On Friday, after a day of Christmas parties and #GivingTuesday celebrations at school, the kids came home, hung out with friends and relaxed. Then we headed to Christo's in Lexington for dinner with my parents. If you are local and love a good Buffalo wing, you need to get to Christo's. They have the best ones ever. Ronnie's in Clemmons is second but for the best wing its always Christo's. And then of course, my dad makes fabulous wings on the grill but y'all can't get just pull up to his front door and request an order. I probably could, but you guys can't. :)
I got the Christmas cards done on Saturday, Peter helped my brother with some work and Sarah and I ran errands and had lunch at Subway.
Sunday was a very busy day. After Mass, we had lunch at my parent's house and then Sarah and I headed to the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem to see the University of North Carolina School of the Arts perform the Nutcracker! Sarah and I had never been so we were excited.
It was a really good show and I'm so glad we went! However, getting out of the parking deck was a nightmare. It took us ONE HOUR!!! And I'm not even exaggerating! We happened to be one of the last people out of the deck. It was so frustrating!!! We barely made it to drop of Sarah and Cheyanne at their Girl Scout Christmas party. After we dropped them off, Jennifer and I went to dinner. It was nice to catch up with her. I've been so busy with things at school and trying to get everything done for Christmas that I haven't had lunch with her in a month! That's too long! Hopefully January will be a little more calm!
Yesterday I went to pick up my glasses and here is the mug shot I took of myself this morning.
Regardless, I am just so excited to be able to see. A lot of people warned me that I would hate them or have trouble getting used to them. But I quickly adjusted. I think it's because I had to wear my reading glasses with my contacts for the last month and could not see a darn thing up close or mid-range without them. Now I'm not cussing under my breath while searching for my reading glasses so I can read a label or something on the computer.
Have a happy Tuesday, everyone! I will be trying to wrap up the last of my present wrapping and then will need to start thinking about cleaning and cooking to be ready for Christmas!!
