It's been a hectic weekend/week and I haven't had a chance to update as much as I should! I just wanted to take a second and wish everyone a Happy New Year! I can't wait for all 2009 has in store for us! (Including a post on the bridal shower and my very first give away!)

(which I don't even like that much) I thought I would trek back up to the third floor be warm and catch up with the blogging world! Last week was crazy busy with last minute errands and one night was devoted entirely to "baking" these:
If you call making Pillsbury ready to make cookies baking. There was just not enough time this year! In my defense I did roll the sugar cookies in cinnamon and sugar to turn them into snicker doodles. I also added the toffee and almond Symphony bar to the center of those Duncan Hines Brownies. Also on that plate were oatmeal chocolate chip, christmas chocolate chip cookies, and some Dove Chocolate...Please excuse the wrapping because I arranged and wrapped them at 1:00 AM and then woke up again at 6:45 AM to add in the brownies that had been too hot to place in the arrangement before.
Christmas was pretty quiet this year but I did get some of this yummy perfume :)
I'm debating getting the Wii fit with one of the gift cards I got does anyone have any thoughts on it as in is it good/average/bad?
We also visited Santa! (This was taken the weekend before at a friends Christmas party but was too cute not to share!)
So I hope all of you had a great Christmas and are looking forward to celebrating a new year where perhaps my car will love me!

Although I want the Kelly Green one but I couldn't find a picture of it online!
and these boots!
Don't they look SO cozy?
P.S. I am eagerly awaiting a package in the mail a package with something that makes me want to jump and squeal with joy and look at HOW pretty they are! Really the things that make me happy are so minimal! Anyhow my 100th post is coming and I think I will do a give away involving what is coming in my package so stay tuned!

Then the girl grew up and she moved to another place far far away, one that was frequented by snow quite often and it still seemed magical at first...Until the snow wouldn't stop it kept falling and falling! The girl prepared for a fun day off like always except here despite the snow that was rapidly falling to the amoundts of 2 and 3 feet there were no closings! In fact you had to DIG the car out and STILL attend CLASS and WORK nevermind drive in the blistery mess??
What?? How was this possible??
The snow was starting to lose it's powers over the girl and it didn't seem so magical anymore :( Even though it was still pretty to look at she didn't like walking to class in it nor did she like driving in it and what was worse is it wouldn't go away! Unlike the snow from before it stuck around for weeks and weeks making a sloshy, icy slippery mess everywhere. Not only that but MONTHS later when it was finally starting to get warm again when she would go to the mall she would find giant mountains of this!

That's right DIRTY SNOW, DISGUSTING DIRTY SNOW that the girl thought had finally gone away. That is how the girl decided she does NOT LOVE snow anymore tragic isn't it?

It's absolutely delicious!
I am NOT a tea drinker I don't really like the taste of it unless it's heavily brewed Indian Chai with all the yummy spices!

What is your pick me up during the day? Do you like something warm or do you head straight for the vending machine for a soda?
P.S. How FUNNY was Heidi after a few shots of patron? "Loco en la cabeza Senor" "Ariba Ariba" what WAS that?? Also JB's "you guys should put up some signs" CLASSIC!

Saturday night I ran some Olive Oil through hair and let it stay over night. My hair is so soft and definitely much less frizzy now. Olive Oil and Coconut Oil are both GREAT conditioners for hair. I have also hear of some using eggs and beer? Have any of you tried this if so how does it work? Do you have other hair secrets? Please share because I am always trying to find something that works with my semi curly, semi frizzy hair. I also snuck in a hair cut on Sunday so now my hair feels MUCH bouncier then before....It had gotten SO long!
In other news even though I never watch How I met your Mother because it comes on at the same time as Gossip Girl I can't help but laugh at these pictures. It looks like it will be a pretty funny episode and Heidi and Spencer won't be the only ones guest starring this episode will also include Kim Kardashian and Kendra Wilkinson....

I find this one so funny! After I am brought in Jay and I are supposed to exchange flower garlands but as you can see I am delicately perched on the shoulders of my uncles so Jay would have a hard time putting his on me...I don't know HOW he did it but his best man somehow mustered some crazy HULK energy and lifted Jay up all alone! Jay is a big guy so I have NO idea how he did it but i love that it was captured in this picture.

These are my weakness and when I put the bag in my basket I knew I shouldn't do it because I could probably eat them all in one day! They are just SO YUMMY! I had some with my lunch yesterday and then put them away in my drawer. This morning I forgot I even had them till I opened the drawer to get something and now since 9:15 this morning all I want is Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato chips! What is your junk food weakness?? Please tell me I'm not the only one that has an affinity for Cheddar and Sour Cream!!

What's your favorite piece of your husbands wardrobe to steal?
P.S. Our Gym attendance has been NOT so stellar lately and although I always want to go I am lazy to leave the house once I get home. I am thinking of trying out this DVD have any of you tried it? If so is it as good as it seems?

I have one of these from my wedding and I loved it! I can't decide however since mine is pretty much new if it would be fun to pass along the same bag as a family tradition or just buy a new one. I wouldn't want anyone to feel as if I was being cheap I just think it might be a fun tradition. Thoughts?
I have also put together a list of goodies for her to open that she might need on her trip....I need at least 15 items and some of these are a stretch do you guys have any ideas? I'd love the input!
*Flip Flops- to keep you from stepping in cow poop
*Shawl- To keep you warm when he is not there….
*Framed Picture of the couple- For when you actually miss him
*Mosquito Spray (Husband Repellent)- To keep away all the marriage proposals in India
*Sleep Mask- For Sweet dreams
*Marriage for Idiots- You might as well get in some research while you are apart
*VS Gift Card- You know what this is for
*Good Headphones?- To drown out all the honking horns and the vegetable seller in the morning.
*Phone Card- For when talking to him seems like more fun then shopping
*Dramamine- Because sometimes he is boring and at least if you fall asleep you can blame it on the medicine
*Sunglasses- Because in India people will look at you like you are a movie star might as well act like one
*Hair ties- After 2 days on a plane your hair won’t be pretty!
*Face Wipes-Again after 2 days on a plane…..
*Glasses Case- To keep your glasses safe when you don’t want to look at him anymore…
I added some funny stuff to put on a little note on top of each package....let me know what you guys think!

The Lash Stash : I spent a long time trying to find the perfect mascara, this is a perfect way to get to try out a bunch and not feel bad for wasting money on something you'll only use once
