YAY for the Cowboys... and their pathetic win...

Go Kansas City for the BIG win over Pittsburgh

And of course my team gets a BIG shout out for their win GOOOOO... PATRIOTS!


So I am going shopping tonight for the big feast on Thursday

I am making the boys sit at the dining room table this year.... no sitting in the den in front of the television... we are doing things the correct way this year. =)

Is anyone else cooking?

Does anyone have any good recipes they would like to share???

Please and Thank you! =)

Gotta... run.... works stressin' me out.... have a great night everyone.

I did it....

..... well everything but join the circus! =)

If anyone likes Bloody Mary's and wants a good mix... the Zing Zang mix is delicious! By far my favorite. =)

~ ciao bitches

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

This is what I want to do today.......

I want to down 20 Bloody Marys... super spicy

And devourer 2 bags of these!
That's the kind of day I am having!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Last Wednesday I babysat for my friends Kerri & Blake and decided to make use of the new Nikon. =) *beware tons of baby pictures*

Skylar Reese

Big Sister & Little Sister

Little Princess

Kylie & Skylar

Look at those perfect little lips

K & S snuggling

All the kiddos

I love this one of them
So Chris emailed me last night, and said that his PTS got denied again at work. =( Which means that he can't stay at his rank and can't cross rate over to another department in the Navy. He has put in another form so he will hear in January if it is accepted or denied again, and if it's denied he get booted from the military! =(
This whole scenario is confusing, because he passes all the test that are given.... exceeds at all the physical training that he is tested on, barely takes leave and does everything plus more that is asked of him.
He just emailed me and is pretty bummed about everything. And for Chris to be bummed is UNHEARD of!
But like I told him, everything happens for a reason, and that I would be more then happy to be his SUGAR MOMMA. =)

Hope all you crazy's are having a great day!

You know what I hate? A forgetful boyfriend,who forgets to pay the utility bill before he goes out to sea! I mean seriously.. how hard is it to stroke a check when the bill comes in???

So a measly $113.17 bill turns into a $138.16 bill. I know it isn't much, but it's frustrating.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Mine wasn't that interesting so I won't bore everyone. =)

First things first...

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! =) I FINALLY submitted my picture to Summer for her 'stache contest. Nothing like waiting until the last min! =) That's my procrastination coming out in me. ~Sorry Summer =(

And my scarf swap partner probably hates me, because I slacked on getting pictures up here of my lovely, thoughtful gift.... Sorry again D... don't hate me.....

My lovely package before I unwrapped it....

All my goodies laid out.... I love the color purple and I love this scarf! I can't wait for it to actually get cold so I can rock it out!
Yummy lip balm (Minted Rose). I am seriously addicted to anything lip gloss related, I probably have at least 15 tubes of gloss in my purse (I'm not kidding either)... along with my handy dandy Burt's Bee's mint chapstick (I ALWAYS have one in my purse and one on my night stand).
And a "Adult" Mad Libs book. I haven't done one of these in ummm... FOR-EV-ER! It should be fun... and depending on how the first one comes out I may share or may not... so stay tuned. =)

And here is the picture of the gorgeous scarf on....... My sister informed me that white isn't my color! Thanks Dana.... appreciate it!
Again a BIG THANKS to D for my great gift! =)
The weather here in Virginia still blows... streets are flooded.... my Mom's fence blew over (great another thing for her to bitch about).... stranded cars every where..... it's just plan ole' gross here.
I posted some pictures for you to see ... in case you were interested. =)

The lake in my back yard ... where the trees are is the bank of where the lake should be...

The street to get to the house...

My girl friend Erica's brand new Ford Edge (only 3 weeks old) =(

Erica wadding back from her car! Her car that she just sold.... 3 years ago the same thing happened to where we had a major storm and flooded her car out... and now this happens to her AGAIN... =(

My 15 minute drive to work..... ended up to be a 45 minute drive to work, because of all the damn flooding...

And your probably wondering why I am at work on a Friday since I normally don't work on Fridays?

It's because I am raping the clock and getting more hours.... well not technically raping, because they asked me to come in and answer the phones... which hasn't rang once since I have been here!

Well I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend! Happy Friday. =)

Award for my 40 followers!

The lovely Kelly over @ Keeping up with Kelly & co. tagged me for an award. =)

She's pretty fabulous! And she's kinda got me on the OWL bandwagon. If you haven't stopped by her blog yet, go stop by and check her out. Now, the rules of this award are pretty simple. I have to list 10 interesting facts about yourself. And pass the award on to 10 lovely bloggers.

1.) Chris & I have been dating for over 2 years, and neither of us have said "I Love You"..... well he has, but when he is super wasted. Although we both know deep down that we love each other I won't say it and neither will he.*when we first started dating we both were stubborn and each of us said we would never say it first.... why? I have no idea!* ~is that weird?
2.) I prefer blue ink pens over black
3.) I love the smell of lemon pinesol
4.) I clean my office (vacuum,dust,windex, garbage, and wipe down bathrooms) for an extra $560 a month.
5.) I hate feet
6.) I hate tomatoes
7.) Next year I plan to grow my own herb (not that kinda herb) garden.
8.) I have never done an illegal drug in my life!
9.) I never really see my so called BFF, we text every now and then... and I always make plans with her, just for her to cancel them the day of! Does this mean she shouldn't be my BFF?? Sometimes I wonder....... some input would be nice.
10.) For the past few years my Mother and I haven't been on the same page..... kind of a love hate relationship.
So to pass this on....... lemme just say, I am not holding any of you to re-post this... cause we all LOVE getting awards... but it gets kinda tiresome to re post and re post.... so take it... love it... and pass it on if you want too.
I am giving it to all my 40 followers....
You all make my day go by fast. And you keep me VeRy entertained! Thank you all. =)

IDA you piece of S#!&....

