Week 43

Yep, two lists in one day.  

My decluttering list:

1. My closet.  I have too much stuff that I never wear.  I really should just give it all away, but I keep rationalizing that I will wear it {or fit into it} sometime soon.  

2. Book shelves in our room.  Just SO. MUCH. CRAP!

3. All of the wedding presents that we haven't been able to unpack and use yet.  Please let me find a home to put them in! 

4. The pantry.  It's the M-I-L's really, but it is too crazy.  I just want to put everything in it's place.  

5. The drawers at work.  There is no organization from drawer to drawer.  It bugs.  But it wouldn't be appreciated so it stays at the bottom of the list. 

Week 42

Things I have learned so far in 2012:

1. I suck at resolutions.  I always have the best intentions.  Bah!

2. House Hunters is not as great as I thought.  They are already in escrow on one of the houses and the other two are just to make you think they are picking. {Watch it can tell.} Lame!

3. I love New Girl.  It is too funny.  My good pal, Andrea, got me into it and Zooey Dechanel reminds me of her so much throughout the show.  

4. We own WAY too many movies.  We don't have enough room for them any more.  

5. My sister-in-law thinks it's okay to make us get rid of our cats so her kid can spend all day at our house.  He has been fine for years and she isn't even willing to talk to me about it.  I'm annoyed.

6. Mosquitoes love me.  And I mean LOVE me!  It is freaking annoying.  My bites are swelling up to the size of a fun sized candy bar.  Random size reference, I know, but whatever. 

7. Kurt's friends have a great influence on him.  I have been telling him to read the Hunger Games forever.  Then one day, his friend Elliot suggested he read it....he started that day, and finished the next...

Yep, I'm a slacker.  We went to Disneyland the first of February and I haven't blogged about it yet.  It's because I wanted to post pictures and they were all on my phone.  I haven't plugged my phone into the computer in a long, long time.  

Well, today is the day my friends! 

We stayed at the Paradise Pier Hotel and it was so great!  I have never stayed at a Disney hotel before, and I was a little skeptical, but it really worked out so well!  I loved that we just had a short walk to get to Downtown Disney, or we could go through the Grand Californian and head straight into California Adventure.  

This is the view from our hotel room!

We proved that it really is tough to be a bug.

 Kurt didn't want to go on a ride where you do all of the work, but I talked him into it and we had a great time.

Toy Story Midway Mania was one of our favorites.  We rode it 3 times and I won twice.  Yeah!

Yeah, we are silly.

We didn't get to see the fireworks because of wind issues. We did get to see World of Color twice though and we LOVED it.  It was definitely our favorite part!  We would highly recommend it to any and everyone.

I have a ton more pictures, but it looks like this will be it for now.  

P.S. I want to go back already!

List 39

I have been such a blog slacker lately.  I don't have a reason.  I'm just lazy.  I have plenty of time.  I just am neglectful.  I'm sorry blog world.  

This week's list is about songs that I have memories along with them.  This list is super easy because I have many, many, many memories associated with music.  Here are a few:

Sin Wagon - Dixie Chicks
Andrea and I used to listen to the Dixie Chicks all the time and I have very specific memories of slumber parties with the two of us standing on her bed and singing, "I'LL FLY AWAAAAAAY....on a SIN WAGON!"  I definitely didn't know what the song meant, though. 

Down On The Corner - Creedence Clearwater Revival 
Creedence is the music of my childhood.  My mom's parents used to listen to it ALL THE TIME!  Hearing that song takes me right back to being 6 years old, eating fresh grapes and swinging on the swings while the adults sat on the porch with the radio blasting. 

I'm Going Slightly Mad - Queen
Haha! This one is 100% the drive home from California in the middle of the night.  It was me, Molly, Natalie and Andrea on our road trip after graduation.  We had already had so much car trouble, and been stuck for hours in a sobriety check point.  We just wanted to make it back to Vegas and were on the outskirts of the city.  Molly was LITERALLY going slightly mad. 

Here In Your Bedroom - Goldfinger 
Peter was the first one of us to get his drivers license and he spent so much time driving us all around.  Every time I hear this song, I think about hanging out in the Winegar's parking lot and the over powering smell of his cologne.  What a lucky guy, hanging out with all of those cute girls all the time.   

If You Want To Be Happy - Jimmy Soul
This song is so fun and Kurt and I used to listen to it ALL THE TIME!  He would always joke around that he was going to be in trouble because the song says to never make a pretty woman your wife if you want to be happy.  This song makes me think of summer and motorcycle rides and washing the car together.    

Feels Like Home - Chantal Kreviazuk
I had to throw this one in, even though it is cheesy.  This is the song that I walked down the aisle to in our wedding.  I know that it has only been a year and a half, but I can see it in my mind like it was yesterday.  He was SO nervous!  He had hives all over his hands and he was swelling up.  His best man had to remind him to breathe.  He took a breath and looked up, and all of the nervousness went away.  Mine did too.  I love that man.
