Christmas Party & Concert

Corey's work party was a few weekends ago. I haven't gotten dressed up in a while so I thought I should curl my hair to look extra fancy. After an hour of holding the curling iron up I was losing patience and blood flow and started getting irritable. This is how it always goes in our house. Corey will tell me what time we need to leave at. I will start getting ready way too early, lose interest and then about 10 minutes before we leave he will remind me and I'll start frantically getting my crap together. Then, when the announced time has arrived he will say, "Babe, let's go" to which I will reply, "Why are you always rushing me?! Aaaahhhh!!!" He will remain silent and stand by the open front door while I hastily and angrily finish getting ready until we are in the car and I start apologizing. I'm so glad I have such a patient husband who has gotten used to living with a crazy woman. I know I'm no crazier than anyone else so he would've gotten a crazy wife regardless, but he has adjusted so well :) 


We spent the night at Pamela's house and were able to go to her Christmas concert the next day. She plays the clarinet in 2 different bands and we went to a Veteran's Day concert last month, but I forgot my camera. This band was more energetic and it was such a great show.

Well whatever you did to get ready, you look pretty hot. I bet your hubby thought so too:)

Corey's a smart guy. He knows how lucky he is to have you Carrie! I'm glad he's a patient husband, cause you are one of the least crazy people I know.

Just wait until you have kids. Getting yourself ready and then wrestling an unruly 2-yr-old into submission is nearly impossible without the help of a few suckers for bribes. So just tell Correy to count his lucky stars! At least he doesn't have to feel like a cattle wrangler. Yet.
