Next week I'll post more about Christmas-including photos! But in the meantime I just wanted to say how thankful I am… Not only bc of non material items but bc of some of the gifts I received this year….#1 My parents gave myself, Steve, my sister Ashley & her fiancĂ©' Scott these home made certificates towards our dear family friend Kelly Lewis' wedding in NC this Summer! Kelly is getting married roughly 15 mins away from where my parents are retiring this Spring! SCORE!!! :)…..#2 Again, Im all about the little things….one of our Sales Reps @ work (COX) gave this mug & cookie set the other day as a thank you for all that I do for her! How sweet! It's nice to know when someone appreciates what you do!.........As far as what Steve got me…just to name a few things….A combination Old School Nintendo/Super Nintendo/Sega game system, a portable ipod/radio/CD player, PJs & clothes from Victoria's Secret, make-up stocking stuffers from & more!!!

Speaking of New Years...tonight we are hanging out w/ a few friends...1 is a dress up gathering & the other is more low key. Ill be rocking turquoise tights! I'm pretty excited about it! I love the look of colorful tights...but when you live in a small town you don't really get much of a chance to dress up, let alone funky! To top off my look I went @ got a quick manicure last night @ Salon 41 which is located pretty much in our backyard. The Salon is named after the Dave Matthews Band song "41" (see lyrics below)...Im not a huge DMB fan (to be honest-Sorry Hila & Bobby!) but the salon's decorations coincide w/ the band! Tons of photos, memorabilia, lyrics written on the wall, vinyl records & more!
Don't mind my boney fingers.

"Come and seeI swear by now I’m playing time
I against my troubles
I’m coming slow but speeding
Do you wish a dance and while i’m
In the front
The play on time is won
But the difficulty is coming here
I will go in this way
And find my own way out
I wont tell you to stay
But I’m coming to much more
All at once the ghosts come back
Reeling in you now
What if they came down crushing
Remember when I used to play for
All of the loneliness that nobody
Notice now
I’m begging slow I’m coming here
Only waiting I wanted to stay
I wanted to play
I wanted to love you
I’m only this far
And only tomorrow leads my way
I’m coming waltzing back and moving into your head
Please, I wouldnt pass this by
I would take any more than
What sort of man goes by
I will bring water
Why wont you ever be glad
It melts into wonder
I came in praying for you
Why wont you run
In the rain and play
Let the tears splash all over you..."
