Christmas with the Foley's

I was determined to come up with some sort of Foley Christmas tradition and we figured 
it out last night. We did Christmas early at our house, we put on pj's, had breakfast for dinner, watched Elf and opened the presents under our tree (which I felt bad because I only got Tyler two things and he went nuts and got a ton of stuff for me/the house, but he did wrap a few things for him saying they were from me haha). It was a lot of fun and something that we'll continue to do for years to come.

Of course I left my camera at home so I can't upload the 3 pictures I took last night but I did take one on my phone..... I got a puppy!!!!

No not a real one though haha. As I was opening the bag Tyler goes "now you've been begging for one of these for a while now so I figured I'd give in"
This little buddle of joy is our new pet haha. He doesn't have a name yet but he is going to live in my car with my cat and Pinky the flamingo. 
I also am now the proud owner of the Twlight card game, a zebra snuggie AND a SHAKE WEIGHT!! 

As you can tell Tyler is quite the prankster when it comes to stuff like this. We agreed to not do big gifts for each other this year (which is why I only got him two books, then I get home last night and there is a million things under our tree), but he went all out and got me all the random stuff I keep talking about wanting for the hell of it. 

Bah, 9 more hours of work then I have my three day holiday weekend. We're heading to Virginia tomorrow morning then Christmas with my family on Sunday. Should be a fun weekend, I'm ready for good food and family time.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Our home Part 1

I decided to start a "series" about our home,
Right now the Hubby and I are living in a cute little 3 bedroom house out in the country.
This was taken last November before Hubby moved in back in February.

Here is our house lit up for Christmas this year (and my huge pink and green wreath that the inlaws got me). 
Right now I only have pictures of one room that's really done, I need to take more pictures and will get that done soon.


This is Tyler's office before and after, we painted and he put up chair railing, and decorated. I love it, its so cozy and full of books (which you can't really see from this picture but he has 3 bookshelves packed full).

Next time I update I'll do the master bedroom and bath. They're GREAT :)

Everyone's doing it

I figured I'd join the bandwagon and make a Christmas wish list!
I'm at work bored and stressing over everything on my to do list for tomorrow and whats the best way 
to get my mind off of it? DREAM LIST!!!!

I want one of these little nuggets

The puppy not the coke, haha I want a little toy poodle soooo bad. I have puppy fever like hardcore.

I'd really enjoy one of these under my pink tree



That way I could take good pictures of my tree, and family, and new puppy!

A new tv would be fabulous!


However if we got a new tv we would also need a mounting kit, and oh yeah... cable!

These would be perfect for a new years party


Actually I would wear these with everything, pj's, jeans, gym clothes... etc... etc

And last but not least, I've wanted these for the TC forever



To be honest I'm not sure why I haven't just bought them for myself. I might have to do that and slip them under the tree signed "Love, Santa". None will be the wiser, I can totally act surprised, it would be a Christmas miracle!


So in conclusion I don't think my list is tooooo crazy. Tyler however thinks otherwise. I'm still crossing my fingers that a little ball of fur will be in my stocking when I wake up next Sunday..... I'm not holding my breath on that one though.

Introductions

I figured I'd do a whose who of my blog, aka who will and has been mentioned on my little corner of the world wide web (do people even call it that anymore?)
So we'll start with ME!
I'm 24, was born in Ohio, lived in Charlotte NC my entire life, in fact unlike most people I know I lived in the same bedroom from the day I came home from Ohio (I was adopted) till the day I got married. Other then these past 3 months of marriage the longest I had ever been away from home was 3 weeks on a trip to Canada (I cried alot the first week, I haven't cried at all since I got married no worries haha, I do miss my hot pink bedroom though).  I'm clumsy, a little spastic, love the color pink, slightly add, and severely anxious. And I'm married to the man of my dreams Tyler......

He is from a small town in Virginia but was lucky enough to move to Charlotte for college (he graduated from Queens University) where he stayed and met me in the fall of 2009! He can't sit still, loves to cook (yum), books are his favorite, is the biggest UNC fans EVER, and loves me :)

This is my BFF Ashleigh, before I got hitched we had the same last name but we're not related! She is my taller, blonder twin. She is getting married in April and I couldn't be more excited!


