Merry Christmas

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! I am still sick, but glad that've been able to slowly recover at home. My hubby has been great and I can't wait to see everyone! 8]

I've already cooked the sweet potato casserole and the peach cobbler so I've crossed out some of my to-do's for tomorrow. I still have the ham, chicken and dumplings, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and rolls to cook...*sigh*... but it will be worth it.

Enjoy the time with your loved ones & I hope that everyone gets at least one thing on their wish list :)

Snail Mail Surprise

 So I come home from work today and I had a surprise package... and it came just in time. I have been anxious to open presents.. yeah, yeah I am one of "those". I love getting presents as you can all see from my previous blog entry (I also love to give, but that's beside the point for this post).
So imagine how excited I was...

I opened the box and saw this. It was a cute little card.
And underneath that tissue paper....was.....
I won this awesome little dead doll from
Daph's awesome giveaway!!! She is
temporarily slumming it on my mantle until I can
find a more permanent home for her.
Boy, I love getting early presents 8]

Bewitchingyou's Bests [[for the Year]]

So if anyone reads, you know that at the end of every year, they have a page that is dedicated to the "Best of 2011". It may be about style, funny quotes, whatever floats their boat. I have decided to do the same thing, but in blog form.
Note: Just to keep each category from being too long (no one wants to read one blog entry that takes an hr to read), I am only going to choose the top five.

My Top 5 Obsessions:
  • Twilight (the release of Breaking Dawn)
  • True Blood
  • Blogging
  • Crafting (esp. this Halloween)
  • Reading
My Top 5 TV Shows:
  • True Blood
  • Dexter
  • Law and Order: SVU
  • Once Upon a Time
  • Pan Am
My Top Five Favorite Quotes:
  • "Light up the darkness" - Bob Marley
  • "I try to believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast." - Alice Kingsley
  • "Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute." - Gil Stern
  • "The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it." - Charles Swindoll
  • "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” -
    Mahatma Gandhi
