While I was reminiscing I realized that I actually had all the ingredients I needed to make what I would've ordered. And that meant I could stay in my pajamas just a little longer.
Coffee with cream and sugar
Hash brown scattered, smothered, covered, and capped (with onions, cheese, and mushrooms)

I admit it,...I love Alternative music! Way up there, in the stations no one pays attention to, are my all time favorites. When I'm vegging out at home on a Friday or while I'm cleaning, I turn on music choice channels 917 or 918. I'm not familiar with a lot of the artists and I don't know the words to the songs ( yet :), ) but the music speaks to me. It reminds me of the music they play in all the best movies either during a great flashback scene or while the credits are rolling. (Am I the only one that sits there and wants to hear the song finish?) It has so much emotion and stirs something within me I didn't know was there. I love that you can hear the guitar and the honesty. It puts a smile on my face. It makes me want to dance around the living room with the vacuum and not care what anyone thinks. It makes me feel free and alive. My only wish is that they had an Alternative radio station in my area. I can imagine this music going great with my windows down and driving, the bright sun shining down on me while I think about how great this moment is.

Anyway, before it gets to far from Christmas, I wanted to show you guys my tree. There really is no theme, rhyme, or reason to it. Just love, really.
|This is with no filters or special effects! Isn't it pretty?!|
Of all the ornaments on our Christmas Tree this one is my favorite. Five years ago on Christmas morning, my then boyfriend handed me a box and this ornament was inside. I thought it was so cute and artistic and sweet that he made me something. So I'm looking at it and I turn it around to see the other side and I'm in complete shock. I looked up at him and he had gotten down on one knee and opened up the ornament. He removed some of the tinsel and in the middle was a tiny little black box. As you already know, I said YES!
|I forgot to get a picture of the front :( but here is the back|
|This zebra has the longest eyelashes. I'm so jealous!|
|There are boy ornaments too!|
|This made me think of my husband because he likes cheese.|
Every year we let the kiddos pick out a new ornament for our tree. It's usually pretty difficult for them to make up their minds when they see all the colors and sparkles. But this year they knew exactly what they wanted and it took all of two seconds. How often does that happen?!
|Peach squealed when she saw this. She loves unicorns, the color pink and all things sparkly. This was MADE for her!|
|Teddy loves animal prints and pandas. I let her get both since they were cheap.|

After my stomach is full from lunch I start to feel sleepy, but I don't want to take a nap yet because I'm at a good part in the book I'm reading. So I get out my favorite coffee mug, stick it in the Keurig, and press brew. I can't remember a single time in my life where I didn't love the smell or sound of coffee brewing. I've tried to be like my mother and drink my coffee black, but I just can't. It's against my religion! I prefer mine with creamer and today it's going to be Hazelnut.
No matter the weather outside it always seems cool in the house and I end up curling up in this blanket on the couch. It was a wedding present from my husband's cousin and I'm pretty sure she made it herself. In my opinion handmade gifts are better than anything you can buy at the store.
I love getting lost in books! I love flipping the pages and seeing what others have written or left behind. I love the smell of paper and the journey it took to get to the used book store. But when I can't get to the store I turn to my Kindle. I have found a lot of good cheap ebooks that are worthy of my Saturday's.
I click on the book I've been reading and pick up where I left off. I read page after page while sipping my coffee and thinking, "why does every single woman own a cat" and "What are you thinking getting involved with a married priest?!"
While I read I change positions a lot. I start out sitting with my legs curled up to one side. My cat Floppy prefers this position because he has a nice little nest to nap in. Then I'll prop my legs up on the coffee table or stretch them out lengthwise one the couch. Pretty soon I'm laying on my back with my kindle in my hands........reading......reading........reading. The next thing I know my hands are letting go and my Kindle smacks me in the face and I realize I had fallen asleep. No lie, this happens almost every week. This is also another reason why I prefer books to my kindle, because they don't hurt as bad when they hit you.