This is my other best friend, aka my big sister Lisa. We're basically opposites but it totally works. We're 10 years apart and haven't always gotten along but the older we get the closer we get which works for me!
These are my sweet nieces Clara and Ella, the little one is bigger now and so is the bigger one. Clara is 2 and Ella is 6. They are both absolutely nuts and I love it. Oh and they're pretty cute too, I don't want them to ever grow up and I tell them that all the time, however they aren't listening at all. In fact I told Ella this yesterday and she just stared at me then ran off haha.

These adorable people are my parents. They have helped shaped me into who I am today, I was totally spoiled by my dad growing up, and mom spent countless hours driving me from dance to piano to gymnastics etc. I love them both so much and are so lucky to have been specially picked to be lucky enough to be their daughter <3

There are a lot more amazing/beautiful people in my life and I could go on forever but to be honest my battery is dying on my computer and I totally spaced and left my charger at home... imagine that!

Anyways :) WELCOME TO MY LIFE!!!!

Yes I know I just blogged but a serious issue came to mind that needs to be discussed...... Prologue's.... Hubby and I had this discussion last night while we were cuddled in bed w our books (yes we are already an old married couple that read in bed). So anyways I open my book and start dying laughing for no reason (I was exhausted so being silly just happens). When Tyler asked why I was laughing so hard I turned and asked him if I have to read the prologue? "well I mean that's up to you I guess?"
Ok so here is my thought, if the author really wanted you to read it why not just make it chapter one?? They went to the trouble to write it and half the readers aren't going to read it. No that's not a factual statistic, I'm just guessing here.
"this is a serious question Tyler! It's 7 whole pages which is like 10 minuets of my time and I need to know if I should waste my time or not? If I skip it will I be totally confused throughout the whole book or will I read it and then halfway through the book realize it was a waste of time!? This is serious stuff!!!"
Poor hubby didn't know what to say and sat there in silence, I think waiting for me to just shut up so he could get back to his book.
Well this ended by me throwing the book on the floor yelling "I give up!!" and passing out a few minuets later.
I guess the point of this is to ask.... Prologue, read it or skip it?

Now I'm going to attempt to start this book for real even though the inner debate over the first 7 pages still rages on. Damnit

Oh and in case you're wondering I'm reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Woke up late....

So this is what waking up late for work looks like.... Totally turned my alarm off this am and hubby left early for work so he wasn't there to shove me out of bed. Which translates into the hairs being shoved into a weird pony and having to stop for an energy drink instead of my homemade latte :(

Obviously she has no class......

So I'm pretty excited. I'm updating on my new iPad 2!!!! Heck yeah! I won it at our annual Christmas party at work. I'm still figuring it out but I'm getting the hang of it. Speaking of our Christmas party on of the rudest girls I've ever met was there. Her boyfriend works with me and I'd never met her before and after last night I hope I never encounter her again. I'm not going to go into detail but Tyler told me after we left if I had been acting the way she was he would've drug me out of there in a hurry. She was just being obnoxious for no reason, cursing and bitching about everything.

I'm not going to go into detail about what all she was saying but her is a taste of our conversation,
Me: so what hospital do you work at?
Her: CMC
Me: cool, what part are you in?
Her: the OR
Me: oh ok, so what do you do?
Her: surgery.......
(Tyler said the look on my face when she said that was priceless. I wish I had responded better like by saying "omg really? I never would've guessed that!" or "well there are a lot of people in an or so are you a surgeon? Are you a nurse.... Etc?" but I was in shock from her ridiculous answer I couldn't think straight)
Me: we'll I just know a lot of girls that work there that's why I asked.
Her: we'll if they're still in school I wouldn't know them. (she had been talking about taking an exam today so obviously she is still in school?!)
Me: nope they're all nurses, they graduated over a year ago.....

And scene, I spent the rest of the night trying my best to not let my margarita take over and swing at her. I was proud for keeping my composure. Anyways so moral of the story.... Don't be a bitch when you go to your boyfriends company party....

