This is my official Christmas post! Sorry it is so delayed. I had a 13 hour work day Saturday (both jobs that day.. yuck) and yesterday was spend relaxing with my boo and eating at California Pizza Kitchen! Mmm their greek pizza is to DIE for. Well, these are a few pictures Patrick and I snapped a few shots after we opened our gifts!
His face just cracks me up in this one!
My new beautiful necklace from my love! Does it look familiar? It's by the same Etsy seller as the necklace from this post.
What a wonderful Christmas it was! I just loved that Patrick didn't have to work (at his old job, he had to work every single holiday). The day was filled with so much amazing food and it just made me realize how thankful I am to have such a great family.
Dress: Thrifted, Old Navy
Necklace: Gift from Patrick
Belt: Taken from thrifted dress
Boots: Sam Edelman, gift from stepmom!
I just have to include our gifts to each other, too. We made a rule that our gifts had to be homemade, but we could include a small gift as well.
I made him a painting! I haven't done one since like 3rd grade and Patrick is always telling me I should try out my art skills. I was surprised at myself, actually! Don't even ask about the random heart at the bottom.. I just don't know what purpose it serves.. but it made for good laughs! I also told him I owe him 5 iTunes albums of his choice.. we have the same exact music taste but the past couple times he's been buying all the music so it's time to make it even!
Patrick MADE me a jewelry box! Yes.. made.. from scratch! It has drawers and everything. He started out with just a big block of wood.. he is so crafty! Inside was the sweetest note I've ever read and I honestly didn't even read it all at first because I had so many tears! The note was in the first drawer, and in the second drawer was the necklace mentioned earlier. He is the best boyfriend I could ever ask for!
How was your Christmas?! Any special gifts? I can't wait to catch up on my blog reading and see everyone's Christmas posts!
