I came home from work and Brent tells me Charlie Brown Christmas is on. We watch this every year together. :) He asks me, "What is your all time favorite Christmas movie?" Well, Love Actually is my favorite movie of all time, and it's actually a Christmas movie, lol. Yeah, it starts before and ends after Christmas, but I still consider it a Christmas movie. So he says, "Well, do you consider Die Hard a Christmas movie then?" (If you aren't a Bruce Willis fan like I am, the movie takes place during a work Christmas party.) Something to ponder, lol. What are your thoughts on that? :) Brent's favorite is National Lapoon's Christmas Vacation.

Look what came in the mail! I know you're probably all sick and tired of me talking about it...but I just can't hold my excitement in. Though I don't post on 2 Peas in a Bucket, I do lurk on there quite a bit. The Non-Scrapbooking Board is my all source of knowledge. But don't say I didn't warn you, the gals on there are ruthless and will tear you apart.
One day I was lurking as usual and someone had posted about bidding for Olympic tickets. I asked Brent and threw in our names. I really wanted to bid for Figure Skating tickets, but it was just too expensive. We compromised on Men's Hockey, and Canada and USA are predicted to be top contenders! Though we are going to the arena, I am sad we can't see a Canucks game while we are there.
If I knew what life was going to throw at us, looking back, I wouldn't of gotten these tickets. Getting my car stolen and buying a new house obviously were things that hadn't happened or even thought about yet. But since it's money we already spent...might as well enjoy our once in a lifetime experience.
Summer 2012 Olympics are in London. I keep teasing Brent we should go back. We went to London as part of our honeymoon last year. Maybe one day when I'm retired and rich enough, I'm become an Olympic roadie, lol. This is totally unrealistic, but it's a fun dream to have.
