Christmas time! Finally!

Tree with flash on
FRIGGIN' FINALLY! Okay.. I got it done.. Phew.. Long story short we have not completely finished unpacking from last year's move to this apartment. So in the living room (where the tree is now) behind the coat closet was a mass of plastic containers and boxes still to be unpacked or sorted.. or chucked.. you know.. the stuff we couldn't find places for without making some headway in another room.. *cough* computer room *cough*

Tree with flash off

Anywho.. Last year at the last second hubby and I got our very first tree together! Friggin' 11 years have passed and a bunch of stuff happened but this is our first tree! We got a good artificial tree with like 1200 lights LMAO!!!!!!! Anyway. It survived the packing back in the box from last year and only 1 broken bulb had to be replaced! Hubby did an excellent job of doing this while I was a sleep with yet another headache.. /sigh..

While he was showering I put up our decorations. We can now see it from every angle so we need to go out and get more ornaments for the bare spots on the sides and a tree skirt.. since this year we can actually see the bottom! I don't know about you but I'm totally in the mood now :D


Tree looked so bare so we got a tree skirt to go with it. Oh I feel so domesticated LOL Got it today (12/17/08). Still haven't gotten our 2008 ornament.. groan..

DnD DAY Baby!!

The start of the D&D DAY!
Okay time to go uber geek on you! Okay.. To be perfectly honest.. I haven't played a full D&D game since like.. oh.. 6th Grade.. I tried a couple years ago over a friends house but they were very advanced in how they played and instead of a group going after monster.. I had a guy role playing his Rogue as a total chaotic evil thief and he kept trying to kill me the whole time.. I.. didn't like playing that way.. so to my surprise my best friend from Delaware says "hey you want to play?".. Hubby wanted to but he's not going to DM.. but she wanted to so we just said oh what the heck LOL.. Besides.. it's been a while since we've seen each other and this is just a good excuse as any to meet! Besides.. she promised Munchies! And hubby promised his homemade pizza!

As you can see the spread got bigger..

I'm cross referencing this blog with the What's cooking blog so I'll go over what we ate there. :) Either way the food was excellent and we munched on it for about.. hm.. 12 hours? LMAO!!!!!! Either way we had a great time! All of us were at least Lawful Neutral or Lawful Good so no more backstabbing thieves to worry about..

I was on the left.. Hubby to my left.. to his left friend fiance and bottom DM position was my friend from Delaware :) Have you see so many die in your life?? That was just her set! (Hubby had his)

Anywho we had a great time.. so much so we are going to make this a habit. We were all trying out Rules version 4.0 for the first time and so far looks like fun! Hubby did 2.5 and friend did 3.5 and there are stark differences but overall we liked it!

We didn't have miniatures for our characters so I cracked out our figurines.. they were collecting dust in our library anyway :p

Since we were just toying with playing we didn't bother going out to get new miniatures of our characters (I wasn't sure what I was going to play yet..) so we just used these things.. aren't they cute?? Hubby was a Paladin (tank) so he played Taz.. Wizzy was Marvin, I was Garfield with the teddy bear (I'm a healer) and friend was the other Garfield with the graduation cap.. We didn't play the 3rd Garfield with the dual forks LOL. If all goes well we should be doing this very often. Maybe even twice a month.
