Meerrrrry Christmas (or Happy Holidays!)


I’m at my in-laws, and we are definitely *celebrating* the season.  This means loads of cookies and wine.  I am starting to feel off on sweets. 


On the drive over, I ate a Gingerbread cookie.


When we got to our destination, I had a plate of cheese and crackers.  I also proclaimed loudly that I needed a cocktail, so my future sister-in-law poured me some wine.

We drank, sat in the hot tub, and drank some more.  My sister-in-law’s new boyfriend (who is awesome) made me a Coconut Rum Cocktail with fresh fruit and cranberry juice.


Everyone decided they didn’t want to cook or wash dishes, so we ordered Thai Food.  I had a little bit of everything:


Including VERY spicy shrimp!


It was literally SO spicy that I had to go get a glass of milk to wash it down.  Everyone was complaining about how insanely spicy the food was!  It was kind of odd in its spicy-ness! Like a chef had accidently dumped a bunch of chili powder into our dishes.


I finished off dinner with another glass of wine (probably number three by this point) and a Chocolate Oreo.


I want to wish each of you a lovely Christmas night, and if you don’t celebrate the holiday, I hope you have a special Holiday season!


Peace on Earth and good will to all!
