All I Want for Christmas is…

Peace on Earth.

No, not really.  I mean it would be great, but let’s face it, it’s never going to happen.  People have been fighting for the right to own someone else’s land basically since time began.  No need to worry about that changing any time soon.

Instead, I’d like to have the following please…

The Pioneer Woman’s cookbook
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
A decent Point and Shoot camera

Bonus items would include:

Ghirardelli anything really…
Pickled Okra…. yum.
Life is Good – Good Karma sleep pants OR any nice comfy pj’s will do.

What’s on your “want” list?

Fourth Day of Christmas

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

First snow on Nov. 26th, 2010

Happy December!  We had our first snow of the season the day after Thanksgiving.  It was literally 70+ degrees on Thanksgiving day, then we wake up to about an inch of snow on Friday morning.  We Kentuckians always say if you don’t like the weather… just wait 10 minutes.

An Adventure in Early Pregnancy

The world's first Giga coaster, the 310 ft tal...Image via Wikipedia

In keeping with my goal of being more honest and “real” on dis here blog, let me tell you a story.  A story of the crazy roller coaster that has become my innards.

While I am just barely to the 2nd month mark, I’m pretty sure I should buy stock in Metamucil or some other “stool softener” that is acceptable to take while pregnant.  I do not remember ever having this issue with my other two pregnancies.

Unfortunately, I must have eaten too much of that smörgåsbord of Thanksgiving.  I woke up Sunday morning with a horrible tummy ache.  No matter how many trips to the bathroom I made, they were all unsuccessful.  So I did what any worried, frantic person would do.  I overcompensated.  I drank a ginormous glass of eggnog, ate two helpings of salad, and waited.

Finally, finally… success.  Then I took a nap ’cause that’s what pregnant chicks do when your husband has forced you to watch hours upon hours of football in one day.  Don’t get me wrong, I love me some football, but OMG… I can only take so much.  I think this may have been my biggest mistake.  While I was taking a much needed little snooze,  all that lettuce and veggies mixed with that ginormous glass of eggnog was getting all brewed and stewed and fermented.  Suddenly, the throne and I were best friends.  Inseparable we were… for hours.

In the span of one day (really less than 24 hours) I went from one extreme to the next.  Now I’m trying to remind myself to drink at least one glass of 100% juice everyday to avoid this “mishap” again.  I want to know if any of my loyal readers have ever encountered this in their pregnancy (or pregnancies) and what kinds of tips or tricks worked best for you.  I’m going to open a discussion in my Blog Frog community so after leaving  your comments here, head on over to the community to put in your two cents!  If the link doesn’t work for you, then visit the sidebar and click on “Join my Community”.

Bieber Wins, Ruins Music World

I was completely blown away that Justin Bieber would win for “Artist of the Year” at the American Music Awards last night.  Really?  Seriously?  Ewwwww….

He may have made history by being the youngest person ever to win (’cause he’s like 12), in my opinion, it’s a slap in the face to those artists who were also nominated for this award like Lady Gaga and Eminem.

However there were a few high points in the show…

Obviously, Taylor Swift was made for bangs and straight hair.  Absolutely beautiful!!

Kesha is such a train wreck, but I love her for it.  Her performance was crazy bizarre and wonderful all at the same time.

Pink was rockin’ as always, even for a pregnant lady… she’s hot.  Though I’m still not really sure what was going on with her hair.  It reminded me of my grandmother.

Miley Cyrus’ performance renewed my hope that she can move past the Disney Channel.

But the best part of the ENTIRE night would have to have been seeing New Kids on The Block performing again.  Yea, yea, I know that the Backstreet Boys were with them too, but who freakin’ cares!  All of these guys are HOT, HOT, HOT!

What was your take on this year’s American Music Awards?

Most Hilarious Video You Will See All Week

This poor drunk kid decided that Subway was where he was going to get “nuclear”.  I have to warn you that the video does contain “graphic language” so it’s NSFW (or little ears), but really just mute your speakers because you won’t necessarily need the sound to understand how funny this is.  Sadly he is a pre-med student at our local university.  Maybe we should start doing background checks for our doctors…

You can find a copy of the police report here if you feel so inclined. Oooo… almost forgot to mention that he gets tasered at the end.
