Hi Tiffany!! did you have your date?.

I had a nice weekend. We baked yesterday. Well mostly the kids did and I did the dishes. I'm glad it's done. I have to get ready for Christmas dinner now. We had my MIL's b'day party on Saturday night at a restaurant and that turned out really nice...

Comment #2

Good morning Tiffany and Heather!.

I had a decent weekend, hardly did anything but that's what made it so nice, lol..

We didn't really have a good time with LB, we had gotten him a present. Nothing big, just a sand art kit. We had gotten a bouncy-ball making kit from the same company and he really enjoyed pouring the mixture in last time, so we thought it would be fun. When he first saw the wrapped present, he said "oh, it's not a puppy, it's too small.

". Of course it's not a puppy we told him! We would have to ask his mom's permission, which he knows she wouldn't give. Then LB excitedly tore off the paper, and looked defeated, saying "oh, what's this?". We explained it, and he still looked really sad. When we asked why, he said he thought it was going to be a mini-computer, because it was about that size. For serious? Who the H would give this kid a mini-computer? He can't even keep track of his Nintendo DS (he lost it months ago).

He came around a little when I started using the pasta machine to cut the pasta, then he ended up having fun when I let him make his own spaghetti and cooked it separetly. LB seemed to be on the upswing, then we played a Wii trivia game that he had brought. He yelled every time we got a question right and got mad that we didn't let him win (I guess that is what normally happens). All in all, it wasn't a very good visit...

Melly.

- Saw on FB about officially being a college student! Congrats!.

Mer.

- Aw! I am sorry to hear that. It might be a case of no adult in his life teaching him to be grateful but it could also be his age. I am not sure if you have a good relationship with his Mom but I know if it were my child I would want to know that my son reacted that way to a gift. If it makes you feel any better, my Mom and I pooled our money together and bought both my neice and nephew a whole Christmas worth of gifts and got similar reactions. They were nonplussed to say the least. In their case, I know they were never really taught to be grateful or say thank you by either their dad or my sister. My sister is still a brat and she's 30+...

Comment #4

Morning ladies!! Off to backread from what I missed..

Good weekend. Got it ALL done! : Family photos, Christmas shopping, Christmas cards and halfway through the wrapping. WHEW!..

Comment #5

Good mooooooooooooorning glories! how i've missed you!.

Heather.

&.

Tiff.

- baking sounds fun! my best friend and I dedicated an entire day to baking when I visited her in PA. more on that later....

Hey,.

Ashtastic.

!.

Morning,.

Mer.

! sorry to hear about your visit with LB..

It's unfortunate that some kids don't know how to be thankful, especially considering (most) kids in the US have so much to be thankful for compared to the rest of the world. I think your gift was sweet! how old is he?..

Comment #6

Xtina.

!!! good morning..

Glad you tracked me down on FB. I missed you gals last week! you're awesome for getting all your stuff done. i'm inspired! I thought i'd get it all done, but I have a few more teeny things to do before christmas. i'm gonna make it happen, mariah carey style!!..

Comment #7

I am finally feeling in the Christmas spirit! I spent yesterday with a good friend and her whole family making Christmas cookies! The kind you roll out and cut out shapes and then decorate with royal icing and sprinkles! I am 27 years old and it was my first time ever doing it. It was also their 11 week old son's first time! So we have pictures of Caeden & I making our first ever Christmas sugar cookie!..

Comment #8

Mer.

- Thats sad. Sorry it turned out that way. Kids can be brats, espcially if they are allowed to be by their parents. I agree with.

Ashlee.

...I would tell his mom..

Heather.

- I had my date with BT1...actually it kind of turned into a whole weekend thing..

The Christmas Party got me all upset...it was not recieved well so I left at the end instead of going to the After party. The afterparty is all drinking anways and I am not allowed to have drinks yet. I called BT1 on the way home and he wanted to see Tangled so we went and then had dinner. He then came over and just chilled. He picked me up Saturday morning for our official date and we saw Tron, then went shopping and to eat. Yesterday he called and wanted to hang out.

