Hello and Merry Christmas Eve! (Or is it Happy Christmas Eve?) I’m just coming at you with a later-than-usual “Weekend Things” post, because tis the season to be shorter on time than you thought, right? I fully intended on posting yesterday — I even made sure to upload my pictures first thing in the morning — but then… I don’t know what happened, but posting didn’t. I’ll try to keep it short and sweet as I’m sure you have better things to do on this holiday eve 🙂
We headed into Boulder on Friday night, in an attempt to hit up Happy Hour at the Med before checking out yet another potential wedding band, but there was an hour and a half wait so we wound up at West Flanders Brewing Co. (of our engagement photo fame) and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked their food.
For the record, we thought the band was just okay but the guy putting on a modern dance performance (complete with lots of rolling on the ground!) in the audience was A++.
My cousin is coming in from NOLA this Friday so we are frantically trying to pull the house together (semi-together at least) before her arrival. Which means that’s basically what we did all day Saturday. Things are looking really good! But we did call it quits around 5 for our annual “Couple’s Christmas.” Every year, we put aside a night to have our own two-person celebration and exchange gifts, as it’s usually pretty hectic come Christmas Day.
We made this (highly recommended!), this (also, highly recommended!), these (so cute) and some simple broiled asparagus. Enjoyed in front of Love Actually. By far our best feast ever! We got each other a new range for Christmas and got to enjoy cooking on it together 🙂
I spent a majority of the day Sunday at my parents’… doing laundry. Our dryer just suddenly stopped blowing any kind of heat… so that’s just great. I hauled our clothes over and hung out with my parents while they washed and dried. I felt like a college kid home on Christmas break. I helped my mom plan her Christmas Eve/Day menu and I’m so.dang.excited. to taste it all tomorrow.
Finished off the day with the first yoga studio class in months, which left me totally devoid of any energy, and a dinner of homemade falafel and couscous tabbouleh. I’m just now realizing that the only pictures I took this weekend were of food. And that this post wasn’t exactly short. Hope you didn’t mind!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
