So this year was our first work Christmas party as Mr. & Mrs.! And it landed on his work night.
And my work doesn't throw Christmas parties. (Well, not the kind you put on a cute dress for and bring the family to).
At least we had a fancy pants church banquet to go to, so I don't feel too left out. We even drove home in the rain, so it felt extra Christmasy! God threw that little perk in there for us Southern girls who rarely have a wintery December to brag about.
I do love the holidays. Next year should be fun, we looked at his schedule and he's working EVERY.SINGLE.HOLIDAY. All of them. You name it, he's working it. If I made up a holiday right now at random, he'd be working that night. I promise. But life goes on and we just learn to Tim Gunn it & make it work.
Speaking of making it work, if you remember my previous post where I mourned the fact that I'll be buying tactical gear and bullets for the rest of my life as "presents" for The Deputy, I surprisingly bought him the most amazing gift EVER yesterday. Of course, he got exactly what he asked for, but he also got something that I found on my own! Just like REAL Christmas shopping! I can't say what it is on here, because he may or may not be reading this, but I'll post braggy posts after he opens it. Unless he hates it. Which he won't. There's no way. This gift is amazing on so many levels.
Anyways--if I don't get back on here until then, Merry Merry Merry Christmas! I hope you all have a warm & cozy holiday. And to all our husbands & loved ones--stay safe!
