Christmas Brilliance...

May I start by sincerely thanking all those from whom I received gifts, cards, and well wishes for Christmas. I was so very grateful for everything I received, and so grateful for this time of year because it keeps us all in touch. Yay! However, those who know me will understand the sheer joy behind this post...

Every year, my family draws names for Christmas. It's a lovely tradition, and we have a great time swapping gifts. This year was no different. I love love love giving gifts, but when my sister L gave me my present to unwrap, the excitement in the room reached palpable...(apparently I was the only clueless one...)...(pardon the nasty cell phone pics, but that's all I got...)

My Awesome Blanket
But, wait! What's that peeking around the corner?

My Awesome Blanket--take 2!!!

Oh the joy... Sometimes I get a little nervous when the kids are so excited about something I'm clueless about (not sure why), but this was so freakin great! I love love love LOVE LOVE it! My sisters said they had so much fun figuring it out/making it that they wanted to make more...but, alas, I'm the only nutcase they know that loves both teams equally. Ha!

And, in other related awesomeness, I got home for Christmas to the room I stay in and found this jewel o' brilliance on the dresser (in my pink room with brown accents)! My mother knows me WELL, and I'm so loved. Need I say more?
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!

Funnier than the author could ever have imagined...

"To all the girls who are in a hurry to have a boyfriend or get married, a piece of Biblical advice: Ruth patiently waited for her mate Boaz. While you are waiting on YOUR Boaz, don’t settle for any of his relatives: Broke-az, Po-az, Lyin-az, Cheatin-az, Dumb-az, Drunk-az, Cheap-az, Lockedup-az, Goodfornothing-az, Lazy-az, and especially his third cousin Beatinyo-az. Wait on your Boaz and make sure he respects Yo-az."

I know, it has nothing to do with Christmas or anything, but it's still hilarious. HI-larious. On so many levels...

Ok, I've watched this so many times...

I figure if I watch it upwards of possible-to-count times, I should probably share it. Don't get me wrong, I love VP. I do. (see two posts down) But these guys...amazing. I love this.

If you know the two songs, this is un-freakin-believable. Good gracious. One person on Youtube tried to describe the transitions: "A..B..ABABABBABBABBBABABA"...SO TRUE. It is seriously one song. It's amazing...I'm so glad they won. They were definitely the best.

I heart Pentatonix. That is all. That break-down by Kevin and Avi...holy...

And I just absolutely love their techno sound...even at the end...they totally sound like they're in a studio!? Bah.

Buying. Song. Now.

Two days later:

Nope. I had to add this one too. Holy crap. I don't even know this song, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
