Between the shopping, the baking, the Christmas movies and a holiday party it was quite the festive few days over here. Friday night after we put our grumpy baby to bed (#teethingprobz) Jared and I made the most of a date night in starting with a few rounds of our on-going rummy game. In case you haven't heard me mention it, we're playing one continuous game and tallying it until someone gets to one million points. Sitting by the the tree with tunes on the record player apparently threw me off my game though because Jared dominated. Thank goodness we still have a long way to go.
That same night I chose It's a Wonderful Life for our movie and was super stoked to watch it because I felt like it had been a few years since I had. So IMAGINE MY SURPRISE when about 20 minutes into the movie Jared tells me HE'S NEVER SEEN IT. What?! I legitimately had to pause the movie and question him, his childhood and his life motives for a few minutes. Once I got over the shock, we continued and Jared ended up absolutely loving the movie. I mean, how could you not?
Saturday I baked all day long with my sister-in-law and her aunt and grandma. This is the third year they've hosted a baking day now and I'm happy to be included in this little tradition. All the treats turned out dangerously good so if you'd like to come help me eat them please feel free. Otherwise I will eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the next week!
To round out my weekend, I attended a small get together at the home of the photographers I'm now working for part-time. They invited the team over and I was thrilled to be included, considering I've only worked for them for a couple of months. We enjoyed snacks, more delicious cookies and easy conversation. It's truly a blessing to have this job and I'm excited about the long-term potential as well. They are good people with good hearts and I feel fortunate to be part of their business and their vision.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of holiday cheer!
