A few X-Mas photos.

I didn't really  get very many photos of Christmas this year. Here are the ones I did get. :)

We were going to make breakfast and open gifts but we decided to go out and eat at Harlows.

Waking Jason up to open presents on Christmas eve.

I taught Jason how to play Mexican train.

I made my parents some matching jammies for Christmas this year. (Well, I didn't make them make them but I did puff paint their names "Mama" and "Papa" on the front!)

Playing UNO with my Mom and Sister Christmas Eve night. I had a few too many Christmas cocktails...

From Jason. Not Santa.

Sleepy heads.

Dingleberry dog.

My Dad and his dog Sable.

So all week Jason was like, "I can't wait for you to open your gift! You're gunna cry." And I'm like, hmmm.... I wonder what it could be! A ring! A ring! A promise ring? An engagement ring??? OMG. I couldn't wait. I was psyched for Christmas eve.!!
 Christmas eve is here.... I wait patiently for Jason to wake up. I make coffee as loud as I can. He wakes up. Pours a cup of coffee. It's gift time. HELL YEAH! He opens his gifts first. I got him these super expensive Titlist Pro golf balls and some super gamer MW3 Turtle Beach headphones hes been wanting. And some shoes. He's stoked. I am happy to make him happy. :) Now its my turn. I open the gifts in the order he tells me to. I got some bath soaps, a loofa (that fell apart as soon as I used it..) and my favorite perfume.  And here it is, the last one. This is it!!!! I open it carefully. It's in a larger box than a ring would be in but maybe he's just trying to trick me.... I pull the wrapping paper off. Tear open the box. Unfold the tissue paper inside... and it's.... a metal rose. That he welded himself at work. A metal rose that he has made for his mother and other girlfriends in the past.... He's waiting for tears. I have none. I smile wide though. Because it is very sweet. But it ain't no ring. So I just hug him very hard and thank him. He's so stoked on it. I am just surprised.


Oh and my parents got me the same exact perfume. So I'm stocked up haha.
Hope your Christmas kicked ass.

My Christmas wish list!

Hello there! My eyes flew open at 6:45 a.m. today; tossing and turning and not able to fall back asleep. I got up, walked the Poppy, made this new coffee I just bought from Cartel and realized that I haven't spent any time on my blog lately. A little post is in order. So Christmas is this weekend and I find it appropriate to post a teeny Christmas wish list.
-This Christmas I am not asking for......much. I would like a new perfume. My choice would be Dior hypnotic Poison. It smells sooooo darn good.

-Another Christmas wish I would like would be the ability to stay in bed for a little longer in the morning during this winter for some snuggling and smooching with Jason. Ever since we moved into this place I am waking up before the sun rises to take Poppy out on a walk and after that I get all motivated to clean and tidy up or read blogs, make coffee and take a shower etc..  All I want is to stay in bed for one more hour.  Maybe two..

-And lastly I was kiiiinda, sort of, just a liiiitle tiny bit hoping that Jason would get me a ring. Now it doesn't have to be an engagement ring. I would love to even have a "promise ring" to wear. To look down everyday and see him. :) Oh but I am not the kind of girl to tell him that. I want it to be a surprise! So I am being quiet, patient and cool on the outside but pacing and wondering and hoping and daydreaming on the inside. And if none of my gifts this year end up being a ring, I'll be okay with that too. Because I have him. And I am so happy with that.

Bummed thoughts...

Sometimes I wish I would've never pointed out how fake I think she is...

Lazy Weekend.

 This weekend was a lazy inside weekend for both Jason and me. I didn't put a drop of make-up on the entire time. We spent most of the time staying inside watching movies, playing video games and board games. I took the Poppy bird to the dog park a few times and had to give her a bath when we came home because she was rippin' and tearin' thru the park and the mud was-a-flyin'. We slept in as long as we could until Poppy would wake us up (and that was until about 7:30-8 a.m.). It was a really great weekend. Jason is my best friend and he is so good to me. I love my little family. I work all week long and can't wait to do some Christmas shopping next weekend! I wanna see some gifts under that tree!!

Christmas movie OVERLOAD!!!

I am currently in the middle of a mass Christmas and Holiday themed movie download party. Guests are me and a bottle of wine (which is not very good..). The list I have jotted down so far goes as follows:
1. The Holiday
2. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
3. It's a Wonderful Life
4. Home Alone
5. Scrooged
6. Love Actually (My favorite. Makes me cry every time..)
7. Muppet Christmas Carol
8. The Santa Clause
9. The Grinch (Jim Carrey is the BEST in this version.)

Man I am freakin' PSYCHED! I can't wait to make Jason bake cookies and watch these with me.   <3

Any suggestions?      Anyone?   Anyone?   ....

Phoenix Winters

It's starting to get just a leeetle bit colder around here in the Phoenix area so I am finding myself more often staying inside downloading way more movies, throwing on comfy sweaties and curling up on the couch with the pooch and the Man.

Christmas time is here and I'm feelin' it this year for sure. It's me and Jasons first X-Mas and we put up the tree the day I came back from my parents after Thanksgiving (which was AWESOME). We would've rather done a real tree but instead had to use the ancient faux one my parents gave us. It's the same one my family has used on X-Mas since my sister and I were tiny kiddos. It's decorated with white and colored lights and a TON of "old world" ornaments given to the family from my Grandmother Marlyn. Jason and I dorkishly listened to Holiday music as we decorated our tree. I really enjoyed it.

Anyways, it's starting to get chilly and I came across this blog post by gala darling about how to keep fabulous when it's frigid outside. And I know it doesn't necessarily get too frigid here in Arizona, but I will be definitely using some of these tips to stay warm, happy and fabulous this winter. I am also going to incorporate a TON of baking delicious goodies too.   :)

Purple Lipstick??

(Photo source: TUMBLR )

I've been looking and looking everywhere for the right shade of purple lippy to try. The closest I've gotten is with MAC #AB0 "rebel" in Satin. It's got a reddish pink tint to it but it's darker and very acceptable for fall and winter.

I really like the suggestions Beauty Department gave here with Purple lipstick.

On being true...


World English Dictionary

integrity (ɪnˈtɛɡrɪtɪ) [Click for IPA pronunciation guide]
1. adherence to moral principles; honesty
2. the quality of being unimpaired; soundness

Integrity is one of my favorite words. I believe myself to have learned and keep great integrity. I have great honesty in all of my relationships. I tell it how it is and expect you to do the same. But I find it hard to do so when a person I am trying to confront and/or be honest with only feels attacked when given a talking to. I therefore am tired of this and giving up on all that cannot hold an honest relationship with me and others they "hold dear to their heart". I will not sit and listen to negative words and shit talking and pretend not to give a shit when I see said person posting pictures of them hanging out with the one they were talking crap about. I feel like I can no longer trust that person and believe that they aren't doing the same thing to me. I think this is pretty plain and simple. Makes me incredibly sad but what can I do? I am tired of excuses and lies. Only looking forward and hoping for better times in the future.  c:  And if this isn't even the case then come on ova and let's talk!

And with that said, I invite all old and new friends who enjoy having great times and genuine relationships. YAY!
