sorry y'all....its been a while since i last posted. thats what the holidays to do ya....makes you forget everything. this Christmas was pretty quiet. we didnt do a lot of gift giving because of money....we are trying to save for the wedding and other big stuff coming up so gifts were very minimal. dave and i went to my moms house for Christmas breakfast/Sis' birthday celebration and then headed over to his family's house to hang out.
Christmas night we were once again invited to play Christmas Bingo with a close friend's family. apparently Dave and I are really lucky at Bingo (there really isnt a way to cheat)....the past 3 years in a row we've won multiple times. This year wasnt any different.....I won twice, Dave won twice, and we both threw a couple games because we felt bad cause we kept winning. whenever you win a game you get to pick a "bingo present" (everyone brings a couple bingo presents) out of a pile and its fun to unwrap the mystery present....usually fun gag gifts. this year i brought BaconPop (bacon flavored popcorn which im embarrassed to say is really yummy). Dave won a candle and a giant...i mean giant zippo lighter. i wont a plug-in scent warmer from yankee candle and handmade pillow. always a good time. dave had family come in to visit from Mexico...we had fun hanging out with cousins. we had Christmas dinner with his family on Sunday afternoon/evening. All in all a good low key Christmas.
this week at work is pretty quiet to....i guess people took the whole week off. i found out yesterday that i got a promotion....yea...finally. i am now a senior records anyalyst. cant wait to see what my pay adjustment will be....im thankful for anything right now....every little bit helps.
