Christmas 2013

Christmas Vacation

I’ve taken a break from blogging this past week to truly enjoy my Christmas vacation. This is my first Christmas vacation in nearly 8 years, and I wanted to make the most of it. I’ve spent my time hanging out with family and friends, shopping, taking a trip to the movies to see 47 Ronin (good film), a short date night with the boyfriend and lounging around in my pjs and new robe bum style. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable holiday and look forward to the coming New Year. Here are a few pictures from my Christmas vacation including a few of my gifts.

Sokka Christmas Kitty

Sokka with his Christmas gift. He didn’t want to look at me for these pictures :( Cats are so uncooperative.

Keyboard Huntington KB61

I asked Santa for a keyboard this Christmas. I want to teach myself to play and I find it useful to have a keyboard handy when I’m learning to play a song by ear with my trumpet.

Freshwater Pearl Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings

My Nana gave me a lovely set of freshwater pearls. I can’t wait to wear this.

Pink Phone Case Sansung Victory

A new pink phone case for my phone.

Anntourage Kimono Robe

My boyfriend gave me this silky kimono robe. The fabric is so soft, I love it!

Owl Scarf Holder

Super cute owl scarf holder from my parents. It’s already nearly full!

Belgian Waffle Maker

A Belgian waffle maker. I’m so excited to make some waffles with this thing!

Rabbit Aerating Pourer

Wine aerator. I’m curious as to whether or not this really makes a difference. I can’t wait to crack this bottle open and find out.

Nerd Gifts

My collection of nerd gifts this Christmas. A couple of Stargate books (my boyfriend buys me some every year), a Kon stuffed animal (from Bleach), a Peter Pan ornament from my parents (Peter Pan was my favorite movie for for a long time when I was a kid) and a Bazinga ornament (this one was actually a gift for my boyfriend, I just really like it, lol).

Christmas Breakfast

Breakfast Christmas morning; French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, orange juice and coffee in my new rose gold Starbucks mug. I saw that mug on sale a week ago and had to buy it. My Christmas gift to me!

Christmas Vacation FOTDMy FOTD from a short (and horrible!) trip to the mall for the Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale. My sister gave me the lovely scarf I’m wearing.

    Great post lovely, looks like you had a fabulous Christmas. Adore those pearls, my sister received pearls for her 21st and recently wore them for her wedding and the they looked gorgeous. The Kimono is stunning too. Would love it you could check out my what I got for Christmas post, titled ‘Thanks Santa Baby’ over on my blog Linzylabellevie No pressure :)

      It stayed on until I took it off. It had a twist tie. He definitely wasn’t a fan of it though.