He is very nice....I am just not attracted to him for some reason. Like nothing. I feel really bad cause I am pretty sure he really likes me, and I have no clue how to approach this. When I say bye he looks all sad and hopeful at the sametime, like he might get a kiss bye (he didnt) and I feel all bad. I want him as a friend..

I dont know what to say so that it does not end badly...

Comment #9

So... quick recap from taytay spent weekend before last with my best friend in PA, who's five months pregnant. it was wonderful!!!!!!!! seriously, might be the best weekend i've had all year. I hate not living in the same city as her anymore. wah wah! she surprised me with tickets to see the rockettes' christmas spectacular at radio city music hall, which was...wait for it...SPECTACULAR!.

And now for the Medifast portion of my update: I managed to stay OP the entire weekend, until we started baking... it was all downhill from there, and well into the next week...and through this past weekend. YIKES. I pretty much ate everything in sight. however, since I kept up my pretty intense workout schedule, I managed to not gain anything, which is pretty much a christmas miracle!.

Ryan picked me up from the airport, and when we walked in my door, I had a CHRISTMAS TREE waiting for me! i've been trying to save money, so I decided not to buy a tree this year, which was suuuuuuper sad. I even pulled out all my lights and ornaments and made a "christmas table," which was kinda sad, but also kinda funny. ryan knows how much I love christmas, so he went out, bought a tree, set it up, and put all my ornaments on it. LOVE HIM!.

This past weekend was super fun, got lots of christmas-y things done, and went to see "the fighter" last night. so, so good. I love grown-up marky mark!..

Comment #10

Ash.

- your christmas cookie experience sounds sweet! I love baking with kids (even teeny ones.

). so fun!.

Tiffany.

- that stinks that you're not attracted to BT1, especially since he's into you, but it happens. i've been in that situation, and I let it linger waaaaay too long, so my only advice is to let him know sooner rather than later. you'll have a better chance of keeping the friendship that way, too. (((big hugs!))) I know it can be a super awkward situation, but you'll find the right words...

Comment #11

Morning Everyone!.

Mer- Aw, what the heck ha, this kid expected alot. But I think you guys did really well. Sorry it didnt go as well.

So my weekend was CRAZY! prob the worst in my life. It was my brothers birthday party on Saturday, and everyone was drinking (including me.

) and we all decided to go to this bar called the Silver spur, they do line dancing until 11 and then hip hop and stuff. Anyways most of us were drunk before we even got there. Including my brothers (twins, bday) anyways Brother Brandons gf thing came from Seattle and was being hit on my a drunk regular there. My brother brushed it off his shoulders but the guy obviously wanted to start soemthing. So I was dancing and saw someone on the floor. It was my brother, I ran over and he had blood all over his face and was out.

He was out for 10 minutes and his gf was no where. I was sooooo mad. I was screaming at everyone, bawling, I yelled at the officers, bar people, and my friends.

I was scared. The story was that my brother saw him still talking to Rachel (thing) and my brother came over and put his arm around her and was like hey, this is my gf (not aggresive at ALL!) and the dude sucker punched him in the face. My bro has a stitch on the outside where he got hit, 1 missing tooth and the bottom are all chipped, and stitches inside. He hit the floor hard and was transported to the hospital and I rode with him in the ambulance, not his thing, she came hours later. They did a cat scan and showed bleeding in his brain from hitting the floor. Ive never been so angry, scared, idk so many emotions.

But we had so many people on our side...they arrested him yesterday and we are pressing charges. I want to hit this guy so bad, he is lucky me and brother did not get a chance at him. He was just angry from the moment he was in the bar. He was looking for a fight and in oregon you get 7 yrs minimum for this ish..

Anyways yesterday was supposed to be me and my sisters bake day (like you Heather) but I'm getting off early today to do since yesterday I couldnt even do anything..

Oh and in the morning I hadnt really ate anything all week I was going to the restroom and I blacked out and hit the floor.

But I'm all good...

Comment #12

Ash- ::GLOMPS:: I miss you. I know you're going through a lot. Do your best but remember you're not invincible. Still human and you can't do it all. Your dad appreciates you being there for him, I'm sure. Good vibes coming your way..