This is what the weather looks like here in Virginia. And it's suppose to continue for the next two days with 45+ mile winds. They closed all the schools and sent all the military people home that are on the carriers (Well, everyone except Chris... he has duty =().

T.P. Assistant called in because school's were closed and she conveniently didn't have anyone to watch her kids. No comment on that situation.......

The Bank we use just called and said "Due to the weather conditions we aren't making runs today".

But here I am..... sitting at work.... crossing my fingers and hoping that the electricity goes out or something.

Happy Birthday to my Big Sister! She turns 31 day..........

So Chris got home a day early yesterday... YIPPIE!

And he surprised me with a nice dinner in the city at Kincaids. I really wanted to take pictures of all the yummy food we got, but I didn't want people staring at me like I was crazy for taking pictures of my food.


3 tower sampler:

1st tower: 4 large garlic prawns with mashed potatoes
2nd tower: Teriyaki steak bites with rice and ginger
3rd tower: Crab and Artichoke Dip with Rosemary bread


Me: Salmon Oscar: Salmon topped with crab meat, asparagus, spinach, and fingerling potatoes with a bearnaise sauce.

Chris: 12oz Prime rib with mashed potatoes and little crispy onion rings

and we ordered a side of baked mac ~n~ cheese with bacon


Chocolate Indulgence with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (which I ate by myself.... not all of it because the cake was too rich)

I was totally looking forward to having the salmon for lunch today, but I would like to give a BIG THANKS to Layla for being a pain in the ass and making me forget it.

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

Just kidding... that's not all....

I decided to start my Christmas List for Chris.

I thought this would get me in a better mood.

Here are just a few things on my wish list.....(coach)
I still have this on my wish list..... it's so purdy!

I love this dress... even though I am 99% sure it will make me look like a heffer

Ummm..... this is on the TIPPY TIPPY TOP of my wish list.... and I will throw a major hissy if I don't recieve! Is that childish? Yes, but it's an investment.... and then when we move out in 2011 we won't have to get a new one!

I <3>
It's Wednesday (In case you didn't know).....

I'm in a funk.....

IDA sucks....

And the weather here sucks too.... =(

That's all....

Sunny day... sweepin the clouds away......

(google all pics.)

Happy 40th Anniversary to you Sesame Street Gang!

I <3 you! I loved watching you everyday before kindergarten. And I hope you are around when I have off spring!

I however, DID NOT like this Chester! Mr. Rogers to this day still gives me the heebie jeebies! I don't know what it is, but I don't like him and never will. (sorry if any of you are related to this fella) And his little sidekick puppets were just as creepy.

And what was up with the routine with putting on the cardigan and shoes? It's just weird.

My sister on the other hand LOVED watching Chester.


Well as you all may remember I was a little stoked about getting my braces off and moving into Invisalign. Well that didn't happen! =( But Doc said I wouldn't be in my braces for that much longer. (I'm doubling up on my rubber bands to get more movement)

I am SUPER STOKED about the lovely grill piece coming off... so I ordered these babies. Bleaching trays for ortho. patients! WHOOO.... HOOO...... =) They go right over the g. piece and voila... they whiten from the inside out so I won't have the discoloration from where the brackets were.

So as soon as Doc gives me a certain day when the nice bling bling is coming off... I will be whitening away. =)

Have a fabulous Tuesday gals!

Found it...

I lost my camera cord briefly, but it has been located now!
And I thought I would post a few "post worthy " pictures. =)

Does anyone's "other " ruin pictures, by trying to be funny? Chris does this all the time! It's cute, BUT very annoying.
Aww... my baby girl! She was being a little jerk face and wouldn't sit still long enough for me to take a picture of her.

Don't ask why she sits like this. I think this is her lazy sitting, after our 4 mile walk. =)

My girlfriend Cat as Batwoman!

Christopher thinking he is a Pimp Daddy!

And probably the best costume all night.... Martin as the 80's Aerobics Instructor.

My weekend was kind of chill...
Friday: Went to my friends Kerri & Blake's house, and we drank strawberry daiquiri's until 1:30 in the morning.
Saturday: Helped my sister clear out her room, for the new carpet that was getting laid on Sunday. Then went back over to Kerri & Blake's house to watch a little college football and then the fight that was on.
I don't understand how grown men could possibly love getting the shit beat out of them. And on top of that rolling around in each others blood and sweat! NO THANK YOU!
Sunday: Helped my sister lay her carpet. I still don't know how I got sucked into that whole ordeal, but it's done. I am debating on if I want to pop over there tonight and finish helping her get her room back in order.
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! =)

Super Duper Excited

Our very own home grown Timbaland!
~K~... I think that's it for all the randomness for today. =)
