I am addicted to Shiny sparkly things...

I've been a wee bit crazy with the boxing day sales.
But I'm done now.
I'm not leaving this house for fear of spending $$$

A little trip was taken to Sally today. I found some delicious polish. The pinkish hue is called "Aloha" Love it!
I have been loving how some of the Hollywood ladies do their lips. Jennifer Lopez, Angelina and Kim all wear nude lips with expressive eye makeup and I gotta say, I love it! Found me a nice shade today. Smells and feels amazing and cost about $4.
I feel FAMOUS!
In my mind, I am so very very cool now.
My love got the drills he wanted thanks to our amazing family who donated Home Depot cards for Christmas. He is pretty stoked. Now to get him to put up my shelves and do my decorating bidding. He said they need to charge for like 2 days. But I think he's trying to buy time.
Daddy has a perfect bald head to drive a car on. I love watching them play. It is seriously my favorite thing to do in this whole world.

I got jipped.
I've always wanted a Guess purse.
It's just that I change my purses too often to pay full price for one. So I check the Thrifts every now and again. I've seen them at Value Village before, but never one I really loved.
Today I see this one:
I was so stoked I bought it without a second glance or thought.
Get home to realize it's a knockoff. And I so would've noticed that had I actually taken the time to look at it. But as is my usual habit...I just loose my mind when I see happy shiny things in stores...
Well, sometimes anyway :)

Cute baby vs. scary baby

My sweet girl with her ponies. Sweet natured as always, she rarely fights her hairdos. My girl is a princess and I have high hopes that she will really be a girly girl so that I can have so much fun with her always and forever!
As I type she is fighting her nap with all her might but I am ignoring her!
THIS is NOT the Jesus I know and love. Not as all.
Not one bit.
The Jesus I know and love is very real and mighty to save. He is absolutely not creepy and he is my hero. He has brought me through more than I could ever type down and I'm SURE he will continue walking with me through all that he has planned for me.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas parties, pajamas, baking and lipstick!

We had Ray's Christmas party on Friday night at the Twisted Cork.
IT.WAS.FANTASTIC.
Lots of laughs, amazing food, gifts, drinks and more drinks. Arlene, the lady that holds the business together, was delightful! My favorite work party to date!
Ray hates all my pajamas. I think he is jealous of how warm and comfy I am.
He says he thinks I look like a bum.
Here are my new Smart Set jammies that make me feel a little like spider woman.
I heart flannel.
My friend Megan made me decorate sugar cookies for hours and them put them outside to get snowed on.
FAIL!
You can't tell in this picture..
but I am on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick. So far I've got runny stick, sticky stick, unspreadable stick and teeth reddening stick. NOT glamorous at all.
But I keep looking because red lipstick is life changing!

I want to be able to let go

How sweet is this!
I totally would use this. Not only would I use it for all my fabulous parties, but I would also keep it full of ice water with oranges and limes all summer long. I LOVE it!
Christmas toes.
I enjoyed painting these Christmas toes.
Christmas is sort of annoying me today. I am annoyed at myself actually. I'm annoyed that I am letting the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season get to me. I am annoyed that I am letting it stress me out.
For instance, I am awaiting a few items to come in the mail so that I can send my parcels out. Any other time of year this would not bother me, but right now it's super annoying. I even ordered with plenty of time to get here, be wrapped, and sent out.
It's so not even a big deal though, so why do I let it bother me?
I am supposed to be enjoying the season of giving...and receiving of course.
I love all the parties.
I love reading Elliott books about Jesus and attempting to show my 1 year old the true meaning of Christmas.
I enjoy baking and sharing the baking with those that I love.
I love listening to Christmas music, and usually I love shopping for gifts...as long as I don't let the commercialism get to me.
I want to be able to let go. Breath in and then breath out the stress. I don't need it or want it.

The other thing that's been eating at me as of late is trying to get disability payments. I'm sure that is not what they are called but I am disabled at the moment and I qualify for payments so what's the freakin issue???
I'll tell you the freakin issue: picky ICBC workers, Difficult ex boss, an EI office that does not answer their phone ever, and a lawyer who I think may forget I exist.
My legs hurt people! Can't you just freakin make it happen??? It's less than a grand a month, it's not like this esthetician made much money!!! Argh!!!

See...
Breath IN....
Blow out all that negativity.
It will come together...
maybe not today...
But is most definitely will.

Making Memories

Every year I say I'm going to go to the Festival of Trees, and every year I don't. This year I thought it would be something fun to do with Miss Mouse and the grammas. So we made an evening of it.
This giant bear came by to talk to E and give her a sticker. She was quite surprised by him but she didn't cry. My girl is so curious and brave. I love those qualities about her. She has no fear and it makes her scardy cat mama so very proud.
The guy in the background was so impressed that my tiny girl didn't cry but the 3 year old boy at the table screamed like a girl when the bear went to give him a sticker!
She was so excited by oh so many sites at the Festival. Taking her out of the buggy may have been a mistake, but she had so much fun. It was like a giant winter wonderland to her.

We fed her some really gross overpriced pizza while she wore the toque that cousin Kaelen knit for her birthday. She liked the pizza, wish I could say the same for the toque!
Elliott with her gorgeous gramma.
Gramma Arlis was asking for trouble putting her down in the gift shop. But she had so much fun in there! Everything was sparkly!
I think I'll take her again next year. Maybe make a tradition of it. Next year my legs won't hurt so bad so we can linger longer and really take it all in.
My wonderful husband bought me a new dinning room set after the other new dining room set proved to be crap. Thankfully Costco has an awesome return policy so we didn't get stuck with the crappy one. This one is from the Brick and seats 8. The leaf folds up inside and the seats are comfy and padded for our sore legs and my sore backside. It has 6 chairs and one long bench. I love the decorating possibilities this opens up for me :) I get it on Friday.
My sweet mouse just always wants to be where I am. So she lays on the floor in the kitchen while I make dinner and alternates between yelling at me and mooching food. So fun she is :)
