Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... not!!!!

So I woke up this morning to find the whole ground covered in white. I don't mind the snow but its getting to the point where they are shutting down the roads. Here are some pics of the snow.

I'm in the Christmas mood but not in the cleaning mood...

I love decorating for Christmas. I love all the colors, glitter, shine, and just about everything to do with Christmas but in order for me to decorate I have to clean my house. Many of you know me well and know that I'm not a clean freak. I consider myself the type who picks up and cleans the things that need to get done or the type that will hurry up and make my house presentable for guest that come over. Most of you don't know but Tony has been working everyday from 9am to almost 10pm (somedays... if I'm lucky he'll come home around 9:20pm). His assistant that we thought was going to be awesome decided to quit right after we got back from vacation in October. So Tony hasn't really had a day off for a long time. I feel really bad for him and I know I should be a good wife and have the house clean and dinner on the table by the time he gets home. No excuses but I have one... I work so hard at my job that by the time I get off work I don't feel like cleaning up or cooking. I sometimes feel like a terrible wife but I just can't get in the mood for cleaning up or organizing. We've lived in our house for over a year now. I'm not saying its terrible cause its not and people that stop by and see it don't think its messy at all. Granted they only stay downstairs where the living room and kitchen is. Tony and I don't spend much time down there. The terrible thing is now that I think about it... we've lived in our house for more then a year and I still have not decorated it!!!! I just need to pay my mother to come and make it pretty.
Well back to why I'm writing this entry... So as all of you probably celebrated Thanksgiving was Thursday. Tony and I had his cousin Alex and Tony friend and coworker AJ come over for dinner. We made our very first turkey ever and it turned out wonderful. We didn't eat until 6 and ended up having to go to the store to buy tupperware to put the extras away... there was a ton of extras. So we didn't get home until really late... Tony and I didn't want to clean the dishes. The next day was Black Friday... the worse day in the world if you work retail. Tony and I were exhausted and again didn't want to do the dishes. Sat same thing... we both worked all day and were to lazy. Then there was Sunday... Tony and I have decided that on Sundays we don't do any chores or anything that would take away from the spirit being in our home. So as you guessed it we yet again didn't do the dishes. So here it is Monday 9:00 PM... the kitchen is starting to smell... I'm actually surprised that it hadn't started smelling a couple days ago. I can't stand it anymore so I am doing the dishes. Here is a picture of some of the dishes that we had sitting on our counter. I'm sorry its just gross!!!!These weren't even all of them. Before I took this picture I have a ton more. They are in the dishwasher.

Anyways... now for the fun part. As I said before I love Christmas and decorating. While I was trying to do the dishes I pulled out some things for my kitchen.I'm excited to finish the rest later. Well off to bed.

Going to the dark side...

I've always liked the dark fingernails but have always been afraid to try it. I finally broke down and bought Black fingernail polish. Am I crazy? Yes I am but I love how it looks. Is it hard to believe that I actually feel sexy wearing it. It makes me feel mysterious... lol!!!!.

Here is what is looks like... Sexy huh?

My life on July 11, 2010

Outside my window... Neighbors working on their yard.

I am thinking... That the pain in my stomach needs to go away so I feel better.

I am thankful for... Blogs... I know random but I love reading them. I've found some really cool ones also. Ones that have lots of sweepstakes, free stuff, and coupons. They are all lifesavers.

I am wearing.... Comfy PJ bottoms and a sweater... I have the chills so I'm really cold even though its like 100 degrees outside.
I am creating... A ring and scrapbook for work
I am going... To relax and try and feel better. I'm also going to plan my week and figure out everything I need to get done before this weekend.

I am reading... The better homes and gardens mag for this month.

I am hearing... DIY channel on the TV. I'm watching Yard Crashers. I would love for that guy to come to my backyard and make it look good.

On my mind... Feeling better.
From the kitchen... My mom was here this last week and help decorate and little of my kitchen. We now have decorations above the cabinets. Thanks Mom!!!!!

The rest of the week... Monday I am off. I have a eye appointment and then play practice. Tuesday through Thursday work and play practice. Friday and Saturday in Idaho falls for wedding stuff. Sunday is Tony's birthday and he wants to go fishing so we'll probably do that.

Pondering these words... "Girls are like phones. We love to be held, talked too but if you press the wrong button you'll be disconnected! "

The Poor House....

This summer has for sure taken its toll on us. We are officially in the poor house. We now have to use our savings account because the money is just not coming in lately. Oh sad... I don't even know where all of our money has gone. We are now going to have to turn to the Lord. Everything is in his hands now. It is going to be rough for a little while but hopefully things will start to turn around. Tony and I have come up with a plan... We are going to be doing a lot more fishing and hanging out at home. So I'm sorry if I have to tell you know if you invite me to do anything that cost money. We are going to try and save everything we've got. If you can please pray that things will start to get better. Thanks for listening.

My Life on July 4, 2010

K... So I got this from a friends blog and love it. She does it once a week. I thought it was a great Idea so I'm a blog copier. Thanks Angie!!!!!

Outside my window... Sunny, clear, no clouds in the sky.

I am thinking... that I need to clean my house. My mom and sisters are coming today and it is trashed.

I am thankful for... My hubby... even though I feel sometimes I don't show I am. He is always there for me and listening. He will take me to movies that he has no desire to see but because it makes me happy he will go and see it.

I am wearing.... A fuzzy bathrobe. Lol... I haven't gotten dressed yet. I'm being lazy.

I am creating... well... in my craft room I have two flower headbands that I started and a picture frame.

I am going... Go shower, get ready for the day, go clean up my house, go to the store and get some food for my family, stop by a bbq with my husband.

I am reading... The Ariana Triliogy... It is amazing.

I am hearing... The TV... Tony left it on the Golf Channel before he left for work. I just haven't changed the channel.

On my mind... Things that always make me happy!

From the kitchen... I've decided to redo my kitchen... well start my kitchen. I'm decorating it in a French Bistro style. Light colors with Black Cast Iron accents. We'll see how it turns out.

The rest of the week... Work and Play rehearsals... If you haven't heard I'm in the musical Bye Bye Birdie. The show will open July 29th and go until August 7th.

Pondering these words... " You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life."
Albert Camus
