Christmas Aftermath

Wowza! These first couple days of holiday break have FLOWN right by! Saturday was spent finishing up shopping & Sunday I was at family party #1 followed by a stop at a family friend's holiday open house. Monday was brunch at my place with my best friends from high school (a tradition!) and then Christmas Eve dinner and presents at my mom and stepdad's house. Finally, about 18 family members came to my place on Christmas day so I spent the morning preparing/cooking up a storm!

Now that it's over I will spend today taking all the Christmas decorations down because I want my house 'in order' again.  Plus, I have a ton of grading to get done over this break and I want to get organized and do my 'chores' before then!

Oh, big news...I finally got an iPhone!  I'm LOVING this thing so far, particularly Instagram! I love the idea of being able to easily document my life through pictures! Exhibit A:

Picture 1 is my holiday table, 2 is a lovely new ornament given to me by my grandmother, 3 is yummy Christmas baked goodies (don't you LOVE those silver serving platters from Target?), and 4 is my front door, all 'blinged' out!

I love this time of year but am happy to slow down a bit this vacation...grade some papers, get organized, read some books, and spend time with friends!
