Are they real...or are they fake?

Ours is totally real.
{and yes, it totally looks like it is dying in this picture. Just another reason I need a new camera.. hint, hint}

Now if I could only have one for each room,
or at least have the budget to buy new decorations each Christmas.

Instead, I get to add a couple new ornaments each year.

The newest addition..

Thank you Walmart.

Oh and BTW..
The Cougars' were totally fake.

We're easily entertained..

Can I just express my love for Netflix? I seriously love it. Especially now that we can just watch movies through our Wii. I think it's a curse at the same time though, since we watch the most random movies ever. No really, the most random. I call them classics, but you may think otherwise. Here are a few that we have watched this past month...

I can't believe this movie really was a thriller.
I honestly remember being completely freaked out by it.

"Rocky loves Emily... Rocky loves Emily"

This movie totally reminds me of growing up with my cousins.
I was always totally bugged that there wasn't an awesome girl ninja.

Surfing on top of a van to the Beach Boys?

Now and Then has to be one of my favorites. Mainly because it totally reminds me of the 6th grade, and how I hoped that me and my group of friends would stay just as close. Even though we didn't have a cool tree house, we totally did a seance (sp?) at Nikki's birthday party. Good thing we really didn't know what we were doing at the age of 12.

What makes all of this even better is that Jon watched all of these with me, and gave me the weirdest look when I would laugh out loud at probably the dumbest parts. I know he secretly enjoyed them. Oh, and how do I know? He wanted to watch Tremors II the next day.

Yep, it's that time.
Jon has already started watching Elf.
Yesterday would make it the second time.
Sunday would have been the first.
It's kind of a daily thing..

I love that I married someone that gets just as excited as I do about the Holidays.

Cougar Time.

and my high school prey.

It's what fun is..

or so they say..

For our latest work team activity,
we decided to spend the day at Lagoon.
I thought Peer Pressure was supposed to end in Jr. High..

I was totally wrong.
Co-workers can sucker you into anything.
Even if you truly believe you are going to die.

Jonny lame.

This guy is in Italy for 8 days.
Wives weren't invited.
So you guessed it..
I'm sitting at home,
facebook and blog stalking,
watching way too much MTV,
and totally bored out of my mind.

Please come home soon husband.
I miss you.

Tell me something..

Why did she get all of tall, skinny, and good looking genes?

Itching to Design..

Lately I have been feeling a little depressed because I haven't been able to design as much lately as I would like.
Instead I have been frying my brain at work in my new position,
which doesn't use one creative bone in me.

I don't know if this is just me needing to start a new little project for our little humble abode..
or what??

I have been thinking of purchasing a sewing machine here in the near future,
even though I don't have the slightest idea of where to even begin,
let alone how to thread a needle.

I have also been imagining fun little art pieces that I could create to hang on my walls.

But more than anything..
I just want to design.

Too bad I am stuck in this apartment for two more years..
and unfortunately clients aren't lining up at my door begging for my design expertise.

I guess I will just enjoy others imaginative minds for now.

Let's just go ahead and discuss my love for John Mayer.
Actually, let me re-phrase that...
Let's just go ahead and discuss both mine and Jon's love for John Mayer.

Yeah you could say we listen to him every time we are in the car.
I'll admit it.
Jon was actually the one that got me obsessed.
I blame him.

I have always liked his music, but that was about it.
That was until we went to his concert last week.
Let's just say he is amazing!
No really, AMAZING!
He is so talented, and incredible on the guitar.
And I'm pretty sure he winked at me.
How did I see him wink all the way from the lawn?
Just trust me, he totally winked at me.

{John Mayer's newest #1 fans}

{Kella & Colten}

{The man himself}

The truth is...
I think Jon had bigger butterflies for him than I did.

24 in PC.

Jon decided to plan a surprise for my big 24.
I typically love surprises,
but I also like to have everything planned out.
{I really think I'm a little OCD when it comes to planning, its that bad}

if you can imagine, it was driving me nuts that Jon wouldn't give me any idea of what we would be doing to celebrate my birthday.He told me to be ready by 12:15pm, and then the adventure was going to begin.
We got in the car and drove..
and drove..

Jon wasn't going to spill the beans about anything.

He then started saying things that would throw me off a little.

"You are going to die laughing"
"You're going to be a little scared"
"Hahaha.. I can't wait to see you expression"
"I can't wait to see how nervous you are going to be"

At this point I was freaking out! I was telling Jon that I wasn't going to do anything that I didn't want to do, which made Jon just laugh harder. I was no longer enjoying the suspense, and only became more and more anxious.

We then arrived to PC,
parked the car,
and started walking.

I couldn't help myself, I just kept looking around waiting for someone to jump out and attack me. It's probably a good thing I'm not normally overly paranoid, or I really would need to be put into a straight jacket.

We then walked into a little mexican restaurant called "Baja Cantina", and waiting for my arrival was my cute little family.

S U R P R I S E!!

Jon had set up an entire day for us to spend in PC with my family. Not that my family lives far away or anything, but its always fun when we get together, and Jon knows how much I love spending time with them.

The Birthday Celebration started off with us stuffing our faces with some good grub.
After, we went and did the Alpine Slide & Coaster.
We then finished the day with some good old shopping.
Oh how I love the PC Outlets.

{I was so sunburned that my eyes were even puffy. Good look, I know}

{I didn't realize I could go any faster, so I was kind of holding up the line.}

Jon had planned the BEST birthday.. and he knew exactly how I would have wanted to spend it!

Love me some Ruche.

I really need one of these adorable necklaces from Ruche.
They are just too charming to pass up.

two years..

two years ago {yesterday} was the
biggest & BEST decision I have ever made.
I still don't know how I convinced him to spend eternity with me,
but I'm so happy that I did!

I know that this is sooo cliche to say..
but I truly have the greatest husband in the world!

Happy Birthday to this cute boy!!
I love you.
{CLUE #4: Bzzzzz... Bzzzzz}

Truth be told..

If Smart cars weren't bad enough,
this guy decided to add wood paneling to his.

You really thought that was a good addition?
Please tell me this is just a figment of my imagination,
and this isn't coming back in style.
{even though i'm not very convinced it was ever in style}
Hopefully I don't get an ear full of how great the Smart car really is,
because you're really not going to convince me otherwise.

Cupcakes are a delight.

I made these for a "Hawaiian" themed Baby Shower.

{Recipe Requested}

Total: 1 hour

1 pkg. white cake mix
1 c. fat free milk
1 pkg. (4 serving size) Jell-O Banana Cream Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip Lite Whipped Topping, thawed
24 small strawberries
1/2 c. blueberries

Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Spoon evenly into 24 paper-lined medium muffin cups. Bake as directed on package. Cool 10 min.; remove from pans to wire racks, cool completely.

Pour milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping.

Spread tops of cupcakes with pudding mixture. Arrange strawberry slices on top. Fill centers with blueberries. Store in refrigerator.

{Makes 2 dozen}

They were supposed to be "tropical flowers",
but they look they would fit in at a Fourth of July event instead.

They were still a party favorite.

How could you not love them?