Mer- If you got me a sand art kit for Christmas I would be ecstatic! Kids are ungrateful sometimes but it's ok. The thought was there and he'll look back on it years from now and realize what a little brat he was..

Hey Tay- Good to see you!.

TiffI'm waiting for the date update!.

Heather The pictures turned on so purty! I'm going to upload some on to Facebook...one day. LOL.

Melly- Congrats to being a full time student! I'm so proud of you! You can do it; I had 3 jobs by the time I graduated from college. I go to school full time for my master's now, work full time and have the familia to take care of. It's all possible, if it's what you really want!.

Everyone else: HI!! DWJCP isn't here....its so nice. But they're saying she may come back in 4 weeks. From what I heard, it won't happen. She's too much of a liability for us. Now the campus director is overseeing us, which is fine. She's like a big Frankenstein lady...only way to describe her.

I'll keep you all posted on any futher developments, but for right now, I'm enjoying the shortened work week...

Comment #13

Melly.

- Thats horrible! So sorry to hear about that! Glad he okay. You still need to get your @$$ to the drs pronto! You've not been feeling well for awhile and you need to go!.

X-Tina.

- I posted the date update a little higher on the tread. I promise!.

Ashlee.

- Sorry you are going through so much right now. Dont overspread yourself k. Did you see the recipe I posted a week or two ago about the milk shakes we made my granddaddy to gain weight? If not let me know and I will PM you laters...

Comment #14

Thanks ash and tiff.

Ash- That is a tradition in our fam. Its so fun.

I do it for all holidays too! Im glad you enjoyed it.

Tiff- Just be straight with him, sooner the better. He will get over it adn if he likes you he will be happy to be a friend.

TayTay- SO sweet of Ryan! Yay. Your weekend sounds fun! Congrats on not gainign (dont take it for granted tho!!!! LOL)..

Comment #15

Tiff.

- It's really tough when you can sense clearly that they are attracted to you and you have not one spark of desire for more than friendship. There is really NO way of letting someone down or telling them you arent attracted to them that doesn't hurt but...my tried and tested method is to tell them that they physically & personality-wise remind you too much of a previous serious BF and you don't wanna take how you feel about that other person out on someone new. What can they say to that? They can't change how they look and they can't try to be a different personality than the one they have..

Tay - Sounds like you had a fun weekend! And the fact that Ryan surprised you with a tree has reassured me that somewhere, somehow there are still men who have a heart in the world!!! It seriously made me smile from ear-to-ear for you!!!!..

Comment #16

Tiffany.

- I did see that recipe! Went out that very day and bought my dad the super wide bendy straws. My mom said the Dr gave them a yummy powdered super-high protein shake my dad has been making in the mornings with whole milk but any extreme temperature (very cold or very hot) hurts his mouth. My mom has been making them a head of time and letting them sit to room temperature before he drinks them. Thanks again!.

Xtina.

- Aww! Thanks! I know I can't do it all...but the Leo in me really wants me to try try try! lol I had a bit of a breakdown on Saturday sitting next to my dad asleep on the couch during my Aunt's annual Christmas party. He's lost well over 25 lbs in 5 weeks. He looks visibly thinner but his clothes are falling off his body. But having him see me, kiss me and tell me he loves me every single time we see each other feels like he wants to make sure he says it in case it's the last time. It's such a sweet and awesome thing but makes me SOOOOO sad too. It's overwhelming. Can a person just be whelmed? lol..

Comment #17

I have also asked the whelmed question! Can I just be whelmed? OR can I just whelm...

Comment #18

Melly.

- Everyone was laughing at me because I had SUCH a look of concentration on my face when I was decorating. My tongue was out and everything! I am SO sorry to hear about the fight and your brother. I am SOOOOOOOO confused as to why his GF was not at his side or in the ambulance!!!!!! That's irritating! As his sister, I can only imagine how hard that must have been for you. The blacking out thing must have been scary! I hope you are ok!!!!!!!!..

