Set timer for around 30 minutes and stick the veggies in the oven. Check every 5-10 minutes and smoosh around with a wooden spoon to make sure the veggies are roasted evenly. Meanwhile, boil water and make the pasta.

I haven't blogged about Rue La La in awhile, but ... I just can't resist today. The Lela Rose boutique is soooo beautiful! Albeit expensive. Here is a little sampling of what you could find - if you act fast! I may not be able to afford the prices, but lots of other people clearly can so HEAD THERE QUICK! Need an invite? Click here!

Todd (my granddad's girlfriend's son) is really into animals, and has a standard poodle, an African parrot, and several neat iguanas/chameleons. The house he and his wife recently moved into was already equipped with a special room, completely with waterfall. Also, it rains in there. Very hard to describe, but we all went a little crazy in there. Here is Todd with my cousin Alexa, and one of the neat iguanas.
Todd with some sort of three-horned thingy. Really neat looking!
And I made friends with the parrot, Chester. I have never been a bird person, but this one was super cool. He was really interested in me...possibly because I was wearing bright colors? Not sure. Whatever the reason, Todd said that he is usually pretty antisocial and never takes to new people. However, he became my new BFF and frequently tried to kiss my cheek. He stayed on my shoulder for quite some time...and it was fun! Until he started eating my sweater. Then he went back into the special room.
Poodle love. The poodle's name is Forrester. I like that.
Here's the special animal room. How weird is that? Really neat, though.
Cousins...these are my first cousins Hanna and Alexa. With me, of course, in the middle.
Aaaaaaand...then we left Florida and went to Savannah. It was NOT warm there...not sure what happened there. Savannah weather FAIL! But it was beautiful, as always, and dressed up for Christmas. I could live here.
Matt and me at Forsyth Park, in front of the fountain. Love.

And that's it! I didn't take any photos in Nashville...but we were only there for one night. We naturally went to Pancake Pantry (yummmmmmmmmmy), which made me very happy!

Their dog Macy brought a special Christmas treat to the door...an entire deer leg. GROSS, but extremely funny.
That night at my MIL's house...Santa came to visit Cooper!
Here's a shot of the adult tree. My MIL always does two trees - one in the front for the adults, and one in the back for the kids. I forgot to get a shot of the kid tree but it looked pretty ridiculous, just like this one. Presents everywhere! Here's Oscar, trying to find his presents.
Christmas day: Cooper's t-shirt. Love it!
This is my niece Jessie. How fun is her hair??! I love it!
The kids opening presents...Jessie got an Elmo bathrobe that she was pretty darn excited about!
Older sister Jaylanne got a monkey bathrobe. They are too cute.
Jessie opening the gift of the year: an Elmo sleeping bag! I had never seen her so excited...there was a lot of jumping up and down and screaming involved, but it's hard to catch that on camera.
Jaylanne also got a good one - a new bike!
My MIL spoiled me as usual with lots of new clothes...and a U of M snuggie!!!!!
Oscar ended up with a new kitty. This one is called "Awful Mad Kitty."
His favorite toys, side by side. Please note the amount of wear that "Big Mean Kitty" has on the right.
We had a wonderful Christmas, and got up early the next morning to go to Florida! I have a few photos from the trip that I will probably post tomorrow.
