why hello monday...




... again, you came too soon. but i'll forgive you because you brought my lovely hubby back to me in one piece with extra cuddles and kisses in tow. and for that you get smiles and snazzy glasses as your reward. your welcome. what else brought on this happy face was all of you and seeing these new followers just over the weekend. hello, my friends call me TJ. and since i consider you all my friends too, so can you! highlights from this weekend? hm, let's see. mr. taylor coming home from his business trip in new york, sleeping in (as per usual for this here unemployed bum), catching up with some gossip (Gossip Girl that is), late-night runs to the grocery store for some much needed ice cream (which may or may not have been payed for in change), long phone calls with friends back home, and family fun-filled dinners.

moving along....

well, it's official. although the sun has been making its lasting impression, the leaves are dropping like flies and turning to that yucky brown color. do you know what this means? WINTER SEASON. i know it's a little bit early but i can't help it. thanksgiving and christmas are by far my favorite holidays. in fact, just yesterday i saw my very first christmas commercial of the season. and come the macy's thanksgiving day parade, i'll be bringing out and watching every christmas movie and music known to man. sorry to all you halloween lovers out there, but your time is quickly coming to an end, and i couldn't be happier.
who's with me?

  1. I am quite ready for the winter, because in Florida, winter means fall! And I love the fall!

    Glad your hubby is back home. I hear ya, I hate when mine is away for business.

  5. Ugh. I know what you mean about finally getting your husband back! Mine used to be a traveling salesman, and that was no. fun. My life basically consisted of what your weekend did. Not bad, but if I didn't have friends and school to keep me busy, I would have died! Glad you finally have your man back! Enjoy your time together!

  6. I love that you watch gossip girl. I got sick about 2yrs ago and was in bed for a few days in a row-good thing my roommate and all of the seasons! I caught up and now I watch every week! (well at least when I can)

  10. I got this catalog in the mail like a month ago. My kids won't let go of it and keep choosing things out of the same catalog for Santa to bring them. It's been Christmas talking since then. Don't know whether I should cry or laugh!
