What I got for Christmas 

Hey love!

Merry Christmas!

I’m truly hoping that you had a wonderful time with those who matter. I can’t believe it flew by so quickly. Like what? I only have a week left with my precious tree? I don’t think anyone is as creepy as me. I stare and smile at it every single day. It just means so much to me!

Anywho, guess what I got for Christmas!?!!

A new car! And a trip to Turks and Caicos!!!!!!!!

I seriously can’t believe it!!!!

Best—Christmas—EVER!!!!!!

…lol I’m kidding!

I actually am about to tell you what I really got!

  • Time to spend with my family.
  • Carne asada, ’nuff said.
  • The chance to see Allen’s little sister, niece and nephew open their gifts.

The cutest thing about Christmas is seeing the little cuties glow up with excitement. Makes my heart melt!

  • A 3-day-weekend.
  • The opportunity to be off the same day as Allen!

Our schedules are literally always the opposite so we finally had the chance to bike at Buffalo Bayou on a gorgeous day (breezy,70 degrees).


Then we went to go see a movie! We tried out iPic for the first time.

Quick tip 1: Dont sit in the first or second row.

Quick tip 2: Order the Lookbetternaked Marg.

  • I indulged by having tamales with my sister and our dog, Miu, at my apartment.

It was so intimate and genuinely fun! Oh we also indulged in wine ha.

  • My first Christmas having my own place.

And like I told you, my tree is my life and just snuggling while drinking Abuelita hot chocolate is the best.

  • A super fun Friendsmas at my friend Lucy’s!

We all brought a different dish and it was alllll so delicious, even though most of us are self-proclaimed terrible cooks. Then we went around the table sharing what we are most happy about. Whether it was landing a better paying job, graduating with a long awaited degree or a new addition to the family, it was so nice to hear it all.

  • Spoil my mama.

She was so happy about getting decked out with new electronics. Why do old(er) people bother saying they don’t get technology when they are the first ones to ask for the newest things?

  • Stuff

I did get some material things that I really love and am grateful for. So thank you to those thought about me. 🙂


All in all, I have to say this was my favorite Christmas to date! As I’ve grown older, it’s become less and less about the material things and more about those times that I’ll only get to enjoy once.

I guess I am getting old, because I’m becoming extremely attached and obsessed with time. How it’s passing, and how I’ll never get it back.

I hope we all make our festivities count. And I hope that no matter what gifts you received, that what resonates with you in the future are the things money can’t buy.

Bisous

      OH how cool! I had never been but I can’t stop craving the marg LOL. The cashier told us that the first and second row where just as good as the ones in the back (not in my opinion) so I want to go back to get the recliner seat! Thank you for reading my post, Yachy 😀
