Snow Day

What better day to go sledding with your family than Christmas?

The Gladstan Golf Course by my parent's home offers a slew of perfectly steep hills.

Let us thank Nick's mom for lending Mallory those amazing 80's throwback snow bibs, matching coat included.

Haley Marie took a time out and chilled with Jack, who became a little bit of a wuss after just a couple runs. Tisk, tisk.

What If... were an inmate on death row, what would your last meal be?

I had this conversation with a friend at lunch today while at Bajio enjoying a kids quesidilla. Odd conversation, right? Well, Kristen dared to claim that Bajio's kids quesidilla with ranch, Mexican rice and black beans would be her last meal. WHOA, dream big.

If I were a dirty, rotten prisoner on death row, I think I'd request a five course meal beginning with Cheesecake Factory's Roasted Artichoke as my appetizer. My next course would be my Mom's Chicken Tamale Pie. At this point, I'd need a long Diet Coke break, assuming the prison guards are kind enough to allow it.

Ahhh, once I've quenched my thirst, I'd move onto a Cafe Rio Pork Salad, sans rice and beans. Wow, at this point I'll probably burst, so maybe the five course meal was a little too adventurous. Unless I think of another dish I MUST have, I'll move onto dessert.

For the last and final food I will ever taste (this is getting pretty morose) I would ask for Fried Ice Cream from Los Hermanos. Maybe two of them. With a cherry on top.

My last meal says a lot about how much I eat out...SAD. I need to change that. Whitney, a little help?

What would your last meal be?

Tadd was practically as giddy as a school boy with anticipation. Neph-Jack loves "gloffing" so we only thought it fitting to give him his own set of golf clubs for Christmas!

All we wanted to see was that look of glee of his face, and we got exactly what we wanted.

Well, I've become a blacker (blog-slacker), so until I have something decent to write about, snack on this.

Coming Clean

          Things I Just Don't Care About:

          My regrowth. I spend enough time caring for other's regrowth, I don't have time to worry about my own.

          Matching my clothes

          Watching sports (looks like Lindey and I have a lot in common!), especially football.

          A spic and span clean house

          Using my favorite swear words

          Increasing my cup size. I'd actually be perfectly happy to see my cup size decrease.

          The need to create. I don't care to be crafty. Why craft when I can pay someone who will?

          Eating organically. Gag.

          Getting my teeth checked regularly

          Pinching pennies, although I should

          Brand new mass-produced furniture. I like the old stuff found in thrift stores and friend's storage units.

          My Diet Coke addiction

          A clean car

          Getting any presents for Christmas

          Showering everyday (wow, do I care if anything is clean?)

          Cooking. I just don't.

          Here is what my dear ol' husband does not care about:

          Reading other people's blogs

          Drinking Diet Coke

          Professional athletes that do stupid things and expect the human race to feel bad for them.

          Being rich one day

          Getting any presents for Christmas (with the both of us not caring, makes Christmas easy-peasy!)

          Talking golf off the course (Tadd is napping so I added this one in)

          So, friendlings...what do you not care about? Do tell, just as others around the blog world have, such as my sissy.

          Hats Off to Ya

          My do-gooder Mom always tries to conduct a humanitarian project every Thanksgiving, and this year was HATS.

          The goal was 15 hats, which was well exceeded. Good work family! Non-do-gooder me didn't actually help. I claim incoordination.

          Even my jolly lil' husband helped out!

          Papa's Train

          Tadd's Dad "Papa" has the greatest wooden train that the little kids love to play in!

          I'm kind of sad I don't fit in it. And I don't, trust me.

          The Muffin Man

          Thanksgiving activity at the Coxes! Shaley and I made an award winning gingerbread house, and your'e all jealous.

          Sorry you were sick on Thanksgiving, Tadd.
          Sorry you couldn't make a gingerbread house with me.
          I would've made two little love-gingerbread-people and placed them lovingly in our edible home.

          Deck the Halls

          That title would actually be more fitting for my sis and her mate. Alas, I have no clever quips using my own name.
          Tadd and I brought a bit of Christmas spirit into our home this weekend, I feel so jolly!

          As for the clock...Father Time?

          The Most Important

          Today is Thanksgiving, and since I've thoroughly slacked on posting three things I'm grateful for each day, I wanted to list today the three most important things in my life that I am most thankful for.

          1. The Gospel. Where would I be without it? It's so comforting to know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and cares for me. He wants to see me happy, and has created a plan for me to be eternally happy. I'm so thankful for the gift of prayer. I feel so blessed to have the ability to speak with Him anytime I please, and furthermore, knowing that He will answer me in due time is such an immense blessing. I'm so grateful for Jesus Christ, and what He sacrificed to allow me eternal happiness. The atonement is such an amazing gift!

          2. My Family. I have not one, but two wonderful families. I don't even know where to start with this one! Bottom line: I have a rockin' family, and I am so blessed to have awesome in-laws! I truly enjoy the time I get to spend with both families, and I lucked out even more to have them both nearby! I love each and every member of my family for too many reasons to list!

          3. My Husband. There is so much I could say about Tadd, but I'll start to get all mushy and weepy, so it's best to keep this short. I love Tadd with all my heart, and feel so lucky to be loved unconditionally by him. I am his sweetheart, and he is mine. Tadd is so kind, and soft spoken. He has never raised his voice at me, and although may not be the most sentimental or thoughtful person (bless his heart), I always know my best interest is in his mind, and all he's trying to do is love me more and more. Tadd is so patient, which can't be said about myself, and is a constant example to me of patience, giving and love. I'm so grateful I'm stuck with this man!

          Boys vs. Girls

          I am about to end the suspense from THIS post.

          Our team dazzled the distributors with a good old fashioned DANCE OFF! Let me introduce you to the dudes:

          (Excuse me for not narrating these photos, PS there are millions, but you'll find they speak for themselves)

          I apologize for those of you that do not think these pictures are hilarious...because they are. White boys shakin' their thang and calling to the crowd "What yo momma said!"

          Now let me introduce you to the ladies of the Sales Team...
          Now you must understand the office rivalry we've created since our last regional meeting in January...we had to settle it ONCE AND FOR ALL!
          Anticipating the crowd's choice after a requested encore...
          and the GIRL'S walk away triumphant! Hands down!
          Ahhh...victory is a sweet, sweet thing.
