do.

hi friends.

sorry it's been a little quite 'round here. i've been having some techinical difficulties and unfortunately my tech guy lives in afghanistan. boo. so i've been trying to channel my inner nerd and figure this stuff out on my own. but...it's taking me a while. in the meantime, i've been christmas shopping, girl's night out-ing, not cleaning, and overall enjoying the holiday season.

one of our friends (who is also deployed with mr.a) was able to come home for christmas and he brought with him some gifts for the girls, sent all the way from afghanistan by mr.a! i haven't picked them up yet--but i'm verrrry excited to see what afghan-style christmas gifts look like.

piper's christmas "program" was this past sunday. she was a little nervous and kept saying she didn't want to sing, but when the time came, she walked up on stage with all the other kids so i thought she was gonna go for it. but she disappeared! i was watching through my camera and scanning through all the little kids and i could not see her! i walked over to the side of the auditorium, and there she was. ten feet back from all the other kids, pouting. hahaha, it was classic.

i'm aaaalmost done christmas shopping and i'm pretty excited about the gifts i'll be giving this year. one gift i saw on cup of jo. it's pretty much really awesome. not sure if i'll give joanna the credit for it, or bask in the credit myself...ha!

i'm constantly amazed at how quickly two kids destroy a perfectly, almost-clean house. man! as a hater-of-housekeeping, it just kills me how fast they destroy all my hard and drudgerous (is that a word?) work. grrrr.

i've never been lips girl. uhhh, did that sound weird? what i mean is: i've never consistently worn lipstick or lip gloss. well, i guess in 6th grade i wore silver-shimmery lip smackers. (kesha had nothin' on me.) but since then it's been, at most, chapstick. BUT...this week i bought TWO lipsticks! real lipsticks!* 
i'll try to get some photographical evidence for you soon. but for now, they're going in my stocking. yes, i'm filling my own stocking with goodies. pathetic.

*by real i mean like, big girl lipstick. with a pointy tip. in a tube.

  3. I wanted to tell you that I love the name Quinn and might have to name my future child that. Has anyone ever told you that you remind them of Shawn Johnson? I live in Iowa City and it is nice to look at a blog where people have to layer up to stay warm! Merry Christmas.
