phew, its about time i wrote something about the holidays. ben was here from the 20th to just a few hours ago (he left for work somewhere around 11 something). i’m a bit lonely without him here… got kind of used to him being around every day. now we have to go back to the crappy 2 days a week thing *insert oversized pouty face here*
our holiday week was awesome and i really got a chance to see just how much he’s changed since we were kids.
he took me to visit my parent’s graves, and stood there holding me while i tried (and failed) not to be emotional. then he took me to red lobster which i haven’t been to in a long time, and we stuffed our faces full of unhealthy deep fried fish. then he took me to the mall so he could try to figure out something for me for my presents, cause i honestly couldn’t think of anything i wanted. we went into hot topic and i just felt so fucking OLD… and fat… ugh.. why do all the cool clothes only come in size zero? and since when is justin bieber appropriate for hot topic?? we also went to spencer’s which was fun and i was pretty surprised that they now have a wall full of adult toys just right out there in the open.
we stopped at a photo booth and took some goofy photos. this is my fave of the 4 on the little photo strip.
unfortunately we don’t have a scanner so this is a bad photo of a photo :p but we look cute and we were laughing our ass off the whole time.
we failed at getting presents at the mall so we went to barnes and noble where i got this amazing apple caramel coffee thing that tasted like liquid pie, and we found a cool witch book for his mom. then we picked up the bunny suicide books, and he got another zombie survival manual. this one is about combat. yes we are prepared for the zombie apocalypse. then we went to target, where we found a cool vincent price dvd set. we then tried to find a naughty store but it was closed, and we decided we were too tired to go on. so we went home, read books, ate left overs, and fell asleep watching movies.
a couple of days later we went down to my family’s home and rummaged though boxes of stuff in the storage shed. i found all my old vhs tapes, music cassettes, cds, books, and the thing i was looking for…
all the old mushy teenage letters ben wrote to me when we were in high school. they embarrass him to look at now, because he wrote them back when he was a dorky 15-17 year old but i think they are adorable, and its nice to be able to read them without getting upset and thinking about bad things that happened. we’re still dorks, but he is much better at writing mushy love letters.
xmas eve we visited his mom, gave her the book we found and she loved it. she made awesome dinner and gave us some nice presents. i got a fluffy bathrobe and fluffy pants and some other cool stuff. then ben took silly photos of us while we sat on the couch. i’ll spare you the majority of them, but here’s my two faves that i put on facebook:
yeah i know we are cute and its gross…
xmas morning we woke up and ben told me i had presents.. which he must have bought before he came home from work, because we never got anything while we were out! he handed me a sims 3 expansion pack (world adventures) and i was all happy that he paid attention to my rambling about videogames i liked… then i went to sit down on the couch and he told me to watch out cause i might sit on something, so i looked around and he’d bought me another expansion pack (pets) and half hid it in the blanket on my side of the couch.
the rest of the week was filled with us being lazy, and watching a lot of movies, and other stuff that i’m not going to talk about on my blog :p
so now after being spoiled on having him around all the time i’ve had to let him go back to work, and i know this week is going to be hard on both of us after all that. we’re not going to get to spend new years eve together which sucks, but he should be home on our two month anniversary at least, which will be nice.
i guess i should get some rest before he calls to wake me up!
