"Convenient Wiener"

Have you ever seen one of these! A wiener dog convenience store! I passed two of these stores on my way to Hutto for Thanksgiving. I had no idea they even existed. Apparently they have been around for 40 years and are located in Round Rock, Hutto, Pflugerville, Liberty Hill, Georgetown, and northwest Austin. I think they should venture down to Waco =)

Let The Countdown Begin!

I just saw the advertisement on MSN! Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is coming out July 17, 2009! Keep in mind this movie was supposed to be released November 2008. So I'm annoyed that I have to wait 8 months before I can see it. I am very excited though, at least I got to see the trailer! Check it out!

It's Time For A Good Laugh

This will make you laugh! Jeff Dunham is a very talented ventriloquist/comedian. Achmed the Dead Terrorist is my favorite character. He makes me laugh so hard! One of his favorite things to say is, "Silence! I keel you!" I love that! It's so funny and is definitely my favorite Achmed quote. Here is a video of the Christmas Special with Achmed the Dead Terrorist. Enjoy!

Mistletoe Moments

I think we all have had "Mistletoe" moments. If you have seen Four Christmases you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't seen the movie yet, put it on your to do list! I laughed through the entire movie! Many of the scenes reminded me of my own "mistletoe" moments. This is a must see movie! Here is one of my favorite scenes, mainly because Vince Vaughn really is gagging.

Doxie Baby Shoes

If I ever have children you know I WILL be buying these. These are the cutest baby shoes I have ever seen! I found them on Etsy.

Doggie Leg Warmers!

This is one of my greatest finds ever! I love love love these! I have never seen leg warmers for dogs. I am so glad I ran across them! Callie looks fabulous in her new leg warmers! Hot Stuff ;)

This is a video of Romeo walking in his leg warmers. He was making us laugh so hard, because he was kicking up his back legs.

Interesting Combination

We stopped by Hemingway's tonight. A friend of ours ran to the store and came back with Funyuns and Whoppers. This looked like a heck of a combination sitting next to my glass of wine. I had to take a picture, it was too funny.

Wii Fit

I finally found a Wii Fit last night at Best Buy! I have been looking for one for awhile now. The balance games look like so much fun =) They have snowboarding, how fun is that! I can't wait to hook it up! I love my Wii! I know, I'm such a nerd =)

Winter Wonderland Peppermintini

I ran across this drink recipe and thought it looked really good! I have never tried it, but how cute for a Christmas party! Can't wait to taste it =)

2 tsp. Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
Optional Garnish: 1 small candy cane

Directions: Place powdered creamer and sweetener in a glass. Add 1/4 cup warm water and stir to dissolve.
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add creamer mixture, vodka, and peppermint extract. Cover and shake well, until mixture is cold.

I Heart My Starbucks Mug

I'm so happy about getting to use my red Starbucks thermos. Do people still use that word? Oh well, Shelly and I enjoy that "old school" word =) It's the little things in life! I only drink coffee in the fall and winter months. It's way too hot in the summer for coffee, for me anyway. So I'm super excited about getting to use my mug. It reminds me of Christmas =) Please excuse the excessive amount of sticky notes on my computer. I'm a little obsessed with those too.
