Cute Video for the Weekend!

Another fun & cute video that my dad showed me . . .


My Little Helpers!

My little helpers! I don't know what I would do without them (except get my wrapping done a lot faster)! And they just make it so much more fun (and frustrating)! But really. It is fun (for a couple of minutes until they will not stop climbing in the bags, laying on the wrapping paper that I have rolled out to cut, chasing the scissors as I cut the paper, finding their toys, and dragging them out, and ripping the feathers out of them, . . . but then . . they give you those cute little kitty eyes and you can't help but laugh and love them even more)!


Fav So Far . . . . .

So I'm not THAT impressed with So You Think You Can Dance this year. Still good and fun to watch, but 2 seasons ago was my favorite (w/Chelsie, Mark, Katee, Joshua, and Twitch).

I think one reason is they are using weirddddddddddddd songs this season and songs that aren't popular. 2 seasons ago that's all they used were songs that were hits (Duffy - Mercy, Jordin Sparks/Chris Brown - No Air, Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love)!

Whatcha Say (sung by Jason DeRulo) danced by Ashleigh & Jakob is definitely my favorite so far this season. . . .

What dance is your favorite from past seasons and from this season?


Kitties Getting Ready for Christmas . .

Took out some of our Christmas stuff . . . .
Nina picked the blanket.
Jinx picked the wrapping paper.

Even they are getting excited too! :-)


Kitty on Cop

Daddy showed me this . . .

It is one of the cutest things I have ever seen. Kitty just wants to cuddle!


Shane sent this beautiful rainbow picture to me on my phone this morning!

Pop The Champagne!

Well, they accepted our offer!!! So as long as everything goes well, we will have our own home again!

I guess several people called to make appointments to see the house, but the realtor & sellers are going to cancel them all because they were happy with our offer! :-)

Sooooooooooo excited!! It just seems unreal to me.

I had to wait to tell everyone because Shane was in a dentist appointment too . . . it was killing me!

And I won't see Shane until late tonight, so we can't even celebrate!




Ummm . . . . so we just put an offer on a house.

I am scared. excited. nervous. anxious. freaking out. smiling. high fiving (lame, i know . . but we are really excited about it). praying.

We should know tomorrow what the verdict is . . . .


Decapitating a Dead Buck in the Road?!

Ok. Seriously. There are some messed. up. people.

This weekend my hubby & his brother were driving home from Erie going south on 79 (past the 90 exits) and saw a guy in the median (WARNING:: gross and totes inapprops) . . . cutting off the head of a dead buck that got hit by a car! Ooops. . I already said that in the title. . . oh well!


What is wrong with that guy?! I mean I understand (but completely disagree with) cutting off the head of a buck that you hunted to prove how awesome you are by killing an innocent animal . . . but cutting off the head of a deer that you did not even skillfully kill? What the heck are you going to do with it? Someone please help me understand the reasoning behind this . . . ???

p.s. - I was lucky enough to see the decapitated deer this morning. You really can't miss it.



So seriously. GLEE is my favorite show EVER. It's like the show I have been waiting for my entire life. It has humor, drama, romance, excitment, suspense, and AWESOME singing!!! I have never been so eager to watch a show and find myself listening to the songs from the show over and over.

Here is a song from one of the most recent episodes (Lea Michele "Rachel Berry" has one of the BEST voices I have ever heard). . . if only I could sing half as good as her!! Or even a quarter!!

If you have not seen it, you need to at least try it out.

FOX. Wednesdays. 9PM.


Sorry Boss, I'm Leaving . . .

Or at least that is what I would like to say to him today. . . it's too nice out to be at work!

Have you been outside yet?! If not. Stop. Seriously. You need to stop everything you are doing and take a quick walk outside. It is absolutely beautiful out! And it's November 9th!! Go Erie!

There is just something about that warm, beautiful weather that makes you feel completely energized (or maybe it's because I am finally feeling better after a 2 week ugly sickness . . blah)! I want to go run 5 miles, bike around the peninsula, and sit under a tree by the lake to read some more of Twilight.

Yes. . .I am a little slow, but I just started reading the Twilight Saga and I'm already hooked (only 70 pages into it)!

For all of this though, I will have to wait until the work day is over . . . hope the weather can hold out until then!


Dirtiest Soccer Player

My hubby Shane sent this to me and said, "be glad you don't have to play against her". . . . so totally right! Can you imagine?!

So I forgot to blog about it, but on Halloween, it was my official 1 year anniversary of being back in Erie from Virginia! Yay!

Shane's anniversary won't be until November 14th. He had to work a little longer in VA so we had to live with out each other for two weeks (waayyy too long. Sniff, sniff!)!

We are still facing the effects of selling our house at the bottom of the market (when we bought it at the very tippy top), but we are trudging through and praying lots and hoping that one day this will all be behind us.

But besides that and coming home to Erie's worst winter ever and worst summer ever (I swear it wasn't our fault!), we are definitely enjoying being home! We still feel like we don't see our friends and family as much as we would like to, but it's a lot better than it was!

We both enjoy our jobs (for the most part), and today marks my 1 year anniversary at my job! Woo-hoo! I made it a year!! And hopefully will be there for a LOT longer! So appreciative and blessed to have the job I do!

Looking forward to what Erie has in store for us in the years to come!
