Wednesday... one week before CHRISTMAS! WHAT?

1. Do you believe in miracles?

Of course... I think they happen every day

I think the 2 people that won the Mega Lottery last night also believes in miracles

2.What's a recent fad you admit to trying?

A Pumpkin Latte...

Buffy Yuck
It wasn't that bad...
but not the 'heaven flavor' I was expecting from everyone love of PSL

Wasn't too much a fan...  I'll stick to my chocolate, or excuse me, mocha

3.  Peppermint-are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite food or beverage containing peppermint?

Fun Fact - my mom craved peppermint when she was pregnant with me.  Good thing I was a December baby where it's everywhere.

I'm picky about peppermint.  Yes I love it, but I'm not a peppermint drink fan... or in ice cream (not a big fan of ice cream anyways)... but I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE York Peppermint Patties.

Ricky & I usually both pick up 2 a day on the way home so we each have one for dessert every night... right now, they have the snow flake shaped ones for Christmas.  Those are amazing.  They are super thick... yum!!!

Even more of a reason to eat them...

4. Break the ice, on thin ice, as cold as ice (emotionally, not literally) which phrase have you run into most recently? Explain.

On thin ice... the stress of the season & work is getting to me... feeling like the cracks are starting to spread out quickly....

5.  Have you ever broken or spilled something in someone else's home? Still friends?

There was a couple that had a Christmas party every year for everyone in our church in their home... it is a beautiful BIG home - enough to hold most of the congregation!  They have a pitch in & everyone sits & talks & laughs anywhere they can around the house.

So I'm sitting, talking & laughing... & spill my food all over a beautiful suede ottoman in their home... OH MYGOSH!! Can I crawl under something?  Ricky has forbid me to ever take food out of the kitchen after this event.

This is NOT how I spilled stuff on the ottoman
... but that would have been pretty awesome...

I think they had to send the ottoman out to get cleaned... I still cringe...

Still friends?  They left the church not too long after... is it my fault?  Please Lord, don't let it be because of my queso spill... :)

6. 'Tis the week before Christmas...are you feeling more like Buddy the Elf or the Grinch before his heart grew?

I'll be the Grinch until Christmas Eve... & then magically turn into Buddy the Elf...

santa's coming
How do you NOT get excited on Christmas Eve?

I'm fine once I know I can't do anything else.  Until then, I'm running running running from store to store. Ever been in the stores this close to Christmas?  It'll make anyone turn into the Grinch.

7. Share a favorite quote relating to Christmas.



8.  Insert your own random thought here.

So I started watching Breaking Bad on Netflix...

Wow... just wow...

That first season?  If you've never watched it... I wont give anything away, but dang, I literally was gagging in some of the scenes.  Things don't normally bother me on TV... I was freaking out.

Is it wrong that I like Walt?

Glad I just keep going on Netflix - sailed through season 1 - almost through season 2...

I'm staying away from the words "Breaking Bad" on the internet because I don't want to spoil how it ends... so don't spoil it for me...

Anyone else a Breaking Bad fan?


  1. I haven't seen Breaking Bad but I have heard good things about it.
    Sorry to hear about your Ottoman Friends. Do you think your mishap pushed them over the edge?

  2. We had a bbq once, a house full of people, and I'd just had my off white carpet cleaned. (this was years ago-I inherited the carpet when we got that house)...anyone a friend went to sit on my (low) fireplace hearth and tipped his plate of baked beans onto the rug. We laughed, got the carpet cleaned again...stayed friends. I do know when he saw me he always felt he had to apologize again. It stayed with him.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. If those people left your church because of a spill, you don't need hoity-toity nervous nellies around like that anyway. I wouldn't worry about it. They probably had other problems.

  4. love the quote!!!

    i am more of a buddy the elf this year! :)

  5. Yum, Peppermint Patties. I love those old commercials- remember? "Get the sensation!"
    I've been doing a lot of online shopping this week but need to go to a few stores still. I used to love the hustle and bustle but now I prefer shopping from the comforts of my home :)

  6. I do believe that your spill story just might top mine! Wowzers! I think I told you that I had gotten about 95% of my shopping done online. The reason you mentioned is why I don't like going to the stores this close to Christmas...too many folks! Hope you get everything accomplished at your job before your BD and Christmas arrive. Breathe in and breathe out! Got my Google acct. working, again...thanks to Abby, the tech. genius! :)

  7. OHMYGOSH I love reading your blog!! It always makes me laugh!! Seriously. I hope you take that as a good thing!

  8. Pete loves Breaking Bad... I feel like I want to get in on it and now I wouldn't have to wait I could just watch from start to finish. Oooo!

  9. I haven't had a Peppermint Pattie in years but I know I enjoyed them. I will have to buy one! Love the quote. I haven't watched Breaking Bad but I know people rave about it.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  10. Chick Fil A Peppermint Chocolate chip milkshakes are my very favorite…I wait for them every year and then drink them until I am sick :) Doesn't sound like something you would like, but you never know ;)

    When Kevin and I were first married, a friend had a bunch of people over to his parents' incredible house for a Christmas party. I spilled red wine on the cream colored carpet. I still feel bad :(

    Breaking Bad!!!!!! Oh my! We just watched the whole series. When it first started, I didn't like it…the premise really bothered me and I thought it was kind of slow, but friends kept telling us to stick with it and we did then we became hooked! Kevin actually took a day off of work so that we could finish it up because you know we can't be watching it in front of the kids…yikes!!! The acting was really good! Can't wait for you to get further in…we can discuss ;)

    Merry Christmas sweet friend!! Lots of love to you!
