Move That Bus!

is coming to the Valley! How excited am I? Very :) I LOVE this show. Mario & I are going to try to volunteer some of our time, but now that I'm back at work it might be tough. Maybe I'll bake some muffins or cookies. They're announcing the family on Jan 8, which is the day they'll start. YAY!!!!

Back at Work :'(

Yes, that is a tear my sad face is shedding. Today marks my first day back at work in 3 months. That is if you don't count cleaning house, cooking, running errands, etc. I must say, I make a pretty darn good housewife. So good infact, I need to take it up as a full time position. First I'll go on the Price is Right (since I'm a pricing pro now) and win me some money, or a new car, and then I'll gladly retire as the domestic goddess that I am (wearing flats because I still can't wear my heels! At least not for 8 hours).

On a brighter note, Mario & I are in the process of planning a vacation for our anniversary. Now it's not until April, but we need some ideas so we can book it. We want to go somewhere fun, but relaxing, and preferably warm, since our honeymoon only fit into the "fun" catagory. We have a few hundred dollars airline credit, so we don't wanna go somewhere too far away (we're cheap). Any suggestions?

Some Serious Baking...Seriously!

On Wednesday, my long time friend Sarah came over to help bake some cookies. Our small task turned into an entire afternoon of fun, emphasis on the fun. I dunno about Sarah, but I had to go lay down after that. Not smart to walk around barefoot on hard flooring, ouchies! Also from this experience, I have learned that I need new baking pans (hint. After all those cookies, we still threw almost 2 dozen away because they burned. Even my brother wouldn't eat them after we told him they were "chocolate." That was officially my contribution to the Holiday's. I love to cook/bake, but I'm still tired. Sarah, next time you come over, we're watching a movie instead!

Our Christmas Tree

This last Saturday, Mario & I went with Mom & Dad up to Shaver Lake to get our very first Christmas tree as a happily married couple :) These trees are definitely not my favorite, but at $3 a foot, it's kind of a hard price to beat. As you can see from the pics, the sun was out & it was so pretty. It was warmer up there than it was in Fresno, and there was no fog! Mom & Mario got some hot cocoa from Bob's Espresso :)
And the winner is this 7 footer. I'm fully convinced we picked the best tree they had. Not the fullest tree by far, but it'll do.
After that we stopped by the lake to check it out. It's kinda hard to tell, but the water is so low. I've never seen it like that before :( And since Dad "doesn't do pictures" here's mom by herself. Very cute :)Here's the final product. I don't know if it's just me, but I couldn't seem to get a clear picture of the tree with lights on, but a blurry pic is better than a focused one without the lights on. We went red, black & silver on the tree. Mar turned on the Christmas music while we decorated, such good times, I love being married to him.Lastly, I really wish this would have turned out, but this is our first ornament! It's a 3 tiered wedding cake that says "2008, Mr. and Mrs., Has a nice ring to it". Inside it has two interlocked rings hanging from it (you can kinda see in the pic), and on the back it says, "First Christmas Together."
I can already tell, this Christmas is gonna be awesome :)
