We are headed back to LA tomorrow. We have spent the past week in Washington State visiting my family for Christmas. We have been all over the state trying to see everyone. I wish I could have spent more time in my hometown. However, I was happy to drive through and at least get at D & M coffee (honestly the best coffee in the world even better than in Europe) and get lunch at the Palace Cafe (my friends and I all worked there in high school). I was surprised that some of the same people still work there and they remembered me. It was so much fun. We also had a chance to go skiing while we were in Wenatchee visiting my aunt. It was great fun. Living in Hawaii and California the past year I forget just how cold it can get in the Northwest.
I had a great Christmas at my mom's house. Going to my mom's house is like going to Martha Stewart's house. She goes all out. A few of my Christmas present highlights include : Heely's (the shoes that kids wear that have a wheel in the heel and you can skate around, I have never actually seen an adult wearing them but I figured I should start the adult trend), Sex and the City series (yes all 6 seasons, I am so excited to watch them all), a beautiful picture for my house, People Magazine year subscription, hand painted Italian platter...and on and on. It was a great Christmas.