Comment #19

Mel- Did you punch out the Thing's teeth when she showed up hours later? I would've. So sorry to hear bout' your crazy weekend. BUT please take care of yourself!..

Comment #20

It's a line from Clueless and it's always stuck with me since I am a snarky beyotch at times!..

Comment #21

You know I'm the Clueless queen but I really didn't remember that until you just said it!!..

Comment #22

LOVE Clueless! But I thought it was from 10 things I hate about you? Maybe I have my movies mixed or maybe it's from both..

I've never really decorated cookies. We make cookies every year but never do the decorating cutouts. We do sprinkles sometimes!..

Comment #23

OMG! my apologies! You are right Tiffany! I had them mixed up....It IS 10 Things I Hate About You!..

Comment #24

Oh believe me...I wanted to. BUT it wasnt about her, it was about making sure my brother was ok...

Comment #25

We aren't doing cookies this year so I bought this little set at Walgreens for Xavier and I to do. It's 2 gingerbread cookies and comes with different colored icing and sprinkles. Xav and I had fun decorating and noming down some cookie..

But usually we do the full on cookie thing: make 3000 cookies and then make the icing and decorate and all that business. Tons of fun....and work, and mess. Too busy this year for it, that's for sure...

Comment #26

Ash.

- LOL! my high school roomie watched that movie EVERY night! No joke. I wanted to kill her after the 2nd month. I love the movie but enough is enough. I pretty much have it memorized!..

Comment #27

Hey Ashlee! *big bug hugs* about your Dad.

I know that some kids aren't taught to be greatful, it just really hurt our feelings. We don't have that great of a relationship with LB's mom, so we probably won't say anything. We just may not get him any gifts ever again. And if he asks why we'll tell him the truth..

OMG- you had never made decorated Christmas cookies before?.

That totally blows me away- did your mom just not like making them?.

Hey Christina! I loved sand art when I was a kid, and still wouldn't mind making some..

Hey Tay! He's 7. I know it's not the bestest gift ever, but we really did put thought in it and got it after he had so much fun with the bouncy ball kit..

Aww, that was so sweet of Ry!.

Hi Tiffany! I think his mom already knows he's a brat (he's been to 6 different schools prior to his current one). He spits on kids and throws pencils at school..

Bummer about the Xmas party- what was their problem?.

Also a bummer about no attraction to BT..

Hey Melly! I have no idea why LB would have thought we would buy him such an expensive gift- we don't even spend that much on each other! I told him that we just don't have that kind of money and that I had to save up money for months and use birthday money for my mini laptop- and I have a job!.

WOW, so sorry about your bro, that's terrible!..

Comment #28

Good morning loverlies!.

Melly-That sounds super scary! He's got a great sister though.

And yeah, I agree with the others, you've been feeling offyou need to get to a doc. Yay on schoool!!!.

I'm feeling really bad today. It's my first day off antibiotics. I don't think that has anything to do with it, but I feel like a truck ran me over. I just got Ivan on the bus and went back to sleep for a few hours. My joints are sore and the bathroom....let's not go there. I hate when I feel like this, it's 2 or 3 times a week and I cannot function.



We wrapped everything last night. We can't find this one game Sarah wants anywhere, so poor Mark has to brave the mall tonight after work to find it. I called last night and they said they had it. It's not a hot game either, I don't know why we couldn't find it. Do any of you feel like Christmas came really really fast? It's this Saturday already and I feel like I never got into the holiday groove..

Just wanted to say hey to y'all. I miss being on here more. Seems like life has taken me hostage, lol.....

Oh! I will be passing precal 1!! With a C, but still. I'll take it. A in art, and both geo and bio are high B/A territory. I'm uber happy with the grades. Looking forward to reading for fun (I'm reading a book on string theory right now and it's been months and I'm not done), and playing video games!.

