I had every intention of posting last week but time was very limited. With being in St. Louis the week before, I was slammed when I got back to my office. I'm not complaining because my week literally flew by but sadly the blog took backseat. I'm kicked back on couch watching the Grammys so I figured I got a few hours to reply to personal emails and even get this post out.
How was your weekend? Mine has been so good. Friday I worked from home and got to have Jax in my lap pretty much the whole day. Then we had 2 couples come over and we played the card game - Cards against humanity and we had so much fun! We laughed until we cried and moments like that are awesome. I really don't drink much and when I do I normally ONLY have one drink . Well, I had Smirnoff marshmallow fluff vodka mixed with cranberry pomegranate juice and oh my did it sneak up on me! It tastes like kool aid and very refreshing. Until the next morning....... Which caused me to wake up with a slight headache and lazy couch potato. We did go see a early movie "American hustle" and we ate at Chili's with a gift card we got for Christmas . Great evening even though I had dozens of things I needed to get done. Oh well, I rarely get some of those open lazy days.
Today was our first day for Todd and I teaching Sunday school at church. Our children's program is really needing more teachers and volunteers so we were asked if we would be willing to help. The schedule is made every 3 months and so we said we would give it a whirl but to check with us when March comes around. I got to say that children's ministry is not my calling and never has been. I'm sure it's mostly because I could never have children of my own. I sorta put this guard around my heart not to be baby crazy and to look away when there were lots of kids. Now don't get me wrong , I absolutely believe that my nieces hung the moon and my friend Wendy's boys even call me aunt Holli so I like the kids that I know well. I'm sure this doesn't make much sense to most of you and I can't explain it well. Anyway, I was nervous but it turned out to be pretty fun. Oh there were tears and a little brattiness but not from me. There was one little girl that I found out who parents are going through a divorce, and she was my shadow. She sat in my lap every time she could and I kinda liked it. So we shall see but Todd was a natural and the kiddos liked him.
I wanted to show y'all my fun boot cuffs I've been making from sweaters that I mentioned last week. Tomorrow is supposed to be cold so I'm excited to wear one of these with my boots.
So here are some photos and I can't go without posting pics of my baby Jax.
Have a great day y'all!
