Fab Abs Friday!

 I would really like to find him under the tree. Please pool your money and buy this for me even if you can only afford an hour for me.
 Here are a few things that I found to help with your Christmas cheer.
 Mark should behave himself.
This one is terrible and that is why I loved it so much. That is an actual ornament that you can order. People are screwed up and I love it.
Happy Holidays,
SonyaAnn

My Inappropriate Love for You

It's not that I am leaving you, I'm just need a little time to finish all of the Christmas stuff around here. This is what I get for leaving it!
My posting will probably be sporadic until after the New Year but the love is still there.
Be back in a flash,
SonyaAnn

Snow Balls


I'm so different from Mark. He is so worried about change and having a ton of people find his blog. Me on the other hand, would think that would be great. Unfortunately, with the pictures and the naughty words that I use no one would listen to me or take me serious. Sigh, I am my own worst enemy. My enemy is a sexual deviant with naughty pictures. When I put it like that, it seems somewhat better. Moving on.
Back to the Christmas crap! I haven't bought anything else. I just don't care anymore. I think that DJ & I crushed Den's Christmas spirit a bit. Den realized that DJ and I think that putting up a tree is not all that it is cracked up to be. Dragging a dead tree that birds have pooped on or animals have had sex in, into my clean house doesn't sit well with me and puts me in a pissy mood. I've tried to get a fake tree over and over again. I was informed that a fake tree would ruin the season for Den and Anna. They fight terrible but when they unite for a cause that they think is important, they are a force to be reckoned  with. Don't tell them that I said that.
But the good news is I've had more money come in. Yay for coming. I got another $3 from Pinecone Research. I got $20 for testing a dishwasher product(I made $35 from that one alone) and I got a $20 mastercard debit card for spending $200 on Christmas presents online(how do they know what was presents and what was normal spending? that thought is kinda scary).  I've made $906.50 for the year. Den still might buy something for the women at work and he needs to buy stocking stuffers for us. I'll probably give the $43 to him and see what he comes up with. I'm not going to sweat it anymore, I'm too much like the Grinch as it is. It's just so much work and all everyone does is complain. I think that is why I'm not a Christmas person. The favorite part of Christmas for me is the 25th when its just the four of us, we get Chinese take out and lay on the couch all day, watch movies or play with the stuff that we get. Simple and enjoyable.
I'll let you know the final tally in a few days.
Happy Holidays,
SonyaAnn

Meet Me Under the

He seems a bit shaved. Enough said.
So I think that this will be my last post on my disappointing Christmas spread. I don't think that we will be buying anything else(fingers crossed). Notice that I am now using the word we-I'm hoping to place the blame on Den a bit. It's good for him, it builds character and he has a ton of it!!!

I feel really inspired to do better next year. I'm at 55% savings.
I didn't say anything before but Den won in Vegas. We came back with $750 and paid for everything while we were in Vegas. He was on fire. I used that money to pay for Christmas. So figure the costs from there.
I'm excited to start writing about what I have planned for Christmas 2012. I have such big ideas. I just want to show that you can still give(which is soooo important to me) and can get the costs way down.
Thanks for coming to see me,
SonyaAnn

Withdrawals

I still miss Vegas so this is my methadone. Go here and listen to this song. Well stick around and watch the video. DJ didn't appreciate the artistic expression of the wiggles.
And then head here or here for a little gambling. Now if someone would please bring me a drink and blow smoke in my face it will really be real. This is what I do in my free time. And you thought that all I did was watch porn.
Smile,
SonyaAnn

Nipple Noel

I was going to call this post, "I'm a boob" but I'm just to classy for that.
The totals are getting ugly and I'm depressed a bit about it. Be kind in the comments or I'll delete them. Yes, I'm in that pissy of a mood. Haha. I figure as long as I don't spend anywhere near as much as I did last year($1858.71), I have made progress. Say what you will, I'm still brave enough to track all of it and put it on my blog.
Here is what I have had come in

I wasn't able to work any deals and I'm a little mad at myself for not starting this earlier. Jewel had a deal this summer that if you bought $100 in gift cards you got a $20 cat. Live and learn.

I've paid $1085.75 for all of the above, if I had paid full price it would have been $2797.82. $512.25 has come out of my pocket for Christmas this year so far(I have $290 in Walmart cards coming that is included in the $512.25).Yeah, yeah I know, I'm overspending.  I've saved 61.2% so far. I've made $863.50 in free money not including free gift cards and free gifts.
I think that I'm almost done once the Walmart cards come in. Den usually takes $30 and gets candy for the stockings. He also likes to bring something in like candy for some of the women at work. I'll let you know what the total is. 
I'm off to drink(I wanna be like Mark when I grow up),

Doggy style? OK that was wrong because he is even a bit young for me. I'm looking at him from more of an artistic view, right?
Have a great weekend,

Wicked Wednesday!

This is the last one I promise! But it is in keeping with the holiday theme. The more I watch him, the cuter he gets. Hmmmmm maybe it has something to do with that bad boy thing that I like so much.
Have a great hump day,

McVal did this to me! Well some of it!


McVal you have been such a wonderful influence on me!!! I never thought that this would happen but I was inspired to sew. Well, almost sew. On Thanksgiving we made T-shirt scarves because you posted about them. LOVE IT! I'm going to make more even. I felt so fun when I wore mine out the other day. I made the pink and the gray one, Anna made the other three. She has been wearing hers a lot.
This was not inspired by McVal. We also soap carved on Thanksgiving(I'm a little behind on posting these). I know that looks like an I and a Heart(made by Anna) but it's not an I. My "I" came in second place. I lost to a deviled egg. This project was inspired by prison.
Loving dysfunction,
SonyaAnn

Dick the Halls



I think that these lights would look great on our tree. I'll have to talk to Den about it.
I have a sad total of $17.58 in the Christmas fund and well I spent it and then some. That little bit of money includes $3 that I got from Pinecone. I have earned $506 this year in free money not including free gifts or gift cards. I've paid $597.12 for everything below. The numbers won't match up(money earned and spent) because I still have a few things that are in the mail.
I think that I'm going to have to add $300 of our money to the fund. GASP! I'm fine with that. Even if I hit $500 OOP this year, that is so much better than the $1858.71 I spent last year. Sluggy bite your tongue and possibly a few other people's too.
This is what I have had come in/bought.

So classy,
