Ghosts of Pictures PastJanuary 7, 2010
It’s not a Wordless Wednesday because a lot of these pictures are old, but I still wanted to share.
I had an incredible holiday with my boyfriend and cat. And with my family and his of course but there aren’t any pictures of that.
That first Christmas together is a big thing I think for a lot of people. This was my first with any one and the ManBear made certain it was spectacular (whether on purpose or because he is just that good I couldn’t tell you). He wins at Christmas.
I don’t like being the girl who brags about what she got for Christmas but holy shit I got some awesome things. ManBear got me a hand mixer after being all coy when I was like I THINK IMMA BUY MYSELF A HAND MIXER IN JANUARY OR THE FEB and he was all OH YA!? HOW MUCH ARE THOSE? LOTS? and then I was like NOT TOO MUCH BUT IT WILL MEAN I CAN BAKE MORE WHICH WILL BE NICE YOU KNOW? and he’s like YEAH OK but he had already bought me a hand mixer (ITS BLACK AND I LOVE IT) so he said he was all laughing inside and shit.
ANYWAY. He got me a hand mixer. And a painting in the bathroom at my salon that I had been in love with and went to see if it was still there but it was gone so i couldn’t buy it for myself (please note: this was like MONTHS AGO) and i was all bummed but thought nothing of it and then I opened the last present from the man and KAPOW! The painting! (It’s of a giraffe. i LOVE giraffes – we are both awkward creatures with long necks) and i cried cause it was the painting i wanted and he had gone and gotten it for me after I only mentioned it once in passing.
HOW GOOD IS THIS GUY PEOPLE!?
(In comparison I got him a pair of shoes and some erasers shaped like peanuts. (AWWW YISSSS. Thats the stuff. (Hostess.)))
Anywho, we had a tree and stockings (I made his with the help of Jenny Grace and her sweet Gabey) and ornaments for the year and Ichabod got a cup of chicken and liver with gravy that he diarrhea-ed all over the middle of the living room while we were gone and despite that, it was one of the best Christmases ever.
(ALSO MY DAD GOT ME A SWEET PINK LAPTOP THATS BEING CALLED PINKBOT I AM USING HER AS I WRITE SHE HAS A BUILT IN CAMERA AND IS PINK AND HAS A CARD READER AND HOLY SHIT I LOVE HER)
And now its the new year, and i cant wait to see what it brings us.
(NO WHAMMIES NO WHAMMIES NO WHAMMIES)
I apologize for this terrible picture of me but it’s actually one of the better ones that were taken that morning…
I would like to point out that the terrifying reindeer the Miss Grace and I “made” is under the tree.
Jesse got stickers for on our Calendar! (more on THAT ONE later)
(more pictures can be seen on my Flickr)
OH OH OH OH OH!
P.S. Shred 2 Day 2 a success. My legs are really sore but it was much easier to get through this time. Plus we measured before hand so I know that my bust is a 36 and my waist is a 29 and my hips are a 39 which yeah, pretty much just proves that I’m shaped weird.
(AWWW YISSS LOOKIT THOSE MUTHA FECKIN GUNNNNSSSSZZZZZ)
After (LITERALLY DIRECTLY AFTER):
(EVEN MORE GUNTASTIC THAN BEFORE. kinda.)
Much better than yesterday if I do say so myself. and I do. ‘Cause its my blog and I said so. I said that I could say so myself so I said it I NEED TO GO TO SLEEP NOW.
