Happy 2013!

Hope everyone had a lovely new year! An awful cold has struck the JQ Lounge, and mama bear, papa bear and baby bear have all been coughing up a storm. Hopefully its passing VERY SOON, because one thing you should never cross paths with, is a very annoyed, very pregnant Julie because someone got us sick! Nish. Nish.

But instead of focusing on the bad, let's focus on the good.
How do we get the Yule Log on demand all year round?!
Tough Guy and I had an awesome Christmas with our little lady. Since we're throwing a new sibling into the mix next Christmas, she got spoiled a little more than usual.

Good news is, she didn't really notice that, so we actually haven't opened up half of her presents yet! I figure we can introduce a new one every other week from now on, and she'll be happy as a clam! We made some yummy things on Christmas morning, courtesy of Pinterest. I wish those cookies above were something that I created, but no, I just drooled over them at Layla Grayce's blog!

December is such a fun month, but what's not fun? The hiatus that all television shows take during the holiday month!!

But luckily, I was able to check out a little show on ABC called Scandal, and lets just say.. I am absolutely HOOKED. This show is amazing. I dig it. And if you dig me? You'll dig it to. Trust.  Plus, there are only 7 episodes in season 1, so you don't even have to be that much of a psycho to catch up to season 2 that's currently running now on Thursday nights after Gray's Anatomy. One more thing-- if you like Revenge.. I think you should just switch to this show all together. Revenge has been absolutely terrible this season!!! I keep tuning in thinking it'll go back to the bad ass days, but its stupid and confusing now. Poop to that.

I also rewatched Season 1 of HBO's Girls to get ready for Season 2 starting next week. Holy crap, that show is great. Its even better watching it the second time.. also, the Season 2 preview just freaking makes me so happy. If you haven't checked it out, here ya go. It also features Ellie Goulding's 'Anything Could Happen' song that I'm also obsessed with at the end.

Hopefully January will be a nesting month getting ready for the new baby boy (due early February!) I just want to spend the next month giving Lil C a giant bear hug, but I'm sure she'd just tell me "Listen lady, just let me go play with my toys" Speaking of, we're starting to get some chit chat out of C these days! She's like the happiest little creature on earth, its so funny to all of a sudden hear her bust out these new words! My favorite? Whenever there's a dog present in a room, she immediately throws her hand up in the air and commands them to SIT!!!!! I think its the attitude she shows with it that makes my sassy little heart melt.  I forget that babies always be growing up. Too fast, man. Too fast.

I just want you to know that I regularly laugh out loud at your writing. This time it was the Yule Log commentary that really got me. Your personality just shines through everything you write.
