On another note: I know ya'll go to Target. I go there quite often, I went there tonight. I've always went through the $ section there at the front of the store. I found some cute little stocking stuffers there tonight and there was other stuff.....but then I looked at where it was made and of course it was Made in China. I know not everything is contaminated with lead, but I would rather not risk it. I also know that I own many things that are made in China and who knows, they could contain lead. But knowing what I know about the contamination in products, especially toys, it made me pass right by the cute little stuffers. It's a shame that we even have to worry about it. I'm just saying.....

*my husband. I am his yin, he is my yang.
*my marriage, rough spots and all.
*my parents. They are awesome in every which way.
*my sister. If she only knew how wonderful she is.
*my niece and nephew. They rock!
*my in-laws. They love me like their own.
*my friends. From far away to close by, they accept me for me and allow me to realize how precious close friends are. I miss you guys!
*my Okie and Dixie. They will always keep my feet warm under the covers. They always make me smile.
*my home in Wyandotte. I can always go there.
*for my life and how blessed I have been. There are many materialistic things I am thankful for like Hobby Lobby, Target, ice tea makers, chi straightening irons, DVR's, cookies, pepperoni pizza and the list goes on. But those things don't kiss me goodnight, send me sweet cards for every holiday imaginable, drink wine while watching animal rescue shows, explain the ups and downs of a successful marriage or give me that cozy feeling in my heart when I look at them.
This year I count my blessings and give thanks for all I have.

Now, I'm back in Kansas and won't be going back to Wyandotte until after Christmas, due to our honeymoon to NYC. (yay!) I don't know about everyone else but going home gives me some of the best feelings in the world. Loving hugs, inside jokes, smells in the kitchen, loud breakfasts with the family, wet grass in the morning, kids running around, watching dad out and about the ranch, mom obsessing about every video on CMT, my sister and I bickering in our loving way and lingering hugs when you are leaving. I love home!
In other news.....
Happy Birthday Oklahoma! I wasn't in OKC for the weekend to celebrate with all the wonderful events, but I WAS in Oklahoma. So happy 100th to my favorite state.
Also, my parents had their 37th Wedding Anniversary on Friday. Amazing love story right there....I'll save that for another post.
Until my next visit, goodnight to all my family in the boonies.

Weeds-I think Mary-Louise Park is just adorable. I love the way she tilts her head while chewing on a straw from one of her many coffee drinks of the day. (Ok, I may have a small crush on her.) I also just love how this show is put together. Who couldn't love this dysfunctional family of drug dealers?
The Real Housewives of Orange County-There is something about watching "housewives" lounge in the pool, wear and drive bling bling and get botox that is satisfying. Oh, I can't wait to be a "real" housewife.
Wednesday: This is my busy night, I might be cutting out Life.
Project Runway-Who needs an explanation?
Gossip Girl-High school students in the ritzy part of NYC, spoiled rotten brats who do everything and anything. It' great!
Life-The jury is still out on this one. I liked it at first, but I've got to make room for Project Runway.
Grey's Anatomy-an old classic that still gets to me.
Friday Night Lights- If you ever planned your entire social calendar around a football game in high school or college for that matter, you'll like this show. Plus there is a lot of drama in this one small town.
This is usually the night we rent a movie, watch random shows or watch shows we missed during the week. Thank you DVR!
King of the Hill-I love me some Hank Hill.
Dexter-I love this serial killer, I don't care how wrong that is.
Monday, November 12, 2007
Another exciting blog brought to you by CharlyGirl. :)
Sunday, November 11, 2007
I'll craft some, watch Dexter and then night night.
That's all you get from me tonight. I PROMISE a picture of the hair will be here tomorrow. You don't want to see it right now, no energy to fix it.

Hideaway Pizza- I had the wonderful fried mushrooms, the Mob Boss (lots of pepperoni, bacon!, onions and garlic) and a Corona to top it off. Oh, how wonderful this pizzeria is....it rocks!
Camps-We had lunch here on Saturday. It was good, but not as good as it use to be. The sandwich I had did have bacon on it though. Can you tell I love bacon!
Someplace Else-We had to go there to have a few cookies. I use to eat here a lot when I worked at the magazine. I had my favorites.....white chocolate chip macadamia nut and a lemon bar. I washed those down with a good ol' root beer.
Irma's-This is my favorite burger joint in OKC. I had the No Name burger w/ bacon (I'm going to have to stop with this bacon addiction) and french fries. We wanted a maple pecan cookie, but they only had one! Can and I split it and they went ahead and brought us out 4! chocolate chip cookies. Works for me!
Tomorrow I will have Pei Wei before heading out of town. I'll have to eat there by myself because Brady doesn't care for it. That is fine with me...
So until next time OKC, thanks for all the great grub and bacon. I'll be back soon!

