saturday | december 15:
but thankfully i started feeling better around 2 and was able to pretty myself up for a birthday dinner with matt. we walked around downtown auburn and took some fun pictures before we got to the restaurant.
after appetizers and lots of water, our friends surprised me by showing up for dinner and the show. matt finally surprised me!! he had me thinking that none of our friends could make it and little did i know that he was planning the surprise the whole time. what a sneaker!
i was sooo happy to have my friends there! love that us gals and our guys all love to hang out. such good folks!
the band sang me a hilarious birthday song before the show and then invited me on stage to sing one of my favorite songs! the video is here. but let me warn you, it’s not about any singing, just more about dancing and woo-woo-wooing. BEST.BIRTHDAY.EVER.
sunday | december 16:
of course, even though the boys stayed with grama and grampa, i still get up at the crack of dawn.
monday | december 17:
this is sooooooo matt and i.
needed to go to the PO today, the line is crazy long. but i used the self-service kiosk thing and will NEVER stand in line again!
running errands tonight and gibson took money from his own wallet to give. sure made him feel good and melted my heart.
it’s official. i’m in the finals!
tuesday | december 18:
got some new flower clips from michael’s and tried them with today’s outfit. cute?
thursday | december 20:
an early drive into the valley for a client meeting. i drive with my boss so much that he doesn’t even question my picture taking anymore.
tried to get some snapshots of him looking handsome, this is what i got. i’ll take it!
friday | december 21:
today was an insane day at work. lots of end of year and end of month deadlines plus our christmas lunch, plus another client meeting. it’s been an incredibly stressful week full of 11 hour days and being pulled in a hundred directions.
i am thankful for my job but am glad that i got as much done as i could so i can enjoy the next 5 days at home.
i also did my nails tonight with some new nail stickers from jamberry. tawnya got me the red and white houndstooth! it’s super gorgeous!
so wow, that happened. i am going to capture as much as i can over the next week. wanting to enjoy the family and all the festivities, i won’t be doing another update until next year. i do have a couple posts scheduled but i’m going off the bloggy radar for a bit. looking into how to improve my blog and where i want it to go in twenty-thirteen.
thanks to all my wonderful readers who visit and comment. it’s been a fun year!
merry christmas to you all!!
