Catching Up

Wow, I haven't posted since Christmas Eve.  But that is because I have been busy with parties, Christmas, family dinners and New Year's Eve.  I love the holidays, and I am really sad they are over.  They went by way too fast.  Be prepared for a long random post.

I just realized I never told you all how my night with Daniel Tosh went.  It was amazing.  I have never laughed so much in my life (ok maybe I have).  His opener was Eddie from his show Tosh.O.  He was really funny and a great opener.  Then came out the man himself, Daniel Tosh.  I have been dying to see his show FOREVER, but never pulled the trigger.  Now I want to go to more of his shows.  He is that funny.  I am going to LA in the near future for work, and I will be requesting tickets to his Tosh.O show well in advance.  Do yourself a favor and go see him.
This is my, I am so pumped to see Tosh face

Fast forward to Christmas Eve and we went to my family friend's house for their annual Christmas Eve party.  It was full of family, friends, good food, holiday drinks, presents and a baby.  I finally got to meet baby Evan.  My flower girls parents (they are our good friends) had a baby boy in November and I have been dying to meet him.  On Christmas Eve, I spent at least an hour holding him.  He was too precious.  I am still waiting on the photos that his grandma took of us.

We had an amazing Christmas Day.  We woke up, built a fire, made coffee, cooked the cinnamon rolls my mom made us (tradition for my family), opened way too many presents (we were spoiled this year) and then headed to Truckee for Christmas dinner at my new (in-laws) aunts house.
This is only half of our gifts

For Christmas dinner, we had a traditional style Thanksgiving dinner, but with a twist.  We had deep fried turkey, stuffing, potatoes, carrot souffle, a salad, rolls and maybe something else.  Plus lots of wine and champagne.  After dinner we played some family games and ate yummy desserts.  It was the perfect ending to our Christmas.

Don't worry, Walter had the best Christmas/Birthday.  Walter turned 2 on Christmas.  We are only guessing his birthday since he was adopted from the Truckee Humane Society.  They estimated his birthday in December towards the end of the month, so we picked Christmas Day.  He was overly spoiled with a new leather collar, two deer antlers, three toys, a bully stick and new treats.

The Saturday after Christmas, Rory and I hosted a late Christmas dinner for our families combined.  This is our third year doing this, and I would say it was a success.  We made drunken king crab legs (with all the fixings/dippings), homemade rolls, roasted butternut squash and salad.  My sister was kind enough to make mini eclairs.  Perfect ending to an amazing meal.

We were very boring on New Year's Eve.  We had every intention on going out, as we have the last 4 years being together, but this year we stayed in.  We did manage to make it out to sushi, only to go home in a sushi coma and relax.  I stayed up for the ball drop and fireworks, but the husband was out cold by 10:30.  
I am excited for what 2014 has to bring us as 2013 was pretty good to us.  We got engaged and married in 2013, so hopefully 2014 will bless us with a new baby.

How were your holidays?  What are your New Year's resolutions?


  1. omg the little tie on him!! How adorable!! I love puppies in clothes :)

    1. Thanks. He doesn't seem to mind the sweaters or tie. But put on a costume and he hates it.

  2. I can't wait for that 2014 baby!!! Haha. I'll have the cupcakes ready!!

    1. Me too. It is harder than it looks to get pregnant. Parents used to say, "Have sex once and, Bam, you get pregnant", but that is so not the case. Hahaha. I am dying for your cupcakes. We need something else to celebrate in the meantime, so I can have some :)
