i seriously cannot WAIT to go visit in january and meet that little ball of joy. meagan & jude are going to be the absolute best parents ever.

it’s actually been really exciting for the whole family. between the four daughters, she’s the first one to have a baby! my dad has been thrilled beyond belief. i just wish i was going to be there when he finally met her for the first time.

in other news, i have been turning out house into st. nick’s winter wonderland. i seriously love the holidays! all we need is to go fetch that real christmas tree and we’ll be set.

2 years ago, my previous roommate, vock, took me to cut down my very first real tree. ever. which since then i’ve been determined to never have a fake tree again. sorry mom & dad, but the fake things aren’t cuttin’ it.

once our house is fully decked out, i’ll post some pics.

i ALSO have been gifted the most miserable viral eye infection as of this weekend.

how?

i’m that lucky.

i’ll help you guys out and post some pictures from the last few days.

why?

because one day i hope that i can look back and laugh at them. with you. because i know you’ll all be in hysterics. or you’ll just feel bad for me. regardless…..

i spent 6 hours between urgent care & the ophthalmologist for them to tell me there was nothing that could be done, and i shouldn’t work for the next week. wow. not what i wanted to hear. i digress and leave you with these hilarious photos.

posted in chronological order….

note: the couch & blanket remain key players in these photos.

so i hope i’ve given everyone a good chuckle. while you all laugh, please think about having sandpaper eyelids. that is how mine feel. and my eyes feel like they’re on the verge of bleeding or exploding. cute, right?

happy monday, ya’ll.
