Plummeting Productivity and a Tan for Christmas

FRIDAY! FRIDAY! FRIDAY! Oh how happy I am to see you! And now this day just needs to speed by (at least till noon) so I can be off work for the next 11 days! Needless say my productivity level today is already plummeting at great speed.
My life :)
Seems about right.

Moving on...Christmas Eve/Christmas is now only 8 DAYS away and I am SO in the spirit here at work with my jingle bell necklace and headband, along with my Hanson Holiday Pandora station. I am very ready for all the Holiday festivities to commence.

I also am so incredibly excited about being home. I haven't spent an extended period of time back home since....well, probably freshman year during Christmas. I have never been one of those super homey people, but I can't wait to be back in Bridge City all week. One of my oldest and best friends, Ashley B. (See Stars in my Sky) is having a "White Elephant" party on Monday night with some other wonderful ladies and I can't wait to see her and her GIANT rock beautiful engagement ring she got from her fiancĂ© a couple of weeks ago. Tuesday I am having a much needed and way overdue Housewife (again, see Stars in my Sky) date. Pedicures, Lunch, Gossip, some form of alcohol=Perfection. Tuesday night I also get to get my hair done back home. Now I am sure you're wondering what is so special about getting my hair done, especially when I live in a city filled with outstanding beauty salons? Well because when I go get my hair colored, I pay nearly 100 dollars, JUST FOR COLOR. Now when I go home, I can pay 70 dollars for color, cut, and style. You see my reason for excitement now? Yeah buddy (In Vinnie from Jersey Shore's voice. Jersey Shore Returns in January! #gulitypleasure) As for the rest of the week, not much else planned except for some margaritas one night and hitting up the casino with my Grandpa (yeah, you heard me right) and of course Church on Christmas Eve along with other Christmas fun.

Now I have never been one to complain about the different seasons. I mean I kind of think Spring and fall are a bit lame because they are kind of like the filler seasons, but I really enjoy them all. HOWEVER, my one complaint about the cold winter months (As in December-February in Texas) I get MEGA pale. I, being a blonde with blue eyes, enjoy having a nice sun-kissed glow and unless I want to hop into the cancer tanning bed or want to catch phenomia laying out in 50 and below degree weather I am, you would say, sh*t out of luck. Also, if you know me (P.S. I am going to do a blog listing all the times I use the line "If you know me", I say that way too much) you know I am very much a beach person who loves the whole "parrot head" state of mind. So with all that being said, I want to share with you my Christmas Jam of the day. I hope some of you can appreciate it as much as I did.

Stay warm Dolls, and have a very merry weekend. :)


  1. I love that you gamble with your Grandpa, that is so cute :)

  2. I know what you mean about the pale-ness. Although I may do a little mystic before the wedding in February... and hurry home, I'll miss you!! :)

  3. Kelli, yeah, it's pretty awesome. :)

    Marina, I am definitely going to do something before the wedding! And I will miss you! I'll be back before you know it. :)
