I eat the turkey then I take a nap.

Thanks to my wonderful husband and his holiday bonus, I will be the proud owner of a new Dell laptop later this week. You don't know how much this excites me. We've been using a borrowed laptop the last couple of months. I don't want to sound ungrateful because this laptop saved my sanity on several occassions, but it's been extremely tempremental. The power cord has to be plugged in at all times even if the laptop is fully charged. If you bump the cord in the slightest, you have to jiggle it back in place. If you're not fast enough, it shuts off. Basically, I could only use it on a flat surface like a tv tray or the kitchen table. I also had to use it when the kids were occupied or asleep. It'll be nice to once again blog in bed in front of the tv... like it's supposed to be done.


Our weekend was full of food, family and friends. We spent part of Thursday visiting The Hero at the fire station. On Friday, we spent the day with my family at my grandparent's house. My grandparents are enjoying my kids so much. I consider myself extremely lucky to still have them in my life. On Saturday, we spent the early part of the day with The Hero's parents and his extended family. It was a packed house. After lunch, we headed home to watch the biggest game of the year. {Florida State vs Florida} After six years of defeat, we beat the Gators! And, to top off a perfect day, we found out that the Noles will play for the ACC Championship after another team lost.

Yesterday was Little Bit's birthday party. We were once again surrounded by our wonderful family and friends. This shindig was kept much smaller than the last though. Little Bit racked up on clothes and goodies. I hope to share pictures from the party in a day or two. The Talk of Tinseltown will resume next week when I have more time. Until then, enjoy your week.

Congrats on the laptop! Blogging was meant to be done in front of the TV. That's just how it is.

Glad you had a great weekend full of family and friends and that your team won. That always makes a weekend all the better.

Yay for bonuses!!! I'm currently appliance shopping b/c of the wonderfulness that was deposited into our account last week.

I can't believe she's already had another birthday. It seems like a few months ago that you were preggo at the pumpkin patch.

Congrats on your new Dell! :) I had a temperamental computer and it's a wonderful feeling to upgrade and get something that actually works when you plug it in.

Hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving--sounds lovely!

I so feel ya on this! I just got a netbook after having no computer at home for months. I am so happy, it's probably unhealthy.

Yay for the new laptop and Happy Birthday to Little Bit!

And I can actually, for once, say Go Noles! ACC! I'm a Clemson girl, but I was happy to see them pull it off.

Oh I hear ya on the laptop power issue - my older Mac Powerbook has the same issue and I've been sans laptop for nearly a year. Hubby randomly decided he "needed" that expensive new Droid tablet without even discussing it with me so, since we apparently have the money to waste on that, I went out and financed myself a new Dell laptop as that's something we actually need and we can all get some use out of =)

I got the new 15" Dell AMD Inspiron and it's pretty nice! It was on sale for around $400 too and with Best Buy financing the payments are really low too with no interest if paid off within 18 months (although we'll probably pay it off in the next few months).

But, congratulations on getting your own... That's wonderful... Hope Little Bit enjoyed her birthday... Come visit when you can...
