Anyhoo moving on, my weekend was all full of holiday and craziness so let's recap shall we:
Friday: After work I headed over to my father-in-law (still so weird to say, haha)'s house for dinner which was loverly. We all hung out for a bit before Matt and I came home for a bit before heading to our local dive bar to meet up with some family. The whole night was just fun with some drinking and hanging out and catching up and laughing and oh how I heart my family.
Saturday: Woke up earlyish to go get our Christmas tree with Matt's dad which was way too much fun. I love getting our tree every year, it's just so official and holiday and yay! After we got our trees we all went out to brunch which was nice. I mean what better way to start off a day of holiday shopping madness than with some mimosas and an omlette (none that I can think of that's for sure!). Afterwards Matt and I were shopping maniacs going on and on and on.
After shopping we came home to decorate the tree! Ah! My favoritest part, listening to Christmas music and decorating, loverly. And I am quite the fan of the final product:
all lit up!
Eventually we needed a break and that break came in the form of a dinner date to Cheesecake Factory (seriously I don't know that I've ever had a bad meal there, it's so damn delicious) and a movie date to see the newest Narnia flick (which I loved). Basically twas one ridiculous day followed by some loverliness.
Sunday: Slept in til about eleven (I mean really, can I do that every day) before getting up and at em for another frantic filled day of Christmas shopping. I freaking finished shopping for everyone on my list (including myself, I mean it was pretty much a necessity to own these shoes right?). After shopping Matt and I decided to head on over to Universal Studios to check out Grinchmas and get into the holiday spirit (despite the fact that it was freaking eighty degrees, so so wrong!).
happy wholidays everyone!
a very whoville looking tree.
even the Simpsons are in the holiday spirit.
some whos dancing around
another whotastic tree.
and the Grinch himself even showed up.
the tree in CityWalk was pretty
sweet looking as well.
After Universal we headed on over to the Americana for dinner and just some more Christmasness, seriously I am a sucker for lights and fake snow. The rest of the night was spent starting our Christmas/thank you cards (oh man what a process this is going to be) and watching some shows and just relaxing, loverlyness.
And that was my weekend, whew. And how was yours? Anything Christmassy going on?
