Buckets of Joy

Well hello there! Hope everybody had a nice holiday. We definitely had a wonderful time celebrating together and with family. 

I feel like being a parent and experiencing Christmas through our kids' eyes is better than any present that you can buy in a store. Dom and Will just get so excited - yes, excited for toys, they are kids after all - but also excited about the possibility of snow, and family time and Santa and just the magic and wonder of the season. 







 
 Some days I complain that they are so spoiled, but I also know that they and we are so blessed to be surrounded by family and friends who love our little guys. 

So anyway, all of this to say that I hope that you all are surrounded with love and family during the holidays. And fill your buckets with joy. <3

It's Been a Long Time...

Didja miss me? I've missed you like a skinny kid loves salad. My laptop battery won't hold a charge anymore and I have no funds to replace it... So blogging has taken a bit of a backseat. I'm officially blogging on my iPad right now, so if stuff looks wonky, I apologize.

Anyway, fill me in, what's been up with you guys? I've had a bit of a bout of seasonal depression, I think. Will's 3rd birthday was at the beginning of this month and I couldn't manage to do more than buy him a cookie cake to celebrate. Mom of the year award right here. But luckily he thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread and asks for cookie cake every day. So a partial win, I guess.

Then, we decided, out of financial necessity of course, that we wouldn't buy presents for anyone but the kids. We just cannot afford it. And on the one hand, it has eliminated a lot of stress and I haven't had to face any of the crazed shopping hordes. But on the other hand, I miss it because I love buying presents for people! Le sigh.

And I had a weeklong visit from the stomach bug fairy. No sugar plums here, just visions of barf dancing in my head. I'm feeling much, much better though! 

But we did get our Christmas tree up. It has lights, but no ornaments. What? #ghettofabulouschristmas

Anyway, just wanted to check in and let y'all know I'm still around. Xo

Okie Dokie

Nugget On A Budget

It's okay that I haven't posted anything other than the Hump Day Hop link up in forever. I've just been so busy. And tired. And the usual list of excuses. 



It's okay that I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving with the biggest smile on my face and in my belly. I've been really good for over 2 weeks with my eating and resisting falling back into a lot of my old eating habits. I've lost 8 lbs so far, which is amazing and really motivates me to stick with it. But man oh man... my Thanksgiving cheat dinner is going to be amazing. My taste buds will be in overdrive. :) 



It's okay that I have already started listening to my Justin Bieber Christmas album again. You can never have too much Christmas. Or the Biebs. Don't hate. 



It's okay that I tend to avoid tv shows that have a lot of hype and then watch them years later on Netflix. I get so excited about them and then my friends are like, "Um.. yea.. that was cool... 4 years ago!" haha. What can I say? I'm a rebel. #notreally



It's okay that I am about to fall asleep trying to watch Sons of Anarchy. Not because the show is boring, but because I am old. Somebody get my prune juice. Nighty night!

Good Girls Like Bad Boys

I feel like in every book that you read these days, or every movie or tv show that you watch, there's usually a good guy and a bad guy. Both attractive, of course, but... I *always* find myself drawn to the bad boy. Always. And they don't necessarily need to always be "bad" or the villain... just mysterious, or misunderstood, etc.  
 
 
 
What is my deal?? I don't really know. Maybe because bad boys are overrated in real life and I married the good guy and he's my boo? Perhaps. 
 
 
 
Anyway, so, let's test this theory, shall we?
 
 
 
Stefan vs. Damon.




 
 
 
DAMON all the way.
 
 
 
Brandon vs. Dylan.
 
 




 
Um, hello? Have you seen that eyebrow? Meow.
 
 
 
Dawson vs. Pacey.
 
 



 
Ha, is that even a serious question?
 
 
 
Ben vs Ricky.
 



 
 
Not even a contest.
 
 
 
Rick vs. Shane.
 
 



 
Rick completely bores me. And Shane is intriguing.
 
 
 
Jack vs. Sawyer.




 
 
 
Sawyer = Saw-yes
 
 
 
Bill vs. Eric.



 
 
 
I mean, you have eyes, right? R-a-w-r.
 
 
 
OK, so obviously I could continue for days, but I think I've proven my theory.
 
 
 
You're welcome for the man candy.  What is it about those bad boys, ladies? 



Tell me who some of your fave bad boys are!
