Mom bought me a Christmas tree. It's so pretty!!! I just put it up tonight. After work I went and bout ornaments for it. I'm so proud of it!!!
When I was at Target, I saw these adorable plates. They were super cheap, so I couldn't pass them up. I figured they would make cute serving plates. And they sparkle!!

Today I went over to Uncle Larry's for Thanksgiving. The food wasn't as yummy as it usually is. But I did enjoy my Mom's dressing. Around 3:30 I went over to Les' for his family Thanksgiving. His brother-in-law made black eyed peas with ham and jalapenos. They were delicious. I'm going to start making mine like that now. I was too full from eating earlier, so I didn't eat anything else. After hanging out over there for a while, we went back to his place to take a nap. For some reason I couldn't sleep, so I was forced to watch the football game while he slept. After the game I came home.
I've been so sensitive lately and I don't know why. I get my feelings hurt constantly and cry and the smallest thing. I've also been slightly depressed. I just want to be happy again.
I think I'm going to get a white Christmas tree. I really want one, and I think it will fit perfectly in my living room. Now I just have to save up the money to get it. Speaking of money, I hope I make a lot this weekend because I need it.
While at the second Target I found a tree that matches my wreath. It was only $20, so I got it.
Before I bought the tree above, I had bought this. It's real pretty, but I don't know if I should keep it. I got it for my bedroom. And it really looks good with the lights off. But I will probably end up taking it back.
I know I'm not supposed to buy myself anything, but I thought this picture frame was the neatest. So I had to buy it.
After going from Target to Target, we went to Wal-Mart to find Liz a white tree. They had a 6ft pre-lite white tree for $30. Now that's a good deal. I might consider getting myself one. I bought some groceries while we were there and then came home. I was exhausted, but I still had to make that chocolate eclair cake for tomorrow.
I was invited to Les' family get together tomorrow, which I'm excited about. I'm mostly excited about getting invited. It feels nice. But I don't think Mom likes the idea of me splitting my time. I just wish everybody liked each other and there wasn't any tension or hurt feelings. But I don't think it will ever be like that. Which sucks, because I'm the one stuck in the middle. But I'm not going to think about that. I want tomorrow to go as smoothly as possible. I can't wait to eat all the food!!!

Then after all that fun I met Chelsey at the Outback. It was the first time I had actually hung out with her in a long time. We sat in Les' section and he gave us excellent service. That night I really didn't feel like being alone. I had hoped that I would get to hang out with Les, but he was tired. So I went over to Mom's and watched TV until around 5 in the morning. I actually got caught up on all my shows. AND I watched a little Shot of Love with Tila Tequila. What an interesting show!
Wednesday I slept most of the day and did a little cleaning. Mom came over and brought me chicken fried steak from KFC. Later on me, Les, and Liz went to the Billiard Bar. I had an ok time. It was nice to see the guys, especially since their girls weren't there. We left kind of early and went back to Liz's where we made fun of her neighbor.
Thursday I had to work :( After work Les came over and spent the night. We didn't really get to hang out because he feel asleep on the couch shortly after we got home. I had trouble sleeping that night because I took my allergy medicine and it makes me restless. So today I was sick and tired all in one.
Today everyone was in a bad mood at work. Sarah quit and Michelle was fighting with everyone. I just tried to stay out of everyone's way. It wasn't very busy, and I thought I was only going to make $40. But I had a party of almost 20 as my last table, so that gave me an extra boost. I ended up making $74.
I know tomorrow I'm going to be tired, but I have to fight through. I need to make good money this weekend. Christmas is approaching and I haven't bought any presents.

For Halloween I went and got my hair done. I decided to go dark again. It's a real pretty brown/red color. I also cut my bangs, but I don't like them. I've decided that I'm going to let them grow out again. After that I went out to dinner with Mom at the Olive Garden. After dinner we stopped by Kristin's parents' house to see Elora in her costume. Then I went back home and opened my presents from Mom. I got a shirt from Old Navy, the jacket I'd been wanting and couldn't find, and my black sweater boots. Those boots are my new favorite thing! Then I headed over to Liz's. I hung out there for a little while. Her apartment is so cute now. I will post pics later. After an hour I went to Les' and spent the night with him.
The next day I slept until about 3 in the afternoon. Les didn't have to work so we went back to my apartment and got ready. Then Me, Les, Rebecca and Sarah went to Matts. I realize now that that place is a lot more fun when everybody is drinking. After dinner I went back home and slept.
Rebecca came into town last weekend and she stayed with me Sunday night. It had been a long time since I've seen her, so it was nice to get to hang out with her. Too bad I was really tired.
This past Sunday was me and Les' 1 year anniversary. We went to eat at the Outback and then went to the movies to see 30 Days of Night. I him a chocolate eclair cake and bought him a chair, since his broke. It turned out to be a good day.
There are so many things that I want to do, but I have no money to do them. I want to buy these white frames from Ikea and print out pictures. I want to hang them in my bedroom. I also want to paint stars on my wall in my bedroom. I think that would look neat. Or maybe birds. I also want to get creative and make things. I want to buy some shadow boxes and decorate them. Also, it's been a while since I've worked on my scrapbooks. I just want to use my imagination a little. Too bad I need money to do it.
