let's get this thing going...

i think my lack of blog posts has been due to the overwhelming feeling of things to blog about... our disastrous trip to london being one of them.  so, in an effort to keep this thing alive i am just going to skip all of that and move on.  clean slate.  stay tuned...

RIP special christmas decor

i have a sad story.  after searching everywhere in our house and in several other houses, our box of christmas tree decor is missing.  last year i bought the most adorable little 1960s angel with big blond bouffant hair and a little yellow dress.  she belonged with me and i was excited to give her a home.  with her as inspiration, i made, bought, and borrowed handmade or vintage looking ornaments.  among the many was an ornament made from the champagne corks we drank at my parents' house after we got engaged, brightly colored paper chains my sister and i made many christmases ago, and the first ornament my parents bought for their very first christmas tree.  sadly, the only picture we have is a terrible one, but i know it has all our christmas tree treasures on it and it is now so special to me.

christmas eve 2009 with the pastor and baby little dog         

i can't bring myself to buy other ornaments yet ( i am still beyond hopeful and not ready to give up that they might be found).  however, i did adopt another very special angel that belongs with me.  she is being shipped today.

happy christmas mate...

15 days and counting till london... i can't wait!

i also can't seem to get any work done, but can only seem to look at maps of london.

this saturday should be pretty crazy.  team o come all ye faithful (gabe, stephanie, and myself) are running the jingle bell 5k.  should be interesting considering i got sick and my training maxed out at 1.53 miles.  how do i get myself into these messes? remember this? the jingle bell should be an experience of the same caliber.

in other news...

we got a christmas tree!

it is still undecorated and the little dog won't stop licking it.

the mums in the bathtub are dead and i am hoping to get mini christmas trees for it.

life is good.

i just realized today that in my "about me" section it says, "daydreaming about living in the city again" and i realized that i am so lucky that has become reality.  and as i was thinking that, i started thinking about how much i love my city, my new house( i am never moving),my friends, my family, my little dog, and the pastor.  we are so lucky to have all these things and eachother. even though the pastor and i will always dream about wining the megamillions and running away to paris, i wouldn't change a thing about our life.

found this picture form a long time ago and it made me smile.
