Sing for me baby

When Stud and I first met and we started to talk in Skype a lot, it was usually right before we went to sleep at night.  I used to ask him to sing me a song before he left.  At first I think maybe he was a little bit shy but after I while he would really break out in song.  He would Google up the background music and the lyrics and really get right into it.  A few times I even convinced him to sing a Portuguese lullaby which was really cute.  🙂

As he would sing I would giggle and actually sing a long too.  I think rather than put me to sleep it probably woke me up even more but we were having fun with it.  We haven’t had a sing a long in quite some time but from time to time when I’m feeling down Stud will ask me if I want him to sing.  I hadn’t really thought back to those late night sing a longs in quite some time but when I was looking at these pictures of Stud with his guitar it kind of reminded me of our musical whimsy.

Anyhow, here’s a man with a guitar with a voice that just won’t put you to sleep.

Camera Shy

Sorry ladies (and Brent)…Stud’s being camera-shy today.  So it’s just me.  I’ve been having a block finding new and interesting things to wear.  I’m not sure if it’s my mood or perhaps my new shape and skin that have thrown me off.  Or maybe there are just too many great items out there to choose from.  Whatever it is, I’m having  momentary lapse of SL fashion inspiration.

Today as we were lying lazily around our sky mess Stud took these pictures.  The outfit is really rather grey but I think it makes my new skin shine.  I love this hair from truth.  This colour “toast” was the demo and I really wanted it.  It’s part of the “fades” pack which is actually L$50 more but I think it was worth it.

Holiday Recovery

Has too much time passed to say I’m still trying to recover from the holidays?  I hope not because Stud and I just needed a lazy day to lie around and do nothing.  I see everyone blogging their resolutions and all their great plans for the coming year but true to form we are always a little behind schedule.  So instead we put on some comfy robes and had a lazy day.

We played some second life…

Last Minute Gift Ideas

Just a quick post today – probably our last one before the big day!  Things are starting to get really busy and I have about a million RL things that I should be doing right now.  Sad but true – I must leave procrastination nation and get my RL butt in gear.

Stud and I tried to put together a few last-minute gift ideas for the ones you love or … maybe the ones you don’t love that much.  lol

Stud thought maybe someone would like these reindeer slippers.  How do I put this?  ummmm I’m hoping he doesn’t think they would look good on me.  🙂

I of course had some jewelry in mind for Christmas.  *hint hint * Diamonds would be my first choice but I found these really cute Christmas Light Set from Earthstones that would make a nice gift for a friend or even yourself.

And then there this big cute cuddly reindeer that Stud actually already gave  me for Christmas.  I love him!  There are 5 different sit poses and the reindeer realistically shifts from side to side depending on the pose you choose.  Thank you Stud!  He’s fun to cuddle with when you’re not around.

I’m sure there are thousands more super awesome things you can buy for your loved ones this holiday season.  I could only force Stud to take these last few pictures before giving him his Christmas break.  🙂

To all of you who have been reading our blog this year – Thank you so much!  We are happy to be able to share some of our SL with all of you and we are looking forward to sharing the New Year ahead.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

BIG Trouble

It all started two days ago when I found out I was going to get to visit Santa.  Not some fake “mall” Santa – this was the REAL DEAL!!  So I started writing my list, checking it twice.  I knew for sure that Santa would know I’d be naughty not nice – oops I mean the other way around.  I’ve been nice, that’s it.

Anyway, it was finally time to go meet Santa.  I put on my best green and red dress.  I knew Santa would like it.  I even got a cute little Santa hat to match and I wrapped flashing Christmas lights around it just to give it that extra dazzle.  Everything was perfect!  I looked great, felt good and I was confident that Santa was going to love me!

When I got there, I had to stand in this huge line.  I was a little put off because I thought Santa knew how special I was.  Why did I have to wait in line???  Oh well, it gave me time to review my list and make sure I hadn’t forgotten to add anything.

Finally!!! The moment was mine.  I reached the front of the line and Santa looked straight at me.  With a “ho ho ho” he patted his lap and I climbed up onto his knee.  Santa was really nice and I thought we really hit it off.  I told him about how extra good I’d been all year and told him about my wish list.  He said he’d do his best and told me not to forget to leave the milk and cookies for him on Christmas Eve.

I really liked Santa – a lot!!!  I didn’t want to leave so soon but he seemed to be rushing me a little.  It may have had something to do with the line in front of his chair but I didn’t care.  I mean – I’m special right?!?  When I got up from Santa’s lap I wanted to give him a big kiss and tell him what a big fan I am.  I tried to kiss him on the lips but just as I leaned in he turned his head and my kiss landed on his cheek.  Santa blushed and laughed a big “ho ho ho” and said, “Now Katie be good”.

I’m not really sure what happened to me but in that moment I just knew I wanted to kiss Santa again.  I mean, this was probably going to be the one and only time I would ever get to meet him, right?  Something came over me and the next thing I knew I was wrestling Santa to the ground.  I grabbed the mistletoe from my bag and held it over Santa’s head.  I should mention that at this point Santa was lying flat on his back in front of the Christmas tree and I had him pinned down with my big red boots.  I could hear some stupid elf calling for security.  It was at that moment I knew I was in BIG TROUBLE.

Luckily Stud came through and bailed me out of jail. Although he was really upset and pouty about the whole ordeal.  He kept asking me if I thought it was okay to kiss other guys.  WTF?  Santa is not just “another guy”.  I mean, I’ve been his number one fan since I can remember…or maybe even before I can remember.

The lawyer told me that if I write Santa a letter to apologize he’ll drop the charges.  Although, I got a couple really nasty text messages from Mrs. Claus.  Apparently she’s not too happy with me. Let me tell you, for a woman that looks THAT sweet she really does have a potty mouth.  I mean….WOW!  Settle down Mrs. Claus.  Why do you have to be so jealous???  That’s not very NICE and apparently Santa only likes NICE girls.

I’ve been teasing Stud for the last week that he’s going to get coal in his stocking but now I’m starting to think that might be me.  I better go start my letter of apology.  Wish me luck!!!

Leave My Candy Alone and Nobody Gets Hurt

Last weekend Stud and I made our land and ourselves look like winter.  As you can see things got a little crazy when Stud tried to steal some of my Christmas candies.  Decorating ourselves and our land for Christmas was really fun but a bit bitter-sweet.  We found that a lot of the things we wanted to place on the land were prim heavy.  We have a small parcel with a limited amount of prims available to us.  I have written a letter to Santa and asked for more prims – and I think we may be moving after the holidays.  🙂

I am thankful that we have now have snow on our land!  But mostly I am just thankful to have a place to spend time with Stud.

Spa Day <3

Nothing like a day at the spa is there?!?!  Well I’ve spent too many lindens this month on clothes and misclenaeuous items sooooo I had to have my spa day at home….but hey that can be just as fun.  I spread out some fashion magazines, broke out the required green facial mask only complete with cucumbers, pulled out all my makeup and of course some nail polish!

I even turned up the tunes and danced around the room a little bit.  I felt like a supermodel, a pampered princess or perhaps Miss Spa day Canada 2012!

But of course spa day had to be spoiled by a guy!  Stud came running through the room with his big man feet and knocked over my favourite pink nail polish.  So I guess spa day ended kind of bad.  lol  I guess once I’m dressed and ready to go he’ll have to take me someplace extra special!  But only after he finishes cleaning up the mess he made.  lol
