Christmas Cheer!

Sunday night after Christmas at my parents house Matt and I, Marissa and my cousin AKA the Birthday Girl got to go cheer on the Thunder at the Season opener! Thunder Up!
We were all very excited and thankful that my parents decided to stay home and give the 4 of us their season tickets for the night!
There is nothing like a Thunder Pre-Game and then while we wait for players come out Okc fans go crazy! This video captures our tradition of clapping, cheering and not taking a seat until we make our first basket it So fun! Now this video is awful quality but this is the arena waiting for the game opening jump ball......

Our boys came back.....better, stronger, faster and ready to go ALL the way! Thunder UP!
Awe.....I LOVED Santa Rumble! The people in the seats behind us said "look its the bull" No friends.......he is a BISON! hehehe
Marissa and Brittany fueling up on popcorn to give them energy to cheer on our team!
Most games Matt is at work so it is just me going to the games with my family, so it is always nice when Matt gets to come along!!!!
Yo.....KD! I just LOVE Kevin Durant!! On Christmas Eve he drove around (he drives a mini van and that is not a joke) he drove around OKC tweeting his location and when people found him he gave out his signature gold #35 Nikes in gold that he is wearing in this game. He is such a nice person!
And boy I LOVED the girls in their cute Santa outfits they looked so pretty! Now as for their dance? Not so much but they are so fun to look at!!!
We WON! Which was the perfect day to end Christmas!

Movie Mania!!!

Are you ready for this???? I watched a few, just a few movies this weekend. I wanted to share my thoughts about them with you.....maybe you care/maybe you don't! LOL!! I have these listed in order of worst to best. So let's start.............

Abduction with Taylor Lautner!
Ok, I remember wanting to see this in the theater and I was excited to finally be able to rent this movie....and well, the excitement stopped there. Here is all you need to know about this boring movie....
Taylor Lautner can do a roundhouse kick, he takes his shirt off, he can punch, he can jump high, he makes out on a train. There is something having to do with a phone and "secret numbers" but you are never told anything else. I have no idea what this movie was about and my review is.......wait until it airs on like TBS in 5 years.....you are missing NOTHING!
Rise of Planet of the Apes
So I was very nervous to rent this movie and that is why I didn't see it in the theater.....why? I know these animals are all CG but regardless I do not like ANY mistreatment of animals in movies. And I will say this is a good movie, a good concept but if you have a tender heart like me then this is SUCH a Debbie Downer of a movie. Really, I thought it was so depressing. Long story short these animals are mistreated.....they get mad and smart....then fight back. Very sad all around! Moving on...................
We Bought a Zoo!
Let me start by saying man o man I WISH I could buy a Zoo!!!! This movie is PG but it was SOO much more than a kid movie watching this family restore a zoo. This movie had heart, soul, humor and was utterly cute! Matt Damon's character lost his wife,  he moves his kids to get a new start ..hence the house with a zoo. Watching him struggle to let go of his wife, move on and help his kids heal is herartbreaking. But this was the perfect day after Christmas movie! You really should go and see this! SOOO cute!
Here is the perfectly cute trailer...........

And finally.......we made it to my #1 pick: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
While I talk about this I wanted to share the "warning" for this movie with you so you can keep this in mind, if you ran out to see it based on me saying so and you were not prepared for a few of the scenes then you will be shocked! So please read this.........................
 Warning: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (2011) is not for kids or the faint of heart, its rated R – what I like to call a “hard R” because of things that make it borderline NC-17.  The MPAA lists the reason for GWTDT’s “R” as: “brutal violent content including rape, sexual assault and torture, strong sexuality, graphic nudity, and language”.
Now, with that out of the way this movie was amazing. Amazing because the story was told so well, nothing out of the book was missed and in fact for me this cleared up so much....the book is SO in depth I found myself getting lost and seeing this come to life on the screen actually makes me want to pick up and read the sequel. This was amazing because of these two people below..........they were perfection. I could NOT believe how much this beautiful Rooney Mara became Lisbeth Slander, it was incredible. I mean this movie is one of those movies where the backdrop, the acting and even the transformation and look of the actors is truly a work of art. Two scenes I was worried about were very hard to watch on screen and Matt was a little shocked..........The director does not shy away either, you see everything and for maybe longer than makes you feel comfortable. Ha, it is so weird after saying that to say how great this movie is.....it has stuck with me, here 4 days later and I can't get it out of my head. If you have seen this or will go see it....let me know, I want to hear what you thought!!!!!
Here is the trailer.....the song is perfection for this dark movie....................

SANTA!

