Finally Some Dance!

Hi!  I hope that everyone’s been enjoying their week so far.  Mine’s been pretty good.  I’m sure I’m not the only one out there that’s has a ramped up schedule due to Christmas being right around the corner!  Just last night Mom and I went out and got some shopping done.  I don’t know about you guys, but I’m feeling a little scattered with gift shopping this year.  The adults in my family started a tradition a few years ago where we pick a name out of a hat at Thanksgiving dinner and have a $100 limit on that person.  I got my Dad this year and knew right away what to get him so he is done.    My kids are at the age where they don’t want (or need) toys anymore and really, we buy them pretty much what they want throughout the year so the pickings are slim now.  That sounds so vain.  Hehe!  My hubby is another tricky one.  Humpf!  I know I’ll get there, but right now I feel a bit frantic.  Hello holidays!!!
Time for a little Q&A!  Allie tagged me to answer a few “deserted island” questions so here ya go!
1. For which reality show would you want to be a judge?
So You Think You Can Dance 2. If you could interview anyone in the world, who would you choose? Jon Bon Jovi 3. What is one piece of advice you would tell your 3rd grade self? The retaliator is ALWAYS the one that gets busted.
4. If you could have a role in any movie/TV show (already released), which would you choose? Twilight.  Hands down.
5. What is your favourite dessert (be specific!)? Tiramisu….specifically, my Mom’s.
6. If you could magically be fluent in another language, which would you choose? Japanese
7. What is one item on your holiday wish list? Make sure your family members read your answer Jillian Michaels 6Week 6 Pack
So yesterday we welcomed December! Can you believe it?  Yikes!  The end of November also saw the end of this:IMAG0005
Welcome back, smooth face! IMG_4035
YAY!  DD was practically jumping for joy.  She hated that moustache with a passion.  LOL My hubby was pretty happy to shave it off, too although I think he was impressed at how good it grew in.  Some of the guys were pretty patchy!   The team my hubby was on raised $675.00 for prostate cancer so it was all for a good cause.
In other news; DS made the newspaper!!!  The picture was taken in the last game they played in the tournament this past weekend.  Check it out:IMG_4346
LOL!!!  (He’s on his belly)  I didn’t even realize it was there so thankfully one of his classmates saw it and brought it in for him to see.  He was quite pleased with himself.  HA!  I know I go on and on about hockey so I’m excited to share some photos of DD in action at her dance class Monday night!  She dances at a closed studio so the only time I get to actually see her is at the Christmas open house and the year end recital in June.  Not sure what this “move” is called, but it looks painful!IMG_4326
OUCH!  Here’s 2 more;
I think I finally figured out how to post a video!!!  DD is in the middle-ish with a heart on her t-shirt. 
PLEASE let me know in the comments if you could view it or not.  And if you can; ENJOY!
Guess I better show a little food, eh?  Hehe!IMG_4341 IMG_4314 IMG_4330 IMG_4347 IMG_4315 IMG_4331 IMG_4336 IMG_4359 IMG_4313 IMG_4317 IMG_4321  IMG_4339 IMG_4348 IMG_4318 IMG_4349 IMG_4350
DS had 6am practice this morning so I treated myself to a grande NF caramel Brule misto:
And I bought a bag of Werthers for the office candy dish, making sure to hold a few back for myself.  :)IMG_4316
Well, me thinks that’s all I’ve got!  See ya Sunday with food item #9 and a fun giveaway!!
Bye for now!!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the dance video!! And I love that song "Club Can't Handle Me" :)

  2. LOVE the video!!!

    I want some of that chocolate cake/pie!

  3. Fun survey! Hope you get what you want for Christmas. I was having A LOT of trouble with gifts at first...but all of a sudden I'm flying through. I'm sure you'll get there soon too! Congrats to DS on making the paper! And I could view the video- DD was great! I never realized how tall she is! Lots of yummy eats. And I got a caramel Brule misto yesterday! I love that syrup

  4. Wheeww DD's quite the dancer!! She's got some moves! :D

    My brother and I were pretty fortunate as well as children and always got what we wanted throughout the year (you're right..that does sound vain..but you know!) so my mom made a rule we couldn't buy a THING after Thanksgiving. Once toys were out of the question, the time line got longer but that's how they made sure there were still some types of gifts out there. :P

  5. I would totally be in Twilight too :)

  6. oh my gosh your daughter's dance move DOES look painful! but she's so cute!

  7. Looooved the video--wow those girls can move!! I have always though dancing looks like so much fun, and such a great way to squeeze in some exercise! Tell DD she is fab! :-)

  8. my fav dessert is tiramisu too!
    congrats to DS featuring on the news! You must be so proud!!! :D
    and DD... wooo! she's talented! look those crazy moves!

  11. Cute pics of the kiddos, Krista! Congrats to DS on being in the paper and DD looks like she's learning some cool stuff at dance! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  12. Check me out, finally catching up on some blog reading! The video worked for me - just wanted to let you know. And I'm so not worried about Christmas gifts - I only have 3 people to buy for, so it's all good.
