Hello 2009.
Hope everyone is out having fun with their loved ones! That's where I will be, with my two boys.

I will be back to posting normally next week. For now, I am off to enjoy the days off with my Hubster and little boy.

Look What Mama Got!

Yep!! A KitchenAid Pro Series Mixer with Bowl Lift!! Amazing!! It's even stainless steel so it matches my kitchen. It is so funny that he got me this. A couple sundays ago I was in the Kitchen pretending to be a professional baker, and it was a disaster. My hand mixer is horrible! The lowest speed on it, is the fastest speed on most other mixers. So of course I had cookie dough everywhere! Half way through the day, I threw in the towel and said that I give up! So when I saw the Hubster walk in with this on Christmas, I was shocked, but soooo happy. He told me that he hopes this inspires me to get back in the kitchen and give baking another shot. (I think he just wants more cookes!) Either way, I am stoked and I can't wait to whip him up something yummy.

The Hubster has been off for awhile so I have been away from the computer spending time with him and the little boy!

Come A Little Closer

Lately people have been asking me for the secret to my weight loss. Which is a compliment, but also makes me think, "Wow, these people must have thought I was large and in charge!" I always tell everyone that I swear by weight watchers. I know, people hate counting points, but it works for me. I write everything down that way I can see what I am eating. But my real secret, DIET COKE!! I love it. I want to find the creator of it and take him or her to Disneyland. (because it's the happiest place on earth of course!)
Growing up, the only soda we had in our house on a regular basis was Diet. So if we wanted to "sneak" a drink of soda, we had to sneak Diet. I say sneak like my parents didn't know! Like they thought little people snuck into our house at night and drank all the diet soda and ate all the cookies that were hidden in the oven. Didn't we all think our parents were dumb when we were little?
Anyways, I am not sure how Diet Coke is my weight loss secret. I think it's because when I lift that ice cold can to my lips and taste that refreshing beverage, I feel like I am cheating on my diet. Therefore I don't feel the need to cheat with bad foods. If it doesn't make since, oh well! I love it!! My butt loves it too, because I have lost 15lbs!!
I just want to tell the soda gods, Thank you!! Thank you so much for coming up with a "DIET" beverage for us people who want a little uummpphh in their diet, this 15lbs is dedicated to you!

All Done

Here is the finished product!

I put this desk together all by myself.
Pretty impressive huh?

Here are some pictures of little boy in the snow. He is like his mommy, he isn't in love with it.

He is smiling because I promised him a Banana.

Here he is mad because I didn't come through on the Banana promise.

Oh man. This pose is so GQ.

Ok seriously, he was pissed here!

And here too. He did not know how to walk in the snow. So when I placed him it, he just stood there. It was cute and funny all at the same time.

Craft Room

The Hubster and I have been redoing our office. Ok, I have been redoing our office. I painted it a chipper yellow color and took off the closet doors. I had him install shelves in the closet to make it my cute little storage place for all my scrapbooking goodies.

The Hubster also hung up my embellishment center. He is amazing when it comes to this stuff. (he is amazing period) Me, I would have just made sure it looked level and hung it. Not him, he got out his stud finder and level to make sure it was perfect. Amazing right?

I am not quite finished with the room, as you can see the shelves are empty. However the floor in the office is COVERED with all my scrapbook stuff. I have so much stuff I could open my own store. I just haven't gotten around to organizing and putting it all away.

I am also waiting for the arrival of this bad boy. I got this desk on sale at and it is now in some UPS truck waiting for me to love all over it! The delivery date says, DEC 19, which is Friday. So, if it gets here and I can sneak in an hour or two, I will post some new fabulous pictures of my Craft Space. HA, what a dorky name.

