Goodbye 2009.

Hello 2010!!

[ 2009 Philadelphia Fireworks on the waterfront ]

This time last year the Husband & I 
were finishing up our lil' honeymoon in Philadelphia 
& prepping for his deployment. 

2009 was a rough year as we spent most of it apart.
 But thankfully he made it back - SAFE & SOUND
& we are together!
We blessed beyond measure.

So goodbye 2009 & hello 2010!

PS -  remember Y2K? ... yeah, that was a DECADE ago! 
Whew, time flies!!

One year ago...

I married my best friend!
The love of my life.
The man with the best sense of direction I know...
The man whose smile makes my heart melt...
The man whose kisses make me weak in the knees...
The man who knows me better than I know myself...
 Happy ONE year anniversary Lovie!
You are my FAVORITE!

Snow night.

As I said in my last post
 it snowed all day & pretty much all night Saturday.

Once again, Piper had to go out to go potty
 (which really was just an excuse to play in the snow) 

So of course I took my camera to try & capture some shots...

Snow day.

It snowed ALL day Saturday (& a lil' bit into Sunday too)
Leaving a wintery white blanket everywhere.
Beautiful as it happened. 
But not so fun as it had to be shoveled.
But such is life, right?

Piper & I spent a good bit of time outside 
 as it was her first major snow.

 Plus the husband & I were trying desperately
 to have a successful "potty" or two outside...
ahh puppy potty training, gotta *heart* it - tee hee hee

Pardon me do you have the time?

I *heart* watches.
 They are so great and so versatile- they go with everything!
I guess you could say they are possibly the perfect accessory.

Right now I am seriously craving & dreaming of these...

JCrew Military Watch made exclusively for them by Timex
cute, no?

Even better you can purchase interchangeable bands 
in uber sweet colors & stripe patterns

I like the dark pumpkin & black stripe best.

A very classic Boyfriend watch from Fossil
(I love that the face is bigger then a normal women's watch!)
** UPDATE - The Husband surprised me
& gave me this watch for our anniversaryHe's the best! **

(would look super cute layerd with a locket or pearls don't ya think?)

She went to Nashville.

... with a suitcase in her hand?!

The husband kinda, sorta found out where the job will be
 (it could still change)
But for the moment the city he was told is... 
So if you know anything about Nashville
 or heck, if you live there, please let me know ALL about it.

 I'm very eager to know things from locals & people who've been there.
This is a VERY big decision after all.

I really *heart* my...

Red wellies.
They are just simply perfect for mucky weather. 
Snow. Sleet. Rain. Mud.
You name it they are perfect.

Plus if you get them in a funky color or pattern
  like I got here from Target they seem to brighten total strangers days.
(& what is not to love about that?!)

Case in point- while getting coffee this morning,the FedEx man said to me-
"Those are some SPIFFY boots!"

Tee hee hee. I *heart* it.


The Graduate.

Man I am getting old...
My baby brother graduated from Penn State University today!

Congratulations Jughead! 

I am SO proud of you 
I  love you very much.

Well it is official. 
major snow storm  is on the way!
Although I never fully take the weather report 
this beauty of a storm appears to be pretty legit.

(a bit of snow from January 09')
Woo hoo!
Maybe we will luck out, get snowed in & have an excuse to snuggle all day.

7 days till Christmas...

Do you think it is too late to do Christmas cards?

I hope not. 
I desperately want to get my two snuggle bugs
aka: The terrors of our house. 
(they chase each other A LOT)
aka: Stink Nugget & Sophie Dopey
 aka (& their actual names):
Piper Dog & Sophie Cat
to pose for some type of Christmas card photo today.

Sounds easy enough.
But with the way these two just 
 it may prove to be a bit more 
difficult then I'd like.
Wish me luck!
Hmmm ... 
maybe we will just send Happy New Year cards instead?

Purchase of the day.

I've been debating purchasing Benetint  lip & cheek stain
from Benefit Cosmetics for several months now...
If it actually works it is supposed to deliver a 
natural, rosy & flush look on your cheeks 
Plus it can be used as a lip stain to boot.
Sounds good to me - I'll let you know how it goes! 

Christmas at our place.

This is what Christmas looks like at our place...
Sadly I'm allergic to real trees so here are some close-ups of our fakey...

Stockings hung by the tv with care...
Sometimes I even put in the Merry Yule Log dvd

Yay for homemade cranberry & popcorn garland- Tedious but FUN

I *heart* these lil' guys... & I sure wouldn't mind some more.

Once upon a time my momma gave me this guy for Christmas...

Last but not least - the mini Spode Christmas tree in our bedroom...

Mmm I *heart* Christmas. I wish the season was just a bit longer...


It has just been one of those days... 
Ok, one of those weeks...
Ok, one of those months...
 Ok, who am I kidding - several months...

 Where I'm feeling like I need to do more in the creative sense. 
I need to CREATE!
 I very much want to start an Etsy shop. 
But making and selling what? 
Ever feel like you have too many ideas?

Well maybe this article will end up being the kick in the bum I need.
 Only time will tell...

Latest Obsession...

Hooray for knitted, ribbed or just plain cute skull caps  

They are my latest obsession. 
I can honestly say I have worn one everyday for the past 4 days...
They are after all ridiculously cute & an excellent excuse to not blowdry bangs or really do your hair for that matter.
Plus the husband says I look cute & they keep my ears warm... what's not to love?

Here are some I'd love to find under the Christmas tree...

A chunky knit by hand hat from JCrew 

"Mr. Red Hat" handmade by my lovely friend Chaucee
