random thoughts for the day…….
:: one ::
I came home from work yesterday and stared at the computer for at least two hours trying to get Christmas shopping for family members done, and accomplished zilch. I had finally narrowed gifts down and my husband was like “ummm wait I don’t know about that”. So Cyber Monday was a huge fail in this household.
I did pick up a Play All Day Elmo that says 150 phrases and responds to you and plays games
and is probably a government run robot with a camera how are toys capable of this stuff for my nephew (mom, I hope you or someone else didn’t already buy him this because its on its way to your house :D) and Kip and I are very excited about seeing Elmo’s capabilities.
It’s come a long way since regular old ‘Tickle Me Elmo’.

Big night for my-boyfriend-andy-cohen and BRAVO! HUGE!
we begin with :
Below Deck Reunion Part II
where rocky says her and eddie slept together multiple times since wrapping the show!
and rocky accuses kate of drinking!
the madness!!! I can’t wait 🙂
and yes I use this gif every time but its my-boyfriend-andy-cohen and I love it!
followed by Real Housewives of BEVERLY HILLS!
arguably the BEST of all of the franchises.
it appears brandy and kim aren’t full housewives this season,
which is a start because I have had ENOUGH of them and their POINTING FINGERS.
are you enjoying my pointy fingers gifs as much as I am?
just one more….
ok sorry I’m not sorry; now I’m done…..
the two of them were seriously THE WORST and every time I saw their damn index finger coming at me I was like
but then again….. everyone loves a bravo train wreck …..
so hopefully we get enough of them but not too much,
because I really can’t handle Brandis sheeyite. at. all.
and I’m excited to see who the 2 new blonde additions are
I seriously will be thinking about this premiere the entire day at work, thinking
I just hope we get another look at Yolanda’s fridge.
and THEN Girlfriends Guide to Divorce
love it. but also makes me wish Odd Mom Out was already back on…..
:: three ::
the premiere of TOP CHEF!!!
I love me some Tom Collichio.
:: four ::
Minted has possibly the most heartfelt, sweetest gift to give:
a custom house letterpress portrait.
This would be a perfect gift for newlyweds, first time homeowners,
or for parents you could do an image of their longtime family home or a beach or lake house.

I made the White Cheddar Cheese and Sage Ball for Thanksgiving, and while mine was not as perfect with the Pomegranate Seeds, it was deeeee-licious.
I had never used fresh sage leaves before, and I thought there was no way they would “crisp” up when I fried them in butter for two minutes, but they did and it made the whole house smell AMAZING.
and the fried sage butter gets added to the cheese ball too ….. it’s like a classier paula dean dream ball.
I highly recommend it for your Christmas and Holiday parties!
I also made my crack cake for dessert,
because nothing says Holidays like CRACK CAKE!
