We saw santa!!!!

We saw Santa the other day!
And guess what?
He didn't smell like beef or cheese!
I didn't get to tell him he sits on a throne of lies...
Good news is I think he was the real one!
My mama went with me
My lil man was perfect!
He even let me brush his hairs down!
After bribing with a cookie...
Santa and him had a full convo.
And he didn't ask for a new mommy, not even once!!

Here's a cute lil quiz I found:)

25 Questions: Holiday Style
  • Eggnog or hot chocolate?
Hot Chocolate!!

  • Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Wraps em! We even get presents from the reindeer!
  • Colored lights on tree/house or white?
Colored lights on the house, old fashioned like.
White lights on the tree!

  • Do you hang mistletoe?
  • When do you hang your decorations up?
Day after Thanksgiving
  • What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?

Why would you exclude dessert???
Tamales, just wanted to be difficult and question the question:)

  • Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Every christmas eve my seester and I would sneak out super early and look over our goods. We would count all the presents to make sure it was fair and even and then would put everything back the way we found it and would wait till our parents would wake up .
We thought we were so clever!!
  • What is on your Christmas wish list?
Tons o stuff! One particular wrapped in a red bow;)
  • Do you open a gifts on Christmas Eve?
No, we were never allowed to. My dad thought it ruined christmas, haha!
Besided we had the tamales to unwrap...

  • How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
white lights and lots of old ornaments

  • Snow? Love it or dread it?
LOVE!! Please bring snow santa!!!

  • Real tree or fake tree?
Real all the way, for sure! I love the smell and look of it!
  • Do you remember your favorite gift?
Barbie Motorhome, hands down!
  • What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you?
I love everything about the holidays! This year is a lil different tho...
  • What is your favorite holiday dessert?
My mama's cheesecake!!
  • What is your favorite tradition?
I used to love going to Midnight Mass at our church. We haven't done that for awhile. Something about seeing all of the littles dressed up and singing christmas songs.
I miss christmas when we were little. So much excitement!!
Can't wait to see my lil man's face:)
  • What tops your tree?
An Angel

  • Do you prefer giving or receiving?
I love giving gifts! I hate opening presents in front of people. I want to see the other persons face when they open their present from me. If you get me a gift it must be sentimental:)
  • What is your favorite Christmas song?
Im pretty sure all of them!! I love christmas music:)

  • Candy canes, yuck or yum?
Gross!!! Im not a sweets person at all! Plus I try not to give them to my son either.
I almost had to give him the heimlich (sp?) the other day after seeing santa because he choked on it:/
  • Favorite Christmas movie?
ELF! A Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, all of the claymation cartoon movies!!
  • What do you leave for Santa?
Santa will get anatomically correct gingerbread men (yeah you read that right) Egg nog and carrots for the reindeer!

  • Do you have a Christmas morning tradition?
When we were young we had to wait till the parentals got up. This entailed brushing their teeth possible showering. OMG! Eternity for a child, but since we had already peeked at our presents the night before we were able to wait
  • Do you prefer to shop on-line or at the mall?
More and more I am loving the online shopping! I hate the crowds! Plus you can just ship it to whomever you get the present for:)

  • Christmas letter or Christmas card?
Well theres a story with this one... We used to get Christmas letters from a certain family growing up. They were the family that had everything or at least it seemed. They were constantly praising themselves and it got a lil bit annoying. So one christmas we wrote our own letter. I wish that we could find it. We are a pretty funny family and the letter was a riot! We never received another letter from the family again. I wonder how they are doing...
Christmas Cards:)
  • Photo christmas cards now!

It's ok, right??

...It's ok that I totally teared up when Gavin was talking with Santa

...It's ok that I have waited till the absolute last minute to buy anything for Christmas

...It's ok that I actually used my Christmas money to buy something for me, buyers remorse!

...It's ok that every morning I have the best of intentions of getting up earlier and fail, miserably!

...It's ok that I'm all giggly and loving this time of year!

...It's ok that I am more excited for Christmas morning than I have been in a long time.
Can't wait to see my lil man's face:)

Pinteresting loves!!


Haven't linked up for one of those dohickey's (itsaword) in a while!
Not to say I haven't been pinning away like it was my day job
or if my life depended on it.
Suffice to say:
my dream home is built & decorated well beyond my means
my recipe book is chalk full of delicious amaze recipes
my fake children are dressed to the nines
my man has a wardrobe to envy
as well as my wardrobe
and my sense of humor has stuff waiting in the wings to bust out.

I have no theme, so roll with me!

mustaches, obsessed!!!

Once had a friend roll out of these things while hammered!
I don't think I've ever laughed harder and may have pee'd my pants!
I did actually, i couldn't help her up...


Okay, okay, fine...

Could this lil boy be any cuter, huh??!

Awww, <3

Just because Im starving and pretty sure I could eat 45 of these, now!!!
Get in my belly!! 

So true! All seasons of Friends on DVD please, Santa!! k, thanks! 

Love this!

That's all folks!
Peace out my lil rabbits! 

wanna see me procrastinate? just you wait...

