… I lied. There is so much stuff that’s happened since the summer until now so for this post, it’ll be the tidbits leading to Christmas and beyond. Whatever had happened previously, I’ll have separate posts for each “event” which will most likely be mentioned with “(separate future post)” to the side.
There was this old, old, weird wreath we had that had cat cutouts and broken Christmas bulbs so I took all the shrubbery off and yes, I ripped the poorly glued cats off and recycled it into this using a few things!
Christmas eve/Christmas Day
My family tradition is to go to church Christmas eve and then open presents midnight. Our Christmas day is either for parties or gaining 80+ lbs watching reruns of The Christmas Story. Here are a few highlights:
The above collage sums up some of our presents from fam and from my boyfriend and I to each other.
I freaked when I opened my mom’s gift for me which is that beautiful Michael Kors bag (future separate post). Thank you ma!
My 2nd oldest brother always gives me funny gifts so he gave me pajamas with sushi and miso soup bowls and it says “MISO CRAZY” all over it haha.
ICON AIRMADA COLOSSAL HELMET
YES! I actually got a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 the first week of October (separate future post) and this is the helmet I’ve been wanting since I got the bike. Thanks babe! He always gives me the coolest stuff ^^
-Triumph flag: Patrick recently got a Triumph Daytona 675 after his Yamaha r6 got ran over (separate future post)… Yes I’m serious when I say got ran over. He has a yamaha flag up in his garage and since he got the new Triumph, I got him a flag for the garage.
-Ar15 tee: if you’ve followed my posts over the past few years, yes, we’re pro gun people. I thought it’d be nice for him to have an industry related tee to wear to work.
-Beer thangs: I made him a basket with a growler that says “hopped up like a kid on candy” and 6 different types of beer. He loves IPAs so I scrounged for some at World Market.
My 2nd oldest bro got me this as an “early open” present aaaand it’s definitely going on my desk at work.
That box contains 75 little baglets of Jelly Belly. Who doesn’t love Jelly Belly?! If you don’t, you suck -. –
It was my nephew’s first Christmas so he couldn’t come over to open presents at midnight. They came around noon and we opened our presents then.
Motorcycle angel bells
My brother and his wife gifted my boyfriend and I with angel bells for our motorcycles. For those of you who don’t know about them, look it up and you’ll see why it was one of the best Christmas presents for us riders especially coming from another rider aka my oldest brother.
… Us being weird after present opening
Our Christmas was SUPER awkward….
I say that because I live in the 757 of Virginia. As we all know, Hampton Roads is known for bi-polar weather. It was 70 degrees on Christmas day. Who knew it would be moto weather? Above is my ninjette upfront and my boyfriend’s 675 behind. We rode around the neighborhood for an hour and I didn’t drop woohooooo! I’m fairly new to riding although almost everyone in my fam including cousins ride. Since I got my bike in October, I haven’t gotten to practice much due to weather and being busy. I mean weather because October and November here was pretty frigid (so damn backwards for Christmas -. -) and my riding gear is pretty much a spring and summer set up.
… I didn’t mention I dropped a bike the first time I went riding did I? Nope! Future post! Lmao
As the world knows, the boyfriend and I are gamers. We started playing Project Zomboid which is super 90’s graphics but super realistic survival wise. Pictured above was Saturday the 27th. I had a bad dream so he made me feel better with Old Bay fries and tenders. What boyfriend cooks you gaming food?! My awesome boyfriend does!
Dead Rising 3 was a Steam sale the other day so we got that and have been playing. Almost all reviews mention the bugginess and pictured above is one of them on his computer.
I’ll be reviewing a few games (fps/mmo) in the near future as well.
Welp, that sums it up some. I apologize for this mess but I had to! I hope everyone’s holidays have been filled with being around loved ones and fun! Thanks for reading!
… Psst next post: thrifting after Christmas. I wanted to keep my fashion stuff separate!
