Perspective

Ok, so I have a confession, Mark and I are LOST fanatics. There, I admit it. They say that's the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. However, this has not always been the case. Last year, Christmas of 2007 to be exact, was when this obsession, for me, began. Mark had always been a fan of the show from day one. Not I. When we first began dating, I made so much fun of him for watching what I called, " an upscale Gilligan's Island." He begged me for almost two years to watch the show, but I refused. FINALLY, since I had two weeks of vacation, I sat down to watch the first episode of Season 1, thinking the whole time that I would certainly not care for it. Well, needless to say, by the end of the very first episode, I was hooked. I mean I was like someone on crack, I just couldn't get enough. One Saturday, Mark and I got into a HUGE fight because he refused to watch anymore. ( In his defense, we had watched about six episodes in row) I just couldn't believe that he refused to watch anymore since he was the one who had gotten me hooked in the first place. I realize now that I was being ridiculous, but at the time, I was truly mad at him....until he sat me down and made me watch the video below. If you are a true fan of LOST, you will most certainly find the humor in the video, if not, well, it's still funny.

Holiday Recap

The holidays went by way too fast this year. Below is a slideshow of pictures from our family trip to NYC and my annual girls trip. Each year my friends from college and I get together to shop, eat, and celebrate Christmas. This year (well, technically last year) we chose to meet in Charlotte. Our friend Isabelle lives there, and she was so sweet to let us all crash (and trash) at her home. As you can see, we had a blast. Mark and I spent Christmas in Corinth, but were able to celebrate with his parents after Christmas. We had a wonderful holiday and hope that our blog friends did as well. Happy New Year...20 days late! :)
