The Boy Who Lived

I’m sorry I have been so M.I.A.
Christmas and being off of work and on a weird schedule really messes with your blogging ability, as does my internet’s inability to behave and work properly.
Soon I’ll have some awesome Christmas pictures to post. Until then, I am alive and kicking.
Oh, and in reference to the title of my post, I reread all the Harry Potter books and can’t wait to get kicking on rewatching all the movies.
Have a great weekend and Happy New Year!!!

These are My Confessions

Linking up with Leslie.
One. I have only bought 1.5 Christmas presents. Maybe, 2.5, but that’s only if my mom picks one up for me. I’m terrible, right? And I do realize Christmas is really only a little more than a week away. Today doesn’t count anymore because its practically over. One of the gifts was a major fail, as well.
Two. This is a confession because I’m a Chargers fan, and its against my standards to like anyone else in the AFC West, but I love me some Tim Tebow. He’s a genuinely nice guy, he’s attractive, oh and he wins football games. (I also can not believe he made it onto my blog TWICE in one week).
Three. I would eat pork ribs (off the bone), coleslaw, and onion rings from Phil’s BBQ for the rest of my life if I could. Obviously my arteries and thighs would not approve, but I would do it.
Four. I am addicted to all the sweets that have been around for the holidays. I have eaten more than my fair share, and I think my body is going to make me pay for it. I have gone to the gym though, so that’s in some ways negating it.
Five. I royally failed on a Christmas present I was making and now I do not know what step I should take to make up for it.
I don’t have a lot of confessions, that I can think of. Not a great post, but a link up to someone else is better than my boring post.
Sorry, no photos.
9 days until Christmas, woo hoo!


I was having a terrible day.
Work will do that to you sometimes.
So, I went to the gym.
And it got worse.
The treadmill was skipping, and I almost fell off.
So, what is a girl to do?
I get on the elliptical and do intervals for 30 mins.
Then I do 20 mins of leg weights.
Then I did the cross-trainer/elliptical for 15 mins.
I feel amazing now.
And this is what it makes me think of:
Elle Woods is my idol.
Happy Hump Day!

Trying to Get Back in the Game

Today’s post brought to you by linking up with Megan.

Sometimes: I go to Target with the intention of buying only one necessary item.
Always: I end up buying way more (although some are necessities).
Sometimes: I want to quit my job on the spot.
Always: I end up realizing that I need to keep it, and that it really is not that bad.
Sometimes: I plan on cutting off all my hair.
Always: I end up keeping it long and seeing how far it can grow.
Sometimes: I want to hate Tim Tebow (I am a Charger fan, after all).

Always: I remember that he seems to be a really great guy.
Sometimes: I want to go to bed really early and get lots of sleep.

Always: I realize 7 hours is all I need.
Sometimes: I want to sleep in on the weekends.
Always: 7:30 AM calls my name and I get up.

Sometimes: I want to give up shampoo like all the cool kids.

Always: I end up washing my hair everyday.
Happy Tuesday!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Happy Sunday everyone.
I’m sitting here drinking my coffee, and I’m ready to tell you about my Saturday.
I ran errands so I could put up our Christmas tree.
I also purchased this:

It is an awesome CD. I love it. I listened to it all day yesterday. I love Christmas music as it is, but I could not stop listening. I love his version of “Feliz Navidad” with Thalia. But, I really just love the whole thing. Go buy it.
I then went to a Christmas luncheon at my church. We ate a lot of good food, and had a really great time.
Then I put up our Christmas tree:

I know that it is kind of wimpy, and that the pictures are terrible, but I’m not sure if a bigger tree would have fit. If we ever get a bigger one, we can always put this in the bathroom or something.
I’m off to finish my piping hot coffee.
Happy Sunday.


I am so sorry for being so M.I.A. lately. I was visiting my family and then I’ve had some major work and life drama, that has just drained me completely. I’ve been reading other blogs and am so jealous of all of you that have had the time, energy, and $$ for Christmas decorating. I really want to dig out what I have, but it isn’t very much, and I’m afraid it will add to my irritation with things these days. I also need to have a clean apartment before I can make it work. I haven’t even been on Pinterest, if you can believe that. I don’t think my following on here is too huge, but trust me, I will eventually be back. I just need to sort my life out. Seeing everyone elses’ happy blogs makes me know that bad things can happen, and I know I am lucky to have my health. It is really a shame that the economy, especially in California is such a disaster, and that having a job today does not always mean you’ll have one tomorrow. I know that no matter what Chris, my family, and my church will always be there for me, just with so much uncertainty in life, things can get a little crazy.
I’ll be listening to my Christmas music and pinning for Christmas until I can no longer pin. Have an awesome weekend, and hopefully I’ll be back A.S.A.P.
