kerplunk

It’s not a family gathering without a cousin game of Kerplunk.

sevenwonders

Was introduced to the game Seven Wonders on Christmas. Does this not look eerily like the symbol of the Capitol in the Hunger Games?

I am obviously 100% okay with that.

Two failed attempts at Christmas dessert resulted in a candy cane cake.

foamroller

Easily my favorite present from this Christmas. Three-in-one foam roller? Don’t mind if I do.

Ornament from Grandma, and the one place I want to be right now.

A couple months into my internship in Chicago, I found that I no longer enjoyed going home because I hated being away from Chicago. When I moved back to Chicago, I expected to feel the same way, but in the many times I’ve come home between moving six months ago and now, I never once minded it. When I got home on Thursday, though, the first thing that went through my mind was, “I don’t want to be stuck in this podunk town for almost two full weeks.” I’m grateful that I was able to take so much time off work, but I really wish I hadn’t planned to stay home so long. Don’t get me wrong — I love spending time with my family and seeing my friends from home and college that I haven’t seen in far too long. I’d just rather be in Chicago. Next Tuesday cannot possibly get here fast enough.

How was your Christmas?

  1. I’m glad you had a nice Christmas and your family’s tree is gorgeous! I always love going home and seeing family but am quickly reminded that my home is now in Chicago. It’s nice to go home but I’m usually ready to be back in Chicago after a couple of days.

    Have fun over the next week and be safe today (saw your comment on my post)!
