We finally got some snow. It's been a really dry winter in Northern Nevada. Thanksgiving 2010 there was about 3 feet of snow on the ground. Thanksgiving 2011 it was a sunny 67* F out. It's been a nice winter but I've wanted lots of snow. This morning I woke up and there was about 2 inches of snow covering the ground. Not a lot but enough to make this girl happy. Ridley was really curious about the white stuff on the floor. I put his sweater on and let him explore the snow. He was out there for less than 5 minutes. He's one curious kitty but smart too.
Luckily, we got our garage door fixed yesterday. The pulley cable broke and we had to force it close. We were afraid that some little kid might get hurt. We had been trying to get in touch we with the landlord but keep getting their voice mail. Then I get a call from the landlord saying that the number is one that they don't use often. SO the garage guy came over and fixed it.
Our 1 year anniversary was on Monday. The preacher who married us in Vegas gave us a choice of the 12th or 13th. I picked 13th because it would be easier for him to remember being the day before Valentine's Day. For our anniversary he got me this cute shirt from Woot.com It's got a kitty kneading a ball of dough on the front. I really like it. I got him a flask. I figure every man needs a flask. I hope he likes it. We celebrated our anniversary on Sunday. We went to the movies and saw "Woman in Black." It was a good movie. It's hared seeing Daniel Radcliffe outside of his Harry Potter role but he pulled it off well. We went to dinner at the Olive Garden. It was good but super busy. He bought me a bouquet of flowers too. I like getting flowers.
We're 10 days out from our reception. We still havent gotten our card box finished. I kept nagging at him to work on it a month ago and now it's going to be rushed. I order the flowers and linens. Paid the balance for the cake. I need to mail out our cake toppers. We bought a couple of Koopa Paratroopas. One has a red shell the other a green one which are both of our favorite colors. I gave my Koopa a pearl necklace and a bouquet of flowers. Jesse's Koopa is going to wear a black bow tie.
Back in November, I made a manda to the Virgen de Guadalupe. I asked her to help Jesse find a job and help us stay here in our new home. If she helped us, I promised her my hair (meaning that I would cut off my hair.) Mind you, I hadn't cut my hair in over 6 years and that was a big step for me. I also promised to stop drinking for 3 months. Well the 3 months are almost up and I look forward to having a cup or two with my Hubby. He's really excited.
I need to take pics of the glitter shoes I made for the reception and some of the other vintage stuff I bough over the last couple of weeks. I've been practicing knitting. It's actually really easy. I've been practicing knit and purl stitch. I eventually want to make vintage boleros and sweaters. There are a TON of knitting patterns on Etsy. I'm sure once the reception has come and gone, I'll have more time to work on making clothes and knitting.
Oh I finally won something. I won a couple of vintage chickies from The Glamorous Housewife . I am totally excited! I NEVER win anything. I have bad luck when it comes to that kind of stuff. I can't wait to make a post when I get them. Yay!
Well until next time, Ta!
