My future in-laws came down from New Jersey. We opened presents at my apartment for the first time. I really enjoyed hosting the family so we might have to do this again. I received some very nice presents from my fiancé (Gucci Soho Disco bag) and my parents (Canon EOS Rebel T6).
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s have come and gone since the last time I posted a blog and they all SUCKED. They weren’t the most dreadful days of my life but in comparison to how exciting they were when I was a kid… they sucked.
Halloween: I went to see Ouija with my boyfriend. The movie was terrible, but I enjoyed being with my man. Although, it didn’t feel like much of a holiday.
Thanksgiving: The food was GREAT! That is all.
Christmas: Now I understand why people are all of a sudden “broke” in December. I didn’t even buy that many gifts for other people but between presents and regular expenses, I felt like I wasn’t even making any money. I wasn’t even excited about opening my presents. However, the food was GREAT.
New Year’s Eve: I cleaned out my closet after I got home from work. Watched J. Lo’s HBO special and went to sleep at 11:30.
New Year’s Day: The food was AMAZING! Seriously…
So I clearly enjoy eating, but holidays just feel so lackluster to me now. I see my family on a regular basis so that’s no big deal. I’m employed so I can buy my own gifts. I actually get pretty bored after two days away from work, so I find myself saying “I’m ready to go back to work” even on regular weekends. Valentine’s Day is up next. I’m actually a little bit excited about this one because my boyfriend will be here (long-distance relationship). We’ll see what happens…
