    Today I bought two bundles of ornamental swirly twigs that you put in large floor vases to look festive. The cafeteria was having a remodeling sale, and the bundles were $1 each. That's a steal, because they look great. I might add a few glitter swirly twigs for the holidays.

    I am waiting until I hit a very significant weight-loss goal. And once I do, I have decided to have a smooth dress made from my dress-maker. The holidays gave me a bit of a setback, but I'm excited to get back on track. Slow and steady wins the race, and at the finish line, a sparkly, rhinestone covered sensation (likely in red lol).

    To the Bahamas? On Norwegian Sky? That's just what we did! (Except we did the 4-night cruise.)

    If you're headed to the Bahamas, DO NOT MISS GOLD ROCK BEACH on Grand Bahama Island. Well, if it's a nice day and you like sun and ocean and beach and stuff. But if you do...Do.Not.Miss.It.

    Yes, Peaches, NCL Norweigan Sky. We did this cruise last year in February for my bio-dad 80th,,,and it was a great family reunion as well. This time we will be going January 18th weekend.
    This year it's for his wifes 75th she loved it so much. This time, we are getting a cabana on the beach at Grand Cay...and it's still a family reunion of sorts, my little sister, her DH and family just moved back to Florida after living 9 years in Vienna Austria....
    Love it. Thanks for the tips.

    Yesterday I bought a new TV....
    The TV had everything I wanted except it also had 3D which was not on my wish list.
    So in the store my husband and I google the TV to make sure we could turn the 3D off, OK no problem.

    Well after all, this 3D stuff is fun... We had to try it out so we put the glasses on and go to on demand and watched Nemo in 3D, very very cool. So it got me to thinking.... It is a smart TV and I can get to my youtube page. OMG, how horrible it would be to watch a comp video on this TV and see me jumping out of the TV with horrible technique...

    Some things are better left simple!

    I bought DS a t-shirt that says Bazinga! Now I'm tempted to steal it for myself. :)
