I think this is cause for a celebration.
In fact, it's the start of our winter break.
I put my hands up, they're playing my song...
This break could not come soon enough, I am so thankful for the time off.
I did kick arse on my last exam, scoring 100%. Really amped that happened and now I start break after tonight's late training ride.
Downloaded song of the week
Obsessed with this song and highly recommend adding it to your playlist for the repeatability (that's not a word...) factor. I play songs over and over again, so if I can stand them with a 100+ play count, they're probably pretty good. I'll try to put together a wonderful collection of holiday favorites over the weekend, just in case you need to make a playlist for your Christmas dinner.
Speaking of Christmas dinner, what are y'all making?
I'm thinking of making a turkey dinner for Christmas Eve and then steaks for Christmas Day. I lurve turkey. Holy deliciousness.
So far we've sent out 67 cards and have 13 left over to send out to family and friends- I know, so many Christmas cards! I actually had to order two different sets. My favorite cards of the year are photo cards, just because I love to see so many shining faces. So our first set were a more traditional open and fold card and the second set a flat photo card (both featured family photos). The first 40 ran out so quickly and then I still had a ton of people to send them to, which I don't mind at all because sending and receiving anything in the mail (apart from bills) is so fun. I don't think snail mail will ever die because of that. I bet the U.S. postal service is having a field day with Christmas. Every single time I'm there (which admittedly is rarely) it's crowded. I try to buy stamps at our base exchange to avoid the lines and even going to the post office but I did have to go there to mail a package and pick one up. How did I avoid mailing Christmas packages while being miles away from my FamBam? An Amazon Prime account. I get free two day shipping, so I would have my family members tell me what they would want and whambamthankyama'am, they sent back to Wisco in a few days. I also heavily utilized Etsy, but who doesn't love Etsy? If anything, it's a beautiful inspiration board, just like Pinterest.
Ermahgerd guys, I almost forgot that my Pampered Chef Cookie Press came in from eBay! I grew up with one and I use to make so many Spritz cookies for the holidays. It's on like Donkey Kong tonight as I, hopefully, will be able to make a ton. The plan is to package some for our neighbors as a friendly, "thanks for being awesome."
Enjoy this weekend leading up to the big day!
