pumped for 2013.. and other tangents

Here is last night's date night consisting of Burger Supreme and Pitch Perfect. I can't express in words my love for a good Greek Salad (so let my face do the talking). Spencer was not amused by this pic. Here you see him drinking root-beer with lemon. That's right folks, my husband likes a slice of lemon in his root-beer  I find it gross, but (as LeVar Burton always said) "Don't take my word for it."

New nails! seriously if you live in the area, go to Renaissance Academy! Their shellac/gel nails are only $10! What a steal! Ask for Kirsten! She is the best! 

Well the world is suppose to end today but all I can think about is a new beginning. I feel like 2013 is going to be a good year (unlike 2009, which will undoubtedly be filed under my "Worst Year Ever" category). One thing that is really exciting, is that Spencer got a new job. We've been applying for medical related jobs for the last six months (and I say we, not like those annoying couples that say "we are going to med school" or "we are pregnant" when really only one of you are. But I say this because I literally found all the jobs and hounded him about applying). And finally it all paid off! He got a job as a medical assistant! Oddly enough this was one I found in September, and after a month of not hearing from the company, they finally called him for an interview (about a week after we gave up and he got hired at a non-medical place). Spence went in for the interview anyway and a week later they called and said "You're hired... but we don't have a place for you right now." Haha it was sad, but they said starting January they would need him and then we were happy! Go husband! 
And I can't wait for 2013 to bring my 2 new niece(s) and/or nephew that I'm getting this year! I love (other people's) babies.

I'm not excited for the cold, but the snow is gorgeous right now.

I'm also really excited for the Christmas break and the chance to go to Vegas and spend it with the in-laws. And of course I'm also excited for this:

Mostly because I was in the musical in 9th grade and I know every word. I may or may not have been a "lady of the night" but I was a dang good one if so.  I also saw the Broadway cast of it when I was younger and it was amazing.

Another thing I am looking forward to. Working out! I haven't been utilizing my gym pass as much as I would like to and it's one of my New Years resolutions. I pretty much eat what I want and when you're not eating super super health, you have to be working out to counterbalance it. Hope everyone holds me to that! 

Other Christmas decor: 
I finally finished this wreath and I am obsessed with it! I found the large "H" at Joann's Fabric (I wanted an even larger one but couldn't find a close place that sold them), and then I bought craft branches that had holly berries on them from Michael's. I used hot glue to glue them, but before that I spray-painted the H red. Then made the burlap bow and just hot glued it to the back of the H (although I'm sure there are many ways to more securely attach it). 

Our mini tree my mom no longer wanted.
I added the wreath that use to be on the door to our mirror.

Our reindeer watch dog. My mom always had this in the front room growing up and I guess she has outgrown it cause she game him to me. 
And someone was nice enough to draw this very symmetric design on my car. It looks like a turtle shell.

And speaking of Christmas... here are my new Christmas shoes! I wanted to get some work shoes with some height that weren't heels. You'll find them here at They are Steve Madden and they were only $25 on sale (free shipping)! I'm obsessed with them in brown, but I have far too many brown boots. 

And lastly, have you heard of It is the greatest new thing I discovered. I use to keep the blogs I followed at the right side of my blog to keep track of them, but then I would have to go onto my own blog like twice a day and click on everyone to see if anyone updated their blog. Bloglovin is like Pinterest for blogs. You find all the blogs you're following and it organizes and saves them, and then you can get notifications every time someone you follow writes a post. It's also a great way to find new blogs (and it's also an app). Anyway, every one who reads more than one blog needs to get one and if you are getting one... follow me and put me on your bloglovin list (many of you are already on mine)! The link to my profile on the site is here, although you can always just copy and past my URL in the search box to find me. Love you all! Mmmmmmmmmwaa.
