Christmas Time - Is here again...

Yup - that's my husband ... in his "Ugly Sweater" - a holiday tradition.

We're hoping people won't see how ugly the fireplace is if we mask it with ... stuff.


I finally have images from our trip to Charlotte to see Gretchen.

Gretchen and chad doing the thumbs up (read: chad) dance.

Back From Charlotte

Well, our trip to see Gretchen was fun (minus a minor run in with her ex - who knew?). We're back now - and in full house reno mode (probably a side effect from seeing Gretchens newly built beautiful townhome - that doesn't have leaky faucets, 100 year old windows, etc).

So today a plumber came over and quoted us to fix our entire bathroom - which we're doing...gulp. And tomorrow we have an HVAC expert coming over to find out how Brutus keeps getting into the ventilation system.

Did i mention that he keeps getting in the ventilation system (Brutus - not the HVAC guy)? Yea - we found him running through the vents between floors one day. Which, part of me wanted to send him through again to clean them out - but the other part of me completely freaked out that he would fall into the furnace and die (this part took over and then called Regina and her husband crying about the cat being missing).
So, needless to say - our Cirque De Solei kitty will be put to an end this week - as will the bathrooms leaky-ness.

Todays pictures come from Halloween (yea yea..i'm slow).

I swear they were not trying to lay the same way...not at first anyway.

Day After the Reunion...

To sum up yesterday evening:

We went to a friends house, drank. Hung out, drank. Went to the reunion, drank.

In total, it wasn't too bad..from what i remember. Chad was able to see some people he hadn't seen in a while, i was able to calm down the dates of his friends when "the exes" showed up and we both ate our bodies weight in sliders. Yes - i said it...sliders. Those nasty mini burgers that are typicaly served at White Castle...or in double wides.

At the end of the night - Chad was happy and i was all is well that ends well.

Although today was another story. I haven't felt this awful in awhile. Here is a picture of what i did...for pretty much most of the day.

Boring post - nothing to say

Well, tonight is Chad's 10 year high school reunion. Much to my dismay...i may be going. I'll find a way to torture him for putting me through this later.

For those of you counting: it's 4 days til my birthday.

Since i am playing catch up with posting old pictures...todays come from our honeymoon.

I may have to exercise for three days straight

Day After Thanksgiving - and i have come to the realization that i ate my bodies weight in food...times about 20. I'm gross. Gross gross pig.

I made a minor error in judgement when i decided to drink a rockstar and then have two cups of coffee. So, i was up until almost 4am last night...doing nothing outside of watching disney movies and re-eating thanksgiving dinner...about three times. Again with the gross pig comment.
I did however do a few productive things. I uploaded pictures from my digital camera that i had been putting off. So, now..for your viewing pleasure...i bring to you ...doggy halloween.

Our New Blog

Yup - I have created a new blog. I am...that dorky (yet - my husband still loves me)

I am hoping that this blog will be the chronicle of our lives - in a "G" rated sort of way.

I am not sure what would be appropriate for the first post. I guess..the less appropriate...the more fitting.

So why henge. Some background: I was recently on a photography/communications trip with work..and we were in nebraska (imagine my excitment). Well...we were told that we HAD to see carhenge. Appearantly..someone thought stonehenge wasn't enough. We, as a society, needed more. We needed - stonehenge - with cars. is it...
