Christmas at our Apartment
It's the holidays and besides summer this is my absolute favorite time of year. I love all the holiday parties, decorating, baking, and of course gift giving!
Attached is a picture of our "Christmas nook" this year. It's Alex's and my first Christmas together. In years past we always had to mail eachother gifts because of the handful of states that used to be between us during this time. It's just so nice to not have to do that long distance thing anymore...it was a bear to get past that!
My mom gave me some of her gargantuan antique ornament collection for our tree. I love the antique glass ornaments...so classic:-) The oldest ornament I have is pink and is from the 1800s...we were extra careful with that one!
Saci is the best and leaves it all alone, because she's the best behaved dog EVER.
Last night we took her to a coworker's apartment where we had an amazing meal and we introduced her to their Welsch Corgi puppy. For the 1st 20 minutes she was the biggest wuss and ran away from the puppy that was sooo much smaller than her. But after awhile she began to play with it, after realizing that she could use her size and speed to her advantage. They both fell asleep right after we left, having played for 2 and a half hours!
Yesterday I met Rachel Ray.....I have pics. so details and photos will follow!
