Holiday Acapella

How can you not appreciate this? Even if just for all the cute guys in tuxes!

Some photos for you to enjoy of the coldest game of golf I've ever played.

Firstly - look how fetching I am in my golf attire! The hat is really just there to cover up my unwashed hair:

Here is my golf swing - don't I look like I might actually remember how to play?

My Dad and Bro tee'ing off:

The Boyfriend figured out my dirty little secret very early in the game - my most favorite thing about golf is driving the golf carts! Here are some photos I took while claiming the right to drive the cart:

Here is The Boyfriend showing off his multi-tasking skills:

And finally, here I am at the end of our 18 holes, hoping I will be able to warm up sometime within the next few days.

An Open Letter to the Girl I Almost Ran Over on Friday Night:

Here's a bit of advice - if you are going to go running when it is pitch dark outside, it would be wise to dress in lighter colors so that when you are running across an intersection that has no streetlights, cars won't accidentally almost run you over.

I am so sorry that I scared you. But seriously? Are you stupid?

YOU ARE RUNNING AT NIGHT WEARING ALL DARK CLOTHES. How in the hell am I supposed to see you? I mean, I didn't really come close to running you over, but I obviously scared you (for which I am sincerely sorry) but you also scared me too. How do you think I would feel if I DID run you over?

Common sense. That's all I'm asking. If you go running at night in an area that is not well-lit, you should probably make sure cars can see you easily. That, or stay away from busy intersections.

Sincerely -

A Photo Essay -

I think I might have mentioned that it was cold. How cold you ask? Let me show you...

Those are frozen roses, by the way.

Also, we got to play with 2 of the cutest and friendliest dogs in the known universe -


And Mochi

(Mochi is the one not wearing a hat)

Seriously, those dogs were just too cute. I wanted to squeeze them all the time.

Also, I gave The Boyfriends niece her very first haircut. Let me tell you, you have never experienced nervousness until you are holding sharp scissors next to a very cute 1 year olds face.

Sorrel before -

Sorrel after - (yes, she's holding a baggy of her hair. She thought it was funny)

And finally - this is one of the best ways to pass the time between Thanksgiving dinner and dessert.

I couldn't fall asleep last night. Let me rephrase that. I couldn't stay asleep last night. I really hate it when that happens.

And it happens to me a lot. Always on Sunday night. I don't know if it's because I know I have to work in the morning or because The Boyfriend and I took a 3 hour nap Sunday afternoon - all I know is that sleep was just not happening.

And I like sleep. I'm really really good at it. So when it goes wrong, I just don't know what to do. I have no coping mechanism for this.

We had a really fun weekend. Got to hang out and watch a lot of movies. Our friend David took new headshots for us. Can't wait to get them back - we saw them quickly when we were done and they are amazing, per usual with anything David photographs. I usually get so nervous when I have pictures taken of me, so it helps a lot that I am so completely comfortable around David and Kathy and The Boyfriend, almost too comfortable as David had to tell me to stop talking a couple of times.

Afterwards we went to dinner and then to Pinkberry's - which was my very first time eating there. The Boyfriend and I got chocolate chips and kiwi on ours, a weird combination and yet very delicious.

We also did our first two runs since being back from Washington. The first one went well, although I am definitely hurting a bit from taking so much time off. I improved my time 30 seconds between Saturday and Sunday, so I should be back up to speed before the end of the week!
