i just got a whole ton of xmas shopping done over on etsy. nothing feels better than looking at a list and checking stuff off! what i love about etsy (and i'm sure i've mentioned this before) is that you can get handmade, unique stuff, at totally reasonable prices. i love it.
this is the first weekend in quite a while where i haven't had anything to do. the agenda holds a whole lot of nothing, and after a ridiculous amount of sleep last night (think double digits, baby), i'm feeling all kinds of productive.
it was also decided last night that thanksgiving this year will be at my house. that is a first. i was talking to D the other day when i asked him how he would feel if we just stayed home this year. i love my family, but i do kind of hate having to drive all over on the holidays, and i thought there might be a way of just keeping to home this year. i brought it up with my mom yesterday and was surprised to hear her say she thought that was an awesome idea, and that she would much rather come over here. my sister said the same thing. our house is the biggest, and while our kitchen isn't the best (that honor would go to my mother), we have been here long enough to know how to work with it. i'm kind of excited to be grown-up enough to host a family holiday. i think deciding on a menu and working on the meal together will also be good practice for D and i vis-a-vis wedding planning and stuff. we think we work well together in the kitchen, because at home we do, but on a larger scale? who knows. one of us might be a culinary dictator and not even know it.
i think now i'll wash my hair, then venture out to get a trim. i'm getting a bit shaggy. although i did have a terrible dream last night that i went to get an inch cut off and they gave me a bob that made me cry. do you think that's a sign? in that dream i also ran into my favorite babysitter as a child, who was a hot young man named jay, and tried to get him to make out with me. even though i was a grown-up in the dream, he declined, saying he couldn't kiss a girl he'd babysat. i was bummed.
