Things I Learned This Thursday


Family Photo Collage

1. We didn't need to buy gifts for each other this year. And you know what? We don't miss them.

2. It's nice to be spending all these weeks on our own but we do miss the kids.

3. I love Swagbucks! I had enough bucks saved up that I redeemed them for a couple of gifts for Marcus and Kiana!

4. Don't forget to tip the special people in your life. "T", Kiana and I's hairstylist is so much fun and talented! I couldn't let Christmas go by without letting her know what she means to us.

5. The rainstorms that hit Las Vegas reminded me how dangerous too much rain can be. There were lots of car accidents and unfortunately a few fatalities.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Time is Here!

Charles is relaxing watching episodes of Detroit 187 on Hulu. I've still have 2 more hours of work and then I can join him!

What's your favorite movie to watch when you need a chuckle?

When Harry Met Sally is one of my all time favorites! It's available for watch instantly on Netflix.

We Miss You Marcus and Kiana

The apartment is clean and quiet without Marcus and Kiana. It really hit me yesterday how much I miss them. Merry Christmas little ones.

They're at a Christmas Party



Charles and I haven't heard from Marcus and Kiana for a couple of days so I decided to give them a call. They've been busy attending various Christmas parties and were actually at one when we called.

I'm glad the kids are having such a great time in Salt Lake City.

It's good to know that we don't miss out on cooking, gardening and home decor shows after cancelling cable.

Menu Plan Monday ~ December 20, 2010


Marcus and Kiana, our teens, are having a great time in Salt Lake City. They're visiting Kiana's dad and family.

Every time we talk to them they comment on the clean air and streets. If you've ever lived in Las Vegas you'll know why they love this change of pace.

They went on a tour of the outside of the Salt Lake Temple. I hope they took lots of photos.

The hubby and I have been enjoying our time too. He took me out for lunch to Wild Buffalo Wings and had breakfast at IHOP. On Sunday, we went to Walmart and did some window shopping.

He's also been putting on the apron and making me dinner. Afterwards, we watch a DVD on Netflix or catch up on a TV series on Hulu. This so reminds me of when we were dating.

Now onto this week's menu plan. Thank you to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Mondays. Oh, don't miss out on my $30 IHOP gift card giveaway!

Window Shopping at Walmart - Couple Time



After breakfast at IHOP Charles and I decided to take a stroll through Walmart. We grabbed a cart and begin our walk through the home decor aisles.

We had fun checking out the variety of cookware sets. I had no idea that they carried Paula Deen. She has a lovely collection of cookware. We really like the Anodized Better Homes and Gardens set. Their pieces have a good weight and look like they'll hold up.

I found some measuring spoons and cups for only 97 cents and knew I had to buy them. Charles found a knife set and block display that he really liked. I decided to keep it in mind for a Just Because gift.

It's fun walking the aisles, chatting with customers and checking out new products. We always have a great time window shopping together.

Are You Mailing Christmas Cards This Year?



For the last 6 years I've participated in Workplace Like Home's Christmas card exchange. Workplace Like Home is an online virtual water cooler for work at home and telecommuters.

It's refreshing to open our mailbox and receive handmade and store bought Christmas cards from around the US.

I also enjoy addressing and mailing our cards. This year I decided to do a photo collage through Snapfish.
