Slow down already..

Wow, these past weeks have been a whirlwind for me. It seems like there is something going on everyday..and evening. Sure, I love being surrounded by friends and family.. and I love to be right in the middle of things but sometimes.. Don't you just want to sit back and relax? That is where I am at right now..



MOVIES
Most have you have asked, Have I seen Twilight? Um, yeah. I am almost embarrassed to admit how many times I have seen it. I have went with everyone who has asked me. I will just leave it at that! I loved it and I was not disappointed at all. I think Rob Pattinson is just about the yummiest thing ever! I really can't wait until New Moon comes out.

Over the break I also saw BOLT 3D, Four Christmas's, and Australia. I loved Bolt. It is way cute. Four Christmas's eh, not so much. It was vulgar and Dwight Yokam freaked me out a bit. I loved Australia. Bring your tissues. I think I cried 9 times during the movie. I think it is one of the best movies that I have seen all year...

Black Friday
My family and I got up at 2:45 early Friday Morning and braved the sales. I bought myself a new computer. A cheapie. But I love it! I was also able to get a lot of my Christmas shopping done.. I was excited about that..After shopping a group of us went to McDonald's for some Egg McMuffins and then I headed home for a nap! I shopped til I dropped, ate breakfast, showered, and was back in bed before 8 am.





A New Find




I love the new fragrances by Gwen Steffani. Her Harajuku Lovers line. The cute little bottles are what drew me to them but the smell is what makes me want them.. Lil' Angel and Music are my favorite. I don't like the Baby one. Have any of you guys smelled them?

Dermatology
I had a little spot that came up on my nose a few weeks ago.. Today I went to the dermatologist to get it checked out. I got two shots in my nose. Yes, that is as painful as it sounds.. Then they sliced off the spot with a razor and burned it. Let me tell you, the smell of your own flesh burning is NASTY!

I have only been to the dermatologist one time. I think I was 17. I had 4 zits and I made my mom take me because I didn't want to have a crater face. Yeah, I was a bit of a drama queen. Um, I left his office with a bottle of sea breeze. No, joke. He said, People would kill for skin like yours.. it is funny now.. I was devastated in high school. Why in the world did I have 4 zits at one time and why oh why, was my Dr. laughing at me. Ugh.

Well today when I walked into the dermatologist office I was the only one in there not over 70. The place was packed out. I was seriously looking for a Bingo caller... I was enjoying the conversations of the cute older people! It was actually nice to sit back and listen to them describe their daily activities..

I said, all of that to say.. wear sun screen everyday my friends. Everyone of these sweet elderly people were getting skin cancers removed from their faces.. I know at least 5 ladies told me to apply sunscreen daily. One even took out a tube and offered to put it on me.

Match maker

I have been playing match maker this week! It is so fun! It is fun to watch new relationships unfold. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it works out for the both of them..

SCALES

Um, I went off my diet for 3 days. When I weighed in on Monday, I thought I actually heard the scales begging me to get off..lol No, really. It was fun to splurge for a few days but I am back on track! But I did give the scales a swift kick when I stepped off of them.. it made me feel better..

Sugar Free Vanilla Iced Coffee

I have confessed my love for SF Vanilla Iced Coffee from McDonald's before.. I have also confessed how many I have consumed in one week before.. for any of you who share my obsession... I seriously wouldn't recommending looking up the nutrition information. You honestly don't want to know..

All the other coffee drinks from McDonald's are NASTY! Ugh.

Joey and Rory
I love Country Music. I love all styles of it. Bluegrass. Traditional. Contemporary. The newest duo I love are Joey and Rory! I love love love the song to say goodbye. Her voice is beautiful but the words of this song really haunt me. It is oh, so true.

