Merry Post-Christmas!


How was everyone's Christmas?! What did you guys get? I had an AMAZING day and feel so lucky to have been able to spend time with people I love. Plus, the presents didn't exactly hurt, either. ;p

I think my fave gift is an Apple gift card. I'll def use that when I'm at school and want to buy new music. I also got a Barnes & Noble gift card which I prob won't even be able to wait another day to spend. I've already got a window open on my computer and am scrolling through books that sound good. I also got a gift certificate to Stateline Tack. Whisper really needs a new lead line, so it was parfait timing.

We have this tradition in my fam that everyone makes a new dish or drink for Christmas dinner. I researched homemade apple spiced cider and Becca helped me make it. Luckily, everyone loved it! :) Anyone else have family traditions on Christmas? Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? I've tried for YEARS to convince my parents to let Becca and me open our gifts on Christmas Eve but no go. They always make us wait till the morning. Actually, I really love that feeling of waking up and running out to the living room and finding presents under the tree and the fireplace lit.

Tell me all about your Christmas! I hope it was warm, wonderful, and filled with loved ones!

Christmas is almost here! :)

It's the moooost wonderful time of the year! :D

It really is because . . . ARGH! I can't tell you guys yet--it's a HUGE secret that's going to be revealed in HOME FOR CHRISTMAS. So I have to wait until next fall for you to find out. Boo. :( BUT BUT BUT what I can say is that I think it's going to be the most unforgettable Christmas ever.

I'm going home soon and I'm really excited. :)

There are lots of awesome things I want to do over break, like:

Watch: A Charlie Brown Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Elf, and whatever movies Becca wants to see

Eat lots of cookies (Mom and I make gingerbread people every year!) and sweets!

Drink a zillion and a half cups of these teas: Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride, Candy Cane Lane, Gingerbread Spice, Nutcracker Sweet and Sugar Plum Spice.

Play Wii against Becca! (We love tennis!)

And that's just the start of my list! What's on yours? Are you traveling for Christmas? Fill me in!
