What a weekend! I’m at work today, which is no fun, but I’m seeing 2 friends from college tonight for dinner and I am excited about that! Christine and I are going to Kerry’s house for dinner. I made puppy chow and bought a bottle of wine. Kerry’s dog is the cutest! This weekend was busy! Kit came over for pizza with my parents on Friday night. We had the Lou and watched these videos. One of the kids is in Lindsay’s class this year.

When we got back, we went bowling again with Lindsay, Dave, and Colin. I was terrible! I didn’t even break 100 so then I was mad that I was doing so poorly. Rough night all around. On Saturday, Kit made me breakfast then we all piled in the car to go to Walmart to get snacks and things for the Ugly Sweater party that night. When we got back, I made these dark chocolate blueberry clusters.  They were actually pretty good! I didn’t take any pictures of mine. It’s almonds topped with blueberries then covered with melted dark chocolate. I think people liked them because there weren’t any left over! After I made those, I hopped in the car to go to Kiersten’s family Christmas party. Kit and I went last year. I’ve been to it for 4 or 5 years now. I can’t remember. It’s a good time! There is always good food. It was great to see Kiersten’s friends and meet some new ones. Here is a picture of the 2 of us.


I stayed for about 3 hours then I had to get back to Yorkville for the Ugly Sweater Christmas party at Kit and Lindsay’s! I made it back around 8. It was so hot in the barn! I didn’t wear my sweater very long. We played flippy cup for a while. I opened another bottle of the wine Kiersten and I made and had a friend of Tom’s try it. He is always drinking red wine. He was impressed with it and suggested I sell it. I only have 4 bottles left though! It would be expensive to go take the class again and then sell the wine. Maybe I could figure out a way to make it on my own someday..

We went to Mike and Denise’s for pizza on Sunday then I had to go home. It was a busy weekend! Here are a few pictures of Kit. I’m dating Santa.



Kit and I exchanged gifts on Thursday night. He gave me this necklace!

I changed the background on my phone to this picture. So true.
