Gift Exchange!

The husband I decided to exchange gifts a little early. Since Christmas is such a huge deal in my family, we usually have a little Christmas a couple of days early on our own. This year, it was supposed to be tomorrow, however, my husband gets a little excited and wanted to give me my gifts early. So, for the last two days, I've been meaning to take pictures of my gifts to post. Sorry, that's just not going to happen. So see below, my wonderful gifts taken from the website!

1 CT. T.W. Celebration Diamond® Solitaire Stud Earrings in 18K White Gold - Zales
1 CT WT earrings from Zales...Love 'em! I couldn't get the picture to come out. I had the same problem when I first got engaged and tried to take pictures of my engagement ring...I also got some blue sweats and a gorgeous black robe from VS, that I can't seem to find on the website...maybe I'll take a picture of them later.I love presents! 

Also, I made my grandpa some homemade caramel candy for Christmas...We'll see how they turn out. He used to hide his caramels when we were little and I always used to sneak them. I was the only (out of 12) grandkids who knew where he kept them. So, I thought this would be a pretty heartfelt gift. A guy he works with brought in a bag of caramels a few weeks ago and my grandpa called and said every time he eats a caramel, he thinks of me. So, hopefully, they'll turn out to be edible.

Mr. and Mrs. Snobby

That would be the hubs and I. Lately we've noticed that maybe we aren't as friendly as we thought we were. Sure, we're nice people. But, really, just because I wear Cowboys jersey does not mean I want to chat with you for 45 minutes in Game Stop about wether or not they can "pull it off". Because, really, I don't care what you would do differently. It's really a shame that your coaching skills were ignored and you are forced to work at a video game store. This was my experience when I went to get a Christmas gift for my husband the other day. In reality, I know less about football than most anyone I know. I'm simply a fan by association, as in, my husband is a huge Cowboys fan, and I think Jason Witten is a the greatest (I love my men to be men and any guy who can play football with a broken and bloody nose and broken ribs, is a real man). That's it. That's how I'm a fan.

So, today we start talking about the B&B we stayed in a few months ago. It was our first time to ever stay in one. We've stayed in some really amazing hotels and thought this would be a great experience in itself. However, I just don't think we're cut out for it. My husband said he "does not like the personal touch." Which, to be honest, neither do I. It's awkward enough having breakfast with strangers but you are literally a houseguest in a strangers home. It's too much for us. So, as discussed today, it's hotels all the way from now on!

So then, here I am in the gym today, obviously with my iPod in my ears and some guy comes along apparently thinking I'm inviting a conversation. He literally asked me about the weather. Seriously. I'm pretty sure the iPod and the treadmill under my feet is a clear statement that I'm not in such a state to make friendly. Apparently not. A direct quote: 

"Funny, it was a lot colder yesterday." 

Followed by my response: "Um, yeah. Ok."

Really? I had to take my earphones out for that. Sometimes, I just don't get it...Don't get me wrong, we are nice people, but there really is a such thing as being too friendly. So, regretfully, I have to admit it, I think we (or really, I) may be a little snobby...

The Joy of Working Out...

After several months out of the gym, that started from laziness, then extended because surgery, and then because of working too much, I'm now back to working out and found myself in a very uncomfortable position. Uncomfortable as in, I can't move. I started back Monday with the intentions of going everyday. I'm trying to get back to running my four miles a day, several times a week and lifting weights. Well, after two days, I'm taking a day off! I've been doing well with my eating (this is since Monday, remember), however, I was so sore that every time I rolled over last night, I woke up because my body was in so much pain! So, apparently, Wednesday, not Sunday, will be my day off from the gym this week.

Here's to a better tomorrow!

No More Hell-Job!

Today is my first Monday away from the hell job! I'm so excited and I've got so much I want to do. As for now...I'm off to do some Christmas shopping! I've got a gift for everyone on my list except for the Hubs. But what do you expect, we were always together. Well, I'm off!