Gonna get fit ya'll

Hubs and I have made a joint decision to not do traditional Christmas gifts (the whole trying to figure out what the other one wants, then guessing, and stressing out, blah blah) and we're getting two things we both have been wanting.

Dont get too excited people.....

I'm getting the P.I.N.K method videos and Tyler is getting P90x. And we're both pretty freakin excited.

Yes it sounds really lame that we are excited about work out programs but its something we both have wanted for a while now and we figured why not do it now? We have gym memberships but living in the middle of nowhere is killing that dream. Tyler will go every once in a while if he gets off work early but if I went to the gym I'd either have to leave our house at like 6:30-7am every day and not get home till 9 after work or go when I got off then not get home till 11. Neither of those are good options in my book. I'd rather work out in my living room with my husband haha so at least we can spend some time together.

So add keeping track of our progress once we get our programs to the list of the *Things to do involving my blog* list.

Wish us luck!!!!

Frustrated

I spent quite a while yesterday searching and "following" blogs and I sign on today to find NONE of them saved on my dashboard...... Not even gonna lie, I'm not a happy camper. I don't quite understand why it didn't save any of them? I'll never be good at this internet stuff I swear.

In other news today at work was ridiculous, not one customer that came in was looking for a mattress (I work at a mattress store btw). One lady came in asking if we sold area rugs, a couple came in looking for a headboard, and another guy came in looking for a side board for his bed because his broke? How random of a day is that!?

Wifewise I am sick with puppy fever, like BAD. Then to make it worse two of the owners of the company I work for have cockerspaniel's (they're sisters, the puppies, not the owners) that are just over a year old and then today at the meeting they had two 6 week old puppies with them!! Oh my goodness I about died of cuteness overload. Tyler still won't let me get a dog which I understand because we both work crazy hours and puppies are expensive. But I still bring up the puppy issue at least once a day. At least I don't want a baby yet!

Also I've decided I'm going to read more. I just started a book today called Prep. I've read it before but it's been a few years so I figured why not read it again? I figure I'll go through all the books on my shelf, there are some I still haven't even cracked the spine of yet. Tyler and I also have started reading in bed, it's silly and he says it's like we're an old couple already but I think it's sweet. We agreed to not put a tv in our bedroom and we can only sit on our couch and watch our 3 channels for so long before it just gets boring (and uncomfortable! If you've seen our couch you'd understand. New furniture is on the long list of "needs/wants" for our house), so I figure I'll be able to get quite a few books knocked out in the next few months. I'll keep you updated on what I'm reading!

I'd like to apologize too for how boring these posts all look with no pictures. Like I've said a million times we don't have internet at home. I'm lucky enough to have it at work now but I don't want to put pictures on the work computers. I'll break down though and get a zip drive or whatever its called so I can transfer pictures on to it then upload them onto my blog so it will be more interesting, maybe :)

Alright it's closing time and I'm ready to get home to my hubby!!!!

Clouds = Slow day

I'm at work as I write this and let me just tell you how exciting my day has been.... I've seen one person so far and she was this older lady who had just had lunch and her friend was talking about organic latex beds so she stopped in to see if we had those... "No ma'am but they are made with a soy base, maybe thats what your friend was talking about?" "No I don't think thats it, you see she is from California and everything there is organic, the east coast just hasnt caught on."
Needless to say she didn't buy a mattress haha.

So I've spent my day watching movies, clipping coupons (that will most likely never get used), and searching blogs.

The movies I watched to day are Water for Elephants (AMAZEBALLS!), The Help (FANTASTIC), What's Your Number (didn't really pay attention to be honest), and I just started Dear John but I've heard its wonderful and I'll probably cry, and seeing that I'm PMS'ing like a crazy person I'll probably cry during the movie and then again when I get home to my poor husband who will have to listen to me try and reenact the movie to explain the red eyes haha.

I can tell you this, I'm 5 minuets in and I'm already lusting..... after her long hair!!!! Mine needs to be at my waist asap, k thanks.
