Shopping after the Holidays.

I went shopping today with Crystal. A lot of stores had good sales; from $5 to $20.

* H&M - Charlotte Russe - Forever 21 - Target

*On another note, I finally de-potted my Urban Decay Primer Potion today. I bought a travel kit from Forever 21 and it included a small jar, perfect for the UDPP. It would have been a waste if I tossed it since there is a good amount of product left in the fancy but poorly designed tube.

Merry Christmas!!!

Due to all the snow that we have been getting these past few weeks, we definitely had a white Christmas. The family opened presents at 12am. It was great seeing all the happy smiling faces. :)

Thanks to my boyfriend, family, and friends for the wonderful gifts. ♥

Today was filled with food and loved ones. Now onto the next holiday, New Years.


Presents all underneath the Christmas tree. We even got something for Penny, of course!


The benefits of having waist deep snow. This was on our top deck. It was like opening up to a humongous freezer with the sliding door.

Baby it's cold Outside.

It is snowing again here in the good ol Midwest. We are expecting another few inches on top of the already 15-20 something inches from two weekends ago. So here is a classic song I wanted to share. Actually this is KDWB's version. Dave is a little creepy in this video and maybe playing his part a little too well. Still great though. Ha!

Dave Ryan Show.

As you may or may not know, I love the Dave Ryan in the morning show. They are a local radio station (101.3 KDWB) I have mentioned them a few times in past posts and my Facebook statuses. My earphones decided to suddenly stop working last Monday. I suffered through my work week. I was literally bobbling my head and it was so hard to keep my eyes open. I am also sleep deprived. I work more hours in a week than the hours I get of sleep. Anyway, I found a pair of earphones at home and brought them with me to work this week. They definitely keep me up during my first four hours of work. The rest of the day is dedicated to Pandora. Thank goodness for that too.

Point is, I just wanted to share a few random videos from their youtube channel. Old and new.

Dave and Lena during Jingle Ball 2010. Lena is a catholic girl, who raps.


They sometimes reenact previous bits with these puppets. This was one of the most hilarious War of the Roses. WOTR is basically a listener who emails the show explaining that their boyfriend/husband or girlfriend/wife may be cheating. The show calls the "cheater" and pretends to be a phone company. Listen.


Dave Ryan show sends Intern John and Crisco to their Boss' house to light up fireworks on his lawn. They still have jobs.


Intern John eats turkey for Thanksgiving. Apparently, this is how it might have been like while eating on the Mayflower. I could not stop laughing when I first watched it.


McCrisco is a character played by Crisco. There are other ones with this character, but I liked this one. "That's what she said."

Hurry, please.

After over a week of waiting I finally received my Forever 21 package. It was a small order but I was excited for it. My favorite pieces out of the bundle are the leggings and the Spongebob tshirt. I gave the rose patterned thermal top to my little brother for his girlfriend. I really like it but it does not fit true to size. It was a little on the tight side. The Adore shirt is from my sisters Christmas wishlist. Hopefully she does not see this before Christmas Day. Now I am just waiting for my next package! I have a feeling it is going to take awhile too. Booooo.

Hi Sam. If you are reading this then it is your bad.

Living in a Winter Wonderland.

Apparently, we got the most snow this weekend. Twenty inches! Our neighbors are so kind. We woke up this morning and they have already plowed our driveway. So this morning when we moved our cars into the street to shovel the rest of the snow, it was easy. Of course we had to thank them. My parents car got stuck yesterday while turning the corner to our block, neighbors came to help also. We must pay them back this Christmas. :)


It is passed my knees. It can also be because I am short.

Waiting, patiently.

I made a Forever21 online purchase forever ago. At least it feels like it. Six days. That is long. They have not shipped it until recently. So they sent me an email apologizing and a code for 10% off my next purchase. Sweet! Of course I could not pass that up so I placed another order in today. Hopefully it gets here before Christmas. It was not a ton of money with the 10% off but during the holidays anything helps! I was supposed to do some Christmas shopping today but since we are snowed in it gave another reason to do some online shopping right from my very own bedroom. Speaking of snow, it is horrible outside. The snow is up to my knees. It has been seriously snowing all day. Wah wah.

