Party Overload

This past week-end we were party overloaded. Most of our family was getting together that week-end because of work schedules, being the week-end before Christmas and traveling for some. It was okay with me because I was off that week-end!! We were super busy but we loved every minute of it. I think the only time we were home was to sleep and then Jarod and I both had to be back to work monday morning. Boo!

Saturday we went to my Grandma Nelson's for lunch and then to my mom and dad's for supper. At my grandma's we ate, talked, and just had fun just watching all the little kiddos play...there are 6 great-grandkids already! It was a full house and my grandma says her trailer is getting too small to hold everyone. It was pretty full but we didn't mind it:) At my mom and dad's we opened gifts, ate Chilli ( I think they have the best Chilli) and just talked. I gave my mom a gift card to Head over Heelz (Spa) so we can have a girls day out!! I can't wait till we can go. I told her she can use the gift card and then I will pay for lunch also.

Sunday we went to Church and then off to see my Grandpa Mathies. We could only stay for about 2 1/2 hours b/c we then had to head over to the Knepp's Christmas. We had taco's for supper, opened gifts and played Pictionary. We play that game every Christmas and we all LOVE it!! That is seriously one of my favorite games!! It is so neat to see family's grow and have such wonderful people in our life. We couldn't have asked for a better week-end.

New Wheels!

This past week-end I finally got Jarod to go look at a vehicle with me and guess what....we got new wheels!!! This past fall we thought we would get a different vehicle and then we decided we might wait until winter and then we were going to wait until spring. Well I was getting pretty excited and started looking this past week at cars and found one that we both really liked. We already had our money saved up to get a different vehicle so we thought we would check it out. We drove to Louisville saturday b/c they seemed to have the best prices on the vehicle we were looking at...which was a Nissan Maxima. I drove the car and just wasn't that into the way it drove. We looked around the lot and I wanted to check the Nissano Murano out. I have always liked those vehicles too! I asked if they had any used they didn't:( But wait he knew of a used one that he would have to go get....we drove it...and loved it. So here I am now with our 2006 Nissan Murano. Yay!!! I think I am a SUV kinda gal;) 

Now all I want to do is drive it. haha. I know when I get a different vehicle I want to keep it really clean at first. That didn't happen b/c monday morning it snowed and I had to go to work. I thought about calling in....just kidding. haha. I am not that bad. It is A LOT more reliable on the snow than my Mustang though....I think anything would be compared to a sports car!

Well....I will post later this week about our week/week-end. Hope everyone is having a great day:) 

 One last pic. with my Tang:( I will miss that car.

Welcome December

It is already December and only 23 days til Christmas!! So exciting! I love Christmas time...the joy, lights/decorations, food, family/friends and the meaning behind Christmas. We had a great Thanksgiving last week and got to spend some time with family. We only had one get together on Thanksgiving day this year so it was more relaxed and we even had time to watch The Elf that night. We LOVE that movie!!! Seriously it is a must to watch around Christmas time. On Thanksgiving we ate lunch, played games, talked and looked at black friday advertisements. haha. My family likes to go shopping that day. I debated and did end up going too, and it really wasn't that bad. I got some good deals and even got a Dyson vacuum. Exciting!! I have wanted one for a while now. Our old vaccum Jarod had a couple years before we were even married and it had no sucking power. Well, we tried the new vacuum out right away and I was amazed at how much better it was!! I love it:) 

This past week-end I had to work and this week my parents and I went to French Lick for part of the day. My mom has been wanting to walk through the hotels and look at the Christmas decorations and I was all up for it! We walked through both of the hotels and I have to say they are both very pretty. It was neat looking at the pictures they had before they restored the hotels. Can you imagine if they would have never restored them?! They are such amazing buildings. We did go in the casino for about 15 whole minutes. haha. I am not a gambler but we mostly looked around. I think my mom spent $3. She said she likes pulling the handle...oh mom;)

Mom holding her nose. The sulfur well smelled like rotten eggs. That will wake you up!

Other than that I work the next two days and I don't know what we have planned for this week-end. After going to French Lick I would like to go see their show "It's A Wonderful Life".  I dunno though...don't know if Jarod will like it. We will have to see.

Take care and stay dry today!!
