can haz?

All I can think about is decorating. And new dishes. And tomato soup?

I am really tempted to put all my bright crazy paintings in storage and do simple black and white prints in my room. Daddy can make me some frames and I can just blow up pictures that I (or sarah or seth or ansel adams) have taken.
My dreams look like this:

Ok ok and then pretend this is Mom, Camille, Kate and me.
Kate is the dork with glasses, im the creepy hungry one on the left.
Ummm also, Dad can you build me this bed frame?

So I miss Kate a lot right now it was so much fun to have her here. Obviously Camille and Liv need to come back IMMEDIATELY. Chewy back? Chewy nice? Yes.

Went to the gym with the fam this morning. Made me smile that it truly was a family event. Dad, Boy, Mom and I all got up at the ass crack of dawn and worked out. I even saw the sunrise! I liked it so much I think i'll do it again tomorrow....

My mom is the bomb because she made me my own special funeral potatoes with NO onions and cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken.

I love you mommy.

oh man

I just had a realization:

For my entire existence... on Christmas day, I have consumed the exact same meal.
Every time.

*I am not complaning, I love funeral potatoes.
** Mom says I'm wrong and that for the past couple years they've been totally branching out.

Can I just say I hate snow? I hate snow. There I said it.
About a week ago my mom and I drove down to Arizona with Camille and Olivia. It was pretty fun to road trip with them. Also fun because it was my first time ever hanging out in AZ. As soon as we entered AZ there was this giant dust storm and we couldn't see anything around us. Camille did a really good job of driving safely. That night, (after arriving safely and cleaning ourselves up) we went shopping and had a lovely dinner. Mom and I flew home the next day. Good times :)

Just in case you forgot how cute my life is, here is a picture of Olivia holding Lizzys hand.

Lizzy is a pretty good sport. She lets Olivia chase her, ride on her like a pony, and they hold hands/paws.

Also I miss Olivia so much that sometimes I do weird things like...

Yeah thats a sippy cup. I was just drinking my grapefruit juice. No big deal.

Kate will be here on Tuesday, really looking forward to that.

So not much else has been going on... nothing too exciting to tell yall about.

over and out.

lesson learned

Dear Candice,

Recent studies have shown that 4 out of every 12 mugs purchased online will arrive at your doorstep in pieces. The people here at the Use Your Money Wisely Foundation for Girls Who Spend Too Much On Useless Shit, would like to extend a warning to you: Please do not purchase more fragile glass items on the internet. If you do so, your heart will break, just like the glass you spent your hard earned money on.

If you require further assistance please contact me.

Someone who is smarter than you.

Oh and...

I have an etsy problem.
Mug dealin.

Conversation with coworker...
Wifebeater: Oh fun mugs! So you have a lot of parties?
Me: No...
Wifebeater: So why all the mugs then?
Me: Uh... for drinking stuff?

Apparently you have to have lots of friends and parties in order to justify a newfound mug fetish.

Griswald style, Plus a saw.

My family is so super bad ass.
After Thanksgiving, which was marvelous, we went up to "Christmas Meadows" which is just past Evanston. About 1.5 hours drive from our house. Why, you might ask? Because we decided to cut down our own christmas tree this year. My Dads friend does this frequently apparently. Olivia LOVED the snow and ice. She is so damn cute I might just die of cute overdose. Kate and I concluded that basically no matter what she says or does it makes us melt. We will give her everything she wants (within reason).

So we ran around for a while looking for the perfect tree. Kellen found it, gathered us around so we could agree, daddy cut it down, and kellen hauled it down the hill over his shoulder. Lotta sap. :)

Its cuter in our living room. Mom decorated it real nice like. I'll take a picture of it later and post it for your viewing pleasure. It was nice having Kellen here, smart guy, gotta love him.

I wish Kate could have stayed... for.... infinity.

So Liv can't say Candice, Candy, Or Dice. Whenever I would ask her what my name is she'd just stare at me. So we had to make up a name for me right? Thank Mama for thinking of Chubaca. Now Liv calls me Chewy. And its probably the most cutest thing ever. HI chewyyyyyy!!!!!!

I love you.

While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

So when you come back
We'll have to make new love
