Peace Out

Just wanted to let you all know that I'll be signing out for at least a week. I'm flying to B-town tomorrow evening and be there till Sunday. Don't think I'll be doing much blogging. Had a good time at both of my holiday parties this weekend. The food at our therapy party was great: meatballs, chicken wings, bacon-wrapped water chestnuts, cheese dip, spinach and artichoke dip, taco dip, veggie pizza, deviled eggs, kuchen, and another dessert. It was all delicious. At the employee Christmas party the night before, I won a bottle of Hpnotiq. So I mixed that with champagne and that was my cocktail last night - good stuff. Oh and we had jello shots too, yum!

I worked today, for about 6 hours. Then I also work Monday, Karin the other SLP (my boss) will work Tues and Wed, and neither of us have to work on Friday, since I worked Sun. Pretty sweet deal! I finished packing tonight, now relaxing on the couch with husband and dog. Bear gets to go to Dog Day Getaway this week while we're gone. And he gets a special lil treat Friday, cuz his BFF Guinness is gonna be there over the weekend too. They will be so excited.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
I'll leave you with these pics of Bear, cuz that's what I do best!
I'm crazy, bitches!
Dad and Bear hugging. Apparently Dad bores Bear.
Happy Holidays to everyone! Hope you are safe and merry. POB

Done, bitches...

...with my puzzle. And here it is.

It was a lot of work, but it was fun. Now that I've had my puzzle fix I'm good for prob like another year.

So, ever since Steven and Erin's wedding, I have been addicted to UV Blue. Thank you, Erin, for introducing it to me! It's cheap as hell too, so that's a bonus. Anyway, I had it first with lemonade, which was great. When I ordered it at a bar here in the cities, they only had pink lemondade and that was delicious! So I've been drinking a lot of those lately. This weekend I decided to do a little experimenting. We had some Red Bull from when Justin worked late the other weekend. So I mixed those, with a splash of pink lemonade, and this is what I got:

I love the funky ass green color.

It was really good. Then I did some random mixing with Sprite, red bull, lemonade, reg vodka. They all turned out good. I would always make Justin try each one - he pretty much hates 'em all - too sweet for him.

Here is just a cute picture of the pup I took the other night.

I must comment on the poll. 3-way tie between Christmas Story, Rudolph, and Other. But, since one of the two voters for 'other' has failed to announce his/her choice, 'Other' will be disqualified as an answer. Therefore, it is now only a 2-way tie. Surprisingly no votes for the Grinch! All quality movies, I must say.

Have a great week, everyone!

Note: I left all the religious songs off of the poll; there are just too many.

Odds and Ends

Hello! Well, we got our first real and lasting snowfall of the season. It's snowed 3 or 4 times since. We probably have about 5 inches total. Bear was outta hand when he first got out in it. It's almost impossible to walk him after a fresh snowfall - he just wants to run through the drifts and piles. It's kinda cute, gets pretty annoying after awhile.

So I'm working on a puzzle. I don't care if that's gay or not, I like it. Justin makes fun of me, but that's ok. It's good for the brain. Soon, mine's gonna be so big my skull will hardly be able to hold it. Anyway, this is what it looks like. I started it this past week.

I found this kuchen recipe in my new Taste of Home mag, so I decided to try it out. It's pretty good! Not bad at all for my first attempt. There are a few things I would tweak next time. Justin really likes it, so that's good. Here's what it looks like, it's cinnamon peach.

We decorated for Christmas today! We actually decided to get a big tree this year. It's a 7.5 footer. It's really pretty, I'm so glad we finally shelled out the cash for a nice one. It really gets me in the Christmas spirit; I can't believe it's coming so fast.


Lit up!

So, after the Vikings game last Sunday, Justin slammed his finger in the car door. The next day it swelled up so bad he had to go to the dr to have them drain it. I suppose many of you have read about it already on his blog, but I'll post a few pics on mine as well. He said the pain has started to go away, but I'm sure he'll lose the nail. Eeewww.

The damage - this was one wk ago, now the nail is completely black

Tonight we wanted to get the dogs together to play. Well, Justin and I were both feeling lazy, so we thought "I wonder if we just opened the door if he'd run over to Guinness' house?" So we called up Kelly and had her stand at her door and call him over. He bolted right over there! We then wondered if we could get him to come back over here after they were done playing. She let him out the door, we called him from our porch, and he came running home like a good pup. We're proud of our boy - he's growing up so fast - going over to his friend's house all by himself. ;)
Oh, one more thing: Bear fell asleep on my laptop on Friday night. It was really cute; here are a few pics.

Happy Holidays! See you soon!
