Wheel of Fortune

Aubri is the blonde and I am the other one. Wheel of fortune for the wii is a blast! Aubri rented it but I sure am thinking of buying it, you think you are actually on the show. Now if we could get the prize money to spit out of the bottom of the tv that would be awesome


this picture of teal lake was hanging in my bedroom (of course I forgot to shoot a before picture)

this is the shelf that is in its place
Tulip painting Lina painted for me to give to my hubby for christmas, see the S+C in the lower left corner (another new plant from IKEA, my elephant toe plant, let's hope lola doesn't eat this one). Steven hung the painting a little high but I may have to just deal with it...
my favorite gift tyler ever gave me

December 22nd

My neighbor gives me, I mean us, a loaf of saffron bread every year for christmas. I don't like to share it but I sometimes cave and let steven have a piece. I really do love it!
I am officially on vacation from today until January 3rd. I will attempt to make saffron bread (or rolls) for the first time on my vacation, wish me luck!
