Hey hey heyyyy! TGIAF!
In addition to working (but only a minimal 2-day schedule this week) I have been taking full advantage of being home, and hanging out with my sisters and friends! (and taking full advantage of my fully stocked kitchen! ;)… and lots and lots of sweets)
It has been great being home for a few days over this break – my little sis and big sis are BOTH IN TOWN.. my older sister leaves tomorrow though, (she is biking from San Diego to Santa Barbara!) so we have had to make the MOST of our time together!
Sunday night, we took a family mini-vacation to a nearby falls, then to dinner and spent the night in a small town near the base of a ski mountain, where we had a full day skiing Monday. It had been years since I have skiied, so I was a little worried, but it ended up being really fun — and I did well, too!
We were wiped after skiing a long day. Had dinner that night at Applebee’s and I had came home, crashed and worked all day Tuesday.
Tuesday, after work & hot power yoga, I came home and we went out to a fun German pub the next town over,
Key lime margaritas and sharing a salty german pretzel with spicy mustard were necessary components of the evening 😉
Backing up a little bit, a few days before Christmas, we (the fam) went to a Jazz dinner concert to see David Lanz. This was so much fun – good food, good music, good drinks!
All in all, an amazing night ❤
Well, I have a few more hours of work today, but may go to see another movie with my little sister tonight. My older sister left this morning, so it will be a little lonely
Also off to pick up my NEW UGGS after work!
My mom Santa got them for me, but they were out of stock, so today is the day *fingers crossed*!!
Musing: MOVIES! I saw Black Swan yesterday again with both sisters, and two of our friends. However, I left and watched a little of How Do you Know during the movie.. I had already seen it and wasn’t really feeling in the ‘Black Swan’ mood yesterday. I tend to see a LOT of movies over winter breaks – more so than usual. But, when you have
little nothing to do and lots of free time on your hands, and when it’s cold outside… why not?! I tend to love watching TV –food network?– too! So, so far this break, I have seen: Black Swan (x2), Fair Game, Little Fockers and a bit of How Do You Know. What movies have you seen? Do you watch more when you are on work / school breaks? How do you feel about leaving movies part-way through to ‘check out’ another one? <–This is something I don’t feel is ‘bad’ since I’m in the theatre for the same ~2 hours, and sometimes I just get bored in a movie and want to see what else is out there!
Best memories of this Christmas / holiday season / winter break? Favorite thing(S) you have done and ate with family and friend?!
Skiing and the David Lanz concert were both great… and bar crawl with my older sister.. veryyyy fun! Lots of great meals have been had by me, too: lots of baked goods, as I mentioned, plus sushi dinners, family dinners, my baking experiments… 😉
