merry christmas.

25 Dec

Merry Christmas to everyone out there who celebrates it!

I got home to my parents’ house on the evening of the 23rd after an epic trip to Vegas (post to follow) and have spent the last couple of days unwinding and relaxing. We had our traditional Christmas Eve dinner of tamales last night (yum) and cinnamon rolls this morning, after we checked out what Santa had left us in our stockings (I got an awesome Starbucks Las Vegas mug, some great gift cards…helloooo In N Out and the App Store – which apps should I get??) and a bunch of other fun little odds and ends.

We also opened our presents this morning – some highlights include Sonicare, this iPhone Case which I am beyond obsessed with (remember the 2008 Olympic Games’ Bird Nest?) I got some great useful things(   fun dishware, towels, sheets) and some other great stuff including a guide to 250 beers from my aunt and uncle, and a Santa Cruz sweatshirt from my little bro. All in all it was a great morning 🙂

After presents we drove down to Decker Canyon for a hike. After spending Christmas in freezing Madrid last year, it was so nice to spend Christmas in sunny so-cal this year. Here are some pics from our hike…



Hope everyone is enjoying the day!

Now I’m serious, what are a few must-have iPhone apps!?
