All Things Christmas & A road trip

Today I am headed off to one of my favorite places
Pigeon Forge, TN! Just a small 2 day road trip.
Where I will shop at one of my favorite stores: A Christmas place

Oh let the ornament shopping continue!!

In Christmas news, got the live tree today. Does anyone else do a live tree? I love the smell, as soon as you walk in your house you can smell the christmas cheer! Now, I just have to finish decorating it (once I get back from TN) and get the outside house decorations up. 

I'm sending out Christmas cards this year and I'm including some of my amazing blog friends. If you'd like to get one just shoot me an e-mail over at They're really cute! You won't be disappointed!

Also...I have a small dilemma...I don't know what to get a co-worker for Christmas. He's also in his mid twenties and besides being co-workers we're pretty good friends. His partner got him luggage for his recent birthday (he was pretty disappointed). I literally have NO CLUE what to get him. He has everything. Any suggestions? I was thinking maybe a cologne but those are pretty personal and he could end up not liking it. 

Alright lovelies! I'll be back Wednesday!

A Real & Honest Post

Do you hear that? Shh...don't you hear it? That's the sound of my angels singing. Finally the dark clouds that have been looping for the last 2 weeks are starting to drift away and the sun is beginning to shine (and no I'm not talking about the real weather). 
Recently, the times have been rough but life is just too short to go through it with everything not being sunshine and rainbows. With that being said, I'm making a few changes. 
First up....the job. Now, I'm very thankful in these trying times that I have a job at all. There's tons of people out there who would like to have any job. I like my job, I like most of the people, and I like the fact that it's for the government. However, I've started the hunt for a new one. I don't like being under appreciated, under paid and the erratic schedule. So I want to change it.
Second...the location. I don't know if I've ever told the whole story on here but I moved back to my hometown, in my home state awhile ago. For awhile it was great seeing old friends, being around family and just being back in all the old, familiar places. Now...not so much. It's a hassle because people that are super awesome, good jobs and people who hold my heart are not in my home town. Hello...apartmentfinder (dot)com. We're going to become new best friends. 
Third...the car payment. I love my car. I have zero regrets about buying it BUT having a car payment is not fun. So I've decided to use a portion of every paycheck to make a 2nd payment each month. It's time to get that sucker paid in full. I hate being in debt. It's time to remedy it.
Fourth...the love life. There is always going to be ups and downs. You have to decide to either ride them out or get off the ride. I'm not getting off the ride anytime soon so you have to make the best of every situation and use it for future situations. Smile through the good and smile even harder through the bad because I've learned one day the sun will come out again.
Finally...the friends. This year I ended a friendship that had lasted over a decade. We had been best friends, more like sisters for as long as I could remember. Over the past year, I noticed that I was the one investing more time, making all the plans, and reaching out. Yet when I took a deeper look I started finding, excuses, lies and saw a whole new person staring back at me. I didn't like what I saw. As hard as it is to not have this person in my life, I cherished the other good friends in my life and have been strengthening those bonds. Now I'm more determined than ever to be the bestest friend that I can be to all of them. 

So buckle up readers, cause the road has forked and we're going down a new journey.

No Thank You Black Friday

Good morning readers!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Turkey day yesterday! I know I enjoyed stuffing myself with food almost all day. It was quite enjoyable! Plus....hello! The Home Alone marathon on television was very entertaining. 

This year I decided to sit out Black Friday shopping. The "deals" just weren't great enough for me to miss out on good coma induced sleeping. Did it rain/snow anywhere else last night? Because it sure did here. Hello first snow of the winter! Welcome! I love snow!

Here: Enjoy the goodness of the gumdrop...

