Happy Tuesday (although I wish I was still in bed to tell ya the truth). It's definitely tough going back to work after having 3 glorious days off from it. Thankfully it's a 4 day work week and the weekend ahead means another 3 day weekend, so I'm cool with that. Side note, can Christmas & New Year's always fall on a weekend?!
This is mostly going to be a photo dump post, even though I could have taken some more pictures of our Christmas Eve party we went to.
On Friday evening, I was really craving sushi, so we had a little date night at our favorite sushi place.
Saturday was spent mostly getting chores done and cleaning around the house. We then had a Christmas party to go to. It was so much fun and I wish I had more pictures, but the only time I took my phone out was to get some snapchats. We did a white elephant exchange and I got shafted with a plunger...yeh wasn't too thrilled about that, but we made out with a cool bar set & salad bowl set so I wasn't too disappointed. After the party we headed to one of the cousins house to watch a movie and play games.
Sunday morning we slept in, it felt so good! I FaceTimed with my sister and parents as they opened their gifts. My fur-nephew was loving his penguin onesie I got for him.
That afternoon I spent watching Hallmark movies in my Christmas PJ's.
We then decided to open gifts, let's just say I think I got plenty spoiled this Christmas. I was expecting nothing this year since we have some huge trips coming up later this year, but hubby surprised me with a beautiful necklace from the same collection as my engagement ring.
After eating dinner at home, hubs and I headed out to the River Oaks neighborhood to check out the lights. Y'all if you are in Houston during the holidays, you have to check out this neighborhood. I totally over-snapped, but I couldn't get enough! The houses were so beautifully decked out with Christmas lights and displays. We decided to park and walk the streets since it was a beautiful and humid evening, plus the car traffic was just too much for me.
I hope y'all had an amazing time celebrating and spending time with loved ones. Even though I was missing my family this Christmas, I was thankful to have gotten new traditions started for years to come.
Linking up with Biana for Weekending.
