Christmas Comeback

First of all...Merry Christmas!! I know, I know, I am a little late.  I decided to get back into some blogging.  I will make a post later to catch everyone up on what has been going on lately, but for now I just want to share some Christmas funness!

Jim and I decided to host our first big party this year! The Hoeltje Holiday Hoopla!! I like to think it was a success.  My favorite part was the hot chocolate bar.  Complete with two kinds of cocoa, three flavored vodkas, LOTS of topping, and of course plenty of cookies for dunking!


 Salted Caramel and Double Chocolate Cocoa

 Sooo many cookies and sweets

Marshmallows (three kinds), mini chocolate chips, caramels, peppermint sticks, sprinkles, whipped cream...

Jim and I tried to keep to a budget this year, but like always Jim bought me lots of nice things :)

If you know me, you know I LOVE brightly colored clothing! And comfy clothing.  Jim really nailed it with this super bright (the picture doesn't even come close to showing the true brightness!) and super comfy hoodie.  

Sadie helped me open some yummy sea salt and almond dark chocolate! She did NOT help me eat it.
My parents got us a Keurig! I have always wanted one.  Also, plenty of fun flavors to keep us caffeinated for quite a while.

My sister, Lori, who lives in Texas came home for the Holidays! Sadly her new husband had to stay in Texas :(  But we did have a nice time.  We took a family trip to Falling Water.  A very cool house built into a waterfall! It was very rainy and cold but I highly suggest taking a trip to see this architectureal masterpiece!

I was trying to look happy but I was soooo cold!!

Jim and I had a wonderful Christmas and are excited for 2014!!

This towel is so me!!

I hope everyone had a super wonderful Christmas!
