Lot's of Fun (and not so fun) Things!

Jamie's mom, Gail, flew in from Cali for a Holiday visit for about five days, starting last Thursday. If you read my last post, you know that there was some sort of fun stomach thingy going around our house ... only lasted like 12 hours, but still, fun. Anyway, it only took about 48 hours from the time Gail landed to also be afflicted with the "fun". She also went with Jamie to put Max, our oldest doggie, to sleep at the vet's office on Monday {tear}. (FYI, our vet, also a boarding kennel and a groomer, is AWESOME!!! So if you are looking for one in the Louisville area, I HIGHLY recommend Springhurst Animal Hospital! They even sent us a condolence flower arrangement... they really are awesome!) So all of that, mixed with the really cold, crappy weather, and she didn't have such a stellar time while she was here! However, those are just the bad things .... lots of fun, good things have happened in the last week ....

Friday afternoon (pre-tummy troubles) Gail and I dropped Connor off at my mom's and we went shopping at J. Crew for my Christmas present and so Gail could also shop for a few remaining people on her list. If you aren't aware of my J. Crew obsession by now, I'm genuinely shocked. So much fun! There were amazing sales and we basically bought one (or two) of everything in the store! It was a lot of fun, plus I got some great stuff from her for Christmas ... including a super-cute red wool coat, perfect for the Holidays!

Saturday, still pre-sick, we made the trek to Lexington for the UK Alumni Big Blue Lunch with Santa. We had a great time and I ALMOST got Connor to take his picture alone with Santa, but not quite! The event was really fun and they were giving out gifts from the Disney Store of all the little ones! Totally worth the trip to Lex!!

We also did a drive-by past the Alpha Delta Pi house {sigh} I totally miss it! Unfortunately, it appears they no longer put the moving reindeer on the roof at Christmas time ... which I think might have something to do with my pledge class placing them in compromising positions in the middle of the night after coming home from the bars ... but I'm not sure! ;)

Sunday night I made a four-layer (yes, four) pumpkin cake for Bunco on Monday night. It turned out awesome!! I'm so proud of myself. I can hear the oohs and ahhs from here ... thanks! :)

This is completely off-topic, but as some of you know, I love chicken salad ... like, a lot. My new favorite way to make it, as in the super-duper-lazy-person-who-loves-chicken-salad way of making it, is to take a can of Tyson chunk chicken, drain and rinse, add 1 tablespoon of light mayo, tsp. of celery salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper and voila! I just eat it with a fork, or put it on saltines .... yummy!

Ok, back to what I was talking about...

Monday, Connor got his first hair cut! I thought about doing Cookie Cutters for his first cut, but all the reviews I read online were bad, so I called up my girl (Jennifer at Vertu Salon) and she offered to cut his hair at our house! It only took a few Gerber Puffs and Fruit Strips to get through the process and he went from curly mop-head to a little man! (I know I said I didn't have anymore bad news .... but I lied!) I saved some curls to document Connor's first haircut, but now I cannot find them!!!! I put them in a Ziploc and now I've either misplaced them or threw them away in my frantic cooking spree for Bunco that night. Either way, I am SO bummed right now and I'm thinking of just cutting more hair off his head so I'll have it for his baby book!! Seriously! I'll keep you posted on what I decide to do!!!

Today, Sears came and cleaned our carpets and I'm feeling WAY happier with a cleaner house ... way worth what it costs to get done!!! Off to make dome Christmas cookies for an exchange on Sunday ... chow.
