*Champagne, Wine and a Merry Good Time

The last two Christmas's have been absolutely miserable. Around Thanksgiving I was feeling the same misery. Something in me snapped. I vowed to make this holiday season different and embrace it. At the time, I was unsure how I was going lift my sprits. I realized if I sat around being grumpy, then I deserved to be grumpy. Instead, I would look back on past Christmas's with found memories, rather than longing to have just one more with my entire family. I started to plan a holiday party - my first. Everyone loves a party. In Savannah, the month of December is filled with one holiday party after another. It's what we do best here in Savannah - party! I knew lots of people would show up and drink, eat and DRINK! But when the party was over what would be left? Instead, I asked everyone to bring a toy to benefit Toys For Tots! Nothing makes a person feel better about themselves like helping other people. Plus, most of us do not have children and going toy shopping is a blast. A week prior to the party, a few good friends came over for a pajama tree decorating party. It was a blast a few of us in our pajamas eating pizza, drinking egg nog and trying to figure out how to get the lights on the tree. It was that night that I realized I had a "new" family. Closer than ever with my "real" family, I was lucky to find myself with an extended family. Savannah seems to be the land of orphans and misfits. We find ourselves here and search for something or someone to make it home. For me it's my friends. Thanks to everyone for making this a great Toys For Tots party. It was an amazing turnout!

Savannah family!

Gunner alway wants to fight me! ;-)

Lot's of toys for the kids!

The best PJ party....ever!

* This just in *

If the information on Alcohol : Problems and Solutions is correct Savannah is the healthiest city in the country. The website states: The bottom line is that abstaining from alcohol is a risk factor associated with poor health and early death. Looks like I'm going to live a long, long, time. Today is a good day!

**Attention Savannah**

I have a very important announcement to make. Read carefully, as the words written on this page may come to a huge shock to those of you that know me. I, SP, on this day declare myself a lifelong Spinster. I would like to think I have chosen this path myself and it was not given to me. Frankly, I enjoy not having to clean up after anyone else, other than my cat. Really, what kind of Spinster would I be if I didn't have a cat? I gush at the thought of not having to share my bottle of wine with another human being. Why should I have to go through all the trouble of getting those trick corks out, just to have someone else drink my wine? As a Spinster, I get to choose what I want to eat every night and then choose which reality show goes best with my meal. Watch out Savannah it's curry every night from here on out. So, if you see me walking down Congress Street looking particularly hot, don't bother stopping me. As of today, I'M DONE!

*the GREAT va*

I'm in Great Falls visiting my sister and taking care of some business! It is so pretty here. The temp gets down around 50 at night. A break from the blistering Savannah weather was much needed. I have taken a ton of pics with my "brilliant" iphone but the phone will not allow me to email myself. If anyone knows a way around this, please fill me in. It's driving me nuts!! Also, I think it's pretty lame that I can't send or receive picture text. Apple please, OH please work on this!

* Mirror, Mirror on the Wall*

I can't stop looking at this mirror on the brocade HOME website. Something about it screams "I'm SO ugly, you must have me"!! I can't justify spending $499 on a mirror, when I'm having to put in a whole new AC unit in my house.

* Paint or Die *

(image found on The Giant Peach News)

Oh, maybe the phrase was "Skate or DIe"? I have always been in lust with the skate/ surf culture. I love the design, I love the passion and most of all I love attitude. I recently broke down and bought a few blank skateboard decks to see what I could come up with. I think I want to design them with type but not sure yet. I kind of stare at them, hoping some sort of design will just pop on to them? Any chance that will happen? So, I was googling "painted boards" today and I came across this amazing artist named Jeremy Fish. I think he designs boards for element too? They were amazingly inspirational! Check it!
