Weird Wednesday

Today feels so weird, although since this is my sixth week in a row not working a full week, I suppose I should be used to it? Waking up at 5:30 just never really gets easy...

Christmas recap: After some last minute present wrapping, on Christmas Eve, Nick, my parents and I went to see lights at Watkins Regional Park in Prince George's County. It is a nice, chill light festival that you drive through. There's a ton of lights, and it is entertaining even though we're all adults. Then my family went to a rather disappointing IHOP dinner. Long story short, they screwed up the hash browns so many times, I ate three servings. I don't know how that's IHOP's fault, but it is!

Christmas day was wonderful. I spent the morning being lazy with Nick and opening our presents. I got the Brooks jacket I mentioned a while back on my blog, as well as a North Face jacket, some scented lotions, a gift card, and EGGIES. I am a hard boiled egg fiend, and I currently use something like this:

It is very easy and mindless (just stick them in, and it'll shut off on its own when the eggs are cooked), but ask my parents and they will tell you, I am not a happy camper peeling an egg in the morning and tearing the thing to pieces because the shell sticks. Enter: Eggies. I'll let you know if they are in fact as life changing as the commercials claim. I'm optimistic!

We then headed to my parents house where I got so so many gifts, including the Mia by Clarisonic. Yet another product that gets rave reviews that I had dreamed of getting, and now I have it! I have not used it but I am very excited for the potential after reading the reviews. I also got a super gorgeous bracelet that I wore all weekend. Love it.

After presents, we lazed about (notice a theme?), played with toys, and had dinner. My dad made awesome roasted brussel sprouts that even Nick admitted he didn't hate. Yum. We then went and saw Mission Impossible 3, which was alright even though spy/international intrigue/arms dealer movies tend to get me all turned around. Lame.

My final Christmas was yesterday, in New Jersey with Nick's family. I got to play with his nieces (there are 3 who are blood relatives and one who sister's boyfriend's child... 4 little girls under the age of 5) and got a food processor that I'm pretty excited about.

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend with Nick, my family, and his family... now to make it through 3 workdays and have another 3 day weekend. Life is hard :)
