it was friday ya'll.

I was supposed to finish and post this on Friday. Whoops, enjoy. A day(two days) late and a dollar short. 

1. We had this teacher in high school that said "it's friday ya'll". Now I repeat it every Friday. Fun Fact: I never actually had this teacher, I have just heard stories.

2. True story: this is the conversation my husband and I just had. This whole eating better thing is fine, but I am craving something sweet or fatty real bad. Obviously.

3. Someone find me a coffee shop that will make designs in my frothy coffee. thank you.

4. I jumped on the Mint band wagon. I bought some mint shorts. Come on warm weather!!

5. I have said this before and I will say it again, and again. I love me some Justin Timberlake, pretty much obsessed at this point. His new cd is on repeat and I finally convinced bothered my husband enough to get tickets! Now who wants to save that poor wonderful man and buy his ticket from him.

6. Just a note: everyone should go get the App Weatherpuppy. Thank you Lindsay loves ________.  Why would you not want to check the weather and see cute pictures of dogs demonstrating said weather. Bonus: you can download different dog packages, i may have picked the pug theme.

7. Am I the only one who had to look up the abbreviations kids are using today? Yes, I am aware of saying "kids and today" makes me sound like an 85 year old women. Any-who, I am pretty sure about once or twice a week there is a new one and I need to look it up. Seriously today it was OOTD (outfit of the day).
Come on people spell out what you want to say, are we that pressed for time? I can't be the only person that has to do this, am I?

8. I had the WHOLE weekend off from work. IT.WAS.AMAZING. I tell you it was wonderful. No place to be at a certain time, nothing pressing. It was glorious. Those types of weekend should come around more often.

9. My husband and I went to IKEA yesterday, we bought some outdoor chairs. It NEVER fails that something is damaged or missing. We bought a chair and matching ottoman. This ottoman has a top and (4) leg type bases, one of these said leg bases was not in the box. crap. Thanks IKEA.

10. I'm lacking anything else interesting or witty for a Monday. Stephanie Out.

catching up.

Well i kind of fell off the wagon again. So i am going to try and pick back up. 

1. It seems this Cupcake brand wine is ALL the rage. Everyone seems to love it. So I thought to try it, I bought three bottles. I have tried two of those three bottles and I am not impressed at all people. They were both white wines and I am not always a fan of those so maybe that is why. Anywho, my last bottle which I am thinking of trying this weekend is a Red version and here is hoping all three bottles were not a waste of money. I am a sucker to try anything that EVERYONE else loves. Peer pressure and impulse buys for the win.

2. I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and New Year. Wow it has been that long since I slacked off. Bad Stephanie.

3. We got new appliances recently, it made me such a happy girl. I was very tired of staring at almond everyday. And also being a kitchen designer and designing these wonderful kitchens kind of makes me jealous. It's a small step.

4. I made new years resolutions in my head....I have followed none of them. Epic Fail.

5. Even though it is mid March I am thinking of writing said resolutions down and starting to try again.

6. My name is Stephanie I am 28 years old and I have a horrible obsession with ke$ha. I should not have just admitted that. I am embarrassed but can not help but sing along.

7. With that said I am also eagerly looking for someone to go to the JT & Jay-z concert with. Anyone? Anyone? My husband said he would go, but poor guy, I couldn't do that to him.

8. One of those head planned out resolutions was to stick with the gym. Well we quit the gym a few weeks ago, we never went. So instead we bought our out of shape butts INSANITY. We started it last night, the fit test was an embarrassment to watch for myself and my husband. Here is to 59 more days!

9. Along with the new work out plan is eating correctly. I have never eaten so much food in my entire life. I hope these five meals a day work out, at this point i just feel like I have gained 100lbs due to eating more calories and protein.

10. This past weekend was so nice out for March. My husband and I took advantage of it and walked the dog up the street to starbucks. It was such a nice outing and treat. I honestly enjoyed every second of it.

11. A few weekends ago we went to Monster Jam. Never in my life did I think I would be going to a Monster Jam Event. Well, let me tell you, it was a blast. We took our soon to be 4 year old nephew and the three of us had a great time.

oh, christmas tree.

I wasted no time this year getting my Christmas tree and decorations up. I was very antsy and excited to get my condo decorated. Not that I have much to decorate. This year my nephews were over after I got the tree up and wanted to help me out. I figured my ornaments are shatter proof anyways so I let them help me decorate the tree. In the past I have had a nice blue and silver themed tree. This year I decided to go a little more bright. 

So basically I had a steady stream of toddler hands handing me ornaments. Whether or not I was actually ready to put another one up. It was so nice to see how excited this got them, and how well they helped. They were so proud of their finished product.

They were just to darn cute, I think they helped out nicely. 

Oh and for good measure, Lilly wanted in on the action also. oh and yes, my tree skirt is a blanket. Cheap Stephanie for the win.

This year I have the addition of a smaller table top tree also. For years as a child my grandmother always got my a holiday barbie. I displayed them nicely on a shelf in my room and was so proud of them, never to touch them. When I got too old to keep getting these Holiday Barbies she moved on to the ornaments. It is actually a very nice tradition, for years I acquired these ornaments and I had no where to put them. This year I decided to get a smaller tree and dub it my "barbie tree". My Nana will be so proud. 

I love Christmas time, the family, the togetherness, the spirit. It warms my heart to have these trees lit up when I get home. Is it wrong to keep a tree up all year?

Do you have a second tree? Maybe for those homemade ornaments, more sentimental ornaments?
