10 on 10

Well, more like 5 on 10 today... but I have some bonus pics, so maybe that will make it to 8! haha

I was at work today, so not really any free time nothing you would find interesting...
::breakfast of champions::

::i cut the center out of this stamp because it said "get well" and I just wanted to use the border::
 ::I'll be so glad when holiday hiring is OVER::

::lunch of champions::

::awesome weather today::

these are just playing around with the settings... love the last one...

 Today I am thankful for my DVR. I can't even remember how life was before you... I am so happy to watch all my shows commercial free and have that extra time to do other things... like make cupcakes. I am addicted to TV because of you and I don't care. I love you DVR!

Thankful for Pretzels

I'm a big fan of pretzels 
(and those new pretzel M&Ms, but that's beside the point)

I made some carmel and white chocolate covered pretzels tonight...
yum. yum. yummy.

I just used regular vanilla almond bark (i love the Kroger brand), a pack of carmel sheets that are made to wrap around apples, (look for them in the produce section) and some short pretzel rods... 
cut a carmel sheet with a pizza cutter and wrap around the rod, then dip in chocolate (add sprinkles if you want)

I got the free printables HERE from Skip to My Lou ... super cute!!

 boo for these pics... 
too bad I can't only bake when I have beautiful sunlight coming through the window...


I am thankful for date night...
Tonight the hubs and I went to Olive Garden and had a delicious meal... and some very special connection time. I love that even after 4 years of being together he still puts in extra effort to make our time together special. Headed to the couch to watch Biggest Looser on DVR now! Yea. It's like dinner and a movie!

Catching up on what I'm Thankful for...

I've fallen behind on my "Thankful" posts...
this should get me caught up.


I am Thankful that our couch is the EXACT same color as our puppy.... 
good thing too since that is where he spends most of his time.
We still have to vacuum and lint roll it often, but it doesn't look all hairy all the time.

I'm Thankful for an amazing hubs that doesn't mind when I get into 
the Christmas spirit way before Thanksgiving...
he let's me put our tree up early every year and never gives me any crap about it!

I'm Thankful for separate desktops (we actually have separate lap tops as well) I believe it makes for a happy home life since we don't have to share... especially since hubs is in school for his Masters... that takes a lot of homework/computer time. I share mine with Cole sometimes, he likes to look at craft blogs...

oops! I'm back... (winners)

I said on Friday that I'd be back in the afternoon.... and I wasn't. So sorry friends.
Life just got away with me...
(and I liked it!)

We'd been invited (several times) to go to small group with some of our friends... and we finally took them up on the offer on Friday night. It was a lot of fun and felt so right to be surrounded by Christian friends and pray together. Highlight of my weekend for sure.

Saturday morning, I laid in bed... watched tv and caught up on some magazines before heading to work and I feel like I've been working ever since! Busy weekend at the store...

I wanted to announce the winner(s) 
yes, I decided to pick 2
of the lip gloss giveaway

 Congrats to comments #16 and #14...

(just email me your address so I can make sure your lips stay nice and moist in this winter weather we've been having)
