Holiday on the Farm

{Thursday December 23, 2010}

Had to work today, long day dragged on.
After work straight to family's house for dinner and a game of dominoes. Tapped out early and went home. Many people my age would be out drinking and partying, but not me. I went home and decided a hot bath would be more relaxing. I have a HUGE garden tub in my home and I use it mostly in the winter months. There is nothing more relaxing and soothing to the soul. Grab a book add some bubbles and it can be a revitalizing escape if you let it be.

Rise and shine well rested. Off to families house again. Start with the best biscuits and gravy EVAR! Visited for a while, then off to a movie
(Little Fockers ~ Not as Good as the Other two)

Then back to families home for gift exchanges, two back to back. Oh and guess what, I got a new pair of scissors! No more Trauma Shears in my videos.

End that night with More Tamales & a White Russian my drink of choice during the holidays... .. .

{Friday December 25, 2010}

Meet with family at my favorite place, The Farm.
More food and catching up.

Then just spending time taking in the sights.

You can see why its my favorite place right? It is so peaceful out there.

Lots of birds, too.

and the sunset, Amazing ... .. .
Sticking around longer means you get to see the deer that come out in droves!

So my friends I will leave you with that.
No new video up this weekend, I am taking time off.

Hope you and your family have a Wonderful Holiday Season.

Your Friend,

Tamales & Fury Vests


{Tamale Festival}

This weekend there was a tamale cook off near our town. Dragged lots of family out to sample the different was super crowded BUT the food made up for it. It was a nice adventure for the weekend...

And Yes I have made tamales before, in fact every year I help spread or mix the masa for them. Family gets together and makes a HUGE batch for Christmas. This year I think we made 30 dozen. We are not talking about the folded variety here either, we are talking about the ones that are tied off on the ends and resemble small torpedoes.

{Fury Vest}

Finally found a Fury Vest which is labeled a fashion trend this winter 2010. Have to admit I have no fur in my wardrobe and I do LOVE it. Just harder to pull off where I live when its usually in the triple digits.

I looked at F21 when I made my recent trip and had no luck. The only one they had was white and I thought I would look like The Abominable Snowman !?

Uploaded a new video to show an outfit idea. Trying to take something from the runway and wear it real-way without getting funny looks...

Hair, Run Ins and Zippers

Well this weekend flew by way too fast.

Work has been hectic for me def looking toward some time off even if its just an extra day or two...

Made a trip to my hairstylist last night. My roots where looking a little BAD...Decided to ask for a lighter blond. Which I got BUT the stylist weaved in Grey/Violet highlights here and there and well, it really looked Grey to me - others confirmed it was noticeable. Washed it when I got home, the Grey came out a bit, washed again this morning, seems to be fading out. I was to the point where I would go to Sally's buy the big tub of bleach and just go totally blond to get rid of it. There is nothing worse then your hair not coming out the way you want / like....I swear it is the worst feeling.......

On top of THAT.....

Today I ran into the local grocery store. It was one of those Sundays where I was up at six with an errands to run. Needless to say I left the house with no makeup and an outfit that was non inspirational. And IT happened

the dreaded "Run Into Someone You Know"

I was like is that who I think it is??? Nah, and of course they come walking around the corner....I felt like a dear caught in the headlights, promptly turned around and left the store as fast as I could. Did not mean to be rude to this person but my embarrassment affected my better judgment =[

{Changing Subjects}

Time to post an new vid.

This is a project I recorded for the second time. First time around the footage was corrupted somehow and refused to convert...

Inspired by a trip to Target where I found the Embellishment of something Inspiring


Another project another day watch below.....

Hope to inspire others to be resourceful and creative.

Forever 21 Haul & More

Well my Christmas shopping came early this year.

Check my find's here:

Started at one of my fav store where they where having some serious Starbucks cutbacks?!

{Mini Toffee Frap}

The Starbucks was handy out free samples in the morning was rather nice, needed the little sugar rush before starting a long day of shopping. I do like Christmas shopping but only early, cannot stand the crowds and traffic that gets worse as Christmas gets closer...

I have noticed that the drivers in my town have gotten progressively insane, pulling out too soon when they should have just waited, or passing a car and speeding past only to stop at the same light everyone else did....lets face it no one needs a wreck and especially Not this time of year.

Here's hoping that We all have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!
