Holiday Preparations Galore!

So I am attempting my first email post...we'll see how that goes...

Anyways I am stuck on yet another train ride from hell brought to you by the lovely NJ Transit. It's honestly a bit more than ridiculous at this point that the can't seem to get their act together, when I spend a little over $400 a month to ride this annoyance.
Today is the day before Christmas eve & my 3rd day on vacay from work. I know what you are thinking, but if you are on vacay then why the hell are you headed into nyc? Easy I have some last min errands to run & tonight I get to have dinner with my Andi!!! Mexican coffee shall abound!!!! Although, & I'm pretty sure she will agree, I would KILL to be at World Cafe Live down in Philly tonight to see Find Vienna play, along with a bunch of other awesome bands that are in the line up. All & all the line up just sounds like an awesome mish mash of great local Philly artists. Never thought I'd wanna live anywhere but NYC but today? Kinda wish I was a native of Philly. Guarantee that statement will come back to haunt me at some point.

Moving on, am now on my 3rd train of the day, headed out to LI. Did my errands in RECORD time thank you very much, & now it is off to kill some time at my parents' house. First I have to drop something off where my mom works, then hopefully it is off to mooch some food so I am not completely ravenous before my dinner date.

We're off to Iguana for dinner tonight & I could not be more excited. Haven't been since my birthday...otherwise know as the time Andi decided to sic the waiters on me with a VERY large black sombrero [insert slight glare here]. Their Mexican coffee is the main reason to go, sure the food & margaritas/mojittos are quite tasty but...the cafe mexicano? To die for. Andi & I sorta adopted it as our place a few years ago, & since then it is our place of celebration, holidays, birthdays or just plain old I missed you terribly & we need to catch up-ness. Tonight is our annual holiday get together, which we've been doing for as far back as I care to remember. It's just a nice way to relax during all the hustle & bustle of the season.

To be fair tho I am mostly done with the craziness. I'm pretty sure all the shopping (at least the shopping I was assigned) is done & most everything is wrapped & ready to go. All I really have left is just a little bit of baking & the bundling up of baked goods as all & all I'm pretty serene on things. Having the time off has been nice too, despite the fact that the boy has had to work late every night this week...figures right?

Meh we'll see how next week goes, since I'm off till the 3rd...
