It's After Christmas...

And yet another 20 days has passed. My Christmas was, although busy, was fantastic and fun. I got many fantastic gifts, for which I am thankful; even though my favorite part is picking and choosing for every member of Josh and I's families. I love walking into a store, going back on your memory and trying to think of all the things that person likes or enjoys doing. (:

Our festivities began on December 23rd, with my Dad's celebration/get-together thingy. We ate dinner, opened gifts, and had desert...BIRTHDAY CAKE! We always reading from the Bible and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. That's my favorite part. This year, I participated in the singing, reading, and gift opening; but not the eating...well, I had some bread. But, I don't know if that counts. Long story, short: I got the stomach flu. Not like, Oh I Puked Twice Now I Think I'm Okay, stomach flu. I had the, I'm Puking Up Anything & Everything In My Stomach Plus Some, stomach flu...intense stomach pains included. Needless to say, I ended up in the hospital at 4am on Friday (THE 23rd). Mostly because of the pain. They gave me anti-vomit and pain killing meds as well as fluid through an IV. I came home and slept from 6a-3p. I was tired. Josh got lots of gift cards, and I got new TOMS to add to my growing collection.

Theen, we drove to Joshua's moms. Spent the night. Went to ANOTHER family party. Stayed way too late, came home and went to sleep! Good thing we hit the sack early, because Megan woke us up at 6:30am! Oh, my dear five-year-old; we are still SO tired from last night. Anyway, we opened our gifts (New down comforter for me. Remote control helicopter thing for Joshua.) and I went back to sleep. Remember! I'm recovering from the flu! My body is tired and I still have no appetite.
Around one o'clock on Christmas Day, we left his moms and came back here to celebrate with his Dad's side of the family. We hit Christmas traffic. All you people driving from Orange County to LA...YOU CRAZY! Pretty much, lots of cute babies and crazy (in a good way!) family members, my momma included. Josh got a camel pack, neck guard, and chest protecter for when he rides. I got a handmade Saint's (like the NFL team) throw blanket. Together, from ALL Christmases we ended up with 5 resturant gift cards, mostly Red Robin (Yuuuumm! Our favorite place!) and pairs of movie tickets.

I gave Joshua a scrapbook of our first year together. It's unfinished because "as long as we're together it will always be a work in progress" (: There are blank pages at the back. I also wrote on a coffee mug for him to take to work. Its bangin'. He also got a MM t-shirt in his stocking.
From him, I got new Uggs *celebration dance goes here*, and a total of three new MM shirts; one was in my stocking. T'was a good Christmas. <3

Christmas at his dad's house. We're both wearing new MM shirts. (:

That Christmas party that we stayed at too late? This was taken, there. 
Don't ask me about my New Year's Resolutions. I haven't decided.


First Post in 20 Days!

Holy cow, I can't believe I haven't posted in that long.
New things?

1. It's almost christmas (: less than 20 days! Joshua and I decided on a crayon wallet for his sister as well, we decided on one with her first initial on it. Its Hello Kitty with a big yellow M on it. She'll love it.
Joshua's gift is on hold at the moment, as I was working at my dads house and they're having a party this weekend so they need the table. I get to resume next week. I also bought him a little somethin'-somethin' extra too. I couldn't help it (thank you, Pinterest). I also have to fill his stocking for less than $15.

2. My final is on Tuesday. I'm shitting balls, no lie. Its worth 200 points. I also have a 50 point paper due the same day.

