So we were feeling festive this weekend (between my icky feeling) and decided to do a little holiday shopping. We tried to go to the mall to see Santa but that was a joke! My child would have been in no condition to photograph after waiting in that line! So we shopped. We also went to a groovy new shopping center in Baton Rouge called Perkins Rowe. They have an Urban Outfitters and everything! That cute little cajun scene above is from there. So here are a few more of my favorite pics from hanging out this weekend with my boys.
I love all these new pics but still don't think I have a Christmas card picture yet! Grrrrr!~
Ok, so to the hater nation part of the post....
So have you ever ran into an old "friend" and could feel the jealousy? I mean literally feel the "hard" feelings? Ok, so I ran into an old friend of a friend (don't speak to either anymore) in the store the other day and she stop and spoke but only because it was unavoidable... To be honest I would have avoided her if I could have. Anyways, I could just feel her jealousy. It was strange. Now I don't think we are anything to be jealous of...by any means! We are just an average family living in a tiny house in a small town. We have modest jobs and drive inexpensive used cars. BUT we have each other and I could tell when she was talking to us she resented that. I don't know...maybe I'm way off here but does anyone else ever get that feeling? I mean I haven't seen this girl since the day she got married and then I see her and she takes one look at me and my hubby and our little boy and has this "look" on her face. It was bizarre to say the least and uncomfortable. Not only that, she didn't even comment on my kid. Didn't ask his name, how old he was, didn't say he was cute or that he looked like either one of us or anything. Now I'm not fishing for compliments on my child...but you would think an old acquaintance would be curious and have some concern about him. It just made me sad that people can be like that. Miserable and hateful.
It just put a damper on my holiday spirit.
