Quick Takes

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

The last few weeks of the year always get away from me, with all the stuff that goes on.


There's an anniversary to celebrate in there.  Thirteen years ago, the husband and I looked like this:

Now, my hair is longer and I weigh, um, more. Justin looks about the same though.


I got to meet a blogging friend, her husband and their adorable baby.


We spent a couple of days with my husband's grandparents and mom and dad.  They hadn't met the littlest one yet.  We hadn't seen them in a few years, since our conversion to Catholicism.  It's been a difficult time, but the subject didn't really come up for discussion while we were there, so it was a pleasant time.


The baby?

He's not too fast yet, but look out world...

On an unrelated note, I hadn't planned on going, but I will be getting to go to Blissdom again this year.  It's a lot of fun, although my friend Meredith, who knows everyone, won't be there, so who will I tag along with?  I know no one, no one knows me, and I really, really am an introvert.  Even so, I'm looking forward to it.


And speaking of Meredith.  She's having a baby soon and like all moms-to-soon-be (again), I know she needs plenty of prayers to carry her through the last few difficult weeks of pregnancy and the weeks of newborn haze. So please remember her.

--Bonus Round--

Go read Betty Duffy.  She's awesome, and generally says stuff I wish I had said.

I am jealous, I really want to go to Blissdom! Maybe, next year.

Happy New Year, Jordana!

Happy New Year, sweet momma. But you were Jordana first before kids, right?!!

Love to you!

I wish I was going to Blissdom. I really wanted to go this year. Just not happening. Darn.

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Sorry I won't be there to linger in the back with you! Just not in the budget but have fun!

And if you talk to Meredith, let her know I'm thinking of her.
