I Made It!

One 12-day stretch of work is DONE.... well, almost, depending on when you're reading this. I survived and cannot wait for this weekend. We kicked it off last night with my work party where we ate some delicious food, took a picture with Santa and got to pet the live reindeer! Tonight Jared and I have a hot date planned downtown that we've been looking forward to for months. We've got reservations for dinner and then we'll be seeing the amazing Trans-Siberian Orchestra!! This is actually their final tour ever, so I'm sure it'll be even more entertaining than last year, which was already incredible.

The rest of this weekend we hope to get the remainder of our shopping done, get our Christmas cards in the mail and cross off a few other activities from our Christmas bucket list. They're calling for a little more snow this weekend, and this is one of the times I actually wouldn't mind if we end up getting snowed in. As long as I don't have to drive in it or sit on the highway in it for hours, I'm okay with a little white fluff.

On a different note, my 75-year-old Pappy is having surgery today that could possibly take up to 6+ hours. I'd appreciate any prayers you've got. Surgery is never easy, but I know he's a trooper and will do just great. I'm sure by Christmas Eve he'll be rocking silly hats and a tie and laughing it up :)
That's him in the middle-- isn't he adorable? :)

That's all for today, friends. I feel completely 'behind' in the blog world but hope to catch up a lot this weekend. Plus, I have some extra fun stuff planned for the rest of this month that I'm really excited to share with you all! Happy Weekend!!!

  20. Sending lots and lots of prayers for your Grandfather. I've had my fair share of long surgeries and I know that you probably aren't think of this now, but as soon as he is able to get up and start walking (when the Doctors advise him to), be sure that you and the rest of the family encourage him to as much as possible-- that makes all the difference in the world as far as recovery goes. Enjoy your weekend and keep us all updated on your sweet Grandfather! XOXO
