My Life Lately 12.27.12

 Hello! Hope everyone had a great Christmas and is enjoying the holiday season. I, for one, ate far too much but also had a fantastic time. I headed down to Charlotte to see Riley and his family was down there, as well, which was great. We went bowling and go karting and went to the Panthers game. We even got to go on the field. My favorite part was probably less about football and more about my Emily Maynard sighting (just kidding but it was actually kind of fun to have a (psuedo) celeb siting)! I did, surprisingly, really enjoy the football. What can I say, it was a really exciting game! (don't tell Riley I actually liked it!)

Christmas night we really feasted. It was just the seven of us and my brother ordered a greatest hits pack of cheese from Murray's, which we had with truffle honey and was divine. My mom bought sushi grade tuna from the Japanese market and made the Barefoot Contessa's tuna tartar recipe that I swear I could live on. For dinner, we had standing rib roast with a morel mushroom cream gravy, delicious brussels sprouts, gruyere potatoes, popovers and creamed spinach. The meal was topped of by Crumbs cupcakes and lots of champagne (and awesome pomegranate martinis). We had a ball and it was really fun to spend time with my family. Now that my brother works all the time and I'm working and my sister is away at school it's hard to get the whole family together.

And Santa was good to me. I'm talking really good. I'm talking helmut lang leather pants good! What were your favorite presents? I also got my tax return (finally) and took it as a sign to get the Rag+Bone Kinsey boots in black (because I needed them.. right??) We even got a dusting for snow... what more could I ask for?

We flew down to Boca Grande, Florida yesterday (probably my favorite place on earth) and the weather is divine. I'm just so happy to be outside in the warmth with my family. Tomorrow is Lulu's 14th birthday, which is frightening in itself.

I hope everyone had a great holiday and survived the Noreaster yesterday. Excuse me while I enjoy the sun...Talk soon!
