Well, what do you know... it's finally snowing! Got a few inches overnight and little flurries today. People round here thought it'd never get here. There was no White Christmas. But with me being from California, I could really care less. Haha... Wearing shorts on Christmas?! Bring it on baby!...lol
New sets today... cupcakes, hearts and black & white lentils. They're all so adorable. Thanks for taking a peek!
Thank you and have a very Happy New Year! :)

Happy Tuesday everyone! How was your Christmas? Ours was lovely and very relaxing. Stayed in our pj's all day. We ate a roast beast (hehe), baked potatoes and had delicious brussel sprouts. Can you believe my kids love brussel sprouts?! I know. Surprising to me, too. It's definitely one of those vegetables kids can't stand. Go figure.
Well, it's back to work for me today. I took a few days off last week to get my Christmas shopping done, so I need to work this week. Ugh... More beads coming tomorrow, but today I have a little set called, Sweet Pea. Thanks for peeking!
Have a terrific Tuesday!

TGIF everyone! So how are you doing on your Christmas shopping? Are you done? No, wait. Don't tell me...lol I had a great time at the mall yesterday. I got a lot done and Maddy is just about finished. Boy, I love the Aeropostle store. They have such cute clothes. Got a bunch for Maddy. Love the colors- so fun and bright. I couldn't help myself to a hoodie for 15 bucks. You sure can't beat that. Hey! I worked hard Christmas shopping, so I deserved something too. Right? Hehehe... A bit more to go for Jordan. We're getting there.
Krissy Beads is having a 20% off sale on all in stock items. The sale does not include made to order, only items listed on under 'Beads for Sale'. Please use coupon code jinglebells, and have fun shopping. The sale will last for 1 week or until everything is gone. Whichever is sooner. Happy Holiday's! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
The Twelve Days of Christmas
December 12, 2011
Let's sing it one more time!... On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Sugary Sweet... fa-la-la-la-la-la-la... Thanks for the fun. I hope you had fun, too. :)
Took the kids to Winter Fest yesterday. They each brought a friend so it was more fun for them. We saw Santa, went on a hayride, met some of the local college hockey players, got their autographs and the girls got their faces painted. And I picked up a couple Christmas gifts at the boutique. We all had a blast!
Have a terrific day!

A woo and a hoo it's Friday. Let's do the happy dance. :)
So, what are your weekend plans? Dwayne and I are going to a fundraiser tomorrow night to benefit the National Brain Injury Foundation, called the Santa Walk. My favorite part about it is, we get to dress in holiday costumes. I'm going shopping today for my costume. I have an idea of what I want to wear, just have to find it. I'm hoping it'll be easy enough. There'll be food, drinks, music and raffles for door prizes. We haven't been out with our friends in a while, so I'm really looking forward to it. Eat, drink and be merry. What a fun night it will be!
Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you tomorrow with day 10.

Sing it with me!... On the Seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Snowflake the Snowman... falalalalalala... I'm having so much fun. Hope you are, too!
I also have a set that includes 3 of my very realistic looking olives. Do you love a Martini as much as I do? Oh, how fun these would be worn to a holiday party!
Thank you so much for checking in today!

All together now... On the Sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Peppermint Twist earrings... falalalalalala... Thanks for stopping by!
How is it that I get myself volunteered for stuff? I went to a meeting at Jordan's middle school and ended up as a chair person on a committee. I couldn't say NO, could I? Well, maybe I could of but I felt the faculty looking at me with their big puppy dog eyes, so I just couldn't. I'm one of 4 parents on the committee. Dwayne is one, too. He was there with me and after we left he said, "What have you gotten me in to?!"...lol I didn't do it on purpose. I just have a hard time saying no to people. The State gave the school a Grant to spend on the needs of students that involve their parents who need additional support. It's up to us the committee to decide how the money will be spent and by flowing the guidelines. It does sound interesting, doesn't it? We will learn more about it at the next meeting, which is in a few weeks.
That's all for now... see you tomorrow!

Dwayne and I had a wonderful anniversary. We went to Turning Stone, ate dinner and gambled a little. We didn't win anything, but sure had a lot of fun trying. Boy, your money sure goes quick when you're loosing...lol
Have a marvelous Monday!

Today is my 28th wedding anniversary. Look at us in Vegas in 1983. It feels like yesterday, but then again, it's so far from where we are now. The years have flown by in a blink of an eye. Three beautiful children, and, boy, the things we've done. What a ride! I wouldn't change a thing. Well, maybe a couple. I love him more today than on the day we wed. He's my rock, my best friend.
We've got a babysitter and are going out tonight. Dinner and drinks. So delightful. :)
See you again tomorrow!

Sing it with me... On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Love is Sweet... falalalalalala. Thanks for checking in! :)
Maddy has become quite the little speller. She says, mom I can spell alphabet- A-L-P-H-A-B-E-T. Alphabet. Just like they do during a Spelling Bee. Ha! She does this a couple times during the day, and it's so cute! She told me this week, she wants to be a teacher. That has changed from a Veterinarian and may change a few more times before she's grown, I'm sure. But for now she wants to teach Second grade. Adorable. :)
See you tomorrow!

Happy December everyone! Can you believe Christmas is only 24 days away? I can't! Boy, the year has flown by. I wish decorating my house for the holidays, was as easy as decorating my site. Ha! No unpacking the decorations and deciding where things will go. With just a click of the mouse, it's done! :)
Are you ready?... It's The Twelve Days of Christmas! I do this every year and we have so much fun, don't we? Wooohoooo! So, this is how it's works- for the next twelve days I'm offering something new everyday right here on my site. I will post them at random times during the day (no email, just a note on facebook) so it's up to you to check in to see what's new. So here we go!... On the first day of Christmas, My true love gave to me: Gingerbread Cookies... falalalalalalalala...
I placed some items on sale, so take a peek at those, too. I may post more than one set for sale each day, so be sure to be on the lookout for them as well.
Thanks for joining in on the fun and I'll see you tomorrow.
