Wow I am totally tired but I can't (don't wanna) sleep! I've had a very long relaxing weekend and it's not over yet. I know come Sunday I'll be missing sleeping in so I'm trying to make my week off last as long as possible. On the down side, I'm totally tired and probably will go to sleep now. Before I do, I just wanted to share what I made for Justyn. It's a little card just to show him how much I love him....
And just so you guys know... this card took a lot of work. I followed the exact directions on how to make it and it was still hard for me! WTF? Ugh... anyway... it was fun to make. Here's how it turned out. Now I need to buy more of this cardstock (the polka dot one). Love it!

Christmas dinner was at Angel's house. Like I said in my previous post, her mom was visiting from France so she made us cous cous. She invited my sister, Oscar and my parents...
Here's Oscar and Reese sniffing each other out heh.

I left with a cut on my pinky from trying to wash the dessert knife. It wouldn't stop bleeding!
Thanks to Angel and Mama for Christmas dinner! It was sooo good!

Last week for work we had a White Elephant Gift Exchange. Here's what I wrapped up. Cute!! It was a Nerf dart gun set that got traded twice before going to its proud owner. The small box was more dart ammos wrapped in a Laura Mercier box since it had awkward packaging. The first guy who unwrapped it thought it was makeup and immediately tried to trade it for something else. I had to repeatedly tell him to open the box so he knew both boxes go hand in hand heh.
A couple days ago my sister and Oscar came over to make some last minute Christmas cards and get our nails done. We ended up tying bows all over Oscar. He didn't like that very much...
Last night Esther and kubiks came over for dinner and cardmaking. I loved KWerner's Chinese takeout box template so I made a couple of those for Angel's daughters. I filled them with some leftover Reese's PB bells.
Now we're caught up to Christmas morning! Justyn and I woke up around 9:30am. He ran out for a quick Starbucks run. I had to have some of that rich delicious salted caramel hot chocolate that they have. When he came back, we unwrapped presents :D Do you like Justyn's duct tape wrapping?
I got a tennis racket, tennis balls, a bamboo steamer (yay!) and a mixed CD which I had been asking for all year. My sister got me a bunch of stuff from Papertrey Ink (ribbon and stamps!!)
Justyn got some tie downs, an In-n-Out t-shirt and gift card, and a travel pillow so he can sleep in the car when I drive to work. Esther got him a handmade sleeve for coffee (from Etsy).
One of our friends sent us some homemade salted caramels & lemoncello. Yum!!
At the moment we're eating some Hickory Farms sausage, cheese and crackers. Justyn just experimented with pepperjack cheese and chocolate. WTF? He didn't like that very much and ended up spitting it out haha.
We're gonna relax for a while before heading over to Angel's house for dinner. Her mom is visiting from France and we'll be dining on cous cous tonight!
