Lights Lights and more Lights!!

So yesterday we decided to get ready early this year and went to get our tree. I love real trees the smell so much better and they do not itch my arms as much when I am putting up the lights! SO over the past weekend Aaron my loving hubby put us all the lights on the outside of the house for me. And I found my wreath that I made a couple years ago. (something about me I love to do crafts so I make a lot of stuff all the time) and we got some garland to put around the door and it already had lights on it so I did not have to do that.

This is my cute little snowman that I have made!! He was so much fun to put together and decorate!




Gingerbread House's

Sarah Working on her house
Christie and her crazy house (i think its a church or a barn)


My beautiful house (jk, but not really)










Wed night I went over to my moms house and we all made gingerbread houses and had a blast. I'm not sure if we spent more time talking and eating them then actually making them either way we all had a blast.

Suns Game!!!

So last night Aaron got some great tickets to go see the Suns. And when I say great tickets I mean GREAT tickets. He sat in the 3rd row. And I'm not sure if you can tell but the guy in the Lakers shirt is that actor form The Green Mile (Michael Clarke Duncan) and he sat right in front of Aaron. I thought that it would have been so much fun to go but I thought that Aaron needed some guy time so he took his friend Steve and I think that they enjoyed it, so even though Aaron got home and midnight or later and the game was lame because they lost It was some well deserved time for him to go out and have a little fun.

Finished




So I just finished my latest project. A baby blanket!! My mom thought that it would be cute if all the girls made baby blankets. So I went to the fabric store and found the cutest Winny the Pooh material and I love it. For some reason I made it for a boy. Maybe Somehow I know that we will have a boy first! So I think that I am the only one who has finished it so I was very proud of my self last night when I got done!! Next one I will have to make for a girl just in case! And ya the triangles that go around the border I cut out and sewed them all on, and it took forever but I think it is what really made it cute!

New Class

So I decided to go and take a cake decorating class at Michael's! I just had my first class last night and it was kinds dull we just had to watch the teacher decorating the whole time but next week we get to bring in a cake and do it all by our self so I will take a pic of it when I am done. And that is our homework ya we have homework, we have to bake a cake and make 3 or 4 different frosting's. I think that is will be a ton of fun and I have wanted to do it forever but I did not want to go by my self so I convinced my sis in law to go with me. I will keep you all updated on the class and how I am doing with the whole decorating thing.

-Quirks-
*List 6 quirks that you have that your friends and family may not know about*

1. (First of all I think my family knows me pretty well so I am not sure so just bare with me!)
Ummm... I love to clean I think I keep the house pretty clean except our room for some reason I cant keep up with the laundry so our room can be messy but as for the rest of the house it drives me nuts if it is dirty and I know it can bug Aaron so I try to keep it tidy. But if I know that people are coming over even if it is family that comes over all the time I will go into turbo mode and clean like a mad woman and Aaron always comments(you always clean when people come over) and ya I know i do and I cant help it.

2. I used to suck on my thumb. i am sure everyone in my family knows that, because my mom loves to tell people that. And not only did I suck on it but I did it till I was like 12 or so. So I am not proud of that but hey I did it and I will still catch my self twirling my hair sometimes.

3. I love to buy shoes and purses. I know people are thinking hello every girl loves to that, but I can be really bad at it. I will go in phases and but a ton of shoes then I will move on to purses and during the summer it was bathing suites. I think I have a few of the suites that I have only worn once. And with the shoes right before we moved I went through all mu clothes and shoes and took like 4 big trash bags to savers and 3 of them were all shoes, and I still have a closet full of them.

4. I love it when people come over because like my first one said then my house gets really really clean and for some reason I love to be the host. (for those of you that have ever watched Friends I feel like Monica) I love to bake and cook so when people come over I am always wanting them to eat and do things I cant stand it when they come over and I don't have anything planned, it makes me feel like I failed and supplying the entertainment.

5. I like my friend Lindsay love to make list. If you were to come to my office at any given time I would have a lest 2 or 3 list of something sitting on my desk. We are in the process of getting all of our food storage and I am having a field day with that because you have to keep track of everything you need and everything you have so I am loving that.

