This holiday season so far has been amazing, thankfully. As I said before, I’m not really a fan of the holidays.

Jen, Jessica & I hosted a holiday potluck. I brought bourbon bacon brownies & super spicy meat extreme chili. Lots of people showed up, and eventually we all headed to Ybor. Kiera & I broke off to go see Joe play at Czar. Dupstep! We danced & had shots, then walked back to Kiera’s car & drove home.

My office’s work holiday party was the evening before. Jason came with, and we met the office up at Gameworks. My boss schooled me in Skeeball. After a few hours and before things got crazy, we left to meet up with Pawl at New World Brewery for his Birthday get together. Somehow we ended up stopped by Czar to meetup with Mike, and then headed to The Castle to meet back up with Pawl & his entourage. This was a crazy awesomely perfect night.

Jen, Orson and Jason came over for our own little Christmas. :) Jen made stockings for us all, even Garbage! They had had all the good stocking stuff, like panda chocolate cookies, strawberry Hello Kitty pocky!!, ramune, silly string and strawberry gummies! I got Orson a few little things and Jason got him a Cookie Monster that talks, because he is always saying, “OM NOM NOMMM!!!” on command. I got Jennifer a “love potion” and nametag necklace that reads her twitter name. (@osodemadre) I made dinner for everyone and started a small fire. Jason got me an ipod, which I set up immediately. :) I was super excited because I always borrow his iphone/ipad and needed a camera badly. I love my non-family family! :D

Christmas Eve I worked from 10-1; no one showed up, so I left. I met up with Mike at the mall to grab lunch, then I picked up a new blouse (grey!) for the service at church that evening. I swung by Starbucks and dropped coffee off for Andrew, then headed home to shower & get ready to head to my mom’s. While getting ready, my brother called and said his car had broken down, my mom also said she forgot and needed me to pick up flour at the grocery store. So, all in all, I missed Christmas Eve service, I was pretty bummed as I was looking forward to that.
My mom and grandmother got home from church, we had Christmas Eve dinner, which for my family consists of pizza and hors d’oeuvres. We opened gifts, my mom got me a Keurig coffee maker, I was like a young child, I might have been even jumping. I haven’t shut up about the coffee maker since I visited Jon last New Years. :)
After all the family stuff, I met a few friends up at local dive bar for a few drinks. :)

Christmas Day I woke around noonish, lol, hungout with my family, watched A Christmas Story x 3, and had Christmas dinner. I then headed home because I missed Garbage and can only handle so much “family togetherness”. I got a little antsy later in the evening, I left the apartment to buy a Slim Jim, and then I drove around Seminole Heights looking at lights, listening to Christmas music & eating that. lol?

That’s pretty much it for my holidays.
Jason and I hung out last night, went to Whole Foods and Target because for some reason being cooped up in my apartment for more than 6 hours makes me antsy.
My awesome bff friend Matt comes Thursday for New Years Eve, so I am on cloud 9 and super excited.
