Playing Catch up on my Blog!

I am alive my fellow bloggers! I have been so busy with my live, my new love , my kids and family, that I just haven't had any time to blog! I have missed it and I have missed all of you! My kids are great, we had great holidays and I am just extremely happy that they are over now!

I am still in love with my man D and he is equally in love with me! :)

Christmas went well, we had Christmas at my place with my boys the Thursday morning before Christmas, because I had to work Friday Christmas eve morning and the boys would be at their dad's places for Christmas morning. Christmas eve evening we went to my middle sister's for our family Christmas. Everyone was on their best behavior! :) Well except for my uncle S who was ready to hurry up and get out of their to go smoke some pot that he so politely announced at dinner, and my dad who decided to tell everyone that my cooking and was better than sex in the middle of dinner. Yes my family is as normal as everybody's. After dinner I took the boys to their dads and went to D's.

Christmas morning was great we woke up to a white Christmas everything was snowed on and my man and I exchanged gifts. I got him a digital picture frame with memory card and I had borrowed (snuck) some pictures out of his picture box in his closet and uploaded all his pics of his family and daughter and him onto it, it was great! He loved it! He got me a tanzanite and diamond promise ring that is gorgeous!
I am so totally in love with him! So after our our sweet Christmas morning together with just the two of us, we headed over to pick his daughter up from her mom's. We had a little difficulty with the driving part and got snuck a time or tow on a few hills but we eventually made it south to his mom's house. It was a lovely family Christmas and everyone loves me! WOOHOO!

On Monday morning I drove to my youngest sisters and best friends house for a few days of sister talk and cooking (cause we love to cook). We aren't wine drinkers but I had stopped by a winery on my way down and pick up a bottle of raspberry white zinfandel which was so full of deliciousness! We drank the entire bottle while we cooked dinner and caught up on each others lives! Wine and chocolate creme cake! yummy!Was home in time for new years eve with my man and our kids. We had a great night! So all in all the holidays were great, but so glad they are over! Happy New Year everyone!


  1. Congrats on a great Christmas.

    I figured you were happy with life and love and that is why you weren't around. And I was right.

  2. Oh my gawd... your happiness is so contagious! Wow, I can feel it bubbling right thru the screen. So happy for you darlin!

  3. First...so glad to see you back. We missed you.

    Second-what a gorgeous ring. I love tanzanite. Congrats on the promise to promise. :-)

    Third-Happy New Year
    okay...that's all really. So glad that you are happy and doing well. Hopefully you'll be able to visit us a little more though cause I was going crazy without your love life updates. hahaha.

  4. good to see you!
    Figured you were busy with real life and love. :)

  5. Well my goodness. There you are! Been wondering how life is going for you. Sounds like it's magical! Love the ring!! Yay you!

  6. That was a lovely post girl and it is always so great to read about happy times. I could feel the love and do hope it continues for you. Have a wonderful day. :)

  7. Great to know you are alive and well and that you passed the holidays in bliss. Seems to me that you're going to have the change the name of your post as you are no longer single. Isn't that always the way though? Just when you decide that you are okay with being single....Mr. Right (or even Mr. Right Now) sashays into your life.

  8. What a wonderful update! And what an even more wonderful ring! Happy New Year and welcome back to blogland. :)

  9. This is so exciting and I have missed you. The ring is stunning. Congrats. Does a promise ring come before an engagement ring?
