Not So wonderful words this Wednesday

Ok so today my post is dedicated to all who shop at the Jasper Indiana Walmart, what a special group of people, and not special in a good way but special in the stop eating the paste kinda way.

Dear Lazy lady who changed their child somewhere in the Walmart store and left the poopy diaper on the bottom of the cart,
Thanks for sharing the joys of children with us this Holiday season. You really gave me something to look forward to.

Dear Amish/ Mennonite People who are bussed in by the hundreds,
Be Nice!! Thanks for reminding us that simplicity includes Walmart electronics inclusive of portable dvd players and pre-paid cell phones, oh yeah and one more thing BE NICE!!

Dear Checkout girl who proved ignorance is true bliss,
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to practice my Spanish and for the reminder that just because you don't speak English you are still human and do deserve as much respect as any other customer. Perhaps when your checking out Hispanic people you should remember that!! And also it wasn't their fault that you didn't know what cilantro was. Have a blissful holiday!

Dear Crazy Man in the parking lot driving a huge truck with the Confederate flag decal across the back window,
You may have wanted my parking space and your impatience was made crystal clear when I went three spaces down to return my cart to the cart receptacle and you threw your hands up off your steering wheel and mouthed a few choice words at me.... I'm going to choose to think you were just wishing me a Merry Christmas.

It just amazes me how much the Christmas Season has lost, we are so afraid to not offend someone that we have stopped sharing the true reason for Christmas, the birth of our Lord and Savior. Truly when walking around Walmart for one hour today I couldn't find Christmas Spirit anywhere, it was sooooo upsetting. People are so focused on giving gifts that they have forgotten why were giving.
So now I am gonna go plug in our tree lights and watch Eloise at the Plaza, hopefully I wont be such a Scrooge after this dose of Christmas spirit!

Ok... So I am Batman.

I'd like to dedicate this post to all of my friends out there who are married. Its not easy being married and this joke is so funny I had to share it with you all!

-Three friends were out to lunch, all dishing about their relationships. One friend had a boyfriend, another was newly engaged, and the third was married. They all decided that things in the bedroom needed to be spiced up so all together they went to a lingerie shop. After careful shopping and trying on all three decided on the same outfit, a black bra, black lacy panties, and black thigh high stockings. All three women decided to go home and try it out on their partners with the promise that they would get together tomorrow and dish all about their nights.
The next day
-The three women sat at the same table they had lunch the day before and started talking about their nights. The girl with the boyfriend confessed about a night filled with hot passionate love making, the second raved how her and her fiance made love all night long and they were very tired today, while the married girl just sighed and smiled to herself....
"When my husband got home I was sitting on the couch in my sexy black lingerie, he looked me up and down and said "What's for dinner Batman?"
hahah I just think this is sooo funny! Sometimes you can put so much effort into something and your spouse has absolutely no idea! It happens around here all the time! My husband is so wonderful in so many other ways, it makes up for it, but in the mean time I'm sometimes happy to be Batman!

Wonderful Word on a Wednesday

So this time of year I think it is really easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of Christmas, all the shopping, traveling, and gifts make it really easy to loose sight of the real meaning of Christmas and the one gift that we should all be eternally thankful for..
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17
Thanks be to god for his indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians
I'm praying that everyone has a wonderful holiday season filled with love and family!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I thought in order to spread some Christmas cheer i would share our holiday decorating! I had so much fun decorating our first home for Christmas both inside and out!

Even chip got i on the holiday decor!
My favorite, my mom got Patrick and I needlepoint stockings last year for Christmas!

A holiday use for an apothecary jar! Put some snow and cheesy little fake people and make a Christmas scene! I love it!

Garland!!! I didn't buy pre-decorated garland because we needed a lot and its super expensive. For the amount I needed it would have been 500.00... So instead I got the cheap pre-lit and some inexpensive fake poinsettia bushes some bows and borrowed some ornaments from the tree and voila! Instant garland for right around 50.00~!

Here is my favorite holiday craft idea. We had some blank space to fill and nothing to fill it so i bought these cheap frames from walmart 3.00 each and a can of gold spray paint 2.50 and then i dry brushed a little red craft paint over the top and stuck some our favorite Christmas cards from last year in there for 8.50 two great pieces of art, and i still have left over spray paint!

Our tree, I stuck with red and gold throughout the whole house, just use what you got!

Outside: I did the same thing with Garland super easy!!

Our lights! Ohh how I love Christmas!

I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as me decorating for Christmas! Enjoy this time of year with your friends and family because before you know it it'll be over!
