We returned home to our little Virginia abode after a fantastic five-day weekend of relaxation, food, and shopping with a lovely six hour trek through wind and rain with a car that made funny noises. Maybe it was stuffed too tight with Christmas gifts.
Either way, it was a wonderful Christmas--dare I say, one of the best ever? This year, Christmas break included (but was not limited to):
Lots and lots of bad-for-me food. Like cheese ball, meatballs, poppyseed roll, Boston creme pie, buckeyes, pineapple casserole, and hot chocolate. And cookies. Duh.
A five-game Rummyo winning streak by yours truly.
Chocovine. Aka chocolate wine that I found at World Market and had to bring a bottle of home. (The verdict from the Brodies: FANTASTIC! The verdict from everyone else: chocolate flavored nail polish. No worries, more for us.)
Christmas TV specials on HGTV.
Gathering round the table Christmas night with my best friends.
Awkward photo shoots by the tree.
I hope your holidays were as blessed as mine were. Awkward photo shoots and all.
