Thankful I only had to work Monday and Tuesday (21st/22nd) before getting the rest of the week off. It was super quiet in the office but I got a lot of work done! Which is always a plus in my book. I got some goodies from work friends one of which had his phone number on it. Not too sure if it’s his work number though … I didn’t try calling.
Tuesday morning, Rizzo didn’t want to wake up. I came back from my morning shower and found him this way … he’s so lazy but he’s so cuteeeeee.
After work I went over and picked up Rose for our dinner date at Thai Cottage where we caught up about so much stuff. Then back to play with her two daughters. The little one is SUCH a cutie. I wish they stayed small. So much cuter when they’re smaller.
The gift Rose’s family gave me. The bag is super cute! And another mug to add to my growing collection for when I move to my own place!!
I ran errands after work on Monday and Tuesday. And when Wednesday came, I was still running errands. Mostly last minute shopping for the extended family and helping out the siblings and parents pick up last minute things. That is the sky Wednesday night. Isn’t it gorgeous? One of my most favouritest pictures.
Wednesday I was suppose to hang out with someone, but per usual, it didn’t happen. Luckily I was able to do Italian with June. I’m not a big fan of Olive Garden but it was close by plus we were craving stuffed mushrooms. I did not even make a dent in the pasta. Then Redbox night with the girls while I wrapped up a bajillion presents to stick under the tree.
B, SIL, and Sammi arrived with Krypto and Pluto Thursday night where I was still wrapping presents and just relaxing with Rizzo. It was a very chilly day before the havoc that was coming. I finally went and got myself a Talenti gelato to try. I love the little container. very sturdy and so far is keeping ice out of my creamy goodness since I take forever to finish a pint.
Sissy and BIL arrived with Bruno and Kato Christmas day. We played video games for hours then Sissy and I went and pulled out our violins. Broken strings everywhere but one … how sad. I want to pick it up again. I bought new strings and just have to put them on. Eeps.
We finished wrapping last minute gifts then headed over to Katie’s for the extended family Christmas. We caught up with the cousins, ate dinner, watched the Rockets game, and had a very, very heated game of Heads Up with boys vs girls. Boys won. I received movie tickets and a marbled box which gave my heart palpitations. As much as I like rock though, I wish it was on there. The box would be even more gorgeous without it but I can do with it. I’min the process of trying to figure out what to put inside.
Saturday was our immediate family Christmas. Morning was breakfast from
Los Roberto’s Taco Shop
3200 S Fry Rd
Katy, Texas 77450
Carne asada fries to share and a California burrito. I was told this place started in California … but I’m not 100% sure. I think whoever told me lied? … I don’t know. I first tried this place back when I lived in San Antonio. It was about an hour drive from where I lived so I only went a handful of times but it’s always an amazing experience. Glad they have one so close now. I would say that when ordering to go, I wished they wrote what the tacos were. We ordered seven tacos and when I went to count, they only gave us six and told us after asking that we would have to open them all up to figure out what they were. And that they didn’t make the seventh one because the cooks didn’t know what the people wrote on the order list … and left it out. Really? And so they said they knew which one, but let’s just say, they were wrong. Boo … They do it for the burritos though.
We played video games and took naps. Then it was dinner time of hot pot … our usual Christmas meal lately. Those four you see in the front are SHRIMPS. Crazy huh? So freaking good. You can’t even see all the other yummy goodness that surrounded us because our table is too small with so many people.
We got all the puppies sitting by the tree for a photoshoot. The better pictures are on the DSLR but this should do.
We all then changed into our Christmas attire. This year we decided to do Christmas sweaters/shirts. You can see Rizzo had a change of clothes. Spoiled, I know. the one with the tree says “Santa Paws” on it and this one is just an everyday winter looking one.
Gifts I got this year. I’m excited for my Meme box. Sissy said she took some things out of it but I am not sure if she’s joking or not. Cannot wait to actually sit down and unbox it. More video games were played and random nothingness but relaxation. Perfect day.
On Sunday, I had brunch at Hasta La Pasta with Mallory and John then to Woofgang Bakery to pick up some doggie goodness.
Left is a present from Mallory and right was a present I found in the mail from Patricia. I just need a Christmas tree now so I can hang it up!
Few more days until the New Year … plans have been set but we’ll see if they actually follow through. I’m a bit lazy.
