Spa Night

This past weekend we hosted a Spa Night at Chesapeake Energy Fitness Center. It was a big hit! Abby flew in to be apart of the team. She was one of the people giving facial waxings. She got paid, of course! Here are some pictures from that night. We had a great weekend!

She left and I got strep. Well the test came out negative, but the dr. was shocked. She couldn't believe how bad my throat looked and thought for sure it was strep. We are treating it as though it is. I am ready to eat, drink, sleep, stop sweating through everything, taking 4-5 baths a day. I can not get comfortable. I have been in the house for three days. I am miserable to say the least. Charlie is too. He has not gotten to play fetch or exercise in these three days. I just can't do it. I hope that I will feel up to going to work tomorrow. I have to get better and get this house cleaned before company comes.

But, until that time comes I will continue listening to GLEE's Chritmas CD and Gwyneth Paltrow's songs from glee and the CMA's. Who knew she could sing? Love her. And rewatch all the Hallmark Christmas movies.

OSU Football game.

Yesterday, was our first Oklahoma football game experience. It was a little weird to see all ORANGE. We slowly learned their hand motions and part of their cheers. Always a wildcat at heart.

Hanging of the greens

I found a Christmas tree. And it was not easy. It is not 9ft, like I wanted, but it is 7.5ft. It is the color, width, and not pre-lit like I wanted. I had to compromise some where. Even better, I got it for $78 bucks. All the other trees ranged from $250-900. Thank goodness.

The in-laws are coming down for Thanksgiving. They will all be happy to know:

1. I found a tree.
2. Just bought the new Mariah Carey Merry Christmas II You CD.
3. Favorite "Winder Candy Apple" candle is ready to be lit.
4. It is tradition in the Alderman household to put up the Christmas tree the day after thanksgiving.
5. I plan on putting the tree up on good ole Black Friday or early Saturday.

It makes me giggle to think of the Scotts' putting up a tree the day before Thanksgiving, because they normally put one up 5-8 days before Christmas. I think they think I'm crazy for putting one up so early. And yes, I have already started listening to Christmas music. Thank goodness I have found someone who loves Christmas as much as I do. She too is already listening.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Super mom

Mom's first fight! She made it!
Terri, Kris, and mom Alderman!
Mom cooling off!
Kris said mom bought several of surprise there. :)
Part of the group.

This past week my mom went on her first flight, cruise and trip out of the country. It was an all girls week. A well deserved trip for someone, mom, who tends to put all her wants/need to the back burner to help someone else out. When looking through the pictures, I could not help but get teary-eyed. It looked like she had a wonderful and restful time. Something that was way over due and something she so deserves. I just wanted to share a few pictures from her trip.

Dad was afraid she would come back loving the cruise and make him go on one next time. And that is just the case! We all want to go on one!


Charlie is eating like a normal dog. He is always so cuddly, which I love. I hope he stays this way.

Adult acne.

I have it.

I hate it.

Today at work one of my little girls pointed with her finger at the "boo-boo" on my chin. I just agreed with her. No need to explain. She later found more "boo-boos" on my forehead. Boy, did she make me feel good about myself today.

The things kids say! Good thing she is a cutie. It is impossible to stay made at her! I thinks she was just concerned. hahahaha.
