    She is really coming alOng :)

    Yes she LOVES the my little pony cartoon. It is her favorite show right now. I have to say I find it rather funny myself.

    My dad is bringing a few of my old My Little Ponies with him when we all go to Disney so hannah can have them. I have all of my old ponies but i know my neices likes playing with them when they go to his house so I won't take them all just yet :)

    LOL yeah my mom was like "so should I get her any of those things for christmas and if so... What are they?". LOL they are all My Little Pony characters :)

    And she got to see Santa today and he assured her that he has lots of my little ponies LOL

    So far for christmas I have the following ponies for her...
    Rainbow dash, cherry berry, sunny rays, lyra heartstrings and I will be getting Princess Celestia before Christmas :) .... I mean Santa will lol

    My co-worker just gave me an apple cider donut from the local apple orchard. I lived for these things in my previous grain-devouring life. It's full of stuff I don't eat anymore. But I have been dreaming of them for weeks, because it's that time of year when the orchard is open and churning out these donuts by the hundreds. Yesterday morning I left the house and thought, "All I want is a cup of warm apple cider and an apple cider donut."
    And here he is this morning WITH THE DONUT. No apple cider, but the donut.
    I ate it.
    I don't regret it.

    Had a really good first day back at work. I love those kids. A bunch of them asked me where I had been and said they missed me. :)

    Also, a little girl was crying today, so I came up and asked her what was wrong. She said she didn't have any friends, and had no one to hang out with at SACC (the program I work with) and I hugged her and told her that it was okay, and then I told her to hold on. I went and got this sweet little new girl that we got who is like...obsessed with me lol, and said "______ this is _______ and she doesn't have any friends here yet either. Why don't you hang out and be friends?" and her face lit up and both of them smiled and started talking and hung out for the rest of the morning. When they were bring dismissed I heard the new girl say "see you this afternoon!" to the girl who had been crying. I'm so happy that I could do that and make them so happy. It's just an awesome feeling. Who knows they might even become best friends. Kids are awesome.

    I am down 54 lbs., have broken this awful plateau (up 2 pounds, down 2 pounds) I've been on, and am finally starting to feel comfortable again. I still have 20 or 30 lbs to loose, but the hardest part is behind me (I feel like I am mentally there to tackle he rest, which, I am sure, will be slow).

    Congrats! I've been in plateauville for way too long :(

    Weirdly, I seem to be starting to budge off of it . . . now that I've eaten the wonderful, deep, dark, decadent, rich chocolate, gluten free, pumpkin cupcakes, lol.

    Violet is all clean and pretty from going to the groomers! She smells like maple syrup!

    She's also exhausted and ready to go upstairs to go to sleep, and so am I! Yay!

    Yay perdy Violet! She's so cute!

    DH came home today, so that's nice. We're chilling out in the room. Zander's not feeling well(ucky tummy), and while it's not exactly good news that he isn't feeling well....it's kinda nice to have him just chill out and sleep tonight. LOL.

    Thank you! She is pretty cute. I need to take some nice pictures of her, it's been a long time (for me) since I've posted pictures of my dogs.

    Cece is still in it on XFactor! I was so worried she was going to go home. I didn't understand what the judges found so terrible about her performance last night, I thought it was excellent!

    Now hoping Janelle stays in it after the commercial reveals the rest! :eek:

    ETA: I can't believe they sent Janelle home. She is much better than Paige ... Paige is another Rihanna, and who wants that? :dunno:

    Started talking to a boarding facility that does a lot of special needs boarding about Frodo staying there over the holidays while Ryan and I are in Florida. Apparently my crazy dog's reputation is widespread as she had already heard about my little monster :p

    I am feeling really good about him staying there, and she even suggested a trial run where we stay in a local Bed & Breakfast so that if Frodo needs us we are close (it's quite a drive from the cities). And I was like, YOU PEOPLE ARE BRILLIANT!

    Totally scored a gift that I was looking all over for (for my SS!) for 2.99 at Home Goods. Retail is like $15-20 most places.

    Shazam!
    Also...16 rolls of poop bags for $5. SOLD!

    Freaking love Home Goods.

    My first batch ever batch of jam came out "to die for" from my husband and I messed it up accidentally.
