Black Friday

Today was considered Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when people go out in the insane early hours of the morning to get good deals at various stores and malls. I went out last year to find a digital camera on Black Friday, although I didn't go so gosh darn early, and bought a VCR instead. This year, I had absolutely no interest. I have only 2 more gifts to buy for Christmas, and they aren't anything that I would have had to stand in line for hours to purchase. So, I slept in, and had a leisurely morning instead!

What I was able to accomplish, with the help of my mom, was decorating for Christmas!! Yes, my tree is up and all pretty, and so are the Christmas-y things that I put out every year. I don't know why I'm so ready for Christmas this year. I just hope that I won't go insane before it actually arrives. That would suck. lol

A friend of mine who I tutor with is here in town this weekend with her husband. I am so excited that I get to meet her in person, …

Being Thankful

I am thankful for my family, who I love with every fiber of my being. My parents, who have been there for me alot, especially the last several years, mean so much to me. My sisters are always on my mind and definitely in my hearts, and I love them ever so much.

I am thankful for all of my friends. I can't begin to imagine my life without them. They all bring such a different and unique aspect to my life, with their amazing talents and life experiences. I truly love them all.

I am thankful for my health, no matter how it stands. I've been through so much in my life healthwise, and I am so grateful that I'm still here on this earth. I've been through some pretty rough times, but I always feel that it could be worse. And it could be. Despite all the tests I've been through, despite all the pain I've endured with being so out of breath, despite the illnesses I've somehow managed to get over, I always know that it could be worse.

I am thankful for my home, for the…


I've been getting ready for a jewelry party I'm having here on Friday night. I'm excited about it! Everything I'm trying to sell has been made by none other!! I've been slaving so hard in my kitchen the past several weeks, making necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and tealight lamps. I'm glad that many of my friends are going to be able to see what I've been making!

If you'd like to see, too, you can go to

(By the way, I didn't try the new Blogspot format yet. Why do I have to get a Google account just to have it??)

New Blogspot Format

When I just logged in now, I saw a message saying the new format is now ready. I'm afraid to try it!! I don't want anything to get ruined or messed up. lol

Perhaps I'll just go for it.

Wish me luck!

A Wonderful Little Surprise!

Yesterday morning, my family got together for breakfast at a nice local restaurant. We decided to do this the first Sunday of every month. We got there after Mandy and Ron, and we were sitting down after saying hi to each other. I then noticed the shirt my cute little niece was wearing. It said:

"Big sister in training."

I stared at Mandy, and said, "Are you pregnant???" And she said yes! They are having another baby!! We were all so very excited!! I felt like I was on Cloud 9 all day yesterday, too! She is due on June 8th, which is funny because Hailey's original due date was June 11th, but she decided to show up 11 days later. I'm just happy though! I am hoping for a girl, but as long as the baby is healthy, that's all that matters!!
