Christmas Tree: Part 3

Once we realized the old tree had seen the last of its days… we had to break down and go buy a live one. We* wanted to go to a Christmas Tree Farm and cut down our own tree, with a saw and everything, but the farm closed at 7 and it was 6:30. So we opted for one from the pre-cut assortment. It was freezing.

But we got it home.
Got it up (dot com).
And decorated it.

Merry Christmas Eve, everybody!
Hope you’re enjoying yourself with family, friends, or both.
I’m off to finish (start) my Christmas shopping… ’cause I’m that girl.
*When I say we wanted to cut down a tree, it was really just me. Tamara thought I was trippin’. But she was willing to go anyway, ’cause she’s awesome like that

Shit Ami Says…

Photobucket
My friend, Scotty D, is one my favorite people. He’s effing hilarious and was one of the first people I showed the Shit Girls Say video to, because me and my roomie say half of that ish to him… on a daily basis. He wasn’t really phased because he’d actually shown the video to Tamara himself first, like a week before I ever saw it… whatever. That’s neither here nor there. He did however, send over this list this morning of shit I say. And I’ll admit, it’s pretty spot on. And pretty hilarious.
(I’ll go ahead and apologize to those of you reading this
that don’t actually know me or spend time with me…
it’s probably not going to be as entertaining for you.
My bad.)
Can you open this?
I got this shit.
Do you have heated seats?
This song is my JAM!
(followed by spontaneous dancing)
I slept for 10 hours last night.
Food baby.
Girl, I got these shoes/this purse/this hat for FIVE dollars.
Boom!
It’s super fun.
It’s so cold.
(teeth chattering, arms straight down at her sides)
I’m out of town that weekend.
Punch bug!
Bye buddy, I love you, I’ll be back
(to Tango)
I was with my boyfriend, Ryan Gosling/
my boyfriend, Matthew McConaughey/
my boyfriend, Ryan Reynolds, etc.
Can I have a mint?
Knock that ish out!
Dot Com.
Pull your car in forwardwise.
haha… good job, Scott. good job.
If you had your own list, what would be on it?

Christmas Tree Part 2 – The Jank Continues…

So after we put up the old family tree, and after we tried to fix the janky stand, we decided that maybe it’s time to retire the fake tree and go out and buy a real one. It would smell better anyway… But by this time it was late, we were tired, and it wasn’t going to happen that night. We still needed some sort of Christmas decor though… we’d been SO excited to get a tree up.

So why not plug in Tamara’s grandmother’s ceramic tree she’d given us?

OMG even this tree is janky!
Note the light that looks a little different from the rest:

Anybody missing any Lite Brite pieces?
Wow.

Shit Girls Say – There’s an EPISODE 2!!!

I saw this video on Monday from Krissy over at Miss B and Hustle. It has since become my favorite video in the entire world. I’ve shared it on twitter, facebook and watched it myself probably 50 times since then. “I’m not even joking right now.” If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor:

and now there’s an EPIDODE 2!
These 2 videos have made my week.
How many of these are you guilty of? I’d say about %60 for myself…

McMullen – Begley Christmas Tree: Part 1

Me (McMullen) and my roomie Tamara (Begley) have been dying to put up the Xmas tree for weeks now and I finally remembered to go grab it from my previous house (left it in the attic). Last year my dad let me have the family tree that we’ve been putting up since I was about 7 or 8 years old.
Total score, right?
Photobucket
Well we got it all put together
Photobucket
Then put some lights on it
and realized something was a bit…
off.
Photobucket
The tree was completely crooked
because the 20 something year old plastic stand
was janky and broken.
So we had to fix* it.
Photobucket
That didn’t go over so well…
which is why there’s a part 2 to this story…
*tape it together with masking tape

Park Bench

Since it’s an unseasonably warm day (66 degrees!),
and since I overslept and missed my ballet class,
me and Tang went to the park to run.

The best part about the Wilderness Loop
is the bench at the top of the hill,
at the end of the loop.

It’s nice to cool down,
stretch, sit, and chill for a few…