I have lists, everywhere!
Do I finish them?
Does it make me feel better to write them out?
When I have to much to do,
I tend to say eff it and do nothing.
Bad, bad habit!!
I did get my christmas cards out, to the immediate family...

So, right now. I am blank.
Chalk it up to being sick with the stomach flu.
Not getting many ideas whilst hovering over, you know!
Im feeling much better, thanks for asking.
Not sleeping very well.
When stressed apparently my body thinks sleeping is overrated.
The bags under my eyes are proof...
The eye twitch is awesomeness too!

I probably drive people crazy when Im like this.
I can't stay on one subject, ever.
I never finish anyth...

This is super cute!
Coordinates of where your loved one is or??
See, told ya!

Today Im taking lil man to see the big guy in the red suit.
I just think it's so weird we take our children, who we tell to stay away from strangers,
to a stranger and have them sit on their lap.
Oh wells, it's what my super cute kid wants to do.

Here is our convo the other night about what he wants from santa...

Me: Gavin, want to go see Santa and tell him what you want for christmas??
Gavin: Yeah, I want to tell him I want a new mommy!
Me: What??! No! You want me to go away?
Gavin: No, I want someone else to cook, clean and do laundry so you can play with me more...
Me: Oh honey, that's called a sister wife. Im down with that.
Gavin: Okay, I want that then!

I can't make the stuff up that comes out of this kids mouth!
4 days till xmas, still havent started shopping...

Have a super awesome day loves!

urg, tummy troubles:(

This is how we spent our weekend.
Sick in bed:(

I did not envision my Friday night to be hovering over the toilet.
The bathroom floor is frigid!
Luckily my amazing mama took care of little man for me.
Although every once in a while he would crawl into bed,
put his hand on my forehead, tell me I was burning up and that his kisses would
make me better:)
He would turn the TV on and hit play and we watched endless hours of sponge bob (kill me), elf & polar express.

My daddy made me fires and mama brought me food!
They're pretty amazing!

I got worried texts from California and pics to make me smile!
Thanks for those mr:)

Happy Monday Loves

dirty old men, x rated movies and doughnuts...

This post comes with a warning...
Do not read this if:
A: You don't like hearing or talking about adult movies.
B: You have a weak stomach when it comes to bodily fluids.
C: You like doughnuts

I guarantee you if you like doughnuts now, you will not like them after reading this.

Apparently some of my friends find this story amusing.
I, at the time, did not!

I used to work for a Video Rental Place

This said video rental place had a lil back room that had a curtain.
Most people that are smart enough just steal them off the Internet, or download them for their viewing pleasure...
The type of clientele that would come in for these movies was older men. We had dvd and vhs movies.
It was a great day when we got a big shipment in of new movies!
Occasionally we got the younger ones in. The ones that were embarrassed and would run back there real quick grab the movie and make a beeline for the register.
We liked to make it a torturous experience, by letting them know they had already rented this particular movie 42 times...
There were cameras in the room. Some guys didn't want to spend the $7 on the movie.
They decided they could just look at the peecatures and have some "fun"
 We would scream for them to zip up there pants or we were coming in there.
That usually backfired and they wanted us to come in there.
We had to clean that room often and thoroughly...
The room was right next door to a donut shop.
How do you clean semen off the shelves in that room you ask??
Hot water and bleach!
Armed with a full body suit, gloves and a mask we would take turns cleaning, gag, the shelves off.
Want to know what happens when hot water hits dried semen??
Its disgust, I'm gagging thinking about it!!
So that room smelled of doughnuts and spooge slime when we had to clean it.
I, 6 or so years later, cannot eat a doughnut without thinking about porn.
Hungry now??
I live in a small town, you wouldn't believe the people I would recognize returning these movies.
It embarassed them more than us.
We would just smile:)
That is the short and sweet version of that story...
Did you enjoy that?
Yeah, me either.

You are my sunshine

When life gets tough, I tend to focus on the negatives.
Then, I hear from a friend something that has happened in their life.
Something that hurts my heart
And, all I want to do is take their pain away,
make them not hurt,
heal them.
But, I can't.
Then only thing I can do is be there for them.
No matter how far away they live,
how little we talk.
That doesn't make a friend.
Quality over Quantity.

I don't have all the answers, crap, I rarely have one of the answers.
Life is a dance and you have to know the choreography in order to make it out.
I know everything happens for a reason.
I believe in that.
It's easier to believe when it's the good, but then the bad comes along.
You ask:
Why me?
Why Them?

Last night, my son was being unusually clingy.
Don't get me wrong, this boy likes to snuggle.
But it seemed like he needed it more than usual.
So, I put my computer down, my phone on silent, turned the TV off and gave him my undivided attention.
I rocked him, like I did when he was a baby.
My big boy doesn't fit in my arms like he used to:(
I actually missed him being a lil one...
He asked me to sing him my special song.
No, not the Thong song or Baby got back...
Yes, I do know the words to those songs as well, but that's for a different time and place.
No faith guys, I tell ya;)

Its really hard for me to sing this song.
It makes me cry, for some unknown, ridiculous reason.
My mom used to sing it to me when I was little and to this day, if she sings it I start blubbering like a fool. 
You are my sunshine.