EditMer, that sucks about LB, but it does happen sometimes. They want all these fancy expensive things and they don't really appreciate that something modest/inexpensive has been more thought out and could be way more fun and interactive than a new video game or electronic toy. I do that with Jackson. His dad usually gets him all the glitzy sought-after toys, and we get more interactive, intelligent or creative toys. It might not make for the best reaction Christmas morning, but he's still playing with those other toys long after the game has been beaten and the batteries are dead in the other. Although we do buy a few toys just for squee value..

Comment #29

Hi Dawn!.

Tay- So cute of Ry to put up your tree for you!..

Comment #30

Ash- I made these last week for Jose.

Thanks girls! I will definately be making a appt soon..

Dawn- hugs, feel better!.

Mer, I guess it's how kids are raised. We never got anything through out the year, except bdays and christmas, we were always grateful and my mama told us to always be grateful for anything!..

Comment #31

Hey Dawn!.

I agree, Christmas came SUPER fast! Sorry you feel like poo today..

Congrats on your grades!.

That's awesome about Jackson enjoying your gifts more in the long run..

It's hard, I was taught to be appreciative of everything and I do get my feeling hurt when someone isn't after I give them something. My sister has even told me that I am the easiest person to buy for because I will like whatever I get. She told me it could be something that she thought was crappy but I will act like it was the best gift ever. I honestly don't think she's ever gotten me a crappy gift. I never lie, just tell the truth. It's the thought that counts anyway..

Melly- cute cookies & cupcakes!..

Comment #32

Hey Dawn!!!!!.

Merz.

- LOL. My friend that surprised me with the cookie making yesterday had a similar reaction. My parents usually host all of our different sides of the family Xmas events so we are always making the main meal and the more important sides. My uncle on one side and aunt on the other ALWAYS bring us all huge tubs of homemade Christmas cookies so it was always kinda their "thing" as a gift. This year the events will be hosted at a different house so my Mom is concerned she won't be doing enough but I keep telling her that everyone will understand...

Comment #33

Melly.

- You should consider a career in baked goods & cupcake decorating!!!!! You make the coolest stuff for people. SO sweet and thoughtful!..

Comment #34

Wow! I guess I annoyed my roommate with a movie too but at least mine was a funny cartoon with tons of awesome quotables (The Emperor's New Groove)..

Comment #35

Thanks Ash, I love doing it. I wish I made the cake stuff homemade but ehhhh I worked that day and delivered in a couple hours later.

A coworker gave us a tin filled with melt in your mouth cookies, cake balls, 7 layer bars, peppermint brownies, and other goodies! But we all got our own tin. I told her I named it "the tin of evil".

I will offer it to my family and freeze some things for later heheh..

Comment #36

LMAO on the "tin of evil".

Ooops, QODs on the way!..

2. What's your favorite type of Christmas cookie to make and/or eat?.

3. Do you ever pick up an extra gift just in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift?.

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift (example cheese and sausage from someone who KNEW you were a vegetarian, a known regift, chocolates from someone who knows you are dieting, etc.), what do you do or say?.

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

Comment #38

1. If could give one person ANYTHING for Christmas (and had the funds to do so), who would you buy for and what would you get?.

I would get Jason a new car. His is not doing so good and with two larger dogs we really need something bigger. He's been eyeing the Acura MDX..

2. What's your favorite type of Christmas cookie to make and/or eat?.

To eat- the peanutbutter with a hershey's kiss. To make- the decorated sugar cookies..

3. Do you ever pick up an extra gift just in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift?.

I mentioned this to Jason and he thought it was ridiculous. I think it's a great idea to wrap a nice candle or something like that. That way if someone gives you something you would have something for them!.

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift, what do you do or say?.

I thank them and depending on the person, I might tell them I'll be giving it away (I did this to my MIL when she gave me chocolates after I had just started MF. I gave it back). If it's someone who I don't feel comfortable doing that with, I'll just thank them and regift to someone outside their social circle. Or bring it to work if it's food..

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

4 people. I know what I'm going to get 1 of them, have a list from an Xmas exchange for 2 of them, and am clueless on the 4th..

Bonus- L&G?.

Leftovers..

No, but it's a great idea..

