Apostrophy Designs: December 2007

So This is the New Year...

Well I thought it would be fun to make my last post of the year, and say my favorite saying, "Seee ya next year!!" [So juvenile, I know] I can't quite figure out where the year has gone, only to know that it is in fact GONE! 

Do I have any regrets? Ya sure... mostly about the fact that we failed our 2007 resolution... 7 Vacations in the year 2007, we did 5... so close, boo.
Any resolutions for this forth coming year? Ya sure... 8 children in 2008, sike! But that would be quite the accomplishment and it might help me get over the 2007 resolution failure. 

In all reality I love this time of year because it helps me realize not only my failures but also the wonderful things that have happened in my life, I am truly blessed. My goal for 2008 to be more humble in realizing the blessing in my everyday life.

[Sorry to go all cheesy, but there is one cheesy post on every blog, and this is mine!]

P.S. Top albums of the year....

10- Biffy Clyro

Sayonara, Finally!

Over the Christmas Break we were finally able to get our
tub refinished! The smell was terrible for a few days,
but we were so glad to get rid of Pinky.

[I wish I would've taken better 'before' pictures, but what can ya do?]


Guitar Heroes


For Christmas, Jash (the Josh that belongs to Ash) got the Guitar Hero 3, so we all rocked till our hearts were content...

I had video footage of Nan & Scott, however it ended up being too dark, but they sure knew how to ROCK!

Christmas Time [Revisited]


We had a really good Christmas and are blessed to have both of our family's close enough to do not only one Christmas Eve party, but two! We spent the earlier part of the day with my family [the Denning's] and then the latter with Adam's [the Andersen/Felt/Clark Families].

It was fun to meet and hold little Luka & see those we don't get to see often! We also missed those we didn't get to see, the Creer's & Becca, please come and visit soon!!!

New York, New York

Here's a compilation of photos from New York, Adam & I took over 200, but only about 10 made the 'blog cut'. Enjoy!

New York Pops @ Carnegie Hall, conducted by Doc Severinsen, Very Excellent!
The Group - Lisa, Me, Don, Aaron, Annie, Scotty

Time Square!

The Burger Joint -- Literally the 'Burger Nazi's' of New York, but waay good & worth being scared out of your mind for.
Also, it ranked #9 on The 20 Burgers To Eat Before You Die List in GQ mag.

Boo NO Dave, Boo.

Sickest Day of my life (stomach flu), but survived long enough to tromp through lower Manhattan!
[Statue of Liberty in the background]


Top of the 'Rock'
[Empire State Building Behind]

Santa Land @ Macy's

The actual lights that will light up when the ball drops next week!

Carmine's -- We went here right after SPAM-A-LOT [hilarious], it was such a lovely meal and a great way to cap off a wonderful trip! At one point The Christmas Waltz played and actual tears were shed, many of them.
Last, but not least, what trip isn't complete without Kevin Bacon?
We went to the Today Show, which is filmed up by the Rockefeller Plaza and Kevin was the celebrity collecting toys. My favorite part was when Adam yelled, "I love your work with Hanes." This all happened when he was about 5 feet or so from us...
All in all, by far the best trip I have ever had!!

Gotta Love the Subway

I realize that I am behind on things I am wanting to share, so instead of boring everyone with one HUGE post. I will continue to post once, sometimes twice a day until all I want to say has been said... So there.

Ok, you saw a preview of our trip to New York, a picture of me with the Naked Cowboy (which has caused a lot of harrassment on my end). This would've gone up before those photos if my camera hadn't died while uploading...

One of my favorite things about the East Coast is the subways and that's because you never know what you are going to find down there.

Here's a prime example...

What Movie Is Your Christmas?

Your Christmas is Most Like: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Christmas is a big, boisterous event at your place.
And no matter what, something hilarious usually happens.

Merry Christmas!!

It doesn't look as if I will be posting again until after Christmas... so enjoy yourself and eat a lot of candy [I know I will!] We didn't do a Christmas card this year because it's just us two, but I found this card from the Shabby Princess Shoppe, added a photo and vola!~
a Digital Christmas Miracle! Enjoy!

Best Christmas Present Ever!

The Naked Cowboy & I in Times Square... [Santa MUST have gotten my letter this year!] I had to keep reminding Don that he [the cowboy] made me put my hand on his tush... New York is a big, big place... and not that I know other wise, but it is the BEST at Christmas!!

I will post more later...

Bon Voyage, Auf Wiedersehen...

Well we are off to the 'Big Apple' tonight! Words can't fully express how excited I am for this trip... there's been a lot of Christmas Anxiety going around and I am catching on, so a good, fun, festive, relaxing Holiday is in order! Pictures to follow, shortly...

P.S. No, the 'Big Apple' is not in Canada... this one is though.

Trouble In The Jungle...

If you like little Australian girls who rap about saving wild animals from evil mankind, than this is for YOU! This is Bindi, the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's daughter...along with "Crocmen"...aka The Wiggles
[Click on the picture to watch clip].

Well Hi...

I have survived... yes, fist pump... finals week is over (and all in one day!) Who knew?? Right? Well I have a lot that I can complain about and all that jazz, but I will just gloat, I have only ONE semester left in my college career! Now there's reason to celebrate (and of course get over the 'what if I didn't pass my tests' slum)!!! So victory dance on my friends, dance on...

Also, we had a Christmas Party and this improv group Thrillionaires was the entertainment. Now I am pretty skeptical when it comes to people trying to be funny (on purpose), but these guys were good, crying good. If you live near Provo and you are as skeptical as me, try 'em and enjoy!!

You Are Here [Or I Will Be In A Week!]

New York, New York!


The dude, who turned out to be a she, couldn't make it today to transform our tub. Boo.

I Feel It In My Fingers... I Feel It In My Toes...

You only have 19 days to watch ALL of these...yes ALL of them, because they are sooo good! (plus, any other Christmas Classics)

Oops how could I forget...

Seee Ya Pinky!!

Yep that's right we don't need you anymore... It's not you, it's us... We love pink, who doesn't love pink... But it just doesn't feel right anymore... So, Goodbye... Sayonara... Auf Wiedersehen... See Ya... Arrivederci... Au Revoir... Ciao... Bis Dann ... Adios... Zai Jian ...

That's right, on friday some dude will transform our Pink tub into a sparkling White one!! I can't wait, it is one of the last things to be done in our life-long bathroom transformation. In fact, if you can't remember where we started check this out. I will post final pictures soon!

**Did I mention how proud I am of Don for doing this without any professional help?? (His brother Aaron has helped quite a bit, also much appreciation!!)

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

These are a few of our decorations we have up so far this year...
I feel like a kid again, Christmas has just made me giddy this year! I have even compiled what I believe to be one of my BEST Christmas Mixes yet!! (Besides the WHOLE Josh Groben CD I got for my Birthday) but it's seems to be going around, there are a lot of bloggers out there doing this... but I only realized that after I complied my list this morning in FineTune, but it's a great idea for everyone to do!! Here goes mine...

  • John Lennon – Happy Christmas (War is Over)
  • Colbie Caillat – Mistletoe
  • 98 Degrees – If Everyday Could Be Christmas
  • Bianca Ryan – Why Couldn’t It Be Christmas Everyday?
  • N’Sync – Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays

**Bare in mind that these are in no particular order and I am sure I forgot a few... I had to do this completely from scratch, because my computer with all my Christmas Music has gone to the BIG computer shop in the sky.

P.S. If you disagree with my list, write your own, or go to YOUR HEART OUT and see their list.

P.S.S. There is also this cute blog called I Love You, I Think... that will give you 30 [way fun] ideas for Christmas this year...
