Christmas Vacation

My little seester and her hubby came up from Orlando to spend a few days before Christmas with us in our new home! To maximize our mini vacation, I created a detailed agenda for the weekend…

Friday: After a few festive cocktails at home, we headed to the Epicentre for a big dinner at Vida Cantina. I should also mention this was a weekend full of “photo bombing” each other. The creeper to the left is Lindsey’s hubby.

After dinner we met up with Mel and Travis at Mortimers for way too many shots and vodka redbulls. The agenda stopped there, but we somehow ended the night with table service at Suite…

Saturday: I made a big breakfast before we headed Uptown to go ice skating!

Afterwards we ate lunch at Cabo Fish Taco, followed by a long winter nap on the couch while Elf played on repeat.

Saturday evening we set the table and enjoyed a few Hot Caramel Pear Ciders and some appetizers.

A few days before they arrived, Lindsey and Ryan surprised us with a delivery of Omaha Steaks…

 So for dinner I cooked restaurant style steaks, parmesan-roasted green beans and balsamic roasted red potatoes!

After dinner we exchanged prezzies and sipped on some bubbly.

  Our evening ended with a Christmas movie marathon, the perfect ending to a busy day.

Sunday: I made eggs, potatoes and pancakes for breakfast before Lindsey and Ryan hit the road.

After L&R left, we packed up and headed to Winston-Salem to spend Christmas with Matt’s family!

Christmas Eve: We sipped on spiked eggnog from official “Christmas Vacation” moose mugs.

Charlie continued to wear his festive Christmas bandana

 Christmas Day: We spent time with family, ate a lot and opened all our gifts!

Everyone got matching beach chairs and towels!

Hope you all had a very merry Christmas!
