So the other day me and a friend (who will remain nameless to protect the innocent) were talking and she was saying how right now would be a good time to have a boyfriend since another guy isn't quite getting the hint that she isn't interested...and he is....So I was of course trying to add to the conversation and said "Yeah, I could use a boyfriend too.... to....buy me cute, fuzzy teddy bears!" At which point my friend started laughing really hard and says, "Forget the teddy bears, what about dinner!" To which I quickly replied "Oh yea! Dinner...and teddy bears!!!" :) So there is my current logic for "needing" a boyfriend...at least the logic that I could come up with in a 2 second span lol! Speaking of boys...and beautiful ones at that....all I've been listening to since Monday is Michael Buble's new Christmas cd....it's beyond wonderful! He has an original song on there called "Cold December Night" and it's definitely one of my favorites! He writes the best songs...and this one is no exception...he wrote the most genius lyric EVER! It's on the bridge of the song and he says "They call it the season of giving, I'm here and yours for the taking (repeat), so kiss me on this cold, December night..." GENIUS! Why has no one ever thought of that before!?!?!?! Every time I hear it I get a big smile on my face because the amazingness of the lyric hits me every single time. Brilliant. And now speaking of Christmas.... I put my tree up in my room last night! :) It's my little 4 footer...but I love it :) It just has the lights and tinsel on it because I need to get some new ornaments to better match my bedroom here so I'm waiting til I have all of my ornaments to decorate it so that I don't have to rearrange and take stuff off....so it needs to be Nov. 1 so that all of the Halloween stuff will be gone and all of the Christmas stuff will be out cuz no one has their ornaments out yet :P I'm actually writing this sitting on my floor next to my lit up tree, while Christmas music plays and a pine scented candle burns in my room...pure bliss...now if it would just hurry up and snow!!! I want snow sooooo bad and NY and the rest of the East Coast got a bunch of it today...and I'm extremely bitter and jealous :P I also want a gingerbread latte...I've been craving one for at least a week now...another good reason for November to hurry up and get here! The other night I was lying in bed trying to fall asleep and thinking of how adulthood isn't all that it's cracked up to be...and I could only think of about 3 good things about being an adult...I will share those with you now: 1. On a rare occasion you have money to buy yourself something nice, 2. You can drive yourself where ever you want to go and 3. You don't get grounded for saying rude things to people...I'm sure there are many more perks to being an adult than that...but late at night and half asleep that was all I could come up with...so there you have it. I love DSW because they always have fabulous shoes and a rewards program but the problem is that since I'm enrolled in their rewards program I keep getting all of these fabulous coupons and deals and it makes me feel like I MUST take advantage of the coupon and/or deal and go buy another pair of shoes!!! This is simply unfair...especially since I shouldn't spend money...so I am currently exercising great self control and NOT using my 2nd $10 off coupon that they sent me.... yes that means that I used the first one, BUT I did need a new pair of brown flats, so it was used out of necessity. See I was able to justify it...and now I have a fabulous, new pair of brown flats :) being a girl is so wonderful sometimes....most of the time it's just awful, but times like that it's pretty grand ;) So I'm trying to decide if I just want to stick with bulb and snowflake ornaments for my tree or if I want to try to find silver Eiffel Tower ornaments and use those too to go with the Paris theme in my room.....hmmmmmm......decisions.....oh boy I need to go write my Christmas list so that my family can buy me wonderful presents ;) For once I'm having an extremely hard time writing a Christmas list...this never happens to me! I'm the kid that wrote the 10 page, size 8 font Christmas list! (No joke, ask my siblings...they still make fun of me for it to this day.... *sigh*)

I'm baaaaaccccckkkkkk!!!!! :) Hello from Abby and Sadie! It's been a long time...and soooo much has happened but I'm not even about to rehash the 3 most amazing months of my life that I spent in France...you can read my other blog to find out about those...but now that I'm back home and back into the groove of things I'm feeling more and more Christmassy every day! (You knew this was coming sooner or later...it's fall and when fall comes Abby gets obsessed with Christmas) This really has been one of the nicest falls we've had in a while. And while fall is my favorite season, Christmas is my favorite holiday with winter being a close second for my favorite season...sooooo I've decided that all I really want to do this winter is go on my first ever for real sleigh ride. Not one of those "sleigh rides" where you are pulled in a hay-filled wagon by a couple horses...that's a hayride. I want to go on a for real sleigh ride! I've wanted to ever since I was a little girl (dream inspired by Little House on the Prairie books lol)....sadly it's never happened :( I want to go on one and get to sit in the sleigh, low to the ground with a big, warm fuzzy blanket over me and a horse or 2 pulling me across the beautiful white snow! *sigh* hopefully this dream will come true one winter of my life....
So the other day I was wishing I was one of those beautiful, rich girls with the fabulous wardrobe, lots of friends and the beautiful boy friend.....until I quickly realized that if I was that girl, everyone would simply love me because of my looks and my money...that having that fabulous wardrobe would mean having waaaayyyy too many choices every morning...so I have since then decided to be content with being normal, average me...that way I am guaranteed that my friends love me for quirky old me...according to all of my family and friends my wardrobe is already big enough ;) and whenever that beautiful boyfriend does eventually come along he won't just like me cuz I have a pretty face or a lot of money...but he'll like me for me....weirdness and all :) So this is the face that I make to all of you people out there striving to be Barbie doll or some other ridiculous, unattainable person :P Jesus wouldn't have made you if He didn't like you. So there.
Have I ever mentioned that the N'Sync Christmas cd makes me smile no matter what?!
I have been on a rather creative kick lately and am embroidering robots on my t-shirts....and now on a t-shirt for my manager cuz she loved mine, and my mom wants Christmas themed dish towels for her kitchen so if I can ever find Christmas transfers I'll be making her those too....I always feel like an old lady whenever I say that I embroider lol! So it's always been one of my little secrets that I never share cause people are like "You do what?!..." They just don't know that it actually means you can make your clothes look way cooler by putting things like robots on them :)
I bought new comforters for my 2 twin beds in my room...now I can get rid of my striped comforters that look like they belong in a 12 yr old boy's room....which I can't say much about since I did pick them out....granted that was 6 years ago and at the time they were one of the few blue and brown options out there...I guess that's what happens when a girl makes her room colors that are commonly thought of as "boy colors"...that's just sexist. So now I'll just go to JoAnn's and buy pretty blue and brown fabric and make covers for the white comforters that I just bought! Look at me being all crafty! Who knew!?
Well as fun as writing a new blog has been I'm completely exhausted and about to just die right here on my bedroom floor...which would be tragic...then I'd never get to enjoy my new comforters....or any more N'Sync Christmas music...or go on that sleigh ride that I've been dreaming of for years....or eat more chocolate....ok for real I'm going to bed. Good night world.
