Tron was horrible..Christmas is good!

So here is my Christmas tree this year. MJ said he wanted to do an OSU tree, and I'm thinking he means a "small" one.. Um no..he comes over with a giant 7th tall black tree! We put the orange bulbs on it, but it needed a little more sparkle, so I grabbed some glitter twigs and jazzed it up..we liked the end result.

We also went to see "Tron" on Friday night.. Now pardon me, but I didn't see the one in the 80's, so I didn't know what to expect, but it didn't look like my kind of movie from the previews..and boy was I right! I just hated it! I had a hard time even sitting through it! MJ loved it, but I wanted to scratch it off the screen! Blargh.. Next time I will be watching "Black Swan" instead..

This is Payslee!s Christmas dress.. It's another sweet one from http://www.doggiedudsbydeb.com/, and I just love it. She wore it to work on
Sunday, and I took her a little early to pose for pictures..but as you can see she was more interested in going TO work, and waited outside
the door until someone let her in.. She does love going to work!

I had my christmas party on Saturday, and we all had a great time playing A new Wii game called "Just Dance".. Watching my friends try to dance was flipping hilarious! We had some great food too..I'm only working till Thursday this week, then we will have Christmas with MJ's mom on Christmas eve, then my family on Christmas day.. I'm so blessed this year! Merry Christmas!

Well Hello Christmas Magic!

So I've been working at "Paws around Town" and yesterday Payslee & I just had a blast.. Lots of fun customers, and she's quite a sales person because she stands at the edge of the doors till people see her..then when they try to pet her, she races inside, so they have to come IN the store to shop if they want to pet her! Its funny..and she's such a good greeter! We are having a lot of fun there.. Plus when Miss Pays gets home, she is just BEAT.. (see side pic)..

Last week I went to an awesome Christmas party and won a gift certificate to the Movies, and an Ulta Gift Certificate..AWESOME! I'm going to try to finish up my Christmas shopping this week, and start making plans for my Christmas Party on Saturday.. I've been working quite a bit, but things are slow this week at one of my jobs, so hopefully I'll catch up and get ready for some party festivus!

I believe that Santa is going to bring me some new Landrollers..I'm pretty pumped about that, seeing that the last wheels I bought threw me into the pavement! Plus the babes are ready to rollerblade again. I'm also getting a new bike..It belonged to my dear friend Dick Johnson that I did morning with in Weatherford..I loved loved him, and sang at his funeral 2 years ago..I can't believe he's been gone that long, and I still miss him..But..I LOVE his sweet wife Ellen, and when she told me she wanted to sell his bike, I knew it was meant to be mine! I'm going to see if I can get one of those wagon things that the babes can ride in while I bike along.. Oh what a sight! lol

Hope everyone is having a great time Christmas Shopping..If you still have stuff to shop for, heres a list that helps you pick something for every person on your list. The Consumer Queen has done a great job putting together an awesome list! Check it out! Plus she has great coupons! score!

Also, if you haven't read my friend JOEL's BLOG..Do so, he's entertaining..

Christmastime's a Coming..

well I had my hair done again.. This time I added blonde to the red.. It's pretty delicious. Nicole at "Changes hair salon" in Edmond is who does my hair, and she does a great job! Mj likes it, even though he thinks I would look good with brown hair, I politely declined.. Lol

Well I'm working my fingers to the bone.. I work at Chesapeake all day, then tonight I'll go to work at "Paws around Town" till 8pm, since we are staying open late on Thursdays or the holidays.. The irony of all this working is that I still have no money! How does that happen! It's the time of the year when I do need to be buying presents.. I have bought a few things, but I have more that I need to get. Hopefully that will happen next week.

Last night I took Payslee to the new alzheimer unit called "Cyprus springs".. She was sweet to all the residents and we had a good visit. We go there every two weeks. I've been missing our regular thursday visits because of working late, but will start back up again in January. Payslee has a new Christmas dress thanks to Deb.. She has the cutest things at www.doggiedudsbydeb.com. She does such a great job..so between Miss Deb, and working at the dog shop, Miss Pays has all kinds of cute Christmas clothes!

Did you all watch the repeat of Wynonna Judd yesterday on Oprah? I watched it for the 2nd time and I've decided I need a life coach.. How cool would it be to have a life coach! Soeone that just reminds you how fantastic you are..offers great advice..listens to you cry about your issues and offers encouragement.. Tells you you are pretty..etc.. Yeah, I'm on board. I'm going to try to find one when I make enough money to hire one.. Lol. Better yet, I'll ask Santa for one!

Legs of the Living

You know, back when I was in High school I used to love my legs. I loved them because they were strong, and they would help me push post players out of the lane.. or they would help me push people over the half-court line when the ref wasn't watching (Yes, I played 6 on 6..shut it)..They helped me stand my ground when someone was pushing me around the lane..Now I just want to shave them off..Seriously. Isn't it so funny that the things you used to love about yourself when you were younger, now torment you? I hate my thighs..I'm sure this is not a new revelation for a woman to say, but I do..I don't mind having a little junk in my trunk..but I hate having TREE Trunk legs.. Why am I blogging about this? Who knows.. lets move on..

I've started my 2nd job at Paws around Town. Payslee & I went to work on Sunday and Pays was quite the little sales person..She would stand by the door and people would see her, and try to come pet her, then she would race into the store so they would HAVE to come in and look around! How funny is that! We will go to work again tomorrow, then again on Saturday & Sunday..I'll be working 7 days a week through December, but I'll be able to do some Christmas shopping at the store!

We had a great Thanksgiving.. It was just a few of us, but delish food, and always nice to be with my family.. MJ didn't get to join us, because we decided to come back on Friday to do some shopping..We went to Penny's, but it was a madhouse, so settled on the Market, where mom got some awesome stuff, and I picked up a few gifts.. Saturday we all went to Stillwater to tailgate with my brother, Randy..He set up 4 tents, and cooked all kinds of goodness.. Calf fries, noodles, stew, Frito-pies..and of course drinks! He had the TV setup in the tent so we could watch stuff.. It was fun..didn't like the result OF THE game, but I'm very proud of my OSU Cowboys!

I downloaded that song "Brand new Key".. Its the song off that HP Baby commercial where the baby is traveling down the road in the walker and the lady is singing "I've got a brand new pair of rollerskates, you've got a brand new key..".. I love it. It makes me happy when I hear it..
