Here is our Christmas card this year. We had a little animal photo shoot which was pretty much the funniest thing ever. Kitty HATES that sweater. She refuses to move when she has it on. Which you would think is good but she just lays around and won't look at the camera so we propped her up like this. Ralph on the other hand LOVES having his picture taken. He is such a well behaved pooch, well at least in front of the camera.

Just a quick post to publicly say how grateful, or Thankful may be better, I am for everything. We had to say the 3 things we are most thankful for. My list, in this order, Chris. He is the best thing to happen to me. I am so blessed to have him forever. I would be one lost lady without him. Number two is my crazy, insane, inappropriate, hilarious, and loyal family. They are more than family they are also my best friends, I am so lucky!! 3 is for my health and happiness, not just mine but also the health and happiness of everyone I love. Of course the list goes on and on but those are the first three. Hopefully everyone has as great a day as I did. Now I better get back to listening to my husband snore while he takes a pre black Friday nap.

My cousin Erin lives in Cali and she got married to the nicest guy Dave. I don't know him very well but I can tell he is a really good guy and loves Erin so much. I am so happy for them.
I have a friend who it Clooney from Up In The Air so I had to take this picture of security and send it to him. There is no way he would ever wait in this ridiculous line.
So you can see that this man's pants have something embroidered on them right? In case that is not bad enough on its own. The things embroidered are little NCs for North Carolina....Oh my! Words cannot express how hideous these were. Don't worry his wife totally busted me taking this photo. But I had to I was all alone and I didn't think anyone would believe me.
Speaking of being alone, Chris was in Arizona for work so I Jetted to San Diego with Kleis, my mom. She had a lot to do and family to see and since I am kind of a humbug I made her go without me. So I walked around Coronado by my lonesome and enjoy a delicious breakfast by myself...I ate way to much as you can see.
My dad sits on this bench every morning when he is in San Diego. He loves this little seat. He wanted to put his name on it but they told him he has to be dead to be commemorated on a plaque...can you believe it. So dumb. What do they care if you are alive or dead. Anyway to secure his future bench he put one on for my Grandparents who have both passed away. But I think when my dad passes, in lots of years from now, they get the boot and he is in. haha he never lets me forget that we need to change this to his name.
Erin and Dave. Such a sweet happy couple. Love them. Too bad my camera was in my suitcase.
Erin is not a dancer!! At all! As they announced this dance she walked passed me and mumbled to me
"I have been dreading this dance my entire life". Classic Erin. I love it. She did really well because Dave had given her lessons.
The next day I went to lunch with my old friend Jennie who lives in Coronado now. It was so much fun to see her and her cute family. Then we did a family dinner for my cousin Andy's birthday. It was awesome to see everyone and spend time with my grandparents.
San Diego was a blast but the flight home made me rethink ever flying again. I am already a knuckler when it comes to flying but this was the WORST flight of my life. I hated every second of it. It was so bumpy I didn't even get my damn Diet Coke. AHHH!!!!
Not in the philosophical sense but in the time consuming sense. So just two short weeks after our wedding, one week after honeymoon, and one day after trips to Arizona and San Diego, Chris and I have officially begun our remodel! AHH. We have been running around like chicken with our heads cut off. Life has been crazy. I forgot to get before pics of the bedroom but I'll for sure get some of the rest before it undergoes its transformation from house to home.I have pics to post from all of the previously listed events as soon as i have a minute to download them. I stole this lovely pic from Molly's website. She did such a great job shooting the wedding. We have been going through and picking our favorites, its so hard, there are so many good ones!
Oh has anyone been to the social security office lately, or ever for that matter? That place is a total freak show. Luckily i got there before they opened but there was still a huge line ahead of me...but it wasn't 3 hours like my mother-in-laws last trip...what a joke.
Doesn't Chris look so handsome. I for sure married up. He is so fun to be married to. We each had obligations that took us to separate states last weekend and being away from him sucked. We've done it before but this time we are married and i missed him so much, Dorky? Yes it is, but I'm ok with it.
So to all of my faithful readers...do i even have one? doubt it! HAHA anyway in case someone happens here by accident, I will post pics of wedding, honeymoon, and trip to San Diego soon. Football weekends are a great time for me to sit next to Chris and pretend to be supportive while I catch up on my posts. I'm getting this wife thing down fast huh?

Be prepared! (not in Scars evil voice, but in a happy excited voice). The blog will be undergoing a bit of an overhaul now that this blog isnt so much about me as it will be about me and Chris and our new life as a little family. We are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives. Hopefully you will come along for the ride and not be too bored. We will have more pictures and definite wedding stories to come. Right now we are sitting by a cozy fire in Jackson Hole watching the fog roll in. Very romantical, besides the fact that I'm blogging. Ha! So stay tuned if you want to see stuff about the wedding.
