Welcome to the holiday season!!

Yes, it's that time of year again!  Time to frantically get ready for the holidays.  Traffic, crazy people, the quest to buy the most perfect gift for those special people in your life....... ah the holidays!  How I miss when the holidays meant time with the family, playing, decorating, wrapping presents, opening presents and fantastic food!  Where did all that go wrong?  Oh yea, when I became an adult.... but I'll try to make the best out of it like I do every year.  Now is the time when I crunch to make as many gifts for as many people as I can.  The only thing is that I have no idea what to make for everyone this year.....  Last year I made snuggies, I guess this year i'll finish the snuggies that I didn't get a chance to make last year, Crocheting takes to long, so I will have to limit what I crochet.  I have some idea what I want to make for certian people, and I guess for the rest I'll just hit the stores.  I have 2 monkeys, a quilt, 4 amigurumi dolls, a sock monkey and that's what I can think of off the top of my head.  Not sure what else I'll get to make for everyone else.  So Happy Holidays, and check out my crafty blog because I'm sure I'll be updating that one more than this one.

OH, and on a different note, I have no officially lost 1 whole pants size!  It's so nice to have to rely on gravity to get my fat ass in my pants.  They go on so nicely, as a reward, I got myself some new undies!!  And cute ones to!  Nothing keeps you motivated like buying cute unmentionables!!  And I also redyed my hair black.  I really like it!  And everyone else likes it to!  I can't believe how many compliments I got on how good it looks on me.  My boss said it makes my eyes pop even more.  I'm also thinking of getting some green contacts.  I love green eyes, they're so pretty! 
Well, that's it for now, Happy Monday!!!

Beautful day!

I can't beleive how nice today and yesterday turned out!! Yesterday was 70, not sure what today is.  I got the garden taken care of yesterday, filled up one whole yard debri bin.  Thankfully I have 2 of them!  I had some projects that I had to do today so I haven't been able to get out to the front and take care of the leaves, but I'm done with the inside things that I needed to do so, I'm off to do the leaves.  The leaves are so pretty, but such a pain in the neck to rake up!  That's what I hate most about fall, besides the colder weather.  It makes me sad that it's getting colder outside. :(  Rumor has it that we're going to have a wet winter as well.
Oh, and update on my room, sadly I'm still not done with it.  I've been looking for a box that has some of my stuff in it that I want to put in my room.  I can't find that stuff at the moment.  I need to look in the pantry in the garage, and hopefully it will be in there.
Well, time to go out in the yard and rake up the leaves!
