Missing white lace tank with grey shawl neck pull over sweater.

It's been raining pretty much non-stop for days. I love the cold weather, just not the horrible rain. Squishy and I have been wanting to hit up Disneyland prior to x-mas to see the x-mas decorations there but this rain has ruined all our plans. No we cross our fingers that It stops raining after the New Year so we can go then before school re-starts on the 10th.

I've been shopping here and there around town but most of my shopping has been done online lately. I've added several pairs of shoes to my shoe room (a lot of them actually) and again I am full to the brim and will have to get rid of at least 30 pairs to make room for all my newer ones. I hate doing that as the last time I did it it was really hard as I wanted to keep them all. So either I will have to get creative in my storing or many pairs will have to go. Bummer.

The Mexican stand-off

So Christmas is 11 days away. Where's our tree or decorations? Nicely stored in their storage boxes. I don't want to do it by myself, and quite frankly I don't want to put everything up by myself as I had for several years. did it once (last year) and he thinks that was once too many and therefore he has told me he's not going to this year. So he wants me to do it and I want him to. So the decorations stay in storage.

UPDATE: I pulled out kid 2's california snowman and a few of our animated singing stuffed animals and a penquin pillow. Done. I guess that's the extent of our x-mas cheer this year.

I know it's time to but........

This Sunday again we went to watch the game with the "club" (feels funny saying that.hahaha). As we were leaving one of the older men from the group says to me "You never wear mommy boots." I reply with yes I do, I'm a mommy and the boots I wear every week are mine. So, mommy boots. Then chimes in with "Sexy mommy".

Monday I decided to just go ahead and order the last color of the Dany heels I don't have. I am obsessed with Dany. Not only are they almost 6 inches high (5.8") but they are unbelievably comfortable. I can wear them for hours! I think that these have beat out all my Iman's. Iman used to be my go to shoe for events that I knew I'd be doing tons of walking or long periods of standing but now I can add Dany and Curly (for more casual events).

Yesterday I was asked if I had put my tree up yet. To which I of course replied "Nope". Why is is SO hard for me to decorate for Christmas? I guess we'll see when I finally break down and put it up. Anyways, why does it always have to be me to initiate the process? Why don't the men of the house do it??

New shoes, Chuckies and delicious potato soup

I FINALLY slept in. Yup, it was well after 8am before I was awaken by a fighting cat and dog :|

Later that morning the mailman delivered the two pairs of Zola heels I was waiting for. YAY!! I love them, but they do not have leather soles like they were described on the site. Also the light gray is not that, it's taupe. Which is fine as it is still a nice color. As you recall I ordered the gray in size 7 and the black pair in 7.5 (since they were sold out in the 7). Well the 7's feel a bit tight and the 7.5's feel perfect. So either they run small or pointy shoes do as a whole. I really don't know.

In the afternoon I was talked into taking kid 2 and squishy to Chuckie Cheese's. We were there for a couple hours and the boys wanted to stay longer but there is only so long an adult can be there before they start going nuts.

By the time we got home it was nearly dinner time and I decided to make my MIL's potato soup. In this weather this soup hits the spot. It is a potato soup with diced green Anaheim chili (I cheat I buy the can of whole green chili and dice them. My MIL roasts, peels, rinses and then dices) which you saute with diced tomato and diced onion, garlic salt and chicken bouillon. Then you add cubed Monterrey cheese in your bowl and yum yum yum.

So now with a full and warm belly I am settling in to watch AMW.

It's December? Really?

My goodness, only 23 days until Christmas. These days are just flying by, it's crazy.