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift (example cheese and sausage from someone who KNEW you were a vegetarian, a known regift, chocolates from someone who knows you are dieting, etc.), what do you do or say?.

I regift it and never tell them.

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

I have to pick up one small thing for my bff and get some more things for jose..

Bonus- L&G?.

Blech...

Comment #40

Checking in!.

Wow! Drama, drama, drama!!!.

Where do I begin?.

Melly, I admire your ability to stay under control but Thing would have at least gotten a smack across the face! And if you don't take yo' cute little @ $ $ to the doctor I am going to make a trip just to beat you down for not going! Nuh,uh! I don't wanna hear it! G-O!!! And stop playin'! Ya got me?!?!.

Ash and Dawn, (((HUGS)))! You both need them!.

Tiff, sorry you're not attracted to the mister..

Mer, LB is ungrateful! He obviously has no idea what it means to receive gifts. BRAT!.

Tay Tay!!!!!!! So glad to see you! We missed you!.

Am I missing someone?? Sorry if so. oh, hi Xtina! Glad you are at least temporarily rid of the psycho!.

I had a great weekend. Hubby took me to get a new phone Saturday. I got the BB Torch and I love it!! I didn't do anything until late last night. I made a few gifts. I was in the bed literally ALL DAY! Slept off and on. Felt so nice too! Now I've got a lot I need to do tonight.



ONLY TODAY AND TOMORROW ARE LEFT FOR MY GIVEAWAY!!! Make sure you show your face in the place (my blog) to enter!!!..

1. If could give one person ANYTHING for Christmas (and had the funds to do so), who would you buy for and what would you get?.

Hubby a brand new BMW of his choice..

2. What's your favorite type of Christmas cookie to make and/or eat?.

Don't have one to make, but I like to eat them all..

3. Do you ever pick up an extra gift just in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift?.

No..

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift (example cheese and sausage from someone who KNEW you were a vegetarian, a known regift, chocolates from someone who knows you are dieting, etc.), what do you do or say?.

Like Melly, I would regift it..

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

Just a few gifts here and there..

Bonus- L&G?.

???..

SheSHe- Thanks love. I really wish I could this week but it's so busy..

Update on my brother, they are pushing back his releasing due to them needing tests done because his heart is skipping beats...

Comment #43

Monday Questions of the Day!.

1. If could give one person ANYTHING for Christmas (and had the funds to do so), who would you buy for and what would you get?.

I'd pay the rent for a year for the building where my Aunt has her interior design business. She is the most caring, thoughtful person who puts everyone else before herself but not many people have money to pay interior decorators in this economy so her business is on the verge of bankruptcy. It would be a big relief off her shoulders and a nice reward for a person who does things for EVERYONE in our family without any expectation of thanks..

2. What's your favorite type of Christmas cookie to make and/or eat?.

It's a super soft ricotta cookie my Aunt makes with royal icing. Nummers!.

3. Do you ever pick up an extra gift just in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift?.

Nope. My mom does though. I am always afraid of that but never buy random things because I can't afford anything extra..

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift (example cheese and sausage from someone who KNEW you were a vegetarian, a known regift, chocolates from someone who knows you are dieting, etc.), what do you do or say?.

I still say thank you and do my best to appreciate the gesture. I usually try to find a new home for the thing I can't use/enjoy. I also remind myself that just because I am dieting doesn't mean they knew that or spitefully bought the item to tempt me..

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

3 people left to shop for but I have NO ideas. That's the worst!!!.

Bonus- L&G? taco salad..

Comment #44

Oh no Melly! Hope everything is ok..

Thanks She She!.

Today on Facebook, we're trading "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" quotes, one of my fave Xmas movies as you all know..

Monday Questions of the Day!.

1. If could give one person ANYTHING for Christmas (and had the funds to do so), who would you buy for and what would you get?.

I would just give a bunch of money to my parents to help pay for bills and stuff..

2. What's your favorite type of Christmas cookie to make and/or eat?.

Favorite to make are the sugar cookies with icing bc thats all we ever make. Favorite to eat chocolate chip.

