Not Me Monday

I do not want to get a portrait lens for our camera. Nope, I'm totally content with lens we have and only want a zoom.

We did not enjoy the gorgeous day on Sunday and head out to the Preserve. Who enjoys the outdoors in the middle of November? I also did not take off my sweater because I was hot. Nope, no I.

I did not land on my bad ankle .3679 seconds after this shot. I did not crumpled to the ground in pain. Not me. I did not later climb a fence for a picture and attempt to climb a tree even with the shots of pain shooting down my ankle.
We did not plan our outfits and take Christmas pictures.
I didn't get awesome new was I was in the middle of a store and let out a little squeal and do a little dance. Nope. I'm waaayyy to cool to let emotion like that show in a public place like that.

I did not have a bat fly past my face in the middle of church! No way would a bat get inside our church.

Friday Night Fun - Delta Night

Once a quarter (was my school the only one that called them marking periods? Or are quarters the 'new' name?) Kevin's school host a night called Delta night. The middle schoolers come back to school for fun activities, like, game night, movie night, ice cream sundae night, etc. Last night was movie night and the 7th grade was in charge of it, ie. we man-ed the snack table and kept an eye on the kids who tried entered the hallway. The parents stepped up and brought lots of yummy snacks and candy, AND we had a popcorn machine! How sweet is that?
First you had to pour the "butter-like" substance in and wait for it to melt, then you add the kernals and watch 'em POP!


Definately a good way to get a sugar high! I'm sure that the parents loved us pumping their children full of sugar and then sending them home. :-)

Christmas is fast approaching...

I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is just over 2 weeks away!!! And a measly month later is Christmas! Recently I have been bitten by the craft bug. I, by no means consider myself crafty. That's my mom. She always had some crazy, creative project up her sleeve. But the past few weeks I've been in craft mode. I really would love to make a homemade gift for everyone in my family for Christmas. Some people I have figured out, others I'm not sure about.

That's why I was super excited to find out that Just A Girl is having a "I Can Make That" party! Over 150 people have linked up with tutorials to make all different fun presents! I've only clicked on a few so far, but there are a lot of great suggestions that are easy to do. I'm really excited to try some!

Check it out and get some fantastic ideas!

Not Me Monday!

I'm joining up with MckMama's Not Me Mondays


I did not come home every night last week and either take a 2 hour nap, or fall asleep by 8. Nope. Not me. I have way to much that needs done to spend that much time sleeping.

I did not go to a work seminar in Lancaster on Tuesday. It did not happen to be at the hotel that my ex used to work at...and he does not still work there 6 years later. And I definitely didn't run into him and walked in late to my seminar. No way. I would never be late for something, especially something my work was paying for.

I did not consider eating Qdoba take-out a dinner date with Kevin. No way. Qdoba is definitely not the high class enough to be even considered.

I did not spend Saturday night on the couch by myself. No way Jose. I have way too many friends to spend a Saturday night alone. I did not spend that time watching some of the Jonas marathon. No way would I ever be caught watching a Disney show like that. Never.

We did not get a Staples Easy button at work. I definitely wasn't super excited about it and kept hitting it to see if it said anything other than "That was easy." I would never be amused by something that silly. Nope not me.

Freak Out

I remember when I was younger and had to stay home alone, I would get freaked out. It probably didn't help that we lived in the middle of the woods with the closest neighbor outside of screaming distance.

I would hear a floorboard creak upstairs and immediately there was someone else in the house. Why they broke in upstairs, I'm not sure, but they did, and now they were going to come down the stairs to get me! I was always a little relieved when the cat came sprinting down, but part of me stayed on guard. Any sound that was out of the norm would blow up into some huge crazy story in my head. Did I mention that I have an overactive imagination?

Kevin is out camping with the boys and I am stuck home alone. Being the bum that I am, I'm sitting on the couch watching The Office and making beads when I hear a loud noise back in the bedroom. Crap! What was that? We live in the 3rd floor condo, there's no way someone could be in here, right? I flick on the hall light because there's no way I'm walking back a dark hallway. As I reach our room and turn on the light I start to laugh, partly still freaked out, partly relieved to know the cause of the noise.

For some reason one of the blinds decided that it didn't want to be down and shot up. Why? How? I'm still trying to figure that out. We've lived here for over a year and it has never happened before. Why did it have to happen when I'm here alone? So not cool. I may be sleeping on the couch tonight...with the TV on to keep me company...

Philly Phever


I have never been one much for baseball. It may be the American sport, but it's so slow. I've been to one professional game in my life and it lasted 16 innings...not a good impression.

Yet some how I find myself captivated by the game the past few weeks. Maybe it's because it's the only thing I hear about at work. Maybe because it's the only thing I hear about ever. Maybe I'm actually realizing it's not quite as boring as I once thought. It may not have the action like football, but definitely has it's moments. I find myself taking stats and plays from the previous games and it's scary. How do I get so caught up in a game I once despise? I mean the only good thing about the game is cute boys in tight pants, right? Oh yeah, I'm not in grade school any more.

So as I lay on the couch yawning and barely able to keep my eyes open, I find myself unable to go to bed as this may be the deciding game. If we can pull this game off we only need one more for the series. If we don't, than it's all over. Oh the pressure.

We need to load the bases and then hit a home run, and then do it again. No lead is too great against the Yankees. We got the skillz, we just have to use it!

P.S. Is it just me or is our team much better looking too?
