Las Vegas, Nevada. What are your thoughts? I know some people just aren't into it, while others go yearly. Personally, I love Vegas and won't ever pass up an opportunity to visit! Three days is just right when it comes to how much time to spend there.
Just a few weeks ago we spent a long weekend in Vegas, celebrating Bryce's brother Brandon and his new bride Renee. We spent a few hours at a wedding chapel and never stepped foot in a nightclub. I still don't really "get" gambling and will probably stop trying now! Our time was spent eating, drinking, walking around, and enjoying each others' company in the desert and under the neon lights.
Don't take a gamble in Vegas, set your sights on my fav 5 places to eat and/or drink:
Happy 2017! How was your New Years Eve celebration? Ours was low-key, with visits to two friends' houses throughout the day, then we fell asleep at home before midnight. It was relaxing and we woke up today feeling great. We have been relaxing around the house all morning.
Since my freshman year at Penn State I have been collecting Christmas tree ornaments. My Mom gifts them to me almost every year, and a few friends and family have contributed over the years.
When my parents stepped foot into my house for the very first time two years ago, they dropped a small suitcase off, instructing me to keep the bag and its contents. Clearly they were ready to unload some of the stuff they'd been holding onto for 6 years (and many apartments) of my life. I was excited to find that the bag was full of my PSU ornaments. Last year I snagged a white tree at an after Christmas sale. This year my life goal of having a Penn State Christmas tree came true!
It's December 27. How was your Christmas? How is hanukkah going so far?
There have been years where I've dreaded the holidays and been grateful for them to be over. This year, thanks to my family coming to my home in Seattle and the Advent project, I was excited, mostly prepared, and truly enjoyed Christmas. We visited restaurants, prepared and enjoyed home cooked meals, reheated leftovers, snuck snacks, and so on...
Today we took my parents to the airport and I was ready for a cool, refreshing, and healthy smoothie. I knew I had a great idea, then I took it to the next level by adding a double shot of espresso!
Merry Christmas! It's such a day for celebration. Yesterday we had a great day in Seattle with my family.
We started with homemade breakfast: fried egg and cheese sandwiches with hummus, roasted garlic sweet potatoes, and sautéed zucchini, spinach, and tomatoes.
