Miscellany Monday {santa goodies - 2011}


Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


{1 | Happy 2011 Y'all!}
I hope that this finds you all well & refreshed from all your holiday festivities. I have to say that while we didn't have a ton of drunken parties get togethers, I am still wiped out. Mercy y'all, I think I am getting lazy old! I am sad to see the holiday season come to an end but at the same time, I am really excited for what the new year will bring!!Thank you for being a faithful reader of my blog- welcome back! Even though I only started this blog 6 mths ago, I have a different direction for the new year. I'm thinking food, fashion & decor! Since I have a family blog, I can make this one all about cooking, decorating & my latest fashion lusts. Thanks to my new readers, I can't wait to get to know you:)



{2 | gotta shake some fat off}
Thanks to my ankle and hip, I have decided torture myself to join the local gym. I came to the conclusion that if the Dr wants me to go to therapy,I can do it myself. and in cute clothes I am not a gym person but it's tiny, 24hrs & close to my house and all my favorite shops & I am going to be a big girl soon if I don't start moving! My hubby goes there so I won't be alone and we just love the restaurant thats next door:) {see a pattern?} I pray that soon I can run pain free soon. I really like to eat & drink what/when I want. This getting old stuff is for the flippin birds!{that & the gutters of uneven roads that I seem to fall into while running} The MR changed his membership from single to family.....ugh no turning back now.only way i am getting out is if i loose a limb or die

{3 | Yo,thank ya santa baby!}
I hope that Santa brought you everything that was on your list. I got more than I could have imagined from the MR! Have I ever mentioned how awesome he is? Y'all he got me some SPANX bras. TO.DIE.FOR.DIE.I.TELL.YOU! Bra-llelujah! I am in love. Althought I almost threw up when I saw the tags! I am so glad he is a material boy!! I think my favorite thing was my UGG slippers. I haven't taken them off except to leave the house! He also got me some other things but those are like the "bombs". He also got me a newer Kreuig, cause we are such coffee snobs which is awesome. Here are a few others things he got me, did I mention how lucky blessed I am? He made out like a bandit, Mr Orvis in the flesh and the flip flop kids we happy little souls...our living room was filled with many boxes from TOMS, PUMA, Iphones & Lacoste! {apple doesn't fall far from the tree!}{it's their dads fault}Here are a few of my favorite things-

This candle is Tahitian Tuberose...LAWDY MERCY Y'ALL...it's a wonderful scent! He got it from my most favorite home/gift store EV-AH in town....he also got me some beautiful hand towels with crosses & fluer de lis embroidered on them. He is so good, it's scary!

  24. P.S. I was shopping with one if my girlfriends recently and when we were trying on clothes in the dressing room I saw this thick bra strap and immediately started giving her a hard time about being a grandma! That's when she told me about Spanx bras and how they are so comfortable!

  25. Great post and getting older is most definitely for the birds! I will be with you in heading back to the gym.

    The Keurig is an amazing coffee machine! We love it. Those Ugg slippers look so comfortable and I bet that candle smells amazing.

    Happy Birthday to your hubby and I hope that you have a great time celebrating!
