Over at The Pretty Committee they are still hosting the 12 Days of Scrap-Mas. On my tutorial post, they were kind enough to give out a RAK if you comment by tomorrow morning (Sunday). Hurry, there still is time to post! If you want to see the tutorial for the Scrapper’s Ornament Gift, find it here. Here’s a picture of my simple and quick gift to give to a fellow scrapper:
Yesterday, I indulged in the ballet; I could not resist The Nutcracker. I usually go during the holiday season, but last year I was not able to go. This year, I splurged. It was absolutely mesmorizing; the way the dancers moved was so gentle and elegant. The men were amazing on stage; they jumped so gracefully with such power! The costumes and makeup sparkled under the lighting. It was unbelievable! Also, the San Francisco symphony that plays was fantastic! If you ever get the chance to enjoy San Francisco during the holiday season, I highly recommend checking out the ballet. My ticket was definitely money well spent. I’ll definitely have to be in New York one year to check out their ballet company’s performance of The Nutcracker.
Pictures were prohibited during the ballet for safety measures, so some others to look at:
This morning, we all headed to The Country Way in Fremont for brunch. I have to admit, they have the best french toast I’ve ever tasted in my life. It’s absolutely amazing. It’s crispy, but not oily or buttery, and it has powdered sugar on top for sugary goodness. It’s so good, that you don’t even have to drench it in syrup; it tastes good plain. Yummy! Gloria and I go here at least once a month just to eat the french toast, and I’m still not sick of it.
Having the people I love around me was definitely a great break for me. I’ve been so busy with work and the rush of the holiday season that I’ve forgotten to sit down to enjoy the warmth of the people you love during this time of year. With their unending support for my scrapping hobby, they’ve pushed me to scrap our memories, and I’m definitely grateful to them. When I’m older, I’ll probably have a library of scrapbooks filled with memories such as this weekend, and I’ll thank them for letting me scrap them!
Last but not least, Maui wanted me to post these pictures of her! She was trying take the camera away from us, so we ended up taking these random ones of her, which she wanted to share even though they’re unclear and rather blurry. She’s such a weirdo!
I can’t wait for this upcoming week. Christmas is less than a week away! Are you excited?!
Off to cook dinner for everyone,
