This post is going to sum up the entire month of December. 
Don't worry, it won't be as long as it sounds.
Here is how our month went...

I did some Christmas crafting.

Glittered Canvas

Wreath on the front door

Callie had her pictures taken with Santa Paws at the 
daycare we send her to. It was free for all the pets and they sent 
me 7 pictures from her photo shoot!
This was the best picture.
She looks like she is having the time of her life!


Meet Hershey, the newest addition to our family. 
Travis has always wanted a chocolate lab, so she was his Christmas gift.
We adopted her from a military family who is moving and wasn't able to take her.
She is the sweetest dog ever. 
It took Callie a little while to warm up to her, but now they are BFF's.


We hosted our first Christmas at our place. 
Travis' parents, sister and Grandmother came over.
The highlight of the day for me was that it snowed!
I have NEVER had a white Christmas, hell, I don't remember 
the last time it rained on Christmas. 
Everything was so beautiful covered in snow. 
And the dogs loved it. 



This past weekend we celebrated Travis' 30th birthday.
We didn't do much. He hates his birthday. 
But I took him out for a day of all his favorite things:
breakfast at Chick-Fil-A, a trip to Bass Pro, a movie 
and lunch at Hard Eight BBQ. 
The day after we got to enjoy a relaxing day together and have lunch with
our good friends. It was so nice to have two relaxing days off with him.

Beer and a movie in a huge leather recliner...the only way to see a movie

The "menu" at Hard 8

 And now we are sitting in our pj's, watching House Hunters and waiting to ring in 2013.
Happy New Year friends!

A Drinking Game

The Holidays are here. Blast. 
Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas more than the next person. 
But, the holidays tend to be a constant reminder that another 
year has gone by and my uterus is still empty. 
I decided to create a little drinking game to get through Thanksgiving tomorrow.
Play along. 

Rules: Make sure you have plenty of alcohol on hand before starting.
 Drink = a hefty swig of the adult beverage of your choice, no sipping

  You are headed to your inlaws for the day - take a drink

The first post on your Facebook timeline is a picture of a  friends baby - take a drink

 Each additional baby picture post on Facebook - take a drink

 Every time someone refers to their baby as "little turkey" - take a drink

A family member asks when you are getting pregnant - take 2 drinks

Your sister/brother/cousin/family member has an "announcement" to make - drink a bottle

Every Facebook post referring to a child being who they are thankful for - take 2 drinks

 Your friend you would have shared a due date with had your last cycle worked
posts how she is 37 weeks and ready to have this baby - drink 2 bottles

At dinner when asked what you are thankful for this year you reply; Clomid, Gonal F, progesterone and the cam at your RE's office  - take 4 drinks

You are thankful for your Reproductive Endo and nurses - take 2 drinks

You find yourself in the bathroom with said adult beverage, crying because you swore 
by Thanksgiving this year you would be pregnant -  drink a bottle

Every pregnancy announcement the past year you replied "congrats" instead 
of "i-hate-you-why-you-and-not-me" - take a drink

You are thankful for the online community of friends you have never met but
offer more love and support than most IRL friends - take a drink

 You have to excuse yourself from the table to give yourself an injection -  take a drink

You are in the middle of the 2WW - take a drink

You had to reschedule when you are eating because T.I. fell right in the middle of dinner -  
take a drink

A family member "knows" your pain because they tried for 3 whole months - take 3 drinks

You have to work Black Friday, and you work at a baby store - drink a bottle

A family member gives you their baby so you can "get practice" - take two drinks

You are told: just relax/ get drunk/ it will happen when it's supposed to/take a vacation/
once you stop trying it will happen - take a drink per comment

Aunt SoandSo comments "if it was meant to happen, it would happen" - take 2 drinks

Your dad/FIL/brother/uncle/cousins hands your husband male en.hancement pills and says
"this should get her pregnant" - take 3 drinks

You get home and completely lose it emotionally because another year has gone by - 
drink another bottle

Well friends, by now you should be good and wasted. I know that's my plan for tomorrow.
Don't get me wrong, I have so much to be thankful for this year, and I really am. 
But I'd be lying if I acted like it's not  hard to keep things in perspective when the only thing in the world I want is to be a mom and it still hasn't happened. 

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!

1. I somehow got lucky and my Target still had a good selection of Halloween
stuff, and it was marked 90% off. SCORE!
Three pillows, 2 giant bags of candy, a wall hanging, 2 cupcake mixes,
2 set of cupcake liners, and I know there were a few other things. 
Grand total: $16.00

2. I made a headboard for our bedroom last week. It's just about finished...
as in it just needs to be hung. It was a huge pain in the ass, but I love it! 
(note to self, stop taking on projects with chevron prints)

3. My parents are coming to visit for a few days.
It's a very short visit, but I am so so so so so excited. 

4. I'm going to nanny again. For twins!
I should start at the first of the year. They are 2 weeks old right now.
I'm really excited and the family is awesome. 
They just moved and there are 4 sets of twins on their street. 
I'm thinking I just watch them all for a giant group rate! haha

5. Does anyone watch Revenge? 
I am obsessed. Completely obsessed. 
And, I'm pretty thrilled Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is back. 

6. I bought the most amazing candle yesterday at Market Street.
It's Roasted Espresso and heavenly. If you have a Market Street near you,
get yourself one stat.