I always tell my son he is my sunshine, and he asks:
"When skies are grey"?
Even when skies are grey he lights up my life:)
So, I sang it and sang it again and then really listened to the words in the second verse.

"You are my sunshine,
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear,
how much I love you
so please don't take my sunshine away".

"The other night dear
while I was sleeping,
I dreamt I held you
in my arms.
When I awoke dear
I was mistaken and I hung my head
and I cried... "

Sad, right?

Today, I send my love out to my dear friend. I may not be there physically to hug you
and to help you through this time in your life.
Please know that I am thinking of you constantly and sending you good thoughts.
You are an amazing mommy, a wonderful wife and a great friend!
I love you to the moon and back!
I know it 's hard right now, but all in good time.

Oregon or Orygun

Please don't ever call it that. I'll smack you!
Even if you are from here, it is not acceptable to go on Jay Leno or David Letterman
and mispronounce the state you are from just because you think you are cool...
No that anyone from our little town ever said that.

Anywho, I thought I would tell you a little about the state I call home, Oregon.

Source: via Sierra on Pinterest

Some random laws of Oregon:
You can read them Here for your state as well!

One may not test their physical endurance while driving a car on a highway.
(Okay, so no lifting weights while driving??)

It is illegal to place a container filled with human fecal matter on the side of any highway.

Babies may not be carried on the running boards of a car.
(Well, where am I supposed to put them??)

A door on a car may not be left open longer than is necessary.
(umm, so what's the necessary time period?)

Dishes must drip dry.
(oh man, I've been doing this one wrong!)

It is illegal to whisper “dirty” things in your lover’s ear during sex.
(What if I yell it??)

Ice cream may not be eaten on Sundays.
(Because it's sinful?)

One may not bathe without wearing “suitable clothing,”
(i.e. nothing, right??)

And on to the pretty of Oregon!

Southern Oregon is close to:
The Rogue River
Rafting, Fishing, Swimming
It's amaze!

Mt Ashland
Skiing, Snowboarding or just making snow angels!
or lets go drink some hot cocoa in front of the fireplace and snuggle!

The Beach!
Careful, the water is usual freezing!!
If you're brave and like to pee in your wetsuit
then you're icky, but can surf!

And then there's Ashland, Oregon
For the granola eating hippies.
I kid, I wish I could live there!
Hey, girls don't even have to wear shirts!
True story, it's a law!

The Shakespearean Festival

Lithia Park, Ashland

Crater Lake

We've got our ducks, quack, quack!

And, we've got the beavers, yeah whatever...

Oregon Motto:

Oregon State Dance: Square dance
That must be why they made us hold hands with
the sweaty boys in P.E. and learn this dance...

Oregon State flower
The Oregon Grape, mmm wine!

Peace out rabbits!

Molly, the package is in the mail!

Well, technically the package was in the mail on Monday...
I'm just a lil late posting this.
I love receiving mail other than bills!
I think we should go back to the day when we sent handwritten letters!

I even get excited when I get magazines in the mail.
I can't wait for my package to arrive and share it with you guys!

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

When I think of a package going in the mail, I think of the movie with Jim Carrey.
He's doing cartwheels on the box and shaking it.
You can hear that something has broken in it.
He kicks it down the hallway...
Ring any bells;)

Molly, I hope that the package makes it to you in one piece!
and that you love everything.
I might have for a minute thought of keeping it for myself...

It's on it's way Molly!!

~Thanksgiving and Black Friday Shenanigans~

Our turkey day was pretty uneventful.
The yummy smells in the kitchen were amaze!
I get my love of cooking from my mama.
She loves to cook and makes amazing food!!

On the menu were brown sugar yams, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberries marinated in Grand Marnier, stuffing and amazing turkey!! 

I never finish anything on my plate, but Thanksgiving is defintely an exception.
Stretch pants and all!
Didn't even have to unbutton the pants;)


My pretty mama with her turkey:)

And, that is all of the pics from turkey day that I got.
Apparently I was too busy eating all of my food and then the food coma that commenced afterwards!

But then came Black Friday!
I've done the whole get up super early wait in line and elbow people out of the way for a few measly deals.

I wasn't in the mood for that.
Then, my friend
and I decided to hit up Fred Meyer and get some socks.
Sounds exciting right??
Well, its the only time of year I buy socks.
Their socks are 50% off!
Everyone in the family gets socks for Christmas!

We met bright and early, 7am, and were ready for the crowds!
There were two rounds of shopping. One at 7am and one at 10am.
The 7am one was cake. The older women came out at 10am and they were vicious!
They refused to move, and would park their carts right in the middle of the aisle.
Lesson learned that day. The younger ones are nicer than the old ones!

He's super jazzed to be up at 7am shopping with me for socks...

Socks, upon socks, upon socks!!

time to wait...

We found ways to be entertained :)

Free doughnuts and apple juice!

= happy boy, mama looks ti-red!

and someone got some new rain boots!!
