7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Hmm.. one doesn't stand out in particular to me.

8. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Only with my grandparents

9. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? What truth... Santa is real! jk my mom was not really that creative with wrapping Santa's gifts, she used the same paper as their gifts to us, and i could tell her hand writing was the same as Santa's.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? I am very picky with my tree, I don't even let Jeff help (he is fine with that. He sits on the couch and drinks hot coco.). Light go on first then these berrie sticks that we have, then the bulbs go on and our favorite ornaments. And last we put the Santa hat as a topper (tree can't hold a star)

This was not even half of the cookies we made :)

Movie in the park

Tonight Jeff and I went to the Tampa Bay Performing Art Center to see a movie. They were playing The Christmas Story. Jeff and I have never seen the movie but it was cute. And it was really nice to do something different, next month we are going to get there earlier. I think they are playing the original Ocean's Eleven. I am excited, another movie i have not seen :)



So last night Aj and I went to go see the movie Twilight. When Aj first mentioned the idea to me if I wanted to go, I was not really crazy about it. A movie with a Vampire falling in love with a human, not really my thing. But surprising I really liked the movie.

After the movie was over Aj told me I would love the book more than the movie. If i really like the movie then i am sure i will love the book.


{my works christmas party}

This weekend my work had its Christmas Party... Oh forgot I am suppose to call it the "Holiday Party". It was nice, they took us on a dinner cruise called the StarShip.


{jeff's work christmas party}

Jeff's work Christmas Party was so much fun. We went to Gasparilla Grato (not to sure how that is spelled!) in Ybor City. We sang karaoke all night long.


Sad day :(

Obama is president!

Two year Anniversary :)

I can not believe Jeff and I have been married for two years. It does not seam like it. We really didn't do anything big this year. Jeff took me out to dinner and then we watched our wedding video and it was amazing.


{Susan G. Koman - 3 day walk}

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was so emotional to see thousands of people fighting for the same cause. We walked 60 miles in 3 days :) Here are some pictures of the walk. Before the walk

O.A.R. take 2

The O.A.R concet was so awesome. Jeff and I drove up to St. Augestine for the night to go see them. They played an extra long set because this was there last stop on tour. We could not have asked for a better concert! They played all of our favorite songs, the crowd sang happy birthday to Mark (lead singer), and the weather was perfect!

Jeff and I


OAR concert

Jeff and I went to the O.A.R. concert last night. It was such a great show. Jeff was able to get us the best tickets ever! Front and center...yep that is what i said. I could not believe the seats when we first got there, I kept asking Jeff are we in the right place.

We are going to there show this weekend and if it is as good as last nights then we are going to have fun in St. Augustine!!!

Back to SPC

Well i started school again... and the class i am taking is algebra. Probably my worst subject ever! It is not that i don't like math, it just does not seem to click with me :). I will let you know how things are going with it.



We are back from our amazing cruise!!! It was so nice to get away and relax! The cruise was to honor my grandparents 50th anniversary. I am so blessed that I have great rolemodels like them in my life. Here are some pics! :)
