After eating dinner, we talked and talked and watched the dogs play with each other. Becca is my grandparents dog. She is 6 years old, almost 7. Becca wore a pretty Christmas bow in her hair. I have no clue how she didn't pull it out! She does NOT like hairbows!We then decided to play a game called "Sharp Shooters". My dad played this a long time ago and had to search for it. Thnak goodness for Ebay, because that's where he found it! It's a lot of fun and my grandparents always enjoy it. It's just a dice rolling game basically.This picture is used from boardgamesrus.com
After my grandparents left, my mom, dad, and I exchanged some gifts. We always include Chloe of course! My momma gave Chloe a little hamster called a Zhu-Zhu pet that apparently tons of kids are asking for this Christmas...well, my dog has one! She loves it too! I figured I would leave ya'll with a video of sweet Chloe Elizabeth playing with her new toy! Enjoy! *If you would like to hit mute so that you don't have to hear my southern accent , please do so :)*

Tonight, we had a work Christmas party at 'Koi', which is a Japanese restaurant. They have a Hibachi, which means they cook in front of you and provide entertainment. They also have sushi. I have NEVER in my life tried sushi....until tonight. Amie made me try it, and it was SOOOO good! It was called the 'Dothan Roll' and is fried sushi, so I didn't have to eat any of that raw stuff :)
Here's a pic of the 'Dothan Roll'! It was really good and the red on top is hot sauce.
Amie's hubby and kids joined us, and her boys were SO TIRED!!
'A' fell asleep during the chef entertaining us!!
Here's 'D' smiling for me! He was the one who was most awake!
"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”!! -Dr.Seuss
3 Days until Christmas!

While enjoying our meal, I met Darby at Fly Through Our Window! I read her blog almost daily. Amie saw her walking in and knows her, so she introduced us! Sorry, I didn't take a picture. Go ahead and 'Fly through their Window'! I promise after our fun lunch date, we went back to work! :)...after we stopped to get some donuts for the girls at work. It's the Holidays and we need our sugar! Amie had a coupon!
Last night was the Panty Party I talked about in an earlier post. It was so much fun just being able to talk and enjoy one another's company! Good food, Good fellowship, Great Panties, GREAT friends!
I took some pics of Heather's Christmas decorations. She has a beautiful home with celadon blue walls, and pretty lilac bathrooms! This super cute tree was on the guest bathroom counter.
This cute scene is on a table when you walk into the front door.
I hope you girls have a great rest of the weekend!! Enjoy every moment of this Christmas season!
5 Days Until Christmas!

Every so often I have a certain kind of gum that I am interested in and always have in my purse. The past month or so I have enjoyed Wrigley's Doublemint. In the Slim Pack! My Me-Maw has always had this gum in her purse since I was a little girl, and she used to always give me a piece in 'big church'! :) Loreal Telescopic Precision Liquid Eyeliner is AWESOME! I use carbon black, but it comes in brown too!
Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit
Burt's Bees is a MUST!
All things SHINY are great stocking stuffers too! :) What are some things you like to recieve in your stockings? A favorite stocking stuffer you've recieved in the past?

Place tray in oven for 2-2 1/2 minutes. You DO NOT want the rolo's to melt! You just want them to soften. Take them out and press a pecan half on the rolo. Put them in the fridge for a few minutes to set and BAM! Your done! They are soooo yummy!Look how ADORABLE these door hangers are? My boss and her husband made these out of wood, and I personalize them! They come with a cute bow and wire hanger! PERFECT for your front door, tree topper or hanging over your mantle! These are selling like crazy! They are $48.99 and id any of your ladies would like one, e-mail me! Shipping is an extra $11, unless you live in South Alabama and can pick it up!
Here's 2 of the girls I work with proudly showing off the ornaments!
Merry Christmas from my little reindeer Chloe!!

Mom and I went shopping Sunday afternoon to finish some Christmas shopping and do some shopping for ourselves :)
My grandparents always babysit Chloe for us when we go to Montgomery because it's on the way and we can just drop her off and know that she's in good hands! We had to stop at CVS and get a prescription and the sweet little girl at the drive-thru gave Chloe a heart shaped dog biscuit :)
Chloe usually likes to ride on the center console (don't worry we hand on to her!) but she REALLY LOVES when her 'Cha-Cha' holds her. (Cha-Cha is what Chloe calls my momma, it's what she wants her grankids to call her because it's cool and hip!)
After we dropped Chloe off we headed to Bass Pro Shop. This place is HUGE! (and sooo NOT my kind of place) but we had to finish up my Uncle and my little cousin Danley. They LOVE Bass Pro, so we knew that whatever we got, they would love :) The only thing Mom and I ever get ourselves when we go to Bass Pro are some Cinnamon Cashews and a Diet Coke! These cashews are so YUMMY! Have any of you had them? They have them at a few malls as well.
As we were leaving Bass Pro...we saw something.. A TJMAXX!!! I'm not sure if any of you know about my love for TJMAXX, but it's alot of love. We decided to stop and see if they had anything we just couldn't live without.
We did find a super cute wooden and country looking tree hanger. I think we are going to put it in the center of a wreath on the front door :) Also, I found 3 cute pink/lime green Christmas bags that I got for a 'Panty Christmas Party' that I'm going to on Saturday night. It's where you bring a (new, OF COURSE) pair of panties and play Dirty Santa. There's only 4 of us that are having it, we are close friends and we have different sizes, so we are just buying 1 pair for each girl! I went to Victorias Secret and got those and wrapped them! So cute!
Have you ever seen this little dessert spot? Is it good? We were going to grab a cookie but we decided on Starbucks later :)
There's an outside mall in Montgomery and it's all decorated for Christmas, and Christmas music is playing as your stroll from store to store.
Here's our loot...or some of it :)
I LOVE 'Miss Me' Jeans! I will recommend them to anyone! Sizes 25-32. They are WONDERFUL! I bought this pair and they are so cute! There's a full shot and a close up of the rhinestone pocket. I have two other pairs of Miss Me's. One has rhinestone buttons and another of just plain with brown stitching. I love how Miss Me uses the thick white stitching like True Religion Jeans, but are HALF or more than half the price! :)
On the way home we stopped and ate supper at Five Guy's. This is what I ate! I LOVE their fries!
So...What do you do when you need to make a QUICK treat for company or a cookie/candy swap? Check back later to find out! :)
Have a good night!
