Bling and the Elderly

Some of my dearest friends came to visit last weekend. It is not often that I get to host people at my house who are not related to me so I spent the entire night before and morning of their arrival cleaning. The minute they arrive we broke out snacks and wine and everything was a mess again. But I wouldn't have it any other way!

There was lots of laughter, wine, bling and iphone apps that show you what you will look like in 2060.
I don't know how it could possibly be the last day of January. Time flies when you're having fun. Or, time flies when you work full time, go to graduate school full time and try to maintain a glimmer of a social life.

I took down all of our holiday decorations last week. I wish I could say it was a simple process, but I'd be lying. Putting my ordainments in a box brought on an intense hormonal meltdown. 

The one thing I couldn't bare to put away were all of the sweet cards and pictures sent by our family and friends. 
These are a wonderful reminder that even though we live so far from many of these people, we are so blessed.

And, to cheer me up post holiday anxiety attack, we've been playing lots and lots of duck hunter on the wii. We're making sure Missouri keeps it's hoosier name!

Tomato Tomatoe

Tomorrow it's back to work- which means I have to actually brush my hair and take off my sweatpants. I've been looking a little rough around the edges the past few days.

But until then I'm enjoying my last day of lazily perusing blogs and eating leftover Christmas candy.

Here are a few pictures from our Christmas 2.0 {not to be confused with Christmas 1.0}
I took the week between Christmas and New Years off from work so JJ and I could go skiing- but his dark passenger {that is my Dexter speak for his job} got in the way so I went to Mexico instead. He stayed at home and worked and I laid in the sun and sipped on drinks with little umbrellas in them.
And in case you think I'm the worst wife ever, let me remind you that husband travels all the time to fun places like Chicago and New Orleans without me. He is, however, working during those trips. Tomato Tomatoe.
