Closing out the year.


I’m not usually a sequined girl, but I wore this Christmas sweater/scarf combination all weekend.  I’m trying to enjoy the holidays more – even though I am grinch-like.  It’s hard to turn these things around, like changing the direction on the Titanic.  Anyways, it was a nice weekend, very holiday-like with relatively good cheer.  We went to two parties on Saturday night.  One party where my sequined sweater was one of the dullest outfits around and the other where my sequined sweater stood out like a pimple on a teenager’s face.  When did “festive” attire mean black/blue/grey/silver? Oh well.  I managed to have conversations without feeling too awkward.

On Sunday, Jeremy wanted to go on a long bike ride.  Usually on Sundays like that, I just bum around the house with Edda.  But this time, I planned a whole road trip around the DC area.  Edda and I drove to Woodbine, MD, Tysons Corner, VA, Clifton, VA, Silver Spring, MD, Bethesda, MD and then all the way home.  I was out from 10 am to 8 pm, which really is some sort of endurance record for me and Edda.  I got to see Caroline, just for a moment,  – who looks fantastic – and Caroline got to make fun of my sparkly crazy Christmas sweater.
