I love Christmas.
It’s my favorite holiday. Maybe it’s because it’s also my best friend’s birthday (aka my mom’s – who was also born in Bethlehem!) but I just love the holiday. It makes me happy… well at least when I avoid shopping during this time. Nothing will get rid of my Christmas spirit faster than going to Wal-Mart, I tell ya.
Anyway, this year, I decided to do some stuff to get the Christmas spirit going in this house. I made my first advent … read on, Fisherboy »
I am feeling very frustrated right now.
I can’t help it.
If my honey actually ever reads this, please don’t think this is a negative reflection upon you. It is not.
See, my honey does the woodworking around here. He’s got all kinds of awesome tools out in the garage, and when I want something, I draw p the plans, and he makes it for me. It’s actually a pretty great system. Back when I was a kid, I use to take shop class, and I loved woodworking … read on, Fisherboy »
So, I had a 4-day weekend… woo-hoo! It was packed full o’ stuff to do. One thing that occupied most of my time was the new addition to our family:

WTH?) – if I spend any time with a dog of any kind, I itch, sneeze, get stuffy and occasionally break out in hives. However, this pup? The NAID … read on, Fisherboy »
I probably should have saved the image from my last post to put into this one. However, it was the image that prompted my start of redecorating our house, so I guess it fits.
Anyway, the image (in case you missed it) is this:
It’s from Pottery Barn Kids, and is the “Pink Daisy Garden Bedroom“. (A warning: I don’t know how long that link will be good for.) When I saw it, I knew my youngest would love to have her bedroom look like this. She loves the … read on, Fisherboy »
So. my kids are wanting special Halloween costumes this year. My daughter wants to be a “Rose Princess,” she loves all things royal, pink, and sparkly. So we were looking online, trying to find pretty dresses for her, and we came across the Costumer’s Guide. My daughter is only four, so I immediately thought of Kirsten Dunst in “Interview With a Vampire,” and the lovely dresses she wore. As we were trolling through, looking at the dresses, her eyes were cast upon Christine’s dress in … read on, Fisherboy »
When I was growing up, I had something instilled in me: the drive to never quit. Meaning, if I committed to something, if I promised I would do something, then I would see it through to the end.
I remember when I was in 9th grade, I was a cheerleader. At the beginning of the school year, there were 14 of us on the squad. When “yearbook picture time” rolled around in mid_march, there were three. Everyone quit. Various reasons, really – but … read on, Fisherboy »
