A Little of Everything

Wow, it just dawned on me; I have not posted anything since November 30th. What is up with that? Well, I guess I better tell you guys what I have been up to for the past 12 days.

Boston - Boston was great. The work part was ok; you guys know, meetings, lunches, talking to the managers, that type of stuff. On Friday we did have our Christmas Party. That was ok, but it seems that I have had a better time in past years (could be that I consumed no beer? huh, maybe). On Saturday we visited the greatest place ever, and a new mandatory stop every time we visit Boston, the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, omg!, the greatest place EVER. They have tons of outlet stores like bebe, Arden B, Polo, and get this, brace yourself, a Burberry outlet store, yeah!!! I was in heaven. I even got a pair of Gucci sunglasses for, get this, $69.99!!

After all the shopping we headed for the Custom House in Boston. They have an awesome observation deck and I was able to snap some pics.

On Sunday we hung out in Boston walked from Fanuiel Hall through the Public Garden to Newbury Street. Later that afternoon we headed for the airport to make our way home.

Houston: Mon. to Fri. - I have been so lazy this past week. I pretty much had the whole week off, and was supposed to get so many things done, but when I looked at the calendar it was Friday already. On Thursday our neighborhood had its annual Christmas lights walk through. Pretty much people walk around the neighborhood looking at the lights. This was the second year of the event and the second year that we have been a Host Home. We pretty much set up a table outside with drinks and cookies/cakes and people stop by and get a refreshment.

Saturday - Watched Maria Full of Grace. The movie was ok.

Sunday - I finally realized that my husband is not allowed to go out by himself. I swear every time he hits the town by himself something happens. Today he went to the Colts vs. Texans game. He has been gone for 12 hours, well, guess what, he was pick pocketed. Someone tried to use our ATM! We had to call around and cancel all his cards. Believe me weird things happen to that boy. Lesson learned, he is no longer allowed out of the house unescorted.
