Umm, I may have ran into Rick Hendrick there and arranged to put an MMC sticker on Junior's car during the Daytona 500 with that money. You'll have to look really close though. Apperantly 2 million only buys you a 2 inch by 2 inch sticker.

We are 49ers fans here, but I also like Ray Lewis and the Ravens. When his last game was telecast and some negative people commented on his dance, I was taken aback. I LOVE his dance, plus he is so darn cute! Neither Harbaugh brother is hard on the eyes either. One of my favorite players is former Buccaneer Warren Sapp. My husband calls him my boyfriend!

Oh it gets ugly in the house if they don't win, I usually have to go in another room until all the female testosterone dissipates and the levels of socialability returns to a more normal level....lol

Plus with this Superbowl, with the Harbaugh vs Harbaugh (brothers that are head coaches) facing off against each other and also because of this being Ray Lewis and also possible Ed Reeds last game, it will be on in my house; I guarantee that!

Lets keep our fingers crossed for another win!!!!

Those numbers do look good. I was thinking today as I read Crown's Countdown post that there are really only a few hours that we are not anticipating Christmas, either current or future. We have a few hours on Christmas Day when Christmas is here in the present, and then we begin anticipating "tomorrow." With the Season running in the background, the Season seems to be so much closer than it appears (sort of like the "saying" on the side mirrors of a car!!!).

In addition to being so funny, Made, you are also great at thinking up alternative, less expensive ways to do things (i.e. using the dryer and accomplishing two goals: laundry and heating!!!). LOL

It's cheaper to run the dryer. Today I think is going to be a Christmas movie kind of day. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Your weekend sounds marvelous. Wish you could have taken all of us!!! Like you said, we are in the last weeks of January. Hard to imagine!!!

While everyone was skiing/snowboarding or visiting the village on Saturday, I remained at the chalet to ensure that I did not miss the raising of the Kings' 2012 Stanley Cup Champions banner. It was quite a sight. Something I will always remember. It's just too bad their play wasn't as memorable. Only 47 more games to ensure a playoff spot.

We visited the village in Mont Tremblant on Saturday night. It was beautiful. It would have been great anyway, however, their Christmas lights and such are still up and fully lit. I took some photos but, I have not yet uploaded them to my facebook and I am currently at work. More than likely, I will post them in the next 24 hours.

The temperature was a slightly cold -23c/-30c (-9f/-22f) with windchill this morning. Beautiful, isn't it? There does not look to be much relief for this week either. Oh well. It's January and I'm in Canada. This is to be expected. Also, I don't mind the cold weather.

Well, I should return to work. Although I cannot do a whole lot. Our main server seems to be down... Have a great Monday, everyone! We're already into the last full week of January!

When we come down for the movie viewing, let's go there!!! Also, when Hubby and I go cross-country to visit relatives (sometime after we get the kitchen completed and there is money left over) I will try to stop in. Nothing like inviting myself, huh? I really like the sound of this restaurant. Does Wayne like it, too? Hubby does not like Indian or Thai food, but he might like the salads.

It's hard to pronounce some of it and I don't think I really know what I even ate, I just scooped up stuff and it was just good!!! It has been my favorite restaurant for over 20 years before I became a vegetarian, then when I was vegetarian for 3 and half years, of course it was the best place to eat for me! I am no longer vegetarian but it is still my very favorite restaurant!!! I also have dairy and gluten allergies and all of their foods are marked so it is always safe for me to eat there! =)

By the way, this restaurant wins awards almost every year. The prices are fair as well under 10 bucks for lunch and a little over that for dinner. I am getting hungry!!!

You and Made are so smart!!! I have always wondered about you and Brent. You are so good and brilliant about giving temps in both Celcius and Farenheit. Do you automatically calculate that or do you just "know" it? Here in the States, not many people outside the medical field do that.

LOL, I do the same with the laundry! We do not send all that warm air outside but vent it inside so that we get the heat and humidity in here. It is great, on laundry days we hardly turn up the furnace.

Well, we are 49ers fans here, but we also like the Ravens. No matter who wins, Hubby will be buying the championship hat and T-shirt after the Super Bowl is over.

To be honest, I am way more excited that hockey is back. I would be even if my Steelers were still in it. The past couple of years I have really enjoyed hockey. It's such an intense, fast-paced game - so much fun to watch throughout! Our next game is on Wednesday, so I have to wait a couple of days - boo!

I am off from school today so I will be catching up on some school/work stuff!
