I hope everyone had a great holiday. I had an awesome time, besides being sick. I've been coughing for over a week now! It seems to be slowing down, so hopefully I'll be better by the weekend!
I spent Christmas Eve with my mom's side of the family. It was nice to see my cousin that only comes in from Denver for Christmas! I also got to see my other cousin's two boys. They are super cute. Too bad I had to stay away from them so they wouldn't catch my cold!
I spent Christmas with my boyfriend's family. He's from a small town in Illinois. It's about an hour and a half away from the suburb I live in now. It was soooo different. I grew up in Chicago, so I am not used to wide open spaces! I had a lot of fun meeting everyone. Everyone in his family is super nice and funny!
I got so many wonderful gifts this Christmas. My parents bought me the giant food processor I've been wanting for two years! I bought myself a new Blythe doll (Ice Rune!) and my boyfriend's family seriously spoiled me. It was so unexpected, but I appreciate everything so much!
My boyfriend is the cutest. He didn't really know what to get me for Christmas, so I suggested he check out my etsy favorites and pick something from there. He did such a good job. I love everything (well, obviously, if I hearted it, I better like it!).
He bought me three things from etsy and then a record, that he obviously didn't get there. We're trying to grow our record collection. I bought him Modest Mouse's "The Moon and Antarctica" (hard to find!), for his birthday and the soundtrack to "Where the Wild Things Are" for Christmas. We saw that movie in the theater. Neither of us were that impressed, but we both liked the soundtrack. And I think he has a thing for Karen O. :D I have a feeling vinyl might be 'our thing' for gifting from now on. I love records! Oh and he also bought me a giant bag of Swedish Fish. Those are not pictured because I already started eating them and they may or may not already be gone.
*you are my favorite*
