I don’t remember the whole schedule, but starting from when we got there, we had on the agenda:
- Christmas Vacation
- Love Actually
I was so busy with the CPR/AED/First Aid certification, grocery shopping, and cookie baking, I forgot to eat lunch. Doh! So I had a bunch of snacks at the party for a late “lunch”.
Chex Mix, Pita Chips, Mini Quiches
Ooey-Gooey-Butter Cookies (or something like that…what were they called Kate!? lol)
My Quick Chocolate Chip Cookies (thanks Great Harvest!)
Peanut Butter Chocolate cups.
Drinky-drink – red wine
Oh how much did I LOVE the cozy fire?!
I got cozy on the couch with my plate full of food: pita chips + hummus, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, mini quiche, pig in a blanket.
I think these desserts deserve some close-ups!
I enjoyed my eats with Elf! Hubby and I saw Elf for our first date, so the movie holds a special place in our hearts.
After Elf, we turned on Christmas Vacation.
While the pizzas cooked away, I let my friends test out my macro lens…
I think they took some great photos! Perhaps they will get lucky and Santa will bring them a macro lens for Christmas! 😉
Time to eat!
I had plenty of salad and 2 small pieces of pizza – one of each flavor (Margharita and cheese).
I also had another one of those butter cookies. They were so good – like little pillows of deliciousness!
I also enjoyed a little Hot Apple Cider with dinner. Yum! Such a great festive drink!
Gilbert made a guest appearance!
I totally want some of these cinnamon-scented pine cones for my house! They smell awesome and are pretty, too! Kate said she found them at Target if anyone is interested.
A little Prosecco to end the night.
Check out Kath’s recap here.
Thank you soooo much Kate and Nate for having us over! We had a great time and are hoping to see another movie marathon next year, if not sooner!
