Christmas with TILTE 2011.

Despite knowing that every other blogger is posting millions of holiday pictures and really, nobody cares about holiday pictures unless they're featured in them, I'm still going to post a shitload of my own Christmas pix.

I can't promise they're going to be entertaining. But since this is my blog and I call the shots around here, I'm just going to do it anyway.

Christmas 2011, Featuring TILTE and Family.

My favorite wrapping paper this year: Purchased at the $.99 Store

Special Moments Caught on Film...

Worth noting:

-I've turned into a hermit and can't bear the thought of going into work tomorrow. Even though I love my job, I'm hurling at the thought of having to wake up early and sit in traffic.

-My breakfasts for the past four days have consisted of cookies and Earl Grey.

-In related news, I've outgrown every item of clothing I own. Even my scarves.

-My actual Christmas night dinner consisted of a tuna sandwich and Lay's potato chips. Since our official celebration meals took place on Friday and Saturday, neither Boyfriend nor I had any desire to cook/ clean/ go out for food. It was fucking delicious.

Was my Christmas everything you imagined it would be???


The Tsaritsa a.k.a. Alexandra Naughton said...

Yes, it was everything I imagined and more! Cute shot of you drinking a white Russian in your apron :) Looks like you had a lot of fun. Ben and I had a very low key Christmas, which consisted of sleeping in and chillin. It was great.

Erin said...

Looks fabulous, darling. You look gorgeous, as per usual! I have eaten cake for breakfast every day for the last week and a half. Unsurprisingly, I am also knocking things off tabletops with my bulging belly fat. Need to go into hibernation now. Toodles!

Miss Yvonne said...

I'm fucking jealous of your .99 cent kick ass wrapping paper.

Crying is the New Croquet said...

1.) I'm going to kill you in your sleep and steal your plates.

2.) You look like Lisa Ling in your apron

3.) I'm fat because you put manteca in my cookies.

4.) I love the picture of Pearl in mid-air. I have a similar picture of Maverick catching a dragonfly.

Sara said...

Seriously, every one of your posts crack me up. I love the expressions, the drinks, the food, the dogs, the kids, the profanity, the love. Can we please meet up and be best friends? And I love that you had tuna sandwiches on Christmas. I had tacos...of course, damn baby.

Deborah said...

You and your BF are so adorable!

What did you get him? Did I miss it?

Deborah said...

Oh! What is manteca?

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

ALEXANDRA - I love the idea of sleeping in and chilling on Christmas. Maybe one year we'll blow off the family commitments and do our own thing too.

ERIN - Isn't it great/ disgusting living off cookies and cake?? I'm about to go for round #2 of my cookie intake for the day. -And then my signature move: go straight to bed.

MISS YVONNE - I lucked out with the paper. I stopped at the $.99 cent store for a few stocking stuffers and ended up walking out with a cart full of cheap- but fantastic- shit.

CRYING - I put manteca AND bathroom baking soda in your cookies.

SARA - Thanks! I probably take like 300 photos of random things when it comes to special events in the hopes that I'll snap a few goodies. Oh! And our special Friday night "Christmas" meal?? Tacos!

DEBS - I got Boyfriend two special surprise items: the customized guitar picks (he's in a band) and a book I made online that consisted of family photos. :)

Sara Louise said...

Customised guitar picks are a pretty bad ass gift. Go you. x

Simone Says... said...

love these photos! and i've been wearing yoga pants for 6 days straight. :)

Wombat Central said...

Love the mama fashion show. Happy New Year!

Megs said...

I'm apparently a total voyeur who loves looking at other people's pictures. Whatever.

Love your pics.

MRanthrope said...

No joke...I'm extremely jealous of that Black Happy Holidays wrapping paper!

Every year I purchase a slight variation of the same old snowman crap wrapping paper and it secretly kills me inside. Next year, I'm going black! Paper. Talking about paper. yes.

Cute pics. Hope the rest of your holiday season went well.
