A Very Merry Christmas!

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! I personally had a wonderful holiday filled with lots of cheer.  We spent Christmas Eve at my Aunt and Uncle’s house celebrating with a Yankee swap, a Swedish Smorgasbord, and lots of family.  It was really nice to see everyone and catch up.  Yesterday my family opened gifts, had a delicious Christmas brunch complete with egg strata, fruit salad, and Swedish Christmas bread.  For dinner we had family friends over to celebrate with us! My mom made a delicious Prime Rib with all sorts of sides and Shrimp Bisque for an appetizer.  I’ll share my Christmas eats on Wednesday for the What I Ate Wednesday! I also learned how to make my Mom’s famous Chocolate Cream Pie on Christmas Day!

Santa brought me a few gifts that I am so excited about!  I finally got a Le Creuset pot.  I have wanted this for years and am so excited to get home and start cooking! I’ll definitely be making some soup in the next few days!  My mom got me Red which I love!

My New Le Creuset!

My brother got me some new yoga clothes which I absolutely love and can’t wait to wear in the studio!

New Yoga Tank!

He got me leggings with a cute skirt over the top which can be cinched to change the length! I absolutely love it and know I will wear it all the time to yoga, especially when I am running errands or meetings friends after.

New Yoga Pants!

He also bought me an adorable jacket to go with the outfit! It will be so cute come spring and I know I will wear it a ton!

I’ll definitely be looking so cute in 2012! I also got some other great gifts including a beautiful pair of earrings and new things for my apartment! My mom also picked out some great new outfits for me! It was a success! My brother and I gave my parents an iPad for Christmas! They absolutely loved it! It was a great Christmas for everyone!

I’m off to enjoy my last day at home with my family! We are heading to my Aunt and Uncle’s to socialize with my cousins! It’s been a tradition for years and I’m really looking forward to it!

What was your favorite gift?  Did you get gifts that will help you eat healthy and live an active lifestyle?  What was your favorite part of the holiday?
