Thanksgiving Traditions...

Andrew and I were able to sleep in for the first time in I don't know how many months... Honestly that is what I was looking forward to the most. Andrew and I were planning on just relaxing all day and watching Harry Potter? ( I have never seen them). As we were relaxing in bed we decided we should start thinking of traditions we would like to have with our future familiy... Within a few minutes I had a wrapped present in my hands with a request from Andrew to open it... he decided that we can open one present early on Thanksgiving as part of our "new tradition". I think it is just hard for us to keep surprises.
Regardless... I proceeded to open my present , inside the book " Overcoming Anxiety"... yeah I was wondering too. I opened it up and Andrew had carved out a square inch in the center that held a beautiful 2 ct. pave diamond ring! I love it, I posted a picture for you all to see!

Andrew also got to open a present. He actually helped me pick this one out so he knew he was getting it. He got to open his brand new HP laptop computer. Don't worry he still has plenty to open still for Christmas.

I hope everyone has an excellent Thanksgiving! All my love to my friends and family!

Here are some more pictures from Christmas!

Me decorating the tree.... and coach in the background with his ugly hair cut.

Okay, turn your head sideways.... that is my tree topper! It is suspended... I am full of great ideas!

This is one of the stockings Collette and I created! Look how crafty we are... I will post pictures of my blue and green ones when they are completed!

See the ribbons coming down the sides of the tree? Those are attached to my magnificent star!

This is my favorite part.... Pretty.

Of course here is Coach, how cute.

Half way there.

I set a goal exactly a month a go to burn 1000 calories a day through work out... I did it! Today I completed my 30th day and I have a goal to continue on for 30 more... I am concentrating now on a few pounds I have to lose instead of muscle tone... anyone feel like joining in on a 30 day challenge ?

Sexy or Stupid ?

Andrew has grown up on motorcycles... So, I should not have been surprised when we bought one this past summer. After an afternoon of riding he came back and asked if I wanted to see pictures of his riding.... I was a bit skeptical but impressed. He took me out later and demonstrated his skills. I was a bit in shock he is quite good and his driving is very controlled. Here are a few pictures of my Man. Still makes me nervous though.

Today is one of those days that are just plain old good. I woke up got a nice little work out in, went to church, came home to a clean house and made cookies! To top it off I am listening to Josh Groban christmas music... Yup thats right it is November which means the holidays are here as far as I am concerned! So Andrew and I are going to play Dr. Mario after we take a nap who knows I may just work on a quilt or a drawing later. I love relaxing!

Oh by the way for all those familiar with the Twilight phenomena I am totally and "Alice" lol I found that fitting. Who are you ! ?
