Weekend Update

I hope you all had a great weekend!
This weekend was full of food, family, and relaxation....perfect.

When I came home from work on Friday, I was so exhausted. As I've mentioned recently, I'm really adjusting to this new schedule. It's been pretty hard. So, naturally, we headed out for margaritas. And queso. Hello, extra 5 pounds this weekend. It was so worth it.

I continued the holiday decorating by putting lights up on the balcony...

And celebrated the first nights of Hannukah! Yep, we do both holidays! I had "Chrismukkah" growing up :)

We threw a birthday brunch for my Mom...
It was so nice to spend time with my family and even more fun that it was at our place! We usually don't do this because our apartment's small... we don't even have a kitchen table... but it worked out nicely and was a great time!
I made a Pumpkin French Toast bake. Yum.

And then we watched our Redskins win a great game!
Best "outfit of the day" ever...

The weekends are way too short. I've also done no Christmas shopping.. usually I'm on top of it but not this year... no way. We did go to Target on Saturday and could hardly move throughout the store. No thanks, I'll be doing my shopping online.
Now it's time for another week of work. Only a couple weeks until Christmas and my birthday (which is Christmas Eve ;) )
