Friday's Meme's

I have been so super busy lately with an exciting new project for my friend Luca, so I haven't had much time to keep up with my blog lately :( For now, here are some Friday meme's...maybe you will find out some silly stuff about me you didn't already know :)

1. Snow angels.

2. I'm looking forward to Oma Lani coming for Christmas.

3. My coffee this morning is the best coffee ever! (it was a loooong night again lastnight)

4. One of my favorite old tv shows is Magnum P.I.

5. I'm done with cheese balls.

6. The most enjoyable thing around the holidays is everything! I love this time of year, especially since it doesn't involve snow this time :)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to bed early, tomorrow my plans include getting up early and going shopping out of town again (am I crazy?!) and Sunday, I want to be lazy and watch movies all day!


"This year, the economy in its current state has really hurt a lot of people. So this week’s meme is about spreading holiday cheer on a budget!" ~ from Friday Fun

1. Did you do the so fun Black Friday shopping? No, but we did do some online shopping!Did you get any really good deals? Yes, I think so! And, it is so much easier then fighting the crowds, that's for sure!
2. Does your family do gifts for everyone or do you draw names? We have been meaning to do the name drawing thing, but we all live in different parts of the states now! I wonder if there is a virtual way of doing it? hmmmmm
3. About how many people do you have to gift this year? Too many! haha (j/k!)

4. How about that big holiday meal? We don't know what we are doing for a holiday meal yet, but it is just going to be me, Dave, Oma, and the twins this year...so whatever we have, it won't be too big or pricey.
5. What are your top 5 tips for saving money this year on gifts? Well, my advice is a little bit late...because I did most of my Christmas shopping this summer! If you see something on sale that you think someone would like for Christmas, grab it, even if it is only May or June :) They also tend to jack up the prices right before the holidays too, so shop early...that's my advice! That is my top 1 tip, I got nothing else, sorry!

Childhood Indulgences

  1. When did you last have a mid-day nap? Oh wow, ummm, maybe a couple of months ago? I try to have one every day while the kids are napping, but it never works out!
  2. When did you last have milk and cookies? Ohhh, the other night....love the Oreo's :)
  3. When did you last have a bubble bath? Not since I was pregnant
  4. When did you last jump on the furniture? I was probably 6 or 7?
  5. When did you last play in the mud? When I was 4, my brother and I used to make mud pie's and we actually took a bite once...it didn't taste like brown sugar :( soooo disappointing!


Manic Monday

Manic Monday #144

It's "Cyber Monday" today, the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season in the United States. Do you do much online shopping, holiday or otherwise? Yes...I am kind of an amazon.com addict! But it's cool, I got most of my shopping done earlier in the year, so it's a much less stressful holiday this year!

Are you a Mac or a PC user? Why? I am a pc user just cause I can't afford a Mac! I would love to get one someday. I love the one my older brother has....very cool :)

What website do you spend more time on than you care to admit? Facebook! It's quite addicting :)

Is he Korean?

his weekend we went to the commissary @ a "nearby" AFB ....we go every other week or so and stock up on baby food and whatnot. Anyways...most of the people who work the check outs are older Korean women (I think I have mentioned them before?), and there is this one lady who says the SAME thing to us every time! We go often enough for her to remember us, but she still acts as if she is seeing us for the first time...and she always points to my husband and asks, "Is he Korean?", and I say no, he is Chinese....I don't even go into the whole Indonesian thing now cause it just confuses her. Then she will say to him, "You look more Korean then Chinese!". He just smiles and nods and we try to get out of there as fast as possible before the other ladies come over and hijack Peanut from us and show her to the other ladies. She did look at Brayden this time and said he looked more asian then Bella. That's a first, nobody says that! I think it's true though...Bella looks like her dad who is asian so they just think she looks more asian...when really, she is just a white version of Dave. Brayden has the same coloring as Dave and his eyes are definitly more asian....Bella just looks like an Anime character, hehe.

So, next time she asks, I think I will just say...why yes, he IS Korean....good eye!