6. And last most people know this but I don't know what else to say, I love kids. I love them at all ages. I cant wait to have some of our own but for now I have lots of family members with kids that I can hang out with and hold, and I love it. I love to buy thing for little people and spoil them. Aaron and I just got one of my nephews birthday gifts and his birthday is not for like 20 more days or so and I got it in the beginning of last month. I just get so exited when it comes to little people!!!!!

I tag... Gretchen, Karen, & Nat

New Addition!

We went over to my bros house the other day and he had 1 last puppy from his littler that his dog just had. So I decided that Puma our dog needed a friend. Now that she is an outside dog she gets so board. So we finally broke down and got another one. He is a mix breed the mom is a full blood pit and the dad is a full blood chocolate lab. They sure did make a cute puppy together! So since Aaron named Puma I got to name the new puppy and his name is... Nike. I thought I would keep the theme going with the shoe thing. He is about 5 months old and is not very big so I don't think he will get bigger than Puma so that is good I did not really want to have another big dog, but we will have to wait to see how big he will get!





Halloween

So I hope every ones Halloween was fun!! We stayed home this year and passed out candy. Well kinds passed it out we are in a subdivision that is not quite finished so we did not get very many kids that came over. Till word got around that we were letting the kids take handful's at a time then we got a few more. Then I went over to my brothers house to see his kids and they were just so cute I had to take pics of them!! My mom made all of there little outfits and they turned out so cute. And yet those are real dog bones in there hair and outfits!
this is Wade and Christies baby Gage!
I think he was a little hipper from eating to much candy!

Pebbles and Bam Bam!

Halloween

Halloween is so much fun we were a little behind this year but we did it just in time we decorated our house!! That was a ton of fun. We went and got some of that cotton spider web stuff and put it all over the front porch. We also got a mat that when you step on it, it screams. And also a skeleton that sits up and has a motion sensor that when you walk past it, it lights up and talks to you and shakes like crazy.

You cant really see it but its there!

Exercise!!

Exercise, we are all supposed to do it right? Well that is what I am going to start to do every day (hopefully!!) I have had a bike for a while now but living in the condo I never really had the chance to just ride around so now that we have a garage and it is more accessible I am going riding every night. But then we ran into a problem. I like it when Aaron goes with me and he cant keep up by just running so we went to Big 5 last night and got some new roller blades! They rock. I feel like I am 5 years old again with my arms out trying so hard not to fall. We went over to Aaron' sis house and her and her daughter put on there blades and we went around the block. Turns out we went the longest way possible around the block to were each time around was 1 mile. So we went just over 3 miles the first night I had my blades and my ankle was rubbing so hard, but it felt great. I recommend to get a great work out get some roller blades!! You cant see the bike very well but we got a new seat for it that is awesome and so soft it makes it worth it to ride for a long time.

The new me!!

So I decided that I wanted to change things up a bit and thought that I would do that with my hair. So I dyed it a dark brown and cut it all off. You cant really tell by the pic but the hair before was a light brown with a tint of red in it. and I don't know if you can see but the back is layered up really short and it is only like 1.5 to 2 inches long!! So short, I think I took off around 10 inches or so in the back so I hope you all like it!!

Here it is!!

So here it is some pics of the house but only the out side because the inside is a disaster with boxes every were. I am wanting to paint every room a standard tan and so far I only have the master bedroom and half the family room done so far so I have a long way to go!! But I like to paint so I'm okay with it. And there is not landscaping in yet we have to get that done soon. I hate dirt some how it always comes inside the house and it can never stay clean.





Here is our dog Puma. She is so mad at us for making her stay outside every time we open the door there she is trying to get in. But for the most part she loves it and the yard is a really nice size for her to play in!!

New Location

Hello everyone thanks for following us over to our new blogger home, were so happy you did. So sorry there is nothing to look at yet but we are moving in case you have not heard so I will be posting a lot of pics of our new house soon. We are moving back down to Casa Grande, for some reason we keep getting drawn back there. But we LOVE the new house and cant wait to move in. We got to go pick out our appliances about two weeks ago and they are going to be installed today!! I'm so exited to see how they look but I'm not so exited to keep them clean. They are all Stainless Steal, so if any one has any pointer or knows what works great on that then please let me know!! Thanks and stay posted!