Happy Thanksgiving & Theater Thursday

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you have a great day with family, friends and of course eating turkey! 
This week's Theater Thursday has a special place in my heart. We're looking at Home Alone & Home Alone 2

Since Home Alone first came out in 1990, my family has made watching it on Thanksgiving a staple event. Once we're done eating and playing board games we all gather around to watch Home Alone. I think it will always continue in our family and one day (God willing), I will be able to share this tradition with a spouse and kids. 
If you haven't seen it you really should watch it. Just incase you haven't... Kevin McCallister is accidently left at home while the rest of his family is headed to France for their Christmas vacation. Once his parents realize he is missing they begin the long journey to get home facing no flights, no rental cars and above all not knowing if their son is ok. 
Kevin on the other hand is having a blast being home alone...until 2 robbers plan on breaking into his house, along with the rest of the empty neighborhood. When Kevin learns of this plot he vows to protect his families' home and ends up surprising the would be criminals. 
 Alone 2 which came out in 1992 begins one year later since we last seen the McCallister family. This time though, the entire family is headed to Florida OR so they think! Running late, the family must make a mad dash to the terminal. Knowing that Kevin was at the airport, the family figured they would all make it on the plane. Wrong! Kevin finds himself in NYC while the family arrives in Miami, FL. While in NYC Kevin finds himself faced with challenges he never thought could happen. 
The 2nd movie in my opinion isn't as good as the first but it's still really cute to watch. I recommend both to get you in the holiday spirit! Good luck to all those going shopping tomorrow on Black Friday!

The Clock Keeps ticking

Good day to all my readers, 
Wow, I can't believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Where has this year gone?!? Seriously, Why is it when you're miserable, sad and want time to go faster it seems to draaaag on and on but when you're having a good time it flies by so fast?
Before I talk about the things I am thankful for this year, I'd like to say thank you for all the wonderful, supportive comments I received yesterday when talking about cosmetic surgery. First of all, many of you e-mailed me wanting to know what procedure I'm thinking about doing. Well...I actually want two things done. This one, I am 100% sure I will be getting in the very near future: Reslin injections...kinda like botox but apparently better for your skin. Apparently all those years of tanning, majorette smiling and general happiness will put creases in your face. Who would have thought? The second thing that I'm still debating so I'll talk about it when I've made up my decision. 
So...Thanksgiving is tomorrow! This year I am thankful for supportive friends and family, my job, having a roof over my head and most of all feeling loved. I hope all of you have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!

A cosmetic can of worms

Image found here
Today, I might be opening a very large can of worms but I hope not. 
Recently, I've been giving a lot of thought to having cosmetic surgery. Over the years I've toyed with the idea but recently in the last couple of months I've started to seriously consider it. Now, before everyone starts to get their panties in a bunch hear me out. 
First of all, I would be doing it for me. Not for anyone else. It would be my choice and my decision. Second of all, what I'm considering having done is not something over the top. If you saw me out on the street afterwards you wouldn't be like, "OMG why on earth did she do that?" It's just a small, tiny, teeny procedure. I promise. 

My thoughts on cosmetic procedures is this, if you hadn't already figured it out: If it's something that's going to make you happy, make you feel better about being yourself, not over the top or completely crazy then do it. Life is too short to be unhappy or miserable. And don't get me wrong, I'm fine with the way I am, I just think it would be a nice improvement... if I decide to do it. 

So before the first stone is thrown let's all remember this phrase: Glass house. So what do you think? Have you had any cosmetic surgery?

What not to say on a date

The last few years I've been blessed to go on some really great dates. However, that wasn't always the case. Back in my days of dating, post high school I went on some horrendous dates. I mean really bad dates! Here's an example of one:
My 3rd year of college, I had met this really nice guy in one of my classes. We ended up being in multiple classes together throughout the year and actually became friends. The school year ended and over the summer we continued to stay in contact. When my 4th year of college started, we were still talking non stop. We decided to actually go out on a date. It was actually really nice. 
I had moved into a new place with some fellow sorority sisters and decided to invite him over to watch a movie and hang out. By this point we had gone on a few dates and it felt like we were "dating". 
He came over to the apartment and we ended up watching the movie 8 mile. Haha, yes I know, very bad movie choice. During the whole movie I could tell he was trying to make little moves but didn't really know if he should. At the end of the movie we ended up talking. During our conversation the frustration of not knowing what we were came out: "I need to know what we're doing because I have other options!"

Um...boys and girls. Never, ever say that to someone. That's a date killer and a relationship ender. Wouldn't you agree?

