One of the perks of getting into the post-scheduling groove is that I only really need to spend a few hours on Friday getting things set for the week. (Other than weekend pictures and post-Mass fashion shoots.) One of the downsides of that set-up is that, on long holiday weekends, I very rarely feel compelled to bust out my computer to schedule things for the next.

But it’s all good, because Jenna’s here to give me a platform to give you a bullet point list.

TL;DR

  • We’re back from our trip and I haven’t told you all nearly enough about it. I know, I know, I really need to put on my recap hat and show you all the pictures but it’s actually a little depressing to write about. Here I am, living my regular old life and it’s actually kind of a bummer to remind myself that I was doing something so awesome just a few weeks ago.
  • Grad school is coming and the grants and scholarships keep on rolling in, which is excellent. Especially because I had forgotten how much textbooks cost.
  • Bret lost 12 pounds in Europe. I lost 8. More impressively, I managed to keep it all off over Thanksgiving. Now, I feel like I need to find something that will help keep this fitness momentum going. What do we know about Pure Barre? 
  • Here are some pictures I think you’d like to see:

It has recently come to my attention that there are, in fact, actual people left in the world who -- honest-to-goodness -- hate Catholics. Is it too passive aggressive to send them the most Catholic-y Christmas cards known to man?

Just two short weeks ago, we were going to daily Mass here. Now, we're slowly freezing to death in Chicago. womp womp.
