Post Christmas

Hey everyone! I hope you guys had a wonderful holiday!!! It was so nice for us to not worry about work or school, and to spend time with my family. I basically stink at taking pictures even though we got our nice camera for Christmas... but here are a few snippets and updates!!!

+roadtrippin' to boise. can you tell i get bored and do weird things??

+we went to the boise idaho temple. it had been closed for a year and a half for maintenance, so it was great to be back! the inside looks completely different, it was sooooo beautiful!
+went to the mall to do some last minute christmas shopping. supa fun.
+"shepherd's dinner" for christmas eve. my mom enjoys this tradition. she makes us has us dress up in "shepherd"-ish clothes and we eat a yummy dinner consisting of roast beef/flatbread+honey/fruits/fresh mozerella, as if we lived during the time Christ was born.

cuuuute right?!
+if you ever venture to boise, idaho (i'd highly reccomend it. it's awesome) then a hot spot to hit up is MERRITT'S COUNTRY CAFE. it's kind of ghetto, but they have theeee most delicious scones ever. Justin claimed it a tradition we get scones every time we go to boise.

excited for his yumminess.
hot chocolate, my cinnamon sugar scone, and his powdered sugar scone. so delicious

+drove around and looked at Christmas lights!
+slept in on Christmas day (my youngest brother is 14. we don't need to get up at 6am haha)
+opened some presents with the fam.

batman trilogy. one of his favorite series!:)

+we had a delicious christmas dinner at my aunty's house, and played some fun games. it was wonderful!
+we went to Les Mis Christmas night!! it was FANTASTIC!!! i absolutely loved it! you need to see it. it was pure awesomeness.
+it started to snow the night before we left!!! eeee! so traveling home was quite the adventure.

it's back to work early tomorrow, but i feel so blessed that we got the opportunity to spend time with my family. we received some wonderful gifts from family and friends (got a couple straggling wedding gifts! haha). it was great, and i hope you guys had a great christmas as well!! :)

Coming up in the next week:
-another five under 500 post! woot woot.
-an outfit post {hopefully} haha it's hard when i work till 5pm everyday and it's freezing outside...
-a SUPER AMAZING giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you guys should be stoked. heck i wish i could enter.