Ruined Night

After tucking my little boy into bed, I sat down on the couch to watch all my guilty pleasures that I tivo. First up, Ellen DeGeneres. Love that show! Ok, so I press play and viola, it's the obnoxious guy from channel 8 news standing out in the snow. So, I fast forward some more and still the guy from channel 8 news!! He is telling me it's breaking news. Um stupid, it's not really breaking news. It's been snowing all day and I don't think anyone needed you to help them figure that one out. (if u did, my apologizes, you're a moron.) Plus, the news is on at 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11. Did you really need to interrupt my Ellen show at 3, to tell me it's snowing outside? Did you really need to take the whole hour to tell me it's snowing outside?? See why I hate the snow!! Ok, so whatever, on to my next show. Secret Millionaire. I press play and viola, it's the news guy from channel 5. Wonderful. I fast forward a little and the little pesky guy goes away! YES!!! But wait, that's not Secret Millionaire playing, that's a COPS episode from 1987. What the?? I notice some words scrolling across the bottom telling me that because of the snow storm, they can't broadcast regular programming. Again, what the? I have heard of bad weather causing the cable to go out, but I have never heard of bad weather causing 1987 reruns to take over the TV. I am so irritated. It's crap like this that causes me to fall off the weight watchers wagon. Now, I just want to eat a bag of goldfish crackers and watch Roseanne reruns.

Snow Day

Don't wipe your eyes, you read that right. Snow Day in Vegas people. Now, I am not one of those sweet loving people who is going ga-ga for the snow. It's annoying and it's freezing. I will admit, it is pretty to look at, especially since it's Christmas time. But it was pretty two days ago, now it's just annoying. The school district here might declare tomorrow a snow day. Really? I want to call them and tell them that people back east are pointing and laughing at us. For them to declare a snow day, it takes inches and inches of snow, for us, we see four snowflakes and the whole city shuts down. It's probably because people in Vegas can't drive in the snow. Seriously. We have a hard time functioning when it's raining, you think we can drive with big white chunks flying at our cars? I am not saying I know how to drive in it, I am right there with all the other snow-morons. I did however manage to drive to Michaels. Want to know what Captain Obvious (annoying employee) said when I walked in covered in snow, she said, "Is it snowing out there?" No no sweetheart, I am just trying out white hair to see what I will look like in 30 years.

p.s. please don't email me about wanting to buy the sweet Hyundai that's in the picture, it's my dad's and I don't think he would part with his hubcaps.

No I am not dead. I just have a sick hubster and a sick little boy. On top of the Hubster not feeling good, he has been crazy busy with work. So I have very little time to get on the computer. I used to get on during nap time, but since little boy hasn't been feeling good, the naps are shorter. If I get on the computer while he is awake, it looks like a tornado ripped through our office. On top of the sickies in my house, I haven't had too much to say lately. I would usually just throw the local Michaels store under the bus, but, I haven't been in there in awhile!! (and by awhile I mean like 5 days) However, I will be going to Michaels tomorrow, so you can bet your brand new victoria secret underwear that I will have a good story for you.

Bad Santa

Took little boy to see Santa today, you would have thought I took him too the dentist. He FREAKED out. He was arching out of Santa's arm. The poor Santa guy, he was giving me the "get this kid out of my hands before I throw him where I threw all the other crying little brats," look. Why don't I have a picture of him screaming? Because the photographer lady at the Meadows Mall sucks. (yes mom, I said SUCKS!!) How come every other mom in America gets proof of the torture she put her kid through, but I get jipped? Have no fear though. I am going to another mall tomorrow. I know what you're thinking, I am an awful mom. When really I am thinking ahead. If we have another child and I get a picture of him/her/it crying on Santa's lap, then I will forever have to listen to Little Boy wonder where his picture with Santa is. Therefore, look out Santa at Fashion Show Mall, here we come.

p.s. if you don't want candy canes stuck in your fake $5 beard, don't give them to the kids BEFORE they sit on your lap. Just a thought.
Happy Holidays!

The video below is our gift to you.
Notice Hubster's face, it's priceless.
Maybe after seeing that video he will STOP making goofy faces when I am trying to take a picture of him.

One of my favorite blogs, Thrifty Decor Chick, is having a Favorite Things post for Christmas. So, I thought I would play along and list some things that are my favorites this season.

Britney Spears
She is my favorite ever.
Did you see her special last night? We all have our opions, but none of us know what it's like to live out our worst nightmares in the public eye.
Anyways, I love her and I smell a comeback!

This is my latest love! It's up their on the list of best craft tools.

Just crumble a little low fat graham cracker in there and you have heaven. And it's only 1 point on weight watchers.