3. I'm making an effort to get healthy and fit. I have a hard time staying motivated but I'm determined this time. I want to be toned. I went to the gym yesterday and today for over an hour each time. Tomorrow CJ and I will be taking a trip to the park to play and I will be hitting the gym after work, if get off at a decent time. Even after two days, Josh has already said he needs to start working out too. I'm excited. I want this to be a journey we take together.



that excited me.
1. All thing "country". Rodeos, bullriding, country music, line dancing, horses and livestock, etc. Yepp, I totally don't belong in Orange County, CA.
2. Organization. Okay, i'll totally admit that my room is a disaster. There is a stack of papers that I need to file away as well as a stack of books I need to either mail back to Chegg or sell to a used book store. But you all know about my Erin Condren purchase, which I should be receiving ANY day now. I'm so excited! I've also put a closet organizer on my Christmas list.
3. All thing fun-fetti! Seriously. Best cake/cookie/cupcake flavor EVER. I could eat them until my belly aches.
4. Baby/toddler stuff. With all the cool carseats. strollers and new gadgets out there I can't get enough. I also have a Graco Nautilus (carseat), Veggie Tales CDs, and a Carters diaper bag (Giraffe print) on my "Christmas List That's Not for Me!" list...


Monday Blurbs

- I think I just became addicted to Etsy. Like seriously. Everything is SO creative and awesome! Every child in my life will be receiving crayon wallets for Christmas this year, including my monkeys. They're genius!! I will review them when I do so.

-There needs to be relationship rules, like in general, for everyone. I was at the laundromat last night and some guy was complaining and being an asshole about having to HELP fold his own laundry. His girlfriend? She wanted to cry. I could see it in her face. I wanted to say something to her boyfriend/ husband, about how he better learn to appreciate the things she does for him. Then call him a douche bag and walk away. But I refrained.

-My Erin Condren planner should be shipped sometime this week, their website says approximately Friday.  That means I really hope it will be at my door step on Monday, because its traveling distance is only like forty miles. I can't wait for it to get here! (:

-I have a field trip on Friday. It's lame and I really don't want to go. But I have to, for my class. I could be working and making money to spend on Christmas gifts. I also kinda started Joshua's christmas present, but I still feel frazzled about it. He's excited about it (:



Christmas Time is Here

Today, all whilst trying to patiently wait for my Erin Condren (check her stuff out, here) planner to be shipped, I have been planning the holiday season. As of right now I know the following things...our plans for Thanksgiving, what I want, what I'm making for Joshua, what I would like to get for various people in our families. I also know the dates and times of various parties that we need to attend.
One thing I'm thankful for; that Joshua reads slowly and that I can speed read (: I left my Stickies app open on my computer with my to-do list on it...he started reading it. Then, I noticed and covered my screen. QUICK STATUS. This all happened in an urgent form because, on that to-do list, is the ordering of the supplies I need to make his gift. Everything is from a VERY specific website. He would've known and I would have been disappointed. SO, thank God for my fast reading skills.
One thing I realized today, men don't plan ahead. I was trying to ask Joshua what he wanted to get a few people, including both his brothers, for Christmas. His reaction: I dunno, I don't even know what I'm gonna get for people. Then I came to the rescue. Me (something along the lines of): I've thought about it. How about you just help pay for stuff and before I buy anything I'll make sure you like it, too. Him: Okay. Sounds good.
**I am happy with this reaction. I like the giving part of Christmas because I like to pick out things I think people will like. It's my favorite part. <3**


On A Longer Note...

The new Footloose movie? AMAZING! Kids, I'm not even kidding. We're talking about-to-piss-my-pants-because-I-need-to-pee-but-don't-wanna amazing. Julianne Hough, Kenny Wormwald, and Miles Teller...match made in movie heaven. Absolute favorite character is Willard, he's absolutely hilarious!
"Boner killer."
"Hotter than socks on a rooster."

Thats all I'm gunna tell you. Because you need to go see it, like right now. Like get out of bed, put some clothes on, grab twenty bucks and GO.
Even Joshua liked it. We were the only ones in the theater and laughs our asses off almost the entire time. He told me afterwards that he felt like dancing, even though he didnt know how. So now I'm making him go to IncaHoots soon (:


You're Welcome.

One of my favorite covers, EVER. Better than the original, in my opinion.


Made My Day.

I took this, this morning.
They were walking into school and she told him, he had to hold her hand because they we're in the street. (:
I love them. They're on my list of favorites.
