ho ho ho!

merry christmas everyone! i am too busy playing my new mariokart game on my nintendo ds.... that i got last year, because i asked for a puppy and my mom said no way so she got me nintendogs and a nintendo ds. she never thought i would use it. boy did i prove her wrong... my nintendogs may have gotten fleas and been malnourished, for the most part, but boy did i love them. mariokart rocks by the way. thanks mom! i just took first place in the mushroom cup! yes!

i also got a lite-brite and some of those binoculars with the pictures in them from my friend lee. so cool. hmmm... wait a minute? why do i keep getting all these little kid gifts? oh, because they are awesome. that is why. yes, i asked for mariokart and i told my friend lee that i wanted kid gifts because one time sean and i were watching TV and this commercial came on with this really cool light up ball shaped thing that rolls around. sean said, "that is so stupid." at the same time i was saying, "I MUST HAVE THAT." so then i was talking with my sister and lee about it and we decided that little kid toys are awesome and we wanted them for christmas. i don't care what sean thinks. he is just jealous. the lite-brite is a flat screen. yep. welcome to 2009. i never had one as a kid so i am really excited about it.

this christmas break could not have come sooner. i had to go into work yesterday and managed to have my shirt on inside out (again) and download "one of the worst viruses" onto my computer that my co-worker had ever seen. by doing nothing. awesome. and this was all by 9 am. oh well, he fixed it and then told me i should probably go home so i did.

my sister joked around that when i have kids we are going to have to make them a little chart to show them the proper way to put on clothing. sean said "no, we just need to make one for chloe."
haha very funny. not. we carpool to work everyday? why don't you ever say anything? it is just as much sean's fault as mine. wouldn't you agree with me?

more to come later... i will do a full on christmas post with pics and details. i got a lot of other neat stuff, besides kids toys. but for now, we are going to see Sherlock Holmes with the fam. all i can say is we were incredibly spoiled and i feel incredibly blessed and grateful for all of my sweet friends and family. i don't deserve you! i didn't get my puppy, but i got a lovely tin of popcorn with pictures of golden lab puppies all over it. that will have to do for now... i am destined to get a puppy. just you wait. also, it was a no go on the cupcake car. oh well, there is always next year, right?

i am way behind on everyone's blogs, so please forgive me! work has been so busy and all that christmas shopping is incredibly draining. we went to 4, i repeat 4 family christmas parties last night. and 2 this morning. sigh, how do people do it?

also, i woke up with a cold sore. on christmas. WTF santa? i'd rather you give me coal. at least we can use that with our grill. herpes doesn't do anyone any good. why the crap was it ever invented? i guess it is the gift that keeps on giving, so maybe it was appropriate for christmas? sigh. i dunno.

And a Merry Christmas to you too!

Merry Christmas!! Only it stinks about the cold sore- SO sorry. Santa needs to give you some "HERPE-AWAY" cream or something :D And little kid gifts ROCK. I just got a baby hamster thingie that rolls around and makes noises. AWww, my baby Jilly. :D Haha, enjoy yourself this break, and don't stress about all the parties/shopping!

Ams said...

Merry Christmas to you and Sean!!
I am so glad to have met you in this blogging world and am thankful for all my bloggy buddies :)
Have a great night!!
Merry Christmas.
(And what the heck? No cupcake car? And no puppy. Geez!)

Merry Merry Christmas!! Herpes from Santa ---- GEEZ!!! lol

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Oh no! When I get really sick or nervous I'll get a cold sore. I tried this stuff called relieve and it was gone the next day!

Merry Christmas!!!! I think the lite bright is AMAZING!

I am Stacey... said...

I've always wanted a Lite-Brite! Have fun with yours! I love kids toys. So does Josh. He asked for Jenga blocks as a wedding gift, and we got some.

Rasha (andthisiswhatshesaid) said...

I love bright lights! hahah they rock..

Merry ChristmaS! Hope it was good.

mart and lu said...

your hilarious! merry merry christmas lovely!

Maddie said...

um, let's not forget that i left a freakin candle burning at work all night! yes, i will call it "pulling a chloe". merry christmas!

my name is lauren. said...

still sad you didn't get the puppy but a popcorn tin with puppies is almost as good. almost.

and guess what....i just got back from seeing sherlock holmes too! loved it.

also...i love little kid toys. except i get bored with them after about an hour and then they get banished to a forgotten closet. i can't wait 'til we have kids and i can just play with their toys. and a light bright? flat screen? i simply cannot wrap my head around this concept. i remember the ones with the patterns on black construction paper where you had to punch the holes through the paper. old school style.

one kid toy i got a few years ago was an easy bake oven. i always complained to my mom that my childhood was tainted because i never got one, so she finally got me one and it was pretty anticlimactic, because when you're in your 20's you can already use a real oven, so who cares about a little plastic pink one? i also really wanted that game "mall madness" where you get to swipe your credit card on the board game and buy stuff. never got that though :(.

glad you had a good christmas friend!

p.s. glad your serious about visiting. that would pretty much make my life!

