Excuse me for this random post. But a blog is like journal and I'm simply just writing whats on my mind.

Even though last night was full of tornado warnings (can't believe this is January) it brought in some pretty night skies for this evening. Nashville, you are sure pretty when your not brewing up some crazy storms!!!!

Tim preformed on Channel 4 yesterday with our friend Kinsey Rose! I will post the link below so you can check out how amazing they both did!!!
P.S. I love Tim's face in this picture. It's like he is saying "yeah, I'm badass with my guitar"

I have to say, Tim has officially taken over my brain! Isn't that how it goes though when you have been with someone for a long time, you start to become one?!
Well anywhooo, He has me checking the ingredients in all the food I buy at the store, and watching what I eat, not to mention working out! Yes, 3 years of saying he would NEVER break my bad habits for chips and coke and getting me off my couch to take a jog for fun, are over! He officially did it AND I have to say it's not so bad! I actually have more energy and feel good. Now that the caffein headaches have started to disappear.

If you want it to feel like spring just head to the mall! All the stores are filled with color and spring lines! Which I have to admit I love right now! I'm already over winter and it really hasn't even gotten started. boo.
One thing I could pass on when it comes to spring however is the smells.. Bath and Body works have some of the best candles but their spring line is margarita and daiquiri scents. I don't know about you but I'm pretty sure the last thing I want my house smelling like is alcohol. Me and Tim are more into the sweet smells like vanilla, and cookies, and cupcakes and sadly they had none of the smells in their new spring line. We did find it in their aromatherapy line (think that's what they call it) we picked up the Stress free candle that has a bit of a vanilla scent to but it's still nothing like their fall and Christmas line. Looks like next year I will be stocking up on some candles to last me through the year!
Hoping this winter flies by and warm weather comes soon! Just no tornados please!!!!!!!!!!

With winter weather a brewing outside, I have come to love the inside of my home even more! Something about winter always makes me appreciate my home and the little nooks and decor in it....
Like these dried roses hanging in my kitchen. They were from my grandmothers funeral but I have decided to keep them there because they remind me of her every time I'm cooking.
Also, in the kitchen my little corner of sugar and flour and my sweet tea jar (hold my sweet tea packets) it's probably the most used spot in my kitchen and I love it! Not to mention the little lamp that brings such a warm glow in there.
In my living room I have this spot with my favorite Tiffany's lamp that I use EVERY night! with some of my coffee table books, antique camera, and my cinnamon roll candle. Along with my first piece of art I have ever bought myself. I got back in Savannah over the summer and it a treasure piece to me.
In my office, I have a book case full of all my children's books from when I was younger. Along side my Jim Shore, Snow White I got for Christmas (Snow White was a big theme for my Christmas presents this year).
By my bedside (even thought I hate my side tables, one day I will buy better ones) lays a pretty candle holder and a gorgeous gothic victorian style frame (which you can't really tell) with a list of my New Years Resolutions, that way morning and night I can make sure I'm following through with them.
While making lunch we got creative (ok, not really.. more like creative on finding recipes that are not ours) We made grilled cheese sandwiches with your choice of cheese (I used provolone) with a drizzle of honey and a pinch of salt put into a buttered pan and toasted on both sides till golden brown. It actually wasn't bad. A different cheese might have made it stand out more and the fact that I am not huge fan of honey probably was one of the reasons it didn't win me over totally but to some of you it might be the perfect little lunch, so I'm sharing it with you! Happy Sandwich making!!!!!

Ok, so the picture above doesn't really appear to be grey skies but trust me the pretty skies are departing and the ugly ones are coming in. Which leaves us all cuddled up in our house with the lights off and candles lit. Not that i'm complaining, since the candles make our house smell all nice and dessert like.
On a really, really exciting note.. my mom and dad bought Tim these awesome Beatles cups for Christmas which lead to him saying "Hey, why don't we go ahead and throw away all those plastic cups we have" SAY WHAT?!!! I have been trying to get those ugly bachelor pad plastic cups out of the house since I moved in almost 3 years ago. I have even bought nice glass one but no... it was not until the Beatle cups entered the house till we could rid the cabinet of those plastic things. Should bought Beatles cups long time ago!! So, thanks Mom and Dad!!!!!

While cuddling on the couch with Encore yesterday and watching Tim play mario cart (gosh, I really hope I don't regret buying him a wii for Christmas) we took a couple of pictures together and I noticed something... Encore has a HUGE nose! Ha Ha. Well I guess not just Encore, dobermans in general but it was funny once we noticed it in these pictures. Now, Tim has been walking around calling Encore Pinocchio, which I find ironic since I have been calling Tim Pinocchio for years (not because he lies or has a big nose but because he looks like a little boy Pinocchio) Big noses or boyish looks I gotta love both my Pinocchio boys Ha. Ha.

Feeling pretty good this morning! Like most people this year I made one of my resolutions to be more active (DOES NOT MEAN LOSE WEIGHT) but I do however want more energy and to feel good thru out the day! So, me and Tim have cleaned out our house and bought some yummy healthy stuff and we have been out walking everyday with Encore but today I did a little more then walking, I actually Jogged! YAY ME!!!!! and YAY ENCORE IS TIRED NOW!!!! HAHA, that dog has SO much energy it isn't even funny! ANY who, I was so proud of myself that I let myself eat a leftover red lobster cheesy biscuit (or 2, but who is counting, not me) and it was delicious!
Now off to do some chores that never seem to end! On the list today... Laundry, vacuum, clean cat room, and make some sweet tea that we can't ever seem to keep stocked in our house!!!
Hope you beauties have an amazing Sunday!!!
Last week, Tim's parents came in to stay with us. (yes, another late post) It was so wonderful having them in town. Tim's mom cooked us dinner and breakfast everyday, we played wii bowling (which I won the first time ever playing, Tim wasn't happy about it ha ha) and we played UNO. But the best part was probably seeing Tim's dad get excited about the train outside the Parthenon. He was excited about it and HAD to get his picture with it, which I was happy to do for him! I seriously can't wait for them both to come back. They were so fun to have in town.
In case you have not noticed, I have been taking a lot of pictures like this lately! Back around september Tim bought me and Itouch for my birthday and if you know me you know I have no idea what to do with something like that. At first I thought it was just like any other Ipod but come to find out...its NOT! He told me he was just like the Iphone but without the phone part and that I could still gets apps and things like that. After he told me that I instantly went to download the instragram app that I see everyone use and I can't tell you enough how in love I am with it! Don't get me wrong I love my nice camera I have too but sometimes it's just to bulky and heavy to carry around all the time so it's nice to have a small camera in hand that does awesome effects!

Before Christmas (yes, this is so last year, ha) Tim and I got to enjoy a hockey game...
right up front almost! It was so cool and you know what was even cooler (other then the ice)
Tim got to perform at the game! Sometimes his job comes with some great perks :)
