You know it's Christmas when...

Elf is on tv!!! I absolutely love this movie. I can quote every single line... My former roomies will tell you how many times I made them watch this movie. Trust me, it's A LOT!!! And I can't just pick a single part in the movie that is my favorite, because, well, the whole thing is my favorite. Ha! There's a facebook petition for Buddy the Elf to host the SNL Christmas Special. That would be hilarious!! But, back to point. Tonight I was going to try to introduce Murray to this wonderful piece of Christmas magic. I was super excited when I saw that it was going to be on tv, since my dvd player is broken (thanks to a little 21 month old chick) and I can't just pop in my dvd anytime. So, we turned on Elf and I explained to her that this would possibly be the funniest movie she ever sees. And do you know what she did? She ran and turned the tv off. Not acceptable Miss Thang. I turned it back on and told her she would LOVE it if she would just be still and watch. So she watched for about a whole of 10 minutes, then cried to go to sleep. Now here I sit watching Elf alone. Oh well. I could think of worse ways to spend a night.

Oh speaking of movies, I have thought of something I want to do on Christmas Eve with Murray from now on. You know that movie Polar Express, right? Well every year my brother and I have slept in his room on the floor until the past couple years since I've had Murray. He stayed out in the Bungalow with me and Murray. We usually watch a movie or whatever because I don't really let Ian sleep haha. So, I want us to watch Polar Express that night. It'll be a fun tradition to start, and I think Murray will love it.  I hope so at least...

Today I am thankful for our (mine and Murray's) health. It was a rough start with my sweet little girl, being so small. Then we had the issue with her kidney reflux. But, now I have an amazing healthy little girl. Even though she has a cold right now...poor little girl!

Feel Good Friday!

Oh Dave you make me laugh!

Today I am thankful my brother is coming home! Not that I'll get to see him much. Plus, my Nicole is coming home next week and I'll get to see her!! YAY!!! I love the holidays! :)

So What?

This looked like fun and I decided to join in today!


So what...  if I am crazy a little obsessed with Twight. If I want to read the books 70x, watch the movies 5874x, read the blogs, and drool over pictures, then I am going to do it! How can I not obsess over this...

So what... if I color my hair all the time I like change (when it comes to hair color). 

So what... if I look forward to Murray having a nap. It doesn't always happen, but when it does I get to shower baby-free! Hey mama's you can't tell me you don't get excited too!

So what... if I drink too much coffee! Thank you Mom for the Keurig, because it fuels my coffee need.

So what... if I LOVE celebrity gossip... Did you know that Pink is pregnant (and it's so fitting, considering she has the song "So What" lol) and that Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are getting divorced. DRAMA!!! 

So what... if I joke around too much. Would you rather me be boring? I may have a lot of jokes and stories, but if you don't want to hear them, walk away :).

So, what are you So What's?  Go to Mama Dew's blog and play along!

Also, today I am thankful that my classes are almost over! I have a speech this week, a business test this week, and then I just have about a week left! HAPPY DANCE TIME!!! I can see the finish line this semester!!!! Go me!

Friends...even 9 hours away,

Do you have those people in your life who you can't imagine not knowing them??? Think about many people came into your life and now you don't know what you would do if you hadn't met them! When I was dating my ex I got to meet quite a few amazing people who I love to death. Even though the situation with him ended badly, I am still thankful for most of what went on. ESPECIALLY meeting Mrs. Danielle! :) Honestly, she is one of a kind! I can't tell you how many times I've whined, complained, vented, laughed, joked, and obsessed about Twilight with her. She is just one of those people I have clicked with. I haven't known her longer than 6 months, but I feel like we've been friends out entire lives. I hate that she lives in 9 hours away, but that's ok... And even though we don't get to talk all the time, I know if I ever needed her she would be there to listen in a minute (and I hope she knows that I would do the same for her :)). So Danielle, you are awesome! Oh and check out her blog...she's an incredible blogger! :)

Thank You

To all those who are serving, have served, or gave everything for this country.

