my family (except my sis and bro-in-law…we’ll miss you blake and kim!) got in late last night and reis and i can’t wait to spend time with them for the next 2 weeks in our hood. and let’s be honest, i am also really excited for the free meals courtesy of mom and dad :) being the loving daughter that i am, i also created a “chore list” for my dad to do too. but he really loves doing that stuff so don’t go thinking i am a slave driver. on another note, i can’t believe christmas is NEXT weekend! yipppeee! i still have a ton of christmas shopping to do, but thank goodness for online shopping + free shipping. except when they exclude hawaii and alaska. which is usually always in the fine print.
