Christmas Weekend Recap

We spent Christmas weekend at my best friend's home in CT. Her hubby, S, and K have become very good friends so the four of us try to get together as often as possible - yay! On Saturday, M and I cooked up a storm because they hosted Christmas Eve dinner at their place and had S's family over. At midnight, once the kitchen had been cleaned and we all had an eggnog white russian (S's concuction!) in hand, we opened presents by the fire. This was my first all American Christmas - a fire, cold temperatures, a drive to Boston to visit extended family on Christmas day - and it was so special to spend it with my bestie in her home. 

Also, Santa treated me extremely well (I must have been a very good girl this year!) K surprised me with the Hermes H bangle I had been wishing for and a couple of stocking stuffers (a Mason Pearson hairbrush and a Stephanie Johnson ML traveler bag). My bestie gave me an unbelievable handmade sketch of my wedding dress drawn by the uber talented Megan Levans
How did Santa treat you this year?
