First Snow

This is even worse than Lewiston!  I looked back in my blog - our first snow there was Nov 18th.  Towanda got enough snow to cover the grass, we saw cars covered in snow last night when we went out.  It snowed at the house, but didn't stick.  We are covered in frost this morning though.  They have accumulated snow at the jobsite too.  Blah.  
Went to the library last night and got a bunch of books.  Also got Taco Bell - yay!  :-)  Totally did not get what I ordered, but it was good anyway.  
Hope everyone is having a good Friday!

New "nice" clothes

I cannot believe I bought not 1, but 2 dresses!! This one is a sweater dress, will be so cute w/ black tights. Short sleeves.

These are 2 sweater/tank sets I purchased. The sweaters are all ruffly on the edge - so cute!

A new wrap dress - short sleeves and slick material so it bounces and drapes nicely.
I'm not going shoe shopping etc until my leg heals up. The right foot is still thick with swelling around it and my ankle. Sigh. Of course DH was not at all impressed with the dresses. I miss my girls who will tell me I'm cute in them instead of "what is THAT!?!" Men! :-)

More vacation pics

This is my early Christmas gift from Kt. It's a limited edition makeup kit. Eyeshadows and lip balm. SO COOL! We loved the muppets - watched them with dad a lot - he loved the 2 old men in the balcony. All the shades are named things related to the muppets. They only made 1000 of these so I am tickled to have one!!

These are the mugs I got on vacation to add to my collection :-)

And my HP shirt - yay!

This gull was MAD MAD MAD that the others were encroaching on his spot. He kept putting his head down, fluffing his feathers and running squawking at the other gulls till they flew off.

Me enjoying the hot tub

The beautiful resort we stayed at

Isn't she pretty!! This was at our seafood dinner, she is anticipating her yummy snow crab dinner.

Don't you just love my floppy hat? Ha. Me with a frozen margarita by the pool. Can't beat it!

Vacation Photos

This is the sunrise over the ocean the first morning we were there. It was beautiful!! Kt slept till 11:30, she was exhausted!!

Beautiful beach, cloudy weather for the first few days.

Isn't she cute in her pink floppy hat!! Just snoozing away on the beach, there is nothing better!

This stupid woman was teasing the seagulls, pretending to feed them things; then jerking it away. Needless to say, this resulted in quite a flock of gulls hanging out by her. Dingbat.

I am exhausted!! Please tell me "good job!"

I started with a dirty kitchen. Do note, everything on the counter and in the drainer is clean. I was waiting for DH to put them away. And waiting.........and waiting........and waiting. I finally got sick of it today and decided between barstools, kick stools and crutches, I WOULD manage to get it all done.

I mopped, cleaned the counters (with my new counter spray mom - it smells SO good!) I did all the dishes, put them all away and organized the towel/cookbook rack. I filled the fridge w/ water bottles and root beer. Put away the collection of cereal, chips etc that collected on the counters. Cleaned the stove off. I also vacuumed again (heaven help me) and cleaned the cat room. I even dusted!!