Italian Creme, Carrot and Red Velvet....Oh my!
I loved my dress.
Tuesday, November 6, 2007
Yes, that figure is right....$330.44! Crazy! That could have been a lot of home cooked meals, some debt paid off or a lot else. Here I go trying to justify it all, but last month was kind of crazy with the wedding and all. Seriously though, we really need to cut down on eating out. I think once a week would be fine, but I don't know if the hubby would go along with that. I would ask him, but I made the mistake of giving him a VERY EARLY Christmas present and he has now been hooked to an ipod for three hours.
So here is my challenge to at least myself, do not eat out this week, other then OKC, or next week. I'll post about this in two weeks and we'll see how much money I've saved.

Look at all the fun colors and prints!
We also went to Borders and I found this really cute book on how to make little stuffed "mascots" (that's what the book calls them.) So here are my end results. These are a gift for my best friends little girl. I'm going to try them out on her and if successful, lord help us all......there will be felt madness at my house. Poor Brady!
The yellow/polka-dot thing is a monster, then there is the little brown dog with a purple spot and then there is the letter V. It's for a little boy I know whose name starts with a V.....who could that be??
This is the adorable little brown puppy with the purple spot, that is his name. I'm going to make up a little story to go along with the monster and the dog to let the gift recipient know who they are.....
Tomorrow I'll tell ya'll about my adventure to the Goodwill. Oh yeah, I'm also going to try and learn how to knit. I've got plenty of time on my hands, don't you think?

I will try to post everyday. I'm sure I have 30, now 28 days worth of stuff to talk about. Blog on!
I know there are reasons why I've had such a good week, let me list them:
- I learned to wear pumps. Not that I didn't know how, but I enjoyed wearing them. They made me feel "put together" and not like a slob.
Purdy brown pumps with really cute inside print
- I didn't take a sleeping aid all week and I felt better then ever in the mornings. I didn't lay back down, fall asleep, then realize, oh crap I have to be at work in 30 minutes.
- I was at work early or just in time everyday this week. Doesn't happen that much.
- I drank lots of ice tea. I heart my new ice tea maker.
Bow to the ice tea maker!
- I didn't dress sloppy at all this week. See the above comment about the shoes. I even tried when it came to putting on makeup and fixing my hair.
- The wedding pictures were posted on the photographers website. They are so good! I don't know how we will ever choose. It made me so happy to see them and relive the day all over again. I can't wait to look at them with Brady.
- Oh yeah, duh! I finally started this blog. I'm excited about this new adventure.
- I haven't watched that much TV. I'm going to try and limit my TV intake. We will see how that goes, especially with Project Runway coming on soon. "Make it work." I heart Tim Gunn.
- I think the thing that has made me the happiest this week is my renewed excitement to create. Create, Create and Create some more. There is a blog that is so inspiring and awesome. I don't know just yet how to link to it (will try and read Daisy's email about doing all the fun technical stuff later). It's called SouleMama. This woman is amazing. She has so many good ideas. She allows her children to create, imagine, pretend, express, play and just be themselves. I love it! She has inspired me to make/create all my Christmas presents, especially the ones for the kiddos. I'm ecstatic about this. I'm heading to Hob Lob tomorrow with Vicki to search for the materials for said presents. Vicki is even letting me borrow her sewing machine. Yes, some of the crafts involve sewing. Eek! I will post my creations as I go.
- One more thing that is making me happy, I'm going to try and get over my phobia of old stuff by going to the GoodWill. That is a post in itself. I'll just leave you hanging on that one until I post about it.
- I lied. One more thing that is making me happy. I feel like life is just good. We have all the normal problems. Bills, money, more bills, being sickly, etc. But Brady and I are together, the stress of the wedding is over, Brady is back to good health, work is going good, we have good friends, wonderful family, we have a honeymoon to NYC coming up in December, my creative juices are flowing again.....life is just good.
Ask me about all of this next week and things might change, but for now I'm one happy chick.
