Almost a New Year

Here are a few of the pictures from Holidays. It's been such a great time for the Carter family.  We have enjoyed spending time together. 
Mid December we were able to meet my brand new great niece Campbell. The Diva's favorite phrase is she needs to "hijack that baby."

December 23rd was Kevin's Mothers birthday.  We had a party for her at our house. We still can not get her to tell us how old she is.  We think she maybe around 71, but she gives you this look and will tell you she is 39... her youngest son (Kevin) is 45, so for some reason I tend to think that is not her *true* age.

Christmas Eve was a lot of fun, we baked cookies for Santa and had a great time with the Hollington Clan. Fiesta Rice soup and Creamy Chicken Enchiladas were a compete hit.  Opening presents was not a bad deal either.

 Christmas Day rolled in and we had a great day.  Here are a few of the 3 of us.

Now that we are in between News Years and Christmas and I am on *STAYCATION* we are home and having a serious Harry Potter marathon and being lazy as can be.  I hope your holidays were as great as mine.  Happy New Year.  MUAH!!!!

Kitchenaid Mixer!

Kitchenaid mixer, how I covet you.  Kevin continually says you think you are more important than you are. He says you are completely overpriced.  I do not think such, however.
Isn't it pretty, I think it should live at my house, don't you?  Happy Friday everyone!!!

Hump Day

Personally I am not the kind of person that celebrates Hump day. I mean it's Wednesday, sure we are on the downhill slide of the work week. However, Wednesday usually has the ability to make me crazy. All I can think about is I have so much to accomplish at work before I can leave it all behind on Friday. Or I have a lot to accomplish at home before I can make the weekend a time to relax a reality.

So my answer to Hump Day is where a killer outfit and great shoes.  Both of those will get you over those Hump Day blues.  Since it's winter outside and the high is only 53 degrees (which funny enough it is 52 degrees right now), boots is the answer.

Tormenting... I mean Shopping with Kevin

Last nIght, Kevin and I had date night.  It was a lot of fun.  The Diva stayed with her BFF and off we went.  Well he asked me what I needed to do and I told him well, shopping would make me happy.  Two hours and multiple store later, we bought very few things.  Michael Kors, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Coach, Dooney, Calvin Klein all had things I needed.  Kevin, however did not agree with me.  So in the end we bought the Diva some stuff and ate a steak from the Outback and was home by 9:30.  Party Animals aren't we?  LOL
Here's 2 photos from last night.
