Project 365-43

Whew.... Christmas week!  Was everyone else running around frantic & frazzled?  Here's what my week looked like...

Sunday - Vincent Christmas .... For the 4th year now, we've made it tradition to go to Ricky's sister the Sunday before Christmas to get together with Ricky's family. Christmas Eve & Christmas Day is so hectic for everyone, so it makes it really nice for us to take time together on a much easier, breathable day.  Ricky's sister has the most gorgeous home & Martha Stewart has NOTHING on the way she decorates.  Just the little touches that Pam does make the biggest differences...

Monday - Now THAT'S a Monday.... I walk in my job bright & early thinking it was going to be a easy week - after all, its Christmas week.  Well, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you'll see it was ANYTHING but easy.  Our system crashed & EVERYTHING back to April had to be re-entered.  It wasnt finished on Monday by the way (we're STILL working on it) - & then my mailbox was fuller then I've seen it in a long time... it was the definition of "Monday"

Tuesday - What happens when you bite your back.... Sydney has a spot on her back that she keeps biting.  She had bitten it so bad that it was starting to bleed & it was getting DEEP.  Every time we'd yell at her to stop biting, she would... for 2 minutes... then start back at it again.  We used to have one of those cones that you put around their heads, but are clueless to where its at.  So we did the next best thing - put a shirt on her where she couldnt get to it... & it really worked.  She even slept in it & was all cuddled up in her shirt when we woke up... It's like a Doggie Snuggie!!!!

Wednesday - I'm too sexy for this cowl!!!! .... We met our awesome friends, the Neals, for dinner & to celebrate Christmas.  It's always so much fun when we get together... Lynn made me this gorgeous, amaizng cowl.  I'm telling you - I am in love with it.  Carly tried it on & I told her to give me a sexy look.  She said, "Why? So it can be on your Project 365?" - Well, there you go.  Its the perfect picture for my Project 365 for Wednesday...we had some great laughs at Carly's "sexy"

Thursday - Grocery = INSANE!!!!! .... Oh my goodness... I thought going to the grocery the day before Thanksgiving was bad?  NO WAY - didnt even compare to this grocery shopping spree.  It was insane.  It took me about an hour & a half to get through - I got bumped by carts an unmentionable number of times - I literally got stuck in an aisle & couldnt get in the "flow" & sat in one spot for 15 minutes.  It was a good thing I stopped & got some Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate beforehand to get me through...

Friday - Waiting for Santa...Yes, it was Ricky's Birthday... & I didnt get any pictures.  We were up shopping from 7:30 am until 4:30... & I didnt get any pictures.  I finished wrapping every present we had... & I didnt get any pictures.  I ran over & saw my friends, Joe & Erica & precious baby Emily for a little bit... & I didnt get any pictures.  Our friends, Ryan & Chasity came over to have Christmas together... & I forgot pictures...but at the end of the night, when everything was calming down, I remembered a picture. & I love it... it's just calm... the waiting for Christmas Day...

Saturday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!!!!!! ... enough said...

Oh - I've got tons more pictures to post of our Christmas Day with family... & the goodies Santa brought me! ;)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas week...cant wait to see your pictures...

  1. love your pics, and especially love the cowl!!
    Hope doggy's back gets rocks that pretty shirt, too!

  2. I thought it said I'm Too Sexy for this COW - LOL. I couldn't wait to see what you were up to now :)

    I'm glad you had a nice Christmas. It's been great getting to know you this year.

  3. I have to laugh with The Bug, because I thought it said COW at first too!!!

    Can't wait to see your Christmas pictures!!!

  4. It looks like a great week. I'm so excited to participate in Project 365 this upcoming year. I just bought myself an inexpensive, great-on-sale-deal, point & shoot camera to get ready!


  5. My seven year old wanted to have a birthday cake for Jesus too! So for the first year ever, we had a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. She asked if we could make it an annual tradition and we told her yes!

    Looks like you had a great Christmas week, although I think I may have pulled my hair out waiting like that. Good thing you had a treat to keep you company!

  6. I'll admit it...I read COW the first time around too!

    Is that how a cowl is actually worn? I have never been sure what to do with one.

    I love that peaceful moment on Christmas Eve.

    I see that you had some extra Starbucks in your groceries too ;-)

  7. Your blog brings me so much joy! Thanks for sharing your life with us and being real!!

    You are a treasure!

  8. Glad you had a chance to relax.. I hope to do that when I can..

  9. You were a busy lady!!
    Love the cowl and I thought it said cow at first too.
    I'm glad you caught the "calming down" picure. Those are some of my favorite moments!
    Have a Happy New Year!

  10. Lovely photos this week! Especially like the "waiting" picture :)

    We also had the tradition of baking a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas with our kids. Yours is much prettier than ours ever was though!

    Have a very Happy New Year!!!
