All I want for Christmas.....

Dear person who controls the weather (I guess that'd be God, right?),
While I am not normally a complainer, and I usually love the warmer temperatures, the constant shift in temperatures in mid-December is no fun. While Saturday morning, I woke up to snow, ice and road closings, today, I woke up to sweating, steam, and running in shorts and a t-shirt. It was H-O-T! Like 70 degrees hot at 6am! It is so hard to get into the holiday spirit when you are enjoying your Christmas Tree with the air conditioner on and an iced chai instead of nice hot chocolate! Please send the cold weather back at least until the Christmas season is over! Please?


Well, now that I got that outta the way, I will tell you about last night! I sat down to watch the Biggest Loser Finale and I thought I would work on a few crafts while I was sitting there doing nothing. My grandmother mentioned she wanted one of those wreaths I made a while ago, and I made some ornaments that I found on Kelly's blog for some Christmas presents. It was fun. Since E is all the way around the world and a phone call is about $400 a minute, and we are on whole different schedules with the time, we don't get to talk in the evenings like we are used to, so it is weird having to be so quiet. I mean I talk to Scout, but he doesn't talk back much. Anyway, The Biggest Loser Finale was great! I was most surprised about Rebecca! I didn't even know who she was until she started acting silly like she did on the show! But, if that isn't motivation to work out, I don't know what is? Besides the fact that Danny, Shae and Daniel are said to have added 15-20 years onto their lives! That is CRAZY! It was a great finale and I am glad I did crafts while I watched it instead of eating this time! (I usually always snack during it and I feel so bad). I think I enjoyed watching it better sans food! Well, it is Wednesday! I am SO ready for the week to be over with! Not only will E be back, but the year is almost over and I am ready for that!! New Year's will be the first time I have really been able to "get away" all year long! It has been a busy year and the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 is fast approaching! Anyway, that is another post for another day! Happy Wednesday!

Pictures of my creativeness: (wreath and ornaments)


  1. Hi Becky!
    Oh and by the way...Roll Tide!!!!

  5. I was really surprise by Rebecca too! She is great! I love your craft projects that wreath is beautiful

  6. Have you tried using Skype to talk to E? It's free, all if you have to do is download it to your computer. I use to use it all the time when my friend was overseas
