It sounds like most of you had very nice holidays. My Christmas was quiet, but fun. I think I'll bore you all with a recap of the past few days, if you don't mind. :)
Christmas Eve day I went grocery shopping with my mom and sister for everything we needed for Christmas dinner. I actually love going to food stores and looking at all the stuff. I know I said previously that I don't like getting food we don't "need", but looking is always fun!
Later, my sister and her skating partner had a performance at a local, temporary ice rink. They did a great job! That was around 5 pm, so we had to have dinner out afterward. We went to a Mexican place that wasn't really fast-food, but it wasn't a nice, sit-down restaurant either. Those places are actually the easiest for me to eat at, not sure why. I played it safe and copied my sister's order, but I ate the food and enjoyed it.
Christmas morning we got up and my mom made french toast. Scary!! But I had a piece and some milk, too. Then we opened our presents (it was just my mom, dad, sister, and me - we keep things small around here). I love all my presents! We try to keep things on a budget, so we don't usually get/give anything big or expensive, but really that's not the point of Christmas, I don't think.
Here's my scarf:
You can't see, but it has peace signs, scary skulls, and hearts on it. Three of my favs!
My new robe thing. It's super warm! (Excuse the messy closet)
On Sunday, we, again, didn't really do anything. We did brave the Asian markets to get stuff (edible and non-edible)in preparation for New Years. (My mom does always a semi-traditional Japanese New Years.) I did give in to temptation and work out in my room. But only for a very short time. Then we had our "real" Christmas dinner. (Am I the only one who LOVES Brussel sprouts? lol)
Overall, it was a great weekend filled with relaxing and hilarious times. The only stressful thing was that I didn't exercise very much, so right now I kinda have that "f" feeling, if you know what I mean. I can get through it, but it's really so annoying and not fun. Eating was good, though. I ate alot and mostly I enjoyed everything with a minimum of guilt.
Sooo, that was my holiday weekend. If you're still reading this you deserve a gold star. :) I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