Are you ready for picture overload???? I can not believe that Christmas has already came and went this year! For me, it never even felt like Christmas....it was weird this year! Matt and I went back and forth between our two families this weekend and we had a wonderful time! But do you feel like you need a Holiday from your Holiday????
Pile of presents at my parents..............who wants to dive in?
Betsy has decided that she is in love with Matt.....can I blame her? My parents dog never left Matts side and he gave her all sorts of extra attention! She was over the moon, she is chewing on a Santa that Matt and I got her for Christmas!
My mom has opened one of the presents from Matt and I ......a new JCrew necklace! I love their jewelry, everyone should have at least something from there! She already wore the necklace on Monday!
Marissa and her "stash"...she opened up a Durant Thunder Jersey and a bracelet set from JCrew in Thunder colors from Matt and I!!!
Oh ya.....this is happening.....they are giving each other "goggly eyes"! And they call it.....puppy love!!
Matty and I heading out the door on our way to Edmond to celebrate Christmas Eve with his family..........in case you were wondering the "Cranberry Salsa" I posted last week that I was making for Matt's family get together.....was amazing!!!!!!
And boom......here we are about to open presents with his family after church!
Here is all the Savage ladies..............my sister-in-laws Jenn, Colby(the bride to be) and my mother-in-law Micki!
Present time!!! Some things we got (from both families) I got a new JCrew Jacket, Old Navy Jacket, Matt got a nice Norelco shaver, Apple I-TV, Gift certificates, $$, kitchen stuff.....etc! It was great but like I always say....I love giving more than receiving!
Fast Forward to Christmas day at my parents house........this is my cousin Brittany and my sis! Merry Christmas! We are just missing one person my brother who is somewhere on deployment! He sure was missed!
A typical picture for Matt and I.............. cheese! You can never have too many, can you? And ya, do you like the pictures behind us? That blonde......is ME! that is my Sr. Picture! lol!
Sisters, Sisters............. I love that song from White Christmas!
Betsy chewing on another one of her Christmas presents! This is her very first Christmas, we are so lucky to have her!
Marissa made this handmade frame for Brittany as her Christmas gift........very thoughtful! It is a picture of all of us from last years Christmas!
Cheese.............Matt hates being the center of attention! LOL
I got a mini cupcake maker and Red Velvet mix! You know I love anything kitchen related!!!! Yumm!
And Christmas is also another special day in our family...........Happy Birthday Brittany!!!! #22!!!!!!
Hope your Christmas was as wonderful as ours was! The only negative? I had a migraine every single day....and I woke up with one today too. I sure hope I can kick this awful cycle soon....I would love to enjoy this coming 4 day weekend more so than this last (health wise)!!!

And here we are 6 years later......I am so glad I mustered up the courage to ask Matt out (since he was too chicken to do the same)!! I love you Matt and I am looking forward to many many more years.......our future is bright!

Family Photos.....

So back in October I mentioned having family pictures taken, my mom wanted us all together before Curtis deployed. Well I will say Rachelle James takes beautiful pictures, they turned out 100% amazing! You can visit her website by clicking HERE!
Now onto the bad.........these "previews" below were just posted on FB yesterday by Rachelle for us to see and this my friends is all I will see of them. I was not even able to buy 1 picture not even a 5x7 because she is so expensive. It is heartbreaking and not her fault, ours. I will not even be able to use these pictures on a Christmas card or even on my blog! (other than this initial post which I may be in trouble for) What she charges for "digital use" for ONE picture I could buy 1/2 of my Christmas presents again. Why did we use her? Well my mom had a friend in Sunday School use her and their pictures were amazing so we jumped on the bandwagon. Rachelle was so nice and they turned out stunning.....I just can't afford anything!
Here is the "preview"............




And my favorite.....I am able to use this on my facebook with her watermark, thank goodness.....but I love this picture! Wish I could use it more, this was going to be our Christmas card picture but we can't afford it!
Just wanted to share my family with you all!

What I'm Loving Wednesday....

 HI friends.........Happy Wednesday before Christmas!!! Can not believe the big Holiday weekend is literally 1 day away! (Fri-Mon)!!!!

* I am loving my Christmas present to myself.........my new JCrew Italian ballet flats! love em...the design is so stylish!
 * I am in charge of appetizers for Saturday nights Christmas Eve at my In-Laws and I thought I would share what I am bringing! The first is from the Pioneer Woman and it is goat cheese rolled in fresh dill or paprika served with Wheat Thins! I am going to actually combine both into one! (I tried it, it's good)
 Second I am going to make this Cranberry Salsa that is served over cream cheese! Yumm and they both use Wheat Thins which makes it easy!! To see the recipe click HERE!
 * I am loving this Blue blazer from Piper Lime! I swear Piper Lime is like porn for fashion! Love it.....just wish I could afford things on that site! I imagine this blazer with my new JCrew shoes.....I can dream!
 * I am loving the 2 Christmas presents Matt gave me yesterday (besides the IPad 2).......I got the new Giada De Laurentiis complete Knife set! I bought one of her knifes a while back and loved it, so I am excited to get the set!
 And a major surprise to me is this watch!!! The Coach Gold Boyfriend Watch!!! I had no idea and I did not give him any hint at all....this was all on him! I love it! So excited to wear it, just need to get 1 link taken out!
* I am loving my two Pinterest finds that are new to my "Wise Words" boards..................
 Both are so true.......
 * I love love love these necklaces! The only hard part is deciding on the script and color! Which is your fav? I was thinking about doing NSM (Nicole Savage Matt) combining our initials instead of my initials which are NAS? Thoughts? You can get your own by clicking HERE!
* Ok do this for me....... Google "Moore Warren Balcony" and then click on images and see what comes up!!! I did this today while looking for pictures to use on blog posts and then saw that a picture of me and my friend Becky comes up as one of the first pictures and I about died! HAHA.....I guess I post about the Warren so much that my blog is one of the first search items! hahaha.....how silly!

What are you loving today?
