Girls Night Out!

Last night I went out with my BFF Danielle! We haven't seen each other since May! She flew in from Boston for the holidays and spent the night at our house. We went out downtown and made a few stops down memory lane! I love this girl and wish we could spend more time together! (hint, hint)

Christmas At My Parents House

Guess I've been MIA lately! I've been soooooo busy getting ready for Christmas! There's been shopping, wrapping, shopping, decorating, making x-mas cards, sending the cards and making cards for a New Year's Eve get together at our house! Here are some pictures from Christmas at my parents house. Tomorrow we leave for Nashville to go to Dustin's parents house! Be back Wednesday and I hope to post some pictures while I'm there!

Thanksgiving 2007

These pictures are a little late, but it's better then never! Dustin and I spent Thanksgiving in Nashville at his parents.

This picture is Dustin's Mom and Grandma cooking.

This is Dustin and his other Grandma getting food ready for the table! Yummy!

Dustin, his brother Drew, and of course Diesel!
This is Dustin's Grandpa holding Diesel on the right and McGyver (Dustin's parents dog) on the left!
Dustin's Mom and I got matching coats on black Friday! Aren't they so cute!
In this picture we are at the airport on our way home. Diesel was cuddling on Dustin's lap. The flight to Nashville was Diesel's first flight! He did great! The two of them look pretty tired after a long weekind!

My first post! This is kinda scary being able to just write whatever I want on here! Well, today I finally got around to putting up Christmas decor including the tree. I started out this morning going to get lights to put on the outside of the house. This is what it looked like outside...

SCARY! Some how Dustin and I managed to get to the store and get our lights. After I dropped Dustin off at home, I headed out into the blizzard AGAIN to go get an artificial tree and some ornaments.

Last night I stopped at Farm & Fleet and picked up a few ornaments and a white pointsetta for the kitchen table, it looks gorgeous!

Here are a few pictures of putting up the tree, the ornaments before they went on the tree and the final tree. I picked green, brown, a little silver, and a little pink for the tree this year. I love it!

That's my little doggie Diesel that keeps popping in and out of pictures!! Isn't he so cute! He has his sweater on to keep him warm when he has to go outside! Speaking of, today was his first encounter with snow, I don't think he like it very much! It seemed like his little paws got cold quick and there was so much snow he couldn't even walk thru it! Being the nice mom that I am, I shoveled him a little path into the snow! Ok, back to the tree pictures!
That's the tree all lite up! It looks so pretty!
