My Year...Facebook Status Style

Since Thursday afternoon,
DayQuil and now Mucinex have become my drug of choice.

I have some sort of sinus cold and congestion thing going on, 
and so the hubs and I have had a pretty low key New Year's Eve
here at home...by ourselves.

I have managed to take a few pictures, but I'll save those for another post.

Until then, I'll share this.
It's a whole slew of status' I shared throughout 2011.
And come to think of it, I will even share 2010.






Happy New Year's, friends!

Christmas Cheer...in Pictures.

In some ways this year, Christmas felt low key and not super 
jam packed as it has in the past.

Saturday the hubs and I did some celebrating at my parents house
with games, and delicious food...





..while in the evening we had almost a dozen family members
retreat back to our house for some good ol' deep fried turkey
and some Cracker Barrel sides. :)


I just love this picture.
Laughter is always what happens when we all get together,
and this is proof.






If anyone has never tried chocolate gravy,
it's a must.
So very easy and so addicting.



Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Some Texas Love!

I'm so behind on my posts,
so please bare with me.

A few weeks ago I got my package from Janna...
my partner in a Ornament Exchange we participated in of Jess's.
It was so much fun, and Janna spoiled the day lights out of me!

 These are just a handful of what she sent me.


 My Texas cowboy!
 


Along with these I got an adorable snowman ornament, a cute Wintery scene hand towel,
and some snowman face tongs. So so cute!
Every time I see them, I think of Janna!
Thank you, sweet girl!
Now head on over there and check these two ladies out!

Happy Sunday, peeps!

Because I Think She's Cute...

...I take an over abundance of pictures.

Countless ones of her sleeping...
standing...
sitting...
and playing.



And I try to take some of her brother, Buck...
but he rarely will sit still long enough for me to snap a picture.


So bare with me, and stick around...
because I am that crazy dog momma.

Friday Randoms

  • I picked these treats up a few weeks ago at one of my weekly Target trips, and the puppies have seemed to thoroughly enjoy them...like they know the sound of the package.

  • I love Fridays...especially when Saturday morning consists of not having to wake up and head to work.
  • I need to start my Christmas shopping this weekend. I have to.
  • Speaking of Christmas shopping, I tell myself every time that I am not going to wait till the last minute to start shopping, and what do I do? Wait. Procrastinate. 
  • Tonight for dinner I tried something new, and easy. I found it in the frozen section at Publix, and let me just say it was so, so good. I paired it with some rice and broccoli. It burst with flavor, seriously. It's a must try.

  • I think we have a squirrel or a mouse, or heaven forbid mice, in our attic. I woke up this morning about 5:30 hearing this chewing, scratching noise coming from the corner of our ceiling. I could not go back to sleep. I'm praying it doesn't happen again tonight.
  • My hubby turns 29 on Tuesday! 
  • I spy with my little eye...Richard!!

  • I'm sleepy. And I commend you if you made it this far reading my boring little post.
 Sleep well my friends!

Three Years Ago...

...pretty much at this very moment..
the hubs and I were sitting at a booth at Cheddar's,
cutting up and laughing with my sister and her hubs, David.
We were officially husband and wife!
And how wonderful it felt to finally be Mrs. Thomas!

{the actual picture from that night in the booth}

I cannot imagine what it would be like not having him
by my side every day..
and to know just how lucky I am to have him as my husband,
that in itself makes me smile.

I love you babe...
to the moon and back 
and all the way around the sun!

Oh how I am a sucker for all things random!
