It’s FRIDAY!!!!

I should post a link to: “It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday”…but I’m not that mean. ¬†ūüôā

Lauren from The Little Things we do blog has a sick baby…so there are no normal Fill in the Blanks for today. ¬†So I’m going to make up my own. ¬†She did link up with somebody else but it’s a Europe/USA t hing…and I’ve never been to Europe or watched movies from Europe so that post would be pretty boring for you to read. ¬†ūüôā ¬†So here goes mine. ¬†Feel free to copy, paste and blog ūüôā


1) ¬†Book I am Currently reading (Christmas or not):¬†Cross Roads by William P. Young. ¬†(The guy who wrote The Shack). ¬†It’s ok so far….maybe I should stop reading it at night so I can enjoy it more.

2) ¬†A Christmas movie I recently watched:¬†Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer—the original one…the old animated one.

3) My favourite Christmas song:¬†What child is this? ¬†As long as it’s done beautifully….I love a good female singer on this song.

4)  My favourite Christmas snack is: Macaroons (the kind you make)

5)  Favourite Christmas activity: Sledding with my family.

6) Favourite Christmas post I ¬†have seen so far:¬†Oh you just have to check out Rachel’s link at Following in my shoes. ¬†She has this tradition where she does a North Pole breakfast every year! ¬†Go look at it now…you must! ¬†It’s amazing!!! ¬†I definitely want to do this with my family.

7) ¬†A new Christmas family tradition I have started:¬†Elf on the Shelf. ¬†Yup ours arrived today. ¬†I’m excited.

That’s it from me for this week…have a great weekend everybody! ¬†Enjoy it with your family!!

Again, I am such a slacker…but it’s been a busy couple of days in this old household. ¬†Thursday night hubby and I had an information meeting for adoption….got a sitter who picked up little E from preschool for us and took him out for supper (super thanks to Michelle)….we get up there only to find out that the dude who was supposed to open up the meeting room didn’t show up. ¬†Needless to say the social worker was not impressed….and we were slightly disappointed as this meeting was required for us to go any further in the adoption process. ¬†However, it will be rescheduled so all is not lost. ¬†Then Friday night hubby and I went out for a much needed date. ¬†So…today is Saturday and Fill in the Blanks Saturday it is. ¬† ūüôā ¬†So…long story short..here it is..enjoy ¬†ūüôā ¬†As always, I link up with The Little Things We do


1. ¬†“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is…”¬† ¬†smiling, being polite and wishing others, who may just be slightly frazzled this time of year, a Merry CHRISTMAS!
2.  The holiday season is  a great time to be with family, eat good food and celebrate the birth of our Saviour.
3.¬†¬†When it comes to holiday decorating…¬†¬†¬†¬†I would love to do more…but this year I fear that my dog will eat most of it. ¬†I’m taking bets on whether or not my Christmas tree will make it through this Christmas season with the dog and kids around it. ¬†ūüôā
4. The thing I look forward to most about the holidays is  getting together with family and friends.
5.¬†My favorite holiday tradition is¬†¬†decorating my Christmas tree with my whole family. ¬†It might not look perfect like all those you see in pictures…BUT we all did it together and that’s what makes it perfect in my mind.
6.¬†This year my Christmas plans include¬†visiting hubby’s family, then Christmas day evening heading to my mom’s for Christmas on boxing day morning…then doing some boxing day shopping at the mall. ¬†Heading home after a few days. ¬† Usually we stay a bit longer…but we are hoping to take a trip in January/February…so we need to save our time off for that.
7.¬†¬†My favorite holiday food is¬†¬†TURKEY and my mom’s stuffing…that’s the best!
What about you?  Enjoy your Christmas with family and friends this year!!

Friday is here!  That means a wonderful weekend with my family and my church family.  It also means a Fill in the Blank blog post.  I link up with The Little Things we Do.  Check out her blog.

1. ¬†My best quality is¬† ¬†you never have to guess what I’m thinking. ¬†I just tell you. ¬†This could be good or bad.
2. ¬†One of my less flattering qualities is¬†I’m not good with change….(not the coin type)
3.¬†¬†I’d rather be¬†¬†¬† reading .
4. Something I have been challenged with lately is  to spend my change (coins) more wisely.  A blog post will be coming on this soon.
5. I am looking forward to  our trip with Little E to Florida sometime in the near future.  We almost have all our money saved up!
6. A super random factoid about me is  I have to make sure the oven is turned off completely before I go to bed.  I check it about four or five times.
7.  I want to  spend more time focused on others (particularly Little E and my friends) and less on me.Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Blessing: ¬†I’m off today at 3 instead of 5:30!!!!

As always…another segment of Fill in the Blank Friday. ¬†I link up to the blog The Little Things We do.

