A Christmas MiracleFriday, December 30, 2016
There was even a cute bridge! I honestly had the time of my life that weekend. We celebrated Christmas early, and did all kinds of holiday activities. First, we baked cookies together. His mom made the dough for us from scratch. All we had to do, was roll the dough out and cut out some shapes. Sounds simple right......well somehow we f*cked it up. The dough stuck to our hands, so we added flour to balance that out (seemed logical). However then I think we had too much flour. So long story short, our cookies came out of the oven and the tops were practically covered in "snow". Frosting and adding sprinkles was the fun part! We all got to dye our frosting to what ever color we desired and picked some flavoring for it. My boyfriend's brother picked rum to be his flavor. At first I wasn't sure about it; but actually it was one of the better ones.
Then on Sunday we woke up early to ensure we made puppy chow to much on during the Bears and Packers game. It was so cute watching my bf take charge in the kitchen. He looked sexy mixing that bowl. (I'll insert some images from my Insta-story below). This was my first time making puppychow and boy let me tell you that chocolate and peanut butter is some strong stuff! But it was perfect to snack on in between quarters. Funny story.... I was wearing my white Cutler jersey and my boyfriend told me to change so I wouldn't get it dirty while we baked. So I changed into my packers jersey from Goodwill. Then during half time, I changed back into my Bears jersey to root for Chicago. I honestly would have been happy with either team winning.
After going to his niece's dance recital, we made a gingerbread house late at night. If you couldn't tell we attempted to make it look like a log cabin....hence all the pretzels! And yes there's a shit ton of powdered sugar on the table... *note to self, the sugar doesn't stick to frosting that well! Then the final day spent with my boyfriend was a chill day. We woke up late and had a popcorn movie morning. Home Alone 3 was supposed to be on television, but apparently it got replaced with Harry Potter. Who, watches Harry Potter during Christmas time!? So we ended up finding the movie playing some place else. Then I got all dolled up to take these photos. One of my good friends from college bought me this skirt for Christmas. I love the silk and lace combination. So Natalie, if you're reading this....Thank you! I love it! Sadly, I had to leave for my home that afternoon. I didn't want to leave my boyfriend. I'm used to seeing him everyday. But at the same time I was excited to see my house all decorated for the holiday. Plus I watched Home Alone 1 & 2 on dvd during the car ride. It was the perfect way to end the holiday weekend extravaganza. What winter fesitivies did you take part in?
