The girlies and I are visiting my parents' house right now- Jim is meeting us here tomorrow. We're in town for an ugly sweater party tomorrow (fun!) and a dress fitting I have today (the opposite of fun). This fitting (for a bridesmaid dress) was supposed to happen the day after Thanksgiving and then I came to my senses and cancelled it. Unfortunately I haven't stopped eating since Thanksgiving soooo..... what can I say? The holidays are hellidays on the old waistline!
So my goals today include: lose 10 lbs and find an ugly sweater. No sweat, right? Hohoho.
Yesterday I had my first (of many, no doubt) awkward moment of the holiday season. My mother-in-law came over for lunch and to celebrate her birthday. I reached into my pile of wrapped presents, handed her one and watched excitedly as she unwrapped.... an ice cream maker???!?! That's not what I bought her! She didn't want it, I could tell, but I didn't know what to do! She feigned enthusiasm and we had cake.
But I couldn't let it go. So after a while (too long! I should have just said something right away!) I awkwardly asked if she was very attached to her ice cream maker. Blank stare. That's what I thought. So I admitted my airheaded mistake and presented her real present. It was a much bigger hit and she admitted it would be used a lot more than the ice cream maker (which can now go to it's intended recipient). Embarrassing! But I'm so happy I said something. And what is the holiday season without a faux pas or two?
Speaking of faux pas, how much do we love this AT&T commercial right now?
