sometimes i come across a quote that bears some kind of significance and i want to share it with you dear readers. sometimes it's based on where i am in life or a certain event, sometimes a quote just reminds me of a friend, or sometimes it makes me think.
this weekend marks our first holiday celebration of the season -- a yankee swap with my group of girlfriends and our handsome men. call me crazy, but i look forward to our yankee swap all year! despite our best efforts at getting together once a month for drinks, dinner, and maybe some pottery or crafts or a birthday party, there's something about truly letting loose with the whole crew for a night of fun at the holidays.
with lots of champagne.
and chroming. (remember the girls cruise last march? check it out here, here, and here for our on-ship debauchery!)
god, i feel like a little kid all giddy looking forward to a sleepover. but i really am giddy. i so look forward to these times when we forget that we have responsibilities and kids (well, not all of us!) and lives outside the party...and just enjoy the time we have together.
because the time we spend together is special and precious. and the gifts are generally hilarious.
i'm excited to kick off the holiday season with some bubbly and my girls.
p.s. i'm going to kdr fitness later today for a workout, but i'm also getting weighed and measured (since it's been 4 weeks -- oops.) so hopefully i'll have a chance to give you an update on my progress!
