What is better than a dress with cats on it? A FREE dress with cats on it! My friend Suzzie gave me this dress a few months ago and I wore it out Saturday night. Unfortunately, I can't quite fill out the top of it, so I threw a sweater over it and wore it out Christmas shopping with Kyle's twin Brian last Sunday.
I feel like this last little bit up until Christmas is the craziest time of the year! Actually, I feel like Kyle and I never really slowed down after the wedding. All of the birthday's in October, then the holidays creeped up on us, bastards! Tomorrow is the "unofficial" work outing. My place of employment stopped doing Christmas parties the year I was hired (go figure) but continued to do the picnic in the summer. This year was the 65 year anniversary, so we went on a dinner cruise (so fancy!), which didn't really leave room in the budget for a holiday party. I am not even sure if they will be doing them anymore, which bums me out a little bit because even though I am pretty laid-back when it comes to parties, I kind of wanted to get all fancy for a holiday party. I remember when we were kids we would put on our best clothes and go to my grandparents's or my aunt's and have Christmas eve dinner, then come morning we would wear our pj's all day at home.
I still think it is great that my co-workers all decide to go out for a few drinks this time of year though. It's like "HEY! We made it a whole year without killing each other, lets have a beer!". Such warm joy.
