It's Christmas Eve!

Ah, Christmas Eve! I do hope you're having a fabulous time celebrating with your loved ones. I'm currently watching Christmas movies and eating Christmas cookies while simultaneously drafting a talk for sacrament meeting tomorrow. Even though I don't actually live in my home ward anymore, they somehow talked me into both giving a talk AND playing piano in church tomorrow! Sigh.

And tomorrow afternoon I will be flying out to the magical Midwest to be with Mr. Director so I the fam!

Oh, don't give me that look! Everyone is making this into a much bigger deal than it really is. People fly across the country all the time to spend a week with friends. Who are also of the opposite gender.
Okay okay. So maybe it's a somewhat noteworthy occurrence. But don't get too excited--I'm NOT coming out of this week with a ring on my finger or anything like that.

I am looking forward to endless gaming sessions of Bang!, Scrabble, and Mafia, all while simultaneously trying to be my most charming and gregarious self. Wish me luck! I'm not the only one coming home to meet the family--Mr. Dir's younger brother is also bringing his girlfriend home, and she's lovely and charming as well. In fact, she used to be on Young Ambassadors, so she's also an incredibly gifted singer/dancer. It's a bit intimidating, even for one as seemingly confident as myself.
Oh, don't worry about me. I'm sure things will go just fabulously.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday! For those of you who are interested, Colonel Paisley's date contest is fixing itself up to be quite fantastic! I will say this: You'd better get your creative juices flowing if you want to win. ;)

Well, I'm going to go back to working on my talk and watching Eloise at Christmastime. If you've never seen it, it's one of my favorites. After all, it's about a meddling little girl who breaks up a wedding in the name of true love. Definitely my line of work. ;)

So, who wants to start betting on whether or not The Charmer comes out of this with a ring on her finger? I'm willing to start the pool at $5 for Yes.

If she doesn't I am going to be extremely disappointed.

Good luck Charmer! I hope you have a great time :)
And I, for the record, will trust you when you say you won't come out with a ring...even though I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one squealing with joy if you did!

Can I just say I highly approve of the fact that Bang! is in your game repertoire?

Ah... Blessed are those who've know Bang!

My first daughter will be named Eloise because of that delightful story.

You're on, McGee.. $5 says Mr. Director is clever enough to wait for a moment she's not expecting it. Sometime in the new year though :) Hope you're having a magical time, Charmer!

Well, since its the new year, I guess we will have to see who won the bet.

I just have to say: Careful Charmer, it sounds to me like you were trying to convince yourself of something you don't actually believe.

It's been my experience that when a girl says that to seemingly cut off any speculation, it is because it is her own speculation and hope as well. =P
