This weekend was full of so many Christmas-y things, and I loved it! Christmas is my favorite time of year because everyone is in a wonderful and giving mood and also, I usually get to reunite with people that I haven’t seen in awhile. I got to do a lot of that this weekend, and it was just nonstop happiness.
The Christmas celebration started on Friday at work with this ugly Christmas sweater, even though it’s not really that ugly. It’s just an oversized sweatshirt that I usually wear to bed and I pinned some ornaments on it that I didn’t put on the tree. Of course I had to pair it with some green jeans and sparkly red shoes. Go big or go home #amiright?
After work, we had the sales team Christmas party. The six of us exchanged gifts for Secret Santa, and my Secret Santa did an amazing job! She got me a gift card to Wing Stop (one of my favorite places to eat for lunch) and to 2nd and Charles (my absolute favorite store because it has all of my favorite things housed under one roof). She also bought me Harry Potter stuff galore! I was so excited when I opened each thing. Harry Potter bracelets, a Harry Potter decal for my toilet (This Way to the Ministry of Magic!), and she even made me chocolate frogs (Jon and I already ate a few, and they’re pretty delicious). I’m so in love with all of my goodies.
After the sales Christmas party, I went to Strange Brew to meet up with a few of my college friends that I haven’t seen for way too long. It was so lovely to reunite and catch up over drinks.
On Saturday, I went to the most adorable (and strangest) Christmas play I’ve ever attended called Jingle Arrgh the Way (no, I didn’t make that title up) with Jon, my college friends, Tyler and Analeigh, and Analeigh’s boyfriend, William. We also ate at Strawn’s, which was so delicious. I could live off of their pie. No kidding.

I ended the weekend with the company Christmas party. Jon was my very handsome date. Our amazing chef prepared a delicious dinner, and there were door prizes, but unfortunately, I wasn’t a lucky winner. I still had fun with my co-workers though.
After the party, we stopped by my parents’ house, and they gave Jon his Christmas present since he’ll be spending Christmas down south with his family this year. He got a ratchet set and a pair of pajama bottoms, and he was super excited about it.
What are your plans for Christmas this year?