To Say Goodbye
He said I’ll call you Hon when I get there,Ten minutes later he was in the air,She dropped the kids at school and headed home,Walked in and turned the front room TV on She could tell that there was something wrong,Every channel had the same thing on,Now seven years have come and gone away,But she’s still hurting like its yesterday,

‘Cuz she wants to put her arms around his neck,and look in his eyes so blue,and say Honey I don’t regret,A single day I spent with you,She wants to tell him that she loves him so,and will until the day she dies,It ain’t that she can’t let him go,She just wants to say goodbye

He sits beside her in the nursing home,Through her silver hair he runs a comb,He hangs their wedding picture on the wall,She don’t remember who he is at all,He tells her stories about the life they’ve lived,From their first kiss to their last grand kids,For seven months now she just sits and stares,But if she wakes up he’s gonna be right there,

‘Cuz he wants to put his arms around her neck,and look in her eyes so blue,and say Honey I won’t forget,a single day I spent with you,He wants to tell her that he loves her so,and will until the day he dies,it ain’t that he can’t let her go,He just wants to say goodbye no it ain’t that we can’t let them go,We just want to say goodbye

(um, I copied and pasted these.. and I am not taking the time to go back and edit. I love you friends but I am playing the lazy card...)

Check out their myspace.. maybe you can hear it there...

Wow, I have rambled on way to long.. I have some awards to write about, tags to respond to, and a book review! But I just can't do it tonight.. but I will .. I will...

Happy Wednesday Dear friends..

Wow, what an update. So glad you are back.. I feel all caught up on what's been going on. Thanks for the movie and song reviews. And I will just pass on that Mickey D coffee a may crave tomorrow.

April said...

You have been busy! i love their song Cheater Cheater!

Julie said...

so fun to hear all that is going on with you... wow 2:45, that is early!

Mrs. S. said...

My goodness, you were busy! My mom dropped off the Twilight books for me to read...so I am super excited! I saw Bolt 3D, too, and it was really cute. Is it sad to admit Disney movies bring you to tears? Haha!

Amy said...

I'm glad you are back. I missed you!:)

But I am sorry to say I can't leave a long comment, because my eyes are still full of tears from laughing so hard that I cried at your "looking for the Bingo caller" comment. That is hysterical!

One more thing though, how many times have you seen Twilight? If you tell me that, I'll tell you how many times that I saw Titanic at the theater. I lost count once it was released on DVD. *sigh*

Big Hugs!
Amy:)

He And Me + 3 said...

That was the update of all updates. Love it. I too love Mickey D's iced coffee, but give dunkin donuts a try too. They are so yummy! I was right there with you...well in a different state, shopping on Black Friday. I love it!

Rebecca Jo said...

Glad to get updated!!!

I go yearly to the dermatologist because of moles... I'm a moley, moley, mole (think Austin Powers!) - but I screwed up my skin so badly as a teen tanning - went to the tanning bed EVERY day - sometimes TWICE A DAY when I was a teenager for 3 years straight!!! Can you say wrinkles???? That's a funny story though about your dermatologist appointment when you were a teen....

georgie said...

welcome back Becky! the SSS gifts are startin to roll in

Lisa said...

Glad to see you back. You have been missed. That is pretty funny about your dermatologist appt, but I can't imagine the smell of your own flesh (YIKES). That totally freaks me out thinking about it. Sounds like you have been a busy woman!!

Mrs. Cup said...

Glad you loved Australia. I did too!! Yay for a new computer!!

Glamorous Life of a House Wife said...

Katie@ThisCrazyLife said...

Can I just say thank you?! You convinced me to go buy twilight and I drove my family crazy reading it all weekend! I so want to run out an buy the second book, but my hubby would kill me! I am asking for the box set for Christmas and crossing my fingers. He has however agreed to take me to see the movie on Sat. night. If I didn't have three kids I porbably would have been there six times already. So thank you I don't know how I ever lived without this book in my life!

Heather said...

Wow, You've been busy. I've been wandering about Bolt. Might have to take the little guy to see it. He loved Madagascar 2.

Thanks for talking about Gwen's perfume. They would be perfect for my 11 yo step-daughter.

Have a great week!

New Girl on Post said...

