A little of this and that

To get you in the Christmas spirit, I thought I'd post a picture of the giant tree that is at Newport on the Levee, which is a nice entertainment, dining and shopping area in Northern Kentucky. My sweetie and I like to go over there and grab a bite to eat and hang out at Barnes and Noble. I know we're really exciting.
And this is how I think I'm getting my hair cut today. That's a picture of Stormie Omaritian, she's a Christian writer. Don't you just love her name? I just don't know what to do with it anymore now that I finally got it long and I seen this picture of Stormie and thought, this is really a cute cut. I am the world's most inept person when it comes to fixing my hair. No I really am, I can never fix it the way they do at the salon or even come close to having it look like when they do it. It always looks like a frizzy mess, so we'll see what my girl says when I go today. I like her alot, she's my hubby's first cousin and I've been going to her for years and she's very honest in telling me what will look good or not. I don't know what I'll do if she ever stops cutting hair. So we'll see if I chicken out or not. LOL I know it's just hair but hey it's something I have to fix and deal with everyday.


And here's a picture of my new stockings I bought from Target this week. I had the same stockings for years and years and for some reason I really like these guys. Even my hubby and son noticed the new stockings on the mantel and they never notice anything when it comes to decorating. The stockings have little crystals with my hubby and my initials on them and our last name initial and by a weird coincidence these are also the initials of all of our kids. I swear we didn't plan it that way when we named them. Anyway, this is the extent of my decorating so far, except for the cute things I bought from Julie at Nunnies Attic, which by the way Julie, my granddaughter loves looking at them. But hopefully we'll get our tree up this weekend, it's sitting out in the front yard with frost all over it as I write. Also another little bloggy business, head on over to Debra's site at The Bunnies Bungalow for a chance to win a great giveaway she's giving in honor of her 100th post. We are going Christmas shopping this weekend and hopefully get it all done. Have a great weekend!

I always wondered if Stormie's name affected her personality...

I'm having WAY too much fun with the little Christmas tree cursor!

Your new stockings are so pretty! At first, I thought the M J C were for Melissa, Jimmy, and Christina... but then I thought, no way would she leave Maddie out! :)

I love the stockings...still decorating the tree here, but stockings are up. I live in hope that Santa believes me when I say I've been a VERY GOOD GIRL! Velvet, now why didn't I think of velvet stockings?

I like to hang out at Barnes and Noble, too. They stay open late, I can have coffee, and I love to get lost in how-to books, etc. I relate!

I love your decorations!

Hugs, KJ

My Hubby is off tomorrow night and guess what, we will be doing our regular thing...grabbing a bite to eat and then a coffee and browsing at Barnes & Noble. We find it very relaxing and feel off if we don't get to do it at least once a week...lol!

Please post a picture with your new do!

Love your little Christmas tree cursor ;)

Hope you'll post a photo when you do get your haircut. I'm right there with you - always looking for photos to take to the salon. And half the time they nicely tell me there's no way on God's Green Earth my hair can look like that. But its good to have a goal!
