The Last Friday of 2013!

OMG - Today is the last Friday of the year! Can you believe it??? I can't! Where did the year go????
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday, for those of you that celebrate.  Everyone that doesn't celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a lovely week! :)

Here are some fabulous highlights from my week!

On Saturday I went over to my friend Erin's house for a girls night.  Her husband was out of town, so we took advantage of the opportunity to watch Christmas Hallmark Movies!  She also gave me a Christmas present ~ Lil Bub's  2014 Calendar!!!!! It had a December 2013 page and it's already up.  This kitty is sooo cute!

{two} This Christmas was pretty awesome!  Now that Jacob is on the east coast, practically the same city as me, we were all together for Christmas for the first time in 3 years!  Jacob so kindly hosted us at his apartment both Christmas Eve and Christmas night.  We had so much fun cooking and playing Quelf and just laughing and having a great time!

 {three} Christmas Morning!  We had Christmas morning at my apartment.  I made our traditional Monkey Bread.  It's my Grandma's recipe.  It was so delicious!  We opened our stocking stuffers and presents.  Dad's "Santa" present was a Camel Geico commercial t-shirt.  He loves that commercial!  If you haven't seen it I have it for you below.  It's pretty funny.  The t-shirt has the entire commercial on the back along with the smiling camel!
I got some great stuff this year.  All I really wanted was a foam roller and I got a really pretty one!  It came with a stretch band and a stress ball. LOVE IT!  I also got a Coca-Cola Soda Shop Madame Alexander Doll (she came with her own little coca-cola), a hair diffuser, spin toothbrush, and some awesome Paul Mitchell hair mousse.  It was a very practical Christmas.

{four} Christmas Night we moved on over to Jacob's apartment for dinner and my dear friend Marcy joined us.  We had ham, sweet potato, roasted cauliflower, mushroom risotto, salad, yummy rolls, and stuffed jalapenos!  Oh, and apple pie...although we never got to the pie.  Jacob's puppy Butters also joined in on the fun with his Christmas jingle hat.  We got a family photo..first one in 3 years!  Oh, and Marcy is a vegetarian which is why she has that face in the picture with the ham..she was a gracious sport!

{five}  Last night the four of us went to Ford's Theatre to see A Christmas Carol.  My college professor, Edward Gero, played Ebenezer Scrooge.  He's been playing this roll for a few years now at Ford's.  It was fantastic.  Just being in Ford's Theatre is pretty fantastic.  So much history there.  To be able to see where Abraham Lincoln sat the night of his untimely death is pretty amazing.  Not to mention the beautiful stage!  Ed was great in the show, as was everyone else!  One of the other actors, Bobby Smith who played Bob Cratchet, did a show at Mill Mountain Theatre in Roanoke back in 2005.  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.  That was the first show I worked on after college as an intern.  It was pretty cool seeing him in the show last night!
