MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 10–16, 2018!

So many holiday parties! A Disney day with Kiki, a party for Zach’s birthday, and forcing my friends to take stuff away from me.

Enjoy!

Monday night we had our annual Getty-wide holiday party that was kicked off by the most beautiful pink and purple sunset.

We raced upstairs from our underground office when we got word the sky was doing some magical things.

Amazingly from the top floor we could see down four floors. Hi Isabel!

I was already in the food line when Zach was parking so I loaded up on food for the two of us. I got a lot of compliments on my food stacking skills.

All my extra kitchen stuff ready to sit out for my “mandatory yard sale” ahah. I told friends coming over they all had to come look at my free items and take something. These are all extra items that were handed down to us when we moved into the bigger space. But we didn’t really need so much! So I wanted to pass stuff along to friends before donating the rest.

    Gingerbread, but not too sweet.

  1. I am so behind on your posts, but I finally caught up! I’m behind in my own blog, too. Sigh.

    I’m in love with your new place! Did y’all get a house, or a new apartment? It looks so much more spacious, does it feel that way, too? How do the pups love it?

    Questions!
    1. Aside from the annual films, I’ve been marathoning Holiday Baking Championship, and the new holiday season of Nailed It! with Nicole Byer. It’s my new everything.
    2. Gingerbread is my go to holiday flavor so anything with that.
    3. Honestly, a new FT job so I can move back out on my own. I had a phone interview, and then an in person interview Wednesday of last week. They said I’d know by the end of the week (so like, tomorrow). Hashtag positive vibes and thoughts and prayers and all that good mojo you subscribe to that I get it. Sigh.

    Hope all is well with you!

    1. It’s a house which is crazy we get to live here. It’s wild to have room(s) multiple ones! We feel lucky to be able to live here!!! Pups love it! Except they keep peeing on the rugs…

      Good luck and sending you good vibes for the potential new job!!!

      Like

  2. I love spam, got to make me some of those musabu.

    – What are you watching? Holidays are coming and I’ll have some relaxing time, so what should I watch?
    In terms of actual Christmas films, the straight to DVD Beauty & The Beast sequel “Belle’s Enchanted Christmas” is always a winner in our house. Has been since I was kid.

    – Favorite seasonal treat this time of year?
    All the good sides you get with Christmas dinner like pigs in blankets, bread sauce, parsnips etc

    – What is one thing you want to do before the New Year?
    Finish remodeling my bathroom!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. I had a hawaiian student from whom I would buy spam musubi all the time. I love it so much haha. I love your flat, it’s so unique and so yours!

    What are you watching? Holidays are coming and I’ll have some relaxing time, so what should I watch?
    – I watch the Christmas specials of murder mystery shows; they’re usually pretty fun.

    Favorite seasonal treat this time of year?
    – My mum is German, so all the German treats, like lebkuchen, domino steine, spekuloos. It reminds me of home and is so comforting.

    What is one thing you want to do before the New Year?
    – I’m not sure! I’m going to actually have a birthday party which I haven’t had in years, so there is that.
