Christmas Cards!!!!

OK, I will admit it....
I am BAD about Christmas Cards!
I take the time and fill them out all nice and pretty
but,
I Never Send Them Out!

James rolls his eyes EVERY YEAR when I pull out the Rubbermaid
shoebox of cards and the green and red and silver pens
and start making my list because he knows
they
will
sit
there!

THIS YEAR!!!
I have vowed to change my Christmas/Holiday Card Ways!

Since this has been my year in Social Media activities and I have taken so many trips to Disney, I figured that I should show off my favorite place to visit with James in our pictures and what better way to incorporate Christmas Cards and Pictures then Shutterfly?

James and I have used Shutterfly a few times before to send away for prints from our wedding and Our 2 big trips to Disney for His Birthday and My Birthday! The Pictures came out fantastic and we have a lot of them in frames around the house! We have had a few of them blown up into larger pictures and the pixelation is not off at all! Which AMAZES me!!! My #AsianBFFNicole has even gotten some calenders and Mugs done from Shutterfly! Love those ideas as gifts!!!!

Ok, so back to Christmas/Holiday Cards.
I want something NOT Religious because, that is not us.
I want something cheery and bright.
I want something that is fun and festive BUT not over the top!
These are the choices I have picked out so far!




Um THIS is adorable and I have a very cute Castle/Kissing picture I could use!




This Is perfect for a Holiday card for those who celebrate all and everything! :) And it is Festive!


FLIPPING ADORABLE!!!! I Love them! Simple and Cute!



Ok, I really like this! 4 spots for 4 Disney park pictures.... Totally a contender!



OMG ! I REALLY Like this one!!!!! This isnt going to be easy! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!





I REALLY like this idea... would be a fun way to show off our year to Family & Friends!
Much Cuter then sending a Christmas Letter!


This is the card I had First looked at when I thought about doing Christmas Cards this year! Here is a Mock up of what I had planned.....
I am not a HUGE fan of my picture choices so James and I are still playing with ideas. But this gives us an idea of what we want to do!
We are hoping to get out to the Parks in the next few weeks to grab some pictures to help out with the cards!
But I do know for sure that I will be using Shutterfly for my cards! I can't go wrong with the prices and the quality!


If you are a blogger and would like to receive 50 Free Cards from Shutterfly then PLEASE click here!

Happy Anniversary James!

To the Man who Makes Me Laugh on a Daily basis
To The Man who Never is a lack for knowledge of the rarest forms
To the Man who lets me be as Bitey and Smackey as I want
To the Man Who lets me be whiny and needy as much as I want


8 years ago today we met and both agreed it was love at first sight

3 years ago today we decided to say I Do

It hasn't been the best year for us but we have made it through!
Happy 8 year together, 3 year married Anniversary to my Lover*, Soulmate* and Rock!
Here is to MANY MANY MOORE!


Forever and Always
not the two week kind either



*- My Mother hates those phrases and told us at our wedding if we used them that she would kill us both. Well we did and she didn't BUT the nicknames have stuck as a joke :) Gotta Love it!!

Sure, I want to be "part of the club" but We can't always get what we want!!!! So if that means I have to watch from the side then so be it.

Perfection

OK so... i've about had enough!
As you all know I am a bit of a Twitter addict..... I LOVE my Twitter peeps! They are some of my most favorite people! I have had amazing experiences with them and because of them and I would not have it ANY other way! My Tweeps Complete me!
WITH THAT BEING SAID

O Y E


I swear.
I drink.
I dont smoke but My husband does and I have.
I had sex prior to marriage.
Ive engaged in less then legal acts in my life.
I AM NOT PERFECT!
I dont WANT to be perfect!
I live my life for me.

I am a Disney Fan!
I am a Janet Jackson Fan!
I am a Seinfeld Fan!
I LOVE kids!
I Love Kevin Smith Movies!
I Love Reading Erotica!

These things make me who I am.
I am not an employee of any of those above things
and
I am allowed to show my distaste with any of them!

Disney charges WAY too much for tickets & parking
Janet Jackson needs to Stop with Plastic Surgery
I'm Mad Seinfeld went off the air
Impolite kids drive me fucking nuts
Kevin Smith needs to make moore movies
Books are FUCKING expensive!

Do any of those things make me less of a fan?
No
Does one have anything to do with another?
No


The last few weeks have been a bit strange. With the Mom's Panel stuff coming out and people being disappointed ( even if they don't want to admit they are when we know they are). My opinion is
"Fuck Them"
If they don't choose you then it is your loss.
Well, one of my friends didn't make it and I tweeted "Fuck Them" to him and he re tweeted it out and got an onslaught of BULLSHIT chastising him for RT-ing a "bad word"
Now, I have a POTTY MOUTH!
I do! I am aware!
I have since I was a teenager!
There are some days when I am proud of the words I form together!
case in point: my favorite swear word amalgamation
#FUCKSHITBALLSCOCKVAGAINABIRDS

:)
THAT is classy right there!

Ok back to the point.....I'm having an issue staying on my train of thought!

Back to having a potty mouth.
I am a grown(ish) woman
If I want to swear I will
As long as it isn't in front of children
As long as it isn't screaming out in a public place
I will do it

But when it comes to
MY Blog
MY Twitter
My Facebook
MY Yahoo Messenger
I
do
what
I
want
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And if you don't like it then you can unfollow me!
That is the GLORY of Social Media!
If you dont like someone then unfollow them!


