Our Very Merry Christmas!

Once again this year we headed up to DC to spend Christmas with my wonderful family.  It always feels like exactly where I should be.  Our week was full of making so many wonderful memories.  I got to catch up with friends, we went to the gym almost every day, ate a ton of good food, drank wine, visited with neighbors, opened an abundance of gifts and enjoyed the comfort that only being surrounded by family can bring.  I didn't pack my nice camera, so these slightly fuzzy iphone pictures will have to do!  I hope you all had a wonderful, Merry Christmas too!

We were on the way out the door to the airport when we remembered we never took a picture together!! I quickly set up my iphone timer and while the angle and lighting isn't the best I'm so glad we managed to get a couple with us all together.

Zoo Lights

Animals, Christmas lights, my sweet baby, and our friends. Could there be anything better?!
Paxton loved all of the animals!!! He is a child after my own heart.  He loved petting them and feeding them.  The lights display was really over the top awesome and totally exceeded my expectations! So much fun!

NYC weekend getaway

Hey! Look at me all dressed up and not covered in baby food/poop/drool! My amazing girlfriends arranged a weekend trip for me up to NYC!  The solo plane ride alone felt like a vacation. It was my very first weekend (first overnight ever!) away from my baby and while I was nervous to leave him I knew he was in great hands with his daddy.

Rock of Ages show on Broadway was a fantastic good time!
Nothing like a leisurely boozy brunch, talking for hours, eating good food and listening to amazing live music!
It rained the entire weekend, but the rain couldn't put a damper on our fun. We still went out to see Times Square and the tree and the lights at Rockefeller Center. Christmastime in NYC is magical.

The rain and the huge line didn't stop us from getting cupcakes at the Magnolia Bakery!
Our last night was completed with an incredible Italian meal, wine, good conversation, laughter and that incredible feeling when you are surrounded old, trusted friends that know you for you, the good, the bad and the ugly and love you anyway.  So thankful I got this time with my wonderful friends!!

Christmas card photos attempt #3

I think I've given up on taking that "perfect" photo at this point. And these attempts have made me really enjoy breaking out my big camera again.  And I think I've totally gone to the beach more times this winter than I did all summer.  Enjoy these pictures of my sweet, squishy, beach babe!
