If the past two days are any indication of the holiday ahead, I am one lucky girl 🙂 Mike and I arrived at his parents’ house outside Charlottesville late on Friday evening for an amazingly full but also relaxing weekend. Instead of writing a full recap (which would take way too long and I’ve got cookies in the oven and a fire going right now), here are some scenes from the weekend.
Saturday 8 mile run. It was windy as hell but I loved it 🙂
Been using my new Aeropress coffee maker EVERY day. The coffee it makes is AH-mazing.
And of course, topping it off with egg nog.
Mike’s mom spoils us with delicious veggie scrambles from their beautiful garden… and pickles!
Decorating the Tosto family Christmas tree!
Curled up on the couch reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes with Little Mac at my feet
Attending the Rapunzel’s Christmas Party
Where we watched Mike’s mom perform as a member of the Charlottesville Albemarle Flute Ensemble!
Finishing up last minute Christmas shopping on the mall. And I bought this SWEET hat that is shaped like a koala bear. I am obsessed with it.
Swung by the DoubleTree Hotel to check out the gingerbread house village. Amy, this made me think of you!
And now I’m enjoying a hot cup of kukicha tea and getting ready for a night in with a fire, cookies, some presents, and maybe even a movie 🙂
Mike and I bought each other these mugs this weekend from a store in Charlottesville called “The Cat House” which boasts gifts for
crazy cat ladies cat lovers… went in as somewhat of a joke. Stayed for 30 minutes, bought two mugs and a Christmas card to send to another cat loving couple.
I meannnnnn come on how awesome are these mugs??? I know I know… we’re crazy cat people. DAMN PROUD OF IT TOO!
Surf-n-Santa 10 Miler Recap is coming later today so stay tuned… it’s gonna be awesome 🙂
