The Weekend Diaries

Merry Christmas week, y'all! Going in to work today at 6:30 am is proving to be a tragedy in my life. Seriously guys, all I want to do is sleep in, drink hot coco and watch Christmas movies ALL day. Oh well, I guess that will have to wait until Wednesday. This weekend was jam packed with "Christmasy" activities. Lets kick it off with an ugly Christmas sweater party.


Friday was Jessie's 12th birthday, and that evening she was invited to one of her good friends Ugly Christmas sweater party. Now, every one of these parties I have ever been to, it's a competition of who has the ugliest sweater. So of course, me being the competitive person I am, went a little crazy with Jessie's Christmas sweater...

Epically tacky!

After dropping Jessie off at the party, Amy, Katie and I discovered this awesome house, that went all out with their Christmas decorations. 

After checking out the house, we went home for a relaxing evening, being lazy in front of the TV. 


Lazy day!I pretty much did nothing on Saturday during the day, as you can tell from this picture. 

This is what we call our "crazy, Saturday morning, hair picture."  

Saturday night, I decided to make myself human and go see The Hobbit with Bethany and her boyfriend, Joey. I had been putting off seeing the Hobbit due to the fact that it's the last movie of the series... I have been in love with The Lord of the Rings movies/books for 10 years. I have grown up with this fandom, and was absolutely heart broken to be watching the final movie... Needless to say, I pretty much went through a whole box of tissues... #uglycryalltheway In case you are wondering, the movie did not disappoint. Peter Jackson and each cast member did a phenomenal job. 

After getting home from the movie, I walked in to find my sweet little Amy running a 102.5 temperature. Poor little thing has the flu...  


Sunday, after church we had our Christmas dinner with my Nana! I'll let the pictures do the talking. 

The yummy food! 

Enjoying the food 

Funny story: Austin had gotten this hat for Christmas. Well, Brittany asked if she could try it on. After putting it on, she said, "Oh, now I'm a gangster" well Jessie said, "let me act like I'm afraid of you!" This was the masterpiece that was then created! I find it sooo funny! 

 Her facial expressions kill me



 So, the way to my heart is through sweat shirts and comfy pants...

 Poor baby!

 Nana loves the shirt!

 And mouse pad

 Showing off our new Christmas pins!

So, Jessie get's her stocking full of goodies. Well, one of the items inside is this fake hair, aka weave. Jessie pulls it out of her stocking and exclaims, "Oh my gosh Nana, You got me weave!" she was SO excited! She kept on and on, telling our grandmother thank you. Then she proceeds to say, "this is just unbeweaveable!" I lost it! Who thinks up stuff like that to say??? It was so incredibly funny!

After our Christmas party, the family decided to take a trip to see Christmas lights. But before we went, this girl need some caffeine to keep her going.

Praise God for Starbucks! 

Nothing like some Christmas lights to get you in the Holiday spirit!
