Feast your eyes on this. Just to preface, my auntie recommended this book to me a couple years ago and it is fantastic. I read it twice. The fact that they cast Robert 'Edward' Pattinson in the role is a pure koinkidink. But greatly appreciated.
It's called 'Water for Elephants' by Sara Gruen. Read. It.

and then some spiked Eggnog entered our lives,
and then we thought it would be a good idea to pass around the Eggnog,
and then instead of getting up to go get cups for the Eggnog, we thought it would be better to take a swig from the bottle and pass it around,
and then we continued having the time of our lives,
and then we recovered on Sunday from the 'Time of Our Life Ugly Christmas Sweater Party',
and then on Monday morning half the party woke up with chills, aches, and vomiting...
Ah, the gift that keeps on giving..

Ladies and Gents,
As of today, I am the proud owner of one ugly Christmas sweater. (Thanks Ebay!) I was actually nervous as I was counting down the last two minutes of the auction. Then I shouted, "I WON!" even though it shouldn't really be called winning something, if you have to pay up at the end...
Here are some things to ponder.
Why did I purchase this ugly Christmas sweater? For the 'Ugly Christmas Sweater Party' I'm attending of course.
A few more, and you are on your own on these.
Why does Rudolph only have one hoof?
Why does Rudolph have so much 'junk in the trunk'?
What's with the flag? Are they one a golf course?
Is that tree smiling at me?
So many questions from such a simple little sweater.
Also, I can't guarantee I won't wear this sweater more than once, like on actual Christmas Day.

I have officially found the Coffee-mate holiday flavors at my grocery store. Cartwheels ensued and I almost broke out dancing to 'Do You Love Me' when it came on over the load speaker in the store but that's a whole different story. Okay, okay, the cartwheels were in my head but cartwheels were performed okay?
I purchased, 'Pumpkin Spice' and 'Sugar and Spice' (not sure what this tastes like but it had a cookie on the bottle so it promptly ended up in my cart. And apparently I like some spice in my life). You can also find 'Gingerbread Latte', and 'Egg Nog' and 'Peppermint Mocha' (!!!!!!) A little tip for ya, spend the $2.50 on this instead of your Starbucks and you can have approximately 882 more of your favorite holiday coffee drinks.
I'm a Basirico, and if you weren't already aware, bargains make us really happy. I mean really, really happy, to the point where we do cartwheels in our heads.

I have super cute pics of the cutest child in the universe, but that's going to take awhile, so I figured I would hold you over with a quick story.
I've been listening to this 'soft rock' radio station at work ever since they called me on the phone and told me if I gave them my name I could win $1,000 dollars if I heard them call it out on the radio. I know, I'm a sucker, but I figured it might be a sign seeing as how they called a day after I did $1,200 dollars worth of damage to my hubs car while trying to pull into the garage and the house got in my way. (It was at a weird angle!) Anywhoo, some old songs play on this radio station and they bring back some funny memories of when I was growing up. "Tell me one!", you beg? Okay, well today while I was diligently waiting for the D.J. to scream 'Brooke Seiden!!!' on the radio, 'Like a Prayer' came on by Madonna and I remembered this little ditty.
This song came out when I was making my 'First Holy Communion' and I was in L.O.V.E with it. For my communion present I remember being in Wal-mart and telling my Mom it was the ONLY thing I wanted, pretty sure it was cassette tapes back then folks. So my Mom thought it was reasonable and pretty fitting that I should own this song, 'Like a Prayer' for my 'First Holy Communion' and thus I was able to own my own Madonna cassette tape so I could sing it over and over,until... I was watching the video on T.V. one day and then my Mom, in horror, saw Madonna, not only dancing in scantily dressed clothing...no, no, that's not it, she was dancing in front of BURNING crosses. Yah. Not such a holy moment after that. So thanks Madge. And don't worry, I will let y'all know as soon as I win my $1,000 dollars.

Saturday the hubs and I stopped by for apple fritters and fresh hot apple cider on our way to Greenwich. Even though the hubs says there are no actual apples in the said fritters, the delicious fried dough, more than makes up for it.
The leaves are starting to change and my favorite pumpkin spice ice cream is now available at J Fosters (the ice cream parlor located conveniently down the street).
Fall is here and I am loving it, even if the waistline on my pants is not.
