I hope everyone has a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Well it's Friday again so time for some more Confessions!  Don't forget to check out the link up over at Blonde Ambition

1.  I confess that Bobby and I are getting married on January 21st!

part deux of this confession is...that we are getting married January 21st, 2012.  YES as in NEXT. MONTH.

I love planning weddings and big events as much as the next girl (probably a little more to be honest) but for some reason it just feels right to not wait this one out.  Bobby and I have had many discussions on the topic and we keep coming to the same conclusion; Why wait?  For us this just feels right.  So we are going to have a very small, intimate gathering at our new house and seal our union with our closest family and friends.  There will be no bridal party, few traditions and lots of love.  And we can't wait :)

2. I confess that I think The Office is not good anymore now that Steve Carell is gone.  The Office has long been my absolute favorite show and I think it had a good, long run that consisted of GENIUS comedy. I really gave it a fighting chance without Micheal Scott; but I can't do it anymore.  And that breaks my heart.  On the other hand the old episodes NEVER get old and since I own the entire collection I can watch anytime! 

3. I confess that I don't want this costume for my future daughter; i want it for ME.

Oh, how Pinteresting!

Yay!  It's Wednesday!  Time for the Oh, how Pinteresting link up over at the vintage apple; GO CHECK THEM OUT!

Friday, December 2, 2011


Today I am going to try something new and join Leslie over at A Blonde Ambition for her Confessional Linkup.  Go check her out! 

And here are,  my confessions (well some of them.)

1. I confess that Bobby and I decided it was easier to shove the Christmas Tree in the hatchback of my car (filling the ENTIRE car all the way up to the front passenger seat) than to tie it up top like we are supposed to. 

Yeah this confession is a multi-parter

1. (A) I confess that this is the exact car I drive and Bobby is over six feet tall and had to fit inside too along with the tree.

1. (B) I confess that if anyone wants to sit in my car this month it smells like Christmas Spirit!

1. (C) I confess that I found out Dust Busters work REALLY well picking up pine needles by the thousands from car interiors!

1. (D) I confess my brothers and our fathers are probably dismayed by our "un-handiness" when it comes to "tree-tying-to-car-ness" but we made it work.

2. I confess that i obviously (see confession 1. (D)) use quotations to create words too often. 

3. I confess that I almost peed my pants when my best friend sent me this in an email today:

Omg I just realized I didn’t put the g in season’s greetings! Now my cards are gonna say seasons greetins lol! Oh well.

4. I confess that I think Christmas in Dixie is one of the top two worst Christmas Carols ever. 

5. I confess that my Vet tells me every single appointment that my poor Audrey needs a dental but I dont sign her up for one because I can't afford it.  And that makes me feel like a bad mommy.

6. I confess that I am too scared to wear my new engagment ring in the shower or bathtub so I take it off first every single time.

There are no words...

I know ive mentioned this before on my blog, but I'm going to say it again.  I'm the LUCKIEST girl in the world. 

Last night Bobby asked me to marry him (I said Yes!)

He completely caught me off guard and it was the most perfect moment ever. 

He had me so focused on my mystery trip It never occured to me he would boy did good :)

I'm going to spend all day today looking at dresses, and colors and all that wedding frufru and Im going to love every second of it.

I've learned quickly that its almost impossible to take a good, clear picture of an engagement ring.  The first picture is the closest I have been able to get (and it doesnt even come close to showing the beauty of the ring.)  The second is a picture from the site where the ring came from (its exactly the same.)

Oh and our trip is a cruise to the Bahamas!  I'm on happy overload!

Bubbly Tuesday

Remember THIS !?

Well today is the day!  Tonight I find out where we are going!  I don't know how I am going to make it through this day!  The excitement is killing me!!!

Also how perfect is it that the big reveal is on Tuesday so I can use it for my Bubbly Tuesday link up over at
Classic and Bubbly!  Hop on over and check out what everyone is doing for themselves or others today to make Tuesday just a little bit easier!

I'm clueless where this trip will lead me...could I end up here?

Or maybe here?

Which would be awesome because then I would have a good reason to buy these!

Could it be a cruise??? Oh la la!

New York City?

To be honest I could be here and I would be ecstatic...

Oh what a bubbly Tuesday it will be for me! 

And I will be sure to share as soon as I can!

It's officially Christmas-time!

Thanksgiving is finally behind us and that means the official start to the Christmas Season has begun! Christmas is my favorite time of year so I am always looking forward to Nov.25th so I can start celebrating without that "its not even Thanksgiving and she is already getting ready for Christmas!" backlash. 

Since moving into my new house I have been having major struggles trying to unpack and decorate to my liking.  So, as an added bonus this year Christmas decorations are alloting me a little breathing room on my unpacking and interior design.  For the next month i can fill the holes with Christmas cheer and wait for inspiration to hit me on more permanent decoration. 

Here are a view glimpses of what I have so far:

Small tree in the front window that can be seen lit from the road.

My mantle

Mantle close up

This little guy is my pride and joy so far.  I picked him up for $4 at Kohls last weekend for my mantle and dressed him up for Xmas with a little bow and some angel wings. 

I still have the main event to go (the real Christmas tree for the den area) but since its been in the 70's here lately I'm holding off for a few days on that.  I refuse to buy my Christmas tree when I don't need a jacket.

Have you started your Holiday decorating?

Work It Wednesday

We had our office Thanksgiving pot luck today and I just finished; i can't breathe.  Oh how I always manage to overstuff myself on the holidays.  Since tomorrow is the main event I decided to pick a full belly friendly article for my Work it Wednesday post.  (Dont forget to hop over to Good Life and link up!)

Leggings!  This is going to be the best holiday season ever now that leggings are so on trend!  The fashion gods have shined down on us this Holiday season!  Here are three ways to style these fabulous stretch pants that give you all the room you need to eat another piece of pie.