1. ¬†One thing I plan on doing to relax this weekend is¬†¬† ….nothing. ¬†I think this weekend is going to be far from relaxing. ¬†Although I may have time to read a few pages of my book. ¬†ūüôā
2.¬†¬†A big pet peeve of mine is ¬†(haha where to start) I guess for right now it would be people who smoke outside of public places when there is a no smoking policy. ¬†Even worse when it’s people who work at the store.
3.  I am really loving  My new slippers I got from Walmart.  Nice and Warm inside and look like Toms on the outside.  I wore them out last night.
4. The rain is   one of my top five favourite things in life.
5. My favorite girly indulgence is  PURSES.
6.¬†A song I always get stuck in my head is¬†Anything by Tobymac cause that’s what I’ve been listening to. ¬†Or the Theme song to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. ¬†Lol I ¬†know…not the same thing but my son has been watching that lately.
7.¬†¬†The best cure for stress is¬†¬†a nice hot bath with bubbles. ¬†Then getting out to a nice warm towel and then a nice warm fuzzy housecoat.That’s it! ¬†Enjoy your weekend! ¬†I’ll see you again on Monday!

Blessing of the day:  Being able to spend an afternoon out with my boy doing some Halloween shopping.

It’s Friday!!! ¬†And That means it’s Fill in the Blank Friday with Lauren at her blog: The Little Things We do
1.¬†¬†¬†The holiday season is¬†¬† ¬†more special than last year ¬†because Little E is really getting excited about it! ¬†We put up some decorations today and he was jumping around the room saying “Santa comes soon!”

2.¬†¬†¬†Snow makes me¬†¬†¬†cold. ¬†I hate snow. ¬†I like it when it’s falling from the sky but when it stays on the ground for endless years then I don’t like it. ¬†However Little E loves it….soooo guess I’ll have to live with it. ¬†ūüôā
3.¬†¬†The best comfort food to eat when it’s cold out is ¬†¬† Hot chocolate and toast. ¬†Love it!
4. Winter is the best time for  cuddling up with a warm blanket and a good book!
5.  I can hardly wait for    having a night out with hubby to do some Christmas shopping for Little E.  First time we have gone without him.
6.  When it comes to holiday gifts I prefer to  give them.  I love watching people open gifts!!!
7.  If I were to rate my excitement about the holiday season on a scale from 1-10, I would say I am at about a    8 or a 9. Super excited for Little E to be excited for Christmas this year!  And also to see Family and friends!
What about you??  Feel free to fill in some blanks of your own in the comment section!
Blessing: Some unexpected gifts came in the mail this week which made things a little easier!

It’s time again for Fill in the Blanks Friday! ¬†I got this idea from Rebecca who got it from Lauren at this blog: ¬†http://thelittlethingswedo.blogspot.com/

So here are my answers:

1.   A nervous habit I have is     picking at my fingernails.  Gotta stop that one!!!

2.¬†¬†¬†Something that makes me sad is¬†¬†¬†that there are so many children out there looking for love in our foster care homes…and so many people not being able to have babies. ¬†Let’s put the two together and create happy homes!
3.  Today I am thankful for    the beautiful sun, family and friends to laugh with.
4.¬†My favorite room in my house is: my living room. ¬†It’s the only room in the whole house (beside Little E’s room) that is more modern looking than the rest. ¬†It may not be done…but it definitely looks better than it did before!
5.¬†¬†I can’t stand¬†¬†¬† people who don’t put new toilet paper on the toilet paper holder when the old one runs out. ¬†Seriously! ¬†It doesn’t even take a minute! ¬†DOOOOOOOOO ¬†IT!
6.  If I had an extra $100 to spend on whatever I wanted today I would    go buy some Christmas presents.
7.  The last person I hung out with was   my hubby and Little E.  We went to the library and got some good used books!
So…how about you…either fill in the blanks in the comments if you want…or put this on your own blog. ¬†I’d love love love to see your comments!
Blessing:  My sweet boy who makes me giggle each and every morning!

It’s called Fill in the Blank Fridays.

1.   My favorite new blog of the moment is    http://thriftydecorchick.blogspot.com/ .

2.   Something I am thankful for is   that God protected my husband this week at work  .
3.¬†¬†Something that made me laugh this week was :¬†http://youtu.be/_YQpbzQ6gzs ¬†I know it’s been around facebook but it just makes me giggle.
4. An item that is currently on my wish list is   new bed sheets without holes in them!
5.¬†¬†I am excited about¬†¬†¬†¬†having my husband home today. ¬†It’s nice to have a day of relaxing with him. ¬†Feels like we haven’t spent much time together lately.
6.¬†¬†If I were a color I would be ¬†¬†¬†¬†red…cheery…happy.
7.¬†¬†My favorite way to spend a chilly fall day is by ¬†¬†relaxing with a good book in bed….but that never happens. ¬†That would be my ideal day.
