The Good Stuff!

Eric and I had a WONDERFUL first Christmas together.
Of course, since I work in retail, my holiday is always cut a little short... but we certainly do make the very most of our time!
We spent Christmas Eve with my mom and brother in Grapevine, Texas... then woke up early on Christmas day and drove to Elgin, Texas to see Eric's family. We stayed the night in Elgin and drove back home to Fort Worth on the 26th by 10:00am, and I was at work by noon that same day!
Here are some pictures of our whirlwind of a Christmas...
it may have been fast, but it was filled with
love, laughter, family, friends, and LOTS of food!
You know...
{the good stuff}
One of my best friends, Corbin, went with my family to a Christmas program at Prestonwood Baptist Church... it was amazing and immediately got everyone in the Christmas Spirit!! This is Corbin, my brother--Trevor, brother's girlfriend--Lizzie, and I after the program.
Eric and I at his grandparent's house on Christmas day
with our furbabies, Lucky and Louis!
Lucky and Louis spread lots of Christmas cheer
with these adorable shirts! :)
With Eric's family on Christmas day :)
We gave Eric's grandparents a super amazing
massage chair for Christmas and they were SOOO excited!
His grandparents both have back and leg problems,
so this chair should really help them with stimulating
circulation and massaging sore muscles.
His grandpa didn't get out of the chair for the WHOLE
rest of the day!! hahaha!! :)

'Tis the Season...

Have I ever mentioned that I have the most wonderful friends in the world?


Well, I {definitely} do!


We always get together to do something for Christmas... a party and gift exchange of some sort. This year, Sarah, Taylor and Corbin organized the party. It was held at Corbin's amazing high-rise Loft which overlooks West 7th Street. We had appetizers, cocktails, wine, champagne, and we did a white elephant gift exchange.

{I have realized after talking to some of my family members in Colorado that apparently not everyone knows what a white elephant gift exchange is... so if you are one of those people, you can learn about it by clicking this trusty Wikipedia link.}


Here are some of our fun and funny pictures from our 2010 Christmas party...

Let's play Catch-Up!!!!

Where has the time gone???
Are the holidays already over???
Has it really been almost TWO MONTHS since I have updated my blog?!?
That's sad. But I guess that's what the Holidays in Retail will do to you! Thankfully, my current job doesn't require me to work WAY more than normal... but the mall does have extended holiday hours during the month of December, so by the time I got home each night I just wanted to relax or sleep.
With that being said... I have NOT stopped talking pictures to document all of the wonderful happenings since my last post... so be on the look-out for several new blog postings very soon!!
