marriage makes you practical...

or is it age? either way..i'm becoming more practical. it's kinda gross and scary, but it makes more sense.

exhibit a: a fake christmas tree

what is the point? it's fake, and sits in a box in your unfinished basement. it has no smell, and no holiday spirit. and no pine needles that get stuck in the carpet.

a real tree: holiday fragrance so pleasant it brings a tear to your eye. you look forward to freezing as you pick it out amidst the other exuberant shoppers who exude yuletide cheer. this is what christmas is about....

do you see the practical and the impractical here? or is it really about sentiments?

either way....we bought a fake tree last night...pre lit and all. because, it's more affordable, i can set it up when i want without fear of it dying early, i don't have to water it, and when Jack walks by it, i don't have to fear that tail tapping the limbs even in the slightest and pine needles flying everywhere....it just makes more sense....

but i still find myself just a tad bit disappointed. don't tell my husband :)

christmas decorating has officially started:

(this tiny thing is not the tree mentioned in this blog post, give me some credit =) )

vegas baby

yeah, it's true.

I'm going to vegas next week. so weird.

I'm going for a conference, which is lame, but i'm sure we can blow some of it off :)

plus they have a 3 story H&M.

a 3 story H&M people!!!!!!

I told my coworker (she is going with me), and we agreed that our first goal is to shop. 2nd goal is to eat, and 3rd goal is to work. kinda my life plan. jk
but not really.

and i'm back!

wow, it's been awhile. too long. sorry lee :)

Vacation was perfect, like seriously, a second honeymoon, or better than our honeymoon, it was THAT good. The Lord just doesn't do things partially, he really goes all out.

Here are a couples of fun pics from our trip:

first class :)

Welcome :)

Infinity Pool

Lots of Food, and MEAT (mexico me is a meat eater)

Fun trips to small islands

lots of staring at this :)

Anniversary nights out...yes this is my whoomp there it is dress...

basically, it was the most relaxing and best 10 days and i spent it with with my love.

Then..we were home and BUSY again!

Helped throw the Bff a baby shower for her lil nugget:

I had to buy a jean jacket because, mommy loves her jean jacket, she has had it and worn it since the 7th grade :)

Then it was Thanksgiving weekend! my sister in law and i baked and watched the parade, then headed to my mom's. It was a quieter tgiving day, but still very good. Then we shopped....oh yes we did.
midnight till 330, then 830-1230 (exhaustion did occur)...but it is tradition, and Leanne was in town! Oh lee, i love you so.
We hosted the inlaws the rest of the weekend, and we just relaxed, ate, and watched movies.
it was a very blessed weekend :)


that's all for now!

absent for good reason...

because i haven't felt like blogging. great reason huh?

day 3 and feeling great :) we have been so pampered and relaxed. tonight we plan on just ordering room service and watching movies...of course there goes one fun dress out the window, buuuut..sometimes you just want to stay in your robe and sip wine while blogging, and your husband reading next to you...

Day 1-got up sooooo early to catch our flight to DFW, our flight was delayed so we missed our flight to mex. we were sad, but worked on getting onto another flight, stand by. we waited two hours, and didn't get seats...so we headed to another flight which left in another hours...we were actually pretty ok attitude wise, we kinda just laughed it off. When we received our boarding passes, it said "business class". Jon was like, oh hey, we have business class..i forgot to tell you..i was like, WHAT?? are you kidding?? he was like, is that good?? uh..yep!
We had two huge leather chairs spacious enough for me to sit indian style, blankets for warmth, snacks, cocktails, a movie, and hot towels to refresh ourselves with...yall it was perfect. and worth the wait. we got to mex, found our ride, and arrived to LUXURY. we were greeted at the door with chilled coconut milk (soooooo good). We settled into our room, unpacked, and went in search of food. we ended up running into the chef of their pizza restaurant and he said he would bring us his specialties. omg, it was soooo good. i'm gonna sound redundant about this food, but it is seriously the best food i've ever eaten. After we polished off the pizzas we walked down to the beach and walked along the shore. we stood for a long time and let the waves crash against our legs and talked. i think i will remember that moment forever.

day 2 consisted of, eating, laying, eating, swimming, laying, eating.goat cheese cappuccino soup. sleep. haha (that soup changed my life)

day 3 we got up and went down to breakfast, ate, then headed to the pool, we sat their for a few hours, then walked about a mile away to another resort for lunch(free exchange privileges) we ate lunch there, then we wandered around. we played pool (i'm now a pool player..for reals)..and it was so fun. then we headed back to our resort and swam for awhile in the pool. We came up to get ready to go out to an asian restaurant, but decided...laying around was a better option..
now..off to order room service!

it's here!! it's here!!!

one more sleep till vacation...i can hardly stand it!

i'm packed..well almost :)

everything is washed and put up (in a basket)

our flight is actually at 630 and not 530...my bad, so now we don't have to wake up at 300 but at 400. ewww

but i've got a hot plane outfit..which i'm sure you figured after hearing me talk about my travel wears before.. it's a long black maxi dress, and a light weight sheer sweater over it, so that when we get to 80 degree weather i can strip off that sweater and be ready to go :)

i wish i could bring all my friends with me, buuuuut..i need this time with my jonathan..in the worst way. worst. so here we come Mexico, and 10 days of fun in the sun :)

loving and loathing tuesday


Honeycrisp Apples: these things are just simply wonderful...so very wonderful. i cannot eat a slice, with a little peanut butter, without thinking of my old roomie Cara (this girl right here)
when we lived together, every night consisted of us eating anything we could find, smothered in pb, and stalking people on fb...oh the memories. miss you boo.

it's November 1st: yay! love november :) always have..which is why i got married in November! It was the most beautiful day! Seriously, it was 75 degrees out!

jeggings: because lately i've felt fat. it cannot be because i have been eating more than i should. definitely not. it also cannot be from all of the pumpkin flavored goodies i cannot stop baking. definitely not.

pumpkin flavored goodies: i cannot stop baking these things.

Beiber: his christmas album, is simply fantastic. haters hate on.

8 days till vacation: omg. so epic. i have so much to do before then! like lose 5 lbs immediately. be toner than a cartridge(no? not sure if that worked or not), and be tanner than my cherokee friend cara (see honeycrisp). she is so stupidly tan all the time.


how dirty my dog is. seriously. he is dingy as all get out. we just haven't had time to take him to get groomed. and i'm definitely loathing the dirty looks they will give me when i bring my nappy jack in. sorry groomers, i'm just so sorry.

in 5 days my bff Kelly (yes i have like 6 bff's) is supposed to hear where she is getting into school for her dietitian internship...it could be very far from here *sniff sniff*. the internship will last like a year or something awful like that. kelly, who is gonna come watch bones while being nestled in between rachel and i???

pinterest: ok, lets be honest. i love pinterest. but i hate it because of how wonderful it is.

how i still have like 8 more days till vacation. what?? that's like so far away! i need to go tomorrow!

ok. i gotta work now.
