High Five for Friday

I have completely sucked at link ups lately and I'm sorry. I have been thinking about new yers resolutions and being better at this is top of my list. Anyway.....Its Friday and I am happy....

1. The girlies and I are going to the movies tonight to see Wreck it Ralph...or Rise of the Guardians.....but probably Wrek it Ralph.

2. I finished my trainer credential class. :) I just have a few webinars to do and send some paperwork off and I'll be able to do PD trainings for schools and child care facilities.

3. I had an awesome Cyber Monday. I got THE big present for someone. I'm so excited about this. It is hard for me notto let people open presents early. I just get so excited.

4. I'm going shopping tomorrow. I have all my presents except 3 and I think I can be done tomorrow.

5. I had a fabulous Wednesday night with Greg. He had friends over and we drank and they played music and he sang....it was like old times again.

On a side note our Elf is still being extremely naughty. She demanded to do shots with us....How can you say no to that face? Seriously I wouldn't say no I'd be afraid she'd kill me in my sleep.
Oh yeah can't forget.....I'm linking up with Lauren

Shopping and Elves

And I literally just noticed that the word elves is almost the word elvis
 
I take pride in having my Christmas shopping done early. Its not that I'm a hyper organized, type-A neurotic personality person. Although I am. Its that I have no patience. None at all. If I had to wait until when the stores are packed with people I'd go insane. I can honestly say I am almost done shopping.  I am even almost done with little stocking stuffers for the girlies. I am officially done with the girlies big items. I can't share what they got. I'd be afraid that they secretely read the blog. Lets just say I will have 2 very happy kiddos.

I still don't have my Christmas tree up. It will probably be next week before I actually get it done. I did get the girls an Elf on the Shelf. Her name is Elise. She is kinda creepy....and she is a very bad elf. See for yourself....
Turns out Elise loves red Stag and Ken....Barbie is so upset.

poor, poor cynical me

I had a fun thanksgiving that you'll hear all about but first.....

Am I the only girl cynical about love? A friend of mine posted on her Facebook that the movie fireproof makes her cry every time she watches it. My reaction to that movie and ones like it.....the Notebook,  Titanic, insert name of super sappy movie here, is nausea at best. Anger at the worst. I remember watching Titanic when it first came out and being so pissed off at the people crying and thinking just die already gosh. Typing that I realize I am a little disturbed. Its not that I don't WANT to believe life can be like that its just from experience I know it isn't. I know in reality someone isn't going to fall in love with you again just because you are nice to them. I should add when my  marriage was failing I tried the fireproof book and we watched the movie. You know what he said he couldn't make it past day one. Day one is "For
the next day, resolve to demonstrate patience and to say nothing negative to your spouse at all. If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything.
"
because he couldn't think of anything nice to say. Needless to say I think the movie/book and the love dare program is full of shit. Thanks for listening to my little rant. Now on to Thanksgiving.

Greg came with me to my family's dinner and then we took the girls to their dad and went to his family's for a few days.
My girlies and my sister
me and Greg
the food
When we got to Va to Greg's family we...ate again of course. Friday we slept in.....no black Friday for me. I am just not patient enough. I'd rather pay extra not to have to post bail. We also had a party at Greg's brother's house. It was fun to see people I hadn't seen in awhile. They played music which I missed terribly. He hasn't played since my birthday (back in July). Ben forgot half of his drum stuff and ended up making a cymbal stand out of a coat hanger. All in all it was a good time.....although I am so ready to go back to work. 
Yes that is the Christmas Story Leg lamp behind Greg. I'd love to steal it.

WooHooo for 2 day work weeks

I went to a work shop on Saturday which let me take an extra day off this week. I almost feel guilty about it because the workshop was so much fun, I learned a lot, and hung out with some awesome people. I really love my job and how flexible and fun it is. I feel lucky every single day for it. I could write a thankful post everyday in November just talking about my job.

I think I'm in a funk. Other than my job and my sweet girlies my life feels very blah. I just can't bring myself to blog anymore. Coming up with a positive topic is like pulling teeth now, and I feel pretty insecure about my current relationship. I'm hoping the 5 days of sleeping in and relaxing will help me get out of this mood.

I am so thankful

That you guys haven't abandoned me. I have been the worst blogger in the world. I am thankful that I have new readers (either that or I forgot how many I had since I'm been away 2 million years). I'd like to assume I actually have new readers....Hi new readers!!!!  I am also doing the month of thankfulness on facebook. So I'm gonna share my sometimes random and funny list of things I'm thankful for.
  1. I am thankful that the 6th season of Psych is now on Netflix
  2. I am thankful for Shih Tzu's and their cute little ears and their cute little noses....I just love Shih Tzu's I want them all, in baskets with cute little bows.....and maybe on a rainbow.
  3. I am thankful for my girlies
  4.  I am thankful for the extra sleep
  5. I am thankful I finally found the perfect house for me and my menagerie, now if it doesn't sale before everything else gets into place.
  6. I am thankful for the honest person at the election poll who found and returned my wallet with all the money inside
  7. I am thankful for Bacon, without it life would be soooo sad
  8. I am thankful for band functions that will keep me at the high school until 10ish.....without them I'd be waaaaay to comfy on my couch later.
  9. I'm thankful for all day meetings in Frankfort. Without them i would never have time to up date my grocery and to do lists.
  10. Today I am thankful that the most pressing thing I have had to do is lay on the couch and read.
  11. I am thankful I got to see my nephew Inigo Montoya today
  12. Today I am thankful I bought Westley and Fezzik rain coats, even though Greg  thinks I am crazy for dressing my dogs in clothes.
  13. I'm thankful I got some time to hang out at my desk. First time in almost a week
  14. I'm thankful I found the ring I bought when I was in labor with Abbey.

The party that wasn't

I know I duck in an apologize for disappearing and then disappear again. If you only knew how crazy my week has been you'd understand.....and I'm sure you're thinking if you'd only tell us we'd understand. So I promise this week I'll catch you up on the crazy weekend I had last weekend with a work retreat on one side of the state and a band competition on the other. It was a whirl wind 641 mile weekend.

We were suppose to have our Halloween party tonight since we were away last weekend. However Greg has been sick and we really didn't plan well. So the party fizzled and we have a couple coming to hang out with us and that is it.

I bought an elf on the shelf. I kept seeing pics of it all over pinterest and couldn't resist. My girls don't believe in Santa but I just had to have one anyway. I seem to have gotten a naughty elf though....this is what she did the first night at our house. Keep an eye out for more naughty elf antics.
I got my hair cut. Actually that was a few weeks ago, I just haven't been able to get a pic.

So here ya go...new haircut
