Last night, our group of friends had our annual Christmas party…three years in the making. We always draw names for Secret Santa and exchange. Year before last we did an Ugly Christmas Sweater party, last year we did a Christmas PJ party…this year, it was a little more low-key, there’s lots of babies now!
Personal Confession: I am not the “greenest” person on Earth. I try to be, really, but I’m a little OCD about notes. Like To-Do lists, notes at work, etc…they have to be really nice and neat. If I scribble notes during a meeting, I will re-write them afterwards to be really nice and neat. I “might” rewrite some things 3 and 4 times. My co-workers all pick on my crumbled balls of notes. I pretty tech-saavy too, but for me, nothing can replace the act of writing something down. I really love it. I mean, I LOVE filling out forms…but I usually ask for two forms, one to fill out and the second to fill out neatly. I know, I’m sorry:) Sooooo…my best friends know this and accept my quirks in love.
This year, my friend, David Stanfield (a super talented designer by the way) drew my name. He gave me 3 totally awesome gifts:
1. A handmade/illustrated card by David Stanfield himself – super amazing! Picture to come soon.
2. A beautiful apron from Anthropologie (my soul-store)
I’ve always wanted a cutsy apron, but never get the nerve to buy one for myself…so now I don’t have to wear the Starbucks apron that my husband “kept” after he quit the land of Bucks.
3. This AMAZING journal – “Wreck This Journal ” by Keri Smith – I don’t know how I didn’t know about this before, but FREAKIN-A, this thing is sooo cute! It’s truly going to be a challenge because it goes against everything I stand for with regards to neatness, but I accept the challenge!! There’s a whole Flikr community behind this project – take a look!
I am soo thrilled for Christmas – I love my friends so much and even more because they know me, accept my quirks and STILL love me for who I am:)
