Falling Behind Already

Well, it appears I am not off to a very good start with my blog and I have a lot of catching up to do.

It snowed so much over the week of Christmas. Luckily, I was taking some time off from work, but I really couldn’t go anywhere because of the snow. I did get some cute pictures of the dogs (Savvy and Kaylee), cat (Katie), and of the boyfriend.

I got a candy apple red electric guitar, Fender Starcaster. It is so sweet! I have learned three power notes so far. I have a long way to go, but it is fun to play.

Christmas Eve our modem died. We thought we had to wait two days to get a new modem, but we actually had an extra. I do not know what we would have done if we didn’t have internet for two days. It would have been horrible!!! Maybe that is a tad bit of an exaggeration because I still would have been able to play video games. It would have been a little sad though because I had gotten the expansion for WoW the night before as a present. I could have chosen any of my other consoles to play though.

I baked a ton of cookies on Christmas Eve; Sour Cream Cookies, Snickerdoodles, Macaroons, and Molasses Cookies with a Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. I also made some molasses dog biscuits, which they absolutely love. My macaroons turned out a little on the sugary side. I was a little disappointed, but my egg whites wouldn’t stiffen so I did not know what to do.

The day after Christmas we went to Comcast, our cable company, and we stood in line for almost an hour to get a DVR. Ugh! While it was a long wait, my boyfriend is thrilled we have DVR now. He DVR’d a ton of House episodes. Great show, but I think I am having House overload.

Our Christmas tree is dead already. For some reason it seemed like it did not like the water we gave it. I think the garbage people aren’t picking up the trees until next weekend, which is a major bummer. We can’t turn on the lights on the tree because we are afraid it may catch on fire. The boyfriend is in charge of taking down the lights and ornaments tomorrow.

That’s all for now!


  1. I like your new layout! and your guitar is awesome!

  2. Savvy looks ferocious in that first pic... I would also like some snickerdoodles, please.
