Caffeinated Ranomness: I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus....


So that is the song in my head today...

BTW, how do you like the new layout? Courtesy of the ah-maz-ing Rachel. She's quite talented, that's for sure.

Hubby played at the university for a Christmas celebration Tuesday night. The lines were long, my shoes were uncomfortable, but the music was great. AND it was a bonus that Grant Terry and the band (Superman is part of "the band") festively dressed up for the occassion.

Hubby's in the red vest wearing the Santa hat.






Sigh. I love him.

Our Sunday School class (the one we "were" in, not the one we're teaching) got together for a Christmas party last night. It was a dirty santa/white elephant $5 gift card one. LOVE dirty santa. That's when things get fun. We had dozens of steals, but, in the end, Superman ended up with a Sonic card, and I had Starbucks this morning. A tall double shot, nonfat, no foam, peppermint mocha. I have 50 cents left on the card. No joke.

Running has not gone well this week. I think we've only run twice. And that'll be it. UGH!! Work schedules (for both of us) are driving me crazy!!! BUT we both agreed that we're just going to deal with it next week to get back on track, running early in the morning (*tear*) if we must. But perhaps, to make those days better, we can stop at Starbucks on the way home...

In happier (and more calorie-laden) news, we have a trip to the Alluvian and the Viking Cooking School planned very, very soon...SO EXCITED!!

Anyway, enjoy your weekend, enjoy your caffeinated randomness, and visit Andrea for more randomness!!

Your new layout certainly is great! :) I haven't heard of a "dirty santa/white elephant" but I am assuming that it is sort of like Kris Kringle?

Hope you had a fantabulous caffeinated weekend! :)
