ma famille

Today in British Columbia it was the first ever "Family Day" a new stat holiday. Neither David or I work "real" jobs thats are effected by holidays or weekends but still we decided to take fulllll advantage of Family day. We slept in (the latest I've slept in a long time) Then we watched some prison break in bed, walked to the coffee shop, then came back home and watched more prison break. I'm a little embarassed to say that it is now 10:26pm and we are still watching it. But it has been a good day.

Christmas baking

Every year my mom, my sister, and I have a full day of christmas baking! It's a christmas tradition, we mark it on our calendars in advance, my mom gives us "baking day presents", and we put on cute vintage aprons. We start in the morning making batches of shortbread, dipping pretzels in chocolate, watching "Eloise at Christmas" and drinking tea... Then many hours later we finish the day icing cookies, cleaning the disaster of a kitchen we just created and drinking margaritas. Then I walk home and David sneaks cookies for the rest of the night!

Thanksgiving in Arizona

We spent this past week in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was amazing, Just some good old R&R. Lots of laying in the sun, swimming, eating, full stomaches, iced coffees, and shopping. I've been going to Arizona since I was little, and I love it, something about the desert.. so warm and beautiful!
