What a looser!
Friday my company had our Christmas Party.... Lunch at the Riverwalk Cafe in The Gaylord Texan and then we went to ICE.
ICE is a large display of hand carved Ice sculptures. They fly in Chinese ice artists and you walk through (yes literally through) the display at something like 30 below! They give you these cute blue jackets to wear so you don't freeze your tooshie off.
Yes, you get to slide down the ramps right below the reindeer!!!

Yes, it is rated R... I watched it on TV so it was edited.
This is a MUST WATCH movie for ALL single women.
How many times have you been in a relationship where you got nothing from it?
If I could only count them all.
Ray Porter (Steve Martin) is a man you can't help but to love.
He thinks he has made himself "clear" as to the state of their relationship... you know the whole
HE thinks: "she is clear that I want nothing more"
while SHE thinks: "wow, he does so and so ... he must really love me"
Then there is Jeremy (Jason Schwartzman) who is a fumbling, goofy, dorky, weirdo that she should have been scared of!
He takes a simple phrase that she said .... "Just do it" and
HE DOES IT!
Only to come back and sweep her off of her feet after going on the road with a band and reading/listening to books on tape such as the below.
If we only spoke the same language!
A few suggestions for your late night reading:

Q#1: Do you think I should cover my star with black and white damask paper? (from Meg)
A: I dont remember how big yours is.... Just go easy on the black and white balance! :)
Q#2: How do you make the star? (from Meg AND Sarah)
A: Well they are metal stars ( I wanted to do them wood but the only ones available had to be ordered on line and that would take to much time). I didn't make them but told the girl how to do it. Make a template with blank paper of the sides of the star you want to cover. She basically combined two sides of the star in the same template. I would have done each flat surface a different template/paper. Use Modpodge to glue it on. If you want it slick/shiny cover the surface with the Modgepodge also. She didn't cover the surface on this sample but sanded a tiny bit and then inked it. It looks cute just sanded also.
It is Scrapbook paper we covered it with.
Q#3: Home sign how?
A: It's a $3.00 frame from Wal-Mart that simply has the Vinyl Lettering rubbed on. The glass is hot glued on so it wont fall out cause you dont put the back on it. You drill holes through the frame to run the ribbon through. Sarah, I will make you one. :)
Hugs and Kisses

I'm still working on getting the metal to adhere to the wood.
I also have another one I am doing for my Craft Studio...
and has the words
on it. I can't wait until it is done. Maybe even tonight... if so I will post a picture!
The sisters in the ward get the choice of the word
(as shown in above picture)
written in a cute hand writing font.
I think I will make this one for myself and paint it
(actual turq. color is much deeper in real life)
like the cabinet in my Studio.

She is my own personal "hacker" and decided to be funny and load my music player with The Carpenters! It was fun for about an hour... maybe less! Well we got that fixed. Music selection suggestions are welcome. I personally like Cold Play and The Killers.... maybe she will update my music again!
I'm a Girl!
The picture below is for better color so just ignore the shine on Justin's face!

Today I purchased 3 cases of Water. :) I'm doing it! My Food Storage that is.... 3 months worth at a minimum! No photos as it's late and my coworker didn't return my camera cord today. Oh well, it's just water! You know what it looks like.

The box sat at the Apartment office for a while because either the FedEX man does not like me or the Texas wind blew away my little sticky note!
Either way I got it today!
6 Cans of Food (Oats, Pinto Beans, Wheat...possibly something else I can't remember)
Lids (for opened cans)
Water (or just the bottle for it..must store more than tiny bottle!)
Money! (ha!... Just the bottle to save it in)
Pamphlets, Basic Recipes
P.S. I am utilizing FreeCycle and passing on things I don't need
so I can make some room for
