I Got A Boob Job

J/k, but seriously...the new birth control has filled me out in a few of the wrong places, but ALL of the right places. I don't know how long it will last, but I will enjoy Will's new interest in his old toys while keepin' the love alive. Plus I had to find some way to distract him and get his mind off the thirty maps he had to trace to get ready for his next leg of flight training. I have to say, these maps are the devil, and if I never see a lightboard again, I will be happy.

+ At the end of today, I will have Will all to myself for the next FIFTEEN days. Well, technically I have to share him with the fam for Christmas, but at least there will be no work or stress for fifteen whole days. The Army most certainly takes him away more than I like, but I sure am grateful when he gets two weeks off for the holidays.

+ I have been trying to be 'good' this holiday season, but momma makes cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning, and one turns down egg nog, Christmas Eve dinner, or Christmas morning cinnamon rolls. This is totally going to be my face when the food comes out:

+ It's funny, all I'm really craving is ham. I think we might have to make one for our mini Christmas we will have when we get back from the 'rentals. Will makes some honey mustard glaze that is BOMB.COM, and I can't live without it in the near future. Honey...take note.

+ Last but not least, we have a date with our real estate agent to look at houses Monday! We've actually gotten pre-approved by two financial institutions, so now we just have to figure out which to go with. Have any of you gone through USAA for a Traditional Mortgage? I've heard they take a long time, which isn't ideal, but they are giving us a better APR and what appears to be lower fees. Any experience good or bad would be great!

Now That...Was A Holiday Party!

So hi...I think I'm finally over my hangover. Damn Apple Pie Moonshine, and the usual "I'm to old for this ish." However, it was worth every bit of it! We started the shenanigans Friday night taking Dani to Frogz, and enjoyed a nice family dinner. Trying to keep it 'low key'.

Although I had been prepping and cooking for three days, after everyone went to bed, I was still sewing our skirts for the party and slaving away in the kitchen. I think that's pretty typical when it comes to Holiday feasts, but I still thought I was crazy to be standing in the kitchen in my stockings until midnight. The good news, is that it was aaaall worth it. Turkey stock from scratch, brining a turkey for two days, homemade gravy, cranberry salsa, meatballs, and cowboy caviar were my additions to the meal, and I am happy to pat myself on the back. The turkey was moist and no one got food poisoning, so I call it a win.

I know, I know, it doesn't look all bloggerific. I would have 'staged' it better, but we were at Joel's house. It was an act of Congress to get all the food and necessities there, so how it looked was the last thing on my mind. As a matter of fact, we were still sewing my skirt while I was cooking gravy in the middle of the party. Multi-tasking at it's finest.

The only thing better than the food were the party games. We played Gift Wrap With Mittens On, Stack The Nuts, and a Marshmallow Stocking Toss, which quickly led to a marshmallow fight. I think there was also a ping pong ball fight, but I have no clue what inspired that.

And since you should always share costumes with the world, we moved our soiree to the local bar. Here is the only picture I thought to take of our matching outfits. 
Mine = 'First Things First, I'm The Realest', Will = 'Santa's Favorite Ho', and Dani = 'Don't Be A Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin'". The best part is that Will picked out his green striped pants and he can't wait to wear them  golfing. I just like the way they accent his bootay ;)

Cheers to a successful Holiday party, a hangover that wasn't as bad as I anticipated, and the fact that it's all over. I made Will promise that he wouldn't let me take on anything like this for awhile, but I don't think he believes I meant it. I wonder why?

I'm On Pins And Needles!!

For two reasons, actually.

#1 On this day, the twelfth of December, 2014, we will be receiving our letter of Pre-approval to start the home buying process! They've told us we have awesome credit, zero debt, and great assets, so we are golden, but it's still crazy to me that they will just hand over hundreds of thousands of dollars! EEK! I still can't believe I'm allowed to drink alcohol or stay out past curfew, so this just seems crazy to me. Yes, I know I'm 29, but I don't feel 29, and my husband sure as heck doesn't seem mature enough... Joke's on them, I guess.

#2 My BFF is on her way here!!

We have family dinner tonight at one of our favorite places and an Ugly Holiday Sweater party tomorrow, so the shenanigans will be over flowing this weekend! Hey, if the mortgage company gives us a bunch of money, we will add celebrating that to the list too. It's on like Donkey Kong, and I couldn't be more excited!! Now to tackle my to-do list...oy vey.

Don't forget to order your Datevitation Coupon book by Saturday (the 13th) to get it on time for Christmas! Use code 'PERCEPTION' to get $10 off your order!

Will, You Are NOT Allowed To Read This Post

Will and I watch shows where people hate their in-laws, and we just can't fathom it because our families are pretty amazing. We jump at the chance to hang out with all of them, and they love us so much that they get tattoos in our honor. Well, technically it's only his mom that got tattoos in our honor, but I'll take it. See the pretty butterfly?
She says that's me.

And if that wasn't proof enough that she loves me, she found a fabulous antique steam trunk for me! We looked at some last time they were in town, and a birthday later, it's aaaall mine. It's just so awesome, that I still get giddy when I see it. I tell you this, because I'm pretty sure it's going to show up in a lot of blog pictures in the near future. Like today.
