My Christmas Wishlist

Time is ticking down until that
jolly ol' big fella comes down our chimney.
And a lot of family members start asking
what I'd like for Christmas.

What better way to share than to make my wishlist.
So here you have it,
my 2013 Christmas Wishlist:

The number one thing on my list this year ^!!
I've been obsessed with Cher since I can't remember when
and she recently released her Dressed to Kill tour dates.
I hopped on the site and unfortunately the tickets are way out of my
price range and now most are sold out.
I would die if I got to see her concert!!!

  Behind the Chair : I've been obsessing over all their merchandise
since I discovered the site. I love the definition of hairstylist and
the sweatshirt is just hilarious!


This is obvious and also out of our current price range. 
A golden retriever puppy. 
Since I can remember, I've always had dogs and I miss them terribly.  


 An actual adult lunchbox. 
Since Sir Dan and I are forever dieting,
I would like a lunchbox that actually fits 
all my food and drinks.

 This amazing Turbo Power blow dryer!!!
It dries hair super fast and isn't heavy.
Dream dryer!!

 Oh Michael... How I love thou
and never had thou.

 A random selection of gift cards:
target, cvs, big y, cosmo prof (hair store),
cotton on, new york and company, etc.

There you have it.
Most seem extreme,
actually they are extreme,
but it's what I really would like under our tree.

What's on your wishlist this year?

Weekend Recap: From Eh to Awesome!!!

This weekend started out like complete poopski,
and ended up being pretty freakin awesome...
to the point where I didn't want it to end.

Saturday was super craptastic-
I had school and a couple clients that kept me busy...
but my best friend was graduating which made the day bitter sweet.

We started our journey together,
so its been her and I through it all.
I'm truly gonna miss my little Lex.

To top off an already crazy and emotional day,
I had to go to work.
I was excited to make money but once I got there,
and found out I had the worst section possible-
it just slipped down hill from there.
The manager was in the worst mood possible,
my coworkers (who I love) all had issues
and were dropping things left and right.
I was looking forward to just leaving.
I made great money,
but was happy for Saturday to end so I could start my real weekend.

My Saturday.
Sir Dan and I decided to skip the gym,
which was a hard decision,
but our bed was super comfy and warm.
Plus we never get a morning to just cuddle and sleep in.
 So we did and I didn't mind.
Saturday night we talked about making Sunday a date day,
because we are both so busy we rarely see each other
except for at night before bed.
 We had so many great choices we couldn't decide.
Finally while out to breaky,
Sir Dan picked Mohegan Sun-
CTs one of two casinos.
We love Mohegan,
and to spend the day there is so much fun.
Off we went,
talking the whole 2 hour car ride,
not a care in the world.
We get to Mohegan, put our car in their free valet,
and in we went to hopefully not donate.

Sir Dan saw a TV that said:
Tonights Show- Straight No Chaser at 7pm.
We love them and saw them last year at the same time same place.
Sir Dan looked up tickets and saw that there were some still available.
We ran to the box office and purchased two tickets to see the
amazing acapella group for $30 each!
We were so stoked!
Our impromptu date day turned even more awesome.
(ps- if you've never heard them,
search their music it's amazing).

We walked around the casino,
played roulette and craps-
which we both lost on :(
but didn't care cause we were having so much fun
and because it was so beautifully decorated.
I looked at my phone and one of my best friends texted me
that she was at the casino.
We talked, found out they were seeing the show,
ended up meeting up together, had dinner and went to the show.
Another awesome coincidence!!

After the show,
we met outside and decided to try our luck
one more time at roulette, right by valet.
My luck changed and almost ended up breaking even!
A great way to end a perfect day.

today I am relaxing all day!
We had some bad weather overnight 
consisting of mainly ice which we encountered on our way home.
So I am in my footie pjs, still in bed,
watching the rain :)

How was your weekend?

Oh hello there December

I think I'm slightly behind on this post considering 
It's already December 5th but better late than never right?! 
I've seen a lot of these December goals posts go up 
And I wanted to write mine out in blog land!

Nicole's December Goals:
1.) put together everybody's Christmas gifts. 
This year because of our current financial state,
We are using wine and my awesome takent as gifts!
It works out great and it's only a little expense for us. 
Now I just have to make cute little vouchers. 

2.) lose 5-10 pounds. 
Sir Dan and I have been dieting for just about two weeks now
(We started the Monday before thanksgiving and even made it 
Through thanksgiving under calories). 
I've gotten my butt back into the gym as many days as I can
With work and school being the obstacle. 
Now it's time to get serious. 
My ultimate goal is to get my thighs not to touch. 
I mean who likes chub rub?! 
I'm sick of it. 

3.) actually use coupons while shopping. 
I went to Walgreens yesterday for deodorant 
And the woman behind the counter had two coupons for me 
Which lowered the price even more. 
And being on a budget,
I didn't realize how much coupons actually help. 

4.) do something different for New Year's Eve. 
We have resorted to staying in the past couple of years 
Just to save money and the drive.
But now I want to do something fun and exciting. 
Not sure what it is yet but I wanna go out. 

5.) organize the apartment. 
That speaks for itself. 

6.) finally do our wedding crafts. 
It's been a year and a half, 
I think it's time to get that together. 

So there ya have it. 
My December goals. 
Hopefully being out in blog land
Will help them happen. 

What are your December goals??
