My Christmas List

This is my top 10 list, in no particular order. How in the world could I pick anyway?!
1. A Robert Pattinson wall calendar. Hey, everyone has that one little quirk.
2. An iphone. I'm still in the Blackberry world, but maybe sometime next year I'll cross over.

3. Cute Earrings. These are from Anthropolgie. $28
4. Joshua Bell's new CD. Love love love his music (and not his CD cover). Get it here.
5. An Espresso machine. This one is on sale at Starbucks if you happen to want one too!

6. Brown leather boots. I'm a big fan of these from NineWest because they only have a 1 1/4 inch heel, perfect for work.

7. Adorable BKE Jeans. The perfect combination of medium dark color with a slight bootcut stretch. My fave.

8. Cute bootie slippers like these! From Target.

9. A really awesome white watch. This one is a Michael Kors from Macy's.
10. A cute quilt like this one from Anthropolgie.

We all want things for Christmas, and some of the things on my Christmas list this year make me laugh. Funny thing is, I feel terrible even posting a Christmas list at all (I have never sent one to my parents in my life) because I feel that Christmas isn't about presents at all. All of these things are so unnecessary, but all of them fun regardless. What do you want most for Christmas? I'd love to hear!

Red Cups

Every year, Starbucks brings out these fantastic little red cups that literally pass our holiday cheer. They help us enjoy our seasonal Gingerbread latte or Peppermint Mocha with a little extra punch.

However, say hello to the new Starbucks beverage--the Caramel Brulee Latte! I haven't tried it yet, but you'll have to let me know how it tickles your tastebuds. I seriously doubt a title like that has room to disappoint.

And how about this new Candle Winter from Bath and Body Works? It's absolutely amazing. If you need a fresh new winter scent and are pretty burnt out on cinnamon or something spice, try this out. No regrets here!

Missing Andrew Day

Today is official Missing Andrew Day. He is in Europe. I am in the United States. Why oh why do countries apart feel like worlds apart? I don't know how to live without a brother. All pictures shown here are Andrew's. Love you bro!

T minus 7 days. Well, it's hardly a secret how cute Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are together. But seriously, this Vanity Fair pic is legit. One week until New Moon and I am already having trouble sleeping. Is anyone else going to need to have some sedatives to calm down before the showing? I feel like I've reverted back to age 7, and I'm kind of okay about it. I've got to go--there's a countdown to resume.

Butch Walker=Fave

Way to go Butch Walker. You remade an awesome song...better? Watch this video around 2:40ish if you want instant gratification. The first couple of minutes show the making of the song, which is also, quite cool. Taylor. Butch. Thanks. AWESOME VIDEO

Sometimes, all I need is a bowl of soup and a hug. Today was one of those days. I am so appreciative of my loving friends, who let me waltz up to the dinner table and join them for a round of laughs and genuine felicity. There's nothing like comforts of home. A real home. And by real I mean people who love each another in the true raw light. It's vitalizing.

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Romans 12:12

Drink up the love

Best reasons to drink coffee...

1. It tastes good--and if it doesn't taste good to you now, it will eventually.
2. It's free of calories. What more could you ask for?!
3. It keeps you awake (this comes in handy with any american lifestyle).
4. It keeps you warm in the cold winter months. (Always best with a book)
5. It's claims all the best cups.
6. It's fabulously priced. You can get a whole pound of beans for the same price as a pack of Coke.
7. The smell makes you happy, even if you hate the stuff. Most can agree on that simple truth.
9. I don't need 9 reasons because the first 8 were awesome.

Mendy is...

a smart, beautiful, caring, loving, giving, sweet, friendly, funny, Godly, athletic,
creative, neat, and lovely woman.

I am so proud of all of Mendy's accomplishments (her newest is Homecoming Queen!) and am so glad that we are family. I find her personality refreshing and honest and her love for the simple things much like mine. She always has time to give helping others and you'll always find her with a sweet smile. Thanks for being a shining light in a dark world and making it a better place. I love you sister.

Forever and Always,
