Family Christmas Picture

Ok so I went to see the movie The Holiday the other night with my good friend Karin. It is totally GREAT movie. While watcing I realized that I am totally Iris. Kate Winslet playes this character named Iris who is in love with this guy who says he wants her while it is convenient for him. It was amazing to see someone else go through the same issues I have. It was so eye opening because until I came to the realization that I do the same thing I was mad at her for letting herself get walked all over. Then it hit me like a lightening bolt! I do the same thing. I find someone I am attracted to. Then I do everything possible to make them want to be with me. How this logic works in my mind I am not sure. I love when Iris suddenly realizes how Jasper is treating her and he that he will never change. I wanted to yell GO GIRL! :-)

If you have not seen this movie... DO! It is really cute!

Pretty much my favorite holiday treat is something called Kringle. It is a Danish pastry. It used to be something that my Great Grandma Kemnintz would order and mail to us. Now that she is gone we order it every year from and eat it Christmas morning before we open presents. If you have never tried it I higly reccomend it. Trust me people this blows Panera pastry out of the water! I think a big part of it is the memories for me but still it is good eats. ENJOY!

Can I just say how annoyed and frustrated I am with the United States Post Office? UGH! So this is what happened. I went on Monday of last week to check our mail. In the box was a notice that our box got to full. Because it has gotten to full they had taken our mail back to the post office. Now mind you it had only been 4 days since I had checked it. Last week was the week from hell at work so I just couldn't go. I called yesterday and asked what I needed to do to get our mail. The lady told me just come to the post office in Oviedo with my drivers license. So today I take off work, drive over there, and try to pick up my mail. The lady who comes out from behind the blue door precedes to tell me that I can't pick up my mail. It is at another location and I have to come back! What the @$%#! So now I have to take more time off work this afternoon to go back to the post office in DOWN TOWN OVIEDO to get my freaking mail! UGH!! Annoyed = me!

What constitutes a fun Thursday night in my book? Well let me just tell you...
-babysitting for 2 hours and getting paid for 3
-a peppermint mocha frapachino from Starbucks
-good conversation with a good friend (thanks Karin)
-home, pj's, bed

I was actually dreading last night and it turned out SO fun!

So I checked out the new show My Boys on TBS last night. It was really cute! I really like Kyle Howard who is the one on the top right of the pic in the red shirt. He was in a show on the former WB called Related. Anways, the show was fun and funny. I liked how akward and honest it was. Specifically when she, PJ, tried to talk in code to Bobby about them having a relationship. She is using all of these metaphors and he is taking her literally. It was hysterical! Check it out if you are up late on a Tuesday night. For us Veronica Mars watchers it works out perfectly because it comes on right after.

Over the holiday weekend I enjoyed some good

TV Christmas movies. TBS had Serindipidy on their Movie & Makeover series. I like that show because not only do you get a fun movie but they give you helpful hints during the makeover. This time they featured fun Chrismas gifts. My personal favorite was this...

Basically the idea is personalized bath stuff! Check it out at

You may be wondering what are the ingredients to a GREAT weekend at the beach? Well let me just tell you..
A beautiful condo + awesome friends + games + relaxation + the ocean (or Intercoastal Waterway) + gorgeous weather = A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!! I am so glad that we got to go. I came back feeling 100% relaxed and ready for my 3 day work week. :-)

Wednesday, November 15, 2006

I am heading off to New Smyrna Beach this weekend with some friends and I can't wait!! My Aunt has a condo there that she is letting us stay at for the weekend. It will probably be chilly but still a GREAT weekend to get away and enjoy the beauty of FL. 2 days and counting...

My new favorite thing is a place called Lets Eat! It is the best discovery I have made in a while. Basically what you do is go to this place and prepare meals for a month in their kitchen. The concept is that they provide all the ingredients, for a price, and then you package them to put in the freezer. It cost me $180 to make meals for a MONTH!! With some of them that includes lunch and dinner. I am having pork chops for lunch today. Let me just say that it TOTALLY beats fast food!! If you are interested in it check out

Yes ladies and gentlemen I VOTED! I went to Tuskawilla Presbyterian at the butt crack of dawn and took care of business. Now I am proudly wearing my sticker. The last time I voted I mailed my ballot in and therefore I didn't get the sticker. I am pretty excited to have it this time. That way people don't ask you ALL DAY LONG...Did you vote? Now they can just see! I hope all of you will too! Maybe UPC is your polling place. If it is then stop on in and say hi!

