'Twas 5 Days Before Christmas

12.20.2011

Happy December 20th everyone! I'm trying my hardest to savor these final days leading up to Christmas, but for some reason they seem intent on flying by. Thankfully I took off this week and I'm enjoying my adult Christmas break quite a bit. It has me wondering why only kids have them. I've wrapped presents, cleaned and a myriad of other things that more than likely would have failed to get accomplished had I been preoccupied with working and whatnot.

So here I am, on a Tuesday afternoon getting to blog and tell y'all about this past weekend and what we've got planned for the coming days. I have no doubt you are jumping up and down with excitement...

This past weekend Andrew and I headed to my grandparents for their yearly Christmas party. I always enjoy this because a) it's a tradition (and who doesn't love those at Christmas?) and b) there is always lots of food. Seriously good food. And obviously I enjoy seeing my family. Hopefully that was obvious.

no matter how old I get, I will always love this part of Christmas
my sweet mother and myself!
After eating and opening presents and trying not to fall asleep, Andrew and I hit the road and headed east to Chapel Hill for the Carolina/Appalachian State basketball game! Now, I realize that this should have caused more of an internal struggle for me than it did. I mean, my time at Appalachian State helped mold and shape me into the person I am today. My most trying and growing pain years took place in that tiny mountain town and for that, I am forever grateful and thankful.

But this is college basketball. There is not a bone in my body that knows how to cheer against the North Carolina Tar Heels. Don't get me wrong; I didn't want to App to be embarrassed or to even play poorly. I just didn't want them to win. It's okay, I've accepted that I'm an awful person.

We got to the Dean Dome right as the doors were opening so we had time to snap some pictures and I could get some food (because for some reason I was hungry) without hassling with lines.

I wish we could've gotten a better picture, but the lighting was weird

It was a fun game, the Mountaineers played great and the Tar Heels won, so I was a happy girl. After the game, we met up with a few people at a restaurant right off Franklin Street to hang out for a little bit.
the girls!
Since the group was mostly made up of boys, this was the only picture I got, but it was a fun post game meal. Sunday was low key with church and lunch with the Briley's before heading back to their house to watch the Panther's game and enjoy some Sunday afternoon naps before heading home.

This week and Christmas weekend will be spent with both sides of our family, more presents, ice skating (eeek, my first time!) and like I said at the beginning of this rambling post, savoring these remaining days of the Christmas season. Also, on my run yesterday I discovered a house that would make Clark Griswold proud (in the form of inflatables), so I have to show Andrew that before the week is over.

Any fun plans in store for you guys this week or have you spotted any Clark Griswold wannabe's?
