More Birthday celebrations!

They just don’t stop, do they?

On the Sunday afternoon, Kristy came to the house for dinner and gave me what can only be described as a very, very good present. I kind of feel bad for her though because how is she going to top that next year?

For those of you not sitting at the table with the rest of the cool kids, that is a life-sized cardboard cut out of the Doctor from ‘Doctor Who’. SO awesome!! Except for the fact that I keep walking into my room and getting mini-adrenalin rushes because for a split second I think that there’s someone lurking in the corner. Although I am not the only one in the family who gets a little freaked out by the Doctor.

It was so silly because she’d actually been in my room for the WHOLE day but just not seen him. And now she doesn’t really go into my room anymore!

I had this little guy hanging out by my window for two days last week. I was a bit worried about him as possums are supposed to be nocturnal and he was running around, having a great time in the daylight. But after two days, he didn’t come back so I guess he went back to his normal home or died.

I also got my ‘craft’ on last weekend. I brought wire to make some candle holders for my party in a few weeks time. Me and the roomies had fun making them. Although me and Girl Roomie both got frustrated that Boy Roomie was a natural at making them and it took us blood, sweat and tears to even make one!

We made about half a dozen and they looked SO good when it got dark. You couldn’t see the wire and it looked like the little tea lights were floating in the air. And here is the actual picture via Pinterest (of course!).

Hey! Happy happy birthday! Do you know yesterday I was like...hey it's Laura's birthday...and picked up my phone to send you a text. Then realized...um I don't have your number. Hahaha. Then I was going to email you but figured you wouldn't get it until AFTER your birthday since it was almost the 14th in your neck of the woods.
That video is too funny! What a guard dog...showing that Doctor who's boss (get it...doctor who! :p)
PS - great job on the hanging lights!
And I hope you are loving Vampire Diaries. It's at it's mid-season finale now and won't be back on until the 5th of January so you can probably catch up!

I love everything about this post (except the possible death of the possum). I think I'd be getting mini-adrenalin rushes because I'd walk into my room and think the Doctor was there about to take me on a fantastic TARDIS adventure. Best gift EVER. LOVE the tealight holders! Gorgeous! I'm planning on going out for some crafts/Christmas decorations this weekend and maybe a few hanging (non-flame) tealights are what I need in my apartment. Love you!

Those candle holders look fantastic. Maybe Boy Roomie should put his talent towards making a whole bunch of them and selling them to fund the party? That seems logical to me. :D
