What I'm Loving Wednesday

I am back for my What I'm Loving Wednesday link up with Jamie! I have missed doing this! So i am excited to be back!
I'm Loving:  That today is November 30th and tomorrow starts one of my favorite months! December is filled with family, traditions, snow, snuggling with blankets and hot chocolate while watching Christmas movies, love and time off work from December 22nd until January 3rd! I also love how nice people seem to be in the month of December, we all seem to have smiles on our faces and love in our eyes! I wish everyone was that happy all year round!
I'm Loving:  That i am almost done with my Christmas shopping! Let the wrapping begin! I still have a few things left to get and then stocking stuffers for the hubby and furbaby!  How is your shopping coming? Are you done, have you not started?
I'm Loving: That i am almost ready to send my Christmas cards out in the mail, hopefully by this weekend, i will be making a delivery to the post office! Have you sent yours yet?  

I'm Loving: This coat, i have a pink pea coat that is my favorite but it has seen better years :( so i am looking for something new that is pink :)

I'm Loving:  That our sweet niece turned 2 and she is so funny and i just love watching her grow! I am excited to see her at Christmas and watch her really open her presents!
I'm Loving:  Of course i am loving my sweet and hard working husband and our adorable, spoiled furbaby Macy!!
Hope everyone is having a great week! Can't wait to see what you are loving!

Until next time,
<3

Hello! Updates!

I have been a terrible blogger lately, i guess life is getting in the way, busy busy!

I have been really trying to get through some things on my 101 things 1001 days list, but i have not done a very good job, but within the last 2 weeks i have knocked a few things off my list which is great! I will get to those things in a bit.

We celebrated our nieces 2nd birthday on Friday November 11th, her actually birthday was not until the 23rd, but they were back, so we got her a Dora cake, gifts and balloons! She had a ball and she is talking so much more! She is such a little person and i just love to watch her grow and change it is the best! Here she is saying my name on video, well she says Mel, but i will take it! Please excuse my annoying voice and i repeat the wrong thing back that she said, but i must have been too excited about it catching it on video! :)

We got Lily and Dora and Boots blanket and some ribbit pajamas, she loves to jump like a frog!
She also loves cake! My mom got her a Boots, Dorey(as she calls Dora) and a Go Go (as she calls Diego) cake :)


One of my things on my  101 things in 1001 days  list was to make a wish on November 11, 2011 at 11:11. My office made it very easy that day for me to get my wish in, we were having a staff retreat and we got to stop the meeting so everyone could make a wish at 11:11! I thought that was so cool, that is why i love my JOB! :)

I also have never been to a Midnight Premiere of a movie and wanted to do that, so when my sister said she wanted to get tickets to Breaking Dawn Part 1 for the midnight showing i was all over it! So we ordered 3 tickets and a friend/coworker Janelle went with us as well. I thought the movie was good and i am anxious for part 2 to come out next November, some people were not thrilled with it, but i enjoyed it. A couple scenes in the movie i didn't like and they kind of made me uncomfortable, but other than that it was good! Did you see it? What did you think?

Janelle and I after the movie, we were tired :)
And last but not least, i have never been shopping on Black Friday, for some of you i am sure you are gasping :). I worked many Black Fridays when i worked retail in college and always told myself i would never do it, it was too early and no deal was that good to stand in the freezing cold, well i fooled myself and decided to hit the sales this Black Friday. My co-shopper partner in crime my sister and I got on the road at 10:00 p.m. on Thursday and headed out, i wanted to drive by one of our Targets and Best Buy to see the lines, they were crazy! I guess there were some fights at Best Buy, we tried to take a few pictures, but they didn't turn out too well (as you will see below). So we started our shopping at Kohls and bought 125 dollars worth of stuff and saved over 205! So it was well worth it, then we headed to Younkers (which might be Bon Ton or Boston's in your areas) then Target, Wal-mart and Sears, we were home at 5 a.m. and ready for bed! I went to Best Buy later in the day and actually got a better deal then the door buster sale they had that morning, so i was happy about that! All in all, it was a great experience and we shall see, if i do it again! Are you a Black Friday Shopper? If so what is the best deal you got?

My sister and I ready to SHOP :)


As you can see Best Buy was getting rowdy at 10.



I know this blog was picture over loaded! I hope you guys stick with me and keep reading! :)  A giveaway is coming soon, so tell your friends to come over and become a follower! I will be catching up on your blogs this week! Can't wait to see what you have been up to!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and has kicked off the Holiday shopping season! My tree is up and most of my presents have been bought. Next blog post will be holiday decor at my house, stay tuned!!

Until next time,
<3

We had a great day and i just love handing out candy to all the kids, plus they all love Macy :) We also got to see Lily and she was the cutest lady bug i have ever seen :) (of course i am not biased at all :))We went to my parents house to Lily all dressed up and i have been waiting for about 4 months for her to say my name and she gave me THE BEST early birthday present and said my name on Halloween! I was so happy!!! As you can tell she loves her Aunt Mel :) This is also my link up for What I'm Loving Wednesday it is all about my niece and Macy :)

Yesterday November 1st was my birthday, so it is always fun to have Halloween and then a birthday! But as you get older birthday's are just another day, but my wonderful husband got me a yummy cake and we had dinner and then just hung out with Macy. Joe was headed to Vegas today so we were busy getting things together for him, but i had a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Monday and Tuesday! Here is to enjoying my last year of being in my twenties!! :) Crazy huh? Below is the picture from my in-laws house on Sunday.
Until next time,
