The Best and Worst Things... of 2011

So I had planned to do a list of my favorite Christmas gifts of 2010... Well, you can probably guess why that wasn't successful.
You Got It! It is now February and I officially stink at staying focused with 'my plan.' Oh well!

Anyhow, I feel that I am somewhat better than last year.. Baby.Steps.Right?

Since the school year is now fully into the 'swing' of things, I am finding myself mentally and physically exhausted at the end of each day. When we get home, the last thing I want to do is sit at a computer and type. I spend on average about 30 minutes on the computer when I get home...
What am I doing you might wonder? Well, I read up on a list of my favorite blogs, maybe one day I will share my new favorites. :)
I check our banking information and lately have been making reservations for some up and coming trips! Yahoo! That is about the extent!

So, tonight, I decided to finally sit down and get all of my thoughts out of my head and on the paper computer.


Chelsea, if you are reading this... I miss him, I miss you. I want to need to see him soon, real soon. I need some snuggle time. I need some baby time. I need Tyler.

My new camera lens. Enough said. 

Cupcakes. Or really just baking in general. I have been so blessed to have baking jobs through the month of January and I am now booked through February. I love every minute of it. 
Plus, who wouldn't love a HOT pink cupcake with a zebra print liner and the best chocolate cake you have ever put in your mouth? =HEAVEN!

Of course, this goes without saying...
I think this is the best gift I have ever bought myself. :)

Aghhhhhhh... My life saver in the morning. Enough said.
Oh, and my favorite mug below. The first coffee mug J ever bought me. Now, the whole coffee cup gift giving is literally turning into a big joke. We have the most random collection. I hope we aren't alone...

My Tervis Tumbler... I use it every single day. My friend Mallory gave it to me for Christmas and I LOVE IT! She knows me well, I am a creature of habit and very practical. 

Oh and my iPhone!!! J and I bought each other new phones for Christmas... This was the last bill that our parents so joyfully handed down to us. We are now officially paying ALLLLLLLL of our own bills. Sucks. Anyways I'm getting off topic. 
My phone is my other half of my brain. I love it. I have it with me all the time. I think it is superglued to my hand hand, figuratively of course. Actually my phone is sitting next to me as we speak... AND I am texting my Tervis Tumbler friend, Mallory. (Mentioned above.)

Lastly, my Otterbox. For those of you that don't know, it is my phone case. In case you didn't know, I am really hard on phones... I don't mean to be, I just am. So, my otterbox is the BOMB!

This picture should explain it all. I love my slippers. Call me an old lady if you like, but there is no better feeling than slipping on a pair of slippers at the end of a long day.

I know, I am getting ridiculous here. I don't blame you if you don't read any further. But these boots are  pretty great! I just love them! They are comfy and so incredibly cute with jeans, skirts, or dresses. 

Awwwwwww look, it it John! Well, obvisouly he is one of the best things. Ever.
However, this facial hair he is sporting is new. This picture was taken about a week ago. So, it has filled out even more. But, I like it. I think it looks good on him. Maybe even sexy. ;)

Pillows, oh my!!
That is right folks, I made these alllllll by myself. Well, kinda. My NanaC, has assisted in walking me through the sewing process. She is a great teacher and so incrediably patient with me. We have a grand time laughing at our my mishaps. I am learning. These are some of the throw pillows I made for our home.
BTW: I also know how to thread the machine and the bobbin! Also how to back stitch and turn corners!! Wahoo! If nothing else, I can make pillows!!!

So, this post was a lot longer than I planned.... hmmm. I think I will save the worst things of 2011 for another day. Maybe I will keep a couple of you hangin. ;)
