Merry Christmas and blogger awards.

Merry Christmas everybody! I hope you are all having a very special and fun, family filled day.We had a great time here at the Perrone/Milligan household and are hitting the road soon for Vermont.I am definitely going to be missing my family today but Len’s family does a great job of helping me feel included.

Len and I just finished opening all our presents and I’m feeling pretty damn lucky. Len followed my Christmas list but also thought outside the box.He’s good like that. Me? Not so much! Here’s an overview of the goods.

He got me a bull dog ornament. I forgot so I'll have to double up next year!

These are all my stocking stuffers: socks, toothpaste kit, hair things, and ORGANIC POMEGRANATE ORANGE AND CREAM BARK!!

This earring and bracelet set was bought from an independent crafts person. He loves to support artists.

Running pants and the cutest hoodie, The logo on the back is fabulous.

My two favorite gifts--Enell sports bra (big boobs= huge, hideous bra that could double as a shopping bag.) I LOVE this Patagonia jacket but it's a little too big so we'll exchange on Monday. Good job babe!!!

I bought Len lots of clothes and ski pants. My favorite gift to him was this calender of our first year with Ellie. He loved it too.

This picture is priceless because it's an accidental action shot of her grabbing her special Christmas treat right out of my hand. She looks psycho.

She was pooped after all the present unwrapping.

Moving on. Anna passed the beautiful blogger award to me so I have to list seven random things about myself. Then I must name seven lucky and beautiful ladies to do the same. Thanks Anna!

1. After college I lived and worked in Sydney Australia for over four months. I worked at an ice cream shop and gained 15 pounds.

2. I have gone sky diving twice- once in Vermont and once in New York.

3. I am terrified of sea animals, blood and missing limbs.

4. Ā I worked for my friends parents company in high school called Wacky Wax. We were entertainers at Bat/Barmitzvahs around NYC where we made wax sculptures of peoples hands. We had to lube everyone up with lotion, dip their whole hand in a vat of wax three times, then peel it off their nasty, sweaty, oily hands.

5. I worked at a rice necklace station where we had to write peoples names on a piece of rice then put in inside a necklace. The hardest name was Stephanie.

6. I hiked a glacier in New Zealand.

7. I traveled up the coast of Oz for two weeks in a run down van that had a spray painted lady on the top. We slept and ate in there, and showeredonce.

The next beautiful blogger award goes to…








It was hard to just pick seven so if you’ve already been elected, let me know. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. I will be blogging daily over the weekend but not as frequently. Cheers!
