We stayed home for both Christmas and New Years this year and it was really quite pleasant. We missed our families, but we didn't miss crazy travelers and trying to figure out what to do with the dogs.
For Christmas Eve we joined Jay and Staci, and Jay's sisters family for a delicious dinner at Benihana. That's right, we had teppenyaki for Christmas Eve and it was great. Also, I had a very interesting but awesome experience whilst there. Be warned that this story involves nudity, not my nudity, but some nudity. THE STORY: As our table was being seated I excused myself to visit the ladies' room so I could spit out my gum. I walked in and was greeted by two gals, one facing the mirror with her shirt up over her chest, no bra, boobs out to the world. The friend of the half naked girl looked horrified and tried to cover up everything. The girl baring it all to the world, turned to look at me (boobs still out) and said, "Aren't they great? I just had them done 3 months ago!" I enthusiastically told her they looked great. She then said, "Do you want to touch them?" And you know what, I did, and they were fantastic! END STORY. Needless to say, it was a great Christmas Eve.
After dinner, playing games!
For Christmas we invited over Jay and Staci, and Jay's sister's family, as well as a couple of new arrivals to SF who were Christmas orphans. It was a nice turn out and a fun evening. I cooked a bacon wrapped pot roast and it came out awesome. We played games and drank way into the night. I loved having Christmas at my house! I apparently had such a good Christmas that the only pictures I took that day were of my bacon wrapped port roast.
Bacon wrapped pork loin!!!!
For New Years our friends Maggie and Shad came up from Santa Barbara. They stayed with us for the weekend before the new year and we stuffed our faces, drank too much and gossiped like old women. In other words, it was a great time.
Downtown with Maggie and Shad at Union Square.
On actual New Years Bob and I decided we wanted to stay away from all the crazy people, so we got all dolled up and went to dinner at 5:30pm and were home by 7pm. We barely made it to midnight but it was one of the most relaxing New Years I've ever had.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Love and kisses,
