Our Christmas Village and a few more Ornaments...

Aaron just loves the Dept 56 villages, he started collecting a few years ago. We hope to add to it every year. This is our village thus far, it was so much fun putting together. It reminded me of playing with toys as a child. Aaron says I do such a good job he let me set it all up! So here it is..
Our tree and village, the village sits behind our sofa on our sofa table!

And some additional ornaments I took pics of to add on here,
I just love this sandal heel! With a bit of Bling, Cuteness
I love everything Cheetah and I love Pink! This is so ME!
And these are my Angel Wings with my little Initial! ♥

Christmas Tree 2010
Thought I'd share a few pic of my tree, and a few of my favorite ornaments! I just love Christmas and I also LOVE LOVE LOVE decorating my home for the holidays! It can be so much fun! O and did I mention, I really love all my xmas music in my itunes list! So festive!

Our Tree

If you know me, you know my love for Mickey Mouse, I have collected many many many Mickey ornaments through the years. He can be found all over my tree, here are a few of my favorites. :)
Purchased from Hallmark, years ago!!

This is a little Lennox ornament I believe I got from Macys. He is kinda difficult to see!

Cute Bling Peace and Love this Mickey one! I actually have 2 of these Mickeys. This year they sold out at Hallmark before xmas so I purchased one prior for myself. Well my boss got me one too! But thats ok bc, ... I love me some mickey mouse!

My grandma would get me one of these angels every year at Christmas! I continue to get them and add to my collection. They are Mary's Angels, a hallmark collection.

These are my new additions for 2010, the cupcake Hallmark Series is new! And Daffodil, what a sweet little angel.

Ok, so those are a few of my favs! I bought a few last night that I will hopefully get some pics of tomorrow and add! They are my "GaGa" ornaments! Someone heard me say that at the store last night when I was purchasing them and they said "you are right"! O the love for GaGa. I went to her concert this year! It was the BEST show ever! I just love her music and her individuality! So, GaGa ornaments to follow.

My dad got me this one for my last year to toast to 2010, Thanks Dad!

Happy Holidays to all!

Why Not?

I love to search the web and look at other's blogs, so I thought, why not do my own. I love reading blogs to find fun decorating ideas, make up tips and whatever else fun stuff I run across. Its so fun to share thoughts, and ideas!

So I will start with a few of my favorite things.......

I will with the loves of my life.

My Shihtzu, Eli. He is my bestest littly buddie. He is so sweet and lovable! Aaron and I became a family when I adopted Eli in December 2008. When I brought this little guy into our life, Aaron never knew how much love he would bring. Meet the little guy,

"Little E"

Next, My "Lovey", Aaron. I moved to Az almost 4 1/2 yrs ago and met him right away! We have been together for 4 years and we couldnt be happier :) We have a beautiful home (at least we think so), and a little mini family with our little Eli.
My family. They are still in St Louis, I miss them lots and lots! I am an only child and wish so much that they could live in sunny Az close to me!

And not to foget, my beautiful home. But I kinda already mentioned that above. :)

Also, I have the cutest little cousin (but I call her neice), Lily Jean. And boy is she a little angel sent from above. Im sure I will share a pic or 2 on here of her. And a little cousin ( again I call him nephew), Tanner "Tan~Man". He is getting so big, he was a baby when I moved here to Az and he is already 4 about to be 5 next month. Time is just flying on by!

And now onto the finer necessities in life :) Things and places a girl cant be without!

Starbucks, Target, Mac Counter, Nordies (just to name a few). I love the caramel macchiato, but right now at Xmas time I love the peppermint frappe. Target, well, its just one of those places you cant live without. You can find a bit of everything here! If you dont like Target, I must hear about this. Even the doc I work for says, "Is there a woman that doesnt like Target? Why do you girls like that place so much?" And well the other day while at Nordstrom, I mentioned to my mom if I had to choose one store, Nordies would be IT! <3>