It is beautiful outside! So beautiful in fact that I have decided that even though I have to be in my office I want to enjoy this terrific weather. So I opened my window, got a cup of coffee and am blasting The Fray. Good stuff for a Tuesday afternoon at the office.


and it typical Florida fashion I am wearing long sleeves, pants and flip flops! :-)

Ok so my new favorite thing is being able to watch episodes of my favorite TV shows online! How GREAT is that?!! Let me tell you for those of us who don't have or can't afford DVR it is a wonderful thing. Last week I missed Grey's Anatomy and I was totally able to catch it the next day thanks to this... Gotta love technology!
If you are a Heroe's fan like me then just go to NBC's website and stream episodes from them.

So my beautiful blues are not so beautiful right now. I am 99.9% sure I have pink eye. I am just waiting for conformation from the doc. For some reason I get it really easily and I must say it is quite annoying. Thankfully since I have had it a few times before I know that it clears up really quickly. I am off to the doc at 11:10 a.m. I've got to get this junk cleared up so I can hold that precious nephew of mine!! :-)

I shared this recipe with my friend Cathy on her blog today. I figured it would be nice to share with the rest of you!

3 Tomatoe Spaghetti:
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound spaghetti
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato oil (from oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes)
4 cloves garlic, minced
¼ to ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes with juice
½ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
Directions:Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.Heat 2 tablespoons tomato oil in a large saucepan over mediumheat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add canned tomatoes with juice and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer gently over medium, stirring occasionally and breaking up canned tomatoes until thick, 15 minutes. Add cherry tomatoes; simmer until soft, 10 minutes.Drain spaghetti, reserving 1 cup pasta water; return pasta to pot. Add tomato mixture; season with salt and pepper. Toss, adding pasta water as desired. Serve immediately.

I am going to try it out tonight on my adopted college student. I will let you know how it goes.

My new favorit show is Veronica Mars. My roomie and her sis got me hooked. If you were to ask me to describe it I would say it is a modern day Nancy Drew type story with a very edgy plotline. It has just entered the third season with Veronica at college. I am LOVING it already. If you know me at all then you know that I have a thing for "crime shows" as my roomie lovingly refers to them. I believe that this would qualify as that. Pretty much every episode there is some sort of crime solved. It could be major like catching a murderer or finding a stolen dog. Check it out Tuesday nights on the CW.

Being an aunt is pretty much THE best part of my life right now. On Sunday I told Allison and Zach that it was like and early Christmas present. This little boy has turned my heart inside out. I love him SO much. All he has to do is look at me with those beautiful blues and I melt. I think of how much I love Tristan and then I think of how God loves me. I know that God's love for me pales in comparison to my love for Tristan. It is difficult to imagine though.

Tristan Alexander Darnell. He weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz and is 20 inches long. Allison was in labor for about 7 hours. My mom, who was in the room with her, said she was a total champ! Last night I stayed at the hospital with Allison and Tristan so that Zach could go home and sleep. It was great. I was so glad to be able to help her and also I just love any time I can get with my nephew. He is the cutest thing EVER!!! I am so glad he is finally here. They get to come home from the hospital today so that is nice.

I am working very hard at not getting sick. I don't want to be sick. I have been taking airborne and also some left over antibiotics from last time I was at the doctor. For all of you who are cringing at the thought of me using an old prescription it is still good! I checked the date!! Anyways, I am not sure how well all of this stuff is working. My nephew is supposed to be born at any time. I don't want to be sick when he arrives. You really can't be around an infant when you are sick. UGH!! I need to get better.

I can't even tell you what it means to have a good roomie. Betsy moved in 1 year ago yesterday. It has been the best time having her live in my house. I have had some HORRIBLE roommate experiences. This, I would have to say, has been the best. Our personalities are so similar. We like a lot of the same things. We enjoy spending time together. She likes my friends and I like hers. We laugh and cry together. When I got in my car accident she came down and stood with me while I was being harassed by the person who hit me. Ok so I could go on and on... Let me just say that she is awesome and I love her! I don't know what I will do when Mike takes her away from me.

So here is the deal... I have had a livejournal for like EVER! Now most of my friends have blogs. I am switching because I like the format more. It is easier to control. So here I go...
