Team Christmas Dinner

There's nothing quite like the Tonga Room at the Fairmont hotel. With a thunderstorm every 30 minutes, complimentary lei's and overpriced decent "Asian Fusion" cuisine and cocktails (Virgin Passion fruit Margarita for me please!) it was quite the evening.

Not sure if I'll ever need to go back, but I sure am glad I went! Especially when the photographer came around with this great pic and my own little picture on a book of matches. Classic.

Mere's BFA

*Photo Stolen from Mere

Last weekend I flew to Utah to attend the Opening (Insert Gala/Ceremony/Festivities as you deem appropriate) of Meredith Jones Hendrick's final show. Mere and I have been friends since freshman year.(I was going to upload freshman year pics but am too lazy to pull out the external hard drive right now)

We started the weekend off right by hitting up the Park City outlets where we definitely purchased matching dresses. Too bad we never got a twin pic.

That night, we went to her opening in the HFAC (up until Jan 11th. If you're in Provo, I highly, HIGHLY recommend attending). I have to say, I never doubted Mere's abilities and I think she's absolutely incredible, but this takes the cake. What an amazing final show. I'm so proud of her and everything she's done. (Plus, I'm nosy, so it was awesome to get to read a hundred personal letters and not get in trouble for snooping!)

I know everyone wants to buy one of her gorgeous monoprints, but here's hoping I'm one of the first in line :) Have I dropped enough hints yet? haha.

I love you, Mere! WELL worth the trip!

Just a few More

Breakin' in the Party Dress

Oh yes. The infamous party dress. I LOOOVVEEE my party dress. And I got to wear it TWICE last week. When you calculate the CPW (cost per wear) it's already well on it's way to being justified :)

Plus, I got some sexy shoes to go with. There's no rule saying just because you're an old married lady you can't be a little sexy, right? The girls in SLC might say I was a little TOO sexy, but who's judging? Back off.

First thing's first. PSG Holiday Party. Quite a night full of dancing, eating, and chatting. I think most people dread their holiday parties, but not me. I love mine. Two years in a row now and I'm already looking forward to next year's! I think it helps that everyone is wasted and partying like crazy so I fit right in (minus the wasted partying part). The only bad part was the fact that numerous people commented on how they didn't recognize me and how GOOD I looked. I think it was supposed to be a compliment, but I was a little offended. You mean I don't look this good every day?! I had no idea I was such a wreck at work. So I owe Morgan a huge thank-you for helping me spice things up. (Seriously. I need you to teach me how to do this more often!)

Anyways. I didn't bring my own camera, but I have stolen proof of the party from my dear coworkers/friends. Not that any of you know them and all you really care about is checking ME out, so whatev. I'm waiting on a few choice selects to share with you, but these will do for now.
To help out those who detest long posts (Lisa), I'll separate out the Utah post.

Enlighten me

Am I the only person who likes lots of light on all the time? I go into a room and I want everything bright. All the lights on. Double lights in the bathroom, all the lights in the living room. Is that normal? I'm starting to think it's not. Because every time I'm with my family-in-law, they turn all the lights off except one. And then I'm sitting in the dusk (?) confused. Why don't you want it BRIGHT?!

PS: This is in no way an intentional call-out at the Larsen clan. I'm simply curious as to everyone's habits.

PPS: PSG Holiday Party, Correspondance Project, and Holid8 pics coming shortly. I'm having red-eye issues.
