The holidays are upon us

Okay, I'll admit it. I love Christmas. I LOVE and I mean LOVE Christmas music. I am listening to it right now. I know, I'm a freak. I love the smell of Christmas, the cold weather and darker nights. I love it all. I love Christmas lights, the tacky decorations. I'm a big ol' marshmallow!

So, what are some of your favorite winter Holiday thoughts (they don't have to be about Christmas) or favorite songs. What about favorite toy when you were a kid?

Favorite song: Christmas in NY and Baby it's cold outside.

Favorite holiday memory: One that instantly comes to mind is last year it actually snowed on Christmas. That was my first one.

Favorite toy: Easy-hands down-Barbie Townhouse. I had that with her jet and her corvette. AWESOME! I loved that she had an elevator in her house.

Not much is going on

It's been pretty quiet since I got back from the coast. We had such a blast! We had the Presidential Suite which was very fitting since it was election night and we have a wonderful new president. Even if you don't agree with his politics the pride and hope that people are experiencing makes me look forward to the future. So! Wanna see the room! It was CRAZY!

The first picture is of the front of our room. Yes, that is a baby grand piano. We also had a bathroom the size of my whole upstairs! The next picture is the coastline. I love the Pacific Northwest coastline. I do missing laying out in the sun but the rocky coast is so beautiful. The last picture is of Mark at Camp Disappointment. I love that name.

Oh yeah, one more thing. I came across this tree and I am DYING to know the name of it. I want to plant on in my yard. Does anyone know. Those are the actual flowers/leaves on it. It's beautiful.

Happy Anniversary!

Tomorrow is mine and the hubby's 2nd wedding anniversary. I would post something tomorrow but I will be out of town at the coast, enjoying the rain and the surf. We are staying at the Hotel Elliott. It is our 3rd time there. We went when we got engaged, our first anniversary and now our second. I love it! We got the romance package. Oh yeah!

So, I thought it would be nice to show off some pictures. I love you OMP. You are everything in the world to me. You are my saint. Thank you for keeping me sane, loving me no matter what, giving me the best life anyone could possibly imagine. Don't worry, I'm not gonna go "Wind beneath my wings" on ya but you are my savior. I love you more and more each day.

Here is a picture of our cake. We had a Day of the Dead/Tiki wedding at the oldest Tiki bar in Portland. It was so much fun!

I love you with every breath of life I have Mark. Thank you for making me the happiest woman in the universe.

Just me rambling...

Life is finally settling back down after crazy work stuff, Halloween and putting the house back together. I got to spend Halloween with some awesome peeps. We went and saw Mark play then went on a graveyard tour. It was really cool! I'm so glad that I felt better and could go. Other than that-I've just been concentrating on making lots of stuff and gearing up for the holidays. I LOVE Christmas as much as I love Halloween so even though I know I have two months, I still get excited.

Things I am loving right now:
my puppers
My friends-Kelsey and Hillary have been keeping me sane. You guys are amazing!
Busby Berkley movies
Christmas crafting
