Something that doesn’t suck.


I. Love. Christmas.

There’s just something about a holiday that involves a thousand different traditions, societal and familial (big-ish words anyone?), that’s so comforting. No matter what’s going on in life, come December (or October now, it seems), the red and green come out, the trees go up, and the mall gets so packed you seriously consider assuming the fetal position right in the middle of several too-tiny-to-move memorobilia-no-one-really-wants-but-it’s-christmas-so-its-the-thought-that-counts stores.  Mmmm, I’ll even take that, if it means family traditions and shiny new toys.  It even makes the cold bearable.

That said, a few things to impart on you all this holiday season:

(a) Hope your holidays are wonderful, no matter where you are.
(b) Don’t see 4 Christmases, it’s an awful excuse for a holiday movie.
(c) My family has an annual family euchre (it’s a card game) tournament.  Just thought I’d share that with the internet world.
(d) Be merry, because we all have a lot to be thankful for, even with things the way they are now.  🙂

Stay Christmas classy, world.  And Happy Holidays.

I’m getting married!

I was going to write a post about this, but then I decided to write about something entirely different.

As a girl, it’s only natural that I think about my wedding ALL THE TIME! After a long day, I love to come home and, after an hour of bitching about how much better my life would be if I had a man (guys are such assholes!), I like nothing better than to whip out my computer and start searching for the perfect dresses and rings. Since, like many of my fellow women, I’ve been taking part in this delightful and totally rewarding ritual since I was about 8, it’s only natural that I would, by now, have a pretty divine picture of exactly what the MOST PERFECT DAY OF MY LIFE will look like. Here’s the low down:

The Wedding of Jill and Mr. Right(!)
Day: December 25
Theme: Christmas
Colors: red and green
Flower: poinsettia with holly and mistletoe accents
Food: cookies, mince-meat pie, candy canes, christmas ham, figgy pudding
Drink: egg nog and mulled wine
Band: Nativity themed Christmas cover band
Song: ‘Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays’ by N’Sync

Please RSVP via the Christmas card-themed invitation you are currently holding. All gifts must come wrapped in holiday-themed paper. Reindeer antlers and santa hats will be provided – your choice. Each guest will be given the option to decorate their own ornament and/or Christmas cookie – you can even take them home!

That’s what I’ve got so far. I’m currently ironing out the details, but don’t worry, I’ve got years in which to continue obsessing about ONE DAY in the grand scheme of my life. Commence on-going search for a husband, of which you KNOW consumes every moment of my existence. And the perfect dress. My wedding (and, perhaps, my life) means nothing without the perfect dress.

((Special thanks to Sara for the future planning of said wedding!))
