Christmas'd out!

There was gift unwrapping, yummy food eating, quite a bit of drinking and tons and tons of family!  Robert and I thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas, but man, I am glad that's over.  I'm ready to start a new year!
Look how excited he is!
Robert has a strange little love for Hello Kitty, so I got him this humidifier.
I feel the love!
Far left is from my mom, the middle one is from me to Robert and the one of the left is from Robert to me.
I love our new posters!

Christmas waffles!  AKA waffles with green and red sprinkles.
Enjoying some french wine & vodka in our new Forever Lazy knock offs from my mom. 
They're so warm and cozy!

Here's to the Holidays...

Trying my best to enjoy the holidays even though keeping up with the store has been a bit stressful and there have been some major changes at work.  Good thing I have all my holiday shopping done!

Christmas Came Early

No, I'm not engaged.  I'm sure you noticed that it's on my index finger instead of my ring finger.  Robert got me this adorable little ring as a replacement for a $5 ring we got in Vegas.  It's sort of a promise ring, but I don't want to call it that because, well, I hate the idea of them.  I'm just calling it a little tiara for my finger that means Robert really loves me.  It's kind of nice to have something sparkly to look at while I'm typing on the computer.  I guess Robert couldn't wait a whole seven days to give this to me and now I'm really feeling the pressure, I hope he likes what I got him!

Saturday Morning Special

My Dad's Dad
by Alex Mobley

By the time I was born
he had already past
a young man at his death
the loss came much too fast
I hear stories all the time
about the person I never knew
always having his camera ready
to get the best possible view
he lived like most people should
at least that's what I hear
being happy for the most part
sharing his love and joy and cheer
to me he is just a vision
but to some he was much more
that's why I wish I knew him
got the chance to learn and explore
what memories he can share
about my families history
some of which I have been told
others are still a mystery
what started the family business?
what was his childhood like?
what was his favorite food?
did he teach my dad to ride a bike?
just these simple questions
most of which could be explained
but not by him with his words
or the way in which he maintained
a few things are for certain
he has been sorely missed
even though he isn't still here
its obvious he still exists
see my life was definitely changed
before I was even living
because he taught my own dad
the same advice he's been giving

I'm back!

Sorry for the disappearing act.  Last week I had 24 orders and then my mom came to visit for the weekend and on top of everything, work has been absolute madness and it's only Wednesday!  Hopefully things slow down a little bit, but with Christmas less than two weeks away and a road trip only three weeks away, I'm thinking I might not catch a break for a while!

All dressed up for our date night, isn't our tree fabulous?

Saturday Morning Special

Days of the Lost
by Alex Mobley

Something has gone wrong
This is not where I belong
I am in a different place
I am in another's space
What is going on 
This day it feels so long
it started just as any other
it ended much like another
these days are few and far between
I don't quite understand what they mean
I'm awoken from a middays nap
I can not shake this empty gap
its still not my reality
I will not believe it tragedy
crazed thoughts racing through my mind
what has caused this change in kind
is this only my own feeling
or is someone else's reeling
at this random mix-ed up day
that will not go away
This must be my own creation
a creative abomination
of life and liberty 
that led to this diversity
in the stagnant life i lead
that started as a seed
which light has made essential 
to reach its full potential
to have thoughts like my own
that i myself have grown
into an increasing fear
that might not yet be clear

Think Before You Act
by Alex Mobley

hate may be a strong word
but it's one that's often used
describing events occurred
leaving people broke and bruised
sticks they can hurt some
stones will tatter upon the rest
the beautiful and handsome
will be the most depressed
they don't compose the strong will
that nerds and geeks comprise
high school was their one thrill
they are soon to realize
the ones they called the outcasts
are soon to take control
if they only saw the forecast
found out their future role
dead end jobs they can partake
that lead them to the end
we pity those for their sake
trying never to offend
so where do i fit in to
it's hard to put up labels
with only one chance to redo 
my fate is not a fable
no creatures can take the place
of your own fallen dreams
step back and try to embrace
without expelling any screams

The Little Things

Trying my best to blend in.
The gunk on my bike is glitter, I promise it looks better in person and will look really good when it's done.
