Hello everyone!! I hope you had an amazing holiday weekend. I know I did :D. I apologize for being absent from the blog world, but I wanted to enjoy my time with family!
On Friday, Chris and I went to his mom’s house for their Christmas celebration. She had lots of delicious food!
Soooo tasty :). It was really nice to hang out and enjoy a relaxing evening with some of Chris’s family.
Christmas Eve we went to our annual holiday party at my aunt’s house. As usual it was lots of fun! Plus I got to see my cousin that is pregnant and for the first time I was able to feel the baby kick. It was so cool!
For the gift exchange, I got a headlamp and a survival bracelet…not quite sure what I’m supposed to do with it because there are no directions haha. But Chris did rock the headlamp for a bit. I think he should wear it to our wedding, don’t you? 😉
Haha oh I love him.
And here’s a pic of me with my mom and brother!
On Christmas morning my brother actually woke me up. As I stated in my Christmas survey I have pretty much always been the first to get up and I tend to annoy my brother by waking him up way before he wants to. Well yesterday, he came barging in my room to get me out of bed. But I was excited for Christmas morning so I didn’t really care haha. Plus the pretty site of our tree, the presents, and a fire in the fireplace was awesome!
I was seriously one lucky girl this Christmas. I received so many great presents and I am really grateful for all of them! The one I was playing with all day yesterday was my new camera….a DSLR!!!! I got the Canon Rebel T3.
I am so excited to learn how to use this and take pretty pictures (at least pictures that I consider to be pretty haha). I played around with it for a bit yesterday and was able to snap a couple of our pets that came out so much better than they would have on my point and shoot.
All in all I had an amazing Christmas! This holiday season has been amazing and it was great to see so much family! Today, Chris and I are making the drive to Tennessee to stay in a cabin in the Smokey Mountains with my dad for a couple of days! We’ve never been so we’re really excited. Plus, I could use some serious amounts of walking and hiking after all of the indulging I did this weekend haha.
I hope you have a great Monday!
If you celebrated, how was your holiday weekend??
How do you get back into the swing of things after the holidays?
