Well, I learned my lesson. I’ve been busying myself with Christmas preparations since last Friday in an attempt to avoid another last minute temper tantrum. I’ve also had some time for a few fun Christmasy activities.
Friday night we went out to dinner at Cypress in Walnut Creek.
I forgot we had eaten there before, which goes to show how much of an impression it made on me. I will remember this time. The food was great and the service was amazing. The chef even came out and talked to us. That was a first for me!
After dinner we saw A Christmas Carol. It was also good and a fun way to kick off “Christmas break.”
Jason took this picture before the show started, and I’m posting it for one reason only. It’s one of the better ones. (Yes, even with the bright white face and red eyes.)
Allow me to elaborate. Do you ever check out your blog stats? You know how it will tell you what search phrases lead people to your blog? Well I get the most hits from search terms like: elvis lip curl, elvis presley lip curl, elvis lip, lip curl, lip curl to side… you get the idea.
So I finally did a little Google image search, and guess what the second image is? Only the worst picture I’ve ever taken. Don’t ask me why I chose to post it on the internet (or link to it again for that matter). So I think it’s only fair that I get to post a picture just because I like it.
Saturday night we went to a Christmas party at a co-worker’s house. The only picture I managed to take was my weekly belly shot beforehand.
Last Thursday I mentioned something about, “before I leave,” in a meeting. Another co-worker asked me, “Where are you going?” I can’t remember what exactly I said, but I somehow referenced the baby. To which he replied, “You’re pregnant?!” The crazy thing was he was actually serious.
The funny thing is just the day before someone else asked me, “You’re only having one??” It’s amazing how many comments I get on my size. And it’s always one extreme or the other. I keep waiting for someone to say, “Wow! You look like you’re exactly the right size considering how pregnant you are!”
