My ward "closing social" is on Dec. 10th. It should be awesome. Food, slideshow, possibly my room-mates and I sharing a special talent on stage (we still need to ask).
Now rewind to yesterday, my boss decides that we will have our work Christmas party on the 10th. Oh no, what is a girl to do? I have been brainstorming this party with my boss since probably July. I love love love all my co-workers and have been really wanting to meet all their significant others.
Both events start at the same time. I see people in my ward all the time and I see people at work quite often as well. But I have reduced my hours, meaning I see them less. While I stew about it-- I will keep singing this lovely song by Brandi Carlile.
And I discovered a new band! Well I didn't really bring them fame or anything, but I really love them. SJ and I decided they are a nice blend between folk and electronica and harmony time. Take a listen, if you would like.
For the record: the song is called "fall into love" but I am in a marriage prep class right now and I have learned a great deal. I just want to say that I do know that there is no such thing as "falling in love." It is a decision, it is not something that just happens to you and you have to go with it. You do have control. So even though I like the song, I do not approve their message. Thank your ladies and gentleman.
If you enjoyed it, here is another. If not, so sad for you.
