I'm a real Texan!

Another Christmas has come and gone. We spent a great day with great family! Holiday's always seem a little daunting due to what I like to call the "holiday shuffle". Driving from Fort Worth to Waco to Granbury to Cleburne and back home is a little exhausting but well worth it in the end. This year was fairly easy due to Kris's dad and his family being in Panama and his Grandfather, unfortunately, has a horrible case of Shingles, which crossed him off the visit list. All in all it has been a great last couple days. Check out the picture below of my Christmas gift from my great husband! I'm finally a REAL Texan!!!

I had tried these boots on a year ago at the Stockshow but couldn't bring myself to pay the hefty price tag. They are by far the most expensive thing in my closet!

Thought I'd stick in a preggo picture for your viewing enjoyment :) 28 weeks and counting!

Sunday night I woke up to icicles forming on my toes. I got up to check the thermostat and to my horror it was 59 in our house!!!!! Two things went through my head, "something is wrong with the thermostat OR my husband is going to sleep outside if he turned off the heat before we went to bed." Turns out it was the thermostat. After some troubleshooting on our part, we figured out that it would work but only when it was on the fan. As soon as we would turn it to auto it would get all funky. So, we call our heater/ac man, James, to come on out and fix the problem! James gets here, clicks it over to auto, low and behold it runs like a charm! He tried everything to make the stupid thing act up...nothing! I thought of it as a little Christmas present. We didn't have to fork over a bunch of money to fix the stupid thing. An hour and a half later, our digital thermostat is out completely! Lets hope this is a quick fix and won't break the bank two days before Christmas :(

R&R here I come!!

Tomorrow begins our long journey to Taos, New Mexico. Being a pilot's daughter, road trips always sound like a bad idea to me. Why drive when you can fly! Although, once on the road I thoroughly enjoy myself. Kris and I had so much fun on our road trip to Ohio a couple years ago (I'm actually NOT being sarcastic). I must say, I am quite handy with a map of the U.S.! Anyways...we leave tomorrow and will be back Friday. I won't be doing any skiing, but I have a couple good books and will be doing a lot of NOTHING!

One shot of Demerol...$2000 please!

All I have to say is Thank God for insurance! We got the statement from our emergency room rendezvous a few weeks ago. The total bill was just under $2000! Let me remind you of what went on. I was stuck in a "room", given 3 bags of fluid, a shot of Demerol for pain and a shot of Phenergan for puking. They were nice enough to let me sleep it off and boot us out around 2:30am.

I must was worth every penny!!!!
