Who Doesn't Love an Update with a Funny Video?

(Can you tell I couldn't think of a title for this post?)

Oh, weekend.  How I heart thee.  Here's to hoping 5:00 p.m. shows up quickly today.  We have two important meetings, so that will make the time fly, I'm sure.  We're going to the local German Christmas Fest this weekend, and guess what?  I finish my first term of grad school this weekend.  Heyooo!  It's going to be a good weekend.  I just know it.

Highlights this week:

1.) I just can't get enough of these two.

2.) I called Grandma Cristina on Wednesday to wish her a Happy Birthday, and a lot of my relatives happened to be at her house.  They all dropped by separately but at the same time.  I think it's safe to say she felt loved.  I'll see them again when we Skype  on Christmas Eve!

3.) I caught up with Kerry and her daughter, Aili.  (How awesome is that name?)  They are so fun to chat with.  I hadn't seen Aili since I held her as a baby!

4.) I already dished on how much fun I had at the blogger holiday party last weekend, but the Smile Booth photos weren't available yet.  Here are my favorites:

With Julianne from Francesca's Collection, Rebekah from Fashion and a Fellow, and Haley from Style Sound

With Meg from O. is Me, Michelle from Texas Tanners, Cait from A Day in the Life,
Whitney from The Observant Turtle, and Selena from The Heights Life

5.) Do you love Instagram?  You'll love this video.  Do you hate Instagram?  You'll love this video too.  You must watch it!  It's hilarious and very true.

Happy weekend!  Enjoy it!

No joke...I watched that video last night for the first time, and I have had the song stuck in my head all day.

guilty of every. single. thing. on this video! haha :)

I got you something at a real German Christkindlmarkt (Christ Child market) yesterday. I couldn't resist.

I don't know if they'll have it at the fest where you're going, but if so, drink a cup of gl├╝wein. I personally find it disgusting, but it's a German tradition at Christmas time. :)

Woo hoo first semester down! (me too!) And that jumping picture is too fun!

Devon said...

that is the funniest video I've seen in months. I was laughing out loud the whole time. The funny thing is, it's so true! We all love to instagram that shit.

On another note, congrats on finishing the first term of grad school! Enjoy your weekend. It sounds like you earned it!

Love that pic of you guys jumping! You should get a print and put it in a eye-catching frame for your desk! I´d love to have a pic like this of my and my friends. I imagine it would put me in a cheery mood even on the most stressful day :)

Hooray for Skype, it's so great to being able to connect that easily with friends and family that live far away.
I am so thankful for it.
I love your blogger holiday party shots! You Ladies look great.
