Amiah brought over this Justin Bieber tour bus that she got for Christmas; I have to say that they didn't make toys like that when I was a kid! The amount of detail was pretty extraordinary, and you can plug an iPod into it to play (presumably Justin Bieber) music. And, okay, y'all can make fun of me ... but I watched the whole Justin Bieber movie with her too. >.< Hey, it gives my mil some much-needed grown-up time. That's my excuse.
I was never a fangirl of any boy singers or boy bands when I was younger. New Kids on the Block failed to romance me--although I remember dancing wildly with my sister to a tape our mom bought for us at the Price Club (she was probably trying to help us become cool, but that waren't happening!)--and by the time Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, et al came around, I was getting a little long in the tooth, although I did go with my very fangirly little sis-in-law Erin to see the Backstreet Boys in concert once. I remember telling a customer at The Piece that I was going, and she said, "Oh, how sweet of you to take your little sister--good luck putting up with the music!" and feeling embarrassed to tell her that Erin bought the tickets for me for my birthday! Ha! We definitely went more for Erin than for me, but we had fun and still talk about that concert.
After midnight, we watched Bridesmaids, since my mom makes anyone who drinks spend the night ... so yeah, we all had to spend the night.
Today is the last day of winter break. :( Tomorrow is back to the darlings. I have no idea what to expect from that; they were wild after Thanksgiving break, and this one was almost three times as long. I was thinking back to two years ago, when I took some time off around the holidays when I was still at the WAU, and I still remember the despair I felt at having to go back. It's nice to not have to despair about going back to work. I'm mostly not looking forward to having to get up early, and I was hoping to get a lot more planning done over winter break than I have.
