Merry Christmas!

I woke up this morning very early (6 f*ing am) because I can't sleep because I'm so excited for our little event tonight. I'm going to try to go back to bed in a little bit, so I can stay up LATE tonight. On weeknights, I am asleep by 9pm... so I'm hoping to make it to 9:30 or 10 tonight. Just kidding (I hope).

I think part of the problem of why I woke up was that I was STARVING. It's the time of the month where I start swelling, and my band is t.i.g.h.t! I couldn't even finish one chicken finger for dinner last night. I tried right before bed and got a few more bites down. I woke up HUNGRY and grabbed some cereal and milk, which I only do rarely on weekends. Went down smoooooth(ish), and now I feel infinitely better.

Since my entire family is still asleep, because it's Saturday and that's what you're SUPPOSED TO DO, unless you're me. Anyway, while they sleep in, I've been checking international news for conversation topics (there are no safe domestic topics in my opinion). And also googling my CEO. And have decided to keep it really down to earth. I have a few conversation pieces up my sleave (except my dress is sleaveless, so maybe stashed in my bra?)... but I'm feeling pretty calm about the whole thing. Worst case scenario, Mr W and I just hang out together all dressed up.

OH. And best part... we rented a jacuzzi suite for the night. That's the REAL reason I need to be able to stay awake past 9:30! He's obviously getting HIS rest right now... sooooooooo....

I'm going to do a VLOG and take some pictures before we leave for the evening. I'm excited to have my whole outfit, hair and makeup, all put together. Worried that it won't look as good as I think it will. But, I'm sure it will be fine. And, I'm going to do "before" pics, and maybe even let you see "it" in my VLOG. Ugh. Please promise to still like me after you've seen this?

Ok, back to bed... love and hugs and kisses...


  1. I promise to LOVE you after this! You're going to look fantabulous - as usual!

  2. Sounds like so much fun! You will look great and I am sure the conversation will flow without and trouble!
    How awesome is that? a night away....Very cool!

    My back to work schedule and what not has me behind on all the bandster trip blogs. I am going to catch up this weekend. I know I have a couple replies I owe to you... If you have an email address you are willing to share with me it might work out better... If so, email me at

    I'm thinking positive for your upcoming surgery! I love that you are having it on the bands anniversary. My lapband surgery was done on my brothers birthday (he was killed in a car accident in 1983) My leg surgery was done on the day he was killed. It sounds morbid but my family has grown to celebrate his life on those days. (He drank Segrems 7, so we all toast to him and do a shot in his name) I felt like they were good ju-ju days for me. I am thinking the same for you sharing the date with your TT!!!
    Have a great time!

  3. Have a fantastic time! Can't wait to see you in all your fabulousness!

  4. YESSSS! ON the vlog! yes yes yes!!!!

  5. Wanted to respond to your comment asking if I'm near Maryland. YES! I grew up in Parkville and we moved to New Freedom, PA (right over the Maryland line) 3 years ago. Hope you have fun and HE got plenty of rest. :-)
