Happy Thursday, friends!
Today will be full of cuddling up under a blanket with a sweet kitty, 'cuz it's cold! The frost in the picture above is from 8am yesterday, but today is similar. The "high" is 54, but it's mostly mid-40s and windy with little cloud coverage, which means it's frigid. I know I'm complaining, and I'll try to shut up about it, but I miss Washington!
Speaking of, we fly to Washington in 16 days (not that I'm counting). I can't wait! On the 29th of December, Baylor will be playing UW in the Alamo Bowl (sadly in Texas, so we can't go support). Since my fam are huge UW fans and Nick and I both have degrees from Baylor, we're on both sides. We've decided that we're going to layer our Baylor and UW shirts so that when one scores, we'll take off the top shirt (or put it back on) to support the scoring team. Um, awesome.
Yesterday at happy hour, our favorite bartender told us he needed to try out the new shot glasses and gave us a 007 shot with our margaritas. Yet another reason why we don't mind tipping 250% on a $2.25 bill.
On Tuesday, Jessica and I went to watch our favorite bassoon player (bassoonist?) Sarah play in the Waco Community Band for their annual Christmas concert and sing-along. The only part I didn't like? A section of the sing-along contained the song "I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In." How have I never heard this song? I blame my mother for lack of proper Christmas song education when I was younger.
In other news, my gratitude attitude for today is for Studly McDreamyEyes, who is currently sitting at the same table in Starbucks, studying for his finals. I'm lucky he puts up with me.

Happy Thursday! How is your day thus far?
