And so it begins

Happy Friday loves!
Was it just me or did the week seem to c-r-a-w-l?! I'm so ready for the weekend. We've made it to December and so the holiday festivities begin! Tonight is the Grand Illumination downtown. This means two things. 1) Christmas is finally here. 2) There will be an ungodly amount of traffic and I'm smack dab in the middle of it. Trying to leave work will be a nightmare!! Ah, patience Sarah, patience.

They have several trees and all of the reindeer all lit up- including Rudolph, who has a very faint red nose. It's always been fun to try and see who finds him first. I've only been to this event once and that was enough for me. It was fun to be in the middle of it all but there were just way too many people. And it was cold. No bueno.

Tonight also marks the start of the Christmas party madness - 
and it's Casino themed!
That's right. This girl is picking up some skills for Vegas! 
So it should be fun. I'm excited....and I've heard that these parties are a blast. Wish me luck girls! {If it's anything like the last time I played blackjack, I'll walk away with $36, fake money} Ah! So frustrating!!

Tomorrow night is the Tech/Clemson game in Charlotte. I definitely wish I could go! In hindsight, I would've taken that ticket but I think last weekend was just too much for me and I need to watch the game in a 'controlled' environment. If they win though, I'm gonna try to get tickets to the next game. Fingers crossed! A group of friends are all getting together to watch it somewhere and we're all Tech fans so it should be fun! Anyway, you all better be rootin' for the Hokies, or you aren't welcome back on this blog! {totally kidding! ....but I'm not ;) }
all i'm sayin'

I think we're putting our tree up this weekend but we're waiting until Olivia comes home next weekend to decorate it. Hurry up already Liv!! 

And finally, Rachel over at just peachy is having a giveaway to celebrate exceeding 200 followers! Congrats girl :)

Do you have any fun holiday plans this weekend?
