Got to spend the weekend in Newport with someone I have missed A LOT!!!
My mom just texted me to let me know she made brownies and that I can have some when I get home…as if I wouldn’t smell them and eat them on my own.
Saturday I leave for Chelan for two nights with Shawn, Seena, and Kacia. Going to celebrate Cinco De Drinko! It’s also going to be 80 all weekend and my body is REJOICING at the thought of possibly getting tan. Bring on the sunshine!!!

Last Saturday Shawn and I went up to Leavenworth! There was a living social adventure for a day trip up to Leavenworth to experience the Christmas tree lighting! Shawn and I woke up very early and had coffee together and exchanged gifts, even though the Leavenworth adventure WAS technically my gift, he still surprised me with a beautiful scarf and earrings! I gave him his present and off we went to Bellevue where we would catch our bus up to Leavenworth! Living Social had assigned us to the “Winter Wheels” bus which was awesome! We watched elf and played trivia on the way up and they provided us with snack packs and vitamin water. Once we got there we were free to roam the town until the tree lighting at 4:30. We walked around and first things first, had some latte’s and truffles from my new favorite coffee shop ever! Normally we hit up Starbucks when we go there but we will never be doing that again after how great our coffee was from this little hidden espresso and chocolate shop! After our dessert we headed to Icicle Brewing Co. for some beer! I had a raspberry wheat to start and then we also got a sampling tray! It was awesome! Everyone was crowded in there and we shared a table with a couple other groups and it was so much fun! After our beer we obviously had to pee…so on our way to the bathrooms we saw Amy Roloff signing copies of her new cook book! We got our photo with her and proceeded on to the sausage garden! We scored a great spot right under a heater with a few other folks and we both got Kielbasa dogs to start followed by a pretzel for me, a bratwurst for Shawn and a pitcher of beer to split. We were dunzo (or so I thought) after that and decided to walk around before the lighting. We visited some shops and bought a bunch of huge, leavenworth made, peanut butter cups from the chocolate factory! 4:30 rolled around and the lighting was beautiful! We loaded up the bus at 5:30 and headed home! We got to watch a Christmas Story on the way home, too! Overall, great day! Wish I could do that every weekend! Best Christmas gift I have ever received, so much more meaningful than a tangible gift.
It’s Friday! Yay! That means: I get to sleep in tomorrow. Hallelujah! I am very excited for this week because I will be celebrating my Birthday (yes, all week long…)! Sunday I am having a little gathering of friends at Shawn’s, Monday we are celebrating Christmas by going to Barking Frog for dinner with Teresa and Spencer, Tuesday I get my hair done, Wednesday I work but then we are having a little family gathering for my birthday, Thursday is my ACTUAL birthday so Shawn is taking me out to lunch and we are going to spend the day together, maybe get some last minute Christmas shopping done if we have any left! Friday I have the day off which means i will get to sleep in, Saturday Gwen and I are going to lunch/shopping to celebrate our birthday together like we do every year and Sunday, after church, Gwen and I are getting our make-up done (like we do every year) and going to Ruth’s Chris happy hour with Shawn and Kyle. It’s going to be an excellent week! So excited for Christmas!
