Oh, The Holidays

This holiday season has been a complete whirlwind. Since I never blog in a timely fashion (I am the absolute worst!), here a few pictures from the most wonderful time of the year.

Per family tradition, Christmas Eve was spent at my church for a beautiful candle lighting service.

I finally got all my shopping done the week of Christmas and had some time left over to make this stocking for my boyfriend. This was our first Christmas together in the same country (nuts!), so I made him a stocking like the ones my mom made for all my sisters when we were younger. My mom made the actual stocking part (I can't use a sewing machine...don't judge) and I made all the pieces by hand. P.S. Gift wrapping is my favorite.

The 29th was my boyfriend's birthday, for which I made a tiramisu cake. I know, I know - I am absolutely obsessed with Smitten Kitchen and once again Deb did not let me down because it was delicious.

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from New Years, but rest assured it was a good time. I did, however, take this picture today of my Chinese fortune, and that must count for something.



Hooray for the New Year! I'm pretty excited for 2011 - it's going to be a good year for sure.
