So, it’s Christmas Eve and I’m sick. This scenario is also known as My Worst Nightmare. I knew it was coming, since T-Man started feeling under the weather Thursday night, and was pretty much bedridden Friday and Saturday…
So with a weekend full of parties and baking and gift shopping ahead of me, I made the unwise decision of hanging at his place the entire time. Wish I didn’t like being around him so much 😛
Here are photos of some of this weekend’s festivities!
Hot Toddys on Friday night in an attempt to ward off our colds (apparently you’re only supposed to have 1 and not 3, whoops!)
On Saturday after finishing my (and some of sickly T-Man’s) Christmas shopping, we went to my boss’s Christmas party. It was there that T-Man tried to convince this kid that a giant nutcracker would talk…he didn’t have much luck. Stopped by to have a drink with friends, and then I stayed up till 1 baking more cookies…this proved to be my fatal error, as I woke up the next morning feeling like crap
Nonetheless, we still braved the awful weather and made it to Napa, where I exchanged gifts with T-Man’s mom (see the toy I got her dog? :-D) and we went to his dad’s annual Christmas party.
Check out that massive tree!
We made it back home in one piece and I finished wrapping gifts before we went into our NyQuil slumber 😛
This morning, I hosted the annual Secret Santa that I do every year with 9 other friends. I made coffee cake & cocoa, put out herbal tea and a cookie plate, and the Christmas music was playin’!
Check out this awesome panorama I took of all my friends at my apartment!
It was a fun time as always, and now I have to clean up and head over to my parent’s house, where I’m slated to help my mom bake and cook Christmas Eve dinner (traditionally, we have something Italian with carrot-ginger soup!).
Merry Christmas everyone!
