Breaking in the new haircut! I'm not gonna lie. It felt really good to have someone play with my hair for two hours. I like how much healthier it feels and she even curled it for me so I didn't have to do it for Jon's company holiday party!
Did you see this? It was a good choice on TIME's part.
My mom sent me some pictures from her trip out here and I love this one because I can tell he is about to run at any moment. He has that look in his eye...
I thought this was a sweet capture of brotherly love. I hope they will be the best of buddies as they get older.
The mailroom at work makes me really happy. Bubble wrap garland. This is Martha Stewart level decor.
Jon got this email from Spotify. He's almost always listening to music so this doesn't surprise me!
After I got home from the salon, we got all dressed up and waited for our amazing babysitter to come over.
Nothing says Friday night like a formal dress and two brothers torturing each other.
We asked The Dude to take a nice photo for us. I tried to talk him through the focus feature but I think we need to work on that a little bit. I'm also never sure what to do with my hand when I don't have pockets.
Despite the look on his face, we are both thrilled to bust out of the house for a night!
Downtown was all sparkly with lights. I have to say it looks much prettier at night.
So here's the thing: Jon mentioned casually that it was a 70s themed holiday party. Yet it was such a subtle mention and only in passing, so I didn't pay much attention to it. Well when we walked in the door of the party, I quickly realized this was a heavily themed 70s party...as in almost everyone was dressed in bellbottom jeans or short flowered hippie dresses. We were pretty overdressed to say the least, so we formulated a quick plan to do a lap of the food stations, and then cozy up on the third floor in the lounge area to consume it! :)
I can't believe this is the only photo we took of the entire party but let me tell you they went all out!! We quickly realized we were both way too hungry to settle for snack foods, and we felt like we put in our face time, so we ducked out to find a late night restaurant.
Then a classic move happened. We were sitting at the bar area of the restaurant waiting for our table to open up when I noticed the two women seated next to us - at the bar itself - had just left their chairs and there was a lone cell phone still on the table. I looked at Jon and said, "oh no I think she forgot her cell and she just left." Being the nice guy he is, he grabbed the phone and ran out the door yelling Ma'am, Ma'am!
Turns out a.) he was chasing the wrong people, and b.) the two people at the bar had only left for a minute and actually intended to leave their phone to save their spot (pro tip: don't do that in San Francisco if you want to see it when you get back!). We both laughed so hard over it and I had tears streaming down my face. We had good intentions but he basically swiped a stranger's phone and ran down the street with it for two minutes. Hahaha! We're truly a family of noobs.
Our food was so good. We had a crab dip, a quinoa and citrus salad, and a bunch of biscuits! We had them three ways: classic, fried chicken, and catfish. I only had the classic which was perfect. I put strawberry preserves on it and I enjoyed every single bite.
Then I told Jon I was going to sleep ZZZZzzzzzzz.
How was your Friday night?
Are you going to see any movies this weekend? I'm looking for a recommendation!
