Don't forget...

If you haven't already, don't forget to check out my new craft blog!


I'm still alive!

I dropped the ball on this one. I'm sorry! I have been putting a lot of time and effort into my craft blog and even that has been overwhelming. I'll try to update this one once a month, deal?

Love you!


PWC Busy Season Gala

I'm alive! I know, I'm such a slacker. You want to know what's sad? Part of the reason I'm deterred from updating this blog is because I don't feel like signing out of my other account, signing into this one, writing a post, and switching back. Boy am I lazy. But nonetheless, here I am. I have a few more posts coming soon, Valentine's Day and the Aquarium.

Last night David and I went to his "Busy Season Gala." It was literally a giant, Mardis Gras themed party for the whole company to celebrate the end of the busy season. A good reason to have a party, I must say. It's been nice to have David home at a decent hour. :) It was quite a fancy party! It was at a beautiful country club, it was over 100 years old and had such beautiful vintage charm. There was a live band, bowling, dinner bar, dessert bar, open bar, raffles, games, and dancing. It honestly was a lot like prom, everyone was in fancy dresses! Except this time, more than half the guests were drunk, at prom it was only a select few. :P

It was the first time I'd really been to a party like this before, I guess that shows how new I am to the "adult world." David and I had a lot of fun, I was able to meet some of his coworkers!

I think the most fun was the duck pink bowling, it was old fashioned bowling that had tiny little balls, tiny little pins, and you could have as many turns as you wanted! It was difficult to adjust to throwing a ball with no finger holes, but after a little bit I got the hang of it pretty well!

We mostly kept to ourselves and left without a single drink (I honestly got a glare from a bartender when I asked for a non alcoholic drink!), but all in all we had fun. I think the employees really deserved a fabulous party after working so hard these past few months!



So I'm starting to realize that trying to run two separate blogs is kind of difficult. But nonetheless, here I am trying. That counts...right?

Last week David officially started his internship at PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

It's the largest accounting firm in the world, so it's kind of a big deal that he's working there!

On his first day of work. Isn't he so handsome?? :) So far it's been pretty hard for him, he works LONG hours (I'm talking like 8am to 11pm, no joke) and the work is difficult, but for the most part he enjoys it. We're both happy that he's finally working after four months of being at home! I miss him a lot during the day since I've been so used to having him around. I just hope the poor guy doesn't get burned out. Good thing he's getting paid over time!

On a related note, a month or two before the internship started David got a call from PWC requesting his shirt size because they were going to send him a box of "goodies." Sure enough, a few weeks later we received this box of goodies.

I thought it was so funny because it actually had goodies! David stole the cookies before I could take the picture though. Typical. :)


Christmas and New Years!

Last year my new years resolution was to blog more. And I am happy to report that, looking over the year overall, I did a pretty good job! I got thrown off with the start of my craft blog and a complete lack of material to write about, but I love the accomplishment. :)

We kind of a crazy Christmas, we essentially had three! One with David and I, one with my family, and one with his. It was so wonderful to be with so much family on such a special day. Too bad I was sick out of my freaking mind.

 We started early, 6:30am and we don't have kids to blame for it!
 The hubs got me a fantastic bead caddy! I pretty much immediately transferred everything to it.
 After our short Christmas together we headed over to my parents house. Jellybean loved her presents. :)

 Brandon is playing an Ocarina from David! He basically mastered it within a few seconds.
 It even snowed a little bit!! I honestly think it's the first time I've ever had a semi white Christmas. It's usually too early to snow in Maryland.
 Brandon was so proud of the way he wrapped David's summer sausage present.
 Have you ever had one of these? They are delightful! I want to try making my own after I saw how easily it seemed to be assembled.
 Brandon's traditional wearing of all of the clothes he got.
 Christmas dinner. (I wasn't included, I was so sick I didn't want to risk getting everyone else sick.)
 After dinner we headed back to David's house to have Christmas there! We got David's dad some pomelos, gigantic green grapefruits that he used to eat on his mission.

As awful as this picture is, I think it does a good job showing how sick I really was. I even have a breathe right strip on because I was practically dying. I used every bit of strength to smile when I got my presents (I was super excited for everything, I got some amazing craft gear from my family and David's mom even got me a Silhouette!) It was a great Christmas, but I'm glad the hype of the holidays is over.

New Years was very quiet, the first one I've ever had. The past two New Years I've been in Disneyland! But with so many people being so sick we just didn't have it in us to do anything big.

 We taught Cleo how to be Keyboard Cat! (Video reference here.)
 We enjoyed sparkling cider and poppers.
 The company of family and friends.
 Jack even joined in the fun. :)
 A little too much if you ask me!
 Have you ever played Blockus? You should, it's awesome.
 And we ended the evening with a traditional New Years kiss. :)
