Christmas Gifts 2015

You should have seen it coming.  On a blog of lists, how could I NOT make a list of what I got for Christmas day?  (I only regret not keeping a copy of what I wanted too, cause I got some things off my list but not all of them.)

After you read this list I would love to see a list of what you received, or what you gave those you loved.

This year for Christmas I received:

1:  A Daryl Dixon baseball cap.  It has Daryl Dixon on it (a character from The Walking Dead for those of you who don’t know).  With Daryl’s image it also has WWDD?  “What Would Daryl Do?” is what it means.

2:  A Daryl Dixon cup.  It is one of the ones that are popular right now, a plastic tumbler with a plastic straw.  This one is red with am image of Daryl Dixon on it in front of the word THE WALKING DEAD.

Got a new cup to go with my new hat. LOVE IT! #DarylDixon #thewalkingdead #cup

Those to things along with the Daryl Dixon Ornament I got earlier this season has made this a very Daryl Dixon Christmas.

3:  I also got the PS3 game Dead Island.  Its not The Walking Dead, but it is a Zombie game.  My husband said that Zombies were the theme of my Christmas gifts from him.  It is a few years old, but I wanted it when it first came out.  More recently Dead Island 2 came out and we saw preview after preview after preview of it while watching The Walking Dead.  I must have mentioned wanted the first one a couple of times when seeing the preview for the new one.

Here it the Trailer for Dead Island.  This is what made me want to get the game the first time.

Those were all the gifts I got from my husband.

The rest of my gifts came from my mother in law and sister in law.  I got them and enjoy them in no particular order..I’m just trying to remember everything.

4:  I got some yummy body wash and lotion from Bath and Body Works.  The scent is called A Thousand Wishes.

My mother in law made this quilt for me. Its just waiting to be cuddled under, if the weather ever cools down.

5:  My mother in law MADE ME an amazing lap quilt.  It is soft, and fluffy and I’m in crazy love with it.  (too bad that it is WAY to hot to cover up in it right now.

6:  I got the Xyron Creative Station that I’ve been wanting for a while.  That made me happy.  I have the smallest Xyron sticker maker, but this one does so much more.  You can click the link there to read an article I wrote about the machine earlier.

7:  I got a movie.  Pitch Perfect 2.

8, 9, 10: I got three books.  I got “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Go Set a Watchman” by Harper Lee.  And I got “The Walking Dead: Descent: by Jay Bonansigna which was the next in a series of Walking Dead novels .

11, 12: I got a whisk and a silicon spatula.

13.  Lowcountry Cheddar Biscuts from Byrd Cookie Company.  They are one of my favorite “cookies” and I had mentioned wanting some to my MIL.  They come in a tin box that I can use to store something in later.

And I think that is it.  Even though I feel like I’m forgetting something.  Looking over at my pile that really does seem to be it.

Unconventional Christmas Ornaments

I used to joke that our Christmas Tree was the only one in the world  that threatens you when you turn it on.  My husband is a Star Wars fan, and our tree can sometimes have explode and shooting sounds from his various space ship ornaments.

I’m pretty much okay with that.  I mean, you’ve gotta be a geek to marry a geek right?

Our tree is basically covered in unconventional ornaments, with a few standard Christmas Balls scattered between.

 

So this year I added to our unconventionality with thisAMC The Walking Dead – Daryl Dixon Ornament from Hallmark Its really no secret that I’m a huge Walking Dead fan, and like most female Walking Dead fans I am a fan of Daryl Dixon.

Or, as some of my other friends call him, “The greasy redneck.”

What can I say?

I was overwhelmed with excitement when I found out this ornament was a thing.  Overwhelmed with disapointment when I tried to buy him, but he was sold out, and overwhelmed with excitement again when my husband surprised me with it a couple of days later.  I had gotten my Darly Dixon Ornament After All!


The Big Bang Theory/Star Trek Cast Ornament is a slightly more conventional ornament, in that it is a round ball shape.   It even has snow.

Oh, wait, that is stars…

Because it is the cast of the hit series Big Bang Theory, re-imagined as the crew members of the original Star Trek series.  My husband, being both a Big Bang fan, AND a Star Trek fan, LOVED it.  I knew that he would.

Another unconventional ornament added to our tree this year was this Star Wars – Holiday Darth Vader Ornament from Hallmark.

Not only is Darth Vader, the dark lord of the Sith, wearing a tie-fighter and Storm trooper Ugly Chirstmas Sweater, he also has on a cute red santa hat!  And when you activate him he says holiday things like:

“I find your lack of gifts disturbing.”

and

“I wish you a Merry Sithmas”.

Yeah, and those are just three of our unconventional Christmas ornaments.

What kind of ornaments do you have on YOUR tree?

5 Places that I Blog

I have been blogging since 1999. My first blog ever was on Xanga. Since then I have had dozens of other blogs. Many I stop keeping due to lack of reader interest.

Right now I’m having a hard time getting people to read or comment on any of my blogs!  It’s frightening, but I suppose it is to be expected because I’m a personal blogger.

Anyway, if you would like to see some of my blogs that are not this one, then check out this list below.

  1.  Noner Says….  This one is a personal blog.  If you want to see pictures of my children or pets this is going to be the most likely place for that to happen.  I also plan to turn this into a place where I might share my thoughts and opinions on various current events.  (In the even that current events stop being so cruddy)
  2. The Art of Living Right here on Blog Job, this one is another personal blog.  I’m likely to talk about the little things going on in my life here, trying to paint a picture with words, or just ranting.
  3. Random Animals This one is an animal and pet blog.  I don’t update it nearly as often as I should.  Here I might share cute animal videos, or share a homeless or shelter pet that needs a good home.  I call it Random Animals because I’m just as likely to share a snake as a fluffy puppy.  There is also a Random Animals facebook fan page.
  4. Yellow Circle is a review blog.  I share book and product reviews.  Sometimes a craft project might pop up on it.  This is my newest blog, and I’m still in the process of turning it into what it might become one day.
  5. Nonersays on Craft Closet This is where I share my craft and DIY tutorials or attempts.  I like to do various journal making projects.  I do art journals, and I LOVE to do kids crafts.  Actually, you are more likely to find kids crafts on my blog posts here than anything else.