The Gary Allan Concert

Friday night I had the pleasure of seeing Gary Allan. Not only did I get the pleasure of going to his concert, I was blessed with front row, floor seats. 
Myself & my friend Cheryl
One of the 2 opening acts Eli Stone Band
The 2nd opening act Jack Ingram
Gary Allan!!!!
He was rocking some awesome jeans!
He talked about this being his new guitar but it was made in the 1940's
Gary's dog got out and came up on the back of the stage
He was awesome and signed our ticket after he was done
The concert was amazing. Gary Allan is such a great performing. I had such a hard time even choosing pictures to show. I took at least 100. Saw New Moon today, it was good. I won't bombard you with the details of new moon lol. 

Friday, November 20, 2009

SO excited!

Tonight I have front row, floor seats to see...

Gary Allan!!!! I can't wait! A really good friend of mine is coming into town to hang out and go to the concert with me. She's great and I haven't seen her since almost this time last year! 

I'm hoping that Gary Allan will take away the awfulness of this past week. Come on Gary, you can do it!

Theater Thursday

Theater Thursday is here! This week for our Christmas edition we'll be taking a look at The Santa Clause starring Tim Allen. 
In 1994 we were given The Santa Clause. Since then it has become a Christmas classic. Scott Calvin (Allen) goes from being a corporate business man to Santa Clause over night. On Christmas Eve, Scott inadvertently kills Santa. By putting on the Santa jacket he unknowingly accepts the responsibility of becoming the next Santa Clause. Scott and his son Charlie get through the night, waking up thinking it was a dream. 

As the year goes on, Scott begins to notice things changing, including his body. Charlie never forgets Christmas Eve and whole heartily believes his father is Santa. Scott's ex wife believes that he's become a bad influence on Charlie. She fights to take away his visitation rights. 

As Scott becomes Santa he notices friends disappear, family slips away and his normal, everyday life is drifting away. You'll have to watch the rest to know the story!  If you haven't seen this, add it to your holiday list. It's funny and touching!

Meredith Grey...

Meredith Grey is a quote mecca. This is another reason why I love Grey's....
Also, Big thank you to everyone who is thinking/praying for me. Please continue to do so because things are not much better.

"You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true."

"At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines...that are way too dangerous to cross."

"Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can't outrun it and life always makes more."

"Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim. The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired, we are scared, denying it doesn't change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world. Head on, guns blazing. De Nile. It's not just a river in Egypt, it's a freakin' ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it?"

"A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? What if you're making a mistake you can't undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we hadn't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying."

Thoughts & Prayers

Hello everyone. It is a sad, sad day around here at Crazy Shenanigans. I should currently still be away from home and on my trip. However, yesterday and I had to come back home. I can't and won't go into the reasons but I'm doing something I normally don't do. 
I'm asking you to please keep me in your thoughts and if you pray, please pray for me. 

Thank you so much. I would really appreciate it.

Away From Home: Day 2

*Pre-Scheduled Post*
Seeing as how I'm currently away from home on a trip, I think this time is as good as any to cover these things. I bring you:

My favorite holiday commercial:

I keep traveling....

*Pre-Scheduled Post*
Hopefully and God willing by the time you are reading this, I have made it to my final destination. Right now, I am more than likely over the moon excited! The last time I made this trip I was a bundle of nerves. This time I just can't wipe the smile off of my face. I am so excited to see wonderful friends and just get to "hang-out." We have a ton of activities planned out. I can't wait!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!

Spewing Venom

Spewing venom does not grow flowers. 
Before I head out on my trip tomorrow, I wanted to talk about this...
Does anyone remember this night?
The above photo was taken the night of the Miss USA pageant. I normally don't watch them but for some reason I managed to catch it. I saw the above events unfold. Did you see it?
That's Miss California, Carrie Prejean. She received her judges question from Perez Hilton (who btw I wouldn't call him an expert on judging beauty), the question was "Do you think America should legalize gay marriage?" No matter what your opinion may be (I don't want to know) she answered what she personally thought. That was her right and opinion... She didn't win. 

Que the next day, major backlash. Things came out about her mother possibly being in a same sex relationship, a few months later unclothed photos appeared of her. Then recently a sex tape comes out, etc etc She's no longer affiliated with the Miss USA program. Now somewhere in this time she wrote a book. Yes, you read that right. She wrote a book. 

Earlier this week she was on The View. Seeing as how I now watch it most mornings before work I saw the episode. From the moment this girl came out on stage she was nothing but hostile. The women were trying to be nice and she would bounce back with major venom spewing out of her mouth. Even Whoppi commented on it a day later!  Then last night this very awkward incident happened....

