I will update to tell you what happens! :)

Our first Christmas married :)

Hey all!

Here is a recap of the glorious day's events with coordinating pictures:

We woke up at about 7am and I jumped up and down on the bed yelling "Christmas Time" until I got Nick out of bed. Then, I started a pot of water for hot Chocolate and got our presents put on the table from under the tree. I let Nick open his first, and boy was he surprised. I got him Assassin's Creed, a video game for XBox 360. I also got him a padfolio for his work, and a basket full of stuff to go on a picnic. He got me Super Mario Galaxy, the TV series Band of Brothers, and the soundtrack from the movie Rainman. We sipped on hot chocolate and tested out our games.
Nick was happy to open his presents! :)

Then, we headed over to my parents house to give them their gifts and in turn got spoiled with gifts. I can't even mention everything, it was so much good stuff! :) After hanging out there for a while, we jetted back home so I could frost the cake I made for Christmas lunch, and then headed over to my Grandma's house. Over there, we met up with not only my family, but my Aunt, Cousin, Uncle, Step-Aunt, and Grandma. We ate a yummy lunch of ham, potatoes, brocolli, rolls, etc etc. Then, opened more presents and hung out for a bit. Oh, and guess what? Nick hadn't EVER done a wishbone wish!!! My grandma had one from the turkey from thanksgiving, and let Nick and I do it. It was so much fun, and of course I won. :PNick and I getting ready to pull the wish bone, so exciting!

Then, that night, we ate miso soup for our first Christmas dinner... how unique!!!! And then, went to Heather and Jason's house to watch Ratatoulli. It was cute. :) What a wonderful first Christmas, with my wonderful husband Nicholas. :) Mmm, miso soup!

A sad observation

So, I decided to go through my music tonight, erase what was currently on my i-pod nano and restart fresh. There were a lot of songs with negative memories behind them. Does that make sense at all? So, I have just over 2000 songs in my itunes library, quite a bit if I do say so myself. Well, I surprised myself to find out that out of those 2033 songs, I only find 620 worthy to put on my i-pod! Only 1/4 of my music is actually listened to on a regular basis. And don't think I am close minded to music. I have anything from oldies to rap to country to pop to rock on there. I even made sure to put about 50 new songs on that sounded good to add to my list. I advise anyone out there to go through their music... you'd be surprised at how much of it is garbage. Ta ta for now!

Laugh, Cry, and Laugh some more....


Our Charlie Brown Christmas tree

It's our first Christmas, and last week we put up our tree. We have it all decorated and lit up, and it's definitely cute. :) The only thing about it that is non traditional is the fact it is totally curved. We had to prop up the base with towels, and turn it so it looks semi straight. Hehe, its interesting. :) What a perfect first Christmas for us as a married couple!!!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Surprised with some of my favorite things!

Ok, so I had been having a cruddy morning, and had to go down to school to take a final. That made the morning even worse. I snapped at Nicholas multiple times, and felt like crap on the way down to school. I was tired, and cranky, and stuck in traffic.

Once I got to school, my final went awesome. My teacher wrote me a wonderful note showing how much she appreciated me and how special I was. I got a peppermint frapp from starbucks. Mmm caffeine. Oh, and did I mention Nicholas had been writing me loving text messages all morning long. I am so blessed to have a husband who continues to show you love even when you are in a snappy mood and not being very nice to him. :)

So, I walk in the door and what do I see?

My lovely husband has bought me a cute little pot of flowers (so they stay alive and I can keep them forever!) that include roses and carnations. He also got me a card that says he loves me with all his heart. And to top it all off, he got me a whole box of chocolates. What an amazing man!! :) Oh, and to make the day even better he took time out of his work day to take me to get yummy submarine sandwiches from our local deli. AMAZING! :) I love him with all my heart, and am so blessed to have stumbled upon such an awesome man.

That's all for now. I love him, for sure!

Update on

We ended up buying a brand new Tivo remote for 99 cents (and 5 dollar shipping and handling). Sweetness! The Woot-off is over. Hope everyone had fun!


Ok, there is this FREAKING AWESOME SITE called that has ridiculously good deals on one item a day. But, guess what? Today they are having a woot off, which means they have great deals all day long. As soon as one item sells out they put up another one! How sweet is that! :) Needless to say, I am going to be monitoring this constantly all day long (Thanks Lover) and seeing if there are any good things. :P

I will keep you updated if I buy something! :) Woot!!!!

My first haircut as a married woman

So, I know there are tons of first for newlyweds. One that happened today was my first haircut being married. I am quite happy with the result, and Nicholas loves it :) YAY. I am gonna test it out tonight when we go to the movies (which is another first all in itself).

Tell me what you think.
