Christmas Eve Eve

Hi, guys! Remember me? Kaitlin? With Honey?

Life has been an absolute whirlwind lately. There was that whole new job thing, for one. I was at the job until 5:30 on Thursday and then basically immediately hopped on a plane to fly home overnight and arrive in Connecticut at 6:30 on December 23 (AKA Christmas Eve Eve, for those of you as obsessed with the holiday as I am.

To my delight, I arrived to see this:



My sister made and left that for me. Is she the best or what?

Anyway, I hadn’t been able to sleep much on the plane, so I went and napped for a few hours. But then, I woke up to this:


AKA my favorite and go-to East Coast breakfast.

Oh, and I also woke up to this (even better):


My dogs AND my little brother? I was a happy camper.



I think the dogs were, too. πŸ™‚ … Except when we locked out of the new (essentially) “no-no room.”



They got over it. πŸ™‚

Anyway, some of us still needed to do some last-minute Christmas shopping, so I went along for the ride. We hurried back, however, as my mom had planned for a family cocktail hour that evening to precede our nice dinner out.

We made drinks out of Frangelico, Kahlua, Vodka and splashes of milk.


It’s nice having a sister who’s been a bartender before. πŸ™‚



Soon, we went out to dinner at a nice new restaurant in town. It was tons of fun.


Family cheers:


… And soon, it was Christmas Eve. πŸ™‚
