Out of Office

I'll be taking a bloggy break until after the new year. We'll be quite the busy couple over the next 2 weeks.

Celebrating this

Then heading here

To watch these two teams play in bowl games in Orlando and Miami

And of course no trip to Florida is complete without a stop off here

Merry Christmas

"For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."

My Good Egg

I have to say that I have a good egg. My sweet husband may not put his dishes in the sink or close cabinets and drawers once he gets what he wants out of them, but he is a sweet man. He came home last night with a couple more Christmas gifts for me and wanted to go ahead and give me one of them which was this
Okay so there is an explanation needed. We're headed to Florida after New Year's for several fun things. Our main trip is to Orlando to see my Gamecocks play Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl. We are also going to visit Harry Potter Land and MGM as we were just in Orlando a year ago and went to some of the other parks then. My dad was able to score two Orange Bowl tickets for the husband and I to see the husband's team, Clemson Tigers, take on the West Virginia Mountaineers in Miami. I had joked a couple of weeks ago about wearing WVU gear to the game which wasn't well received at the time. Last night though, my husband brought home this shirt for me to wear to the game. A good egg indeed.

All I Want For Christmas

Have y'all seen this? I saw it on Perez first and then found out I could download the song from iTunes. Love.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

I love Christmas time! Our home (well the downstairs at least) is festively decorated to welcome anyone who comes in with Christmas cheer.

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care

Our Christmas tree is merry & bright

The reason for the season is out for all to see in the living room

Our table is ready to entertain guests

And even little Christmas Raleigh is waiting to greet people in the downstairs bathroom

The husband and I have joked about our pet snake"Sssss"that lives in our backyard since we moved in. Our friends came over to see our new home the day we moved in and brought their dog who promptly went outside and ran around the backyard. We noticed something moving on the fence and everyone quickly realized that it was a SNAKE. (We have protected wetlands behind our home)

Well, tonight I decided to let Raleigh (precious pug) outside while we were waiting on his daddy to come home and I looked down to see that Sssss had decided to come visit us a little closer. The dang snake was INSIDE our screened in porch. The husband sometimes leaves the screen door cracked when he lets Raleigh out. I sent him a picture and reminded him of yet another reason why we close the screen door. I won't be returning to our backyard tonight.
