My photo
Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

***Just be warned that this is the first of many holiday themed posts. I am that excited, and will probably submit you to more holiday cheer than you can take... what I am saying is, you are more than likely going to want to punch me in the face before the season is out***

This is a local soft rock station.

This said soft rock station has started to play Christmas music 24/7.

I, my dear readers, am in HEAVEN!!!

Yes, I am one of those people that neglect Thanksgiving. I will say that having a Hubs that sees turkey day as more than just 2 days off work and majors sales has helped me loads with seeing it more as a just a bump in the road to Christmas.

I still have not heard one of my favorite Christmas tunes, a story about a girl rationalizing for her one Christmas wish to be full filled. And what did she ask the man in red?

For a Hippopotamus of course.

I love this song.

Especially the part where she burns her parents when they say a hippo would eat her and she says "Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian."

HA! take that parental units!

We all had those Christmas wishes growing up.

Mine was for one of those plastic play houses, you know the one, the yellow ones with the pink door and green shutters. Oh, how I wanted one of those play houses, a place to call my own and wait for my imaginary husband to pull in to the drive as I took a mud pie out of the oven and called little Jack and Jane in for supper.

I never did get one....

Back then it was devastating, but now I see how having a big plastic playhouse on a small deck would be problematic.

My little 5 year old self vowed to get my daughter a plastic playhouse and by golly I intend to keep that promise.

What was your hippopotamus?

  1. I wanted a playhouse too but never got it but I remember being in the mall with my mom and kicking and screaming for one of those plastic playsets, little to my knowledge that they already bought it and I was getting it for xmas.
