Friday night I came home to the absolute perfect scene. Flowers, strawberry drinks, a bottle of wine on ice and dinner plans made. It was our 6 year anniversary (Facebook Official). I really can't say enough nice things about Bret, and then he goes and is even more sweet. :)
|Not so sweet.|
Are those lights or glaring cat eyes?
December has been a good month so far in our household. I just need to find time to finish watching all of the reality show finales. Those extra hours really add up! I am still not done with Survivor, but luckily haven't been spoiled yet...which is pretty good in my book. Ashely & JP's wedding is still on the back burner. No spoliers there; I am fairly certain they just have fun and get married. I did catch the end of Amazing race though...
Amazing Race Finale
Speaking of good challenges. This last episode a few great ones! The final one was definitely a challenge. Very sneaky of the AR developers to use a similar format where they incorporate something from each country visited, but in a whole new (and very difficult) way. It was totally a process of elimination and I think I would have attacked it like the Beekman Boy did, but with everything on the line at the end of the race, I may have crumbled like Lexi too. Great ending challenge!
The other standout cool challenge was the Houdini escape challenge. Even the clue to get the challenge was good!
I was perusing the Beekman Boys website the other day and found their blog. They seem like really nice guys and very inspiring to boot!
Back to the Sweater thing...
I decided to where a slightly festive sweater the other day. 'Tis the season, right? The sweater is bright forest green with some cabling and is about 3 years old from Old Navy. Very comfy and definitely office appropriate (win-win). The weather is too warm to wear it anywhere outside, but my I am usually cold in AC so it worked. I digress again!
So, I walked into a meeting room and somebody blurted out..."Is that your ugly Christmas sweater?" Crickets....
I didn't know what to say. I think I said something about it being very bright green. Then someone else tried to fill the silence by commenting on their gray polo. We had a laugh about it later, but yikes, awkward! Some people just don't have filters. I wasn't planning to to retire the green sweater yet, but may need to reconsider. :( What do you think?
|Yea or Neigh?|
Yes. I live in the south but am still very, very pale. I actually don't own a strictly "ugly" sweater for Christmas parties. I guess I am covered now!