United States Army

United States Navy

United States Coast Guard

United States Marines

United States Air Force

I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Without you we wouldn't have the freedoms we have right now. God bless you and your families. I think I already did a post thanking the troops, but I honestly think they deserve a thank you every single day...not just a few days of the year. So today I am thankful for all those protecting us, past and present. My grandfather and 2 of my uncles are veterans, so thank you to them as well! Love you all!

Somewhat new look...

Well I was wanting a new background and I wanted it to be of owls...but I couldn't find anything!!! At least, I couldn't find anything free. I would LOVE a background made for me, but I don't want to spend $40 or more on one! But this one is cute and I made a new button. Also, did you notice the new title??? :) I told you I wanted owls. Ha. My life is a hoot. Murray has my sense of humor, so we laugh all day.

So what am I thankful for today? I am thankful for the ability to laugh. I laugh ALL THE TIME. Seriously, I do. I joke around too much a lot and I am willing to bet that it annoys some people. OH WELL. You can deal with it. :) I'm glad I can joke around in most situations!

I am dying to do a fashion show with all of Murray's cute new clothes, but I still have to get my new cord. UGHHHH!

So about that camera cord...

I was so excited when I checked the mail on Saturday and my new camera cord was there. I ran out to my house and opened the package. Beautiful! I could finally upload some pictures since I have a ton on my camera right now. I sit down and take the cord out of the package. Seriously, I was so excited. I take the little twisty tie that was holding the cord together all wrapped up. I plug the USB drive into the computer. YES! It was finally time to connect the camera. I grab the camera and lift the flap. Wait, it won't go in. WHY WON'T IT GO IN!!!!!! It is too big and it doesn't fit. Wonderful. I am so disappointed. Now, I have to get a new cord. Mega dislike. I guess the picture posts are going to have to wait a little longer.

Since I missed 5 days worth of being thankful, I'll catch up now. First, I am thankful for friends and family. This weekend we had a football party and it was so fun! Even though the Gamecocks lost, it was still fun! Second, I am thankful for the opportunity to go to school. It may not be fun, but it's worth it. Although, I have to admit that my public speaking class right now is a blast! Third, I am thankful for my church. I love it there! I was lucky enough to get to be there when Dr. Page was still there, now we have a great interim in Dr. Cloud. Even though he is leaving soon, our new paster Preacher Jimenez, is going to be awesome. Fourth, I am thankful for technology! I'm on 2 websites that I LOVE. Coastie Chicks and Gymbofriends. I may not know all these women in person, but you talk to them so much, you feel like they are some of your best friends. Plus, I really have met some of the greatest people through facebook. *TRACEY AND HILARY*. We may not talk much anymore, but I still consider them good friends! :) And fifth, I am thankful for my camera. The pictures I have are priceless and I can look back anytime and see how much my sweet little girl has grown in the past 20 months and 29 days. :)

No Camera, No Pictures

I really hate that I lose things so easily. I can't find my camera cord, so that means I can't show you any great pictures! I have Halloween pictures and pictures from Kevin's wedding and I'm going to have fashion show pictures of Murray tomorrow. I ordered a cord on the 1st, so hopefully it will be here soon! Then it's going to be picture mania!! Let's just hope I can remember all the stories to go along with the pictures.

25 DOT- Day 3

Today I am thankful for the cool weather. It felt amazing outside today! Nice and cold, just like I love it to be! Winter/Fall clothes are so much cuter too :)

25 Days of Thanksgiving- 1 & 2

Ok, so I saw on facebook a lot of my friends were posting something they were thankful for everyday until Thanksgiving. I started thinking and I was like this would be a great blog post! I have been slacking on my posts lately, so I need to start back. Since I missed yesterday, I am going to have two today.

First, I am thankful for Murray. She is the funniest, happiest, smartest child! I love to hear her laugh and see her smile. She laughs at everything! She talks all the time and I love it!

Second, since today is Election Day, I am thankful for our freedoms and our privileges we have. I am thankful we have the freedom to vote for who we want to and aren't forced to live in a country where we aren't allowed to choose.
