A little of this, a little of that

I thought I better check in at the good ol' blog since I haven't shown it any love in over a week.
I had every intention of scrapping a little tonight, but instead I started playing around with itunes and before I knew it, I pissed all my time away. Desperate Housewives is on in 20, so after this post, I am headed to the warmth of my couch & some TV time.
It has been bitter cold here...really brutal. Today it was like 20 degrees and we thought it was actually warm compared to what we've been dealing with (-5 with -15 degree windchills). Thank goodness this little baby has been making me smile:

This was a much wanted Christmas gift from one of my nephews. It's funny. I was always the kind of aunt that would buy that one distinct gift. You know, the one that was the most wanted, paying no regard to expense, because hey! I was a cool aunt with no kids at the time so why not give to my nephews and niece? Well, I had eyed this bag in Macy's knowing full well I wasn't going to be buying it any time soon (I have children, I have Christmas gifts to buy, I need to be pratical, I can't drop that kind of money on a purse). My sister saw me fondling it and apparently told my nephew. You can not imagine the scream of happiness I let out on Christmas Eve when I opened this! I can't believe my nephew, now 23 years old, bought this for me! I'm telling you, it gets me teary eyed. Funny how it's all run full circle. Now they're the ones spoiling me! Unbelievable, truly unbelievable.
That's it for tonight. DH is about to start soon. I'm catching a cold, I can feel my head getting stuffy so the couch is a welcome spot right now.
Have a good week!

Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. I've been thinkin' about ya with the chilling temps over there (especially since it's been almost 80 degrees here)... eek.
    That purse is absolutely stinkin' beautiful!! Looove it! What a fantastic nephew!

  2. Love the story of the purse! I spoil my nephews too:) So sorry about your Disney trip. If it makes you feel any better we were supposed to go over the February break too but due to a lot of circumstances we won't be going. I'm ok with that but the kids are a little heartbroken.
