Christmas is the best.

Merry Day-After Christmas Day! I’m one of the lucky ducks that did NOT have to go to work today, so I got to sleep in and do other stuff. But since since I’m home now, I thought I’d share pictures and stuff you with you! It could wait until Sarah Sunday, but I have free time now and no review to post, so there we have it.

01Christmas Day

So, some various Christmas Day pictures. I wish I had taken more of my siblings, nephew L, and the tree and stuff. I think my siblings took a lot of pictures though, so I need them to text some to me. I was busy cookin and stuff. Also, my hair looks terrible in that picture. I need to get my hair trimmed, but I kind of ran out of time/money last week.

This was the first Christmas morning I’ve got to have with the honeyman in at least 2 years, so it was very exciting to wake up and make coffee and open stuff together. Some of the amazing things he bought for me – ROTATING EFFING BOOK SHELF, this amazing purse that can be worn a bunch of different ways, including as a thigh rig, books, all three Adele cds, the complete series of Charmed in that fancy Book of Shadows case, Outlander book charm, Hyperspace by Michio Kaku, Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, an Amazon gift card, a tragic-guy leather jacket, and other things. He’s the best. And seriously, YAY for bookish gifts!

Also, I was very lucky to receive a Keurig Elite from friends, a 3-tier oven rack (and serving spoons) from my sister Heather, Jam by Yahtzee Croshaw from my brother EJ, some tee shirts, picture frames from my little sister Amanda, and other just awesome stuff and everybody is the best and I love them.

03 more Christmas gifts

I am SO excited about so much of this stuff guys, you have no idea. The honeyman is supposed to put my new bookshelf together this weekend, and there will definitely be pictures of it coming.

Some things I was super excited to give to the honeyman: a gunstock war club, Wii U, games, movies, and high-precision gaming dice.

Not that everything was all materialistic and whatnot. The best part of Christmas was that on Christmas Eve, Treland and I got to stay home and play Black Ops 2 together, make pizza, play Phase 10, drink hot cocoa and just generally hang out together. Christmas morning we unwrapped stuff, hooked up the Wii U, and were able to hang out together for a bit before people started coming over. I just loved having two days off with him 🙂

The only lousy thing about Christmas this year? It’s the first Christmas I didn’t get to see my mom, cause she’s off travelling in North Carolina right now. It was weird not having a big thing at her house, even though I think it went pretty well having my siblings come here. And my dad is in jail of course, and this is the first Christmas since my grandma died. So I missed all of them a bit. Still, overall, this was a fantastic Christmas and a great holiday season. I’m going to be spending the next week thinking about what I want out of 2013, reading/blogging wise and whatnot. I’m sure I’ll end up doing some sort of 2012 wrap-up post later.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Tell me about any exciting presents you got or funny family stories! I’m off to watch Star Wars: The Phantom Menace now.




  1. I’m glad you had such a good time at Christmas!! And it’s nice to be able to just spend time with Treland and your family without having to worry about work 🙂 The food looks amazing by the way!
    Yesterday I learned you guys only celebrate one day of Christmas, we have two here, so yesterday was still filled with Christmasy goodness for me 🙂
    I hope the rest of your week will be wonderful as well!


    1. Oooo 2 days of Christmas! We KIND of have two days, because of Christmas Eve, but I don’t think most people count that because a lot of people still have to work a half day or longer, so Christmas Eve dinner a big thing.


  2. I love your Outlander charm!! That is sooo cute! And the rotating bookshelf! And the oven rack! Win! I love being able to spend time with family and friends over the holidays. 🙂 I’m glad you had a good one!
