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.

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! "

This is the best buy team from Relay for life. Thank you everyone for your help.

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."
A picture to share...
Went and saw this movie the other day. Was the best one out of all three.

This is Tony trying to pull out a dead tree for firewood. Lol... it was raining the whole time. It took him an hour just to get the fire started. It was fun though to spend some relaxing time with Tony. Its been a while since we were able to do that. Here are some other pictures of the area that we went to.
The other thing that we've been working on lately is our yard. It was really bad. Weeds has high as my waist.Here is some of the process of what we did...Our new lawn mower!!!!After they were pulled!!!!
Tony and I have been golfing a lot lately also... Don't mind what I look like... Not very attractive. Here are some pics...
The other thing I started this summer was a herb garden and I also planted Gerber daisies. Here is how its going so far. I planted Parsley, Oregano, Basil.

So on top of that today my sweet husband got me a Mothers day gift. I know I don't have any kids but he was just being a sweetheart. He bought me a DSLR Camera. I am so excited to actually use it and take some pictures. I am so grateful to have him in my life. I have the best hubby ever.

So I don't think I have mentioned this on here at all but for Best Buy I'm now in charge of doing all the community service projects for the store. Right now we are going an event on March 17. It is a wonderful event for a great cause. Junior Achievement is a organization that helps teach kids skills that they will need when they grow up but showing them ways with financing to running a business to everyday events. So to help raise money I'm asking for donations for this cause. If you would like to help me out but giving a pledge please let me know. I am only asking for $12 from who ever would like to donate. They event that we are doing in called a Bowl-a-thon. This is where we get the opportunity to bowl and raise even more money for this charity.
The really cool thing that Best Buy does is sets up a store for this kids to run and purchase things at. We give them some money and split them up. Half the kids have to run the store and the other half get to spend the money and manage their money. Then they switch. Its a great thing because we're not just telling them but we're actually giving them hands on experience. So please help me raise some money for them so we can teach more kids every year. Thank you!!!!!

This is what was on the bed when you followed the trail to the bedroom.
This was what was on the couch when you followed the trail to the living room. I'm am so grateful to have in my life. Its these kind of moments that lets me still know that he still loves me. Not that I don't know that everyday. But he doesn't spoil me very often but when he does its a complete surprise. He is such a great guy. He is my best friend and my everything. I love him and I'm glad that he is mine forever.

Anyways... about my bedroom. Lol!!!! This is the King size bed that my husband got... if it looks familiar it is. We decided that we didn't want to have to replace the whole set so we bought the same bed only one size bigger. I love our new bedding set though. Tony actually picked it out.
So here is my new dresser. I actually like it a lot. I have a lot more drawers with this one. So now I have a bigger bed that makes my bedroom feel like a luxery hotel room. I just now need to decorate it and get some curtains up. I just keep telling myself "In time" I just need to be patient and I'll be able to get my house in order. I'm just the type who wants it to be done right away. Oh well ...

So I started a new blog. Its called Frenchy's Crafts. Its www.frenchyscrafts.blogspot.com My goal is to show people how to do crafts. I thought I was going to do it once a day but I'm thinking once a week will be good. Not only is there going to be crafts but there is also going to be contests, things people can buy, and my favorite recipes. I just hope everyone will like it and that it will jump start a future business. I would love to open a store or a web business. We'll see how it goes first. I'll do my first craft or blog on it tomorrow. Its my day off... we'll see how it works out. Lol...
Well off to spend some time with my hubby. More later....

That same year is also my 10 year High School Reunion. That makes me feel so old. So my goal before the next year is to lose 40 pounds, get my teeth fixed, and hopefully look and feel better. My husband says that I look great and I don't need to do anything to myself but for me I feel like I'm ready for a change. I've been doing the Biggest Loser workout for the Wii. It is kicking my butt but its actually working. I recommend it for everyone. It always makes me feel fantastic after I do a workout plus it has recipes and a calorie counter. Well worth buying.
Well this is another long blog... Lol. As soon as I either find my camera charger or buy a new camera I'll be able to post some more pics on here. Until then your stuck with my boring typing. Until tomorrow... take care and I hope all is well
We got a new computer finally. I'm excited about it. We finally settled on getting a laptop, even though Tony didn't want one. He really likes desktops but I needed something for when I start school. Not sure when that will be but hopefully in the next year or so. I really need to go back so that I feel like I'm actually doing something with my life. My thought is either I'm going to have a baby (which is not happening any time soon, I'm still having health problems) or at least go back to school and get my teaching degree.
Some updates that I haven't mentioned:
-I won a PS3 at work... Its been a wonderful actually watching blurays. Not really sure how we watched regular movies once we watched an actual bluray on our tv. Amazing!!!!!!
-My brother Brian is on leave in Guam. I keep telling him its more like a vacation then work.
-Tony went to Vegas last week for Golf tournaments. I payed for him to go for Christmas. The poor guy was sick the whole time. I felt so bad for him. He said that he would golf all day and then at night go to the hotel and sleep. He finally got over whatever bug he had a couple days ago.
Sorry I'm pretty boring. We really didn't do anything today.

On the outside now there is some black shutters that they added for us. Its three bedroom, two and a half bath. Plenty of space for us right now. It feels fantastic not having to pay rent now.
My craft room... I love the color Orange now so I decided to paint my craft room orange with white and yellow as accent colors. Plus it matches all of my disney stuff too. I'm a kid still.
Better picture of the color.
Our Christmas tree... we decided not to do a lot this year just cause we still have a lot to do with the house. We also thought that we would put it upstairs cause we don't have any windows facing the street downstairs. I think it turned out great.
My hubby spoiled me this year for Christmas. If you can't tell I actually started crying while opening this one. I've wanted a Cricut for a while but he also got me a special pink one. I'm such a wimp.
Oh so these next pictures are of our nephew and our nieces. This one is of our stinkin' cute nephew Nicholas Taylor Elkins. He was born in July. He looks so much like my brother. I've got to see him twice so far. He lives so far away so I can't spoil him as much as I would like too.
This little girl is our niece Alekksa Kent Sampson. Both of her parents are good friends of ours and they don't have any siblings so we've adopted her as our own.
This little one isn't so little anymore... she just turned 1 in December. This is Danica Aldridge. This Tony's sister Tina's little girl. She is probably one of the happiest babies I've ever seen. She doesn't cry about anything.And this little one is Alyssa Aldrige... Danica's older sister. She is stinkin' adorable. We went up there about a couple weeks ago and I babysat her. When her mom came to get her she started screaming that she didn't want to go with her that she wanted to stay with aunt mana. It was a huge change because a month before she was afraid of both Tony and I. Got to love little kids. She is turning 3 in Feb. I love them to death. They are all so precious and I'm so blessed to have them in my life even if they are all far away.
