I don’t know about y0u all, but I’m a little holidayed out at this point.
I mean, don’t get me wrong – I LOVE all the tacky sweaters and cookies and presents (and of course booze) that come with the holidays – but I’m kind of ready to have my weekends back. And remember what it’s like to sleep in.
This Christmas/NYE was no exception. In fact, it was probably even more insane due to the fact that it was our first Christmas as a married couple. Which basically meant we had to see as many people as possible.
So popular… I know.
But this holiday season included:
1 Tacky Christmas party
5 Kinds of cookies baked
2 Hours looking at Christmas lights
19 Hours of driving
36 Hours of straight eating
and goodness knows how many glasses of wine…
So let’s recap with some pictures, shall we? I’ll narrate them as best I can, although some need no description.
Tacky Christmas Party
Every year some of my best friends host a Tacky Christmas party, complete with white elephant exchange. It also usually includes a ridiculous amount of baked goods. This year was NO exception.
Ok, so these last two DO need an explanation.
During the party I found out that our host’s apartment actually was owned by Kerri Strug, the famous Olympic gymnast. Which pretty much was the best thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life, since I’m basically obsessed with all things gymnastics. So the above photos are me sitting on/touching Kerri’s stool that she left, and then myself, Emily and Christine re-enacting the famous Karri olympic vault.
Looks exactly the same, right?
New Years Eve
We were down in Georgia for New Years visiting Chris’ family, and we actually ended up at a family friend’s NYE party. It was definitely different than some of my past NYE experiences, but still fun nonetheless.
It also involved a complete sober photoshoot between Chris’ sister and I. Which went downhill really quickly…
Yup, that pretty much sums up my holiday, right there.
So there you have it, a nice little recap of my holiday experience. I am happy to say that I can FINALLY get back to normal life. Starting with going back to work today… ick.
So tell me: What are your best memories from this holiday season?
