Hi ya! It’s the last Wednesday of the year, my friends! I’m pretty focused on straightening up my house and keeping up with my work load and visiting with my baby brother while he’s home so I didn’t prep much for today… so how about some confessions??
(Linking up with Laura, Lauren, Kathy, and Nadine, of course!)
I am already planning 2016’s Halloween Party. I have the theme, date, and tentative guest list done. #WantAHint? #Let’sPartyLikeIt’s1999
I will have amazing hair when I become an old lady. First of all, my hair is already turning a metallic grey color. Secondly, when I let it air dry it gets all fluffy and old lady-like. #OldLadyFrenchTwists #GoingGreyAt25 #HairGoals
Sometimes I catch myself sitting really weird… Like, chest out and my chin up. Or my chin down and I’m looking up with my eyes at the screen. Or my head is sideways… #WhyCan’tIAccidentallyHaveGoodPosture? #NoWonderMyBackHurts
So… on Monday I realized our electric bill was due so I very calmly logged onto the website and paid the +$2 fee to make an instant payment. I was feeling good until I remembered that I’d already sent in the payment last Wednesday. Oops. #ChristmasBrain #I’veGotNextMonthCoveredIGuess #Dammit
A few nights ago my dad, my brother, and I got into a heated political/religious debate. It’s so confusing how my dad (& mom) raise two people who have totally different beliefs from each other AND our parents… (K and my mom
safely silently sat in the living room with their phone/iPad.) #AtLeastWeAllRejectTrump #ItEndedPeacefully #WhatHappenedToTheDaysWhenIWasTheControversialOne? #MyBrotherHasMeBeat
And now some Christmas confessions…
As the day progressed I got some amazing gifts and I was happy with everything, but I was especially looking for the illustrated HP and the Sorcerer’s Stone. When it didn’t show up under our tree or my parents’ tree I was a little sad… but then my mother-in-law gifted it to me! #Yaaaaaas #HappyChristmasHarry #BestMILEver
I played Star Wars Monopoly on Christmas against my teenage cousins and my grandma… I dominate that galaxy, guys. I even held back a little and still dominated. #RealEstateMogul #JustCallMeTrump #ButActuallyDon’t
Let’s pretend like humility doesn’t exist for a hot second… I feel like the mother-loving Queen of Gifts this year. I bought my husband the cymbals he’s been wanting, I sent my niece and nephews their official Hogwarts letters, and I outfitted my brother and his fiancee with niffy, often-forgotten cooking and baking tools. #QueenOfChristmas #IKnowThat’sNotWhatIt’sAbout #ButILoveToSeeTheirFacesLightUp
I also got my father-in-law a Gryffindor quidditch bathroom… #BestDaughterInLawEver #ItWasTheOnlyHouseLeft #ButHe’sABraveGryffindor
Did you guys see the moon halo/rainbow/ring on Christmas?? #What’sTheOfficialName? #ItWasPrettyNeat
My Christmas tree died halfway through December… #CarpetOfNeedles #ISwearIWateredIt #IKillPlants #It’sComingDownToday #Dammit
But I will never surrender to the fake tree. #RealTrees4ever
How about some of my favorite holiday photos?
And now we’re on the eve of NYE! Enjoy the last two days of 2015, guys!!
