All traces of the holidays have left the building (literally and figuratively). We took down the decorations Monday night and it was back to the grind yesterday. I really can’t complain though, since our time off was well spent with friends, family and a healthy dose of date nights!
Here are some highlights:
Had my first red cup of the season.
Saw Young Adult and loved it. Charlize Theron was perfect for the role.
Discovered a new Pinot Noir that I like.
Went on a beautiful birthday celebration/double date night with Kristen and Sean at Longwood Gardens and Dilworthtown Inn.
Kristen and I at Longwood Gardens. Here is a full recap of the night.
Got 1 mani and painted my nails 2 more times.
Zoya Shay w/Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Big Money as an accent nail
Venique in B-Ceen-B-Gorgeous w/Venique in Twinkling Glitter as an accent nail
Revlon Scene Stealer
Had a fun shopping day in Delaware with my mom and got Red Robin…yum!
Went to WWE Raw with Geof (since he's taken me to see Britney and Lady Gaga). I’d be lying if I said I wasn't a little interested in the storylines. We went to Denny’s afterwards and some of the wrestlers showed up.
Geof and I at the Wells Fargo Center, me with The Miz and Zack Ryder, Geof with Nikki Bella and me with Dolph Ziggler
Watched Elf for the first time ever.
Drove around and looked at pretty Christmas lights.
Saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Besides a few differences from the book, I thought the movie was done really well.
Finally saw Love and Other Drugs (first half – good, second half – depressing).
Went down to the city to have lunch at Reading Terminal Market and then went to Macy’s to see the light show. It’s also where the movie Mannequin was filmed!
Baked lots of Christmas goodies.
Spent Christmas Eve at home with my mom and Geof.
Spent Christmas Day at my cousin Bill & Lara’s house with the entire family. I had such a blast with all of my cousins.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are gearing up for the new year!
