I decided that with over 900 pins, I ought to be getting more accomplished from the ideas on my pinterest boards than I have so far. So last week, when it was rainy and cold for the better part of the time, I modified something I had seen among my oh so fun pin-ups. When I first saw this idea, I immediately imagined it tickling my taste buds with a cream cheese base instead of butter, so that is what I used.

It's been really cold this week. Funny how the sunshine brings with it a stark chill. The up side of this?
Boots! I love my boots. I have around 5 pair and think I need more. But see these cozy ones here?
...they were marked at a yard sale for $10...which I snagged up ASAP. It gets better though... when I went to pay for them, the lady insisted I only pay 3 DOLLARS. Really?
Are you kidding?! Why? Fully willing to pay the $10, I was practically talking her into making me pay the full $10. These boots didn't appear to even be worn. Seriously.
Love a good bargain!

I was just blog hoppin' today when I stumbled across a new site that has me wrapped. This little site has some lovely things. Since they are not easy to pin, I'm posting them from Blessings Unlimited, and ooh-la-la-hold me down!! I'm SO wanting a few items. I know, we just had Christma, so I'm posting my wish list early. and dreaming. One thing at a time, right? and no, I'm not becoming a consultant to sell, not even hosting...there are certain things I just don't do anymore. Here are the items that I'm pining for:

cami-motherhood (i know, don't say it. I'm not!)
extra 5 lbs-thanksgiving through Christmas
If you've never joined one of these parties, I encourage you to give it a shot. I don't do it because I love to take pictures of myself, much less post them for everyone to see. However, I do it for a few reasons:
1. to see how I can change what I'm wearing
2. how i can revise the old to make them new
3. what i can add and look for when shopping next time
4. realize things like the entryway needing to be swept daily
and last but not least
5. confirms why one of my new year's resolution is a valid must...

But the food and games are usually the focus anyway. We always enjoy pizza and chips, Sprite fruitpunch,
a seven layer dip, and anything guests want to bring to share...
This year our family and guests started a New Year Capsule tradition.
and the significance of the ornament on the other.
