Late night Fillin' It In {Friday}! Happy New Year!

I took the day off work to be home with my hubby while he is on his 2 week school break.  Last night we went with some friends to see a movie and then hung out until way too late catching up which was so wonderful since they live in Arizona and we rarely get to see them.

This is our friends wedding last year in AZ.  My hubby was officiating.

My Kindle Case

Earlier this year Phil surprised me with a Kindle which was such a wonderful surprise and I have loved reading on it ever since!  After I was using it for a few weeks I began to worry about scratching the face of it and thinking about what sort of case/cover I should get for it.  Then I I began to price the cases I was completely annoyed at the expense of these cases.

It's Christmas Adam {Friday}!!!!

You know like tomorrow is Christmas Eve!

I have realized that not too many people are familiar with the song I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, I think it is a pretty funny Christmas song and Shirley Temple singing just makes it so cute.  But this year I have made up my own lyrics to the same tune.

ORIGINAL LYRICS                                     MY LYRICS
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas                       I hate being sick on Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do                                       Being sick just really won't do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy                        Don't want a fever, no stinky runny nose
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy          I want to be well to play and enjoy.

So anyway that is silly but it was what I was singing this morning as I made coffee so I thought I would share.

As Seen on TV

This weekend I went with a friend to pick out paint and fabric for her baby's nursery and while I was looking around Hancock Fabrics I found an As Seen on TV display.  One of the items stuck out to me immediately - The Fuzz Wizard!!! Now this may sound ridiculous but this little contraption totally made my weekend!  It is a "nubbie" shaver.  You know how clothes has a pristine look and feel to them when you buy them but after one wash they seem to look "frumpy" and old.  How is that?  I mean sheesh I should be able to wash my clothes and not feel like I need to just buy a new shirt.  Well this has been such a frustration to me especially when you have a nice dress or sweater that you no longer want to wear for nice occasions because it look worn.

Fill in the Blank Friday!!! Yippee

I'm so glad it is Friday!  Do I say that every week???  Well maybe but this week seemed extra long to me and I didn't get any chance to blog so this post seems extra important.

This morning on my way to work I was listening to Christmas music ('tis the season) and the Hallelujah Chorus began to play right as the sun peaked up over the clouds that were laying low on the horizon which created the most spectacular orange and pink beams across the sky, it was definitely one of those eternal moments that will be treasured up in my heart.  I tried to take a picture but it didn't turn out as I had hoped, though I will share it anyway.

The kingdom of this world
Is become the kingdom of our Lord,
And of His Christ, and of His Christ;
And He shall reign for ever and ever,

All Lovey-Dovey...

It's Friday and I am pumped about that!
The questions for today center around love because the gal who I follow to get these question is celebrating her 4 year anniversary with her husband... sooooo they all sort of center around that.  I think I'll take a little bit of a different approach in answering so they may seem a bit random but they should be still little tid-bits into getting to know me better....soooo I hope you enjoy.  this is a long one... hope you are bored or have endurance... I think it will be worth it.

Love is  an all encompassing word in the English language that we use for people we most care about to the food we eat most often. The Hebrew and Greek languages (that we see Biblically) have more than one word for different types or aspects of love.  So I'll break it down for interest sake.

It's Beginning to look a lot like....

Christmas came early to me this year!  We found a fireplace at Costco that I just had to have!  I'm so excited about it!  Yes, it's electric, yes it puts out some heat sort of like a space heater.  Mostly it is a warm ambiance but I think it is a great addition to our house.  And since you just plug it in it can move to any room as long as you have some strong people to help out.

As promised the making of the fireplace!

We enlisted a worker!

This site has tons of indie artists that release singles or albums for FREE! And you can tip the artist you like, which I must admit I haven't done but I hope to support my faves through going to shows and future album purchases. The these guys ain't playin' - they ROCK.

Happy December

Wow, the last month of the year!  I'm not sure I have anything particularly profound to say I'm just suddenly surprised we are here!  Finally, 30 more days and we will be into 2012, a year that is a light at the end of the tunnel. More about that next year ;)
