New test date after the holidays. Blah dont even want to think about it until after the New Year.

Well we have offically finsihed Christmas shopping for the kids,nephew, and lil something for moms and sis in law. The mall was pretty crazy but glad we went early. Even got to pick out my gifts fromt he hubs...lots of yummy Bath and Body Works products and 2 new shirts and a pair of capri dressy pants. Pretty sweet.
We finally pulled out one family tradition tonight and went together and looked at Christmas lights all over town. Then topped it off with holiday milk shakes. yummy ( so paying for that later). Tomorrow getting the food and cookie stuff. The kids and I will make sugar cookies(tradition #2) in the afternoon and then after dinner they will get to open one gift that is marked under the tree. Their xmas jammies they get every year!
I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and would love to hear of anyone elses traditions.

Tomorrow is D Day

Tomorrow is my Fl Real Estate Exam....they say only 60% pass it the first time. Those arent great odds! Ive studied so much im thinking I will forget it all. The formulas are my down fall. If I have them in front of me its no owrries I can do the math. Some of the laws im a bit sketchy on but most im good to go. Say a Pray for me -----this would be a AWESOME christmas gift for myself I tell ya just to know ive accomplished it is HUGE. Since being laid off my self esteem has been in the crapper(for lack of a better term) and a boost to the ole ego would be awesome.Well im saying prayers and hoping for a Christmas miracle.

Quick Christmas Tour of our home.

Ive got a much smaller tree than normal this year but we went with a theme of turquiose,mint green, and purple and silver. Turned out pretty good. My christmas village is placed along our bar between livingroom and kitchen. I bought a cheap little pine tree that was at a thift store last year for 1.00 and made flowers,ribbon swirls, and a few cinnamon sticks and a strand a lights and it turned out pretty darn good for maybe 4$ total.
