Three Things Thursday

Hi all!

I was reading Leigh's blog (All You Need Is Love), and she posted some awesome categories for Three Things Thursday, so I decided to borrow them for this week! Thanks Leigh!

Three things I love about winter:
  1. The smell of our woodstove- it just feels like winter
  2. Snow!!
  3. Pulling our couch on skis behind our truck (Can you say redneck? I know you're jealous!)
Some friends riding our couch. It collapsed shortly after so
Will is currently working on a new and improved version!

Three of the best Christmas presents I have ever got:
  1. My mom got me a gorgeous amethyst ring last year, that was pretty awesome!
  2. A doll that came with a brush thing that put jewels in it's hair when you combed it
  3. Anything Playmobil related. I loved that stuff!
Three of the best memories about Christmas:
  1. Getting up ridiculously early with my brother and sister on Christmas morning, going to peak at the tree and get one present to take back to whichever room we were sleeping in and open!
  2. Setting traps to try to catch Santa on Christmas eve
  3. Going out to find a Christmas tree with my family. We always made a day out of it with sledding, hotdog roasts ect.
Three of my favorite Christmas/holiday songs:
  1. Silver Bells
  2. Holly Jolly Christmas
  3. Silent Night
Three of the worst things about winter:
  1. Cold!
  2. I hate driving in the winter
  3. too much darkness
Three of my favorite holiday/Christmas movies:
  1. Rudolph (the claymation one)
  2. The Grinch (cartoon version of course!)
  3. Elf
 How about you guys? Any Christmas Favorites you want to share?

Three Things Thursday

Welcome to week 2 of Three Things Thursday, your favorite day of the week when I tell you three completely random facts about myself. The theme of this weeks post? Christmas!

1. Christmas is my most favorite holiday ever! I force Will to start tree hunting with me in early November. One time we got pulled over by a Conservation officer who was sure that we were hunting without licenses. He just wouldn't believe that anyone would be out looking for a tree already.
Will, Bax and I out tree hunting last year

 2. I have a thing for ugly Christmas sweaters. So much in fact that I made one for everyone in my family a couple of years ago. I can't find the picture of us all wearing them, but I do have a few from a party I had where I lent them out...
Paige, Nancy, Me, Jenny and Kirsten. I made the ones that Nancy and I are wearing

Nancy, Marshall, Michelle, Heather. I made the one that Michelle is wearing!

 3. When I was in teacher school, we had to put on a musical Christmas production for our class. My group decided to do "Up on the Housetop", and since I don't have a coordinated bone in my body, I was given the role of dancing tree. I think I rocked it, until I almost knocked the power box for my lights over!!
I did sway side to side, I promise I didn't just stand there!!

 So there you have it, my Three Things Thursday, Christmas edition... I feel a part two coming on, I could talk about Christmas forever!!

Santa Shuffle 2012

Happy Monday!

Hubby and I have been talking about taking a weekend getaway to Calgary for some time, and I think I found the perfect weekend- The first weekend of December so we can do the Santa Shuffle 5K! Will has never done a race before, so I think it would be super fun one to do!

Last year my Mom, Grandma, Aunt, friend Adele and I ran The Great Santa Race in Las Vegas. It was fun, but so so cold. It was cool to be a part of that race, enough people ran it that they set the Guinness world record for the most people running a 5k dressed as Santa Claus. I wish I had a photo of the crows- it was unreal!! I do have photos of us dressed up though...
Trying to keep warm!!

Walking back to the hotel- had to take a fence climbing picture!

I'm really looking forward to doing Will's 1st 5K with him (fingers crossed that he has that weekend off from work!!) and hopefully a new 5K PR?? That would be exciting :)

Anyone else out there running a Santa Shuffle, or any other kind of Christmas themed race?

Lazy Sunday

Today has been amazing, I love lazy Sunday afternoons!

We spent the morning at my sister's house visiting her new puppy Bruce!
Baby Bruce!!
He's so fat and cute!!!!

I have been trying to convince Will that Baxter really needs a new puppy best friend... so far it's not working. One day I will win and Baxter will have a new baby sister.

For the rest of the day we have been sitting on the couch watching season 5 of The Office for the 8 millionth time. I just can't get enough. Any other Office fans out there? One of my favorite episodes is the one where Dwight describes his perfect crime.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Three Things Thursday

I've decided to start a weekly post called Three Things Thursday. Each Thursday I will post three random things about myself. Don't pretend you aren't excited to learn more about me!!

1. My tallest friend git married this summer and I was lucky enough to get to be a bridesmaid! She just got her pictures back so I thought I'd share a few...
Pals- Kirsten, Tommy, Paige (the bride!), Moi, Willy, Ali

Paige (Isn't she so gorgeous!! I loved her short dress!), Ali, Me, Crystal

The wedding party- Fact, I was only standing in a tiny hole!

2. I have recently decided to have a "no junk during the week" policy for the month of November. I once went the entire month of November without any junk food, but I decided to cut myself a wee bit of slack and indulge a little on the weekend. I'll keep y'all posted on how that goes.
This is my "I don't know if this is a good idea" face

3. Will and I got a cat for one of our wedding presents. He hated living in the house and quickly became a barn cat. His name is Lenny and he is now training our new cat Mr Norris how to kill mice. They leave me "presents" outside my door most days.
Me and Lenny... Clearly he loves me.
Hope you enjoyed the first ever Three Things Thursday post.... hope you have a happy Thursday!!!
