Welcome back everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas and have enjoyed some time off! As you may remember from this post, I wasn’t able to head back to Ontario for the Holidays. Luckily, my friends ensured my Christmas was still pretty amazing!
Be sure to check the bottom of this post to see my round up of the stores with the BEST boxing week sales, as well as my picks for the best items this boxing week!
Christmas Eve I had some friends over for a Christmas feast! (You can see all my recipes on my Pinterest). We had a great time eating, drinking and just catching up.
Christmas morning I woke up bright & early to head to meet my best friend at her parents house about an hour away from me. Christmas morning with her family was the greatest. Her two younger brothers are definitely my “unofficial” brothers, and her parents are so welcoming. After the usual present opening chaos we spent the majority of the day playing games & helping out in the kitchen.
I was meant to stay over Christmas night and spend boxing day there as well but – surprise! – my 17 year old nephew texted me at 6pm letting me know that he was stuck in an airport and was going to get sent to Vancouver for a layover. So of course I told him I would come get him when he landed and he could stay with me. He ended up getting in at 1 in the morning, and had to be back at the airport at 7am. We still managed to spend a bit of time catching up, which was great… and definitely made up for being exhausted all of boxing day haha.
After taking my nephew back to the airport I headed back out to my friend’s parents. We decided to spend the day making Jelly! Man oh man, was that ever a ton of work. We made both bell pepper jelly & jalapeno lime jelly. We spent the rest of the day/evening playing more board games and then I headed back home. Ps. if you haven’t heard of the card game Super Fight you have to check it out. It’s pretty darn hilarious.
Whew! What a whirlwind Christmas! I am now back cozy in my home -with the whole day off work, wooohooooo! See you back here on Wednesday! OH, and below are a collection of pictures from my Holidays. I hope you enjoy them!