NOW
The issue was stated that a certain person who I am not a friend of due to other reasons
thinks that anyone who swears is not a "True Disney Fan" and is NOT "Living The Disney Life"
Are
You
KIDDING
ME
????????


WHO the HELL are you to tell me ( or anyone else) I am not a fan of Disney because I Swear?
WHO THE HELL are you to tell me what kind of life I should or should not be living?
I Live MY life!
Not Yours!
Not Anyone else's!
Get the FUCKING HELL off your high horse and stop judging people!
Nobody needs to judge anyone else
(except when you are wearing skinny jeans and a tube top with knee high boots because um
DAMN)
Who is anyone else to tell someone the degree of "fandom" they have or don't have?

ESPECIALLY someone I saw Use and Abuse and Treat poorly people that were trying to help them! Someone I saw be rude and nasty to people who work at their favorite place. A place they hold in such high regards! Is that being a "good Disney Fan"? Cuz I am pretty sure it IS NOT!
But who am I to say so. All I can do is live my life and surround myself with amazing people who make me a better person!

Which is WHY I have blocked Said person.
I have had this person blocked for a while now. I can't see him and thats how I like it!
Do I judge the people I am close with for being friends with this person?
Nope!
Because to me that is not being a good friend!
I just have NO desire to be around this person.
I don't see any good in someone who judges others in that way.
And before I get the hate comments let me make something perfectly clear....

Someone who uses an Illness as an excuse to act in this manner is NOT healthy.

in closing I would like to say
Jen you are amazing
Lea you are amazing


DF- You are not my cup of Tea

Giveaway Time!!!!! ~CONTEST CLOSED~

~CONTEST CLOSED~

I haven't been blogging much, been busy with moving and working and
#EpicOctober and such that it just hasn't been in my mind. Haven't really had the ambition to. Just been trying to figure out what I want to do. That being in mind, know what I do love to do? Giveaways !!!!!!!!!!!!

My Friend Shannon from High School who was a Chorus Girl/Show Choir like me, (Pre Glee when Show Choir wasn't as glamorous!) just opened her own Etsy Store named Aidille which is a combo of her 2 ADORABLE kiddos Aidan and Camille!

I LOVE her banner! It is SO dang adorable! She makes appliquéd shirts for kiddos! They are the most adorable things I have ever seen!
Her Bio:

The name "Aidille" stems from the two most delightful people I have ever met; my children, Aidan and Camille. I started making appliquéd shirts after being repeatedly disappointed in the selection of quality clothing for my son. I strongly believe that kids should be kids, for as long as possible, and their clothing should reflect their innocent yet whimsical spirit.
All of the appliques are drawn and hand cut by me, heat transfered onto quality tees, and then machine stitched for extra stability. I've also added buttons and hand stitched details throughout. Many hours go into making these high quality appliqué, and no two are exactly the same. The eye buttons might be different colors depending on what I have in stock. But ALL will be as equally cute!


I Have to share with yall my two favorites!

First Up: The OwlUM OMG~! This is so fricking adorable! I need one in my size ASAP Shannon!! ;) on Purple PLEASE :P I love the Corduroy body! LOVE IT!!!!

Second Favorite: The Underpants Monster!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I would totally get this for any of the little men in my life! Heck, I might even get one for the big man in my life ;) The striped socks are beyond adorable!

To promote my Girly Girl Shannon and her new venture she has decided to team up with me and do a giveaway to my fantastical readers! Shannon is giving away one of her hand made t shirts to one of my LUCKY Peeps! Um WOW!! Y'all are lucky! She will Make one shirt for the winner's child for either a Fall/Thanksgiving OR a Christmas/Hanukkah theme. Whichever you choose.

Mom's Panel

What a crock. Its a popularity contest in the Disney Form. I am taking this time to point out some of the people that Disney passed on this year that I think were a HUGE mistake!!!!! 20,000 people applied and they took 50??? Um Yeah,,,,, ok Guys! We almost believe that you read EVER SINGLE ENTRY! Bah!!! This is in no way shape or form suggesting that the 50 that did advance are not deserving! I know a few that did and I am HAPPY as HELL for them! I am just saying that Disney missed out on quite a few amazing and special people.... AGAIN! This is not my type of thing but many people i hold dear and close to me are into it so I support them! AGAIN I STATE: This is in no way shape or form saying that the 50 that made it are not deserving because I am sure that most of them are but, Disney has made an error passing up these kick ass folks In My Opinion! @TraciLeigh Honestly...... do I need to say more after a picture like that??
@DCanoli- Mama to two amazing boys and my favorite Frugal Peach!
@ShariJ- The most EPIC ROOM MATE ever and with a baby like that..... #SQUISH
@Shaene_O_Mite- Disney needs to kick themselves in the teeth for not taking Shaene! The dude is exactly what the Mom's Panel is all about! It is their loss cuz that means I get to spend more time with him :)
@MagicalMousecap- She ran the 5K in a Tiara.... a true Princess!!!!!
@JimGarth- Any man who wears a pink glittery tiara and walks around Disney with it on is ok in My book!!!!!

@DizneyDreamer- Dole Whip Addiction and all.... she has made her spot in the Disney community and Disney is FOOLISH to pass up on her! FOOLISH!!!!!!!!


There are a about 19,943 other people that I did not mention that I am sure deserved it as well. I am thoroughly disillusioned with the entire process and hope to god that Disney smartens up because, this year has opened a lot of eyes for people I think ,and while there will always be people applying, they need to re think who and why and how they do this process!!!!!!!!!!
