~ After a bit of begging, Luke agreed to go out for lunch after church on Sunday. It is always a huge blessing when I don't have to worry about cooking!
~Sunday night our church hosted the Young and Alive, a show choir from the high school where I graduated. I was in Y&A too, so it's always fun for me to watch them!
~On Tuesday I got my hair cut. I just got a few inches taken off. I'm still a little unsure of whether I like it or not...it didn't turn out exactly how I was picturing (the layering in the back is kind of weird), but I'm sure it will look better when it grows out a bit.
~ Later Tuesday night I got a call from my mom, asking if I could fill in at their card club. I did, and it was fun! I was totally exhausted afterwards though because I had subbed all day and spent an hour or so at the salon. I was ready to get in my warm, comfy bed after that evening!
~ On Wednesday I got to spend the whole afternoon shopping for library books for the church library. Always fun to buy books with someone else's money ;-)
~ Thursday evening I went out with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law to see Luke's cousin perform part of the Christmas show she was in. It was so good! She is very talented :-)
~ After a busy day of subbing on Friday, I went out with my parents and some family friends to go see the new Sherlock Holmes movie. It was so good! I thought it was even better than the first one. Loved it!
~We were busy all day Saturday with the Wallace Christmas party. We spent a lot of time eating good food and catching up with family members we only see a few times a year. At one point, somehow the "adult children" (aka the 20-somethings) ended up with this kids activity book where you had to find hidden objects in a picture (Where's Waldo style). Umm, I think we enjoyed it a little too much. Ha! We spent a good 45 minutes huddled around, locating objects. Because we're cool like that.
~Saturday night I hung out with Sarah. we talked, watched Inception, (one of the best movies of all time) and admired her family's ginormous Christmas tree :-) It was a fun night. And it was snowing!!! finally! So that was great, too :-)
I can't believe Christmas is just a week away! I have to be honest: I am nowhere near as ready as I would like to be. But I refuse to panic. My goal is to enjoy the season this year :-)
