The MEGA HUGE Holiday Cool Stuff List
December 9, 2011
HELLO FRIENDS!!! There's gonna be a lot of ALL CAPS talking today, because I'm so excited! Doesn’t it look like Miss Julia is about to present a list of some sort or something? Actually, she’s holding a napkin. And this pic is from last year. But I still love it and it seems festive, like the MEGA HUGE HOLIDAY COOL STUFF I LIKE LIST I’m about to present to you.
We just got back from visiting family IN HAWAII, it was super fun and I have a ton of pix that I can’t wait to share! Next week! And the holiday fairies, aka my paternal unit, got me a new DSLR!!!!! I’ve always wanted to write this: SQUEE!!!! If my family thought I was intolerable with the picture taking before. . . ah what fun awaits them!
Our flight got in at midnight last night and I got to bed at 2 am so I am going to be really incoherent today. Plus before I left last week I did a week’s worth of blogging in 2 days because I am. . . how do you say? Oh – OUT OF MY MIND. Any one else would have said, hey going on a trip, see you in a few! But I apparently anointed myself the Terminator of Blogging and that’s why you got randomness like the All About Me post, which my husband found very bizarre. But I LOVED hearing all the tidbits about you guys!