Merry Christmas !!!! :)

Mery Christmas! Light brites are awesome and I am jealous of yours. That really sucks that you woke up with a cold sore. Take some Lysine, it will help it from exploding and becoming scabby and taking longer to heal. Did you love Sherlock Homes? We went to see it too and loved it.

Nahl said...

oh God I ALWAYS have clothes on the wrong way too. It's so annoying!
Anyway, hope you had a wonderful christmas. It had been long since I dropped in...had a wonderful time reading.

shirah said...

merry christmas chloe! thanks for being such a great reader and friend (though we've never met! haha) i hope your cold sore gets better...and have as much fun and go to as many parties as you can! it will never be the same when the holiday season is over :)

Jenni said...

aw you poor dear! haha, I love kids presents! I gave spencers sister a GIANT pink piggy bank (shes almost 30) and it was so awesome!!!!!
Merry Christmas dear!
PS-I hope Sherlock Holmes was awesome! I'm DYING to see it!!!

Jennifer said...

nintendo ds' rock! I totally have one, and sometimes my 7 year old nephew comes over and we play super mario together. HE BEATS ME EVERYTIME! dagnabbit.

kids toys rule, no lie.


Elizabeth Marie said...

I think people will start wearing their shirts inside out...and call it the "chloe", so basically you're a trendsetter! :)

So glad you had a Merry Christmas love!!! XOXO

Sara said...

glad your Christmas was a good one!! :)x

Shelby Lou said...

their a lot different! That's good! haha I love your blog, sorry you got a cold sore on christmas that bites.

thanks for adding me on twitter! :D

Randi Lee said...

hahaha, tsk tsk on him for never saying anything about your inside out shirts!

my name is lauren. said...

hey chlo!

those tights are from forever 21. i think they were only $3.50 or maybe $4.50. they had a million cute pairs. you should totally check them out. you could even just buy them online if you don't have one close, since all the tights are one size.

hope you find some cute ones!

oh...and p.s. i didn't forget about your silhouettes... just in case you thought i was a sucky friend. i was just crafted out for a bit, but once i'm recovered i promise i'll get on it. hopefully i'll finish it sometime this month. it's like a 3 step process, so it takes a little while since i can't do it in one sitting. ok. that's it. i just didn't want you to think i was super lame :).

love you girl!

my name is lauren. said...

you're funny. of course you can give me a nickname... it's only fair. and lou sounds perfectly fine to me. craig calls me Lo (like "low") sometimes, but not enough to consider it a full fledged nickname :).

oh...and glad we're on the same stress-free wave length as far as gift making :).

hope you had a lovely sunday girly... i spent mine folding a months worth of clothes. bleh!

Tennessee Sigmans said...

Merry Christmas, Chloe! Sounds like you had a great Christmas! Sorry you did not get the puppy. Maybe when the weather warms up.

Did you get to see Sherlock Holmes? How was it? It has been sold out around here. Have a Happy New Year!

Elise Halladay said...

Merry late Christmas! I hope you and Sean had a good one. Sounds like you did! :) I love the toys you got. That is so cool. Also- my hubby and I LOVED Sherlock Holmes. I thought it was awesome. Can't wait to hear more of your Christmas day and gifts.

my name is lauren. said...

That's funny that I was in your dream. I wonder what I sounded like in the dream since you've never heard me talk :). That would be crazy if I sounded the same as in real life. Maybe one day I'll have to put up a video (once I have something interesting to make a video about) so that everyone can hear what I sound like. What if I sound different than people thought? Like my voice is actually really weird and I just never knew? And then nobody wants to be blog friends with me cause I'm the girl with the weird voice? Well I guess I'll just have to trust that my loyal blog friend will stick around :). Man this is a long rambling comment. I'm just on my lunch break killing time. Always fun when you have nothing exciting to do. Do you and Sean have lunch dates since you work at the same place? That would be so fun. Ok..., I'll stop rambling now.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Selma said...

A very Merry Christmas to you, too! :) Sounds like you had a good Christmas despite the cold sore on christmas. :) Hope you get to have some fun and enjoy the rest of this year!!! :D xoxo

my name is lauren. said...

you're silly :). celebrity couple...sheesh! of course i wouldn't forget you! how could i forget my bbff (best blog friend forever!)? hello??? i only check your blog like 20 times a day!

oh...and i'm super jealous you get to have lunch with sean every day. i wish i could have lunch with craig every day. but then maybe we'd get sick of each other. maybe.

anyway, hope you're having a lovely monday!

Sara-Jane Elizabeth said...

You're hilarious! I'm sorry about the herps, I hope it goes away very soon. I hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Michele said...

It sounds like you had a great Christmas! Sorry no cupcake car or puppy. There always is next year!

Michael & Mindy said...

I am really wanting an update from you. This 4 days without posting is crazy talk! I know work is busy. I know you are busy. I know I am lame and need a life away from reading your blog. BUT...I still think you should :)

PS, no pressure.

Suz said...

I'm a pretty new reader to your blog, but I must say you have quickly become one of my faves! Just wanted to let you know I included you in my 10 Blogs to Check Out in 2010 list in my latest post!
