    Probably not FFF material, but since DH was half asleep this morning and not properly responsive to my excitement over this, I'm going to share it here...  About a year ago (I think), I retired a pair of jeans to the back of my closet because I just couldn't pull them off anymore.  But all my other jeans were in the laundry this morning, and I wasn't going to pass up the last denim Friday of the year, so I tried them on and they fit!  Yipee!

    Yay, Alana!!! That is so exciting. I'm back in a pair of jeans I hadn't worn in a year or so, also! I just hope I can keep it up over the holidays Surprised

    I really hate it when people pull you into an argument. FSIL was mad at FI, and she sent him a really nasty email and CC"d it to me. It was very upsetting to me, because I can't imagine ever saying anything that mean to my sister. I guess she's done this before, because he acted like it was normal and said he'd fix it, but it still really upset me.

    I'm hosting a Pampered Chef party on Sunday and I'm more annoyed about it than excited about it....I kind of wish I hadn't agreed to it so close the holiday's.

    There are several Knottie regulars on here whose weddings I really wanted to see and hear about and they haven't been back since.  I wish they would come back and share the details with us.  I know they're not obligated to but it would be nice.

    Mariah, I know how you feel. I'm the type of person who cant say no to anything. Can you babysit? Yes. Will you do this for me? Yes. After I say yes, I think about it and dont really wanna do it, but I suck it up.I love watching my nieces and nephews, but REALLY? Your going out of town and dont wanna take your kids? Sometimes they really upset me. But when we ask them for something, they say no, unless it benefits them!

    Okay. vent over. Now on to having a great day!

    This is more of a B&M, but since we are doing secret santa for David's family, everyone has been emailing out their lists so that we have an idea of what to get them.  David's youngest sibling emails us all that he would like certain vitamins and supplements for Christmas because he wants to get healthier and in shape. 

    Then my SIL's boyfriend replies to all of us and says something along the lines of "lol, you know vitamins don't cost that much right?  lol.  and they are super easy to find.  anyway, i hope you get what you want for Christmas.  lol."  That seriously pissed me off.  I felt like he was making fun of and mocking my BIL.  I feel like he put "lol" in there so many times because he wanted us to think he was joking about it, but I really get the feeling that he was being sarcastic and thought BIL was stupid for asking for such "cheap" items. 

    There was no reason for him to reply all and comment on BIL's gift choices.  The sucky thing is that I drew the boyfriend's name as my secret santa and I really want to give him a crappy present or nothing at all.

    Deb at Smitten Kitchen posted a gift guide yesterday, and I want everything on it. Unfortunately, since I'm living in someone else's house, I don't have a kitchen to keep it in. Guess I'll have to register for all these items!

    *I got a calf muscle cramp in the middle of the night and used the soreness of it to get out of having sex this morning.  It hurts and all, but all I really wanted to do was lay in bed for 10 more minutes under the warmth of my comforter.

    *I feel like I'm gaining weight because I haven't been able to run in so long.  I'm going to do anything I can to get Steve to agree to letting us unfreeze my account at the gym and add him back on so that we can start going to the gym (hopefully by this weekend).  Maybe I should have had sex with him this morning...that would have helped my cause since he feels like I've already spent too much on Christmas gifts and other stuff lately.  Hmmm....

    *I admit that I have sex with my husband to get what I want when I know if I don't he'll tell me "no".

    *Today I have the "I don't care" attitude at work.  I'm tired and grumpy and 5:30 can't come fast enough.

    *I got an e-mail from Nine West for 50% off boots and free shipping. I know I shouldn't spend any money...but I LOVE Nine West.  Love it.

    My family is stressing me out so much that I got a migraine yesterday after a conversation with my mom.

    I am SO GLAD we're going to New York for Christmas.  Two weeks from yesterday.  I cannot freaking wait to get away.

    I'm sure there are lots of reasons you're glad to hear this, but I could never be married to Steve.  Or ANY guy who is a morning sex guy.  Blech, I need my sleep.

    My FMIL and the rest of her family still haven't sent me a gift idea list, I know it sounds early but I have a wedding to go to next weekend and then it's Christmas and we are traveling, not to mention I have a million other thing to do, like oh I don't know PLAN A WEDDING ha-ha. It's not a huge deal but I would really like to get the shopping out of the way I have no idea what to get any of them, and of course FI is of NO help ;)

    Mandy, it is sooooo annoying because I'm the same way.  I need my sleep.  Even if my alarm has already gone off and I'm just laying there, I don't want him all over me.  There are so many mornings when I think to myself, "God, I miss having the bed all to myself and not waking up next to a horny little boy".

    I am worried about a party I have to go to tonight, it is with about 12 sorority sister (some i am close with, some I am not) I have sent STDs to exactly half but one of the girls (whose invited to my wedding) is getting married in June and is inviting 80 sorority sisters (I am only inviting 15).

    How did you ladies handle awkward situations with people not invited to the wedding? Just avoid the topic? Any key phrases? :)

    I'm with you Mandy.  I may be a terrible wife, but I can only think of ONE Time I've had morning sex.  Haha.  The whole bad breath and sleep thing are the reasons I don't even consider it. haha.

    Knowing Colton and I are trying to lose weight I made the world famous enchiladas yesterday...and then took some for lunch today. I have GOT to start craving healthier food.

    Our front door requires the key to get in or out; that way, someone can't break the glass and turn the deadbolt to get in.  My keys were nearest to the door last night and Bill took them this morning, leaving me locked in our house.  I will admit that my first thought was not to go looking for his keys but to call and yell.  I did exactly that.  When he asked me where I wanted to meet him, I jumped up and down like a three year old and yelled "I can't get out of this house!"  Maybe not my finest moment but I did calm down enough to go find his keys.  However, he still hadn't put my car keys on his ring so I spent another five minutes digging for them; lucky for me I remembered that he said they were someone in the kitchen five months ago when I asked. 

    I have a 25% of my entire purchase at Coach and I really want to go now with Bill's credit card.

    HAHA! Morning sex is ok, but only on the weekend when I can go back to sleep.

    I just picked up my Christmas gift from our apartment office.  I won't open it till Chris gets home, but  the sticker on the side says HP, so I know it's a new laptop. YAY!  Because of that I felt guilty cause I'm sure he spent more then I did on his gift, so I went out and bought him more stuff off his list just now.  I don't feel so guilty anymore :)

    That is the only time we have morning sex. it helps I get up earlier than him so he's still asleep when I get up and go to work <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-laughing.gif" border="0" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" />


    I feel bad I didn't put a card in the box to my person for Secret Santa. But I knew if I waited it would be another week before I sent it out. So I put a pack of Nerds in there instead LOL

    They should sell cards at gas stations. <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" />

    Just when I think I am done with DIY, we add one to the list.  I'd like to openly flame myself (or maybe it should be FI?) for taking on a DIY project of creating our cake stands if World Market does not have anything we can use.  We have no tools.