Did you see it? It was VERY bizarre. She's on Larry King Live, she basically just wants to plug her "book". He wants to ask her questions. She basically refuses to answer questions and take viewer calls. Starts calling LK's behavior inappropriate, takes off the mic and just sits there. She literally just. sat. there. Um...awkward. 

I'm really hoping her 15 mins of fame are over very, very soon.

Theater Thursday

Theater Thursday is here! As we get closer and closer the actual week of Christmas, I'm pulling out the really good holiday movies! With this week's pick, we get one step closer! This theater thursday we're looking at Miracle on 34th Street
Over the years there's been a few remakes made but I believe the best is the original. It was made in 1947 starring Maureen O'Hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood and Edmund Gween. 
It all starts when a Macy's Santa Clause claims to be the real Kris Kringle and becomes institutionalized. A young lawyer Fred steps up and takes the case, causing some stir in his love life with Doris (O'Hara) a fellow Macy's employee.

This holiday season her daughter Susan is having issues with believing in Santa. Doris being an adult doesn't believe in Santa and thinks that even though Kris is a nice old man that he isn't the real Santa. Fred wants to believe in Kris, causing another problem between Doris and Fred.  Fred decides to get Kris' case taken to a jury and has an uphill battle to win. Bringing out the age old question, "Do you believe in Santa Clause?" 
This is such a classic, holiday movie. If you've never seen the original it's a MUST add!

200th Post!

It's my 200th post! That's exciting! 

Yesterday I got a ton of questions on where I purchased my shoes and top. The shoes I found at Target and the top I found at Charlotte Russe. Each item was under $30.00, which was great!

Tomorrow and Friday, I will be posting as normal but Saturday-Wednesday are going to be pre-scheduled post. I'll be out of town and I'm not 100% sure that I'll have internet access or time to post from the road. Make sure you check back because I've got a good topic theme I'm debating on writing about!

Happy Veterans Day! Don't forget Applebees is feeding veterans for FREE today!

Shopping & Excitement

The other day I talked about going shopping. I'm glad to say that I found everything I was looking for and just in time for my upcoming trip! 
My new top...
My new shoes...
And I got some really cute jeans but sadly I can't find a picture of them on the internet. 

Currently, I'm in full countdown mode. This week cannot go by fast enough! I have SO many great things coming up. Friday, one of my very best friends is coming into town. We're gonna have dinner together because sadly I'll be leaving town afterwards and won't get to see her for the rest of her trip. Then I'll be going out of town to see other fabulous people and then when I come back mid week, it's the Gary Allan concert! Where I have fabulous front row, floor seats. Oh yes! A really good friend of mine is coming into town for the concert so it's going to be twice the fun, getting to see her and being on the front row!

Also..if you haven't heard this little movie is coming out next week...

Give Away Winner & Kim Z.

The winner of my blog anniversary giveaway was chosen by, so without further ado Chi Chi,  send me your e-mail and the snowmen will be in the mail! Congrats! 
Don't be sad if you didn't win. I think I'll be doing another holiday theme giveaway before Christmas gets here. 
So, let's talk about a woman named Kim Zolciak.
Don't know who this woman is? Let me tell you who she is...she's one of the featured housewives on Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta. Since the Atlanta version of the show aired, Kim has received a lot of flack for various things. Examples: The fact that she's not married, Is sleeping with a married man(who's separated from his wife), constantly wears a wig, drinks to much wine and won't quit smoking (I really wish you would Kim). 

Now, if you've seen the show then you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't there's a few things you may not know about her: She has two daughters. She's created her own wig line. Put out a hit song called, Tardy For the Party and is now traveling doing club appearances for singing. Why am I talking about her? Because through it all she's never listened to one negative thing said about her. She lets it roll off her back. I think it's amazing! The fact that she's getting her name out there and using it to promote her business ventures! I mean hello free PR! People laugh at her but plain and simple she's raking in the cash and having a good time. Do you watch the show? What do you think?

I Fly Above

I’m so comfortable in the skin I’m in, I’m secure about who I am, so you go ahead and talk all you wanna, I built up a shell and it’s hard and it’s armored.

