It's Been Awhile

Wow, it has certainly been awhile since I've posted anything. Here's what's happened since July:

-New house

-New car

-Start grad school

-Puppy for bday

-Vikings have good first half of season

-Finish first semester of grad school

-Go to STL for T-giving

-Vikings have pretty stinky 2nd half, but miraculously still clinch 1st round bye

-Gain a new, adorable nephew

-Go to Vegas

-Go to Roch for Xmas

-Hibernate from cold for New Year's

Now we have entered the seriously depressing deep freeze of winter. Must book warm weather trip ASAP!! However, I've decided that anytime I think about whining about the cold I am just going to think happy thoughts... like this pic.

Thanks To The Prezzzz

I only got about 2 hours of sleep last night because tomorrow is a VERY big day. Tomorrow my husband and I will enter a whole new realm of life called home ownership (mainly thanks to the first time home owner's credit from the stimilus plan). And, as soon as we finish closing on our house we are going straight to the Nissan dealership and picking up our brand new Nissan Cube and giving them our "Clunker".

So, I just wanted to take a moment and say:

Thanks Obama for the $4500 for the new car and $8000 towards the new house. You're the best.

Celine Dion and Same Sex Marriage

I don't listen to Celine Dion, but I would never hate on anyone for listening to her. I mean, she's got a good voice. It's just not for me. But I would never yell at you if it made you happyl

Here is probably the best line that my husband has ever uttered to me:

"I would say that you should go to therapy... but they would just tell you to leave me."

A Tale of Two Birds

Last weekend we went to Vegas. Normally I love Vegas - sunshine, great shopping, great food, etc. Chris plays a little blackjack. We're both happy. Well, this trip was not even close to fantastic. The weather in Vegas was incredibly miserable - 40 mph wind gusts that prevented you from walking outside and if you did go out, you'd get dirt blowing in your face and feel like hotel signs were going to collapse on you. Mix this with 55 degree weather and we were better off staying home. Plus, I just wasn't in the mood to shop (blast this darn economy) and Chris didn't come home a big winner in blackjack. What a stinky trip. Needless to say, it left a bad taste in my mouth and I AM DONE with Vegas for a long time. To confirm the fact that I am done with Vegas for a really long time, when we got home there was a dead bird once again on our front steps after it flew directly into our big "picture" window. I say "once again" because the last time that we got home from Vegas we had a bird on our front steps as well. It's like we have so much debauchery in Vegas that we cause nature to die. So, yeah, I'm done with Vegas.

Like Me

I want a goldendoodle. One of the many reasons I want this specific type of dog is because I think owners and their special little guys should look just a tad alike. These women take it to the extreme... (it's quite possibly one of the best photos ever:)...
As soon as I get my pup, I hope to have a picture to rival this one.

Last Friday I was getting my husband ready for work and he was complaining how his dress shirts are getting so tight. "All of my clothes are shrinking." Needless to say, it's winter in MN and we are not as active as in the summer. Anyways, he came up with a fantastic solution which would allow him to breathe but still appear that he was wearing a collared shirt under his sweater... a dickie! As soon as he said that word, I cracked up. I hadn't thought of dickies in forever, let alone a homemade dickie. I wish I still had one, I'd rock it.
