It’s been a while since I busted out the weekly woots and woofs, eh? Should you desire an explanation, I can give you one: I’ve been lazy peeps. Oh, and also pregnant. Soooooo there’s that. BUT this week just called for it, cuz I don’t know about you, but I’ve been missing them! So with no further adieu…
My mommy and sisters threw me the most lovely and adorable baby shower while I was in Boise for Thanksgiving. Woot!
^ These be my life-long besties. Aren’t they gorge? ^
^ And these are my beeeeeautiful sisters and momma. I freaking love these people. ^
Woot #2: NOVISTMAS!
Here’s the deal guys – my family is a little bit obsessed with Christmas. So obsessed in fact that we made up a holiday to allow us to start celebrating it early. We call it Novistmas. Traditions include: the men making the dinner, everyone composing a Novistmas carol and performing it, an ugly sweater contest complete with a catwalk session so we can show off our goods, a mini gift exchange, and an ‘airing of grievances’ where each person gets 15 seconds to whine like little girls about the problems in their lives. Then of course during all of that we lace in plenty of egg nog drinking and rice pudding pounding. It might sound weird, but I’m telling you guys – It. Is. Epic. Special thanks to Father Novistmas (my brother Trevor) for founding such a brilliant holiday. Here are some highlights!
Woot #3: Getting to eat CAFE RIO whilst in Boise.
Oh man – I could have died happy right after that meal.
Woot #5: Pics in front of Christmas trees with the man of my dreams.
And finally, HIM – the biggest Woot of my entire life.
* The fact that we’re already half way through December and it feels like it’s only been the Christmas season for 5 minutes! December should really be twice as long in my opinion. It goes by way, way too quickly. I love me some Christmas time!
* The latest pregnancy ailment: being woken up in my sleep with totally numb fingers and painful tingles all up my arm. Worst. Evs. Last night though, I said a little prayer and told God that if He wanted to make it a little less intense so that it wouldn’t wake me up, I would be totally fine with that. And He DID! There’s a God people – so help me there is.
* My bedroom – always, always a woof. Someday perhaps I’ll hire someone to fold my laundry. It’s the one thing between me and a sane, tidy life. And by one thing I mean one of the things. K one of the many things. Sigh.
* Having to sit at a stand-still on BART last night for over 20 minutes because of a mechanical problem on the train. Woof! (But can we talk about how nice people are to you when you’re prego? A lady had me come to the front of the line to board the train to make sure I got a seat. God bless kind, tender hearted folks like that. I’ve found that there’s a whole lot of them in the world, and I’m not even mad about it.)
Hope you have delightful, festive weekend plans!
And may your upcoming week be filled with way more Woots than Woofs.