I love the Gwen Stefani fragrances, but unlike you I love the Baby one! That's actually the one I wear. :)

Lindsey said...

Thanks for the update, you have been busy!

Bummer to hear "Four Christmases" was vulgar, I no longer want to see it!

Megan said...

Now I feel caught up on your life. And c'mon you can't leave your readers hanging, we HAVE to know how many times you have seen Twilight!

Rachel said...

Wow...glad you are back and caught us all up to speed!! I too really like Bolt...I loved the music in it (i know, I'm cheesy)!! And I think this weekend I will finally take my son to see Twilight...he's been begging me for weeks!!

Becky Welch said...

Things have been crazy around my place and I have not stopped by in a long time - sorry!! I LOVED catching up with you. Love your tree and LOVE your talk with God!!! I won't be so long coming back!

Sweet Simplicity said...

This is quite the post! I just love shopping on Black Friday. There are always lots of laughs when I go with my family.

Kori said...

Hey Becky darling.

I sent you and email could you please get back to me as soon as you can. Thanks so much.

Also I love Joey and Rory too. Love the Overstock commercials. Your voice is amazing.

Michelle said...

Nice to see you back! Too bad about the spots on your nose. Due to growing up in sunny southern california and not wearing sunscreen (I do now and wear a cool hat) I have to go in every six months to have stuff zapped off my face. It sucks.

I've had things cut off and yes, smelling your own flesh burning isn't pleasant!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Wow. The words to that song just hit me-I am choked up. That is my parents!
I am not a shopper, so 2:45 is insane to me!!!

Hollie said...

Loved the update and you better believe that I read every bit of it! I could probably comment on every little piece of it.
I haven't tried McD's iced coffee yet.......but have been wanting to.

And a shot in the nose?! OUCH!

Thanks for the movie reviews. Now if I could only get M to the Izz-A to take me to see one of them...

Smiling Shelly said...

WOW! It does look like you've been busy. I hope everything is okay with that spot on your face.

Mom and I also went to see Australia this weekend - excellent movie!! My 'cryer' doesn't work as well as others but I do think I heard some sniffling going on around me. Also, it's a very LONG movie so if you have a small bladder, I don't advise drinking anything before or during the movie...I'm just sayin' :)

The Branches said...

Yeah Twilight! There is no shame in being obsessed with Twilight....or Robert! ha..ha.. I was embarrassed at first too, but now I am just like "I don't care!" I even went into Hot Topic to look at merchandise, which kinda scared me...but you gotta do what you gotta do to support the fan craze :)

Kim said...

I absolutely love the Joey and Rory Overstock commercials.

My skin is olive and tans oh so easily. In the early years I abused it so much, but now I always wear sunscreen, but the wrinkles are still coming!

super tweaky mel said...

I saw the Harujuku (spelling - I totally dunno!) at Sephora. They are sooo cute!

I can't believe how fast time is flying lately either - major blur. It is nearly Christmas already! Tonight will mark 4 chocolates out of the advent calendar!

Solei said...

Wow! Somebody's been a pretty busy bee! Pretty cool. Definitely good to have you back!
=0D

SondreLyn said...

I left you some blog-y love on my blog...

Missed your blogs lately! So glad to 'see' you back!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

Boy that was a newsy post!


Growing up with acne is not fun, I had it for 16 years.......nothing worked....until recently, and I'm 28.....although now I still have that crater face you were talking about.....pimple-less-ness is good enough for me!

Quiche Me, I'm Yours! said...

I thought I lived a busy life WOW and you managed to fit in some shopping!?! Even if it was 3 AM, I'm impressed!!!! Have a blessed weekend!

Life with Kaishon said...

Those good Friday sales sound awesome! Way to go! I can't believe your stores open at 3:00. I think our Kohl's was the first thing to open and it opened at 5. I didn't go. I am not as cool as you : ).

Straight to Your Hart said...

Look at all you have been doing!!

Love the words to that song...sweet and haunting..
