Feliz Navidad

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The hubby and I celebrated with my mom and family last night (which is traditional for Latinos). My mom always makes soo much food and so we had to eat lots. It's always special spending Holidays with our loved ones. Today, we rose much too early for me and assisted in the preparations of the Christmas meals provided to the homeless by our church. Although I was cold and tired, it was definitely worth it. The hubby woke me up by reminding me of the good Karma we would receive. In a few, we're off to what I know will be fantastic feast prepared by my fantabulous girl Kristin. We can't wait. Let the stuffing begin!

Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año!

I can't belive it's been a week since Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful weekend. My family came up (and down) to see us in the city and the hubby's brother flew in from Ohio. I got to see my brother's girlfriend's baby bump. Their little boy will be the first grandchild for my parents and I will get to be an aunt! I can't wait. We're so very excited to meet Corbin in March.

I slept in a lot, ate a moderate amount of turkey, consumed a lot of sugar, and enjoyed our beautiful sunny weather. We did a lot of touristy things since the hubby's brother was in town, but they were all things I would have liked to have done on any day off. We visited the SF Zoo, which I hadn't been too since I was a little girl. We walked the beach and picked up sand dollars. We saw the King Tut exhibit. We ate a lot of my favorite foods from childhood (since I grew up around SF) and enjoyed some new restaurants. It was overall a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. The hubby and I truly are blessed and  very appreciative.