I’m a shooting star but my feet still on the ground and when you flying high people wanna shoot you down 

I’m like a jet airplane, I’m way too high to hear you throwing salt on my name. I know I’m not the only one if people love to hate you go and throw your hands up go ahead and spread your wings cuz you gotta fly above.

Planting A Seed

Today is the LAST day to enter my giveaway, if you haven't done so already do it here
Ok...I have so much I want to say right now, that I can't even make coherent sentences. I'm going to really try so please bare with me. 
See this little, teeny, tiny seed? 

Well it can grow into

What do those seeds represent? Doubt. When it comes to me trusting people, once a seed of doubt is planted it can't be erased. The doubt will always be there and the trust will never be as strong as it once was, therefore the one seed sprouts little friends. Before I know it little seeds of doubt have been planted in every direction and all trust is lost. 
Right now all I can see is seeds. 

Can you trust someone once you've been given reason not to?

Theater Thursday

Theater Thursday Christmas Edition is BACK! We took a 1 week hiatus last week for Halloween. Now we're back in Christmas business! This week we'll be taking a look at the movie Love Actually

Love Actually takes place in London, England (one of my favorite places btw) during the holiday season. The movie follows the story lines of 7 different romance stories. The theme: "love is all around". There's a politician, a writer, an entertainer, a hopeless romantic, a married couple, grieving father & an overworked single. 

The movie also has some very big name stars in it: Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley & Emma Thompson just to name a few. 

If you're a hopeless romantic like me, then you'll definitely love watching this movie. It gives off a great holiday feel. Watch it!

New things

I'm pretty excited. Today I'm having my custom made dvd shelf delivered. Yes, that's right I said custom made dvd shelf. If you haven't heard, I'm a big fan of movies (Theater Thursdays) and buying dvds. I never rent...I buy. I don't do Netflix because my mail always gets sent to the wrong addresses, so I just end up buying them. After years of this, I have about 800+ dvds. And yes I know that's a lot. About 2 months ago I decided I needed a better shelf to hold them all so I called up a fabulous carpenter/woodmaker and told him what I wanted. Well, today he will be bringing it over. The only sad part? Writing him a check that includes one too many zero's. 

In other news, I watched the new show V last night. Um...fabulous! I've now added it to my weekly watch list. If you missed it go to or hulu and catch up. It was goooood. 

Apart from the new shelf being delivered I'm tackling some Christmas shopping. I have a pretty large family when it comes to the uncle department. In recent years they've all acquired wives which means another gift. So I'm on a mission to get all of those gifts bought today. And I may or may not be looking to score some fabulous skinny jeans and black heels for myself along the way....

Flying By

I don't know if it's just me but I really feel like time is flying! There's not enough time in the day to get everything done. The days feel shorter with the time change and the darkness coming earlier. I know this post is gonna seem so scattered but that's how my brain is right now! I've been super busy. Here's just a few things I've been doing... I'm knitting like no tomorrow for the Etsy shop I'm trying to start. I've bought my Christmas exchange ornaments for my exchange partner. AND the thing running across my brain the most...a few short days till I see the boo!!!

Speaking of time running out, have you entered my giveaway which ends on Friday? If not, go here!

Tonight is the new show V, I'm gonna give it a try. Anyone else?

Etsy Mania & November excitement

I have become obsessed with Etsy. I love that site. You can find anything and everything on there. I'm loving some of the jewelry that I've found on there, among other things. Do you Etsy? If so what do you look for on there?
I'm thinking about opening up an Etsy store. I'm a pretty good knitter so I've been working on some knitwear. Once I get a few pieces done maybe I'll add them to the site. 
So November is here and I'm super excited! Apart from December, the month of November is one of my favorites! With it comes some of my favorite things! Like...
Thanksgiving Turkey
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and....

Black Friday Shopping! 

What activities are you looking forward to this month?

Sunday, November 1, 2009


Hello! I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween last night! 
I know that I got to hang out with some very awesome people. Pictured below! 

My costume! A 60/70's gal!

I enjoyed Halloween but move over October, because I'm so glad it's November! I can't believe there's only 2 months left in this year?!? Where has the time gone? Wow. I'm under the 2 week mark for seeing the boo! So excited! 

Alright guys and gals it's time for me to catch up on reading blogs. If you haven't noticed the lack of commenting, it's because I'm 2 days behind!
