Jingle All The Way…

This past Saturday Meggers had her first piano recital! 

When we first arrived we were handed a program and Meghan quickly realized she would be third to play!

She was so nervous and so excited all at the same time! 

Meg scanned the crowd looking for her piano teacher and finally took a deep breath once she saw her walk in.

When it was her turn to go up I could feel my eyes starting to well up, but I bit my lip to keep it together.

She did such a fantastic job!

 Her dad and I both gave her big hugs and told her how proud we were of her.

Her teacher gave her a big hug and told her she did great too and for the rest of the night  she was grinning from ear to ear!

All I want for Chirstmas…

We’ve been busy the last few weeks putting up the Christmas tree…

and decorating the house a little bit for Christmas!

We’ve also been doing a little baking…

making ornaments…

 donating gently played with toys and visiting Santa!

I think it’s really easy to get wrapped up in the commercial idea of Christmas, but this year we’ve decided not to stress over presents, I mean of course we’ll make sure Moo has a few things to open on Christmas morning, but we also want to enjoy the simple things like being with family and friends, everything else is just cake!

So this week Meggers and I picked Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber (hey it’s Meg she loves the Biebster what can I say?) singing All I Want For Christmas!

Winter Wonderland

This past Saturday my hubby took Moo to the mall to visit Santa!

They were pleasantly surprised when they arrived to find a cute Winter Wonderland set up in the center of the mall.

Meg got to see how her hand measured up to a polar bears…

and she got to play in the snow!

Of course her favorite part was reciting her entire Christmas list while sitting on Santa’s lap!

So todays music pick  is for Meg and it’s Winter Wonderland by Jason Mraz.

 

Snapshot Sunday – Hamming it up on Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving turned out really great this year!

Well…

 Minus the big fat cold that decided to grace me with its presence! 

Even though I was feeling a tad under the weather I still managed to ham it up a bit for the camera!

Me no feel so well! 

Ooo a photo-op!

Time to pose a bit ’cause that’s how I roll!

Go on giz a kiss!

We even managed to get a cute family photo in front of the tree!

Wait…

Stuck Between A Rock And A Happy Place!

It was my anniversary this past Saturday, 11 years married and 13 years together!

 It seems like a long time, but it feels as though it’s gone by so fast.

We often kid each other that repeat offenders do less time!

We’ve been through a lot together and it hasn’t always been easy, but we have a love and respect for one another that seems to keep things moving in the right direction.

Do we get on each others nerves? Yes!  Do we disagree? Absolutely!

But…

Somehow we manage to keep it all together!

Maybe it’s because we find humor in all our glorious dysfunction?

Lord knows we’re far from perfect, but he’s my rock, my best friend and it just seems to work!

Getting Low To My Guilty Pleasure

I’ve always had pretty eclectic taste in music, I can listen to just about anything with the exception of death metal!

 Recently my sister and I were discussing guilty pleasures in music and at first I thought I might pick a country song because I’ve always liked a bit o’ country, but then I got to thinking  it’s not something I would really get embarrassed about if someone caught me listening to it!  

So then I though maybe I should pick a Justin Bieber song because my daughter loves him and I occasionally… alright always sing along, but even that was something I could explain away because my nine-year old daughter LOVES The Biebster!

So after a lot of thought I came up with…

 Get Low by Lil’ John and The East Side Boyz!

(Caution explicit lyrics)

I feel the need to explain!

I first heard the song when my bestie and I went to a karaoke bar and she shocked the shit out of me when belted it out along with Gin and Juice by Snoop Dog.  I never knew till that moment that she even liked rap! I have never laughed so hard in my life and she did a brilliant job.  Then a few months later the movie The Proposal came out and I about died when I saw Sandra Bullock and Betty White singing it around a fire in the woods. 

Yeah I probably look like that when I dance to it too!

So hi my name is Kirsten and my guilty pleasure is Get Low…

 because it reminds me of my bestie!
