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 with his Christmas gift. He didn’t want to look at me for these pictures Cats are so uncooperative.
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.
My Nana gave me a lovely set of freshwater pearls. I can’t wait to wear this.
A new pink phone case for my phone.
My boyfriend gave me this silky kimono robe. The fabric is so soft, I love it!
Super cute owl scarf holder from my parents. It’s already nearly full!
A Belgian waffle maker. I’m so excited to make some waffles with this thing!
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.
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).
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!