3. Do you ever pick up an extra gift just in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift?.

Yes!! Im a planner by nature so I always have a few gifts on hand, just in case..

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift (example cheese and sausage from someone who KNEW you were a vegetarian, a known regift, chocolates from someone who knows you are dieting, etc.), what do you do or say?.

Just say thanks and either find someone who wants it or regift..

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

Im pretty much done, I think. Just need to wrap Xaviers presents and Tonys will be arriving over the next few days. We bought some really nice collage portrait things from the picture studio. I was really hoping theyd be here by Christmas for both sets of grandparents, but I dont think theyll make it in time. BOO!.

Bonus- L&G? Not sure..

I hope his heart gets healthy and that he gets released soon. your cupcake cakes were precious!!!! go ducks..

Katie.

, hope you got good meds!.

Comment #51

Monday Questions of the Day!.

1. If could give one person ANYTHING for Christmas (and had the funds to do so), who would you buy for and what would you get?.

Seems like i'm with mer and she on this one! i'd get ry a new car. he never, ever spends money on himself, and Falcon (his corolla) is in pretty rough shape....

2. What's your favorite type of Christmas cookie to make and/or eat?.

My friend linds (in PA) and I made peanut butter reindeer cookies which were fun! PB cookies that you shape into a reindeer head and put pretzel sticks for antlers and choco chips for eyes and nose. we threw in a couple red hots so we could have some rudolphs..

Love to eat peppermint bark!!!!!!.

3. Do you ever pick up an extra gift just in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift?.

I don't....

4. If someone gives you a truly thoughtless gift (example cheese and sausage from someone who KNEW you were a vegetarian, a known regift, chocolates from someone who knows you are dieting, etc.), what do you do or say?.

I always say thanks. i'd probably regift if I couldn't eat or use it. I don't feel bad about doing that at all. someone else will benefit! I hate letting things go to waste..

5. How much Christmas shopping do you have left?.

3 small gifts, and my childhood best friend's bday was this past weekend, so I have to get on that since i'll be seeing her over christmas!.

Bonus- L&G?.

WELL, now that i'm back on the Medifast wagon... probably fish of some sort and spinach!..

Comment #55

Taylor, your post must not have gone through. I haven't seen an email notification or anything on my blog dashboard. I know Jessica and Tiffany had some problems the other day posting. Not sure what it may be though...

Comment #56

Got your post, Taylor! Seems to be taking a really long time these days. Thanks, honey!..

Comment #57

She.

, just tried again. it said it'll be visible pending approval, so hopefully it went through this time!..

Comment #58

So, I finally saw Burlesque Friday night and I loved it. Not sure how everyone else feels about it but I thought it was a good story line even though it was predictable. I enjoyed the singing more than anything. Christina Aguilera has got some monster lungs. Geez! I'll never understand it. No one that tiny should have a voice that big! Sister girl can sing her @ $ $ off!!!..

Comment #59

Xtina- lol, thanks for the link, I'm reading posts on the site now..

Sheila- I want to see that movie but I'll probably wait for Netflix...

Comment #60

I never go to the movies anymore and I would have to bribe Tony to go see that movie with me. I, too, will probably wait for Netflix to have it. Don't think I'm lame but I kinda wanna see "Gulliver's Travels". I LOVE Jack Black!! He's so funny and awesome...

Comment #61

I love all of you guys! if I was rich, id pay for everyone to meet somewhere and have a girls weekend. You all are a rock in my life, definately..

SheShe- Ive loved Christina Aguilera for so long. I absolutely love her..

Comment #62

I love you too Melly!.

I would also totally pay for a Pin Up Meet Up if I had the dough..

Time to go home, hope you all have a great night!..

Comment #63

Nite, Mer!.

I would do the same...pay for us all to meet up somewhere for a girls weekend. That would be so much fun!!!.

And I love you too, Melly! You're my West Coast Suga!.

I'm going to buy Burlesque when it comes out on DVD. But I'm a big fan of musicals like that..

Alright girls. I'm out. Tomorrow is my last workday for the year and I can hardly wait!!!!..

Comment #64
