I definitely started my Christmas music two days early this year. I have a VERY strict rule that Christmas music begins the day after Thanksgiving and is in FULL effect until Christmas Day when I am cut off again for another year. But, as I was baking (that turned out as NASTY Soup pie instead of the normal pecan pie I make EVERY SINGLE YEAR. What happened??) on Wednesday in preparation for Thanksgiving, I couldn't help myself.

Now, just picture, The Larsens dancing around to Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is You" over and over again. It's times like these that I know I really scored. How many husbands would do that??

I LOOOOVVEEE Christmas Music. And I REALLY love that song. I don't care what any of you say. I won't change my mind!

For more appealing music, also check out "Maybe this Christmas". It's the best Christmas mix of all time. (Okay, maybe not all time, but definitely right now). Love it!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a fab Thanksgiving. Like usual, we brought a camera with us to Bakersfield, but forgot to charge it. Yet again another fun family weekend with no evidence. I promise, we had a blast and I LOVED Twilight. Can't wait to see it again!

*And apparently I'm in some sort of blogger funk. I can't write, I can't spell, and I can't think of anything to write about. :(

Fleshy Beard

Yes it is true. The other night I turned on the tube, checked out what we hadn't watched on the DVR, and chose to watch...The Hills. I can't get enough of the show's formula of: 

lame dialogue - cut to overhead of LA with cool music - really short lame dialogue - cut to overhead of nighttime LA with so so music - lame dialogue. 

I love seeing what Spencer and his freaky facial hair will do next. He's a train wreck.

There's a very good reason I'm never going to be super skinny. That is because I continue to eat Thai fried rice for lunch, split a slice and dog at Costco and eat entire Ghiradelli Sundays without sharing.

What am I going to do with myself??

You can make your own assumptions...

...last night as I was reheating food for my dinner, I definitely heard a specific theme song come on the TV. Oh yes, Patrick had personally selected "that" show to watch without ANY persuading from me. While I won't tell you what show it was, I will tell you that I was completely shocked.

He's comin' around. YESSSSSSSSS

I'm not one to brag, but it's hard not to today.

We had the best day ever. Shopping all day with my dad and Patrick

Then the Ducks game with them and my Grandma.

SO fun.

Best Part? Finding the PERFECT Christmas Party dress. I LOVE Calypso. (Ok, maybe hanging out with my family all day was the best part, but this was definitely a close second.)

In case you were wondering...

I would LOVE these as a Christmas Present. Yes, I know they're overpriced and overseas but that's what Christmas is all about, right? Impracticality :)

Gorgeous. And I've been looking for pretty coasters for forever. Wait a minute...don't you think Lisa Corcoran could make something like these with the Elison Machine?? Hmmmmmm.....

To be honest. I'd also like the throw blanket, the table centre piece, and any of the rugs. But I'd be happy with the coasters :)

Don't worry, I'll post some more realistic (and unrealistic) "Christmas Wishes" in the upcoming months to help give you all some ideas. :) I know, I know, I'm SO thoughtful. ;)

Happy Halloween!

I'm a big fan of any reason to celebrate, but for some reason, this year I wasn't very excited to dress up for Halloween. That quickly changed once Patrick and I got the great idea to dress up as John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Now, regarldess of your political affiliation, I'm sure you can appreciate our impressive (and thrifty!) costumes. Note, my outfit did NOT cost $150,000, nor is it from Neimans or Saks. And yes, that is baby powder in Patrick's hair (it's not that grey just yet).

We also found some awesome Maverick buttons online to complete the outfit. 

Our friends the Bellisarios and the Woolwine's threw a great Party friday night. There were lots of interesting costumes roaming around...

Oh, and feel free to drop by any of your leftover candy at our apt :) hehe

We're off to Laguna again this weekend to hang out with my parents! We're really excited. Especially because we get to go to a Ducks game. I LOVE hockey!!
