So that the whole world knows (and for my records)…

Matt says I never remember when he does nice and thoughtful things for me. So, I’m going to take this moment to declare to the Internets, and you all, that Matt bought me the Tiffany’s necklace I’ve been wanting. Actually, I’ve been pining for this little beaut since 1996. A gift worth it’s wait (and weight- the sucker is heavy and yet I appreciate it’s heaviness on my neck). Doesn’t it look purrrrty??

My snow baby

My snow baby

Jamie got snow for Christmas!

This pic is actually before we went outside, but I couldn’t stop laughing cause Jamie couldn’t move her arms and legs. It really was hilarious (and maybe a little mean now that I think about it…)

And here she is enjoying the snow….


Have you ever seen a cuter snow baby?? (I don’t think so!!!)

Is this for real life?

Is this for real life?

I got one of my weekly baby newsletters this week. You know the ones I’m talking about- “Your baby is 13 weeks old!”

Anyway, know how sometimes they put ads in them? Well, when I finally checked my email after about a week and half of little to no internet, I had this link waiting for me.

If you want to play a fun little game, go here first and then try to guess what it is.

As for the Tow’s and Christmas….we made it on the plane with no problems. Jamie got a bottle as we took off, she fell asleep before we were completely up, and then slept until we landed. So much for all that worrying. And guess what? We had snow for Jamie’s first Christmas! I’ll post pics as soon as I can!

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!!

I’ve been a very bad blogger cause I procrastinated Christmas, so I had some catching up to do!

The good news is that I did indeed pull it off.

The better news is that I must have been a VERY GOOD Girl this year, cause Santa brought me that Tiffany’s necklace I’ve been wanting!!! Can you believe it?! He left it hanging on the tree just for me!

The bad news is that I messed up my holiday cards…I didn’t get enough of them, and there are about 10-15 of my friends/family that didn’t get one from me. It was just too cute not to share, so here it is!

First Family Road Trip- Check!

First Family Road Trip- Check!

We took the long drive down to Miami this weekend to see my little sister graduate from Physician Assistant school. She’s practically a doctor now! Can you believe it??

CONGRATULATIONS, SISSY!!!!

AND, the Tow family survived it’s first 5 hour car drive. Another big milestone, if you ask me…interesting travelling with an infant…I swear someone could write a book on efficiently travelling with children and make a lot of money on it (not me- I’m still learning).

Oh, and I am seriously exhausted from this little weekend trip! Next big step- flying with an infant. Oy vey!

I think I got punked at Taco Bell

I think I got punked at Taco Bell

So I stopped at Taco Bell for a couple of taco’s fresca style (only a couple hundred calories total!) and this is what happened:

“Yes, I’d like to get a crunchy tac… “

“Is that aaaalllll?” (Asian accent)

“Uh, no. No meat, please. Just beans. Fresca style.”

“Is that aaaalllll?” (Asian accent)

“Um, no. 2 of those please and…”

“Is that aaaalllll?” (Asian accent)

Nooo. And a…”

“Is that aaaalllll?” (Asian accent)

“No. Can I have a medium diet pepsi?”

“Is that aaaalllll?” (Asian accent)

“Yes.”

“That’s all.”

“$3.82, please.”

So, I drive up to the window and this little Asian (adorable) older woman hands me my drink and says,

Ok. Bye.”

And I say, “Wait. What about my…”

And the lady throws me my tacos and says, “Ok. Bye.”

This happened to me in real life. If I didn’t have a sense of humor, I might actually be pissed off about this!

The Irony

The Irony

Remember when I saw the shuttle launch and got that shirt I love that says:

“Does this shirt make me look weightless?”

Well, the answer is, “No.” It does not make me look weightless. It makes me look fat, actually. Hmmm….Too bad that’s my favorite shirt. Looks like I’ll be trying to fit into that for the next couple of months…

Anyway, I’ve had a bit of writer’s block these day’s. I tend to have this annoying habit (just ask my sister and my husband) of only being able to concentrate on one thing at a time. Since I’m currently making Christmas crafts, my writing is lagging.

(Don’t ask me why I’m trying to make about 100 Christmas crafts and treats while I have a baby. I can’t help it. It’s like a disease..)

Which reminds me….I’m supposed to start writing this book by the end of the year. I told you I have about 3000 outlines of books I’ve wanted to write in the past. Can you all do me a favor and leave me a comment (either on here or on facebook) the genre of book you prefer to read. It’s just a little research I’m doing so I know what angle to start at. I’m torn between a couple of different stories I’ve had in my head for a while.

Thanks for the help!

PS- You’ll be happy to know that I’ve got most of my laundry done and Elaine’s gift purchased for her graduation. OH- and I cleaned both my bathrooms. Looks like I’m getting some things done finally!

PPS- Ok, yeah I know you don’t care about that…LOL!