I smell Soap.

Yesterday I received the two bars of soap I ordered from iViscents. They smell delicious. I especially want to take a bite out of the Birthday Cake bar... Hmmm, it says non-toxic, maybe I can take a bite. Overall, I am happy with the purchase.





On another note:
I went to Target earlier and grabbed a few miscellaneous items: plastic headbands, Olay dual action cleanser, adorable Santa socks, and thigh high socks in black.



* This is off topic but I just finally got my camera back so here is me during Black Friday. I made sure to bundle up. My feet still got cold even with two pairs of socks and snow boots. I am holding hand warmers. I held onto them for my dear life. They really did help. No lie. Look Mom, no gloves.

Cake > Sex.


Friday night I made "Better than Sex" cake at Tony's. It was deeeelicious!

Birthday Cake for my Knight in Shining Armor.

Last night I placed my order in from iViScents. I purchased two bars of soap; Birthday Cake and Knight in Shining Armor. I cannot wait until they arrive! I wanted to order a tub of iCing Body Frosting too but they were out and will be back in stock January 2011. If you are interested in looking at her other products and scents check out: http://www.iviscents.com.

I discovered iViScents through a b/vlogger; Kandee Johnson. I originally heard about iViScents from one of her youtube videos but I am now following her blog and subscribed to her youtube channel as well.

Thanksgiving Weekend.

I had a great Thanksgiving weekend. It was spent with friends and family. I stuffed my face this weekend with a ton of delicious food and pumpkin pie! Black Friday was approaching; Boyfriend and I did not have any huge purchases we wanted from Best Buy but after driving by it around 7:30pm and noticing the line was still short we drove home quickly and bundled up. It was freezing cold. If it were not for Tobe and Crys' propane heater, snow boots, and snow pants I don't think the Man and I would have survived the night. We probably would have given up. Since we were prepared, staying out 9 hours in the cold was not as bad. Don't get me wrong, it was bad but it could have been worst.

We also met a guy around our age. He was by himself and stood in line before us. Cool dude. We basically kept each other up the whole night/morning, sharing stories, blankets, and the heater.


Us from the entrance. So close yet so far.


Our setup that kept us alive.

Here my friends, are the only two things we purchased at Best Buy. Maybe not worth the cold and 9 hours of waiting but the experience was fun and we had a good time. But next year, we are only going if we want something worth the wait! We almost did not go this year but because of the short line, we had to do it. Last year we arrived around 10pm and were wrapped around half the building, less prepared, but it was less cold, and we bought a lot more things that were worth the wait. This year, Boyfriend picked up a computer monitor but the salesman showed us the wrong one. We didn't know until they rang us up and it showed the regular price. FAIL. The line was too long so he just said to forget it.

Santa, is that you?

The Man and I took Penny to Petsmart earlier and ran across this Christmas Holiday dog toy. At first I said, "This is cute! It's Santa." Then I noticed the slight awkwardness of its design. I showed the Boyfriend and he responded, "They weren't really thinking when they made this dog toy." I still think it is cute though. I really wanted to buy it just because, but we LOLed and put the toy away after I took a photo.



P.S. The roads are extremely slippery here. Black ice everywhere. No lie. I just got back from "ice skating" up and down the driveway. I was almost in crawling position trying to make my way back to the top. Our driveway is not even that steep. Fun to "skate" in but dangerous for driving. Be safe and drive carefully everyone!

Cold Sunday Afternoon.

Mai Khou and I have been planning on getting together for a shoot for the past few months. We have been busy and finally had time this past weekend. We scheduled for Sunday (11/13) at 2pm, a week in advance, unaware of how the weather would turn out. It ended up snowing all through Friday to Saturday and a little Sunday morning. We still had the shoot though. It was freezing cold but it turned out great, after all, we are Minnesotans. She did a wonderful job, fun and easy to work with. She was pro status, forreal.
